Parosteal lipoma of the rib: A rare condition in an uncommon location.

J Med Imaging Radiat Oncol 2021 Jun 20. Epub 2021 Jun 20.

Benson Radiology, Adelaide, South Australia, Australia.

A 36-year-old female patient was diagnosed with a parosteal lipoma arising from the left 3rd rib. This was preluded by a 5-year history of an asymptomatic and stable mass at the medial aspect of the left scapula. It had displayed an interval enlargement in the preceding 3 months which prompted investigation to rule out an aggressive lesion. Read More

Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology, IRCCS Istituto Ortopedico Rizzoli, Via GC Pupilli n 1, 40136, Bologna, Italy.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a fundamental tool in the evaluation of soft tissue sarcoma. Imaging features are relevant for the assessment of treatment strategies, surgical planning and also for patients' prognosis prediction. Among soft tissue sarcoma and also other malignancies, the size of the mass is usually considered the prognostic key element in diagnostic imaging. Read More

Anti-PD-1 Immunotherapy and Bee Venom for Relapsed and Refractory Liposarcoma: A Case Report.

Front Oncol 2021 29;11:668992. Epub 2021 Apr 29.

Department of Oncology, Hangzhou Red Cross Hospital, Hangzhou, China.

Cancer immunotherapies, including immune checkpoint inhibitors, elicit long-term clinical responses but many cancer patients do not respond. Intensive efforts are therefore underway to identify additional immune pathways that may be modulated to enhance the efficacy of existing immunotherapies. Bee venom strongly stimulates the immune system, and is used as a complementary therapy to treat cancer pain in patients with advanced tumors in China. Read More

Pediatric Head and Neck Tumors Associated with Li-Fraumeni Syndrome.

Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol 2021 May 10:34894211014786. Epub 2021 May 10.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, University of Colorado School of Medicine and Children's Hospital Colorado, Aurora, CO, USA.

Introduction: Cancer predisposition syndromes are germline pathogenic variants in genes that greatly raise the risk of developing neoplastic diseases. One of the most well-known is Li-Fraumeni syndrome (LFS), which is due to pathogenic variants in the gene. Children with LFS have higher risks for multiple malignancies before adulthood, often with rare and aggressive subtypes. Read More

Retroperitoneal liposarcoma mimicking pheochromocytoma.

Radiol Case Rep 2021 Jun 15;16(6):1493-1498. Epub 2021 Apr 15.

Department of Clinical Surgical Sciences, The University of the West Indies, St Augustine Campus, Trinidad, West Indies.

Retroperitoneal liposarcomas are rare mesenchymal tumors which carry a poor prognosis because of their late presentation. When symptoms do occur, they are usually nonspecific and related to mass effect or invasion of local structures. Rarely, retroperitoneal liposarcomas can clinically and biochemically mimic phaeochromocytomas. Read More

Magnetic resonance imaging of trunk and extremity myxoid liposarcoma: diagnosis, staging, and response to treatment.

Skeletal Radiol 2021 Apr 1. Epub 2021 Apr 1.

Department of Clinical Oncology, University College London Hospital, 250 Euston Road, London, NW1 2PG, UK.

Myxoid liposarcoma (MLS) accounts for approximately 30% of all liposarcomas. The majority are intermediate-grade tumours, but the presence of >5% round cell component renders it a high-grade sarcoma with subsequent poorer outcome. MLS most commonly arises in the lower extremities, has a predilection for extra-pulmonary sites of metastatic disease, and is recognized to be radiosensitive. Read More

Tumors and pseudotumors of the soft tissues: Imaging semiology and strategy.

J Clin Imaging Sci 2021 3;11:13. Epub 2021 Mar 3.

Department Radiology, Musculoskeletal Imaging Unit, CHU Besancon, Besancon, France.

The aims of this educational review are to learn the semiological basis of soft-tissue lesions and, with the help of diagnostic algorithms, to apply the current recommendations for the management of soft-tissue tumors. Pseudotumors must first be identified and excluded. Among primary tumors, the search for macroscopic fat content on MRI is decisive; since it restricts the diagnostic range to adipocytic tumors.

Myxoid liposarcoma: MRI features with histological correlation.

Radiologia (Engl Ed) 2021 Mar 12. Epub 2021 Mar 12.

Unidad de Gestión Clínica de Radiodiagnóstico, Hospital Universitario Virgen del Rocío, Sevilla, España.

Background And Aims: Myxoid liposarcoma is classified in the group of sarcomas with adipose differentiation, which is the second most common group of sarcomas. However, myxoid liposarcoma is not a homogeneous entity, because the behavior and clinical course of these tumors can vary widely. This study aimed to describe the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features of myxoid liposarcomas and to determine whether the MRI features are associated with the histologic grade and can differentiate between low-grade and high-grade tumors and thus help in clinical decision making.

Image-Guided Core Needle Biopsy of Adipocytic Tumors: Diagnostic Accuracy and Concordance With Final Surgical Pathology.

AJR Am J Roentgenol 2021 04 24;216(4):997-1002. Epub 2021 Feb 24.

Department of Radiology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, 330 Brookline Ave, Boston, MA 02215.

Diagnostic accuracy of core needle biopsy (CNB) for adipocytic tumors can be low because of sampling error from these often large, heterogeneous lesions. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of image-guided CNB for various adipocytic tumors in comparison with excisional pathology. Adipocytic tumors ( = 77) of all adult patients undergoing image-guided CNB and subsequent surgical excision of an adipocytic tumor at a tertiary referral center between 2005 and 2019 were studied.
