  • [Title] Incipient chordoma: a report of two cases of early-stage chordoma arising from benign notochordal cell tumors.
  • Chordomas are rare malignant bone tumors primarily involving both ends of the axial skeleton that present as destructive bone lesions with a large soft tissue mass.
  • However, recent studies suggest the possibility that chordomas arise from benign notochordal cell tumors.
  • The intraosseous lesions consisted of both benign notochordal cell tumor and incipient chordoma.
  • In addition, two other small benign notochordal cell tumors were found at a different level in case 1.
  • It is conceivable that pre-existing intraosseous benign notochordal cell tumors transform into incipient chordoma and then extend through the cortex into the surrounding soft tissue.

  • Correct histopathologic diagnosis is essential for adequate treatment of soft tissue sarcomas.
  • Due to the disorder's rarity, multitude of subgroups, sometimes varying histopathologic appearance, and occasionally inadequate biopsy specimens, diagnosis and grading are challenging.
  • The records of 603 patients with soft tissue tumors of the extremities were reviewed concerning mismatches in primary and definite diagnoses relating to entity, evaluation of primary or recurrent tumor specimens, and the diagnosing pathology institution.
  • For optimal treatment of soft tissue sarcomas, we suggest obtaining expert second opinion to ensure adequate surgical therapy and precise indications for radiation and chemotherapy.

  • Although osteoclast giant-cell-like proliferations have been reported in a diverse range of human malignancies, to the best of our knowledge, they have never been described in cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (SCC).
  • Histologically, osteoclastic giant cell tumors within extraosseous malignancy resemble their bony and soft tissue counterparts, with round to spindle-shaped cells admixed with osteoclast-like multinucleate cells.
  • These cells should be distinguished from sarcomatoid differentiation within a carcinoma; they have a benign morphology with a low nuclear to cytoplasmic ratio, minimal pleomorphism/mitoses and negative immunohistochemistry for cytokeratin.

  • [Title] Osteolipoma independent of bone tissue: a case report.
  • INTRODUCTION: Lipomas are the most common benign soft tissue tumors and appear in any part of the body.
  • They typically consist of mature adipose tissue.
  • Osteolipoma is an extremely rare histologic variant of lipoma that contains mature lamellar bone within the tumor and osteolipoma independent of bone tissue are very rare.
  • We report a case of histologically confirmed osteolipoma independent of bone located in the thigh.
  • Given the benign imaging characteristics and fine needle aspiration, an excisional biopsy was undertaken.
  • CONCLUSION: Although ossifying lipomas are very rare, it is important to keep them in mind when a lesion with adipose tissue in combination with ossification is encountered.

  • [Title] Core-needle biopsy performed by the cytopathologist: a technique to complement fine-needle aspiration of soft tissue and bone lesions.
  • The main limitation of FNAC of soft tissue and bone neoplasms is in the evaluation of tissue architecture.
  • METHODS: A consecutive series of 130 patients with soft tissue and bone lesions was examined by core-needle biopsy (CNB) performed by a cytopathologist in conjunction with FNAC.
  • RESULTS: FNAC combined with CNB correctly could identify 77 of 78 malignant lesions and 50 of 52 benign lesions.
  • The tumor subtype was determined correctly in 30 of 39 patients (77%) and the malignancy grade was determined in 35 of 39 patients (90%) with primary soft tissue and bone sarcomas compared with the biopsy or operative specimens.
  • CONCLUSIONS: FNAC of musculoskeletal tumors/lesions complemented with CNB combined cytomorphology with tissue architecture and ancillary procedures.

  • Meningiomas are usually benign neoplasms in which extracranial metastases occur very rarely.
  • A computed tomography (CT) scan and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed an intraventricular tumor.
  • We performed a total mass removal, and the histopathologic findings were consistent with benign meningioma.
  • Six months later, CT and MRI revealed metastases to multiple vertebrae, lung, ribs and perirenal soft tissue so a decompressive laminectomy with mass removal was performed.
  • Finally, an evaluation of the chest, abdomen and bone is necessary, especially when related symptoms or signs develop.

  • INTRODUCTION: Chondromas are uncommon benign tumors of cartilaginous origin.
  • A chondroma is a painless, slow growing tumor causing destruction and exfoliation of teeth.
  • On a radiograph, the tumor appears as a cyst-like radiolucent lesion, while some are sclerotic.
  • MRI showed a large soft tissue mass of the skull base and maxilla.
  • DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: Chondromyxoid fibroma (CMF) is a rare, benign cartilaginous tumor that often occurs in the metaphyses of proximal tibia, proximal and distal femur and small bones of the foot.
  • The differential diagnosis is wide and includes simple or aneyrismal bone cyst, giant cell tumor, nonossifying fibroma, fibrous dysplasia, enchondroma, chondroblastoma, eosinophilic granuloma and fibrous cortical defect.
  • In the diagnosis of an intracranial chondrocytic tumor, it is important to distinguish it from enchondroma and chondrosarcoma.
  • MR provides a detailed assessment of soft tissue masses of the craniofacial region, while CT offers superior analysis of bone structure involvement.
  • The present case underlines the importance of MR examination in the diagnosis of soft tissue masses in the craniofacial region.

  • [Title] Reconstruction of intraosseous hemangiomas of the midface using split calvarial bone grafts.
  • BACKGROUND: Intraosseous hemangiomas are benign lesions that usually occur in the vertebral column and the calvaria.
  • They are rare in the midface, with only 22 zygomatic and 26 nasal bone hemangioma cases described in the literature.
  • METHODS: The authors report long-term follow-up in three cases of midface intraosseous hemangiomas all treated in a similar fashion: surgical excision of the tumor with a small margin of normal bone and primary reconstruction using split calvarial bone grafts.
  • To the authors' knowledge, this represents the longest follow-up of a patient series with hemangiomas of bone treated with primary reconstruction in the plastic surgery literature (Wolfe and Berkowitz did report on a single case with 4-year follow-up without recurrence).
  • Primary bone grafting with autogenous cranial bone was used to replace areas where original bone was thin, but full-thickness bone was used in areas where original bone was thick.
  • Full-thickness cranial bone grafts may be superior to split cranial bone with regard to long-term volume maintenance.
  • Proper diagnosis should lead to appropriate treatment, which includes total excision and primary bone grafting of the defect to prevent soft-tissue contraction.

