Malignant fibrous histiocytoma is a sarcoma with rare occurrence in the oral and maxillofacial region; surgery is the most reliable treatment. Inadequate resection of the sarcoma on the oral and maxillofacial region is associated with a high incidence of local recurrence and a poor prognosis. Only few patients of malignant fibrous histiocytoma of the malar region have been previously reported in the literature. The authors report a new patient of malignant fibrous histiocytoma on the right malar region that treated a complete tumor surgical excision without lymph node dissection. Examination of the resected specimen revealed that the tumor was completely removed.
