(2,7,8) Duhig and Ayer, in their investigation of 61 angioleiomyomas, considered them to be vascular hamartomas.

Chondroid lipoma is a peculiar benign tumor first reported by Meis and Enzinger in 1993. Subsequent studies have demonstrated this tumor either to be composed solely of white fat without true cartilage differentiation or to demonstrate both adipocytic and chondrocytic differentiation. Histomorphologically, chondroid lipoma is composed of mature lipocytes
, lipoblast-like cells, and chondroblast-like cells embedded in a chondromyxoid matrix, closely mimicking myxoid liposarcoma and myxoid chondrosarcoma.
transfected the human lipocytes
using PEI-NLS-GFP labeled plasmid, which showed higher gene transfer potency than the nonNLS group, even on day 7 .
As a result of decreased fat accumulation in response to chronic (3 months) estradiol or Vitex agnus castus treatment serum leptin (a hormone produced by lipocytes
) was also significantly reduced when compared to rats fed with phytoestrogen-free food (Fig.
