Synovial sarcoma foot

E Mascard, N Gaspar, L Brugières, C Glorion, S Pannier, A Gomez-Brouchet
Most of tumours of the foot are tumour-like (synovial cyst, foreign body reactions and epidermal inclusion cyst) or benign conditions (tenosynovial giant cells tumours, planta fibromatosis). Malignant tumours of the soft-tissue and skeleton are very rare in the foot and their diagnosis is often delayed with referral to specialised teams after initial inappropriate procedures or unplanned excisions. The adverse effect of these misdiagnosed tumours is the increasing rate of amputation or local recurrences in the involved patients...

The authors present a distinctive perineurioma (PN) variant which morphologically strongly resembles monophasic fibrous synovial sarcoma (MSS). The patients were 3 males and 1 female. The age ranged from 15 to 61years (mean: 44years). Locations included the sole, lower jaw, palm and foot. The tumor size ranged from 1.3cm to 2.5cm in the largest dimension (mean 1.8cm). Morphologically, all tumors had an identical, monotonous appearance. The perineurial cells were closely packed and created a confluent cellular whorls and/or sheets in a scarce stroma, with only focally discernible long, slender cytoplasmic processes typical for perineurial differentiation...

BACKGROUND: Regorafenib is a multikinase inhibitor with proven activity in refractory gastrointestinal stromal tumours and chemotherapy-refractory advanced colorectal cancers. We assessed this agent's efficacy and safety in patients with metastatic soft tissue sarcomas previously treated with anthracycline. METHODS: In this randomised, double-blind, phase 2 trial undertaken in France and Austria, we enrolled patients aged 18 years and older with advanced soft tissue sarcomas who had received previous doxorubicin or other anthracycline treatment...

Soft tissue sarcomas of the foot and ankle are common. Currently, there exist limited data on prognostic variables. The aim of this study was to review our institution's experience with soft tissue sarcomas of the foot and ankle to identify factors affecting outcomes and survivorship. We reviewed the records of 62 foot and ankle soft tissue sarcomas treated with definitive surgery at our institution between 1992 and 2013. The cohort consisted of 35 males and 27 females with a mean age at diagnosis of 45 years and a mean follow-up of 7 years...

The purpose of this case report is to present a rare finding of synovial sarcoma in a 5-year-old child. Most soft-tissue masses of the foot are too often presumed to be small and benign; therefore, compared with soft-tissue sarcomas, they are difficult to clinically differentiate and treat. A 5-year-old girl presented with a painful lesion that was diagnosed as synovial sarcoma after an excisional biopsy was performed. This was an unexpected finding of synovial sarcoma involving the tibialis posterior tendon of her right foot...

During recent decades, the concept of surgical treatment of malignant bone and soft tissue sarcomas has evolved, with the aim of preserving limb function. In this paper we report a case of metatarsal reconstruction by means of serratus and rib free flap after excision of a synovial sarcoma located in the dorsal aspect of the midfoot. Five years after the operation, the patient was free from recurrence and recovered full foot function. Amputation has been widely used in the past and this procedure still remains a valuable option when limb salvage is not possible...

BACKGROUND: Although the majority of soft tissue masses are benign, it is important to consider malignancy in differential diagnoses. Because most soft tissue sarcomas present as a painless mass, clinicians must watch for signs suggestive of malignancy, including large size, rapid growth, and site deep into the deep fascia. The purpose of this study was to determine the relative prevalence according to sex and age, site of tumor, skeletal distribution, and treatment (surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy) before and after surgery, and ascertain the relative frequency of these tumors in specific anatomic sites and age groups based on pathological studies...

Clear cell sarcoma of tendons and aponeuroses is a rare, high grade malignant soft tissue tumor resembling melanoma and soft tissue sarcomas. Clinical and Imaging Presentation: The median age at presentation is 27 years and the most common location are the foot and the ankle. MR imaging typically shows a benign looking, well defined, homogenous mass; on T1-weighted MR images, it is usually homogeneous and isointense or slight hyperintense to muscle, whereas on T2-weighted MR images, it is usually more heterogeneous with variable signal intensity...

