Abstract

Sarcomas are malignant tumours rarely found in adults, having in the head and neck a percentage of about 1% of all malignant tumours found at this level. They evolve both from bone tissue and from soft tissue, being differentiated depending on the mesenchymal cell from which they derive. Fibrosarcoma can evolve anywhere in the head and neck, the most common locations being represented by the cervical region and the paranasal sinuses.In this article, the authors present a rare case by the clinical association of two histopathological entities in the case of a male patient, aged 71. The surgical resection of two left laterocervical formations was performed, the histopathological result and the immunohistochemical tests setting the diagnosis of 2nd stage fibrosarcoma and papillary thyroid carcinoma, for which the patient was under a complex specialized cancer treatment.
