  • [Title] Epithelioid angiosarcoma of the skin: a study of 18 cases with emphasis on its clinicopathologic spectrum and unusual morphologic features.
  • We report 18 cases of cutaneous angiosarcoma with predominant or exclusive epithelioid morphology.
  • Therapeutic modalities included combined local excision, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy, depending on patient clinical status.
  • Of the 9 patients available for follow-up, 5 were alive and apparently well, 2 had recurrent disease, and 2 had died of tumor.
  • Our data show that epithelioid cutaneous angiosarcoma may have a broad morphological spectrum, raising interpretive challenges on microscopy.

  • While surgical resection is the primary treatment, the role of radiation therapy (RT) and chemotherapy remains unclear.
  • This study aimed at defining prognostic factors and treatment strategies.
  • A total dose of 50 Gy in 25 fractions was delivered in 50 patients.
  • At the completion of treatment, 89 patients had no residual tumour.
  • RESULTS: After a median follow-up of 64 months, 56 patients developed recurrent disease: 38 presented a local relapse and 37 developed distant metastases.
  • In multivariate analysis, favourable prognostic factors for better local control were: no residual tumour after treatment, no cellular pleomorphism, and histology other than angiosarcoma.
  • For DFS, the five favourable prognostic factors were non-menopausal status, no residual tumour after treatment, non-angiosarcoma histology, absence of tumour necrosis, and grade 1-2 histology.
  • CONCLUSION: While angiosarcoma has the worst prognosis, the outcome of the other types of sarcomas may be worsened by residual tumour after loco-regional treatment and high grade histology, a classical prognostic factor of the other soft tissue sarcomas.

  • [Title] Primary angiosarcoma of the thyroid gland with recurrence diagnosed by fine needle aspiration: a case report.
  • Angiosarcoma of the thyroid is a rare and aggressive primary malignant tumor of the thyroid originally reported in patients from the Swiss Alpine region.
  • We describe a case of primary angiosarcoma of the thyroid in a 48-year-old female, who presented with a rapidly enlarging neck mass associated with compressive symptoms.
  • A diagnosis of poorly differentiated malignant tumor consistent with angiosarcoma was made.
  • The patient was treated with radiation therapy but developed recurrence of the tumor.
  • Second aspiration cytology of the recurrent tumor yielded hypocellular smears containing singularly dispersed atypical cells having eccentrically-placed nuclei with prominent macronucleoli and intracytoplasmic vacuoles within a background of inflammatory cells, consistent with recurrent angiosarcoma.
  • Chemotherapy was started but she succumbed to the disease 7 months after diagnosis.

  • [Title] Outcome of locally recurrent and metastatic angiosarcoma.
  • BACKGROUND: Angiosarcoma (AS) is a rare soft tissue sarcoma with an enhanced propensity for local and systemic failure.
  • The outcome of locally recurrent and metastatic AS treated at a single institution was evaluated.
  • RESULTS: Forty-four patients were treated for locally recurrent AS; the majority (59%) were <or=5 cm; the most common sites were skin (48%) and breast (32%).
  • Thirty-two patients (73%) had surgery; 73% received chemotherapy; radiation was delivered to 41%.
  • Multivariable analysis identified size >5 cm as the only independent adverse prognosticator of recurrent AS-specific survival [hazard ratio (HR): 3.26, P = 0.04].
  • Chemotherapy, mainly doxorubicin- and/or paclitaxel-based regimens, were administered to 95 patients (96%).
  • CONCLUSION: Locally recurrent AS is often treatable; complete resection can potentially prolong survival.

  • [Title] Radiation-induced laryngeal angiosarcoma after cervical tuberculosis and squamous cell carcinoma: case report and review of the literature.
  • Primary laryngeal angiosarcoma (LA) is quite rare with only 13 cases reported in English literature to date.
  • A case of LA after radiation therapy for tuberculosis and squamous cell carcinoma is reported.
  • A 70-year-old woman had a history of radiation therapy for left cervical tuberculosis at the age of 28.
  • At 60 years of age a squamous cell carcinoma of the larynx was found and chemotherapy and radiotherapy, consisting of a total dose of 68.4 Gy, were administered.
  • At the age of 68, recurrent squamous cell carcinoma was suspected from several biopsies, and a total laryngectomy with right thyroidectomy was performed.
  • In the present case, it was suspected that irradiation to the larynx for cervical tuberculosis and squamous cell carcinoma induced angiosarcoma.
  • The patient was still alive despite multiple skin and soft tissue metastasis 3 years and 6 months after the radical operation.
  • Distinction of postirradiation angiosarcoma from pseudoangiosarcomatous carcinoma seems difficult but is important because irradiation is not effective and an initial radical surgery is the only effective treatment.
  • Although irradiation is a common treatment for laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma, this is only the second case of radiation-induced LA in English literature.

