  • [Transliterated title] Liposarkom des Samenstrangs--Darstellung eines Falls.
  • Liposarcoma of the spermatic cord is a rare entity.
  • Although most liposarcomas of the spermatic cord are well-differentiated, the propensity for local recurrence is high.
  • Preferential treatment of spermatic cord liposarcoma is radical orchiectomy with high ligation of the cord.
  • Radiation therapy is recommended in addition to surgery in cases with evidence of more aggressive tumour behavior (i.e., high-grade tumour, lymphatic invasion, inadequate margin, or recurrence).
  • A 39-year-old-male presented with a 4-year history of a mass in the left scrotum.
  • Pathological analysis demonstrated a well-differentiated liposarcoma with tumour detection in the surgical margin.
  • Without any postoperative adjuvant therapy in evidence of recurrence or metastasis was noted during the 12-month follow-up period.
  • Paratesticular liposarcomas are most commonly well-differentiated and lipoma-like and have a prolonged clinical course.
  • Radical orchiectomy with wide local excision of the mass is the recommended therapy, while adjuvant radiotherapy may be considered in high-grade tumours and in recurrent liposarcomas.
  • Retroperitoneal lymphadenectomy does not offer any additional therapeutic benefit, and the role of chemotherapy is not well defined.
  • Regardless of initial therapy, the risk of local recurrence always necessitates long-term followup.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Thiazolidinediones, a class of synthetic ligands to the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma, induce terminal adipocyte differentiation of 3T3 F442A cells, and have already been used as alternative therapeutic agents for the treatment of liposarcoma in clinical trials.
  • The biochemical changes occurring in the 3T3 F442A cell line and well-differentiated liposarcoma following induction of adipocyte differentiation with the thiazolidinedione troglitazone were measured using high-resolution magic angle spinning (MAS) nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy.
  • The molar ratio of PTC to PC increased fourfold in differentiated 3T3 F442A cells compared to undifferentiated cells, suggesting a substantial increase in CTP:phosphocholine cytidylyltransferase activity with differentiation.
  • A 2.8-fold increase in the PTC:PC ratio was observed in the lipoma-like well-differentiated liposarcoma of three patients who were treated with troglitazone when compared to liposarcoma from patients not treated with this drug.
  • Thus, this ratio may be an NMR-detectable marker of troglitazone efficacy and response to differentiation therapy for liposarcoma.

  • [Title] ASK1 (MAP3K5) as a potential therapeutic target in malignant fibrous histiocytomas with 12q14-q15 and 6q23 amplifications.
  • This genetic finding, very similar to that in well-differentiated liposarcomas, strongly suggests that these tumors actually correspond to undifferentiated liposarcomas.
  • Treatment of a cell line with specific inhibitors of ASK1 protein resulted in the bypass of the differentiation block and induction of a strong adipocytic differentiation.
  • These observations indicate that ASK1 is a target for new therapeutic management of these aggressive tumors.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Differential sensitivity of liposarcoma subtypes to chemotherapy.
  • Liposarcoma is one of the most common soft tissue sarcomas and has a number of different subtypes: well-differentiated; dedifferentiated; myxoid/round cell; and pleomorphic.
  • However, the response of these subgroups to chemotherapy is not well documented.
  • In this study, we have conducted a retrospective analysis of a prospectively maintained database of soft tissue sarcoma patients treated at the Royal Marsden Hospital.
  • Eighty-eight liposarcoma patients who received chemotherapy between August 1989 and June 2004 were identified.
  • The response rates to chemotherapy of the different histological subtypes and overall and progression free survival were investigated.
  • A statistically significant higher response rate to first-line chemotherapy was observed in patients with myxoid liposarcoma compared to de- and well-differentiated tumours, 48% (95%CI; 28-69) and 11% (95%CI; 2-29), P = 0.005.
  • Similarly, those with myxoid liposarcoma had a significantly higher response rate compared to all other liposarcoma patients, 48% (95%CI; 28-69) and 18% (95%CI; 8-31).
  • This retrospective analysis suggests that myxoid liposarcoma is relatively chemosensitive in comparison to a combination of other liposarcomas, and in particular de- and well-differentiated tumours.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Indication of chemotherapy according to histological type of musculoskeletal sarcomas].
  • In high-grade musculoskeletal sarcomas, adjuvant chemotherapy is often performed to prevent distant metastases.
  • As the efficacy of chemotherapy varies according to the histological type of sarcoma, its indication is determined according to the histological type and the stage.
  • However, because these sarcomas are chemosensitive, their prognoses are improved with adjuvant chemotherapy, so it is absolutely necessary.
  • Drugs commonly used for osteosarcoma include adriamycin, cisplatin, methotrexate, vincristine, and ifosfamide.
  • On the other hand, the efficacy of chemotherapy is unclear in most of the non-round cell sarcomas, e. g., malignant fibrous histiocytoma, pleomorphic liposarcoma, and leiomyosarcoma, so adjuvant chemotherapy is relatively indicated and often performed preoperatively.
  • Postoperative chemotherapy is performed when the preoperative chemotherapy is effective.
  • Among them, the key drugs are adriamycin and ifosfamide.
  • For chemoresistant sarcomas, e. g., chondrosarcoma, chordoma, alveolar soft part sarcoma, chemotherapy is rarely indicated, even if the tumor is histologically high grade and large.
  • Low-grade musculoskeletal sarcomas, e. g., low-grade chondrosarcoma, central low-grade osteosarcoma, parosteal osteosarcoma, well-differentiated liposarcoma, and dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, are well cured only by surgical excision, and adjuvant chemotherapy is therefore not indicated.
  • Superficially-located, small-size non-round cell sarcomas, even though histologically high grade, are well healed only by surgical excision, and adjuvant chemotherapy is rarely indicated.

