Desmoplastic Melanoma as a Diagnostic Pitfall.

Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 2020 Jul;28(1):49-50

Dear Editor, Desmoplastic melanoma (DM) is a rare histological subtype of melanoma, usually presenting as a slowly-growing, amelanotic, discoid, and/or firm lesion composed of spindle cells with abundant collagen (1). It is more common on sun-exposed areas, especially on head and neck in elderly patients (2). Regional lymph node involvement is reported to be less frequent than in other cutaneous melanomas (3).

Anal Cell Pathol (Amst) 2020 28;2020:8232803. Epub 2020 May 28.

Department of Pathology, Ruijin Hospital, Shanghai Jiaotong University School of Medicine, Shanghai, China.

The expression of TFE3 (transcription factor E3) in solitary fibrous tumours (SFTs) and their histologic mimickers was investigated, and the diagnostic value and clinical significance of TFE3 nuclear expression in SFTs were explored. Immunohistochemical analysis for TFE3 was performed on 50 cases of SFTs that were surgically resected. The controls were sample tissues from malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumour, synovial sarcoma, dedifferentiated liposarcoma, spindle cell lipoma, and dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans. Read More

Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans with fibrosarcomatous transformation: a case report.

Cesk Patol 2020 ;56(2):89-93

Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans is a quite rare local aggressive tumor of dermis and subcutis, revealing characteristic morphology and chromosomal translocation (17; 22)(q21;q13) with gene fusion COL1A1-PDGFB. The tumour almost never metastasizes and complete excision signs an excellent prognosis. Approximately in 10% of cases, dermatofibrosarcoma undergoes a fibrosarcomatous transformation associated with metastatic disease and worse prognosis. Read More

Department of Dermatology and Plastic Surgery, Faculty of Life Sciences, Kumamoto University, Kumamoto, Japan.

Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is a rare neoplasm derived from fibroblasts and tumorigenic mechanism is mainly defined by the formation of a fusion gene between the α-helix domain of the collagen type 1 (COL1A1) gene and the platelet-derived growth factor-β (PDGFB) gene. We investigated the fusion site of COL1A1/PDGFB gene and its relationship with clinical findings in 30 patients with DFSP treated at our hospital. COL1A1/ PDGFB fusion was detected in 83% of DFSP patients. Read More

Fat necrosis with an associated lymphocytic infiltrate represents a histopathologic clue that distinguishes cellular dermatofibroma from dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans.

J Cutan Pathol 2020 May 15. Epub 2020 May 15.

Department of Pathology, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA.

Background: Cellular dermatofibromas (CDFs) and dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) can be challenging to differentiate from one another. Morphologically, both entities commonly extend into the subcutis, exhibit high cellularity with limited cytologic atypia and have a mixed fascicular-to-storiform growth pattern. We sought to evaluate the significance of fat necrosis with an associated lymphocytic infiltrate as a histopathologic clue for distinguishing CDFs from DFSP. Read More

Division of Rare Cancer Research, National Cancer Center Research Institute, 5-1-1 Tsukiji, Chuo-ku, Tokyo, 104-0045, Japan.

Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is the most common dermal sarcoma; it is characterized by the presence of the COL1A1-PDGFB translocation, which causes the constitutive activation of the platelet-derived growth factor β (PDGFB) signaling pathway. DFSP frequently exhibits local recurrence and is refractory to conventional chemotherapy. Therefore, a novel therapeutic strategy is required for improving the prognosis of DFSP. Read More

Unmasking dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans: Case report of an atypical presentation complicated by post-surgical excision.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2020 3;69:101-104. Epub 2020 Apr 3.

Department of Pathology, Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, Erie, PA, United States. Electronic address:

Introduction: Dermatofibrosarcoma Protuberans (DFSP) is a rare type of malignant tumor of the cutaneous soft tissue that typically involves the dermis and surrounding structures. The typical clinical presentation involves an asymptomatic, slowly enlarging, indurated plaque, usually found on the trunk.

Presentation Of Case: Here we present an atypical presentation of DFSP in a patient with a recurrent mass that was initially diagnosed as a lipoma, with supporting literature and clinical considerations for post-surgical management DISCUSSION: In its earlier stages, DFSP can mimic other benign or malignant dermatological pathologies, which can complicate diagnosis purely via history and physical exam.

Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is a slow growing dermal tumor with a very low metastatic potential but with significant subclinical extension and capacity for local destruction with local recurrence rates ranging from 0 to 50%. Controversy exists regarding margin width and excision techniques, with some advocating Mohs surgery and others wide excision. We reviewed the excision technique along with the recurrence rates at a tertiary care center in eastern India. Read More
