Comments:
A typical case of intramuscular myxoma has a mucoid, gelatinous appearance due to the abundance of myxoid matrix. In cases where collagen predominates, the appearance is more fibrous (shown here). This 8 cm tumor involved thigh muscles in a middle-aged man. Despite its circumscribed appearance, it infiltrated the adjoining skeletal muscle (top) microscopically.
