  • [Title] Fibrous histiocytomas: histopathologic review of 95 cases.
  • Fibrous histiocytoma (FH) is a heterogeneous tumor composed of fibroblasts, histiocytes, and blood vessels.
  • We conducted a retrospective histopathologic analysis of 95 biopsies, performed over the last 3.5 years, of fibrous histiocytomas to analyze the location, delimitation, epithelial changes, induction of folliculo-sebaceous structures, cellularity, vascularity, collagen pattern, and types of composite cells of the FH.
  • In the majority of the biopsies, we confirmed the classical histopathologic features of fibrous histiocytomas.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Sclerosing hemangioma of the lung.
  • We present a brief review of sclerosing hemangioma, an uncommon but histologically distinctive neoplasm of the lung.
  • Based on immunohistochemical and molecular findings, sclerosing hemangioma is thought to be derived from incompletely differentiated respiratory epithelium.
  • Sclerosing hemangiomas typically present as asymptomatic, peripheral, solitary, well-circumscribed lesions in women with a mean age at diagnosis in the fifth decade.
  • Histologically, sclerosing hemangioma is characterized by a distinct constellation of findings including 2 epithelial cell types, surface cells and round cells, which form 4 architectural patterns, papillary, sclerotic, solid, and hemorrhagic.
  • Sclerosing hemangioma of the lung is generally considered to be a benign lesion, and surgical excision is curative without the need for additional treatment.

8. Lang KJ, Lidder S, Hofer M, Graham C, Taylor A: Rapidly evolving giant dermatofibroma. Case Rep Med; 2010;2010:620910

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Rapidly evolving giant dermatofibroma.
  • Dermatofibroma, also known as "fibrous histiocytoma", is a benign dermal or subcutaneous poorly circumscribed proliferation of spindle-shaped fibroblasts and macrophages in the dermis.
  • Giant dermatofibromas of greater than 5 cm in diameter are rare, with only 22 cases reported in the literature.
  • Histological examination confirmed this to be a giant dermatofibroma.
  • Though this specimen cannot is not confirmed as such, the cellular subtype is sometimes present as a larger lesion with anecdotal reports of local recurrence and distant metastases.
  • The clinical and radiological features which were somewhat suspicious of malignancy are considered in the context of the definitive pathological diagnosis of a benign lesion.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Respiratory arrest caused by endobronchial sclerosing hemangioma of the left main bronchus.
  • Sclerosing hemangioma is a rare pulmonary tumor that usually grows as a peripheral intraparenchymal lesion in the lungs.
  • Although some case series have described this rare tumor, endobronchial growth of sclerosing hemangioma is extremely rare, with only 3 reported cases in the literature to date.

  • Case 1: A 38-year-old man was referred to our hospital because of a chest nodular shadow found on a medical check-up.
  • However, the postoperative histopathological diagnosis was pulmonary sclerosing hemangioma with lymph node metastasis.
  • Case 2: An 81-year-old woman was referred to our hospital because of a chest nodular shadow found on a medical check-up.
  • These cases suggest that it may be difficult to diagnose peripheral lung carcinoid or pulmonary sclerosing hemangioma by intraoperative frozen section examination because of their pathological diversity.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The variables of the multivariate analysis were gender, subtype and grade, tumor size and localization (limb vs. other), absence or presence of local recurrence and treatment (control arm vs. adjuvant chemotherapy).
  • RESULTS: Patients' characteristics were globally similar with two exceptions, histological subtype (p = 0.0043) and tumor size (p < .0001).
  • The commonest sarcoma subtype in the AYA population was synovial sarcoma (29 %), whereas leiomyosarcoma (18 %), malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH, 16 %) and liposarcoma (15 %) were more frequent in patients ≥ 30 years.
  • For OS, independent favorable prognostic factors were low grade and small tumor size for both groups; radical resection and MFH or liposarcoma subtype were factors of favorable prognosis for patients ≥ 30 years only.

  • 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.

