Identification of mutant K-RAS in pituitary macroadenoma.

Pituitary 2021 May 5. Epub 2021 May 5.

Laboratório de Biomedicina do Cérebro, Instituto Estadual do Cérebro Paulo Niemeyer, Rua do Rezende156-Centro, Rio de Janeiro, 20231-092, Brazil.

Purpose: RAS genes are among the most frequently mutated genes in cancer, where their mutation frequency varies according to the distinct RAS isoforms and tumour types. Despite occurring more prevalent in malignant tumours, RAS mutations were also observed in few benign tumours. Pituitary adenomas are examples of benign tumours which vary in size and aggressiveness.

Should Adrenal Venous Sampling Be Performed in PA Patients Without Apparent Adrenal Tumors?

Front Endocrinol (Lausanne) 2021 12;12:645395. Epub 2021 Apr 12.

Department of Endocrinology and Metabolism, National Hospital Organization Kyoto Medical Center, Kyoto, Japan.

Introduction: Some aldosterone-producing micro-adenomas cannot be detected through image inspection. Therefore, adrenal venous sampling (AVS) is often performed, even in primary aldosteronism (PA) patients who have no apparent adrenal tumors (ATs) on imaging. In most of these cases, however, the PA is bilateral. Read More

Macroprolactin: From laboratory to clinical practice.

Endocrinol Diabetes Nutr 2021 Apr 23. Epub 2021 Apr 23.

Servicio de Análisis Clínicos, Hospital Universitario Severo Ochoa, Leganés, Madrid, España. Electronic address:

Prolactin measurement is very common in standard clinical practice. It is indicated not only in the study of pituitary adenomas, but also when there are problems with fertility, decreased libido, or menstrual disorders, among other problems. Inadequate interpretation of prolactin levels without contextualizing the laboratory results with the clinical, pharmacological, and gynecological/urological history of patients leads to erroneous diagnoses and, thus, to poorly based studies and treatments.

Cancer Cytopathol 2021 Apr 26. Epub 2021 Apr 26.

Department of Pathology, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC), Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Background: Some thyroid nodules cytologically presenting as follicular neoplasm, Hürthle cell (Oncocytic) type (FNHCT), are not oncocytic tumors and represent autonomously functioning thyroid nodules (AFTNs) with TSHR, GNAS, and EZH1 mutations or oncocytic metaplasia. A to be defined subset of FNHCT harbors genome haploidisation-type DNA copy number alterations (GH-CNA). Molecular profiling of FNHCT may distinguish oncocytic neoplasms from its mimics. Read More

Pan-TRK Immunohistochemistry Is Highly Correlated With NTRK3 Gene Rearrangements in Salivary Gland Tumors.

Am J Surg Pathol 2021 Apr 23. Epub 2021 Apr 23.

Department of Pathology, Centre Henri Becquerel INSERM 1245, Rouen Normandy Uniiversity Department of Pathology, Rouen University Hospital, Rouen Platform of Experimental Pathology, Department of Diagnostic and Theranostic Medicine, Curie Institute Department of Pathology, Lariboisière Hospital, Paris, France.

Aims: Secretory carcinoma (SC) is characterized by ETV6 rearrangements, most often ETV6-NTRK3 fusion. Given its histologic overlap with other salivary gland tumors (SGTs), SCs can be difficult to diagnose without genetic confirmation. A recently developed pan-TRK (tropomyosin receptor kinase) antibody shows promise for identifying tumors with NTRK (neurotrophic tyrosine kinase receptor 3) fusions. Read More

Impact of simethicone on bowel cleansing during colonoscopy in Chinese patients.

World J Clin Cases 2021 Apr;9(10):2238-2246

Department of Gastroenterology, The Central Hospital of Wuhan, Tongji Medical College, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan 430014, Hubei Province, China.

Background: Four-liter polyethylene glycol (PEG) solutions are effective for bowel cleansing, but their large volume might hinder patient compliance. Due to the unique features of Asians, 4 L PEG might be a suboptimal bowel preparation in predominantly ethnically Asian countries. In view of this, a balance should be achieved between the volume and effectiveness. Read More
