Is melanocyte density our last hope? Comparison of histologic features of photodamaged skin and melanoma in situ after staged surgical excision with concurrent scouting biopsies.

J Cutan Pathol 2019 Aug 25;46(8):555-562. Epub 2019 Apr 25.

Division of Dermatology, Department of Medicine, Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine, Maywood, Illinois.

Differentiating melanocytic hyperplasia (MH) on photodamaged skin from junctional lentiginous melanocytic proliferations (JLMP), early evolving melanoma in situ (MIS), or the periphery of a lesion of MIS on staged excision can be challenging. Although previous cross-sectional studies have elucidated important criteria for distinguishing MH on photodamaged skin from more concerning lesions, this study highlights a technique to treat JLMP and MIS with staged mapped excision and baseline scouting biopsies of adjacent nonlesional photodamaged skin to assist in determination of surgical margin clearance. Additionally, we compare the lesional and photodamaged control biopsies from the same patient to evaluate relevant histologic criteria that may be used to distinguish MH in photodamaged skin from JLMP/MIS, while minimizing confounding factors.

Activins are dimeric glycoproteins belonging to the transforming growth factor beta superfamily and resulting from the assembly of two beta subunits, which may also be combined with alpha subunits to form inhibins. Activins were discovered in 1986 following the isolation of inhibins from porcine follicular fluid, and were characterized as ovarian hormones that stimulate follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) release by the pituitary gland. In particular, activin A was shown to be the isoform of greater physiological importance in humans. Read More

The search for preoperative biomarkers for thyroid carcinoma: application of the thyroid circadian clock properties.

Biomark Med 2017 Mar 16;11(3):285-293. Epub 2017 Feb 16.

Department of Cell Physiology & Metabolism, Faculty of Medicine, University of Geneva, Geneva, Switzerland.

Accumulating evidence suggests that alterations in the molecular clocks underlying the circadian time-keeping system might be connected to changes in cell cycle, resulting in oncogenic transformation. The hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis is driven by a circadian clock at several levels, with an endocrine feedback loop regulating thyroid-stimulating hormone. Changes in the expression levels of circadian and cell cycle markers may correlate with clinic-pathological characteristics in differentiated follicular thyroid carcinomas. Read More

Keratoacanthoma of the conjunctiva - case report and review of the literature.

Rom J Morphol Embryol 2017 ;58(4):1605-1609

Discipline of Histology, Department of Morphological Sciences, "Iuliu Hatieganu" University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Cluj-Napoca, Romania;

Introduction: Keratoacanthoma (KA) is a relatively common, benign, rapidly growing and self-limiting squamous proliferation, which appears most frequently on the sun-exposed skin. The nature of KA and its relationship to squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) still represent one of the major debates in dermatopathology, as it is the truthfulness of such a diagnosis outside the skin. However, the tumor is now known to originate from the pilosebaceous units of the skin or from ectopic sebaceous glands of squamous mucous membranes, and to differentiate onto follicular isthmus÷infundibulum-like epithelium.

Department of Dermatology, Goztepe Research and Training Hospital, Istanbul Medeniyet University, Istanbul, Turkey.

Inverted follicular keratosis is a rare benign tumor of the follicular infundibulum characterized by exo-endophytic growing. It is thought to be a rare variant of the seborrheic keratosis. The diagnosis of inverted follicular keratosis is generally established histopathologically because clinical differentiation from other lesions is difficult. Read More

Benign follicular tumors.

An Bras Dermatol 2015 Nov-Dec;90(6):780-96; quiz 797-8

Centro Hospitalar Universitário de Coimbra, Coimbra, Portugal.

Benign follicular tumors comprise a large and heterogeneous group of neoplasms that share a common histogenesis and display morphological features resembling one or several portions of the normal hair follicle, or recapitulate part of its embryological development. Most cases present it as clinically nondescript single lesions and essentially of dermatological relevance. Occasionally, however, these lesions be multiple and represent a cutaneous marker of complex syndromes associated with an increased risk of visceral neoplasms. Read More

Pseudocarcinomatous Hyperplasia Hiding Lymphomatoid Papulosis: A "Low-Power View" Pitfall.

Int J Surg Pathol 2016 May 27;24(3):232-6. Epub 2015 Dec 27.

Arcispedale Santa Maria Nuova-IRCCS, Reggio Emilia, Italy

Pseudocarcinomatous hyperplasia (PCH) is a reactive proliferation of the epidermis that can be associated with many inflammatory and neoplastic conditions. Histologically, it is characterized by irregular strands of epidermis, usually at the level of the follicular infundibulum, projecting downward into the dermis. The differentiation between a well-differentiated squamous cell carcinoma and PCH can be particularly challenging when the biopsy is superficial and the causing lesion is dermal-based. Read More

A Novel Letrozole Model Recapitulates Both the Reproductive and Metabolic Phenotypes of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome in Female Mice.

Biol Reprod 2015 Sep 22;93(3):69. Epub 2015 Jul 22.

