Malignant Fibrous Histiocytoma (MFH) typically arises in the soft tissue of the extremities and retroperitoneum, and the head and neck region is seldom involved. We present a case of MFH of the preauricular area treated by radical excision of the tumor with local bi-lobed flap reconstruction and postoperative radiotherapy. MFH of the preauricular area is a difficult site to treat, but combined therapy using radical excision of the tumor with local bi-lobed flap reconstruction and postoperative radiotherapy showed good cosmetic and functional results.
