    Clinical Presentation

    16-year old adolescent male presents with diffuse abdominal pain and distension. Laparotomy evaluation discloses a large gray mass attached to the peritoneum. The mass measures 19 cm and is surrounded by multiple nodules, also attached to the peritoneum, ranging in diameter from 1 to 4.5 cm.

    Microscopic examination of the large mass shows clusters of small round blue cells with an increased mitotic activity surrounded by a prominent desmoplastic stroma (pictures 1 and 2).

    Soft Tissue Sarcomas - Case 2

    Clinical Presentation

    A 45-year-old man presented with 6-month history of a deep seated and painless soft-tissue mass.

The mass was completely excised and on the macroscopic examination, it was white, fleshy, well-circumscribed and measured approximately 10 cm in greatest dimension. The microscopic exam disclosed a fascicular proliferation of spindle-shaped cells with mild to moderate mitotic activity and few areas of necrosis (figures 1-4).
