Pathology of Leiomyosarcoma of the Pancreas

Dr Sampurna Roy MD        

 

Primary leiomyosarcoma of the pancreas is a very rare malignant tumour.

A spindle cell pattern at light microscopy, immunocytochemical reactivity with muscle-specific actin, alpha-smooth muscle actin, desmin, alpha-1-antitrypsin and vimentin and ultrastructural features of smooth muscle differentiation help to establish the diagnosis.

It is an aggressive neoplasm characterized by short survival and a high rate of metastases.
