Benign soft tissue tumors in children.

Benign soft tissue tumors in children. Orthop Clin North Am. 2013 Jul;44(3):433-44 Authors: Thacker MM Abstract Soft tissue masses in children are common, yet can pose a diagnostic dilemma for the orthopedic surgeon who is asked to evaluate them. Although most lesions are dysplastic or benign, some soft tissue sarcomas are seen in the pediatric population. An understanding of the clinical presentation and imaging findings can guide the surgeon decide on the need for a biopsy and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.

Authors: Mustapar N, Zawawi MSF, Tuan Sharif SE Abstract BACKGROUND: Diagnosis of malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (MPNST) is rather challenging due to its divergent morphologic heterogeneity and lack of specific ancillary test. The emergence of H3K27 trimethylation (H3K27me3) as a new immunohistochemistry (IHC) marker for MPNST have recently available to assist pathologists in differentiating MPNST from other histologic mimics. We aim to study the expression pattern of H3K27me3 in MPNST and its histologic mimickers and their association with the clinicopathological data. METHODOLOGY: A total of 59 benig...

This study aimed to perform a time ‐lapse analysis of tumor response in patients with STS treated with trabectedin from 2 phase II clinical trials.We examined 66 patients with translocation ‐related sarcoma registered in 2 Japanese phase II clinical trials. All patients previously received standard therapy before the administration of trabectedin at 1.2 mg/m2 every 3  weeks. Imaging evaluation was performed according to the study protocol. The sum of the maximum diameters of the target lesions was calculated and analyzed over time.Among the 66 patients, 9 (13.6%) showed partial response (PR) to trabectedin. H...

arent The Rous sarcoma virus Gag polyprotein transiently traffics through the nucleus, which is required for efficient incorporation of the viral genomic RNA (gRNA) into virus particles. Packaging of gRNA is mediated by two zinc knuckles and basic residues located in the nucleocapsid (NC) domain in Gag. To further examine the role of basic residues located downstream of the zinc knuckles in gRNA encapsidation, we used a gain-of-function approach. We replaced a basic residue cluster essential for gRNA packaging with heterologous basic residue motif (BR) with RNA-binding activity from either the HIV-1 Rev protein (Rev BR...

AbstractPrimary sarcoma of the liver (PSL) is a rare entity accounting for less than 1% of all liver cancers, with unknown aetiology. Several subtypes have been recognized, with histology playing an essential role in patient tailoring and management. We are about to report a case of an unusual PSL, with peculiar morphologic and immunohistochemical properties. A 65-year-old female with a multicystic hepatic lesion underwent surgery due to spontaneous rupture. Pathology revealed dilated bile duct-like structures lined by benign cuboidal/columnar epithelium surrounded by neoplastic proliferation of spindle and epithelioid cel...

AbstractKaposi sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) is the etiologic agent of several malignancies of endothelial and B-cell origin. The fact that latently infected tumor cells in these malignancies do not express classical viral oncogenes suggests that pathogenesis of KSHV-associated disease results from multistep processes that, in addition to constitutive viral gene expression, may require accumulation of cellular alterations. Heritable changes of the epigenome have emerged as an important co-factor that contributes to the pathogenesis of many non-viral cancers. Since KSHV encodes a number of factors that directly or i...

Conclusion TDP-43 has been found to have a key role in oligodendrocyte function and viability, whereas PTB is important in neuronal differentiation, suggesting that altered expression and mislocalization of these RBPs in MS lesions may contribute to the pathogenesis of demyelination and neurodegeneration. Our findings also identify nucleocytoplasmic transport as a target for treatment.
