Does Immunohistochemistry Add to Morphology in Differentiating Trichoepithelioma, Desmoplastic Trichoepithelioma, Morpheaform Basal Cell Carcinoma, and Microcystic Adnexal Carcinoma?

Appl Immunohistochem Mol Morphol 2022 Apr;30(4):273-277

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

Background: The distinction among cutaneous basaloid neoplasms such as trichoepithelioma (TE), desmoplastic trichoepithelioma (DTE), morpheaform basal cell carcinoma (MBCC), and microcystic adnexal carcinoma (MAC) can be difficult, especially in superficial biopsies. As the treatment plan of each entity is different, accurate characterization is important for appropriate management. While TE and DTE are benign neoplasms with indolent behavior, MBCC and MAC are typically locally aggressive. Read More

In Vivo Reflectance Confocal Microscopy of Adnexal Tumors: Evaluation of Trichoepithelioma, Sebaceoma, and Fibrofolliculoma.

Am J Dermatopathol 2022 Mar;44(3):190-195

Department of Dermatology, University of São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil.

Abstract: Cutaneous adnexal tumors are benign and malignant neoplasms that undergo morphological differentiation into cutaneous adnexa, comprising pilosebaceous, eccrine, or apocrine units. Reflectance confocal microscopy is a noninvasive diagnostic method that enables in vivo visualization of tissues at a similar resolution as conventional histopathology. The use of this method in skin imaging over the past several years has improved dermatological diagnoses, potentiating its wide application, especially for benign and malignant skin tumors.

Cd34+ Stromal Cells/Telocytes in Normal and Pathological Skin.

Int J Mol Sci 2021 Jul 8;22(14). Epub 2021 Jul 8.

Department of Basic Medical Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, University of La Laguna, 38071 Tenerife, Spain.

We studied CD34+ stromal cells/telocytes (CD34+SCs/TCs) in pathologic skin, after briefly examining them in normal conditions. We confirm previous studies by other authors in the normal dermis regarding CD34+SC/TC characteristics and distribution around vessels, nerves and cutaneous annexes, highlighting their practical absence in the papillary dermis and presence in the bulge region of perifollicular groups of very small CD34+ stromal cells. In non-tumoral skin pathology, we studied examples of the principal histologic patterns in which CD34+SCs/TCs have (1) a fundamental pathophysiological role, including (a) fibrosing/sclerosing diseases, such as systemic sclerosis, with loss of CD34+SCs/TCs and presence of stromal cells co-expressing CD34 and αSMA, and (b) metabolic degenerative processes, including basophilic degeneration of collagen, with stromal cells/telocytes in close association with degenerative fibrils, and cutaneous myxoid cysts with spindle-shaped, stellate and bulky vacuolated CD34+ stromal cells, and (2) a secondary reactive role, encompassing dermatitis-e.

Implication of wide surgical excision in minimizing positive margins and consequential secondary excision - a retrospective comparative study involving 106 basal cell carcinoma cases.

Eur Rev Med Pharmacol Sci 2021 Jun;25(12):4283-4288

Department of Functional Sciences, Physiology, Centre of Immuno-Physiology and Biotechnologies (CIFBIOTEH), "Victor Babes" University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Timisoara, Romania.

Objective: The use of current surgical techniques in the management of skin cancers that are not amenable to other treatment options has become the cornerstone of dermatological surgical intervention. Among the many benign lesions and malignant lesions, such as squamous cell carcinomas, melanomas, and Merkel cell carcinomas, the tumors that are commonly excised surgically are the basal cell carcinomas (BCC). Although the majority of BCC lesions spread locally and are rarely metastatic, these lesions may recur, especially, if the excised tissue consists of positive surgical margins. Read More

Department of Dermatology, Mater Misericordiae Health Services, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

Trichoepithelioma is a rare benign adnexal neoplasm that can occur in various forms including solitary, multiple, familial or nonfamilial. Multiple facial trichoepithelioma can be associated with significant psychosocial burden. Conventional treatment modalities such as surgical excision and ablative laser have variable results and can be associated with unacceptable complications and tumour regrowth. Read More

Morphologically high-grade trichoblastic carcinoma: a clinicopathological study with long-term clinical follow-up.

Histopathology 2021 Jun 6;78(7):970-975. Epub 2021 Apr 6.

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Cumming School of Medicine, University of Calgary, Calgary, AB, Canada.

Aims: Trichoblastic carcinomas (malignant trichoblastomas) are rare and poorly documented neoplasms characterised by malignant transformation of a pre-existing benign trichoblastoma, and are subdivided histologically into low-grade and high-grade tumours. Whereas morphologically low-grade trichoblastic carcinomas show indolent behaviour, morphologically high-grade trichoblastic carcinomas have been associated with a poor prognosis, but little is known about their true biological potential. The aim of this study was to better define the clinicopathological features and outcomes of morphologically high-grade trichoblastic carcinomas. Read More

Glioma-Associated Oncogene-1 Expression in Basal Cell Carcinoma and Its Histologic Mimics.

Am J Dermatopathol 2021 Sep;43(9):637-641

Departments of Pathology.

Abstract: Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common skin cancer, and it has numerous histologic mimics with variable prognoses and treatments. Although some immunohistochemical stains can be used for the differential diagnosis of BCC, variability and overlap in results can complicate their interpretation. Immunohistochemical staining for glioma-associated oncogene-1 (Gli-1) was performed on 26 nodular BCCs, 22 infiltrative BCCs, 9 basaloid squamous cell carcinomas, 12 desmoplastic trichoepitheliomas, 19 Merkel cell carcinomas, 11 sebaceous carcinomas, 10 cylindromas, 14 spiradenomas, 12 adenoid cystic carcinomas (AdCC), and 1 solitary trichoepithelioma.

Desmoplastic Trichoepithelioma: Histopathologic and Immunohistochemical Criteria for Differentiation of a Rare Benign Hair Follicle Tumor From Other Cutaneous Adnexal Tumors.

Cureus 2020 Aug 12;12(8):e9703. Epub 2020 Aug 12.

Pathology, South Bend Medical Foundation, South Bend, USA.

Desmoplastic trichoepitheliomas (DTEs) are benign cutaneous neoplasms that originate from the hair follicle and exhibit a preference for the facial region. This type of neoplasm is characterized by accelerated growth, with vigorous histologic and immunohistochemical features that may be confused with other skin cancers. Thus, the objective of this study is to establish a definitive diagnosis that can be widely used. Read More

Basal cell carcinoma misdiagnosed as trichoepithelioma.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Hallym University Sacred Heart Hospital, Hallym University College of Medicine, Anyang, Korea.

Trichoepithelioma is a benign hair follicle tumor that can undergo malignant transformation into basal cell carcinoma in rare cases. Due to the similar clinical and histological features of trichoepithelioma and basal cell carcinoma, distinguishing between these types of tumors can be a diagnostic challenge. Punch biopsy obtains only a small sample of the entire lesion, and thus inherently involves a risk of misdiagnosis between histologically similar diseases. Read More
