Collagenous Spherulosis in Well-Differentiated Papillary Mesothelioma in a Female With Multilocular Peritoneal Inclusion Cysts.

Int J Surg Pathol 2018 Dec 6:1066896918816815. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

1 Rashid Hospital, Dubai, UAE.

Multilocular peritoneal inclusion cysts are mesothelial tumor-like lesions with or without small foci of florid papillary mesothelial hyperplasia that might simulate serous epithelial papillary lesions or well-differentiated papillary mesothelioma (WDPM) of the peritoneum. The papillary cores in papillary mesothelial hyperplasia and in WDPM display a variety of different histomorphologic features. To our knowledge, collagenous spherulosis in WDPM was not previously described or illustrated in the literature. Read More

Immunoreactivity for Sox10 in Basaloid Neoplasms of The Skin.

Appl Immunohistochem Mol Morphol 2018 Dec 7. Epub 2018 Dec 7.

Section of Dermatopathology, Division of Surgical Pathology-Cytopathology, University of Virginia Medical Center, Charlottesville, VA.

Basaloid tumors of the skin pose a diagnostic challenge to pathologists, because the differential diagnosis is broad, sometimes with subtle differentiating features.

Concomitant fibrofolliculoma and trichodiscoma on the abdomen.

Cutis 2018 Oct;102(4):E30-E32

Department of Dermatology, Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, Torrance, California, USA.

Fibrofolliculoma and trichodiscoma are adnexal tumors that arise from or around hair follicles and are two of the many characteristic features of Birt-Hogg-Dubé (BHD) syndrome. Fibrofolliculoma and other hair follicle hamartomas can be differentiated from their clinically indistinct counterparts (eg, trichodiscomas, trichoadenomas) by histologic and staining comparison. We report a rare case of a 54-year-old man who presented with a subcutaneous papule on the abdomen that was histologically proven to have features of both a solitary fibrofolliculoma and trichodiscoma.

Pulmonary metastasis of mesonephric-like adenocarcinoma arising from the uterine body: a striking mimicry of follicular thyroid carcinoma.

Histopathology 2018 Nov 24. Epub 2018 Nov 24.

Department of Diagnostic Pathology, Anjo Kosei Hospital, 28 Higashi-hirokute, Anjo-cho, Anjo, Aichi, 446-8602, Japan.

Mesonephric adenocarcinoma (MNAC) is a rare neoplasm that presumably develops from the mesonephric remnants, occurring mostly in the uterine cervix and, to a lesser extent, the vagina, uterine body, ovary, and para-adnexal soft tissues. Histologically, MNAC exhibits a variety of architectural growth patterns, even within the same tumour, including tubular, glandular, papillary, solid, and retiform, and therefore may be confused with more common carcinomas of Müllerian origin. Moreover, the tubules with luminal eosinophilic secretions, a common characteristic of MNACs, may result in consideration of thyroidal carcinoma when tumours spread beyond the pelvis. Read More

Intraoperative consultation in gynecologic pathology.

Cesk Patol 2018 ;54(3):105-118

Intraoperative consultation represents an integral part of diagnostic protocols in gynecologic oncology. It may be indicated 1) to evaluate the biologic nature of a pathologic process (distinction between nonneoplastic lesions and tumors), 2) to classify the histologic type of tumor and assess its biologic behavior (typing), 3) to confirm or rule out the metastatic origin of a tumor, 4) to determine the degree of differentiation and extent of local spread of a malignant tumor (grading and staging), 5) to detect tumor deposits in lymph nodes, 6) to examine surgical resection margins, 7) to detect products of conception in uterine curettings when ectopic pregnancy is suspected and 8) to collect native tumor tissue for ancillary studies (molecular methods, flow cytometry). A frozen section of adnexal masses is commonly requested and focused primarily on the recognition of malignant tumors, the distinction between borderline tumors and carcinomas, and the identification of a metastatic process in the ovary.

Distinct biological types of ocular adnexal sebaceous carcinoma: HPV-driven and virus-negative tumors arise through non-overlapping molecular-genetic alterations.

Clin Cancer Res 2018 Nov 12. Epub 2018 Nov 12.

Purpose: Ocular adnexal (OA) sebaceous carcinoma is an aggressive malignancy of the eyelid and ocular adnexa that frequently recurs and metastasizes, and effective therapies beyond surgical excision are lacking. There remains a critical need to define the molecular-genetic drivers of the disease to understand carcinomagenesis and progression and to devise novel treatment strategies.

Apparatus for Harvesting Tissue Microcolumns.

J Vis Exp 2018 Oct 25(140). Epub 2018 Oct 25.

Wellman Center for Photomedicine, Massachusetts General Hospital; Department of Dermatology, Harvard Medical School.

This manuscript describes the production process for a laboratory apparatus, made from off-the-shelf components, that can be used to collect microcolumns of full-thickness skin tissue. The small size of the microcolumns allows donor sites to heal quickly without causing donor site scarring, while harvesting full-thickness tissue enables the incorporation of all cellular and extracellular components of skin tissue, including those associated with deeper dermal regions and the adnexal skin structures, which have yet to be successfully reproduced using conventional tissue engineering techniques. The microcolumns can be applied directly into skin wounds to augment healing, or they can be used as the autologous cell/tissue source for other tissue engineering approaches. Read More
