7. Shin JW, Park HS, Kim BK, Kim YA, Kim MG, Won CH, Cho S: Aneurysmal benign fibrous histiocytoma with atrophic features. Ann Dermatol; 2009 Feb;21(1):42-5

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Aneurysmal benign fibrous histiocytoma with atrophic features.
  • Aneurysmal benign fibrous histiocytoma is an uncommon pathologic variant of dermatofibroma.
  • In addition to the features of a typical dermatofibroma, it has large cleft-like or cavernous blood-filled spaces with numerous hemosiderin pigments.
  • Atrophic dermatofibroma is also a rare variant of dermatofibroma, and the combination of aneurysmal and atrophic features is rarer still.
  • We report a case of aneurysmal benign fibrous histiocytoma with atrophic features in a 27-year-old male who had a grayish-brown atrophic patchy lesion on his back for 2 years.

  • [Title] [Basal cell carcinoma overlying a dermatofibroma].
  • [Transliterated title] Carcinoma basocelular sobre dermatofibroma.
  • The epidermis over a dermatofibroma may show changes that range from simple hyperplasia to the proliferation of basaloid cells, which can become morphologically indistinguishable from basal cell carcinoma.
  • The existence of a true basal cell carcinoma overlying a dermatofibroma is infrequent.
  • These basaloid proliferations have usually been considered to be the result of the inductive effect of the fibrohistiocytic proliferation of the dermatofibroma on the epithelial cells of the hair follicle; therefore, it would be a reactive phenomenon and not truly neoplastic.
  • We describe a case of dermatofibroma that presented with a basaloid proliferation identical in appearance to a basal cell carcinoma on the overlying epidermis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Signet-ring cell dermatofibroma.
  • Dermatofibroma or cutaneous fibrous histiocytoma is a common benign skin lesion with multiple, distinct histologic variants, including cellular, aneurismal, epithelioid, atypical, lipidized "ankle-type," palisading, and cholesterotic.
  • Although dermatofibromas are considered benign neoplasms, certain variants including cellular and aneurismal ones have shown to have a notable tendency to locally recur after excision.
  • The finding of signet-ring cells in a skin neoplasm always raises the suspicion of metastatic adenocarcinoma, although a number of reports have shown their occurrence in primitive cutaneous neoplasms as well.
  • Signet-ring cell formation, however, has never been described in dermatofibroma.
  • We present, for the first time, a new, distinctive variant of dermatofibroma, so-called signet-ring cell dermatofibroma, in a 16-year-old man with a slowly growing skin tumor on the lateral side of his right leg.
  • Histochemical and immunohistochemical stainings confirmed the diagnosis of dermatofibroma.

  • [Title] Plaque-like dermatofibroma: A distinct and rare benign neoplasm?
  • Dermoscopic examination showed diffuse homogenous pigmentation in the absence of other diagnostic criteria for dermatofibroma.
  • Based on the histological findings, a diagnosis of dermatofibroma was made for each of these cases.
  • Fewer than 20 adult cases of large dermatofibroma of this scale, designated giant dermatofibroma, have been reported to date; and only two have shown a plaque-like appearance, the remainder being pedunculated.
  • The authors propose plaque-like dermatofibroma as a variety of large dermatofibroma distinct to pedunculated giant dermatofibroma.

  • [Title] Spectrum of follicular and sebaceous differentiation induced by dermatofibroma.
  • BACKGROUND: The term "induction" has been used to designate epidermal changes above dermatofibroma.
  • Whereas follicular differentiation has been reported frequently, sebaceous hyperplasia above dermatofibroma is considered a rarity.
  • OBJECTIVE: To characterize all changes overlying dermatofibroma and to determine their frequency.
  • METHODS: Sections cut from 210 consecutive examples of dermatofibroma were stained with hematoxylin and eosin and analyzed for the presence or absence of induction, for the type of change induced, and for features associated with these findings.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Dermoscopic findings of haemosiderotic and aneurysmal dermatofibroma: report of six patients.
  • BACKGROUND: The clinical diagnosis of dermatofibroma is commonly easy.
  • However, the differentiation of dermatofibroma from other cutaneous tumours is difficult in some instances, primarily in atypical cases and rare variants.
  • Haemosiderotic dermatofibroma is a variant composed of numerous small vessels, extravasated erythrocytes and intra- and extracellular haemosiderin deposits.
  • Aneurysmal dermatofibroma is a variant composed of large, blood-filled spaces without endothelial lining.
  • Some authors consider that haemosiderotic dermatofibroma is an early stage in the development of aneurysmal dermatofibroma.
  • The clinical differential diagnosis of haemosiderotic or aneurysmal dermatofibroma must include melanoma and other melanocytic tumours, vascular neoplasms, adnexal tumours and nonspecific cysts.
  • Dermoscopy improves the diagnostic accuracy in pigmented and nonpigmented skin lesions.
  • CONCLUSIONS: This dermoscopic pattern yielded the diagnosis of haemosiderotic or aneurysmal dermatofibroma in most cases.
  • However, this multicomponent pattern may present in some melanomas and although it is useful in determining a clinical diagnosis of aneurysmal dermatofibroma, it may not be specific to this entity.

