In immunohistochemical staining, the spindle cells were positive for actin, desmin and anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) and negative for S-100 and CK (Fig.
Immunohistochemical stains, in these tumors, showed positivity for S100 protein, HMB-45, and Melan-A, whereas antibodies against other antigens such as cytokeratins, CD45, desmin, estrogen receptor, and progesterone receptor, were nonreactive.
13] Other immunohistochemistries involving cytokeratin, SMA, S-100 protein, desmin, CD117 and epithelial membrane antigen are negative, but useful for differential diagnosis of SFT.
Using the frequently cited cutoff of 10% cell staining as a positive result, desmin provided no predictive value at all; for cases with positive staining, half of the patients were alive at 5 years and half had died.
2, CD15, CD30, CD117, desmin, and S100 protein, confirming the findings of pleiomorphic high grade undifferentiated sarcoma observed on biopsy.
We found that some markers, such as cytokeratins (CKs) and CD31, are mainly expressed in the epithelioid subtype, while the spindle cell histology is principally characterized by a greater expression of vimentin and by a negative expression of desmin and cytokeratins.
13,14) Specific IHC stains, especially desmin, have helped to improve the accuracy of diagnosis and differentiate LMS from other mesodermal tumors, such as fibromas, fibrosarcomas, spindle-cell sarcomas, rhabdomyosarcoma, malignant melanomas, and inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors.
The Hasteh group (13) found desmin positivity (defined as 25% reactivity) in the benign mesothelial cells, associated with 84% sensitivity and 94% specificity, in the distinction between benign and malignant mesothelium.
There was no reactivity to keratins AEI/AE3, S-100 protein, smooth-muscle antibody, actin, and desmin.
Both cell types were dyed negative in epithelial membrane antigen, pancytokeratin, actin and desmin.
Most cases showed at least partial SMA and desmin staining (up to 75% of tumor cells) and focal CD10 staining (<25% of tumor cells).
Immunoreactivity evaluations revealed a diffuse stain for vimentin (figure 2, B) and weakly positive stains for CD34, CD99, Bcl-2, and smooth-muscle actin; stains for epithelial markers, melanoma markers, S-100 protein, and desmin were negative.
