Date Received: Date Revised: Date Accepted:

Rothmund–Thomson syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive genodermatosis characterized by early onset of poikiloderma and several other cutaneous and organ involvements. We are going to report a 14-year-old girl who has been diagnosed with Rothmund– Thomson syndrome since she was 3 years old and has been suffering from pain and swelling of the right elbow and forearm for about 6 months. There are few previous reports on Rothmund–Thomson syndrome associated with malignant fibrous histiocytoma. We decided to report this case as another supporting document for this association.

Keywords: poikiloderma, malignant fibrous histocytoma, Rothmund– Thomson syndrome
