04/01/1997 - "Yet, these features together with focal whorled nesting of more epithelioid cells (one case) also caused considerable diagnostic problems to exclude other myofibroblastic as well as (malignant) spindle cell lesions such as (palisaded) myofibroblastoma, dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, and neurothekeoma. "
07/01/2014 - "Since CD34+ SFCs are the main reservoir of tissue mesenchymal cells (great mesenchymal potential, probably higher than that proposed for pericytes and other stromal cells), we dedicate a broad section to explain their in vivo behaviour during proliferation and differentiation in different physiologic and pathologic conditions, in addition to their characteristics in the human tissues of origin (adult stem cell niches); G) Involvement in pathological processes, e.g., repair (regeneration and repair through granulation tissue), fibrosis, tumour stroma formation and possible CD34+ SFC-derived tumours (e.g., solitary fibrous tumour, dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, giant cell fibroblastoma, nuchal-type fibroma, mammary and extramammary myofibroblastoma, spindle and pleomorphic cell lipoma, and elastofibroma) and H) Clinical and therapeutic implications. "
10/01/2006 - "Many spindle cell tumors, such as basal cell carcinoma, pleomorphic adenoma, dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, myofibroblastoma, and leiomyoblastoma, in addition to trichoblastoma and sebaceoma, can have a rippled-pattern."
04/01/1998 - "Five cases reported herein of histological confirmed myofibroblastoma obtained from male and female breasts each showed strong nuclear antibody staining for the androgen receptor, not seen in four cases of leiomyosarcoma, three cases of fibromatosis, three cases of dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, and two cases of monophasic synovial sarcoma. "
01/01/2000 - "First identified in a myeloid leukemia cell line, immunohistological reactivity with anti-CD34 antibodies is also encountered in a histologically diverse subset of nonhematolymphoid neoplasms including angiosarcoma, solitary fibrous tumors, epithelioid sarcomas, spindle cell lipomas, dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, and myofibroblastomas.
