The specimen revealed fragments of loose and myxoid fibrous connective tissue (Fig 4). It is made up of stellate fibroblasts suspended on a delicate network of collagen fibrils and small blood vessels (Fig 5).

Figure 4.Low power (x100) histology illustrates myxoid fibrous connective tissue stroma made up of a small number of benign stellate and spindle-shaped fibroblasts suspended on delicate collagen fibers, myxoid background and few small blood vessels

Figure 5. Higher power (x200) histology illustrates a few spindle-shaped fibroblasts suspended on a delicate network of collagen fibers.