  • Although the histogenesis of sclerosing hemangioma (SH) of the lung is now thought to be respiratory epithelial in origin, the genetic abnormalities that mediate its development are not known.
  • Because pathophysiology of several syndromes associated with benign tumors may converge on the tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC), serine/threonine kinase 11 (STK11), and mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) pathways, the purpose of the present paper was to investigate their roles in the development of SH.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Subcutaneous atypical fibrous histiocytoma.
  • 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.
  • We report a case of a 38-year-old woman with a painless swelling on the abdominal wall, which was totally excised and histopathologically diagnosed as subcutaneous atypical fibrous histiocytoma.
  • The lesion was deeply located within the subcutaneous tissue and consisted of interlacing fascicles of predominant histiocyte-like spindle cells intermingled with pleomorphic giant cells with bizarre large nuclei (bilobed and multilobed) and prominent eosinophilic nucleoli.
  • Recognition of dermatofibroma is important, allowing sequential excision and optimal results.
  • To the best of our knowledge, we report the first case of subcutaneous fibrous histiocytoma with monster cells.

  • Cutaneous fibrous histiocytomas are usually regarded as superficial lesions and commonly known as dermatofibromas; however, unusual cases histologically showing fibrohistiocytic proliferation extending into the deeper dermis or subcutaneous tissues are occasionally experienced.
  • Some authors propose this type as benign fibrous histiocytoma of the skin, distinct from dermatofibroma.
  • The nodule on the forehead did not present a typical clinical appearance of dermatofibroma, and histopathological examination showed fibrohistiocytic proliferation with a storiform pattern extending into the deep dermis and subcutaneous tissues.
  • By contrast, histology of the nodule on the abdomen showed fibrohistiocytic proliferation confined to the dermis and compatible with dermatofibroma.
  • Although multiple dermatofibromas are occasionally seen in patients with SLE, benign fibrous histiocytoma of the skin showing deeper invasion than dermatofibroma is rarely associated with SLE.

  • [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.
  • METHODS: Dermoscopic examination (using the DermLite Foto; 3Gen, LLC, Dana Point, CA, U.S.A.) of six patients with haemosiderotic or aneurysmal dermatofibromas was performed to evaluate specific dermoscopic criteria.
  • 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.

  • [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.
  • The phenomenon described in this case enlarges the histologic spectrum of cutaneous fibrous histiocytoma and may cause substantial differential diagnostic problems.

  • [Title] Report of an angiosarcoma mimic: cutaneous aneurysmal fibrous histiocytoma.
  • Aneurysmal fibrous histiocytoma is an unusual variant of the spectrum of fibrous histiocytomas with the peculiar morphologic appearance of a benign aneurysmal vasoformative process that ultimately culminates in multiple microhemorrhages within the tumor.
  • It looks strikingly different from the usual cutaneous lesions encountered in clinical dermatology practice.
  • A single report of a cutaneous aneurysmal fibrous histiocytoma in the skin of the back of a 60-year-old male is described with emphasis on the immunostaining pattern and review of the literature.
  • There is a significant potential for confusion of this lesion with other cutaneous lesions, clinically as well as pathologically.
  • In our case, the patient presented with a lesion that clinically resembled a hemangioma, was pathologically interpreted initially to be an angiosarcoma, and finally, the revised pathology was interpreted as an aneurysmal variant of a fibrous histiocytoma.
  • Caution is warranted to avoid misinterpretation of cutaneous fibrohistiocytic tumors.

  • 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.
  • RESULTS: The epidermis above dermatofibromas was acanthotic, simulating seborrheic keratosis in 62.9% of the cases, and areas of clear and pale cells similar to those of clear cell acanthoma were seen in 18.6%.
  • In 16.7% of the dermatofibromas, induction of sebaceous lobules was encountered, whereas sebaceous differentiation in the form of mantles was seen in 25.7% of the cases.

