  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Solitary fibrous tumour of the pleura: A case report.
  • Solitary fibrous tumours of the pleura are rare pleural neoplasms that are distinct from mesothelioma.
  • Most of them are benign, although some behave aggressively; morphological and pathological features are important in distinguishing them from mesothelioma and in predicting clinical behaviour.
  • Solitary fibrous tumours often grow to a large size before causing symptoms, and are characteristically associated with hypertrophic pulmonary osteoarthropathy in up to 20% of cases.
  • In cases of benign lesions, complete resection is usually curative.
  • A case involving a 62-year-old woman who underwent surgical resection of a solitary fibrous tumour of the pleura measuring 25 cm in size is described.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Establishment of a human malignant fibrous mesothelioma cell line and the biological characteristics compared with malignant epithelial mesothelioma cell line.
  • Two human malignant mesothelioma cell lines, which we designated "epithelial mesothelioma cells" and "fibrous mesothelioma cells", were established from the pleural fluid containing malignant mesothelial cells of a 72-year-old Japanese man.
  • The epithelial mesothelioma cells were epithelial in shape and transplantable into the subcutis of nude mice, while the cells of the fibrous mesothelioma line were fibroblast-like and transplantable into the submucosa of Hamster's cheek pouches but not into the subcutis of nude mice.
  • The mesotheliomas are classified into three types: epithelial mesothelioma, fibrous mesothelioma and mixed type.
  • The gene copy number losses observed on 9p21.3, 9p21.2, 9p21.1, among others may be a major mechanism of malignant mesothelioma carcinogenesis.
  • We considered and supported the combination theory for the histogenesis of malignant mesothelioma.

  • OBJECTIVE: To report the characteristics of solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura (SFTP), and to analyze the factors associated with the misdiagnosis of this disease.
  • RESULTS: The preoperative diagnosis was pleural mesothelioma in 7 cases, neurogenic tumor in 6, lung cancer in 4, SFTP in 2, hilar lymph node tuberculosis in 1 and inflammatory granuloma in 1 case.
  • All the cases underwent radical resection, and postoperative pathology and immunohistochemical study were performed, and the diagnosis of benign solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura was confirmed.
  • CONCLUSION: The recognition of the clinical characteristics of pleural solitary fibrous tumor is essential for improving the diagnosis of this uncommon disease.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Recurrence and malignant transformation in solitary fibrous tumour of the pleura.
  • Solitary fibrous tumours of the pleura are mesenchymal neoplasms and recurrence with malignant progression after complete resection rarely occurs.
  • In the case of a 76-year-old patient we found multifocal recurrence with malignant transformation within six months following primary excision.
  • Even though the vast majority of these tumours are benign, complete resection as well as clinical and radiological follow-up are highly recommended because of the potentially adverse biological behaviour and the lack of radical treatment options other than surgery.

  • [Title] [The clinicopathological features and surgical treatment of solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura].
  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the clinicopathological features and surgical treatment of solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura (SFTP).
  • Five cases had pleural effusion.
  • Eight cases received tumor resection by wedge resection of the lung, and the other 3 patients by middle and lower lobe resection, lower lobe resection and chest wall tumor resection, respectively.
  • Nine tumors were located in the visceral pleura, 1 tumor below the visceral pleura, and 1 tumor in parietal pleura.
  • There were abundant gross collagenous fibers and thick-walled blood vessels around tumor cells.
  • The tumor cells were stained with vimentin (100%, 11/11), CD(34) (100%, 11/11), CD(99) (63.6%, 7/11), and bcl-2 (63.6%, 7/11), but no expression of CD(31).
  • Of the 11 cases, 9 were histologically diagnosed as benign SFTP, 1 as cell-abundant type of SFTP, and another as malignant SFTP.
  • CONCLUSIONS: SFTP should be considered when chest X-ray and CT showed single nodule or mass in the pleura.
  • For a tumor with a diameter les than 5 cm, resection by VATS or VATS plus small thoracotomy is a good surgical procedure.

  • [Title] Successful diagnosis of diaphragmatic solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura by preoperative ultrasonography.
  • The diaphragm is an uncommon site for solitary fibrous tumors of the pleura (SFTPs).
  • However, preoperative diagnosis of the tumor is difficult because their morphological features are not well detected on radiological images.
  • Subsequently, this finding was confirmed histopathologically after resection.
  • To our knowledge, this is the first report of a preoperative diagnosis of diaphragmatic SFTP by US.

