Abstract

Abstract Enzinger and Weiss' classified angiomatoid malignant fibrous histiocytoma (AMFH) as a subtype of malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH). Clinically, AMFH manifests itself as a multinodular or multicystic, hemorrhagic mass.1 We saw a patient with a markedly bleeding, cystic tumor on chronic radiodermatitis of the lower abdomen. The risk of massive bleeding and its development on chronic radiodermatitis is reported herein. Report of a Case A 62-year-old woman was admitted to the hospital in June 1982, because of a bleeding, cystic tumor on chronic radiodermatitis of the lower abdomen. In 1966 she underwent total hysterectomy for cervical carcinoma and was put on a radiotherapy with a total of 8,000 rads of cobalt 60. She had noticed a fingertip sized nodule on chronic radiodermatitis six years prior. The nodule was symptomfree. It grew to be about the size of a table tennis ball during one year.
