Renin Production by Juxtaglomerular Cell Tumors and Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma and the Role of Angiotensin Signaling Inhibitors.

Mayo Clin Proc 2022 Jun 23. Epub 2022 Jun 23.

Department of Urology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN. Electronic address:

Objective: To profile juxtaglomerular cell tumors (JXG) and histologic mimics by analyzing renin expression; to identify non-JXG renin-producing tumors in The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) data sets; and to define the prevalence of hypertension (HTN) and patient outcomes with angiotensin signaling inhibitor (ASI) use in tumors of interest.

Patients And Methods: Thirteen JXGs and 10 glomus tumors (GTs), a histologic mimic, were evaluated for clinicopathologic features; TCGA data were analyzed to identify non-JXG renin-overexpressing tumors. An institutional registry was queried to determine the incidence of HTN, the use of ASIs in hypertensive patients, and the impact of ASIs on outcomes including progression-free survival (PFS) in a tumor type with high renin expression (clear cell renal cell carcinoma [CC-RCC] diagnosed between January 1, 2005, and December 31, 2012).

Gastroesophageal Glomus Tumors: Clinicopathologic and Molecular Genetic Analysis of 26 Cases With a Proposal for Malignancy Criteria.

Am J Surg Pathol 2022 Jun 15. Epub 2022 Jun 15.

Department of Pathology, Brigham and Women's Hospital, and Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA.

Although criteria for malignancy have been established for glomus tumors of soft tissue, there are no accepted criteria for gastroesophageal glomus tumors, the behavior of which is considered to be unpredictable. Recently, both benign and aggressive gastroesophageal glomus tumors have been shown to harbor CARMN::NOTCH2 fusions, but, as yet, there are no described genetic features that predict clinical behavior. Here, we evaluated 26 gastroesophageal glomus tumors to investigate histologic and genetic features that might predict malignant behavior. Read More

Identifying the uncommon solitary fibrous tumour in a rare location - A case report.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2022 May 8;94:107058. Epub 2022 Apr 8.

Department of Surgery, Armidale Rural Referral Hospital, 226 Rusden street, Armidale, NSW 2350, Australia.

Introduction And Importance: The authors describe a case work up of an unusual natal cleft soft tissue tumour which eventually was concluded as solitary fibrous tumour. Solitary fibrous tumour is an uncommon fibroblastic tumour which commonly presents in pleural region and very rarely in extrapleural location such as natal cleft. Accurate identification of this tumour, considering the indeterminate nature of the tumour irrespective of the location, avoided misdiagnosis and played a vital role in follow up management of the patient.

Int J Radiat Oncol Biol Phys 2022 Mar 28. Epub 2022 Mar 28.

Department of Pathology, Section on Comparative Medicine; Department of Radiation Oncology, Wake Forest School of Medicine, Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Electronic address:

Purpose: Cancer is a severe delayed effect of acute radiation exposure. Total-body irradiation has been associated with an increased risk of solid cancer and leukemia in Japanese atomic bomb survivors, and secondary malignancies, such as sarcoma, are a serious consequence of cancer radiation therapy. The radiation late effects cohort (RLEC) of rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta) is a unique resource of more than 200 animals for studying the long-term consequences of total-body irradiation in an animal model that closely resembles humans at the genetic and physiologic levels.

Recurrent Glomus Jugulare Tumor Invading the Cerebellum on 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT.

Clin Nucl Med 2022 May;47(5):e406-e407

From the Department of Nuclear Medicine, Marmara University Pendik Training and Research Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

Abstract: Glomus tumors are rare, slow-growing extra-adrenal paragangliomas of the head and neck. Treatment and prevention of neurological deficits become more difficult as these tumors aggressively grow in size and infiltrate adjacent anatomical structures. Because glomus tumors are paragangliomas of neuroendocrine origin, 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT can be used as imaging method in the diagnosis and follow-up. Read More

Post-Embolization Excision of Glomus Tympanicum: A Case Report.

Cureus 2022 Jan 19;14(1):e21414. Epub 2022 Jan 19.

Otorhinolaryngology Head Neck Surgery, Florence Hospital, Srinagar, IND.

Glomus tympanicum is a slow-growing benign tumor that can be locally destructive, spreading along the path of least resistance. Conventionally seen as soft tissue mass in the middle ear, it is difficult to distinguish glomus tympanicum from other soft tissue masses of the tympanic cavity, especially as it hides behind an intact tympanic membrane. The primary diagnostic modalities are CT scan and MRI for evaluation of the exact anatomical extent and size of the glomus tumors. Read More

Department of Neurosurgery, Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, Los Angeles, California, USA; Department of Radiation Oncology, Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, Los Angeles, California, USA; Department of Head and Neck Surgery, Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, Los Angeles, California, USA; Office of the Patient Experience, Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, Los Angeles, California, USA; UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, Los Angeles, California, USA; Department of Neurosurgery, Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, Torrance, California, USA; Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute, Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, Torrance, California, USA. Electronic address:

Background: Glomus jugulare tumors (GJTs) are benign paragangliomas of the jugular foramen. Traditional management of these tumors involves surgical resection; however, considering the proximity of these tumors to important neurovasculature, stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) may be an appropriate noninvasive treatment to consider. The aim of this meta-analysis was to evaluate SRS as a treatment option for GJTs. Read More

Endoscopic management of subepithelial lesions including neuroendocrine neoplasms: European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) Guideline.

Endoscopy 2022 04 18;54(4):412-429. Epub 2022 Feb 18.

Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Leiden University Medical Center, Leiden, The Netherlands.

1: ESGE recommends endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) as the best tool to characterize subepithelial lesion (SEL) features (size, location, originating layer, echogenicity, shape), but EUS alone is not able to distinguish among all types of SEL.Strong recommendation, moderate quality evidence. 2: ESGE suggests providing tissue diagnosis for all SELs with features suggestive of gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) if they are of size > 20 mm, or have high risk stigmata, or require surgical resection or oncological treatment.

Paragangliomas of the head and neck.

J Oral Pathol Med 2022 Feb 18. Epub 2022 Feb 18.

Head and Neck Service, Department of Surgery, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, New York, USA.

Paragangliomas are rare neuroendocrine tumors that can be found from the skull base to the pelvis. Head and neck paragangliomas have been historically treated with surgery. However, surgical resection adds risk of injury to vascular structures and cranial nerves that can lead to morbidity such as hoarseness, dysarthria, dysphagia, or aspiration. Read More

Contemporary management of paragangliomas of the head and neck.

Laryngoscope Investig Otolaryngol 2022 Feb 26;7(1):93-107. Epub 2021 Nov 26.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck surgery Beaumont Hospital Dublin Ireland.

Head and neck paragangliomas (HNPGLs) are rare neuroendocrine tumors typically arising from nonsecretory head and neck parasympathetic ganglia. Historically thought of as aggressive tumors that warranted equally aggressive surgical intervention, evidence has emerged demonstrating that the vast majority of HNPGLs are slow growing and indolent. It is also now recognized that a large proportion of HNPGLs are hereditary with succinate dehydrogenase gene mutations typically implicated. Read More
