Abstract

Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is a lesion best known for its slow but relentless growth and tendency for recurrence. The most important aspect of the surgical treatment of DFSP as emphasized by several authors is the accurate and meticulous primary resection with adequate margins. While DFSP most commonly involves the trunk, extremities, scalp, and neck, occasional cases located in the face have been reported. A DFSP lesion involving the lower lip mimicking squamous cell carcinoma is presented in this case report.
