Abstract

The presence of pleomorphic cells with strong eosinphilic cytoplasm in a pleomorphic sarcoma is suggestive of a PRMS. Diffuse, strong expression of desmin and negative staining for α-SMA further facilitate the diagnosis of PRMS and its differential diagnosis from pleomorphic leiomyosarcoma. Although PRMS may affect children or adolescents, it should be cautious not to misdiagnose anaplastic rhabdomyosarcoma as PRMS. PRMS is a high-grade sarcoma with a poor prognosis.
