Sample text

A rare malignant fibrous histiocytoma presents as a soft tissue polyp. A carcinosarcoma is uncommon in the esophagus. Histologically, these tumors show elements of both squamous cell carcinoma and sarcoma. Histogenesis is believed to involve metaplasia of some carcinomatous cells toward mesenchymal differentiation. Only rarely is a carcinosarcoma a result of simultaneous adjacent tumor development from both epithelial and mesenchymal tissue, identified by distinct immunoreactive and genetic clonalities in the two components.

Also, more distant involvement cannot be evaluated. Endoscopic US often does suggest whether a carcinoma is limited to the mucosa or submucosa, or extends into adjacent tissues. Using endoscopic US criteria, a blinded evaluation of patients with esophageal malignancy attempted to differentiate between tumors limited to the esophageal wall (T1-2) and extraesophageal (T3-4) involvement (62); the accuracy of muscularis disruption and tumor border irregularity was low in differentiating between intra- and extraesophageal disease.

Computed tomography identifies any exophytic component. These tumors are isointense with skeletal muscle on T1-weighted MRI and hyperintense on T2-weighted MRI. 27. A carcinosarcoma presents as an expansile intraluminal polyp (arrows). ) Commonly a carcinosarcoma presents as an intraluminal polyp mimicking a fibrovascular polyp (Fig. 27). Melanoma Other Although liposarcomas are relatively common throughout the body, they are rare in the esophagus. Some appear polypoid, and imaging suggests a fibrovascular polyp.