  • We report two cases of retroperitoneal liposarcoma arisen from the perirenal fat tissue, which could not be diagnosed preoperatively.
  • Computed tomography and magnetic resonance image showed a mass over 10 cm that contained fat components in the retroperitoneal space.
  • The tumor was resected with left nephrectomy and histological examination revealed well differentiated liposarcoma.
  • As adjuvant therapy, he received chemotherapy and 30 months has passed uneventfully.
  • With clinical diagnosis as non-functioning adrenal tumor, he received left nephrectomy.
  • The pathological diagnosis was well differentiated liposarcoma, sclerosing type.
  • No adjuvant therapy was performed.
  • The characteristics of the images of the two cases were different despite the histological resemblance.
  • This difference was considered to be due to the difference in the distribution of lipomatous tissue in each patient.

  • [Title] Paratesticular liposarcoma: a clinicopathologic study.
  • Paratesticular liposarcomas are rare and typically reported as isolated cases or as components of larger studies of liposarcomas.
  • All cases of paratesticular liposarcomas were retrieved from the archives of the Royal Marsden Hospital and the Johns Hopkins Hospital.
  • There were 30 paratesticular liposarcomas from men aged 41-87 years (mean 63 years; median 65 years) that involved the spermatic cord (23, 76%), testicular tunics (6, 20%), and epididymis (1, 4%).
  • Nineteen were well-differentiated liposarcomas (WDLs) and 10 were dedifferentiated liposarcomas (DDLs, five with high-grade and five with low-grade dedifferentiation).
  • One was a myxoid/round cell liposarcoma with 70% round cell areas.
  • One patient with WDL received radiation after his second recurrence and the myxoid/round cell liposarcoma received radiation and chemotherapy.
  • Follow-up information was available for 16 of the patients, including 10 WDLs (range 24-216 months, mean 106 months), 5 DDLs (14-30 months, median 24 months), and for the myxoid/round cell liposarcoma (14 months) (range for all cases 14 months to 22 years; mean 87 months, median 36 months).
  • Six of the WDLs (60%) recurred at 2, 4, 6, 10, 18, and 21 years (median 8 years).
  • One patient with WDL had two recurrences at 4 and 7 years, and another had six recurrences over a 17-year period.
  • Only one example of DDL recurred, at 30 months; another patient, who refused therapy for 15 years, had a primary tumor 30 cm in diameter, displayed pulmonary metastases 1 month after excision, and died after 14 months.
  • In summary, paratesticular WDL had a prolonged course with recurrences in more than half the cases, sometimes late.
  • One DDL recurred and only one of five (20%) developed metastases, but the mean follow-up for DDL was only 24 months.

  • Dedifferentiated liposarcoma accounts for only 10% of all spermatic cord sarcomas.
  • These are usually large-sized tumours histologically characterised for being well-differentiated liposarcomas with some high grade sarcoma areas.
  • Volume, location, mass homogeneity as well as presence of pelvic and retroperitoneal adenopathies are reported by CT and ultrasound techniques.
  • These are useful for post-treatment follow-up.
  • This paper presents one spermatic cord, dedifferentiated liposarcoma from which lipomas from the same spermatic cord had been previously removed in three occasions.
  • Value of adjuvant radio- and chemotherapy is uncertain.

