Erem, A.S., Allamaneni, S.S., Braverman, T.S.

Omental calcifications of the peritoneum are typically small and asymptomatic. However, larger psammomatous bodies that cause symptoms such as abdominal pain and bloating are often associated with tumors such as primary serous papillary carcinoma, mesothelioma, or metastatic ovarian cancer.

CAP20: Borderline malignant solitary fibrous tumor of the liver: An uncommon occurrence

Erem, A.S., Ginting, K.E., Braverman, T.S., Allamaneni, S.S.

Please join us at this years CAP20 virtual conference being held from October 10 to 13th or look for our abstract in the CAP20 special edition of Archives of Pathology. Our case documents a rare occurrence of a solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) in the liver and an equally rarer circumstance where this neoplasm tests positive for cytokeratin, bringing the possibility of malignancy into consideration. We will discuss the immunohistochemical signature and cytological description of the tumour, differential diagnosis and recommended treatment / management strategy for the patient
