A cutaneous myxoma, AKA superficial angiomyxoma, consists of a multilobulated myxoid mass containing stellate and/or spindled fibroblasts with pools of mucin forming cleft-like spaces. There is often a proliferation of blood vessels and an inflammatory infiltrate. Staining is positive for vimentin, negative for cytokeratin and desmin, and variable for CD34, Factor VIIIa, SMA[disambiguation needed], MSA[disambiguation needed] and S-100.
Clinically, it may present as solitary or multiple flesh-colored nodules on the face, trunk, or extremities. It may occur as part of the Carney complex, and is sometimes the first sign. Local recurrence is common.
