MEN2-related pheochromocytoma: current state of knowledge, specific characteristics in MEN2B, and perspectives.

Endocrine 2020 May 10. Epub 2020 May 10.

Department of Endocrinology, Aix-Marseille University, INSERM U1251, Endo-ERN Reference Center for Rare Genetic Tumor Syndromes, Assistance Publique-Hopitaux de Marseille, Marseille, France.

Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 (MEN2) is a rare hereditary syndrome due to mutations of the proto-oncogene REarranged during Transfection (RET), defined by the association of medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) in almost 100% cases, and pheochromocytoma in roughly 50% (primary hyperparathyroidism can be seen in 10-20% of patients with MEN2A). Early thyroidectomy and the efficacy of novel tyrosine kinase inhibitors modified the natural history of MTC, with possibilities of cure or long-term control. The second main compound, pheochromocytoma, is reported with a variable penetrance, from 10 to 80% cases, depending on the mutation of RET. Read More

Recurrent hepatocellular carcinoma and non-classic adreno-genital syndrome.

Eur Rev Med Pharmacol Sci 2020 Apr;24(8):4172-4179

Dipartimento di Medicina e Chirurgia Traslazionale, Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Rome, Italy.

Objective: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most common fatal cancer in the world and androgens are among the possible etiological factors. Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) is a group of inherited diseases caused by enzyme failure in the steroid biosynthesis of the adrenal cortex, resulting in an augmented 17-hydroxyprogesterone, androstenedione and testosterone production. While the occurrence of testicular adrenal rest tumors and adrenocortical tumors in congenital adrenal hyperplasia is well described in the literature, no data on HCC occurrence are available.

A rare case of oncocytic adrenocortical carcinoma clinically presented as an incidentaloma.

Endocr J 2020 Apr 4. Epub 2020 Apr 4.

Department of General Medicine, Okayama University Graduate School of Medicine, Dentistry and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Okayama 700-8558, Japan.

Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare aggressive tumor originating from adrenocortical parenchymal cells and its incidence is approximately 1 per million population per year. An oncocytic ACC is a recently identified entity among the several known histopathological variants of ACC, which is characterized by oncocytic cells, and only a few cases in the available literature have reported this tumor. In contrast to conventional ACCs, oncocytic ACCs usually manifest as solitary lesions presenting in adults without any sex predilection. Read More

Active steroid hormone synthesis renders adrenocortical cells highly susceptible to type II ferroptosis induction.

Cell Death Dis 2020 Mar 17;11(3):192. Epub 2020 Mar 17.

Department of Internal Medicine I, Division of Endocrinology and Diabetes, University Hospital, University of Würzburg, Würzburg, Germany.

Conditions of impaired adrenal function and tissue destruction, such as in Addison's disease, and treatment resistance of adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) necessitate improved understanding of the pathophysiology of adrenal cell death. Due to relevant oxidative processes in the adrenal cortex, our study investigated the role of ferroptosis, an iron-dependent cell death mechanism and found high adrenocortical expression of glutathione peroxidase 4 (GPX4) and long-chain-fatty-acid CoA ligase 4 (ACSL4) genes, key factors in the initiation of ferroptosis. By applying MALDI mass spectrometry imaging to normal and neoplastic adrenocortical tissue, we detected high abundance of arachidonic and adrenic acid, two long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids which undergo peroxidation during ferroptosis.

Antineoplastic Effect of a Combined Mitotane Treatment/Ionizing Radiation in Adrenocortical Carcinoma: A Preclinical Study.

Cancers (Basel) 2019 Nov 9;11(11). Epub 2019 Nov 9.

Endocrinology, Department of Clinical and Molecular Medicine, Sant'Andrea Hospital, Sapienza University of Rome, Rome 00189, Italy.

Mitotane (MTT) is an adrenolytic drug used in adjuvant and advanced treatments of adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC). Ionizing radiation (IR) is also used in adrenal cancer treatment, even though its biological action remains unknown. To provide a reliable in vivo preclinical model of ACC, we used mouse xenografts bearing human ACC to test the effects of MTT and IR alone and in combination. Read More

Imaging and implications of tumor thrombus in abdominal malignancies: reviewing the basics.

Abdom Radiol (NY) 2020 04;45(4):1057-1068

Joint Department of Medical Imaging, University Health Network, Mount Sinai Hospital and Women's College Hospital, University of Toronto, Toronto, ON, Canada.

Extension of tumor tissue within a vein is a recognized prognostic factor in abdominal malignancy because of its influence on tumor staging and selection of therapeutic management. With the advent of newer surgical techniques, and variable treatment strategies, imaging plays a crucial role in categorizing patients according to the tumor resectability and vascular reconstruction techniques during surgery. Understanding the clinical impact of tumor thrombus increases the awareness of the radiologist about the key findings in tumor staging and decision-making of surgical approach. Read More

Radiothérapie-oncologie, Faculté de Médecine et de Pharmacie, Université Cadi Ayyad, Marrakech, Maroc.

Brain radionecrosis is a rare but life-threatening complication of external-beam radiotherapy for ENT cancers, in particular of the nasopharynx, and for brain tumors. Very few studies were conducted on this complication in the African population as well as in the Maghreb population. Therefore our study aims to describe the demographic, clinical, paraclinical, therapeutic and evolutionary features of cerebral radionecrosis in the Department of Neurology at the Mohammed V Military Teaching Hospital in Rabat over a period of 18 years (2000-2017).
