  • [Title] Synchronous anorectal melanoma.
  • Anorectal melanoma is a very rare tumor with poor prognosis.
  • We report a case of a 75-years-old male patient who presented with a history of recurrent rectal bleeding, and whose histopathological diagnosis was melanoma.
  • Microscopic examination and immunohistochemical analysis of both tumors confirmed the diagnosis of melanoma.
  • This case represents multiple synchronous primary melanoma of the anorectal region, with a possibility that one of the lesions is primary melanoma and the second one is a satellite lesion.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Optimizing local control in anorectal melanoma.
  • BACKGROUND: Wide local excision (WLE) of anorectal melanoma is associated with a high incidence of local recurrence.
  • AIM: To identify the optimal method of local treatment in anorectal melanoma.
  • SETTINGS AND DESIGN: Retrospective study in a tertiary cancer centre.
  • CONCLUSION: Local treatment of anorectal melanoma should be individualized.
  • WLE with adjuvant radiation seems to offer good locoregional control without reducing the survival and may be an option of treatment for patients with small, superficial anorectal melanoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Diffuse anorectal melanoma; review of the current diagnostic and treatment aspects based on a case report.
  • Primary anorectal melanoma is a rare and aggressive disease.
  • Such a lesion should always raise a high index of suspicion in any gastroenterologist or surgeon to prompt surgery, since early radical excision is the only treatment option.Herein, we report a case of a 57-year-old man with a diffuse anal canal melanoma and give reference to the current diagnostic and treatment options.

  • OBJECTIVE: To present two cases of anorectal malignant melanoma as due to its non specific presentation and rarity they are often misdiagnosed like hemorrhoids.
  • BACKGROUND: Anal melanomas are rare tumors that constitute less than 1% of the malignant colorectal tumors and represent both a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge to physicians.
  • Melanomas are often misdiagnosed by a lot of anorectal conditions and diagnosis must be suspected in patients with an anal mass.
  • CASE REPORT: We present two anorectal cases of malignant melanoma treated by wide local excision, the principal complain in both patients was the presence of an anal mass and bleeding.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Anal melanoma is a rare entity with a poor prognosis.

  • [Title] Factors affecting survival in patients with anal melanoma.
  • Anal melanoma is an aggressive tumor with a predilection for early infiltration and distant spread, resulting in poor overall survival.
  • Because anal melanoma is rare, only small case series are reported in the literature, making it difficult to draw conclusions about optimal treatment and outcome.
  • The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results database was used to identify patients with anal melanomas from 1973 to 2001.
  • In addition to demographics, disease extent at presentation, treatment administered, overall survival, and survival by decade of diagnosis were collected.
  • A total of 126 patients with a mean age of 69.2 years was diagnosed with anal melanoma.
  • Neither age at diagnosis, operation performed, nor use of radiation significantly affected survival.
  • Anal melanoma remains an uncommon but lethal disease.

  • Primary melanoma of the anal region is a rare pathological entity and its prognosis is generally poor.
  • The aim of this report is to demonstrate the feasibility of the sentinel lymph node (SLN) procedure with combined technique in patients with anal melanoma.
  • We report of two cases with anal melanoma that had wide local excision of the primary lesion and was referred for further evaluation.
  • Consequently, we suggest that SLN procedure with combined technique is also a useful technique in malignant melanomas similar to other anal canal cancers.

