Mast-Cell Sarcomas .
Mastocytomas, Malignant .
Sarcoma, Mast Cell .
Sarcomas, Mast-Cell .
Sarcoma, Mast-Cell .
Mastocytoma, Malignant .
A unifocal malignant tumor that consists of atypical pathological MAST CELLS without systemic involvement. It causes local destructive growth in organs other than in skin or bone marrow. .

Mast Cell .
Tissue Basophil .
Tissue Basophils .
Basophils, Tissue .
Granulated cells that are found in almost all tissues, most abundantly in the skin and the gastrointestinal tract. Like the BASOPHILS, mast cells contain large amounts of HISTAMINE and HEPARIN. Unlike basophils, mast cells normally remain in the tissues and do not circulate in the blood. Mast cells, derived from the bone marrow stem cells, are regulated by the STEM CELL FACTOR. .
Sarcoma, Small Cell .
Cell Sarcoma, Small .
Cell Sarcomas, Small .
Sarcomas, Small Cell .
Small Cell Sarcoma .
Small Cell Sarcomas .
A sarcoma characterized by the presence of small cells, cells measuring 9-14 micrometers with a faint or indistinct rim of cytoplasm and an oval-to-elongated nucleus with relatively dense chromatin. (From Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992) .
Sarcoma, Clear Cell .
Clear Cell Sarcoma .
Clear Cell Sarcomas .
Sarcomas, Clear Cell .
Melanoma, Malignant, of Soft Parts .
A sarcoma of young, often female, adults of the lower extremities and acral regions, intimately bound to tendons as circumscribed but unencapsulated melanin-bearing tumors of neuroectodermal origin. An ultrastructural finding simulates flattened and curved barrel staves, corresponding to the internal structures of premelanosomes. There is a 45-60% mortality in clear cell sarcoma. (Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992) .
