Multiple fibrous histiocytomas of the dermis (dermatofibromas) were found in six males of one family. A number of the tumors fell within the histologic patterns commonly encountered in dermatofibromas, but some were unusually large and others were cytologically atypical. In addition, the proband died of a malignant fibrous histiocytoma of the lung. We believe that this is a syndrome and a familial variant of a common dermal entity.
