Abstract
Background: Dermatofibroma or Benign fibrous histiocytoma is a benign skin growth. It is a common cutaneous nodule of unknown aetiology that occurs more often in women. Vrana Granthi is one of the Vrana Upadrava. Acharya Vagbhata has described about the Vrana Granthi which occurs due to Apathya Sevana, improper Bandhana, and trauma by a stone in a person with wound.

Objectives: To correlate histiocytoma and with Vrana Granthi.

Materials and Methods: The reported case was of a 20 years old female patient who presented in the Shalya Tantra OPD, with the complaints of growth with itching, burning sensation & swelling in the sternal part of chest since 6 months.

Observations and results: The lesion morphologically looked like Keloid. The condition was diagnosed as benign fibrous histiocytoma (Vrana Granthi) after Chedana Karma (Excision) of the lesion under local anaesthesia through histopathological study.

Conclusion: Histiocytoma is a rare case which morphologically similar to Keloid. Any surgical interventions may have chances of recurrence and hence condition should be ideally managed with medical treatment.
