Case Information:Case Num 6 (case id: 14570)
Organ: Peritoneum (ischiorectal fossa)
Diagnosis: Aggressive angiomyxoma
TISSUE FROM: Ischlorectal fossa A
This 85-year-old female was seen for pelvic discomfort. She had had a hyterectomy in the
remote past. Physical examination showed a herniation of loops of bowel protruding through the
introitus. At that work-up, a swelling was noted in the region of the ischiorectal fossa of the right
buttock area. At the time of repair of her pelv'ic hernia, a well circumscribed mass was removed from
the right ischiorectal fossa.
The 245 gram, 9.0 x 3.0 x 0.4 em mass was partially covered by gray white mucosa. Its cut
surface was edematous, fleshy and gmy-white to yellowish-gray.
