Synovial sarcoma of bone: Sarcoma typically of soft tissues presenting as a primary bone tumor.

Radiol Case Rep 2019 Feb 9;14(2):204-207. Epub 2018 Nov 9.

Department of Sarcoma, Moffitt Cancer Center, 12902 Magnolia Drive, Tampa, FL 33612, USA.

Synovial sarcoma typically presents as periarticular soft tissue mass in adolescent and young adult patients. Very rarely, soft tissue sarcomas may arise primarily within bone posing a significant diagnostic challenge as primary osseous malignancies such as osteosarcoma and metastatic disease are much more common. While tissue sampling with immunohistochemical and genetic testing are required for definitive diagnosis, radiologists and orthopedic oncologists should consider alternate etiologies when typical imaging features of more common bone tumors are not identified.

PET in the Diagnostic Management of Soft Tissue Sarcomas of Musculoskeletal Origin.

PET Clin 2018 Oct;13(4):609-621

Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California (USC), 1520 San Pablo Street, Suite L1600, Los Angeles, CA 90033.

Soft tissue sarcomas (STSs) account for less than 1% of adult solid tumors and about 7% of pediatric malignancies, causing 2% of cancer-related deaths. With the advent of PET-computed tomography (CT), the value of (18) fluorine-2-fluoro-2-deoxy-d-glucose (FDG) PET imaging to improve the management of STSs has been explored. FDG PET imaging has been found useful in restaging and treatment response assessment. Read More

α-particle therapy for synovial sarcoma in the mouse using an astatine-211-labeled antibody against frizzled homolog 10.

Cancer Sci 2018 Jul 27;109(7):2302-2309. Epub 2018 Jun 27.

Radiation and Cancer Biology Team, National Institute of Radiological Sciences, National Institutes for Quantum and Radiological Science and Technology, Chiba, Japan.

Synovial sarcoma (SS) is a rare yet refractory soft-tissue sarcoma that predominantly affects young adults. We show in a mouse model that radioimmunotherapy (RIT) with an α-particle emitting anti-Frizzled homolog 10 (FZD10) antibody, synthesized using the α-emitter radionuclide astatine-211 ( At-OTSA101), suppresses the growth of SS xenografts more efficiently than the corresponding β-particle emitting anti-FZD10 antibody conjugated with the β-emitter yettrium-90 ( Y-OTSA101). In biodistribution analysis, At was increased in the SS xenografts but decreased in other tissues up to 1 day after injection as time proceeded, albeit with a relatively higher uptake in the stomach.

Division of Adult Reconstruction, SUNY Downstate Medical Center, Brooklyn, New York; Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Rehabilitation Medicine, SUNY Downstate Medical Center, Brooklyn, New York.

Milwaukee Shoulder Syndrome (MSS) is a painful progressive arthropathy in which hydroxyapatite crystal deposition in synovial tissue induces lysosomal release of collagenase and neutral proteases. These enzymes are destructive to periarticular tissue, including the synovium, articular cartilage, rotator cuff muscles, and the intrasynovial cortical bone. MSS predominantly occurring in women (90%) over the age of 70 years of age with a clinical history marked by recurrent joint effusions and pain, which classically worsens at night. Read More

Review with novel markers facilitates precise categorization of 41 cases of diagnostically challenging, "undifferentiated small round cell tumors". A clinicopathologic, immunophenotypic and molecular analysis.

Ann Diagn Pathol 2018 Jun 29;34:1-12. Epub 2017 Nov 29.

Pathology Department, University of Valencia, Valencia, Spain.

Background: Despite extensive immunohistochemical (IHC) and molecular studies combined with morphologic findings, a group of round/ovoid cell tumors histologically similar to Ewing sarcomas (ES) but lacking EWSR1-rearrangements may remain unclassifiable.

Design: We retrospectively analyzed 41 Ewing-like tumors (formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded) previously determined as negative or non-informative for EWSR1-rearrangements by FISH and/or RT-PCR. A new histopathology revision and additional IHC and molecular analyses were carried out in order to investigate whether additional IHC and/or molecular testing in combination with the morphological findings may help in reaching a definitive diagnosis.

