1. Sherwani RK, Kumar A: Solitary fibrous tumour of the lower leg: an uncommon site with atypical histopathological features. BMJ Case Rep; 2010;2010

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Solitary fibrous tumour of the lower leg: an uncommon site with atypical histopathological features.
  • On local examination, the overlying skin was normal and the mass was soft to firm in consistency, non-tender and freely mobile with no fixity to underlying structures.
  • MRI revealed a lobulated mass with central areas of necrosis and no involvement of underlying muscles and neurovascular bundles suggesting a benign soft tissue tumour.
  • The tumour was totally excised and submitted for histopathological examination, which, along with immunopositivity for CD34, CD99 and focally for Bcl2, led to a confirmatory diagnosis of solitary fibrous tumour with atypical histopathological features of increased mitosis and necrosis.

  • [Title] Apolipoprotein D in CD34-positive and CD34-negative cutaneous neoplasms: a useful marker in differentiating superficial acral fibromyxoma from dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans.
  • More recent techniques to characterize the genetic profile of soft-tissue tumors include the use of gene arrays.
  • To corroborate these results, we sought to ascertain the utility of Apo D by investigating its sensitivity and specificity in a variety of CD34-positive and CD34-negative cutaneous neoplasms including superficial acral fibromyxoma, sclerotic fibromas, and cellular dermatofibromas.
  • Of the remaining CD34-positive lesions, Apo D expression was noted in 35/36 (97%) cases of dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, 3/5 (60%) giant-cell fibroblastomas, 4/4 (100%) sclerotic fibromas, 8/8 (100%) neurofibromas, and 1/1 (100%) solitary fibrous tumor.
  • Of the CD34-negative lesions, Apo D expression was noted in 2/22 (9%) regular dermatofibroma, 23/45 (51%) cellular dermatofibroma, 10/10 (100%) malignant fibrous histiocytoma, 9/10 (90%) atypical fibroxanthoma, 7/8 (86%) cellular neurothekeoma, 9/9 (100%) malignant melanoma, 8/8 (100%) melanocytic nevi (100%), 0/2 superficial angiomyxoma, 0/15 fibromatosis, 0/1 nodular fasciitis, and 1/2 (50%) desmoplastic fibroblastomas.
  • Although strong positive staining of Apo D in a markedly atypical fibrohistiocytic lesion is suggestive of atypical fibroxanthoma and/or malignant fibrous histiocytoma, further studies with the inclusion of other atypical spindled cell neoplasms are required to conclusively prove the same.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Deep "benign" fibrous histiocytoma: clinicopathologic analysis of 69 cases of a rare tumor indicating occasional metastatic potential.
  • Benign fibrous histiocytoma (FH) is one of the most common mesenchymal neoplasms of the skin.
  • Several histologic variants of cutaneous FH have been described, some of which also have distinct clinical features including a propensity for local recurrence.
  • Deep benign FH is an uncommon and poorly recognized clinical subtype that arises in subcutaneous or deep soft tissue.
  • The most common anatomic location was the extremities (58%); the remainder arose on the head and neck (22%), trunk (11%), and in the deep soft tissue of the retroperitoneum, mediastinum, or pelvis (9%).
  • All lesions arising in nonvisceral soft tissue were subcutaneous.
  • Of the 37 patients for whom clinical follow-up was available (median, 40 mo), 8 (22%) had a local recurrence; in all 8 cases, the tumor had been marginally or incompletely excised.
  • The metastasizing tumors were large (6 and 9 cm) and 1 had tumor necrosis but they were otherwise histologically identical to the nonmetastasizing lesions.
  • In summary, deep FH has many histologic features in common with cutaneous cellular FH; however, it usually has a more diffusely storiform pattern than the latter, is well circumscribed, and may have striking hemangiopericytomalike vessels.

  • [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.
  • Prominent hyaline collagen bundles surrounded by tumor cells were observed, predominantly at the periphery of the lesion.
  • To the best of our knowledge, we report the first case of subcutaneous fibrous histiocytoma with monster cells.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Morphometric analyses of elastic tissue fibers in dermatofibroma: clues to etiopathogenesis?
  • BACKGROUND: The etiopathogenesis of dermatofibroma (DF), a common benign fibrohistiocytic tumor, is debatable.
  • The goal of this study was to ascertain the density of elastic tissue fibers in DF in an effort to investigate whether this provides an insight into its etiopathogenesis.
  • RESULT: The mean density of elastic tissue fibers in cellular DF was 6.81 (1.38-15.89); in paucicellular DF, 2.46 (0.14-5.79) and in scar, 2.95 (0.97-10.69).
  • Overall, significant differences in density of elastic tissue fibers were observed only between cellular DF and the other two groups (vs. paucicellular variant, p = 0.03 and vs. scar, p = 0.05).
  • Morphological changes observed included thickness, clumping, elongation and waviness (cellular DF) and margination of elastic tissue fibers (paucicellular variant).
  • CONCLUSION: While the jury still appears to be out regarding the etiopathogenesis of DF, the reduction in density of elastic tissue fibers in the paucicellular variant compared with its cellular counterpart lends credence to the concept of evolutionary stages of DF.

