Sclerosing epithelioid fibrosarcoma of the pancreas

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Sclerosing epithelioid fibrosarcoma (SEF) is a distinctive variant of fibrosarcoma characterized by epithelioid tumor cells arranged in nests, cords, or sheets embedded within a sclerotic collagenous matrix. It is a relatively newly described malignant fibroblastic tumor, with only fewer than 100 cases reported in English literature. Most cases are located in the lower extremities and limb girdles. Here, we present a case of SEF of the pancreas in a 67-year-old white man and provide a review of literature to date, with emphasis on the differential diagnosis. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of SEF involving the pancreas. © 2013 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
