Beyond Smooth Muscle-Other Mesenchymal Neoplasms of the Uterus.

Surg Pathol Clin 2019 Mar 24;12(1):107-137. Epub 2018 Dec 24.

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Mount Sinai Hospital, 600 University Avenue, Toronto, Ontario M5G 1X5, Canada; Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Electronic address:

Mesenchymal tumors of the uterus comprise a heterogeneous group of neoplasms of varied biologic potential. In addition to being host to several anatomically unique entities, the uterus may contain mesenchymal neoplasms typically found elsewhere in the body. Although smooth muscle neoplasms are common, other mesenchymal neoplasms in this location are relatively rare. Read More

Morcellation-Induced Leiomyomatosis Peritonealis Disseminata: A Rare Case Report.

Iran J Med Sci 2019 Jan;44(1):60-64

Department of Pathological Anatomy, Faculty of Medicine, Medical Academy Named After S.I. Georgievsky, V.I. Vernadsky Crimean Federal University, Simferopol, Russia.

Leiomyomatosis peritonealis disseminata (LPD) is a benign disease characterized by the presence of multiple small nodules on the omentum, parietal, and visceral peritoneum. It corresponds to leiomyoma and often resembles metastases of malignant tumors; however, with favorable prognosis. Here we describe a 46-year-old woman, diagnosed with LPD, to demonstrate the etiopathogenesis of the developed leiomyomatosis following endoscopic extirpation of the uterus with the use of a power morcellator.

An update on clonality: what smooth muscle cell type makes up the atherosclerotic plaque?

F1000Res 2018 21;7. Epub 2018 Dec 21.

Center for Developmental Biology and Regenerative Medicine, Seattle Children's Hospital Research Institute, Seattle, WA, 98112, USA.

Almost 50 years ago, Earl Benditt and his son John described the clonality of the atherosclerotic plaque. This led Benditt to propose that the atherosclerotic lesion was a smooth muscle neoplasm, similar to the leiomyomata seen in the uterus of most women. Although the observation of clonality has been confirmed many times, interest in the idea that atherosclerosis might be a form of neoplasia waned because of the clinical success of treatments for hyperlipemia and because animal models have made great progress in understanding how lipid accumulates in the plaque and may lead to plaque rupture.

Low-grade endometrial stromal sarcoma combined with leiomyoma (stromomyoma): A bizarre tumor of the uterus in a premenopausal woman.

J Exp Ther Oncol 2018 Nov;12(4):281-286

University of Health Sciences, Zekai Tahir Burak Women's Health Education and Research Hospital, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Division of Gynecologic Oncology, Ankara, Turkey.

Objective: Uterine sarcomas are very rare malignancies, and when a hysterectomy is performed for benign causes, a risk of about 1/500 is mentioned for possible uterine sarcomas. Endometrial stromal neoplasms are a rare subgroup of uterine sarcomas that account for less than 10% of all uterine sarcomas. Mixed endometrial stromal and smooth muscle tumors, also known as stromomyomas, are defined as having at least 30% each of endometrial stromal and smooth muscle components. Read More

Uterine sarcomas.

Int J Gynaecol Obstet 2018 Oct;143 Suppl 2:51-58

Department of Pathology, Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, Autonomous University of Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain.

Uterine sarcomas account for approximately 3%-7% of all uterine cancers. Since carcinosarcomas are currently classified as metaplastic carcinomas, leiomyosarcomas remain the most common subtype. Exclusion of several histologic variants of leiomyoma, as well as atypical smooth muscle tumors (so-called "smooth muscle tumors of uncertain malignant potential"), has highlighted that the vast majority of leiomyosarcomas are high-grade tumors associated with poor prognosis even when apparently confined to the uterus.

Department of Veterinary Pathology and Research Institute for Veterinary Science, College of Veterinary Medicine, Seoul National University, Seoul 08826, Republic of Korea.

A 13-year-old female scimitar-horned oryx (Oryx dammah) died after progressive anorexia, weight loss, and depression. The necropsy showed that the retroperitoneum was compressed by a large white-to-tan uterine mass and on several sections of the mass, the uterine wall was markedly thickened because of ill-defined transmural tumor tissue. Metastatic nodules were detected in the omentum, mesentery, diaphragm, and lung. Read More

Expanding upon the Human Myometrial Stem Cell Hypothesis and the Role of Race, Hormones, Age, and Parity in a Profibroid Environment.

Am J Pathol 2018 Oct 1;188(10):2293-2306. Epub 2018 Aug 1.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Illinois, Chicago, Illinois. Electronic address:

Uterine fibroids (UFs) are clonal, hormonally regulated, benign smooth-muscle myometrial tumors that severely affect female reproductive health, although their unknown etiology limits effective care. UFs occur fourfold more commonly in African American women than in Caucasian women, and African American women generally have earlier disease onset and greater UF tumor burden, although the mechanism of this ethnic disparity has not been identified. Recent findings have linked cancer (ie, tumor) risk to increased tissue-specific stem cell division and self-renewal and suggest that somatic mutations in myometrial stem cells (MyoSCs) convert them into tumor-initiating cells, leading to UF.

Genome profiling is an efficient tool to avoid the STUMP classification of uterine smooth muscle lesions: a comprehensive array-genomic hybridization analysis of 77 tumors.

Mod Pathol 2018 05 12;31(5):816-828. Epub 2018 Jan 12.

Department of Biopathology, Institut Bergonié, Comprehensive Cancer Centre, Bordeaux, France.

The diagnosis of a uterine smooth muscle lesion is, in the majority of cases, straightforward. However, in a small number of cases, the morphological criteria used in such lesions cannot differentiate with certainty a benign from a malignant lesion and a diagnosis of smooth muscle tumor with uncertain malignant potential (STUMP) is made. Uterine leiomyosarcomas are often easy to diagnose but it is difficult or even impossible to identify a prognostic factor at the moment of the diagnosis with the exception of the stage. Read More

Reduction of Uterine Perfusion Pressure Induced Redistribution of Endothelin Receptor Type-B Between the Intima and Media Contributes to the Pathogenesis of Pregnancy-Induced Hypertension.

Cell Physiol Biochem 2017 6;44(5):1715-1725. Epub 2017 Dec 6.

Department of Vascular Surgery, People's Hospital of Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, Yinchuan, China.

Background/aims: Studies have shown that a change in endothelin receptor expression in the artery is related to pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH). However, the mechanism underlying this change remains unclear.

Methods: To test whether the distribution of endothelin receptor type-A (ETAR) and type-B (ETBR) plays an important role in PIH, a reduction of uterine perfusion pressure (RUPP) rat model was used to mimic some of the features of PIH; the resulting variable endothelin receptor expression was investigated in the media and intima of the aorta.

ERα36, a variant of estrogen receptor α, is predominantly localized in mitochondria of human uterine smooth muscle and leiomyoma cells.

PLoS One 2017 11;12(10):e0186078. Epub 2017 Oct 11.

Molecular Pathogenesis Group, National Toxicology Program Laboratory (NTPL), National Toxicology Program, National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), National Institutes of Health (NIH), Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, United States of America.

ERα36 is a naturally occurring, membrane-associated, isoform of estrogen receptor α. The expression of ERα36 is due to alternative splicing and different promoter usage. ERα36 is a dominant-negative effector of ERα66-mediated transactivational activities and has the potential to trigger membrane-initiated mitogenic, nongenomic, estrogen signaling; however, the subcellular localization of ERα36 remains controversial.
