PMID:  14705740     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Intracranial occurrence of follicular dendritic cell (FDC) sarcoma, a rare tumor derived from dendritic cells of the lymphoid follicle, has not yet been described. Therefore, the case of a 53-year-old man presenting with an intracranial mass invading the clivus is reported. The diagnosis of FDC sarcoma was confirmed by immunohistochemical staining for dendritic cell markers, that is, CD21, CD23, and CD35. Due to some similarities with meningioma, intracranial FDC sarcoma might be an underdiagnosed disease.
