Myofibroblastoma (MFB) of the breast is the prototypical benign spindle cell tumor arising from the mammary stroma. Over the last two decades, several morphological variants of this tumor have been recognized. Epithelioid cell MFB is composed predominantly of neoplastic elements with epithelioid morphology. It represents a potential diagnostic pitfall of malignancy, especially when evaluating small biopsies. We report a unique case of a mammary epithelioid cell MFB composed of large mono- to… CONTINUE READING
