  • [Title] Desmoid tumor: a disease opportune for molecular insights.
  • Desmoid tumors are monoclonal proliferations that fall within a broad histologic spectrum of fibrous mesenchymal tumors that ranges from benign proliferations of scar tissue to high-grade fibrosarcomas.
  • CTNNB1 and APC are part of the Wnt signaling pathway and mutations in either gene result in stabilization of the beta-catenin protein and allow nuclear translocation and binding of beta-catenin to the T-cell factor/lymphoid enhancer factor (TCF/Lef) family of transcription factors, resulting in activation of target genes which may underlie desmoid tumor biology and clinical behavior.
  • This knowledge will eventually result in the development of patient and tumor tailored therapies and assist in the control and eradication of this disease.

  • [Title] [Clinical results and the mechanism of bone healing for the repair of bone defects due to tumor resection with novel interporous TCP].
  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the clinical results and the mechanism of bone healing for the repair of bone defects following tumor resection with novel interporous TCP bone graft, and to test the hypothesis of "structural transplantation".
  • METHODS: From January 2003 to December 2005, 61 cases of various bone defects following the curettage of the benign bone tumors were treated with interporous TCP, with 33 males and 28 females, including bone fibrous dysplasia in 8 cases, bone cyst in 23 cases, eosinophilic granuloma in 12 cases, enchondroma in 13 cases, non-ossifying fibroma in 2 cases, and osteoblastoma in 3 cases.
  • Tumor sizes varied from 1.5 cm x 1.0 cm to 7.0 cm x 5.0 cm.
  • The interface between the implanted bone and host bone became fuzzy, and vascularized tissue began growing inside the implanted graft as a "lining" structure.
  • CONCLUSION: The interporous TCP proves to be effective for clinical reparation of bone defects following tumor resection.

  • [Title] Giant cell tumor of bone: a neoplasm or a reactive condition?
  • Giant cell tumor of bone (GCTB) is a benign but locally aggressive bone tumor of young adults.
  • Individual genetic makeup, local tissue factors as well as the amount of hemorrhage may play a key role in the final effects and outcome.
  • If hemorrhagic foci are replaced by proliferation of fibroblasts and histiocytes, then a picture of fibrous histiocytic lesion is emerged.

  • [Title] Histological vascular invasion by tumors is a risk factor for distant metastasis in malignant fibrous histiocytoma.
  • BACKGROUND: The appearance of distant metastasis is a fatal sign in patients with soft tissue sarcoma.
  • Therefore, we studied the risk factors associated with distant metastasis that appear in malignant fibrous histiocytoma.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study group comprised sixty patients treated for malignant fibrous histiocytoma at our hospital between 1991 and 2002.
  • We retrospectively studied whether age, tumor size, tumor site, developmental form, surgical margin, local recurrence, histological subtype, vascular invasion and histological grade are risk factors associated with the appearance of distant metastasis.
  • CONCLUSION: Histological vascular invasion by tumors is a risk factor associated with distant metastasis that appears in malignant fibrous histiocytoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Low grade fibromyxoid sarcoma has been fully described histologically; however, the fine needle aspiration (FNA) cytologic findings are scantily defined, and the distinction from other benign and malignant soft tissue tumors can be difficult.
  • The excised tumor was well circumscribed, focally infiltrating the surrounding muscles.
  • The cut surface was variable, featuring fibrous, solid, fleshy and myxoid areas.
  • Microscopically, the solid, fibrous areas displayed increased cellularity with storiform, intersecting and parallel patterns.
  • The tumor cells were spindly, with fusiform, uniform nuclei.
  • The tumor cells were positive for vimentin, alpha-1-antitrypsin and lysozyme and negative for S-100, actin, desmin and CD34.
  • CONCLUSION: Although low grade fibromyxoid sarcoma is a rare neoplasm, it should be recognized and distinguished from other soft tissue tumors because of its low malignant potential.
  • The definitive FNA cytologic diagnosis can be challenging but is possible if the tumor is adequately sampled, with multiple passes from different areas.

