  • BACKGROUND: During Mohs surgery, there are instances in which residual tumor cells may be difficult to detect, thereby increasing the risk of incomplete excision and tumor recurrence.
  • RESULTS: Various immunostains have proved useful in detecting tumor cells in various malignancies, including melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, extramammary Paget's disease, primary cutaneous mucinous carcinoma, granular cell tumor, and trichilemmal carcinoma.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In this article, we review immunohistochemical stains that have been employed in Mohs micrographic surgery and evaluate their utility in enhancing detection of residual tumors with respect to tumor type, particularly in situations in which detection of residual tumor may be difficult.

  • [Title] Esophageal carcinosarcoma with basaloid squamous cell carcinoma and osteosarcoma.
  • Carcinosarcoma of the esophagus is a rare malignant neoplasm.
  • It often presents as a large intraluminal polypoid tumor with early onset of symptoms resulting in prompt diagnosis.
  • We present here the first case of a carcinosarcoma of the esophagus that had a basaloid squamous cell carcinoma component in addition to the osteosarcoma and without a transitional zone.
  • A 57-year-old man was diagnosed with a polypoid tumor in middle third of the esophagus causing dysphagia.
  • Local recurrence and solitary pulmonary metastasis occurred 16 and 30 months after initial excision of the tumor, respectively.

  • [Title] Skin cancer risk among solid organ recipients: a nationwide cohort study in Denmark.
  • This study assessed the risk of skin cancer following transplantation of 4 types of solid organs, and the risk of skin cancer in patients with chronic diseases that lead to organ transplantations.
  • Linkage to the Danish Cancer Registry allowed complete follow-up for basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and malignant melanoma.
  • The SIR for squamous cell carcinoma was highest among heart (SIR = 113; 95% CI: 74-166), then renal (SIR = 81; 95% CI: 68-96), lung (SIR = 65; 95% CI: 28-128) and liver (SIR = 60; 95% CI: 27-113) recipients.
  • SIR for squamous cell carcinoma was 4.8 (95% CI: 2.2-9.0) among renal failure patients, but not greatly elevated among patients with the other chronic diseases studied.
  • Organ transplantation is a risk factor for squamous cell carcinoma, with immunosuppressive treatments being the most likely explanation for the association.

  • [Title] Basaloid squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus: assessment for high-risk human papillomavirus and related molecular markers.
  • Basaloid squamous cell carcinoma (BSCC) of the esophagus is rare, historically confused for adenoid cystic carcinoma, and recently shown to behave similar to conventional, keratinizing esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.
  • HPVs role in esophageal squamous cell carcinomas is less certain, and to our knowledge, a direct examination of esophageal BSCC for high-risk HPV has not been performed earlier.
  • Twenty-two cases of keratinizing esophageal squamous cell carcinoma served as controls.
  • Differential p16 and p53 expression in BSCC suggests that these tumors are molecularly distinct from conventional esophageal squamous cell carcinomas.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Incidence of basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas in a population younger than 40 years.
  • CONTEXT: The incidence of nonmelanoma skin cancer is increasing rapidly among elderly persons, but little is known about its incidence in the population younger than 40 years.
  • OBJECTIVES: To estimate the sex- and age-specific incidences of basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma in persons younger than 40 years in Olmsted County, Minnesota, and to evaluate change in incidence over time; to describe the clinical presentation, rate of recurrence and metastasis, and histologic characteristics of these tumors in this population-based sample.
  • PARTICIPANTS: Patients younger than 40 years with basal cell carcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma diagnosed between 1976 and 2003.
  • MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Incident basal cell carcinomas and squamous cell carcinomas and change in incidence of these tumors over time.
  • RESULTS: During the study period, 451 incident basal cell carcinomas were diagnosed in 417 patients and 70 incident squamous cell carcinomas were diagnosed in 68 patients.
  • Of these tumors, 328 were histologically confirmed basal cell carcinomas and 51 were histologically confirmed squamous cell carcinomas.
  • Overall, the age-adjusted incidence of basal cell carcinoma per 100,000 persons was 25.9 (95% confidence interval [CI], 22.6-29.2) for women and 20.9 (95% CI, 17.8-23.9) for men.
  • The incidence of basal cell carcinoma increased significantly during the study period among women (P<.001) but not men (P = .19).
  • Nodular basal cell carcinoma was the most common histologic subtype; 43.0% of tumors were solely nodular basal cell carcinoma and 11.0% had a mixed composition, including the nodular subtype.
  • The incidence of squamous cell carcinoma was similar in men and women, with an average age- and sex-adjusted incidence per 100 000 persons of 3.9 (95% CI, 3.0-4.8); the incidence of squamous cell carcinoma increased significantly over the study period among both women (P = .01) and men (P = .04).
  • CONCLUSIONS: This population-based study demonstrated an increase in the incidence of nonmelanoma skin cancer among young women and men residing in Olmsted County, Minnesota.
  • There was a disproportionate increase in basal cell carcinoma in young women.
  • This increase may lead to an exponential increase in the overall occurrence of nonmelanoma skin cancers over time as this population ages, which emphasizes the need to focus on skin cancer prevention in young adults.

  • [Title] How to diagnose nonpigmented skin tumors: a review of vascular structures seen with dermoscopy: part II. Nonmelanocytic skin tumors.
  • Nonmelanoma skin cancer refers to a broad class of tumors, including actinic keratosis, basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma, and as a group these are the most frequent cancers occurring in light skinned humans.
  • In contrast to the rarity of amelanotic melanoma, nonmelanoma skin cancer commonly lacks pigmentation.
  • Dermoscopy improves the clinical diagnosis of nonpigmented skin tumors by allowing the visualization of specific vascular structures that are usually not visible to the naked eye.
  • Dermoscopic vascular patterns of several nonmelanocytic nonpigmented skin tumors, such as sebaceous hyperplasia, seborrheic keratosis, clear cell acanthoma, Bowen disease, or nodular cystic basal cell carcinoma are highly specific, allowing a ready diagnosis in most cases.
  • In the second part of this review of dermoscopic vascular structures of nonpigmented skin tumors, the dermoscopic patterns associated with benign and malignant nonmelanocytic skin tumors and recommendations for the management of these tumors will be discussed.

