- JRC:3546 : angiomyofibroblastoma of the thigh.
- JRC:14780 : vulvar angiomyofibroblastoma.

Definition: Angiomyofibroblastoma shows a predilection for the vulvovaginal region during the reproductive years but which may also occur in the inguinoscrotal region in me.

Angiomyofibroblastoma is distinguished from aggressive angiomyxoma by its circumscription, greater cellularity, greater vascularity and virtual absence of recurrent potential.
