Adult myofibroma is an acquired and superficial soft tumor with identical histological features as infantile myofibroma. It is tipically localized in the dermis and hypoderm. Adult Myofibroma is part of a group of tumors showing perivascular myoid differentiation with histologic features of glomangioperycitoma, myopericytoma and myofibroma. It likely arises from a pluripotent endothelial cell capable of differentiating along muscle, pericyttic and glomus cell lines. A case of solitary adult myofibroma in a 56-year-old woman with a high tendency to relapse after surgical exeresis, is described.
