NEW COURSE The diagnosis of soft tissue tumors can be a significant challenge, even to the experienced surgical pathologist, due to the broad morphologic spectrum of mesenchymal tumors and histologic overlap among soft tissue tumors and non-mesenchymal neoplasms. Furthermore, shared immunohistochemical features as well as genetic alterations are common. While current classification schemes guide the organization of most soft tissue tumors based on the line of differentiation exhibited by the tumor cells, for many soft tissue tumors, the lineage is not obvious. This course will teach a pattern-based approach to the evaluation of soft tissue tumors, guided by the predominant cytomorphology (i.e., epithelioid, spindle cell, pleomorphic, round cell), with an emphasis on the integration of clinical findings and morphologic features, as well as the judicious application of immunohistochemistry and other ancillary tests, particularly FISH, in differential diagnosis. The goal is to provide a practical ...

Treatment For treatment of soft tissue tumors used surgical, radiation and drug methods, and combinations thereof.The main treatment - benign soft tissue tumors and most malignant is surgical.. Surgical treatment is used in two forms: wide excision and amputation (disarticulation) limbs.. Indications and contraindications to a particular method of treatment is quite difficult.Wide excision is indicated for sarcomas is not very significant for the size of the tumor, located relatively shallow and retained displaceability in the absence of their germination in the main vessels, bone and nerve trunks.. amputation is shown in the following cases: 1) tumor can not be removed by wide excision;. 2) wide excision of the tumor to save the limb, which can not be used (poor circulation and nerve supply);. 3) failure of multiple intact operations;. 4) the palliative amputation due to bleeding, intolerable pain, smell (decay, bleeding tumors).. When performing a wide excision of the tumor should be removed ...
In the last few years, the primary diagnosis of soft tissue tumours has emerged as an important new target for fine needle aspiration (FNA). The purpose of this book is to facilitate the cytological evaluation of FNA smears from soft tissue tumours and to suggest cytological criteria for histotype diagnoses. Its primary aim is to describe and illustrate not only the most common types but also those rare tumours where cytological features have been largely described in case reports and in small series. The diagnostic use of ancillary methods is discussed and illustrated, and, in order to facilitate the diagnostic work-up in FNA samples, smears are also classified according to their principal microscopic patterns. The selection of entities presented, their diagnostic features and differential diagnostic considerations are mainly based on the experience with FNA in the primary diagnosis of soft tissue tumours in patients referred to the Musculoskeletal Tumour Centre ...

article{b660495a-d411-4374-8b5f-b31df816e17b, abstract = {Gene fusions are neoplasia-associated mutations arising from structural chromosomal rearrangements. They have a strong impact on tumor development and constitute important diagnostic markers. Malignant soft tissue tumors (sarcomas) constitute a heterogeneous group of neoplasms with >50 distinct subtypes, each of which is rare. In addition, there is considerable morphologic overlap between sarcomas and benign lesions. Several subtypes display distinct gene fusions, serving as excellent biomarkers. The development of methods for deep sequencing of the complete transcriptome (RNA-Seq) has substantially improved the possibilities for detecting gene fusions. With the aim of identifying new gene fusions of biological and clinical relevance, eight sarcomas with simple karyotypes, ie, only one or a few structural rearrangements, were subjected to massively parallel paired-end sequencing of mRNA. Three different algorithms were used to identify ...

