Inter-observer Variability in the Diagnosis of Proliferative Verrucous Leukoplakia: Clinical Implications for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon Understanding: A Collaborative Pilot Study.

Head Neck Pathol 2019 Apr 10. Epub 2019 Apr 10.

Southern California Permanente Medical Group, Woodland Hills Medical Center, Woodland Hills, CA, USA.

The use of diverse terminology may lead to inconsistent diagnosis and subsequent mistreatment of lesions within the proliferative verrucous leukoplakia (PVL) spectrum. The objectives of this study were: (a) to measure inter-observer variability between a variety of pathologists diagnosing PVL lesions; and (b) to evaluate the impact of diverse terminologies on understanding, interpretation, and subsequent treatment planning by oral and maxillofacial surgeons (OMFS). Six oral pathologists (OP) and six head and neck pathologists (HNP) reviewed 40 digitally scanned slides of PVL-type lesions. Read More

Diagnostic utility of microsurgical carbon dioxide laser excision of oral potentially malignant lesions vs incisional biopsy: a retrospective histopathological review.

Oral Surg Oral Med Oral Pathol Oral Radiol 2018 Dec 14. Epub 2018 Dec 14.

Faculty of Dentistry, The University of Sydney, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia; Department of Oral Medicine Oral Pathology and Special Care Dentistry,Level 3, Westmead Centre for Oral Health, Westmead Hospital, Westmead, New South Wales, Australia.

Objective: Complete excision of oral potentially malignant lesions (OPMLs) could result in improved and earlier detection of more severe grades of oral epithelial dysplasia and/or frank malignancy. Transoral microsurgical carbon dioxide laser techniques allow for resection of OPMLs, even those that are extensive. The advantages are improved diagnostic yield, improved viability of the specimen for pathologic evaluation, reduced postoperative morbidity, and easier postoperative clinical surveillance. Read More

Expanded Expression of Toll-Like Receptor 2 in Proliferative Verrucous Leukoplakia.

Head Neck Pathol 2019 Mar 19. Epub 2019 Mar 19.

Dental College of Georgia, Augusta University, GC2250 1430 JW Gilbert Dr., Augusta, GA, 30912, USA.

Proliferative verrucous leukoplakia (PVL) is a premalignant condition of the oral mucosa with > 70% chance of progression to squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), while lacking the common risks and behavior seen in non-PVL oral squamous carcinogenesis. PVL follows a multi-stage slow, relentless and usually multifocal expansion of surface epithelial thickening that over time takes on a verrucous architecture, eventually leading to verrucous carcinoma and/or dysplasia followed by "conventional" SCC, a process that takes years and is notoriously difficult to manage. As mucosal surfaces and carcinomas arising at these sites, are colonized by microorganisms, host receptors for microbial products have received attention as potential contributors to carcinogenesis.

Oral Epithelial Dysplasia and Premalignancy.

Authors:
Sook-Bin Woo

Head Neck Pathol 2019 Mar 18. Epub 2019 Mar 18.

Harvard School of Dental Medicine, Boston, MA, USA.

Leukoplakia and erythroplakia are two entities under the moniker of "oral potentially malignant disorders" that are highly associated with the presence of oral epithelial dysplasia (OED) at first biopsy, while lesions of submucous fibrosis develop OED after being present for years. Importantly, traumatic/frictional keratoses are often mistaken clinically for leukoplakia and it is important for the pathologist to recognize and report them as such. The features of OED have been well-described and other architectural features will be discussed here, in particular verrucous and papillary architecture, bulky epithelial proliferation and epithelial atrophy.

Epidemiological and Histopathological Aspects of Tongue Squamous Cell Carcinomas-Retrospective Study.

Curr Health Sci J 2018 Jul-Sep;44(3):211-224. Epub 2018 Jul 15.

Department of Clinical Pharmacology, University of Medicine and Pharmacy of Craiova, Romania.

Tongue squamous cell carcinoma is one of the most commonly diagnosed intraoral squamous cell carcinomas (25-40%), being considered an aggressive form of squamous cell carcinoma, as it is most commonly associated with lymph node metastases and the survival rate at five years is below 50%. In according with these data, we have proposed in this study to individualize an epidemiological and histopathological profile of the patients with such oral cancers, diagnosed and treated in the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Clinic and in the Otolaryngology Surgery Clinic of the Emergency Clinical County Hospital Craiova, between 2015-2017. The cases were histopathologically reassessed according to the latest WHO classification of head and neck tumors, the variables of interest being the age of the patients, the gender, the lesion topography, the histological subtype, the degree of tumor differentiation, the pTNM stage, the resection margin status and the Brandwein-Gensler prognostic score.