  • Malignant melanoma (MM) of the anal region is an uncommon disease.
  • Owing to delayed diagnosis and early metastases, the prognosis is often poor.
  • Anorectal melanomas (AM) are most common in the rectum, followed by the anal canal and anal verge.
  • The diagnosis of an AM is usually made using a biopsy.
  • Adjuvant immunohistological markers are the calcium-binding protein S-100, the melanoma antigen HMB-45, the melanoma-expressed protein Melan A, and microphthalmia-associated transcription factor (MiTF).
  • We report on a 39-year old man who presented with a 5-week history of recurrent prolapse of an anal tumour.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Management of less common tumors of the colon, rectum, and anus.
  • The majority of colorectal and anal malignancies are adenocarcinomas and squamous cell cancers, respectively.
  • Despite the predominance of these neoplasms in these locations, rare histiotypes of the colon, rectum, and anus do occur.
  • These histotypes include but are not limited to lymphoma, melanoma, diffuse cavernous hemangioma, and sarcomas, such as leiomyosarcoma or Kaposi's sarcoma.
  • These tumors often present challenges to clinicians with respect to diagnosis, staging, management, and pathology because of their unfamiliarity.
  • A Medline search using "colon," "rectum,""anus," "lymphoma," "melanoma," "diffuse cavernous hemangioma," "squamous cell carcinoma," "carcinoid," "sarcoma," "leiomyosarcoma," "Kaposi's sarcoma," "Paget's disease," "Bowen's disease," and "basal cell carcinoma" as key words was performed as well as a cross-referencing of the bibliography cited in each work.
  • Rare tumors of the colon, rectum, and anus present diagnostic and management dilemmas for clinicians.
  • For uncommon anal lesions, such as Bowen's disease, Paget's disease, and basal cell carcinoma, wide local excision (WLE) with negative margins is the standard of care.
  • For other lesions such as anorectal melanoma or leiomyosarcoma, abdominal perineal resection versus WLE is still being debated.

  • [Title] Anorectal amelanotic melanoma.
  • OBJECTIVE: Anorectal melanoma is a rare, highly malignant tumour with a poor 5 year survival of 10%.
  • METHOD: We report three cases of amelanotic anorectal melanomas and integrate our data with six case reports of amelanotic malignant melanoma from the literature.
  • Rectal bleeding was the leading symptom in all cases with a mean duration of 4 months before diagnosis.
  • CONCLUSION: Early diagnosis is key for efficient treatment and improved survival rate for patients with this unusual variant of melanoma.
  • There is no difference in terms of age, time of diagnosis, stage and survival between pigmented and amelanotic anorectal melanoma.

  • [Title] Melanoma with cartilaginous differentiation: Diagnostic challenge on fine-needle aspiration with emphasis on differential diagnosis.
  • Fine-needle aspiration (FNA) is a minimally invasive, fast, and accurate diagnostic method for the evaluation of patients with locally recurrent or distant metastases of malignant melanoma.
  • In the vast majority of cases, the diagnosis is straightforward with the characteristic cytologic features well documented in the literature.
  • Divergent differentiation (chondroid, neural, myofibroblastic, and osteocartilagenous) in a melanoma is rare and can potentially create diagnostic challenges if the evaluator is unaware of the same.
  • We report a case of a 46-year-old female with a history of primary anal melanoma who presented with a groin mass.
  • The FNA of the groin mass showed a neoplasm rich in chondroid matrix and raised the possibility of a second primary mesenchymal neoplasm rather than metastasis from the patient's known primary anal melanoma.
  • A review of the histologic features of the anal melanoma showed divergent chondroid differentiation in the anal melanoma with the metastatic deposit in the groin exhibiting extensive chondroid differentiation.

  • [Title] Anorectal melanoma in childhood and adolescence.
  • The mucosal surfaces represent the third most common site of origin for melanoma, after the skin and ocular uveal tract.
  • However, anorectal mucosal melanoma is a rare neoplasm, usually occurring in the sixth and seventh decades of life.
  • The prognosis of anorectal melanoma is poor; this is at least in part attributable to the relatively large size that such tumors have frequently achieved at presentation, as well as their rich vascular network.
  • In particular, anorectal melanoma in children and adolescents is extraordinarily uncommon.
  • Systematic collation and evaluation of pediatric melanomas of the anus and rectum are needed, to better define the biologic attributes of those neoplasms.

  • The diagnosis is unfortunately realized in the advanced stage.
  • The mass has been biopsed during the rectoscopy and the diagnosis of the malignant melamoma has been confirmed.
  • The rectal touch emphasizes a budy rectal polypoid tumor about 6 cm that the biopsies confirmed the diagnosis of invasive malignant.
  • The rectal touch showed a rectal tumor far about 6 cm from the amal margin, the biopsy during the rectoscopy confirmed the diagnosis of the pigmented and little invasive malignant melanoma.
  • The inclusion of the primary anorectal malignant melanoma in the diagnosis of the afflictins of the anorectal region would permit an improvement of this affliction prognosis, this is still unfortunate when the diagnosis is late.