  • [Title] Aggressive pregnancy tumor mimicking a malignant neoplasm: a case report.
  • AIM: The aim of this report is to present the management of an aggressive, highly proliferative pregnancy tumor with clinical and radiographic characteristics highly suggestive of a malignant neoplasm.
  • BACKGROUND: Pregnancy tumor is a benign hyperplastic gingival lesion occurring during pregnancy that is indistinguishable from a pyogenic granuloma arising in nonpregnant females, or in males.
  • Advanced alveolar bone loss also was found beneath the lesion.
  • A malignant process was suspected, and an incisional biopsy revealed a pregnancy tumor.
  • SUMMARY: Pregnancy tumor represents an important differential diagnosis of oral masses and can behave in a very aggressive fashion, mimicking a malignant tumor.
  • CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE: This lesion should always be included in the differential diagnosis of soft tissue masses in a pregnant woman even if the lesion is clinically very aggressive.

  • [Title] [Scintigraphic detection of osteoblast activity after implantation of BAS-0 bioactive glass-ceramic material into long bone defects].
  • PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The aim of the study was to demonstrate, by three-phase bone scintigraphy, radionuclide uptake at the site of defects in long bones filled with the non-resorbable bioactive glass-ceramic material BAS-0 at a long follow-up.
  • MATERIAL: Twenty patients, 14 men and 6 women, operated on between 1990 and 2000 for benign bone tumors or tumor-like lesions localized in the femur, tibia or humerus were comprised in the study.
  • The diagnoses based on histological examination included juvenile bone cysts in 11, aneurysmal bone cyst in five, non-ossifying fibroma in two, and fibrous dysplasia in two patients.
  • Three-phase bone scans were made and the healthy and the affected limbs in each patient were compared by means of an index.
  • No inflammatory changes in soft tissues were found.
  • On three-phase bone scans, radionuclide distribution on the flow phase and soft tissue phase was symmetrical in both limbs of all patients.
  • DISCUSSION: The tissue during incorporation of a non-resorbable synthetic material is influenced by stress-shielding.
  • This changes local mechanical signals, which has a negative effect on the adjacent bone tissue.
  • Stress accumulating at the interface of a rigid implant and bone tissue may result in pain, and is detected by scintigraphy as an increased nucleotide uptake, particularly in diaphyseal grafts.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • 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.

  • [Title] Intratumoural lymphatics in benign and malignant soft tissue tumours.
  • Soft tissue sarcomas do not generally metastasise via lymphatics, and the presence or absence of lymphatic vessels within sarcomas and benign soft tissue tumours is not known.
  • In this study, we determined whether lymphatic vessels were present in a wide range of benign and malignant soft tissue lesions by examining intratumoural expression of the lymphatic endothelial cell markers, Lyve-1 and podoplanin.
  • Intratumoural lymphatics were also absent in most benign soft tissue tumours.
  • Reparative and inflammatory soft tissue lesions contained lymphatics, as did all (pseudosarcomatous) proliferative myofibroblastic lesions including nodular, proliferative and ischaemic fasciitis, elastofibroma, nuchal fibroma and deep fibromatosis.
  • Our results show that most soft tissue sarcomas do not contain intratumoural lymphatics, a finding which is consistent with the infrequent finding of sarcoma metastasis to lymph nodes.
  • In contrast to fibrosarcoma and a number of other malignant spindle cell tumours, proliferative fibroblastic/myofibroblastic lesions of soft tissue contain intralesional lymphatic vessels.

  • We also asked whether an image-guided needle biopsy of bone and soft tissue lesions is an accurate and clinically useful tool.
  • Bone lesions had a higher ND rate than soft tissue lesions (13% vs. 4%).
  • Malignant tumors had a higher IC rate than benign tumors (5% vs. 0%); fibromyxoid sarcoma and rare subtypes of osteosarcoma had higher IC rates than other diagnoses.
  • Bone lesions were more likely than soft tissue lesions to require repeat biopsies (18% vs. 9%).
  • We believe these biopsies appropriate in selected circumstances but a key factor for appropriate use is an experienced musculoskeletal tumor team with frequent communication to correlate clinical, radiographic, and histologic information for each patient.

  • A wide variety of benign and malignant neoplasms in children involve the lumbosacral region.
  • When a solitary lesion of the lower spine occurs, tumors or tumor-like lesions represent an important group of entities for diagnostic consideration.
  • Roentgenograms, which demonstrate bone deviations, should be used as an initial examination.
  • The results should direct further imaging studies, such as computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and bone scintigraphy.
  • MRI shows soft-tissue masses and medullary infiltration better than any other radiological modality.
  • Although imaging features, especially of benign lesions, may yield a high percentage of accurate diagnoses, in cases with radiological findings highly suggestive of malignancy, a specific diagnosis cannot always be made, and histopathological findings are essential to achieve the diagnosis that will guide the therapy.

  • BACKGROUND: A giant cell tumor (GCT) of bone is a locally aggressive tumor with a propensity for local recurrence.
  • A characteristic pattern of peripheral bone formation has been described in GCT recurrence in soft tissue, and in some pulmonary metastases from benign GCT.
  • Although the bone formation in GCT in supposedly due to bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs), the expression pattern of BMPs in GCT has not been well investigated.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: The expression of BMPs in GCT tissues, cultured stromal cells from GCT, and osteoclast-like giant cells harvested by laser microdissection (LM), as well as from control osteosarcoma (NOS-1) cells was analyzed using reverse transcriptional-semiquantitative PCR.
  • RESULTS: BMP 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 were expressed in the GCT tissue.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Whole-body imaging of bone marrow.
  • For bone marrow screening, multimodality algorithms including conventional radiographs, bone scintigraphy, multislice computed tomography CT (MS-CT) scan, and dedicated magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are widely established in clinical routine.
  • Although radiographs are used as a basic imaging procedure for clarification of suspected focal bone pathologies, low sensitivity has been reported for the detection of limited osteolytic bone marrow destruction.
  • Therefore, skeletal scintigraphy often is used as a more sensitive and integrated method in patients with suspected malignant bone marrow disease.
  • MS-CT scan is the method of choice in the assessment of bone stability and allows for evaluation of fracture risk.
  • Hybrid imaging concepts, such as positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT) scan, have been established as an effective tool for the detection of skeletal metastases, using the additional metabolic information of a PET scan for the assessment of tumor viability and therapy response.
  • MRI is an imaging technique that allows direct visualization of bone marrow components with high spatial resolution.
  • The unique soft-tissue contrast of MRI enables precise assessment of bone marrow infiltration before osteolytic changes become visible in MS-CT or metabolic changes occur in bone scintigraphy or a PET scan.
  • Furthermore it can depict tumor expansion into adjacent paraosseous structures, such as the spinal canal.
  • The development of multichannel whole-body MRI (WB-MRI) systems has enabled bone marrow screening without use of ionizing radiation at high diagnostic accuracy.
  • WB-MRI has successfully been applied for screening of bone metastases and hematologic bone marrow diseases, like multiple myeloma, lymphoma, and histiocytosis X.
  • Furthermore, it has recently been proposed for the assessment of primarily benign bone diseases predisposing for malignancy (e.g., multiple cartilaginous exostoses).
  • This article provides an overview of state-of-art whole-body imaging of the bone marrow and highlights present and potential future applications, especially in the field of WB-MRI.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Altered expression of cell cycle regulatory proteins in benign and malignant bone and soft tissue neoplasms.
  • BACKGROUND: The binding of cyclins to cyclin-dependent kinases regulates cell proliferation.
  • Overexpression of cyclins is believed to deregulate the cell cycle in human tumors.
  • Here the expression of G1 cyclins D1 and D3, and of Ki-67 in a variety of bone and soft tissue sarcomas was assessed as compared to adjacent normal tissue and to a subset of leiomyomas.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-nine human bone and soft tissue sarcomas were evaluated.
  • Tissue sections from each case were subjected to immunostaining for cyclin D1, cyclin D3 and Ki-67 using the avidin-biotin complex method.
  • The normal soft tissue adjacent to the tumors when present (10 cases) was negative for cyclin D1 and D3, and expressed Ki-67 in 5% of the cell nuclei.
  • The expression of cyclin D3 was also noted in human sarcoma cell lines (SKLMS, MG63, SaOS-2 and HT1080) by Western blot.
  • CONCLUSION: The higher expression of cyclin D1 and D3 and of Ki-67 in bone and soft tissue sarcomas, as compared to leiomyomas and peritumoral normal soft tissue, suggests that high cyclin expression may contribute to deregulation of the cell cycle in bone and soft tissue tumors.

