  • [Title] Mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the lung, response to EGFR inhibitors, EGFR and K-RAS mutations, and differential diagnosis.
  • Mucoepidermoid carcinoma (MEC) of the lung needs to be carefully distinguished from other lung tumors with similar features, particularly from adenosquamous carcinoma, this latter tumor frequently showing EGFR mutations.
  • In contrast with the data reported by Han et al in the last July issue of Lung Cancer, neither EGFR nor K-RAS mutations were observed in MEC from caucasian patients.

  • [Title] Immunohistochemical staining with deltaNp63 is useful for distinguishing the squamous cell component of adenosquamous cell carcinoma of the lung.
  • The aim of this study was to detect the deltaNp63 expression in the squamous carcinoma component of adenosquamous carcinoma and evaluate its usefulness as a specific squamous carcinoma marker.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Immunohistochemistry was used to analyze the protein expression of deltaNp63 and high molecular weight cytokeratin in paraffin-embedded tumor samples from 17 patients with well-characterized adenosquamous carcinoma.
  • It was easy to discriminate the squamous carcinoma and adenocarcinoma components in all tumors.
  • CONCLUSION: These findings indicated that the deltaNp63 status was useful for distinguishing squamous carcinoma from adenocarcinoma in formalin-postfixed adenosquamous carcinoma specimens.

  • [Title] Fhit protein expression in lung cancer studied by high-throughput tissue microarray.
  • AIM: To study the expression of Fhit protein in lung cancers and its potential relevance in the diagnosis and prognosis of lung cancers.
  • METHODS: Tissue microarrays (TMA) and Immunohistochemistry (IHC) were performed in 321 cases of lung cancers.
  • RESULTS: In our TMA blocks comprising 321 cases of lung cancer, there were 253 (78.8 %) cases valid for Fhit protein assessment.
  • Fhit protein loss in NSCLCs (non-small cell lung carcinoma was significantly lower than in SCLCs (small cell lung cancers) (p < 0.05), in most squamous cell carcinomas (85 out of 105, 81.0 %), and in a smaller portion of adenocarcinomas (53 out of 109, 48.6 %; p < 0.05).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our studies showed that the loss or reduced expression of Fhit, a tumour suppressor gene is a frequent occurrence in lung cancers, with variations amongst different histological subtypes.

  • [Title] [A case of pulmonary adenosquamous cell carcinoma with thin-wall cavities].
  • A 68-year-old man was admitted to our hospital because of continuous cough of three months duration and for investigation of a thin-wall cavitary lesion (> 3 cm) in the right upper lung field.
  • A histological diagnosis of pulmonary adenocarcinoma was obtained by bronchoscopic examination, and he was transferred to the Department of Thoracic Surgery where a right upper lobectomy was performed.
  • Most of the surrounding cavity consisted of the components of a well differentiated squamous cell carcinoma with keratinization and slightly different components of a poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma with mucous production.
  • The final diagnosis was pulmonary adenosquamous cell carcinoma and the postoperative histological classification was T2N2M0 (Stage 3A) because of metastasis to the lymph nodes (#4 and #11).
  • Although squamous cell carcinoma has been reported to be the histological type, tending to form thin-wall cavities among patients with lung cancer reported to be squamous cell carcinoma, recently an increasing number of such cavities have been reported among patients with pulmonary adenocarcinoma.
  • Herein, we have reported a rare case of histological diagnosis of pulmonary adenosquamous cell carcinoma with cavity formation.

  • [Title] [Application of 18F-FDG PET/CT in cervical cancer with elevated levels of serum squamous cell carcinoma antigen during the follow-up].
  • BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Accurate and early diagnosis of recurrence for cervical cancer after the treatment and aggressive salvage treatment could improve the prognosis of this disease.
  • Serum squamous cell carcinoma antigen (SCCAg) is the most commonly used tumor marker for the detection of asymptomatic recurrence of cervical cancer.
  • This study was to evaluate the application and value of (18)F-FDG PET/CT in cervical cancer with elevated of serum SCCAg level during the follow-up.
  • METHODS: Thirty-one patients with cervical cancer with elevated serum SCCAg level during the follow-up undergoing (18)F-FDG PET/CT in Sun Yat-sen University Cancer Center between August 2005 and November 2008 were entered into this retrospective study.
  • RESULTS: All 31 patients'pathological examination showed squamous cell carcinoma, including three adenosquamous carcinoma.
  • Of these 31 patients, three were confirmed to have local recurrent disease, 27 were verified to have metastatic disease and one was diagnosed as primary lung squamous cell carcinoma by pathological or clinical manifestations.
  • The total detection rate of PET/CT for malignancy was 100% (31/31); the diagnostic accuracy of PET/CT for recurrent cervical cancer was 96.8% (30/31).
  • CONCLUSIONS: An elevated level of SCCAg in cervical cancer during the follow-up indicates tumor recurrence.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Clinicopathological characteristics of resected adenosquamous cell carcinoma of the lung: risk of coexistent double cancer.
  • BACKGROUND: adenosquamous carcinoma (ADSQ) of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is a rare disease and the biological behavior and clinicopathological characteristics have not yet been thoroughly described.
  • METHOD: This study reviewed the patient charts of 11 (1.6%) ADSQ cases among 779 patients with primary lung cancer who underwent a lung resection.
  • Five patients had coexistent double cancer including 2 gastric, 1 rectal, 1 prostate and 1 bladder cancer.
  • ADSQ was found less frequently in males than squamous cell carcinoma (SQ).
  • ADSQ was found more frequently in older patients, with advanced stage, advanced T status, and lymph node metastases than adenocarcinoma (AD).
  • The proportion with coexistent double cancer of AD, SQ, and ADSQ were 21.1, 17.6, and 45.5%, respectively.
  • ADSQ had a significantly correlation with double cancer (ADSQ vs. non- ADSQ p = 0.03).
  • A multivariate analysis showed no significant prognostic difference between the patients with ADSQ and non- ADSQ.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In this study, cases with ADSQ showed no significantly prognostic difference in comparison to AD and SQ.
  • However, surgeons must be cautious of any coexistent double cancer because approximately half of all patients with ADSQ of the lung have double cancer.