  • [Title] DMBT1 expression distinguishes anorectal from cutaneous melanoma.
  • AIMS: Anorectal melanoma (AM) forms a rare but highly malignant subset of mucosal melanoma with an extremely poor prognosis.
  • Although AMs display histological and immunohistochemical features very similar to cutaneous melanoma (CM), no association exists either with exposure to ultraviolet light or with melanocytic naevi.
  • The aim was to carry out expression analyses of classical immunohistochemical markers and of the protein deleted in malignant brain tumours 1 (DMBT1) in cases of primary anorectal malignant melanoma and CM.
  • METHODS AND RESULTS: Expression analyses of classical immunohistochemical markers (S100, HMB45, Melan A and MiTF) and of the protein DMBT1 were carried out in 27 cases of primary anorectal malignant melanoma and 26 cases of CM.
  • All AM cases analysed showed expression of at least three of the classical markers for melanoma.

  • [Title] Primary amelanotic anorectal melanoma: an uncommon neoplasia with poor prognosis.
  • BACKGROUND: Anorectal melanoma is a rare and aggressive mucosal cancer.
  • There is usually a delay in diagnosis because about 30% of these cancers are amelanotic and are often mistaken for benign conditions.
  • Herein, we report a case of amelanotic anorectal malignant melanoma with an unusual metastatic deposit in the vulva and also review the literature.
  • CASE REPORT: A 67-year-old woman presented with a history of prolapse of an anal tumour.
  • Histological examination and immunohistochemical staining of all tumours demonstrated malignant melanoma.
  • DISCUSSION: Nine cases of amelanotic malignant melanoma have been reported in the literature.
  • The age at diagnosis ranged from 45 to 77 years.
  • Anorectal melanoma is most common in the rectum, followed by the anal canal.
  • Our case is the tenth case of amelanotic anorectal melanoma and probably corresponds to multiple synchronous primary melanomas of the anorectal region and the vulva, with the possibility that one of the lesions is a primary melanoma and the others are satellite lesions.

  • At the moment of diagnosis even 30% of the patients have distant metastases.
  • Modern approach to the anal canal melanoma treatment implies two types of intervention: wide local excision preserving the sphincter mechanism and abdominoperineal resection of the rectum.
  • The authors report on a 61 years old women in which anal canal melanoma with left inguinal lymphatic metastases was detected during the inspection of "haemorrhoids".
  • After the diagnosis was established, abdominoperineal resection of the rectum was performed with dissection of both inguinal regions.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Wide local excision could be considered as the initial treatment of primary anorectal malignant melanoma.
  • BACKGROUND: Anorectal malignant melanoma was a rare disease with extremely poor prognosis.
  • The aim of this study was to explore the clinical characteristic, diagnosis and treatment strategies of anorectal malignant melanoma.
  • METHODS: The data of 57 patients with anorectal malignant melanoma was collected and retrospectively analyzed.
  • RESULTS: Rectal bleeding and anal mass were found to be common symptoms of anorectal malignant melanoma.
  • The preoperative diagnosis rate of anorectal malignant melanoma was 48.6%.
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study identified no survival advantage to abdominoperineal resection in treatment of anorectal malignant melanoma, and we propose that wide local excision could be considered as the initial treatment of choice.

