Synopsis

Dermatofibromas or histiocytomas, are common benign fibrohistiocytic tumors that tend to occur in a solitary fashion on the lower extremities. Some patients have several lesions but rarely more than 15. Twenty percent occur in children aged 17 years and younger. Occasionally, in association with immune disturbances (eg, leukemia, human immunodeficiency virus [HIV], systemic lupus erythematosus [SLE]), dermatofibromas are found in large numbers in grouped or linear clusters.
