Primary Pulmonary Fibrosarcoma With Bone Metastasis: a Successful Treatment With Post-Operation Adjuvant Chemotherapy.

Hiradfar A, Pourlak T, Badebarin D - Iran J Cancer Prev (2015)

Bottom Line: Post-operative chemotherapy has shown the benefit in the cases of residual disease after initial surgery and metastatic disease in the literature.We have presented the case of a 70-days old male child with primary infantile fibrosarcoma of the left lung and distant metastasis of skull.The aim of this publication was to highlight the role of adjuvant chemotherapy to improve outcome of infantile fibrosarcoma with residual tumor and / or metastatic disease.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Pulmonary fibrosarcoma has been an extremely rare tumor in children. Wide surgical resection of infantile fibrosarcoma would be the treatment of choice.

Case presentation: Post-operative chemotherapy has shown the benefit in the cases of residual disease after initial surgery and metastatic disease in the literature. We have presented the case of a 70-days old male child with primary infantile fibrosarcoma of the left lung and distant metastasis of skull.

Conclusions: The aim of this publication was to highlight the role of adjuvant chemotherapy to improve outcome of infantile fibrosarcoma with residual tumor and / or metastatic disease.

A2328FIG3: Skull bone metastasis

Mentions: Metastatic workups including radionuclide bone scan and skull CT examinations have taken after initial surgery. Increased skeletal has up taken of the skull bones have detected by (Tc)-99m-labeled methylene diphosphonate (MDP) (Figure 3A). Skull CT examinations have revealed bone lesions without brain parenchymal disease (Figure 3B). There was a residual tumor measuring 5 × 7 mm dimensions on subsequent chest CT scan after surgery.
