Adamantinoma-like Ewing Sarcoma of the Salivary Glands: A Newly Recognized Mimicker of Basaloid Salivary Carcinomas.

Am J Surg Pathol 2018 Oct 3. Epub 2018 Oct 3.

Department of Pathology, The Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore, MD.

Adamantinoma-like Ewing sarcoma (ALES) is a rare tumor that demonstrates the EWSR1-FLI1 translocation characteristic of Ewing sarcoma despite overt epithelial differentiation including diffuse expression of cytokeratins and p40. Most cases of ALES described to date have occurred in the head and neck where they can mimic a wide range of small round blue cell tumors. Because distinguishing ALES from basaloid salivary gland carcinomas can be particularly difficult, we analyzed a series of 10 ALESs that occurred in the salivary glands with the aim of identifying features that allow for better recognition of this entity.

[Use of Solid Intercalary Allografts for Reconstruction Following the Resection of Primary Bone Tumors].

Acta Chir Orthop Traumatol Cech 2018 ;85(3):171-178

I. ortopedická klinika Fakultní nemocnice U sv. Anny v Brně, Lékařská fakulta Masarykovy univerzity Brno.

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY There are several treatment options for bone tumors at diaphyseal/metadiaphyseal sites of long bones (with joint preservation) including massive intercalary allografts, autografts (vascularized or non-vascularized fibular autograft, devitalised tumor bearing bone), endoprosthetic replacement (intercalary spacer), cementoplasty with ostheosynthesis and distraction osteogenesis. Reconstruction using massive intercalary bone allografts is for us the method of choice in case of curable primary bone tumors at the diaphyseal/metadiaphyseal region. The purpose of this study is to evaluate our results and complications. Read More

J Pediatr Orthop 2017 Dec 8. Epub 2017 Dec 8.

The Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, ON, Canada.

Background: The proposed association between osteofibrous dysplasia and adamantinoma has led some to advocate resection of the entire lesion, which can require major subsequent reconstruction. However, this link remains unproven and there is some support in more recent literature for a less aggressive approach. This study aims to describe our experience managing pediatric tibial osteofibrous dysplasia with such an approach and to report functional outcomes in children treated thus. Read More

SMARCA4-deficient Sinonasal Carcinoma.

Head Neck Pathol 2017 Dec 7;11(4):541-545. Epub 2017 Feb 7.

Institute of Pathology, Technical University of Munich (TUM), Munich, Germany.

The term "sinonasal undifferentiated carcinoma (SNUC)" has been coined in 1986 for a highly aggressive sinonasal tract epithelial neoplasm showing distinctive morphology, but lacking any specific line of differentiation. Recent developments resulted in a dynamic splitting of new entities traditionally included in the spectrum of SNUC. Sinonasal NUT-midline carcinoma, adamantinoma-like Ewing family tumors and most recently, SMARCB1(INI1)-deficient sinonasal carcinoma are the main entities defined by specific genetic aberrations.

*Department of Pathology, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD §Department of Pathology, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Pittsburgh, PA ‡Department of Pathology, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY †Department of Pathology, Padova University Hospital, Padova, Italy.

Ewing sarcoma family tumors (EFTs) of the head and neck are rare and may be difficult to diagnose, as they display significant histologic overlap with other more common undifferentiated small blue round cell malignancies. Occasionally, EFTs may exhibit overt epithelial differentiation in the form of diffuse cytokeratin immunoexpression or squamous pearls, resembling the so-called adamantinoma-like EFTs and being challenging to distinguish from bona fide carcinomas. Furthermore, the presence of EWSR1 gene rearrangement correlated with strong keratin expression may suggest a myoepithelial carcinoma. Read More

Ameloblastoma of the anterior mandible.

Natl J Maxillofac Surg 2014 Jan;5(1):47-50

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, King George's Medical University, Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India.

Ameloblastoma or adamantinoma is the rarest of the three forms of tumor of the odontogenic type. They are benign, locally aggressive neoplasms arising from ameloblasts, which typically occur at the angle of the mandible, and are often associated with an un-erupted tooth and must, therefore, be differentiated from a dentigerous cyst which will be centered on the crown. When in the maxilla (less common), they are located in the premolar region, and can extend up in the maxillary sinus. Read More
