Carcino-sarcoma of the urinary bladder with cartilaginous differentiation : About a case report

We report a case of a 61 year-old-male who presented a terminal hematuria. Ultrasounds revealed a mass at the dome and the right of urinary bladder. A transurethral resection of the bladder tumor was performed. A pathological examination revealed a pT1 hight grade carciono-sarcoma of the urinary bladder with cartilaginous differentiation. Cystoprostatectomy with Bricker diversion and lymph node dissection were performed. The pathological examination of the surgical specimen revealed no residual tumor lesion.

BlundellSummaryA neutered female domestic shorthaired cat was presented for a rapidly growing left cervical mass and a 6-month history of primary hyperthyroidism. Cytological examination of the mass was consistent with a sarcoma. Due to poor clinical response the cat was humanely destroyed and a post-mortem examination was performed. This revealed a markedly enlarged, irregularly shaped left thyroid gland with signs of infiltration of the trachea. The contralateral (right) thyroid w...

Carcinosarcomas are rare malignant tumors derived of both epithelial and mesenchymal elements. Herein, we report an elderly man originally diagnosed with a squamous cell carcinoma of the hand. Upon excision, the tumor was found to be a more aggressive carcinosarcoma. Immunohistochemical stains revealed that the sarcoma component of the lesion was vimentin positive, whereas the primary carcinoma tumor cells were positive for p63 and CK903. Both components were negative for CD34 and D2-40. This tumor was found to have angiolymphatic invasion and eventually metastasized to the axillary lymph nodes and lungs.

Ong Guia Palacios Endometrial carcinosarcoma (ECS) represents one of the most extreme examples of tumor heterogeneity among human cancers. ECS is a clinically aggressive, high-grade, metaplastic carcinoma. At the morphological level, intratumor heterogeneity in ECS is due to an admixture of epithelial (carcinoma) and mesenchymal (sarcoma) components that can include heterologous tissues, such as skeletal muscle, cartilage, or bone. Most ECSs belong to the copy-number high serous-like molecular subtype of endometrial carcinoma, characterized by the TP53 mutation and the frequently accompanied by a large number of ...

ConclusionsPrimary carcinosarcoma of the bone is an extremely rare malignancy. Early diagnosis is crucial as localized disease may be curable with resection. As shown in this case, combination chemotherapy with gemcitabine and docetaxel is a potential option in patients with unresectable or metastatic disease.

Authors: Matsubayashi H, Matsui T, Sugiura T, Makuuchi R, Kaneko J, Satoh J, Satoh T, Fujie S, Ishiwatari H, Sasaki K, Ono H Abstract Pancreatobiliary maljunction (PBM) is a rare congenital malformation, often associated with adenocarcinoma. However, PBM accompanying gallbladder carcinosarcoma has rarely been reported. A 72-year-old woman was referred to our hospital, complaining of abdominal pain. Computed tomography showed a polypoid mass in the gallbladder. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography showed PBM, and aspirated bile demonstrated elevated levels of pancreatic-type amylase (26,780 U/L) and cancer...

CONCLUSIONS: The proportion of malignancy is low after using morcellation in patients who undergo laparoscopic myomectomy. Patients with fast-growing uterine fibroids and abnormal ultrasonic tumor blood flow should be considered for malignant potential, and morcellation should be avoided.

Publication date: July 2017 Source:Urology Case Reports, Volume 13 Author(s): Charles D. Viers, Subodh M. Lele, Tara Kirkpatrick, Chad A. LaGrange Spermatic cord tumors (SCTs) are rare neoplasms with 80% exhibiting benign pathology. Of the malignant SCTs, 90% are sarcomas. To date there has only been one documented case of primary CS of the spermatic cord which occurred in a 40 year old with no reported medical history. A 76-year-old male with a history of biopsy proven Gleason score 7 (3 + 4) prostatic adenocarcinoma underwent external beam radiation therapy (7920 cGy) in 44 fractions in 2004. He...

AbstractUterine myometrial tumors are predominantly benign conditions that affect one-third of women and represent the main indication for hysterectomy. Preoperative imaging is of utmost importance for characterization and for precise mapping of myometrial tumors to best guide therapeutic strategy. New minimally invasive therapeutic strategies including morcellation, myolysis, uterine artery embolization and image-guided radiofrequency or focused ultrasound ablation have been developed for the treatment of uterine leiomyoma. However, preoperative differentiation between atypical leiomyomas and leiomyosarcomas is critical o...
