Question:

Differential diagnosis of angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma includes all of the following except:
1. Ewing`s sarcoma
2. Fibrosarcoma
3. Synovial sarcoma
4. Pigmented villonodular synovitis
5. Malignant fibrous histiocytoma





Answer:

The correct answer for the question "Differential diagnosis of angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma includes all of the following except:" is:

4. Pigmented villonodular synovitis



Explanation
The differential diagnosis involves [metastasis, hemangioma, hematoma, malignant fibrous histiocytoma, myxoid chondrosarcoma, leiomyosarcoma with necrosis, malignant ossifying fibromyxoid tumor, and various other sarcomas.]  Pigmented villonodular synovitis (d) involves joints, whereas AFH generally does not.  Moreover, PVNS most commonly demonstrates homogeneous avid enhancement, whereas AFH is variegated and nodular.

Abstract
Angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma (AFH) is a rare soft tissue tumor most commonly occurring in children, adolescents, and young adults. Clinically and radiographically the lesion is easily confused with a hematoma, soft tissue hemangioma, or malignant fibrous histiocytoma. While the lesion is rare, due to the potential for local recurrence and metastasis, it is imperative to consider this lesion in the differential diagnosis of a soft tissue mass in a child or adolescent. Here, we present the clinical, radiologic, and pathologic findings of a case of AFH.
