The angiomyofibroblastoma-like tumor of the male genital tract is a rare benign tumor. A total of 34 cases have been reported in the literature. We herein report an exceptional case of solidocystic form in its paratesticular location, in a 79-year-old man. Clinical examination objectified a right testicular induration. Macroscopic examination of the orchidectomy objectified a paratesticular solidocystic tumor formation. Microscopically, the solid area was composed of vessels with small caliber and turgidity of endothelial cells...

Angiomyofibroblastoma is a rare, well circumscribed benign mesenchymal neoplasm, usually arising in the pelviperineal region, especially the vulva and apparently composed of stromal cells distinctive to this anatomic region. Preoperative diagnosis of Angiomyofibroblastoma is very difficult, mostly diagnosed as Barthloin cyst due to its anatomical location. It is a histological diagnosis. In this article we report a case of Angiomyofibroblastoma of vulva.

Lipomatous angiomyofibroblastoma is extremely rare, with only 16 cases reported to date. We herein describe an additional case arising in the left vulvar region of a 49-year-old woman. The resected 5.3-cm yellowish tumor predominantly consisted of fat cells (85% of the tumor), together with medium- and small-sized vessels, multifocal fibrotic areas and pseudoangiomatous spaces. Spindle, rounded, and/or epithelioid tumor cells proliferated in a nest and/or cord-like pattern, or singly within perivascular fibrous tissues and between fat cells...

AIMS: MED12 exon 2 mutations have been identified in most uterine leiomyomas and mammary fibroepithelial tumours. MED12 has not been genotyped in most other gynaecological mesenchymal tumours. The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of MED12 mutations in uncommon gynaecological mesenchymal tumours. METHODS AND RESULTS: Sixty-eight uncommon gynaecological mesenchymal tumours were genotyped for MED12 exon 2, including 27 Müllerian adenosarcomas (including three tentatively diagnosed as 'variant adenosarcomas'), six cellular angiofibromas, six aggressive angiomyxomas, five angiomyofibroblastomas, five superficial myofibroblastomas, five atypical polypoid adenomyomas, and 14 endometrial stromal sarcomas...

INTRODUCTION: Angiomyofibroblastoma (AMFB) is an extremely rare disease. It commonly occurs in middle-aged females and mainly involves the vulvovaginal region. Pathological examination plays an important role in differentiating from other tumors. But far less published literature focus on the imaging characteristics of AMFB. CLINICAL FINDINGS/DIAGNOSES: We reported a case of AMFB in a 73-year-old male, involving the mediastinum with computed tomography (CT) imaging and pathologic findings...

Angiomyofibroblastoma is a rare and benign tumor that usually involves vulvovaginal area in women of reproductive age and early menopause. We report a lipomatous angiomyofibroblastoma in a 55-year-old multigravid woman. This tumor measured 9 cm in size and contained prominent mature adipose that comprises about 50% of the tumor.

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...

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...

Angiomyofibroblastoma is a very rare benign mesenchymal tumor of the superficial soft-tissues. Most of the cases have been reported in the vulva. It presents usually in the reproductive age group. Histologically it is characterized by alternating hypo and hypercellular areas admixed with thin walled blood vessels with a perivascular concentration of stromal cells. We report a case of this lesion arising in the vagina in a 46-year-old woman.

Cellular Angiofibroma (CA) represents a quite recently described mesenchymal tumour that occurs in both genders, in particular in the vulvo-vaginal region in women and in the inguino-scrotal area in men. The first description of this tumour dates from Nucci et al. article in 1997; since then, the literature reports different reviews and case report of this tumour in both genders, but no article specifically addressing CA treatment and follow-up in women. In this review we collected all 79 published female CA cases, analyzing the clinical, pathological and immunohistochemical features of the tumour...

Angioleiomyoma is a relatively rare type of leiomyoma of the uterus that originates from smooth muscle cells and contains thick-walled vessels. Angioleiomyoma is usually found in the skin of the lower extremities. Uterine angioleiomyoma has similar morphological features to that of the skin. The authors present a case of a 50-year-old woman who was admitted to the present hospital with the complaint of lower abdominal pain. On clinical examination, she was found to have a palpable lower central abdominal mass...

Mesenchymal neoplasms of the vulvovaginal and inguinoscrotal regions are among the most diagnostically challenging specimens in the pathology laboratory owing largely to their unique intersection between general soft tissue tumors and relatively genital-specific mesenchymal tumors. Genital stromal tumors are a unique subset of soft tissue tumors encountered at this location, and this group includes fibroepithelial stromal polyp, superficial (cervicovaginal) myofibroblastoma, cellular angiofibroma, mammary-type myofibroblastoma, angiomyofibroblastoma and aggressive angiomyxoma...

We report a rare case of angiomyofibroblastoma (AMFB) of the vulva, composed predominantly of a mature fatty component, representing approximately 60% of the entire tumour. The tumour, designated as "lipomatous AMFB", should be interpreted as the morphological result of an unbalanced bidirectional differentiation of the presumptive precursor stromal cell resident in the hormonally-responsive stroma of the lower genital tract, with the adipocytic component overwhelming the fibroblastic/myofibroblastic one. The close admixture of adipocytes with spindled/epithelioid cells of the conventional AMFB resulted, focally, in a pseudo-infiltrative growth pattern and pseudo-lipoblast-like appearance, raising problems in differential diagnosis, especially with well-differentiated lipoma-like liposarcoma and spindle cell liposarcoma...

We report 3 cases of the extremely rare lipomatous variant of angiomyofibroblastoma (AMF) involving the vulva of women aged 35, 45, and 47. The lesions ranged in size from 2.5 to 12 cm in maximum dimension and the largest had a gross "fatty" appearance. The percentage of adipose tissue was approximately 50% in 1 case and over 90% in the other 2. In all the cases, there was a background of typical AMF with bland spindled and epithelioid cells arranged around blood vessels, although in the cases with >90% adipose tissue, this was subtle and diffusely interspersed with the adipose tissue...

INTRODUCTION: Angiomyofibroblastoma is a tumor which is consists of two components: blood vessels and stromal cells, with always prominent vascular component. Angiomyofibroblastoma is benign tumor, but in literature is reported a case of recurrence and one case with sarcomatous transformation, which shoved that these tumors may rarely be associated with malignant component. CASE REPORT: A 78-year-old multiparous housewife was hospitalized at University Clinical Center because of painless, asymptomatic tumor of vaginal portion (posterior side)...

Vulvar angiomyofibroblastoma is rare tumor of obscure histological origin. Here a case of 49-year old woman is described with this intriguing benign vulvar entity. The tumor developed at left vulvar labia and clinically imitated Bartholin cyst with clinical complaints of regional discomfort without pain. A macroscopic evaluation revealed well separated, encapsulated tumor of 3,5 cm in diameter. On cut surface the tumor was whitish, flesh, solid with myxoid appearance without any apparent cysts formation. There were alternating hypo- and hypercellular in the neoplasm...

Angiomyofibroblastoma represents a rare, benign mesenchymal tumor with a predilection for the vulvovaginal region. Lipomatous change may occur but rarely comprises a substantial component of the lesion. There are only eight reports in the English language literature describing the lipomatous variant of this tumor. We describe a further lipomatous angiomyofibroblastoma that occurred on the labium majus of a 49-year-old woman. The histopathologic and immunohistochemical features are described, and the collective experience in the literature is reviewed...
