Angiofibromas are small, reddish brown or even flesh-colored, smooth, shiny, 0.1- to 0.3cm papules present over the sides of the nose and the medial portions of the cheeks.[1]

In another words; angiofibromas are benign neoplasms of fibrous tissue in which there are numerous small and large, frequently dilated, vascular channels.

Diagnostic Findings

Skin: Cutaneous angiomatous proliferations within benign mesenchymal neoplasms: This angiofibroma consists of random proliferation of fibroblasts and small vessels (A). This figure also shows angioleiomyoma with multiple vessels within a stroma formed by bundles of benign smooth muscle (B) and angiolipoma, showing minute vessels and slips of vessel wall within mature adipose tissue (C).
