See mucoid, def. 1.

myxoid

adjective
(1) Mucin-like.
(2) Any “loose”, pale-to-lightly basophilic stroma, as stained by H&E; the few cells present include fibroblasts and rare chronic inflammatory cells. Myxoid stroma occurs in nodular fasciitis, intramuscular myxoma, ganglion cyst, chordoma, neurofibroma and carcinomas, as well as spindle cell lipoma and lipoblastoma and in myxoid variants of sarcomas, which generally have a better prognosis.
