The Spectrum of Spitz Melanocytic Lesions: From Morphologic Diagnosis to Molecular Classification.

Front Oncol 2022 7;12:889223. Epub 2022 Jun 7.

Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, United States.

Spitz tumors represent a distinct subtype of melanocytic lesions with characteristic histopathologic features, some of which are overlapping with melanoma. More common in the pediatric and younger population, they can be clinically suspected by recognizing specific patterns on dermatoscopic examination, and several subtypes have been described. We now classify these lesions into benign Spitz nevi, intermediate lesions identified as "atypical Spitz tumors" (or Spitz melanocytoma) and malignant Spitz melanoma. Read More

Clinical and Molecular Spectrum of Sporadic Vascular Malformations: A Single-Center Study.

Biomedicines 2022 Jun 20;10(6). Epub 2022 Jun 20.

Dermatology Unit and Genodermatosis Unit, Genetics and Rare Diseases Research Division, Bambino Gesù Children's Hospital, IRCCS, Piazza Sant'Onofrio 4, 00165 Rome, Italy.

Sporadic vascular malformations (VMs) are a large group of disorders of the blood and lymphatic vessels caused by somatic mutations in several genes-mainly regulating the RAS/MAPK/ERK and PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathways. We performed a cross-sectional study of 43 patients affected with sporadic VMs, who had received molecular diagnosis by high-depth targeted next-generation sequencing in our center. Clinical and imaging features were correlated with the sequence variants identified in lesional tissues. Read More

Genetic and methylation profiles distinguish benign, malignant and spitzoid melanocytic tumors.

Int J Cancer 2022 Jun 23. Epub 2022 Jun 23.

Department of Dermatology, University Hospital Essen, University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany, and German Cancer Consortium (DKTK), Heidelberg, Germany.

Accurate classification of melanocytic tumors is important for prognostic evaluation, treatment and follow-up protocols of patients. The majority of melanocytic proliferations can be classified solely based on clinical and pathological criteria, however in select cases a definitive diagnostic assessment remains challenging and additional diagnostic biomarkers would be advantageous. We analysed melanomas, nevi, Spitz nevi, and atypical spitzoid tumors using parallel sequencing (exons of 611 genes and 507 gene translocation analysis) and methylation arrays (850k Illumina EPIC).

[The risks of tanning with the Barbie drug].

Ned Tijdschr Geneeskd 2022 May 19;166. Epub 2022 May 19.

Groene Hart Ziekenhuis, afd. Interne Geneeskunde, Gouda.

Background: Melanotan II, also known as 'Barbie drugs', can be purchased over the internet and in gyms to facilitate sunless tanning. The purchased product is a alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (α-MSH) analogue, which stimulates the production of eumelanin to get skin pigmentation. However, previous research showed that Melanotan supports the development of new pigmented and dysplastic naevi. Read More

Human Technopole, 20157 Milan, Italy; Smurfit Institute of Genetics, Trinity College Dublin, Dublin, Ireland; Department of Cultural Heritage, University of Salento, 73100 Lecce, Italy; Department of Chemistry, Life Sciences and Environmental Sustainability, University of Parma, 43124 Parma, Italy. Electronic address:

Southern Italy was characterised by a complex prehistory that started with different Palaeolithic cultures, later followed by the Neolithization and the demic dispersal from the Pontic-Caspian Steppe during the Bronze Age. Archaeological and historical evidences point to a link between Southern Italians and the Balkans still present in modern times. To shed light on these dynamics, we analysed around 700 South Mediterranean genomes combined with informative ancient DNAs. Read More

University of Barcelona, Villarroel 170, 08036, Barcelona, Spain; Department of Pathology, Hospital Clinic of Barcelona, Villarroel 170, 08036, Spain; August Pi i Sunyer Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBAPS), Casanova 143, 08036 Barcelona, Spain. Electronic address:

The aims of the study were to investigate and compare the immunophenotype of tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) and PD-L1 expression in a series of benign, intermediate and malignant Spitzoid lesions showing marked inflammatory lymphoid component, to find out its possible relation with the prognosis of these lesions. Six out of 97 Spitz nevus (SN) (6 %), five out of 26 atypical Spitz tumors (AST) (16 %) and seven out of 37 Spitzoid melanomas (SM) (19 %) showed diffuse, intense inflammatory component and were included in the study. The biological risk of the tumors was assessed in all AST through the melanoma 4 probe-FISH assay and the 9p21 locus exploration. Read More

Primary Cutaneous Malignant Melanoma with Rhabdomyosarcomatous Differentiation Originating from a Melanocytic Nevus in a Patient with Myelodysplastic Syndrome.

J Cutan Pathol 2022 Jun 15. Epub 2022 Jun 15.

Department of Dermatology, School of Medicine, Chungnam National University, Daejeon, Republic of Korea.

Malignant melanoma may rarely exhibit divergent differentiation, in which melanocytic markers may be lost, leading to difficulty in diagnosis. A 64-year-old man recently diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome complained of development of a nodule in a melanocytic nevus on his scalp. On histopathologic examination, junctional nevus nests and diffuse cellular infiltrations with a sheet-like growth pattern of pleomorphic epithelioid cells were observed in the upper dermis.

Department of Burn and Plastic Surgery, Shenzhen Institute of Translational Medicine, The First Affiliated Hospital of Shenzhen University, Shenzhen Second People's Hospital, Shenzhen, China.

Background: Skin cutaneous melanoma (SKCM) is the deadliest skin cancer and has the most rapidly increasing incidences among all cancer types. Previous research elucidated that melanoma can only be successfully treated with surgical abscission in the early stage. Therefore, reliable and specific biomarkers are crucial to melanoma diagnosis since it often looks like nevi in the clinical manifestations. Read More

Encorafenib plus cetuximab with or without binimetinib in patients with BRAF V600E-mutated metastatic colorectal cancer: real-life data from an Italian multicenter experience.

ESMO Open 2022 Jun 10;7(3):100506. Epub 2022 Jun 10.

Department of Translational Research and New Technologies in Medicine and Surgery, Unit of Medical Oncology 2, Azienda Ospedaliero Universitaria Pisana, Pisa, Italy.

Background: Encorafenib plus cetuximab with or without binimetinib showed increased objective response rate (ORR), progression-free survival (PFS), and overall survival (OS) compared with chemotherapy plus anti-EGFR in previously treated patients with BRAF V600E-mutated (mut) metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). Although no formal comparison was planned, addition of binimetinib to encorafenib plus cetuximab did not provide significant efficacy advantage.

Patients And Methods: This real-life study was aimed at evaluating safety, activity, and efficacy of encorafenib plus cetuximab with or without binimetinib in patients with BRAF V600E-mut mCRC treated at 21 Italian centers within a nominal use program launched in May 2019. Read More

Rosette-like formations in melanocytic neoplasms: A case report and literature review.

J Cutan Pathol 2022 Jun 9. Epub 2022 Jun 9.

Lauren V. Ackerman Laboratory of Surgical Pathology and Dermatopathology Center, Department of Pathology and Immunology, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, Missouri, USA.

Homer-Wright-like rosettes are a common finding in neural tumors but seldom seen in melanocytic nevi and melanoma. We report a case of a 23-year-old male with a compound melanocytic nevus with such rosette-like structures and summarize the current literature on this histopathological feature in melanocytic neoplasms. A symmetric, well-circumscribed, compound nevus consisting of aggregations of epithelioid melanocytes with eccentric nuclei and central eosinophilic cytoplasm, resembling Homer-Wright rosettes, was present on biopsy.
