In total, 95% of primary tumors in the pancreas are epithelial tumors; primary mesenchymal tumors at this site are extremely rare. At present, only one comprehensive study about these rare tumors has been performed. Another retrospective analysis of these rare tumors is performed in the present study, which, to the best of our knowledge, is the first to be performed in China. In the present study, 10 patients that underwent resection for primary mesenchymal tumors of the pancreas were identified in a 15-year period at the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and Peking Union Medical College, which accounted for 0...

OBJECTIVES: Extrathoracic solitary fibrous tumors (ESFTs) are rare low-to-intermediate grade spindle-cell neoplasms of pluripotent fibroblastic or myofibroblastic origin. This review explores prognostic factors in the management of ESFTs and provides guidance on optimal treatment regimens based on the current literature. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Electronic searches were performed using MEDLINE, Embase, and the Cochrane library to identify studies on prognostic factors in the management of ESFTs published between January 1970 and June 2016...

This report presents a rare case involving a patient with a giant leiomyoma originating from the mediastinal pleura. The patient underwent a medical examination, and chest radiography revealed a giant tumor. Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed a well demarcated, heterogeneous mass which seemed to originate from the posterior mediastinum. Positron emission tomography (PET) showed the uptake of this tumor with a standardized uptake value of 4.9. We suspected that this tumor was a solitary fibrous tumor, and the patient underwent a surgical resection...

Pancreas is an extremely rare abdominal localization of the solitary fibrous tumor (SFT). It usually grows asymptomatically for a long time before a diagnosis can be made on the basis of symptoms and/or mechanical complications. Due to the rarity and nonspecific clinical presentation, this entity is diagnostically challenging. We present a 47-year-old man with a history of progressive epigastric pain for the last two weeks, and jaundice, who was admitted to hospital for further investigation. Cystadenocarcinoma was suspected based on the radiologic findings, and a pancreatoduodenectomy was performed...

The classification of atypical adipocytic neoplasms with spindle cell features remains challenging. To better define this category of low-grade lipomatous neoplasms, we present herein the clinical, histologic, and immunohistochemical characteristics of a large series of 232 atypical spindle cell lipomatous tumors. The lesions affected 140 males and 92 females, at an average age of 54 years (range, 6 to 87 y), clinically presenting as a persistent or enlarging mass with a median size of 5 cm. The anatomic distribution of the tumors was wide, predominating in the limbs and limb girdles (147 cases, 63%), mainly in the hands and feet (17% and 11%, respectively), with equal distribution between subcutaneous and deeper locations...

In solitary fibrous tumors (SFTs) of the pleura, malignant SFTs are uncommon. Although SFTs are known to cause paraneoplastic syndromes through the production of insulin-like growth factor, to the best of our knowledge, the production of beta-human chorionic gonadotropin (β-hCG) has been reported only in 1 case involving a patient with a benign SFT. We herein report the first case of the elevation of β-hCG serum levels associated with a malignant SFT in which the β-hCG serum level became a useful indicator of recurrence after the complete resection of the primary mediastinal lesion...

Solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura (SFTP) is a rare intrathoracic neoplasm, often giant in size and highly vascular, which can make surgical resection very challenging. Preoperative percutaneous embolization before surgical removal can significantly reduce the risk of uncontrollable intraoperative hemorrhage. However, a rare potential life threatening complication could result from embolization of SFTP and must be taken into consideration. This report describes a 69-year-old female with a large right thoracic SFTP, who underwent preoperative angiography and embolization and developed diffuse embolic brain infarcts immediately after the administration of polyvinyl alcohol particles...

BACKGROUND: Surgical excision with wide margins, prevention of respiratory impairment, and protection of surrounding organs are primary goals in resection and reconstruction of the chest wall. We describe our experience of the use of cadaveric cryopreserved sternal allograft. METHODS: Eighteen patients underwent surgery. Indications for sternectomy were sternal metastases (n = 9), primary chondrosarcoma (n = 4), sternal dehiscence (n = 2), soft tissue sarcoma (n = 1), malignant solitary fibrous tumor (n = 1), and direct involvement of thymic carcinoma (n = 1)...

Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is a derived mesenchymal tumor from spindle cells, mostly occurred in the pleura. To analyze the clinical features of the SFT, data for a patient with SFT that involved in the pleura were retrospectively analyzed by assisted thoracoscope in the Affiliated Hospital of Zunyi Medical College in August 2015. The male patient was 45 years old, who showed the main clinical symptoms of chest pain, cough, sputum, and dyspnea. Large amount of right pleural effusion, chest space-occupying lesions were found by chest CT, suggesting a malignant tumor with metastasis at the 2nd and 3rd right rib...

BACKGROUND: Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is a mesenchymal tumor which is most commonly seen in the pleura; however it can be seen in other organs such as the meninge, gastrointestinal tract, soft tissue, bone, and skin. SFT should be differentiated from other mesenchymal tumors in these organs. Immunohistochemistry plays a pivotal role for the histopathologic diagnosis of this tumor. Currently, new markers have been introduced which has been very useful for definite diagnosis of SFT along with other markers in each specific location which are negative in SFT...

Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is a rare neoplasia of mesenchymal origin, initially described in visceral pleura and lately discovered to have ubiquitous distribution. SFT of the urogenital tract is uncommon and appears to have similar morphologic features and biologic behaviors as SFTs found elsewhere. We present two new cases of SFT of the bladder and review 22 similar cases published in the literature. Due to the general indolent behavior of these lesions, a complete but organ sparing surgical excision should be considered when technically feasible...

BACKGROUND: Conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is considered a valuable tool for preoperative diagnosis of intracranial tumors. We assessed its accuracy in the diagnosis of intracranial tumors in usual clinical practice. MATERIALS AND METHODS: MRI reports of 762 patients who had undergone conventional brain MRI prior to surgery were retrospectively reviewed. A 4-grade scoring system was devised to establish diagnostic agreement. Each tumor type was compared with the corresponding pathological diagnoses by dichotomization...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Magnetic resonance-guided laser-induced thermotherapy (MR-LITT) is a minimally invasive technique that shows promise in neuro-oncology due to its superiority in delivering precise minimally invasive thermal energy with minimal collateral damage. In this analysis we investigate initial data on MR-LITT's effect on dural based lesions. METHODS: Five patients were identified with dural based lesions (4 meningiomas, 1 solitary fibrous tumor) with clear evidence of radiological progression...

Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is an uncommon neoplasm of mesenchymal origin, which can be benign or malignant. Most SFTs develop from the pleura, but they can also be found in other sites. There are only few reports of SFT occurring in the breast. We herein report such a rare case. Sonography demonstrated an ovoid lesion mimicking a fibroadenoma, whereas color Doppler imaging showed marked internal vascularity. A brief literature review on imaging features of SFTs is added. © 2016 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Clin Ultrasound, 2016...
