Disease relevance of Histiocytoma, Benign Fibrous


High impact information on Histiocytoma, Benign Fibrous

  • High expression of PDGF beta-receptor mRNA and protein was found in the malignant tumors, and also in some benign lesions, such as dermatofibroma [6].
  • As expected, CD1a showed high specificity for LCH, while CD34 was predominantly expressed by fibroblast-related lesions; in cellular dermatofibromas, CD34 and MS-1 expression partially overlapped [7].
  • Fusion of the EWSR1 and ATF1 genes without expression of the MITF-M transcript in angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma [8].
  • Sclerosing hemangioma cells also produce a material that cross-reacts with antisera directed against PTH and tumor tissue sections immunostain with PTH antibodies [9].
  • Expression of K6 and K16 in skin samples from patients with dermatofibromas seemed to be dependent upon how near was the tumor to the overlying epidermis, and possibly upon the degree of cellularity within the tumor mass [10].
