Primary epithelioid angiosarcoma of the temporal bone with initial presentation of otalgia.

Primary epithelioid angiosarcoma of the temporal bone with initial presentation of otalgia. Proc (Bayl Univ Med Cent). 2018 Jan;31(1):84-87 Authors: Ai D, Zreik RT, Harris FS, Hill G, Shan Y Abstract Primary angiosarcoma of the bone is exceedingly rare. Here, we report a case of epithelioid angiosarcoma arising from the right temporal bone in a 57-year-old woman who presented with otalgia that was refractory to conventional treatment.

Primary hepatic angiosarcoma was diagnosed in a 59-year-old woman who presented an arthralgia of limbs and dry cough for 6 weeks. Physical examination revealed digital clubbing. A 99mTc-MDP bone scintigraphy showed diffusely increased uptake along the cortical margins of long bones, suggesting hypertrophic osteoarthropathy.

Some patients with splenic angiosarcoma initially manifest thrombocytopenia owing to hypersplenism or tumor-related bone marrow fibrosis. The diagnosis of bone marrow metastasis in patients with splenic angiosarcoma is challenging, as the presentation mimics idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura or primary myelofibrosis. Our case showed diffuse FDG uptake in the vertebral bodies, sacroiliac bone, humerus, femur, and clavicles. It was pathologically diagnosed as bone marrow metastasis of splenic angiosarcoma. We believe that the heterogeneous FDG accumulation in the bone marrow, although nonspecific, can be useful for the dia...

GL Abstract Femoral artery is the most common vascular access site used for angiographic interventions. Various complications such as hematoma, bleeding, dissection, arteriovenous fistula and pseudoaneurysm have been described following iatrogenic puncture. However, angiosarcoma formation at the access site is very uncommon and it poses a diagnostic dilemma due to its resemblance to organized hematoma. A 75-year-old patient who had undergone coronary angiography has suffered from an angiosarcoma and its vascular complications due to local invasion at the puncture site. Although the tumor was completely excised an...

For the majority of these diseases, the molecular understanding of the basis of their initiation and progression remains unclear. As such, limited clinical progress in prognosis or therapeutic regimens have been made over the past few decades. Proteomics techniques are being increasingly utilised in the field of sarcoma research. Proteomic research efforts h...

This study aimed to analyze AS prognostic factors in a large nationwide cohort of histologically confirmed cases, established through linkage of clinical data from the Netherlands Cancer Registry and pathology data from the Dutch pathology registry (PALGA). All cases were reviewed by an expert pathologist, showing a 16% discordance rate. Multivariable Cox regression survival analysis among 479 confirmed AS patients revealed remarkably poorer overall survival (OS) for primary AS compared to secondary AS (7 vs 21 months, Hazard ratio (HR) = 1.5; 95% confidence interval (CI) = 1.2–1.9). Age above 65 years, male gend...

In this study, we investigated the clinicopathological and molecular features of 26 AHs. By Sanger sequencing and MassARRAY analysis, mutually exclusive mutations in exon 5 ofGNAQ,GNA11, andGNA14 were identified in 10, 5, and 5 tumors, respectively, of the 22 investigated tumors, with an overall mutation rate of 91%. No notable differences in the clinicopathological features were observed betweenGNAQ-,GNA11-, orGNA14-mutated tumors. Our results implicatedGNA11 mutations, as well as previously known mutations of its paraloguesGNAQ andGNA14, as essential drivers in the pathogenesis of AH.
