sclerosing hemangioma

Etymology: Gk, skleros + haima, blood, angeion vessel, oma tumor
a solid cellular tumorlike nodule of the skin or a mass of histiocytes, thought to arise from a hemangioma by the proliferation of endothelial and connective tissue cells.

benign fibrous histiocytoma

A benign tumour composed of primitive mesenchymal cells (macrophages or histiocytes) seen in the skin and soft tissues of the legs of young to middle-aged patients, more commonly women, usually in relation to skeletal muscle.
