Histological examination ruled out a malignancy and showed myofibroblastic proliferation, consistent with nodular fasciitis (hematoxylin and eosin stain). (A) Low-power photomicrograph showing the zoned appearance of the tumor. In the lower left, myofibroblasts with a moderate amount of eosinophilic cytoplasm are seen arranged in a fascicular pattern. The upper right shows less well differentiated cells with larger nuclei and less cytoplasm (original magnification × 40). (B) Higher magnification photomicrograph from the less well differentiated area. A hemangiopericytoma-like appearance is seen, with arrangement of cells around thin-walled, irregularly branching blood vessels (original magnification × 100).
