Microsecretory Adenocarcinoma of Salivary Glands: An Expanded Series of 24 Cases.

Head Neck Pathol 2021 May 12. Epub 2021 May 12.

Department of Pathology, UT Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX, USA.

Microsecretory adenocarcinoma (MSA) is a recently described salivary gland tumor with a characteristic histologic and immunophenotypic profile and recurrent MEF2C-SS18 fusions. Because only six cases of MSA have been published, its complete clinicopathologic spectrum is unclear, and its biologic behavior has not been documented. Here, we present an updated and expanded experience of 24 MSA cases. Read More

Genes and pathways monotonically dysregulated during progression from normal through leukoplakia to gingivo-buccal oral cancer.

NPJ Genom Med 2021 May 12;6(1):32. Epub 2021 May 12.

National Institute of Biomedical Genomics, Kalyani, India.

Oral squamous cell carcinoma of the gingivo-buccal region (OSCC-GB) accounts for the highest cancer morbidity and mortality among men in India. It has been observed that about one-third of individuals with oral leukoplakia, a dysplastic precancerous lesion in the oral cavity, progress to oral cancer. We aimed to identify systematic transcriptomic changes as a normal tissue in the oral cavity progresses to frank OSCC-GB. Read More

Distribution and determinants of submandibular gland involvement in oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma.

Oral Oncol 2021 Apr 30;118:105316. Epub 2021 Apr 30.

Department of Surgical Oncology, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Rishikesh, India. Electronic address:

Introduction: Though the submandibular gland (SMG) is routinely sacrificed for several reasons during neck dissection in patients undergoing curative surgery for oral cavity cancers, it might be an innocent bystander and should be considered for preservation. This study aimed to identify the incidence, different patterns of invasion, and risk factors of SMG involvement in oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma (SCC).

Methods: This was a retrospective study of the patients who underwent upfront curative surgery for a biopsy-proven oral cavity SCC. Read More

Pathol Int 2021 Apr 13. Epub 2021 Apr 13.

Department of Diagnostic Pathology, Kyoto University Hospital, Kyoto, Japan.

Secretory carcinoma or mammary analog secretory carcinoma is an entity of salivary gland carcinoma that is characterized by the ETV6-NTRK3 gene fusion. Although it is generally considered to be a low-grade malignancy, some cases of secretory carcinoma with high-grade transformation (SCHG) have been reported. We herein describe a case of SCHG composed almost exclusively of the high-grade component. Read More

Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 2020 Dec;28(7):238-239

Georgia Kyriakou, MD, MsC, cPhD., Department of Dermatology, University General Hospital of Patras, University General Hospital of Patras, Rion 265 04, Greece;

A 45-year-old HIV-negative Caucasian man with no reported past medical history was referred to our Department with a large (7 cm in diameter) oozing nodule on the occipital region of the scalp with spontaneous periodical bloody or purulent discharge. The lesion had appeared over a period of six months, had an irregular color, non-specific dermoscopic features, and resembled squamous cell carcinoma. The physical examination revealed three more atypical melanocytic lesions (on the abdomen, back, and buccal mucosa), and multiple swollen occipital, postauricular, as well as superficial and deep cervical lymph nodes.

The application of chimeric deep circumflex iliac artery perforator flap for oromandibular reconstruction: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2021 Apr;100(14):e25458

Department of Head and Neck Cancer Center.

Rationale: The free fibular flap is considered the gold standard, particularly for a mandibular defect combined with a significant soft tissue defect. However, the fibular flap has the disadvantages of a lack of height for postoperative dental restoration and donor site skin graft if the skin paddle is wider than 5 cm. The larger bone and soft tissue defects tend to be reconstructed using either a scapula or a combination of iliac artery and radial free flap. Read More

Basal cell carcinoma and dermal nevi of the face: comparison of localization and dermatoscopic features.

Int J Dermatol 2021 Apr 7. Epub 2021 Apr 7.

Dermatology Clinic, Maggiore Hospital of Trieste, Trieste, Italy.

Background: Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and dermal nevi located on the face can easily be confused on clinical examination. Little is known about the different preferential localizations of these entities, and a systematic analysis of dermatoscopic features for differential diagnosis is lacking.

Methods: Clinical and dermatoscopic images of BCCs and dermal nevi were retrospectively evaluated to study their relation to various face anatomical areas, BCC histotype, classic and nonclassic dermatoscopic BCC criteria, as well as typical dermatoscopic criteria for dermal nevi. Read More

Fabricating Flaps in the Forearm Prior to Tracheal Reconstruction.

Indian J Plast Surg 2021 Jan 30;54(1):53-57. Epub 2020 Nov 30.

Department of Head and Neck Surgery, TATA Medical Center, Kolkata, West Bengal, India.

 The process of reconstruction of tracheal defects is complex and still not optimum. Options range from using staged reconstructions, combining flaps with autologous or alloplastic implants, as well as use of tissue-engineered constructs combined with vascularized tissues which are lined with cell cultures. Staged reconstructions using prelaminated epithelium, and prefabricated flaps, help in reconstruction of this complex structure. Read More

Multiple tumour recurrence in oral, head and neck cancer: Characterising the patient journey.

J Oral Pathol Med 2021 Apr 2. Epub 2021 Apr 2.

University of Hong Kong, Hong kong, China.

Background: Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is the 15th most common cause of cancer-related mortality worldwide and approximately one oral cancer-related death occurs for every two new diagnoses. Death-due-to-disease is usually ascribed to inoperable primary tumours, treatment complications, second primary tumours arising due to field cancerization, or locoregional recurrence and distant metastases.

Methods: A retrospective review of OSCC patients treated over a 19-year period, betweenOctober 1 , 2000 and October 1 , 2019. Read More

Internal Medicine, Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, Newark, USA.

Herpes simplex virus (HSV) and cytomegalovirus (CMV) infections are commonly seen in immunocompromised patients, particularly in patients with HIV. However, fulminant CMV infection and concurrent infection with HSV and CMV in non-HIV patients are quite rare. We present the case of a 72-year-old HIV-negative man with a history of oropharyngeal carcinoma in remission and recent treatment of immune thrombocytopenic purpura with high-dose steroids who was transferred from an outside hospital for Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) evaluation of a non-healing buccal ulcer.

The Role of Increased Connective Tissue Growth Factor in the Pathogenesis of Oral Submucous Fibrosis and its Malignant Transformation-An Immunohistochemical Study.

Head Neck Pathol 2021 Feb 5. Epub 2021 Feb 5.

Department of Oral Pathology, Nair Hospital Dental College, Mumbai, 400008, India.

Connective tissue growth factor (CTGF), a matricellular protein of the CCN family of extracellular matrix-associated heparin-binding proteins, is highly expressed in various organ fibrosis and several malignant tumors. Although a few studies have been conducted using CTGF in oral submucous fibrosis (OSF) and oral squamous cell carcinoma, no study has demonstrated its relation with various stages of OSF and its malignant transformation. The present study investigated the possible role of CTGF in the pathogenesis of OSF and its malignant transformation by using immunohistochemistry. Read More