  • Solitary fibrous tumours of the pleura can arise from either the visceral or the parietal pleura.
  • Female and male subjects are affected equally; solitary tumours of the pleura are found at all ages with a main incidence in the sixth and seventh decades.
  • The current literature describes the origin of both benign and malign tumour cells as being from multipotential submesothelial fibrous cells.
  • The clinical appearance is unspecific and characteristic symptoms are lacking; cough, feeling of pressure in the thoracic chest or dyspnoea are the main leading symptoms and correlate with tumour size.
  • Frequently, a solitary tumour of the pleura is found incidentally.
  • Paraneoplastic syndromes are described and hypertrophic pulmonary osteoarthropathia (HPO) is the most common in cases of a solitary fibrous tumour of the pleura.
  • Patients with a benign solitary fibrous tumour of the pleura have a far better survival compared to those with the malignant variant.
  • In two recent reviews, the 5- and 10-year survival rates are described as being 97 and 90 %, respectively, for benign tumours compared with 89 and 88 % for malignant fibromas.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Benign solitary fibrous tumour of the pleura: a clinical review and report of six cases.
  • Primary tumours of the pleura are commonly divided into two major categories: diffuse and localised.
  • Whereas the diffuse variant is known for its association with asbestos and its poor outcome, the localised one is rare and remains a subject of controversy.
  • Electron microscopy and immunohistochemistry have recently demonstrated that these tumours are of mesenchymal rather than mesothelial origin, and therefore the term "localised mesothelioma" was abandoned.
  • Such tumours are now called solitary fibrous tumours of the pleura (SFTP).
  • The Authors describe a series of 6 cases of benign solitary fibrous tumours of the pleura, surgically treated over the period 1982-2000.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Fibrous tumour of the pleura (SFTP): a proteiform disease. Clinical, histological and atypical radiological patterns selected among our cases.
  • First described by Klemperer and Rabin in 1931, solitary fibrous tumour of the pleura (SFTP) is a mesenchymal tumour that tends to involve the pleura, although it has also been described in other thoracic areas (mediastinum, pericardium and pulmonary parenchyma) and in extrathoracic sites (meninges, epiglottis, salivary glands, thyroid, kidneys and breast).
  • SFTP usually presents as a peripheral mass abutting the pleural surface, to which it is attached by a broad base or, more frequently, by a pedicle that allows it to be mobile within the pleural cavity.
  • SFTP, owing to its large size or unusual locations (paraspinal, para-mediastinal, intra-fissural and intraparenchymal), can pose interpretation problems or, indeed, point towards a diagnosis of diseases of a totally different nature.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Medical insurance aspects of peritoneal tumors with particular attention to peritoneal mesotheliomas].
  • Malignant peritoneal mesotheliomas arise mainly in male patients and the median age of initial diagnosis is about 56 years.
  • Epitheloid subtype predominates in peritoneal mesotheliomas.
  • Asbestos exposure is the best-known and most common risk factor associated with the development of both pleural and peritoneal mesotheliomas and, therefore, about 90% of cases can be assessed as asbestos-associated.
  • Patients with peritoneal mesotheliomas have distinctly higher asbestos burden of the lungs than patients with pleural mesotheliomas.
  • The mean latency period between exposure and diagnosis of peritoneal mesothelioma ranges from 35 to 40 years and is comparable to that of pleural mesothelioma.
  • Mesothelioma of the tunica vaginalis testis also belongs to the group of peritoneal mesotheliomas.
  • No significant evidence exists for the classification of well-differentiated papillary mesothelioma, solitary fibrous tumor, adenomatoid tumor, primary peritoneal serous borderline tumor, and benign multicystic mesothelioma as asbestos-associated tumors.
  • Except malignant mesotheliomas, the induction of other abdominal tumors is independent of an exposure to asbestos dust.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] CT signs, patterns and differential diagnosis of solitary fibrous tumors of the pleura.
  • First described by Klemperer and Rabin in 1931, solitary fibrous tumour of the pleura (SFTP) is a mesenchymal tumour that tends to involve the pleura, although it has also been described in other thoracic areas (mediastinum, pericardium and pulmonary parenchyma) and in extrathoracic sites (meninges, epiglottis, salivary glands, thyroid, kidneys and breast).
  • SFTP usually presents as a peripheral mass abutting the pleural surface, to which it is attached by a broad base or, more frequently, by a pedicle that allows it to be mobile within the pleural cavity.
  • SFTP, owing to its large size or unusual locations (paraspinal, paramediastinal, intrafissural), can pose interpretation problems or, indeed, point towards a diagnosis of diseases of a totally different nature.

