Superficial Angiomyxoma of Axilla: A Rare Entity

Anushree Anup Vartak, Hitendra K Desai, Rajinish R Patel.

Superficial angiomyxoma, a benign mesenchymal tumour, arises from dermis and subcutaneous tissue. It is characterised by prominent thin walled blood vessels in myxoid matrix. A case of superficial angiomyxoma of axilla is reported to highlight the features of this rare entity, which is still a poorly recognized tumour, despite its first description by Carney and colleagues in 1985. The clinical presentation, radiological features, intra-operative findings, pathological analysis and literature review are presented.

Key words: Superficial angiomyxoma, cutaneous myxoma