  • Skin carcinomas represent 90-95% of skin cancers.
  • With the objective of identifying the histopathological and clinical-progressive profile of skin carcinomas, we undertook a retrospective study over a period of seven years, which included a total of 1688 patients with carcinoma of the skin, hospitalized and treated in Craiova Dermatology Clinic between January 1999 and December 2006.
  • Patient data such as identification data, environment, profession, phototype, location of cancer, history of the disease, clinical diagnosis, histopathological diagnosis and response to treatment were included in clinical charts.
  • Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) was diagnosed in a total of 1162 patients, representing 68.84% of cases taken to the study.
  • The most common clinical forms were: pearly BCC (37.95%), nodular BCC (29%), and superficial BCC (22.03%).
  • Regarding the histological type, the most frequent forms were: BCC polymorphic (29.95%), BCC solid (24.96%), and keratinized BCC (19.97%).
  • Epidermoid carcinoma (EC) was encountered in a total of 482 patients, representing 28.55% of all cases.
  • Metatypical carcinoma (MC) was found in 44 patients (2.61%).
  • This type of cancer did not presented clinical particular signs, the diagnosis was strictly pathological.

  • The tumor (4.0 x 2.5 x 2.2 cm) was a pedunculated polypoid mass that was attached to the left pyriform sinus.
  • Histologically, most (70%) of the tumor was composed of malignant spindle cell proliferation, and the rest (30%) was basaloid squamous carcinoma.
  • The preoperative histologic diagnosis was difficult because the endoscopic biopsy specimens showed only spindle cell proliferation.
  • This is an unusual presentation of basaloid squamous carcinoma of the head and neck.

  • [Title] Actinic keratosis treatment as a key component of preventive strategies for nonmelanoma skin cancer.
  • Actinic keratosis, the result of chronic sun damage to the skin, is closely linked to nonmelanoma skin cancer, both histologically and pathophysiologically.
  • Clinical evidence shows that not only does actinic keratosis have the potential to progress and transform into nonmelanoma skin cancer, but it also may in fact be an early stage of cancer.
  • The treatment of actinic keratosis is evolving from a "treat-as-you-go" strategy to a more preventive approach to curtail the potential emergence of nonmelanoma skin cancer.
  • As the interrelationship between actinic keratosis and nonmelanoma skin cancer, squamous cell carcinoma, and basal cell carcinoma continues to strengthen, treating actinic keratosis as part of a preventive strategy to reduce nonmelanoma skin cancer is coming to the forefront.
  • The following review of the relationship between actinic keratosis and nonmelanoma skin cancer discusses the rationale for early actinic keratosis treatment to prevent or reduce nonmelanoma skin cancer occurrence.

  • [Title] The significance of reflectance confocal microscopy in the assessment of solitary pink skin lesions.
  • BACKGROUND: Solitary pink lesions often manifest nondescript clinical and dermatoscopic primary morphologic features.
  • The differential diagnosis for pink lesions tends, therefore, to be broad, ranging from inflammatory processes to malignancy.
  • OBJECTIVE: We sought to demonstrate the use of RCM as an adjunct to the bedside diagnosis of pink lesions.
  • METHODS: We describe a series of patients with clinically and dermatoscopically equivocal pink lesions for which RCM examination allowed for a rapid and accurate diagnosis.
  • RESULTS: Lesions included basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, amelanotic melanoma, and inflamed seborrheic keratosis.
  • In the cases presented RCM allowed for a rapid and accurate noninvasive diagnosis.

  • [Title] Ocular metastasis of cutaneous malignant melanoma.
  • Patients at greatest risk often have disseminated metastases in the setting of advanced disease.
  • Because the prognosis for orbital metastatic disease is poor, emphasis must be placed on early detection and prevention.
  • Although cutaneous malignancies include basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, sebaceous cell carcinoma, and malignant melanoma, the majority of cases that result in metastasis, ocular morbidity, and mortality are from sebaceous cell carcinoma and malignant melanoma.
  • Her systemic medical history was significant for the diagnosis of a cutaneous malignant melanoma.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging confirmed the diagnosis of metastatic lesions involving structures of the left orbit ultimately causing reduced visual ability.
  • Although orbital metastasis is considered a terminal finding in these cases, timely diagnosis enables, while limited, the best options for management.

  • [Title] Impact of radiographic findings on prognosis for skin carcinoma with clinical perineural invasion.
  • BACKGROUND: The objective of the current study was to correlate pretreatment computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging studies with outcomes for patients with squamous or basal cell carcinoma of the skin and clinical perineural invasion.
  • Patients were stratified as follows: imaging negative, 10 patients; minimal or moderate peripheral disease, 14 patients; and central and/or macroscopic disease, 21 patients.
  • RESULTS: The 5-year local control rates were as follows: imaging negative, 76%; minimal or moderate peripheral disease, 57%; and central and/or macroscopic disease, 25%.
  • The 5-year absolute and cause-specific survival rates were as follows: imaging negative, 90% and 100%, respectively; minimal or moderate peripheral disease, 50% and 56%, respectively; and central and/or macroscopic disease, 58% and 61%, respectively.
  • Patients who had imaging-positive minimal or moderate peripheral disease had a better local control rate but a similar survival rate compared with patients who had central and/or macroscopic disease.

