  • AIMS: Low-grade myofibroblastic sarcoma (LGMS) represents a rare soft tissue neoplasm with a predilection for the head and neck.
  • Genomic DNA was isolated from microdissected formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tumour tissue and examined for KIT and PDGFRA mutations by PCR and direct sequencing of KIT and PDGFRA.
  • The tumour cells strongly expressed vimentin, variably alpha-smooth muscle actin and fibronectin, but were negative for CD117, S-100, desmin, h-caldesmon, beta-catenin, ALK-1, MDM2, PDGFRalpha and PDGFRbeta.
  • One tumour showed a weak expression of CD34.
  • LGMS may mimic a variety of benign and low-grade malignant neoplasms and might be under-recognised.

  • It is vital that such a diagnosis be considered when a discrete, ossified mass is localised in soft tissues, even at atypical sites.
  • Differential diagnoses include myositis ossificans, a lipomatous lesion, a pseudomalignant osseous tumour, an ossifying fibromyxoid tumour, an extraskeletal chondroma with endochondral ossification, synovial (osteo) chondromatosis, tumoural calcinosis, a synovial sarcoma, and an extraskeletal osteosarcoma.
  • Clinical awareness of this benign entity is important as no malignant transformation or metastasis has been reported.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [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 Lyve-1+/podoplanin+ lymphatics were not identified in sarcomas apart from all cases of epithelioid sarcoma (a tumour which is known to metastasise to lymph nodes) and a few cases of leiomyosarcoma, rhabdomyosarcoma and synovial sarcoma.
  • 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.

  • Granular cell tumour (GCT) is a rare soft tissue neoplasm commonly encountered in the head and neck region, skin and subcutaneous tissue.
  • The neoplasm constitutes less than 10% of all benign tumours of the extra-hepatic biliary tree.
  • We report a case of benign GCT involving the ampullary region in a 44-year-old Ethiopian male.
  • The patient was managed by debulking resection and biliary-enteric bypass and is symptom-free with no evidence of tumour progression after a follow-up of one year.

  • [Title] Solitary fibrous tumour of the soft tissue of the face: a case report.
  • INTRODUCTION: Solitary fibrous tumour (SFT) is a rare mesenchymal neoplasm described first in the pleura.
  • Recently, SFTs have been found in various extra-serosal locations, including the head and neck region.
  • Preoperative cytological examination by fine needle aspiration biopsy diagnosed a mesenchymal tumour.
  • Usually, SFT is a benign tumour, although malignant variants exist.
  • The recent increase in reports of extrapleural SFT indicates that this rare tumour should be included in the differential diagnosis of soft tissue head and neck tumours.

  • [Title] A peripheral nerve sheath tumour as a cause of nasal obstruction.
  • Neurogenic tumours form a very small percentage of all neoplastic lesions of the head and neck region.
  • However, the head and neck region is by far the most common location for benign peripheral nerve tumours.
  • This case also highlights the importance of considering this clinical entity in the differential diagnosis when encountering a unilateral soft tissue mass in the nasal cavity.

  • INTRODUCTION: Pleomorphic adenomas are the most common benign tumour of the major salivary glands.
  • In addition, they may also occur in the minor salivary glands of the hard and soft palate.
  • Radiological examination demonstrated well pneumatised paranasal sinuses and a soft tissue mass in the anterior aspect of the left nasal cavity.
  • In view of the potential for tumour recurrence, long-term follow-up and careful examination of the nose with an endoscope are necessary.

  • The tumour presented as an expansive, unilocular, well defined, radiolucent lesion on orthopantomography.
  • Computerized tomography scans of the mandible helped to identify the solid nature of the tumour.
  • A biopsy was necessary to make the final diagnosis and the tumour was then excised surgically.

  • [Title] Primary malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumour in the temporalis muscle.
  • INTRODUCTION: Primary malignant neoplasms of nerve sheath origin are rare, highly aggressive tumours that account for no more than 5% of all soft tissue sarcomas.
  • In the head and neck where the great majority of peripheral nerve neoplasms are benign, as in the rest of the body, malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumours (MPNSTs) are unusual lesions.
  • DISCUSSION: The clinicopathologic properties of this neoplasm have been widely discussed and the emphasis is on the need for its early identification since the tumour's non-specific symptoms may result in delayed diagnosis and treatment.
  • The rarity of the tumour along with its clinical appearance and the vague symptoms may result in delayed referral and thus the tumour being quite large when diagnosed.

  • In soft-tissue surgery it is advisable to apply a contrast agent in order to achieve good soft-tissue contrast, thus allowing the tumour to be adequately distinguished from benign tissue.
  • OBJECTIVE: CT is a well-established imaging method for the assessment of osseous and soft-tissue structures in the head and neck region.
  • To investigate the indications for intraoperative CT, we used it in various surgical procedures in the head and neck region.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: Intraoperative CT was applied using the Tomoscan M in 46 cases in order to demonstrate the surgical benefit of the following procedures: endonasal surgical procedures on the paranasal sinuses (maxillary and ethmoidal sinusitis, anterior fracture of the sphenoidal sinus); tumour removal by means of laser surgery (carcinomas of the hypopharynx and larynx); and cochlear implantation (to verify the electrode position).
  • If necessary, the gantry could be moved over the patient's head without repositioning the patient.
  • In soft-tissue procedures, such as tumour removal by means of laser surgery, it proved possible to visualize the resection borders of malignant tumours.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Pleomorphic malignant fibrous histiocytomas (undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcomas) belong to the soft tissue tumours and are more likely in elder patients.
  • About 3 % percent of all pleomorphic malignant fibrous histiocytomas arise in the head and neck region.
  • PATIENT: A 91 year old female patient presented because of a prominent tumour in the upper right periorbital region.
  • As stated in the case history, the tumour had developed within the previous 6 months.
  • The tumour measured about 3 x 4 cm.
  • Due to the mass of the tumour a ptosis was present.
  • CLINIC: Neither CT nor MRI could give a clue to the tumour entity.
  • A biopsy was classified as a malignant fibrous tumour with the subclassification of an atypical fibroxanthoma.
  • The final histopathological classification after total excision of the tumour showed perineural growth and angioinvasion.
  • Therefore the tumour classification was changed to pleomorphic malignant fibrous histiocytoma (undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma).
  • Immunohistochemical stainings (Vimentin) were carried out to characterise the tumour.
  • In the process of finding the right diagnosis sometimes a change from benign to malignant occurs and alters the treatment regime.
