[Postoperative and posttherapeutic changes after primary bone tumors : What's important for radiologists?]

Radiologe 2017 Nov;57(11):938-957

Univ.-Klinik für Radiologie und Nuklearmedizin, Med. Universität Wien, Währinger Gürtel 18-20, 1090, Wien, Österreich.

Posttreatment imaging of primary bone tumours represents a diagnostic challenge for radiologists. Depending on the primary bone tumour common radiological procedures, such as radiography, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), are employed. Radiography and CT are particularly useful in benign bone tumours and in matrix-forming bone tumours. Read More

Undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma: indolent, tail-like recurrence of a high-grade tumor.

Skeletal Radiol 2018 Jan 20;47(1):141-144. Epub 2017 Sep 20.

Department of Radiology, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, 1275 York Avenue, New York, NY, 10065, USA.

Recurrence of a soft tissue sarcoma typically manifests as a round or oval mass at imaging, and recurrent high-grade soft tissue sarcomas generally enlarge relatively rapidly. We present a case of high-grade undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma in the calf of a 48-year-old male that recurred as a thin, curvilinear "tail" of enhancing tissue at magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), with extremely indolent growth over a 7-year period. The unusual imaging finding of a slowly enlarging "tail" should not be dismissed as postoperative changes, even for a high-grade soft tissue sarcoma. Read More

Department of Pathology, Azienda ULSS2 Marca Trevigiana, Treviso, Italy; Department of Medicine, University of Padua School of Medicine, Padua, Italy. Electronic address:

Primary bone sarcomas represent extremely rare entities. The use of now abolished labels, such as malignant fibrous histiocytoma and hemangiopericytoma, has significantly hampered the chance of identifying specific entities. It is now accepted that a broad variety of mesenchymal malignancies most often arising on the soft tissue may actually present as primary bone lesions. Read More

Department of Pathology, Faculty of Medicine and Odontology, Universitat de València, Avenida de Blasco Ibáñez 15, 46010, Valencia, Spain.

Pleomorphic undifferentiated sarcoma (PUS), also called malignant fibrous histiocytoma, is a soft tissue sarcoma which occurs predominantly in the extremities. Its origin is a poorly defined mesenchymal cell, which derives to histiocytic and fibroblastic cells. The patient, a 58 year-old man, presented a lesion located in the forearm composed by spindle cells and multinucleated giant cells, which expressed vimentin and adopted a histological pattern formed by irregular-swirling fascicles.

Pathologically Benign Lymph Nodes Can Mimic Malignancy on Imaging in Patients With Angiomatoid Fibrous Histiocytoma.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2017 Sep 23;475(9):2274-2279. Epub 2017 May 23.

Department of Surgery, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY, USA.

Background: Angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma (AFH) is a rare soft tissue neoplasm, and its rarity makes studying it difficult. We found that several of our patients with AFH presented with radiologically suspicious local lymph nodes that were sampled because of their imaging characteristics, but the nodes proved to be benign on pathologic evaluation. Although the frequency of this finding is unknown, it seems important for orthopaedic oncologists who care for patients with AFH to know whether suspicious-appearing associated nodes in these patients warrant aggressive management.
