Carbon dioxide (CO2) therapy can be applied to treat a variety of disorders. We previously found that transcutaneous application of CO2 with a hydrogel decreased the tumor volume of several types of tumors and induced apoptosis via the mitochondrial pathway. However, only one condition of treatment intensity has been tested. For widespread application in clinical antitumor therapy, the conditions must be optimized. In the present study, we investigated the relationship between the duration, frequency, and treatment interval of transcutaneous CO2 application and antitumor effects in murine xenograft models...

Tumor metastasis to lymph nodes is an important contributory factor for cancer-related deaths despite recent developments in cancer therapy. In this study, we demonstrate that tumor in the proper axillary lymph node (PALN) of the mouse can be treated by the application of external laser light to trigger the unloading of doxorubicin (DOX) encapsulated in thermosensitive liposomes (TSLs) administered together with gold nanorods (GNRs). GNRs + DOX-TSLs were injected into a mouse lymph node containing cancer cells (malignant fibrous histiocytoma-like cells) and intranodal DOX release was activated using near-infrared (NIR) laser irradiation...

Malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH) is the most common form of soft tissue sarcoma during middle and late adulthood in the deep connective tissue of the extremities, abdominal cavity, and retroperitoneum. However, primary breast sarcoma is a rare disease entity, comprising less than 1% of all breast malignancies. MFH of the male breast is very rare. We present a case of MFH of giant cell variant of the right breast in a 50-year-old male who presented with a painless lump. Following cytological investigation, simple mastectomy was performed...

Sarcomas account for less than 1% of malignant breast tumors. We present the case of a sarcoma (malignant fibrous histiocytoma) of the breast that debuted as a lump. The patient associated the lump with trauma, and the clinical, sonographic, and cytological findings were suggestive of a hematoma. The lump grew rapidly, and the follow-up sonogram one month later clearly revealed hypervascular solid poles. This atypical presentation is useful for reviewing the management of lesions suggestive of hematomas, which are often associated with nonspecific findings and occasionally with signs that raise suspicion of malignancy...

Malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH) of the breast and visceral organs is extremely rare. There is an incomplete understanding of the clinical pathology of the primary MFH originating from the breast and visceral organs, especially in comparison with other soft tissue sarcomas. As a consequence we searched and analyzed the clinical and pathological records of all the nine patients with diagnosed breast and visceral MFH in our hospital. Immunohistochemical staining was performed for ezrin and HMG-CoA reductase in these MFH cases and relevant mesenchymal sarcomas...

AIM: S100A6 is over-expressed in several human tumors, including pancreatic carcinoma, malignant fibrous histiocytoma, breast, colon, and gastric carcinoma, but little is known about the role of S100A6 in endometriosis. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of S100A6 over-expression on β-catenin in endometrial stromal cells. METHODS: Endometrial stromal cells were transfected with an hS100A6-expressing recombinant lentivirus construct. The expression of β-catenin was assessed using western blot and reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction...

Primary breast angiosarcoma is a very rare aggressive mesenchymal tumor, which may represent only 0.04% of all breast malignant tumors. We report a case of primary angiosarcoma in the breast of a 22-year-old woman who presented with a mass in her right breast. Ultrasonography revealed a large heterogeneous lobulated mass lesion consistent with a fibroadenoma or phyllodes tumor. After a period of six months, she presented with nipple retraction, so a core needle biopsy was performed. Histopathology revealed a well differentiated angiosarcoma (grade I/III), but in the mastectomy specimen, numerous neoplastic multinucleated giant cells were evident, which resembled those found in other sarcomas, such as malignant fibrous histiocytoma or extra skeletal osteogenic sarcoma, and this caused difficulty making the diagnosis...

Malignant tumors of the female reproductive system are a serious health and social problem, as they are the second most common cause of death among women, after breast cancer. Vulvar tumors represent only 4% of all gynecological neoplasms, and they are fourth in frequency after tumors of the cervix, uterus, and ovary. Ninety-eight percent of all vulvar tumors are benign and only 2% are malignant. Sarcomas of the vulva comprise approximately 1-3% of all vulvar cancers. They are characterized by rapid growth, high metastatic potential, frequent recurrences, aggressive behavior, and high mortality rate...