  • [Transliterated title] Frecuencia de tumores benignos durante el periodo de 2000-2006 en el Hospital General "Dr. Manuel Gea González".
  • BACKGROUND: Benign skin neoplasms are defined as autonomous growing tissue unrelated to normal growing of the skin, that persist even after the originating stimulus dissapears.
  • Almost all human beings have a certain number of benign cutaneous neoplasms and many never seek medical attention.
  • The aim of this study was to record the number of benign tumors studied at the Dermatology Department of a medical facility.
  • We included year of admission, number of biopsies, sex, age, tumor location, histological and clinical diagnoses.
  • RESULTS: We analyzed 9,436 biopsies of which 3,765 constituted benign neoplasms; 595 were not included and our total sample was 3,170 tumors.
  • The most frequent tumors according to histopathological diagnoses in descending order were: melanocytic, cutaneous cysts, fibrous tumors, vascular tumors, epidermal tumors, fat tumors, tumors with hair differentiation, neural tumors, glandular tumors, tumors with sebaceous differentiation, cartilage and bone tumors, and smooth muscle tumors.
  • The most common benign tumors were: Melanocytic nevi, epidermal cysts, seborrheic keratoses, pyogenic granulomas, lipomas and dermatofibromas.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Melanocytes represented by melanocytic nevi (junctional, intradermic and compound) were the most frequent benign neoplasms, followed by epidermoid cysts.
  • Our results illustrate the most common benign tumors observed in a dermatology department.

  • [Title] Cutaneous malignant ossifying fibromyxoid tumor.
  • The tumor, partially surrounded by a shell of woven and lamellar bone, had a lobular arrangement of highly cellular islands of tumor cells embedded in a variably fibrous to myxoid stroma.
  • Areas of tumor necrosis were present.
  • The tumor was diagnosed as an ossifying fibromyxoid tumor (OFMT).
  • OFMT is a rare tumor first described in 1989.
  • Although OFMT usually occurs in deep soft tissue, up to 11% of reported lesions presented as cutaneous tumors.
  • Most are histologically bland and apparently benign tumors, but OFMT with high nuclear grade, high cellularity, and >2 MF/50 high-power fields have shown potential for aggressive behavior including metastasis.
  • Given the histologic features, this tumor was considered a malignant OFMT.

  • [Title] Adenosis tumor of anogenital mammary-like glands: a case report and demonstration of clonality by HUMARA assay.
  • In mammary pathology, adenosis tumor is defined as a clinically recognizable lesion that histologically primarily consists of adenosis, but also exhibits various combinations of diverse epithelial changes seen in other benign breast diseases.
  • A lesion that occurred in the anogenital area of a 46-year-old woman and apparently arose in anogenital mammary-like glands is described and which, in our opinion, is best classified as adenosis tumor.
  • A biopsy revealed a well-demarcated, unencapsulated lesion surrounded by compressed fibrous tissue forming a pseudocapsule.
  • Several histological patterns within the same tumor mass were recognizable: sclerosing adenosis-like changes, variably sized microcysts and cysts, some with rare short papillary projections having hyalinized cores, rare tubular structures exhibiting epithelial features reminiscent of simple ductal hyperplasia, areas with oxyphilic (apocrine) metaplasia, and clear cell epithelial changes resembling mucinous metaplasia.
  • As our case exhibited a number of patterns identical to those seen in diverse benign breast diseases, its classification as adenosis tumor seems justifiable.
  • This cutaneous perianal lesion is indistinguishable microscopically from its mammary analogue and was clinically detectable.