  • [Title] [Benign and malignant lesions in the region of the inner ear and cerebellopontine angle].
  • Tumorous lesions in the region of the inner ear and cerebellopontine angle are very rare and can be classified into benign and malignant disease forms.
  • This contribution presents and explains the CT and MRI characteristics of these tumors.High-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) in the axial projection is applied for evaluation in the high-resolution bone window.
  • The coronary slices can be reconstructed from the axial datasets or in individual cases examined in the coronary plane.HRCT excellently demonstrates osseous lesions and in individual cases - e.g., exostoses - it can simply suffice to perform HRCT of the temporal bone, while HRCT is also excellent for detecting osseous lesions to determine whether the tumor is benign or malignant.MRI, on the other hand, excellently shows the extent of tumor spread because of its superb soft tissue contrast.

  • [Title] Mandibular aneurysmal bone cyst in a child misdiagnosed as acute osteomyelitis: a case report and a review of the literature.
  • The aneurysmal bone cyst is a very infrequent, benign bone lesion in children which rarely can be found at the craniofacial skeleton.
  • The cause of misleading diagnosis is often owing to the rapid growth of the lesion, sometimes associated with painful soft tissue swelling indicating an infectious origin or a malignant tumor.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging revealed the classic characteristics of aneurysmal bone cyst with severe destruction of the mandible.
  • Therefore, curative tumor embolization and complete surgical excision was successfully performed.
  • The aneurysmal bone cyst is a curable condition by radical excision, although relapse may occur when only incomplete excision is obtained.
  • Therefore, aneurysmal bone cyst should be considered early when children present with unusual, rapid-growing neoformations of the extremities or the facial region.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Seventy-one patients without cancer who had pain in the extremities underwent three-phase bone scintigraphy and SPECT/CT of either the upper (n = 20) or the lower (n = 51) extremities.
  • The findings were classified into the following diagnostic categories: normal, trauma, tumor, osteomyelitis, and osteoarthritis.
  • RESULTS: Four patients had no abnormal bone metabolism or CT abnormality in the extremities.
  • Among 34 lesions classified as osteoarthritis on planar and SPECT images, seven were reclassified as fracture and one as benign tumor at SPECT/CT.
  • Of 15 lesions initially classified as osteomyelitis, four were diagnosed as osteoarthritis, four as fracture, and one as inflammation of the soft tissue only.
  • CONCLUSION: Compared with bone scintigraphy and SPECT, the use of SPECT/CT increases diagnostic accuracy in the evaluation of orthopedic disorders affecting the extremities.

  • [Title] [Diagnostic value of 2-dimentional ultrasonography and color Doppler flow imaging in primary bone tumor].
  • OBJECTIVE: To explore the diagnostic value of 2-dimentional ultrasonography and color Doppler flow imaging (CDFI) in primary bone tumor.
  • METHODS: The hemodynamic parameters such as systolic maximum velocity (Vmax), diastolic minimum velocity (Vmin), resistance index (RI), and pulsatility index (PI) of intratumoral folw in 93 patients with primary bone tumors proved by histopathology were studied using 2-dimentional ultrasonography and CDFI techniques.
  • RESULTS: The bone destruction periosteum response and soft tissue mass were essentially revealed with 2-dimentional ultrasonography techniques.
  • The Vmax and Vmin in malignant bone tumor were significantly higher than those in benign one (P < 0.01).
  • RI and PI in malignant bone tumor were lower than those in benign one (P < 0.01).
  • CONCLUSION: Observing the features of bone tumor and hemodynamic parameters by 2-dimentional ultrasonography and CDFI has a great clinical value in diagnosing primary bone tumor and distinguishing the malignant and benign bone tumors.

  • [Title] Gene expression profiling identifies p63 as a diagnostic marker for giant cell tumor of the bone.
  • Giant cell tumor of the bone (GCTOB) is a primary bone tumor that occurs mainly in young adults and is capable of locally aggressive growth.
  • Its histologic appearance can resemble a number of benign and malignant tumors but no useful diagnostic marker is known currently.
  • To identify diagnostic markers for this tumor, global gene expression profiling using cDNA microarray was performed on 6 fresh-frozen GCTOB, 3 aneurysmal bone cysts, 4 fibrous dysplasias and 12 giant cell tumors of tendon sheath/diffuse-type giant cell tumors.
  • The diagnostic utility of p63 was subsequently confirmed using anti-p63 antibody on a series of 26 GCTOB, 25 aneurysmal bone cysts, 15 chondroblastomas, 13 giant cell reparative granulomas, 13 chondromyxoid fibromas, 4 brown tumors, 4 fibrous dysplasias, 53 giant cell tumors of tendon sheath/diffuse-type giant cell tumors and 385 additional mesenchymal tumors in tissue microarrays.
  • Strong p63 nuclear staining was present in 18 of 26 (69%) GCTOB, 3 of 15 (20%) chondroblastomas and in 1 of 25 (4%) aneurysmal bone cysts while none of the other tumors commonly considered in the differential diagnosis of GCTOB showed any detectable p63 staining.
  • Strong p63 staining is rare in bone and soft-tissue tumors in general.

