The benign fibrous histiocytoma is a part of the so-called “fibrohistiocytic tumors” of the soft tissues. It’s a mesenchymal tumor composed of fibroblasts and histiocytes. This tumor has often been described in the skin, however it may be localized in other soft tissues including those of the oral cavity. In this paper a case of benign fibrous histiocytoma of floor of the mouth mucosa is reported. Clinical and histopathological aspects are discussed by comparing them with literature data.
