  • [Title] Adenoid cystic carcinoma of the buccal vestibule: A case report and review of the literature.
  • Minor salivary gland tumors of the buccal vestibule are relatively rare.
  • Adenoid cystic carcinoma is the fifth most common salivary gland malignancy following mucoepidermoid carcinoma, adenocarcinoma not otherwise specified (NOS), acinic cell adenocarcinoma and polymorphous low-grade adenocarcinoma (PLGA).
  • Greater than half of adenoid cystic carcinomas occur in the parotid and submandibular glands.
  • Adenoid cystic carcinoma tends to have a protracted clinical course with wide infiltration and late distant metastases.
  • We present a case of an adenoid cystic carcinoma of the buccal vestibule in a 59-year-old Caucasian female patient that she had been aware of for 15 years.

  • [Title] Intraoral minor salivary gland tumors: a clinicopathological study of 82 cases.
  • We present a retrospective study of 82 patients with intraoral minor salivary gland tumors which were diagnosed from 1979 to 2003 in Gifu University Hospital.
  • A total of 82 tumors, consisting of 55 benign and 27 malignant tumors, were found in 28 male and 54 female Japanese patients; the male-to-female ratio was 1:1.9.
  • The tumors affected the palate (n = 64), the buccal region (n = 10), the upper lip (n = 6), the floor of the mouth (n = 1), and the retromolar region (n = 1).
  • Histologically, the tumors were classified as pleomorphic adenoma (n = 54), papillary cystadenoma (n = 1), adenoid cystic carcinoma (n = 10), mucoepidermoid carcinoma (n = 8), acinic cell carcinoma (n = 3), adenocarcinoma (n = 2), basal cell adenocarcinoma (n = 1), papillary cystadenocarcinoma (n = 1), and carcinoma in pleomorphic adenoma (n = 2).
  • From the results of the present study and review of the literature, it is suggested that the minor salivary gland tumors in Japan may be characterized by a higher incidence of benign tumors, especially of pleomorphic adenoma; a more marked tendency for female predominance; a higher incidence of palatal involvement; and a rarer occurrence of polymorphous low grade adenocarcinoma, in comparison with those reported in the literature from outside of Japan.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • An initial fine needle aspiration of the pancreatic mass was nondiagnostic, and a subsequent fine needle aspiration of a liver mass was read as metastatic acinar cell carcinoma.
  • The patient underwent a palliative resection for tumor-associated pain and gastrointestinal hemorrhage that revealed a large pancreatic tumor invading through the full thickness of the colon at the splenic flexure and adherent to the posterior gastric wall.
  • The pathology from the distal pancreatectomy, splenectomy, partial gastrectomy, partial colectomy, and cholecystectomy unexpectedly supported a diagnosis of pancreatoblastoma with evidence for squamoid corpuscles as well as areas of acinar formation.
  • Despite multiple chemotherapy regimens, the patient's disease continued to progress in the liver and the lungs.
  • During the course of his therapy, the patient's serum alpha-fetoprotein levels and serum lipase levels rose concurrently, suggesting tumor-associated production of both of these factors.
  • Seventeen months after the diagnosis of metastatic pancreatoblastoma, the patient died from his disease.
  • Our case illustrates the fact that pancreatoblastomas are extremely difficult to diagnosis preoperatively.

  • [Title] Acinic cell carcinoma with extensive neuroendocrine differentiation: a diagnostic challenge.
  • Primary salivary gland carcinoma with neuroendocrine differentiation is of rare occurrence, especially so in the parotid gland.
  • Amongst the various reported primary tumors with neuroendocrine differentiation, acinic cell carcinoma (ACC) one such tumor.
  • Contrast Enhanced Computed Tomography (CECT) suggested diagnosis of Pleomorphic Adenoma.
  • Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FANC) yielded a cystic fluid suggesting a possibility of Warthin's tumor or Oncocytic lesion.
  • Intraoperative findings were suggestive of a Warthin's tumor.
  • Initial histopathological examination of the tumor was suggestive of neuroendocrine carcinoma.
  • Immunoexpression of S-100, Neuron specific Enolase (NSE), Chromogranin A and Synaptophysin confirmed the diagnosis.
  • The possibility of neuroendocrine differentiation in a primary salivary gland tumor should be kept in mind whenever a salivary gland tumor shows only neuroendocrine histology.

  • [Title] Acinar cell carcinoma of the pancreas in a young patient with chronic pancreatitis.
  • BACKGROUND: Acinar cell carcinoma (ACC) is a rare malignancy of the pancreas arising from acinar cells.
  • Unlike ductal adenocarcinoma, this tumor rarely presents with pancreatitis.
  • METHODS: We present a case of ACC associated with chronic calcifying pancreatitis, and a review of the literature focusing on diagnosis and management.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The clinical presentation of ACC of the pancreas is not specific and the tumor can be under-diagnosed when associated with chronic pancreatitis.
  • Data regarding course, treatment, and prognosis of this tumor are generally lacking.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • There were 5 false negatives: 2 adenoid cystic carcinomas, 1 acinic cell carcinoma, 1 polymorphous low grade adenocarcinoma and 1 metastatic basaloid squamous cell carcinoma.
  • The only false positive was a pleomorphic adenoma misdiagnosed as adenoid cystic carcinoma.
  • Five benign neoplasms were interpreted as reactive processes, including 2 Warthin's tumors, 2 sebaceous lymphoadenomas and 1 pleomorphic adenoma.
  • The overall accuracy in distinguishing benign from malignant lesions was 79.1%, and the sensitivity for salivary neoplasia was 89.4%.
  • CONCLUSION: Our results are consistent with the literature that salivary gland FNA has good sensitivity, specificity and accuracy in the diagnosis of salivary neoplasms.

  • [Title] Acinic cell carcinoma of salivary gland with massive deposits of globular amyloid.
  • We present the case of a 23-year-old woman with a parotid gland tumor, the fine-needle aspiration biopsy smears of which showed epithelial cells with wide cytoplasm, isolated or arranged in micropapillary groups together with psammoma bodies.
  • The surgical specimen contained a 5-cm tumor with the histologic features of an acinic cell carcinoma (ACC) with papillary areas.
  • Notably, the cells of the tumor seemed to follow a sequence from large cells with rounded nuclei with open chromatin and prominent nucleoli to vacuolated cells with granular material, and finally to cells undergoing apoptosis.
  • This finding was followed by the appearance of concentrically laminated, round to polygonal, Congo red-positive, birefringent bodies that in areas accumulated and formed extensive areas with massive deposits.

  • [Title] Determinants of survival in parotid gland carcinoma: a population-based study.
  • Kaplan-Meier survival analysis was conducted for the most common tumor histologies.
  • Subset analysis was conducted for mucoepidermoid carcinoma according to grade.
  • Mean tumor size at diagnosis was 2.7 cm; 38.0% of patients had extraglandular extension of the tumor, 26.8% of patients had positive nodal disease, and 59.4% of patients received radiation therapy.
  • Tumor histology did predict survival, with squamous cell carcinoma and acinar cell carcinoma exhibiting the poorest and best survivals, respectively.
  • Stratified Cox proportional hazards modeling revealed that increasing age, tumor size, grade, extraglandular extension, and nodal positivity significantly negatively influenced survival (all P<or=.001); radiation therapy conferred a survival benefit (P=.090), whereas gender did not significantly affect survival.
  • Increasing tumor grade, nodal disease, and extraglandular extension carried particularly high hazards ratios.
  • Patients with multiple poor prognostic features such as extraglandular extension, aggressive tumor histologies, and nodal disease will exhibit poorer survivals and may be candidates for more aggressive treatment protocols.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Two cases of 18 F-FDG PET/CT findings in acinar cell carcinoma of the pancreas.
  • The patients consisted of a 60-year-old woman and a 72-year-old man with no significant symptoms, who were both referred to the hospital due to the presence of large pancreatic tumors.
  • They underwent F-18 FDG PET/CT and subsequently a pancreaticoduodenectomy and acinar cell carcinoma in the pancreas was proven histopathologically.
  • In one case, the tumor consisted of a solid component presenting intense FDG uptake and necrotic tissue.
  • In another case, the tumor consisted of cystic and papillary components presenting with weak FDG uptake.
  • This report thus documents 2 cases of acinar cell carcinoma that showed contrasting histopathologic and F-18 FDG PET/CT findings.

  • The tumours included pleomorphic adenoma (n = 24), myoepithelioma (n = 9), papillary cystadenoma (n = 3), oncocytoma (n = 2), adenoid cystic carcinoma (n = 22), mucoepidermoid carcinoma (n = 21), polymorphous low-grade adenocarcinoma (n = 21), carcinoma ex-pleomorphic adenoma (n = 11), acinic cell carcinoma (n = 17), epimyoepithelial carcinoma (n = 7), oncocytic carcinoma (n = 3), hyalinizing clear cell carcinoma (n = 1), papillary cystadenocarcinoma (n = 1), salivary duct carcinoma (n = 3), adenocarcinoma (not otherwise specified) (n = 4) and squamous carcinoma (n = 4).
  • Squamous carcinoma showed negative CK7/20 immunoexpression.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although the CK7/20 immunoprofile is not useful in distinguishing the various types of salivary gland neoplasms or between benign and malignant salivary gland tumours, it may facilitate differentiation of primary salivary gland neoplasia from metastatic tumours and squamous carcinoma, and the diagnosis of metastatic salivary gland tumours.

