## Neurofibromatous changes in dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans: a potential pitfall in the diagnosis of a serious cutaneous soft tissue neoplasm.

Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is a low-grade malignant neoplasm that has the potential for aggressive local growth and destruction if not treated appropriately. Although the storiform arrangement of spindle cells in DFSP is relatively characteristic, histologic patterns simulating other benign as well as malignant neoplasms such as dermatofibroma, neurofibroma, malignant fibrous histiocytoma, and atypical fibroxanthoma have been described.

We consider a version of the IFPT problem where the barrier Is {\em fixed at zero} and the problem is to find an entrance law $\mu$ and a Time-change $I$ such that for the time-changed process $X\circ I$ the IFPT Problem is solved by a constant barrier at the level zero. For any L\'{e}vy Process $X$...

We propose That malignant transformation is a two-phase process, where an initial increase Of system plasticity is followed by a decrease of plasticity at late stages of Carcinogenesis as a model of cellular learning. We describe the hallmarks of Increased system plasticity of early, tumor initiatin...
