Head and neck fibrosarcoma are extremely rare, and fibrosarcoma arising is scalp is very rare with only occasional case reports. To be labelled as fibrosarcoma, it must lack features of well-defined fibrosarcoma subtypes and other entities. Here we report a case of a 48 years old female who came to surgery OPD with complaints of a painful nodule over the occiput. Excision was done and histopathology and immunohistochemistry confirmed the diagnosis of fibrosarcoma. We are here reporting this case because of its rarity and diagnostic difficulties.
