A recurrent YAP1-TFE3 gene fusion has been identified in WWTR1-CAMTA1-negative epithelioid hemangioendotheliomas arising in soft tissue, bone, and lung, but not in liver. We present the first case of TFE3-rearranged hepatic epithelioid hemangioendothelioma in a 39-year-old Taiwanese woman. Computed tomography scan revealed multifocal, ill-defined nodules involving both hepatic lobes. She then underwent deceased donor liver transplantation. Histologically, the tumors in the liver explant showed a biphasic growth pattern...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the utility of GLUT1 as an immunohistochemical marker in the diagnostics of cutaneous vascular anomalies. METHODS: A systematic literature search was conducted for studies on GLUT1 staining patterns in cutaneous vascular lesions. Data was grouped according to the latest ISSVA classification for vascular anomalies. RESULTS: Vascular tumors: GLUT1 staining was positive in 368/386 (95%) of infantile hemangiomas. Congenital hemangiomas (16 cases) and kaposiform hemangioendotheliomas (62 cases) were all negative for GLUT1...

Primary adrenal angiosarcoma is an extremely rare vascular tumor. We report a case of a 63-year-old man with a collision tumor of epithelioid angiosarcoma and adrenocortical adenoma of the right adrenal gland. The adrenal tumor was incidentally observed by a preoperative computed tomography (CT) scan of penis squamous cell carcinoma. The patient underwent a right laparoscopic adrenalectomy, and the tumor size measured 34×34×15mm. Histological examination revealed two different tumor cell proliferations, namely epithelioid angiosarcoma and adrenocortical adenoma...

We describe the case of a 67 year old female with longstanding uterine leiomyomas who presented with fatigue, weight loss, elevated CA-125 and an enlarging mass arising from the posterior uterine fundus. Histologic sections of the mass contained a leiomyoma with interspersed foci of malignant epithelioid cells forming anastomosing vascular channels. The neoplastic cells were diffusely positive for CD31 and FLI1, supporting the morphologic impression of epithelioid angiosarcoma. Few cases of epithelioid angiosarcoma arising within a leiomyoma have been described...

BACKGROUND: Epithelioid angiosarcoma is a kind of high grade malignancy sarcoma of soft tissue, which is hard to diagnose and completely exsect without causing functional and cosmetic problems. Moreover, the high rate of recurrence is hard to handle. Photodynamic therapy is a novel treatment protocol which can selectively destroy tumor cell with good functional and cosmetic outcomes. METHODS: This is a case about a 81 years old patient with Epithelioid angiosarcoma in the right medial angle of eye, which received surgery and photodynamic therapy...

Our reported case is a 72 year-old man who presented with hematuria. A transurethral resection of the bladder tumor (TURB-T) has been performed. Histopathological diagnosis was an epithelioid angiosarcoma. CT scan revealed a bladder thickening. The treatment consisted in a complete pelvectomy with urinary and digestive diversion. Following the operation, the patient developed liver and pulmonary metastasis. He died 5 months after the initial diagnosis.

Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma is a rare vascular tumour, with features between hemangiomas and angiosarcomas. Evolution remains mainly local but may also metastasize. Here, we report a case of a patient with a spinal epithelioid hemangioendothelioma. After a first resection, local recurrence required a new excision and external radiotherapy. It was achieved by helical TomoTherapy(®) with intensity modulation. During the follow-up, a second inoperable spinal location necessitated a new sequence of radiotherapy in modulation of intensity with integrated boost...

Angiosarcoma (AS) is a malignant mesenchymal neoplasm of endothelial origin with a predominantly lymphatic immunophenotype, which accounts for less than 1% of all sarcomas. Cutaneous AS of the scalp is associated with high rates of local recurrence and a poor prognosis. Histologically, poorly differentiated AS often comprises solid epithelioid cells, although rare variants involving spindle cells have been reported; diagnosis requires immunohistochemical analysis using vascular cell markers. We report on a cutaneous spindle-cell AS of the scalp in a female patient; key features included spontaneous regression after biopsy, local recurrence 2 years later, and aberrant nuclear staining for S100 protein in an area of the tumor not expressing CD34 or D2-40...

A 72-year-old female was referred for further evaluation of epigastralgia. Abdominal contrast computed tomography revealed numerous tumors in the two lobes of the liver. Liver biopsy and immunohistochemical staining revealed that the tumor cells were positive for factor VIII-associated antigen, platelet endothelial cell adhesion molecule 1 and human hematopoietic progenitor cell antigen, concordant with a diagnosis of hepatic epithelioid hemangioendothelioma (HEH). To elucidate the etiology of HEH, particularly the microRNA (miRNA) profiles, tissue samples obtained from normal and tumor tissues were analyzed using a miRNA array system...

