Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Various salient histological features were rated from + to +++ in a semiquantitative evaluation of a series of 155 cases of fibrous histiocytoma. Relations between individual histological features, as well as between histological findings, localisation and size of lesions, and age or sex of the patient were tested statistically. Most impressive was an inverse proportional relationship between cellular and fibrillar densities: highly cellular fibrous histiocytomas chiefly showed little fiber formation. Accordingly, cases with marked fiber formation were distinguished by low cellularity. Based on this statistically significant relation, 3 subtypes could be classified on a scale of increasing fiber formation and decreasing cellular density. The majority of cases showed medium cellularity and fibrillar density, with distinct storiform (spokewheel or "whirlygig") pattern which is compatible with typical storiform histocytoma, including clincally progressive, recurrant FH and/or "dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans". The typical patient was more frequently female than male, 40 years of age with a 0.5 to 1.0 cm size tumor node in the lower extremities located in the corium, often with beginning infiltration of the subcutaneous fat tissue.
