Malignant fibrous histiocytoma of the heart. A case report

Academic Article


  • Malignant fibrous histiocytoma is a recently recognised common sarcoma of late adult life which, rarely, may arise in the heart. Unlike the atrial myxoma which it may mimic clinically, malignant fibrous histiocytoma is a far more aggressive tumour with a greater tendency for local recurrence and infiltration. A case of a primary intracardiac malignant fibrous histiocytoma is reported and relevant published reports reviewed.
