Calciphylaxis and Ulcerative Lesions of Bilateral Nipple-Areolar Complex Due to Alcoholic Liver Disease.

Indian J Radiol Imaging 2022 Mar 1;32(1):142-144. Epub 2022 May 1.

Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Grande International Hospital, Dhapasi, Kathmandu, Nepal.

When faced with eczematous lesions involving the nipple-areolar complex (NAC), Paget's disease is assumed to be the diagnosis, anything else being considered a "Zebra" necessitating its exclusion on pathology. A middle-aged lady presented with synchronous asymmetrical ulceration of bilateral NAC with pleomorphic calcifications on mammography and simultaneous extensive vascular calcification in bilateral breasts that suggested systemic cause. Calciphylaxis is a rare diagnosis occurring usually due to underlying end-stage renal disease or hyperparathyroidism. Read More

A peculiar case of Paget's disease of the breast.

Ann Ital Chir 2022 May 5;11. Epub 2022 May 5.

Mammary Paget's disease is a disorder of the nipple-areola complex of the breast that, while rare, is often associated with an underlying carcinoma. The typical aspect is usually an eczematoid change of the nipple or a red and ulcerative nipple's lesion or erythematous and crusted lesion, with or without mass-like lesion and infiltration and inversion of the nipple. It was described at first by Sir James Paget in 1874, [1] who classified the disease in mammary and extramammary type. Read More

Unusual Manifestations of Vulval Paget Disease.

Int J Gynecol Pathol 2021 Sep 27. Epub 2021 Sep 27.

Department of Pathology, Royal Gwent Hospital, Newport (V.I.S.) Department of Histopathology, Portsmouth University Hospitals NHS Trust, Portsmouth (L.B.) Department of Cellular Pathology, University Hospital Wales, Cardiff (G.L.R.) Department of Pathology, Belfast Health and Social Care Trust, Belfast (W.G.M.C.), UK.

Vulval extramammary Paget disease (vEMPD) is an uncommon epithelial malignancy that may arise within the vulva (primary vEMPD) or represent vulval skin involvement by a noncutaneous carcinoma (secondary vEMPD). Primary vEMPD is most often an in situ carcinoma arising within the epidermis but may be associated with dermal invasion (invasive vEMPD) or represent intraepidermal spread of an adenocarcinoma originating in vulval skin adnexa or anogenital mammary-like glands. The latter, termed mammary gland-like adenocarcinoma (MGLA), exhibits morphologic, immunohistochemical, and molecular features of various breast carcinomas but, as far as we are aware, the metaplastic variant of MGLA has not been reported on the vulva.
