Thoracic Manifestations of Genitourinary Neoplasms and Treatment-related Complications.

J Thorac Imaging 2019 May;34(3):W36-W48

Department of Diagnostic Radiology, University of Kansas Medical Center, Kansas City, KS.

Genitourinary (GU) malignancies are a diverse group of common and uncommon neoplasms that may be associated with significant mortality. Metastases from GU neoplasms are frequently encountered in the chest, and virtually all thoracic structures can be involved. Although the most common imaging manifestations include hematogenous dissemination manifesting with peripheral predominant bilateral pulmonary nodules and lymphatic metastases manifesting with mediastinal and hilar lymphadenopathy, some GU malignancies exhibit unique features.

Efficacy of vertebral cryoablation and immunotherapy in a patient with metastatic renal cell carcinoma: a case report.

J Med Case Rep 2019 Apr 21;13(1):96. Epub 2019 Apr 21.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Graduate School of Medical Sciences, Kanazawa University, 13-1 Takara-machi, Kanazawa, 920-8641, Japan.

Background: In metastatic renal cell carcinoma, immunotherapy is the only treatment modality associated with a complete and durable response, but severe toxicity limits its usefulness. If toxicity could be eliminated, immunotherapy might be an effective treatment for metastatic renal cell carcinoma. We present a case of a patient with spinal metastatic renal cell carcinoma treated with total en bloc spondylectomy and reconstruction using a cryo-treated tumor-bearing bone graft; the patient demonstrated an antitumor cryoimmunological response.

COPPS, a composite score integrating pathological features, PS100 and SDHB losses, predicts the risk of metastasis and progression-free survival in pheochromocytomas/paragangliomas.

Virchows Arch 2019 Mar 13. Epub 2019 Mar 13.

Department of Pathology, CHRU de Nancy, Université de Lorraine, F-54000, Nancy, France.

Current histoprognostic parameters and prognostic scores used in paragangliomas and pheochromocytomas do not adequately predict the risk of metastastic progression and survival. Here, using a series of 147 cases of paraganglioma and pheochromocytoma, we designed and evaluated the potential of a new score, the COPPS (COmposite Pheochromocytoma/paraganglioma Prognostic Score), by taking into consideration three clinico-pathological features (including tumor size, necrosis, and vascular invasion), and the losses of PS100 and SDHB immunostain to predict the risk of metastasis. We compared also the performance of the COPPS with several presently used histoprognostic parameters in risk assessment of these tumors. Read More

Renal and adrenal masses containing fat at MRI: Proposed nomenclature by the society of abdominal radiology disease-focused panel on renal cell carcinoma.

J Magn Reson Imaging 2019 Apr 28;49(4):917-926. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

Department of Radiology, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

This article proposes a consensus nomenclature for fat-containing renal and adrenal masses at MRI to reduce variability, improve understanding, and enhance communication when describing imaging findings. The MRI appearance of "macroscopic fat" occurs due to a sufficient number of aggregated adipocytes and results in one or more of: 1) intratumoral signal intensity (SI) loss using fat-suppression techniques, or 2) chemical shift artifact of the second kind causing linear or curvilinear India-ink (etching) artifact within or at the periphery of a mass at macroscopic fat-water interfaces. "Macroscopic fat" is most commonly observed in adrenal myelolipoma and renal angiomyolipoma (AML) and only rarely encountered in other adrenal cortical tumors and renal cell carcinomas (RCC).

A Case of Stage IV Chromophobe Renal Cell Carcinoma Treated with the Oncolytic ECHO-7 Virus, Rigvir®.

Am J Case Rep 2019 Jan 12;20:48-52. Epub 2019 Jan 12.

International Virotherapy Center, Research and Development, Riga, Latvia.

BACKGROUND Renal cell carcinoma is the most commonly diagnosed primary malignant tumor of the kidney in adults, and includes the variant of chromophobe renal cell carcinoma. Despite new targeted therapies that improve progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) for early-stage renal cell carcinoma, the 5-year survival for patients with stage IV renal cell carcinoma remains below 10%, and the 50% OS is less than one year. Metastatic renal cell carcinoma can be resistant to cytotoxic chemotherapy. Read More
