Fibroadenomas with a predominant cystic change are called cystic fibroadenomas. These are extremely rare forms of fibroadenomas and only one case has been reported so far. They are classified under the category of complex fibroadenomas. Complex fibroadenomas are a rare variant of fibroadenomas occurring in elderly females. They are characterized by presence of one of the complex features along with the usual patterns of fibroadenoma such as cysts more than 3 mm, papillary apocrine metaplasia, or sclerosing adenosis. Patients with these lesions have higher chances of developing carcinoma of breast. We present a case of 35 years old lady with a freely mobile mass in the left breast diagnosed as cystic fibroadenoma after thorough histopathological examination of the lesion. © 2015 - IOS Press and the authors.

Nerve sheath myxoma defined by Harkin and Reed is an uncommon benign neoplasm with nerve sheath like features. It has several cytological and histological differential diagnoses. One such lesion is neurothekeoma, which can be differentiated using immunohistochemistry. In most of the previous reports nerve sheath myxoma and neurothekeoma were considered synonymous and were often confused for one another. This case report separates the two using immunohistochemistry. Also, the cytological features of nerve sheath myxoma are not well documented in the past. This case report attempts to display the cyto-morphology of nerve sheath myxoma. We report a rare case of nerve sheath myxoma diagnosed on cytological features confirmed by histopathology and immunohistochemistry in a 32-year-old lady who presented with an asymptomatic nodule over the left cervical area and discuss its cyto-histological mimics. © 2015, Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research.
