Follicular dendritic cell tumour (FDCT) or sarcoma is a rare tumour first described in 1986. Some 80 cases have been reported, the youngest being in teenagers. Our patient first presented at 9 years of age with a cervical mass that was removed and revealed an apparently benign, but florid reactive process. At age 14 the lump recurred and biopsy was diagnostic of FDCT. Radical block dissection showed disease to level III and 6 weeks of radiotherapy was followed by 6 months adjuvant chemotherapy. Three years after completing his final treatment he shows no signs of recurrent disease. © 2005 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
