Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is a neoplasm of intermediate biologic potential. In this study, we report a subset of IMTs with histologic atypia and/or clinical aggressiveness that were analyzed for clinicopathologic features, outcome, and immunohistochemical expression of anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) and other markers to identify potential(More)
Inflammatory pseudotumour is a generic term applied to a variety of neoplastic and non-neoplastic entities that share a common histological appearance, namely a cytologically bland spindle cell proliferation with a prominent, usually chronic inflammatory infiltrate. Over the last two decades, inflammatory myofibroblastic tumour (IMT) has emerged from within(More)
PEComas (tumours showing perivascular epithelioid cell differentiation) are a family of related mesenchymal neoplasms that include angiomyolipoma, lymphangiomyomatosis, clear cell "sugar" tumour of the lung, and a group of rare, morphologically and immunophenotypically similar lesions arising at a variety of visceral and soft tissue sites. These tumours all(More)
PURPOSE Approximately 5% of lung adenocarcinomas harbor an EML4-ALK gene fusion and define a unique tumor group that may be responsive to targeted therapy. However ALK-rearranged lung adenocarcinomas are difficult to detect by either standard fluorescence in situ hybridization or immunohistochemistry (IHC) assays. In the present study, we used novel(More)
A 1992 report described 5 keratin-positive spindle cell neoplasms with multifocal presentation in a single limb, which were proposed at that time to be a variant of epithelioid sarcoma. This tumor type is not widely recognized and is incompletely characterized. We examined 50 cases of this distinctive tumor to evaluate histologic, immunophenotypic, and(More)
PURPOSE The distribution and significance of caveolin 1 (CAV1) expression in different breast cell types and role in breast carcinogenesis remain poorly understood. Both tumor-suppressive and oncogenic roles have been proposed for this protein. The aims of this study were to characterize the distribution of CAV1 in normal breast, benign breast lesions,(More)
Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are the most common mesenchymal tumors in the gastrointestinal tract. Approximately 85% of GISTs harbor activating mutations in the KIT or platelet-derived growth factor receptor alpha (PDGFRA) gene and approximately 95% of GISTs are positive for KIT (CD117) by immunohistochemistry. Nevertheless, approximately 5% of(More)
Myoepitheliomas and mixed tumors were only recently recognized to occur primarily in soft tissue, and only small case numbers have been described. To characterize these tumors further and to evaluate prognostic parameters, 101 myoepithelial tumors of soft tissue were retrieved from the authors' consult files. Hematoxylin and eosin sections were reexamined,(More)
The diagnosis of gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) is currently based on morphologic features and immunohistochemical demonstration of KIT (CD117). However, some tumors (in our estimation approximately 4%) have clinicopathologic features of GIST but do not express KIT. To determine if these lesions are truly GISTs, we evaluated 25 tumors with clinical(More)
Perineuriomas are uncommon benign peripheral nerve sheath tumors that include soft tissue, sclerosing, and intraneural variants. Fewer than 50 soft tissue perineuriomas have been reported to date, and the clinical significance of atypical histologic features is unknown. To characterize these tumors further, 81 soft tissue perineuriomas received between 1994(More)
