Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Jan;98(4):e14223

Department of Radiology, Shenzhen Children's Hospital, Shenzhen, Guangdong, China.

Rationale: Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors (MPNSTs) are rare neoplasms with only a few reported cases affecting the nasal cavity, paranasal sinuses, and anterior skull base.

Patient Concerns: A 12-year-old girl with a mass in her nose was admitted to the Department of Otorhinolaryngology of Shenzhen Children's Hospital.

Loss of atypical chemokine receptor 4 facilitates C-C motif chemokine ligand 21-mediated tumor growth and invasion in nasopharyngeal carcinoma.

Exp Ther Med 2019 Jan 23;17(1):613-620. Epub 2018 Nov 23.

Department of Radiotherapy, The Third Affiliated Hospital of Kunming Medical University, Tumor Hospital of Yunnan Province, Kunming, Yunnan 650000, P.R. China.

Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is a common malignant disease that is prevalent in Asian countries. Atypical chemokine receptor 4 (ACKR4) binds to various chemokines, including C-C motif chemokine ligand (CCL)19, CCL21, CCL25 and C-X-C motif chemokine ligand 13, without inducing downstream signaling transduction. However, the role of ACKR4 in modulating NPC development remains unclear. Read More

The emerging role of Epstein-Barr virus encoded microRNAs in nasopharyngeal carcinoma.

J Cancer 2018 30;9(16):2852-2864. Epub 2018 Jul 30.

Hunan Key Laboratory of Translational Radiation Oncology, Hunan Cancer Hospital and the Affiliated Cancer Hospital of Xiangya School of Medicine, Central South University, Changsha, Hunan, China.

Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is an oncogenic herpes virus that is closely associated with the initiation and development of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), lymphoma and other malignant tumors. EBV encodes 44 mature miRNAs that regulate viral and host cell gene expression and plays a variety of roles in biological functions and the development of cancer. In this review, we summarized the biological functions and molecular mechanisms of Epstein-Barr virus-encoded microRNAs (EBV miRNAs) in tumor immune evasion, proliferation, anti-apoptosis, invasion, metastasis and as a potential biomarker for NPC diagnosis and prognosis.

A cancer-associated Epstein-Barr virus BZLF1 promoter variant enhances lytic infection.

PLoS Pathog 2018 07 27;14(7):e1007179. Epub 2018 Jul 27.

Department of Oncology in Wisconsin Institutes for Medical Research, McArdle Laboratory for Cancer Research, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Madison, Wisconsin, United States of America.

Latent Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection contributes to both B-cell and epithelial-cell malignancies. However, whether lytic EBV infection also contributes to tumors is unclear, although the association between malaria infection and Burkitt lymphomas (BLs) may involve excessive lytic EBV replication. A particular variant of the viral promoter (Zp) that controls lytic EBV reactivation is over-represented, relative to its frequency in non-malignant tissue, in EBV-positive nasopharyngeal carcinomas and AIDS-related lymphomas.

Infratemporal fossa tumors: When to suspect a malignant tumor? A retrospective cohort study of 62 cases.

Eur Ann Otorhinolaryngol Head Neck Dis 2018 Oct 10;135(5):311-314. Epub 2018 Jul 10.

Head and Neck Department, Lariboisière Hospital, University Paris 7, 2, rue Amboise-Paré, 75010 Paris, France.

Objectives: Infratemporal fossa (ITF) tumors are rare and little is known about their general epidemiology, making it sometimes difficult for clinicians, who seldom encounter them, to distinguish between benign and malignant forms on the basis of the initial clinical and radiological work-up alone. The objectives of this retrospective study were: (i) to determine the respective prevalences of the various histologic types of ITF tumor, and (ii) to assess associations between certain clinical and radiological features and malignancy.

Methods: A single-center observational study in a university hospital included all new consecutive cases of ITF tumor treated from January 2000 to December 2016. Read More

Oncology Center, Affiliated Hospital of Guangdong Medical University, Zhanjiang, Guangdong 524001, P.R. China.

SETDB1, an H3K9‑specific histone methyltransferase, has been described as a repressed transcription marker which triggers tumorigenesis of many types of human cancer. However, there are few studies elucidating the relationship between SETDB1 and nasopharyngeal carcinoma. In the present study, we confirmed that SETDB1 exhibited higher expression levels in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) tissues and cell lines, compared to these levels in non‑tumor tissues and a normal human nasopharyngeal epithelial cell line.

Case Report of Myeloid Sarcoma Masquerading as In-Transit Metastasis at a Previous Melanoma Site: Avoiding a Diagnostic Pitfall.

Am J Dermatopathol 2018 Nov;40(11):831-835

Surgical Oncology, and.

Myeloid sarcoma is a rare extramedullary hematologic malignancy. Accurate and timely diagnosis may be challenging because myeloid sarcoma is known to mimic solid tumors, including hepatobiliary, nasopharyngeal, and breast carcinomas. We report a case of myeloid sarcoma that developed in the primary tumor lymphatic drainage field of a previously treated intermediate-thickness cutaneous melanoma, clinically and radiographically mimicking an in-transit metastasis, in a patient with myelodysplastic syndrome.

The role of nasopharyngeal examination and biopsy in the diagnosis of malignant diseases.

Braz J Otorhinolaryngol 2018 May 15. Epub 2018 May 15.

University of Health Sciences, Ankara Training and Research Hospital, Department of Pathology, Ankara, Turkey.

Introduction: In direct proportion to the increasing rate of nasopharynx examinations applied, the early diagnosis and treatment of lesions in this region is possible. At times the clinical findings and the biopsy results are not consistent, so biopsies may have to be repeated.

Objectives: The aim of this study was to evaluate the distribution of pathology test results obtained from cases of nasopharynx biopsy, to determine with which methods determination most often was made, and to investigate which kinds of cases required the biopsy to be repeated. Read More

A novel oncogene URG4/URGCP and its role in cancer.

Gene 2018 Aug 18;668:12-17. Epub 2018 May 18.

Ankara University Medical Faculty Department of Forensic Medicine, Ankara, Turkey.

Oncogenes are mutated form of normal cellular genes called as proto-oncogenes and conduce to the cancer development process. Despite the fact that so many genes have been described, new genes with oncogenic characteristic and potential or tumor supressoring activity are still being defined. Recently, Up-regulated gene 4/Upregulator of cell proliferation (URG4/URGCP), a novel gene, induced by hepatitis-Bvirus-encoded X antigen (HBxAg), has been identified. Read More

Oncology Center, Affiliated Hospital of Guangdong Medical University, Zhanjiang, Guangdong 524001, P.R. China.

Radiotherapy is a vital treatment option for patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). Concurrent cisplatin-based radiochemotherapy with or without adjuvant chemotherapy had acquired good clinical effects with good local control rates. However, a number of patients present with metastasis following systemic regimens or initial diagnosis of locally advanced NPC, which cause difficulty for subsequent therapy. Read More

Front Oncol 2018 20;8:123. Epub 2018 Apr 20.

College of Medicine, Qatar University, Doha, Qatar.

Gliomas are the most common malignant brain tumors and account for around 60% of all primary central nervous system cancers. Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is a grade IV glioma associated with a poor outcome despite recent advances in chemotherapy. The etiology of gliomas is unknown, but neurotropic viruses including the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) that is transmitted salivary and genital fluids have been implicated recently. Read More
