Low-grade central fibroblastic osteosarcoma may be differentiated from its mimicker desmoplastic fibroma by genetic analysis.

Clin Sarcoma Res 2018 23;8:16. Epub 2018 Aug 23.

Department of Pathology and Medical Biology, University Medical Center Groningen, University of Groningen, P.O. Box 30.001, 9700 RB Groningen, The Netherlands.

Background: We studied two cases of rare fibrous bone tumors, namely desmoplastic fibroma (DF) and low-grade central osteosarcoma (LGCOS) resembling desmoplastic fibroma (DF-like LGCOS). As the clinical presentation, imaging features and histopathology of DF and DF-like LGOS show much overlap, the objective of this study was to investigate the value of cytogenetic analysis, molecular pathology and immunohistochemistry in discrimination of these two mimickers.

Case Presentation: A mutation in (S45F) and nuclear beta-catenin immunostaining were observed in DF. Read More

St. Anna Children's Hospital, Department of Paediatrics, Medical University Vienna and Children's Cancer Research Institute CCRI, Vienna, Austria.

Osteosarcoma, a bone cancer most commonly seen in adolescents and young adults, is usually a high-grade malignancy characterized by a very high risk for the development of pulmonary metastases. High-grade osteosarcomas are usually treated by preoperative and postoperative chemotherapy and surgery, with a very limited number of active agents available. Rarer lower-grade variants such as parosteal and periosteal osteosarcoma or low-grade central osteosarcoma are treated by surgery only. Read More

Denosumab-treated Giant Cell Tumor of Bone Exhibits Morphologic Overlap With Malignant Giant Cell Tumor of Bone.

Am J Surg Pathol 2016 Jan;40(1):72-80

*Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA †Department of Pathology, Miller School of Medicine, Jackson Memorial Hospital, University of Miami, Miami, FL ‡Department of Radiology §Department of Medicine, Division of Oncology ∥Department of Orthopaedics ¶Department of Pathology, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA.

Giant cell tumor (GCT) of bone is a locally aggressive benign neoplasm characterized by an abundance of osteoclastic giant cells that are induced by the neoplastic mononuclear cells; the latter express high levels of receptor activator of nuclear factor κ-B ligand (RANKL). Denosumab, a RANKL inhibitor, which is clinically used to treat GCT, leads to a marked alteration in the histologic appearance of the tumor with giant cell depletion and new bone deposition, leading to substantial histologic overlap with other primary tumors of bone. Most significantly, denosumab-treated GCT (tGCT) with abundant bone deposition may mimic de novo osteosarcoma, or GCT that has undergone malignant transformation. Read More

Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust, Stanmore, Middlesex, UK.

Parosteal osteosarcoma, low-grade central osteosarcoma, and fibrous dysplasia share similar histological features that may pose a diagnostic challenge. The detection of GNAS mutations in primary bone tumors has been useful in clinical practice for diagnosing fibrous dysplasia. However, the recent report of GNAS mutations being detected in a significant proportion of parosteal osteosarcoma challenges the specificity of this mutation. Read More

Diagnostic challenges of low-grade central osteosarcoma of jaw: a literature review.

J Dent (Shiraz) 2015 Jun;16(2):62-7

Student of Dentistry, Dept. of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology, Yazd Dental School, Shahid Sadughi University of Medical Sciences, Yazd, Iran;

Unlabelled: Low Grade Central Osteosarcoma (LGCO) is a rare subtype of osteosarcoma that is less aggressive than conventional osteosarcoma. The importance of LGCO lies in the fact that regarding microscopic and radiographic features, it occasionally simulates some benign jaw lesions and would consequently be misdiagnosed in many patients. The present study was conducted to collect the information and descriptive analyses related to ten cases reported between 1987 and 2010, including a sample reported by the authors emphasizing on diagnostic errors and the prevailing misdiagnosis.

Clinical outcome of low-grade central osteosarcoma and role of CDK4 and MDM2 immunohistochemistry as a diagnostic adjunct.

