Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is a nodular cutaneous tumor with high recurrence rate characterized by a prominent storiform pattern. DFSP of the breast is extremely rare and even rarer is DFSP of the male breast. The aim of this article is to present a case report of right breast DFSP (T1N0M0 Stage 1B) in a 13-year-old male. The diagnosis of this case report was based on clinical examination, histology of core, and excisional biopsies as well as immunohistochemistry.