We report 2 cases of radiotherapy-induced sarcoma of the residual breast after breast cancer surgery. In 1 case, the patient was a 64-year-old woman. She underwent breast-conserving surgery and axillary lymph node dissection followed by irradiation to the residual breast in July 2001. A 1.1 × 1.0-cm tumor was noted in the residual breast 7 years 5 months after radiotherapy. An excisional biopsy was performed, and a histological diagnosis of angiosarcoma was made. She died of lung and peritoneal metastases 3 years 2 months after the diagnosis...

Mesenchymal breast lesions encompass a variety of breast diseases. Many of these lesions are rare with only a few case reports in the literature. This article reviews the imaging findings of selected mesenchymal breast lesions, their clinical presentations and method of diagnosis. Mesenchymal lesions are diverse and include haemangioma, granular cell tumour, myofibroblastoma, fibromatosis, pseudoangiomatous stromal hyperplasia, and malignant fibrous histiocytoma. It is important for radiologists to be aware of these lesions as some of them may have malignant potential or demonstrate imaging features that overlap with other malignant lesions...

Morphologically, the benign fibrous histiocytoma is a proliferation of the dermal areas and fibroblasts where the last may have a heterogenic localization in the human body. A number of malignant and benign skin lesions may be interpreted as a possible differential diagnosis. We are presenting a female patient with a tumor formation located under the right breast which, after the performance of an elliptical excision, was verified to be a benign fibrous histiocytoma with a tendency toward xantomatization.

Sarcomas are rare histological types of malignancy found in the breast. While angiosarcoma is the most common type of sarcoma found here, malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH) arising de novo is one of the rare varieties. We recently cared for a middle aged lady with a locally advanced fungating growth in her right breast. The patient underwent right modified radical mastectomy (MRM) as her fine needle aspiration cytology report was suggestive of malignancy. The histopathological report revealed the tumour to be MFH...

This review gives an overview of radiotherapy-induced malignant skin tumors as described in the present medical literature. Basal cell carcinomas are the most frequent post-radiation malignant skin tumors; however, specific incidence ratios are few and show ratios of 2%. Squamous cell carcinomas are briefly discussed, followed by post-radiation sarcomas. Most cases of post-radiation cutaneous sarcomas are angiosarcoma, malignant fibrous histiocytoma, leiomyosarcoma and fibrosarcoma. In cases of radiotherapy for breast cancer, angiosarcomas are the most frequently found malignant sarcomas worldwide (incidence 0...

We analyzed the clinicopathological features of 9 breast malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH) patients. Immunohistochemistry was used to make both diagnosis and differential diagnosis, and to identify prognostic factors. All tumors lacked epithelial markers but expressed mesenchymal markers, suggesting a mesenchymal origin. Of the five cases expressing Ki-67, two of three patients with axillary lymph node involvement died between 6-8 months, and two died at 17 and 26 months after diagnosis. The two remaining cases, with low Ki-67 expression, had no recurrent or metastatic disease at 145 months after diagnosis...

Malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH) is the most common soft tissue sarcoma of adults, but its presence in the breast is rare. We report a case of primary inflammatory MFH in a 72-year-old Caucasian female with no previous medical history and no prior radiation exposure. She presented with a palpable mass that was suspicious for malignancy on mammography. Histologic evaluation of the core needle biopsy revealed sheets of large, pleomorphic neoplastic cells within a dense background of acute and chronic inflammatory cells...

Seven years ago, a 48-year-old female patient discovered a painless tumor in her right breast simply by chance. In the next year, the tumor increased significantly in size. At this point, the patient received a tumor resection, which was misdiagnosed as a benign mesenchymal tissue-originated tumor. Unfortunately, the tumor recurred just 10 days after resection. We subsequently resected the recurrent lesion and confirmed primary breast malignant fibrous histiocytoma. The tumor began to exhibit an unprecedented, massive, and uncontrolled growth, ulcerating soon after the operation...

MALIGNANT FIBROUS HISTIOCYTOMA (MFH) IS A FAIRLY COMMON TUMOR IN THE DEEP SOFT TISSUES: the most frequent primary sites are the lower (49%) and upper (19%) limbs, but it has been reported even in the retroperitoneum and abdomen (16%), while localization in the breast is extremely rare (1-2). Breast cancer is rarely seen in males, accounts for approximately 1% of all breast cancer, and the breast sarcomas constitute less than 1% of breast tumors in both sexes. In the review of the literature, this is the third male and first young male with MFH...
