Anaplastic cellular features may be seen in approximately 13% of all subtypes of rhabdomyosarcoma. Analysis of prognostic factors in patients with nonmetastatic rhabdomyosarcoma treated on Intergroup Rhabdomyosarcoma Studies III and IV: The Children’s Oncology Group. Unlike embryonal rhabdomyosarcomas, which … 1b). 1a). BACKGROUND: Distinguishing alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma (ARMS) from embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma (ERMS) has historically been of prognostic and therapeutic importance. The anatomical localization of the tumor may vary, but commonly involve the head/neck regions, male and female urogenital tract or the trunk and extremities. Alveolar. 2009;76(2):224–8. Google Scholar. While the morphology of tumor cells are similar (small, round cells), the pattern of infiltration or the accompanying component of the tumor (neoplastic osteoid or hyaline cartilage in small cell variant of OS and mesenchymal chondrosarcoma, respectively) as well as special cytomorphological features such as intracytoplasmic vacuoles or striation of the tumor cells (like in RMS) may sometimes suggest the differentiation lineage. It is a high-grade malignancy that primarily involves the head and neck region, the urogenital tract or may develop in soft tissues of the trunk or extremities.

Cytogenetics and molecular biology Primitive malignant tumor of embryonal skeletal muscle progenitor cells (myoblasts) Diagnostic Criteria. The results of IHC showed diffuse vimentin positivity as well as the cells gave substantial cytoplasmic and nuclear labelling with both rhabdomyogen markers, desmin and Myf-4, respectively (Fig. J Clin Oncol. 2012;118(5):1387–96. Besides this, patients with (soft tissue) ARMS who have regional lymph node involvement face a worse outcome (5-year failure-free survival: 43 %) as compared to patients lacking lymph node involvement (5-year failure-free survival: 73 %) [15]. Article  With this proposal, there might be more available data to predict not only the biological behavior and prognosis of the disease, but also to develop and set up further chemotherapeutical combinations that may increase the overall survival of the patients in the future. Rhabdomyosarcoma is the most common type of … Davis RJ, Barr FG. Massive bone marrow involvement by clear cell variant of rhabdomyosarcoma. 2004;18(21):2614–26.