  • PURPOSE: To determine the ocular safety of CP-675,206 (Pfizer, New York, New York, USA), a fully human anti-cytotoxic T lymphocyte-associated antigen 4 monoclonal antibody in clinical trials of immunotherapy of metastatic melanoma.
  • DESIGN: Prospective, nonrandomized study of the eye and vision in phase I/II clinical trials of CP-675,206 in metastatic melanoma conducted at the University of California, Los Angeles.
  • METHODS: Patients with regional or distant metastatic melanoma were enrolled in phase I/II clinical trials evaluating the safety and antitumor efficacy of CP-675,206 alone or in combination with melanoma antigen peptide-pulsed dendritic cell vaccines.
  • RESULTS: Twenty patients with metastatic melanoma arising from the skin, mucosa, eye, or unknown site were evaluated.
  • A subset of patients receiving CP-675,206 demonstrated antitumor efficacy with partial response or complete response of metastatic melanoma.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In this study, CP-675,206 immunotherapy for metastatic melanoma did not adversely affect the eye or vision.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] BD ProEx C immunostaining in extramammary Paget's disease and perineal melanoma.
  • The differential diagnosis of perineal biopsies can include squamous intraepithelial lesions, extramammary Paget's disease, and melanoma.
  • BD ProEx C is a recently developed immunoassay that targets expression of two genes shown to be associated with cervical cancer.
  • Immunostaining for ProEx C has been validated in cervical cytology and positive staining has also been shown to be strongly associated with human papilloma virus (HPV)-induced cervical and anal intraepithelial neoplasia in biopsies.
  • We observed positive staining for ProEx C in Paget cells in all of 26 cases of Paget's disease irrespective of tissue site (extramammary, mammary) and in melanoma cells in all of 12 cases of primary perineal melanoma with immunostaining in >50% of malignant cells in 73% of Paget disease cases and 43% of perineal melanoma cases.
  • In situ hybridization was negative for low-risk and high-risk HPV subtypes in all Paget and melanoma cases that were tested.
  • Currently neither of these lesions is known to be HPV related although according to the literature the possibility of a role for HPV in melanoma is still unsettled.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Importance of clear resection margins in anorectal malignant melanoma.
  • BACKGROUND: Anorectal melanoma is rare and surgery is the recommended primary treatment.
  • METHODS: From the Swedish National Cancer Registry, 251 patients with anorectal melanoma were identified from 1960 to 1999.
  • CONCLUSION: Both APR and LE seem appropriate for anorectal melanoma provided clear margins can be achieved; prognosis is poor regardless of surgical approach.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Primary small cell malignant melanoma of the rectum: case report of a very rare tumor.
  • Rectal/anorectal malignant melanomas are highly aggressive tumors with a poor prognosis and low 5-year survival rate.
  • Of the well-known histological variants of malignant melanoma, the small cell subtype is also very uncommon; consequently, small cell anorectal malignant melanoma is an exceedingly rare occurrence.
  • In this article, the authors provide a detailed clinicopathological description of small cell malignant melanoma of the rectum, documenting clinical, histological, immunohistochemical, and ultrastructural features, to add to the sparse references on this tumor in the literature.
  • The patient was a 53-year-old woman with a mass 2 cm from the anus, which was surgically removed.
  • In histological sections, the tumor was a small cell malignant melanoma, with a tumor cell diameter of 7.6+/-1.0 microm, and a range of 5.5-10.7 microm (N = 100).
  • This article is one of the few detailed clinicopathological documentations of a small cell malignant melanoma of the rectum (anorectum) and the first to have the diagnosis confirmed ultrastructurally by the identification of melanosomes.
  • The present case adds to the 3 mainly or entirely small cell anorectal malignant melanomas described in the literature.
  • Documentation of these unusual morphological variants is important for identifying any distinctive outcome they might exhibit compared with conventional malignant melanoma.

  • [Title] Practice patterns and outcomes for anorectal melanoma in the USA, reviewing three decades of treatment: is more extensive surgical resection beneficial in all patients?
  • INTRODUCTION: Historically, the treatment of anorectal melanoma has been abdominoperineal resection (APR), but more recently local resection alone.
  • Although treatment at melanoma centers has become less aggressive, the adoption of this approach and related outcomes across the USA is unknown.
  • METHODS: The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database was queried to identify patients treated for anorectal melanoma (1973-2003).
  • CONCLUSION: This study, the largest series to analyze widespread practice patterns and outcomes for anorectal melanoma in the USA, did not reveal a survival difference comparing TAE with APR.

  • The aim of this study was to describe anal cancer in Iceland in 1987-2003 with respect to incidence, histologic type, treatment, recurrence rate and survival.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: This is a retrospective study in which all malignant anal tumours diagnosed in Iceland in the period 1987-2003 were reviewed with respect to patient outcome.
  • This is a nationwide, population-based study of malignant tumours of the anal region.
  • RESULTS: From 1987-2003 thirty-eight patients were diagnosed with anal cancer, 28 females and 10 males.
  • The average age at diagnosis was 63.4 years.
  • Age standardized incidence rates for anal cancer in Iceland were 0.3 (+/-0.2) of 100.000 males and 0.9 (+/-0.4) of 100.000 females.
  • The remaining histologic types were malignant melanoma (n=3), adenosquamous carcinoma (n=1), adenocarcinoma (n=1), GIST (n=1) and undifferentiated carcinoma (n=2).
  • The duration of symptoms before diagnosis ranged from 2 weeks to 96 months (mean value 3.5 months).
  • Twelve patients had recurrent cancer.
  • The mean value of the time from diagnosis of the primary to the recurrent cancer was 15.6 months (range, 5.9-117).
  • Sixteen patients remain with disease and ten have died of anal cancer.
  • The five year survival rate for patients diagnosed in the years 1987 to 1998 is 75% but cancer-specific survival is 82%.
  • CONCLUSION: Age-standardized incidence for anal cancer in Iceland is similar to other regions.
  • Average age at diagnosis, male-female ratio and prognosis is similar to reports in other studies.
  • The proportion of adenocarcinoma of the anus is lower in Iceland than elsewhere.