  • [Title] [Expression of TEIF protein in soft tissue tumors and its significance].
  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the expression of TEIF protein in human tumors of soft tissue and its significance.
  • The expression of TEIF in 166 cases of sarcomas and 28 case benign tumors or tumor-like lesions of soft tissue arranged in tissue chip was analyzed by immunohistochemistry.
  • The immunohistochemical staining of TEIF showed that about 58% (97/166) of sarcomas were positive and significantly different from that of benign tumors or tumor-like lesions (11%, 3/28).
  • The positive staining was predominantly in synovial sarcoma 94% (16/17), primitive neuroectodermal tumor (PNET) 91% (21/23), both of which were significantly higher than 43% (6/14) of dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, 38% (6/16) of myxofibrosarcoma, 36% (8/22) of malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor, 32% (6/19) of liposarcoma, (P < 0.05, respectively), but not higher than 75% (15/20) of malignant fibrous histiocytoma, 70% (7/10) of rhabdomyosarcoma or 64% (9/14) of leiomyosarcoma.
  • CONCLUSIONS: TEIF protein could be detected in large part of soft tissue sarcomas, and it not only over-expressed in most of PNET, synovial sarcomas, but also correlated with histological grading.

  • [Title] Solitary fibrous tumor of the liver.
  • We report a new case of benign solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) of the liver.
  • Ultrasonography and computed tomography showed a large tumor, 20 cm in diameter, in the right lobe of the liver.
  • The tumor measured 30 x 28 x 14 cm and weighed 4725 g.
  • Microscopic evaluation showed a benign SFT of the liver with tumor cells typically positive for vimentin and CD34.
  • This is a rare neoplasm of mesenchymal origin that occasionally involves the liver in adult patients.
  • Most SFTs are benign, but some may have malignant histological features and recur locally or metastasize.
  • Because of their rarity, overall experience has not been significant and little has been published concerning this tumor, Including the present one, 28 cases have been reported in the English literature.
  • As SFT of the liver is often a benign neoplasm, chemotherapy or radiotherapy should not be necessary, and should be reserved for when resection is incomplete and/or histological examination reveals features of malignancy.
  • Surgeons must be aware of SFT of the liver, and this neoplasm should be included in the differential diagnosis of a single large hepatic mass.

  • We report a patient with a nonresectable histologically benign solitary fibrous tumor who suffered from paraneoplastic non-islet cell tumor hypoglycemia (NICTH).
  • Diagnostic workup revealed malignant characteristics in which the tumor showed up as, presumably, false-negative on fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET), while being positive on tyrosine-PET.
  • Neoadjuvant treatment, which consisted of combined chemo-radiation and consecutive selective embolization of the tumor feeding vessels, caused such a therapeutic effect, on both NICTH and reduction in tumor volume, that a secondary resection, with the patient in a normoglycemic status, was possible.
  • Our report highlights several important issues in the management of the patient with a nonresectable solitary fibrous tumor with severe episodes of hypoglycemia due to NICTH.

  • BACKGROUND: Plexiform fibrohistiocytic tumor is a soft-tissue tumor of intermediate malignancy occurring in children and young adults but is only rarely found in infants.
  • The tumor usually involves the upper limbs and is slow growing and painless.
  • Histologically, the tumor is characterized by nodules of histiocyte-like and multinucleated cells and fascicles of spindle cells arranged in a plexiform pattern.
  • CONCLUSION: In infants, wide excision with large safety margins should be performed as the behaviour of this tumor remains uncertain.

  • [Title] Why do patients with low-grade soft tissue sarcoma die?
  • INTRODUCTION: The patterns of failure and mechanisms of sarcoma-specific death are poorly characterized among the minority of patients with low-grade soft tissue sarcoma (STS) who succumb to disease.
  • Conversely, of DODR, extremity (47%) and trunk (18%) were the most common sites, but histology was more variable [liposarcoma 35%, malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH) 20%, fibrosarcoma 12%, extraskeletal myxoid chondrosarcoma 10%].
  • Nonextremity site, larger size, and less than R0 resection are the most important risk factors for DOD, and distinct patterns of recurrence and death are predicted by primary tumor site.