J Orthop Sci 2015 May 5;20(3):529-37. Epub 2015 Mar 5.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Korea Cancer Center Hospital, 215-4, Gongneung-dong, Nowon-gu, Seoul, 139-706, Korea,

Introduction: Low-grade osteosarcoma encompasses parosteal osteosarcoma (POS) and low-grade central osteosarcoma (LCOS), with LCOS more rare than POS. LCOS is also more likely to be misdiagnosed and inappropriately treated with an intralesional procedure, due to its misleading radiological features and the overlap of its pathological characteristics with those of benign bone tumors. Therefore, as a diagnostic adjunct for LCOS, immunohistochemical assay with murine double-minute type 2 (MDM2) and cyclin-dependent kinase 4 (CDK4) have been tried with controversial results.

MDM2 and CDK4 expression in periosteal osteosarcoma.

Hum Pathol 2015 Apr 31;46(4):549-53. Epub 2014 Dec 31.

Pathology Department, Rizzoli Institute, Bologna, Italy 40136; Department of Pathology, Villa Erbosa Hospital, Bologna, Italy 40129.

Periosteal osteosarcoma is defined by the World Health Organization as an intermediate-grade, malignant, cartilaginous, and bone-forming neoplasm arising on the surface of bone. Unlike other subtypes of osteosarcoma, no data have been published about mouse double minute 2 (MDM2) and cyclin-dependent kinase 4 (CDK4) expression. For this reason, we evaluated the molecular and immunohistochemical features of MDM2 and CDK4 in 27 cases relative to 20 patients with a diagnosis of periosteal osteosarcoma, surgically treated at the Rizzoli Institute between 1981 and 2014.

Activating GNAS mutations in parosteal osteosarcoma.

Am J Surg Pathol 2014 Mar;38(3):402-9

Departments of *Laboratory Medicine and Pathology †Radiology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN.

Parosteal osteosarcoma is a surface-based osteosarcoma that often exhibits deceptively bland cytologic features, hindering diagnosis in small biopsies or when correlative radiologic imaging is not readily available. A number of benign and malignant fibro-osseous lesions, including fibrous dysplasia (FD) and low-grade central osteosarcoma, fall within the morphologic differential diagnosis of parosteal osteosarcoma. Somatic mutations in GNAS, encoding the α-subunit of the heterotrimeric G protein complex (Gsα), occur in FD and McCune-Albright syndrome but have not been reported in parosteal osteosarcoma.

Low-grade central osteosarcoma: a difficult condition to diagnose.

Sarcoma 2012 16;2012:764796. Epub 2012 Jul 16.

The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital Oncology Service, Royal Orthopaedic Hospital, Bristol Road South, Birmingham B31 2AP, UK.

Low-grade central osteosarcoma (LGCO) is a rare variant of osteosarcoma which is difficult to diagnose. If not treated appropriately, the tumour can recur with higher-grade disease. We reviewed our experience of this condition to try and identify factors that could improve both diagnosis and outcome. Read More

Low-grade central osteosarcoma of the orbit.

J Craniofac Surg 2012 May;23(3):e178-80

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Kanazawa Medical University, Ishikawa, Japan.

Low-grade central osteosarcoma is a rare type of osteosarcoma, representing fewer than 2% of all osteosarcomas. Approximately 80% of these tumors are located in the long bones, and they are particularly common in the distal and proximal tibia. However, they are rare in the craniofacial bones, and this tumor type has never been reported to occur in the orbit. Read More

MDM2 and CDK4 immunohistochemistry is a valuable tool in the differential diagnosis of low-grade osteosarcomas and other primary fibro-osseous lesions of the bone.

Mod Pathol 2011 May 18;24(5):624-37. Epub 2011 Feb 18.

Department of Pathology, Trousseau University Hospital and University François Rabelais, Tours Cedex 9, France.

Low-grade osteosarcoma is a rare malignancy that may be subdivided into two main subgroups on the basis of location in relation to the bone cortex, that is, parosteal osteosarcoma and low-grade central osteosarcoma. Their histological appearance is quite similar and characterized by spindle cell stroma with low-to-moderate cellularity and well-differentiated anastomosing bone trabeculae. Low-grade osteosarcomas have a simple genetic profile with supernumerary ring chromosomes comprising amplification of chromosome 12q13-15, including the cyclin-dependent kinase 4 (CDK4) and murine double-minute type 2 (MDM2) gene region.

