  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] A case of mixed adult Wilms' tumour and angiosarcoma responsive to carboplatin, etoposide and vincristine (CEO).
  • Here we report an unusual case of mixed Wilms' tumour and angiosarcoma in a 38-year-old female patient who presented with haematuria and right lower back pain.
  • Histopathology revealed differentiated adult Wilms' tumour with renal angiosarcoma, whereas the pathology of the para-aortic lymph node and bone metastasis revealed angiosarcoma only.
  • This case suggests that highly angiogenic tumours such as angiosarcoma may be effectively palliated using agents usually reserved for refractory Wilms' tumour, and supports the view that adult Wilms' tumour is more sensitive to such agents.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Detection and characterization of vascular endothelial growth factors and their receptors in a series of angiosarcomas.
  • BACKGROUND: Angiosarcomas are malignant mesenchymal neoplasms, including sarcomas of presumptive vascular endothelial origin and sarcomas of probable lymphatic origin.
  • The majority of angiosarcomas are thought to originate from vascular endothelia and spread via bloodstream to lung, but lymphatic metastases can occur.
  • METHODS: We investigated immunohistochemical expression of vascular endothelial growth factors (VEGF-A, VEGF-C) and their receptors (VEGFR-1, VEGFR-2, VEGFR-3) in a series of 34 angiosarcomas.
  • CONCLUSIONS: VEGF-A and VEGFR-1 were detected in diverse subtypes of angiosarcomas.
  • In cooperation, VEGF-A and VEGF-C are likely to be involved in the development of angiosarcoma associated with lymphedema.
  • Angiosarcoma of the scalp, which is traditionally considered as a true hemangiosarcoma, may include some cases of lymphatic origin.

  • [Title] Angiosarcoma of the breast: a rare clinicopathological entity.
  • OBJECTIVES: Angiosarcoma is a rare subtype of sarcoma that usually arises after radiation therapy for primary breast cancer.
  • Primary sarcomas of the breast are rare entities and account for less than 1% of all malignant breast neoplasms.
  • We examine our institutional experience with angiosarcomas of the breast that were diagnosed and treated between 1996 and 2007.
  • METHODS: To conduct a retrospective review, all female patients with a diagnosis of angiosarcoma of the breast were identified from our pathology database.
  • RESULTS: A total of 8 patients were identified who had a histologically confirmed diagnosis of angiosarcoma of the breast.
  • Seven (87%) patients had a history of prior radiation to the breast, whereas 1 (13%) had primary angiosarcoma.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Even though angiosarcomas are rare neoplasms, they are increasingly recognized as the result of more breast-conserving therapy.

  • Kaposi sarcoma is characterized by a proliferation of irregular jagged vascular channels, which partly surround preexisting blood vessels in some areas.
  • Cutaneous angiosarcoma (AS) is a malignant vascular neoplasm comprised of a meshwork of anastomosing irregular dilated vessels between collagen bundles and around skin appendages, lined by atypical endothelial cells.
  • The presence of promontory sign has not been emphasized in lesions other than Kaposi sarcoma, but seems to be a feature that is not uncommon in patch/plaque stage AS.

  • [Title] Primary and secondary angiosarcoma of the breast: the Mayo Clinic experience.
  • BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Angiosarcoma of the breast can be divided into primary and secondary.
  • The objective was to determine clinicopathologic factors associated with breast angiosarcoma and to compare primary versus secondary angiosarcoma.
  • METHODS: Breast angiosarcoma cases at Mayo Clinic from 1960 to 2008 were identified.
  • Characteristics of primary and secondary angiosarcoma were compared.
  • RESULTS: Twenty-seven cases of primary angiosarcoma and 14 cases of secondary angiosarcoma were identified.
  • The median age of primary angiosarcoma patients was lower than that of secondary angiosarcoma--43 years versus 73 years (P < 0.0001).
  • Primary angiosarcoma more frequently presented with a mass, whereas secondary angiosarcoma presented with a rash (P < 0.0001).
  • Median time from radiation to secondary angiosarcoma diagnosis was 6.8 years.
  • Median tumor size was 7.0 cm for primary angiosarcoma and 5.0 cm for secondary angiosarcoma (P = 0.7).
  • Tumors were high grade in 33% of primary angiosarcoma and 82% of secondary angiosarcoma (P = 0.02).
  • Five-year survival for primary and secondary angiosarcoma was 46% and 69%, respectively (P = 0.8).
  • CONCLUSION: Primary angiosarcoma occurs in younger patients than secondary and more frequently presents with a mass.
  • Mastectomy is the mainstay of treatment for breast angiosarcoma.
  • Breast angiosarcoma is a rare malignancy with poor long-term prognosis.