  • A 77-year-old man on systemic chemotherapy against postoperative bilateral multiple lung metastases of malignant solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura suffered from pruritus and jaundice.
  • Abdominal computed tomography showed a tumor with peripheral enhancement in the pancreatic head, accompanied with the dilatation of intra- and extra-hepatic bile ducts.
  • He was diagnosed as having obstructive jaundice caused by a pancreatic head tumor.
  • The pancreatic head tumor was presumably diagnosed as the metastasis of malignant solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura, because the findings on the pancreatic head tumor on abdominal CT were similar to those on the primary lung lesion of malignant solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura.
  • The pancreatic tumor grew rapidly after the implantation of metallic stent in the inferior part of the common bile duct.
  • The patient died of lymphangitis carcinomatosa of the lungs.
  • Autopsy revealed a tumor that spread from the pancreatic head to the hepatic hilum.
  • Immunohistochemically the pancreatic head tumor cells were negative for staining of alpha-smooth muscle actin (alpha-SMA) or CD117, but positive for vimentin, CD34 and CD99.
  • These findings are consistent with those on malignant solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura.
  • We report the first case of obstructive jaundice caused by a secondary pancreatic tumor from malignant solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] A case of recurrence and rapid growth of pleural solitary fibrous tumor 8 years after initial surgery.
  • A 69-year-old woman underwent resection of a solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) of the left pleura in April 1997 and of locally recurrent SFT in the left thoracic cavity in September 2003.
  • A postoperative follow-up chest CT scan in March 2005 revealed pleural thickening at two sites of the left thoracic cavity.
  • The two resected tumors were benign SFT, and were diagnosed as locally recurrent SFT in the left thoracic cavity.
  • It has been reported that despite its benign histopathology, pleural SFT recurs more than once after surgery, and the interval between recurrences tends to shorten from the second recurrence.
  • In this patient, the tumor recurred twice and showed a rapidly enlarging tendency at the time of the second recurrence, suggesting the need for careful follow-up at short intervals.

  • INTRODUCTION: Solitary fibrous pleural tumor (SFT) is, in most cases, a benign tumor arising from mesenchymal cells.
  • A malignant version of the tumor is rare and its histopathological evaluation is quite difficult.
  • Usually, SFT affects visceral, as well as parietal pleura, most commonly in a form of a pedunculated tumor.
  • Adjuvant therapy is indicated in malignant varieties of the tumor, however, its outcome is uncertain.
  • SUBJECTS AND METHODS: The authors present a group of 11 patients with solitary fibrous pleural tumors, who were operated at the Ist Faculty Hospital Surgical Clinic of the LF UP (Medical Faculty of the Palacky University) in Olomouc from 2006 to 2009.
  • CONCLUSION: Solitary pleural tumors are fairly rare tumors arising from fibroblastic cells, Its biological characteristics is uncertain and, in some cases, is difficult to assess based on immunohistochemical, as well as morphological indicators.
  • The treatment is surgical--removal of the tumor as far as the healthy tissue.
  • Adjuvant therapy is indicated in malignant varieties of the tumor.
  • SFT relaps rate is fairly high, depending on the tumor biological characteristics and its morphological features.

  • He was found to have a giant solitary pleural tumor, which was completely resected, after which his hypoglycemia ameliorated postoperatively.
  • Histologically, the tumor was consistent with the pathological diagnosis of a solitary fibrous tumor derived from the pleura.
  • Immunohistochemical study revealed positive immunostaining for IGF-II in tumor cells.
  • The presence of high molecular weight (HMW) form of IGF-II in the tumor tissue and patient's serum was confirmed by Western blot analysis.
  • Steady-state mRNA levels of IGF-II and prohormone convertases (PC) 4, a potential protease responsible for IGF-II processing, as determined by RT-PCR were about 14-fold greater and 5-fold less in the tumor tissue than those in normal placental tissue, respectively.
  • Therefore, it is suggested that biologically active, unprocessed HMW form of IGF-II generated from the impaired processing of IGF-II precursor by the defective PC4 expression in the tumor was responsible for the non-islet cell tumor hypoglycemia (NICTH) in the present case.

