  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Soluble mesothelin in effusions: a useful tool for the diagnosis of malignant mesothelioma.
  • BACKGROUND: The diagnosis of malignant mesothelioma is frequently difficult, the most common differential diagnosis being reactive pleural conditions and metastatic adenocarcinoma.
  • Soluble mesothelin levels in serum have recently been shown to be highly specific and moderately sensitive for mesothelioma.
  • As most patients with mesothelioma present with exudative effusions of either the pleura or the peritoneum, a study was undertaken to determine if levels of mesothelin were raised in these fluids and if the increased levels could help to distinguish mesothelioma from other causes of exudative effusion.
  • METHODS: Pleural fluid was collected from 192 patients who presented to respiratory clinics (52 with malignant mesothelioma, 56 with non-mesotheliomatous malignancies and 84 with effusions of non-neoplastic origin).
  • Peritoneal fluid was collected from 42 patients (7 with mesothelioma, 14 with non-mesotheliomatous malignancies and 21 with benign effusions).
  • RESULTS: Significantly higher levels of mesothelin were found in effusions of patients with mesothelioma; with a specificity of 98%, the assay had a sensitivity of 67% comparing patients with mesothelioma and those with effusions of non-neoplastic origin.
  • In 7 out of 10 cases mesothelin levels were raised in the effusion collected 3 weeks to 10 months before the diagnosis of mesothelioma was made; in 4 out of 8 of these, mesothelin levels were increased in the effusion but not in the serum.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Measurement of mesothelin concentrations in the pleural and/or peritoneal effusion of patients may aid in the differential diagnosis of mesothelioma in patients presenting with effusions.

  • [Title] Unusual histological findings after partial pancreaticoduodenectomy including benign multicystic mesothelioma, adenomyoma of the ampulla of Vater, and undifferentiated carcinoma, sarcomatoid variant: a case series.
  • Pathology revealed a benign multicystic mesothelioma.
  • Benign multicystic mesothelioma is a very rare tumor that originates from the peritoneum.
  • Although it demonstrates a benign clinical behaviour, it frequently recurs after resection.
  • Adenomyoma of the bile duct or ampullary region is a very unusual, benign, localized lesion characterized by adenomyomatous hyperplasia.
  • Undifferentiated carcinoma, sarcomatoid variant, is an aggressive tumor and is characterized by spindle cells.
  • The histologic diagnosis after partial pancreaticoduodenectomy may differ from the preoperative and intraoperative findings.
  • These cases demonstrate that a definitive diagnosis may only be obtained by a pathologic examination of the surgical specimen.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Mesothelioma: the aetiological role of ultrathin fibres and repercussions on prevention and medical legal evaluation].
  • BACKGROUND: Mesothelioma has until now been considered to be a manifestation, occurring in the pleura and/or peritoneum, of the carcinogenic action of the total burden of inhaled asbestos fibres, in the same way as lung cancer.
  • Because of the pathogenic potential of very low exposure levels, the fact that the onset of the neoplasm always occurs in the parietal pleura, and the absence of any synergism with smoking, which is typical in the case of carcinoma, it was suspected that aetiopathogenetic differences existed but the reasons for such differences still could not be explained.
  • In the past experimental results indicated the oncogenicity of very thin fibres but mesothelioma in practice was not exclusively linked to this specific dimensional size class.
  • OBJECTIVES: The paper proposes to take full advantage of the significant knowledge that must emerged from research carried out in recent years and use this knowledge to reconstruct the mosaic of the aetiopathogenesis of mesothelioma.
  • RESULTS: The most important knowledge that must today be taken as certain is the fact that mesothelioma is not caused, as is the case for asbestosis, by all the fibres that are inhaled but only by the ultrathin fraction of these fibres, having diameter of 0.2 microm and length of only a few microm.
  • Only fibres of this class of size can cross the pulmonary-pleural barrier and are, therefore, the causal agent of mesothelioma and other benign pleural manifestations (plaques).
  • Due to their shape, the fibres cannot easily be absorbed into the stoma via the lymphatic flow and so remain clustered for an indefinite period of time among the mesothelial cells that surround the stoma.
  • The concentration of ultrathin fibres in punctiform areas of the parietal pleura and the extremely long biopersistence of the amphiboles now finally explain how very low exposures can cause mesothelioma in susceptible subjects and why the neoplasm always occurs on the parietal pleura.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In medical-legal assessments of cases of mesothelioma the etiological importance of the ultrathin fraction of fibres means that any assumption of the disease being avoidable must be discarded, at least up to the second half of the 1980s because until then this class of fibres, which today must be considered as the true causal agent of the neoplasm, was not visible under the optical microscope, nor could such fibres be measured or eliminated from the atmosphere of working environments.

13. Cabay RJ, Siddiqui NH, Alam S: Paratesticular papillary mesothelioma: a case with borderline features. Arch Pathol Lab Med; 2006 Jan;130(1):90-2
COS Scholar Universe. author profiles.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Paratesticular papillary mesothelioma: a case with borderline features.
  • Most often, mesotheliomas involve the serosal (serous) membranes of the pleura and peritoneum.
  • Sometimes, mesothelial proliferations are identified in other locations.
  • On very rare occasions, a mesothelioma is found within the tunica vaginalis of the paratesticular region.
  • We report a case of papillary mesothelioma of the tunica vaginalis in a 52-year-old man.
  • Although this lesion had papillary structures lined by a single layer of mesothelial cells with predominantly bland nuclear and cytologic features, there was evidence of a minimal presence of mesothelial cells in the underlying stroma.
  • This combination of benign and semimalignant characteristics can make the diagnosis of such a lesion problematic.
  • We think that a diagnosis of "borderline papillary mesothelioma" can be considered for similar mesothelial proliferations to allow for a possible increase in diagnostic accuracy and provide an enhanced informational platform from which patients and clinicians can benefit.