  • [Title] Occult primary parotid gland acinic cell adenocarcinoma presenting with extensive lung metastasis.
  • Acinic cell adenocarcinoma is a malignant salivary gland neoplasm with a relatively low rate of lymphangitic spread to regional lymph nodes.
  • We encountered an unusual example of acinic cell adenocarcinoma that initially presented in the lung, whereas the primary parotid carcinoma, despite extensive clinical evaluation, only became apparent 1 year after initial diagnosis.
  • The histologic, immunohistochemical, and ultrastructural features of the tumor in the parotid gland and lung were similar.
  • The tumor displayed an aggressive behavior resulting in death within 2 years of the initial presentation.
  • This presentation is unique, showing that peripheral lung tumors of salivary gland type are likely to be metastatic, and careful clinical evaluation is warranted in establishing their primary site of origin.

  • [Title] The monoclonal anti-BCL10 antibody (clone 331.1) is a sensitive and specific marker of pancreatic acinar cell carcinoma and pancreatic metaplasia.
  • Acinar cell carcinoma (ACC) is a rare pancreatic cancer which may be difficult to distinguish from other solid nonadenocarcinoma tumors.
  • The diagnosis depends on the demonstration of acinar differentiation, obtained with antibodies recognizing various pancreatic enzymes that, although specific, show different sensitivity.
  • The C-terminal portion of the BCL10 protein shows homology with carboxyl ester hydrolase (CEH), an enzyme produced by pancreatic acinar cells.
  • We investigated the usefulness of a C-terminal BCL10 monoclonal antibody in the diagnosis of ACCs.
  • We examined normal pancreases and different pancreatic tumors including ACCs, mixed acinar-endocrine carcinomas, ductal adenocarcinomas, mucinous, serous, solid pseudopapillary, and endocrine neoplasms.
  • In addition, various normal tissues and cases of pancreatic metaplasia of the gastroesophageal mucosa, cases of ectopic pancreas, gastrointestinal endocrine tumors, salivary and breast acinic cell carcinomas, gastric adenocarcinomas with and without acinar differentiation, and hepatocellular carcinomas were studied.
  • BCL10 immunoreactivity paralleled that of CEH and was restricted to acinar cells of normal and ectopic pancreas, of pancreatic metaplasia, and of ACCs.
  • We suggest using BCL10 antibody for diagnosing pancreatic tumors and whenever an acinar differentiation is suspected in gastrointestinal neoplastic and metaplastic lesions.

  • [Title] Immunohistochemical analysis of nestin and c-kit and their significance in pancreatic tumors.
  • The purpose of the present study was to clarify the difference of expression of two stem cell markers, nestin and c-kit, among various pancreatic epithelial tumors and evaluate their utility.
  • Immunohistochemistry was done for 99 surgically resected pancreatic tumor specimens, including 20 ductal adenocarcinoma (DAC), two undifferentiated carcinomas (UC), 31 intraductal papillary-mucinous neoplasms (IPMN), six mucinous cystic neoplasms (MCN), five serous cystadenomas (SCA), six acinar cell carcinomas, two pancreatoblastoma (PB), eight solid-pseudopapillary neoplasms (SPN), and 19 endocrine neoplasms (EN).
  • The eight c-kit-positive IPMN included four of 23 adenoma-to-border lesions and four of eight non-invasive-to-invasive carcinomas.
  • The three EN were all carcinomas.
  • These indicate that expression of two stem cell markers is different by tumor type, but the utility of judging direction or degree of differentiation and malignant grade on the basis of their expression status is suggested.

  • [Title] Does 18F-FDG PET/CT play a role in the differential diagnosis of parotid masses.
  • METHODS: The potential role of 18F-FDG PET/CT in distinguishing benign from malignant parotid masses in 14 consecutive patients was investigated.
  • For To interpreting FDG PET findings, the right to left parotid (R/L) SUV max ratio was calculated in a group of 54 patients without evidence of parotideal disease (mean+/-SD = 1+/-0.2; range = 0.8-1.2); considering the R/L SUV max ratio, focal or diffuse uptakes <0.8 or >1.2 were considered as potentially pathological.
  • At FDG PET/CT, 9 false positive cases were found (8 Warthin's tumours, 1 pleomorphic adenoma), 1 false negative (acinar cell carcinoma), 4 true negative (1 Warthin's tumour, 1 pleomorphic adenoma, 1 lymph epithelial cyst, 1 parotid inflammation) whereas there was no case of true positive.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In agreement with other preliminary reports in which the FDG PET without CT fusion imaging was used, in our experience 18F-FDG PET/CT did not prove to play a significant role in differential diagnosis (benign vs malignant) of parotid masses.

  • The development of acinic cell carcinoma in the parotid glands of these animals was also reduced coincident with decreased stromal involvement during progression.
  • Gefitinib eliminated phosphorylation of HER2 and HER3 and signaling through MAPK and Akt in lobular hyperplasias and carcinomas.

  • [Title] Cytomorphologic patterns in papillary cystic variant of acinic cell carcinoma of the salivary gland.
  • OBJECTIVE: To study the cytomorphologic profile of the papillary and cystic variant of acinic cell carcinoma (ACC-PCV) of the salivary glands.
  • However, common to all was a papillary pattern and a cystic fluid background with or without mucin blobs; that led to misdiagnosing the tumor as mucoepidermoid carcinoma on 2 occasions.
  • The granular cells were similar to those seen in the usual acinic cell carcinoma but were smaller.
  • The tumor did not show any acinar pattern and lacked naked nuclei in the background.
  • CONCLUSION: ACC-PCV is papillary and cystic and hence is often not recognized as acinic cell carcinoma.
  • However, papillary fragments of vacuolated cells or histiocytelike cells and granular cells are clues to the diagnosis.

  • [Title] Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas with cystic features: neither rare nor uniform.
  • Cystic tumors of the pancreas are uncommon but important because of their diverse pathology and biology.
  • Their wide spectrum also includes cystic variants of otherwise solid tumors, such as cystic endocrine tumors, cystic acinar cell carcinomas and ductal adenocarcinomas with cystic changes.
  • In this study, we screened pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas and their variants for macrocystic changes and determined the nature of the cysts (neoplastic vs non-neoplastic).
  • Of 483 tumors 38 (8%) had cystic features.
  • The largest group consisted of 24 pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas showing a large-gland pattern with small cysts whose diameter varied between 0.5 and 1.8 cm.
  • The second group of cystic tumors (8/483) showed degenerative cystic cavities with diameters ranging between 1 and 6 cm.
  • This group consisted of poorly differentiated pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas, undifferentiated carcinomas with or without osteoclast-like giant cells and one adenosquamous carcinoma.
  • In the third group of cystic tumors there were four pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas containing tumor-related retention cysts.
  • The fourth group consisted of two pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas showing closely attached pseudocysts caused by tumor-associated pancreatitis.
  • The results indicate that a considerable number of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas and their variants display cystic features and must therefore be considered in the differential diagnosis of cystic neoplasms of the pancreas.

  • [Title] Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration cytology diagnosis of solid pseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas: a case report and literature review.
  • We describe the clinical, imaging and cytopathological features of solid pseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas (SPTP) diagnosed by endoscopic ultrasound-guided (EUS-guided) fine-needle aspiration (FNA).
  • EUS-FNA cytology specimens consisted of single cells and aggregates of uniform malignant cells, forming microadenoid structures, branching, papillary clusters with delicate fibrovascular cores and nuclear overlapping.
  • The nuclei of malignant cells were round or oval, eccentric with fine granular chromatin, small nucleoli and nuclear grooves in some of them.
  • The malignant cells were periodic acid Schiff (PAS)-Alcian blue (+) and immunocytochemically they were vimentin (+), CA 19.9 (+), synaptophysin (+), chromogranin (-), neuro-specific enolase (-), a1-antitrypsin and a1-antichymotrypsin focal positive.
  • Biopsy confirmed the above cytologic diagnosis.
  • EUS-guided FNA diagnosis of SPTP is accurate.
  • EUS findings, cytomorphologic features and immunostains of cell block help distinguish SPTP from pancreatic endocrine tumors, acinar cell carcinoma and papillary mucinous carcinoma.

