Clear Cell Sarcoma of the Kidney.

Arch Pathol Lab Med 2019 Mar 27. 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 which 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 Mar 8. Epub 2019 Mar 8.

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).

The diagnostic accuracy and clinical utility of pediatric renal tumor biopsy: Report of the UK experience in the SIOP UK WT 2001 trial.

Pediatr Blood Cancer 2019 Jun 13;66(6):e27627. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Department of Cellular Pathology, University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, UK.

Introduction: The International Society of Paediatric Oncology (SIOP) protocols recommend preoperative chemotherapy appropriate for Wilms tumors (WTs) in children with renal tumors aged ≥6 months, reserving biopsy for "atypical" cases. The Children's Cancer and Leukaemia Group (CCLG) joined the SIOP-WT-2001 study but continued the national practice of biopsy at presentation.

Method: Retrospective study of concordance between locally reported renal tumor biopsies and central pathology review nephrectomy diagnoses of children enrolled by CCLG centers in the SIOP-WT-2001 study. Read More

Rana Naous

Case Rep Pathol 2018 16;2018:3462096. Epub 2018 Oct 16.

Department of Pathology, SUNY Upstate Medical University, 750 East Adams Street, Syracuse, NY 13210, USA.

Clear cell sarcoma of the kidney (CCSK) is an uncommon malignant tumor of uncertain histogenesis that occurs most commonly in childhood. Histologically, CCSK can mimic myxoid variant of synovial sarcoma (SS); however, the double positivity for CD99 and TLE1 in SS helps in excluding CCSK. Herein, we report a rare case of CCSK arising in the left kidney of a 3-year-old girl. Read More

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

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

J Pathol 2018 Mar 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.

B-cell lymphoma 6 corepressor (BCOR) gene internal tandem duplication (ITD) was identified as a recurrent somatic alteration in approximately 85% of CCSKs. This and the YWHAE-NUTM2B/E fusion, the second most common recurrent molecular alteration in CCSK (10%), are considered to be mutually exclusive. Read More

Diagnostic Utility of Pax8, Pax2, and NGFR Immunohistochemical Expression in Pediatric Renal Tumors.

Appl Immunohistochem Mol Morphol 2018 Nov/Dec;26(10):721-726

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, Chicago, IL.

Pediatric renal tumors (PRT) with small round blue or spindle cell morphology can be diagnostically challenging and only a limited number of immunohistochemical markers have been documented to help in the diagnosis: paired box (Pax) 2 and nerve growth factor receptor (NGFR) positivity have been demonstrated in Wilms tumor (WT) and clear cell sarcoma of the kidney (CCSK), respectively. However, the immunohistochemical expression of these markers in other PRT remains unknown. This study investigated Pax8, Pax2, and NGFR immunophenotype in a large series of PRT. Read More

Biology and treatment of renal tumours in childhood.

Eur J Cancer 2016 Oct 28;68:179-195. Epub 2016 Oct 28.

Cancer Section, University College London, Institute of Child Health, UK.

In Europe, almost 1000 children are diagnosed with a malignant renal tumour each year. The vast majority of cases are nephroblastoma, also known as Wilms' tumour (WT). Most children are treated according to Société Internationale d'Oncologie Pédiatrique Renal Tumour Study Group (SIOP-RTSG) protocols with pre-operative chemotherapy, surgery, and post-operative treatment dependent on stage and histology.

PO-60 - Renal tumors with extensive vascular disease: management challenges in a pediatric series from the Hospital for Sick Children.

Thromb Res 2016 Apr 8;140 Suppl 1:S198-9. Epub 2016 Apr 8.

Haematology/Oncology Division, The Hospital for Sick Children, University of Toronto.

Introduction: Venous thrombotic events (VTE) are becoming more and more common in children, particularly in the hospital setting. To date, 1 in 200 children admitted to tertiary pediatric hospitals are now being recognized to develop VTE. Amongst those patients with an identified thrombotic occlusion, pediatric patients diagnosed with renal tumors have long been recognized, but their ideal management in the instances of vascular invasion remains controversial.

Renal Tumors of Childhood: Radiologic-Pathologic Correlation Part 1. The 1st Decade: From the Radiologic Pathology Archives.

Radiographics 2016 Mar-Apr;36(2):499-522

From the Department of Radiology and Radiological Sciences (E.M.C.), F. Edward Hébert School of Medicine, Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (A.R.G.), 4301 Jones Bridge Rd, Bethesda, MD 20814; Pediatric Radiology Section, American Institute for Radiologic Pathology, Silver Spring, Md (E.M.C.); and Department of Pathology, Eastern Virginia Medical School, Norfolk, Va (R.M.C.).

Wilms tumor is the second most common pediatric solid tumor and by far the most common renal tumor of infants and young children. As most tumors are large at presentation and are treated with nephrectomy, the role of imaging is primarily in preoperative planning and evaluation for metastatic disease. However, with treatment protocols increasingly involving use of preoperative (neoadjuvant) chemotherapy (the standard in Europe) and consideration of nephron-sparing surgery, the role of imaging is evolving to include providing initial disease staging information and a presumptive diagnosis to guide therapy.

Revealing the role of VEGFA in clear cell sarcoma of the kidney by protein-protein interaction network and significant pathway analysis.

Oncol Lett 2016 Feb 4;11(2):953-958. Epub 2015 Dec 4.

Department of Nephrology, Linyi People's Hospital, Linyi, Shandong 276003, P.R. China.

Despite clear cell sarcoma of the kidney (CCSK) being the second most common renal tumor in children, its mechanism has not yet been fully investigated. The aim of the present study was to investigate the potential role of vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGFA) in CCSK development. Following preprocessing of the original GSE2712 data, the differentially-expressed genes (DEGs) between 14 CCSK and 3 fetal kidney samples were identified through Significance Analysis of Microarrays, using the R package.

Aberrant epigenetic regulation in clear cell sarcoma of the kidney featuring distinct DNA hypermethylation and EZH2 overexpression.

Oncotarget 2016 Mar;7(10):11127-36

Department of Clinical Genetics, Lund University, University and Regional Laboratories, Lund, Sweden.

The global methylation profile and the mutational status of 633 specific epigenetic regulators were analyzed in the pediatric tumor clear cell sarcoma of the kidney (CCSK). Methylation array analyses of 30 CCSKs revealed CCSK tumor DNA to be globally hypermethylated compared to Wilms tumor, normal fetal kidney, and adult kidney. The aberrant methylation pattern of CCSKs was associated with activation of genes involved in embryonic processes and with silencing of genes linked to normal kidney function. Read More

Recurrent internal tandem duplications of BCOR in clear cell sarcoma of the kidney.

Nat Commun 2015 Nov 17;6:8891. Epub 2015 Nov 17.

Texas Children's Cancer Center, Houston, Texas 77030, USA.

The X-linked BCL-6 co-repressor (BCOR) gene encodes a key constituent of a variant polycomb repressive complex (PRC) that is mutated or translocated in human cancers. Here we report on the identification of somatic internal tandem duplications (ITDs) clustering in the C terminus of BCOR in 23 of 27 (85%) pediatric clear cell sarcomas of the kidney (CCSK) from two independent cohorts. We profile CCSK tumours using a combination of whole-exome, transcriptome and targeted sequencing. Read More