  • Acquired digital fibrokeratoma (ADF) is an uncommon benign tumor of fibrous tissue that presents as smooth, dome-shaped or fingerlike, flesh-colored papules that are mostly located on the distal extremities.
  • As it can easily be misdiagnosed for other common benign lesions such as viral warts, which usually are not subject to routine histopathologic examination, it might be underreported.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Cellular neurothekeomas are distinctive benign cutaneous tumors of uncertain histogenesis.
  • Mean tumor size was 1.1 cm (range: 0.3 to 6 cm; 90% <2 cm).
  • Fifty-two percent of the tumors were limited to the dermis, and 48% also involved superficial subcutaneous tissue.
  • In 30% of cases, neurothekeoma was suggested by the referring pathologist; the most common other diagnoses offered were plexiform fibrohistiocytic tumor, benign fibrous histiocytoma, and a low-grade sarcoma.
  • Ten tumors recurred locally (7 situated on the face), after a mean of 18 months; tumor had been marginally excised or had involved excision margins in all cases with available information.
  • There is no good evidence that these lesions show nerve sheath differentiation and the nomenclature will likely change when the tumor cell lineage is better defined.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Dermatofibroma (DF) and dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) are benign and intermediate malignant fibrotic dermal tumours, respectively.
  • RESULTS: We detected strong expression of TGFbeta-RI and TGFbeta-RII on epidermis and epidermal appendages, moderate expression in vascular endothelial cells, smooth muscle cells and neural tissues, and weak expression in fibroblasts in normal skin sections.
  • The expression levels of TGFbeta-RI and TGFbeta-RII were elevated in the tissue sections of DF in comparison with normal dermal sections using in situ hybridization and immunohistochemical staining.
  • The expression of TGFbeta-RI and TGFbeta-RII was decreased in DFSP in comparison with DF, and their expression was found to be homogeneous in each DFSP tumour cell.
  • The staining for TGF-beta1 was found prominently on matrix and spindle-shaped tumour cells of DF, and peripheral regions of DFSP.
  • Weak expression of TGF-beta1 was found on normal skin or tumour cells in the central part of DFSP.
  • Type I collagen expression was found on spindle-shaped tumour cells in DF, but not in tumour cells of DFSP.

  • DISCUSSION: Secondary anetoderma is usually seen in association with cutaneous infections and benign skin tumors.
  • Myxofibrosarcoma (formerly referred to as myxoid malignant fibrous histiocytoma) is characterized by an abundant myxoid background in at least one half of the tumor.
  • The tumor recurs in almost two-thirds of cases and metastasizes in one-fourth.
  • Our case confirms that a unique, acquired anetodermic lesion can reveal a malignant tumor.

  • Histology revealed low-grade adenosquamous metaplastic carcinoma displaying typical biphasic appearance combining regular tubular structures with surrounding storiform, sclerosing fibrous stroma.
  • There were recognized metastases by one woman in two ipsilateral axillary lymph nodes mimicking benign breast heterotopia in one of them.
  • In two women with aggressive course the original biopsy was falsely interpreted, once as phyllodes tumor and secondly as benign sclerosing pseudotumor.
  • It arises in the deep breast tissue and structurally resembles the microcystic adnexal carcinoma of the skin.
  • Low-grade adenosquamous carcinoma, however, has nothing to do with syringomatous adenoma of the nipple, which is a benign tumor of the skin adnexa.
  • Differential diagnosis includes spectrum of non-neoplastic slerosing lesions and above-mentioned phylloid tumor.
  • The rarity of this neoplasm does not exclude deep knowledge.

  • The characteristic histologic appearance of OM is sometimes difficult to grasp because of 3 main factors: the anatomic particularities of the nail apparatus, the often fragmented aspect of the tissue specimen, and the choice of the section planes, which strongly modified the morphologic appearances observed.
  • This reconstitution gives us a better understanding of the apparent diversity of the morphologic aspects observed in linking them to the anatomic site of the tumor.
  • In this second category, the fibrous base becomes elongated in shape, taking the shape of the anatomic contour of the PNF.
  • This pattern is different from the classical OM visualized in longitudinal sections, which appears as a single and large fibroepithelial tumor, that is, the multiple distal epithelial digitations arranged along a transversal plane are not seen.
  • We individualize 3 misleading clinical variants: tumor with a verrucous surface that is located in the lateral nail fold, as a band pattern suggesting wart or Bowen disease; a total dystrophy of the nail unit mimicking a squamous cell carcinoma; and pseudofibrokeratoma type.
  • OM is a benign tumor with a broader morphologic spectrum than previously thought.

  • The patient's medical history included a transurethral prostatic resection 3 years earlier and, 1 year later, a right nephrectomy for a 2-kg kidney tumor verbally reported as "benign."
  • Histopathologically, the excised tissue was an exo-endophytic nodule of a solid form composed of pleomorphic neoplastic cells with abundant clear cytoplasm, surrounded by fibrous collagen septae, blood vessel proliferation, and areas of hemorrhage (Figures 2 and 3).
