Overview

NCI Definition: A soft tissue tumor of uncertain lineage characterized by the presence of neoplastic spindle-shaped to round cells in a fibromyxoid stroma. Metaplastic bone formation may or may not be present. [1]

Fibromyxoid tumors most frequently harbor alterations in PTEN, WHSC1, RPTOR, RB1, and PHF1 [2].

Most Commonly Altered Genes in Fibromyxoid Tumor

PTEN Loss, WHSC1 Mutation, WHSC1 C687R, RPTOR Mutation, and RPTOR A245V are the most common alterations in fibromyxoid tumor [2].
