Abstract

Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is an uncommon, low-grade sarcoma of fibroblast origin with an incidence rate of 0.8 cases per million persons each year. Although it rarely metastasizes, initial misdiagnosis, prolonged time to accurate diagnosis, and large tumor size at diagnosis are common. These updated 2007 guidelines include changes in recommendations for considering radiation therapy, as well as those regarding surgical margins in some patients.
