  • [Title] Primary vaginal adenocarcinoma of intestinal type arising from a tubulovillous adenoma.
  • Biopsy revealed an adenocarcinoma of the intestinal type, with a small remnant of a villous adenoma.
  • This led to the conclusion that the lesion was a primary intestinal-type adenocarcinoma of the vagina that had arisen from a vaginal villous adenoma.
  • It is important to be aware of this tumor type and to distinguish them from metastatic colorectal adenocarcinoma in order to plan appropriate treatment.

  • [Title] Carcinoma arising from villous adenoma of the ampullary bile duct: Report of a case.
  • Adenocarcinoma arising from the villous adenoma of the ampullary biliary epithelium is an extremely rare disorder.
  • The preoperative diagnosis and treatment of the disease represent a major difficulty.
  • A frozen-section examination of these particles revealed villous adenoma.
  • The frozen-section examination of the resected material also revealed a villous adenoma.
  • The histological examination revealed a villous adenoma arising from the biliary epithelium and some adenocarcinoma foci.
  • This case shows the importance of surgeons to keep in mind the fact that frozen examinations may sometimes miss a malignancy and they therefore cannot be relied upon to rule out malignancy in villous adenoma of the ampullary bile duct.

  • [Title] [Expression of minichromosome maintenance protein 2 in colonic adenocarcinoma, adenoma and normal colonic mucosa and its clinical significance].
  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the expression differences of minichromosome maintenance 2 (MCM2) mRNA and protein among colon adenocarcinoma, colon adenoma and normal mucosa, and among different clinicopathological types of adenomas.
  • METHODS: Fifty specimens, including 33 colonic adenomas, 12 colonic adenocarcinomas and 5 normal colonic mucosa were selected.
  • Expression differences of MCM2 mRNA among the colonic adenocarcinoma, adenoma and normal colonic mucosa were evaluated by REST-XL software.
  • RESULTS: The expression of MCM2 was observed in the basal third to half of the colonic crypts in normal mucosa, while throughout the epithelium in the colonic adenocarcinomas and adenomas.
  • However, the expression of MCM2 mRNA in the adenocarcinomas was significantly higher than that in the adenomas(P=0.001).
  • The MCM2 mRNA expression was elevated in the adenoma with villous type, in the conditions of high-grade dysplasia, larger size, sessile morphology and in patients of older ages, but the difference was not significant by REST-XL (P>0.05).
  • CONCLUSION: The difference of MCM2 expression between the adenoma and the adenocarcinoma indicates its potential value in the early diagnosis of colonic cancer.

  • [Title] Immunohistochemical expression of prostatic antigens in adenocarcinoma and villous adenoma of the urinary bladder.
  • Adenocarcinomas of the bladder are rare, with the diagnosis dependent on exclusion of secondary involvement by direct extension or metastatic spread from other sites.
  • The recent description of an unusual form of urothelial-type mucinous prostatic adenocarcinoma raises a novel differential diagnosis between adenocarcinomas of the prostate and bladder, and investigation into the utility of classic prostatic immunohistochemical antigens in bladder adenocarcinoma is warranted.
  • We identified 37 primary infiltrating adenocarcinomas of the bladder, which included signet ring cell carcinomas (n=11), urachal adenocarcinomas (n=5), and enteric adenocarcinoma (n=21).
  • Also included for comparison were 3 cases, each of bladder villous adenomas and bladder adenocarcinoma in situ.
  • Of the 37 adenocarcinomas, all were negative for PSA and PSAP (0/37; 0%).
  • In contrast, a minority of bladder adenocarcinomas was labeled with the prostate antigens P501S and PSMA.
  • P501S showed moderate diffuse cytoplasmic staining in 4/37 cases (11%), including 3 enteric-type adenocarcinomas and 1 mucinous adenocarcinoma.
  • Additionally, 1 case of adenocarcinoma in situ demonstrated diffuse cytoplasmic staining for P501S.
  • The granular perinuclear staining pattern of P501S typically seen in prostatic adenocarcinoma was absent in all cases of bladder adenocarcinoma.
  • PSMA showed diffuse cytoplasmic staining in 4/37 (11%) infiltrating adenocarcinomas (including 1 signet ring carcinoma and 3 enteric-type adenocarcinomas), and in 1 case of adenocarcinoma in situ.
  • Membranous PSMA staining was evident in an additional 3 tumors, 1 urachal mucinous adenocarcinoma, 1 nonurachal mucinous and signet ring cell adenocarcinoma, and 1 nonurachal villous adenoma.
  • In conclusion, although all cases of bladder adenocarcinoma examined were negative for PSA and PSAP, the surprising finding that a subset of invasive and in situ adenocarcinomas of the bladder demonstrated immunoreactivity for P501S and PSMA should warrant caution when using these markers in differentiating prostatic from bladder adenocarcinomas.
  • The lack of granular perinuclear staining for P501S and the absence of membranous PSMA staining both favor a bladder adenocarcinoma, although rare cases of villous adenoma and adenocarcinoma did show PSMA membranous staining indistinguishable from that seen in prostate cancer.
  • Although the novel antigens P501S and PSMA are fairly specific and more sensitive in the differential diagnosis of prostate and urothelial carcinoma, care must be taken when adenocarcinomas of the bladder are considered within this differential diagnosis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Computed tomographic colonography, also known as virtual colonoscopy, is an innovative and secure technology which is revolutionizing the diagnosis of colon and rectum neoplasias.
  • The histological analysis of resected lesions revealed 12 tubular adenomas, 6 hyperplastic polyps and 1 colonic tubulo-villous adenoma with an adenocarcinoma focus.
  • In this study, computed tomographic colonography was performed without complications and a complete and safe colorectal evaluation was possible in all acromegalic patients.
  • Moreover, computed tomographic colonography presented good sensitivity, specificity and accuracy for the identification of acromegalic patients with polyps of any size and better results in the diagnosis of large polyps, when they were compared to small polypoid lesions.
