Management of Myxofibrosarcoma and Undifferentiated Pleomorphic Sarcoma.

Surg Oncol Clin N Am 2022 Jul;31(3):419-430

Maria Sklodowska-Curie National Research Institute of Oncology, Sarcoma and Melanoma, Roentgena 5, 02-781 Warszawa, Poland. Electronic address:

Undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma (UPS) and myxofibrosarcoma (MFS) are genomically complex tumors commonly diagnosed in the extremities or trunk of elderly patients. They likely represent a spectrum of disease differentiated by myxoid stroma and curvilinear vessels observed in MFS but not in UPS. Limb-sparing surgery is the standard of care although the infiltrative nature of MFS mandates wider resection margins than are necessary for UPS. Read More

A case of pleomorphic dermal sarcoma with perineural invasion treated with Mohs micrographic surgery and adjuvant radiation therapy.

Dermatol Online J 2022 Jan 15;28(1). Epub 2022 Jan 15.

Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, Piscataway, New Jersey, USA Dermatology Service, VA New York Harbor Healthcare System, Brooklyn, New York, USA.

Pleomorphic dermal sarcoma (PDS) was recognized in the 2013 World Health Organization Classification of Tumors of Soft Tissue and Bone as a clinical entity with adverse histopathologic features compared to the more superficial and less aggressive atypical fibroxanthoma (AFX). Although the gold standard treatment of AFX is Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS), the optimal treatment for PDS has yet to be determined. We report the case of a 71-year-old man with a PDS with perineural invasion on the scalp, with no recurrence one-year post-treatment with MMS and adjuvant radiation therapy. Read More

How Can We Differentiate Local Recurrence From Heterotopic Ossification After Resection and Implantation of an Oncologic Knee Prosthesis in Patients with a Bone Sarcoma?

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2021 05;479(5):1134-1143

K. Jamshidi, A. Bagherifard, A. Mirzaei, Bone and Joint Reconstruction Research Center, Shafa Orthopedic Hospital, Iran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran.

Background: Heterotopic ossification (HO) is common after total joint arthroplasty and usually does not cause diagnostic problems. However, the occurrence of HO after oncologic prostheses implantation can be troublesome as it may mimic a locally recurrent tumor. Because this distinction could have a profound impact on the surgeon and patient, it is important to distinguish the two entities; to our knowledge, no study has evaluated this after oncologic endoprosthetic reconstruction around the knee after tumor resection.
