AIMS The ultrastructural detection of leiomyomatous rather than myofibroblastic features in some cases of myofibroblastoma of the breast led some electron microscopically orientated pathologists to doubt the commonly accepted myofibroblastic nature of such a tumour, so the alternative terms 'myogenic stromal tumour' or 'variant of leiomyoma' have been proposed. The aim of this study was to analyse the immunohistochemical expression of h-caldesmon, a reliable marker in distinguishing smooth… CONTINUE READING