Multiple myeloma is from the existence of lytic bone tissue lesions usually. with MBD including bone tissue pain, lytic bone tissue lesions, pathologic fractures, and hypercalcemia. MM bone tissue lesions result not merely from the immediate sediment of multiple myeloma cells inside the bone tissue, but also in the discharge of soluble elements by both tumor as well as the bone tissue microenvironment which bring about arousal of osteoclast activity and bone tissue resorption. Typical radiographs from the skeleton are obtained following diagnosis of individuals with myeloma routinely. Unusual skeletal radiographs are discovered in a lot more than 80% of sufferers. The skeletal X-ray adjustments in multiple myeloma range between apparently normal bone fragments to extensive bone tissue lesions with concomitant pathological fractures [1]. Durie and Salmon discovered that the extant of bone tissue lesions correlated highly with tumor insert and prognosis and for that reason radiograph adjustments ...
A method is disclosed for treating benign conditions, such as enlarged tonsils and/or adenoids located in a patients throat or nasopharynx, or soft tissue lesions located in a patients oropharynx or larynx. According to the method, a space containing the patients nasopharynx, oropharynx or pharynx and larynx is isolated from the patients trachea and lungs using an inflatable cuff tracheostomy tube or nasotracheal tube inserted in the patients trachea. The cuff is inflated to occlude the trachea. The patient is placed in a supine position, whereupon at least a portion of the space containing the nasopharynx and/or oropharynx and larynx is filled with saline. An endoscope is then inserted into the space to view the operative site in which the tonsils or tissue lesion are to be treated. An electrosurgical instrument having an active tissue treatment electrode and a return electrode connected to an electrosurgical generator is then inserted into the space, either along side the endoscope or through the

Anthony T. Goode, PT/ATC, co-owner of ProActive Sports Rehab, recently completed Graston Technique M1-Basic Training and is now treating patients with GT. Graston Technique is a unique, evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively and efficiently address soft tissue lesions and fascial restrictions resulting in improved patient outcomes.. "Graston Technique can be used to treat any movement system dysfunction that has been determined to have a soft tissue component," said Goode.. The technique uses specially-designed stainless steel instruments with unique treatment edges and angles to deliver an effective means of manual therapy. The use of the GT instruments, when combined with appropriate therapeutic exercise, leads to the restoration of pain-free movement and function.. The technique also improves diagnostic treatment, increases patient satisfaction by achieving notably faster and better outcomes, speeds rehabilitation and ...
There is a need for outcome measurement tools which are able to provide accurate and reliable information regarding the efficiency and efficacy of therapeutic intervention of soft tissue injury e.g. ligament tear. Electrical activity within the body tissues has been shown to be influenced by the tissue state, and following injury, bioelectric changes have been demonstrated for example in bone healing and nerve regeneration. This project considers the relationship between the electrical potentials recorded from the skin surface and clinical recovery following a soft tissue lesion. The measurement of the skin potential is not new but the application and approach used is novel in that a non invasive differential skin surface potential is used instead of the traditional and invasive transcutaneous potential. The differential potential was initially investigated in non injured subjects in order to gain an understanding of its character and behaviour. Simultaneous monitoring of environmental, ...
The use of PRP for the treatment of a variety of soft tissue tendon and ligament injuries is rapidly expanding. After taking a sample of the patients blood, in minutes a portable filtration system separates blood plasma rich in platelets from red blood cells. This PRP, along with its associated growth factors, is then immediately injected via ultrasound guided techniques into the soft tissue lesions creating what some call a "super-clot" that serves to help create a biologic scaffold upon which the bodys own cells migrate. These cells produce new collagen fibrils along lines of tension in the structure being treated. Sometimes even used in conjunction with stem cell treatment, PRP is a fast, inexpensive treatment that uses the horses own cells and molecules to stimulate more rapid and stronger healing in a variety of structures. We use this often for flexor tendon core lesions and suspensory ligament desmitis.. ...

At first, RNMO was regarded as a subtype of MS, because both of them have a relapsing-remitting course. However, increasing evidence supports the concept that RNMO is a distinctive disorder.2-12 Some previous studies have confirmed that NAWM and NAGM had occult damage in patients with MS.15-18 Such damage may be caused by occult brain tissue lesions (confirmed by pathologic studies28-31) and by the secondary degeneration resulting from MS visible lesions. Some authors have reported that patients with NMO had occult damage in GM and adaptive reorganization in functional cortices.20,21 However, whether such damage was present in brain WM and its possible mechanism (occult brain tissue lesions, secondary degeneration caused by lesions in the spinal cord and optic nerve, or both) need to be determined.. In this study, we first analyzed the MD and FA histograms of the BT to globally investigate whether patients with RNMO had abnormal brain diffusion. We found that they had a higher average MD than ...

