Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is a rare, locally aggressive tumor arising from the skin. We reported two cases who presented with a huge mass arising from the left upper anterior part of chest wall. We performed a wide local excision for two patients. Skin defect was closed with free split skin greft. Histopathological studies revealed the lesion to be dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans. Follow-up was three months for the first patient and 48 months for the second patient. There was no recurrence and metastasis in both patients.
