A brace from Emrah Bassan and Djibril Dianessy cancelled out Piotr Parzyszek sixth minute penalty for the visitors who had Nathaniel Will sent off in the 28th minute.
The result sees Fortuna Sittard move up one place to 15th in the Dutch Jupiler League with 34 points from 31 games.
Djibril Dianessy restored parity for Fortuna Sittard five minutes after they conceded and Emrah Bassan gave the hosts the lead in the 29th minute.
Bassan made it 3-1 in the 70th minute- his fourth goal of the season, but Bart Straalman scored a consolation for De Graafschap who are one spot above Fortuna Sittard despite the defeat.