Imaging characteristics of primary osteosarcoma: nonconventional subtypes.

Radiographics 2010 Oct;30(6):1653-72

Department of Radiology, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY 10065, USA.

Osteosarcoma (OS) is a common primary malignant tumor of bone that produces osteoid matrix. According to the World Health Organization, OS of bone is classified into eight subtypes with distinct biologic behaviors and clinical outcomes: conventional, telangiectatic, small cell, low-grade central, secondary, parosteal, periosteal, and high-grade surface. Imaging plays a crucial role in the diagnosis of each subtype of OS and ultimately in patients' survival because the diagnosis is based on a combination of histopathologic and imaging features.

Well-differentiated liposarcoma with low-grade osteosarcomatous component: an underrecognized variant.

Am J Surg Pathol 2010 Sep;34(9):1361-6

Clinical Laboratory Division, National Cancer Center Hospital, Tokyo, Japan.

Mature bone formation in well-differentiated liposarcoma and dedifferentiated liposarcoma has been described as a reactive or "metaplastic" change in most reports, and its neoplastic nature has not been widely appreciated. We herein describe 9 cases of well-differentiated/dedifferentiated liposarcoma with distinct areas of fibroosseous tissue histologically indistinguishable from low-grade osteosarcomas, that is, parosteal osteosarcoma or low-grade central osteosarcoma. The tumors affected middle-aged to elderly patients, and occurred in the retroperitoneum and deep soft tissue of the extremities without connection to the skeletal system. Read More

Expression of heat shock proteins in osteosarcomas.

Pathology 2010 ;42(5):421-5

Department of Pathology, School of Medicine, Kyung Hee University, Seoul, Korea.

Aims: Heat shock proteins (HSPs) protect cells against stress-associated injuries and are overexpressed in several malignant tumours. We investigated the potential roles of HSP27, HSP60, and HSP70 in conventional and low grade central osteosarcoma.

Methods: Expressions of HSP27, HSP60, and HSP70 were analysed using immunohistochemistry on tissue sections from 52 cases of conventional osteosarcoma and 21 cases of low grade central osteosarcoma. Read More

Immunohistochemical analysis of MDM2 and CDK4 distinguishes low-grade osteosarcoma from benign mimics.

Mod Pathol 2010 Sep 2;23(9):1279-88. Epub 2010 Jul 2.

Clinical Laboratory Division, National Cancer Center Hospital, Tokyo, Japan.

Parosteal osteosarcoma and low-grade central osteosarcoma are two types of low-grade osteosarcoma that show similar clinical behaviors, histological features, and genetic background (ie, amplified sequences of 12q13-15, including MDM2 and CDK4). Low-grade osteosarcoma is often confused with benign lesions, and ancillary techniques to enhance diagnostic accuracy have been awaited. This study explores the use of MDM2 and CDK4 immunohistochemistry for the histological diagnosis of low-grade osteosarcoma. Read More

Gan To Kagaku Ryoho 2009 Feb;36(2):199-203

Dept. of Orthopaedic Surgery and Musculoskeletal Oncology, Tokyo Metropolitan Komagome Hospital, Tokyo, Japan.

In high-grade musculoskeletal sarcomas, adjuvant chemotherapy is often performed to prevent distant metastases. As the efficacy of chemotherapy varies according to the histological type of sarcoma, its indication is determined according to the histological type and the stage. Prognoses are poor in patients with osteosarcoma, Ewing's sarcoma, or rhabdomyosarcoma, when surgery alone is performed. Read More

Low grade central osteosarcoma--a diagnostic dilemma.

Joint Bone Spine 2008 Oct 23;75(5):613-5. Epub 2008 May 23.

Department of Orthopedics and Pathology, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Ansari Nagar, Flat No. 3221 Ground Floor, Sector-A, PKT-B & C, Vasant Kunj, New Delhi 110070, India.

Low grade central osteosarcoma is a rare primary bone tumor. This fibro-osseous lesion shares some radiological and histopathological resemblance with fibrous dysplasia, which is a more common entity. Thus it may be mistaken as fibrous dysplasia and may receive inadequate treatment resulting in a more malignant recurrent bone tumor. Read More
