Ann Chir Plast Esthet 2019 Feb 24;64(1):98-105. Epub 2018 Sep 24.

Institut Gustave-Roussy, department of plastic surgery, Gustave-Roussy, 114 rue Édouard-Vaillant, 94805 Villejuif, France.

Clear cell sarcomas (SCC), also called "soft-tissue melanoma", are rare and aggressive tumors that preferentially affect the lower limbs (tendons and fasciae) and which have also been described in head and neck localizations. Their clinical and immunohistochemical mimicry with melanoma makes it difficult to diagnose sarcomas. SCC treatment is mainly focused on large-scale resection surgery with adjuvant radiotherapy because of their low chemo-sensitivity and extreme lymphophilia. Read More
