This report presents a 70-year-old male who presented with a rare malignant fibrous histiocytosis after high-dose proton radiation therapy for anaplastic astrocytoma. To our knowledge, malignant fibrous histiocytosis caused by proton therapy has not been reported, therefore the clinical features of this complication are described and previous cases are reviewed.
