Aneurysmal Fibrous Histiocytoma (AFH) is a distinct and a rare clinicopathological variant of Cutaneous Fibrous Histiocytoma (CFH). It differs from the usual benign fibrous histiocytoma clinically and morphologically with high rate of recurrence. Here, we report a case of AFH with history of recurrence which presented as a polypoid swelling and showed vascular spaces with no endothelial lining which was proved negative by CD34 immunostaining. The spaces were bordered by tumour cells.