  • BACKGROUND: Ovarian angiosarcomas are rare tumors which may to be distinguished from other unusual primary ovarian tumors such as clear cell carcinoma, yolk sac tumor and leiomyosarcoma on the basis of histological appearance and immunohistochemistry.
  • Angiosarcomas of the ovary occur in all age groups but are more frequent in women of child bearing age (less than 40 years).
  • CASE: The case we present is the only reported long-term survivor of recurrent ovarian angiosarcoma.
  • CONCLUSION: Adjuvant chemotherapy of ovarian angiosarcoma with a combination of doxorubicin and ifosfamide appears effective and should be considered in women at risk of relapse who wish to conserve fertility.

  • One of the angiosarcomas was associated with conventional high-grade urothelial carcinoma (sarcomatoid carcinoma).
  • There was no statistical difference among the various lesions in terms of age, although angiosarcomas tended to arise in older patients (mean 71 y vs. 60 y of the remainder).
  • All cases of angiosarcoma and EHE involved the muscularis propria.
  • Two of four patients with angiosarcoma had a history of prior radiation therapy and all 4 were dead of disease at 6 months.
  • Angiosarcomas measured 3, 4.5, 5, and 5.8 cm in greatest diameter at cystoscopy.
  • Papillary endothelial hyperplasia occurs in the bladder and must be differentiated from angiosarcoma, which has a rapidly fatal outcome.

  • Post-breast cancer treatment-related angiosarcomas were first observed in lymphedematous extremities after mastectomy and are now being reported with increasing frequency after lumpectomy and radiation.
  • A case history is presented of a BRCA2 carrier who had a postmastectomy chest wall angiosarcoma but had neither therapeutic radiation nor clinically evident lymphedema.
  • The absence of established risk factors led to speculation that the BRCA2 germline mutation could be a causative factor in the development of this patient's angiosarcoma.

  • [Title] Sporadic cutaneous angiosarcomas: a proposal for risk stratification based on 69 cases.
  • Angiosarcomas have traditionally been considered high-grade lesions for which histologic features and grading have played no role in prognostication and, consequently, they have been excluded from the American Joint Committee on Cancer staging system.
  • We have, therefore, analyzed 69 cutaneous angiosarcomas seen in consultation and not associated with lymphedema or prior radiation therapy to determine if a combination of histologic and clinical parameters could be used to differentiate indolent from aggressive tumors.
  • In conclusion, we report that a combination of clinical and histologic features allows stratification of angiosarcoma patients into 2 risk groups that are strongly associated with marked differences in clinical course.

  • The high tendency to relapse, the capability in migration and to involve several localizations at the same time have induced the authors to deepen the research to exclude the possibility that it could be a Kaposi's sarcoma or a pyogenic granuloma and to get to an accurate diagnosis in order to resolve the disease.

