In this study, we investigated HMB-45 expression in epithelioid uterine leiomyosarcomas with clear cell areas. From 12 epithelioid leiomyosarcomas, we selected 5 that had: 1) clear cell areas and 2) spindle cell areas that were at least focally positive for desmin and caldesmon. The patients' ages ranged from 47 to 82 years (mean 64 years). Presenting symptoms were uterine bleeding (three), abdominal pain (one), and a pelvic mass (one). There was no history of tuberous sclerosis or… CONTINUE READING
