Hamartomatous lesion composed of: fat, collagen, smooth muscle, nerves and lymphatic vessel (i think).

The spindle cell lipoma often shows a pseudoangiomatous pattern...in this case you can see branching cavernous spaces, lined by flattened endothelial cells and villiform fibrolipomatous projections. Difficult for me, but I'm thinking of a pseudoangiomatous variant of Spindle Cell Lipoma.

I called this a vascular malformation (mainly venous) with thrombosis and secondary papillary endothelial hyperplasia. The lesion was mainly located in the hypodermis that is why we see so much fat. The presence of dystrophic blood vessel and nerve bundles within the lesion is a good tip pointing towards a malformative vascular lesion (reference)
