Sclerosing epithelioid fibrosarcoma, or SEF, is a type of rare cancer that grows in the soft tissues and bones throughout the body. It usually grows in the arms, legs, head and neck, but can be found anywhere in the body. Soft tissues include the muscle, fat, tendons, ligaments, lymph and blood vessels, nerves, or other tissue that connects and. The tumor is a polymorphic fibro-osseous tumor of bone, also called a liposclerosing myxofibrous tumor of bone. On pathology, the lesion is composed of crudely woven bone that may have a pagetoid appearance. surrounded by fibrous tissue. Fat and myxoid change may also be present. The lesion may mimic fibrous dysplasia Sclerotic or blastic bone metastases can arise from a number of different primary malignancies including 1-4: prostate carcinoma (most common) breast carcinoma (may be mixed) transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) carcinoid. medulloblastoma. neuroblastoma Sclerosing odontogenic carcinoma (SOC) is a primary intraosseous carcinoma of the jaws that has been listed as a separate entity for the first time in the latest version of the World Health Organization classification of Head and Neck Tumours (2017)
A sclerotic lesion is an unusual hardening or thickening of your bone. They can affect any bone and be either benign (harmless) or malignant (cancerous). In general, they're slow-growing. Both.. Mineralization in osteoid tumors can be described as a trabecular ossification pattern in benign bone-forming lesions and as a cloud-like or ill-defined amorphous pattern in osteosarcomas. Sclerosis can also be reactive, e.g. in Ewing's sarcoma or lymphoma
Radiography: The overall radiographic appearance of conventional osteosarcoma is a mixed lytic/sclerotic lesion with cortical destruction and tumor expansion into soft tissue. Sometimes a so-called Codman's triangle is observed when the tumor raises the periosteum away from the bone The WHO classification of odontogenic and maxillofacial bone tumors, last published in 2017, is a subset of the WHO classification of head and neck tumors (4 th edition), which lays out a histological classification system for neoplasms and other tumors related to the odontogenic apparatus. Classification Malignant odontogenic tumors The chondrogenic tumours of bone are now classified into benign, intermediate (locally aggressive), intermediate (rarely metastasizing) and malignant grades. The osteochondromyxoma, subungual exostosis, bizarre parosteal osteochondromatous proliferation and synovial chondromatosis were added to the benign chondrogenic tumours of bone Bone reacts to its environment in two ways — either by removing some of itself or by creating more of itself. If the disorder it is reacting to is rapidly progressive, there may only be time for retreat (defense). If the process is slower growing, then the bone may have time to mount an offense and try to form a sclerotic area around the.
. These tumors are considered locally aggressive. They continue to enlarge and destroy bone and may eventually erode the rest of the bone and extend into the soft tissues. They may cause pain Periosteal osteosarcoma, or PO, is a rare type of bone cancer. It usually forms on the surface of bones of the legs called the tibia and femur. It also can form on the surface of bones in the arms called the ulna and the humerus. How common is PO? PO is most common in young people between the ages of 15 and 30 years old
(d) MRI scan showing high uptake of Gadolinium predominantly at the tumor's periphery. A thin layer of sclerotic bone separates the tumor from circumjacent marrow edema. (e and f) Intraoperative images during tumor resection and implantation of the endoprosthesis. Resection of the tumor was performed in no-touch technique The conclusion of biopsy for both the tumor of thoracic wall and the lung nodules was sclerosing xanthofibroma which is considered by most people to be a tumor with different clinical and radiological features. Lesions were characterized by a network of anastomosing bone trabeculae without osteoblast lining within a fibrous stroma (Figure 2)
Osteopoikilosis, osteopathia striata, and melorheostosis are sclerosing bone dysplasias, which are benign conditions resulting in areas of bone formation. This dysplasia occurs either within the medullary cavity, as with osteopoikilosis and osteopathia striata, or along the cortex and adjacent soft tissues, as with melorheostosis Koutlas et al. named sclerosing odontogenic carcinoma (SOC) as a primary intraosseous carcinoma of the jaw with histologic features which have not been reported previously . It is an extremely rare tumor with only 9 reports since the initial report by Koutlas et al Sclerosing lesions that will be discussed include spindle cell and sclerosing rhabdomyosarcoma, sclerosing epithelioid fibrosarcoma, and sclerosing paraganglioma. Finally, myofibroblastic lesions that will be reviewed are nodular fasciitis, IgG4-related disease, and solitary fibrous tumor Mandible & maxilla - sclerosing odontogenic carcinoma. Currently unclear Potential sources of origin include odontogenic epithelial rests (dental lamina Rests of Serres, Hertwig epithelial root sheath, rests of Malassez) and malignant transformation of odontogenic cyst epithelial lining (Am J Surg Pathol 2008;32:1613, Oral Surg Oral Med Oral Pathol Oral Radiol 2016;122:e204
This tumor is characterized by epithelioid cells arranged in nest and strands in highly sclerosing matrix. SEF is a relatively low-grade fibrosarcoma histologically [ 2 ]. On the other hand, high rate of recurrence and metastasis has been reported Sclerosing hepatic carcinoma is characterized by intense fibrosis in which the tubular neoplastic structures are embedded. Although the tumor in each patient superficially resembled peripheral cholangiocarcinoma, on close inspection 63% were found to be of apparent hepatocyte origin, 20% were apparently ductal, and 13% were mixed or not distinguishable Primary bone tumors encompass a variety of benign and malignant neoplasms. With the exception of osteomas and intraosseous hemangiomas in the benign category and metastases and multiple myeloma on the malignant side, other tumors are quite rare in the skull base. In these circumstances the main differential diagnosis is with sclerosing.
