Diffuse neurofibroma rule out desmoplastic melanoma

Agree with these considerations. I would definitely first run S100 to rule out a melanocytic or a neural lesion. Neurofibromas can have fat metaplasia. In the high power views there doesn't seem to be substantial nuclear atypia, therefore I doubt it's a demoplastic melanoma. If S100 is negative then then consider spindle cell lipoma or DFSP. Would also run CD34.

spindle cell tumor from dermis and infiltrating into fat tissue

looks bland

shall do s 100 and Sox 10 and Cd34

if sox 10 negative, but s 100 positive, Cd 34 negative- a list of tumors like NF/

if sox 10 negative s100 and Cd 34 positive- fusion transcript driven tumors

only cd 34 could be DFSP but will look for fusion transcripts as bland cellular pattern sir

DFSP, sclerosing variant, with some Giant Cell Fibroblastoma-like features, as perivascular lymphocytes.

Agree with the differentials, I favor DFSP but we need inmunos for sure.

Yes, DFSP. COL1A1-PDGFB fusion was detected by FISH. The tumor was a bit inflammatory a finding that is rare in this neoplasm
