Application of the Milan system for reporting salivary gland cytopathology using cell blocks.

Virchows Arch 2022 Jun 24. Epub 2022 Jun 24.

Department of Pathology, Jewish General Hospital, McGill University, 3755 Cote Ste Catherine Road, Montreal, QC, Canada.

The Milan system for reporting salivary gland cytopathology (MSRSGC) is a novel standardized classification tool for salivary gland cytology specimens based on the use of direct smears. Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) cell blocks facilitate the use of ancillary studies, leading to improved diagnostic accuracy. However, the application of the MSRSGC with only cell blocks has not been well established. Read More

Apparent Diffusion Coefficient Map-Based Radiomics Features for Differential Diagnosis of Pleomorphic Adenomas and Warthin Tumors From Malignant Tumors.

Front Oncol 2022 7;12:830496. Epub 2022 Jun 7.

Department of MRI, the First Affiliated Hospital of Zhengzhou University, Zhengzhou, China.

Purpose: The magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings may overlap due to the complex content of parotid gland tumors and the differentiation level of malignant tumor (MT); consequently, patients may undergo diagnostic lobectomy. This study assessed whether radiomics features could noninvasively stratify parotid gland tumors accurately based on apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) maps.

Methods: This study examined diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) obtained with echo planar imaging sequences. Read More

MALDI Mass Spectrometry Imaging Highlights Specific Metabolome and Lipidome Profiles in Salivary Gland Tumor Tissues.

Metabolites 2022 Jun 8;12(6). Epub 2022 Jun 8.

Department of Pharmacy, University of Salerno, Via Giovanni Paolo II, 132, 84084 Fisciano, Italy.

Salivary gland tumors are relatively uncommon neoplasms that represent less than 5% of head and neck tumors, and about 90% are in the parotid gland. The wide variety of histologies and tumor characteristics makes diagnosis and treatment challenging. In the present study, Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry imaging (MALDI-MSI) was used to discriminate the pathological regions of patient-derived biopsies of parotid neoplasms by metabolomic and lipidomic profiles.

Distribution and Frequency of Salivary Gland Tumours: An International Multicenter Study.

Head Neck Pathol 2022 May 27. Epub 2022 May 27.

Unit of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology, School of Clinical Dentistry, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, S10 2TA, UK.

Background: Salivary gland tumours (SGT) are a relatively rare group of neoplasms with a wide range of histopathological appearance and clinical features. To date, most of the epidemiological studies on salivary gland tumours are limited for a variety of reason including being out of date, extrapolated from either a single centre or country studies, or investigating either major or minor glands only.

Methods: This study aimed to mitigate these shortcomings by analysing epidemiological data including demographic, anatomical location and histological diagnoses of SGT from multiple centres across the world. Read More

Hals-Nasen-Ohren-Klinik, Kopf- und Halschirurgie, Universitätsklinikum Erlangen-Nürnberg, Waldstr. 1, 91054, Erlangen, Deutschland.

Background: Due to the rarity of primary parotid malignancies, there are currently only limited clinical study data on the optimal surgical therapy. Parotid malignancies encompass a broad spectrum of more than 20 different histological subtypes with varying biology, which thus represents a challenge for even experienced pathologists and head and neck surgeons with proven expertise in salivary gland surgery.

Objective: The aim of this review article is to provide an overview of the current literature on surgical therapy of the primary tumor and the cN0 neck as well as treatment of the facial nerve, and to shed light on the various controversial aspects of this topic. Read More
