  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [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.
  • 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.
  • The pleomorphic nuclei had fine granular chromatin and occasionally small nucleoli.
  • 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.

4. Wang HY, Mills SE: KIT and RCC are useful in distinguishing chromophobe renal cell carcinoma from the granular variant of clear cell renal cell carcinoma. Am J Surg Pathol; 2005 May;29(5):640-6
COS Scholar Universe. author profiles.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] KIT and RCC are useful in distinguishing chromophobe renal cell carcinoma from the granular variant of clear cell renal cell carcinoma.
  • The distinction between chromophobe renal cell carcinoma, the granular cell variant of clear cell renal cell carcinoma, and renal oncocytoma is a common diagnostic dilemma.
  • The usefulness of KIT, CD10, RCC, and RON in the differential diagnosis of these renal epithelial tumors was investigated.
  • KIT was 100% positive in chromophobe renal cell carcinoma (11 of 11) and renal oncocytoma (12 of 12).
  • The KIT staining pattern was identical in both tumor types, with cytoplasmic membrane attenuation, and fine granular cytoplasmic staining.
  • In contrast, KIT was absent in all granular cell variants of clear cell renal cell carcinoma (0 of 6).
  • RCC was observed in more than 80% of the granular cell variant of clear cell renal cell carcinoma (5 of 6) but was negative in all chromophobe renal cell carcinomas (0 of 11) and renal oncocytomas (0 of 12).
  • CD10 was expressed in 100% of the granular cell variant of clear cell renal cell carcinoma (6 of 6), 72% of chromophobe renal cell carcinomas (8 of 11), and 58% of renal oncocytomas (7 of 12).
  • RON was 100% positive in the chromophobe renal cell carcinomas (11 of 11) and renal oncocytomas (12 of 12) but only 50% positive in the granular cell variant of clear cell renal cell carcinoma (3 of 6).
  • Colloidal iron was diffusely and strongly positive in more than 80% of the chromophobe renal cell carcinomas (9 of 11), focally and weakly positive in 41% of the renal oncocytomas (5 of 12) but negative in all granular cell variant of clear cell renal cell carcinoma (0 of 6).
  • 1) KIT is a very sensitive marker for both chromophobe renal cell carcinoma and renal oncocytoma;.
  • 2) immunohistochemistry using antibodies to KIT combined with RCC was sufficient to discriminate between chromophobe renal cell carcinoma and the granular cell variant of clear cell renal cell carcinoma; and 3) neither RON, nor KIT, nor a combination of this panel can be used to distinguish chromophobe renal cell carcinoma from renal oncocytoma.
  • Colloidal iron staining aided in this distinction for the majority of the chromophobe renal cell carcinomas (more than 80% positive) and renal oncocytomas (close to 60% negative).

5. Hard GC, Seely JC, Kissling GE, Betz LJ: Spontaneous occurrence of a distinctive renal tubule tumor phenotype in rat carcinogenicity studies conducted by the national toxicology program. Toxicol Pathol; 2008 Apr;36(3):388-96
COS Scholar Universe. author profiles.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The hallmark features of this tumor included eosinophilic/amphophilic staining, large finely granular cells, and numerous vacuoles and/or minilumens.
  • Of 154 studies in which renal tubule tumors had been recorded in the standard single sections of kidney in the TDMS, there were collectively 1012 rats with renal adenomas, carcinomas, or adenocarcinomas, and of these, 100 displayed the distinctive AV morphology, representing 74 studies involving mostly the F344 rat, but also the Sprague-Dawley and Wistar strains.
  • The AV tumors (mainly adenomas but also some carcinomas) occurred usually as solitary lesions in the affected animals.

Hazardous Substances Data Bank. FLUOROURACIL .

