Abstract

Following pulmonary metastases, alveolar soft part sarcoma has an unexplained predisposition to metastasize to the brain. Herein, a case of alveolar soft part sarcoma solitarily metastatic to the brain is described. A 23-year old female underwent the resection of alveolar soft part sarcoma from the right thigh. Three years after the surgery, a brain tumor was resected and pathology proved it was a metastatic alveolar soft part sarcoma. She is currently alive and well 6 years after brain surgery. Our report suggests that surgical resection for solitary brain metastasis from alveolar soft part sarcoma is an effective treatment modality.
