A Case of Myopericytoma and Review of Korean Literature

  • 1Department of Dermatology, Chung-Ang University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea


Myopericytoma, previously called as hemangiopericytoma, is a rare, soft tissue neoplasm. It usually presents as an asymptomatic solitary lesion, and it most commonly affects the lower extremities. It is characterized by the distinctive perivascular organization of oval-to-spindle-shaped cells in a concentric pattern. Here we report a case of myopericytoma, which was diagnosed in a 60-year-old woman who presented with a one-year history of a deep-seated nodule and reviewed previous cases in the Korean literature and found a predominance of female cases of myopericytoma, contrary to known predilections. Hence, we have reported a typical case and summarized clinical findings in the Korean population.
