Mesenchymal Hamartoma Shoulder-MRI
MR shows well defined heterogenous SOL in subacromial and superior aspect shoulder with no marrow oedema or joint involvemnt or rotator cuff involvement Smooth muscle hamartoma is an uncommon, usually congenital, cutaneous hyperplasia of the arrectores pilorum muscles. We report a case of this rare tumor in a 19-year-old man. The disease started several years ago as multiple small skin-colored papules that subsequently coalesced to form a large soft plaque on the back of the left shoulder. The diagnosis of acquired smooth muscle hamartoma was confirmed on histopathology. The patient was reassured about the benign nature of the lesion and was not advised any treatment.
