  • [Title] Primary hepatic leiomyosarcoma in a young man after Hodgkin's disease: diagnostic pitfalls and therapeutic challenge.
  • BACKGROUND: Primary leiomyosarcoma of the liver is a rare tumor whose development patterns are unsatisfactorily known.
  • PATIENT CASE: A 26-year-old male patient with a previous history of radiochemotherapy treatment for Hodgkin's lymphoma was referred to our unit with a histological and radiological diagnosis of primary hepatic leiomyosarcoma.
  • Shortly before referral the lesion had grown to 7.8 cm, associated with two smaller lesions in segments VIII and III, and a diagnosis of hepatic leiomyosarcoma was made at biopsy.
  • This was followed by rapid progression of the disease, in spite of transient stabilization under gemcitabine treatment.
  • Octreotide was also administered after the detection of elevated chromogranin A in serum.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The challenges and peculiarities of this case are related to the rarity of the tumor, its accidental discovery without immediate suspicion of its nature, its very aggressive behavior that was only partly controlled by chemotherapy, and the unusual expression of a neuroendocrine phenotypic feature with high serum chromogranin A levels.

  • A primary leiomyosarcoma (LMS) arising from the left fallopian tube in a perimenopausal 48-year-old woman is reported.
  • Primary tubal LMS is an uncommon, exceedingly rare neoplasm, accounting for only a few reported cases so far.
  • The diagnosis is usually made at the time of laparotomy for a pelvic or adnexal mass or other gynaecological indications.
  • As in ovarian neoplasms, the mainstay of treatment is represented by debulking surgery consisting of total abdominal hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, random biopsies, peritoneal washing and excision of all the abdominal tumour masses.
  • The role of adjuvant radio- or chemotherapy still remains unsolved.

  • We describe herein a case of primary leiomyosarcoma of the breast in a 54-year-old woman whose preoperative clinical and cytological findings indicated a benign breast tumour.
  • However, a core needle biopsy of the lesion showed malignant spindle cells without any ductal elements.
  • Histopathological examination of the mastectomy specimen suggested a diagnosis of leiomyosarcoma, which was subsequently confirmed by immunohistochemical analysis.
  • Primary leiomyosarcoma of the breast is very rare and is difficult to diagnose preoperatively as it needs immuno-histochemical staining.
  • The role of postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy is not well documented.

  • [Title] Unusual response to second-line single-agent gemcitabine in locally advanced primary leiomyosarcoma of the lung: a case report.
  • Primary leiomyosarcomas (LMSs) of the lung are extremely rare malignancies that have been the subject of single or small series of case reports.
  • Today, the gold standard of treatment in patients with locally advanced and metastatic disease includes one of the many possible regimens containing an anthracycline and/or ifosfamide.
  • Few chemotherapy agents are active in the second-line setting.
  • In particular, gemcitabine is considered quite ineffective in the treatment of first- as well as second-line chemotherapy of soft tissue sarcoma and responses to this agent are seldom reported.
  • In this paper, we report a single patient with primary LMS of the lung previously treated with a combination of epirubicin and ifosfamide.
  • The patient responded to second-line chemotherapy with gemcitabine 1250 mg/m2 given as a 30-minute infusion on days 1, 8, and 15 of a 28-day cycle and showed an 8-month response duration and negligible toxicity.
  • Gemcitabine may represent an alternative to the best supportive care in patients affected with soft tissue sarcoma who fail first-line chemotherapy.

  • [Title] A high-grade primary leiomyosarcoma of the bladder in a survivor of retinoblastoma.
  • Osteosarcoma is by far the most common type with an incidence of up to 50%, followed by soft tissue sarcomas.
  • Visceral leiomyosarcoma is extremely rare and only 2 cases have been reported in the past 2 decades, one in the liver and another one in the urinary bladder, both of which developed after cyclophosphamide therapy.
  • Here we report a case of vesical leiomyosarcoma that was diagnosed in a 49-year-old woman 47 years after the diagnosis of a hereditary retinoblastoma.
  • The patient's retinoblastoma was treated with unilateral enucleation without adjuvant radiation or chemotherapy.
  • We believe that this is the first report of vesical leiomyosarcoma occurring in a patient with retinoblastoma without a prior history of radiation or chemotherapy.
  • This report is significant not only because of the rarity of vesical leiomyosarcoma as a second nonocular tumor in retinoblastoma patients, but also because of the infrequency of vesical leiomyosarcoma in general.
  • We also investigated the potential molecular pathogenesis of the leiomyosarcoma.