  • [Title] [Reassessment of the pathological diagnosis in 33 cases of malignant fibrous histiocytoma].
  • OBJECTIVE: Since malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH) may be taken as an undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma (UPS), this study was conducted to reassess 33 previously diagnosed MFH cases in the past 10 years based on the latest WHO concept.
  • METHODS: Thirty-three cases in tissue microarray were studied by immunohistochemistry with panels of neurogenic, myogenic, and lipogenic antibodies.
  • RESULTS: Among the 33 cases, 17 cases (51.5%) of MFH had their diagnoses changed, including 5 leiomyosarcomas, 3 malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors, 1 fibrosarcoma, 1 inflammatory myofibrosarcoma, 1 giant cell tumor and 1 angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma.
  • The median tumor size was 6.0 cm (range: 3.0 to 14.0 cm), 8 cases (50%) located in lower limb and 5 cases (31.3%) located in thigh.
  • Eleven cases (68.8%) variously expressed CD68 (KP1) and 7 cases (43.8%) expressed CD68 (PG-M1), which were much higher than leiomyosarcoma, malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor and liposarcoma with significant difference.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Sclerosing epithelioid fibrosarcoma (SEF) has distinctive morphology and occurs mainly in deep soft tissue of adult extremities.
  • The OMF Pathology Department Registry was searched for cases coded from 1990 to the present as "SEF," "fibrosarcoma not otherwise specified" or "neoplasm of uncertain histiogenesis."
  • Tumor location included the infra-temporal fossa, buccal mucosa (recurrence extending into bone), anterior mandible (intraosseous primary, focally extending into soft tissue), and left parotid and submandibular gland (with metaplastic bone) regions.
  • Tumor sizes ranged from 1.0 to 5.7 cm, median 3.5 cm.
  • Histologically, the tumors were well delineated and multinodular, separated by fibrous septae.
  • The spindled to primarily epithelioid tumor cells formed moderately cellular sheets and cords of irregularly contoured medium to large, round to oval, occasionally overlapping nuclei, indistinct nucleoli, wispy eosinophilic (retracting) cytoplasm, and distinctive cytoplasmic borders, embedded in osteoid-like stroma.
  • Immunohistochemically, the tumor cells were positive for vimentin, 1 case focally for CD34, whereas all cases were negative for S100 protein, keratins, EMA, desmin, and SMA.
  • The differential diagnosis for these tumors in this site includes sclerosing carcinoma, Ewing/PNET, osteosarcoma, osteoblastoma, and benign and malignant myoepithelial salivary gland tumors.
  • The collagen, focal spindle cell features, HPC-like vasculature, and weak focal CD34 reactivity in one case might have raised a possible relationship between OMFRSEF and low grade malignant solitary fibrous tumor, but the intraosseous propensity, epithelioid features and relative lack of CD34 make this a distinctive entity.

  • [Title] Solitary fibrous tumor of the oral cavity: the need for an extensive sampling for a correct diagnosis.
  • BACKGROUND: Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is an uncommon but well-characterized soft tissue tumor that was first described as a pleural lesion and now is considered ubiquitous, having been detected at many extra-pleural sites (abdominal cavity, orbit, upper respiratory tract, and oral cavity).
  • RESULTS: Microscopically all eight tumors showed widely variable morphological features in terms of cellular density and stromal architecture, thus simulating benign fibrous histiocytoma, schwannoma, hemangiopericytoma or low-grade sarcoma in distinct areas of the same lesion.
  • Among these eight cases, five had been diagnosed as SFT, two as benign fibrous histiocytoma and one as low-grade sarcoma.
  • Therefore, an accurate histological examination of multiple tissue sections is advised, along with the use of appropriate immunostains.