  • In addition, the immunoperoxidase confirmation of AFX has been less than straightforward and has historically been approached as a diagnosis of exclusion because of the lack of sensitivity and specificity of available "positive" reagents.
  • Group 2 consisted of a direct comparison of 11 AFX, 11 dermatofibroma (DF), and 7 epithelioid dermatofibroma (EDF) using the CD10 reagent on cases identified by database search.
  • We believe that CD10 and PC1 immunostaining can be used as a useful adjunct to supplement the diagnosis of AFX, within the context of an immunoperoxidase panel.
  • Not surprisingly, CD10 expression is also common in DF, a benign analog of AFX, with the exception of its epithelioid variant.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] High proliferative activity excludes dermatofibroma: report of the utility of MIB-1 in the differential diagnosis of selected fibrohistiocytic tumors.
  • CONTEXT: Dermatofibroma is a benign fibrohistiocytic tumor composed of a mixture of fibroblastic and histiocytic cells.
  • The diagnosis of this tumor is generally uncomplicated; however, rare variants may be difficult to distinguish from malignant fibrohistiocytic tumors.
  • Deep penetrating dermatofibroma may be difficult to distinguish from dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, and pseudosarcomatous dermatofibroma and dermatofibroma with monster giant cells share morphologic similarities with malignant fibrous histiocytoma and atypical fibroxanthoma.
  • OBJECTIVE: To find an immunohistochemical marker or markers that differentiate between fibrohistiocytic lesions of skin.
  • RESULTS: A high proliferative index detected by MIB-1 staining excluded the possibility of dermatofibroma and was diagnostically useful in separating this entity from dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, malignant fibrous histiocytoma, and atypical fibroxanthoma.
  • A low proliferative index, however, could not differentiate dermatofibroma from dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans.
  • Factor XIIIa reactivity was not helpful for the diagnosis of dermatofibroma, whereas CD34 reactivity was statistically significant in the diagnosis of dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans.
  • CONCLUSION: Evaluation of the proliferative index may further assist in distinguishing dermatofibroma from dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, atypical fibroxanthoma, and malignant fibrous histiocytoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Benign fibrous histiocytoma is one of the most frequent benign neoplasms mainly composed of a mixture of fibroblastic and histiocytic cells, especially found in the skin (dermatofibroma), particularly in the limbs.
  • The diagnosis of cutaneous benign fibrous histiocytoma is generally easy; however, rare variants may be difficult to identify, and the diagnosis only confirmed after exhaustive histopathological examination.
  • Thus, deep subcutaneous dermatofibroma may be difficult to distinguish from dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans and dermatofibroma with monster giant cells from malignant fibrous histiocytoma and atypical fibroxanthoma.
  • Recognition of dermatofibroma is important, allowing sequential excision and optimal results.
  • Definitive diagnosis, although especially difficult in our case, is established by characteristic histological and immunohistochemical criteria.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The morphological features of epithelioid sarcoma may closely mimic those of epithelial neoplasms, such as squamous cell carcinoma, mesenchymal tumors, such as benign fibrous histiocytoma, and nonneoplastic lesions, such as granuloma annulare.
  • Immunohistochemistry, particularly for epithelial markers and CD34, thus plays a valuable role in the differential diagnosis of epithelioid sarcoma.
  • We examined the utility of immunohistochemistry for INI1 and GLUT-1 in the diagnosis of epithelioid sarcoma and various cutaneous mimics.
  • Twenty-four cases of epithelioid sarcoma, 13 cases of granuloma annulare, 10 cases of rheumatoid nodule, 19 cases of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma, 7 cases of atypical fibroxanthoma, 9 cases of benign fibrous histiocytoma (dermatofibroma), and 3 cases of nodular fasciitis were immunostained for GLUT-1 and INI1 using commercially available antibodies, heat-induced epitope retrieval, and the Dako Envision detection system.
  • GLUT-1 was positive in 40%-50% of epithelioid sarcomas, all cases of granuloma annulare and rheumatoid nodules, 67% of benign fibrous histiocytomas, and in all squamous cell carcinomas.
  • We conclude that immunohistochemistry for INI1 expression should be included as part of the routine immunohistochemical panel for the diagnosis of epithelioid sarcoma, along with established markers such as wide-spectrum cytokeratins, cytokeratin 5/6, p63, and CD34.
  • In this clinical context, loss of INI1 expression seems to be an entirely specific marker of epithelioid sarcoma and this finding may be of great value in distinguishing CD34-negative epithelioid sarcoma from squamous cell carcinoma and in the distinction of rare cytokeratin-negative epithelioid sarcomas from necrobiotic processes, nodular fasciitis, and benign fibrous histiocytomas.
  • In contrast, there does not seem to be a role for GLUT-1 immunohistochemistry in this differential diagnosis.

