Case Discussion

Sacral tumour: intraosseus haemangioma.  

Final Diagnosis Comment:  

The sections show a soft tissue proliferation composed of a myxoid spindle cell matrix within which are dispersed vascular structures of varying dimeter and thicknesses, typical of a hemangioma. The spindle cell matrix is considered reactive and coexists with fresh hemorrhage and hemosiderin deposition. The lesional tissue is present at the biopsy margins.