  • Grossly, cut surface of the tumor appeared as the gray fibrous tissue without any definited lump detected.
  • Histologically, the ill-circumscribed lesion located predominantly in the deep dermis with an extension into the subcutaneous tissue.
  • The tumor cells extended downward under the epithelium and infiltrated between the fat tissue, nerve fibers as well as the capillaries making a lesion looked somewhat like a harmatoma.
  • CONCLUSIONS: PVF is a benign mesenchymal lesion with a predilection of involving the vulva of prepubertal girls or adults in rare cases.
  • PVF may represent an overgrowth of normal stromal tissue of vulva.

  • [Title] Myxoid solitary fibrous tumor: a clinicopathologic study of three cases.
  • While focal myxoid areas are occasionally observed in solitary fibrous tumors, neoplasms of this type exhibiting extensive myxoid change are considered exceedingly uncommon.
  • Due to their rarity, the biologic behavior of myxoid solitary fibrous tumor has not been determined.
  • Three cases of myxoid solitary fibrous tumor are described in order to better characterize the clinical and pathologic features of this uncommon variant of solitary fibrous tumor.
  • Sites of involvement included the retroperitoneum, pelvis, and soft tissue of the neck.
  • Histologically, all cases were characterized predominantly by the presence of myxoid stroma comprising 70% to 100% of the tumor.
  • The tumor cells were predominantly spindled in all cases, and arranged randomly, in loose fascicles, or in anastomosing strands imparting a microcystic/reticular appearance.
  • To date, all cases have followed a benign course without evidence of recurrence or metastasis with a follow-up duration ranging from 50 to 87 months.
  • The data suggest that myxoid solitary fibrous tumors are associated with an indolent clinical course and favorable prognosis.

  • We tested the expression of the CD163 protein in 1,105 human malignancies and normal tissues using tissue microarrays and conventional paraffin-embedded tissue sections.
  • Besides staining nonneoplastic monocytes and histiocytes (tissue macrophages), membranous/cytoplasmic staining for CD163 was primarily limited to neoplasms with monocytic/histiocytic differentiation.
  • A subset of atypical fibrous histiocytomas (9 of 16), benign fibrous histiocytomas (6 of 9), and atypical fibroxanthomas (1 of 3) also showed CD163 staining.
  • Its limited range of expression and tissue specificity indicate that CD163 may have significant diagnostic utility in separating specific tumors with monocytic and histiocytic derivation from other entities in their differential diagnosis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Cystadenocarcinoma is a rare malignant tumor, with an estimated incidence of 2% of malignant salivary gland tumors.
  • Cytological diagnosis of cystadenocarcinoma is important for differential diagnosis between benign lesions and malignant tumors with cystic growth.
  • Preoperative fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) showed a small number of tumor cell clusters in the cystic fluid.
  • Tumor cells had a small vacuolated, soap-bubble appearance in the cytoplasm.
  • Histologically, the tumor was not encapsulated, but formed large cystic spaces against a background of fibrous connective tissue.
  • The tumor cells in the cystic dilated duct showed papillary structures, which were continuous with the lining cuboidal cells.
  • As tumor cells with a small vacuolated, soap-bubble appearance of the cytoplasm are common findings of both cystadenocarcinoma and ACC-PCV, they are of little use for differentiation; however, they are so characteristic that the majority of benign salivary gland lesions with cystic structures can be excluded, if enough attention is paid.

  • [Title] Angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma: a review with recent genetic findings.
  • Angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma is a neoplasm of intermediate biologic potential most often arising in the extremities of children and young adults.
  • Its rarity may lead to misdiagnosis as either a reactive lesion or a benign or higher-grade tumor.
  • Originally described as a type of malignant fibrous histiocytoma, its differentiation remains enigmatic, with precise histogenesis still only hypothesized.
  • The literature on angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma is reviewed, particularly with regard to recent molecular genetic developments and differentiation, and its morphology, immunohistochemistry, and differential diagnosis are summarized.