  • [Title] Pregnancy following recurrent angiosarcoma of the ovary--a case report and review of literature.
  • Surgery and radiotherapy have been the traditional treatment modalities.
  • CASE: The case we present is the only reported long-term survivor of recurrent ovarian angiosarcoma.
  • Her initial treatment was surgical, both at presentation and relapse but since she wished conservation of fertility, radical surgery and radiotherapy were avoided and she underwent further adjuvant chemotherapy with doxorubicin and ifosfamide.
  • She remains in remission 6 years after treatment of recurrence of the primary tumor and has had a successful pregnancy following treatment.
  • CONCLUSION: Adjuvant chemotherapy of ovarian angiosarcoma with a combination of doxorubicin and ifosfamide appears effective and should be considered in women at risk of relapse who wish to conserve fertility.

  • [Title] Infraorbital cutaneous angiosarcoma: a diagnostic and therapeutic dilemma.
  • BACKGROUND: A cutaneous angiosarcoma is a rare malignant tumour of vascular endothelial cells with aggressive clinical behaviour and poor prognosis.
  • CASE PRESENTATION: This case presents a 64-year-old man with a six-month-history of a recurrent diffuse and erythematous painless swelling below the left eye.
  • Histopathologic examination of the specimen diagnosed a cutaneous angiosarcoma.
  • Neither, finally achieved negative margins on permanent sections, nor a following chemotherapy could prevent the recurrence of the disease after five months and the patient's dead 21 months after the first diagnosis.
  • CONCLUSION: The case elucidates the current diagnostic and therapeutic dilemma of this entity, which shows an unfavourable clinical course in spite of multimodal therapy.

  • [Title] Limb salvage by neoadjuvant isolated perfusion with TNFalpha and melphalan for non-resectable soft tissue sarcoma of the extremities.
  • AIMS: Patients with non-resectable soft tissue sarcomas of the extremities do not live longer if they are treated by amputation or disarticulation.
  • In order to avoid major amputations, we tested isolated limb perfusion (ILP) with tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNF)+melphalan+/-interferon-gamma (IFN) as a pre-operative, neoadjuvant limb salvage treatment.
  • Thirteen cases were recurrent or progressive after previous therapy; five tumours had a diameter >/=20 cm, and four were multiple or regionally metastatic.
  • There were six malignant fibrous histiocytomas, five liposarcomas, four malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumours, three rhabdomyosarcomas, two leiomyosarcomas, one recurrent extraskeletal osteosarcoma and one angiosarcoma.
  • All patients had fever for 24 hours but only one developed a reversible grade 3 distributive shock syndrome with no sequelae.
  • Seventeen patients (77%) underwent limb-sparing resection of the tumour remnants after a median time of 3.4 months: 10 resections were intracompartmental and seven extracompartmental.
  • Adjuvant chemotherapy was given to eight patients and radiotherapy to six.
  • The median disease free and overall survival times have been >12.5 and 18.7 months respectively: this is similar to the outcome after primary amputations for similar cases.
  • CONCLUSION: ILP with TNF and chemotherapy is an efficient limb sparing neoadjuvant therapy for a priori non-resectable limb soft tissue sarcomas.

  • Tumor response to photodynamic therapy (PDT) is dependent on treatment parameters used.
  • In particular, the light fluence rate may be an important determinant of the treatment outcome.
  • In this clinical case report, we describe the response of angiosarcoma to PDT carried out using different fluence rates and drug and light doses.
  • A patient with recurrent multifocal angiosarcoma of the head and neck was recruited for PDT.
  • Repeat PDT carried out on a recurrent lesion at a lower fluence rate resulted in eradication of both treated and untreated lesions despite the lower total light dose delivered.
  • Our clinical observations show that lower fluence rate PDT results in better outcome and also indicate that the fluence rate, rather than the total light dose, is a more crucial determinant of the treatment outcome.

  • [Title] Angiosarcoma of the scalp.
  • Angiosarcoma is a relatively rare soft tissue tumour.
  • The treatment depends on the extent of the disease.
  • Radiotherapy and chemotherapy are advocated in the recurrent or extensive lesions with regional or distant metastasis.
  • Initially thought to be a pyogenic granuloma, on excisional biopsy it was diagnosed as angiosarcoma with microscopic involvement of the margins.
  • The patient was not given postoperative radiotherapy or chemotherapy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The purpose of this study was to examine the presentation, treatment, and prognosis of patients presenting with these neoplasms.
  • RESULTS: Of the 55 patients, 17 had breast-conserving therapy and 38 women had mastectomy.
  • The types of sarcoma included angiosarcoma (18), malignant fibrous histiocytoma (11), stromal sarcoma (8), liposarcoma (4), leiomyosarcoma (4), dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (4), osteosarcoma (3), fibrosarcoma (2), and rhabdomyosarcoma (1).
  • Twenty-nine of 53 patients (55%) developed recurrent sarcoma, and 23 patients (43%) died of their disease.
  • Patients with angiosarcoma had a poorer outcome than other sarcoma patients.
  • Twelve of 18 patients (67%) died of angiosarcoma, compared with 11 of 32 patients (34%) of all other sarcoma patients combined.
  • Of 34 patients who did not receive adjuvant chemotherapy or radiation, 13 died of their disease (38%), as compared with 10 of 16 patients (63%) who did receive adjuvant therapy.
  • CONCLUSIONS: While primary nonphylloides breast sarcomas are rare tumors, their treatment and prognosis are poor.
  • Adjuvant chemotherapy and radiation did not improve survival in this report.
  • Surgical extirpation remains the only effective treatment.
