Mod Pathol 2021 Apr 6. Epub 2021 Apr 6.

Department of Pathology, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY, USA.

Lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS) is currently classified as classic (CLCIS), florid (FLCIS), and pleomorphic (PLCIS). Given the rarity of FLCIS and PLCIS, information on their clinico-pathologic features and biologic potential remains limited. We evaluated the upgrade rates at excision of FLCIS and PLCIS diagnosed on inhouse core needle biopsy (CNB) and their clinical presentation and follow-up. Read More

The Imbalance of Circulating Follicular T Helper Cell Subsets in Primary Sjögren's Syndrome Associates With Serological Alterations and Abnormal B-Cell Distribution.

Front Immunol 2021 19;12:639975. Epub 2021 Mar 19.

Division of Clinical Immunology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Debrecen, Debrecen, Hungary.

Since B-cell hyperactivity and pathologic antibody response are key features in the immunopathogenesis of primary Sjögren's syndrome (pSS), the role of follicular T helper (T) cells as efficient helpers in the survival and differentiation of B cells has emerged. Our aim was to investigate whether a change in the balance of circulating (c)T subsets and follicular regulatory T (T) cells could affect the distribution of B cells in pSS. Peripheral blood of 38 pSS patients and 27 healthy controls was assessed for the frequencies of cT cell subsets, T cells, and certain B cell subpopulations by multicolor flow cytometry. Read More

Unusual Tissue - Unusual Issue: Pancreatic Heterotopia Presenting as Gastric Outlet Obstruction.

Case Rep Gastroenterol 2021 Jan-Apr;15(1):338-343. Epub 2021 Mar 11.

Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Department of Internal Medicine, Gundersen Health System, La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA.

Pancreatic heterotopia (PH) is a common, but typically small (<1 cm), incidental and asymptomatic finding; however, PH should be considered even for large and symptomatic upper gastrointestinal masses. A 27-year-old white woman presented with a 3-week history of burning epigastric pain, nausea, early satiety, and constipation. Physical examination revealed epigastric and right upper quadrant tenderness with normal laboratory workup, but imaging revealed a 5-cm, partly cystic mass arising from the gastric antrum with resulting pyloric stenosis and partial gastric outlet obstruction.

CRISPR/Cas9 generated knockout mice lacking phenylalanine hydroxylase protein as a novel preclinical model for human phenylketonuria.

Sci Rep 2021 Mar 31;11(1):7254. Epub 2021 Mar 31.

Genomic Medicine Unit, Sanofi, 49 New York Avenue, Framingham, MA, 01701, USA.

Phenylketonuria (PKU) is an autosomal recessive inborn error of L-phenylalanine (Phe) metabolism. It is caused by a partial or complete deficiency of the enzyme phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH), which is necessary for conversion of Phe to tyrosine (Tyr). This metabolic error results in buildup of Phe and reduction of Tyr concentration in blood and in the brain, leading to neurological disease and intellectual deficits. Read More

Morphologic and Molecular Aspects of Glioblastomas.

Neurosurg Clin N Am 2021 Apr;32(2):149-158

Laboratory of Pathology, National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health, Building 10, Room 2S235 Bethesda, MD 20892, USA. Electronic address:

The definition of glioblastomas has continually evolved from a reliance on strict morphologic features to a combination of histologic and molecular criteria, as the understanding of the genetic basis of these tumors expands. Modern pathologic workup of glioblastomas includes intraoperative evaluations with tissue-sparing techniques, histologic assessment with immunohistochemical markers, and comprehensive molecular characterization aiming at personalized targeting of genetic abnormalities. Machine learning analysis of DNA methylation profiles is a breakthrough technology that has bolstered central nervous system tumor classification and discovery and is particularly beneficial for the diagnosis and subtyping of glioblastomas.

Neutrophil-Associated Inflammatory Changes in the Pre-Diabetic Pancreas of Early-Age NOD Mice.

Front Endocrinol (Lausanne) 2021 10;12:565981. Epub 2021 Mar 10.

Institute of Cellular Therapeutics, Allegheny Health Network, Pittsburgh, PA, United States.

A growing body of evidence indicates that neutrophils are the first major leukocyte population accumulating inside the pancreas even before the onset of a lymphocytic-driven impairment of functional beta cells in type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1D). In humans, pancreata from T1D deceased donors exhibit significant neutrophil accumulation. We present a time course of previously unknown inflammatory changes that accompany neutrophil and neutrophil elastase accumulation in the pancreas of the non-obese diabetic (NOD) mouse strain as early as 2 weeks of age.