  • [Title] Subconjunctival herniated orbital fat: A benign adipocytic lesion that may mimic pleomorphic lipoma and atypical lipomatous tumor.
  • Over the past several years, we have seen a number of cases in which this prolapsed fat was confused pathologically with a neoplasm of adipocytic lineage, specifically pleomorphic lipoma and atypical lipomatous neoplasm (well-differentiated liposarcoma).
  • Histopathologically, all specimens showed an admixture of mature fat, fibrous septae lacking hyperchromatic cells, adipocytes with intranuclear vacuoles (Lochkern cells), multinucleated giant cells with a wreathlike configuration of normochromatic nuclei (floret cells), and varying numbers of histiocytes, lymphocytes, plasma cells, and mast cells.
  • We conclude that subconjunctival herniated orbital fat commonly contains multinucleated floretlike giant cells, fibrous septae, and Lochkern cells, features that may result in diagnostic confusion with pleomorphic lipoma and atypical lipomatous neoplasms.
  • Importantly, specific diagnostic features, such as aggregates of bland spindled cells associated with wiry collagen, as seen in pleomorphic lipoma, and enlarged hyperchromatic cells within fibrous septae, as in atypical lipomatous neoplasms, are entirely absent in herniated orbital fat.

  • [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.
  • The high mobility group A (HMGA2) gene encodes a protein that alters chromatin structure and regulates the transcription of many genes; it is implicated in both benign and malignant neoplasias, but its rearrangements are a feature of development of several mesenchymal tumors.
  • We thus analyzed 880 cases on tissue microarray and 182 cases on whole sections (211 adipocytic tumors, 628 sarcomas, 213 benign mesenchymal tumors, and 10 normal adipose tissues).
  • A nuclear immunostaining was detected in 86% of conventional and intramuscular lipomas, in 86% of well-differentiated liposarcomas and in 67% of dedifferentiated liposarcomas, as opposed to 16% of other benign adipose tumors and to 15% of non-well-differentiated liposarcoma/dedifferentiated liposarcoma sarcomas.
  • Among benign mesenchymal tumors and lesions, it was detected in 90% of nodular fasciitis and in 88% of benign fibrous histiocytomas with respective specificities of 85 and 100%, and in 90% of aggressive angiomyxoma, contrary to other vulvovaginal tumor types, which expressed HMGA2 only rarely.
  • The normal adipose tissue was always negative for HMGA2.
  • Although not specific, immunohistochemical detection of the HMGA2 protein is helpful for the distinction of normal adipose tissue from well-differentiated lesions, particularly on biopsy or on re-excision.
  • Finally, and may be more importantly, HMGA2 is useful for the diagnosis of benign fibrous histiocytoma, nodular fasciitis and vulvovaginal benign mesenchymal tumors.

  • The tumor is most frequently found in the axilla, followed by shoulder, inguinal area, and chest wall.
  • This tumor can cause much concern about malignancy because it is firm and may be fixed to underlying tissues.
  • Despite the occasional local recurrence, the clinical course is benign and the prognosis is excellent.

  • [Title] Oral calcifying fibrous pseudotumor: case analysis and review.
  • Calcifying fibrous pseudotumor (CFT) is a rare distinct soft-tissue lesion characterized histologically by lymphoplasmacytic aggregates in a rich collagenized background with abundant psammomatous and dystrophic calcifications.
  • Occurring most often in children and young adults, CFTs are clinically benign lesions that can form over a broad anatomic distribution, including in subcutaneous and deep soft tissues, as well as in serosal and visceral locations.
  • Simple excision with a margin of normal tissue is the treatment of choice.
  • In this article, we describe a case of CFT in a 29-year-old woman with a 7-cm mass on the right upper gingiva and hard palate, discuss the differential diagnosis with other oral spindle cell lesions, such as, desmoid fibromatosis, nodular fasciitis, inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors, solitary fibrous tumor and also review the recent literature on this rare benign entity.

