Undifferentiated round cell sarcoma with BCOR internal tandem duplications (ITD) or YWHAE fusions: a clinicopathologic and molecular study.

Mod Pathol 2020 May 5. Epub 2020 May 5.

Department of Pathology, Hospital Bambino Gesu, Rome, Italy.

Until recently, undifferentiated round cell sarcomas (URCS) in infants have been considered a wastebasket diagnosis, composed of various pathologic entities and lacking consistent genetic alterations. The recent identification of recurrent BCOR internal tandem duplications (ITD) and less common alternative YWHAE-NUTM2B/E fusions in half of infantile URCS and the majority of so-called primitive myxoid mesenchymal tumors of infancy (PMMTI) suggests a common pathogenesis with clear cell sarcoma of the kidney which also harbors the same genetic alterations. These tumors also share a similar morphology and immunoprofile, including positivity for BCOR, cyclin D1, and SATB2. Read More

Res Rep Urol 2019 13;11:311-317. Epub 2019 Nov 13.

Oncology Practice, Hyatt Medical Center, Amman, Jordan.

Several case reports have provided most of the information available on perivascular epithelioid cell tumors, but with no consensus regarding diagnosis or treatment paradigms. Sunitinb is a VEGFR multitargeted tyrosine-kinase inhibitor that is regarded as a first-line treatment of clear cell-type metastatic renal-cell carcinoma after cytoreductive surgery. Our case was a 29-year-old male who presented with a metastatic left renal tumor and underwent left partial nephrectomy followed by adjuvant tyrosine kinase-inhibitor treatment. Read More

 is a gene that encodes for an epigenetic regulator involved in the specification of cell differentiation and body structure development and takes part in the noncanonical polycomb repressive complex 1. This review provides a comprehensive summary of BCOR's involvement in oncology, illustrating that various aberrations, such as the internal tandem duplications of the PCGF Ub-like fold discriminator domain and different gene fusions (mainly ), represent driver elements of various sarcomas such as clear cell sarcoma of the kidney, primitive mesenchymal myxoid tumor of infancy, small round blue cell sarcoma, endometrial stromal sarcoma and histologically heterogeneous CNS neoplasms group with similar genomic methylation patterns known as CNS-HGNET-BCOR. Furthermore, other alterations (often loss of function mutations) recur in a large variety of mesenchymal, epithelial, neural and hematological tumors, suggesting a central role in cancer evolution.

Clear Cell Sarcoma of the Kidney.

Arch Pathol Lab Med 2020 01 27;144(1):119-123. Epub 2019 Mar 27.

From the Division of Anatomical Pathology, University of Cape Town, Cape Town, and the National Health Laboratory Service, Western Cape, South Africa (Drs Aldera and Pillay); the Department of Anatomical Pathology, Groote Schuur Hospital, Western Cape, South Africa (Dr Aldera); and the Department of Anatomical Pathology, Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital, Cape Town, South Africa (Dr Pillay).

Clear cell sarcoma of the kidney is an uncommon malignant pediatric renal neoplasm that typically presents in the 2- to 3-year age group and has a propensity for aggressive behavior and late relapses. Histologically, this tumor exhibits a great diversity of morphologic patterns that can mimic most other pediatric renal neoplasms, often leading to confusion and misdiagnosis. Until recently, adjunct immunohistochemical and molecular genetic tests to support the diagnosis were lacking. Read More

BCOR Overexpression in Renal Malignant Solitary Fibrous Tumors: A Close Mimic of Clear Cell Sarcoma of Kidney.

Am J Surg Pathol 2019 06;43(6):773-782

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

BCOR immunoreactivity is a sensitive and highly specific marker for clear cell sarcoma of the kidney (CCSK). However, a subset of adult renal sarcomas which overexpress BCOR are negative for BCOR genetic alterations, including BCOR gene fusions or BCOR-internal tandem duplication, and thus remain unclassified. We report 5 such undifferentiated renal/perirenal sarcomas which raised the differential diagnosis of CCSK due to their morphologic appearance and strong BCOR immunoreactivity, but which on RNA sequencing proved to be malignant solitary fibrous tumors (SFTs).

Recurrent intragenic rearrangements of EGFR and BRAF in soft tissue tumors of infants.

Nat Commun 2018 06 18;9(1):2378. Epub 2018 Jun 18.

Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, Hinxton, CB10 1SA, UK.

Soft tissue tumors of infancy encompass an overlapping spectrum of diseases that pose unique diagnostic and clinical challenges. We studied genomes and transcriptomes of cryptogenic congenital mesoblastic nephroma (CMN), and extended our findings to five anatomically or histologically related soft tissue tumors: infantile fibrosarcoma (IFS), nephroblastomatosis, Wilms tumor, malignant rhabdoid tumor, and clear cell sarcoma of the kidney. A key finding is recurrent mutation of EGFR in CMN by internal tandem duplication of the kinase domain, thus delineating CMN from other childhood renal tumors. Read More

Delayed Metastasis of Clear Cell Sarcoma of Kidney to Bladder After 7 Disease-Free Years.

Fetal Pediatr Pathol 2018 Apr 6;37(2):126-133. Epub 2018 Mar 6.

a Lauren V. Ackerman Laboratory of Surgical Pathology, Barnes-Jewish Hospital/St. Louis Children's Hospital , Washington University Medical Center , St. Louis , Missouri , USA.

Introduction: Clear cell sarcoma of the kidney (CCSK) is childhood neoplasm with its own distinctive pattern of metastasis and may appear after a disease free interval of 5 years or more.

Materials And Methods: Histopathology and immunohistochemistry were available from the radical nephrectomy and the later partial cystectomy, which was performed after a seven disease-free interval.

