J Surg Case Rep. 2024 Jan 16;2024(1):rjad738. doi: 10.1093/jscr/rjad738. eCollection 2024 Jan.


Dermatofibrosarcoma Protuberans (DFSP) is a rare, locally aggressive fibroblastic mesenchymal neoplasm, typically derived from the dermis, with the intramammary subtype being seen infrequently. We present a case of a 40-year-old woman whom was diagnosed with an intramammary DFSP during pregnancy, whom underwent successful surgical management during her second trimester. Our case demonstrates the importance of increased clinical awareness in the diagnosis and treatment of breast DFSP with careful multidisciplinary consideration.