  • [Title] Metastatic basal cell carcinoma with squamous differentiation: report of a case with response of cutaneous metastases to electrochemotherapy.
  • BACKGROUND: Metastatic basal cell carcinoma is a rare disease with poor prognosis.
  • Electrochemotherapy is a recently described therapy that relies on the permeation of cancer cell membranes by electrical pulses to enhance cytotoxic drug penetration.
  • It has been successfully used in the treatment of primary and metastatic skin cancers.
  • We report a case of metastatic basal cell carcinoma in which electrochemotherapy was effective in inducing local regression of skin metastases.
  • OBSERVATIONS: A 75-year-old man presented with a pigmented, deeply infiltrating nodule in the right axilla manifesting as basal cell carcinoma with squamous differentiation at histopathologic examination.
  • Three successive sessions of electrochemotherapy with bleomycin sulfate were then performed on isolated skin metastases.
  • Conclusion Electrochemotherapy is an effective and well-tolerated adjunct to the therapeutic options in metastatic basal cell carcinoma, characterized by an advantageous risk-benefit ratio and minimal downtime.

  • [Title] Genus beta human papillomaviruses and incidence of basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas of skin: population based case-control study.
  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the association between genus beta human papillomaviruses and the incidence of non-melanocytic skin cancer in the general population.
  • PARTICIPANTS: 2366 skin cancer cases and controls from the general population aged 25 to 74 years (663 squamous cell carcinoma, 898 basal cell carcinoma, 805 controls), with plasma samples tested for L1 antibodies to 16 genus beta human papillomaviruses by multiplex serology.
  • MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Odds ratios for squamous cell carcinoma and basal cell carcinoma associated with seropositivity to beta human papillomaviruses.
  • RESULTS: Squamous cell carcinoma, but not basal cell carcinoma, cases had a higher prevalence of each of the individual beta human papillomaviruses assayed compared with controls.
  • The odds ratios for squamous cell carcinoma increased with the number of beta types positive (odds ratio for one type positive 0.99 (95% confidence interval 0.74 to 1.33); two to three types positive 1.44 (1.03 to 2.01); four to eight types positive 1.51 (1.03 to 2.20); more than eight types positive 1.71 (1.12 to 2.62); P for trend (categorical)<0.001; P for trend (continuous)=0.003).
  • CONCLUSIONS: These findings support a relation between genus beta human papillomavirus infection and the incidence of squamous cell carcinoma of the skin in the general population, as well as potential enhancement of risk by immunosuppression.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The clinical aspect of tumors of the eyelids is polymorphous; however, the most frequent are benign tumors such as papillomas, basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, meibomian gland carcinoma, and melanomas.
  • An important step in the management of the malignant types is to try to establish clear margins through histopathologic techniques: the Mohs technique, the rapid fixation technique, and the frozen section method are the most frequent technical tools used today.
  • For the most malignant tumors such as malignant melanoma and Merkel cell tumor, lymph sentinel biopsy is a recent, valuable tool, but its benefit needs to be confirmed in large series.

  • [Title] Initial Mohs surgery followed by planned surgical resection of massive cutaneous carcinomas of the head and neck.
  • OBJECTIVE: To review our experience with Mohs excision of massive cutaneous carcinomas for peripheral margin control, followed by planned definitive resection of the deeply invasive component of the carcinoma.
  • METHODS: All cases of massive (at least 10 cm in dimension) cutaneous carcinomas treated by the technique outlined by Yadranko Ducic from 1998-2006.
  • RESULTS: A total of 28 cases (7 squamous cell carcinomas, 14 basal cell carcinomas, 7 basosquamous carcinomas) were treated in this manner.
  • Average maximal tumor dimension was 12.7 cm with a range of 10-21 cm.
  • There were a total of 7 local recurrences (5 squamous cell carcinoma and 2 basal cell carcinoma).
  • CONCLUSIONS: The technique appears to be an excellent means of treatment of massive, neglected, and deeply invasive cutaneous carcinomas of the face and neck.

  • Xeroderma pigmentosum (XP) is a genetic disorder characterised by hypo-/hyperpigmentation, increased sensitivity to ultraviolet (UV)-radiation and an up to 2000-fold increased skin cancer risk.
  • This defect accounts for their mutator phenotype but does not predict their increased skin cancer risk.
  • Therefore, we carried out array analysis to measure the expression of more than 1000 genes after UVB-irradiation in XP cells from three complementation groups with different clinical severity (XP-A, XP-D, XP-F) as well as from patients with normal DNA repair but increased skin cancer risk (≥2 basal or squamous cell carcinoma at age <40yrs).
  • Genes identified in XP cells could be confirmed in cells from patients with no known DNA repair defects but increased skin cancer risk.

  • BACKGROUND: Basosquamous carcinoma (BSC) is a rare malignancy with specific histopathological features of both basal cell (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC).
  • Therefore, the histological diagnosis is challenging.
  • In the case of the carcinoma on the forehead, a local excision was performed.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The histological diagnosis of BSC is confirmed by the use of EMA and BerEP4 immunohistological staining.
  • Clinically, BSC is a rare, aggressive skin tumor.
  • Despite the histological similarity to basal cell carcinoma, BSC has an imminent risk of metastasizing.

  • Perineural spread (PNS) refers to the extent of tumor cells or other nonneoplastic lesions along the tissues of the nerve sheath, its overall incidence ranges from 2.5% to 5%.
  • PNS is more frequently associated with carcinoma arising from minor or major salivary glands (more often adenoid cystic carcinoma), mucosal or cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma, basal cell carcinoma, melanoma, lymphoma, and sarcoma.
  • Therefore, radiologists must be aware of the relevant cranial nerve anatomy and thoroughly scrutinize not only the nerves close to the primary tumor site but also the whole neural pathways that can be accessed by PNS.
  • Equally critical is knowledge of the radiologic appearance of perineural tumor extension and the best imaging strategies to detect PNS.