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Rectal adenocarcinoma with oncocytic features: possible relationship with preoperative chemoradiotherapy.
  • BACKGROUND: The introduction of preoperative chemoradiation into the treatment protocol of rectal adenocarcinomas has affected the microscopical morphology in subsequent resection specimens.
  • RESULTS: The tumour cells conformed to oncocytes morphologically (large size with abundant, granular eosinophilic cytoplasm, vesicular nuclei and prominent acidophilic nucleoli), immunohistochemically (positive for carcinoembryonic antigen, cytokeratin 20 and caudal type homeo box transcription factor 2, but negative for both chromogranin and synaptophysin) and ultrastructurally (large cells showing tight junctions, cytoplasmic engorgement by mitochondria and absence of neurosecretory granules).
  • Oncocytic change in this particular clinical context occurs as a reflection of cytotoxic damage or cellular hypoxia induced by chemoradiation resulting in degeneration of the cell and the oncocytic phenotype.

NCI CPTC Antibody Characterization Program. NCI CPTC Antibody Characterization Program .

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Non-mass forming, neoplastic intraepithelial proliferations (dysplasia) represent the most well-accepted precursor lesions to gallbladder adenocarcinomas.
  • They are typically small, localized, grossly unrecognizable lesions that have been identified in the epithelium adjacent to up to 79% of gallbladder adenocarcinomas.
  • Morphologic variants that have been reported include flat, micropapillary, papillary and cribriform.
  • The dysplastic focus was confined to one tissue section, and was comprised of a localized true papilla [i.e with a fibrovascular core], measuring approximately 1.2 mm in greatest dimension and an adjacent, flat, 7-cell epithelial segment.
  • These cells also showed voluminous eosinophilic to granular cytoplasm, such that the overall nuclear-to-cytoplasmic ratio was generally not increased.

8. Picken MM: The evolving concept of renal neoplasia: impact of emerging molecular and electron microscopic studies. Ultrastruct Pathol; 2005 May-Aug;29(3-4):277-82
COS Scholar Universe. author profiles.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The classification of renal tumors has evolved from one that initially encompassed only 2 types of tumors, i.e., clear and granular cell carcinomas, to the markedly expanded recent classification that incorporates new entities, some of which are primarily defined by specific molecular abnormalities.
  • Despite these advances, a single tumor category, clear cell carcinoma, still incorporates the majority (approximately 70%) of renal tumors.
  • Electron microscopic studies have been pivotal in defining the spectrum of oncocytoma-chromophobe renal cell carcinoma.
  • Cytoplasmic eosinophilia found in some renal cell carcinomas currently classified as clear cell type is under intense study.
  • Tumors that have recently emerged from this group include tumors with translocations involving chromosome Xp11.2, carcinomas associated with neuroblastoma and epithelioid angiomyolipoma.
  • The author concludes that although the routine application of electron microscopy to kidney tumor diagnosis may not be practical, systematic ultrastructural studies of these tumors may aid in the definition of new entities.

  • [Title] [Clinical analysis of renal cell carcinoma: report of 271 cases].
  • OBJECTIVE: To study the diagnosis and treatment of renal cell carcinoma.
  • METHOD: From January 1993 to December 2000 the data of 271 cases of renal cell carcinoma were reviewed.
  • The pathological results showed that 137 cases (61.4%) were clear cell carcinoma, 18 cases (8.
  • 1%) of granular cell carcinoma, 32 cases (14.
  • 3%) being combination of the above two varieties, 23 cases (10.3%) of renal papillary adenocarcinoma, 13 cases being renal cell of other types.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Ultrasonography is the first select examination method of detecting of renal cell carcinoma, and CT scanning is the most valuable diagnostic mean.
  • Early diagnosis and prompt radical nephrectomy or nephron sparing nephrectomy are the critical points for achieving long-term survivals of patients with renal cell carcinoma.

  • [Title] Comparison of STAT3 with HIF-1alpha, Ob and ObR expressions in human endometrioid adenocarcinomas.
  • Signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT3) maintained invasiveness of endometrial cancer cell line.
  • Therefore, we studied STAT3 in relation with HIF-1alpha, Ob, leptin receptor (ObR) and clinical and pathological variables with immunohistochemistry in 48 human endometrioid adenocarcinomas.
  • Nuclear location was a proof of activity of STAT3 and HIF-1 and it was mainly characteristic for granular anti-STAT3 staining and rarely for diffuse HIF-1alpha expression.
  • HIF-1alpha, Ob and ObR presented cytoplasmic granular immunoreactivities.
  • Nevertheless, STAT3 failed to mark cancer advancement, so progressive significance of STAT3 is questionable in endometrioid adenocarcinomas.