Considering the extreme histological heterogeneity of soft tissue sarcomas (STS), their management is an art of its own. Over the last decade the treatment of STSs has been slowly shifting towards a more individualized, histology driven tailored approach. With the availability of novel antineoplastic agents and the differential sensitivity of different subtypes of sarcomas to these drugs, we aim to provide some guidance in terms of optimal sequencing of therapies. Furthermore, we discuss some of the emerging targeted therapies currently evaluated for the palliative treatment of the more common and some of the very rare STS subtypes.. ...
Alveolar soft part sarcoma (ASPS) is a rare malignant soft tissue tumor of uncertain origin, and it has a strong propensity for metastasis to the lungs, bones and brain. We report upon an unusual case of ASPS, presenting as multiple lung nodules with no other detectable primary site, in a 44-year-old man. A fine needle aspiration of the nodules yielded scattered, discohesive cells, each containing an eccentrically displaced nucleus and prominent nucleolus, on a granular background. Tumor cells with numerous bared nuclei, and occasional sheets of epithelioid cells were also found. Under the cytological diagnosis of an unclassified epithelioid malignant tumor, resection of the lung nodules was performed. The histologic findings were consistent with ASPS, showing positive TFE3-nuclear immunoreactivity. There is limited literature concerning cytological findings associated with pulmonary ASPS: especially in cases where the primary site is unknown. Here, we present a cytological review of pulmonary ...

The p53 and MDM2 genes were analyzed in 24 human soft tissue sarcomas (11 malignant fibrous histiocytomas and 13 liposarcomas). Alterations of p53, consisting of point mutations, deletions, or overexpression, were detected in one-third (8 of 24) of the sarcomas. MDM2 gene amplification was detected in another 8 tumors, but no tumor contained an alteration of both genes. Monoclonal antibodies reactive with the human MDM2 gene product were developed, and immunohistochemical analysis revealed nuclear localization and overexpression of MDM2 in those tumors with amplified MDM2 genes. These data support the hypothesis that p53 and MDM2 genetic alterations are alternative mechanisms for inactivating the same regulatory pathway for suppressing cell growth.. ...
A technique called regional hyperthermia (RHT) makes chemotherapy more effective and improves outcomes in patients with localized, high-risk soft tissue sarcoma, according to the results of a study recently published in the journal The Lancet.[1] These findings were initially presented on September 22, 2009 at Europes largest cancer congress, ECCO 15-ESMO 34, in Berlin.[2]. Soft tissue sarcomas are cancers that affect the connective and supportive tissues, which include bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, fat, blood vessels, and fibrous tissues. Sarcomas are relatively uncommon, but when they do occur, they tend to affect children and young adults. The primary treatment for sarcoma is surgery; however, because of the difficulty in removing these tumors, they are often treated with radiation and chemotherapy as well. Survival for this disease varies depending on the location and size of the tumor. Patients who are considered high-risk typically relapse within two or three years.. Regional ...

Discussion Soft tissue sarcomas are rare tumors and constitute about 1% of all malignant neoplasms of adulthood. They can appear in any part of body [11-13]. Liposarcoma represents a relatively common malignant soft tissue tumor of adults and constitutes about 10-16% of these tumors. Most liposarcomas are located in lower extremities, trunk, shoulder and pelvic girdle, upper extremities and Retroperitoneum. This tumor happens indeed very rarely in female genital tract [14,15]. Liposarcomas are classified according to the WHO classification in the following groups: well differentiated, myxoid/round cell, dedifferentiated and pleomorphic. They display t(12;16) (q13;p11.2) [14,15]. The present case is a dedifferentiated liposarcoma of vagina grade 2. To our knowledge a liposarcoma of vagina has not been reported yet. Although there is some report of casuistic relationship between liposarcoma and lipoma, they are hardly separable solely based on clinical and medical imaging findings [14,15]. The ...

