Expression of Matrix Metalloproteinases 7 and 9, Desmin, Alpha-Smooth Muscle Actin and Caldesmon, in Odontogenic Keratocyst Associated with NBCCS, Recurrent and Sporadic Keratocysts.

Biomolecules 2022 Jun 2;12(6). Epub 2022 Jun 2.

Department of Medical and Surgical Sciences, University of Catania, 95123 Catania, Italy.

Nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS) associated odontogenic keratocysts (OKCs) show more aggressive behavior and it has a higher frequency of relapse than non-syndromic OKCs. Stromal myofibroblasts (MFs), characterized by α-smooth muscle actin (αSMA), desmin and caldesmon expression, and metalloproteinases (MMPs) have an essential role in the remodeling of the extracellular matrix (ECM). The aim of the study is to analyze the immunohistochemical expression of MMP-7, MMP-9, αSMA and other new markers in the study of OKCs MFs such as desmin and caldesmon in NBCCS-associated OKCs compared to recurrent and sporadic keratocysts.

Hypomorphic GINS3 variants alter DNA replication and cause Meier-Gorlin syndrome.

JCI Insight 2022 05 23;7(10). Epub 2022 May 23.

Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital Research Center, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

The eukaryotic CDC45/MCM2-7/GINS (CMG) helicase unwinds the DNA double helix during DNA replication. The GINS subcomplex is required for helicase activity and is, therefore, essential for DNA replication and cell viability. Here, we report the identification of 7 individuals from 5 unrelated families presenting with a Meier-Gorlin syndrome-like (MGS-like) phenotype associated with hypomorphic variants of GINS3, a gene not previously associated with this syndrome.

Pediatric synchronous multifocal and disseminated cerebrospinal classic medulloblastoma revealed by bilateral decreased visual acuity: a case report.

Childs Nerv Syst 2022 May 20. Epub 2022 May 20.

Department of Neurosurgery, UHC Habib Bourguiba, Sfax, Tunisia.

Medulloblastoma (MB) is a rapidly growing malignant solid tumor that arises from stem cells located in the subependymal germinal matrix or outer granular layer of the cerebellum. It represents 15 to 30% of pediatric brain tumors and less than 1% of primary brain tumors. The reason for the high incidence of MB in children compared to adults is the embryonic origin of the tumor. Read More

Development of a targeted gene panel for the diagnosis of Gorlin syndrome.

Int J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2022 Apr 15. Epub 2022 Apr 15.

Department of Biochemistry, Tokyo Dental College, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, Japan. Electronic address:

Gorlin syndrome is a rare autosomal dominant disease caused by mutations in the PTCH1, PTCH2, and SUFU genes. Each symptom of the disease has a different time point of onset, which makes early diagnosis based solely on symptoms challenging. In this study, a gene panel was developed to overcome the challenges in the diagnosis of Gorlin syndrome and allow diagnosis using a single test. Read More

Leiomyomatosis in an Infant With a SUFU Splice Site Variant: Case Report.

J Pediatr Hematol Oncol 2022 Jul 4;44(5):e914-e917. Epub 2022 Apr 4.

Division of Hematology-Oncology, Department of Pediatrics.

Heterozygous loss-of-function variants in the suppressor of fused protein gene (SUFU) can result in Gorlin syndrome, which is characterized by an increased frequency of basal cell carcinoma, medulloblastoma, odontogenic keratocysts, as well as other tumors. We describe a case of a 5-month-old female who presented with multiple intra-abdominal leiomyomata and was found to have a likely pathogenic splice site variant in the SUFU gene. This is the first reported case of leiomyomatosis secondary to a pathogenic SUFU variant in an infant and may represent an early, atypical presentation of Gorlin syndrome. Read More

Topical hedgehog inhibitors for basal cell carcinoma: how far away are we?

Expert Opin Pharmacother 2022 Apr 8;23(6):739-740. Epub 2022 Mar 8.

Department of Dermatology, Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Introduction: The standard treatment of basal cell carcinoma (BCC) consists of conventional excision or Mohs micrographic surgery. However, surgical excision is not feasible in specific cases, particularly in patients with several BCCs such as those with Gorlin syndrome or individuals receiving immunosuppression after solid-organ transplantation. Additionally, the geriatric population may not be appropriate candidates for surgery. Read More
