- clear cell sarcoma of kidney (CCSK) (15474157)

- endometrial stromal sarcoma (ESS) (23599159)

  • YWHAE-FAM22 fusion gene in endometrial stromal sarcoma by t(10;17)(q22;p13)
  • YWHAE rearrangement identified by FISH and RT-PCR in endometrial stromal sarcomas (23599159)
  • Endometrial stromal sarcomas represent the second most common mesenchymal uterine tumor.
  • The 2003 WHO classification distinguishes low-grade and undifferentiated endometrial stromal sarcomas with different prognoses.
  • Endometrial stromal sarcomas are a genetically heterogeneous group of sarcomas harboring different cytogenetic anomalies.
  • A fusion between the YWHAE and FAM22A/B genes subsequent to a t(10;17) (q22;p13) has been described in endometrial sarcomas with high-grade histology.
