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

Cytopathology 2019 Apr 12. Epub 2019 Apr 12.

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

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 histopathologic 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 Apr 6. 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

Prognostic impact of incisional or excisional biopsy of cervical lymph node metastases of solid tumors.

Jpn J Clin Oncol 2018 Jun;48(6):529-534

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Kobe City Medical Center General Hospital, Kobe, Japan.

Objectives: In performing an open biopsy of a neck mass, an incisional biopsy may increase the risk of cancer cell seeding and dissemination that, ultimately, worsens a patient's survival. The aim of this study was to compare the impact of incisional and excisional biopsies of cervical lymph node metastases of solid tumors on patients' survival.

Methods: A retrospective review was made of patients with cervical metastases of solid tumors who underwent an open biopsy for a diagnosis between 2005 and 2015. Read More

Giant Pilomatricoma Arising as a Rapidly Growing Vascularized Tumor in a Child.

Am J Dermatopathol 2018 Sep;40(9):690-693

Department of Vascular Medicine, Rangueil Hospital, Toulouse University, Toulouse, France.

In this observation, we report an unusual presentation of a pilomatricoma in an 8-year-old girl who was initially referred to the department of vascular medicine for diagnosis and care of a suspected mixed lymphatic venous malformation. The lesion on her left shoulder presented as a giant bluish-purple red solitary mass, painful and rapidly growing, measuring 7 cm in anteroposterior diameter. This mass did not present the typical characteristics of a lymphatic venous malformation but exhibited warning signs of malignancy on clinical examination and imaging. Read More

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Feb;97(7):e9927

Department of Radiation Oncology, Sichuan Cancer Hospital and Research Institute.

Rationale: Primary undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma is extremely rare in the thyroid, and can be easily misdiagnosed as anaplastic thyroid cancer.

Patient Concerns: We present a case of a 71-year-old woman who presented with a rapidly growing painless mass in the neck.

Diagnoses-interventions-outcomes: Computed tomography showed a large hypointense mass with hyperdense areas involving whole of the right lobe of thyroid gland and fine-needle aspiration cytology found a few atypical cells. Read More

Department of Otolaryngology, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, NY, United States.

Importance: Mucinous eccrine carcinoma is a rare entity that most commonly affects the head and neck. Due to its low frequency of occurrence, review of its etiology, histopathology, and treatment strategies is beneficial to all clinicians who may encounter similar appearing masses.

Head and Neck Surgical Oncology Choosing Wisely Campaign: imaging for patients with hoarseness, fine needle aspiration for neck mass, and ultrasound for odynophagia.

J Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2018 Jan 8;47(1). Epub 2018 Jan 8.

Division of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery, Dalhousie University, Halifax, NS, Canada.

Choosing Wisely Canada, is a campaign designed to raise awareness regarding inappropriate or unnecessary tests and treatments. The Canadian Society of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery and the Canadian Association of Head and Neck Surgical Oncologists developed a Choosing Wisely Canada list to help promote high quality care for patients presenting with disorders of the head and neck: (1) Don't order imaging - computer tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) - as the initial investigation for patients presenting with a chief complaint of hoarseness, (2) Don't perform an open biopsy or excision of a neck mass without having first considered a fine needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy and, (3) Don't order neck ultrasound to investigate odynophagia (discomfort or pain with swallowing) or globus sensation.

Cytomorphological Findings of Follicular Dendritic Cell Sarcoma on Fine-Needle Aspiration Cytology.

Acta Cytol 2018 23;62(2):145-150. Epub 2017 Dec 23.

Department of Pathology, Chirayu Medical College and Hospital, Bhopal, India.

Background: Follicular dendritic cell sarcoma (FDCS) is a rare neoplasm arising from follicular dendritic cells of germinal centers. The most common site of origin is lymph nodes and it may mimic a variety of tumors at that location, including carcinomas and sarcomas. Diagnosis is frequently missed on cytology as there are very few case reports describing the cytological characteristics of the lesion. Read More

The extent of surgery for benign parotid pathology and its influence on complications: A prospective cohort analysis.

Am J Otolaryngol 2018 Mar - Apr;39(2):162-166. Epub 2017 Nov 29.

Department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Whangarei Base Hospital, Northland, New Zealand.

Background: The surgical management of benign parotid tumors is aimed at complete extirpation of the mass with preservation of facial nerve function. There is a relative paucity of literature pertaining to complications after benign parotid surgery and related risk factors. We aim to critically review the outcomes following treatment of benign parotid pathology when surgery entailed either complete superficial parotidectomy (CSP), partial superficial parotidectomy (PSP) or extracapsular dissection (ECD).
