Dermatofibroma - Symptoms & Treatment


A dermatofibroma, as the name suggests, is an area of dermal fibrosis, frequently related with epidermal thickening and hyperpigmentation, giving rise to its look as a light tan to dark brown papule. They are typically small (5 mm in diamter), slightly elevated, and indurated (hard). They may be found anywhere on the body, but favor the lower extremities. Related histological entities are histiocytoma and sclerosing hemangioma.

Dermatofibroma can occur in patients of any age, but it normally rise in young adulthood. Approximately 20% of the lesions occur before age 17 years. DF is very likely better classified as a neoplastic process rather than a reactive tissue change. Though any cutaneous site can be seen, palm and sole participation is rare. Such known lesions were highly cellular, of large size, and localized. Lazy pulmonary metastases also were observed. The outermosts are the most common sites of involvement, specifically the lower legs. The few case reports of metastatic DF are doubtful from the point of view of past diagnosis.

A dermatofibroma is a general benign fibrous skin lesion. A dermatofibroma is too occasionally called a fibrous histiocytoma. It is because of a non-cancerous development of dermal dendritic histiocyte cells. The cause is unidentified but in a few cases it arises at the site of a minor damage, particularly an insect bite other thorn prick. It is a form of urticaria wherein skin welts grow along the lines where one has been stroked other scratched. They are typically single but sometimes can be multiple. Dermatofibromas occur most often in women the male to female ratio is about 1:4.   

Causes of Dermatofibroma

Some causes & risk factors of Dermatofibroma are as follows:

  • Insect bites.
  • Minor injury other thorn pricks.
  • A prick of a thorn.

Dermatofibroma Treatment

Most doctors will advocate treatment only if the wound is in the way of shaving, other is becoming irritated by clothing. Removal can be done surgically with local anesthesia , but since much of the development extends below the surface of the skin, the scar may be bigger and more perceptible than the original tumor.

  • Metastatic carcinoma of the skin.
  • Topical steroids other steroid injections.
  • Removal can be done surgically with local anesthesia.
