Dermato fibrosarcoma Protuberans (DFSP) represents a group of mesenchymal spindle cell tumors that typically involve both dermis and subcutis. Diagnosis of dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans by FN AC may be difficult. We report a case of a 38 year old male presenting with a recurrent mass in the thumb region diagnosed as dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans on FNAC and confirmed by histopathology.
