A case of multiple familial trichoepitheliomas responding to treatment with the Hedgehog signaling pathway inhibitor vismodegib.

Virchows Arch 2018 Jun 22. Epub 2018 Jun 22.

Department of Dermatology, Paracelsus Medical University Nuremberg, Prof.-Ernst Nathan Straße 1, 90419, Nürnberg, Germany.

Multiple familial trichoepitheliomas (MFT) is an autosomal dominantly inherited disease characterized by multiple skin appendage tumors. We describe a patient showing a continuous spectrum of follicular differentiated neoplasms including classical trichoepitheliomas but also infiltrative growing and finally metastasizing malignant follicular differentiated tumors. Germline mutation analysis revealed a nonsense mutation in the cylindromatosis (CYLD) gene. Read More

Basal Cell Carcinoma Mimicking Desmoplastic Trichoepithelioma: A Case with Correlation of Dermoscopy and Histology.

Case Rep Dermatol 2018 May-Aug;10(2):133-137. Epub 2018 May 18.

Dermatology Clinic, University Hospital Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland.

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common cancer in humans worldwide. Many highly specific dermoscopic criteria for BCC are well established in the literature. On the contrary, other malignant or benign skin tumors may mimic BCC by exhibiting similar or even the same dermoscopic features and therefore obscuring the diagnosis of BCC in certain situations.

Diagnostic Accuracy of Immunohistochemical Markers in Differentiation between Basal Cell Carcinoma and Trichoepithelioma in small Biopsy Specimens.

J Cutan Pathol 2018 Jun 19. Epub 2018 Jun 19.

Dermatology Department, Faculty of medicine, Zagazig University.

Background: The distinction of trichoepithelioma from basal cell carcinoma in small superficial biopsies is important but often challenging. This has inspired many scientists to test the validity of immunohistochemical markers in the differential diagnosis.

Objectives: to develop an immunohistochemical protocol that helps in differentiation between both TE and BCC with higher sensitivity and specificity. Read More

Differential diagnostic significance of epithelial and stromal CD10 expression in tumors of trichogenic origin.

J Dtsch Dermatol Ges 2018 Jun;16(6):719-728

Department of Dermatology, Venereology and Allergology, University Medical Center, Würzburg, Germany.

Background And Objectives: The histological differential diagnosis between benign trichogenic skin tumors and basal cell carcinoma may be challenging. We therefore set out to investigate whether expression of CD10, a cell surface protein with neutral endopeptidase activity, might be a suitable marker for the histological differential diagnosis of trichogenic skin tumors.

Patients And Methods: We immunohistochemically analyzed 119 cases of benign trichogenic skin tumors and basal cell carcinoma. Read More

Cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma With Sclerosing Features: An Uncommon and Potentially Aggressive Variant.

Am J Dermatopathol 2018 May 8. Epub 2018 May 8.

Department of Pathology, Section of Dermatopathology, University of Virginia Health System, Charlottesville, VA.

Sclerosing squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), also known as "desmoplastic" SCC, is a rare subtype of cutaneous malignancy. This variant is clinically significant because it is associated with an increased risk of local recurrence and metastasis. We herein present 16 examples of sclerotic SCC of the skin in 8 men and 3 women, with a median age of 66 years. Read More

Utility of Ber-EP4 and MOC-31 in Basaloid Skin Tumor Detection.

Appl Immunohistochem Mol Morphol 2018 Apr 7. Epub 2018 Apr 7.

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

Ber-EP4 has been the traditional immunostain used for the detection of basaloid skin tumors. Recently, MOC-31 has shown be superior to Ber-EP4 in the detection of basosquamous basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and many centers are now using both Ber-EP4 and MOC-31 antibodies together to detect these lesions. The objective of this study was to compare the utility of using both Ber-EP4 and MOC-31 immunostains in the detection of basaloid skin tumors and to better characterize the previously unknown staining properties of MOC-31 in cutaneous lesions.

Collision Tumor between Trichofolliculoma and Melanocytic Nevus.

Int J Trichology 2017 Oct-Dec;9(4):181-183

Department of Pathology, Clínica Las Condes, Santiago, Chile.

Trichofolliculoma (TF) is a hamartomatous hair follicle-related tumor, clinically described as a dome-shaped papule with a central pore crossed by one or more silky white hairs. Histologically, it described as a cystic cavity containing keratinous debris, hair shaft fragments, and numerous hair follicles arising from its linings. Collision or compound tumors are a coexistence of two or more identifiable tumors in the same lesion. Read More

Histologic Mimics of Basal Cell Carcinoma.

Arch Pathol Lab Med 2017 Nov;141(11):1490-1502

From the Departments of Pathology (Drs Stanoszek, Wang, and Harms) and Dermatology (Dr Harms), University of Michigan Medical School, Ann Arbor. Drs Stanoszek and Wang contributed equally.

Context: - Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common human malignant neoplasm and is a frequently encountered diagnosis in dermatopathology. Although BCC may be locally destructive, it rarely metastasizes. Many diagnostic entities display morphologic and immunophenotypic overlap with BCC, including nonneoplastic processes, such as follicular induction over dermatofibroma; benign follicular tumors, such as trichoblastoma, trichoepithelioma, or basaloid follicular hamartoma; and malignant tumors, such as sebaceous carcinoma or Merkel cell carcinoma.

Trichilemmal carcinomas are rare malignant adnexal tumors which can involve the head and, rarely, the eyelid. Accurate diagnosis and differentiation from basal cell carcinoma or trichoepithelioma are dependent on histopathological and immunohistochemical analysis.

Nuclear GATA3 expression was seen in 70% (153/220) of cases, including sebaceous carcinoma (93%), apocrine carcinoma (93%), follicular neoplasms (100%), and predominantly apocrine neoplasms (69%), yet only 38% of predominantly eccrine neoplasms.

Trichoepitheliomas (TE) are benign tumours but occasionally can undergo transformation to malignant neoplasms more commonly as Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC).