Anaplasia is defined as neoplastic nuclei at least 3 times the size of their neoplastic neighbors and/or atypical mitotic figures. A 9-year-old male was admitted to the hospital presented with recurrent fever, lower back and right lower limb pain, experienced over the period of a month. Biopsies, proved a massive infiltration of the bone marrow cavity with rhabdomyosarcoma. Concerning the clinical and pathological findings, the final diagnosis of primary alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma of the bone was made. solid alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma (compact alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma) (8172322, 11280599) embryonal-like alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma with PAX3 rearrangement at 2q35 by t(2;20)(q35;p12) multiple morphological alveolar rhabdomyosarcomas . be detached/scattered in the alveolus-like space. Primary alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma of the bone: two cases and review of the literature. The pan-cytokeratin and TFE-3 reactions were negative as well as INI-1 was retrained; by which alveolar soft part sarcoma or rhabdoid tumor as a differential diagnostic possibility could be ruled out. Besides this, however, some areas of the tumor formed solid sheets of tumor islands that were divided by fine fibro-vascular stroma (Fig. 2015;5:24. doi:10.1186/s13569-015-0039-6. Consent was obtained from the next of kin of the patients (parents) for the publication of the cases and any accompanying images. The Third Intergroup Rhabdomyosarcoma Study. Less than 0.5% of all bladder tumors, but one of most common tumors of the lower urogenital tract in children Often children 2-6 years old; 75% male Pediatric rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) 1 traditionally has been classified by histologic appearance into 2 major subtypes, alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma (ARMS) and embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma (ERMS). Twenty-six females and … 1988;42(4):511–20. The anatomical localization of the tumor may vary, but commonly involve the head/neck … Article  The infiltrate displaced the normal hematopoiesis of the bone marrow. From a pediatric oncology point of view, RMS has traditionally been classified into alveolar (ARMS) and embryonal (ERMS) subtypes. a Tumor cells show diffuse vimentin positivity, as well as diffuse and strong cytoplasmic and nuclear labelling could be observed with myogenic markers desmin and Myf-4, respectively (b–c). The cytomorphology was identical with a so called “small round blue cell tumor”. Decades of clinical and basic research have gradually improved our understanding of the pathophysiology of RMS and helped to optimize clinical care. With higher magnification, the monomorphic tumor cells have a characteristic eosinophilic cytoplasm, however tumor cells also show intracytoplasmic vacuolization (arrowheads). Radiological image and hematoxylin-eosin stained specimen of the tumor. PubMed Central  In places, the cells appear loosely dispersed, mimicking a pulmonary alveolar pattern. Primary alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma of the bone as a subtype of ARMS seems to be a distinct clinico-pathological entity. Ognjanovic S, Olivier M, Bergermann TL, Hainaut P. Sarcomas in TP53 germline mutation carriers. Cancer. a Axial T2 SPAIR image of pelvis shows diffuse patchy infiltration (arrowheads) of the bone marrow. Soft tissue sarcomas account for about 7 to 8 percent of childhood cancers. The cells are arranged in variably sized nests separated by fibrous tissue septa. Article  During chemotherapy according to CWS-2012 Protocol’s metastatic arm, dose reduction and modifications of cytostatic drugs, intensive care and hemodialysis were required several times due to serious arrhythmias and renal insufficiency caused by osteolysis-induced hypercalcemia. PubMed  Genes Chromosomes Cancer. The therapeutic response was excellent in relation to the first-line chemotherapy given according to CWS-2009 Protocol’s metastatic arm as control MRI and PET/CT revealed complete remission. The biopsy sample that was taken from the tibia showed different morphological patterns and areas that made the overall histological picture misleading: among the bony trabeculae, a cellular tumor infiltrate could be identified and the cells were arranged in solid sheets replacing the normal hematopoiesis. Diagn Pathol 11, 99 (2016). Alveolar RMS can be characterized by a recurrent cytogenetic alteration involving FOXO-1 and PAX3 or PAX7 genes, and the consecutive translocations (t(2;13) or t(1;13) respectively) lead to the excess synthesis of fusion proteins with oncogenic effects [5, 6]. and 3x larger than … Maurer HM, Gehan EA, Beltangady M, Crist W, Dickman PS, Donaldson SS, Fryer C, Hammond D, Hays DM, Hermann J, et al.

Bars indicate: 50 μm. Radiological image and histopathology of Case 2. a On the axial T2 SPAIR image of the pelvic bone multiple, partially coalesced tumor nodules are visible in the bone marrow. Here, we report two challenging cases involving 17- and 9-years-olds males where diffuse and multiplex bone lesions suggested either a hematological disease or a primary bone tumor (mesenchymal chondrosarcoma). 2015;55(1):3–15. 2d). Although, by examining a HE specimen, a hematological malignancy could be ruled out, further immunohistochemical (IHC) tests were needed to characterize the phenotype of the tumor cells. 1997;94(15):8047–51. Rhabdomyosarcoma may be further classified into botryoid, spindle cell, embryonal, alveolar and undifferentiated types. Microscopically, the four major histopathologic types of rhabdomyosarcoma are embryonal, alveolar, pleomorphic, and botryoid. 2007;48(4):315–20. 1995;13(3):610–30. Int J Surg Pathol. R- banding below, Comparison of wild type While tumor cells did not show striation, the overall morphology suggested rhabdomyoblast-like differentiation (Fig. Mami Murakami. Kuttesch Jr JF, Parham DM, Kaste SC, Rao BN, Douglass EC, Pratt CB. In the fourth month of crizotinib treatment multiplex metastases were confirmed. From a pediatric oncology point of view, RMS has traditionally been classified into alveolar (ARMS) and embryonal (ERMS) subtypes.

CAS  Here we report two further cases of primary ARMS of the bone that posed a diagnostic challenge both from a clinical as well as a pathological point of view. Other foci of the tumor showed intramedullary cartilage islands around which spindle or ovoid shape tumor cells formed a cohesive structure; allowing mesenchymal chondrosarcoma diagnosis. Alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma: morphoproteomics and personalized tumor graft testing further define the biology of PAX3-FKHR(FOXO1) subtype and provide targeted therapeutic options. Primary alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma of the bone as a subtype of ARMS, seems to be a distinct clinico-pathological entity with challenging diagnostic difficulties and different biological behavior when compared to soft tissue ARMS.
