Dr. Kushwanth, Dr. Venkatachalam

Abstract: Malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH)is a rare malignant primary bone tumour that contains a mixture of fibrogenic cells that are histologically similar to histocytes.Histologically MFH appear as large multi-nucleated malignant cells ,with abundant cytoplasmic nuclei. Incidence: MFH constitutes less than 2% of all primary malignant bone tumours. Common in males. A number of histological subtypes have been described including (1,2) storiform-pleomorphic: most common 50-60% myxoid: 25%,myxofibrosarcoma inflammatory: 5-10% giant cell: 5-10% angiomatoid Location: distal femur (most common) >proximal tibia>proximal humerus (rare).
