Abstract

We describe the case of a 5-year-old boy found to have an enlarging mass of the posterior neck. The patient underwent an uneventful excision of the mass, and pathologic examination revealed it to be an angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma. This case report presents a review of the recent literature of this rare soft tissue tumor.