  • [Title] Changing clinical presentation of angiosarcomas after breast cancer: from late tumors in edematous arms to earlier tumors on the thoracic wall.
  • Angiosarcoma is a rare complication of breast cancer treatment.
  • In order to define predictors, clinical presentation, and outcome, we characterized a population-based 50-year cohort of angiosarcomas after breast cancer.
  • Clinical data were collected from all females with previous breast cancer who developed angiosarcomas/lymphangiosarcomas on the thoracic wall/upper extremity between 1958 and 2008 in the Southern Swedish health care region.
  • In total, 31 angiosarcomas developed at a median age of 71 years.
  • The patients formed two distinct groups; 14 females treated for breast cancer with radical mastectomy and radiotherapy 1949-1988 developed angiosarcomas in edematous arms (Stewart-Treves syndrome) after median 11 years, and 17 females treated by segmental resection, anti-hormonal treatment and radiotherapy 1980-2005 developed angiosarcomas in the irradiated field on the thoracic wall after median 7.3 years.
  • In this population-based cohort, the early angiosarcomas developed in edematous arms after radical mastectomies, whereas more recent cases occurred after a shorter time period in the irradiated fields following breast conserving surgery.
  • We conclude that the clinical presentation of angiosarcomas has changed, parallel with altered treatment principles for breast cancer.

  • [Title] Primary hepatic angiosarcoma: imaging findings and palliative treatment with transcatheter arterial chemoembolization or embolization.
  • AIM: To describe the image findings and results of transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) or transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE) for treating primary hepatic angiosarcoma.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective review of the electronic medical database from 2002 to 2007, revealed six patients with primary hepatic angiosarcoma confirmed by percutaneous liver biopsy.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Primary hepatic angiosarcoma appears as a solitary or multiple, hypervascular lesions with heterogeneously early and progressive enhancement on CT and angiography.
  • Although TAE may be the primary procedure for achieving emergent bleeding control caused by the rupture of hepatic angiosarcomas, TACE may be effective for treating patients with a dominant hepatic angiosarcoma with or without intrahepatic metastases.

  • [Title] Paclitaxel in patients with advanced angiosarcomas of soft tissue: a retrospective study of the EORTC soft tissue and bone sarcoma group.
  • RATIONALE: Angiosarcomas of soft tissue represent a heterogenous group of rare sarcomas with specific clinical behaviour and risk factors.
  • Paclitaxel appears to induce tumour control in a higher proportion of patients with angiosarcoma, as compared to other sarcomas.
  • METHOD: Clinical data from patients with angiosarcomas of soft tissue treated with single agent paclitaxel were collected from the centres of the soft tissue and bone sarcoma group of EORTC, using a standardised data collection form.
  • Primary angiosarcomas were located in scalp and face in 8 patients (25%) and at other primary sites in 24 patients (75%).
  • Eleven (34%) patients had been irradiated before as treatment for angiosarcoma.
  • In 8 (25%) patients, the angiosarcoma occurred at sites of prior radiation therapy for other malignancies.
  • The response rate was 62% (21/32) in the whole series, 75% (6/8) in scalp angiosarcomas and 58% (14/24) in other primary sites.
  • For the face/scalp group it was 9.5 months, and for patients with angiosarcomas at other sites it was 7.0 months, respectively.
  • CONCLUSION: Paclitaxel was found to be an active agent in angiosarcoma of soft tissue in this retrospective analysis.

  • BACKGROUND: Primary hepatic sarcoma is a rare entity.
  • METHODS: Between January 1981 and December 2004, 30 patients with primary sarcoma of the liver and 5 patients with primary carcinosarcoma of the liver were treated.
  • RESULTS: Of the 30 patients with primary hepatic sarcoma (10 epithelioid hemangioendothelioma, 5 embryonal sarcoma, 5 angiosarcoma, 3 solitary fibrous tumor, and 7 other types), 11 underwent R0-resection and had a 5-year disease-specific survival of 64%.
  • Of these 11 patients, 4 had low-grade sarcoma and have not developed tumor recurrence.
  • In the group of 7 patients with high-grade sarcomas who underwent R0-resection, both patients with angiosarcoma died within 11 months, whereas the 5 patients with embryonal sarcoma had a 5-year disease-free and disease-specific survival of 80%.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The outcome of patients with primary hepatic sarcoma depends primarily on tumor histology and the ability to achieve complete tumor resection.

