Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A sarcoma, usually a liposarcoma or malignant fibrous histiocytoma, with an abundant component of myxoid tissue resembling primitive mesenchyme containing connective tissue mucin. (Stedman, 25th ed)
The measurement of subcutaneous fat located directly beneath the skin by grasping a fold of skin and subcutaneous fat between the thumb and forefinger and pulling it away from the underlying muscle tissue. The thickness of the double layer of skin and subcutaneous tissue is then read with a caliper. The five most frequently measured sites are the upper arm, below the scapula, above the hip bone, the abdomen, and the thigh. Its application is the determination of relative fatness, of changes in physical conditioning programs, and of the percentage of body fat in desirable body weight. (From McArdle, et al., Exercise Physiology, 2d ed, p496-8)
A malignant tumor derived from primitive or embryonal lipoblastic cells. It may be composed of well-differentiated fat cells or may be dedifferentiated: myxoid (LIPOSARCOMA, MYXOID), round-celled, or pleomorphic, usually in association with a rich network of capillaries. Recurrences are common and dedifferentiated liposarcomas metastasize to the lungs or serosal surfaces. (From Dorland, 27th ed; Stedman, 25th ed)
A liposarcoma containing myxomatous tissue. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Skull Fracture, Basilar
Fractures which extend through the base of the SKULL, usually involving the PETROUS BONE. Battle's sign (characterized by skin discoloration due to extravasation of blood into the subcutaneous tissue behind the ear and over the mastoid process), CRANIAL NEUROPATHIES, TRAUMATIC; CAROTID-CAVERNOUS SINUS FISTULA; and CEREBROSPINAL FLUID OTORRHEA are relatively frequent sequelae of this condition. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p876)
Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is a low-grade, mesenchymal, spindle cell tumor. In addition to the classical form characterized by a storiform pattern of tumor cells, pigmented (Bednar's tumor...
No feasible method currently exists to evaluate systemic metastasis in patients with myxoid liposarcoma. The purpose of this study was to determine the feasibility of performing whole-body magnetic re...
Primitive myxoid mesenchymal tumor of infancy is a recently recognized entity that has been added to the differential diagnosis of myxoid tumors of the soft tissue. Few cases have been reported of...
ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Myxoid liposarcoma is a relatively common malignant soft tissue tumor, characterized by a (12;16) translocation resulting in a FUS-DDIT3 fusion gene playing a pivotal role in its...
Primitive myxoid mesenchymal tumor of infancy is an extremely rare and recently recognized soft tissue tumor entity with a tendency for multiple recurrences. Only ten cases have been described in the...
This is a Phase II, multicenter, open-label clinical trial designed to determine the efficacy and safety of Brostallicin when administered once every 3 weeks in patients with myxoid liposa...
Retrospective review of clinical outcome of pediatric Dermatofibrosarcoma Protuberans (PDFSP) after active invitation
The purpose of this study is to determine the effects that trabectedin has on Myxoid / round cell liposarcoma (MRCL) when it is given before the tumor is removed by surgery.
This research study is for patients who have been diagnosed with a rare type of tissue tumor (DFSP). Surgery has been recommended to treat this cancer. Surgery cures most patients of...
The primary objective of this study is to determine the efficacy of phosphatidylcholine and deoxycholate subcutaneous injections for localized fat removal. Subcutaneous injections of the...