  • OBJECTIVE: To describe changes in cancer incidence in people with HIV in Australia since the introduction of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART).
  • DESIGN: Population-based, retrospective cohort study of people with HIV (n = 20 232) using data linkage between national registers of HIV/AIDS and cancer in 1982-2004.
  • METHODS: Age-adjusted and sex-adjusted incidence rate ratios with 95% confidence intervals were calculated to compare site-specific cancer incidence during the early (1996-1999) and late (2000-2004) HAART periods with that prior to HAART (1982-1995).
  • Incidence of anal cancer was unchanged (Ptrend = 0.451) and remained raised more than 30-fold.
  • Incidence declined significantly for melanoma (Ptrend = 0.041) and prostate cancer (Ptrend = 0.026), and, during the late-HAART period, was lower than in the general population for both cancers.
  • Incidence of colorectal cancer was consistently lower than in the general population.
  • Incidence of anal cancer has remained stable, and it is now the third most common cancer in HIV-infected Australians.
  • Reasons for the reduced incidence of colorectal and prostate cancer, and more recently of melanoma, are unclear.

  • [Title] Poorly differentiated tumours of the anal canal: a diagnostic strategy for the surgical pathologist.
  • Poorly differentiated malignancies affecting the anal canal are uncommon but pose diagnostic difficulties because of the wide range of normal cell types that may occur within a limited anatomical region.
  • The range of lesions that may present as poorly differentiated tumours includes squamous cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, small and large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma, neuroendocrine carcinoma expressing epithelial cytokeratins and other patterns of mixed differentiation, undifferentiated carcinoma, malignant melanoma, lymphoma and secondary tumours.
  • This review discusses the differential diagnosis of these neoplasms with the aid of short illustrative case studies.

65. Boscoe FP, Schymura MJ: Solar ultraviolet-B exposure and cancer incidence and mortality in the United States, 1993-2002. BMC Cancer; 2006 Nov 10;6:264

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Solar ultraviolet-B exposure and cancer incidence and mortality in the United States, 1993-2002.
  • BACKGROUND: An inverse relationship between solar ultraviolet-B (UV-B) exposure and non-skin cancer mortality has long been reported.
  • METHODS: We extend the analysis of this relationship to include cancer incidence as well as mortality, using higher quality and higher resolution data sets than have typically been available.
  • Over three million incident cancer cases between 1998 and 2002 and three million cancer deaths between 1993 and 2002 in the continental United States were regressed against daily satellite-measured solar UV-B levels, adjusting for numerous confounders.
  • Relative risks of reduced solar UV-B exposure were calculated for thirty-two different cancer sites.
  • RESULTS: For non-Hispanic whites, an inverse relationship between solar UV-B exposure and cancer incidence and mortality was observed for ten sites: bladder, colon, Hodgkin lymphoma, myeloma, other biliary, prostate, rectum, stomach, uterus, and vulva.
  • A positive association between solar UV-B exposure and cancer mortality and incidence was found for anus, cervix, oral cavity, melanoma, and other non-epithelial skin cancer.
  • CONCLUSION: This paper adds to the mounting evidence for the influential role of solar UV-B exposure on cancer, particularly for some of the less-well studied digestive cancers.
  • The relative risks for cancer incidence are similar to those for cancer mortality for most sites.
  • Our findings are generally consistent with the published literature, and include three cancer sites not previously linked with solar UV-B exposure, to our knowledge: leukemia, small intestine, and vulva.

