Liposarcoma

A malignant tumor derived from primitive or embryonal lipoblastic cells. It may be composed of well-differentiated fat cells or may be dedifferentiated: myxoid (LIPOSARCOMA, MYXOID), round-celled, or pleomorphic, usually in association with a rich network of capillaries. Recurrences are common and dedifferentiated liposarcomas metastasize to the lungs or serosal surfaces. (From Dorland, 27th ed; Stedman, 25th ed) [from MeSH]

Microtia-Anotia

Microtia-anotia (M-A) can occur either as an isolated defect or in association with other defects. Only in a minority of cases has a genetic or environmental cause been found; in these cases, M-A is usually part of a specific pattern of multiple congenital anomalies. For instance, M-A is an essential component of isotretinoin embryopathy (243440), is an important manifestation of thalidomide embryopathy, and can be part of the prenatal alcohol syndrome and maternal diabetes embryopathy. M-A occurs with a number of single gene disorders, such as Treacher Collins syndrome (154500), branchiotorenal/branchiootic syndromes (see 113650 and 602588), oculoauricular syndrome (612109), microtia with hearing impairment and cleft palate (612290), or chromosomal syndromes, such as trisomy 18. M-A also occurs as part of seemingly nonrandom patterns of multiple defects, such as Goldenhar syndrome (164210) (Mastroiacovo et al., 1995). Alasti and Van Camp (2009) reviewed the genetics of microtia and microtia-associated syndromes and discussed their clinical aspects in relation to the causative genes. They stated that the estimated prevalence of microtia is 0.8 to 4.2 per 10,000 births, that it is more common in males, and that it can have a genetic or environmental predisposition. [from OMIM]

Liposarcoma, well differentiated

A locally aggressive malignant neoplasm composed of mature adipocytes showing cell size variation and nuclear atypia. It is often associated with the presence of hyperchromatic multinucleated stromal cells, and varying numbers of lipoblasts. There are three histologic subtypes, sclerosing, inflammatory, and spindle cell liposarcoma. These tumors do not usually metastasize unless they undergo dedifferentiation. [from NCI]

Fat

The glyceryl esters of a fatty acid, or of a mixture of fatty acids. They are generally odorless, colorless, and tasteless if pure, but they may be flavored according to origin. Fats are insoluble in water, soluble in most organic solvents. They occur in animal and vegetable tissue and are generally obtained by boiling or by extraction under pressure. They are important in the diet (DIETARY FATS) as a source of energy. (Grant & Hackh's Chemical Dictionary, 5th ed) [from MeSH]

Epithelioid sarcoma

An aggressive malignant neoplasm of uncertain lineage, characterized by the presence of epithelioid cells forming nodular patterns. The nodules often undergo central necrosis, resulting in a pseudogranulomatous growth pattern. It usually occurs in young adults. The most common sites of involvement are the extremities (distal-type epithelioid sarcoma), and less frequently the pelvis, perineum, and genital organs (proximal-type epithelioid sarcoma). [from NCI]
