Re-evaluating tumors of purported specialized prostatic stromal origin reveals molecular heterogeneity, including non-recurring gene fusions characteristic of uterine and soft tissue sarcoma subtypes.

Mod Pathol 2021 May 13. Epub 2021 May 13.

Department of Pathology, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA.

Tumors of purported specialized prostatic stromal origin comprise prostatic stromal sarcomas (PSS) and stromal tumors of uncertain malignant potential (STUMP). Prior studies have described their clinicopathologic characteristics, but the molecular features remain incompletely understood. Moreover, these neoplasms are morphologically heterogeneous and the lack of specific adjunctive markers of prostatic stromal lineage make precise definition more difficult, leading some to question whether they represent a specific tumor type.

18F-FDG PET/CT Imaging of Prostate Stromal Tumor of Uncertain Malignant Potential.

Clin Nucl Med 2021 04;46(4):348-349

From the Department of Biomedical and Dental Sciences and Morpho-Functional Imaging, University of Messina, Messina, Italy.

Abstract: A 79-year-old man presented with dysuria and increased serum prostate-specific antigen level (21 ng/mL). MRI revealed bulky prostate enlargement but was inconclusive in revealing neoplastic lesions. Nevertheless, because of high clinical suspicion for neoplasm, transrectal biopsy revealed stromal tumor of uncertain malignant potential mixed with foci of low-grade primitive prostate stromal sarcoma.

Prostatic stromal proliferations: a review.

Pathology 2021 Jan 13;53(1):12-25. Epub 2020 Nov 13.

Department of Oncology-Pathology, Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden.

Prostatic stromal proliferations account for the majority of benign tumour-like lesions in the prostate. The most common is nodular hyperplasia, seen in a majority of elderly men. Diagnostic difficulty is encountered with some variants, including stromal hyperplasia with atypia, characterised by degenerative changes of myofibroblasts. Read More

Two Cases of Spindle Cell Neoplasms in Patients Undergoing Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate.

J Endourol Case Rep 2019 2;5(4):174-177. Epub 2019 Dec 2.

Division of Urology, Baylor Scott & White Health, Temple, Texas.

Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) has proven to be effective in benign proliferations of the prostate resulting in large prostatic volumes. It is a less-invasive surgical alternative to transurethral resection and surgical resection. Prostatic adenocarcinoma can incidentally be found in the enucleated tissue. Read More

Evaluation of glucocorticoid-induced TNF receptor (GITR) expression in breast cancer and across multiple tumor types.

Mod Pathol 2020 09 29;33(9):1753-1763. Epub 2020 Apr 29.

Genetic Pathology Evaluation Centre, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC, Canada.

Glucocorticoid-induced TNF receptor (GITR) is an emerging immunotherapy target that is expressed at high levels on regulatory T cells. Agonistic anti-GITR antibodies have anti-tumor activity in cancer mouse models, and recent phase 1 trials have demonstrated their safe pharmacological profile. However, there is limited knowledge on the relationship between GITR expression and the tumor microenvironment. Read More

Clinicopathologic characteristics of prostatic stromal sarcoma with rhabdoid features: A case report.

World J Clin Cases 2020 Feb;8(3):606-613

Department of Urology, Jiangmen Central Hospital, Affiliated Jiangmen Hospital of Sun Yat-Sen University, Jiangmen 529030, Guangdong Province, China.

Background: Prostatic stromal sarcoma presenting with rhabdoid features is extremely rare, and only four cases have been reported in the English-language literature to date. Accordingly, there is no absolute definition of this group of tumors as yet, and our overall understanding of its morphological features, therapeutic regimen and prognosis is limited.

Case Summary: A 34-year-old male patient was referred to our hospital to address a 2-mo history of hematuria and progressive dysuria. Read More

A novel PTPRZ1-ETV1 fusion in gliomas.

Brain Pathol 2020 03 27;30(2):226-234. Epub 2019 Aug 27.

Institute of Pathology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Ljubljana, Ljubljana, Slovenia.

