Treatment of Fibroma of Tendon Sheath: Simple excision is curative. Local recurrences are seen in about 25% of cases due to incomplete excision. They can be treated by re-excision.

This high magnification image shows stellate nature of many of the cells. Most lesions are hypocellular and show heavily collagenized stroma. Foci of increased cellularity may be present; however, such areas almost always will be seen merging with more typical hypocellular zones. The periphery of the lesion may contain cleft-like vascular spaces.