  • [Title] From Krukenberg to today: the ever present problems posed by metastatic tumors in the ovary. Part II.
  • This is the second of a two-part consideration of metastatic tumors to the ovary.
  • The first tumor discussed is gastric carcinoma of intestinal-type whose ovarian manifestations have been the subject of a recent paper which emphasized its differences from the Krukenberg tumor.
  • Coverage of intestinal adenocarcinoma emphasizes the landmark 1987 paper of RH Lash and WR Hart.
  • The section on pancreatic neoplasms reemphasizes the problems caused by metastatic ductal carcinoma, considered primarily in Part I, and discusses less common issues such as spread of neuroendocrine and acinar cell carcinomas.
  • The limited information on spread of tumors of the gallbladder and extrahepatic bile ducts is then reviewed before more detailed consideration of hepatic neoplasms, prompted by recent contributions on hepatocellular carcinoma and intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma, the latter based on significant experience with this problem in Thailand.
  • The section on appendiceal neoplasms highlights ovarian spread of diverse tumors ranging from typical intestinal-type adenocarcinoma to signet-ring cell carcinomas with various patterns which in the ovary may prompt diagnoses such as a goblet cell (mucinous) carcinoid tumor, but whose ovarian features place them in the category of a Krukenberg tumor.
  • The diverse problems in differential diagnosis of carcinoid tumor (provoked by nested, acinar, and other patterns, including folliclelike spaces) are then reviewed.
  • The section on breast cancer emphasizes that, although usually a manifestation of late stage disease and often not bulky in the ovaries, metastatic breast cancer may form large masses which can represent the clinical presentation.
  • The section on lung tumors largely reflects information in a recent paper that small cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma are the lung cancers that spread to the ovary most commonly.
  • The extremely broad differential diagnosis posed by metastatic malignant melanoma ranging from that of an oxyphilic tumor, to a small cell tumor, to a follicle-forming neoplasm, is then considered.
  • The sections on renal cell carcinoma and other urinary tract neoplasms emphasize the differential diagnosis of metastatic clear cell carcinoma and primary clear cell carcinoma, an issue usually resolvable by an awareness of the various features of the ovarian variant, rarely or never seen in the renal variant.
  • The endometrial stromal tumors are problematic largely because the history of a primary tumor may be remote, in the ovaries the typical growth and vascular pattern of endometrial stromal neoplasms is not always conspicuous, and some endometrial stromal sarcomas in the ovary show sex cordlike patterns of growth.
  • Recent information has indicated that gastrointestinal stromal tumors may rarely have significant ovarian manifestations and if the primary neoplasm is overlooked, the ovarian tumor may be misdiagnosed, usually as an ovarian fibromatous tumor, but potentially as another primary neoplasm.
  • The sections on ovarian spread of uterine carcinomas emphasize the problems owing to cervical adenocarcinomas, which have a greater tendency to involve the ovaries than squamous cell carcinomas and can simulate primary mucinous or endometrioid cancers.
  • The final neoplasms considered are malignant mesothelioma and the desmoplastic small round cell tumor.
  • The microscopic features of malignant mesothelioma are so different from those of primary ovarian carcinoma in most instances that the diagnosis should be readily established on routine microscopic evaluation.
  • The differential diagnosis of the desmoplastic small round cell tumor is more complex because of the greater overlap with the many other small cell malignant tumors that may involve the ovaries primarily or secondarily.
  • However, as pointed out in brief concluding remarks, despite the aid of that modality, as in surgical pathology overall, careful consideration of the clinical background, distribution of disease, gross characteristics and spectrum of routine microscopic findings, will lead to the correct diagnosis in the majority of cases and at the very least lead to formulation of a considered differential diagnosis such that use of special techniques may be judicious and those results placed in context of the time-honored clinical and pathologic features.

  • [Title] Adenoid cystic/basal cell carcinoma of the prostate: review and update.
  • CONTEXT: Although most prostate carcinomas are of the conventional acinar type, unusual variants have been reported.
  • Adenoid cystic/basal cell carcinoma of the prostate is a rare tumor with distinctive histopathologic features.
  • There are only a few publications in the literature concerning the diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of this neoplasm.
  • OBJECTIVE: To review current literature together with the clinical, pathologic, and immunohistochemical features of adenoid cystic/basal cell carcinoma of the prostate and offer a practical approach to the diagnosis--including the differential diagnosis--of this neoplasm in surgical pathologic specimens.
  • DATA SOURCES: Adenoid cystic/basal cell carcinoma of the prostate is composed of infiltrating basaloid cells forming dilated acinar and cribriform spaces with luminal basementlike material.
  • Differentiation of adenoid cystic/basal cell carcinoma from basal cell hyperplasia and cribriform pattern of acinar adenocarcinoma may be difficult.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Various histologic and immunohistochemical features are helpful in recognizing adenoid cystic/basal cell carcinoma of the prostate.
  • This is a rare subtype of prostate cancer and correct diagnosis is important because of the unique clinical and biological features and the implications for treatment and prognosis.

  • The aim of the present study was to evaluate the signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT3) expression, which is constitutively active in different types of malignant tumours, in salivary gland tumours.
  • Fifty biopsies of salivary gland tumours (9 pleomorphic adenomas, 12 adenoid cystic carcinomas, 7 epithelial-myoepithelial carcinomas, 10 polymorphous low-grade adenocarcinomas and 12 mucoepidermoid carcinomas) and 10 normal salivary glands were immunohistochemically labeled for STAT3 and Phospho-STAT3 (STAT3P).
  • The results showed that, in normal salivary gland, STAT3 was expressed in cytoplasm and STAT3P in nuclei of all tissue cells, except in large mucous acinar cells for which both antibodies were negative.
  • In malignant tumours, there were variations in the expression of these antibodies.
  • The most important one was the presence of STAT3 in the nuclei of the malignant tumour cells, most evident in the cribriform-type of adenoid cystic carcinoma.
  • The presence of STAT3 in the nuclei of malignant salivary gland tumours may represent an important event in oncogenesis probably contributing to tumour cell proliferation while blocking apoptosis.

  • [Title] Characterization of ETS gene aberrations in select histologic variants of prostate carcinoma.
  • Histologic variants of prostate carcinoma account for 5-10% of the disease and are typically seen in association with conventional acinar carcinoma.
  • Recently, recurrent gene fusions between the androgen-regulated gene TMPRSS2 and the ETS transcription factors ERG, ETV1, ETV4, or ETV5 have been identified in a majority of conventional prostate carcinomas.
  • However, the frequency and significance of this critical molecular event is unknown in the histologic variants of prostate carcinoma.
  • Here, we used break-apart fluorescence in situ hybridization to assess TMPRSS2 and ETS aberrations in a series of select histologic variants: foamy gland carcinoma (N=17), ductal adenocarcinoma (N=18), mucinous carcinoma (N=18), and small cell carcinoma (N=7).
  • A histologic variation of acinar adenocarcinoma, demonstrating glomeruloid morphology (N=9), was also investigated.
  • TMPRSS2:ERG fusion was identified in 83% (15/18), 71% (5/7), 50% (9/18), 33% (3/9), and 29% (5/17) of mucinous, small cell, ductal, glomeruloid, and foamy gland prostate carcinomas, respectively.
  • Previously, we reported that 100% of androgen-independent metastatic prostate carcinomas harboring TMPRSS2:ERG gene fusion were associated with interstitial deletion (Edel).
  • Interestingly, ERG rearrangement in small cell carcinomas occurred exclusively through Edel, supporting the notion that TMPRSS2:ERG with Edel is an aggressive molecular subtype.
  • SPINK1, a biomarker expressed exclusively in a subset of ETS negative prostate carcinomas, was expressed in 6% of ETS negative histologic variants, specifically in ductal adenocarcinoma.
  • Notably, 88% (43/49) variant morphologies in this cohort showed concordance of TMPRSS2:ERG fusion with associated conventional acinar type, suggesting that variant morphology is clonally related to the latter.
  • Overall, our data provide insight into the origin, molecular mechanism, and phenotypic association of ETS fusions in histologic variants of prostate carcinoma.

  • [Title] Human kallikrein 6 expression in salivary gland tumors.
  • The aim of this study was to determine whether hK6 is expressed in salivary gland tissues and salivary gland tumors (both benign and malignant), using an immunohistochemical method.
  • Pleomorphic adenomas (PA), adenoid cystic carcinomas, polymorphous low-grade adenocarcinomas, acinic cell carcinomas, mucoepidermoid carcinomas, and adenocarcinomas not otherwise specified of both minor and major salivary glands were examined.
  • In all other tumors exhibiting both types of cells, hK6 staining was similar in both duct-like and non-duct-like cells.
  • Tumors that exhibited non-duct-like cells only also exhibited cytoplasmic staining.
  • Results of this study show that salivary gland tumors express hK6, apparently downregulated in comparison with normal salivary gland tissue, and that this expression is not specific for any of the tumors studied.

  • [Title] Histological progression of small intrapulmonary metastatic tumor from primary lung adenocarcinoma.
  • To clarify the morphological features of early metastatic tumor progression, we analyzed the histological heterogeneity of many small intrapulmonary metastases.
  • Histological typing based on the World Health Organization classification (bronchioloalveolar carcinoma, acinar, papillary, and solid subtype) was used to evaluate 234 metastases from the primary lung adenocarcinomas of 139 patients.
  • The predominant subtype of metastasis 3 mm or less in diameter was bronchioloalveolar carcinoma when the primary lesion was diagnosed as predominant bronchioloalveolar carcinoma, acinar, and papillary subtype.
  • When the histology of the primary tumor was predominantly a solid subtype, the predominant subtype of metastatic tumor was also a solid subtype.
  • However, analysis of metastases that were more than 3 mm showed that the predominant subtype of the metastasis reflected the predominant subtype of the primary tumor.
  • Furthermore, we evaluated the number of subtypes in primary and metastatic tumors.
  • These findings suggest that implanted cancer cells display lepidic growth in the early metastatic phase and recapitulate the morphological heterogeneity of the original tumor as the metastasis enlarges.

