A case of nodular fasciitis is reported that involved the breast parenchyma of a 40-year-old man. The differential diagnosis of nodular fasciitis in the male breast mainly includes fibromatosis and myofibroblastoma. However, other benign and malignant spindle cell lesions of the breast, such as pseudoangiomatous stromal hyperplasia and especially spindle(More)
Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is a rare mesenchymal neoplasm, most commonly arising from the pleura. It has also been recently described to occur in extrapleural sites. To our knowledge, only 16 cases of SFT have been reported in the urinary bladder to date. We report the clinicopathological features of a vesical SFT occurring in a 60-year-old man who(More)
The authors describe a case of lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma (LELC) of the esophagus occurring in a 77-year-old man. To date, 13 cases have been described in the literature, all in natives of Japan. Histological features, immunohistochemical findings and differential diagnosis are discussed. In our case epithelial neoplastic cells were completely(More)
The objectives of this study were to evaluate the frequency of carcinoid tumors of the extrahepatic biliary ducts (EHBDs) and the pathologic progression and the role of surgery in the management of this disease. We describe two cases of malignant carcinoids of the EHBDs, which presented as common bile duct tumors in two adult male patients, aged 52 and 70(More)
The authors describe a case of malignant lymphoepithelial lesion (MLEL), commonly referred to as lymphoepithelial carcinoma of parotid gland, that is a very rare tumour. There is a relatively high incidence in Eskimos of Alaska and Greenland, but some cases are described in natives of south China. The immunophenotypic profile and histopathological aspect of(More)
Pleomorphic hyalinizing angiectatic tumor (PHAT) is considered an unusual mesenchymal tumor of intermediate malignant potential that is distinguished by a prominent angiectatic vasculature with clusters of thin-walled, fibrin-lined vessels surrounded by sheets of spindled and pleomorphic cells. This lesion occurs mostly in the subcutaneous soft tissues of(More)
The Authors describe a rare case of cutaneous angiolipoleiomyoma in an acral location together with a brief literature review. A 62-year-old male presented with a slow-growing asymptomatic nodule, 2.2 cm in diameter, located in the subcutaneous tissue of the left calf. Ten months after surgical excision, the patient is alive and free of disease.(More)
AIMS Eight sarcomatoid carcinomas from various anatomical locations were investigated by immunohistochemical staining to laminin, type IV collagen and heparan sulfate proteoglycan, to study the characteristics of basement membranes at the interface between carcinomatous and sarcomatous tissues. METHODS Paraffin wax embedded tissue sections from(More)
