A rare case of giant intraperitoneal lipoma in patient with nodular fasciitis: image 18f-fdg pet / ct.

A RARE CASE OF GIANT INTRAPERITONEAL LIPOMA IN PATIENT WITH NODULAR FASCIITIS: IMAGE 18F-FDG PET / CT. J Nucl Med Technol. 2019 Apr 24;: Authors: Ibañez Ibañez MJ, Reyes Marles RR, Frutos Esteban L, Claver Valderas MA Abstract Nodular fasciitis is a benign reactive proliferation of myofibroblasts but sometimes misdiagnosed as sarcoma based on cellularity, mitotic figures and rapid growth. On the other hand, giant intraperitoneal lipomas are very rare cases and most of them are reported as liposarcoma because their large size; although liposarcoma is only 0.1% of all human neoplasms, is the most common histology subtype of retroperitoneal soft tissue sarcomas. This paper report on a case in whom these tumors concur, who underwent whole body 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) PET / CT, which discriminated the benign nature of both lesions. 18F-FDG PET / CT plays a fundamental role in the differentiation of benign and malignant lesions, as well as in the detection of unsuspected lesions.

To clarify such unknown mechanisms, we have established a new ex vivo mouse model for synovial sarcoma, using retrovirus-mediated gene transfer of SS18-SSX1 to mouse embryonic mesenchymal cells followed by subcutaneous transplantation into nude mice. This approach successfully induced subcutaneous tumors in 100% of recipients, showing invasive proli...

Authors: Hayashi D, Shirai T, Terauchi R, Tsuchida S, Mizoshiri N, Mori Y, Arai Y, Mazda O, Kubo T Abstract Fibrosarcoma is a soft tissue sarcoma that is classified as a rare cancer. Therefore, no standard anti-tumor drug therapy has been established for fibrosarcoma. Although pristimerin (PM) has been reported to exert an anti-tumor effect on various types of cancer, no studies have examined the therapeutic effect of PM on soft tissue sarcoma. The purpose of the current study was to investigate the anti-tumor effect of PM on human fibrosarcoma cells (HT1080). The present study examined the cell viability, IC50 val...

AbstractPurposeThe aim of the study was to develop a patient-reported outcome measure for patients with sarcoma —the Sarcoma Assessment Measure (SAM).Methods and resultsThe systematic development of SAM included a three-stage, mixed-methods study using semi-structured interviews, focus groups and questionnaires, with all stages involving patients from across the United Kingdom. In-depth interviews were conducted with 121 patients (50% male; aged 13 –82; with soft tissue sarcoma (62%), bone tumours (28%) and gastrointestinal stromal tumours (10%)). Content analysis of the interview transcripts identified 1415 po...

Abstract Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (MPNST) is a rare malignant soft tissue tumor that accounts for approximately 5% of all soft tissue sarcomas. This tumor originates from the peripheral nerves and occurs mainly in the limbs, head and neck, and spine. As a more aggressive tumor, it has higher recurrence and metastasis rates, and patient prognosis is poor. MPNST has a variety of histologic subtypes such as classic MPNST and epithelioid malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors (EMPNSTs). Due to the diversity of histologic types, these tumors have a high histologic similarity to other benign and maligna...

Abstract Lipid droplets, a morphological feature of adipocytic tumors, are strongly regulated by associated proteins of the perilipin/PAT-family. So far, the use of perilipins as markers for differential diagnosis of soft tissue tumors has only been studied in a few cases. The aim of the study was to investigate the expression of perilipins in 478 human soft tissue tumors as well as 60 respective normal tissues. All cases of well differentiated liposarcoma, over 90% of myxoid round cell liposarcoma and over 70% of pleomorphic liposarcoma, yet only in the well differentiated components of dedifferentiated liposarco...

Authors: Fricke A, Cimniak AFV, Ullrich PV, Becherer C, Bickert C, Pfeifer D, Heinz J, Stark GB, Bannasch H, Braig D, Eisenhardt SU Abstract BACKGROUND: Liposarcoma constitute about 13% of all soft tissue sarcoma and are associated with a high risk of metastases. As the preoperative differentiation between benign and malign lipomatous tumors is restricted to magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography and biopsy, we performed a miRNA array to distinguish dedifferentiated liposarcoma patients from healthy controls and lipoma patients. METHODS: Blood samples of patients with dedifferentiated liposarcoma, heal...

Authors: Edagawa M, Haratake N, Shimamatsu S, Toyozawa R, Nosaki K, Hirai F, Yamaguchi M, Taguchi K, Kaneko K, Seto T, Takenoyama M, Ichinose Y Abstract Liposarcomas are the most common type of mesenchymal neoplasm in soft tissue sarcomas. Although they frequently develop at the lower limbs or retroperitoneum, cases arising from the mediastinum are rare. Furthermore, the incidence of the inflammatory subtype of well-differentiated liposarcoma is known to be low. We experienced a case of a middle mediastinal liposarcoma in a 68-year-old woman. The tumor, which was completely resected, was 92 mm in diameter. The tumo...

Aim: To establish the accuracy of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in distinguishing between benign and malignant lipomatous tumors; to evaluate the reproducibility of the MRI interpretation assessing the agreement between judgments of two radiologists with the same experience in soft-tissue sarcomas; to identify an association among MRI findings (size, depth, septa, nodules, signal homogeneity) and nature of the lesion. Materials and Methods: A total of 54 patients (28 men and 26 women), with a mean age of 56 (range=27-84) were included years. All subjects followed-up by the Multidisciplinary Sarcoma Group. The following ...