  • [Title] Comprehensive evaluation of CDX2 in invasive cervical adenocarcinomas: immunopositivity in the absence of overt colorectal morphology.
  • In addition to staining adenocarcinomas of the alimentary system, studies have demonstrated CDX2 positivity in a percentage of ovarian mucinous and endometrioid tumors, carcinoids, and some adenocarcinomas of other sites such as the urinary bladder, prostate, lung, and pancreas.
  • However, CDX2 immunostaining in cervical adenocarcinomas has not been examined in detail with comparison to important clinicopathologic characteristics including histopathologic subtype, tumor stage, and patient follow-up.
  • In this study of 81 invasive cervical adenocarcinomas, 24 of the cases (30%) demonstrated nuclear positivity.
  • Ten of the 15 (67%) endometrioid tumors had positive nuclear staining, compared with 7 of the 33 (21%) endocervical "usual-type" carcinomas, and 7 of the 33 (21%) remaining subtypes (adenosquamous, glassy cell, clear cell, serous, villoglandular, enteric).
  • Some cases showed granular cytoplasmic staining with or without corresponding nuclear positivity.
  • Our results indicate that cervical adenocarcinomas can show nuclear immunopositivity for CDX2 even in the absence of overt morphologic features of colorectal differentiation.
  • The frequency and pattern of CDX2 staining in the more common histologic subtypes of cervical adenocarcinoma (endocervical usual-type and endometrioid) is parallel to that which is seen for adenocarcinomas of the upper gastrointestinal tract and pancreaticobiliary system.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [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.

  • However, no statistically significant difference in staining intensity was found among the groups of well-differentiated, moderately differentiated and poorly differentiated adenocarcinomas.
  • On the other hand, the staining intensity of signet ring cell carcinoma was significantly weaker than that of the three adenocarcinoma groups.

  • [Title] An oncofetal protein IMP3: a new molecular marker for the detection of esophageal adenocarcinoma and high-grade dysplasia.
  • Accurate diagnosis of dysplasia and adenocarcinoma in patients with Barrett esophagus is critical for clinical decision-making and patient management.
  • The aim of this study was to establish the expression pattern and diagnostic value of IMP3 in Barrett esophagus, dysplasia, and carcinoma.
  • A total of 217 cases (resection, n=56; biopsy, n=161) with 302 lesions (invasive esophageal adenocarcinoma, n=147; metastatic esophageal adenocarcinoma, n=14; high-grade dysplasia of the esophagus, n=52; low-grade dysplasia of the esophagus gland, n=21; and Barrett esophagus, n=68) were examined by immunohistochemistry for IMP3 expression.
  • IMP3 showed strong cytoplasmic granular staining in 138 of 147 (94%) of invasive esophageal adenocarcinomas, 13 of 14 (93%) of metastatic esophageal adenocarcinomas, and 49 of 52 (94%) of high-grade dysplasias.
  • Our findings indicate that IMP3 is a highly sensitive and specific biomarker for the diagnosis of invasive esophageal adenocarcinoma and high-grade dysplasia.
  • The data also suggest that IMP3, an oncofetal protein, may play an important role in malignant transformation in esophageal adenocarcinoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Fine needle aspiration cytology of a metastatic duct carcinoma of the prostate: a case report.
  • BACKGROUND: Prostatic ductal carcinoma (PDC) is a rare variant of prostatic adenocarcinoma.
  • Without proper clinical information, a fine needle aspiration (FNA) diagnosis of metastatic PDC can be challenging as this tumor can morphologically mimic adenocarcinomas from other sites.
  • The tumor cells had abundant, clear cytoplasm, evenly spaced nuclei, finely granular chromatin, inconspicuous nucleoli and occasional mitotic figures.
  • Cell block sections revealed tumor cells forming tubulopapillary architecture lined with tall columnar cells with focal nuclear pseudostratification, reminiscent of uterine endometrial carcinoma.
  • CONCLUSION: Because of the rarity and nonspecific cytomorphologic characteristics of this tumor, clinical history, radiologic findings and a high index of suspicion in conjunction with ancillary studies are important in achieving a correct FNA diagnosis of metastatic PDC.
