 en Hodgkin Lymphoma Mimicking a Large Soft Tissue Sarcoma of The Shoulder: The Essential Role of Immunohistochemistry in Histopathological Diagnosis
Abidin, Ibrahim Zainal; Zulkarnaen, Ahmad Narihan; Norlida, Awang Ojep Dk; Hoong, Chan Wai & Ling, Law Huong

Abstract

The shoulder and axillary regions contain various complex anatomical structures in close proximity, many of which can give rise to neoplasms. Determining the origin and hence the exact diagnosis of advanced (diffuse) tumours in this region may become problematic. In view of the tumour morphology and the affected location in this case, we highlighted the importance of Hodgkin lymphoma immunohistochemistry interpretation in a tumour which was initially suspected to be a soft tissue sarcoma.