  • [Title] Bcl-XL protein is markedly decreased in UVB-irradiated basal cell carcinoma cell lines through proteasome-mediated degradation.
  • There is considerable evidence that the excessive ultraviolet radiation B (UVB) from sunlight is implicated in skin damage, ultimately inducing the death of keratinocytes.
  • If the apoptotic pathway does not work properly, the damaged cells have a chance to transform into a carcinoma, such as basal cell carcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma of the skin.
  • To develop a strategy of inducing apoptosis of skin cancer cells, the current study was performed to investigate the apoptotic pathway, especially focused on Bcl2 family proteins, in curcumin or UVB-treated basal cell carcinoma cell lines.
  • Our data demonstrated that the expression of Bcl-XL protein was decreased by proteasome-mediated degradation prior to change of mRNA level in UVB-induced apoptotic basal cell carcinoma cell lines, thereby these results will offer fundamental information to develop a strategy of inducing apoptosis of skin cancer cells.

  • [Title] Geographic variation and risk of skin cancer in US women. Differences between melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and basal cell carcinoma.
  • BACKGROUND: Occurrences of melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), and basal cell carcinoma (BCC) have been associated with varying geography.
  • Our goal was to evaluate differences in risk of these skin cancers according to residence at varying UV indices at 3 time points.
  • The outcome measure was diagnosis of melanoma, SCC, or BCC.
  • RESULTS: During the 18-year study, 420 cases of melanoma, 863 cases of SCC, and 8215 cases of BCC occurred.
  • Although elevated, the age-adjusted risk of BCC at 30 years of age associated with residence in these states was substantially less.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The risk of SCC is independently affected by residence in locations with medium and high UV indices; the gradient of risk is weaker for BCC; and the risk of melanoma does not change significantly across this gradient.

  • [Title] Genetic tumor archeology: microdissection and genetic heterogeneity in squamous and basal cell carcinoma.
  • Skin cancer provides an advantageous model for studying the development of cancer.
  • Detectable lesions occur early during tumor progression, facilitating molecular analysis of the cell populations from both preneoplastic and neoplastic lesions.
  • Alterations of the p53 tumor suppressor gene are very common in non-melanoma skin cancer, and dysregulation of p53 pathways appear to be an early event in the tumor development.
  • A high frequency of epidermal p53 clones has been detected in chronically sun-exposed skin.
  • The abundance of clones containing p53 mutated keratinocytes adjacent to basal cell (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) suggests a role in human skin carcinogenesis.
  • Microdissection-based studies have also shown that different parts of individual BCC tumors can share a common p53 mutation yet differ with respect to additional alterations within the p53 gene, consistent with subclonal development within tumors.
  • Here, we present examples of using well-defined cell populations, including single cells, from complex tissue in combination with molecular tools to reveal features involved in skin carcinogenesis.

  • [Title] Indoor ultraviolet tanning and skin cancer: health risks and opportunities.
  • PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Skin cancer incidence is higher than that of any other human malignancy, and yet one of its root causes [ultraviolet (UV) radiation] is perhaps better understood than any other human carcinogen.
  • The roles of UV radiation exposure and indoor tanning behaviors on skin cancer risk are explored here.
  • RECENT FINDINGS: Studies from the past several years have shown a significant association between ever-use of an indoor tanning facility and an increased risk of basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma.
  • The association between indoor tanning and skin cancer is particularly strong among those who first used a tanning facility in early adulthood.
  • Elevated vitamin D levels have been suggested to protect against various internal malignancies and other disease states, but sources of vitamin D that do not require UV exposure are easily available.
  • SUMMARY: Although additional research is needed to understand fully the relationship between UV and skin cancer, it is already clear that indoor tanning bed use represents an avoidable risk factor for melanoma and nonmelanoma skin cancer - both of which may be lethal.

  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: The NEI-VFQ + was presented to a group of 73 patients (average age 71 years) after surgical treatment of malignant palpebral tumours (basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, melanoma).
  • CONCLUSIONS: The overall success of a particular surgical intervention to treat a malignant palpebral tumour depends not only on the expected minimisation of future health problems, including decreased visual function, but appears to depend strongly on the personal expectations of individual patients with respect to the aesthetic outcome.
  • Therefore in the case of a malignant palpebral tumour, it should be envisaged to plan a treatment strategy not only on the basis of the objective needs and limitations as seen by the surgeon, but also involving the patient's concern with all his/her expectations and fears in order to build up more mutual trust and to get a result that is satisfactory for the surgeon as well as for the patient.

  • [Title] Nonsurgical innovations in the treatment of nonmelanoma skin cancer.
  • Basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma are the most frequent types of cancer in the United States and represent 75 percent and 20 percent, respectively, of all nonmelanoma skin cancers.
  • Additional preventive measures include identifying high-risk individuals for early detection along with using agents, such as retinoids, that are effective in decreasing the risk of premalignant cells further developing into carcinomas.
  • Procedural modalities are currently the standard of treatment, but recent evidence has consistently shown that newer (nonsurgical) therapies, such as interferon, imiquimod, retinoids, and 5-fluorouracil, can be used effectively either as monotherapies or as adjuvants to those surgical modalities for the treatment of superficial nonmelanoma skin cancers and premalignant lesions.
  • Procedural modalities that have been evolving into important tools for the treatment of actinic keratosis and nonmelanoma skin cancers include photodynamic therapy and lasers.

  • Human skin has developed elaborate defense mechanisms for combating a wide variety of potentially damaging environmental factors; principal among these is UV light.
  • Despite these defenses, short-term damage may include painful sunburn and long-term UV damage results in both accelerated skin aging and skin cancers such as basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and even malignant melanoma.
  • The following sections briefly review UV-inducible protective responses in bacteria and in skin, thymidine dinucleotides (pTT) as a powerful probe of DNA damage responses, and potential means of harnessing these inducible responses therapeutically to reduce the now enormous burden of cutaneous photodamage in our society.

