What about angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma?

Angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma usually has a fibrous capsule and is associated with a dense lymphoplasmacytic infiltrate so that it sometimes looks like a lymph node under low power.

I called this a vascular malformation with areas of thrombosis. The blood vessels have thick walls and a haphazad arrengement. The spindle cells are reactive probably due to recanalization of the thrombus. No vacuolated pseudoadipocytic cells were seen either (typically seen in spindle cell hemangioma)
