Atypical Fibroxanthoma (AFX)

Mohs Specialist | Mohs Surgeon | Houston | The Woodlands | Springs | Katy

(AFX)  Atypical fibroxanthoma  is a type of tumor that effects primarily in older individuals after the skin of the head and neck has been damaged by sun exposure and/or therapeutic radiation. Clinically, lesions usually are suggestive of malignancy because they arise rapidly (over just a few weeks or months) in skin in which other skin cancers have been found and treated. When this clinical impression is combined with highly anaplastic pathology, misdiagnosis can result in unnecessary and extensive surgery and radiation.