Sclerosing bone dysplasias are skeletal abnormalities of varying severity with a wide range of radiologic, clinical, and genetic features. Hereditary sclerosing bone dysplasias result from some disturbance in the pathways involved in osteoblast or osteoclast regulation, leading to abnormal accumulation of bone Sclerosing epithelioid fibrosarcoma (SEF) is a rare soft tissue sarcoma mostly occurring in extraosseous sites. SEF represents a clinically challenging entity especially because no standardized treatment regimens are available. Intraosseous localization is an additional challenge with respect to the therapeutical approach. We report on a 16-year-old patient with SEF of the right proximal tibia Primary sclerosing epithelioid fibrosarcoma (SEF) of bone is a rare and scarcely reported neoplasm. We document clinicopathological and molecular features of 9 additional cases. Five males and 4 females had a mean age of 39 years (14-71 years). Most tumors affected flat/irregular bones; only 3 cases involved a long bone. By radiology, it has characteristic radiographic features of a. Liposclerosing myxofibrous tumor typically presents in the fourth decade of life, with an equal sex distribution. 2,3,7 The reported age range is broad, ranging from 15 to 80 years. 3,5 Lesions are typically found incidentally on radiographic imaging, but patients can present with bone pain or pathologic fracture. 2,3 The tumor shows a strong predilection for the proximal femur, with 80% to 90.
Background: Sclerosing epithelioid fibrosarcoma (SEF) is an extremely rare, aggressive malignant subtype of fibrosarcoma. Only dozens of cases of primary SEF in the bone have been reported so far, without case involving fibula reported in literature to date. Herein we report the first case of primary SEF in the right fibula in a 19-year-old man Sclerosing epithelioid fibrosarcoma behaves more aggressively than the related low grade fibromyxoid sarcoma with a shorter survival, higher metastatic rate and greater propensity to involve deep soft tissue and bone. Recurrences and metastases, mainly to lung and bone, are common, occurring in about 50% of cases

The latest edition of the WHO Classification of Tumours of Soft Tissue and Bone is a comprehensive, yet concise reference book. It brings with it some fundamental as well as minor changes to the previous edition. This book is a product of collaboration of 159 authors from 24 different countries throughout the world The stem of the tumor was attached to the alveolar bone, but it was mainly outside the bone. Histopathological examination of the surgical specimen showed a capsule under the epithelium and no cellular atypia with bland cytoplasmic cuboidal or polygonal epithelial cells forming a small circle or polygon in the sclerosing stroma . There has been no report to describe the comparison of histological features of SEF between primary and metastatic lesions in spite of high local recurrence rate. We report the histological changes and increasing Ki-67 labeling index of the primary and metastatic lesions of SEF. The patient was a 31-year-old.

