abstract

  • Our findings suggest that alterations in the adenomatous polyposis coli/beta-catenin pathway and cyclin D1 dysregulation may contribute to the pathogenesis of pleuropulmonary desmoid tumors and SFTs. CD34 and smooth muscle actin stains are particularly useful for differentiating between pleuropulmonary desmoid tumors and SFTs.
