Context: Tumors of the central nervous system (CNS) constitute the second most common pediatric cancers. Unlike leukemia, management of CNS tumors requires a good multidisciplinary team. Higher rates of treatment abandonment are documented in view of complexity of the treatment with long duration, involving neurosurgery, radiation, chemotherapy, and high cost of treatment. Morbidity associated with CNS tumors may be significant in terms of physical deficits as well as neuropsychological and neuroendocrine sequelae...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This article describes the most common pediatric brain tumors and highlights recent developments in their diagnosis and treatment strategies. RECENT FINDINGS: We are in the midst of a molecular era for pediatric brain tumors. Genetic and epigenetic profiling of tumors has impacted their diagnosis, allowing for the subgrouping of heterogeneous tumor groups and leading to the complete renaming of some tumor types. These advances are reflected in the new 2016 World Health Organization classification...

Sarcomas represent less than 1% of all malignant tumors found in the thyroid. Of these, primary extraosseoussarcoma has been reported only a few times in the past decade. We present the case of a 34-year-old male who had a fast-growing hard mass in the lower left neck. FNA was inconclusive. Core needle biopsy revealed the diagnosis of an Ewing sarcoma/primitive neuroectodermal tumor. Mutation of EWSR1 was confirmed using the FISH method. Following treatment by neoadjuvant chemotherapy, we observed clinical, radiological, and finally histopathological remission...

Lungs are one of most metastatic areas for primitive neuroectodermal tumor (PNET), however primary pulmonary PNET is extremely rare. Here we present a case of a 58-year-old male patient with a tumor in the right lung that originated from the lung but not from chest wall. Patient was diagnosed with PNET following histological and immunohistochemical examination of CT-guided percutaneous tru-cut needle biopsy and no distant metastasis were detected in PET-CT scan. As advised recently in published literature, surgical resection following neoadjuvant chemotherapy protocol is preferred in the treatment of our patient as it has better success of complete resection leading to higher 5-year survival rates...

Ewing's sarcoma/primitive neuroectodermal tumor (EWS/PNET) in the kidney is a rare but high-grade malignant tumor that affects predominantly elder children and adolescents. Patients mostly present with nonspecific symptoms such as abdominal pain and gross hematuria. Since EWS/PNET has a rapid clinical progression with early metastasis and death, it is essential to make an accurate and early diagnosis. Once diagnosed, multimodality treatment, including radical surgery combined with adjuvant chemotherapy, and radiotherapy if necessary, is recommended...

AIMS: Malignant ectomesenchymoma is a rare pediatric neoplasm with dual mesenchymal and neuroectodermal elements. Mesenchymal component is usually rhabdomyosarcoma, particularly embryonal subtype, whereas neuroectodermal derivatives are frequently a neuroblastic tumor. Ectomesenchymoma manifests in various sites given the wide migration of neural crest cells during development, though the pelvis/perineum is most often involved. Moreover, no unique unifying molecular abnormality has been determined...

Melanotic neuroectodermal tumor of infancy is uncommon and has rapid expansile growth. Melanotic neuroectodermal tumor of infancy is a very rare and benign but locally aggressive neoplasm that originates from neural crest and is composed of relatively primitive pigment-producing cells. The lesion commonly affects the maxilla of infants during the first year of life. Common treatment methods include surgical excision and resection of the tumor. The aim of this article is to present the diagnosis and treatment of a patient with melanotic neuroectodermal tumor that occurred in the anterior maxilla of a 6-month-old male baby...

Wegener's granulomatosis (WG) is characterized by necrotizing polyangiitis involving the respiratory tract and kidneys. It causes segmental necrotizing glomerulonephritis in the kidneys. In rare cases, a renal pseudotumor may be seen because of the granulomatous process. Association of WG with renal malignancy, however, is very uncommon. We report a case of a patient who presented several years after being treated for WG with malignant hypertension and an infiltrating mass in the right kidney. The histopathology of radical nephrectomy specimen showed presence of primitive neuroectodermal tumor (PNET)...

BACKGROUND: Rhabdomyosarcomas are malignant tumors arising from striated muscle but can be often confused with primitive neuroectodermal tumors and Ewing sarcoma. They are often classified based on age of presentation and histological features. Three major types of rhabdomyosarcomas are embryonal, alveolar, and pleomorphic with characteristic presentations. METHOD: Here, we present a case of embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma in the hand of a 5-month-old child with lymphatic metastasis, the age, site, and metastasis being unusual feature for this type of rhabdomyosarcoma...

Primitive neuroectodermal tumors (PNET) are aggressive neoplasms of neuroectodermal origin. Although they are known to arise in a host of locations, involvement of the trachea has rarely been reported. We describe an adolescent girl who presented with stridor and was diagnosed with PNET of the trachea. She is in remission following treatment with combination chemotherapy and local radiotherapy.

BACKGROUND: Olfactory neuroblastoma (ONB) is a rare malignant neuroectodermal tumor of the nasal cavity. Mixed olfactory neuroblastoma which contains areas of divergent differentiation is even rare. Till date, only 4 cases of mixed olfactory neuroblastomas have been reported. CASE DESCRIPTION: We report the case of a 46-year-old male who presented with the chief complaints of nasal bleeding and nasal obstruction since 4 months. Radiological imaging was suggestive of a large heterogeneous mass in the left superior nasal cavity with extensions into bilateral maxillary, ethmoidal, and sphenoidal sinuses, as well as into the anterior cranial fossa...

Ewing sarcomas/primitive neuroectodermal tumors (ES/PNET) of the kidney are rarely found high-grade malignant tumors, offering poor prognosis. Although established treatment guidelines for ES of kidney are scarce, a multi-modality treatment approached is typically implemented. Herein, we report a 14-year-old female patient with ES of right kidney. Post-nephrectomy disease recurrence was treated with chemotherapy (i.e., vincristine, doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide); marked reduction in tumor size (i.e., from 18...

BACKGROUND: Ewing's sarcoma (ES) and primitive neuroectodermal tumors (PNET) are closely related tumors. Although soft tissue ES/PNET are common in clinical practice, they are rare in the small intestine. Because of the absence of characteristic clinical symptoms, they are easily misdiagnosed as other benign or malignant diseases. CASE PRESENTATION: Here, we present the case of a 16-year-old female who complained of anemia and interval hematochezia. Her serum test results showed only a slight elevation of CA-125 and a low level of hemoglobin...
