Alveolar Soft Part Sarcoma

Common Name(s)

Alveolar Soft Part Sarcoma

Alveolar soft part sarcoma is an unusual tumor with highly characteristic histopathology and ultrastructure, controversial histogenesis, and enigmatic clinical behavior ({3:Lieberman et al., 1989}; {4:Ordonez, 1999}). The typical histology of ASPS shows well-defined nests of cells with abundant pink cytoplasm. The loss of central cohesion produces a pseudoalveolar appearance ({2:Ladanyi et al., 2001}).