  • BACKGROUND: Angiosarcoma of the breast is a rare entity.
  • METHODS: Clinical and pathologic factors were analyzed in all patients with angiosarcoma of the breast treated between 1990 and 2003.
  • RESULTS: Fifty-five women with angiosarcoma of the breast were identified.
  • For the 32 patients with primary angiosarcoma of the breast 5-year OS was 59%.
  • These patients with radiation therapy-associated angiosarcoma were on average 30 years older and less likely to present with distant metastatic disease than patients presenting with radiation-naive angiosarcoma of the breast.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In this series of 55 patients with angiosarcoma of the breast, radiation therapy-naive angiosarcomas occurred in younger patients, but they behaved similarly to radiation therapy-associated angiosarcomas.

  • [Title] Clinicopathologic study of 24 patients with primary cardiac sarcomas: a 10-year single institution experience.
  • Primary cardiac sarcomas are exceptionally rare.
  • We present a 10-year, single-institution experience with 24 primary adult cardiac sarcomas.
  • The tumor size ranged from 2.0 to 17.0 cm (mean 7.2 cm), and, histologically, there were 10 angiosarcomas, 9 unclassified sarcomas, 3 synovial sarcomas, and 2 leiomyosarcomas.
  • All 10 angiosarcomas originated from the right atrium, whereas 5 of the unclassified sarcomas were from the left atrium.
  • In conclusion, angiosarcoma and unclassified sarcomas are the most common sarcomas of the heart accounting for 76%, but rare tumors such as synovial sarcoma and leiomyosarcoma may also occur in this organ.

  • [Title] Comparative genomic hybridization in four angiosarcomas of the female breast.
  • OBJECTIVE: Angiosarcomas represent a heterogeneous group of malignant vascular tumors occurring in different anatomic sites.
  • In the female breast, they account for less than 1% of all malignant tumors and mainly develop as secondary angiosarcomas after prior irradiation.
  • Data on cytogenetic findings in angiosarcomas are scarce and up to now no characteristic primary aberrations have been established.
  • We herein add molecular cytogenetic findings in another 4 angiosarcomas to 11 previously reported cases.
  • METHODS: We investigated four angiosarcomas of the female breast (three primary angiosarcomas and one secondary tumor after irradiation for breast cancer) for DNA copy number changes using comparative genomic hybridization (CGH).
  • RESULTS: All angiosarcomas revealed aberrant karyotypes including multiple DNA copy number changes involving various chromosomes.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Angiosarcoma of the female breast represents a genetically heterogeneous tumor entity without a readily identifiable pattern of common chromosomal alterations.
  • However, reviewing the cytogenetic literature on angiosarcomas of different sites, gains at 8q and 20p appear to emerge as the most frequent aberrations in at least a subset of these tumors.

  • Post-radiotherapy cutaneous angiosarcomas have been described in different locations, including the breast.
  • We present a case of cutaneous angiosarcoma of the breast, diagnosed 6 years after a carcinoma of the breast had been treated with radiation.
  • Considering the patient's symptoms, history and the changes observed via mammography, it was decided to completely excise the lesion followed by a simple mastectomy, with the diagnosis of angiosarcoma being confirmed.
  • Despite this fact, two years and one month later, the angiosarcoma recurred on the internal area of the mastectomy scar.
  • This complication usually appears 5-10 years after treatment with radiotherapy, so angiosarcoma should be ruled out if any angiomatous lesions later appear on skin that had been irradiated.

  • Tumours, including angiosarcoma lung metastases, are an unusual cause of pulmonary haemorrhage.
  • The patient died within 3 months after initial presentation and an autopsy revealed a chest wall angiosarcoma with pulmonary and cerebellar metastases.
  • CONCLUSION: Pulmonary angiosarcoma metastases should be included in the differential diagnosis of diffuse pulmonary haemorrhage, especially in a young, previously healthy patient with normal renal function, particularly as the pathological diagnosis may be difficult and even misleading.

