Purpose: GNAQ mutations have been identified in port wine stains (both syndromic and non-syndromic) and melanocytic ocular neoplasms. This study investigates the presence of GNAQ mutations in diffuse- (those associated with Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS)) and solitary choroidal hemangiomas.
Participants: Tissue from 11 patients with the following diagnoses: port wine stain (n = 3), diffuse choroidal hemangioma (n = 1), solitary choroidal hemangioma (n = 6), choroidal nevus (n =1) METHODS: Ten specimens were interrogated with Memorial Sloan Kettering-Integrated Mutation Profiling of Actionable Cancer Targets (MSK-IMPACT), a hybridization capture-based next-generation sequencing assay for targeted deep sequencing of all exons and selected introns of 468 key cancer genes in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tumors.

Background: An increasingly elderly population with a corresponding increase in ophthalmic conditions has led to increased pressure on hospital eye services (HES). In this study, we evaluated the use of a medical retina virtual clinic (MRVC), which has expanded into assessing all new medical retina referrals, where the need for urgent treatment was not clear.
Methods: Retrospective analysis of all new patients who were seen in the MRVC between April 2016 and May 2018. Read More

Early diagnosis improves melanoma survival, yet the histopathological diagnosis of cutaneous primary melanoma can be challenging even for expert dermatopathologists. Analysis of epigenetic alterations, such as DNA methylation, that occur in melanoma can aid in its early diagnosis. Using a genome-wide methylation screen, we assessed CpG methylation in a diverse set of 89 primary invasive melanomas, 73 nevi, and 41 melanocytic proliferations of uncertain malignant potential, classified based on interobserver review by dermatopathologists.

Neurocristic cutaneous hamartomas (NCHs) are rarely reported tumors with divergent differentiation derived from persistently active pluripotent cells from the neural crest. They result from aberrant development of the neuromesenchyme, and they can express fibrogenic, melanocytic, and/or neurosustentacular differentiation. Thus, congenital melanocytic nevus also represents a neurocristic dysplasia of the skin in which cells are melanogenic cells arrested in development located in the reticular dermis, and nodular proliferative neurocristic hamartoma may arise within a congenital melanocytic nevus.

Blue rubber bleb nevus syndrome (BRBNS) is a rare disease with vascular malformations in several systems of the body, most commonly the skin and gastrointestinal tract. Bleeding from the gastrointestinal (GI) tract is a major complication, which may lead to chronic iron deficiency anemia and the need for frequent blood transfusions due to ongoing gastrointestinal blood loss. In this case report, we describe a now 19-year-old female with BRBNS who required six blood transfusions per year and after starting sirolimus is symptom- and transfusion-free. Read More

Syringocystadenoma papilliferum (SCAP) is a benign tumor most commonly located on the head and neck area often associated with nevus sebaceus. In its usual location, the human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA and mutations in the RAS/mitogen-activated protein kinase signaling pathway have been detected in SCAP. We studied 16 cases of SCAP in the anogenital areas and buttock where this neoplasm is rare and attempted to find out whether SCAP in these sites have different histopathological and molecular biological features.

Sebaceous naevus (sebaceous hamartoma) is a congenital lesion mainly localized to the scalp, whose clinical and histologic diagnosis is generally easy. In the vast majority of cases, it is diagnosed at birth, but it can sometimes go unnoticed and give the impression to occur later. This lesion may be complicated by benign tumors or more rare malignancies. Read More