  • [Title] Impact severity of local recurrence in giant cell tumor of bone.
  • We retrospectively reviewed 183 consecutive patients diagnosed with giant cell tumor at the three most common sites (distal femur, proximal tibia, and distal radius) to determine the pattern of local tumor recurrence and the impact severity of the recurrence on adjacent joint function.
  • The primary tumor was treated in all patients with intralesional excision of tumor by curettage.
  • The intrainstitutional recurrences were salvaged by a repeat curettage (n = 12) or en bloc osteoarticular resection (n = 10) for bone recurrences and wide local excision for soft tissue recurrence (n = 1).
  • The prereferral recurrences were salvaged by a repeat curettage (n = 7) and en bloc osteoarticular resection (n = 15) for bone recurrences.
  • Incomplete initial surgery, a delay in diagnosis of the recurrence of greater than 6 months, and subchondral recurrence of tumor were contributing factors in the failure to salvage the joint.
  • Despite its benign histology, giant cell tumor of bone is an aggressive tumor that demands meticulous attention to surgical detail and close postoperative surveillance for successful local tumor control and durable, joint-preserving function.

  • [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] GLUT-1 expression in mesenchymal tumors: an immunohistochemical study of 247 soft tissue and bone neoplasms.
  • However, GLUT-1 expression has not been systematically examined in other mesenchymal neoplasms.
  • Prompted by a recent report of GLUT-1 expression in epithelioid sarcoma, a tumor not generally felt to show perineurial differentiation, we examined GLUT-1 expression in a wide variety of mesenchymal tumors.
  • Sections from 247 mesenchymal tumors of a variety of histologic subtypes were retrieved from our archives and immunostained for GLUT-1 using heat-induced epitope retrieval and the DAKO ADVANCE detection system (DAKO, Carpinteria, CA).
  • All benign nerve sheath tumors showed a peripheral rim of positive normal perineurial cells, with 2 neurofibromas and 3 schwannomas showing more extensive staining.
  • GLUT-1 expression was also seen in a wide variety of benign and malignant mesenchymal tumors.
  • We conclude that GLUT-1 expression in mesenchymal tumors is by no means specific for perineurial differentiation, but may instead represent upregulation of this protein within hypoxic zones, secondary to upstream activation of proteins such as hypoxia-inducible factor 1-alpha.

  • [Title] Function and health status outcomes following soft tissue reconstruction for limb preservation in extremity soft tissue sarcoma.
  • 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.
  • Patients receiving flaps had larger (9.8 versus 7.1 cm; P = 0.003), higher-grade (93% versus 72%; P = 0.001) tumors, and more frequently received radiotherapy (89% versus 72%; P = 0.007), and bone (20% versus 4%; P = 0.001) and motor nerve resection (21% versus 10%; P = 0.032).
  • 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.

  • [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] Ossifying fibromyxoid tumor of soft parts--a clinicopathologic and immunohistochemical study of 104 cases with long-term follow-up and a critical review of the literature.
  • Ossifying fibromyxoid tumor (OFT) is a unique soft tissue tumor of uncertain histogenesis.
  • The majority of reported cases (approximately 220) have pursued a benign clinical course.
  • However, recent literature has emphasized the existence of morphologically atypical and clinically malignant examples of this tumor and proposed guidelines for assessment of biologic potential.
  • Herein, OFT was strictly defined as a tumor with lobular architecture, predominantly epithelioid cell morphology, a low level of atypia, corded and trabecular growth patterns, moderate amounts of myxocollagenous matrix, and often, focal peripheral metaplastic bone formation.
  • The tumor size ranged from 0.7 to 17 cm (median, 3 cm).
  • Tumor cell nuclei typically contained small, distinct nucleoli, and necrosis was infrequent (11/104).
  • A mitotic rate of >2 mitotic figures/50 HPFs was a risk factor for local recurrence, but necrosis, tumor size, the presence of satellite nodules, and positive margins were not.

  • Benign bone tumors commonly appear as well-circumscribed, slow-growing lesions with a calcified or sclerotic matrix.
  • Malignancy is often aggressive permeative lesions with bone destruction, cortical invasion and associated soft-tissue mass.
  • CT is an excellent imaging modality for characterization of the tumor matrix, exact location, extension and osseous changes, while MR imaging is superior for evaluation of the associated soft-tissue mass, bone marrow infiltration and intraspinal extension.
  • The imaging appearance of primary spinal bone tumor in conjunction with the patient's age, gender and lesion location allows a high percentage of correct diagnosis.
  • Imaging plays an important role in diagnosis, characterization and extension of bone tumors of the spine which will help guide therapy.

  • The least common presentation of an amyloid deposition is as a discrete mass called amyloidoma or amyloid tumor.
  • Although described at various body sites, soft-tissue amyloidoma in an extremity is exceedingly rare.
  • We report such a case of a large amyloidoma in the thigh, which simulated a soft-tissue sarcoma.
  • In spite of attaining a very large size over a course of more than 20 years, the clinical course and the histology of this lesion were benign.
  • A review of literature on soft-tissue amyloidomas of extremities is also being presented.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Chondromyxoid fibroma is a rare benign bony tumor classically occurring in the metaphyseal region of the long bones surrounding the knee, but also found with relative frequency in other long bones, the pelvis, ribs, and small foot bones.
  • The tumor is considered a physeal plate remnant and may involve the epiphysis, diaphysis, or both along with its metaphyseal origin.
  • Prominent soft tissue swelling and limited range of motion were noted, corresponding to magnetic resonance imaging findings of lytic changes in the right ring finger metacarpal and proximal phalanx, surrounded by an irregularly enhancing mass with soft tissue extension.
  • The patient is >15 months out from synovectomy, intralesional curettage, and placement of demineralized bone matrix and allograft cancellous chips, and is without signs of recurrence.
  • This benign, curable lesion should be included in the differential diagnosis of a bony lesion, even when a joint and adjacent bones are involved.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Osteoarticular reconstructive surgery in malignant bone tumors: the importance of external fixators.
  • The patients with malignant bone tumors (table 1.) were studied by sex, tumor type, location, age at the moment of diagnosis, age at the moment of the last evaluation, type of surgery, external fixator implanted, complications, results and survival period.
  • We also considered for each patient the extent of the tumor to diaphysis, soft tissue involvement, involvement of physis and epiphyseal invasion, articular extent, vessels and nerves invasion, presence of metastases and local skin invasion.
  • The development of reconstructive bone surgery is sustained by the possibility to delineate the tumor by diagnosis based on imaging and by the possibility to use modern preoperative and postoperative chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
  • Limb conservation was possible only in aggressive benign tumors up to 1970.
  • Since then the same treatment was preferred also in malignant bone tumors, because the relapse appeared as frequent as in cases with amputation but the physical and psychological comfort made the patients to accept it readily.
  • The goal of malignant bone tumors treatment is to save the life of the patient, to preserve the affected limb, to maintain the length and function of the limb.
  • Oncologic surgery consists of "en bloc" tumor resection followed by bone reconstruction or modular prosthetic replacement.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The description of the course of the tumors differs somewhat, but it is generally considered as a benign lesion.
  • METHODS: Tumor specimens of each patient were sectioned and stained with hematoxylin-eosin, Fontana-Masson, Prussian blue, and periodic acid-Schiff (PAS).
  • The tumor sites included the spinal nerve root (5 patients), cranial nerve (1), greater omentum (1), subcutaneous tissue (3), mesentery (1), bone (1) and mediastinum (1).
  • One patient (9.1%) with a primary tumor in the greater omentum developed another primary tumor of the same type in the subcutaneous tissue of the abdominal wall after the first operation.
  • Local recurrence of the tumor was seen in 2 patients (18.2%).
  • The tumor was composed of spindled and epithelioid cells with abundant intracytoplasmic melanin pigments.
  • Ultrastructurally, numerous elongated tumor-cell processes, duplicated basement membrane and melanosomes were observed in all developmental stages.
  • Distinguishing between this tumor and malignant melanoma is of paramount importance in planning of management.

