Paraspinal malignant ossifying fibromyxoid tumor with spinal involvement.

Summary of "Paraspinal malignant ossifying fibromyxoid tumor with spinal involvement."

Ossifying fibromyxoid tumors (OFT), first described in 1989 by Enzinger et al., are rare lesions; malignant OFT (MOFT) are even rarer. We report a large recurrent paraspinal MOFT invading the spine and causing epidural compression in a 70-year-old male, despite prior debulking and radiotherapy. Paraspinal involvement of these tumors has been reported only twice before. We describe its imaging, pathology, and also review the pertinent literature.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A malignant tumor composed of more than one type of neoplastic tissue. (Dorland, 27th ed)

A benign central bone tumor, usually of the jaws (especially the mandible), composed of fibrous connective tissue within which bone is formed.

A unifocal malignant tumor that consists of atypical pathological MAST CELLS without systemic involvement. It causes local destructive growth in organs other than in skin or bone marrow.

A malignant cystic or semisolid tumor most often occurring in the ovary. Rarely, one is solid. This tumor may develop from a mucinous cystadenoma, or it may be malignant at the onset. The cysts are lined with tall columnar epithelial cells; in others, the epithelium consists of many layers of cells that have lost normal structure entirely. In the more undifferentiated tumors, one may see sheets and nests of tumor cells that have very little resemblance to the parent structure. (Hughes, Obstetric-Gynecologic Terminology, 1972, p184)

Tuberculosis of the brain, spinal cord, or meninges (TUBERCULOSIS, MENINGEAL), most often caused by MYCOBACTERIUM TUBERCULOSIS and rarely by MYCOBACTERIUM BOVIS. The infection may be limited to the nervous system or coexist in other organs (e.g., TUBERCULOSIS, PULMONARY). The organism tends to seed the meninges causing a diffuse meningitis and leads to the formation of TUBERCULOMA, which may occur within the brain, spinal cord, or perimeningeal spaces. Tuberculous involvement of the vertebral column (TUBERCULOSIS, SPINAL) may result in nerve root or spinal cord compression. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp717-20)
