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

Department of Pathology, Brooke Army Medical Center, San Antonio, USA.

The salivary gland tumors are rare entities and the majority of these are benign. However, there are some entities such as prior neck radiation, certain infections, and systemic diseases which should raise the clinical suspicion for a malignant lesion. Patients with Sjogren syndrome are at increased risk for a salivary gland neoplasm, specifically non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Read More

Release of secretory immunoglobulin A by submandibular gland via β adrenergic receptor stimulation.

Arch Oral Biol 2021 Jul 14;129:105209. Epub 2021 Jul 14.

Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Department of Veterinary Medicine, College of Bioresource Sciences, Nihon University, 1866 Kameino, Fujisawa, Kanagawa, 252-0880, Japan. Electronic address:

Objective: Secretory immunoglobulin A (sIgA) is important for mucosal immunity due to the inhibition of pathogen infection. The submandibular gland is known to secrete more sIgA than the parotid and sublingual glands. In this study, we focused on the relationship between the secretion of accumulated intracellular sIgA and β-adrenergic receptor stimulation, and clarified the autonomic regulatory mechanism of sIgA secretion in submandibular gland cells using dispersed gland cells.

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

Deformable image registration to assist clinical decision for radiotherapy treatment adaptation for head and neck cancer patients.

Biomed Phys Eng Express 2021 Jul 15. Epub 2021 Jul 15.

Inst of Communication & Computer Systems, National Technical University of Athens, 9, Iroon Polytechniou Str., Zografos, 15773 Athens, Athens, 15773, GREECE.

Head and neck (H&N) cancer patients often present anatomical and geometrical changes in tumors and organs at risk (OARs) during radiotherapy treatment. These changes may result in the need to adapt the existing treatment planning, using an expert's subjective opinion, for offline adaptive radiotherapy and a new treatment planning before each treatment, for online adaptive radiotherapy. In the present study, a fast methodology is proposed to assist in planning adaptation clinical decision using tumor and parotid glands percentage volume changes during treatment. Read More

Malignant salivary gland tumours: Single-centre experience of 108 patients.

Clin Otolaryngol 2021 Jul 14. Epub 2021 Jul 14.

Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, London, UK.

●A functioning facial nerve is a critical structure that limits the margin of resection in parotid malignancies. There was no difference in disease-free survival with close or negative resection margins. ●Microscopic positive (R1) resection margins were associated with poorer disease free survival, but this was not statistically significant, implying that more functional and less radical surgery may be acceptable when followed by adjuvant therapy.
