1/30. Endometrial stromal sarcoma of the vagina.

    Endometrial stromal sarcoma is a rare tumor and has unique histopathologic features. Most tumors of this kind occur in the uterus; thus, the vagina is an extremely rare site. A 34-year-old woman presented with endometrial stromal sarcoma arising in the vagina. No correlative endometriosis was found. Because of the uncommon location, this tumor was differentiated from other more common neoplasms of the vagina, particularly embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma and other smooth muscle tumors. Although the pathogenesis of endometrial stromal tumors remains controversial, the most common theory of its origin is heterotopic Mullerian tissue such as endometriosis tissue. Primitive cells of the pelvis and retroperitoneum are an alternative possible origin for the tumor if endometriosis is not present. According to the literature, the tumor has a fairly good prognosis compared with other vaginal sarcomas. Surgery combined with adjuvant radiotherapy appears to be an adequate treatment.

2/30. Isochromosome (17)(q10) as the sole structural chromosomal rearrangement in a case of botryoid rhabdomyosarcoma.

    We describe a case of botryoid rhabdomyosarcoma with the karyotype 53,XX, 2, 5, 8, 12, 13, i(17)(q10), 19, 20. Only two cytogenetically analyzed cases of this tumor were previously reported and structural chromosomal abnormalities in each tumor were different.

3/30. Combined therapy to prevent complete pelvic exenteration for rhabdomyosarcoma of the vagina or uterus.

    Three children with rhabdomyosarcoma (sarcoma botryoides) of the vagina or uterus were managed by modified radical resection combined with pre- and/or postoperative chemotherapy and high-dose irradiation. This plan of therapy contrasts sharply with the conventional approach: i.e., pelvic exenteration consisting of cystectomy, hystovaginectomy, and oophorectomy, with urinary diversion by ureteroileostomy or ureterosigmoidostomy. Two patients had complete regressions of tumor following preoperative chemotherapy and irradiation. The third patient received no preoperative therapy, but was given postoperative radium implantation, irradiation, and chemotherapy. The surgical approach consisted of hystovaginectomy and oophorectomy without urinary diversion. These patients are free of tumor for 32, 44, and 54 months, respectively. There were no serious toxic reactions to the drugs, nor any significant postoperative urinary tract problems. The results reported here suggest that hystovaginectomy and oophorectomy coordinated with chemotherapy and irradiation is an acceptable alternative to pelvic exenteration in patients with sarcoma botryoides of the vagina or uterus.

4/30. Primary carcinosarcoma of the vagina.

    Primary carcinosarcoma of the vagina is a very rare tumor, with only eight cases diagnosed as carcinosarcoma in the literature that we are aware of. We recently encountered a case of primary carcinosarcoma of the vagina in a 75-year-old woman. The patient had a history of hysterectomy and bilateral ovariectomy for uterine corpus cancer at 55 years of age. recurrence of the cancer was suspected 17 years after the operation and irradiation therapy was performed, but the patient died 3 years after the recurrence. autopsy revealed a mass lesion in the pelvic cavity that originated in the vagina. Histological examination showed that the tumor contained anaplastic carcinoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, leiomyosarcoma and chondrosarcoma components, and it was diagnosed as carcinosarcoma. The histological diagnosis of the uterine corpus cancer was well-differentiated adenocarcinoma, and there was no sarcomatous component. The carcinosarcoma occurred 17 years after the hysterectomy, and it was concluded to be a primary carcinosarcoma of the vagina. This is the first case of primary vaginal carcinosarcoma in which the epithelial and sarcomatous components were clearly identified histologically and immunohistochemically.