Department of Reproductive Medicine and Center for Reproductive Science and Medicine, University of California San Diego, La Jolla, California.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) pathophysiology is poorly understood, due partly to lack of PCOS animal models fully recapitulating this complex disorder. Recently, a PCOS rat model using letrozole (LET), a nonsteroidal aromatase inhibitor, mimicked multiple PCOS phenotypes, including metabolic features absent in other models. Given the advantages of using genetic and transgenic mouse models, we investigated whether LET produces a similar PCOS phenotype in mice. Read More

Trichoblastoma, syringocystadenoma papilliferum, desmoplastic trichilemmoma and tumor of the follicular infundibulum with signet-ring cells, all arising in nevus sebaceus.

J Cutan Pathol 2015 Sep 12;42(9):645-51. Epub 2015 May 12.

Department of Dermatology, University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA, USA.

Herein, we describe a 63-year-old male with multiple tumors arising within a nevus sebaceus on the posterior scalp. On histopathologic examination, four distinct tumors were identified: trichoblastoma, syringocystadenoma papilliferum, desmoplastic trichilemmoma and tumor of the follicular infundibulum (TFI). Within the TFI component of the nevus sebaceus, there was intracytoplasmic accumulation of eosinophilic keratin, as shown on pancytokeratin-stained sections, imparting a signet-ring appearance to the cells.

Mode of action and human relevance of pronamide-induced rat thyroid tumors.

Regul Toxicol Pharmacol 2015 Apr 20;71(3):541-51. Epub 2015 Feb 20.

Dow AgroSciences, LLC, Indianapolis, IN 46268, USA.

Pronamide, a selective, systemic, pre- and post-emergence herbicide, caused an increased incidence of thyroid follicular cell adenomas in a rat carcinogenicity study. Thyroid tumors, as well as liver and pituitary changes, were limited only to the high-dose group. The evidence for and against specific potential modes of action (MoAs) for rat thyroid follicular cell adenomas and their relevance to humans is discussed. Read More

Thyroid tumor formation in the male mouse induced by fluopyram is mediated by activation of hepatic CAR/PXR nuclear receptors.

Regul Toxicol Pharmacol 2014 Dec 17;70(3):673-80. Epub 2014 Oct 17.

Bayer SAS, Bayer CropScience, 355 rue Dostoïevski, CS 90153, 06906 Sophia Antipolis, France.

Fluopyram, a broad spectrum fungicide, caused an increased incidence of thyroid follicular cell (TFC) adenomas in males at the highest dose evaluated (750ppm equating to 105mg/kg/day) in the mouse oncogenicity study. A series of short-term mechanistic studies were conducted in the male mouse to characterize the mode of action (MOA) for the thyroid tumor formation and to determine if No Observed Effect Levels (NOELs) exist for each key event identified. The proposed MOA consists of an initial effect on the liver by activating the constitutive androstane (Car) and pregnane X (Pxr) nuclear receptors causing increased elimination of thyroid hormones followed by an increased secretion of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH).

Department of Medical Specialties, Faculty of Medicine, University of Geneva, Geneva, Switzerland Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes, Hypertension and Nutrition, University Hospital of Geneva, Geneva, Switzerland

The circadian clock represents an anticipatory mechanism, well preserved in evolution. It has a critical impact on most aspects of the physiology of light-sensitive organisms. These rhythmic processes are governed by environmental cues (fluctuations in light intensity and temperature), an internal circadian timing system, and interactions between this timekeeping system and environmental signals.

Tumor of follicular infundibulum with unique features.

An Bras Dermatol 2014 Nov-Dec;89(6):964-6

Universidade de Santo Amaro, Santo Amaro, SP, Brazil.

Tumor of the follicular infundibulum is a rare benign cutaneous adnexal neoplasm with variable clinical presentation. In most cases the diagnosis is made with the help of histopathology, due to lack of a characteristic clinical presentation. The most common form is a solitary lesion, but it can be multiple or eruptive, then called infundibulomatose. Read More

Bifurcation analysis of a menstrual cycle model reveals multiple mechanisms linking testosterone and classical PCOS.

J Theor Biol 2014 Nov 28;361:31-40. Epub 2014 Jul 28.

Department of Mathematics, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC 27695-8205, United States; Biomathematics Program, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC 27695, United States. Electronic address:

A system of 16 differential equations is described which models hormonal regulation of the menstrual cycle focusing on the effects of the androgen testosterone (T) on follicular development and on the synthesis of luteinizing hormone (LH) in the pituitary. Model simulations indicate two stable menstrual cycles - one cycle fitting data in the literature for normal women and the other cycle being anovulatory because of no LH surge. Bifurcations with respect to sensitive model parameters illustrate various characteristics of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), a leading cause of female infertility. Read More

Is Tumor of Follicular Infundibulum a Reaction to Dermal Scarring?

Am J Dermatopathol 2015 Jul;37(7):535-8

*Department of Pathology, Wake Forest School of Medicine, Winston-Salem, NC; †Department of Pathology, King Fahad University Hospital, University of Dammam, Dammam, Saudi Arabia; and ‡Department of Dermatology, Wake Forest School of Medicine, Winston-Salem, NC.

Tumor of follicular infundibulum (TFI) is currently believed to be a benign epithelial neoplasm with follicular differentiation. It has been suggested that TFI is associated with dermal scarring, but further investigation is needed to confirm this correlation. To approach this question, a retrospective study was presented, a total of 67 cases (64 lesions) were found in a search covering cases over a 10-year period. Read More
