Characterization of Intraductal Papillary Neoplasm of the Bile Duct with Respect to the Histopathologic Similarities to Pancreatic Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Neoplasm.

Gut Liver 2019 Apr 15. Epub 2019 Apr 15.

Department of Hepatobiliary Pancreatic Surgery, Shizuoka Cancer Center, Sunto, Japan.

Intraductal papillary neoplasms of the bile duct (IPNBs) are known to show various pathologic features and biological behaviors. Recently, two categories of IPNBs have been proposed based on their histologic similarities to pancreatic intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs): type 1 IPNBs, which share many features with IPMNs; and type 2 IPNBs, which are variably different from IPMNs. The four IPNB subtypes were re-evaluated with respect to these two categories. Read More

Papillary thyroid carcinoma behavior: clues in the tumor microenvironment.

Endocr Relat Cancer 2019 Apr 1. Epub 2019 Apr 1.

V Weiss, Pathology, Microbiology, and Immunology, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville, 37232-2102, United States.

The prevalence of thyroid carcinoma is increasing and represents the most common endocrine malignancy, with papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) being the most frequent subtype. The genetic alterations identified in PTCs fail to distinguish tumors with different clinical behaviors, such as extra-thyroidal extension and lymph node metastasis. We hypothesize that the immune microenvironment may play a critical role in tumor invasion and metastasis. Read More

Cytological features of noninvasive follicular thyroid neoplasm with papillary-like nuclear features (NIFTP).

J Am Soc Cytopathol 2019 Jan - Feb;8(1):5-10. Epub 2018 Aug 8.

Department of Pathology, Mount Sinai Health System, New York, New York.

Introduction: The noninvasive encapsulated follicular variant of papillary carcinoma (EFVPC) was recently renamed a noninvasive follicular thyroid neoplasm with papillary-like nuclear features (NIFTP) because of its unique genetic alterations and biological behavior. The objective of this report is to help cytopathologists and cytotechnologists improve diagnostic accuracy and determine the need for cytogenetic studies during adequacy evaluation of thyroid fine-needle aspirations.

Materials And Methods: Fifty-five cases of surgery-proven noninvasive EFVPC with corresponding cytology material were reviewed. Read More

Distinguishing non-invasive follicular thyroid neoplasm with papillary-like nuclear features (NIFTP) from classic and invasive follicular-variant papillary thyroid carcinomas based on cytologic features.

J Am Soc Cytopathol 2019 Jan - Feb;8(1):11-17. Epub 2018 Jul 24.

Department of Pathology, University of Maryland School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland.

Introduction: An international panel recently recommended reclassification of non-invasive follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) to non-invasive follicular thyroid neoplasm with papillary-like nuclear features (NIFTP). NIFTPs have little or no risk of recurrence and can be treated with lobectomy alone. Preoperative distinction of NIFTP from PTC will help avoid overtreatment. Read More

Indeterminate nodules by the Bethesda system for reporting thyroid cytopathology in Israel: Frequency, and risk of malignancy after reclassification of follicular thyroid neoplasm with papillary-like features.

Eur J Surg Oncol 2019 Mar 15. Epub 2019 Mar 15.

Institute of Endocrinology, Metabolism, and Hypertension, Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center, Israel; Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Israel.

Objective: We aimed to determine the frequency and risk of malignancy (ROM) for indeterminate thyroid nodules, categories III (B3) and IV (B4) of the Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology (BSRTC), at a large institution in Israel. Additionally, we investigated the impact of redefining follicular neoplasm with papillary-like nuclear features (NIFTP) as non-malignant on malignancy rates.

Methods: In this retrospective study of all thyroid fine needle aspirations (FNAs) performed at Tel Aviv-Sourasky Medical Center between January 2013 and December 2015, we assessed ROM for B3 and B4 nodules. Read More

Abnormal oxidative metabolism in a quiet genomic background underlies clear cell papillary renal cell carcinoma.

Elife 2019 Apr 1;8. Epub 2019 Apr 1.

Human Oncology and Pathogenesis Program, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, United States.

While genomic sequencing routinely identifies oncogenic alterations for the majority of cancers, many tumors harbor no discernable driver lesion. Here, we describe the exceptional molecular phenotype of a genomically quiet kidney tumor, clear cell papillary renal cell carcinoma (CCPAP). In spite of a largely wild-type nuclear genome, CCPAP tumors exhibit severe depletion of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) and RNA and high levels of oxidative stress, reflecting a shift away from respiratory metabolism.

AGK-BRAF is associated with distant metastasis and younger age in pediatric papillary thyroid carcinoma.

Pediatr Blood Cancer 2019 Mar 29:e27707. Epub 2019 Mar 29.

Genetic Bases of Thyroid Tumors Laboratory, Division of Genetics, Department of Morphology and Genetics, Universidade Federal de São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil.

Background: The incidence of thyroid carcinoma has increased in most populations, including pediatric patients. The increase is almost exclusively due to an increase in the incidence of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). Genetic alterations leading to mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathway activation are highly prevalent in PTC, with BRAF V600E mutation being the most common event in adult PTC. Read More

High-grade Features of Papillary Cystadenocarcinoma of the Parotid Gland.

Oman Med J 2019 Mar;34(2):164-168

Department of Radiology, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas.

Papillary cystadenocarcinomas (PCAs) are rare low-grade salivary gland tumors first introduced in the World Health Organization classification in 1991. While classically regarded as a low-grade malignancy, PCAs with more clinically and histologically high-grade features have been reported, reflecting the often-underrecognized morphological diversity of this entity. Although no universally advocated grading system exists, high-grade PCAs tend to demonstrate locally aggressive features, cytologic atypia, high mitotic rate, necrosis, and an absence of papillary features.
