Wiim's Tumour with Rhabdoid Elements (H & E, 40X)
(2012) A remarkably simple genome underlies highly malignant pediatric rhabdoid cancers.
Their little boy Oliver was diagnosed with a malignant rhabdoid tumour.
Different types of pediatric renal tumors are known, the commonest of which is Wilms tumor or nephroblastoma, other less common tumors are nephroblastomatosis, rhabdoid malignant tumor, clear cell sarcoma, congenital mesoblastic nephroma and multilocular cystic nephroma3.
(9) Individual tumor cells are often round to oval with scant or moderate eosinophillic cytoplasm and pleomorphic nuclei with rhabdoid and epitheloid cells scattered at periphery.9 ESMC expresses neuroendocrine differentiation with strong immunopositivity for vimentin and synaptophysin (7) and weak or focal positivity for EMA and S-100.7 Myxoid matrix with lobulated neoplastic cells is also seen in chordoma, parachordoma, chordoid meningiomas, and myxopapillary ependymoma.

The others were diagnosed as angiosarcoma, undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma, solitary fibrous tumor, low-grade fibromyxoid sarcoma, malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor, breast phyllodes tumor, round cell sarcoma with CIC rearrangement, neuroblastoma, malignant extrarenal rhabdoid tumor, and myxofibrosarcoma.
Abundant rhabdoid cells with typical eccentric nuclei and cytoplasmic inclusions were seen scattered throughout.
The specimen was then sent for an outside consultation, and the diagnosis was edited to epithelioid sarcoma with rhabdoid features (proximal type).
