Large cervicothoracic myxoinflammatory fibroblastic sarcoma with brachial plexus invasion: A case report and literature review

View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

Myxoinflammatory fibroblastic sarcoma is a rare sarcoma that develops in patients of all ages, which usually presents as a slow-growing painless mass in the distal extremities. To date, myxoinflammatory fibroblastic sarcoma with invasion of the brachial plexus has rarely been reported in the literature. In this study, a case of large cervicothoracic sarcoma, which invaded the brachial plexus, is presented. The patient reported no sensory disturbance or dyskinesia. The tumor was completely resected without injury of the brachial plexus. The postoperative histological diagnosis was myxoinflammatory fibroblastic sarcoma. Follow-up examination performed 24 months after surgery revealed no tumor recurrence and no sensory disturbance or dyskinesia was reported. This study presents a rare case of large myxoinflammatory fibroblastic sarcoma with brachial plexus invasion that was successfully managed by surgery.

Mentions: B-ultrasound examination revealed a low echo-level mass located between the right neck and shoulder, extending from the right anterior chest wall to the right anterior axillary region. A chest radiograph identified a dense shadow at the right clavicular region. MRI revealed a large occupying lesion at the supraclavicular and infraclavicular region (Fig. 1). A pre-operative pathological examination performed at Shanghai Changhai Hospital in November 2012 indicated the diagnosis of a benign mesenchymal tumor.
