Abstract

Paired box (PAX) gene antibodies have made it into the mainstream of tumor diagnosis in the recent years. We report the immunoreactivity expression patterns of three PAX genes (PAX2, PAX5 and PAX8) in poorly differentiated small round cell tumors of childhood for possible useful diagnostic applications. We collected and analyzed 123 cases of poorly differentiated small round cell tumors of childhood for their PAX immunoexpression patterns. The results indicated that PAX2 was strongly positive in all alveolar rhabdomyosarcomas and in two-thirds of the kidney clear cell sarcomas, and displayed variable expression in one-half of the embryonal rhabdomyosarcomas. PAX8 immunoexpression was noticed in five and three cases of alveolar rhabdomyosarcomas and embryonal rhabdomyosarcomas, respectively. About one-third of malignant rhabdoid tumors were PAX2-positive and PAX8-positive. All of the Ewing sarcoma and neuroblastoma cases stained negative with all three PAX stains.
