[Volunteer Opportunity for Pathologists] mesenchymal tumour

We have recently learnt that one of Dr Olaleke Folaranmi's patients in Nigeria had high grade mesenchymal tumour, however IHC and digital pathology is not available, so we decided to help!

The tissue blocks have arrived to us and we are preparing to help with the IHC tests and whole slide scanning.



Please visit the H&E whole slide images here:​




X-WOW will cover all the cost. But we need your help with the decisions.​


Background: ​
Here we have nephrectomy specimen from a young adult female who presented with haematuria, abdominal pain and loss of weight.​
Initial idea (based on the differentials)
1. Cytokeratins (to rule out sarcomatoid carcinoma)
2. S100
3. Soft tissue work up Desmin, SMA, CD34, myogenin or MyoD1

​Please see the original post on twitter: https://twitter.com/DrGeeONE/status/1298688665024114689


Please kindly share your opinions to confirm the IHCs need to be done.

To submit a report is simple, please register an account on X-WOW Consultation Without Borders, create a service page and send us a custom offer ($0 if you would like to volunteer).​

We would appreciate your opinions!