  • [Title] Spindle basaloid squamous carcinoma of the upper aerodigestive tract: immunohistochemical and clinicopathological study of three cases.
  • We describe the clinicopathological and immunohistochemical features of three spindle (sarcomatoid) basaloid squamous carcinomas in three men aged 73, 69, and 59 years with a history of tobacco and alcohol abuse.
  • Histologically, they were composed of conventional basaloid squamous carcinomas with extensive malignant spindle cell proliferation, comprising more than 50% of the tumor.
  • One case in addition expressed CD99 and Bcl-2 and was originally diagnosed as monophasic synovial sarcoma; however, a subsequent biopsy disclosed basaloid squamous cell carcinoma with sarcomatoid stroma.
  • The patients were alive 14 (case patient 1), 10 (case patient 2), and 8 (case patient 3) months after diagnosis.
  • In the absence of evidence from immunohistochemical or electron microscopy studies, a polypoid malignant spindle cell tumor of a mucosal surface of the upper aerodigestive tract should be considered a sarcomatoid carcinoma until proven otherwise.
  • The type of epithelial component would determine the subtype of sarcomatoid carcinoma.

  • [Title] Polymorphisms of 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase and thymidylate synthase in squamous cell carcinoma and basal cell carcinoma of the skin.
  • Genetic instability resulting from mutations in repair genes, defects in folic acid metabolism or DNA synthesis has been reported to contribute significantly to the development of skin cancer.
  • Thus, the present case-control study was conducted to determine whether an association exists between the MTHFR/TS polymorphisms and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and/or basal cell carcinoma (BCC) among Korean individuals.
  • The study subjects comprised 95 patients with SCC, 100 patients with BCC and 207 controls with no evidence of malignancy or pre-malignant lesions.
  • Patients with skin cancer and control samples were analyzed for polymorphisms of the MTHFR or TS genes by means of polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism.
  • The MTHFR 677C>T and MTHFR 1298A>C polymorphisms showed no significance with regard to the development of SCC and BCC.
  • However, within the 6 bp insertion (ins)/deletion (del) polymorphism in the 3'-untranslated region (3'-UTR) of the TS gene, the BCC group showed statistical significance with a 2.8-fold increased risk of cancer development [adjusted odds ratio (AOR)=2.821] in heterozygous mutations (0 bp/6 bp), 7.5-fold (AOR=7.539) in homozygous mutations (6 bp/6 bp) and 3-fold (AOR=3.079) upon combination of heterozygous mutations and homozygous mutations (0 bp/6 bp + 6 bp/6 bp).
  • We thus conclude that the 6 bp ins/del polymorphism in the 3'-UTR is associated with increased risk of the development of skin cancer among Korean individuals with BCC.

  • [Title] XPA, haplotypes, and risk of basal and squamous cell carcinoma.
  • Nucleotide excision repair (NER) is instrumental in removing DNA lesions caused by ultraviolet (UV) radiation, the dominant risk factor for keratinocyte carcinoma, including basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC).
  • We evaluated whether BCC or SCC risk was influenced by the A23G single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in Xeroderma pigmentosum group A (XPA), which codes for an essential protein in NER.
  • We also investigated whether haplotypes of XPA, determined by seven haplotype-tagging SNPs, better define susceptibility to keratinocyte carcinoma.
  • Incident cases of BCC and SCC from New Hampshire were identified through dermatologists and pathology laboratories.
  • Cases of BCC (886) and of SCC (682) were compared with controls (796).
  • Using GG as the reference, the A allele was less frequent among cases of BCC (OR(AG) = 0.82, 95% CI (0.66, 1.01); OR(AA)= 0.74, 95% CI (0.53, 1.03); trend test P = 0.03) and SCC (OR(AG) = 0.85, 95% CI (0.67, 1.07); OR(AA) = 0.74, 95% CI (0.52, 1.05); trend test P = 0.05) than controls.
  • Risk from > or =3 severe sunburns was elevated for those with the GG genotype only, and this interaction was nearly significant for BCC (P = 0.07).
  • Using a haplotype analysis identifying seven common XPA haplotypes indicated that the A23G polymorphism alone captured the differences in susceptibility to keratinocyte carcinoma.
  • The common G allele of the A23G polymorphism was associated with an increased risk of BCC and SCC and this polymorphism appeared to be the determining polymorphism in XPA that alters cancer susceptibility.

  • [Title] Periocular metatypical cell carcinoma: clinicopathologic correlation, management, and follow-up in 35 patients.
  • BACKGROUND: To present the clinical characteristics and treatment outcomes in a relatively large series of patients with periocular metatypical cell carcinoma.
  • METHODS: This is a retrospective study of 35 patients with periocular metatypical cell carcinoma, who were seen between January 2000 and December 2004 in Izmir Ataturk Research and Training Hospital, Turkey.
  • The patients were histologically confirmed metatypical cell carcinoma with radiologic evidence of periocular region.
  • RESULTS: The median age of patients at time of diagnosis was 61 years.
  • The most common site for metatypical cell carcinoma was medial canthus and lower eyelid region.
  • The early lack of diagnostic criteria for metatypical cell carcinoma created considerable debate and confusion regarding its diagnosis.
  • We believe that once this diagnosis is made, the treatment modality should be individualized and chosen with consideration of the extent of orbital involvement, visual function, and the patient's general health.

  • BACKGROUND: Skin cancer (SC) is the most frequent malignancy after renal transplantation (RT), especially squamous and basal cell carcinoma.
  • The observation that angiotensin II is a potent angiogenic and growth factor raises the possibility that blocking its effects could reduce the incidence of skin cancer.
  • OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the incidence of keratinocyte cancer in RT recipients, the timing of occurrence of the skin events after RT; to compare the incidence of SC in our RT recipients and in RT patients on angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEi), angiotensin receptor blockers therapy (ARBs) and their combination.
  • BCC was the most frequent type of keratinocyte cancer in non users and in users.
  • No association with incidence of BCC or SCC was observed for other classes of antihypertensive drugs (calcium antagonists, beta-blockers, alpha-blockers).

