Clear cell chondrosarcoma of proximal femur: a rare entity with diagnostic dilemma.

BMJ Case Rep 2020 Oct 29;13(10). Epub 2020 Oct 29.

Radiology, Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute and Research Centre, New Delhi, Delhi, India.

Clear cell chondrosarcoma is an extremely rare malignant neoplasm. The rarity and slow-growing nature of this tumour often lead to prolonged symptoms and also initial misdiagnosis with benign lesions such as chondroblastoma. It can also be confused with avascular necrosis of the femoral head when the lesion is located in the femoral head, as was in the case we report. Read More

Clear-cell chondrosarcomas: Fine-needle aspiration cytology, radiological findings, and patient demographics of a rare entity.

Diagn Cytopathol 2021 Jan 12;49(1):46-53. Epub 2020 Aug 12.

Department of Clinical Pathology and Cytology, Karolinska University Hospital, Solna, Stockholm, Sweden.

Background: Clear-cell chondrosarcomas (CCCSs) constitute a very rare subtype of chondrosarcoma. CCCS may radiologically mimic chondroblastoma, and given the difference in surgical approach, it is important to distinguish these two entities preoperatively.

Design: Using the institutional digital records, we identified histologically verified CCCS between 1996 and 2013, where preoperative fine-needle aspiration (FNA) cytology was available. Read More

[Treatment of chondroblastoma of the humeral head : A tumour- and shoulder-orthopaedic challenge].

Orthopade 2020 Dec;49(12):1098-1102

Klinik für Allgemeine Orthopädie und Tumororthopädie, Universitätsklinikum Münster, Albert-Schweitzer-Campus 1, 48149, Münster, Deutschland.

We present the case of a 22-year-old female patient with chondroblastoma in the right humeral head. To allow a gentle and anatomic resurfacing of the humeral joint surface and to avoid total joint arthroplasty in our young patient with high functional requirements, we implanted a HemiCAP® after intralesional curettage of the chondroblastoma. Our patient's excellent short-term functional outcome shows that our approach can be considered a very good therapeutic option. Read More

Pediatric Chondroblastoma and the Need for Lung Staging at Presentation.

J Pediatr Orthop 2020 Oct;40(9):e894-e897

Hospital Italiano de Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Purpose: Chondroblastoma is a benign, but potentially locally aggressive, bone tumor with predilection for the epiphysis of long bones in growing children. Historically, there is a reported 2% risk of lung metastasis, however these cases are mostly in the form of isolated single reports and the vast majority in adults. The purpose of this study was to identify the "true" risk of lung metastases at presentation in skeletally immature patients with a benign chondroblastoma, and therefore revisit the need for routine chest staging.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Osaka University Graduate School of Medicine, 2-2, Yamadaoka, Suita, Osaka, 565-0871, Japan.

Background: Chondroblastoma (CB) is a rare locally aggressive bone tumor that commonly occurs in the epiphysis or apophysis of long bones. Although surgical treatment of CB carries potential risk for physeal or articular cartilage damage, risk factors for joint degeneration have not been well described. In addition, we have mainly used synthetic bone substitute (SBS) to fill the bone defect after intralesional curettage as treatment for CB. Read More

[Molecular pathology in the diagnosis of bone tumors: current concepts].

Pathologe 2020 Mar;41(2):106-115

Knochentumor-Referenzzentrum, Institut für Pathologie, Universitätsspital Basel, Universität Basel, Schönbeinstrasse 40, Basel, 4031, Schweiz.

The integrative evaluation of histology and corresponding imaging is essential for the classification of bone tumors. Until a few years ago, there were hardly any molecular markers that could be used for diagnostic purposes. However, exome- and genome-wide sequencing analyses have since uncovered a number of tumor-specific aberrations that can be very helpful in ambiguous cases. Read More

Immunohistochemical analysis of 36 cases of chondroblastomas: A single institutional experience.

Ann Diagn Pathol 2020 Feb 13;44:151440. Epub 2019 Dec 13.

Department of Surgical Oncology (Bone and Soft Tissues, DMG), Tata Memorial Centre, HBNI University, Parel, Mumbai 400012, India.

Chondroblastoma is a relatively uncommon, primary benign bone tumor, frequently identified in young individuals. Despite its classical radiologic and histopathological features, at times, it is fraught with a diagnostic challenge, especially differentiating it from a giant cell tumor of bone (GCTB); an osteosarcoma and a chondrosarcoma. Lately, few studies have shown the diagnostic utility of immunohistochemical (IHC) expression DOG1 antibody in chondroblastomas. Read More

Tenosynovial Giant Cell Tumor, Localized Type With Extensive Chondroid Metaplasia: A Case Report With Immunohistochemical and Molecular Genetic Analysis.

Int J Surg Pathol 2020 Jun 26;28(4):447-453. Epub 2019 Nov 26.

Shimane University, Izumo, Shimane, Japan.

Tenosynovial giant cell tumor (TSGCT) of localized type is a common disease occurring mostly in the hands. Diagnosis of this tumor is relatively easy to render with hematoxylin-eosin-stained sections as compared with that of TSGCT of diffuse type. However, very rare cases with chondroid metaplasia that have recently been reported mainly in diffuse type can make pathological differentiation from soft tissue cartilaginous tumors extremely difficult.

Clinical and molecular characterization of primary sclerosing epithelioid fibrosarcoma of bone and review of the literature.

Genes Chromosomes Cancer 2020 04 15;59(4):217-224. Epub 2019 Nov 15.

Department of Pathology, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, New York.

Sclerosing epithelioid fibrosarcoma (SEF) is a rare sarcoma subtype characterized by monomorphic epithelioid cells embedded in a densely sclerotic collagenous matrix. The overwhelming majority of tumors arise in soft tissues; however, rare cases have been documented to occur primarily in bone. The hallmarks of soft tissue SEF include MUC4 immunoreactivity and the presence of an EWSR1-CREB3L1 fusion. Read More
