This is the most likely explanation; however, this finding reminds us that investigators have postulated that GCTs putatively arose from Meissner and Pacinian corpuscles (40) and that, without the aid of in situ lesions, assigning a cell of origin to soft tissue tumors remains a practical histopathologic challenge.
However, some of the nerve endings, called Pacinian corpuscles, are relatively deep - about 2 millimetres - under the skin, raising questions about how they could detect such subtle vibrations.
Mechanoreceptors such as Meissner's corpuscles, Pacinian corpuscles, Merkel's disks, and Ruffini endings are responsible for the detection of tactile input.