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Human papillomaviruses infect the squamous epithelia of the skin and cause warts, and are occasionally found in squamous cell carcinomas.
  • Since cell-mediated immunity plays a crucial role in the control of HPV-infections, organ transplant recipients, unable to mount an adequate T-helper 1 cell-mediated immune surveillance, frequently develop widespread and resistant induced warts.
  • Skin tumors, especially squamous cell carcinomas, are the most common post-transplantation neoplasm.
  • Warts, actinic keratoses and invasive squamous cell carcinomas are known to develop at the same time in the areas.
  • The role of HPV in the development of invasive squamous cell carcinoma under immunosuppression, remains to be elucidated in respect to common risk factors and increased numbers of warts potentially identifying patients at increased risk for carcinoma.
  • We prospectively studied 1690 organ transplant recipients in the dermatology clinic at the Charité University Hospital in Berlin, to evaluate risk factors being involved in the development of HPV-induced warts and to assess a potential association of with the development of non-melanoma skin cancers in this population.
  • The presence of more than 10 verrucae was associated with the development of actinic keratoses, invasive squamous cell carcinoma and basal cell carcinoma.
  • This study shows clear evidence that certain risk factors of skin carcinogenesis in organ transplant recipient such as increased age at transplantation, a high dose of immunosuppression related to a specific type of graft and use of azathioprine or cyclosporine are strongly associated with an increased incidence of warts.
  • Furthermore, HPV-induced verrucae vulgares could be used as a potential predictor for the development of coincidental non melanoma skin cancer in organ transplant recipients and therefore could serve as an early identification marker of skin cancer high-risk patients.

  • [Title] MEL4B3, a novel mRNA is induced in skin tumors and regulated by TGF-beta and pro-inflammatory cytokines.
  • Tumor-stroma interactions play a decisive role in the growth and metastasis of solid tumors, and involve signalling either by soluble mediators or direct cell-cell interaction.
  • Here, we report the isolation and characterisation of a novel cDNA (MEL4B3), which is induced in cultured dermal fibroblasts exposed to supernatants of melanoma cell lines.
  • In situ hybridisation revealed the expression of MEL4B3 in malignant melanoma increasing with tumor depth; in basal cell carcinoma and in squamous cell carcinoma.
  • MEL4B3 was barely detectable in normal skin or non-malignant melanocytic naevi.
  • Furthermore, MEL4B3 was expressed at high level in the epidermis of psoriatic skin.
  • In vitro, the expression of MEL4B3 was found to be induced by the exposure of human dermal fibroblasts to melanoma cell culture supernatants or to transforming growth factor-beta, interleukin-1 and tumor necrosis factor-alpha.
  • The expression MEL4B3 therefore reflects closely cell activation occurring during tumor growth, metastasis and inflammation.

  • [Title] An overview of Bcl-2 expression in histopathological variants of basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, actinic keratosis and seborrheic keratosis.
  • The Bcl-2 protein has been shown to suppress cell death and protects cell against apoptosis induced by different death-inducing signals.
  • In this study the authors have analyzed imunohistochemically the expression of Bcl-2 protein in the histopathological variants of the most common malignant tumors of the skin--basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell tumor (SCC), as well as in the precancerous lesion actinic keratosis (AK) and in benign tumor seborrheic keratosis (SK).
  • Bcl-2 expression in solid, adenoid and cystic variants of BCC exhibited immunoreactivity of tumor stroma with more intense staining among peripheral palisading cells.
  • Among SCC in all samples, tumor tissue lack to express Bcl-2 positivity.
  • In cases of hypertrophic and atrophic variants of AK, Bcl-2 expression was confined to basal cell layer, as well as in one case of hypertrophic variant in suprabasal cells.
  • In three histological variants of SK expresseion of Bcl-2 protein was in areas of basaloid proliferation, while in areas of squamous differentiation was negative.
  • In clonal variant immunostaining was positive among cells in characteristic "nests" Distribution of Bcl-2 protein expression in solid, adenoid and cystic variant of BCC showed that peripheral proliferating cells are protected against apoptosis what permits tumor growth.
  • In morpheaform variant reduced amount of Bcl-2 expression indicated that this variant of BCC has increased cell proliferation, and in practice shows tendency for recurrence and difficulties to eradicate.
  • Bcl-2 expression supports the observation that tumor cells are derived from basal keratinocytes.
  • In SCC, lack of Bcl-2 expression indicates that origin of tumor cells is from more differentiated suprabasal keratinocytes.

  • BACKGROUND: Presenting signs/symptoms of skin cancer may aid in earlier detection and diagnosis.
  • OBJECTIVE: We sought to compare prospectively collected, presenting signs/symptoms of malignant melanoma (MM), basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), and seborrheic keratosis (SK).
  • METHODS: This analysis was part of a larger study on teledermatology involving 3039 skin neoplasms in 2152 patients at a Department of Veterans Affairs medical center.
  • At presentation, participants were asked about signs/symptoms of specific skin lesions.
  • In all, 912 biopsy-proven MM (39), BCC (411), SCC (238), and SK (224) were included in this analysis.
  • RESULTS: "No symptoms" was reported more often with MM (82%) as compared with BCC (relative risk [RR] 2.26, confidence interval [CI] 1.86, 2.75), SCC (RR 3.31, CI 2.54, 4.32), or SK (RR 2.0, CI 1.61, 2.48; all P < .0001).
  • Tenderness was more commonly reported with SCC (40%) as compared with MM (RR 15.9, CI 2.28, 110.69), SK (RR 3.0, CI 2.11, 4.39), or BCC (RR 2.6, CI 1.97, 3.38; all P < .0001).
  • Bleeding was more commonly reported with BCC (37%) as compared with SK (RR 2.3, CI 1.67, 3.20), SCC (RR 1.6, CI 1.22, 2.05), or MM (RR 29.8, CI 1.89, 469.65; all P <or= .007).