  • [Transliterated title] Pleomorphes malignes fibröses Histiozytom der Periorbitalregion.
  • BACKGROUND: Pleomorphic malignant fibrous histiocytomas (undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcomas) belong to the soft tissue tumours and are more likely in elder patients.
  • About 3 % percent of all pleomorphic malignant fibrous histiocytomas arise in the head and neck region.
  • 30 % of these histiocytomas develop in the paranasal sinuses.
  • In spite of their pleomorphic pattern the treatment is solely surgical excision.
  • A biopsy was classified as a malignant fibrous tumour with the subclassification of an atypical fibroxanthoma.
  • The final histopathological classification after total excision of the tumour showed perineural growth and angioinvasion.
  • Therefore the tumour classification was changed to pleomorphic malignant fibrous histiocytoma (undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma).
  • The defect was closed with a full skin graft on the basis of a galea periosteal flap.
  • This underlines that even with state of the art procedures the classification of neoplasias can be very difficult.
  • In the process of finding the right diagnosis sometimes a change from benign to malignant occurs and alters the treatment regime.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Subcutaneous benign fibrous histiocytoma of the cheek. Case report and review of the literature.
  • Fibrous histiocytoma is a benign tumour composed of a mixture of fibroblastic and histiocytic cells.
  • Based on the location of this tumour, fibrous histiocytoma are usually divided into cutaneous types and those involving deep tissues.
  • These lesions most often arise on the skin, but may rarely occur in soft deep tissues.
  • The diagnosis of fibrous histiocytoma may be clinically difficult when the lesion is located in the deep tissues, and is frequently confirmed after local excision.
  • The most important diagnostic distinction is the separation of this tumour from aggressive forms of fibrohistiocytic neoplasms, including dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans and malignant fibrous histiocytoma.
  • The lesion had been totally excised under local anaesthesia, and histopathology revealed a benign fibrous histiocytoma.
  • The diagnosis, location, treatment and prognosis of fibrous histiocytoma are also discussed.

  • [Title] Atypical dermatofibroma with predominant epithelioid/deciduoid-like cell component. Histogenetic considerations in the wide spectrum of fibrohistiocytic dermal tumours.
  • Atypical and epithelioid cell variants of dermatofibroma may represent a potential diagnostic pitfall.
  • Only rarely atypical dermatofibroma may show focal epithelioid cell features.
  • We herein report a rare case of dermatofibroma composed of a predominant (> 90%) epithelioid/deciduoid-like cell component, in which rare multinucleated bizarre cells and atypical mitoses were additional findings.
  • Tumour was classified as "atypical dermatofibroma with predominant epithelioid/deciduoid-like cell component".
  • The coexistence of at least two different variants, i.e. epithelioid and atypical variants, in the same dermatofibroma suggests that dermal fibrohistiocytic tumours belong to a continuous morphological spectrum.
  • Accordingly, the morphological variants of dermatofibroma should be regarded as variations on a common basic theme.

  • BACKGROUND: Dermatofibroma represents one of the commonest benign soft tissue tumours, and its diagnosis is usually straightforward if classical clinicopathologic features are evident.
  • We report a peculiar case of an aggressive cellular dermatofibroma in a child that simulated a malignant tumour.
  • It was nodular, erythematous, infiltrating the underlying tissue with an anterior spread leading to an amputation of the auricular lobule and a retraction of the tragus.
  • The lesion had the full microscopic characteristics of a cellular dermatofibroma.
  • CONCLUSION: Dermatofibroma is one of the major differential diagnosis of nodular cutaneous tumours in children that simulate malignancy.

  • 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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] D2-40, a novel immunohistochemical marker in differentiating dermatofibroma from dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans.
  • The distinction between dermatofibroma, particularly cellular variant, and dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans in excisional biopsies is usually straightforward.
  • Although factor XIIIa and CD34 immunostains are useful in differentiating dermatofibroma and dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans in most instances, focal CD34 positivity may be seen in cellular fibrous histiocytoma.
  • In this study, we investigated the utility of D2-40 in separating dermatofibroma from dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans and compared the results with other commonly used immunostains.
  • Fifty-six cases of dermatofibroma (including six cellular variant) and 29 cases of dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans were retrieved from the archives of Department of Anatomic Pathology at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Center in University of Toronto.
  • All 56 (100%) cases of dermatofibroma demonstrated strong and diffuse immunoreactivity to D2-40 in the spindle cells and stroma.
  • Nearly all dermatofibromas were negative for CD34 except one case revealing focal positivity.
  • None of dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans cases were labeled by D2-40, although four cases showed weak and patchy background staining in contrary to diffuse, strong, and crisp staining seen in dermatofibromas.
  • Our results indicate that D2-40 seems to be a sensitive immunohistochemical marker for dermatofibromas, including cellular variant.