  • The histology demonstrated a well-differentiated liposarcoma.
  • Liposarcomas are the most common soft tissue sarcomas in adults but occurrence in the gastrointestinal tract is extremely rare.
  • Surgical resection with clear margins is the treatment of choice for primary liposarcomas.
  • They are moderately radiosensitive and chemotherapy is non-effective.
  • Although gastrointestinal liposarcomas have been previously reported, this is the first reported case of a primary liposarcoma associated with a small bowel perforation.

  • [Title] Well-differentiated mesenteric liposarcoma with osseous metaplasia: a potential diagnostic dilemma for the pathologist.
  • BACKGROUND: Mesenteric liposarcoma is a rare intra-abdominal sarcoma with very few cases reported in the available English literature.
  • Dedifferentiation in liposarcoma manifests as a nonlipogenic sarcoma, which is usually high-grade and may show osteosarcomatous differentiation rarely.
  • To the best of our knowledge, osteoid metaplasia in a well-differentiated liposarcoma without evidence of dedifferentiation has not been documented in the available literature.
  • CASE: We describe the case of a middle-aged adult man with a well-differentiated liposarcoma of the mesentery.
  • The patient presented with a recurrent tumor 5 years after the initial surgery.
  • At recurrence, the histological features were those of a well-differentiated liposarcoma with focal osseous metaplasia without any evidence of dedifferentiation in the extensive sections examined.
  • CONCLUSION: Osseous metaplasia is a rare phenomenon in lipomas and dedifferentiated liposarcomas.
  • Such an occurrence in a recurrent well-differentiated liposarcoma is a perplexing problem due to the potential confusion with dedifferentiation.
  • This needs to be recognized to avoid overzealous chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy, which is required for dedifferentiated tumors.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • CONTEXT: Adipocytes release a variety of factors which deregulation could provide the basis for complications such as insulin resistance, an early defect on the onset of type 2 diabetes.
  • OBJECTIVE: The objective of the study was to dissect the molecular mechanisms that may regulate hyperinsulinemia-induced insulin resistance in a human liposarcoma cell line and its paracrine interactions with a human rhabdomyosarcoma cell line.
  • DESIGNS: We studied glucose uptake, lipolysis, insulin signaling, and secretion pattern at different days of adipocyte differentiation in the presence of insulin.
  • RESULTS: Adipocytes differentiated for 14 d gain insulin sensitivity on glucose uptake and inhibition of lipolysis, but prolonged cultures develop an insulin-resistant state characterized by an increase in phosphatase and tensin homolog-deleted on chromosome 10 expression and defects in insulin signaling at the insulin receptor substrate-1/AKT level.
  • Pharmacological treatment of adipocytes with a liver X receptor agonist reestablishes insulin-stimulated glucose uptake, whereas treatment with a peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma agonist restored the antilipolytic action of insulin.

  • [Title] A case representing coexistence of acute myeloblastic leukemia and dedifferentiated liposarcoma: the possible role of chemotherapy in triggering dedifferentiation.
  • Dedifferentiated and well-differentiated liposarcomas are the two pathological subtypes of liposarcoma, based on the WHO classification.
  • Transition from well-differentiated to dedifferentiated liposarcoma is a well-recognized phenomenon.
  • Well-differentiated tumors are known to have low malignancy grade.
  • This process largely is believed to progress in a time-dependant manner; however, time is not the only factor of importance.
  • To date, the coexistence of AML and liposarcoma has not been reported in the literature.
  • In this paper, we report on a case of coexistence of AML and liposarcoma, and on the unusual behavior of a well-differentiated tumor after dedifferentiation occurs.

  • [Title] Fine needle aspiration cytology of a dedifferentiated liposarcoma: report of a case with histologic and immunohistochemical follow-up.
  • It occurs in tumors of the retroperitoneum and in those undergoing treatment.
  • This usually occurs in the setting of radiation or chemotherapy or as a spontaneous process over a long period.
  • CASE: We report the cytologic features of a dedifferentiated liposarcoma arising in a 76-year-old man who had a history of well-differentiated liposarcoma.
  • There were multinucleated, pleomorphic giant cells with abundant cytoplasm, smaller clusters of cells with a high nuclear/cytoplasmic ratio and cells with spindled and elongated nuclear features.
  • The follow-up surgical resection specimen showed a dedifferentiated liposarcoma with strong and diffuse immunoreactivity to vimentin, desmin and CD68 in the large, pleomorphic cells; focal and weak immunoreactivity to smooth muscle actin and S-100 in these cells; and strong and focal immunoreactivity to desmin, smooth muscle actin and muscle-specific actin in the spindle cells.
  • CONCLUSION: Dedifferentiation of a well-differentiated liposarcoma should be entertained in the setting of a mass lesion in the retroperitoneum in patients with prior histories of well-differentiated liposarcoma.

