Fibrous histiocytomas (FHs) of the oral cavity are exceedingly rare. We report a case of fibrous histiocytoma located in the soft palate of an 11-year-old male. A review of the English literature shows only 4 previously reported cases in this location. This report includes an overview of the clinical and histopathological features of this fibrohistiocytic disorder. A review of the current classification, as well as the diagnosis and management of these neoplasms as they pertain to the head and neck region are discussed.
