Abstract

We report FDG PET/CT appearance of malignant transformation of retroperitoneal inflammatory pseudotumor to pleomorphic sarcoma in a 78-year-old woman. The patient was diagnosed with left retroperitoneal pseudotumor in 2007. She subsequently suffered from recurrent disease and chronic osteomyelitis in the L5 vertebral body in July 2008, status post surgical excision. In November 2009, after the patient developed left groin pain, MRI study of lumbosacral spine and whole-body PET/CT study demonstrated 2 hypermetabolic soft-tissue masses originating from the L5 surgical bed. These masses were subsequently resected and were consistent with pleomorphic sarcoma. Malignant transformation of retroperitoneal pseudotumor to pleomorphic sarcoma is extremely rare.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 15 April 2012.
All research outputs
#2,940,706
of 4,507,072 outputs
Outputs from Clinical Nuclear Medicine
#529
of 1,805 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#44,285
of 76,546 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Clinical Nuclear Medicine
#32
of 85 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 4,507,072 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 31st percentile – i.e., 31% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,805 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 0.9. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 55% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 76,546 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 38th percentile – i.e., 38% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 85 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 16th percentile – i.e., 16% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
