Abstract


Benign fibrous histiocytoma is an uncommon presentation in the head and neck region. Composing of fibrous and histiocytic elements, these tumor are known to recur in almost a third of the cases if not excised completely. We hereby report a case of Benign Fibrous Histiocytoma (BFH) of the nasal dorsum completely removed by external approach. Although clinically the possibility of this diagnosis was not suspected, the procedure was tailor made right from the incision to excise the lesion in toto leading to no residual tumor or any morbidity. Knowledge of the possibilities of rare pathologies presenting as benign cysts should not be ignored in the head and neck. Keywords:Benign Fibrous Histiocytoma; Nose; Head and Neck
