About Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor

Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor, also known as malignant neurilemmoma, is related to malignant triton tumor and epithelioid malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor. An important gene associated with Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor is NF1 (Neurofibromin 1), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Apoptotic Pathways in Synovial Fibroblasts and Disease. The drugs Doxorubicin and Cyclophosphamide have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include lung, t cells and small intestine, and related phenotypes are Increased shRNA abundance (Z-score > 2) and Increased shRNA abundance (Z-score > 2)

Major Symptoms of Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor

Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor, also known as a peripheral nerve sheath tumor, is a rare and aggressive type of cancer that arises from the sheath surrounding a peripheral nerve. The major symptoms include pain, numbness, weakness, and tingling in the affected limb, which often worsens with movement. The tumor can also cause muscle weakness, muscle atrophy, and decreased reflexes. In advanced stages, the tumor may cause significant muscle weakness and even wasting. Treatment typically involves a combination of chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and/or surgery, with the specific approach depending on the size and location of the tumor.