Introduction • Primary bone tumors are rare; • Non-neoplastic conditions, metastatic disease, and lymphohematologic malignancies, which may simulate primary bone tumors, by far outnumber genuine bone tumors. 4 Tumor location included the infra-temporal fossa, buccal mucosa (recurrence extending into bone), anterior mandible (intraosseous primary, focally extending into soft tissue), and left parotid and submandibular gland (with metaplastic bone) regions. Tumor sizes ranged from 1.0 to 5.7 cm, median 3.5 cm. Histologically, the tumors were well. Sclerosing extramedullary hematopoietic tumor should be considered in the differential diagnosis when percutaneous renal biopsy or other intra-abdominal biopsy reveals a sclerotic lesion with. Introduction: Sclerosing Extramedullary Hematopoietic Tumor (SEHT) is a very rare lesion associated with chronic myeloproliferative disorders (CMPD). SEHT can mimic morphologically, both macroscopically and microscopically, a wide variety of tumors/lesions. Case presentation: We present the case of a female patient diagnosed with gallstones for which surgery was decided
Osteosclerosis is a disorder that is characterized by abnormal hardening of bone and an elevation in bone density. It may predominantly affect the medullary portion and/or cortex of bone. Plain radiographs are a valuable tool for detecting and classifying osteosclerotic disorders. It can manifest in localized or generalized osteosclerosis. Localized osteosclerosis can be caused by Legg. The growth direction of the tumor opposed the adjacent joints in tubular bone and protruded into the spinal canal as a lobulated mass in tabular bone (left lamina of vertebra at L3). Chondroblastoma (n=2) located at the proximal epiphysis of the tibia, presenting as a clear and sclerosing bordered oval and expanding lesion with bony destruction Sclerosing extramedullary hematopoietic tumor (SEMHT) is a rare tumor that occurs in patients with chronic myeloprolifer- followed by production of bone marrow cells in other organs an Benign giant cell tumors of bone appear as expansile lytic lesions on imaging. On imaging studies, there is a margin without a sclerotic rim where the tumor ends and normal trabecular bone begins. Biopsy is necessary. Because a giant cell tumor of bone may metastasize to the lung, a chest CT is done as part of initial staging Sclerosing epithelioid fibrosarcoma (SEF) is a rare, aggressive malignant neoplasm characterized by small nests and linear arrays of epithelioid cells embedded in a dense collagenous matrix. Very few primary SEFs of bone have been reported
Sclerosing Pneumocytoma (Hemangioma) Sclerosing hemangiomas are usually solitary, sharply circumbscribed lesions, that typically arise in the periphery of the lung. Those that arise in the peripery are found incidentally, while those that occur centrally can present with hemoptysis or shortness of breath. Their cut surface can be a homogenous. Sclerosing Epithelioid Fibrosarcoma (SEF) is a rare and malignant tumor of the soft tissues. It is typically seen in middle-aged and older adults and has a high potential for metastasis. The tumor occurs deep in the body tissues and can invade muscles and bones. The common sites of the tumor includes the legs, trunk, and arms Periosteal osteosarcoma, or PO, is a rare type of bone cancer. It usually forms on the surface of bones of the legs called the tibia and femur. It also can form on the surface of bones in the arms called the ulna and the humerus. PO is most common in young people between the ages of 15 and 30 years.

The current 2013 World Health Organization (WHO) Classification of Tumors of Soft Tissue and Bone 1 was published 11 years after the prior volume. 2 During that period, many changes have taken place in soft tissue and bone tumor classification, predominantly based on the identification of new genetic findings in different tumor types. In addition, several new morphologically.
Sclerosing stromal tumors are rare, benign, sex-cord stromal tumors that occur predominantly in young women in their second and third decade of life. On MRI, these tumors consist of hyperintense cystic components and heterogeneous solid components with intermediate to high signal intensity on T2-weighted images. Dilated vessels may be observed around the tumor, suggesting tumor . It can occur as primary bone lesion (70% of the cases), or secondary (30% of the cases) to other bone conditions (giant cell tumors, chondroblastoma, osteoblastoma, telangiectatic osteosarcoma) .

Chronic sclerosing sialadenitis is a chronic (long-lasting) inflammatory condition affecting the salivary gland.Relatively rare in occurrence, this condition is benign, but presents as hard, indurated and enlarged masses that are clinically indistinguishable from salivary gland neoplasms or tumors Aneurysmal bone cysts account for about 5% of benign bone tumors, and those occurring in the hand account for approximately 3-5% of all aneurysmal bone tumors. The peak incidence of hand cases occurs in the second decade. These lesions present with pain and rapid growth, especially during pregnancy. They mostly occur in the metacarpal bones. Introduction. Primary tumors of bone comprise a heterogeneous group of benign and malignant tumors that affect patients of a wide age range. While benign bone tumors are relatively common, malignant bone tumors are exceedingly rare, accounting for less than 1%-2% of all neoplastic disease [1-3].While some of the more common bone lesions, such as osteochondroma, pose little problem for. MUC4 reactivity (strong, diffuse) appears to be sensitive and specific for low grade fibromyxoid sarcoma (100%) and the related sclerosing epithelioid fibrosarcoma (78%) with reactivity in mesenchymal lesions seen othewise only in synovial sarcomas (weak focal reactions may be seen in other lesions) (Doyle 2011, 2012 lntracortical Osteosarcoma Rarest form of osteosarcoma Histo: sclerosing variant of osteosarcoma which may contain small foci of chondro-or fibrosarcoma Location: femur, tibia tumor <4 em in diameter intracortical geographic bone lysis tumor margin may be well defined with thickening of surrounding cortex metastases in 29
