Abstract

Extranodal follicular dendritic cell sarcoma (FDCS) is a very rare malignancy with a variable clinical course. It is often not considered and has the potential to result in a misdiagnosis of other common sarcomas or sarcomatoid carcinomas. This is particularly true with the preoperative biopsy specimen, in which the tissue sample is often small. A case of FDCS in a 63-year-old woman, arising in the urinary bladder, a previously unreported site, is described. The patient presented with the typical clinical symptoms of a bladder cancer, and the morphology of the tumor was similar to a lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma, ultimately resulting in it being misdiagnosed. The patient received radical cystectomy, without further radiotherapy or chemotherapy. Two years after operation, a metastatic tumor to the lung was found. The mass of the right main bronchus lumen was frozen and resected through bronchoscopy, and radiotherapy was performed. The patient has lived with the tumor since then. This paper presents the first FDCS occurring in the urinary bladder with metastasis to the lung and emphasizes potential diagnostic pitfalls.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 06 July 2017.
All research outputs
#8,860,766
of 15,463,540 outputs
Outputs from Diagnostic Pathology
#268
of 917 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#128,459
of 266,890 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Diagnostic Pathology
#2
of 5 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 15,463,540 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 41st percentile – i.e., 41% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 917 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.3. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 68% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 266,890 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 50% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 5 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 3 of them.