BACKGROUND: Soft tissue defects over the mid- and distal third tibia, heel, dorsum and plantar aspect of the foot and over the medial, lateral and posterior aspect of the ankle are a common scenario in clinical orthopaedic practice. In this article, we describe the utility of the reverse sural fasciocutaneous flap with a cutaneous pedicle in 109 clinical cases with distal lower limb soft tissue defects. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 109 patients were operated on for moderate (5-15 cm) and large (more than 15 cm) soft tissue defects at various sites along the lower limb including foot, heel and sole with the reverse sural fasciocutaneous flap...

The conventional free radial forearm flap is a very reliable, long-pedicled flap with thin, pliable skin. These properties make it an excellent choice for high-risk reconstructions or defects requiring only a thin cover. The split radial forearm flap allows primary closure of the donor site and has a large variability in shape and size. In this report, the cutaneous perforators of the radial artery were investigated in fresh cadavers and we present our clinical experience with the split radial artery flap in 9 patients with lower leg defects...

We report the case of a 75-year-old male who underwent lung lobectomy for presumed lung cancer. Thereafter, he presented with a painful mass between the third and fourth metatarsal heads in the foot that was assumed to be Morton's neuroma. After extensive oncologic evaluation, the foot mass was diagnosed as a synovial sarcoma. In retrospect, his lung lesion was understood to be metastatic disease.

Giant cell tumour of tendon sheath is a benign soft tissue lesion most commonly found in the flexor aspect of hand and wrist. Being rare in foot and ankle, the unusual presentation of this lesion may sometimes mimic other lesions like lipoma, synovial sarcoma, malignant fibrous histiocytoma, synovial cyst and ganglion. Hence it is important to include this lesion in differential diagnoses especially if the lesion is found to be anchored to any of the surrounding tendons. This article describes the unusual occurrence of giant cell tumour of the tendon sheath of peroneus brevis which is rarely described in literature...

Synovial sarcoma which mainly affects the periarticular tissues of the extremities in young adults is an uncommon seen soft tissue sarcoma with uncertain causative factors. We report a long-course primary synovial sarcoma of the left foot in a 46-year-old man. The initial symptom occurred when he was 26-year-old. During these 20 years, he underwent two operations, with the diagnosis of synovial cyst and nodular synovitis. This time, a lobulated 7 x 5.5 x 6 cm mass was found on computed tomography, and a final diagnosis of synovial sarcoma was made by histological study...

Extra skeletal soft tissue chondroma is a very rare, slow progressing, benign tumor. It has a specific tendency for hands and feet. It can sometimes be misdiagnosed as a synovial cyst or a more serious condition such as synovial sarcoma. Moreover, it can exhibit worrying radiologic and histological features mimicking chondrosarcomas. This study presents a very rare case of soft tissue chondroma of the foot.

Malignant foot tumours are often treated with amputations due to anatomical difficulties. Limb salvage techniques are difficult to perform, as a stable, sensible and plantigrade foot should be obtained to prevent further problems.In this report, we present a midfoot reconstruction with a vascularized free fibula, osteomized in a V-shape after wide resection of a midfoot synovial sarcoma. We describe the reconstruction of both longitudinal arches in which using a vascularized autograft facilitated union, remodeling of the bone, and obtaining a functional foot...

BACKGROUND: Malignant soft tissue tumors of the foot are extremely rare and thus can be prematurely excised without appropriate preoperative evaluation. The present study compares adverse effects between unplanned and planned surgical excisions. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the clinical records, radiographs, pathology reports and pathological specimens of 14 consecutive patients with soft tissue sarcoma of the foot among 592 with sarcomas between 1973 and 2009...

We recognized immunoreactivity for the α subset of inhibin and synaptophysin in synovial sarcomas with granular cell features. Histologic findings of 90 cases of synovial sarcoma were reviewed. Two (2.2%) of the 90 cases had granular cell features, showing sheet or nested proliferation of characteristic epithelioid cells with abundant eosinophilic and granular cytoplasm, in addition to the typical spindle cell component. The 2 cases were both female (aged 86 and 76 years). The tumors were located in the foot and the retroperitoneum and measured 3...

Mycetoma, also commonly referred to as Madura foot, is statistically rare in the United States. However, it is endemic to other parts of the world. It is a pseudotumor characterized by a triad of tumefaction, draining sinuses, and grains. Two types exist, with each caused by different groups of organisms that require different treatment approaches. Therefore, the exact diagnosis and culture of the organism is vital to successful treatment outcomes. Synovial sarcoma, in contrast, is a malignancy much more commonly seen in the United States...
