  • Figure 2
    Vascularity US findings
     

    Colour Doppler imaging identified marked vascularity within the solid parts of the lesion and its periphery.

     
    Area of Interest: Soft tissues / Skin; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound-Colour Doppler; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Neoplasia;

    Power Doppler technique also identified marked vascularity within the solid parts of the lesion and its periphery.

     
    Area of Interest: Soft tissues / Skin; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound-Power Doppler; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Neoplasia;

    eFlow technique which is a recently introduced technique with increased sensitivity for demonstration of blood flow confirmed the previous findings with better spatial resolution.

  • Figure 3
    Histology findings
     

    Compact and cystic lesion in the dermis without communicating with the superficial epidermis (Haematoxylin Eosin, 16x)

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal soft tissue; Imaging Technique: Percutaneous; Procedure: Surgery; Special Focus: Neoplasia;

    Compact area of the neoplasm. Eosinophilic cells and clear cells are seen around (Haematoxylin Eosin, 100x)
