In the immunohistochemical analysis, both tumor cells were positive for vimentin (Figure 1E); whereas, spindle-shaped cells were positive for desmin and actin (Figure 1F), being characterized as smooth muscle cells.
Immunohistochemical analysis demonstrates the expression of keratins AE1/AE3, CD31, ERG, and FLI1 by both the spindle and the epithelioid neoplastic cells, with variable focal and weaker immunoreactivity for CAM5.2, smooth muscle actin, epithelial membrane antigen, and pan-cytokeratin MNF116, and usually no expression of CD34, desmin, and S100-protein.
Myofibroblastic DL can also be mistaken for a leiomyosarcoma owing to its frequent expression of smooth muscle actin and desmin (Figure 3, A and B), a distinction made by careful assessment of the cytologic features of the neoplastic cells and MDM2 amplification/overexpression.
Immunohistochemistry was used to detect the expression of desmin, vimentin, and [alpha]-smooth muscle actin.
Effect of EDs Consumption for 2 Months on mRNA Expression of EPO and Desmin in the Kidney of Wistar Rats
Immunohistochemistry plays an important role in better defining the lesion with the presence of positive vimentin, smooth muscle actin, muscle-specific actin, desmin, and focally for cytokeratins in the majority of cases.
The IHC diagnosis of carcinosarcoma is established by visualizing positive reactivity of the carcinomatous elements to cytokeratin and of sarcomatous elements to vimentin or desmin. Additional IHC investigation typically is done to verifiably rule out other types of tumors.
Immunohistochemically, it differs from other high-grade sarcomas by its SMA (+), desmin (+), h-caldesmon (+) S100 (-), C-kit (-) and CD34 (-) staining pattern.
CD 117, DOG 1, S100, CD34, desmin, and neuroendocrine markers such as chromogranin, synaptophysin, neuron-specific enolase, CD56, CD57, and PGP 9.5 are negative (1, 5).
It is ruled out with IHC for Desmin, myogenin and Myo D1.
