IHC advice for high grade mesenchymal tumour

We have recently learnt that one of Dr Olaleke Folaranmi's patients in Nigeria had high grade mesenchymal tumour, however IHC and digital pathology is not available.

The blocks just arrived to us and we are making plans for the IHC tests and whole slide scanning.


As always, X-WOW will cover all the cost. But we need your help with the decisions.


Here we have nephrectomy specimen from a young adult female who presented with haematuria, abdominal pain and loss of weight.

Initial idea (based on the differentials)
1. Cytokeratins (to rule out sarcomatoid carcinoma)
2. S100
3. Soft tissue work up Desmin, SMA, CD34, myogenin or MyoD1

Please kindly share your opinions to confirm the IHCs need to be done.
