  • [Title] Computer-aided diagnosis of soft-tissue tumors using sonographic morphologic and texture features.
  • RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to develop a computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) system in assessing the sonographic morphologic and texture features of soft-tissue tumors.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: The retrospective study involved 114 pathology proven cases including 73 benign and 41 malignant soft-tissue tumors.
  • The tumor regions were delineated by an experienced radiologist who was unknown to the pathologic result.
  • Then, we applied 10 morphologic features and 6 gray-level co-occurrence matrix texture features to analyze the tumor regions.
  • To classify the tumors as benign or malignant, we used two methods, a linear discriminant analysis with stepwise feature selection and a multilayer neural network with the back-propagation algorithm as classifiers.
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study has shown that performing the CAD system with both morphologic and texture features on sonography, can successfully distinguish between benign and malignant soft-tissue tumors.
  • Moreover, it can also provide a second opinion for the tumor diagnosis and avert unnecessary biopsy.

  • INTRODUCTION: Malignant tumors are uncommon in the neonatal period and benign tumors may have malignant potential.
  • OBJECTIVES: To describe the neoplasms diagnosed and treated in newborns (</= 28 days of life) in the Hospital Universitario de Canarias and their association with congenital abnormalities and to evaluate prenatal diagnosis of these tumors.
  • The variables analyzed were the percentage of neonatal neoplasms among the total number of cancer cases in children aged less than 14 years, their incidence among all the newborns in our hospital, sex, year of diagnosis, age at clinical diagnosis, the presence or absence of prenatal diagnosis, type of tumor (histologic diagnosis), association with syndromes or other congenital anomalies, treatment, and long-term outcome.
  • Histologic diagnoses were neuroblastoma (n = 5; 31.2 %), teratoma/ germ cell tumor (n = 4; 25 %), soft tissue sarcoma (one fibrosarcoma of the thigh and two hemangiopericytoma of the back and heart; 18.8 %), and one case each of mesoblastic nephroma, cerebral tumor (ependymoblastoma), melanoma (associated with giant congenital melanocytic nevi), and acute leukemia (associated with Down syndrome).

  • Myoepithelioma of soft tissue is a recently categorized entity and myoepithelial carcinoma is extremely rare.
  • We describe a case of myoepithelial carcinoma of soft tissue in a 30-year-old male patient, who presented with a painless mass located at the back of left leg involving popliteal fossa that was present since childhood.
  • The distinct histopathological features included infiltrative margins, cytologically moderate to severely atypical epithelioid/spindled cells with prominent nucleoli, 3-4 mitoses/10HPF, tumor necrosis and lymphovascular invasion.
  • Recognition of myoepithelial carcinoma is clinically significant because compared to its benign counterpart, this has increased frequency of local recurrences and metastases that warrants a close clinical follow-up.

  • [Title] Morphologic spectrum, immunohistochemical analysis, and clinical features of a series of granular cell tumors of soft tissues: a study from a tertiary referral cancer center.
  • A granular cell tumor (GCT) is relatively uncommon and objectively diagnosed with neural markers on immunohistochemistry (IHC).
  • Herein, we present morphologic spectrum of 12 GCTs of soft tissues and skin, including 10 benign and 2 malignant subtypes with an optimal diagnostic IHC panel.
  • Six cases occurred in soft tissues and skin of extremities, 4 in the breast soft tissues, and 1 case each in the back and preauricular region, respectively.
  • On histopathology, all cases invariably revealed a nonencapsulated infiltrating tumor comprising groups and nests of granular cells with vesicular nuclei.
  • Immunohistochemistry in 10 cases (83.3%) showed diffuse S-100 positivity in all 7 benign and 2 malignant cases: cytoplasmic CD68 positivity (all 10 cases) and membranous vimentin staining (all 4 cases).
  • A GCT is a discrete tumor entity and can be identified from other granular lesions by its proximity to nerves and objective identification with diffuse S-100 positivity, CD68 positivity, and membranous vimentin positivity that form an optimal IHC panel in limited resource settings, irrespective of benign or malignant types.

  • BACKGROUND: Cutaneous myoepithelioma, both benign and malignant, is a rare neoplasm composed of neoplastic myoepithelial cells showing diverse histopathological features, and criteria for discriminating benign or malignant have not been fully clarified.
  • PATIENT: We present a case of cutaneous myoepithelial carcinoma in a 62-year-old woman presenting a solid mass in the right back.
  • RESULTS: Resected tumor was located in the whole dermis and subcutis.
  • Tumor cells were all epithelioid, although plasmacytoid and glycogen-rich clear cells were also observed within the large nodules of the deep part.
  • At present, it seems to be difficult to predict the behavior of myoepithelioma of the skin and soft tissue, although atypia and high mitotic rate are reported to be associated with local recurrence and metastasis.

