Pediatric Head and Neck Tumors Associated with Li-Fraumeni Syndrome.

Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol 2021 May 10:34894211014786. Epub 2021 May 10.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, University of Colorado School of Medicine and Children's Hospital Colorado, Aurora, CO, USA.

Introduction: Cancer predisposition syndromes are germline pathogenic variants in genes that greatly raise the risk of developing neoplastic diseases. One of the most well-known is Li-Fraumeni syndrome (LFS), which is due to pathogenic variants in the gene. Children with LFS have higher risks for multiple malignancies before adulthood, often with rare and aggressive subtypes. Read More

Synovial sarcoma of the spine in the lumbar vertebral body: A rare case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2020 Dec;99(50):e23499

Department of Orthopedics.

Rationale: Synovial sarcoma (SS) is a soft tissue neoplasm that rarely occurs in the vertebral body and should be considered in the differential diagnosis in patients with SS and vertebral lesions. SS often presents as a painless mass in the spine, which may undergo slow enlargement, resulting in sustained symptoms of neurologic deficit and pain. Due to the difficulty in differentiating between SS from other soft tissue tumors and metastatic tumors, careful histological confirmation is required for definite diagnosis. Read More

Oscar M Navarro

Semin Ultrasound CT MR 2020 Oct 28;41(5):498-512. Epub 2020 May 28.

Department of Medical Imaging, University of Toronto, Department of Diagnostic Imaging, The Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Electronic address:

There is a broad spectrum of soft-tissue masses in children that can be challenging to diagnose clinically and on imaging. This article reviews the typical clinical and imaging findings of the most common and relevant benign, intermediate and malignant pediatric soft-tissue tumors in the following categories of the 2013 World Health Organization (WHO) classification: adipocytic tumors (lipoma, lipoblastoma, and liposarcoma), fibroblastic/myofibroblastic tumors (nodular fasciitis, myositis ossificans, fibrous hamartoma of infancy, fibromatosis colli, desmoid-type fibromatosis, lipofibromatosis, and infantile fibrosarcoma), pericytic tumors (myofibroma/myofibromatosis), skeletal muscle tumor (rhabdomyosarcoma), nerve sheath tumors (neurofibroma, malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor), and uncertain differentiation (synovial sarcoma). In general, ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging are used as first- and second-line imaging modalities, with limited roles for plain radiographs, computed tomography, and fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography.