  • [Title] L576P KIT mutation in anal melanomas correlates with KIT protein expression and is sensitive to specific kinase inhibition.
  • Activating mutations in either BRAF or NRAS are seen in a significant number of malignant melanomas, but their incidence appears to be dependent to ultraviolet light exposure.
  • More recently, activating KIT mutations have been described in rare cases of metastatic melanoma, without further reference to their clinical phenotypes.
  • In this study, we investigated a group of anal melanomas for the presence of BRAF, NRAS, KIT and PDGFRA mutations.
  • No BRAF or PDGFRA mutations were identified in either KIT positive or negative anal melanomas.
  • These results suggest that a subset of anal melanomas show activating KIT mutations, which are susceptible for therapy with specific kinase inhibitors.

  • [Title] Intensity-modulated radiation therapy for anal malignancies: a preliminary toxicity and disease outcomes analysis.
  • PURPOSE: Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) has the potential to reduce toxicities associated with chemoradiotherapy in the treatment of anal cancer.
  • This study reports the results of using IMRT in the treatment of anal cancer.
  • METHODS AND MATERIALS: Records of patients with anal malignancies treated with IMRT at Duke University were reviewed.
  • RESULTS: Forty-seven patients with anal malignancy (89% canal, 11% perianal skin) were treated with IMRT between August 2006 and September 2008.
  • CONCLUSIONS: IMRT-based chemoradiotherapy for anal cancer results in significant reductions in normal tissue dose and acute toxicities versus historic controls treated without IMRT, leading to reduced rates of toxicity-related treatment interruption.
  • IMRT is emerging as a standard therapy for anal cancer.

71. Altieri A, Hemminki K: Number of siblings and the risk of solid tumours: a nation-wide study. Br J Cancer; 2007 Jun 4;96(11):1755-9

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • We analysed the effects of number of siblings on the risk of solid tumours using the Swedish Family-Cancer Database, including population-based information on over 11 million individuals and more than 178,000 cancer patients diagnosed between 1958 and 2004.
  • Having eight or more siblings vs none increased the risk of stomach cancer (RR=1.83, 95% confidence interval (CI), 1.44-2.34).
  • Anal cancer diagnosed before age 40 showed the strongest association with the total siblings (RR=3.27, 95% CI, 2.04-5.26 for five or more siblings vs none).
  • Endometrial (RR=0.76, 95% CI, 0.70-0.82), testicular (RR=0.71, 95% CI, 0.62-0.82), skin cancer (RR=0.82, 95% CI, 0.69-0.97) and melanoma (RR=0.72, 95% CI, 0.65-0.79) showed strong decreased risks for five or more siblings vs none.
  • Prostate cancer risk for those with five or more older siblings vs none was 1.38 (95% CI, 1.23-1.55).
  • Having five or more younger siblings was most strongly associated with stomach cancer (RR=1.59, 95% CI, 1.29-1.95) and melanoma (RR=0.68, 95% CI, 0.59-0.79).
  • We conclude that sibship characteristics are strong correlates of cancer risk at several sites; plausible interpretations include socioeconomic status.

  • [Title] Pattern of cancer risk in persons with AIDS in Italy in the HAART era.
  • A record-linkage study was carried out between the Italian AIDS Registry and 24 Italian cancer registries to compare cancer excess among persons with HIV/AIDS (PWHA) before and after the introduction of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) in 1996.
  • SIR for Kaposi sarcoma (KS) and non-Hodgkin lymphoma greatly decreased in 1997-2004 compared with 1986-1996, but high SIRs for KS persisted in the increasingly large fraction of PWHA who had an interval of <1 year between first HIV-positive test and AIDS diagnosis.
  • A significant excess of liver cancer (SIR=6.4) emerged in 1997-2004, whereas the SIRs for cancer of the cervix (41.5), anus (44.0), lung (4.1), brain (3.2), skin (non-melanoma, 1.8), Hodgkin lymphoma (20.7), myeloma (3.9), and non-AIDS-defining cancers (2.2) were similarly elevated in the two periods.
  • The excess of some potentially preventable cancers in PWHA suggests that HAART use must be accompanied by cancer-prevention strategies, notably antismoking and cervical cancer screening programmes.

