Anticancer Research; Mallett KE, Almubarak S et. al.

Jan 1st, 2022 - Dermat of ibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is a soft-tissue sarcoma with a high risk of local recurrence, though typically never metastasizes. DFSP can transform into high-grade fibrosarcoma (DFSP-FS), which has a risk of metastasis. Currently, treatment for DFSP includes Moh's micrographic surgery (MMS); however, this is not recommended for DFSP-FS. Often, the transformation to DFSP-FS is not re...