Angiosarcomas are highly aggressive malignancies of vascular origin and are very rarely found in children. We report a case of a 13-year-old girl with a history of abdominal pain and increased abdominal girth. Radiologic imaging showed significant ascites and large pelvic masses involving bilateral adnexa with abdominal spread. Microscopic examination of a biopsy revealed pleomorphic epithelioid and spindle cells with brisk mitotic activity, intracytoplasmic vacuoles, vascular channels, and large areas of hemorrhage and necrosis...

Most common tumors of the spleen are hematologic and lymphoid malignancies. Non-lymphoid and non-hematologic tumors of the spleen are very rare, the most common of which are vascular tumors. This group of tumors in the spleen is composed of heterogeneous tumors such as hemangioma, angioendothelioma (AE), littoral cell angioma, and angiosarcoma. There are several histologic forms of AE such as epithelioid AE, Kaposiform AE, and myoid AE. Among these splenic vascular tumors, myoid angioendothelioma (MAE) seems to be the least common type...

The adrenal primary epithelioid angiosarcoma (ASE) is a rare malignant tumor which can be histologically confused with other neoplasms. We report one case in a 79-year-old man who underwent adrenal tumor surgery for a mass fortuitly discovered by imaging for examination of an inflammatory syndrome associated with anemia. The histological diagnosis was difficult because of the undifferentiated and epithelioid appearance of tumor cells, whose immunohistochemical epithelial markers positivity led to frequent confusion with a metastatic carcinoma...

Bone epithelioid hemangiomas are classified within benign vascular tumours but are commonly misdiagnosed as low-grade angiosarcomas or epithelioid hemangioendotheliomas. Current therapeutic interventions include various treatment options but local recurrence or distal lymph node involvement has been reported. We report a rare case of scapular epithelioid hemangioma that was initially treated using a combination of chemoembolization and microwave ablation. This combination has not been previously reported in the literature regarding the management of this tumour...

Pseudomyogenic (epithelioid sarcoma-like) hemangioendothelioma is a distinctive vascular neoplasm of intermediate biological potential with a predilection for young adults and frequent multifocal presentation. Pseudomyogenic hemangioendothelioma is characterized by loose fascicles of plump spindled and epithelioid cells with abundant eosinophilic cytoplasm and coexpression of keratins and endothelial markers. Recently, a SERPINE1-FOSB fusion has been identified as a consistent genetic alteration in pseudomyogenic hemangioendothelioma...

Epithelioid angiosarcoma of the vagina is a rare variant, easily misdiagnosed as other epithelial neoplasms. On Hematoxylin-Eosin-stained sections, the pathologist encounters sheets of large, mildly to moderately pleomorphic epithelioid cells, with abundant eosinophilic cytoplasm, vesicular nuclei, and prominent nucleoli. We report the case of a 22-year-old woman initially diagnosed with condiloma-like tumor of the left vaginal wall, which turned out positive at immunostaining for epithelioid angiosarcoma. In her case, after the failure of chemotherapy in controlling the relapse of the disease, the only treatment option was radical hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy...

This review considers neoplastic lesions that originate in the skin, and which have the potential to imitate hematopoietic proliferations at a histological level. They include lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma, Merkel cell carcinoma, benign lymphadenoma, pseudolymphomatous angiosarcoma, lymphadenoid dermatofibroma, lymphomatoid atypical fibroxanthoma, histiocytoid (epithelioid) hemangioma, and inflamed melanocytic lesions. The clinical and pathological features of those tumors are considered.

Angiosarcoma (AS) is the most common cardiac sarcoma with differentiation, and is poorly characterized from a molecular genetic standpoint. Prognosis remains poor, owing to several factors including aggressive tumor biology, poor response to adjuvant therapy, and lack of targeted therapy. The clinical, pathologic and molecular cytogenetic features were studied in ten cardiac AS surgically resected at Mayo Clinic (1994-2015) using a whole-genome, single-nucleotide polymorphism-based platform (OncoScan). Mean patient age was 47...

Angiosarcoma of the lower urinary tract is exceedingly rare. A minority of cases are associated with local radiotherapy. Epithelioid angiosarcoma is a variant of angiosarcoma composed of large rounded epithelioid endothelial cells that are positive for cytokeratin on immunostaining. There are only two cases of post-radiation epithelioid angiosarcoma reported in the urinary bladder, and none in the prostate gland. We report a case of epithelioid angiosarcoma involving the urinary bladder and prostate in a patient with a history of radiotherapy for prostatic adenocarcinoma...

BACKGROUND: The rate of lymph node (LN) metastasis is rare in soft tissue sarcoma, but there are histologic subtypes that metastasize via the lymphatics. The prognostic value of LN evaluation in these high-risk histologies is unknown. METHODS: Resected soft-tissue sarcoma patients with clear cell sarcoma, epithelioid sarcoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, or angiosarcoma (n = 2993) were identified in the National Cancer Data Base (2004-2013). Cox regression evaluated the association of omission of LN assessment (NX) and overall survival (OS)...
