A 15-year-old boy with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) was referred to us for central venous catheter insertion, and on ultrasound of the neck, he was found to have extensive involvement of the brachial plexus due to the nerve sheath tumour
. Multiple hypoechogenic lesions resembling the internal jugular vein and internal carotid artery were visualised and could be differentiated from the vessels by Doppler ultrasound.
However, dedifferentiated liposarcoma, low grade fibromyxoid sarcoma, deep benign fibrous histiocytoma, malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumour
, (Sarcomatoid) mesothelioma, schwannoma, gastrointestinal stroma cell tumour, synovial sarcoma and leiomyoma were negative for STAT6.12
Given the overall rather benign neurogenic differentiation with focal increased cellularity, nuclear atypia, and mitotic activity, the diagnosis of neurofibroma with transition into a low-grade malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumour
(MPNST) was made (Figures 5(a) and 5(b)).