  • [Title] Assessment of angiogenesis in soft-tissue tumors.
  • The aims of our paper were to establish the main morphological and immunohistochemical aspects of tumor vessels, to quantify angiogenesis in soft-tissue tumors and to study the possible relationship between mast cells and angiogenesis.
  • For this purpose, we immunohistochemically investigated 54 cases of benign and malignant tumors for smooth muscle actin and endothelial markers CD34 and CD31.
  • Our results strongly support the presence of a large number of immature and intermediate blood vessels in the tumor area.
  • Microvessel density was higher especially in liposarcoma and malignant fibrous histiocytoma, and this finding suggests the application of the antiangiogenic therapy in soft tissue tumors in addition to conventional methods.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Prevalence, extension and characteristics of fluid-fluid levels in bone and soft tissue tumors.
  • The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence, extension and signal characteristics of fluid-fluid levels in a large series of 700 bone and 700 soft tissue tumors.
  • Out of a multi-institutional database, MRI of 700 consecutive patients with a bone tumor and MRI of 700 consecutive patients with a soft tissue neoplasm were retrospectively reviewed for the presence of fluid-fluid levels.
  • Of 700 patients with a bone tumor, 19 (10 male and 9 female; mean age, 29 years) presented with a fluid-fluid level (prevalence 2.7%).
  • Diagnoses included aneurysmal bone cyst (ten cases), fibrous dysplasia (two cases), osteoblastoma (one case), simple bone cyst (one case), telangiectatic osteosarcoma (one case), "brown tumor" (one case), chondroblastoma (one case) and giant cell tumor (two cases).
  • Of 700 patients with a soft tissue tumor, 20 (9 males and 11 females; mean age, 34 years) presented with a fluid-fluid level (prevalence 2.9%).
  • Diagnoses included cavernous hemangioma (12 cases), synovial sarcoma (3 cases), angiosarcoma (1 case), aneurysmal bone cyst of soft tissue (1 case), myxofibrosarcoma (1 case) and high-grade sarcoma "not otherwise specified" (2 cases).
  • In our series, the largest reported in the literature to the best of our knowledge, the presence of fluid-fluid levels is a rare finding with a prevalence of 2.7 and 2.9% in bone and soft tissue tumors, respectively.
  • Fluid-fluid levels remain a non-specific finding and can occur in a wide range of bone and soft tissue tumors, both benign and malignant.
  • Therefore, they cannot be considered diagnostic of any particular type of tumor, and the diagnosis should be made on the basis of other radiological and clinical findings.

  • Therefore, the natural history of this tumor entity needs more enlightenment.
  • After a short time, interval tumor recurrence was seen, 2 years and 6 months later second surgery was performed.
  • In conclusion, consequent long-time follow-up for SFTs are necessary, especially after incomplete tumor resection.

  • [Title] Thallium-201 chloride scintigraphy in soft tissue tumors.
  • OBJECTIVE: We report the findings of Thallium-201 chloride ((201)TlCl) scintigraphy and consider how to use this technique to evaluate the character of soft tissue lesions.
  • Nineteen patients were malignant and 72 were benign.
  • The retention index (RI) was calculated in 9 patients in the malignant group and in 16 patients in the benign group.
  • One malignant fibrous histiocytoma patient was high only in the delayed phase and 1 liposarcoma patient was high only in the early phase.
  • In benign lesions, no lipoma showed increased uptake.
  • Clinically-considered benign patients consisted of tumorous lesions or inflammatory disease.
  • RI was variable in both malignant and benign lesions and no statistically significant difference was seen between malignant and benign lesions by t-test (p=0.72).
  • CONCLUSIONS: A high (201)TlCl uptake lesion is more frequently seen in malignant tumors, but regardless of whether the tumor is benign or malignant, according to the histopathological variety, the (201)TlCl uptake pattern can not be the only indicator to differentiate malignant from benign tumors.

  • Angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma (AFH) is a rare soft tissue tumor that usually occurs in children and young adults.
  • We have studied an AFH from a 9-year-old boy whose tumor displayed a t(12;22)(q13;q12) as the sole cytogenetic aberration.
  • FISH,RT-PCR, and sequence analyses revealed an EWSR1-ATF1 fusion gene that has previously been reported in clear cell sarcoma (CCS), a soft tissue sarcoma that is morphologically and clinically distinct from AFH.
  • This study thus has demonstrated that the EWSR1-ATF1 chimera represents a fusion gene that can be associated with different tumor types.