  • However, the diagnoses of dermatofibroma, other spindle cell neoplasm, infectious granulomatous process, and other xanthohistiocytic proliferations were also considered due to the presence of storiform spindle cells and foamy cells in the first case.
  • In the absence of massive lymphadenopathy characteristic of Rosai-Dorfman disease, the diagnosis of purely cutaneous Rosai-Dorfman disease may be complicated by the rarity, non-specific clinical appearance of skin lesions, and broad histopathological differential diagnosis of this disorder.

  • Desmoplastic cutaneous squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs) are rare neoplasms with an increased risk of local recurrence and metastasis usually affecting sun-exposed skin of the elderly.
  • To expand this clinicopathologic spectrum, we report 6 cases of an unusual variant of desmoplastic SCC in which the "desmoplastic" areas are predominantly composed of cytologically bland malignant spindle cells mimicking a reactive/benign scarring process.
  • All tumors affected sun-damaged skin of the head and commonly infiltrated into the subcutaneous fat and deeper structures.
  • Accurate recognition of this entity is essential because of potential misdiagnosis as a benign process including scar and dermatofibroma.
  • Careful search for atypical features and squamous differentiation, immunohistochemical studies, and, in some cases, deeper sections are required to establish the diagnosis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Multinucleate cell angiohistiocytoma (MCAH) is a putative reactive skin lesion, which has been reported mostly in adult female patients, and hormones have been recently suggested as a factor influencing its development.
  • To test this hypothesis, monoclonal anti-estrogen receptor (ER) a, anti-progesterone receptor (PR), anti-Factor XIIIa, and polyclonal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) antibodies were applied by immunohistochemistry on a series of 21 MCAHs and, compared to 10 cases of dermatofibroma (DF) and 5 cases of chronic dermatitis presenting multinucleate cells.
  • On normal skin surrounding the lesions and in cases of DF and chronic dermatitis, ERa was expressed in few undifferentiated and differentiated sebocytes, in few cells of anagen follicles and perifollicular mesenchymal cells, and in scattered dermal fibrocytes.
  • PR expression was restricted to sparse spindle cells and few sebocytes, whereas Factor XIIIa stained spindle cells in the dermis of normal and inflamed skin and in both MCAH and DF, and VEGF staining resulted completely negative.
  • ERα, PR, and VEGF have been reported as poorly expressed in normal skin.

  • For the most part, the histologic diagnosis of metastatic melanoma poses little diagnostic difficulty; however, some metastases may adopt unusual or unfamiliar appearances mimicking other benign and malignant conditions.
  • One hundred ten cases showed the classic morphologic appearance of melanoma (well-circumscribed epithelioid dermal/subcutaneous nodule), 82 cases showed unusual histologic appearances that mimicked other benign and malignant neoplasms.
  • The histologic diagnosis of cutaneous metastatic melanoma can pose difficulties for diagnosis, especially in the face of an unknown primary neoplasm.
  • Unusual features observed in this series included examples of cutaneous metastatic melanoma that closely simulated metastatic carcinoma, dermatofibroma, leiomyosarcoma, angiosarcoma, nevoid melanoma, halo nevus, blue nevi, and atypical fibroxanthoma.
  • Immunohistochemical stains plus careful clinical history helped to establish the correct diagnosis.
  • Our series illustrates that the differential diagnosis of cutaneous metastatic melanoma can be broad and difficult.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • We report a case of a 9-month-old child, without a known diagnosis of neurofibromatosis 1, who presented with hepatosplenomegaly, anemia, thrombocytopenia, and multiple cutaneous nodules, which were confirmed to be juvenile xanthogranulomas upon biopsy.
  • Although cutaneous juvenile xanthogranulomas are benign lesions, in several reported cases they have been shown to herald leukemia.
  • Juvenile xanthogranulomas have a number of morphologic variants and clinical presentations that can be confused with the cutaneous lesions of Langerhans cell histiocytosis and dermatofibroma.
  • Recognition of the broad clinicopathologic spectrum of juvenile xanthogranulomas is critical for proper diagnosis.
