Computed tomography-guided transfacial buccal space core biopsy of deep head and neck space lesions: our experience.

Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2021 Apr 21. Epub 2021 Apr 21.

Departments of Clinical Radiology, Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth, UK.

Deep head and neck space lesions can present a number of diagnostic challenges due to their deep anatomical position and difficult access for diagnostic tissue sampling. We describe a series of percutaneous 'transfacial' buccal space computed tomography (CT)-guided core biopsies of these lesions and subsequent histological findings. Six patients underwent CT-guided core biopsy of deep parotid, parapharyngeal, or masticator space lesions over a 30-month period. Read More

DICER1-Mutated Botryoid Fibroepithelial Polyp of the Parotid Duct: Report of the First Case.

Head Neck Pathol 2021 Jul 19. Epub 2021 Jul 19.

Institute of Pathology, Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU), University Hospital Erlangen (UKER), Krankenhausstrasse 8-10, 91054, Erlangen, Germany.

DICER1, a member of the ribonuclease III family, is involved in the biogenesis of microRNAs and, hence, it influences gene expression regulation. DICER1 germline (associated with the inherited DICER1 syndrome) or somatic mutations have been linked to tumorigenesis in histogenetically diverse benign and malignant neoplasms in different organs including pleuropulmonary blastoma, cystic nephroma, embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma, nasal chondromesenchymal hamartoma, poorly differentiated thyroid carcinoma, thyroblastoma, intracranial sarcoma and gonadal Sertoli-Leydig cell tumors in addition to others. Moreover, rare botryoid (giant) fibroepithelial polyps may harbor this mutation. Read More

Synchronous occurrence of IgG4-related sialadenitis and ductal carcinoma of the parotid gland: a case report.

Gland Surg 2021 Jun;10(6):2069-2075

Department of Surgery, School of Medicine, University of Seville, Seville, Spain.

Immunoglobulin G4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is a rare chronic systemic inflammatory pathology that poses a diagnostic challenge since it can simulate malignancy when it affects a salivary gland as a mass-like lesion. Here, the authors report an unusual clinical case of a 42-year-old man who presented with a painless, slow-growing swelling located in the right parotid gland with a 12-month evolution. Based on imaging tests and open biopsy, a diagnosis of chronic parotitis was presumed and oral methylprednisolone was prescribed. Read More

Cureus 2021 Jun 2;13(6):e15383. Epub 2021 Jun 2.

Internal Medicine, Jersey Shore University Medical Center/Saint Francis Medical Center Program, Trenton, USA.

Salivary gland tumors are relatively uncommon with most being benign. When diagnosed the most common benign and malignant tumors are pleomorphic adenoma and mucoepidermoid carcinoma (MEC), respectively. However, not uncommonly, it is difficult to differentiate between the histopathological entities, leading to a diagnostic dilemma that can impact a patient's treatment and prognosis. Read More

Endocrine Mucin Producing Sweat Gland Carcinoma with Metastasis to Parotid Gland: Not as Indolent as Perceived?

Head Neck Pathol 2021 Jun 28. Epub 2021 Jun 28.

Department of Pathology, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Ansari Nagar, New Delhi, 110029, India.

Endocrine mucin-producing sweat gland carcinoma (EMPSCG) is a rare, low-grade cutaneous adnexal neoplasm with evidence of neuroendocrine differentiation, predominantly involving the eyelids of elderly. It has a striking resemblance to solid papillary carcinoma of breast which similarly displays neuroendocrine features. EMPSGC is considered a precursor of cutaneous mucinous carcinoma, and the term "mucinous carcinoma" is also recommended for hybrid lesions which reveal an invasive mucinous component associated with EMPSGC.

Head Neck Pathol 2021 Jun 23. Epub 2021 Jun 23.

Department of Pathology (Anatomic Pathology), The University of Chicago Medicine, Chicago, USA.

In the absence of clear pathologic differences, clinical history may differentiate potential primary parotid squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) from metastases. The presence of an ultraviolet (UV) signature can distinguish between tumors of cutaneous and non-cutaneous origin. This study aimed to investigate rates of UV signature mutations in squamous cell carcinomas of the parotid gland as well as differences in clinical features between tumors of cutaneous and non-cutaneous origin.

A Study to Assess the Dosimetric Impact of the Anatomical Changes Occurring in the Parotid Glands and Tumour Volume during Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy using Simultaneous Integrated Boost (IMRT-SIB) in Head and Neck Squamous Cell Cancers.

Cancer Med 2021 Jun 22. Epub 2021 Jun 22.

Toxicology and Experimental Medicine Division, CSIR-Central Drug Research Institute, Lucknow, India.

Background: Anatomical variations in head and neck cancer during IMRT leads to volume shrinkage, results in dosimetric variations in tumour and normal tissue including parotid glands, with a risk of radiation toxicities.

Methods: 30 patients with a stage II-IV head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) were treated with definitive IMRT-SIB and concomitant chemotherapy. Volumetric and dosimetric variations were evaluated during the period of IMRT by recalculating and obtaining dose-volume histograms of re-contoured target volumes and parotid glands on repeat CT scans taken multiple times during treatment (CT1, CT2, CT3 and CT4).

Glandular metastases from renal cell carcinoma show poor clinical responses to immune checkpoint inhibition but durable responses to angiogenesis inhibitors.

BMJ Case Rep 2021 Jun 22;14(6). Epub 2021 Jun 22.

Department of Medicine, Division of Hematology and Oncology, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University, Chicago, Illinois, USA

While half of the metastatic clear cell renal cell carcinomas (ccRCCs) involve the lungs, metastatic lesions have been described in various other organs, including glandular tissues such as the pancreas. Recent evidence suggests that ccRCC lesions affecting the pancreas are poorly responsive to immune checkpoint inhibition (ICI) but show superior responses to tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) targeting the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) signalling pathway. However, this has yet to be explored in ccRCC spreading to other glandular tissues. Read More
