A total of 29 DFSP and 5 GCF were analyzed by immunohistochemistry for expression of CD99. Twenty-three of 29 DFSP (79%) and 2 of 5 GCP (40%) expressed CD99. Comparison of CD99 and CD34 showed that the non-tumoral periphery of DFSP was less probable to be CD99 positive, but this finding was not statistically significant In DFSP, tumor cells in the superficial dermis, when present, were always CD99 negative. In contrast, DF cells in the superficial dermis always demonstrated strong CD99 positivity. CONCLUSIONS: DF strongly expresses CD99 in a diffuse pattern that may serve as evidence in distinction from DFSP Both components expressed CD34 and CD99, and lacked elastin. A review of the microscopic slides of the patient's previously excised DFSP revealed an identical lesion with surrounding NTF-like areas. CONCLUSION: While an association between NTF and fibromatosis has recently been reported, this is to our knowledge the first report of an. Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) represents a locally aggressive mesenchymal neoplasm of skin and subcutis with characteristic clinicopathologic, immunohistochemical, and molecular findings. In addition to typical cases, morphologic variants such as pigmented, fibrosarcomatous, myofibroblastic, and granular cell DFSP have been described vimentin, and CD99 but negative for factor XIIIa, S-100, actin, and desmin.1,3 DFSP is thought to result from the reciprocal translocation t(17;22)(q22;q13), leading to fusion of the collagen, type I, alpha 1 and PDGFB genes that cause aberrant activation of the PDGF receptor and subsequent stimulation of cell growth.1,2,

Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is a locally aggressive, slow‐growing, cutaneous tumor with a high local recurrence rate, but it rarely metastasizes. The histological morphology of DFSP can be divided into more than 10 subtypes. and negative for factor XIIIa, S‐100 protein, CD31, CD99, CD117, CK, ALK, and Desmin Synovial sarcomas, which are similar to DFSP, yield cellular smears with poorly cohesive clusters and dissociated bland-looking spindle cells 27 (Fig. 10A) that are positive for CD99 and focally positive for EMA and keratin (Fig. 10B) CD34+, ß-catenin+, CD99+, MIB1 50% R0 87 10 B M DFSP 46 Trunk On normal cutis 3.3 3 Primary n/a CD34+, PDGFR- alpha+, PDGFR- beta+.

  1. Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is a rare malignant tumor of subcutaneous tissue characterized by slow infiltrative growth. The tumor occurs in patients of all ages, with the highest frequency occurring between the second and the fifth decades of age. Genetically, DFSP is characterized by a reciprocal translocation t(17;22)(q22;q13), or more often, as a supernumerary ring chromosome.

The tumor was immunoreactive to cluster of differentiation (CD) 34 while negative for S100 protein, Melan-A, tyrosinase, MART-1 (melanocytic antigen recognized by cytotoxic T lymphocytes 1), human herpesvirus 8, cytokeratin, and smooth muscle actin (SMA)

Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is a relatively rare tumor. Estimates of the overall incidence of DFSP in the United States are 0.8 to 4.5 cases per million persons per year . In the United States, DFSP accounts for between 1 and 6 percent of all soft tissue sarcomas and 18 percent of all cutaneous soft tissue sarcomas Hemangiopericytoma Solitary Fibrous Tumor; Sheets of cells, usually no collagen separation: Bands of collagen separate cells: Staghorn vessels require Pathophysiology. Prevents cells from undergoing apoptosis. BCL2 overexpression increase lifespan of B cells; may maintain memory B cells, plasma cells and neurons by prolonging life span without cell division. May participate in ion channel formation and alteration of membrane permeability, necessary for initiation of apoptosis Recently, CD99 was shown to be diffusely expressed in DF thus providing another potential option for distinguishing the two tumors. Advanced techniques for distinguishing the tumors include fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) probe analysis for the t(17;22) translocation found in DFSP or array-based comparative genomic hybridization (CGH.

