Fibrous histiocytoma usually develops indiscriminately in skin and any soft tissues of the body. To date, tumors occurring in soft tissues of the head and neck, especially around the nose, have been rarely reported. In most cases, benign fibrous histiocytoma develops as a painless mass lesion and most commonly originates in sun-exposed skin, extremities, and orbital tissue. Recently, we experienced a case of benign fibrous histiocytoma in the nasal dorsum in a 36-year-old woman who complained of a mass in the nasal dorsum. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case of benign fibrous histiocytoma originating in the nasal dorsum in a Korean.
