  • 1Department of Pathology, NRS Medical College, Kolkata 700014.


A 35 years old female presented with a left inguinal swelling. Histopathological examination with routine haematoxylin and eosin, Van Gieson's and Congo red stains revealed the swelling to be intranodal palisaded myofibroblastoma. Immunohistochemistry was done and the myofibroblastic nature of the tumour cells was proved. Accurate diagnosis of intranodal palisaded myofibroblastoma is important for therapeutic and prognostic reasons. This case is reported here because of its very rare occurrence and the diagnostic dilemma that it possesses.
