Extraordinary Case Reports

A 72-year-old man presented with a single nodule in the right thigh of 12 years' evolution. Histopathology confirmed the diagnosis of angioleiomyoma. However, unlike other tumors of this type reported in the literature, marked nuclear pleomorphism without mitotic figures was noted.