I am a pediatric plastic and craniofacial surgeon. My practice consists of a majority of pediatric cases, many of which are nevus and soft tissue lesion cases. I have been in practice for 7 years, 2 years in academics and 5 years in hospital-based practice. I am currently the medical director of a childrens hospital cleft lip and palate team. My practice consists of approximately 75% pediatric patients and 25% adult patients. I excise pigmented nevi and other soft tissue lesions over 100 times per year. I remove larger nevi requiring serial excision perhaps 5-6 times per year. The largest nevi that require tissue expanders to recruit skin prior to excision are rarer, and I do perhaps only 2-3 per year. I do, however, have extensive, frequent experience with using tissue expanders for a variety of other reasons, such as breast reconstruction. The principles and practices of tissue expansion are the same, regardless of the reason for using them or the location.. Large, pigmented nevi historically ...
Soft tissue sarcomas are a heterogenous group of neoplasms with various histological subtypes. Up to now, no individual causal molecular markers for prognosis and therapeutic success have been identified. A tumorigenic connection between the oncogene product Mdm2 and tumor suppressor p53 is generally accepted, but their possible clinical relevance has not yet been investigated sufficiently in soft tissue sarcoma. In 86 primary soft tissue sarcoma of the extremities (RO-resected, T1/2 N0 M0), Mdm2 and p53 overexpression were investigated by immunohistochemistry. The results were adjusted to clinico-pathological characteristics and evaluated for their prognostic relevance by multivariate analysis. In Coxs multivariate analysis with stratification of Mdm2 to p53 results, we determined four groups which had different prognostic values for relapse-free and overall survival (Mdm2−/p53−|Mdm2−/p53+ |Mdm2+/p53−|Mdm2+/p53+). The most striking finding was a relative risk (rr) for overall survival of 18.77

Lipomas are the most common benign soft tissue tumors that may occur anywhere in the body, and are mostly found within the subcutaneous areas. However, compared to common inter-muscular lipomas, giant, deep-seated lipomas of the hip are even more infrequent and thus easily misdiagnosed. In this study, we presented an adult female patient with an unusually large, deep intermuscular lipoma in the left hip that led the initial misdiagnosis.. Due to the rare location, intermuscular giant lipomas are easily overlooked when making primary diagnosis upon admission. To differentiate from other soft tissue tumors, auxiliary examinations including ultrasonography, CT and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are needed, which may improve the diagnosis, as well as an appropriate staging of the tumor extension and involved structures. Ultrasonography of the lipomas is often the initial diagnostic procedure due to its availability and cost-effectiveness, when compared with CT and MRI. Generally, lipomas have been ...
Glomus tumor is a rare benign soft tissue neoplasm presenting in the second to fourth decade of life and originates from the glomus body. It accounts for 1-5% of all soft tissue tumors of the upper extremity. A glomus body is a component of the dermis layer of the skin, involved in thermoregulation. The glomus body consists of an arterio-venous shunt surrounded by a capsule of connective tissue and is found in increased amounts in the fingers and toes. The glomus body shunts blood away from the skin surface during cold temperatures thereby preventing heat loss, and causes maximum heat flow to the skin in warm weather.. Glomus tumors present as painful less than 2cm, blue-red blanchable papules or nodules in the deep dermis or subcutaneous fat most commonly on the fingers and toes and under the nail plate. They are composed of glomus cells, vasculature, and smooth muscle cells. During cold temperatures or pressure changes these tumors elicit severe paroxysmal pain and discomfort to the ...

Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) is the most common malignant soft tissue tumor in children and is highly resistant to all forms of treatment currently available once metastasis or relapse has commenced. As it has recently been determined that the acetylcholine receptor (AChR) γ-subunit, which defines the fetal AChR (fAChR) isoform, is almost exclusively expressed in RMS post partum, we recombinantly fused a single chain variable fragment (scFv) derived from a fully human anti-fAChR Fab-fragment to Pseudomonas exotoxin A to generate an anti-fAChR immunotoxin (scFv35-ETA).While scFv35-ETA had no damaging effect on fAChR-negative control cell lines, it killed human embryonic and alveolar RMS cell lines in vitro and delayed RMS development in a murine transplantation model. These results indicate that scFv35-ETA may be a valuable new therapeutic tool as well as a relevant step towards the development of a fully human immunotoxin directed against RMS. Moreover, as approximately 20% of metastatic malignant melanomas

Soft tissue sarcomas and glioblastomas are two deadly tumors that are characterized by aggressive overproliferation, and regions of severe intratumoral nutrient and oxygen deprivation. The mechanisms by which tumors evade proliferation control signals and survive in a hostile microenvironment are active areas of investigation. This work describes two projects investigating loss of proliferation control in soft tissue sarcoma, as a result of Hippo pathway deregulation, and mechanisms of survival under stress in glioblastoma, as a result of decreased microRNA-124 (miR-124) levels. First, we demonstrate that the Hippo pathway is deregulated in soft tissue sarcoma patient samples, leading to overexpression of the Hippo effector YAP. YAP, a transcriptional coactivator, binds to TEAD proteins in the nucleus and controls the transcription of multiple pro-proliferation and anti-apoptosis targets, including the transcription factor FOXM1. Interestingly, we show that FOXM1 physically interacts with the TEAD/YAP

The standard of care for patients with advanced soft-tissue sarcoma is treatment with first-line chemotherapeutic agents such as doxorubicin. However, clinical response to these drugs is limited and is often accompanied by toxic side effects. Soft-tissue sarcomas are characterized by significant tumor hypoxia, which has been associated with chemotherapy resistance, metastasis, and poor prognosis, suggesting that targeting the hypoxic tumor microenvironment may be beneficial. Chawla and colleagues assessed the safety and efficacy of first-line treatment with doxorubicin in combination with TH-302, a prodrug that is preferentially activated under hypoxia to generate a cytotoxic alkylating active metabolite, in an open-label, single-arm phase II trial of 91 patients with advanced soft-tissue sarcoma. Compared with historical outcomes of response to doxorubicin treatment, patients receiving combination therapy exhibited a higher six-month progression-free survival (PFS) rate of 58%, a median PFS of ...

A sarcoma is a type of cancer that develops from certain tissues, like bone or muscle. There are 2 main types of sarcoma: bone sarcomas and soft tissue sarcomas. Soft tissue sarcomas can develop from soft tissues like fat, muscle, nerves, fibrous tissues, blood vessels, or deep skin tissues. They can be found in any part of the body. Most of them develop in the arms or legs. They can also be found in the trunk, head and neck area, internal organs, and the area in back of the abdominal cavity (known as the retroperitoneum). Sarcomas are not common tumors, and most cancers are the type of tumors called carcinomas ...

Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) is a common malignant soft tissue sarcoma in children with limited treatment options and high failure rate during standard therapy. New therapeutic targets or strategies are therefore in high demand. The NAC complex performs many diverse biological functions, and the deregulation of its subunits has been correlated with many cancers. We sought to understand the function of NAC complex in normal muscle cells and rhabdomyosarcoma cells. With western blot, quantitative real time PCR (qRT-PCR), chromatin immunoprecipitation and immunostaining analysis, we found that the muscle specific subunit of NAC complex, skNAC, which is the alternatively spliced isoform of NACα, was downregulated in RMS cells. In normal cells, skNAC shuttled from the cytoplasm to the nucleus upon differentiation. We also showed that skNAC associated with muscle specific promoters together with BTF3 in differentiated cells, and this association is dependent on the expression of BTF3. The expression of ...

