IN Podiatrist To Present Leiomyosarcoma Case at World Congress of Podiatry


 


Michael Marasco, a staff doctor of podiatric medicine with Franciscan St. Anthony Health-Crown Point, who also has a private practice in Merrillville will address physicians from more than 40 nations at the World Congress of Podiatry, conducted in Rome, Italy, Oct. 17 to 19. He will discuss a case involving soft tissue leiomyosarcoma (smooth muscle tumor), which had been incorrectly diagnosed as an ankle sprain by several physicians for more than a year, before being brought to his attention.


 













Dr. Michael Marasco



 


“Examining her soon led me to believe that something was going on here beyond a routine ankle sprain,” Marasco said, adding, he looked “beyond the obvious,” because of the patient’s continuing symptoms. “Leiomyosarcomas of the foot are rare, but they are not unheard of and, in this case, proved to be the unfortunate outcome,” he said, adding the tumor had spread to the 74-year-old woman’s spine and legs.
