Ann Thorac Surg. 2001 Jul;72(1):283-5. doi: 10.1016/s0003-4975(00)02567-4.

Abstract

Angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma (AFH) is a rare tumor of soft tissue with low-grade malignancy that occurs most commonly in the soft tissues of the extremities or trunk. We present a case of AFH of the mediastinum, which is a very unusual site for this tumor. The patient has survived with no recurrence of the disease for 60 months after surgery and adjuvant radiotherapy.