  • The tumor extensively involved the body and tail of the pancreas and contiguously invaded the spleen.
  • The histopathology of the tumor was similar to that of serous cystadenoma, but mild nuclear hyperchromatism and atypism were noted, and the neoplastic invasion of nerve fibers in the stroma was observed.
  • In the spleen neoplastic cells forming microcysts were diffusely insinuated in the red pulp without the fibrous stroma.
  • The present case is the second example of this kind of neoplasm that showed direct splenic invasion.
  • Because serous cystadenocarcinoma of the pancreas exhibits bland cytological features, diligent search for the invasion of the surrounding tissue or peripheral nerves is needed for the differentiation from its benign counterpart.

  • Within 6 months after initial presentation, he underwent 4 subsequent abdominal explorations for diagnosis, tumor reduction, and intestinal obstructions.
  • Due to accelerated tumor growth and deteriorated general condition, as a last resort, a chemotherapy trial with vincristin and methotrexate was carried out.
  • This regimen proved to be effective in reducing the tumor burden and improving the patient's general condition.
  • Outcome of IAF depends on early diagnosis and complete tumor resection, and, if indicated, timely employment of neo/adjuvant chemotherapy.

  • [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.

  • The term malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH) is widely used for pleomorphic soft tissue sarcomas without a specific line of differentiation.
  • MFH is included in the category of fibrohistiocytic soft tissue tumors.
  • A morphometric approach compares the measure of nuclear pleomorphism of the factor XIIIa-positive cells with that of the factor XIIIa-negative tumor cells in high-grade MFH.
  • The immunohistochemical approach compares the factor XIIIa-positive and -negative cell populations with regard to mutations of p53 tumor suppressor gene in p53-positive MFH cases.
  • We selected 58 cases of soft tissue pleomorphic or storiform-pleomorphic MFH on the basis of histopathological examinations.
  • We found that mean nuclear area and mean nuclear Ferret diameter in factor XIIIa-positive cells differed significantly from those of the tumor cells in all cases.

  • [Title] [Usefulness of diffusion-weighted MRI in differentiating benign from malignant musculoskeletal tumors].
  • PURPOSE: To evaluate the usefulness of diffusion-weighted MRI in distinguishing different components and in differentiating benign from malignant musculoskeletal tumors.
  • We evaluated 57 tumors (9 bone tumors and 48 soft tissue tumors).
  • All tumors were classified into 8 groups (myxomatous, fibrous, cystic, cartilaginous, fatty components, hematomas, other benign tumors, and other malignant tumors).
  • In cartilaginous tumors, malignant tumor ADC values (2.33 +/- 0.44) were higher than those of benign tumors (2.13 +/- 0.13).
  • However, there was no significant difference between benign and malignant tumors.
  • Except for high-intensity components on T1-weighted imaging and low or homogeneously very high intensity components on T2-weighted imaging, there was a significant difference in ADC between malignant (1.35 +/- 0.40) and benign (1.97 +/- 0.50) tumors.
  • CONCLUSION: Within the limited number of cases, there was a significant difference in ADC between malignant and benign tumors.

  • [Title] Proteomic profiles differ between bone invasive and noninvasive benign meningiomas of fibrous and meningothelial subtype.
  • However, some tumors may, despite their benign appearance, display invasive growth behavior.
  • Tumor tissue from 13 patients with fibrous (6 invasive and 7 noninvasive) and 29 with meningothelial (10 invasive and 19 noninvasive) grade I meningiomas were analyzed by surface-enhanced laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (SELDI).
  • Comparing the protein spectra from invasive and noninvasive fibrous meningioma we found 22 peaks whose intensities were significantly different between the two groups (P < 0.001).
  • In meningothelial meningioma the same comparison yielded six significantly differentially expressed peaks (P < 0.001), which to a large degree separated the invasive from noninvasive tissue (area under ROC curve = 0.873).
  • By analyzing the protein spectra in benign meningiomas we could differentiate between invasive and noninvasive growth behavior in both fibrous and meningothelial meningiomas of grade I.

