Abstract
Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is a relatively uncommon soft tissue neoplasm of cutaneous fibrous tissue with low to intermediate grade malignancy. Most of this tumour is focal origin, however the sequential occurrence of the two masses over breast and inguinal region in our case probably represents multifocal origin rather than metastases. To the best of our knowledge case of DFSP having multifocal origin as was our case, have rarely been documented In the literature.

Key words: Dermatofibrosarcoma Protuberns (DFSP); Mulifocal Origin; Cytology