  • [Title] Glomus tumor of the back: a rare location.
  • A 44-year-old man presented with a 5-year history of localized pain on his back, and a 1.5-cm round, touch-induced painful mass was palpated.
  • A subsequent diagnostic evaluation revealed the presence of a glomus tumor.
  • Glomus tumors are rare, benign, small vascular tumors, which originate from glomus bodies present in the reticular dermis.
  • Glomus tumors constitute less than 2.0% of all primary soft tissue tumors, approximately 80% of the lesions are located in the upper extremity, and more than 75% are subungually located.
  • Nevertheless, to the best of our knowledge, this glomus tumor that occurred on the back is very rare.

  • Subcutaneous panniculitis-like T-cell lymphoma (SPTCL) is an unusual type of skin lymphoma, characterized by subcutaneous soft tissue infiltration with pleomorphic T-cells and benign macrophages that mimic panniculitis.
  • Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis is a rare but potentially fatal disorder which is thought to result from uncontrolled activation and proliferation of T-cells and excessive activation of macrophages.
  • However, nonremitting high fever and panniculitis-like skin lesions over her back, arm, lower abdominal wall, and bilateral pretibial regions developed 1 month later.
  • The immunochemical stain showed a T-cell lineage of tumor cells.

  • [Title] Ossifying fibromyxoid tumor of the nasal septum.
  • The fibromyxoid tumor is quite a rare soft tissue tumor and typically presents as an ossifying fibromyxoid tumor (OFMT) in the subcutis of the extremities of adults.
  • We present a case of a fibromyxoid tumor of the nasal septum in a 49-year-old female who complained of nasal airway obstruction and enlargement of the right contour of the nose.
  • Endonasal, endoscopic tumor excision was performed.
  • The tumor contained spindle-shaped and polygonal cells, mucoid pseudocysts and a fibromyxoid stroma with local calcifications.
  • The clinical behaviour of OFMT in general is benign but some reports have documented atypical tumors with histologic signs of malignancy.

  • Two lesions each arose on the tongue, upper back and popliteal fossa, and one each on the buccal submucosa, shoulder, breast, lateral chest and sole.
  • The presented tumor was an early one because of the shortest duration and the smallest size in Japan.
  • Recent criteria for a benign mesenchymoma including a chondrolipoma were also described.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Lipoma is the most frequently occurring benign soft tissue tumor in the shoulder and the axillary region in middle-aged and older persons, yet few such lipoma cases have been associated with clinical symptoms.
  • A 38-year-old right-handed man presented with an enlarged feeling and a painful back-and-forth popping in his left shoulder.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging showed a homogenous tumor in the subdeltoid that was isointense relative to the subcutaneous fat and fluid collection in the hypertrophic subacromial bursa.
  • As the tumor was considered from the clinical and imaging findings to be attributable to all clinical symptoms, it was resected en bloc with a satisfactory result.
  • Histopathologically, the tumor showed typical features of a simple lipoma.
  • The symptom-mimicking shoulder instability was assumed to be produced by the back-and-forth snapping of the lipoma beneath the deltoid muscle.

  • [Title] Giant-cell tumor of the tendon sheath involving the thoracic spine.
  • Giant-cell tumor of the tendon sheath is a common benign lesion of the synovial membrane that frequently occurs in the hand.
  • It is related to pigmented villonodular synovitis and the occurrence of pigmented villonodular synovitis or giant-cell tumor of the tendon sheath in the axial skeleton is very rare.
  • To data, only three cases of giant-cell tumor of the tendon sheath involving cervical spine have been reported, compared with 26 cases of pigmented villonodular synovitis.
  • Pigmented villonodular synovitis involving the thoracic spine is also extremely rare and our case represents the first reported case of a giant-cell tumor of the tendon sheath involving the thoracic spine.
  • A 26-year-old man presented with left back pain without neurological deficit.
  • Although giant-cell tumor of the tendon sheath in the thoracic spine may be extremely uncommon, it should be considered in the differential diagnosis, especially when a benign lesion appears to originate in the face joint.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • A quarter of a century ago at the International Academy of Pathology in Boston, Mass, Drs Enzinger and Shmookler's seminal abstract on giant cell fibroblastoma (GCF) included 20 GCFs on the back and thigh of mostly male children.
  • All cases had benign behavior, but almost half recurred.
  • The caveat was mistaking this tumor for a malignancy.
  • They proposed a relationship of this childhood tumor to dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP).
  • Two cases of pure GCF recurred as a hybrid tumor with DFSP areas, one of these with hypercellular DFSP.
  • Additional observations of marked perivascular and onionskin-like chronic inflammation and consistent hemorrhage may aid in the diagnosis of this previously well-described tumor.

  • Spindle cell lipomas are a group of benign lipogenic soft tissue tumors.
  • Typically they occur in posterior back and shoulder of elderly male patients.
  • Differential diagnosis of this tumor became more important because the number of reports about some other tumors of similar morphology such as mammary type myofibroblastoma and solitary fibrous tumor, are increasing.
  • We think that spindle cell lipomas are desmin negative tumors and this feature helps us to differentiate them especially from mammary type myofibroblastomas of extramammarian soft tissue.
