Wieneke JA, Gannon FH, Heffner DK, Thompson LD. Giantcelltumor of the larynx: A
study was to investigate several cases of giantcelltumor of bone
(TCG), chondroblastoma and aneurysmal bone cyst (ABC) by immunohistochemistry (IHC) with a
panel of markers: p63, S-100, CD68, CD56, DOG1, Galectin-1, D2-40, CD34, CD45 and ki-67, some
of which proved to be specifi c for a certain entity.
Material and methods. The cases were retrospectively selected from cases processed in our facility
where the surgical excision material was histopathologically analyzed in optical microscopy using
the usual staining hematoxylin and eosin. The immunohistochemistry
Material and method. The study included a group of 28 patients, of whom 20 had pelvic limb tumor
formation. Malignant bone tumors were present in 18 patients and benign tumors in 10 patients.
The most commonly encountered was osteosarcoma in 12 patients, Ewing sarcoma in 4 patients
and giantcelltumor in 3 patients. Patient follow-up was conducted within 4 years (with an average
of 3-5 years).
Results. 5 of our patients developed pulmonary metastases 8 months after surgery and, for 4 of
the patients, pulmonary determinations were extirpated without subsequent

deficits [ 15 ]. Somatic mutations in the H3F3 gene were reported in pediatric glioblastoma [ 16 ] and in giantcelltumors of the bone [ 17 ]. Furthermore, it was recently suggested that the pathogenic mechanism of germline histone mutations is distinct from that of the published cancer-associated somatic histone mutations, and may converge on control of cell proliferation [ 18 ]. In our patient, we identified a heterozygous de novo missense variant in the H3F3A gene (NM_002107.4: c. 185 T>G), which is absent from the gnomAD and from the Slovenian Genome databases