  • Caveolin-1 (Cav-1) is a major structural protein of caveolae, specialized plasma membrane invaginations that are involved in a cell-specific fashion in diverse cell activities such as molecular transport, cell adhesion, and signal transduction.
  • However, epithelial Cav-1 overexpression is associated with development and/or progression of many carcinomas.
  • In this study, we generated and characterized a transgenic mouse model of Cav-1 overexpression under the control of a mouse mammary tumor virus (MMTV) long terminal-repeat promoter, which is predominantly expressed in specific epithelial cells.
  • Cav-1 overexpression in MMTVcav-1(+) mice produced organ-specific abnormalities, including hypotrophy of mammary glandular epithelia, bronchiolar epithelial hyperplasia and atypia, mucous-cell hyperplasia in salivary glands, elongated hair follicles and dermal thickening in the skin, and reduced accumulation of enzymogen granules in pancreatic acinar cells.
  • In addition, the MMTVcav-1(+) transgenic mice tended to have a greater incidence of malignant tumors, including lung and liver carcinomas and lymphoma, than their MMTVcav-1(-) littermates.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma is thought to develop through a series of genetic events through its purported precursor lesion, pancreatic intraepithelial neoplasia (PanIN).
  • All pancreata resected at the University of Virginia from June 1, 1991 to March 1, 2005 for neoplasia not diagnosed as conventional ductal adenocarcinoma were reviewed and classified according to the World Health Organization's classification schema for tumors of the exocrine and endocrine pancreas.
  • Three acinar cell carcinomas (ACCs), 18 mucinous cystic neoplasms (MCNs), 24 pancreatic endocrine tumors (PETs), 12 serous cystadenomas (SCs), and 3 solid-pseudopapillary tumors (SPTs) were identified.
  • Although the high prevalence of PanIN in pancreata concomitantly harboring certain uncommon neoplasms of the pancreas could signify its role as a precursor lesion for those neoplasms, its high prevalence throughout our series may simply be the result of a coincidental, prevalent finding seen in all pancreata, especially with aging.
  • Because of the ubiquitous nature of PanIN, it should not be used histologically to assist in the diagnosis and subclassification of pancreatic neoplasia.

  • [Title] [Clinical characteristics of prostatic adenocarcinoma with ductal features].
  • PURPOSE: To determine the incidence and prognosis of prostatic ductal adenocarcinoma.
  • We differentiated prostatic cases of ductal adenocarcinoma that were larger than 5 mm in diameter from cases of acinar adenocarcinomas.
  • RESULTS: We found eight cases (12%) of prostatic ductal adenocarcinoma among the 64 cases treated with radical prostatectomies.
  • Seven of the cases (11%) were mixed-type ductal adenocarcinomas, which contained acinar and ductal components.
  • In addition, one case was identified as pure ductal adenocarcinoma.
  • During the follow-up period, four of the eight cases of ductal adenocarcinoma (50%) and twelve of the 56 cases of acinar adenocarcinoma (21%) showed postoperative PSA failure.
  • CONCLUSIONS: We identified eight cases of ducal adenocarcinoma (12% of the examined cases), which suggests this disease is not as rare as previously reported.
  • Compared to the cases of acinar adenocarcinoma, the cases of ductal adenocarcinoma were at a more advanced pathological stage and resulted in a higher rate of postoperative PSA failure.
  • Therefore, we believe that patients that show even a limited degree of ductal adenocarcinoma should receive aggressive therapy.

  • [Title] Pancreatic ducts as an important route of tumor extension for acinar cell carcinoma of the pancreas.
  • Acinar cell carcinoma (ACC) of the pancreas is very rare, which usually grows expansively.
  • We reviewed the detailed gross and histologic features of 13 cases of ACC, of which 7 (54%) showed intraductal polypoid growth (IPG) of the tumor in the large pancreatic ducts with a mean IPG length of 24.8 mm.
  • Tumors with IPG were found to spread characteristically along the pancreatic ducts as extending polypoid projections, filling the ducts and destroying the duct walls, although tumors did not tend to extend beyond the pancreatic parenchyma.
  • Comparison of the clinicopathologic characteristics showed that ACC with IPG had less infiltrative features including lymphatic, venous, and neural invasion, formation of tumor thrombus in the portal vein, nodal metastasis, and invasion beyond the pancreas to the surrounding organs; death in only 1 case (14%) of ACC with IPG was the result of ACC itself.
  • In contrast, ACC without IPG frequently showed more infiltrative growth, and was the cause of death in 50% of patients with this type of tumor.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Microadenocarcinoma (MA) of the pancreas is a rare kind of neoplasm, whose status as an independent tumor entity is still a matter of controversy.
  • Cells of MA were morphologically uniform and were less pleomorphic than those of the ductal adenocarcinoma.
  • Immunohistochemistry revealed that MA, though with a certain extent of epithelial differentiation, possesses a different immunological phenotype from those of ductal carcinoma, acinar cell carcinoma, and endocrine tumors.
  • Genetic analysis showed no abnormality of p53, K-ras, and beta-catenin, which were usually mutated in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma.
  • CONCLUSION: Therefore, we suggest that MA should be taken as an independent tumor entity rather than a kind of growth pattern, but a final decision should be reached after cautious differential diagnosis of other kinds of pancreatic neoplasms.

  • [Title] High-grade prostatic intraepithelial neoplasialike ductal adenocarcinoma of the prostate: a clinicopathologic study of 28 cases.
  • Most of the prostatic ductal adenocarcinomas of the prostate are characterized by cribriform and/or papillary architecture lined by columnar pseudostratified malignant epithelium.
  • We report 28 cases of ductal adenocarcinomas on needle biopsy and transurethral resection of prostate closely resembling high-grade prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia (HGPIN) composed of simple glands with flat, tufting, or micropapillary architecture.
  • Prostate specific antigen serum level at diagnosis ranged from 1.2 to 12.1 ng/mL.
  • Three patients had recent biopsies without information on treatment and 3 patients were lost to follow-up after diagnosis.
  • The number of cores involved by tumor in each case ranged from 1 to 18, with more than 1 core involved in 13 cases.
  • In radical prostatectomies, tumor was primarily composed of small (25%), medium (17%), or cystically dilated (58%) cancer glands, with all cases demonstrating a mixture of different gland sizes.
  • Cytologically, tumors were characterized by tall columnar atypical cells, basally located nuclei, and amphophilic cytoplasm.
  • The tumors lacked marked pleomorphism, necrosis, solid areas, cribriform formation, or true papillary fronds.
  • In the radical prostatectomy specimens, tumor volumes ranged from a small focus (less than 0.01 cm3) to 1.2 cm3.
  • Concurrent conventional acinar Gleason score 6 adenocarcinomas were seen in 6 of the 9 radical prostatectomy cases, in all cases as separate nodules from the PIN-like ductal adenocarcinomas.
  • Only one of the PIN-like ductal adenocarcinomas at radical prostatectomy had extraprostatic extension, which was focal.
  • PIN-like ductal adenocarcinoma differs from HGPIN by the presence of cystically dilated glands, a greater predominance of flat architecture, and less frequently prominent nucleoli.
  • Although usual ductal adenocarcinoma is considered comparable to Gleason score 8, PIN-like ductal adenocarcinoma was accompanied by Gleason score 6 acinar carcinoma and behaved similar to Gleason score 6 acinar cancer.
  • Recognition of this entity is critical to differentiate it from both HGPIN and conventional ductal adenocarcinoma.

  • [Title] Prognostic relevance of cell proliferation in major salivary gland carcinomas.
  • Several proliferation markers, such as DNA ploidy, Ki67, MiB1 and proliferating cell nuclear antigen have been shown to correlate with clinical course and prognosis in several epithelial tumours and lymphomas.
  • In the present study, the prognostic relevance of these markers was evaluated in major salivary gland carcinomas.
  • A sample of 36 cases out of 85 patients submitted to surgery for major salivary gland carcinomas at our institution between 1987 and 1997 were studied.
  • The sample comprised 8 adenoid-cystic carcinomas, 6 ductal carcinomas, 11 mucoepidermoid carcinomas and 11 acinic cell carcinomas.
  • Instead, the proliferative tumour cell fraction, evaluated by MiB1, was statistically correlated with prognosis.
  • Of particular interest were MiB1 values in acinic cell carcinomas for which grading is challenging and lacks consensus.
  • In our group of acinic cell carcinomas, survival correlated with values of MiB1 > or < 15 with p = 0.009 in Log rank test.
  • Indeed, "growth fraction" in acinic cell carcinomas may stratify different classes of risk.

  • All smears were evaluated according to cell size, amount of cytoplasm, cytologic atypia and presence of lymphocytes. (a) Variable cytologic appearances of pleomorphic salivary adenoma were observed. (b) Cellular pleomorphic adenoma and adenoid cystic carcinoma showed basaloid cell features. (c) Tumours with intermediate size cells and bland cytology included low grade muco-epidermoid carcinoma and cystic lesions. (d) Warthin's tumour, oncocytoma, salivary duct carcinoma and high grade muco-epidermoid carcinoma revealed large cells and abundant cytoplasm with or without atypia.
  • A major diagnostic categories were inflammatory lesions (n = 7 5), cystic lesions (n = 9), benign tumours (n = 81), malignant neoplasms (n = 1 8) and normal acinar pattern (n = 2).
  • Malignant tumours included muco-epidermoid carcinoma (n = 5), adenoid cystic carcinoma (n = 3), acinic cell carcinoma (n = 2), adenocarcinoma (n= 2), squamous cell carcinoma (n = 1), undifferentiated carcinoma (n= 4) and malignant lymphoma (n = 1).
  • Histopathological correlation was possible in 40% of benign and 80% of malignant neoplasms.
  • So it can be concluded that fine needle aspiration cytology can play important role in early diagnosis and subsequent therapeutic planning of salivary gland lesions.

