Department of Internal Medicine, SUNY- Downstate Health Science University, Brooklyn, New York, United States- 11203.

Anaplastic thyroid cancer (ATC) is a rare, but extremely aggressive, form of cancer with a high mortality rate. Differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC), on the other hand, including papillary and follicular subtypes, are relatively common and typically follows a more indolent course. Cases have been reported in which ATC transforms from DTC, and where DTC and ATC exist simultaneously. Read More

Department of Head and Neck Surgery, David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA, USA.

Rhabdomyomas are benign tumors composed of mesenchymal tissue and having a histologic appearance similar to skeletal muscle. Extracardiac rhabdomyomas are rare, and the majority of the adult subtype occur in the head and neck (H&N) region. Diagnosis can be challenging due to fine-needle aspiration (FNA) and core needle biopsy being suspicious for sampling error from surrounding muscle or concerning for rhabdomyosarcoma. Read More

Sclerosing polycystic adenosis (SPA) is a rare salivary gland disease. Histologically it resembles a low-grade ductal carcinoma in situ or sclerosing adenosis of the breast, characterized by lobular proliferation of ducts with apocrine cellular features surrounded by fibrosclerotic stroma. Although SPA is typically benign, recurrence is not uncommon, and cases with a malignant component have been documented. Read More

From fine-needle aspiration cytology to fluorescent in-situ hybridization in an unusual case of pharyngeal synovial sarcoma.

Diagn Cytopathol 2019 Oct 10;47(10):1067-1071. Epub 2019 Jul 10.

Pathology Unit, Department of Pathology and Diagnostics, Integrated University Hospital of Verona, Verona, Italy.

Synovial sarcoma arising in the pharynx is a rare entity, with very few cases described in literature, mainly as surgical-oriented case reports. We report the case of a healthy 20-year old man who presented with a painless right neck mass, clinically suspicious for a thyroid nodule. Ultrasound scan and fine-needle aspiration cytology failed to provide a definitive result, although suggesting a mesenchymal proliferation, in accordance with magnetic resonance imaging findings.

HPV testing through p16 immunocytochemistry in neck-mass FNA and its correlation with tissue samples.

Cancer Cytopathol 2019 07 27;127(7):458-464. Epub 2019 Jun 27.

Department of Pathology, University of Miami Hospital/Jackson Memorial Hospital, Miami, Florida.

Background: Fine-needle aspiration (FNA) of a neck mass is frequently the initial diagnostic procedure for patients with human papillomavirus-positive head and neck squamous cell carcinoma. By performing a p16 immunocytochemistry (ICC) stain on FNA material, the pathologist can help to direct the treating physician's search for the primary site and to select the proper management for the patient. There is currently no established threshold for the evaluation of p16 ICC in cytology samples. Read More

Heterogeneity in the clinical presentation, diagnosis, and treatment initiation of p16-positive oropharyngeal cancer.

Am J Otolaryngol 2019 Sep - Oct;40(5):626-630. Epub 2019 May 14.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Rush University Medical Center, 1611 W Harrison St, Chicago, IL 60612, USA. Electronic address:

Background: Human papillomavirus (HPV)-associated oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OPSCC) has a patient demographic, presentation, and clinical treatment response distinct from HPV-unassociated OPSCC. The heterogeneity in presentation and diagnosis within a patient population with HPV-positive OPSCC and its impact on times to presentation, diagnosis, and treatment have yet to be characterized.

Participants: Patients with biopsy-proven p16-positive OPSCC seen and/or treated at our institution between 2008 and 2018. Read More

Primary Supraclavicular Cystic Lymphangioma in an Adult: A Rare Presentation.

J Coll Physicians Surg Pak 2019 Jun;29(6):S11-S12

Department of General Surgery, Combined Military Hospital (CMH), Rawalpindi, Pakistan.

Cervicothoracic cystic lymphangiomas are found commonly in children less than 2 years of age, but the same are rare in adults. These form as a result of abberant development of embryonic lymph sac which is gradually filled with lymph fluid.1 They are commonly found in the head and neck region but can be present anywhere in the body.

Metastatic SMARCB1 (INI-1)-Deficient Sinonasal Carcinoma Diagnosed by Endobronchial Ultrasound-Guided Fine-Needle Aspiration (EBUS-FNA): A Potential Diagnostic Pitfall and Review of the Literature.

Acta Cytol 2019 27;63(5):431-437. Epub 2019 May 27.

Department of Laboratory Medicine, Robert J. Tomsich Pathology and Laboratory Medicine Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio, USA.

SMARCB1 (INI-1)-deficient sinonasal carcinoma is a rare entity within the subgroup of poorly differentiated sinonasal tract carcinomas. As there are only two papers describing the cytologic features of this entity, herein we describe the unique cytomorphologic features of a pulmonary metastasis of this tumor and include the differential diagnosis based on tumor location. The patient was a 53-year-old male who initially presented with sinus congestion and vision changes including left-eye proptosis and diplopia. Read More

Hyaluronic acid induced foreign body reaction mimicking neoplastic parotid cytology.

Diagn Cytopathol 2019 Sep 2;47(9):904-906. Epub 2019 May 2.

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Masses near the angle of the mandible containing extracellular matrix or mucin on cytology raise concern for various benign and malignant parotid gland neoplasms. Here a 76-year-old female with a history of cosmetic hyaluronic acid (HA) filler injections presented with a painless 6 mm left sided facial mass. Injection of hyaluronidase into the mass had failed to cause regression, raising concern for a neoplastic process. Read More

Spectrum of cytomorphological features of extranodal NK/T-cell lymphoma, nasal type.

Cytopathology 2019 07 6;30(4):393-401. Epub 2019 May 6.

Department of Medicine, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.

Objective: Extranodal natural killer/T-cell lymphoma, nasal type (ENKTL) is an aggressive extranodal lymphoma of NK-cell or T-cell lineage. Its clinical features overlap with those of several sinonasal mass lesions. While the histopathological features are well described, diagnosis is often difficult, owing to presence of extensive coagulative necrosis, so that repeated biopsies may sometimes be necessary for correct diagnosis.

A review of the propriety of thyroid ultrasound referrals and their follow-up burden.

Endocrine 2019 09 6;65(3):595-600. Epub 2019 Apr 6.

Department of Endocrinology, Connolly Hospital, Blanchardstown, Co Dublin, Ireland.

Purpose: The overdiagnosis of thyroid nodules and indolent thyroid cancers represents an increasing burden on health services, with thyroid ultrasound (US) imaging often representing the initial entry point into the thyroid nodule diagnostic pathway. The aim of this study was to retrospectively review thyroid US referrals to a single Irish hospital to determine if the stated indications for imaging had been appropriate, to review the results of the scans, and to assess the follow-up required in each case.

Methods: Patient demographics, scan indications, results, and outcomes were retrospectively reviewed for all patients undergoing thyroid ultrasound from 2012 to 2016. Read More