  • [Title] Lymphatics and bone.
  • There is controversy regarding whether lymphatic vessels are present or absent in bone.
  • Although lymphangiomas have been described in bone, lymphatic vessels have not been identified morphologically with certainty in any other benign or malignant bone tumors or in normal human bone.
  • In this study, we determined by immunohistochemistry, using 2 specific lymphatic endothelial cell markers, LYVE-1 and podoplanin, whether lymphatics are present in normal bone and a wide range of primary and secondary bone neoplasms.
  • In normal bone, LYVE-1+/podoplanin+ lymphatic vessels were not identified in cortical or cancellous bone but were seen in connective tissue overlying the periosteum.
  • With the exception of lymphangioma, Gorham-Stout disease, and hemangioendothelioma, primary benign and malignant bone tumors (as well as secondary carcinomas) that were confined to bone did not contain lymphatic vessels.
  • Primary and secondary bone tumors that had extended through the bone cortex contained LYVE-1+/podoplanin+ lymphatic vessels that seemed to extend for a short distance from surrounding soft tissues into the tumor.
  • Three cases of osteosarcoma that had extended through the bone cortex and had lymph node metastases were all found to contain lymphatic vessels within the tumor.
  • These results indicate that the lymphatic circulation is unlikely to play a role in bone fluid transport in normal bone and that lymphatic vessels are absent from most primary and secondary tumors confined to bone.
  • These findings also suggest that lymphangiogenesis is not involved in the disease progression of most primary bone tumors and that carcinomatous metastasis to bone does not occur via lymphatics.

  • OBJECTIVES: Enchondromas are benign cartilaginous tumors, often found incidentally and diagnosed by the radiographic appearance.
  • Very few had the classic signs of an aggressive/growing cartilage tumor.
  • In radiological evaluation, we found scalloping/cortical erosion, lytic areas, cortical breaks, soft tissue extension in only 12 cases of which 8 underwent a biopsy.
  • They are frequently associated with adjacent joint or soft tissue pathologies, which are main source of the symptoms.
  • Even small, well-defined lesions are often confused with a sarcoma or other malignancies, which may be due to the lack of education on bone tumors for both the radiologists and general orthopedists.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Intraosseous lipoma is an uncommon tumor of bone with indistinct radiologic features that makes it diagnostically challenging to radiologists and pathologists.
  • Plain radiographs of the long bones revealed well-circumscribed benign-appearing osteolytic lesions with sclerotic margins, whereas in the skull, a poorly defined lytic aggressive-looking lesion was observed.
  • In the long bones, the lesions showed remodeling of the affected bone with matrix calcification, simulating bone infarcts.
  • Microscopically, mature adipose tissue with fat necrosis, absence of hematopoietic elements, and dystrophic calcification corresponding to the calcified matrix seen on the plain radiographs were seen.
  • The osteolytic skull lesion had large caliber thin-walled vasculature with occasional fibrin thrombi mimicking intramuscular hemangiomas of soft tissue.
  • On plain radiographs, an intraosseous lipoma is usually seen as a rather benign-appearing osteolytic bone lesion with well-defined margins and a heavily calcified/ossified dense matrix.
  • Plain radiographs alone cannot establish the diagnosis of intraosseous lipoma as it mimics several other benign and malignant bone lesions.
  • Intraosseous lipoma often contains calcified necrotic fat with little mature adipose tissue and characteristically induces expansion/remodeling of the affected bone.

  • Risk factors examined included age, weight, sex, tumor site (hindlimb or forelimb), local tumor (T) stage, metastases, tumor type, and treatment modality.
  • Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) accounted for 33 (51.6%) of the tumors.
  • Other diagnoses included malignant melanoma (MM) (n = 10; 15.6%), osteosarcoma (OSA) (n = 4; 6.3%), hemangiopericytoma (n = 3; 4.7%), benign soft tissue tumors (n = 5; 7.8%), and malignant soft tissue tumors (n = 9; 14%).
  • None of the patient variables assessed, including age, sex, tumor type, site, and stage, had a significant impact on ST.
  • On the basis of these findings, early surgical intervention is advised for the treatment of dogs with digital tumors, regardless of tumor type or the presence of metastatic disease.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVES: This study was undertaken to evaluate the reliability of ultrasonography (USG)-guided fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) in distinguishing between benign and malignant lesions in the retroperitoneum, and to correlate the diagnosis by cytology of retroperitoneal masses with the results obtained by histology.
  • RESULTS: Out of 85 cases, 32 were of kidney, 27 of lymph nodes, 24 of retroperitoneal soft tissues, and two were of the adrenals.
  • In the kidney, the maximum number of cases were of renal cell carcinoma (12-38%), followed by Wilm's tumor (6-19%), pyonephrosis (5-16%), renal cyst (4), angiomyolipoma (2), cortical pseudotumor (2), and tuberculosis (1).
  • Among the 24 soft tissue tumors in the study, seven (29%) were malignant and 17 (71%) were benign (lipoma being the most common benign neoplasm).
  • Two cases for which the histopathological results were inconsistent with the FNAC diagnoses, were of renal cell carcinoma, which had been diagnosed as renal cysts on cytology.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Florid reactive periostitis is the term used to describe a benign disease characterized by aggressive periosteal reaction and benign soft-tissue inflammation.
  • Although it is considered rare, there are numerous reports in the literature that refer to this disease with different names such as parosteal fasciitis, fasciitis ossificans, benign fibro-osseous pseudotumor, pseudomalignant osseous tumor of soft tissue, and bizarre parosteal osteochondromatous proliferation.
  • As a result, the nomenclature is confusing, and some authors have placed florid reactive periostitis ossificans into the heterogeneous group of pseudomalignant osseous tumors of soft tissue or proliferative periosteal processes, whereas other authors place this entity in the myositis ossificans group.
  • The patient presented with a painful lesion in the distal ulna, and plain radiographs suggested the presence of a quickly growing periosteal lesion with associated calcification and soft tissue mass.