  • [Title] Sarcomatoid neoplasms of the lung and pleura.
  • Sarcomatoid neoplasms of the lung and pleura are rare tumors that present a complex differential diagnosis, making them challenging for surgical pathologists.
  • In the pleura, the main tumors to consider are the sarcomatoid and desmoplastic types of malignant mesothelioma, solitary fibrous tumor, and desmoid tumor.
  • In particular, it can aid to confirm epithelial differentiation in spindle cell carcinomas and the presence of rhabdomyosarcoma in sarcomatoid carcinomas, mesotheliomas, or pleuropulmonary blastomas.
  • For sarcomatoid and desmoplastic mesothelioma, keratin is the most useful stain because it can highlight invasive growth and mesothelial markers are positive in only the minority of cases.
  • Clinical and radiologic correlation is needed to separate some pleomorphic carcinomas with pleural involvement from sarcomatoid malignant mesothelioma, since these poorly differentiated tumors may not express the usual immunohistochemical markers for carcinoma or mesothelioma.

  • Malignant pericardial mesothelioma is an uncommon variety of a primary malignant cardio-pericardial tumor and it is a highly lethal and fortunately rare cardiac neoplasm.
  • The presentation of pericardial mesothelioma is aspecific and pathologically mesothelioma is not the most common among primary tumors of the pericardium.
  • It is characterized by atypical solid growth of mesothelium with formation of atypical cavities surrounded by fibrous stroma.
  • Radical surgery can be used to treat localized mesothelioma.
  • The treatment for advanced primary pericardial mesothelioma is usually palliative because the tumor is resistant to radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
  • In this paper we report two cases of patients with primary mesothelioma of the pericardium without a definite history of asbestos exposure.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Is D2-40 a useful marker for distinguishing malignant mesothelioma from pulmonary adenocarcinoma and benign mesothelial proliferations?
  • Since pulmonary adenocarcinomas, malignant mesotheliomas (MM), and sometimes benign mesothelial proliferations show a great histomorphological resemblance to each other, an immunohistochemical panel is usually necessary for differential diagnosis.
  • The aim of this study is to compare D2-40 immunostaining in MM, pulmonary adenocarcinoma, and benign mesothelial proliferations.
  • In this retrospective study, D2-40 immunostaining was investigated in 37 cases of MM, 36 cases of pulmonary adenocarcinoma, and 31 cases of benign mesothelial proliferation.
  • Predominantly membranous immunoreactivity was observed in 51% of MMs and in 55% of benign mesothelial proliferations.
  • We believe that D2-40 may be helpful in the differential diagnosis of MM from pleural involvement of pulmonary adenocarcinoma.

  • [Title] Cytogenetic, fluorescence in situ hybridization, and immunohistochemistry studies in a malignant pleural solitary fibrous tumor.
  • Pleural solitary fibrous tumor is a normally benign fibroblastic neoplasm; its recurrences and metastasis are associated with clinical and morphological characteristics of variable interpretation and efficacy of surgical treatment.
  • In the present case, cytogenetic and fluorescence in situ hybridization analyses revealed multiple chromosomal aberrations, including a del(9)(q21qter) and a marker chromosome ish der(9)(ABL+).
  • The present data support but do not resolve the possible involvement of a gene on 9q22 in the biological behavior of these tumors, and the ABL rearrangements and deletions of 1p and 10p suggest another possible malignant component.

  • [Title] Solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura: apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) value and ADC map to predict malignant transformation.
  • Solitary fibrous tumors (SFTs) of the pleura are rare soft-tissue tumors that are presumed to be of mesenchymal origin.
  • Most SFTs are histologically benign, but up to 20% of SFTs may be malignant.
  • In addition, malignant transformation may occur within histologically benign SFTs, though it is rare.
  • However, it is difficult to diagnose malignant SFTs of the pleura by means of conventional computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
  • In this article we present the first case of malignant SFT of the pleura in an 81-year-old man in which the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) value and ADC map based on diffusion-weighted MRI were very useful for identifying malignant transformation.