  • Diagnosis and treatment of RSTS can be extremely challenging for a general surgeon.
  • Treatment of RSTS remains surgical.
  • Multiple trials of chemotherapy and radiation therapy show no survival benefit.
  • The only successful treatment of this tumor is complete excision; 51.4 per cent of tumors can be completely excised, and 50.2 per cent of these excisions include adjacent organs.

  • [Title] Resectable well-differentiated versus dedifferentiated liposarcomas: two different diseases possibly requiring different treatment approaches.
  • BACKGROUND: Division of retroperitoneal liposarcoma (RPLS) into well-differentiated (WD) and dedifferentiated (DD) subtypes is established; however, WD and DD are usually treated similarly.
  • We hypothesized that WD and DD have distinct biological behaviors mandating different treatments.
  • A significant proportion of DD (37.7%) received chemotherapy compared to WD (1.7%; p < 0.0001).
  • Median time to recurrence was 55.5 months in WD versus 13.5 months in DD (p < 0.0001).
  • Treatment should therefore reflect these biologic differences by maximizing survivorship while avoiding unnecessarily extensive multivisceral resection.
  • SYNOPSIS: The biological behaviors of well-differentiated and dedifferentiated liposarcomas differ significantly.
  • This article presents outcomes of two different surgical approaches that were implemented at the UTMDACC, treating these tumors as different disease entities.

  • [Title] Management of liposarcoma occurring in pregnant women.
  • BACKGROUND: The coexistence of pregnancy and liposarcoma is rare.
  • Only 12 cases of pregnancy-associated liposarcoma have previously been reported in the English-language literature.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: We present two cases of liposarcoma occurring in pregnant patients: one myxoid liposarcoma in a 29-year-old woman at 29 weeks' gestation; another well-differentiated liposarcoma in a 44-year-old woman at 22 weeks' gestation.
  • The patient was subsequently treated with chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
  • The second patient awaited delivery until 32 weeks' gestation with no treatment of the tumor because she had a low-grade sarcoma.
  • After cesarean section, surgical treatment followed.
  • CONCLUSION: Treatment of sarcomas occurring during pregnancy is difficult.
  • Both mother and fetus should be appropriately managed, depending on the trimester at the time of diagnosis and the histological type and grade of the tumor.

  • Since amplification seems to be a primary aberration in these tumors, whereas amplification in osteosarcoma generally is a progression marker, the underlying biological mechanisms may be different.
  • We have therefore investigated the molecular response to Nutlin treatment in several liposarcoma cell lines with such markers, as well as a panel of other sarcoma cell lines.
  • We report that Nutlin efficiently stabilized p53 and induced downstream p53 dependent transcription and apoptosis in liposarcoma cells with amplified MDM2 in vitro.
  • Thus, Nutlin represents a promising new therapeutic principle for the treatment of an increasing group of sarcomas.

  • [Title] Head and neck liposarcomas: a 32 years experience.
  • OBJECTIVE: The aim of this review is to study natural history, presentation, treatment and prognosis of head and neck liposarcomas.
  • Therapeutic modalities included surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
  • Histological types of liposarcomas were the following: myxoid (5 cases), well differentiated (4 cases), pleomorphic (4 cases), round cell (1 case) and dedifferentiated (1 case).
  • After initial treatment, complete remission was achieved in 7 cases (46.7%).
  • Two of these patients were reoperated and another one received chemotherapy.
  • In the other 5 cases, the tumor was uncontrollable and no additional treatment has been proposed.
  • CONCLUSION: The mainstay of treatment of head and neck liposarcomas is surgical excision and the prognosis is largely determined by the histological grade and the clinical stage.

  • [Title] Round cell liposarcoma of scrotum with indolent course in young adult.
  • Myxoid/Round cell liposarcoma accounts for one-half of all liposarcomas and occurs as the second most common subtype.
  • Both myxoid and round cell types share clinical, histological features and are accepted to represent a spectrum of lesions ranging from pure myxoid to near completely round cell liposarcoma.
  • Round cell liposarcoma is highly metastatic and is classified as high grade and poorly differentiated myxoid sarcoma.
  • Typical non-round cell myxoid liposarcoma is less metastatic and has more favorable prognosis.
  • Karyotypic study of myxoid and round cell liposarcomas reveal a characteristic reciprocal translocation t (12;16)(q13;p11) resulting in the fusion of CHOP gene with TLS gene in more than 90% of cases.
  • Most masses within the scrotal sac arise from the testis proper, and less likely from the extratesticular tissue.
  • Liposarcoma represents approximately 20% of malignant extratesticular neoplasms, with the well differentiated subtype being the most common.
  • Myxoid/round cell liposarcoma and round cell liposarcoma are rarely encounter in extratesticular soft tissue.
  • We reported a rare case of round cell liposarcoma (high grade myxoid liposarcoma) of extratesticular tissue.
  • To our knowledge, this is the first case of a large size (> 5cm) round cell liposarcoma arising from soft tissue within the scrotal sac of young adult with indolent course.
  • Simple excision or enucleation are inadequate therapies and wide excision of the hemiscrotum including inguinal soft tissue and nodes is recommended.
  • The role of retroperitoneal lymph node dissection and adjuvant chemotherapy remains controversial.