  • [Title] Histogenesis-specific expression of fibroblast activation protein and dipeptidylpeptidase-IV in human bone and soft tissue tumours.
  • They are involved in tissue remodelling, cancer invasion and metastases, mechanisms that are controversial.
  • The aim was to identify cell types that express FAP and DPP-IV in human bone and soft tissue tumours, and to determine whether there are any correlations between the expression of FAP and DPP-IV and the malignant potential of tumours.
  • METHODS AND RESULTS: This study analysed in situ expression in 25 malignant and 13 benign human bone and soft tissue tumours.
  • Among benign tumours, non-ossifying fibromas, desmoid tumours and chondroblastomas expressed both FAP and DPP-IV.
  • Giant cells expressed DPP-IV in giant cell tumours.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our data suggest that FAP and DPP-IV are consistently expressed in bone and soft tissue tumour cells that are histogenetically related to activated fibroblasts and/or myofibroblasts, irrespective of their malignancy.

  • [Title] Ankle arthrodesis with bone graft after distal tibia resection for bone tumors.
  • BACKGROUND: Treatment of distal tibial tumors is challenging due to the scarce soft tissue coverage of this area.
  • Ankle arthrodesis has proven to be an effective treatment in primary and post-traumatic joint arthritis, but few papers have addressed the feasibility and techniques of ankle arthrodesis in tumor surgery after long bone resections.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Resection of the distal tibia and reconstruction by ankle fusion using non-vascularized structural bone grafts was performed in 8 patients affected by malignant (5 patients) or aggressive benign (3 patients) tumors.
  • Bone defects were reconstructed with cortical structural autografts (from contralateral tibia) or allografts or both, plus autologous bone chips.
  • CONCLUSION: Resection of the distal tibia and arthrodesis of the ankle with non-vascularized structural bone grafts, combined with autologous bone chips, can be an effective procedure in bone tumor surgery with durable and satisfactory functional results.
  • In shorter resections, autologous cortical structural grafts can be used; in longer resections, allograft structural bone grafts are needed.

  • [Title] Resection-reconstruction arthroplasty for giant cell tumor of distal radius.
  • BACKGROUND: Giant cell tumor (GCT) of the distal radius poses problems for reconstruction after resection.
  • Here we have analyzed the results of aggressive benign GCTs of the distal radius treated by resection and reconstruction arthroplasty using autogenous non-vascularized fibular graft.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-four cases of giant cell tumor of the distal radius (mean age 32 years, mean follow-up 6.6 years) treated by en-bloc resection and reconstruction arthroplasty using autogenous non-vascularized ipsilateral fibular graft with a minimum followup of two years have been included in this retrospective study.
  • Routine radiographs and clinical assessments regarding pain, instability, recurrence, hand grip strength and functional status were done at regular intervals and functional results were assessed using (musculoskeletal tumor society) MSTS-87 scoring.
  • Soft tissue recurrence was seen in one patient.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Without proper clinical information, a fine needle aspiration (FNA) diagnosis of metastatic PDC can be challenging as this tumor can morphologically mimic adenocarcinomas from other sites.
  • CASE: An 85-year-old man presented with a large, destructive pelvic bone lesion with soft tissue extension.
  • He had undergone a prostatectomy 30 years earlier for "benign prostatic hypertrophy" but had no known history of malignancy.
  • The aspirates were hypercellular and composed of numerous monolayered or folded cohesive sheets of tumor cells with minimal cytologic atypia.
  • The tumor cells had abundant, clear cytoplasm, evenly spaced nuclei, finely granular chromatin, inconspicuous nucleoli and occasional mitotic figures.
  • Cell block sections revealed tumor cells forming tubulopapillary architecture lined with tall columnar cells with focal nuclear pseudostratification, reminiscent of uterine endometrial carcinoma.
  • Positive immunoreactivity for prostate-specific antigen and prostatic acid phosphatase confirmed the tumor's prostatic origin.
  • CONCLUSION: Because of the rarity and nonspecific cytomorphologic characteristics of this tumor, clinical history, radiologic findings and a high index of suspicion in conjunction with ancillary studies are important in achieving a correct FNA diagnosis of metastatic PDC.

  • [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.
  • 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.
  • OMFRSEF occur in adults in various locations, but with a common propensity to involve bone; there is recurrent potential and morbidity with higher grade lesions.
  • 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] Thallium-201 scintigraphy in bone and soft-tissue tumors: a comparison of dynamic, early and delayed scans.
  • OBJECTIVE: It has been reported that delayed scan of thallium-201 (201Tl) scintigraphy is useful for differentiating malignant tumors from benign lesions and for evaluating treatment response.
  • However, physiological muscle uptake which usually increases in delayed scans, often makes it difficult to evaluate 201Tl uptake and its washout in bone and soft-tissue tumors.
  • The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether the delayed scan is necessary and whether a dynamic scan is useful in the evaluation of bone and soft-tissue tumors.
  • METHODS: We studied 175 cases of bone and soft-tissue tumors (malignant 45, benign 130).
  • RESULTS: When there were no 201Tl uptake in dynamic (n = 67) and early scans (n = 68), no tumor uptake was also appreciated in delayed scans, and all but two cases of negative scans were benign.
  • In 107 lesions, although there were significant differences in T/Ns between malignant and benign lesions both on early scans (2.84 +/- 1.45 vs. 2.05 +/- 1.13, p < 0.05) and delayed scans (2.17 +/- 1.03 vs. 1.58 +/- 0.64, p < 0.05), there was a substantial overlap.
  • The T/Ns decreased in delayed scans (i.e., WR > 0) in 100 of 107 cases due to increase of surrounding muscle uptake, and there was no difference in WR between malignant tumors and benign lesions (0.21 +/- 0.14 vs. 0.19 +/- 0.14).
  • CONCLUSIONS: For evaluating bone and soft-tissue tumors, delayed scan had little clinical usefulness and it may be time consuming.
  • Dynamic scan would be useful for demonstrating the differences between tumor blood flow and 201Tl uptake in tumors.

