Malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH) is a soft-tissue sarcoma originating from fibroblast cells, characterized by a high rate of metastasis or recurrence. With only 4 cases described in the available English literature up to now, gastric metastasis of MFH is extremely rare. Among them only one case has been reported to lead to gastrointestinal bleeding. We report the case of a 55-year-old woman who underwent total gastrectomy, 14 months after resection of an MFH from the right side of retroperitoneum. The neoplasm was detected at the time of diagnostic workup for upper gastrointestinal bleeding. The resected specimen contained multiple polypoid nodular lesions which were located in the greater curvature. The clinical and pathological characteristics of gastric metastasis of MFH are presented herein with review of literature.