5/30. Vaginoscopic resection for rhabdomyosarcoma of the vagina: a case report and review of the literature.

    rhabdomyosarcoma is the most common soft-tissue sarcoma found in children. Genitourinary sites comprise 20% of the primary location of these tumors. A polypoid form of the embryonal type of rhabdomyosarcoma, sarcoma botyroides, is often found in girls under age 5. These tumors are usually localized to the anterior vaginal wall. Their superficial location and clinical symptoms lead to early diagnosis, and these tumors are therefore considered to be the easiest to treat and most likely to be cured. In the past 30 years we have seen a shift in treatment from radical surgery to conservative surgery with chemotherapy and radiation, with improved survival and preservation of normal anatomy and improved postoperative body imagery. Conservative excision in the past has been performed by sharp curettage of the anterior vaginal wall. We present a case of a 2-yr-old child with a RMS of the vagina for which we utilized vaginoscopy not only to determine the extent of the tumor but also for precise resection using a bipolar electrode with normal saline as the distension medium.

6/30. A case of rhabdomyosarcoma of the vagina in an elderly woman.

    Most rhabdomyosarcomas of the vagina (RMSV) occur in infants and children up to six years old. RMSV in elderly patients is extremely rare. We report a case of a 70-year-old woman with RMSV. She had received surgery for uterine endometrial cancer one year before and a vaginal polypoid tumor was noted during routine follow-up vaginal examination. She was referred to our department for radiation therapy following partial tumorectomy of the lesion. She was given three sessions of intra-vaginal radiation therapy, once a week with 6 Gy at 7.5 mm below the vaginal surface and external irradiation of 50 Gy to the pelvis. However, paraaortal lymph node metastasis developed during initial radiation therapy. Furthermore, multiple bone metastases appeared at the completion of the radiation therapy. Six months after initial treatment the patient died from progression of the disease. autopsy demonstrated small residual tumor at the primary site as well as multiple systemic metastases.

7/30. Continent urinary reconstruction in rhabdomyosarcoma: a new approach.

    PURPOSE: The authors present here 5 cases of continent urinary diversion in rhabdomyosarcoma applying a recently described technique for the Mitrofanoff Principle devised by the authors. methods: Two previously irradiated rhabdomyosarcoma patients presenting with residual bladder disease and massive sensitive urinary urgency underwent a transverse colonic reservoir with catheterizable stoma. Two other patients presenting with a Bricker conduit underwent conversion into an ileal reservoir. One patient underwent reconstruction after a cystectomy. RESULTS: All patients were continent and able to perform continent intermittent catheterization. CONCLUSIONS: The technique proved to be feasible for this group of patients. The authors believe that because of its simplicity, it should be an option of continent urinary diversion when the Mitrofanoff Principle is considered.

8/30. Botryoid rhabdomyosarcoma of vagina--two case reports.

    Botryoid rhabdomyosarcoma, previously considered a type of embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma, has clinicopathological features distinctive enough to warrant its classification as a separate entity. It almost always occurs in children under 5 years of age. Two cases of botryoid rhabdomyosarcoma are reported here because of their relative rarity.

9/30. Benign mullerian papilloma of childhood.

    Benign mullerian papilloma of the female reproductive tract is a rare childhood tumor that can easily be mistaken by those unfamiliar with the entity for botryoid rhabdomyosarcoma. Ultrastructural findings have been mentioned only in two individual case reports, and these both were issued many years ago. The aim of this update is to familiarize the reader with the clinical, light, and electron microscopic features associated with this distinctive entity, and thereby hopefully preclude the risk of making a serious diagnostic error. Two cases are illustrated, one very typical in its presentation and the other less so.

10/30. A case of alveolar soft part sarcoma with vaginal metastasis: successful control of vaginal bleeding with external beam irradiation.

    Alveolar soft part sarcoma (ASPS) of the vagina is an exceptionally rare neoplasm. Furthermore, vaginal metastasis of ASPS has not been reported. A 28-year-old woman with a history of a right thigh mass diagnosed as ASPS excised 8 years ago presented to the emergency room with massive vaginal bleeding and anemia. biopsy of a vaginal mass revealed that the tumor was a vaginal metastasis of ASPS. For control of intractable bleeding and preventing further transfusions, palliative radiation therapy was planned. She received a total of 39 Gy (daily 3 Gy, using 15-MV photons), and after 6-Gy irradiation, there was no more vaginal bleeding and no more transfusion needed. This is the first case of vaginal metastasis of ASPS reported in the literature that was manifested by intractable vaginal bleeding, which was controlled successfully with radiation therapy.
