... by relatively rapid fibrosis of the involved extraocular muscles. This results in a reduced elasticity with preserved or even forced contractility. Clinically the muscle appears stiff and inextensible. Affected patients develop an incomitant strabismus, i.e., the angle of strabismus varies in different...

... predominance of female patients). Tumor cells in aspirates have morphology reminiscent of normal smooth muscle and myofibroblastic cells. An important diagnostic pitfall is low-grade leiomyosarcoma (LMS), which displays more nuclear pleomorphism and coarser chromatin than leiomyoma. Cytologic Features...