  • Desmoplastic fibroblastoma is a rare benign tumor usually associated with a favorable outcome.
  • The tumor is characterized by fibroblastic cells that are sparsely distributed in a collagenous and fibromyxoid background.
  • The growth of this tumor is generally indolent, and most tumors are small, subcutaneous lesions.
  • Invasion and destruction of bone are distinctly uncommon features.This article describes an unusual case of desmoplastic fibroblastoma that presented with a massive 23-cm tumor.
  • The tumor was also unique for its infiltration and destruction of the scapula.
  • The aggressive clinical features prompted the original physicians to administer chemotherapy, but the tumor exhibited no response to systemic treatment.
  • The invasiveness of the tumor and its large size are distinctly unusual for desmoplastic fibroblastomas.
  • Following surgical excision, the patient has remained continuously disease free for >5 years, which is in keeping with the intrinsically benign nature of the tumor.

  • Pilomatricoma is an asymptomatic, slowly growing, benign skin tumor that is typically located in the regions of head and neck.
  • We present 1 case of pilomatricoma studied with dynamic magnetic resonance imaging and bone scintigraphy.
  • Our case revealed late enhancement in the dynamic magnetic resonance imaging study that is a common pattern more in a benign soft tissue tumor and caused dramatic uptake in the bone scintigraphy.

  • [Title] Distribution and prognostic significance of human telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT) expression in giant-cell tumor of bone.
  • Giant-cell tumor of bone is considered a benign, locally aggressive and rarely metastasizing neoplasm of bone.
  • However, recent evidence suggests that activity of the telomerase enzyme complex correlates with recurrence in giant-cell tumor, although the subset of cells with telomerase activity in these heterogeneous tumors has not been defined.
  • In the present study, we investigated whether immunostaining for human telomerase reverse transcriptase, a component of the telomerase complex, correlates with outcome in giant-cell tumor and the distribution of telomerase reverse transcriptase staining in these tumors.
  • We analyzed 58 cases of giant-cell tumor for the presence and pattern of telomerase reverse transcriptase immunostaining, presence of soft tissue involvement and the type of initial surgery, and correlated these findings with recurrence-free survival and metastasis-free survival.
  • Furthermore, positive telomerase reverse transcriptase immunohistochemistry correlated with recurrence-free survival (P=0.02), whereas the presence of soft tissue extension (P=0.3) and the type of initial surgery (P=0.2) did not.
  • Only soft-tissue extension significantly correlated with metastasis-free survival (P=0.003).
  • Therefore, telomerase reverse transcriptase expression may predict recurrence in giant-cell tumor insofar as positive immunostaining correlates with shorter recurrence-free survival and may be a useful prognostic marker to stratify patients to more aggressive treatment protocols.

  • [Title] [The value of arthroscopic minimally invasive surgery in diagnosis and treatment of benign bone and joint tumors].
  • OBJECTIVE: To approach the values of arthroscopic minimally invasive surgery (MIS) in diagnosis and treatment of benign bone and joint tumors.
  • METHOD: 20 cases of benign bone and joint tumors were diagnosed and treated by arthroscopic MIS.
  • In the treatments of distal femoral and calcaneal benign tumors, firstly, Kirschner wires were drilled into the pathological regions under the monitor of C-arm; then 6 mm diameter hollow drills were drilled follow the guide Kirschner wires and run-through the opposite side of cortical bone; then the arthroscope was inserted to check-up the pathological regions, then curettes or bite clamps were inserted from the opposite side to clean up tumor tissues; finally, 8 of the 13 were embedded with allograft gelsiccation bone, other 6 were embedded with carbonate hydroxyapatite cement.
  • One case of distal tibia epidermoid cyst were removed under arthroscope and filled with allograft bone.
  • 6 soft connective tissue tumors in knee articular cavities were removed under the monitor of arthroscope.
  • RESULT: According to pathological reports, 6 were yellow pigments tumors in knee articular cavities, 4 were osteoid osteomas of femoral bones, 3 were osteofibrous dysplasias, 2 were nonossifying fibromas, 4 were bone cysts of calcaneuses, one was distal tibia epidermoid cyst.
  • CONCLUSION: It is an accurate, minimally invasive and easy to manipulate technology to treat benign bone and joint tumors with the monitor of arthroscope.

  • [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.

  • BACKGROUND: Elastofibromas are benign soft tissue tumours mostly of the infrascapular region between the thoracic wall, the serratus anterior and the latissimus dorsi muscle with a prevalence of up to 24% in the elderly.
  • The pathogenesis of the lesion is still unclear, but repetitive microtrauma by friction between the scapula and the thoracic wall may cause the reactive hyperproliferation of fibroelastic tissue.
  • The tumor sizes ranged from 3 to 13 cm.
  • The typical macroscopic aspect was characterized as poorly defined fibroelastic soft tissue lesion with a white and yellow cut surface caused by intermingled remnants of fatty tissue.
  • CONCLUSION: In differential diagnosis of soft tissue tumors located at this specific site, elastofibroma should be considered as likely diagnosis.
  • Due to its benign behaviour, the tumor should be resected only in symptomatic patients.

  • BACKGROUND: Desmoplastic fibroma of bone is a rare intraosseous benign but locally aggressive tumor of connective tissue origin.
  • Clinical and radiological examination revealed a tumor-like lesion of the mandible extending into the soft tissues, which on biopsy proved to be a desmoplastic fibroma.
  • TREATMENT: The surgical treatment included peripheral ostectomy of the mandible, via an intraoral approach, for the removal of the lesion and restoration of the bone defect with an iliac bone autograft.
  • Extended surgical removal of the tumor, with wide margins, proved to be the appropriate treatment.

