Primary malignant fibrous histiocytoma of the pancreas are rare. To our knowledge only 3 cases have been found in the literature. We report a new case of primary malignant fibrous histiocytoma of the pancreas in a 72 years old man. Various patterns were intermixed in this tumor: storiform, giant-cellular and myxoid patterns. After surgical resection, within one year, there were recurrence of the tumor and metastasis to the liver resulting in the death of the patient.
