The authors report the ultrastructural characteristics of myopericytoma, a recently described variant of perivascular (pericytic) tumors, mainly with regard to their myopericytic cells and vessels. Myopericytes range between pericytes and vascular smooth muscle cells (SMCs) in a morphologic continuum. The principal findings of the intermediate phenotypes are (1) elongated or annular morphology with processes of varying length and thickness (usually long and thin); (2) a continuous, irregularly… CONTINUE READING
