Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans is an uncommon, locally aggressive, cutaneous, soft tissue sarcoma. It is most commonly seen on the trunk and it frequently recurs locally after an incomplete excision, but distant metastasis is rare. Patients need postoperative local irradiation even with histopathological clear margins, following wide excision, owing to its high affinity for local recurrence. Here, we are reporting a case of recurrent dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans which was seen over the lower part of the abdomen.
