A case of ectopic ACTH syndrome due to DDAVP-sensitive but V1b receptor-negative bronchial typical carcinoid with lymphatic metastasis and plasma ProGRP elevation.

Endocr J 2018 Dec 20;65(12):1161-1169. Epub 2018 Sep 20.

Department of Diabetes and Endocrinology, Kansai Rosai Hospital, Amagasaki, Hyogo, Japan.

Ectopic ACTH syndrome (EAS) is a potentially fatal endocrine disease that results from a variety of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), such as small cell lung cancer (SCLC) and bronchial typical carcinoid. Typical carcinoid is usually slow growing, not associated with plasma progastrin releasing peptide (ProGRP) elevation. Here, we report a 47-year-old female smoker with progressive typical carcinoid and plasma ProGRP elevation. Read More

Diagnostic challenges and management of a patient with acromegaly due to ectopic growth hormone-releasing hormone secretion from a bronchial carcinoid tumour.

Endocrinol Diabetes Metab Case Rep 2017 6;2017. Epub 2017 Jan 6.

Leeds Centre for Diabetes and Endocrinology , St James's University Hospital, Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, Leeds , UK.

A male patient presented at the age of 30 with classic clinical features of acromegaly and was found to have elevated growth hormone levels, not suppressing during an oral glucose tolerance test. His acromegaly was originally considered to be of pituitary origin, based on a CT scan, which was interpreted as showing a pituitary macroadenoma. Despite two trans-sphenoidal surgeries, cranial radiotherapy and periods of treatment with bromocriptine and octreotide, his acromegaly remained active clinically and biochemically. Read More

The value of SHOX2 methylation test in peripheral blood samples used for the differential diagnosis of lung cancer and other lung disorders.

Neoplasma 2016 ;63(2):246-53

Methylation of the cytosine residues within the CpG dinucleotides plays an important role in the fundamental cellular processes, human diseases and even cancer. The DNA methylation represents a very stable sign and therefore may be used as a valuable marker for cancer screening. Epigenetic cancer biomarkers are independent of classical morphology and thus show extensive potential to overcome the limitations of cytology. Read More

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Shinshu University School of Medicine, 3-1-1 Asahi, Matsumoto, Nagano 390-8621, Japan.

Bronchial epithelial cells and mesothelial cells are crucial targets for the safety assessment of inhalation of carbon nanotubes (CNTs), which resemble asbestos particles in shape. Intrinsic properties of multiwalled CNTs (MWCNTs) are known to cause potentially hazardous effects on intracellular and extracellular pathways. These interactions alter cellular signaling and affect major cell functions, resulting in cell death, lysosome injury, reactive oxygen species production, apoptosis, and cytokine release. Read More

Lung tumorigenesis induced by human vascular endothelial growth factor (hVEGF)-A165 overexpression in transgenic mice and amelioration of tumor formation by miR-16.

Oncotarget 2015 Apr;6(12):10222-38

Department of Life Sciences and Agricultural Biotechnology Center, National Chung Hsing University, Taichung 402, Taiwan.

Many studies have shown that vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), especially the human VEGF-A165 (hVEGF-A165) isoform, is a key proangiogenic factor that is overexpressed in lung cancer. We generated transgenic mice that overexpresses hVEGF-A165 in lung-specific Clara cells to investigate the development of pulmonary adenocarcinoma. In this study, three transgenic mouse strains were produced by pronuclear microinjection, and Southern blot analysis indicated similar patterns of the foreign gene within the genomes of the transgenic founder mice and their offspring.

Triple-peptide receptor targeting in vitro allows detection of all tested gut and bronchial NETs.

J Nucl Med 2015 Apr 19;56(4):613-5. Epub 2015 Feb 19.

Cell Biology and Experimental Cancer Research, Institute of Pathology, University of Berne, Berne, Switzerland.

Unlabelled: A high proportion of gut and bronchial neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) overexpresses somatostatin receptors, especially the sst2 subtype. It has also recently been observed that incretin receptors, namely glucagonlike peptide 1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic peptide (GIP) receptors, can be overexpressed in gut and bronchial NETs. However, because not all tumors can express these receptors in sufficient amounts, in vivo imaging with a single radioligand may not always be successful. Read More

Fetal bronchoscopy as a useful procedure in a case with prenatal diagnosis of congenital microcystic adenomatoid malformation.

Fetal Diagn Ther 2015 14;37(1):75-80. Epub 2014 Aug 14.

Massive microcystic congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation (CCAM) and bronchial atresia are associated with a high perinatal mortality secondary to lung hypoplasia and cardiac dysfunction, and fetal intervention should be considered to improve prognosis. Therapeutic options include open fetal surgery with pulmonary resection, fetal sclerotherapy and fetoscopy. We present a case with a severely enlarged left lung without ultrasound signs of dilated airways compatible with the diagnosis of microcystic CCAM, hydrops and severe contralateral lung hypoplasia that was treated successfully at 30 weeks of gestation by fetal bronchoscopy, through which bronchial atresia was identified at the end of the left mainstem bronchi and permeabilized by laser ablation.

