Myofibroblastoma of the breast is a rare benign neoplasm, which has rarely been reported in association with gynecomastia. We report a case of a 25-year-old male patient with an epithelioid myofibroblastoma arising in a context of bilateral gynecomastia. The lesion was composed of nests and cords of epithelioid cells, with round to oval nuclei, granular chromatin, and distinct nucleoli dispersed in a myxoid to collagenous stroma with marked vascular proliferation.
