BACKGROUND: Synovial sarcoma is a clinically rare, but morphologically well-defined neoplasm, which accounts for approximately 10% of all malignant soft-tissue tumors. The diagnosis can be established with clinical and imaging evaluations together with immunohistochemical, electron microscopy, and molecular genetic studies. CASE: We describe a case of primary pulmonary synovial sarcoma ...

Soft tissue sarcomas are relatively rare in the population, rarely encountered by the average orthopedic surgeon, and may only be seen once in a lifetime by a general practitioner. Although rare, it is a serious condition that, if diagnosed early, can result in improved prognosis. This article presents a case ...

Approximately 10% of surgically resected heart tumors are malignant. Of these, over 90% are sarcomas, and the remainder lymphomas. Sarcomas of the heart may be of a variety of histologic types. Angiosarcomas are usually right-sided, typically in the atrium. Most other heart sarcomas arise in the left atrium and may ...

Human herpesvirus 8 (HHV8) is necessary for Kaposi sarcoma (KS) to develop, but whether peripheral blood viral load is a marker of KS burden (total number of KS lesions), KS progression (the rate of eruption of new KS lesions), or both is unclear. We investigated these relationships in persons with ...

Dedifferentiated liposarcoma can be readily diagnosed by the juxtaposition of a well-differentiated liposarcoma to a nonlipogenic sarcoma. However, if the lipogenic component is not abundant due to surgical sampling or small biopsy, dedifferentiated liposarcoma can be difficult to distinguish from other poorly different sarcomas. Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPAR-gamma) is ...

Alveolar soft-part sarcoma is a highly vascular soft-tissue tumor that is uniformly malignant. It comprises less than 1 per cent of all soft-tissue sarcomas. Patients with alveolar soft-part sarcoma most frequently are aged 15 to 35 years, and the soft tissues of the lower extremities typically are affected. In the ...

Kaposi sarcoma (KS) is a multifocal, vascular lesion of low-grade malignant potential that presents most frequently in mucocutaneous sites. KS also commonly involves lymph nodes and visceral organs. This article deals with the manifestation of KS in unusual anatomic regions. Unusual locations of KS involvement include the musculoskeletal system, central ...

Hibernoma is a rare, benign, slow-growing soft tissue tumor. It was named after its resemblance to the brown fat found in hibernating animals. Due to its rich vascularity and magnetic resonance appearance, this tumor may mimic a liposarcoma before tissue diagnosis. Complete resection with meticulous hemostasis is enough for treatment. ...

OBJECTIVE: Determine MRI features to differentiate between benign and malignant lesions. MATERIAL AND METHOD: The Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) taken in the 5-year period (2003-2007) of 85 patients with benign and malignant soft tissue masses were analyzed. The criteria for discrimination were based on size, origin, signal homogeneity on T1- ...

It has been stated that regulation of the development of the iliac bone is different from that of the ischium and pubis. There are well-known clinical syndromes concerned with hypoplasia of ischiopubic bone, such as small patella syndrome, nail-patella syndrome, ischiopubic-patellar hypoplasia, and ischiopubic hypoplasia. A fit and otherwise healthy ...

Synovial sarcoma is a characteristic subtype of soft tissue sarcomas with a predilection for young people. There may be a long delay in diagnosis or misdiagnosis, because of its insidious growth, varied presentation on imaging studies and associated joint pain, which can be confused with trauma. Diagnosis requires a tissue ...

Clinical and radiographic data provide important information in the evaluation of soft tissue lesions/neoplasms. Morphologic tissue and cytologic examination is considered to be a necessary part of the diagnostic work-up. The standard procedure for obtaining tumor tissue for morphologic evaluation has been incisional (open) or core needle biopsy. An increasing ...

Epithelioid sarcoma is a rare soft tissue tumour presenting two main variants: the 'classical' distal type and the more recently described proximal type. The latter is distinguished from the former by occurrence in elderly patients, more axial and deep location, prominent atypical and pleomorphic appearance and eventually aggressive clinical behaviour ...

Primary pericardial synovial sarcoma is an extremely rare tumor. The awkward tumor site and clinical features associated with quite advanced disease at presentation make obtaining adequate biopsy material challenging. Ambiguous histologic features may also make diagnosis difficult. We present a case of a 15-year-old patient with an original diagnosis of ...
