No evidence for viral transcripts in dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans.

Br J Dermatol 2019 Mar 18. Epub 2019 Mar 18.

Biology of Infection Unit, Laboratory of Pathogen Discovery, Inserm U1117, Paris.

Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is a rare cutaneous neoplasm, which rarely metastasizes, although local relapses are common. No environmental factors have been clearly identified. The pathomechanisms of DFSP involves the activation of the platelet-derived growth factor receptor (PDGF-R) by a fusion transcript resulting from genomic instability, mainly a chromosomal translocation t(17;22), thus leading to a proliferation of CD34+, vimentin+, FXIIIa-, fibroblastic cells.

Medallion-like dermal dendrocyte hamartoma: A rare congenital CD34-positive dermal lesion clinically and pathologically overlapping with fibroblastic connective tissue nevus.

Pediatr Dermatol 2019 Feb 27. Epub 2019 Feb 27.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Teikyo University Chiba Medical Center, Ichihara-shi, Chiba, Japan.

Both medallion-like dermal dendrocyte hamartoma and fibroblastic connective tissue nevus are rare benign dermal lesions composed of CD34-positive spindle cells. Although regarded as different diseases, it is sometimes difficult to distinguish between them due to their clinical and pathological similarities. We present a case of medallion-like dermal dendrocyte hamartoma that could also be diagnosed as fibroblastic connective tissue nevus and propose the possibility of overlap in these diseases.

Dermatology Service, Department of Medicine, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, New York.

Importance: Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) has the potential for local destruction and recurrence, although it carries a low risk of metastasis. Complete surgical resection with negative margins is considered the gold standard for treatment; however, there are cases that are unresectable owing to tumor extension or size or owing to risk of cosmetic and/or functional impairment. Imatinib treatment has been used for locally advanced or metastatic DFSP. Read More

Clinical Utility of In Situ Hybridization Assays in Head and Neck Neoplasms.

Head Neck Pathol 2018 Nov 22. Epub 2018 Nov 22.

Tissue Pathology and Diagnostic Oncology, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney, Australia.

Head and neck pathology present a unique set of challenges including the morphological diversity of the neoplasms and presentation of metastases of unknown primary origin. The detection of human papillomavirus and Epstein-Barr virus associated with squamous cell carcinoma and newer entities like HPV-related carcinoma with adenoid cystic like features have critical prognostic and management implications. In salivary gland neoplasms, differential diagnoses can be broad and include non-neoplastic conditions as well as benign and malignant neoplasms. Read More

[Alternative therapy option for plastic-aesthetic treatment of defects after resection in the upper third of the facial region in the sense of subtotal scalping instead of local flap plastics].

Hautarzt 2019 Feb;70(2):123-126

Klinik für Mund‑, Kiefer- und Gesichtschirurgie, Universitätsklinikum Münster, Waldeyerstr. 30, 48149, Münster, Deutschland.

In the presented case, the resulting defect size after resection of a dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans exceeded the treatment capability with local flaps in the region of the exposed facial skin. Through the use of conventional wound healing in combination with a meshed split-thickness skin graft, plastic aesthetic soft tissue treatment with an aesthetically satisfactory result was possible.

Establishment of novel patient-derived models of dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans: two cell lines, NCC-DFSP1-C1 and NCC-DFSP2-C1.

In Vitro Cell Dev Biol Anim 2019 Jan 8;55(1):62-73. Epub 2018 Nov 8.

Department of Innovative Seeds Evaluation, National Cancer Center Research Institute, 5-1-1 Tsukiji, Chuo-ku, Tokyo, 104-0045, Japan.

Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is a common type of dermal sarcoma, characterized by the presence of the unique collagen type I alpha 1 chain (COL1A1)-PDGFB translocation, which causes constitutive activation of the platelet-derived growth factor β (PDGFB) signaling pathway. Patients with DFSP exhibit frequent local recurrence, and novel therapeutic approaches are required to achieve better clinical outcomes. Patient-derived cancer cell lines are essential in the preclinical research. Read More
