Benign vaginal rhabdomyoma: a light and electron microscopic study.
A benign vaginal rhabdomyoma from a 49-year-old woman was examined by light and electron microscopy. While many of the ultrastructural features conformed to those noted in previously described rhabdomyomas, certain features are described for the first time. These include attachment plaques between cells enclosed within a common basement membrane, cytoplasmic bodies, and peripheral couplings. Finally, the literature is reviewed and the reported cases of rhabdomyoma are divided into adult and fetal types based upon light microscopic criteria.
