Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP): Predictors of recurrence and the use of systemic therapy
Antineoplastic Combined Chemotherapy Protocols
Neoplasm Recurrence, Local
DFS after treatment for DFSP is strongly predicted by tumor depth in the primary setting and margin status in recurrent tumors. The treatment for DFSP in the primary or recurrent setting is excision with negative margins, resulting in low recurrence rates and infrequent metastatic spread. Multimodality treatment, especially TKI use, can be effective, but is not curative.
