Comments:
This benign tumor can be found in subcutaneous tissues in a variety of locations. It is composed of stellate and spindled fibroblasts separated by abundant collagenous matrix. Focal myxoid features may be present. Some cases show a translocation involving 11q12 supporting a neoplastic origin for this lesion. Treatment is by simple excision.