  • [Title] Pancreatic tumors in children and adolescents: the Italian TREP project experience.
  • INTRODUCTION: Malignant pancreatic tumors are exceedingly rare in pediatric age and their clinical features and treatment usually go unappreciated by most pediatric oncologists and surgeons.
  • METHODS: From January 2000 to July 2009, 21 patients <18 years old with pancreatic tumors were prospectively registered in the Italian cooperative TREP project dedicated to very rare pediatric tumors.
  • RESULTS: Tumor types were 4 pancreatoblastomas, 2 pancreatic carcinomas, 3 neoplasms of the endocrine pancreas, and 12 solid pseudopapillary tumors.
  • Three of the four patients with pancreatoblastoma had advanced disease at diagnosis and were given chemotherapy; at the time of this report, three patients were alive in first remission, while one died due to treatment toxicity.
  • Both the cases of pancreatic carcinoma had the acinar cell subtype and successfully underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy with complete tumor resection, remaining without evidence of disease at the time of this analysis.
  • The histological diagnoses of the three endocrine tumors were a malignant islet cell tumor, a gastrinoma, and a well-differentiated tumor.
  • All 12 patients with solid pseudopapillary tumors underwent complete tumor resection and were given no adjuvant treatment; 11 were alive in first remission, while one experienced a local and distant relapse 5 years after diagnosis.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Surgery remains the keystone of treatment for pancreatic tumors in pediatric age as in adults.
  • The TREP project shows that prospective cooperative studies are feasible even for such very rare tumors as these and may serve as a model for developing international cooperative schemes.

  • [Title] Acinar cell carcinoma of the pancreas: clinical analysis of 115 patients from Pancreatic Cancer Registry of Japan Pancreas Society.
  • OBJECTIVES: Acinar cell carcinoma (ACC) of the pancreas is a rare tumor, and many aspects remain unclear because no large-scale clinical studies have been conducted.
  • RESULTS: Although ACC has been associated with advanced stage and poor prognosis, this tumor was resectable in 76.5% of the patients, and the 5-year survival rate after resection was favorable, being 43.9%.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Confirming the diagnosis of ACC preoperatively is difficult, but this diagnosis should be kept in mind while planning surgery for ordinary pancreatic cancer.
  • Once the diagnosis has been confirmed, a possibility of surgical resection should be pursued to achieve better prognosis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • To investigate the expression of AQP3 in normal and neoplastic lung tissues, we studied a series of 149 lung carcinoma tissues and 2 cell lines by immunohistochemistry, Western blotting, and reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction.
  • In lung carcinomas, AQP3 expression was observed in 59 (70.2%) of 84 adenocarcinomas.
  • Squamous cell carcinoma and large cell carcinoma had rather low positive ratios (35.8% and 13.4%, respectively).
  • No AQP3 expression was demonstrated in small cell carcinoma, pleomorphic carcinoma, or metastatic colon adenocarcinoma.
  • In adenocarcinomas, AQP3 was detected in all tumors of bronchioloalveolar subtype.
  • Papillary subtype also showed a higher positive ratio of AQP3 compared with that in acinar and solid with mucin subtypes.
  • In addition, AQP3 expression was related to tumor differentiation and clinical stage in adenocarcinomas.
  • Western blotting and reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction analyses confirmed the expression of AQP3 protein and messenger RNA in cell lines and tissues of lung adenocarcinoma.
  • In addition, lung carcinomas, especially adenocarcinomas, can produce AQP3, possibly in connection with their functional and/or biological nature, although the detailed mechanism of AQP3 expression in lung carcinomas remains to be clarified.

  • [Title] Metastatic ductal adenocarcinoma of the prostate: cytologic features and clinical findings.
  • We retrospectively reviewed the cytologic features of metastatic prostatic ductal carcinoma (PDC) in 23 cases, clinical manifestations, and clinical outcomes.
  • Cytologic smears typically showed tumor cells with abundant cytoplasm and oval nuclei arranged in papillary groups or flat and folded sheets, some of which showed peripheral nuclear palisading.
  • However, these features could be focal, subtle, and even indistinguishable from those of acinar carcinoma, particularly when the ductal component was predominantly of a cribriform and solid pattern or coexisted with acinar carcinoma.
  • Immunostaining for prostate-specific antigen and prostatic acid phosphatase proved helpful in determining a definitive diagnosis.
  • Tumor growth pattern did not correlate with prognosis, but visceral metastasis conveyed a poor prognosis.
  • The correlation with clinical and radiologic findings, a high index of suspicion, and the use of immunoperoxidase studies are important in making an accurate diagnosis.

  • [Title] let-7 microRNA expression is reduced in bronchioloalveolar carcinoma, a non-invasive carcinoma, and is not correlated with prognosis.
  • In this study, we examined 15 early bronchioloalveolar carcinomas (BACs), usually considered as adenocarcinomas in situ, as well as 26 well-differentiated and 25 less-differentiated invasive adenocarcinomas, to assess the association between tumor progression and let-7 expression levels.
  • Additionally, we investigated 47 invasive lung adenocarcinomas for EGFR and KRAS mutations and correlations with let-7 levels.
  • Relative to the corresponding normal lung tissue, reduced let-7 expression was observed in 13 of 15 BACs (87%) and totally in 52 of the 66 adenocarcinomas (79%), suggesting a link with early occurrence in carcinogenesis.
  • On classification of adenocarcinomas into two groups according to let-7 expression, no prognostic or genetic differences were observed.
  • Interestingly, some differences between histological subtypes were observed, such as lower let-7 expression levels in acinar adenocarcinomas and mucinous BACs.

  • [Title] Malignant salivary gland tumors and cyclo-oxygenase-2: a histopathological and immunohistochemical analysis with implications on histogenesis.
  • The classification system for malignant salivary gland tumors (MST) is largely dependent on its histogenesis.
  • The histogenesis is uncertain but the "bicellular theory of origin" has been accepted by most and states that malignant transformation of reserve cells from either the intercalated or excretory duct are responsible for the development of MST.
  • Fifty six primary major and minor gland MST were stained with anti-cox-2 antibody and rated with a combined score that added a scale of intensity to the percentage of tumor cells that overexpressed the cox-2 protein.
  • Tumor types were segregated by morphology, histological features and proposed histogenesis.
  • Strong cox-2 overexpression was noted in all MST of proposed excretory duct origin: salivary duct carcinoma (100%), mucoepidermoid carcinoma (MEC) (92%), and adenocarcinoma nos (AdC nos) (83%).
  • Primary squamous cell carcinoma (PSCC) was the exception.
  • Negative expression was noted in all tumors of proposed intercalated duct origin (adenoid cystic carcinoma, basal cell adenocarcinoma and acinic cell carcinoma) with the exception of one case of polymorphous low grade adenocarcinoma.
  • Strong cox-2 overexpression was noted in the epidermoid cells of MEC, abluminal duct cells surrounding the duct-like structures and ductal cells of AdC nos and salivary duct carcinoma.
  • Myoepithelial and acinar cells were unreactive.

  • Genetic pathways of various types of pancreatic carcinoma are described.
  • There are many differences in the genetic pathway between duct carcinogenesis and acinar carcinogensis.
  • K-ras mutation is a key event in the early stage of pancreatic duct carcinogenesis and various gene alterations accumulate from precancerous ductal lesions until the development of carcinomas.
  • Therefore, inhibition of K-ras gene mutation might be important for the prevention, and the combination of therapeutic agents against some target genes might be needed for therapy of ductal carcinomas.

  • [Title] The expression of the carboxyl ester lipase gene in pancreas and pancreatic adenocarcinomas.
  • Twenty-five tumor samples, 24 samples of normal pancreatic tissue and control tissues from other organs were examined by radioactive in situ hybridization (ISH) to localize CEL mRNA.
  • Two carcinoma samples and 6 permanent cell lines were examined by reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR).
  • By ISH, we verified a strong CEL gene expression in acinar cells of the normal pancreas.
  • A minor expression was noted in a single sample of acinar cell carcinoma and adenocarcinomas did not show any expression.
  • By RT-PCR, no specific expression in both tested adenocarcinomas was observed.
  • In summary, these results show that, contrary to notable expression of carboxyl ester lipase in acinar cells of normal pancreatic tissue, this lipase is not significantly active in pancreatic adenocarcinomas and thus not an apt genetic marker for diagnostic or therapeutic approaches.

  • The maintenance of epithelial structure and its function requires tight coordination and control of all the life processes of epithelial cells via cell-to-cell communication and signaling.
  • These well-balanced cellular systems are, however, quite often disturbed by genetic or environmental cues that may lead to the formation of epithelial tumors (carcinomas).
  • In fact, more than a half of all diagnosed tumors are initiated from epithelial cells.
  • It is, therefore, important to gain a greater understanding of the factors that form and maintain the epithelial structure, as well as the features of the acinar structure that are modified during cancer development as observable in experimental and clinical research.
  • Here, we propose several scenarios involving various bio-mechanical interactions between neighboring cells that result in abnormal acinar development.

