The article presents a case report of a 44-year-old Japanese male patient with a history of a subcutaneous mass on the left medial eyebrow region, which was consistent with the diagnosis of subcutaneous benign fibrous histiocytoma (BFH). The result of further examinations revealed a lobulated tumor infiltrated into surrounding muscle at the periphery, with involvement of a large nerve. A comparison of cutaneous BFH with subcutaneous or deep BFH is offered.
