Leggi l'articolo originale


In October, 2018, a 74-year-old male patient, who was a professor emeritus of cardiology, was admitted to the Department of Haematology & Oncology of Medical University Innsbruck (Innsbruck, Austria) because of pain in both shoulders. He underwent CT scan and 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose PET scan, which showed two pulmonary lesions and osteolytic destruction of both shoulders (figure). Examination of a biopsy specimen taken from the right shoulder revealed liposarcoma. Fluorescence in-situ hybridisation showed amplification of MDM2 (murine double minute oncogene).
