Definition

A relatively rare, spindle-cell, fibroblastic tumour that typically shows a prominent haemangiopericytoma-like vascular pattern. It is histopathologically characterized by the presence of round to spindle-shaped cells, hyalinized stroma formation, thin-walled branching blood vessels, and thin bands of collagen.
