Atypical fibroxnathoma (AFX) is a pleomorphic spindle cell neoplasm of the dermis, and is a clinically-benign reactive lesion, despite apparently malignant histologic features. We describe a case of 16-year-old female with recurrent AFX which developed on the occipital scalp. The lesion was totally excised by Mohs micrographic surgery and no recurrence was observed during one year follow up period. It is uncommon for AFX, such as the present case, to develop on a non-sun-exposed area and hi adolescence.
