Long-term follow-up of RET Y791F carriers in Denmark 1994-2017: A National Cohort Study.

J Surg Oncol 2019 May 15;119(6):687-693. Epub 2019 Jan 15.

Department of ORL, Head & Neck Surgery and Audiology, Odense University Hospital, Odense, Denmark.

Background And Objectives: Recently, a comprehensive study presented evidence that a long-disputed REarranged during Transfection (RET) variant, RET Y791F, should be classified as nonpathogenic. In spite of this, several subsequently published papers, including the revised American Thyroid Association guidelines for medullary thyroid carcinoma, refer to the variant as pathogenic. This study presents data from a unique national Danish cohort of RET Y791F carriers who have been followed by watchful waiting instead of being subjected to early thyroidectomy, to determine if any carrier shows evidence of multiple endocrine neoplasia 2A (MEN2A) at long-term follow-up.

Lichen amyloidosus as a sweat gland/duct-related disorder: resolution associated with restoration of sweating disturbance.

Br J Dermatol 2017 May 7;176(5):1308-1315. Epub 2017 Apr 7.

Dermatology, Kawasaki Medical School, General Medical Center, Okayama, Japan.

Background: Although a number of pathological processes resulting in amyloid deposition have been described in lichen amyloidosus (LA), no attention has been paid to the involvement of sweat glands/ducts in the pathogenesis of LA. According to recent studies, follicular structures are usually spared in serial histological sections of LA, and deposits of amyloid are likely to be confined to areas that display xerosis, suggesting that decreases in skin wetness by sweating disturbance seem to initiate LA.

Objectives: To investigate whether sweating disturbance could represent an early event that triggers LA, and whether resolution of LA could be induced by restoring the sweating disturbance. Read More

THE AUTOIMMUNE CONSTELLATION IN LICHEN AMYLOIDOSIS.

Rev Med Chir Soc Med Nat Iasi 2015 Oct-Dec;119(4):1045-50

Localized cutaneous amyloidosis is a rare disease among white people, being more common in South-Asia, China and South America. The disease is characterized by deposition of amyloid material in the papillary dermis without visceral involvement. Nevertheless, there is a growing list of immune-mediated disorders that have been linked to cutaneous amyloidosis. Read More

Hereditary Medullary Thyroid Cancer Genotype-Phenotype Correlation.

Recent Results Cancer Res 2015 ;204:139-56

Endokrinologische Gemeinschaftspraxis, Brückenstr 21, 69120, Heidelberg, Germany.

During the last two decades, there has been a marked expansion of our knowledge of both the basic and clinical aspects of multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 (MEN2). There are two clinically distinct types of MEN2 syndrome, termed MEN2A and MEN2B. Within MEN2A, there are four variants: (i) classical MEN2A, represented by the uniform presence of MTC and the less frequent occurrence of pheochromocytoma, or primary hyperparathyroidism, or both; (ii) MEN2A with cutaneous lichen amyloidosis; (iii) MEN2A with Hirschsprung's disease; and (iv) familial medullary thyroid carcinoma (FMTC), i.

Nodular amyloidosis derived from keratinocytes: an unusual type of primary localized cutaneous nodular amyloidosis.

Am J Dermatopathol 2015 Nov;37(11):e129-33

Departments of *Pathology, and †Orthopedics, University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester, MA.

Primary, localized cutaneous amyloidosis includes macular, lichen, and nodular (tumefactive) types in which the amyloid deposits are limited to the dermis without systemic involvement. The material in lichen and macular amyloidosis is derived from epidermal keratinocytes [keratinocyte-derived amyloid (AK)], whereas that in nodular amyloidosis is derived from immunoglobulin light-chains amyloid (AL). Primary, localized cutaneous nodular amyloidosis (PLCNA) is a form of primary, localized cutaneous amyloidosis that has been associated with a risk of progression to systemic amyloidosis. Read More

Genotype-Phenotype Correlation in Indian Patients with MEN2-Associated Pheochromocytoma and Comparison of Clinico-Pathological Attributes with Apparently Sporadic Adrenal Pheochromocytoma.

World J Surg 2016 Mar;40(3):690-6

Department of Endocrinology, Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute of Medical Sciences (SGPGIMS), Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India.

Introduction: Pheochromocytoma (PCC) manifests in up to 50% of MEN2 patients. We correlated the clinico-pathological features of MEN2-associated PCC (MEN-PCC) with RET mutations and compared them with non-MEN adrenal-PCCs.

Methods: In this retrospective single institution study on a large PCC database (n = 208, 1997-2014) 24 MEN-PCC patients with known RET mutations were reviewed. Read More

Fractional 1,550 nm Ytterbium/Erbium fiber laser in the treatment of lichen amyloidosis: clinical and histological study.

Lasers Surg Med 2015 Mar 13;47(3):222-30. Epub 2015 Mar 13.

Department of Medicine, Division of Dermatology, King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital, Bangkok, Thailand.

Background And Objective: Lichen amyloidosis is characterized by amyloid deposition in the papillary dermis, presenting clinically with intensely pruritic hyperkeratotic papules. Various treatment modalities have been used but the results are generally unsatisfactory. Several studies show that non-ablative fractional lasers can be used to treat depositional diseases due to their capability of inducing transepidermal elimination of the dermal content. Read More