  • Meigs' syndrome is the association of ovarian fibroma, pleural effusion, and ascites.
  • The patient was a 46-year-old woman with right pleural effusion, ascites, ovarian tumor, and CA125 level of 1808 U/mL.
  • Tomography revealed ascites and bilobate pelvic tumor of approximately 25 cm.
  • Three chemotherapy schemes were applied due to the total lack of response in tumor volume; however, CA125 decreased to 90 U/mL.
  • Thus, surgery was performed with resection of 25 cm of the left ovarian tumor, with intact capsule and without implants; the result of histopathologic analysis was fibroma.
  • Although the association between ovarian tumor, pleural effusion, ascites, and marked elevation of CA125 is highly indicative of epithelial ovarian cancer, Meigs' syndrome must be considered in the differential diagnosis.

  • [Title] Ultrastructural and immunohistochemical analysis of fibrous long-spacing collagen fibrils in malignant mesothelioma.
  • Three cases of biphasic mesothelioma and 2 cases of sarcomatoid mesothelioma were investigated using light and electron microscopy.
  • In 2 of the 3 cases of biphasic mesotheliomas, fibrous long-spacing (FLS) collagen fibrils were discovered with a symmetrical cross-striation of 130 nm in periodicity.
  • All 3 cases of biphasic mesotheliomas showed deposits of hyaluronic acid, whereas both cases of sarcomatoid mesotheliomas showed little hyaluronic acid.
  • As a high concentration of hyaluronic acid induces the formation of FLS collagen fibrils in vitro, the authors propose that FLS fibrils from mesothelioma may be special structures that occur as the tropocollagens are assembled into new collagen fibrils in the presence of hyaluronic acid.

  • [Title] Localized malignant mesothelioma.
  • Localized malignant mesotheliomas are uncommon sharply circumscribed tumors of the serosal membranes with the microscopic appearance of diffuse malignant mesothelioma but without any evidence of diffuse spread.
  • Twenty-one tumors were pleural and 2 were peritoneal.
  • Sixteen tumors reproduced microscopic patterns of diffuse epithelial mesotheliomas, 6 had mixed epithelial and sarcomatous patterns, and 1 was purely sarcomatous.
  • After surgical excision of the tumor, 10 of 21 patients with follow-up data were alive without evidence of disease from 18 months to 11 years after diagnosis.
  • Patients who died had developed local recurrences and metastases, but none had diffuse pleural spread.
  • Localized malignant mesotheliomas should be separated from diffuse malignant mesotheliomas because of their localized presentation, quite different biologic behavior, and far better prognosis.

  • AIM: The authors analyzed the results and outcome of surgical treatment of primary pleural tumors in patients treated in the last 11 years.
  • METHODS: 31 operations were performed for primary pleural tumors in 25 patients (17 males, 8 females).
  • The tumors were classified into the following groups: benign local fibrous tumors (benign LFTP; n = 15), recurrent malignant fibrous tumors (recurrent malignant LFTP; n = 2) and malignant mesotheliomas (MPM; n = 12).
  • Complete resections of benign LFTPs were performed, with additional resection of the chest wall and lobectomy in two cases.
  • In four cases, after the biopsy, two pleurectomies and decortications (P/D) and two pleuropneumonectomies (PPN)/extra-pleural pneumonectomies (EPP) were carried out.
  • Pathological examination revealed seven epithelial, two sarcomatous and one biphasic malignant mesotheliomas.

  • Surgery allows establishment of a definitive diagnosis as well as a cure of the disease.
  • The role of radiotherapy or chemotherapy in the management of the disease is unclear because of the rarity of the disease and the successful results of the surgical treatment.
  • Long-term clinical follow-up may be useful for the patients with SFT because of the potential adverse biological behavior of this tumor, which may lead to repeated recurrences and/or malignant transformation.

  • [Title] Solitary fibrous tumors of the pleura: an analysis of 110 patients treated in a single institution.
  • BACKGROUND: Solitary (localized) fibrous tumors of the pleura (SFTP) are rare slow-growing neoplasms that generally have a favorable prognosis.
  • The visceral pleura was the site of origin in 95 tumors, the parietal pleura in 13, the mediastinal pleura in 2 cases.
  • Sixty-three tumors were pedunculated, 35 were sessile, and 12 were inverted fibroma.
  • Tumors were pathologically benign in 95 cases (86.4%), and malignant in 15 (13.6%).
  • The overall disease-free survival rate was 90.8% (95.7% in benign cases and 67.1% in malignant cases; p < 0.05).
  • Eight patients presented with recurrence of disease, 4 cases of which were malignant and 4 were benign.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura is a rare disease that includes both benign and malignant variants.The outcome is mostly benign, with an overall 10-year survival rate of 97.5%.
  • Pathologically benign lesions show a better disease-free survival rate than malignant lesions (95.7% versus 67.1%; p < 0.05).

