Background: Hemangiopericytoma (HPC), also known as solitary fibrous tumor (SFT), is a type of soft tissue sarcoma with a special aggressive behavior. The HPC/SFT is locally aggressive with possibility of late recurrence locally or distant extraneural metastasis. The most common location of this HPC/SFT is the lower extremities. Read More

Background: The occurrence of extraneural metastasis in patients diagnosed with glioblastoma (GBM) is rare with an estimated incidence ranging from 0.4% to 2.0%. Read More

Extraneural metastases of glioblastoma (GBM), although rare, are becoming an increasingly recognized occurrence. Currently, the biological mechanism underlying this rare occurrence is not understood. To explore the potential genomic drivers of extraneural metastasis in GBM, we present the molecular features of 4 extraneural metastatic GBMs, along with a comprehensive review and analysis of previously reported cases that had available molecular characterization.

Introduction: Extraneural/-cranial metastases (ENM) of primary central nervous system (CNS) tumors are rare and may be diagnostically challenging. We describe the cytomorphological and pertinent clinical features of ENM in a case series assessed by fine-needle aspiration (FNA). A search of the laboratory information systems of 2 tertiary care centers in Toronto (2000-2015) was performed. Read More