Lung India 2014 Jul;31(3):274-6

Department of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery, Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, Punjab and Haryana, India.

Mucous gland adenoma of the lung is an uncommon benign tumor that histologically resembles the mucus-secreting component of tracheobronchial gland. The majority arises within the main, lobar, or segmental bronchi but parenchymal involvement had also been reported. We herein present a case of mucous gland adenoma arising from the left lower lobe bronchus. Read More

A historical appreciation of bronchopulmonary neuroendocrine neoplasia: resolution of a carcinoid conundrum.

Thorac Surg Clin 2014 Aug;24(3):235-55

Department of Surgery, Yale School of Medicine, 310 Cedar Street, New Haven, CT 06520, USA.

In the three-quarters of a century that have elapsed since the first description of a bronchial carcinoid, the field has progressed from serendipitous radiological or bronchoscopic diagnosis to computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and somatostatin receptor imaging identification. Similarly, pathologic techniques have advanced from a naïve assessment of neoplasia to a delineation of several tumor subtypes and an understanding of the neuroendocrine basis of the disease process. A key unresolved question is the identification of the genetic and environmental activators that are responsible for the initiation of pulmonary neuroendocrine cell proliferation and neoplastic transformation.

Management of endocrine disease: a clinical update on tumor-induced hypoglycemia.

Eur J Endocrinol 2014 Apr 14;170(4):R147-57. Epub 2014 Mar 14.

Department of Endocrinology, Hospital Ramón y Cajal, Ctra. de Colmenar, Km 9.100, 28034 Madrid, Spain.

Tumor-induced hypoglycemia (TIH) is a rare clinical entity that may occur in patients with diverse kinds of tumor lineages and that may be caused by different mechanisms. These pathogenic mechanisms include the eutopic insulin secretion by a pancreatic islet β-cell tumor, and also the ectopic tumor insulin secretion by non-islet-cell tumor, such as bronchial carcinoids and gastrointestinal stromal tumors. Insulinoma is, by far, the most common tumor associated with clinical and biochemical hypoglycemia. Read More

Malignant transformation of well-differentiated papillary mesothelioma 13 years after the diagnosis: a case report.

Clin Respir J 2014 Jan 26;8(1):124-9. Epub 2013 Nov 26.

Chair of Geriatrics, Unit of Respiratory Pathophysiology, Campus Bio Medico University, Rome, Italy.

Well-differentiated papillary mesothelioma (WDPM) is a rare mesothelial tumour affecting mostly the peritoneum of women in their reproductive age, but it may occur also at other sites, including the pleura. It is considered a specific pathological entity different from diffuse malignant mesothelioma as it displays a characteristic histological pattern and is associated with a slowly progressive clinical course. We report the case of a 79-year-old man with a history of right pleural WDPM at age 64, which was successfully treated with chemotherapy, radiotherapy and talc pleurodesis. Read More

Argon plasma coagulation and electrosurgery for benign endobronchial tumors.

J Bronchology Interv Pulmonol 2013 Jan;20(1):38-40

Wake Forest Baptist Health, Winston-Salem, NC 27157, USA.

Background: Benign endobronchial tumors are a rare entity capable of causing significant symptoms. Endobronchial tumor destruction has the potential for relieving symptoms while sparing the patient from invasive surgical resection. Although Nd:YAG laser has been successfully used, other less costly approaches such as argon plasma coagulation (APC) and electrocautery, may be effective alternatives for the bronchoscopic treatment of benign endobronchial tumors.

Achaete-scute complex homolog-1 promotes DNA repair in the lung carcinogenesis through matrix metalloproteinase-7 and O(6)-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase.

PLoS One 2012 26;7(12):e52832. Epub 2012 Dec 26.

Cell and Cancer Biology Branch, Center for Cancer Research, National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland, United States of America.

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the world. Achaete-scute complex homolog-1 (Ascl1) is a member of the basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) transcription factor family that has multiple functions in the normal and neoplastic lung such as the regulation of neuroendocrine differentiation, prevention of apoptosis and promotion of tumor-initiating cells. We now show that Ascl1 directly regulates matrix metalloproteinase-7 (MMP-7) and O(6)-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase (MGMT). Read More

[Glandular papilloma of the right main bronchus. Detection of an exon 2 mutation of the KRAS gene (c.35G>A)].

Pathologe 2013 Jul;34(4):338-42

Institut für Pathologie und Neuropathologie, Universitätsklinik Essen, Universität Duisburg-Essen, Hufelandstrasse 55, Essen, Germany.

Benign epithelial tumors of the tracheobronchial system and the lungs are exceedingly rare. These entities encompass squamous and glandular papillomas (as well as their mixed forms) and adenomas (alveolar adenoma, papillary adenoma, salivary gland-like pleomorphic and mucinous adenomas and mucinous cystadenomas). These tumors are considered to be biologically benign neoplasms; however, they can pose considerable diagnostic difficulties, especially during frozen section evaluation, as they can mimic malignant tumors and in particular they can resemble well differentiated papillary adenocarcinomas.