  • [Title] Liposarcoma of the pleural cavity: clinical and pathologic features of 4 cases with a review of the literature.
  • BACKGROUND: Primary liposarcomas of the pleura are extremely rare malignancies, and relatively few reports appear in the world literature.
  • DESIGN: We compiled a small series of 4 cases of primary pleural liposarcoma from the files of the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology (Washington, DC) and compared the histopathologic and clinical features of these 4 cases with those of 9 previously published cases.
  • Histologic subtypes in the 9 cases with available information included 5 myxoid liposarcomas, 1 well-differentiated liposarcoma, and 3 liposarcomas with mixtures of histologic types.
  • Surgical resection with or without chemotherapy appeared to be the most common form of treatment, although radiation therapy was used in some cases and seemed beneficial.
  • Survival information was available for 11 cases; 4 patients died of disease at 7, 9, 12, and 19 months; 1 died of heart failure 2 days after presentation; 1 died of unknown causes 16 months after presentation; and 3 patients were alive without tumor at 5, 16, and 66 months after diagnosis.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Primary pleural liposarcomas occur predominantly in older men, and the myxoid histologic subtype is the most common.
  • Radiographic or surgical evaluation is important to distinguish primary pleural liposarcoma from chest wall or mediastinal sarcomas, as well as metastases from other sites.
  • Although further investigation is needed, evidence from the cases reviewed here indicates that surgical resection with adjuvant radiation therapy may benefit patients with primary pleural liposarcoma.

  • [Title] Primary orbital liposarcoma.
  • PURPOSE: To describe 6 new cases of primary orbital liposarcoma and provide a review of the relevant literature.
  • PARTICIPANTS: Six patients with primary orbital liposarcoma.
  • MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Patient demographics; clinical presentations; results of radiologic imaging; histopathology; surgical techniques used and their complications; other treatment modalities; outcomes and recurrences.
  • RESULTS: Six cases of primary orbital liposarcoma were identified, 5 of which were primary presentations and 1 of which was a recurrence.
  • Literature review identified 34 other cases of primary orbital liposarcoma, which, partly because of its rarity, is frequently initially misdiagnosed.
  • The most common subtype is myxoid (56.8%); other types are pleomorphic (10.8%) and well differentiated (29.7%).
  • Well-differentiated tumors have the best prognosis.
  • Although radiotherapy has an established role in the treatment of nonorbital liposarcoma, the role of both radiotherapy and chemotherapy in the management of primary orbital liposarcoma is still unclear.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Orbital liposarcoma remains a diagnostic and surgical challenge.
  • Exenteration remains the treatment of choice, but clinicians must also be aware that liposarcoma may herald the diagnosis of the Li-Fraumeni familial cancer syndrome.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The approach to the management of retroperitoneal tumors begins with a complete history and physical examination.
  • Imaging of the abdomen and pelvis by computed tomography (CT) provides both an imaging modality and a method by which to obtain tissue for diagnosis.
  • Because a histologic diagnosis is essential in treatment planning, adequate tissue can usually be obtained by a CT-guided core biopsy.
  • If the diagnosis is sarcoma, additional tests necessary for staging include plain chest radiography and evaluation of the liver by either CT scan or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
  • The treatment options for primary retroperitoneal sarcomas include chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery, or a combination of these modalities; therefore, a multidisciplinary group best manages treatment planning.
  • Primary radiation therapy for cure is seldom effective for retroperitoneal sarcomas but can provide palliation in select cases.
  • Systemic chemotherapy for chemosensitive lesions, such as poorly differentiated liposarcoma, malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH), synovial cell sarcoma, and primitive neuroectodermal tumors (PNET), can be useful when used in a neoadjuvant manner.
  • Consequently, surgical resection continues to be the mainstay of treatment for retroperitoneal sarcomas and requires en bloc resection of the primary tumor.
  • Postoperative adjuvant therapy with chemotherapy or radiation has not been proven to be of any additional benefit.
  • Overall treatment results are predominantly influenced by tumor stage, grade, size, and margins of surgical resection.