  • [Title] Caveats in BerEP4 staining to differentiate basal and squamous cell carcinoma.
  • BACKGROUND: Superficial skin biopsies of basal cell carcinoma (BCC) represent some of the most common dermatopathology specimens.
  • Superficial shave biopsies containing partial samples of lesions with squamatization present difficulties in distinguishing BCC from squamous cell carcinoma (SCC).
  • METHODS: We collected 12 cases of superficial biopsies of BCC with centrally located cords and strands suggesting squamous differentiation at the Yale Dermatopathology Laboratory over a 3-month period and stained them with BerEP4.
  • CONCLUSIONS: BerEP4 labeling is not reliable in superficial biopsies of BCC with squamoid features.
  • It is important to be aware of this caveat in interpreting BerEP4 staining for BCC and SCC.

  • [Title] Predisposing factors and outcomes of malignant skin tumors in children.
  • BACKGROUND: Although benign and metastatic tumors occur in children, primary malignant skin tumors are uncommon in the pediatric population.
  • In this study, the authors aimed to determine the incidence, risk factors, treatment, reconstruction details, and outcome of malignant skin tumors occurring in pediatric patients at the Hospital for Sick Children.
  • METHODS: The electronic database (CoPath) of the pathology department was searched for all cases of malignant skin tumors treated surgically between January of 2000 and September of 2008.
  • RESULTS: Eighteen patients had been diagnosed and treated surgically for malignant skin tumors.
  • Diagnosis of malignant melanoma was made in 14 patients, diagnosis of basal cell carcinoma was made in four patients, and diagnosis of squamous cell carcinoma was made in one patient.
  • Gorlin syndrome was an underlying predisposing condition in three patients with basal cell carcinoma.
  • All cases of basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma underwent surgical resection and primary closure or skin graft.
  • Of the patients with malignant melanoma, seven underwent surgical excision and primary closure and five had excision and skin graft.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Malignant skin tumors are rare in children.
  • In accordance with previously published data, malignant melanoma was the most frequent tumor in our study.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Metastatic basal cell carcinoma: report of two cases and literature review.
  • BACKGROUND: Metastatic basal cell carcinoma (MBCC) is defined as primary cutaneous basal cell carcinoma (BCC) that spreads to distant sites as histologically similar metastatic deposits of BCC.
  • METHODS: This article examines two cases of MBCC and provides a literature review of risk factors inherent in epidemiology, patient demographics, and the clinicohistopathological characteristics of primary and metastatic BCC lesions.
  • RESULTS: MBCC is a rare complication of BCC with high morbidity and mortality rates.
  • Patients with MBCC often begin with long-standing primary BCC lesions that are either large or recurrent after treatment.
  • Cases of MBCC have a higher incidence of the more aggressive histologic patterns (morpheic, infiltrating, metatypical, and basosquamous).
  • Perineural space invasion may be an indicator of aggressive disease.
  • Metastases often involve regional lymph nodes, lungs, bone, and skin.
  • CONCLUSION: These case reports and review provide important diagnostic and management considerations for primary BCC and MBCC.

  • The cdk-inhibitor p16 is a tumor suppressor gene that is inactivated in many forms of cancer.
  • Here, by subcellular fractionation of Rb-functional and Rb-inactivated cell lines, we show that p16 indeed is expressed in the cytoplasm as well as in the nucleus.
  • Samples of basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma of the skin with either functional or non-functional Rb also exhibited at least two forms of p16.

  • [Title] Polymorphisms in nucleotide excision repair genes, arsenic exposure, and non-melanoma skin cancer in New Hampshire.
  • UV damage is specifically repaired by nucleotide excision repair (NER), and common genetic variants in NER may increase risk for non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC).
  • METHODS: Incident cases of basal and squamous cell carcinoma (BCC and SCC, respectively) were identified through a network of dermatologists and pathology laboratories across New Hampshire.
  • The analysis included 880 cases of BCC, 666 cases of SCC, and 780 controls.
  • RESULTS: There was an increased BCC risk associated with high arsenic exposure among those homozygous variant for XPA [odds ratio (OR) = 1.8; 95% confidence interval (CI), 0.9-3.7].
  • For XPD, having variation at both loci (312Asn and 751Gln) occurred less frequently among BCC and SCC cases compared with controls (OR = 0.8; 95% CI, 0.6-1.0) for both case groups.

  • Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is an extremely common malignancy; however, unlike other skin cancers, they very rarely metastasize.
  • Here we present an unusual case of metatypical BCC of the eyelid which metastasized to the lung nine years after initial surgical treatment.
  • We include a review of the literature regarding metastatic BCC and suggest that metatypical features in primary BCC should prompt careful patient monitoring and consideration of adjuvant treatment at the time of diagnosis.

  • [Title] Aggressive basal cell carcinoma with invasion of the parotid gland, facial nerve, and temporal bone.
  • Aggressive variants of basal cell carcinoma (BCC), such as infiltrating, morpheaform, and basosquamous types, are associated with invasion of underlying tissues and are often difficult to treat.1 BCCs located in embryonic fusion planes, such as the periauricular region, are thought to exhibit deep extension and, subsequently, high recurrence rates, although this theory has been challenged and remains controversial.2-4 Despite the known features of aggressive BCC, parotid gland invasion and temporal bone and facial nerve involvement are rarely reported occurrences.
  • We describe two patients with morpheaform BCC in the periauricular region demonstrating direct invasion of the parotid gland and concomitant facial nerve involvement.