  • [Title] Remarkably high frequency of EGFR expression in breast carcinomas with squamous differentiation.
  • This study assessed EGFR expression in breast carcinomas with squamous differentiation.
  • The immunohistochemical (IHC) expression of EGFR was evaluated in 39 breast carcinomas with squamous differentiation (30 pure squamous, 6 adenosquamous, 3 carcinosarcomas) by use of the pharmDx assay (clone 2-18C9, DakoCytomation).
  • Cases were considered positive if at least 10% of the cells showed 1+ positivity in the squamous component.
  • Squamous differentiation was confirmed with IHC for CK5-6 (clone D5/16B4, DakoCytomation).
  • At the time of initial diagnosis, 3 patients had distant metastasis.
  • EGFR-positive tumor cells (showing squamous morphology) were also found in 1 bone, 1 lung, and 8 of 11 lymph node metastases available for evaluation.
  • All 11 lymph nodes showed squamous differentiation.
  • Nine of 280 (3%) of lymph node-positive invasive carcinomas on the tissue microarray were EGFR+; review of the initial diagnostic slides failed to reveal squamous features in all but 1 of the 9 EGFR+ tumors.
  • Breast carcinomas with squamous differentiation are a distinct subgroup of breast tumors with a very high frequency of EGFR positivity.

  • [Title] Clinical features of primary lung cancer adjoining pulmonary bulla.
  • A few investigators have suggested a possible association between lung cancer and a pulmonary bulla.
  • Five hundred and forty-five cases with primary lung cancer were studied retrospectively by re-evaluation of their chest computed tomography (CT)-scans.
  • Cancer adjoined a bulla in 19 cases.
  • Bulla/cancer incidence was 3.5%.
  • In comparison with the control group, a ratio of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and large cell carcinoma was significantly high (P<0.05) and differentiation of the carcinoma was poor (P<0.001).
  • Although the pathological staging and lung function data revealed no statistical difference, the survival curve of bulla/cancer group was significantly worse (P<0.01).
  • Primary lung cancer adjoining pulmonary bulla tends to be poor in prognosis, even if it was small in size.

  • [Title] Gender differences in non-small cell lung cancer: a population-based study.
  • BACKGROUND: A retrospective study including all patients with non-small cell lung cancer carcinoma in a population-based registry was performed to characterize gender differences in lung cancer and to analyze the factors influencing prognosis in women.
  • METHODS: We retrieved through the Tuscan Cancer Registry (RTT) archive 2,523 lung tumor cases diagnosed during the period 1996-1998 in the provinces of Florence and Prato, central Italy.
  • We compared the prognosis within 464 non-small lung cancer women and 1,798 men in a population-based case series.
  • The influence of the following variables on postoperative survival were analyzed: age, cell type, pathologic T and N status, site of tumor and type of surgical resection.
  • RESULTS: The age at diagnosis was similar in women and in men.
  • Women were significantly more likely to have adenocarcinoma but less likely to have squamous cell carcinoma compared with men.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Lung cancer was more frequent in men than in women, but overall survival is similar.
  • Differences in lung cancer histology and rate of pneumonectomies were found between men and women.

  • [Title] [Autopsy case of von Recklinghausen's disease associated with lung cancer, gastrointestinal stromal tumor of the stomach, and duodenal carcinoid tumor].
  • Chest X-ray revealed multiple emphysematous bullae in both lungs and a tumor shadow in the right upper lobe.
  • The tumor was diagnosed as a non-small-cell lung cancer with direct invasion to the adjacent rib.
  • Autopsy revealed multiple emphysematous bullae, poorly differentiated adenosquamous cell carcinoma of the lung, gastrointestinal stromal tumor of the stomach, and duodenal carcinoid tumor.
  • This case suggests the possibility that von Recklinghausen's disease associated with emphysematous bullae is a risk factor for lung cancer.
  • Although von Recklinghausen's disease is reportedly associated with various malignant tumors, it is quite rare for von Recklinghausen's disease to be associated with triple non-neurogenic tumors.
