Low-grade fibromyxoid sarcoma: CT, sonography, and MR findings in 3 cases

J Thorac Imaging. 2005 Nov;20(4):294-7. doi: 10.1097/01.rti.0000171420.81428.16.


Low-grade fibromyxoid sarcoma (LGFMS) is a distinctive variant of fibrosarcoma characterized by deceptively bland histologic features and a paradoxically aggressive clinical course. The radiologic finding of this uncommon tumor has not been described to date. In this report, 3 cases of LGFMS occurring in axilla, chest wall, and pleura are presented with CT, MRI, and sonographic findings.