Context.-Angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma (AFH) is a rare soft tissue neoplasm of intermediate biologic potential and uncertain differentiation, most often arising in the superficial extremities of children and young adults. While it has characteristic histologic features of nodular distributions of ovoid and spindle cells with blood-filled cystic cavities and a surrounding dense lymphoplasmacytic infiltrate, there is a significant morphologic spectrum, which coupled with its rarity and lack of specific immunoprofile can make diagnosis challenging. Angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma is associated with 3 characteristic gene fusions, EWSR1-CREB1 and EWSR1-ATF1, which are also described in other neoplasms, and rarely FUS-ATF1. Angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma is now recognized at an increasing number of sites and is known to display a variety of unusual histologic features. Objective.-To review the current status of AFH, discussing putative etiology, histopathology with variant morphology and ...
1) Soft tissue sarcomas are rare mesenchymal tumours, which originate in non-epithelial connective tissue sources; liposarcomas are the most common soft tissue sarcomas.. (2) Five histopathologic subgroups of liposarcomas have been identified, as follows: well differentiated; myxoid; round cell; dedifferentiated; and pleomorphic variants. Myxoid liposarcoma is the most common subtype of liposarcoma, representing approximately one-third of all liposarcomas.. (3) Myxoid soft-tissue sarcomas encompass a heterogeneous group of rare tumours characterized by a marked abundance of mucoid/myxoid extracellular matrix. [The main clinicopathological entities in this group are myxoid liposarcoma, low-grade fibromyxoid sarcoma, extraskeletal myxoid chondrosarcoma, myxofibrosarcoma, myxoinflammatory fibroblastic sarcoma, and myxoid dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans.]. (4) The working group of the World Health Organization (WHO) for classification of tumours of soft-tissue and bone combined myxoid and round cell ...
Granular cell tumor is a tumor that can develop on any skin or mucosal surface, but occurs on the tongue 40% of the time. It is also known as Abrikossoffs tumor, Granular cell myoblastoma, Granular cell nerve sheath tumor, and Granular cell schwannoma.) Granular cell tumors show similarity to neural tissue, as can be demonstrated by immunohistochemistry and ultrastructural evidence using electron microscopy. Multiple granular cell tumors may seen in the context of LEOPARD syndrome, due to a mutation in the PTPN11 gene. These tumors on occasion may appear similar to neoplasms of renal (relating to the kidneys) origin or other soft tissue neoplasms. Granular cell tumors can affect all parts of the body; however, the head and neck areas are affected 45% to 65% of the time. Of the head and neck cases 70% of lesions are located intraorally (tongue, oral mucosa, hard palate). The next most common location that lesions are found in the head and neck area is the larynx (10%). Granular cell tumors are ...

Purpose: To study the impact of dose fractionation of adjuvant radiation therapy (RT) on local recurrence (LR) and the relation of LR to radiation fields. Methods and Materials: LR rates were analyzed in 462 adult patients with soft tissue sarcoma who underwent surgical excision and adjuvant RT at five Scandinavian sarcoma centers from 1998 to 2009. Medical records were reviewed for dose fractionation parameters and to determine the location of the LR relative to the radiation portals. Results: Fifty-five of 462 patients developed a LR (11.9%). Negative prognostic factors included intralesional surgical margin (hazard ratio [HR]: 7.83, 95% confidence interval [CI]: 3.08-20.0), high malignancy grade (HR: 5.82, 95% CI: 1.31-25.8), age at diagnosis (HR per 10 years: 1.27, 95% CI: 1.03-1.56), and malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor histological subtype (HR: 6.66, 95% CI: 2.56-17.3). RT dose was tailored to margin status. No correlation between RT dose and LR rate was found in multiple Cox ...
Tumors of the abdominal wall excised with inadequately wide margins have a high local recurrence rate. The surgeons fear of iatrogenic defects of the abdominal wall should not outweigh the need for wide resection margins to prevent tumor recurrence when excising primary and secondary malignancies. Appropriate monobloc excision of abdominal wall malignancies can be satisfactorily accomplished through a wide array of modalities. The authors describe successful abdominal wall reconstruction with the use of polypropylene mesh after excision of a recurrent soft tissue sarcoma. They review various methods of abdominal wall reconstruction to assist the surgeon in choosing the appropriate reconstruction technique. ...
