Bevacizumab is an effective treatment for symptomatic cerebral necrosis after carbon ion therapy for recurrent intracranial malignant tumours: A case report.

Mol Clin Oncol 2022 Jul 19;17(1):114. Epub 2022 May 19.

The First School of Clinical Medicine, Lanzhou University, Lanzhou, Gansu 730000, P.R. China.

Carbon ion therapy (CIT) is a form of particle therapy, which not only spares normal tissues but may also improve local control of recurrent intracranial tumours. Cerebral radiation necrosis (RN) is one of the most serious adverse reactions of recurrent brain tumours following reirradiation, which may lead to neurological decline or even death. Bevacizumab is an anti-vascular endothelial growth factor antibody, which has been used to treat symptomatic RN. Read More

Novel Radioiodinated and Radiofluorinated Analogues of FT-2102 for SPECT or PET Imaging of mIDH1 Mutant Tumours.

Molecules 2022 Jun 11;27(12). Epub 2022 Jun 11.

Université Clermont Auvergne, Inserm, Imagerie Moléculaire et Stratégies Théranostiques, UMR 1240, F-63000 Clermont-Ferrand, France.

Isocitrate dehydrogenases (IDHs) are metabolic enzymes commonly mutated in human cancers (glioma, acute myeloid leukaemia, chondrosarcoma, and intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma). These mutated variants of IDH (mIDH) acquire a neomorphic activity, namely, conversion of α-ketoglutarate to the oncometabolite D-2-hydroxyglutarate involved in tumourigenesis. Thus, mIDHs have emerged as highly promising therapeutic targets, and several mIDH specific inhibitors have been developed. Read More

Clinical usefulness of 2-hydroxyglutarate as a biomarker in IDH-mutant chondrosarcoma.

J Bone Oncol 2022 Jun 16;34:100430. Epub 2022 Apr 16.

Department of Musculoskeletal Oncology and Rehabilitation, National Cancer Center Hospital, Tokyo, Japan.

Background: Chondrosarcoma is a common form of malignant bone tumor with limited treatment options. Approximately half of chondrosarcomas harbor gain-of-function mutations in isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH), and mutant IDH produces 2-hydroxyglutarate (2-HG), which is an oncometabolite that contributes to malignant transformation. Therefore, inhibiting 2-HG production is a novel and promising treatment for advanced chondrosarcoma. Read More

Artificial intelligence significantly improves the diagnostic accuracy of deep myxoid soft tissue lesions in histology.

Sci Rep 2022 04 28;12(1):6965. Epub 2022 Apr 28.

Department of Pathology, CUHK Medical Centre, 9 Chak Cheung Street, Shatin, New Territories, HKSAR, Hong Kong.

Deep myxoid soft tissue lesions have posed a diagnostic challenge for pathologists due to significant histological overlap and regional heterogeneity, especially when dealing with small biopsies which have profoundly low accuracy. However, accurate diagnosis is important owing to difference in biological behaviors and response to adjuvant therapy, that will guide the extent of surgery and the need for neo-adjuvant therapy. Herein, we trained two convolutional neural network models based on a total of 149,130 images representing diagnoses of extra skeletal myxoid chondrosarcoma, intramuscular myxoma, low-grade fibromyxoid sarcoma, myxofibrosarcoma and myxoid liposarcoma.

Rare presentation of intra-spinal extradural grade 1 chondrosarcoma: A case report.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2022 May 29;94:106985. Epub 2022 Mar 29.

Hamad Medical Corporation, Doha, Qatar.

Introduction: Lumbar Spine Chondrosarcomas are rare entities that accounts for less than 10% of all spinal Chondrosarcomas, patients can present with symptoms of nerve root irritation secondary to direct compression caused by the tumor mass effect. Radiologically these tumors are destructive in nature with soft tissues classifications, and the treatment of choice for it is complete surgical excision, however in some scenarios they are difficult to access and complete resection becomes not feasible.

Presentation Of Case: A 37 years old male, presented to our spine clinic with chief complaint of chronic low back pain with radicular symptoms, normal power in both lower limbs, while his radiological evaluation showed intra-spinal extra-dural Chondrosarcoma arising from the posterior cortex of the 5th vertebral body, for which he underwent surgical decompression of the lumbar canal with resection of the lesion and unilateral stabilization of the spinal segment.

Multimodal Intraoperative Image-Driven Surgery for Skull Base Chordomas and Chondrosarcomas.

Cancers (Basel) 2022 Feb 15;14(4). Epub 2022 Feb 15.

Department of Neurosurgery, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA 02115, USA.

Given the difficulty and importance of achieving maximal resection in chordomas and chondrosarcomas, all available tools offered by modern neurosurgery are to be deployed for planning and resection of these complex lesions. As demonstrated by the review of our series of skull base chordoma and chondrosarcoma resections in the Advanced Multimodality Image-Guided Operating (AMIGO) suite, as well as by the recently published literature, we describe the use of advanced multimodality intraoperative imaging and neuronavigation as pivotal to successful radical resection of these skull base lesions while preventing and managing eventual complications.