  • [Title] WWOX expression in different histologic types and subtypes of non-small cell lung cancer.
  • PURPOSE: Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has heterogeneous histopathologic classification and clinical behavior and very low survival rate.
  • WWOX (WW domain-containing oxidoreductase) is a tumor suppressor gene, and its expression is altered in several cancers.
  • EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: WWOX protein expression was evaluated by immunohistochemistry in 170 patients with NSCLC (101 squamous cell carcinomas, 66 adenocarcinomas, 3 large cell carcinomas) and was correlated with histopathologic (histotype, subtype, grade, tumor-node-metastasis, stage, index of cell proliferation Ki67/MIB1) and clinical (age, gender, local recurrences, distant metastases, overall survival, and disease-free survival) characteristics.
  • WWOX expression was strongly associated with tumor histology (P=1.1x10(-5)) and histologic grade (P=0.0081): the percentage of cases with absent/strongly reduced WWOX expression was higher in squamous cell carcinomas and in poorly differentiated tumors.
  • Regarding adenocarcinoma, bronchioloalveolar pattern showed normal WWOX expression in 62.5% of the cases, whereas in solid and acinar patterns, a prevalence of cases with absent/very low WWOX expression was observed (79.2% and 50%, respectively).
  • Finally, weak WWOX staining intensity was related to the high index of cell proliferation (P=0.0012).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our results suggest that the loss of WWOX expression plays different roles in tumorigenesis of distinct histotypes and subtypes of NSCLC and is related to high aggressiveness (G3; high proliferating activity) of tumors.

  • [Title] Expression of TPX2 in salivary gland carcinomas.
  • The purpose of this study was to clarify the expression of TPX2 mRNA and correlation between TPX2 and clinicopathological factors in salivary gland carcinomas.
  • The expression of TPX2 mRNA was investigated in 20 human salivary gland carcinomas (8 mucoepidermoid carcinomas, 7 adenoid cystic carcinomas, 5 acinic cell carcinomas) and 6 normal submandibular glands using real-time quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR).
  • The mean expression level of TPX2 mRNA was higher in mucoepidermoid carcinomas (0.53+/-0.51) than in normal submandibular glands (0.047+/-0.029); a significant association was found (Mann-Whitney U test, P=0.0067).
  • The mean expression levels of TPX2 were also higher in acinic cell carcinomas (0.45+/-0.49) and adenoid cystic carcinomas (0.28+/-0.22) than in normal submandibular glands.
  • These results indicate that human TPX2 mRNA is closely linked to increased or abnormal cell proliferation in malignant salivary gland tumors.

  • [Title] Cytological characteristics of acinic cell carcinoma (ACC) diagnosed by fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB). A study of four cases.
  • OBJECTIVE: To present the cytopathological characteristics of acinic cell carcinoma (ACC) as well as its cyto-histological correlation, commenting on the differential diagnostic problems of this entity based on four observations studied using fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB).
  • CLINICAL CASES: Two males of 52 and 53 years of age, one 79 year-old woman and a girl of 12 years of age, who presented tumors located in the parotid area (cases 1, 2 and 4) and at the laterocervical level (case 3).
  • CYTOLOGICAL FINDINGS: The cytologic smears revealed abundant tumoral cellularity arranged in small monolayered sheets, forming acinar structures or isolated cells.
  • DISCUSSION: FNAB provides essential information on the diagnostic-therapeutic management of salivary gland tumors; this methodology is highly sensitive in its diagnostic efficacy.
  • The diagnosis of ACCs frequently presents difficulties, owing to the great cytologic similarity of the tumor cells with the normal acinar component of the salivary gland.
  • The differential diagnosis is considered, fundamentally, with clear cell carcinomas, mucoepidermoid carcinomas, Warthin s tumor, and oncocytomas.

  • [Title] Acinar cell carcinoma of the pancreas in the United States: prognostic factors and comparison to ductal adenocarcinoma.
  • INTRODUCTION: Pancreatic acinar cell carcinoma (ACC) is a rare tumor with poorly defined prognosis.
  • OBJECTIVE: Our objective was to compare a large population of patients with ACC to pancreatic ductal cell adenocarcinoma (DCC) in order to determine distinguishing characteristics and to assess survival.
  • RESULTS: Median tumor size was 6.9 cm (vs. 4.6 cm DCC); 32.1% had nodal metastases (vs. 48.0% DCC); and 47% had high-grade tumors (vs. 37.3% DCC).
  • Patients with ACC were more likely to be male, white, and have larger tumor size, no nodal involvement, or pancreatic tail tumors.
  • On multivariable analysis, age < 65, well-differentiated tumors, and negative resection margins were independent prognostic factors for ACC.

  • [Title] Relative frequency of intra-oral minor salivary gland tumors: a study of 380 cases from northern California and comparison to reports from other parts of the world.
  • BACKGROUND: The relative frequency of individual intra-oral minor salivary gland tumors (IMSGT) is not well documented in the literature.
  • Tumors were classified according to the 2005 WHO classification of salivary gland tumors.
  • Of the 380 tumors, 224 (59%) were benign and 156 (41%) were malignant.
  • Of the benign tumors, pleomorphic adenoma (PA) was the most common (39.2%), followed by cystadenoma (6.3%), canalicular adenoma (6.1%), ductal papillomas (4.4%), basal cell adenoma (1.6%), and myoepithelioma (1.3%).
  • Of the malignant tumors, mucoepidermoid carcinoma was the most common (21.8%), followed by polymorphous low-grade adenocarcinoma (7.1%), adenoid cystic carcinoma (6.3%), adenocarcinoma, not otherwise specified (NOS; 2.1%), acinic cell carcinoma (1.6%), clear cell carcinoma, NOS (1.0%), and carcinoma ex PA (0.5%).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Studies related to the relative frequency of individual IMSGTs from different parts of the world are difficult to compare because many studies are outdated, the number of cases is small, the list of tumors is limited, and new entities are not included.
  • To determine the true relative frequency, more studies should be conducted, on a large number of cases from one source, by experienced pathologists in the field of salivary gland tumors.

  • [Title] [Endoscopic resection of benign and malignant tumors in the nasal cavity and paranasal sinus].
  • Endoscopic resection of nasal and paranasal sinus tumors is more aesthetic and less invasive than conventional resection, such as Luc's operation and lateral rhinotomy.
  • We clarified the effect of radical endoscopic tumor excision and the control of local bleeding hazardous in endoscopic surgery.
  • Subjects were patients with benign lesions in the nasal cavity, medial wall of the maxillary sinus, ethmoid sinus, and/or sphenoid sinus without concurrent malignant lesions.
  • Although patients selection for malignant tumor excision was based on (1) possible en bloc resection, (2) low-grade malignant tumors, and (3) tumors in the nasal cavity and adjoining paranasal sinus, the final decision was made individual.
  • Subjects were 23 patients with benign tumor (10 inverted papilloma, 9 hemangioma, 2 juvenile angiofibroma, and 2 other tumors) and 4 with malignant tumor (olfactory neuroblastoma, acinic cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and chondroid chordoma) in the nasal and paranasal sinus.
  • The tumor was resected en bloc except for patients with inverted papilloma (2 cases) and chondroid chordoma.
  • Recurrence in benign tumors was zero during a mean observation of 21 months.
  • Endoscopic removal of malignant lesions remains controversial because of the small number of patients and short postoperative observation.

  • [Title] Human kallikrein 13 expression in salivary gland tumors.
  • Petraki et al have previously described presence of hK13 in salivary gland tissue, localized to duct epithelia and some acinar cells.
  • The aim of this study was to determine whether hK13 is expressed in salivary gland tissues and salivary gland tumors (both benign and malignant), in order to compare normal with tumor tissues.
  • Pleomorphic adenomas (PA), adenoid cystic carcinomas (ACC), polymorphous low grade adenocarcinomas (PLGA), acinic cell carcinomas (ACI), mucoepidermoid carcinomas (MEC) and adenocarcinomas not otherwise specified (ANOS) of both minor and major salivary glands were examined.
  • The results of this study indicate that most salivary gland tumors show high levels of expression of hK13.
  • Ductal cells and cells lining duct-like structures showed a higher intensity of staining than non-ductal cells in most tumors.
  • Tumors which exhibited only non-ductal cells also exhibited cytoplasmic staining.
  • In conclusion, we demonstrate the high expression of hK13 in several common salivary gland tumors.

  • [Title] Combined immunohistochemistry of beta-catenin, cytokeratin 7, and cytokeratin 20 is useful in discriminating primary lung adenocarcinomas from metastatic colorectal cancer.
  • However, often, the discriminating diagnosis of primary lung acinar adenocarcinoma and lung metastasis of colorectal cancer based on morphological and pathological findings is difficult.
  • The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical usefulness of immunohistochemistry of beta-catenin, cytokeratin (CK) 7, and CK20 for the discriminating diagnosis of lung cancer.
  • METHODS: We performed immunohistochemistry of beta-catenin, CK7, and CK20 in 19 lung metastasis of colorectal cancer samples, 10 corresponding primary colorectal cancer samples and 11 primary lung acinar adenocarcinoma samples and compared the levels of accuracy of the discriminating diagnosis by using antibodies against these antigens.
  • RESULTS: Positive staining of beta-catenin was observed in all the lung metastasis of colorectal cancer samples as well as in the primary colorectal cancer samples but in none of the primary lung acinar adenocarcinoma samples.
  • Positive staining of CK7 was observed in 90.9% of the primary lung acinar adenocarcinoma samples and in 5.3% of the lung metastasis of colorectal cancer samples, but in none of the primary colorectal cancer samples.
  • Positive staining of CK20 was observed in all the primary colorectal cancer samples and in 84.2% of the lung metastasis of colorectal cancer samples, but in none of the primary lung acinar adenocarcinoma samples.
  • CONCLUSION: Combined immunohistochemistry of beta-catenin, CK7, and CK20 is useful for making a discriminating diagnosis between lung metastasis of colorectal cancer and primary lung acinar adenocarcinoma.
  • This method will enable accurate diagnosis of a lung tumor and will be useful for selecting appropriate therapeutic strategies, including chemotherapeutic agents and operation methods.

