Summary of "Ewing-like sarcoma/undifferentiated round cell sarcoma in an infant with APC and MSH6 variation: A case report."

Ewing-like sarcoma (ELS)/undifferentiated round cell sarcoma (URCS) is a rare type of soft tissue sarcomas (STS), especially in infants, with poor prognosis. It is a so-called "small round cell" sarcoma, and has many features of Ewing sarcoma, but lacks rearrangements in EWSR1. The diagnosis and treatment of this kind of STS remains challenging. BCOR genetic abnormalities have been found in some Ewing-like sarcomas.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A ubiquitous hnRNP protein found in the CELL NUCLEUS and the CYTOPLASM. Translocations that result in the formation of fusion proteins containing parts of RNA-binding protein EWS may play a role in neoplastic processes such as Ewing Sarcoma (SARCOMA, EWING'S).

A group of highly cellular primitive round cell neoplasms which occur extracranially in soft tissue and bone and are derived from embryonal neural crest cells. These tumors occur primarily in children and adolescents and share a number of characteristics with Ewing's Sarcoma (SARCOMA, EWING'S). They may arise from the chest wall, skin, orbit, kidney, and other structures and tend to be locally invasive or metastasize, although relatively benign forms may occur. Characteristic histologic features include a tendency to form Homer-Wright rosettes and to stain positively with neuron-specific enolase and vimentin. (From DeVita et al., Cancer: Principles and Practice of Oncology, 5th ed, p2113; J Clin Oncol 1998 Mar;16(3):1150-7)

A trans-activator and member of the erythroblast transformation-specific family of transcriptions factors that contain a characteristic ETS MOTIF. It is required for PLATELET CELL ADHESION to the subendothelium and associates with CHIMERIC ONCOGENE PROTEINS in PROSTATE CANCER; EWING'S SARCOMA; and ACUTE MYELOID LEUKEMIA.
