Multinucleate Cell Angiohistiocytoma

Multinucleate Cell Angiohistiocytoma

David Cassarino, MD, PhD

Low-power examination of multinucleate cell angiohistiocytoma shows a dermal-based proliferation of small vessels with focal telangiectasia and increased numbers of stromal cells.

Higher power view shows a proliferation of numerous small blood vessels and scattered enlarged, angulated mononuclear and multinucleated image stromal cells.



  • Multinucleate cell angiohistiocytoma (MCAH)


  • Proliferation of vessels and multinucleated stromal cells



  • May actually represent a nonneoplastic reactive process

  • Some authors consider MCAH a variant of dermatofibroma
