  Case Report : In this paper a case of benign fibrous histiocytoma in the tongue of a 44 - year-old man is reported . In microscopic view spindle cell Fascicules , along with infiltration of multinucleated giant cells was presented and for definitive diagnosis immunohistochemistry staining for SMA, , Desmin, MSA, CD68 and CD34 was conducted.
