This tumor shows sharp demarcation between conventional low-grade myxoinflammatory fibroblastic sarcoma consisting of scattered neoplastic cells within an inflammatory fibromyxoid background with arrow indicating a neoplastic cell with inclusion-like nucleolus (A), and high-grade undifferentiated sarcoma with fascicles of pleomorphic spindle cells, brisk mitotic activity, and atypical mitoses (B) (hematoxylin-eosin, original magnification X400 [A and B]).

However, the authors noted that labeling with CD3 was variable among the neoplastic cell populations throughout the body: not all of the neoplastic cells were positive for CD3, suggesting that some neoplastic cells had lost their characteristic cell-surface markers.