  • [Title] Phenotypic characterization of human keratinocytes in coculture reveals differential effects of fibroblasts from benign fibrous histiocytoma (dermatofibroma) as compared to cells from its malignant form and to normal fibroblasts.
  • BACKGROUND: Benign and malignant fibrous histiocytoma present with a considerable difference concerning cellular organization in their vicinity.
  • OBJECTIVE: Normally appearing epithelium covers the malignant form in contrast to hyperplastic epidermis for benign tumors.
  • METHODS: Fibroblasts were isolated from benign and malignant fibrous histiocytomas, respectively, and also from normal dermis.
  • Cells prepared from benign fibrous histiocytoma were capable to effect strong expression of keratin 19 and production of a galectin-1-rich extracellular matrix.
  • Fibroblasts isolated from malignant fibrous histiocytoma led to a phenotype very similar to that when keratinocytes were cocultured with normal dermal fibroblasts.
  • CONCLUSION: Fibroblasts prepared from benign fibrous histiocytoma were biologically active on keratinocytes in a particular manner.
  • Our results on fibroblast activity are suggested to be relevant for morphologic differences observed in vivo between normal epidermis and epidermis adjacent to the studied tumor types.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] CD163 expression is present in cutaneous histiocytomas but not in atypical fibroxanthomas.
  • Our aim was to test the ability of CD163 to separate cutaneous histiocytomas from their morphologic mimics.
  • We tested the expression of CD163 in 78 cases, including 19 xanthogranulomas, 16 atypical fibroxanthomas, 6 reticulohistiocytomas, 8 epithelioid cell histiocytomas, 9 cases of Langerhans cell histiocytosis, 10 xanthomas, and 10 intradermal Spitz nevi.
  • CD163 expression was seen in all xanthogranulomas and reticulohistiocytomas, 4 epithelioid cell histiocytomas, 2 cases of Langerhans cell histiocytosis, and 8 xanthomas but was absent in atypical fibroxanthomas and Spitz nevi.
  • CD163 is an excellent marker for confirming histiocytic differentiation and is useful in eliminating morphologic mimics such as Spitz nevi from the differential diagnosis.

  • [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.
  • 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.
  • DESIGN: We evaluated the immunophenotypic characteristics of 83 fibrohistiocytic tumors (36 typical dermatofibromas, 16 cases of dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, 16 malignant fibrous histiocytomas, and 15 atypical fibroxanthomas) using antibodies against MIB-1 (Ki-67), factor XIIIa, CD34 (HPCA-1), HHF35 (muscle-specific actin), 1A4 (smooth muscle actin), cytokeratin (AE1/AE3, CAM 5.2, and 34betaE12), S100 protein, and desmin.
  • 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.

  • [Title] Dermatofibroma: a possible model of local fibrosis with epithelial/mesenchymal cell interaction.
  • Dermatofibromas are benign dermal nodules usually seen on the extremities; however, whether a dermatofibroma is a reactive fibrous hyperplasia or a true neoplasm is still unclear.
  • Fibrous type dermatofibromas might be regarded as the symptom of local fibrotic processes and thus present a possible model of local fibrosis.
  • Interaction between proliferated dermatofibroma fibroblasts and overlying elongated epidermis suggests a relationship between keratinocytes and mesenchymal cells.
  • We herein describe current insights into the pathogenesis of dermatofibromas and explore the possible involvement of immunocytes around fibroblasts and effector cells which play an important role in the development of dermatofibromas.

  • BACKGROUND: We report on a newborn presenting a solitary congenital skin nodule due to Langerhans cell histiocytosis.
  • This benign lesion is rare and has been described in the literature under a variety of names; there is no consensus regarding treatment.
  • Histological examination of a skin biopsy showed a proliferation of histiocytes throughout the dermis with an immunohistochemical profile of Langerhans cells.
  • It appears necessary to differentiate between congenital and other forms of histiocytoma since therapeutic strategies differ.