Preoperative evaluation of the efficacy of radio-hyperthermo-chemotherapy for soft tissue sarcoma in a case series.

PLoS One 2018 16;13(4):e0195289. Epub 2018 Apr 16.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Nagoya City University Graduate School of Medical Sciences, Nagoya, Aichi, Japan.

Purpose: Radio-hyperthermo-chemo (RHC) therapy, which combines radiotherapy, hyperthermia, and chemotherapy, for malignant soft tissue tumors has been introduced with the aim of decreasing the possibility of local recurrence after surgery. To avoid unnecessary neoadjuvant therapy and to plan the appropriate surgical treatment, surveillance of RHC therapeutic efficacy during treatment is necessary. In this study, we determined the optimal response criteria to evaluate the efficacy of RHC by comparing preoperative images before and after RHC with pathological evaluation of necrosis in the resected tumor.

Evaluation of recurrence of musculoskeletal tumors with thallium-201 scintigraphy plus SPECT/CT in pediatric population.

Bol Med Hosp Infant Mex 2018 ;75(1):31-40

Departamento de Medicina Nuclear e Imagen Molecular, Instituto Nacional de Cancerología. Ciudad de México, México.

Background: Imaging studies, particularly simple and contrast-enhanced tomography, constitute the first diagnostic approach to detect recurrence of musculoskeletal tumors. The aim of the present retrospective study was to demonstrate the usefulness of scintigraphy plus SPECT/CT (single photon emission computed tomography) with thallium-201 (Tl) in the evaluation of malignant musculoskeletal tumors with suspicion of recurrence or metastatic disease.

Methods: Eight weeks after the last therapy, 72 scintigraphy and SPECT/CT studies were performed to assess regional recurrence and metastatic disease in 42 patients with different types of malignant musculoskeletal tumors, such as osteosarcoma, Ewing's sarcoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, retinoblastoma, synovial sarcoma, and Wilms tumor at the Hospital Infantil de México Federico Gómez.

Primary Pleuropulmonary Synovial Sarcoma on Fluorodeoxyglucose Positron Emission Tomography-Computed Tomography Scan.

Indian J Nucl Med 2017 Oct-Dec;32(4):340-342

Department of Radiology Imaging Services, Health Care Global Cancer Centre, Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India.

Primary pleuropulmonary synovial sarcoma, a mesenchymal tumor of lung and pleura, is very rare and highly aggressive condition among the primary lung malignancies. As role of fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography (FDG PET-CT) has been established in lung malignancies in terms of staging, restaging, biopsy guidance, and treatment response evaluation, there is also role of FDG PET-contrast-enhanced CT (CECT) to raise suspicion or increase confidence in reporting of sarcomatous lung malignancy by studying characteristics of CECT scan features. We present a case of a 57-year-old female patient having large lung mass, who underwent FDG PET-CT scan and findings raised strong suspicious of noncarcinomatous pattern of lung mass and may have sarcomatous primary lung malignancy which was later proven on histopathological and immunohistochemistry report.

Pericardial tumors are rare lesions that include a range of neoplastic conditions that may arise within the pericardium or metastasize to involve it secondarily. Understanding the spectrum of lesions that are included in the differential diagnosis of a pericardial mass-lesion is critical to making timely, accurate diagnoses and getting the appropriate therapy should one be necessary. This review summarizes the radiologic and pathologic findings of the most commonly encountered of these entities. Read More

The Influential Role of BCL2 Family Members in Synovial Sarcomagenesis.

Mol Cancer Res 2017 12 29;15(12):1733-1740. Epub 2017 Aug 29.

Department of Orthopaedics, University of Utah School of Medicine, Salt Lake City, Utah.

Synovial sarcomas are deadly soft tissue malignancies associated with t(X;18) balanced chromosomal translocations. Expression of the apoptotic regulator BCL2 is prominent in synovial sarcomas and has prompted the hypothesis that synovial sarcomagenesis may depend on it. Herein, it is demonstrated that overexpression enhances synovial sarcomagenesis in an animal model. Read More
