Pediatric Acral Angioleiomyoma: Report of an Unusual Case and Review of the Literature.Fetal Pediatr Pathol. 2019 Jun; 38(3):257-262.FP
Angioleiomyoma is a classic painful cutaneous tumor of the limbs of middle aged adults. They are usually a straight-forward histologic diagnosis, being well-circumscribed or encapsulated lesions with both smooth muscle and vascular components.
We report the case of an angioleiomyoma on the toe of an 8-year-old girl which displayed an unusual plexiform growth pattern. It was treated successfully with surgical excision, with no recurrence at one month.
Angioleiomyoma is uncommon in children, particularly at acral sites. We describe the first such lesion to display a plexiform growth pattern.
