She was diagnosed with malignant fibrous histiocytoma from the findings of cytological analysis of biopsied surface tissue, histopathologic analysis of biopsied, and immunohistochemical staining. In her past history, twenty years ago, she was diagnosed with cervical cancer, staging Ib and received surgical treatment and chemotherapy. Ten years ago, she received radiotherapy because of recurrence of cervical cancer in vaginal vault. After surgical excision for malignant fibrous histiocytoma, we recommended chemotherapy but she refused. After 24 months from initial diagnosis, she died.