Results: The pathologic features of the primary tumor were those of a classic CCSK with a monotypic pattern of uniform rounded to ovoid tumor cells with a background network of delicate blood vessels. Read More

Position paper: Rationale for the treatment of children with CCSK in the UMBRELLA SIOP-RTSG 2016 protocol.

Nat Rev Urol 2018 05 27;15(5):309-319. Epub 2018 Feb 27.

Department of Paediatric Oncology, Princess Máxima Center for Paediatric Oncology, Utrecht, Netherlands.

The International Society of Paediatric Oncology-Renal Tumour Study Group (SIOP-RTSG) has developed a new protocol for the diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up monitoring of childhood renal tumours - the UMBRELLA SIOP-RTSG 2016 protocol (the UMBRELLA protocol). This protocol has been designed to continue international collaboration in the treatment of childhood renal tumours and will be implemented in over 50 different countries. Clear cell sarcoma of the kidney, which is a rare paediatric renal tumour that most commonly occurs in children between 2 and 4 years of age, is specifically addressed in the UMBRELLA protocol.

Dysregulated mitogen-activated protein kinase signalling as an oncogenic basis for clear cell sarcoma of the kidney.

J Pathol 2018 03 23;244(3):334-345. Epub 2018 Jan 23.

School of Medicine, University of Dublin, Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland.

The oncogenic mechanisms and tumour biology underpinning clear cell sarcoma of the kidney (CCSK), the second commonest paediatric renal malignancy, are poorly understood and currently, therapy depends heavily on doxorubicin with cardiotoxic side-effects. Previously, we characterized the balanced t(10;17)(q22;p13) chromosomal translocation, identified at that time as the only recurrent genetic aberration in CCSK. This translocation results in an in-frame fusion of the genes YWHAE (encoding 14-3-3ϵ) and NUTM2, with a somatic incidence of 12%. Read More

CNS high-grade neuroepithelial tumor with BCOR internal tandem duplication: a comparison with its counterparts in the kidney and soft tissue.

Brain Pathol 2018 09 28;28(5):710-720. Epub 2017 Dec 28.

Department of Human Pathology, Gunma University Graduate School of Medicine, Maebashi, Japan.

Central nervous system high-grade neuroepithelial tumors with BCOR alteration (CNS HGNET-BCOR) are a recently reported rare entity, identified as a small fraction of tumors previously institutionally diagnosed as so-called CNS primitive neuroectodermal tumors. Their genetic characteristic is a somatic internal tandem duplication in the 3' end of BCOR (BCOR ITD), which has also been found in clear cell sarcomas of the kidney (CCSK) and soft tissue undifferentiated round cell sarcomas/primitive myxoid mesenchymal tumors of infancy (URCS/PMMTI), and these BCOR ITD-positive tumors have been reported to share similar pathological features. In this study, we performed a clinicopathological and molecular analysis of six cases of CNS HGNET-BCOR, and compared them with their counterparts in the kidney and soft tissue. Read More

BCOR Internal Tandem Duplication in High-grade Uterine Sarcomas.

Am J Surg Pathol 2018 03;42(3):335-341

Department of Pathology, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School.

Endometrial stromal sarcomas (ESSs) are mesenchymal uterine tumors characterized by recurrent genetic events, most commonly chromosomal rearrangements, that create oncogenic gene fusions. High-grade endometrial stromal sarcomas (HG-ESSs), as defined in the 2014 World Health Organization Classification, typically contain oncogenic YWHAE-NUTM2 fusions; however, although not well characterized, there are tumors morphologically overlapping with HG-ESS that do not contain the YWHAE-NUTM2 fusions. These fusions are also found in certain pediatric primitive sarcomas, including clear cell sarcoma of the kidney and soft tissue undifferentiated round cell sarcoma of infancy. Read More

TCF21 hypermethylation regulates renal tumor cell clonogenic proliferation and migration.

Mol Oncol 2018 02 14;12(2):166-179. Epub 2017 Dec 14.

Princess Máxima Center for Pediatric Oncology, Utrecht, The Netherlands.

We recently identified hypermethylation at the gene promoter of transcription factor 21 (TCF21) in clear cell sarcoma of the kidney (CCSK), a rare pediatric renal tumor. TCF21 is a transcription factor involved in tubular epithelial development of the kidney and is a candidate tumor suppressor. As there are no in vitro models of CCSK, we employed a well-established clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) cell line, 786-O, which also manifests high methylation at the TCF21 promoter, with consequent low TCF21 expression.

Clear cell sarcomas of the kidney are characterised by BCOR gene abnormalities, including exon 15 internal tandem duplications and BCOR-CCNB3 gene fusion.

Histopathology 2018 Jan 30;72(2):320-329. Epub 2017 Oct 30.

VIVA-KKH Paediatric Brain and Solid Tumour Laboratory, KK Women's and Children's Hospital, Singapore.

Aims: Clear cell sarcoma of the kidney (CCSK) is a rare paediatric renal malignant tumour. The majority of CCSKs have internal tandem duplications (ITDs) of the BCOR gene, whereas a minority have the YWHAE-NUTM2 gene fusion. A third 'double-negative' (DN) category comprises CCSKs with neither BCOR ITDs nor YWHAE-NUTM2 fusion. Read More

We report 2 primary renal sarcomas demonstrating BCOR-CCNB3 gene fusions that have recently been identified in undifferentiated round cell sarcomas of bone and soft tissue. These neoplasms occurred in male children aged 11 and 12 years, and both were cystic as a result of entrapment and dilatation of native renal tubules. Both cases were composed of variably cellular bland spindle cells with fine chromatin set in myxoid stroma and separated by a branching capillary vasculature. Read More
