Featuring perspectives from Dr Richard F Riedel, including the following topics:

  • Introduction: (0:00)
  • Case: A woman in her late 20s with multiregimen-recurrent metastatic alveolar soft part sarcoma after treatment with multiple VEGF tyrosine kinase inhibitors and a single-agent PD-1 inhibitor receives axitinib/pembrolizumab — Nam Bui, MD (4:14)
  • Case: A man in his mid 60s with metastatic dedifferentiated chondrosarcoma of the right femur undergoes resection and receives doxorubicin/cisplatin followed by maintenance pembrolizumab — IDH2 and TERT promoter mutations, PD-L1 2+ by IHC — Melanie B Thomas, MD (10:06)
  • Case: A man in his early 30s with an asymptomatic “bulge on abdomen” found to be a 6.2-cm mass receives a diagnosis via biopsy of desmoid fibromatosis. Local treatment team recommends surgery — Dr Bui (22:20)
  • Case: A woman in her early 40s with a history of familial adenomatous polyposis undergoes surgical excision of 3 colon cancer lesions followed by adjuvant capecitabine. On follow-up she is found to have a rapidly enlarging mass abutting the iliac and mesenteric vessels. Fine needle aspiration shows desmoid tumor — Dr Bui (29:37)
  • Case: A man in his mid 30s with a protruding mass on his back diagnosed as a desmoid tumor receives sorafenib followed by second-line liposomal doxorubicin — Atif M Hussein, MD, MMM (33:29)
  • Case: A man in his mid 50s with multiregimen-recurrent metastatic mediastinal liposarcoma receives resection, chemotherapy and eribulin — CDK4 amplification identified by next-generation sequencing (NGS) — Dr Thomas (39:31)
  • Case: A man in his late 60s with abdominal pain and weight loss is diagnosed with metastatic high-grade myxoid liposarcoma of the retroperitoneum — Dr Hussein (43:06)
  • Case: A woman in her late 50s diagnosed with Grade 2 leiomyosarcoma develops a recurrence 3 years after resection and adjuvant doxorubicin/ifosfamide — Dr Hussein (47:34)
  • Case: A woman in her early 60s presents to the ER with shortness of breath and is diagnosed with unresectable leiomyosarcoma of the mediastinum — Dr Bui (51:48)
  • Case: A man in his mid 40s diagnosed with gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) receives neoadjuvant imatinib followed by resection, then adjuvant imatinib — KIT exon 9 mutation identified by NGS — Dr Bui (54:13)
  • Case: A man in his mid 60s with mesenteric recurrence of abdominal GIST experiences transaminitis with imatinib — microsatellite stable, no actionable mutations by NGS — Dr Thomas (58:40)