Non-urothelial carcinomas involving the bladder are uncommon and often diagnostically challenging. These carcinomas may show squamous, adenocarcinomatous or neuroendocrine features, with immunohistochemical stains aiding the diagnosis in only a subset of cases. The clinical history in non-urothelial bladder carcinomas is important, given that the differential diagnosis often includes secondary involvement of the bladder by direct extension or metastasis from carcinomas at other sites.

Part 2 of this 2-part continuing medical education series discusses the clinical and histopathologic features of common premalignant and malignant lesions of the oral cavity. It is imperative for dermatologists to be able to recognize suspicious lesions, determine biopsy need, counsel, and refer patients presenting with premalignant or malignant conditions appropriately. Given the higher rates of mortality and morbidity of oral mucosal malignancies due to late diagnosis, appropriate treatment with multidisciplinary care in a timely manner is essential to these neoplasms.

Human papillomavirus infection is not involved in esophageal verrucous carcinoma.

Hum Pathol 2019 Mar 10;85:50-57. Epub 2018 Nov 10.

Department of Medicine, Surgical Pathology Unit, University of Padua, Padua, 35121 Italy.

Verrucous carcinoma of the esophagus (VCE) is a rare variant of squamous cell cancer, with a puzzling clinical, etiological, and molecular profile. The etiological involvement of human papillomavirus (HPV) in the cancer's natural history is controversial. This study considers 9 cases of VCE, focusing on patients' clinical history before surgery, histologic phenotype, immunophenotype (epidermal growth factor receptor [EGFR], E-cadherin, cyclin D1, p16, and p53 expression), HPV infection, and TP53 gene mutational status (exons 5-8).

Human papilloma virus and genitourinary cancers: a narrative review.

Minerva Urol Nefrol 2018 Dec 29;70(6):579-587. Epub 2018 Aug 29.

Unit of Urology, University of Pisa, Pisa, Italy -

Introduction: Human papilloma virus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted pathogen and its potential role in the genesis of several diseases such as cervical, head and neck, anal and penile cancers, is now largely recognized. Aim of this review article was to evaluate and summarize the state of the art of HPV-related urogenital cancers, focusing on the potentially innovative methods for the diagnosis of infection that should be used to improve viral causative detection and prevent its diffusion through sexual intercourses.

Evidence Acquisition: The initial search was carried out by using the Medline and the Google Scholar computerized databases through the selected key-words to identify the more recent literature on HPV epidemiology and its relationship with the main relevant urinary tract cancers. Read More

The Role of Human Papillomaviruses and Polyomaviruses in BRAF-Inhibitor Induced Cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma and Benign Squamoproliferative Lesions.

Front Microbiol 2018 14;9:1806. Epub 2018 Aug 14.

Centre for Cell Biology and Cutaneous Research, Blizard Institute, Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry, Queen Mary University of London, London, United Kingdom.

Human papillomavirus (HPV) has long been proposed as a cofactor in the pathogenesis of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC). More recently, the striking clinico-pathological features of cSCCs that complicate treatment of metastatic melanoma with inhibitors targeting BRAF mutations (BRAFi) has prompted speculation concerning a pathogenic role for oncogenic viruses. Here, we investigate HPV and human polyomaviruses (HPyV) and correlate with clinical, histologic, and genetic features in BRAFi-associated cSCC. Read More

First case report of malignant peritoneal mesothelioma and oral verrucous carcinoma in a patient with a germline PTEN mutation: a combination of extremely rare diseases with probable further implications.

BMC Med Genet 2018 08 15;19(1):144. Epub 2018 Aug 15.

Institute of Medical Genetics and Applied Genomics, University of Tübingen, Calwerstr. 7, 72076, Tübingen, Germany.

Background: The PTEN-hamartoma-tumor-syndrome (PHTS) is caused by germline mutations in Phosphatase and Tensin homolog (PTEN) and predisposes to the development of several typical malignancies. Whereas PTEN mutations have been implicated in the occurrence of malignant mesotheliomas, the genetic landscape of verrucous carcinomas (VC) is largely uncharted. Both VC and malignant peritoneal mesotheliomas (MPM) are exceedingly rare and a potential link between these malignancies and PHTS has never been reported. Read More
