Reporting of a Subcutaneous Follicular Dendritic Cell Sarcoma Occurring in the Cheek

September 9, 2020 Medicine and Medical Science 0

We report a subcutaneous follicular dendritic cell sarcoma (FDCS) in the cheek. Follicular dendritic

cell sarcoma is a rare neoplasm. Here we report the case of an 81-year-old woman presenting with

the chief complaint of swelling of the left cheek. We could only diagnose granulation tissue based on a

core-needle biopsy, thus, we decided to excise the tissue for definitive diagnosis. At first, we

considered a B-cell lymphoma, but the diagnosis of FDCS was made following immunostaining of

FDC markers. Tumor resection was performed without any other treatments such as

chemoradiotherapy. No recurrence has so far been detected for three years. In the head and neck,

FDCS occurs with a predilection for the tonsils. This appears to be the first report of a case of FDCS

occurring subcutaneously in the cheek. Currently, there are several options for treatment and can only

be standardized by accumulating experience with future cases.
