Abstract

We report a rare case of angiomyolipoma located in the subcutis on the nose. A 54-year-old female first noticed a small, asymptomatic mass on her nose in 1994 and underwent tumor excision in April 1999. Histopathological examination revealed a typical form of angiomyolipoma, showing a proliferation of mature adipocytes, smooth muscle fascicles, and small- to medium-sized blood vessels.
