Primary Osteosarcoma of the Breast: A Rare Case Report and Literature Review.

Front Oncol 2022 9;12:875793. Epub 2022 Jun 9.

Graduate School, Dalian Medical University, Dalian, China.

Background: Primary osteosarcoma of the breast (POB) is an extremely aggressive and heterogeneous neoplasm that originates from nonepithelial elements of the mammary gland and accounts for fewer than 1% of breast cancers and fewer than 5% of all sarcomas.

Case Presentation: An 83-year-old Chinese woman went to our hospital because of a palpable mass she had had for 8 months in the left breast accompanied by persistent dull pain for 10 days. This mass was initially misdiagnosed as a degenerating fibroadenoma and was graded as probably benign (BI-RADS category 3) by ultrasonography (US) and computed tomography (CT) plain scan and contrast enhancement of chest.

Adult NTRK-rearranged spindle cell neoplasms of the viscera: with an emphasis on rare locations and heterologous elements.

Mod Pathol 2022 Feb 11. Epub 2022 Feb 11.

Department of Anatomical Pathology, Kaohsiung Chang Gung Memorial Hospital and Chang Gung University College of Medicine, Kaohsiung, Taiwan.

NTRK-rearranged mesenchymal neoplasms mostly affect the soft tissues of pediatric patients. Given the responsiveness to selective NTRK inhibitors, it remains critical to identify those ultra-rare cases occurring in the viscera of adults. In five females and two males aged 18-53 years, we characterized visceral mesenchymal tumors harboring TPM3-NTRK1 [uterine cervix (N = 2), pleura, prostate], LMNA-NTRK1 (lung), SQSTM1-NTRK3 (heart), and NTRK3 rearrangement with unknown fusion partner (colon/mesocolon) with RNA sequencing, FISH, RT-PCR, and immunohistochemistry.
