Primary malignant fibrous histiocytoma of the female breast (MFH) occurs very rarely, and only 22 cases have been reported so far. We describe a 42-year-old female in whom MFH of the breast was diagnosed, and review the available literature. In accordance with knowledge concerning the biological and clinical behaviour of breast MFH, either wide local excision or mastectomy combined with axillary lymph nodes dissection is recommended, due to the high rate of recurrence and metastatic potential of this tumour.
