Angiomyofibroblastoma is a rare mesenchymal tumor usually originating from the vulva and vagina with only one reported case arising from fallopian tube. We describe a second case of tubal angiomyofibroblastoma treated successfully with laparoscopic complete resection.

Angiomyofibroblastoma is a rare mesenchymal benign tumor that frequently occurs in young- to middle-aged women, arising from the genital tract. There are many overlapping radiological and immunohistochemical features with other stromal cell lesions, making the diagnosis difficult. We report here a case of a 29-year-old woman admitted for a pelvic mass, in whom, the histopathological and immunohistochemical studies led to the diagnosis of angiomyofibroblastoma.

Groin lesions can be classified as neoplastic or non-neoplastic. Neoplastic lesions include lipoma, epidermoid cyst, angiomyofibroblastoma-like tumor, liposarcoma, and synovial sarcoma, as well as metastases from lymphoma, neuroendocrine carcinoma, and carcinomas of the lung, breast, urinary bladder, ovary, vulva, and colon. Non-neoplastic lesions include hernias, round ligament varices, endometriosis, Kimura disease, Castleman disease, hematoma, and inflammation. Because the clinical implications and therapeutic strategies for groin lesions vary depending on the cause, the ability to noninvasively differentiate among etiologies is very important...

Angiomyofibroblastoma is an unusual tumor of pelvic and vulval region. It is often diagnosed in the middle-aged women. Although benign owing to its location and morphology, it has a few benign and malignant mimics. Here, we present such a case where a 42-year-old female presented with a vulval mass.

A variety of extratesticular tumors and tumor-like conditions can occur in the scrotum. Angiomyofibroblastoma is a rare, slow-growing, well-circumscribed mesenchymal tumor, found predominantly in women, and is even a more unusual occurrence in the male genital tract. We describe a case of a 64-year-old male presenting with a scrotal painless mass. On sonography, a well-circumscribed extratesticular mass was present. As no specific imaging findings were present, it was a surprise to learn that the subsequently excised mass proved to be an angiomyofibroblastoma-like tumor...

Introduction: Angiomyofibroblastoma is a rare benign myofibroblastic neoplasm which mainly occurs in the soft tissues of the pelvi-perineal region of females. Aim: To present an unusual case of angiomyofibroblastoma mimicking an inguinal hernia in a 62-year-old male. Material and methods: The patient was hospitalized with an irreducible, painless inguinal mass and surgical intervention for inguinal hernia was decided. The well-defined nodular mass was sent for histological examination...

Male genital tract angiomyofibroblastoma (AMF) is a rare benign tumour, with a total of 34 cases reported in literature. We are presenting a case of AMF of the glans penis in a 68-year-old man who presented with a progressively increasing in size large lesion located on the tip of his penis. Following routine investigations, the lesion was surgically excised with no adjuvant treatment, the patient was followed-up for 5 years with no evidence of local, nodal or distant recurrence. As AMF of the glans penis is extremely rare, there is not enough literature to support management guide lines, but it appears that AMF responds very well to complete surgical excision; occasional cases of recurrence have been previously reported, so a long-term follow-up is advised...

Superficial angiomyofibroblastomas are mesenchymal tumours that occur in the genital tract and are well described pathologically. This case report reviews the imaging appearances and highlights the MRI findings, which have not been previously described. We describe the occurrence of this lesion in a vaginal cyst, which to the authors' knowledge, has also not been previously described. The histological findings are also presented here.

Paratesticular tumors account for 5% of tumors originating in the scrotum. Angiomyofibroblastoma-like tumor is a rare benign mesenchymal soft tissue tumor found in the genital region in both sexes and is even rarer in the spermatic cord. The origin of this tumor remains the object of speculation, but it is believed to originate from perivascular mesenchymal cells. The purpose of the present case report is to expand knowledge on the histology of this rare paratesticular tumor.

Background: Angiomyofibroblastoma (AMFB) is a benign mesenchymal tumor most commonly found in the female genital tract of premenopausal women. Although rare, AMFB is an important consideration in the differential diagnosis of vulvar and vaginal masses, as it must be distinguished from aggressive angiomyxoma (AA), a locally recurrent, invasive, and damaging tumor with similar clinical and pathologic findings. Case: We describe a patient with a 4 cm vaginal AMFB and the relevant preoperative radiographic imaging findings...

Angiomyofibroblastoma (AMF) represents a rare, benign mesenchymal tumor with a predilection for the vulvovaginal region, which may be misdiagnosed as aggressive angiomyxoma (AAM). Herein, we report a case of a 20-year-old nulliparous Chinese woman with a unique pedunculated and polypoidal mass, which had been developing within the previous 6 months in the left labium majus, exhibiting the AAM clinical impression but diagnosed as AMF. The mass measured 18 × 10 × 6 cm, and contained diffuse ulcerated areas and purulent discharge...

Angiomyofibroblastoma (AMF) is a rare benign mesenchymal tumor with tendency to arise in the lower genital tract of middleaged women, predominately in the vulva. A few cases of AMF in males have been reported involving the scrotum, perineum or spermatic cord. We report a new case of AMF arising in the right inguinal region of a 27-year-old man. The tumor was well-circumscribed, myxoid and measured 30 mm in maximum dimension. On microscopic examination, the tumor was composed of spindle cells without atypia and with less than one mitosis figure per 10 high-power fields...

A 50-year-old woman (gravida 2, para 2) first noticed a small nodule in the right labium majus 2 years prior to the initial visit to the Hachinohe Red Cross Hospital (Hachinohe, Japan), which had gradually increased in size. On physical examination, a well-circumscribed, elastic, firm, goose egg-sized, subcutaneous mass protruding from the right labium majus was identified. On magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), the lesion was hypointense on T1-weighted images and was well-circumscribed, strongly enhanced and homogeneous on gadolinium-enhanced images, measuring 7...

Angiomyofibroblastoma (AMF) is a distinctive, rare, benign mesenchymal tumor that often occurs in the lower genital region of women. The most commonly reported location of an AMF is in the vulvovaginal area. We describe a rare case of an AMF located in the broad ligament in a 47-yr-old woman. The patient experienced menorrhagia, dysmenorrhea, and subsequent menstrual spotting. She sought help at the National Cheng Kung University Hospital. Ultrasonography showed an echo-complex mass in the left adnexal area...

Angiomyofibroblastoma is a rare benign soft tissue tumor that arises predominantly in the female genital tract. It occurs less commonly in the scrotum, spermatic cord, and the retroperitoneum. Its diagnosis is based on specific histological and immunopathological features. However, the condition has never been previously described in the extremities. We present the first case report of angiomyofibroblastoma presenting as a slow-growing tumor in the foot of a 48-year-old lady.

OBJECTIVE: To study the first reported case of intravesical angiomyofibroblastoma (AMFB). AMFB is an uncommon benign mesenchymal lesion, mostly described in the lower female genital tract, especially in the vulva and less commonly in the vagina. It is rarely seen in the male genital tract. The importance of this rare neoplasm is related to its potential mimicry of more infiltrative and prognostically less favorable lesions, such as aggressive angiomyxomas, that are found in the same anatomic area...