  • In this sense, several studies are being conducted for the measurement of cutaneous tumor sizes and for the evaluation of their response to therapeutic procedures.
  • The present work was conducted to analyze the ability of UBM to identify diverse histological structures associated with cutaneous carcinomas ex vivo regarding the evaluation of the technique as a diagnostic tool that could, eventually, improve the patient's healthcare protocol.
  • METHODS: Ex vivo human tissue samples, corresponding to basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma cases, were studied.
  • RESULTS: The histological components present in the tumors were identified by variations in the echogenicity level for several of the studied cases and particular characteristics were observed for the different tumor types.
  • CONCLUSION: The possibility of differentiating the histological components associated with cutaneous carcinomas indicates the potential use of UBM for diagnostic applications.

  • [Title] Radiotherapy of skin carcinomas of the pinna: a study of 115 lesions in 108 patients.
  • BACKGROUND: The possibility of treating skin carcinomas of the pinna with radiotherapy is somewhat under discussion and scarcely known.
  • Therefore the aim of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of dermatologic radiotherapy in a series of patients affected by basal or squamous cell carcinoma of the pinna.
  • METHODS: A retrospective study was performed on 108 patients affected by 115 carcinomas of the pinna (99 basal cell carcinomas, 16 squamous cell carcinomas) without involvement of the external auditory canal.
  • During follow up a relapse was observed in 12 lesions (all basal cell carcinomas): nine central and three marginal to the irradiation field.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The results obtained confirm the possibility of treating epithelial skin neoplasms of the pinna with dermatologic radiotherapy, which can afford high-remission percentages without damaging cartilaginous tissue.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • METHODS: Illustrated review centered on diagnosis of the usual aspects and pitfalls of eyelid pathology divided into semiological chapters (tumors, blisters, erythema, etc.).
  • It is mainly centered on skin cancers (basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, adnexal carcinomas, and melanoma).
  • A number of rare diseases deserve mention since their presence could lead to the diagnosis of internal or systemic diseases (dermatomyositis, necrobiotic xanthogranuloma, Erdheim-Chester, etc.).
  • In such conditions, early diagnosis is often based on the observation of isolated periocular symptoms.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Even though topographic dermatology is a somewhat reductive vision of skin diseases, pathology of the eyelids deserves special mention because of its polymorphism as well as its diagnostic and/or therapeutic significance.

  • Non-melanoma skin cancers such as squamous cell carcinoma and basal cell carcinoma are the most common types of human neoplasms, representing one third of all new malignancies diagnosed in the US.
  • Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun is a major cause of non-melanoma skin cancer in humans.
  • Aside from the mutagenic effects of UV radiation, there are suggestions from clinical studies and evidence in animal models that the immune system plays an important role in preventing skin cancer development and progression, and is suppressed by cutaneous exposure to UV radiation.
  • In this article, we review the research on new and existing agents that are being developed to protect the skin immune response from suppression by UV radiation.

  • Mohs micrographic surgery is often considered the treatment of choice for a variety of skin malignancies.
  • In recent years, the application of immunostaining techniques has facilitated the successful removal of a number of common and less common cutaneous malignancies, including basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, malignant melanoma, dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, microcystic adnexal carcinoma, sebaceous carcinoma, atypical fibroxanthoma, extramammary Paget's disease, and even sarcomas.
  • Immunostains highlight the tumor cells and allow the Mohs surgeons to pinpoint and eliminate the residual tumor at the surgical margin.
  • It is especially helpful when a tumor presents with subtle or nonspecific histologic features or when a tumor is masked in a pocket of dense inflammation.

  • [Title] Chemokine receptor expression in non-melanoma skin cancer.
  • Prior studies have shown that in metastatic melanoma and squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck upregulation of CXC (alpha) chemokine receptor (CXCR)4 and CC (beta) chemokine receptor (CCR)7 expression is accompanied by downregulation of the chemokine receptor CCR6.
  • However, the expression patterns of CCR6, CCR7 and CXCR4 in non-melanoma skin cancer have yet to be elucidated.
  • METHODS: The expression patterns of CCR6, CCR7 and CXCR4 were determined using an immunohistochemical approach on formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded normal, pre-cancerous actinic (solar) keratosis, squamous cell carcinoma and basal cell carcinoma tissues.
  • RESULTS: Analysis of chemokine receptor expression showed downregulation of CCR6 and upregulation of CCR7 and CXCR4 in potentially metastatic non-melanoma skin cancer, invasive squamous cell carcinoma, but this pattern did not exist in non-melanoma skin cancer with no metastatic potential, basal cell carcinoma; or actinic keratosis, when compared with normal skin.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Chemokine receptor expression may influence the biological behavior of non-melanoma skin cancer.

  • This paper reviews the role of mast cells in the development and progression of basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and malignant melanoma.
  • Upon irradiation of the skin, trans-urocanic acid in the epidermis isomerizes to cis-urocanic acid, which stimulates neuropeptide release from neural c-fibers.
  • These neuropeptides in turn trigger histamine secretion from mast cells, leading to suppression of the cellular immune system. (2) Angiogenesis: Mast cells are the major source of vascular endothelial growth factor in basal cell carcinoma and malignant melanoma.
  • Vascular endothelial growth factor is one of the most potent angiogenic factors, which also induces leakage of other angiogenic factors across the endothelial cell wall into the matrix.
  • Mast cell proteases reorganize the stroma to facilitate endothelial cell migration.
  • As well, heparin, the dominant mast cell proteoglycan, assists in blood-borne metastasis. (3) Degradation of extracellular matrix: Through its own proteases, and indirectly via interaction with other cells, mast cells participate in degradation of the matrix, which is required for tumor spread. (4) Mitogenesis: Mast cell mediators including fibroblast growth factor-2 and interleukin-8 are mitogenic to melanoma cells.
  • Emerging data, however, also suggest that mast cells might, in fact, have opposing roles in tumor biology, and the microenvironment could polarize mast cells to possess either promoting or inhibitory effects on tumors.