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] From the archives of the AFIP: benign fibrous tumors and tumorlike lesions of the mesentery: radiologic-pathologic correlation.
  • Mesenteric fibromatosis, sclerosing mesenteritis, inflammatory pseudotumor, and extrapleural solitary fibrous tumor constitute a loosely associated group of benign fibrous tumors and tumorlike lesions of the mesentery.
  • Although rare, and distinctly different in pathogenesis and biologic behavior, these fibrous lesions have pathologic and radiologic features that overlap with one another and with more common neoplastic and nonneoplastic lesions of the mesentery.
  • Mesenteric fibromatosis is a locally aggressive, benign proliferative process that may occur sporadically or in association with familial adenomatous polyposis.
  • It most frequently manifests as a focal mesenteric mass and may simulate lymphoma, metastatic disease, or a soft-tissue sarcoma.
  • Sclerosing mesenteritis is a rare idiopathic disorder that most commonly produces a stellate mass within the mesentery and should be differentiated from metastatic disease, specifically metastatic carcinoid, because it frequently responds to conservative or medical management.
  • Inflammatory pseudotumor (inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor) is a benign, chronic inflammatory disorder of unknown cause that manifests as a solid mesenteric mass, indistinguishable from malignancy.
  • Extrapleural solitary fibrous tumor is a tumor of submesothelial origin that is identical to the solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura.
  • When located in the mesentery or peritoneal cavity, extrapleural solitary fibrous tumor has an imaging pattern that must be differentiated from metastatic disease, soft-tissue sarcomas, and other benign and malignant neoplasms of the mesentery and peritoneum.
  • Knowledge of this group of benign fibrous tumors and tumorlike lesions of the mesentery is important in the preoperative evaluation of a mesenteric mass.

  • [Title] Solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura.
  • BACKGROUND: The solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura (SFTP) is a rare primary tumor arising from mesenchymal cells in the areolar tissue subjacent to the mesothelial-lined pleura.
  • The tumor appears to be unrelated to malignant pleural mesothelioma, the most common primary tumor of the pleura.
  • METHODS: In just over half of these cases, the neoplasm presents as an asymptomatic mass, is often quite large, and is benign in 78% to 88% of patients.
  • The initial evaluation and diagnosis, tumor classification, surgical treatment, results of therapy, and long-term prognosis are reviewed, based on a selective review of the literature from MEDLINE beginning 1980.
  • RESULTS: Complete en bloc surgical resection is the preferred treatment of benign and malignant varieties of the tumor.
  • The pedunculated tumors attached to the visceral pleura can be effectively treated with a wedge resection of lung.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Benign SFTP has a high cure rate and an 8% local recurrence rate that is usually amenable to curative re-excision.
  • The majority of patients with recurrent disease die of the tumor within 2 years.

  • [Title] Malignant solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura: computed tomography-pathological correlation and comparison with computed tomography of benign solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura.
  • PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to determine the computed tomography (CT)-pathological correlation of malignant solitary fibrous tumors of the pleura (MSFP) and to compare these findings with CT findings of benign solitary fibrous tumors of the pleura (BSFTP).
  • Pleural metastasis (57.1%) and lung metastasis (14.3%) were associated.
  • MSFPs showed a higher incidence of intratumoral low-attenuation areas (P = 0.034) and pleural metastasis (P = 0.009); and on CT, MSFPs tended to be larger than BSFTPs (P = 0.076).
  • CONCLUSION: MSFPs showed a >10 cm pleural mass with low-attenuation regions on CT, which corresponded to hemorrhage, necrosis, cystic, or myxoid degeneration.
  • MSFPs had a higher incidence of intratumoral low-attenuation areas and pleural metastasis, and on CT they tended to be larger than BSFTPs.

