Abstract

The authors address a group of loosely associated, characteristically benign soft tissue neoplasms that exhibit partial myoid differentiation. The entities share similarities in morphology and in nomenclature that have historically created confusion. The authors attempt to clarify the distinct architectural patterns and the corresponding immunophenotypic and ultrastructural features that distinguish myofibroma, myopericytoma, myoepithelioma, and myofibroblastoma.
