Front Oncol 2020 2;10:728. Epub 2020 Jun 2.

Center for Gastroenterology, Sapporo Higashi Tokushukai Hospital, Sapporo, Japan.

Pancreatobiliary tumors frequently contain multiple malignant and precancerous lesions; however, the origin of the driver mutations and the mechanisms that underlie the generation of distinct clones within an organ field remain unclear. Herein, we describe a 76-year-old male suffering from moderately differentiated adenocarcinomas of the pancreas that primarily involved the distal bile duct and multiple "dispersing" invasive lesions in the pancreatic head. The patient underwent pylorus-preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy with superior mesenteric vein resection, and targeted sequencing of 18 genes associated with pancreatic tumorigenesis and immunohistochemical analysis of RNF43 and ARID1A were performed on each tumor compartment, including the invasive and non-invasive areas.

Department of Biotechnology, Himachal Pradesh University, Summer Hill, Shimla, 171 005 India. Electronic address:

Kidney stone is a common urological condition, the prevalence and incidence of which has escalated in the last few years due to dietary habits and other related medical conditions such as obesity and diabetes mellitus. It is a chronic disease which leads to loss of kidney function(s) and nephrectomy. Chronic kidney stone disease has been shown to be associated with transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) or renal cell carcinoma (RCC) and kidney tumors have been found to be more frequent among patients with kidney stones.

Differential MicroRNA-Signatures in Thyroid Cancer Subtypes.

J Oncol 2020 3;2020:2052396. Epub 2020 Jun 3.

Center for Health Disparities & Molecular Medicine, Department of Pathology & Human Anatomy, Division of Biochemistry, Otolaryngology, Internal Medicine, Loma Linda University, School of Medicine, Loma Linda, CA, USA.

Thyroid cancer is one of the most common endocrine cancers, with an increasing trend in the last few decades. Although papillary thyroid cancer is the most frequent subtype compared with follicular or anaplastic thyroid cancer, it can dedifferentiate to a more aggressive phenotype, and the recurrence rate is high. The cells of follicular adenomas and follicular carcinomas appear identical in cytology, making the preoperative diagnosis difficult. Read More

Reappraisal of the papillary urothelial neoplasm of low malignant potential (PUNLMP).

Histopathology 2020 Jun 20. Epub 2020 Jun 20.

Department of Pathology, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, Indiana, USA.

Although the papillary urothelial neoplasm of low malignant potential (PUNLMP) diagnostic category was retained in the updated 2016 World Health Organization classification of tumors of the urinary system, there still exists a great deal of controversy regarding the biologic behavior of these tumors. We review PUNLMP tumors and histological grading with an emphasis on the histomorphological, genetic, and clinical similarities between PUNLMP and low-grade non-invasive papillary urothelial carcinoma. A literature search using PubMed was performed. Read More

Napsin A is a highly sensitive marker for nephrogenic adenoma: an immunohistochemical study with specificity test in genitourinary tumors.

Hum Pathol 2020 Jun 16. Epub 2020 Jun 16.

Department of Pathology and Immunology, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO, United States. Electronic address:

Nephrogenic adenomas are uncommon benign lesions that are typically cytologically bland, but degenerative and reactive changes may make it difficult to distinguish these lesions from malignant entities, such as urothelial carcinoma and prostatic adenocarcinoma. In this study, we explored whether napsin A, a sensitive marker for lung adenocarcinoma, may also have a role in distinguishing nephrogenic adenoma from other genitourinary lesions. Immunohistochemically, napsin A was expressed in all 43 nephrogenic adenomas (bladder 38, prostatic urethra 4, and ureter 1; mean positive tumor cells 72%, median 80%, range 15-100%) and showed regional variability in its expression pattern with a bias towards surface architectures (flat, papillary) compared to stromal architectures (tubular/glandular, microcystic).

The genomic and epigenomic evolutionary history of papillary renal cell carcinomas.

Nat Commun 2020 Jun 18;11(1):3096. Epub 2020 Jun 18.

Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics, National Cancer Institute, NIH, DHHS, Bethesda, MD, 20892, USA.

Intratumor heterogeneity (ITH) and tumor evolution have been well described for clear cell renal cell carcinomas (ccRCC), but they are less studied for other kidney cancer subtypes. Here we investigate ITH and clonal evolution of papillary renal cell carcinoma (pRCC) and rarer kidney cancer subtypes, integrating whole-genome sequencing and DNA methylation data. In 29 tumors, up to 10 samples from the center to the periphery of each tumor, and metastatic samples in 2 cases, enable phylogenetic analysis of spatial features of clonal expansion, which shows congruent patterns of genomic and epigenomic evolution.

Validation of American Joint Committee on Cancer 8 edition of TNM staging in resected distal pancreatic cancer.

World J Gastrointest Pharmacol Ther 2020 Jun;11(2):25-39

Department of Pathology, Immunology and Lab Medicine, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32610, United States.

Background: In order to improve risk stratification and clinical management of the pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC), the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) has published its eighth edition staging manual. Some major changes have been introduced in the new staging system for both T and N categories. Given the rarity of resectable disease, distal pancreatic cancer is likely underrepresented in the published clinical studies, and how the impact of the staging system actually reflects on to clinical outcomes remain unclear.

Well-Differentiated Papillary Mesothelioma of the Peritoneum Is Genetically Distinct from Malignant Mesothelioma.

Cancers (Basel) 2020 Jun 13;12(6). Epub 2020 Jun 13.

Department of Pathology, Vancouver General Hospital, Vancouver, BC V5Z 1M9, Canada.

Well-differentiated papillary mesothelioma (WDPM) is an uncommon mesothelial proliferation that is most commonly encountered as an incidental finding in the peritoneal cavity. There is controversy in the literature about whether WDPM is a neoplasm or a reactive process and, if neoplastic, whether it is a variant or precursor of epithelial malignant mesothelioma or is a different entity. Using whole exome sequencing of five WDPMs of the peritoneum, we have identified distinct mutations in , , , , , , and shared by WDPM cases but not reported in malignant mesotheliomas. Read More
