We describe a 38-year-old woman with extensive dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans of the forehead and discuss the advantages of using a multispecialty approach in the treatment of this case. The patient had had an incomplete resection 15 years previously, with a misdiagnosis of the actual tumor type. After undergoing a biopsy and a computed tomographic scan, the patient underwent Mohs micrographic surgery, followed by split-thickness grafting. Ultimate reconstruction was performed 15 months later using bilateral temporoparietal fascial flaps, in addition to split-thickness grafting. The patient remains tumor-free 3 years after resection.