  • [Title] Bcl-2 expression in a primary leiomyosarcoma of the ovary: a case report.
  • BACKGROUND: Primary ovarian leiomyosarcoma is an extremely rare malignant smooth-muscle neoplasm with fewer than 30 documented cases worldwide.
  • Until recently, no report investigated the role of bcl-2 expression in primary ovarian leiomyosarcoma.
  • We report the management and an immunohistochemical analysis of bcl-2 in a patient with primary leiomyosarcoma of the ovary.
  • Surgical exploration revealed a large left adnexal mass that had developed from the left ovary and infiltrated one part of the omentum adherent to the left adnexa.
  • According to the FIGO staging system for ovarian cancer, the tumor was classified as a primary ovarian leiomyosarcoma stage III C, and the patient was treated with an adjuvant chemotherapy regimen consisting of cisplatin and ifosfamide.
  • Two days after the third cycle of cisplatin/ifosfamid she developed an apoplexy spontaneously and chemotherapy was therefore discontinued.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Beside the routine histological and immunohistochemical characteristics of primary ovarian leiomyosarcoma, strong staining for bcl-2 was detected.
  • In order to understand more about the nature and the behaviour of this highly malignant neoplasm and to be able to improve the treatment, the prognostic value of bcl-2 has to be investigated in additional studies.

  • [Title] [Primary leiomyosarcoma of bone. Report of 5 anatomo-clinical cases and review of the literature].
  • INTRODUCTION: Leiomyosarcoma is a malignant smooth muscle tumor occurring most frequently in uterus or soft tissues and more rarely in bone.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: We report the clinicopathologic, immunohistochemical and ultrastructural findings of five cases of primary leiomyosarcoma of bone treated in our Department between 1991 and 1994.
  • RESULTS: The tumors were located respectively in the distal tibia (n=2), the distal femur, the sternum and the ilium (n=1).
  • Two patients died of metastatic disease, two had local recurrence and one is alive with no evidence of disease at the last follow-up.
  • DISCUSSION: Excluding cases which involve the facial skeleton, there are to our knowledge 95 cases of primary leiomyosarcoma of bone reported in the literature.
  • The diagnosis is based on microscopic features demonstrating fusiform tumor cells arranged in interwoven bundles, and the immunohistochemical results of widespread cytoplasmic positivity for smooth muscle actin.
  • The best pronostic parameter is the histologic grade correlated with both the recurrence and metastatic rates as well as the survival rate.
  • Surgery constitutes the main treatment since chemotherapy or radiotherapy did not provide an improved prognosis over a wide resection.

  • [Title] Surgical challenges in the treatment of leiomyosarcoma of the inferior vena cava: analysis of two cases and brief review of the literature.
  • BACKGROUND: Leiomyosarcoma of the inferior vena cava (IVC) is a rare tumor of mesenchymal origin.
  • Optimal treatment should include complete resection of the malignant lesion with preservation of venous return.
  • METHODS AND RESULTS: The first case is that of a 54-year-old woman, with a 9 cm a primary IVC leiomyosarcoma extending from the level of the right renal vein to the common iliac veins.
  • She received adjuvant chemotherapy and is free of recurrence almost 3 years after surgery.
  • Pathological examination confirmed primary leiomyosarcoma of the IVC.
  • She received adjuvant chemotherapy, but was referred to our hospital with local recurrence 6 months after the operation and is suffering from disseminated abdominal disease almost a year postsurgery.
  • CONCLUSION: Radical surgical en bloc resection is the mainstay of treatment for IVC leiomyosarcomas.

  • [Title] Primary uterine leiomyosarcoma and primary atypical meningioma diagnosed during pregnancy.
  • OBJECTIVE: Uterine leiomyosarcoma during pregnancy is an extremely rare event.
  • We report a case of both--a primary uterine leiomyosarcoma and additionally an atypical meningioma of the brain both diagnosed during pregnancy.
  • A tumoural mass was detected and initial conservative treatment was started.
  • Histopathological diagnosis of both tumours revealed an atypical meningioma of the brain and a uterine leiomyosarcoma.
  • The patient underwent laparatomy and received six cycles of adjuvant chemotherapy.
  • CONCLUSION: We are the first to report a case of a woman with two separate primary neoplasms both diagnosed during pregnancy.
  • Treatment options seem to be reduced in pregnant women and mainly depend on the patient's condition as well as the gestational age at presentation.
