Diagnosis and Management of Cervical Thymic Cysts in Children.

Cureus 2017 Jan 11;9(1):e973. Epub 2017 Jan 11.

Department of Pediatric Otolaryngology, Children's Hospital of UPMC.

We present the case of a 10-year-old boy with the sudden onset of a large, painless left neck mass. Findings on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and fine needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy suggest a cystic lesion, most likely of thymic origin. Cervical thymic cysts are a rare form of cervical mass, which are easily overlooked in the differential diagnosis of children presenting with painless neck masses. Read More

Toward optical guidance during endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspirations of pancreatic masses using single fiber reflectance spectroscopy: a feasibility study.

J Biomed Opt 2017 02;22(2):24001

Leiden University Medical Center, Department of Surgery, Leiden, The Netherlands.

Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspirations (EUS-FNA) of pancreatic masses suffer from sample errors and low-negative predictive values. Fiber-optic spectroscopy in the visible to near-infrared wavelength spectrum can noninvasively extract physiological parameters from tissue and has the potential to guide the sampling process and reduce sample errors. We assessed the feasibility of single fiber (SF) reflectance spectroscopy measurements during EUS-FNA of pancreatic masses and its ability to distinguish benign from malignant pancreatic tissue.

Use of core biopsy in diagnosing cervical lymphadenopathy: a viable alternative to surgical excisional biopsy of lymph nodes?

Ann R Coll Surg Engl 2017 Mar 5;99(3):242-244. Epub 2016 Dec 5.

University Hospital Lewisham , London , UK.

OBJECTIVES Lymphoma often presents with a neck mass and while fine-needle aspiration cytology may be suggestive, tissue biopsy is required for reliable diagnosis and classification of a lymphoma that is sufficient to deliver the correct treatment for the patient. Traditionally, excisional biopsy of a lymph node has been the standard method of tissue sampling, providing ample tissue for assessment. However, this requires theatre time, and preceding fine-needle aspiration cytology, which may incur a delay. Read More

Human papillomavirus DNA detection in fine-needle aspirates as indicator of human papillomavirus-positive oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma: A prospective study.

Head Neck 2017 03 29;39(3):419-426. Epub 2016 Nov 29.

Department of Oncology - Pathology, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden.

Background: Human papillomavirus (HPV)-positive oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) has a better outcome than most head neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCCs) and an HPV-positive lymph node metastasis likely has an HPV-positive oropharyngeal SCC origin. Determining HPV-status in cervical lymph nodes by fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) may be useful for diagnosis.

Methods: FNACs from 66 patients with neck masses were prospectively examined for HPV DNA and HPV16 mRNA by a polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based assay, and the data correlated to diagnosis and HPV-status obtained from histopathological specimens. Read More

Department of Pathology and Cytology, Dr. Josip Bencevic General Hospital, Slavonski Brod, Croatia.

Parathyroid cysts (PCs) account for less than 1% of all parathyroid lesions and are most commonly located along thyroid lobes, rarely at ectopic sites. PCs are important because they can pose a differential diagnostic challenge against other cystic formations of the neck. PCs can be functional (elevated serum parathyroid hormone level) and nonfunctional. Read More
