Abstract

A case of malignant fibrous histiocytoma of soft tissues of the right scapula associated with transitory hepatic dysfunction in the absence of liver metastases is reported. After primary radiation therapy, the patient manifested fever, anemia, thrombocytosis and hepatic dysfunction. All the abnormalities disappeared immediately after complete removal of the tumor. The patient was well, with no evidence of distant metastases, at more than 12 months later. It is concluded that the abnormalities of laboratory data were indirectly induced by the tumor, although the exact mechanism of this paraneoplastic syndrome was not clarified.
