Trastuzumab-Based Combination Chemotherapy in Patients with Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor-2-Positive Metastatic Carcinoma ex Pleomorphic Adenoma.

Case Rep Oncol 2018 Sep-Dec;11(3):835-841. Epub 2018 Dec 11.

Department of Medical Oncology, Sapporo Medical University, Sapporo, Japan.

Background: Carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma (CXPA) is a rare histologic subtype of lacrimal gland and submandibular gland cancer. Currently, there is no standard treatment for metastatic CXPA, although some case reports have explored the role of targeted agents in chemotherapy. A few histopathologic analyses have shown that some of these tumors overexpress human epidermal growth factor receptor-2 (HER2), suggesting a potential role for HER2-based therapy. Read More

Urothelial bladder carcinoma metastasizing to the eye: A systematic review and case report.

Oncol Lett 2019 Jan 15;17(1):462-467. Epub 2018 Oct 15.

Department of Diagnostics and Public Health-Section of Pathology, University and Hospital Trust of Verona, I-37134 Verona, Italy.

The eye is a rare site for disseminated malignancies; nevertheless, several tumors may metastasize to ocular structures. Few cases of urothelial and bladder cancer with eye involvement have been described in the literature thus far. The rarity of metastatic ocular localization implies an accurate differential diagnosis among the possible primary tumor sites. Read More

Clinicopathological effect of PLAG1 fusion genes in pleomorphic adenoma and carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma with special emphasis on histological features.

Histopathology 2019 Feb 2;74(3):514-525. Epub 2018 Dec 2.

Department of Human Pathology, School of Medicine, Juntendo University, Tokyo, Japan.

Aims: Pleomorphic adenoma gene 1 (PLAG1) rearrangement is well known in pleomorphic adenoma (PA), which is histologically characterised by admixed epithelial and mesenchymal components. Multiple fusion variants of PLAG1 and HMGA2 have been reported; currently, however, little is known regarding the clinicopathological impacts of these fusion types METHODS AND RESULTS: We examined the PLAG1- and HMGA2-related fusion status in 105 PAs and 11 cases of carcinoma ex PAs (CXPA) arising from salivary glands and lacrimal glands to elucidate their correlation to the clinicopathological factors. Forty cases harboured PLAG1 fusion genes: CTNNB1-PLAG1 in 22 cases, CHCHD7-PLAG1 in 14 cases and LIFR-PLAG1 in four cases. Read More

Oxf Med Case Reports 2018 Sep 25;2018(9):omy066. Epub 2018 Aug 25.

Division of Internal Medicine, Department of Hematology/Oncology, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Medicine, Lubbock, TX, USA.

Although the histologically diverse classification of salivary gland tumors can be successfully applied to the epithelial lacrimal gland neoplasms, it is not clear whether the molecular makeup differs between these two different tumor types. Adenocarcinomas have known to have driver mutations in non-small cell lung cancer, however, besides HER2 expression not much is known regarding molecular drivers in lacrimal tumors. Androgen receptor (AR) expression and deprivation combined with checkpoint inhibition (CPI) have not been described before in lacrimal gland adenocarcinoma. Read More

Secretory Carcinoma of the Lacrimal Gland: A Rare Case Report.

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2018 Sep/Oct;34(5):e154-e157

Department of Pathology, Wills Eye Hospital, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Secretory carcinoma is a salivary gland malignancy that recapitulates secretory carcinoma of the breast, along with its shared ETV6-NTRK3 gene fusion. Characterization of histopathologic, immunohistochemical, and molecular genetic features of this neoplasm has led to reclassification of a heterogeneous group of salivary gland carcinomas as secretory carcinoma and to identification of this neoplasm in other gland-containing tissues. The authors describe a 52-year-old man who presented with a 2-week history of diplopia and a well-circumscribed right orbital mass. Read More

Purpose Of Review: The goal of this article is to review the key clinical and radiological features, treatment strategies, and prognosis of lacrimal gland tumors.

Recent Findings: Debulking of the orbital lobe of the lacrimal gland may offer improved control rates in dacryoadenitis without compromise of tear film function. Contrary to previous belief, careful biopsy of the lacrimal gland prior to excision does not appear to increase the risk of recurrence in cases with suspected pleomorphic adenoma. Read More

Primary Secretory Carcinoma of the Lacrimal Gland: Report of a New Entity.

Am J Ophthalmol 2018 Sep 28;193:178-183. Epub 2018 Jun 28.

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada; Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Purpose: Secretory carcinoma has been described in the breast, salivary glands, skin, and other organs, but has not been reported in the lacrimal gland to date. Since lacrimal and salivary glands show similar tumors, we hypothesized that lacrimal secretory carcinoma may exist but has been misclassified in the past.

Design: We undertook a retrospective review of all lacrimal gland tumors at 2 tertiary institutions with centralized ocular pathology practices. Read More

Physiologic distribution of PSMA-ligand in salivary glands and seromucous glands of the head and neck on PET/CT.

Oral Surg Oral Med Oral Pathol Oral Radiol 2018 05 31;125(5):478-486. Epub 2018 Jan 31.

Department of Radiation Oncology, The Netherlands Cancer Institute, Amsterdam, The Netherlands; Department of Nuclear Medicine, The Netherlands Cancer Institute, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Objectives: Prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) is used for detection and (re)staging of prostate cancer. However, healthy salivary, seromucous, and lacrimal glands also have high PSMA-ligand uptake. This study aimed to describe physiologic PSMA-ligand uptake distribution characteristics in the head and neck to aid in PSMA PET/CT interpretation and to identify possible new clinical applications for PSMA-ligand imaging.