  • [Title] Pathologic and MR imaging features of benign fibrous soft-tissue tumors in adults.
  • Benign fibrous (fibroblastic or myofibroblastic) soft-tissue tumors are a heterogeneous group of fibrous lesions with widely varied anatomic locations, biologic behavior, and pathologic features.
  • The four broad categories of fibrous proliferation are benign fibrous proliferations, fibromatoses, fibrosarcomas, and fibrous proliferations of infancy and childhood.
  • In adults, fibrous tumors are among the most common soft-tissue lesions encountered in clinical practice.
  • Histologic features of the tumor also may be depicted on T2-weighted MR images.
  • Hypocellular fibrous tumors with dense collagenous components tend to have lower signal intensity on T2-weighted images than do lesions that are more cellular or that contain greater amounts of extracellular myxoid matrix.
  • When interpreting MR images of soft-tissue masses in adults, radiologists should be aware of the clinical behavior, common sites of occurrence, and histopathologic and imaging features of the common benign fibrous soft-tissue tumors.

  • [Title] Imaging and diagnostic strategy of soft tissue tumors in children.
  • The diagnosis of a soft tissue mass in children is a common clinical situation.
  • Most of the lesions are benign and can be treated conservatively or by non-mutilating surgery.
  • Nevertheless, the possibility of a malignant soft tissue tumor must be systematically considered.
  • The most frequent benign soft tissue lesions in children are vascular lesions, fibrous and fibrohistiocytic tumors and pseudotumors, whereas rhabdomyosarcomas account for 50% of all soft tissue sarcomas.
  • A child presenting an atypical soft tissue mass should be managed by a multidisciplinary centre, and primary resection must be proscribed until a definite diagnosis has been established.
  • The role of imaging is essential either to confirm the benign nature of the mass or to give arguments to perform a diagnostic biopsy.

  • [Transliterated title] Solitární fibrózní tumor pleurální dutiny.
  • 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.
  • 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.

  • BACKGROUND: While advances in reconstructive surgery have facilitated limb preservation in extremity soft tissue sarcoma (ESTS), limited information exists as to the functional outcome of patients with these reconstructed extremities.
  • The effect of soft tissue reconstruction on function and health status at 1-2-year follow-up was analyzed using univariate and multivariate regression.
  • Flap reconstruction was associated with more postoperative impairments [Musculoskeletal Tumor Society (MSTS) score 30.4 versus 32.2; P = 0.004] and activity limitations [Toronto Extremity Salvage Score (TESS) score 83.3 versus 89.5; P = 0.0132] on univariate analyses, but did not significantly predict postoperative function or health status outcomes on multivariate analyses.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Radiologic examination showed mixed lytic/blastic lesions with soft tissue shadow in 5 cases and associated periosteal reaction in 3 cases.
  • The spindly tumor cells showed mild degree of nuclear pleomorphism, with occasional mitotic figures demonstrated in all of the 9 cases.
  • The tumor cells permeated adjoining pre-existing bony trabeculae and bone marrow in all cases.
  • Three cases also showed soft tissue involvement.
  • CONCLUSIONS: LGCOS often posses important diagnostic pitfalls due to the relatively bland-looking tumor cell morphology and associated large woven or longitudinal seams of lamellar-like bone.

  • [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.

  • Desmoplastic fibroblastoma ("collagenous fibroma") is a rare benign, slowly progressive fibrous soft tissue tumor that ranges 1-20 cm in size.
  • The tumor occurs in all ages, predominantly in the upper part of the body.
  • The tumor often infiltrates the subcutis; less often it invades the fascia and skeletal muscle or causes bone erosions.
  • Histologically, the tumor is composed of spindle-shaped cells embedded in a densely collagenous stroma, sometimes forming a pseudo-capsule.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography as well as ultrasonography are used to define the extensions of the tumor.
  • Because it is clinically extremely difficult to determine if soft tissue tumors are benign or malignant, all should be excised with a margin of safety and examined histologically.
