Leiomyosarcoma of the skin
with osteoclast-like giant cells: a case report
Osteoclast-like giant cells have
been noted in various malignant tumors, such as, carcinomas of pancreas and
liver and leiomyosarcomas of non-cutaneous locations, such as, uterus and
rectum. We were unable to find any reported case of a leiomyosarcoma of the
skin where osteoclast-like giant cells were present in the tumor.
We report a case of a 59-year-old
woman with a cutaneous leiomyosarcoma associated with osteoclast-like giant
cells arising from the subcutaneous artery of the leg. The nature of the giant
cells is discussed in light of the findings from the immunostaining as well as
survey of the literature.
A rare case of cutaneous
leiomyosarcoma with osteoclast-like giant cells is reported. The giant cells in
the tumor appear to be reactive histiocytic cells.