  • Fine needle aspiration is notoriously unreliable in recognizing the malignant nature of the parotid carcinoma, providing its precise classification, and establishing its grade.
  • A few malignant neoplasms are particularly prone to diagnostic error.
  • Acinic cell carcinoma is frequently interpreted as benign or even nonneoplastic; and low-grade lymphomas are often discounted as inflammatory processes.

  • BACKGROUND: Prostatic neuroendocrine carcinomas comprise <1% of all prostate neoplasms, and approximately 200 cases have been reported in the literature.
  • We undertook this study to describe the experience in the management of prostatic neuroendocrine carcinoma with androgen-deprivation therapy (ADT).
  • Patients were selected by anatomopathological diagnostic study of neuroendocrine carcinoma including pure and mixed variants.
  • Symptoms at diagnosis were associated with metastasis to other organs, one with bone metastasis, and presenting pain in 100% of the cases.
  • In six (60%) patients mixed variant was documented (acinar adenocarcinoma and neuroendocrine carcinoma) with a median survival of 11.6 months.
  • In four patients (40%), pure neuroendocrine carcinoma was documented with a median survival of 7 months.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Prostatic neuroendocrine carcinoma is uncommon, aggressive and represents a prostatic neoplasia without PSA expression.
  • In advanced disease, very low response is reached with ADT.

  • [Title] Cytology and histology have limited added value in prognostic models for salivary gland carcinomas.
  • Univariate analyses on malignant salivary gland tumors report a strong relation of histological subtypes and prognosis.
  • In order to study the prognostic value of cytology and histology in salivary carcinoma we performed multivariate analyses on 666 newly diagnosed patients.
  • In multivariate analyses sex, tumor size, N- and M-staging, localization, comorbidity, skin involvement and pain were independent predictors of survival.
  • Histology was an independent prognostic factor, mainly because acinic cell carcinoma acted differently from the other histological subtypes.
  • The added prognostic value of cytology and/or histology factors in salivary carcinoma is limited, largely due to the combined prognostic value of other prognostic factors such as tumor size, N- and M-classification and comorbidity.

  • Overexpression of alpha-methylacyl coenzyme A racemase (AMACR) in combination with absence of basal cell markers [ie, p63 and high molecular weight cytokeratin (HMWCK)] is typical of classic acinar prostatic adenocarcinoma.
  • We studied the expression and diagnostic utility of p63/HMWCK/AMACR immunohistochemical cocktail staining in ductal adenocarcinoma and cribriform Gleason pattern 4 acinar prostate cancer and compared it to noncribriform Gleason pattern 4 acinar prostate cancer.
  • One to 4 representative formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded archival tissue blocks from 62 radical prostatectomy specimens harboring prostate cancer of ductal (n=51), cribriform Gleason pattern 4 acinar (n=27), and noncribriform Gleason pattern 4 acinar adenocarcinoma (n=48) were included in this study.
  • The percentage of staining intensity and the presence of occasional basal cells positive with p63/HMWCK were recorded in each histologic type of prostatic adenocarcinoma.
  • Seventy-seven percent of ductal prostatic adenocarcinoma, 67% of cribriform acinar prostatic carcinoma, and 81% of noncribriform acinar prostatic carcinoma showed positive staining for AMACR.
  • There was no statistically significant difference between AMACR staining among the 3 histologic types, although there was a trend for noncribriform acinar prostatic carcinoma to have greater expression of AMACR than cribriform acinar prostatic carcinoma (P=0.07).
  • Staining was often heterogeneous, varying in staining intensities within the same histologic type of carcinoma.
  • Basal cells were detectable by p63 and HMWCK in a patchy fashion in 31.4% (16/51) of ductal and 29.6% (8/27) of cribriform acinar carcinomas compared with 2.1% (1/48) of noncribriform acinar carcinomas. In summary:.
  • (1) the majority of prostatic ductal and cribriform acinar carcinomas strongly expressed AMACR, however, subpopulations of these prostatic carcinoma were either completely negative or only weakly positive;.
  • (2) AMACR staining was often heterogeneous in intensity in the same histologic type of tumor, even within the same case;.
  • (3) patchy basal cell staining in noncribriform acinar prostatic carcinoma is rare.
  • In contrast, remnants of basal cells identified by p63/HMWCK were seen in a patchy fashion in a significant minority of both ductal and cribriform acinar prostatic adenocarcinoma, which most likely represents intraductal spread of tumor.

  • [Title] Liver metastases of pancreatic acinar cell carcinoma with marked nuclear atypia and pleomorphism diagnosed by EUS FNA cytology: a case report with emphasis on FNA cytological findings.
  • BACKGROUND: Acinar cell carcinoma of the pancreas is a rare neoplasm.
  • Although this tumor has been well characterized histologically, the morphological patterns in Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology have not been well defined.
  • Unlike ductal adenocarcinomas, endocrine tumors, and solid pseudopapillary tumors of the pancreas with their characteristic FNA cytological features, acinar cell carcinomas pose a particular diagnostic challenge by sharing many cytomorphologic features with endocrine tumors of the pancreas.
  • FNA cytology revealed abundant, loosely cohesive clusters of malignant epithelial cells with vaguely acinar and trabecular formations.
  • Scattered, strikingly large tumor cells with giant nuclei, prominent mitoses and associated necrosis were evident.
  • A pancreatic endocrine tumor was suspected initially, but acinar cell carcinoma of the pancreas was confirmed by immunohistochemistry, cytochemical and ultrastructural studies.
  • CONCLUSION: We describe a case of pancreatic acinar cell carcinoma with unusual cytomorphologic features mimicking an endocrine tumor of pancreas, encountered in endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration of a metastatic liver mass and discuss the diagnostic approach for this unusual pancreatic tumor in fine needle aspiration cytology.

  • [Title] Loss of Maspin expression is a negative prognostic factor in common salivary gland tumors.
  • Maspin, a 42kDa protein, belongs to the serine protease inhibitor (serpin) family and is suggested to have inhibitory effects on tumor-induced angiogenesis, tumor cell motility, invasion and metastasis and influences prognosis of tumor patients.
  • High proportions of Maspin expression were observed in adenoid cystic carcinomas, mucoepidermoid carcinomas and carcinomas ex pleomorphic adenoma, low proportions were seen in salivary duct carcinomas.
  • Acinic cell carcinomas did not show any Maspin expression.
  • Analysis of the prognostic impact of Maspin expression was restricted to salivary gland carcinoma types of intermediate malignancy grade (adenoid cystic carcinoma, mucoepidermoid carcinoma and carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma).
  • For these tumors, univariate analyses revealed that T-stage (p=0.025), age70 (p=0.0065), loss of Maspin (p=0.0016) and presence of residual tumor (p<0.001) correlated with poor prognosis.
  • Moreover, negative Maspin staining was associated with lymph node metastasis and residual tumor.
  • According to these findings, Maspin might be useful as a new prognostic marker in adenoid cystic carcinoma and in salivary gland carcinomas with intermediate grade of malignancy where grading systems are still under debate.

  • [Title] Diffusion-weighted echo-planar MR imaging of primary parotid gland tumors: is a prediction of different histologic subtypes possible?
  • BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Our aim was to determine the value of echo-planar diffusion-weighted MR imaging (epiDWI) in differentiating various types of primary parotid gland tumors.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: One hundred forty-nine consecutive patients with suspected tumors of the parotid gland were examined with an epiDWI sequence by using a 1.5T unit.
  • Histologic diagnosis was obtained in every patient.
  • RESULTS: In 136 patients, a primary parotid gland tumor was confirmed by histology.
  • ADC values of Warthin tumors were different from those of myoepithelial adenomas, lipomas, and salivary duct carcinomas (P < .001, 0.013, and .037, respectively).
  • Mucoepidermoid carcinomas, acinic cell carcinomas, and basal cell adenocarcinomas were not differentiable from Warthin tumors (P = .094, .396, and .604, respectively).
  • Due to an overlap not only within the group of benign and malignant lesions but also between groups, diagnoses should not be addressed on the basis of ADC values solely.
  • Therefore, further studies combining DWI, morphologic criteria, and probably other MR imaging techniques seem warranted.

  • The pancreata from knockout mice were hypoplastic and histologically demonstrated a striking paucity of exocrine pancreas, acinar to duct metaplasia, but generally intact pancreatic islets containing all lineages of endocrine cells.
  • In animals with extensive acinar hypoplasia, putative hepatocyte transdifferention was occasionally observed.
  • In contrast, beta-catenin/Wnt signaling appears to be critical for proliferation of PTF1+ nascent acinar cells and may also function, in part, to maintain an undifferentiated state in exocrine/acinar cell precursors.
  • This data is consistent with the findings of frequent beta-catenin mutations in carcinomas of acinar cell lineage seen in humans.

