leiomyoma cutis

leiomyoma cutis
a leiomyoma arising from cutaneous or subcutaneous smooth muscle fibers, occurring singly or multiply, usually in the form of lesions arising from arrectores pilorum muscles (piloleiomyoma); it may also occur as a solitary genital lesion arising from dartoic, vulvar, or mammillary muscle or as a solitary angioleiomyoma (q.v.) arising from the muscle of veins. Lesions are smooth, firm, painful, often translucent or waxy nodules, with interlacing bundles of elongated rod- or spindle-shaped cells and finely fibrillar cytoplasm.
