It is a benign tumor composed of well differentiated, near to normal smooth muscle cells. These cells are elongated or spindle shaped, with abundant deeply eosinophylic cytoplasm and a cylindrical nucleus with blunt ends (“Havana cigar”). Occasionally, a large perinuclear vacuole squares or indents one end of the nucleus.