The aggressive nature of malignant gliomas and their genetic and clinical heterogeneity present a major challenge in their diagnosis and treatment. Development of targeted therapy brought attention on detecting novel gene fusions, since they represent promising therapeutic targets (eg, TRK inhibitors in NTRK fusion-positive tumors). Using targeted next-generation sequencing, we prospectively analyzed 205 primary brain tumors and detected a novel PTPRZ1-ETV1 fusion transcript in 11 of 191 (5. Read More

Mod Pathol 2018 01;31(S1):S133-142

Robert J Tomsich Pathology and Laboratory Medicine Institute, Anatomic Pathology, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH, USA.

Mesenchymal tumors of the prostate are rare but often cause considerable diagnostic difficulty when encountered. These may be either benign or malignant and can arise within the prostate gland or in adjacent tissues. This review covers prostatic stromal proliferations (prostatic stromal tumor of uncertain malignant potential and stromal sarcoma), solitary fibrous tumor, myofibroblastic proliferations, smooth muscle neoplasms (leiomyoma and leiomyosarcoma), gastrointestinal stromal tumor, schwannoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, sarcomatoid carcinoma, postradiation sarcoma, and mixed epithelial stromal tumor of the seminal vesicle.

Whole-exome sequencing demonstrates recurrent somatic copy number alterations and sporadic mutations in specialized stromal tumors of the prostate.

Hum Pathol 2018 06 16;76:9-16. Epub 2017 Dec 16.

Department of Pathology, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, 21205 Baltimore, MD; Department of Pathology, The James Buchanan Brady Urological Institute, 21205 Baltimore, MD; Department of Pathology, The Johns Hopkins Hospital, 21287 Baltimore, MD. Electronic address:

In a previous array comparative genomic hybridization study, we detected common deletions of chromosomes 13 and 14 in prostatic stromal sarcoma and stromal tumor of uncertain malignant potential (STUMP). In this study, we performed whole-exome sequencing (WES) and fluorescence in situ hybridization to explore somatic mutations in 1 low-grade stromal sarcoma, 1 high-grade stromal sarcoma, and 12 STUMPs including 5 cases of degenerative atypia type, 1 myxoid type, 1 phyllodes type, and 5 cases of recently described round cell type. WES was successful on 13 cases that revealed frequent somatic copy number alterations including losses of chromosomes 13 (11 cases), 14 (11 cases), and 1p (9 cases), and partial or complete loss of chromosome 10 (7 cases).

The Prevalence of Prostatic Stromal Tumor of Uncertain Malignant Potential in Specimens Diagnosed as Prostatic Hyperplasia.

Arch Iran Med 2016 Jul;19(7):488-90

Pathology Department, Shiraz University of Medical Sciences, Shiraz, Iran.

Background: Prostatic stromal tumors of uncertain malignant potential (STUMPs) are rare tumors arising from the specialized prostatic stroma. These tumors share certain histological and clinical features of benign prostatic hyperplasia, resulting in misdiagnosis of STUMP as prostatic hyperplasia. However, in contrast to prostatic hyperplasia, occasional cases have been documented to recur rapidly after resection and few of them have progressed to prostatic stromal sarcoma and distant metastasis.

Beyond Prostate Adenocarcinoma: Expanding the Differential Diagnosis in Prostate Pathologic Conditions.

Radiographics 2016 Jul-Aug;36(4):1055-75. Epub 2016 Jun 17.

From the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging (Y.L., J.M., S.C.B., A.C.W.) and Department of Pathology (J.S.), University of California, San Francisco, 505 Parnassus Ave, M-391, San Francisco, CA 94143-0628; Department of Radiology, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, New Delhi, India (S.S.); and Department of Diagnostic Radiology, Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, Ore (F.V.C.).

Recent advances in magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of the prostate gland have dramatically improved the ability to detect and stage adenocarcinoma of the prostate, one of the most frequently diagnosed cancers in men and one of the most frequently diagnosed pathologic conditions of the prostate gland. A wide variety of nonadenocarcinoma diseases can also be seen with MR imaging, ranging from benign to malignant diseases, as well as infectious and inflammatory manifestations. Many of these diseases have distinctive imaging features that allow differentiation from prostate acinar adenocarcinoma. Read More
