The Angiomatoid Fibrous Histiocytoma is a rare tumor of soft tissues, which occurs mainly in children and young adults, with low malignancy grade. It has the capacity of local recurrence, but rarely metastizes. It is frequently difficult to differentiate this from vascular tumors, namely hemangioendotheliomas and angiosarcomas, or simply organized hematomas. The authors present a case of a patient with an angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma of the arm, treated with radiotherapy after three postsurgical recurrences.
