To study the clinicopathologic features, immunophenotype, molecular genetics and differential diagnosis of biphenotypic sinonasal sarcoma (BSNS), and to evaluate the role of PAX3 and PAX8 immunohistochemical (IHC) antibodies in the diagnosis of BSNS. Nasal sinus spindle cell tumors surgically treated at the Jinling Hospital from 2000 to 2019 were collected, including three cases of BSNS, 10 cases of acinar rhabdomyosarcoma, eight cases of schwannoma, five cases of hemangiopericytoma, three cases of fibrosarcoma, and one case of triton tumor. The cases were evaluated by histology, IHC by EnVision for PAX3 and PAX 8 (including PAX8 murine monoclonal antibody, clone number OTI6H8, hereinafter referred to as PAX8-OTI6H8 antibody; PAX8 rabbit monoclonal antibody, clone number EP298, hereinafter referred to as PAX8-EP298 antibody) molecular genetic tests.
