Evidence of Chemoresponsiveness in Unresectable Metastatic Angiomatoid Fibrous Histiocytoma.
MetadataShow full item record
Angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma (AFH) is a soft tissue neoplasm of intermediate biological potential. Typically a slow-growing tumor, it can recur locally. Rarely, it manifests as a soft tissue sarcoma capable of metastasis. When metastases are nonamenable to local therapy, it is believed uniformly fatal. We present 3 patients with metastatic AFH who demonstrated a sustained response to chemotherapy; including one who achieved complete remission with cryoablation. These cases reinforce the potential value of chemotherapy in some patients with unresectable metastatic AFH and provide the first case in the literature of cryoablation in AFH.
