The electron microscope features of three primary cardiac rhabdomyomas and one skeletal muscle rhabdomyoma arising from the floor of the mouth are compared, along with a review of the previously reported ultrastructural features of skeletal rhabdomyomas. Cardiac rhabdomyoma filaments appear more orderly and have features suggestive of origin from both(More)
