Observations on the histopathologic diagnosis of microinvasive carcinoma of the breast.

Anat Pathol 1998 ;3:209-32

Department of Pathology, New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center, New York, USA.

Our histopathologic criteria for diagnosing microinvasive carcinoma of the breast may be enunciated as follows: (1) cytologically malignant cells in the stroma associated with in situ carcinoma, (2) absence of basement membrane and myoepithelial cells around the invasive cells, (3) frequent accompanying stromal alterations in the form of myxomatous change and loosening of connective tissue, and (4) the frequent presence of an inflammatory cell infiltrate composed of lymphocytes and plasma cells. Most or all of these four features are present in cases of ductal microinvasive carcinoma of the breast, but the lobular type is not likely to be accompanied by stromal changes or a lymphoplasmacytic cell infiltrate. The minimum information regarding microinvasive carcinoma of the breast that should be conveyed in the final pathology report includes size as measured by the ocular micrometer or a statement that microinvasion refers to a lesion smaller than 1 mm, the number of foci of invasion, and the spatial distribution of the invasive foci.

Pseudomyxoma peritonei: new concepts in diagnosis, origin, nomenclature, and relationship to mucinous borderline (low malignant potential) tumors of the ovary.

Anat Pathol 1997 ;2:197-226

Department of Pathology, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland, USA.

For many years the clinical syndrome of PMP has been enigmatic. Based on recent studies reevaluating the condition, tumors previously designated PMP can now be viewed as two pathologically and prognostically distinct disease processes. Disseminated peritoneal adenomucinosis is characterized by copious mucinous ascites (the classical clinical syndrome of PMP) and histologically bland peritoneal mucinous tumors. Read More

Malignant mesothelioma in women.

Anat Pathol 1997 ;2:147-63

Durham VA and Duke University Medical Centers, North Carolina, USA.

About 8% of our cases of mesothelioma occur in women, with a median age of 59 years. Our percentage is lower than other series reported in the literature because of the large number of occupationally exposed men referred to our laboratory. Tumor arose in the pleura in 86% of the women in our study, and the majority were epithelial. Read More

Benign mimics of prostatic adenocarcinoma on needle biopsy.

Anat Pathol 1997 ;2:111-34

Department of Pathology and Bone and Joint Center, Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit, Michigan, USA.

Various benign processes can mimic prostatic adenocarcinoma on needle biopsy. These processes include glandular lesions such as adenosis, atrophy, VMGH, and BCH; inflammatory conditions such as acute and chronic or granulomatous prostatitis; and the effects of therapy such as external beam radiation or androgen deprivation. Normal benign prostate tissues including seminal vesicles, paraganglia, and ganglion cells may also be confused histologically with prostatic adenocarcinoma in needle biopsy specimens. Read More

Uterine pathology in tamoxifen-treated patients with breast cancer.

Authors:
M L Carcangiu

Anat Pathol 1997 ;2:53-70

Department of Pathology Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, Connecticut, USA.

In the last 20 years, tamoxifen has become the drug of choice in the treatment of breast carcinoma in both advanced and early stages. Furthermore, the ability of tamoxifen to prevent mammary carcinoma in the contralateral breast has prompted the creation of trials that include healthy patients with an increased risk of developing breast cancer with the purpose of verifying the drug's prophylactic action. As a consequence, a large number of healthy women or women with a long life expectancy are being treated with tamoxifen for long periods, making it crucial to study the possible long-term effects associated with this therapy.

Prognostic indicators in breast cancer and who needs them.

D L Page

Vanderbilt University Medical Center Nashville, Tennessee, USA.

In the prognosis of breast cancer, pathologists are facing a time of consolidation. Widely accepted guidelines have been gained only recently, with expectations that further developments are soon to come. Prognostic data influence systemic treatment decisions that are largely dependent on stage criteria of lymph nodes and tumor size as well as menopausal status. Read More

Nomenclature of chronic hepatitis: the new look.

Authors:
L Ferrell

Anat Pathol 1997 ;2:21-33

University of California, San Francisco, USA.

The new recommendations for nomenclature, grading, and staging of chronic hepatitis and related biliary and other disorders are attempts to standardize the criteria and simplify the terminology used in making these diagnoses. It is hoped that an emphasis on the etiology as part of the diagnosis will eliminate the previous association with poor prognosis that was implied with a diagnosis of CAH. The inclusion of a system of grading and staging, whether it is numerical or descriptive, simple or complex, matters less than the need for it to communicate important information about the degree of necroinflammatory activity (grade) and the extent of the disease (stage of fibrosis) that are likely factors of prognostic and therapeutic significance.
