There is infarction of fat with adjacent capillary proliferation and scattered spindle or stellate cells with enlarged hyperchromatic nuclei. The overlying skin is intact, unlike in the decubitus ulcer Fig. 44 Myofibroma. Primarily found in infants, this lesion is composed of myofibroblasts that are actin positive but lack desmin and h-caldesmon.

Pleomorphism and necrosis are absent, but normal mitotic figures sometimes are seen. Mast cells are a typical feature Fig. 5 Mesenteric fibromatosis. 1 Intermediate Tumors 39 Fig. 6 Plantar fibromatosis. Plump epithelioid and spindle myofibroblasts are distributed in dense collagen.
