Abstract
Benign fibrous histiocytoma is a tumor composed of a mixture of fibroblastic and histiocytic cells that are often arranged in a cartwheel or storiform pattern and accompanied by varying number of inflammatory cells, foam cells, and siderophages. Benign fibrous histiocytoma represents one of the common soft tissue tumors with most cases presenting in the skin. The common sites of incidence are the limbs, trunk, head, neck, and posterior peritoneal cavity: less commonly, these lesions arise in female reproductive organs. This report documents a case of benign fibrous histiocytoma arising in the ovary of 48 year-old female whose chief complaint was abdominal pain.
Key Words: Benign fibrous histiocytoma, Ovary
