The article discusses the increased metastasis of malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFN) in patients having non-hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) and chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Study shows that the survival free and the overall survival of recurrence were not different between five controls and cases. It points out that the cases were more likely to have metastasis than controls. It adds that MFH behaves more aggressively in the presence of NHL or CLL.

    In contrast to benign tumors, malignant tumors, by definition, are characterized by the potential of giving rise to metastases. Albeit infrequently, skin metastases do occur, and their clinical appearance varies over a wide morphologic spectrum. We present the case of a 65-year-old male with...
