The surgical management of a hypogastric dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans.

Pan Afr Med J. 2019;34:116

Authors: Essid L, Sassi S, Khelil K, Sbai MA, Maalla R

Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is an uncommon skin tumor with intermediate grade of malignancy. Wide surgical resection with disease-free margin offers an excellent probability of cure. These large excisions cause large skin defect that can be difficult to cover. Through this case report we describe a surgically treated DFSP that was covered by a Mc Gregor flap; which despite its seniority is still relevant and continues to serve plastic surgery.