  • [Title] Primary ano-rectal malignant melanomas within a population-based national patient series in Sweden during 40 years.
  • PURPOSE: To analyze 251 patients (101 males and 150 females) diagnosed with ano-rectal malignant melanoma (ARMM) reported to the Swedish National Cancer Registry during 1960-1999.
  • 54% of the tumours were primary in the anal canal, 24% engaged the whole ano-rectal unit and 10% were located at the anal verge (11% unknown primary site).
  • Although ARMM were rare in absolute numbers, their density (number of tumours/square unit) was higher than that of cutaneous malignant melanomas (CMM) on average.
  • The majority of ARMM emerged primary in the anal canal and a primary location exclusively in the colonic mucosa of the rectum is questionable.
  • The higher density of ARMM as compared to the average density of CMM tallies with the result of our previous studies on vulvar melanoma and might be instrumental in exploring non-UV light associated factors in melanoma genesis.
  • The concentration of patients with anal squamous cell carcinoma to population-dense urban areas, as previously reported, was not found in cases of ARMM.

  • [Title] Diagnostic problems in anal pathology.
  • Anal squamous cell carcinoma and its precursor lesions are increasing in incidence in the United States and Europe.
  • Screening protocols for at-risk patients are under active investigation and pathologists are often asked to assess anal canal and perianal biopsies for the presence of dysplasia and/or invasive carcinoma.
  • Because underdiagnosis and overdiagnosis of anal cancer and precancer may lead to inappropriate treatment, it is important for the pathologist to be aware of current screening strategies, specific risk lesions, and the role of pathology in initial diagnosis and evaluation of anal biopsy and/or resection specimens.
  • Standardized histologic criteria and uniform terminology should be used for reporting all anal canal and perianal squamous intraepithelial lesions.
  • HPV subtyping, anal cytology, and recently identified biomarkers, such as p16 and Becton Dickinson ProEx C may provide additional information in problematic cases, but it is important to be aware of the limitations of these assays.
  • HPV has been linked to all the major histologic subtypes of anal carcinoma (eg, basaloid, cloacogenic, transitional, etc.) and this association is strongest for anal canal lesions.
  • With the possible exception of the microcystic pattern, histologic subtype does not seem to predict prognosis; and anal squamous cell carcinomas should be classified as either keratinizing or nonkeratinizing.
  • Poorly differentiated squamous cell carcinomas have a worse prognosis and should be distinguished from poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma, melanoma, and neuroendocrine tumors.
  • As all anal condylomata may harbor foci of high-grade dysplasia or invasive carcinoma, careful sectioning and complete histologic examination is required.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Anogenital lesions induced by human papillomaviruses (HPV) are due to both high-risk HPV types involved in carcinogenesis of the cervix (and also, to a lesser extent, of the vulva, anus and vagina) and to low-risk HPV types that cause external genital warts in the perianal region, perineum, vulva and vagina (less often the cervix).
  • Cervical cancer is thus virus-induced, and there is a continuum from intraepithelial lesions to invasive cancer.
  • Although the causal link between human genital papillomavirus infection and cervical neoplasia is well established, the role of beta-HPV in non melanoma skin cancers is unclear.

  • HPV-16 and -18 account for about 70% of cancers of the cervix, vagina, and anus and for about 30-40% of cancers of the vulva, penis, and oropharynx.
  • Other cancers causally linked to HPV are non-melanoma skin cancer and cancer of the conjunctiva.
  • Although HPV is a necessary cause of cervical cancer, it is not a sufficient cause.

  • [Title] [Melanoma adrenal metastasis: report of 3 cases and literature review].
  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the clinical diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of melanoma adrenal metastasis.
  • METHODS: A total of 48 cases of malignant melanoma from 1985 to 2007 were reviewed.
  • And three cases of melanoma adrenal metastasis were analyzed.
  • Two cases had a history of cutaneous melanoma and another one suffered previously from anal melanoma.
  • The other two cases underwent complete resection of melanoma metastasis.
  • When contralateral adrenal metastasis of melanoma was found 6 months later, left adrenalectomy laparoscopically was performed.
  • CONCLUSION: Melanoma metastasis to adrenal gland is rare and it generally has a poor prognosis.
  • Patients with adrenal metastases from melanoma, either isolated or with a limited number of additional metastases, may achieve a survival benefit from surgical resection if all visible lesions are removed.
