  1. Microscopic Features of Histiocytic Sarcoma: The growth pattern is diffuse with partial or total effacement of the native architecture by a proliferation of high-grade malignant cells resembling histiocytes. In partially involved lymph nodes, the tumor distribution is paracortical
  2. The pathology of histiocytic disorders and neoplasms of the macrophage-dendritic cell lineages is heterogeneous and may have overlapping features, all the while made more difficult by their rarity. The morphologic features together with immunophenotype and pattern of involvement should be taken together with the clinical and radiographic findings to make a unifying diagnosis

Extranodal histiocytic sarcoma: clinicopathologic analysis

PMCID: PMC3444748. DOI: 10.1097/PAS.0b013e31825fa931. Abstract. Endometrial stromal sarcoma (ESS) characterized by YWHAE-FAM22 genetic fusion is histologically higher grade and clinically more aggressive than ESS with JAZF1-SUZ12 or equivalent genetic rearrangements, hence it is clinically important to recognize this subset of ESS Histiocytic sarcoma (HS) is an extremely rare non-Langerhans histiocyte disorder of unknown cause that most commonly presents with symptoms due to unifocal or multifocal extranodal tumors. HS may occur as a sporadic illness or may be clonally related to a separate synchronous or metachronous hematologic malignancy, such as follicular lymphoma. Comments: Microscopic Features of Histiocytic Sarcoma: The growth pattern is diffuse with partial or total effacement of the native architecture by a proliferation of high-grade malignant cells resembling histiocytes.In partially involved lymph nodes, the tumor distribution is paracortical. Sinuses may be involved, but there is no preferential involvement of sinuses Histiocytic Sarcoma · Definition o Malignant proliferation of cells showing morphologic and immunophenotypic features similar to those of mature tissue histiocytes o Expression of one or more histiocytic markers (without dendritic cell markers) o Exclusion of extramyeloid manifestations of acute monocytic leukemi

Malignant Fibrous Histiocytoma (MFH; Undifferentiated Pleomorphic Sarcoma UPS) GENERAL INFORMATION Malignant Fibrous Histiocytoma was first described in the 1960s presumably derived from a mixed histiocytic and fibroblastic cellular origin but is it now believed that it is a lesion derived from fibroblast differentiation Normal bone marrow.

Many cases described in the past would now be classified as diffuse large B-cell lymphoma or anaplastic large cell lymphoma 1. Nihon Rinsho. 1989 Mar;47(3):583-7. [Outline of proliferative disorders in the mononuclear phagocytic system--clinicopathologic findings on malignant histiocytosis] Histiocytic sarcoma (HS) is a rare but controversial hematopoietic neoplasm. In the past, malignancies have been misclassified as histiocytic tumors due to overlapping histologic features and.

Histiocytic sarcoma (HS) is an extremely rare malignant neoplasm showing morphologic and immunophenotypic evidence of histiocytic differentiation. The vast majority of previously reported HSs are now generally recognized to be misdiagnosed examples of non-Hodgkin lymphomas, predominantly diffuse large B-cell lymphoma or anaplastic large cell.

Malignant histiocytosis is a rare hereditary disease found in the Bernese Mountain Dog and humans, characterized by histiocytic infiltration of the lungs and lymph nodes.The liver, spleen, and central nervous system can also be affected.

Histiocytic sarcoma is derived from histiocytes and is among the rarest of the tumors affecting the lymphoid tissue. We report a case of a histiocytic sarcoma arising from the lymph node in a 35-year-old male who came for a fine needle aspiration cytology and a subsequent biopsy was conducted and the tissue subjected to hematoxylin and eosin and immunohistochemistry staining Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is an abnormal clonal proliferation of Langerhans cells, abnormal cells deriving from bone marrow and capable of migrating from skin to lymph nodes.. Symptoms range from isolated bone lesions to multisystem disease. LCH is part of a group of syndromes called histiocytoses, which are characterized by an abnormal proliferation of histiocytes (an archaic term.
