    Invasive Extramammary Paget Disease of the Vulva With Signet Ring Cell Morphology in a Patient With Signet Ring Cell Carcinoma of the Stomach: Report of a Case.
    Int J Gynecol Pathol 2018 Mar;37(2):147-151
    Department of Pathology, Asan Medical Center, University of Ulsan College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.
    This report describes a rare case of invasive extramammary Paget disease of the vulva with signet ring cell morphology in a 58-yr-old woman with a history of signet ring cell carcinoma of the stomach. This case was initially misinterpreted as a metastatic gastric carcinoma to the vulva because an initial small, superficial biopsy specimen showed infiltration of signet ring cells in the dermis without intraepidermal Paget cells. However, a surgically resected specimen showed concordant immunophenotypes in both intraepidermal Paget cells and intradermal signet ring cell components with immunoreactivity to cytokeratin (CK) 7, CEA, and gross cystic disease fluid protein-15, and immunonegativity for CK20, MUC5AC, and MUC6.

    Vulvar and Anal Intraepithelial Neoplasia: Terminology, Diagnosis, and Ancillary Studies.
    Adv Anat Pathol 2017 May;24(3):136-150
    Department of Pathology, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, CA.
    Currently, it is recognized that there is an HPV-related and an HPV-independent pathway to developing squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) in the anus and vulva. The majority of precursor lesions and SCC in the anus and vulva are high-risk HPV-associated, with HPV16 the most common type. Given the morphologic overlap and biological equivalence of HPV-related preinvasive squamous lesions of the lower anogenital tract, a unified, 2-tiered histopathologic nomenclature is now recommended.
