Abstract

Background. Metastatic spread of soft tissue sarcomas to the digits is extremely rare and metastasis of MFH to the fingers and toes has not been documented.

Purpose. We present two case reports of metastatic spread from a giant cell rich malignant fibrous histiocytoma to the digits and discuss their management.
