abstract

  • Identification of an EWS/ETS gene fusion is useful in providing objective evidence of the diagnosis of pPNET in patients over the age of 40 years. This diagnosis should be considered in adults who present with bone and soft tissue SRCTs and appropriate biopsy specimens should be collected for molecular analysis at the time of diagnosis.