  • CONCLUSION: A mass that shows homogeneous or heterogeneous hyperechogenicity at US (with associated architectural distortion) and has a hypervascular, hemorrhagic, and heterogeneous appearance and typical malignant enhancement characteristics at MR imaging should alert the radiologist to a possible diagnosis of angiosarcoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Twenty-five renal cases previously coded as "arteriovenous malformation," "hemangioma," and "angiosarcoma" were retrieved from the archives of 4 collaborating institutions and were reevaluated histologically.
  • On re-review, cases were classified as arteriovenous malformation (n=3), capillary hemangioma (n=14), and angiosarcoma (n=8).
  • Angiosarcomas were diffusely infiltrative with extensive parenchymal destruction; all showed at least small areas of conventional vasoformative growth, but were frequently dominated by spindled and epithelioid histology.
  • Cytokeratin expression was absent in all angiosarcomas.
  • Follow-up was available for 15 cases: all patients with arteriovenous malformation and hemangioma with follow-up were disease free after complete excision; 4 cases of angiosarcoma died of the disease at 1, 1, 6, and 11 months.
  • Angiosarcomas of the kidney are highly aggressive tumors with poor outcome and may have morphologic features (spindling and epithelioid change), which could result in confusion with sarcomatoid carcinomas and other renal mesenchymal tumors.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • RESULTS: Nestin was expressed predominantly in the cytoplasm of angiosarcoma, pancreatic adenocarcinoma and GIST samples, and some tumour cells expressed in the nucleus.
  • There was a statistically significant difference between the histoscore of nestin in high malignant GIST (2.2366 (0.6920)) and that in low malignant GIST (1.3783 (0.4268)) (p = 0.003); and also between that in high malignant angiosarcoma (1.9188 (0.2069)) and that in low malignant angiosarcoma (0.6474 (0.3273)) (p = 0.000).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Results suggest that the expression of nestin may play an important role in the development of some neoplasms such as GIST and angiosarcoma.

  • The term angiosarcoma, encompasses several neoplasms, all of which exhibit a malignant process derived from endothelial cells of the vessels.
  • The most common form of angiosarcoma is highly aggressive, often fatal, and usually affects the head and neck region of elderly white men.
  • Other low-grade forms of angiosarcoma, including papillary intralymphatic angioendothelioma, also known as Dabska tumor, are less invasive, affect a wider age range, and offer a better prognosis.
  • There are several predisposing factors that increase the risk of angiosarcoma and include chronic lymphedema of the extremities, preexisting vascular lesions, and prior radiation, often as therapy for other malignancies.
  • We report an unusual case of a very small, low-grade angiosarcoma on the thigh of an adult female with no known predisposing risk factors.

  • [Title] Primary angiosarcoma of the breast: clinicopathologic analysis of 49 cases, suggesting that grade is not prognostic.
  • Mammary angiosarcoma is a rare neoplasm, accounting for about 0.05% of all primary malignancies of the breast.
  • It is currently believed that histologic grading of mammary angiosarcomas plays an important role in prognostication.
  • Forty-nine cases of primary angiosarcoma of the breast were retrieved from our files.
  • In conclusion, mammary angiosarcoma is a rare disease that affects relatively younger patients.
  • This tumor seems to have an overall similar clinical course as other types of angiosarcoma arising in skin or soft tissue; it carries a moderate risk of local recurrence, and a high risk of metastasis and death.
  • In this large series, there is no correlation between histologic grade and patient outcome, more in line with angiosarcomas at other sites.

  • There is no controversy about the fact that liver transplantation for HCC in the adult population yields good results for patients whose tumour masses do not exceed the Milan criteria.
  • Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma is also an appropriate indication for liver transplantation, even in the presence of extrahepatic metastases, unlike angiosarcoma which is associated with a very poor survival and considered as a contraindication.
