Clear Cell Sarcoma of Tendons and Aponeuroses
This highly malignant tumor seems to be of neuroectodermal origin, possibly from melanocytes migrated during the embryonic development. Cytogenetically, a translocation of chromosomes 12 and 22 (which is not a feature of melanomas) has been frequently found.