The whole tumor bed was grafted with a split thickness skin graft. The closest margin without a fascial boundry was 2.5 cm, a very adequate margin for a resection. DFSP is positive for vimentin, CD99 and CD34 but negative for FXIIIa [15]. Compared to 0-3 mitoses per 10 high-power fields (HPF) in the DFSP component, the sarcomatous component has 2-16 mitoses per 10 HPF [3]. The Bednar or pigmented variant, with melanin-containing cells is another infrequen The expression of CD99 and SMA(smooth muscle actin) is variable among lesions. DFSP has morphological variants that share similar clinical, histological, and immunohistochemical features. Myxoid DFSP (Bednar tumor), giant cell fibroblastoma, fibrosarcomatous DFSP, granular cell DFSP, and atrophic and palisading variants are among them

Even though both are strongly positive for CD34, superficial acral fibromyxoma is usually positive for CD99 and sometimes positive for EMA, For example, atrophic DFSP was initially diagnosed in a 6-year-old Korean girl who presented with a solitary congenital 4.0-cm plaque of CD34 diffusely positive spindle cell dermal proliferation. 43.

Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is a locally aggressive but rarely metastasizing, fibroblastic neoplasm that typically presents as a nodular and multinodular cutaneous mass on the trunk and proximal extremities of young to middle-aged adults [1, 2].Classically, DFSP is composed of fairly uniform, mildly atypical spindle cells, often arranged in tight storiform, whorled, or cartwheel.

Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is a malignant condition that exhibits different clinical behaviors ranging from low to high aggressive SFT.

Cellular angiofibroma (CAF) is an uncommon benign mesenchymal tumour that occurs in both sexes, mainly in the genital region.

A detailed discussion of each specific sarcoma subtype is beyond the scope of this chapter. We will instead present detailed information on four specific sarcomas, including Ewing's sarcomas (ES), dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP), gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs), and rhabdomyosarcomas (RMS) Accidently, the lesion location was scratched after surgery. by a cat 3 months ago. From then on, the mass grew rapidly. In summary, we report a rare patient with DFSP who The patient was in good health. There had been no similar presented clinically with a firm, nontender, flesh-colored, history of this appearance in his family Immunohistochemistry is a useful adjunct to the diagnosis of DFSP as long as it is understood that other dermal and subcutaneous spindle cell tumors are CD34+. 122 Typically, CD34 staining is uniformly and diffusely positive (Figures 24-29 and 24-30), but other markers have been reported to facilitate the diagnosis including CD99, D2-40, and.

CD99 is highly expressed in CD34 + bone marrow cells and in leukocytes, whatever the lineage, and it is a determinant in the orientation of immune response . As CD99 expression is usually lost in the dedifferentiated SFT (in the DD zones), it is probable that CD99 would act also as a tumor suppressor in the context of SFT Immunohistochemistry (IHC) is the use of antibody-based reagents for localization of specific epitopes in tissue sections. Over the past several decades, IHC has become a powerful tool to assist the surgical pathologist in many clinically critical settings. It is important to recognize that IHC has two components, each with its own strengths and weaknesses Non-lymphoid mesenchymal neoplasms of salivary gland origin are rare, accounting for 1.9-5% of major salivary gland tumors. We describe the clinico-pathologic features of 18 cases of mesenchymal neoplasms of the major salivary glands experienced at Asan Medical Center, Seoul, Korea, from 1998 to 2004.

The plantar fascia is a long band of connective tissue that runs from the heel to the toes on the bottom of the foot. Plantar fibromas are firm masses that grow slowly along the plantar fascia. Immunohistochemistry is a technique for localizing and visualizing an antigen in a tissue section by using an antibody specific for the target antigen. The immunohistochemistry procedure consists of tissue preparation, antibody incubation, and a series of detection reactions. Technically, when the procedure is performed on cells (cell smears.
