Abstract

An atypical fibroxanthoma characterized by aneuploidy and local aggressive behavior was misdiagnosed as malignant melanoma. The reported case contributes to a better understanding of malignant fibro-histiocytic proliferations. A considered evaluation including immunohistochemistry is needed in diagnosing malignant melanoma.
