Aggressive angiomyxoma is a rare, locally invasive mesenchymal tumor predominantly presenting in women of reproductive age and also having a moderate-to-high risk for local relapse. Hence, it needs to be differentiated from other mesenchymal tumors occurring in this region. We present here a case of a 40-year-old female presenting with a large, fleshy, pedunculated mass on the right labia majora.

The study was to evaluate the clinicopathological features of aggressive angiomyxoma (AAM) of the female pelvis and perineum and its treatments. This was a retrospective study of female patients with AAM admitted to our hospital. Clinical and pathological data were analyzed, as well as the postsurgical follow-up. Median age at initial presentation was 41 years. Thirteen patients had lesions involving adjacent organs. Eighteen patients underwent complete tumor resection, while one patient underwent partial tumor resection...

AIM: Aggressive angiomyxomas (AA) are rare tumors, most commonly presenting in the pelvis of women of childbearing age. This study presents the results of selective marginal resection of this disease in patients managed at a single institution. METHODS: Patients diagnosed with AA from July 2001 to July 2015 were identified from a prospectively maintained histopathology database. RESULTS: Seventeen patients were diagnosed with AA in the study period...

INTRODUCTION: Aggressive angiomyxoma is a rare mesenchymal tumor occurring predominantly in the pelvi-perineal region. It is more common in females during their reproductive age. Our focus is on the surgical approach for a recurrent angiomyxoma. CASE PRESENTATION: We present a case of a 36-year-old female patient with a recurrent lower back and perineal bulges. One year ago, she had the same presentation and underwent resection of that mass in a peripheral hospital without available information...

Aggressive angiomyxoma (AA) is an uncommon mesenchymal tumor that is mostly derived from the female pelvic and perineal regions. AA is a locally infiltrative slow growing tumor with a marked tendency to local recurrence. Painless swelling located around the genitofemoral region is the common symptom; thus, it is often misdiagnosed as a gynecological malignancy or a groin hernia. A 35-year-old female patient who previously underwent surgery for left femoral hernia operation resulting in surgical failure was reoperated for a giant AA located in the pelvis...

Introduction. Aggressive angiomyxoma is a rare mesenchymal neoplasm. Although benign in the majority of the cases, these neoplasms usually present a locally infiltrative nature and high rates of recurrence. Due to its rarity, misdiagnosis is a common problem. Case Presentation. We present one case of aggressive angiomyxoma in a 25-year-old pregnant woman. The patient presented with a large vaginal mass that was interpreted as a vaginal cyst. We performed surgical resection of the neoplasm and the correct diagnosis was only achieved after histological examination...

Aggressive angiomyxoma (AAM) and angiomyofibroblastoma (AMFB) are two rare types of mesenchymal tumors with overlapping clinicopathological features. In certain cases, the differential diagnosis between the two tumors is difficult even for experienced pathologists. The present study reported the case of a well-circumscribed soft tissue mass on the anterior wall of the vagina in a 25-year-old woman. The mass was initially removed without disturbance to the adjacent tissues. The histopathological features included spindle cells in inconspicuous myxoid stroma and a well-demarcated mass without evidence of invasion, which prompted the initial diagnosis of AMFB...

We report a case of vulvar aggressive angiomyxoma (AA) which is a rare, slow growing and benign tumor of mesenchymal origin, but has a high risk of local recurrence. A 49-year-old Japanese female was referred to us with a large mass of the left vulva, measuring 15×9.5×9 centimeters. She underwent surgical excision of the tumor with no evidence of recurrence on a 5-year follow up. In this case, histopathological examination and immunohistochemical staining after excision revealed a diagnosis of vulvar AA with estrogen and progesterone receptors positive...

Aggressive angiomyxoma (AAM) is a rare benign mesenchymal tumor that occurs almost exclusively in the soft tissues of the pelvis and perineum. Very few cases of AAM occurring outside these regions have been reported. The present report presents a case of AAM originating from the liver of a 50-year-old female patient. Tumor resection was performed, and pathological examination revealed microscopic features that were characteristic of AAM. Histopathological examination showed that the tumor was composed of scattered spindle-or stellate-shaped cells with thick-walled blood vessels lying in a myxoid stroma...

Aggressive angiomyxoma, a rare soft tissue benign neoplasm, predominantly occurs in the female pelvic peritoneum and perineum region during reproductive age. It is slow growing, locally infiltrative, and has a high risk of local recurrence and the neoplastic character of blood vessels. The standard treatment is surgery. We report three unusual aggressive angiomyxoma cases. The first case was a pedunculated mass of the left labium major; the second, a left perineal mass that infiltrated into the paravesical area via the obturator foramen; and the third, a big mass in the retroperitoneal cavity, found that growing aggressive angiomyxoma looked like lava expulsion in the pelvic area...

Aggressive angiomyxoma is a rare mesenchymal tumour predominantly affecting the female pelvis and perineum but has also been described in males. This tumour can often present a diagnostic challenge and has a propensity for local recurrence after surgical excision. We present an unusual case of aggressive angiomyxoma arising from the bladder of a female patient which required local excision and Mitrofanoff formation.

Aggressive angiomyxoma is a rare mesenchymal tumor with a typical presentation as a slowly growing perineal soft tissue mass in paravulvar and pararectal region in young adult women. We present 3 cases of aggressive angiomyxoma with clinicopathological correlation and describe their main imaging features with emphasis on magnetic resonance imaging, adding useful information about their behavior on dynamic contrast-enhanced sequences and diffusion-weighted imaging and including a comprehensive review of the existing literature...

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the value of CT and MRI in aggressive angiomyxoma (AAM) of the pelvis. A series of four cases from three institutions are reviewed. Among the four cases, three were initially misdiagnosed, and local recurrence necessitated reoperation or angiographic embolization. The fourth case, with accurate preoperative diagnosis, was followed with no recurrence. CT and MR imaging demonstrated a well-defined mass, which displaced adjacent structures. Attenuation of the mass was less than that of muscle on unenhanced CT, and a swirling or layering internal architecture was found using both enhanced CT and TI-weighted MR imaging...

INTRODUCTION: Angiomyofibroblastoma is a benign, rare mesenchymal tumor arising from the genital tract of both men and women and was first described by Fletcher and colleagues in 1992. The tumor needs to be distinguished from other, similar lesions, such as deep and superficial aggressive angiomyxoma and cellular angiofibroma, because aggressive angiomyxoma demands much more extensive treatment. The vast majority of angiomyofibroblastomas arise from the vulva and appear as solid cystic masses on ultrasound images...