  • [Title] Reappraisal of mesenchymal chondrosarcoma: novel morphologic observations of the hyaline cartilage and endochondral ossification and beta-catenin, Sox9, and osteocalcin immunostaining of 22 cases.
  • Mesenchymal chondrosarcoma, a rare malignant round cell and hyaline cartilage tumor, is most commonly intraosseous but can occur in extraskeletal sites.
  • We intensively observed the morphology and applied Sox9 (master regulator of chondrogenesis), beta-catenin (involved in bone formation, thought to inhibit chondrogenesis in a Sox9-dependent manner), and osteocalcin (a marker for osteoblastic phenotype) to 22 central nervous system and musculoskeletal mesenchymal chondrosarcoma.
  • Cases of mesenchymal chondrosarcoma were retrieved and reviewed from our files.
  • Immunohistochemistry and follow-up were obtained on mesenchymal chondrosarcoma and tumor controls.
  • Twenty-two mesenchymal chondrosarcomas included 5 central nervous system (all female; mean age, 30.2; mean size, 7.8 cm; in frontal lobe [n = 4] and spinal cord [n = 1]) and 17 musculoskeletal (female-male ratio, 11:6; mean age, 31.1; mean size, 6.2 cm; 3 each of humerus and vertebrae; 2 each of pelvis, rib, tibia, neck soft tissue; one each of femur, unspecified bone, and elbow soft tissue).
  • Sixty-seven percent of cases demonstrated cell death and acquired osteoblastic phenotype, cells positive for osteocalcin at the site of endochondral ossification.
  • Small round cells of mesenchymal chondrosarcoma were negative for osteocalcin.
  • SOX9 was positive in both components of 21 of 22 cases of mesenchymal chondrosarcoma. beta-Catenin highlighted rare nuclei at the interface between round cells and hyaline cartilage in 35% cases.
  • Control skull and central nervous system cases were compared, including chondrosarcomas and small cell osteosarcoma, the latter positive for osteocalcin in small cells.
  • Mesenchymal chondrosarcoma demonstrates centrally located hyaline cartilage with a linear progression of chondrocytes from resting to proliferative to hypertrophic, which undergoes endochondral ossification, recapitulating growth plate cartilage and suggesting that this component of mesenchymal chondrosarcoma may be a differentiated (benign or metaplastic) component of a malignant metastasizing tumor.
  • Mesenchymal chondrosarcoma can be separated from small cell osteosarcoma, using Sox 9 for cartilage and osteocalcin for osteoblastic phenotype.
  • Rare nuclear beta-catenin expression at the interface between hyaline cartilage and small round cells potentially implicates the APC/Wnt pathway during endochondral ossification in morphologically benign hyaline cartilage component of mesenchymal chondrosarcoma.

  • [Title] Giant cell tumor of the anterior rib masquerading as a breast mass: a case report and review of current literature.
  • INTRODUCTION: Giant cell tumor (GCT) is an aggressive, but usually benign bone neoplasm most commonly arising in the metaphysis/epiphyses of long bones.
  • While they are categorized as benign tumors, they can be locally aggressive and clinically have metastatic potential.
  • The most common locations of this tumor include the distal femur, proximal tibia, and distal radius.
  • Further evaluation revealed the mass to be an expansile rib lesion with extraosseous soft tissue invasion.
  • CONCLUSION: The histological features of bland mononuclear and multinucleated giant cells along with the lack of any additional mesenchymal elements led to the diagnosis of giant cell tumor.
  • Resection of tumor was performed.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVE: When evaluating superficial soft tissue masses with ultrasonography, it is not always clear whether the mass is cystic or solid.
  • We reviewed sonograms of soft tissue masses, which were interpreted as cystic but confirmed as solid tumors.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: We scanned a database of patients with superficial soft tissue masses from two different institutions.
  • Twenty-three masses were identified, of which initial interpretation on gray scale included cystic tumor which pathology revealed to be solid tumors.
  • RESULTS: Of 23 masses, there were 5 giant cell tumors of the tendon sheath, 4 schwannomas, 3 vascular leiomyomas, 2 benign fibrous histiocytomas, 2 dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, 2 granular cell tumors, 1 dermatofibroma, 1 fibroma of the tendon sheath, 1 fibromatosis, 1 eccrine spiradenoma, and 1 granulation tissue.
  • CONCLUSION: On ultrasonography, solid soft tissue tumors may be confused with cystic masses.

  • [Title] EWSR1-POU5F1 fusion in soft tissue myoepithelial tumors. A molecular analysis of sixty-six cases, including soft tissue, bone, and visceral lesions, showing common involvement of the EWSR1 gene.
  • The diagnosis of myoepithelial (ME) tumors outside salivary glands remains challenging, especially in unusual clinical presentations, such as bone or visceral locations.
  • A few reports have indicated EWSR1 gene rearrangement in soft tissue ME tumors, and, in one case each, the fusion partner was identified as either PBX1 or ZNF444.
  • However, larger studies to investigate whether these genetic abnormalities are recurrent or restricted to tumors in soft tissue locations are lacking.
  • Sixty-six ME tumors mainly from soft tissue (71%), but also from skin, bone, and visceral locations, characterized by classic morphological features and supporting immunoprofile were studied.
  • A EWSR1-POU5F1 fusion was identified in a pediatric soft tissue tumor by 3'Rapid Amplification of cDNA Euds (RACE) and subsequently confirmed in four additional soft tissue tumors in children and young adults.
  • An EWSR1-PBX1 fusion was seen in five cases, whereas EWSR1-ZNF444 and FUS gene rearrangement was noted in one pulmonary tumor each.
  • EWSR1-negative tumors were more often benign, superficially located, and showed ductal differentiation, suggesting the possibility of genetically distinct groups.
  • A subset of soft tissue ME tumors with clear cell morphology harbor an EWSR1-POU5F1 fusion, which can be used as a molecular diagnostic test in difficult cases.
  • These findings do not support a pathogenetic relationship between soft tissue ME tumors and their salivary gland counterparts.

  • Myositis ossificans is a localized, self-limiting, reparative lesion that is composed of reactive hypercellular fibrous tissue and bone.
  • Although it is clearly a benign lesion, its clinical, radiological, and histological appearance may sometimes mimic a malignant tumor.
  • To address this question, we therefore extracted DNA from the respective paraffin-embedded tumor tissues of nine women with a median age of 50 years at diagnosis (range: 20-84 years) and studied the X inactivation pattern by means of methylation-sensitive polymerase chain reaction and primers that target the polymorphic CGG trinucleotide repeat of the FMR1 gene.

  • [Title] Increased (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose uptake in benign, nonphysiologic lesions found on whole-body positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT): accumulated data from four years of experience with PET/CT.
  • The use of (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography ((18)F-FDG-PET) in the field of oncology is rapidly evolving; however, (18)F-FDG is not tumor specific.
  • Aside from physiological uptake (18)F-FDG also may accumulate in benign processes.
  • Through the systematic review of the reports of PET/computed tomography (CT) studies performed in oncologic patients during a 6-month period, we found benign nonphysiological uptake of (18)F-FDG in more than 25% of studies.
  • A total of 73% of benign lesions were inflammatory in nature, with post-traumatic bone and soft-tissue abnormalities (including iatrogenic injury) and benign tumors accounting for the remainder.
  • The differentiation of benign from malignant uptake of (18)F-FDG on PET alone may be particularly challenging as a result of the low anatomical resolution of PET and paucity of anatomical landmarks.
  • We have tabulated our experience with benign entities associated with increased (18)F-FDG uptake on whole-body PET/CT from 12,000 whole-body (18)F-FDG-PET/CT studies performed during a 4-year period.