  • [Title] Malignant fibrous histiocytoma of the face: report of a case.
  • Four months beforehand, a benign fibrous histiocytoma (BFH) had been removed from the same location by excision biopsy with wide tumour-free resection margins.
  • Excision biopsy of the recurrent lesion revealed a malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH).
  • Radical tumour resection was completed by extended parotidectomy and neck dissection; the skin defect was covered by a regional bi-lobed flap.
  • DISCUSSION: Malignant transformation of BFH is extremely rare and if so, extended radical surgery may give a fair chance for a favourable outcome even in patients with advanced age.

  • BACKGROUND: The cell origin of dermatofibroma (DF) has not been clarified satisfactorily.
  • This study was undertaken to assess the distribution of fibroblasts and the relationship between fibroblasts and other constituent cells in DF by 47-kDa heat-shock protein (HSP47), a cell marker for skin fibroblast.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Skin fibroblast is one of the major constituent cells in DF, and DF may be composed chiefly of two types of cell lineages, fibroblasts and bone marrow-derived monocyte/macrophages (dermal dendritic cells and/or histiocytes).

  • [Title] Amyloid light chain deposition associated with dermatofibroma: serendipity or association?
  • Primary cutaneous amyloidosis, also known as nodular amyloidosis, is defined as deposition of amyloid light chain in the skin in the absence of a systemic cause of amyloidosis.
  • In contrast, secondary cutaneous amyloidosis is related to lesions such as squamous cell carcinoma, Bowen disease, basal cell carcinoma, and discoid lupus erythematosus, and has been shown in most cases to be derived from keratin epithelial elements.
  • Herein, we present a unique case of nodular amyloidosis occurring in association with a cellular dermatofibroma.

  • Tuberous sclerosis is an autosomal dominant genetic disorder that is characterized by the early development of hamartomas, malformations, and congenital tumors of the nervous system, skin, kidneys, lungs, and heart.
  • Variable clinical expressivity has been reported and more than one gene can be responsible for the disorder.
  • Benign neoplasias accompanying the syndrome are common but malignant neoplasias are rare, being generally mesenchymal and possibly affecting the jaws.
  • We report here a clinical case of a malignant fibrous histiocytoma (undifferentiated high-grade pleomorphic sarcoma) of the mandible in a patient with tuberous sclerosis.

  • [Title] Deep fibrous histiocytoma with a clonal karyotypic alteration: molecular cytogenetic characterization of a t(16;17)(p13.3;q21.3).
  • Deep fibrous histiocytoma, a rare lesion occuring in deep soft tissues, has recently been formally characterized as a diagnostically distinguishable variant of the benign fibrous histiocytoma spectrum with distinct morphological features.
  • We report a 46,XY,t(16;17)(p13.3;q21.3) karyotype in a deep fibrous histiocytoma.
  • No break-apart signals were observed in the six additional cases studied, indicating either that the translocation is sporadic or that it is rare in deep fibrous histiocytoma.
  • In conclusion, our data show that chromosome aberrations may be found in deep fibrous histiocytoma and that, as with cutaneous lesions, they may have clonal, at present nonrecurrent, chromosome changes.

  • Dermatofibromas are fibrohistiocytic lesions with numerous histologic variants.
  • Ossifying dermatofibroma with osteoclast-like giant cells is an uncommon variant that has only rarely been reported.
  • We report another case of ossifying dermatofibroma with osteoclast-like giant cells and describe the immunohistochemical expression pattern of these rare lesions.
  • Large islands of spindled cells arranged in a storiform pattern were separated by broad fibrous bands.
  • A broad differential diagnosis, including variants of melanoma and osteosarcoma, should be considered when analyzing cutaneous lesions with a fibrohistiocytic component admixed with giant cells and metaplastic bone.

  • The second patient highlights the fact that malignant histiocytoma can occur in the pediatric age group and that the initial surgical treatment of benign fibrous histiocytoma should be aggressive to avoid recurrence and development of malignant changes.
  • We believe that our second patient is the youngest age ever reported in the literature with malignant fibrous histiocytoma.
