Abstract

Malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH) rarely occurs in the chest wall. A case of MFH originating from the chest wall is herein reported. We performed radical en-block resection of the whole chest wall together with the tumor and reconstructed it with Marlex mesh. There was no recurrence 4 years after operation. We consider radical en-block resection for MFH and reconstruction with Marlex mesh a safe operation and may provide a long-term survival.
