Jeong Yeon Kim, Chang Won Ha, Kyung Ja Cho, Ja June Jang
Neurothekeoma is a rare benign cutaneous tumor. We describe a case of neurothekeoma in the neck of a 51-year-old female. She complained of an anterior neck mass and tingling sensation. Wide excision and functional neck dissection were done. Histologically the tumor showed smal1 nests of tumor cells in myxomatous stroma and fibrous trabeculae. The cytoplasm was pale staining or eosinophilic and the nuclei were hyperchromatic and pleomorphic. The tumor showed reactivity for S-l00 protein but the histogenesis is uncertain until now. There is few report of neurothekeoma arising from neck on the literature, so this is a rare case of neurothekeoma.
Key words: Neurothekeoma, Neck mass
