Left supraclavicular (Virchow's) node metastasis detected before primary infradiaphragmatic tumor: a case series.

J Med Case Rep 2022 Jan 26;16(1):33. Epub 2022 Jan 26.

Division of Diagnostic Radiology, Graduate School, Tokyo Medical and Dental University, Tokyo, Japan.

Background: Metastasis of infradiaphragmatic tumors to the left supraclavicular lymph node is reported to be rare. When metastasis is detected in the left supraclavicular node in patients with head and neck carcinoma, locating the primary cancer remains a difficult and time-consuming challenge despite the dramatic development of screening technologies and treatment methods.

Case Presentation: We report three cases of malignant infradiaphragmatic tumor diagnosed following an initial finding of left supraclavicular node metastasis after surgery for tongue squamous cell carcinoma (follow-up period, range 18-62 months). Read More

Cytokeratin 5 and cytokeratin 6 expressions are unconnected in normal and cancerous tissues and have separate diagnostic implications.

Virchows Arch 2022 Feb 24;480(2):433-447. Epub 2021 Sep 24.

Institute of Pathology, University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf, Martinistr. 52, 20246, Hamburg, Germany.

Cytokeratins (CKs) 5 and 6 are functionally unrelated but often analyzed together using bispecific antibodies in diagnostic immunohistochemistry. To better understand the diagnostic utility of CK5 or CK6 alone, tissue microarrays with > 15,000 samples from 120 different tumor types as well as 608 samples of 76 different normal tissues were analyzed by immunohistochemistry. In normal tissues, both CKs occurred in the squamous epithelium; CK5 dominated in basal and CK6 in suprabasal layers. Read More

An IgG-based bispecific antibody for improved dual targeting in PSMA-positive cancer.

EMBO Mol Med 2021 02 29;13(2):e11902. Epub 2020 Dec 29.

Department of Immunology, Institute for Cell Biology, Eberhard Karls University Tuebingen, German Cancer Consortium (DKTK), Partner Site Tuebingen, Tuebingen, Germany.

The prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) has been demonstrated in numerous studies to be expressed specifically on prostate carcinoma cells and on the neovasculature of several other cancer entities. However, the simultaneous expression of PSMA on both, tumor cells as well as tumor vessels remains unclear, even if such "dual" expression would constitute an important asset to facilitate sufficient influx of effector cells to a given tumor site. We report here on the generation of a PSMA antibody, termed 10B3, which exerts superior dual reactivity on sections of prostate carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma of the lung. Read More

From the Department of Pathology, University of Michigan Medical School, Ann Arbor.

Context.—: While the vast majority of cervical tumors consist of human papillomavirus (HPV)-related squamous cell carcinoma or adenocarcinoma, a subset of rare tumor types, frequently unrelated to HPV, does occur in this location. These tumors vary widely in prognostic and therapeutic implications, and accurate recognition is crucial to providing appropriate treatment. Read More

Ann Diagn Pathol 2020 Oct 14;48:151593. Epub 2020 Aug 14.

University of Texas, MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX, USA.

The urinary bladder may be involved by a variety of secondary tumors that originate from other organs. Bladder secondary tumors are rare and may be mistaken as bladder primary tumors because of their overlapping morphologic features. To avoid the diagnostic pitfalls, we analyzed the clinicopathologic features of bladder secondary tumors in a large cohort of patients. Read More

Abstract: A 71-year-old man underwent 18F-FDG and 68Ga-FAPI-46 PET/CT for initial staging prior to surgery of a squamous cell carcinoma of the lower esophagus under the prospective study NCT04147494. Both scans showed increased uptake in the mid and distal esophagus without evidence of metastatic disease. A soft tissue right infrascapular mass with mild 18F-FDG and moderate 68Ga-FAPI-46 uptake was incidentally found. Read More

Novel genetic variants in genes of the Fc gamma receptor-mediated phagocytosis pathway predict non-small cell lung cancer survival.

Transl Lung Cancer Res 2020 Jun;9(3):575-586

Duke Cancer Institute, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, NC, USA.

Background: Both antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity and phagocytosis activate innate immunity, and the Fc gamma receptor (FCGR)-mediated phagocytosis is an integral part of the process. We assessed associations between single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in FCGR-related genes and survival of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

Methods: We evaluated associations between 24,734 (SNPs) in 97 FCGR-related genes and survival of 1,185 patients with NSCLC using a published genome-wide association study (GWAS) dataset from the Prostate, Lung, Colorectal and Ovarian (PLCO) Cancer Screening Trial and validated the results in another independent dataset of 894 NSCLC patients.

Newly developed primary malignancies in long-term survivors who underwent curative esophagectomy for squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus.

Surg Today 2021 Jan 7;51(1):153-158. Epub 2020 Jul 7.

Department of Gastroenterological Surgery (Surgery II), Nagoya University Graduate School of Medicine, Nagoya, Japan.

Purpose: We evaluated the efficacy of the long-term follow-up of patients who underwent radical esophagectomy for esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) to screen for recurrence and new primary malignancies.

Methods: We retrospectively collected 448 ESCC patients who underwent radical esophagectomy. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy, computed tomography, a stool test and the assessment of the serum concentration of squamous cell carcinoma antigen and carcinoembryonic antigen were performed annually, even over 5 years after esophagectomy.

Metastatic squamous cell carcinoma transformed from prostatic adenocarcinoma following androgen deprivation therapy: A case report with clinicopathologic and molecular findings.

Diagn Cytopathol 2020 Dec 6;48(12):E14-E17. Epub 2020 Jul 6.

VA Palo Alto Health Care System, Pathology and Laboratory Service, Palo Alto, California, USA.

Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the prostate is a rare and clinically aggressive entity that may arise de novo or through transformation of prostatic adenocarcinoma, typically following hormonal or radiation therapy. Confirmation of prostatic origin, especially when evaluating a metastatic focus, often requires correlation with clinical and imaging findings, as the morphologic and immunohistochemical features of SCC are not organ-specific. Comprehensive genomic profiling (CGP) may provide additional information useful for confirming the primary site and for identifying potential targeted therapy options. Read More

Increased Prostate-Specific Membrane Antigen Uptake in Neurofibromatosis.

Clin Nucl Med 2020 Jun;45(6):465-467

From the Department of Nuclear Medicine, Affiliated Hospital of Southwest Medical University/Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging Key Laboratory of Sichuan Province, Luzhou.

A 51-year-old man with 30-year neurofibromatosis and 2-month elevated prostate-specific antigen and back pain underwent a Ga-prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) PET/CT scan for possible prostate cancer. Prostate-specific membrane antigen PET/CT imaging showed no abnormal uptake of the prostate. However, in addition to PSMA uptake in his left lung, thorax, and right ilium, which was confirmed being a lung squamous cell carcinoma by a lung biopsy, widespread uptake was also observed in his skin fibroma lesions.