  • [Title] Dedifferentiated liposarcoma of the pleura mimicking a malignant solitary fibrous tumor and associated with dedifferentiated liposarcoma of the mediastinum: usefulness of cytogenetic and molecular genetic analyses.
  • Dedifferentiated liposarcoma of the pleura is an extremely rare malignancy mimicking a variety of tumors, such as other sarcomas, mesothelioma, and malignant solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura.
  • Liposarcoma of the pleura can be combined with mediastinal involvement, and in most cases it may be impossible to be certain where the primary tumor originated.
  • In this report, we describe a very rare occurence of a dedifferentiated liposarcoma of the pleura in a 76-year-old woman associated with a distinct second dedifferentiated liposarcoma of the mediastinum.
  • Histologically, the pleural tumor demonstrated spindle cells arranged in a fascicular pattern, whereas the mediastinal tumor was mostly adipocytic with small areas of spindle cells.
  • Vimentin and protein S100 were focally expressed by the tumor cells.
  • The differential diagnosis of the pleural mass included malignant solitary fibrous tumor.
  • Cytogenetic analysis showed supernumerary ring chromosomes in the pleural tumor, as well as strong amplification of MDM2 and CDK4 genes in both tumors.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] D2-40-positive solitary fibrous tumors of the pleura: diagnostic pitfall of biopsy specimen.
  • Solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura (SFTP) is an uncommon spindle-cell neoplasm and is sometimes confused with other spindle-cell tumors, such as sarcomatoid mesotheliomas.
  • D2-40 is a new monoclonal antibody recognizing podoplanin and several studies have confirmed the reliability of D2-40 in the diagnosis of pleural mesothelioma.
  • Percutaneous needle biopsy indicated a spindle-cell tumor showing positive immunoreactivity for CD34, supporting the diagnosis of SFTP.
  • However, the tumor was also immunoreactive to D2-40 and thus malignant mesothelioma could not be ruled out.
  • The tumor was surgically resected to make a definitive pathological diagnosis.
  • The tumor had a patternless architecture and immunohistochemistry was positive for CD34 and D2-40 but was negative for calretinin and cytokeratin 5/6.
  • Care is required in diagnosing biopsy specimens of D2-40-positive pleural spindle-cell tumors, especially in making the differential diagnosis between SFTP and malignant mesothelioma.

  • [Title] A giant solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura: diagnostic implications in an unusual case with literature review.
  • A solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura (SFTP) is an uncommon tumor, in contrast to a relatively common mesothelioma in pleura.
  • We report herein a case of a giant SFTP in a 53-year-old man who presented with cough since five years along with chest pain on the left side and progressive dyspnea since two months.
  • Radiological findings revealed a large pleural mass measuring 25 cm in its largest dimension, filling the pleural cavity with effusion.
  • Biopsy showed a spindle cell tumor with areas of dense sclerosis.
  • Subsequent excision unraveled a large multinodular, grey-white tumor, histologically, composed of spindle cells in a 'patternless' arrangement in dense collagenous stroma with areas of hyalinization.
  • On immunohistochemistry, tumor cells showed diffuse positivity with vimentin, CD34 and BCL2 along with cytoplasmic positivity for MIC2 (CD99), whereas cytokeratin, EMA, calretinin and HBME-1 were negative.
  • Diagnosis of an SFTP was substantiated over a close differential of a desmoplastic mesothelioma.

  • INTRODUCTION: Solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura (SFTP) is a rare neoplasm that usually originates from the visceral pleura, but it can occur in a wide range of tissues.
  • Approximately 12% of pleural cases are malignant tumors and surgical excision usually become curative.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: We did a retrospective review of the patients who had primary pleural tumors from January 1995 to August 2005.
  • RESULTS: Among a total of 94 primary pleural tumors, 17 patients were enrolled in this study, 8 men and 9 women, with a mean age of 63 years.
  • Thirteen cases (76%) were benign and four cases (23%) were malignant.
  • CONCLUSIONS: SFTP shows a benign biologic outcome in most of the cases.
  • There are some histological characteristics that led to distinguish between benign and malign neoplasm.

  • Malignant solitary fibrous tumor (MSFT) of the pleura is a rare neoplasm, with unpredictable biologic behavior and a low sensitivity to chemotherapy.
  • To the authors' knowledge, no other effective medical treatment is available for this disease.
  • We report the first evidence of the activity of imatinib in a symptomatic patient with a chemo- and radio-resistant advanced MSFT, who obtained a 21-months lasting major clinical benefit with a consistent reduction in tumor metabolism.
  • Immunostaining of tumor cells demonstrated the positivity for PDGFR-alpha and PDGFR-beta and the absence of c-KIT over-expression, in the absence of c-KIT and PDGRFR mutations; all the cells strongly and diffusely expressed the ligand PDGF A in the cytoplasm.
  • This profile suggests that the observed tumor response was mediated through the inhibition of the tyrosine kinase activity of PDGFR.