  • [Title] Do prostatic transition zone tumors have a distinct morphology?
  • Previous studies have proposed that the morphologic spectrum of prostatic glands of variable size with tall columnar cells displaying basally oriented nuclei and clear to pale pink cytoplasm (TZ-LOOK) is characteristic of the well to moderately differentiated component of transition zone (TZ) tumors.
  • In a recent report, we identified dominant peripheral zone (PZ) and TZ tumors situated anterior to the prostatic urethra.
  • Currently, we evaluate the histopathologic features of 215 dominant tumors, including 63 TZ and 73 anterior PZ lesions and an additional cohort of 79 posterior PZ tumors, in radical prostatectomy specimens, to identify the prevalence of this morphology in tumors of different zonal origin.
  • Each dominant tumor was assigned a TZ-LOOK extent score of 0 to 4, with 0 = no such morphology, 1 = 1% to 25%, 2 = 26% to 50%, 3 = 51% to 75%, and 4 = >75%.
  • Overall, 121/215 (56%) tumors showed some degree of this histology, including 56 of 63 (89%) TZ tumors and 65 of 152 (43%) PZ tumors (P<0.0001).
  • However, only 31/63 (49%) TZ tumors had >50% TZ-LOOK.
  • Among PZ tumors, 6/152 (4%) had predominant (>50%) TZ-LOOK morphology, yet 23/152 (15%) of all PZ tumors and 23/65 (35%) of PZ tumors displaying any degree of TZ-LOOK had scores of 2 to 3 (>25%; nonfocal).
  • In tumors of both zones with predominant (scores 3 to 4; >50%) TZ-LOOK histology, darker glands of usual acinar adenocarcinoma was often seen at the periphery.
  • Conversely, in tumors with nonpredominant TZ-LOOK (scores 1 to 2; <or=50%), these glands were frequently admixed with small glands bearing dark cytoplasm.
  • In this series, we demonstrate that some degree of TZ-LOOK morphology is twice as frequent in dominant TZ tumors than in PZ tumors.
  • Tumors demonstrating >50% of this histology are very likely of TZ origin, but this scenario occurs in only half of TZ tumors.
  • Importantly, the TZ-LOOK is nonfocal in up to 35% of PZ tumors exhibiting any degree of this morphology.

  • [Title] Subcutaneous fat necrosis as the presenting feature of a pancreatic carcinoma: the challenge of differentiating endocrine and acinar pancreatic neoplasms.
  • The association between pancreatic panniculitis and pancreatic disease is well described, but differentiation among the neoplastic causes of the syndrome remains difficult due to substantial overlap in histological and immunohistochemical features.
  • We report a case of subcutaneous fat necrosis as the presenting feature in a 61-year-old man with metastatic carcinoma of pancreatic origin.
  • Previous pathological evaluation of the patient's liver biopsy led to an initial diagnosis of adenocarcinoma of unknown primary site.
  • Immunohistochemistry was consistent with neuroendocrine differentiation, but the patient rapidly decompensated and died before the evaluation was complete, leaving the definitive diagnosis in question.
  • In our review of the published reports of tumor types associated with pancreatic panniculitis, we found that immunohistochemical staining and electron microscopy can and should be used in conjunction with clinical correlation to accurately differentiate neuroendocrine tumors from carcinomas with acinar cell features.
  • Accurate diagnosis of these tumors is necessary to determine prognosis and define appropriate therapy.

  • Glucocorticoid receptor overexpression has been reported in a variety of human solid tumors, but much less in known about its presence in pancreatic cancer.
  • Immunohistochemical analysis of paraffin-embedded tissue sections was performed in human normal pancreata and well differentiated pancreatic adenocarcinomas (monoclonal primary antibody, ABCAM, Cambridge, UK).
  • As positive control invasive ductal adenocarcinoma of the breast was used.
  • In the normal non-tumorous pancreas a strong positivity was detected in all acinar cells, typically in the cytoplasm.
  • The ductal pancreatic carcinoma cells also displayed a strong positivity.
  • The location of the immune reaction was mainly cytoplasmic but in some tumors a strong nuclear reaction was also noticed.
  • In some slides acini remained also positive in the close vicinity of the tumor.
  • Although the positivity of the ductal tumor cells was a constant finding in our samples, surprisingly, the liver metastasis was completely negative.
  • Our studies have shown that the human pancreatic carcinomas do overexpress a strong glucocorticoid receptor positivity, but its significance is not clear.
  • However, this finding might have a clinical relevance.

  • [Title] Acinar cell carcinoma of the pancreas: is the absence of neuroendocrine component related to a more malignant behavior?
  • BACKGROUND/AIMS: Acinar cell carcinomas are uncommon malignant tumors of the pancreas, accounting for 1-2% of all the cases of exocrine pancreatic tumor.
  • Some authors have estimated acinar cell tumors to be as aggressive as ductal adenocarcinoma of the pancreas whereas other series showed acinar cell tumors to have a favorable clinical outcome.
  • This discrepancy in prognosis may be related to the cellular components of the tumor.
  • METHODOLOGY: With the aim to evaluate the possible relationship between the presence of neuroendocrine differentiation and behavior of these tumors, the authors reviewed all patients presenting acinar cell carcinoma of the pancreas in the last 5 years with emphasis in the immunohistochemical evaluation.
  • Two patients without neuroendocrine component had a disseminated disease at presentation.
  • This data suggests that this tumor is less aggressive than ductal adenocarcinoma and even with nodal involvement, long-term survival after complete resection can be achieved.
  • Due to the rarity of this pancreatic tumor, this relationship remains to be confirmed with a multicentric study including a larger number of patients.

  • [Title] Lobular carcinoma of the breast with hybrid myoepithelial and secretory ("myosecretory") cell differentiation.
  • Three cases of lobular carcinoma of the breast showing a complex morphology that included myoepithelial cell differentiation are reported.
  • One case was a pure in situ acinar lesion, while the other 2 cases were in situ and invasive carcinomas.
  • Three different cell types were seen in these tumors: one was the phenotype commonly seen in the garden variety of in situ lobular carcinoma (LCIS) constituted by noncohesive round to ovoid cells with round nuclei and positivity for epithelial membrane antigen (EMA), estrogen receptor (ER), and progesteron receptor (PR).
  • The third type, seen in a minority of cell population of case nos.
  • This type was defined as "hybrid myosecretory cell" to highlight contractile and secretory properties present at the same time.
  • Cells with hybrid features probably indicate that myoepithelial and secretory cells are strictly related and the existence of a stem cell, at least for these cases, is not necessary.

  • Accidental discovery of androgen receptor (AR) expression in high-grade salivary gland cancer led to evaluation of that finding.
  • In this study we evaluated the immunohistochemical expression of AR in a series of 37 formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded malignant salivary gland tumors using two commercially available antibodies.
  • Nuclear immunoreactivity for AR was demonstrated in 3 of 4 salivary duct carcinomas, 2 of 7 adenocarcinomas NOS and 1 of 2 carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma for both antibodies.
  • There was no immunoreactivity seen in 13 adenoid cystic carcinomas, 7 mucoepidermoid carcinomas and 4 acinic cell carcinomas.

  • [Title] Acinar cell carcinoma arising from an ectopic pancreas.
  • We herein report a rare case of ectopic pancreatic acinar cell carcinoma (ACC) which presented as a submucosal tumor of the pylorus.
  • Esophago-gastroduodenal endoscopy showed no mucosal lesions, but a submucosal tumor was observed around the pylorus.
  • We diagnosed a gastrointestinal stromal tumor or malignant lymphoma preoperatively, and decided to perform an operation in order to confirm the diagnosis and select the optimal treatment.
  • The resected specimen showed the 7.6 x 4.9-cm size tumor to mainly originate from the pylorus.
  • Histopathologically, the tumor was identified as pancreatic ACC with lymph node metastasis.
  • The tumor cells were labeled by immunohistochemical staining for alpha1-antitrypsin.
  • Because of the tumor location, we considered the tumor to have originated from the ectopic pancreatic tissue in the stomach.

  • [Title] Sinonasal acinic cell carcinoma: a clinicopathologic study of four cases.
  • BACKGROUND: Acinic cell carcinoma is a low-grade malignant epithelial salivary gland neoplasm with a predilection for the parotid gland.
  • To date, only 11 cases of sinonasal acinic cell carcinomas have been reported in the English-language literature.
  • We present the clinicopathologic features of four sinonasal acinic cell carcinomas.
  • METHODS: The demographic data and pathologic material of four patients with sinonasal acinic cell carcinoma identified from the files of the Department of Pathology at The University of Texas M. D.
  • Histologically, all tumors were composed of round to ovoid cells with clear and/or basophilic granular cytoplasm and round, hyperchromatic, small, eccentrically located nuclei.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Sinonasal acinic cell carcinoma is a distinct low-grade carcinoma that can be distinguished from other neoplasms by light microscopy and histochemical staining methods.

  • Acinar cell carcinoma (ACC) of the pancreas is extremely uncommon and its cytologic features have rarely been described.
  • We describe the cytologic features of cases we have seen, review the literature regarding its cytologic features and discuss the pitfalls that may be encountered and the use of immunohistochemistry for its diagnosis.
  • Original cytologic diagnoses included "acinar cell carcinoma," "pancreatic endocrine tumor," "favor neuroendocrine tumor, low-grade" and "non-diagnostic specimen."
  • The cytologic features included small to moderate-sized loose groups with numerous single cells, prominent acinar formation, little anisonucleosis and prominent nucleoli.
  • The cytologic features showed significant overlap with those of pancreatic endocrine tumors.