  • [Title] Mesothelial inclusion cysts (so-called benign cystic mesothelioma)--a clinicopathological analysis of six cases.
  • The report presents six cases of mesothelial inclusion cysts (MIC), detected in five females (22-53 years of age) and one male (47 years old).
  • The lesions were unifocal (four cases) and multifocal (two cases), and were located on the surface of the peritoneum in the cul de sac, on the intestines, urinary bladder, uterine adnexa, also involved round ligament within the pelvis and in the inguinal canal (one patient).
  • Additionally, in one female, small cysts, free-floating in the peritoneal cavity were present.
  • Apart from MIC, three patients presented with concomitant diseases: appendicitis (two cases), peritoneal pseudomyxoma or primary ovarian carcinoma.
  • Microscopically, the majority of cysts were lined with a single layer of flattened or cuboid mesothelial cells (CK+, calretinin+).
  • Intramural proliferations and intracystic detached clumps of cells showed both mesothelial cells (without any mitotic activity and signs of atypia) and macrophages (CD68+).

  • [Title] From the archives of the AFIP: primary peritoneal tumors: imaging features with pathologic correlation.
  • Primary peritoneal tumors are uncommon lesions that arise from the mesothelial or submesothelial layers of the peritoneum.
  • Primary malignant mesothelioma, multicystic mesothelioma, primary peritoneal serous carcinoma, leiomyomatosis peritonealis disseminata, and desmoplastic small round cell tumor are the most prominent of these rare lesions.
  • Primary malignant mesothelioma is a highly aggressive malignancy that occurs most commonly in older men and that has a strong association with high levels of asbestos exposure.
  • It manifests most often as diffuse sheetlike or nodular thickening of the peritoneal surfaces, but it may occasionally be a localized mass.
  • Multicystic mesothelioma occurs most frequently in women and has benign or indolent biologic behavior in the majority of patients.
  • It is a multilocular cystic mass that arises from the pelvic peritoneal surfaces.
  • Primary peritoneal serous carcinoma occurs almost exclusively in women.
  • Leiomyomatosis peritonealis disseminata is a rare, benign proliferative process that also occurs exclusively in women and is characterized by multiple smooth muscle nodules throughout the peritoneum.
  • Desmoplastic small round cell tumor is a highly aggressive malignancy of unknown origin that occurs most often in the peritoneal cavity of young men.
  • This unusual group of tumors is linked together by a common site of origin and imaging manifestations that mimic those of peritoneal carcinomatosis.
  • Knowledge of the spectrum of imaging findings in this group of primary peritoneal tumors, along with their clinical and pathologic characteristics, is important in the evaluation of patients with diffuse peritoneal disease.

  • [Title] [Pathologic and anatomic evidence of peritoneal metastases].
  • Peritoneal metastases are secondary tumours of the peritoneum and the most common tumours at this location.
  • Ovarian carcinoma, colorectal cancer, and gastric cancer are the most frequent ones that show peritoneal involvement, along with carcinomas of the pancreas, gallbladder, uterus, and lung.
  • Primary tumours originating in the peritoneum such as malignant peritoneal mesothelioma, primary peritoneal carcinoma, and benign peritoneal tumours along with inflammatory and reactive lesions must be differentiated from peritoneal metastases.
  • Especially in cancer of unknown primary tumour, the discrimination between primary peritoneal tumours and peritoneal metastases is difficult and often requires immunohistochemical identification.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Medical insurance aspects of peritoneal tumors with particular attention to peritoneal mesotheliomas].
  • Malignant peritoneal mesotheliomas arise mainly in male patients and the median age of initial diagnosis is about 56 years.
  • Epitheloid subtype predominates in peritoneal mesotheliomas.
  • Asbestos exposure is the best-known and most common risk factor associated with the development of both pleural and peritoneal mesotheliomas and, therefore, about 90% of cases can be assessed as asbestos-associated.
  • Patients with peritoneal mesotheliomas have distinctly higher asbestos burden of the lungs than patients with pleural mesotheliomas.
  • The mean latency period between exposure and diagnosis of peritoneal mesothelioma ranges from 35 to 40 years and is comparable to that of pleural mesothelioma.
  • Mesothelioma of the tunica vaginalis testis also belongs to the group of peritoneal mesotheliomas.
  • No significant evidence exists for the classification of well-differentiated papillary mesothelioma, solitary fibrous tumor, adenomatoid tumor, primary peritoneal serous borderline tumor, and benign multicystic mesothelioma as asbestos-associated tumors.

  • [Title] Primary neoplasms of peritoneal and sub-peritoneal origin: CT findings.
  • Peritoneal carcinomatosis is a common metastatic manifestation of many organ-based malignancies, particularly carcinomas of the gastrointestinal tract and ovaries.
  • Primary neoplasms of peritoneal and sub-peritoneal origin occur much less frequently than metastatic peritoneal involvement from a known or occult primary tumor; however, these rare primary lesions (peritoneal mesothelioma, papillary serous carcinoma, desmoplastic small round cell tumor, benign and malignant mesenchymal tumors, lymphoproliferative disorders) are often first detected at computed tomography (CT) and should be considered in the absence of a known or suspected organ-based malignancy.
  • A precise diagnosis based on imaging findings alone is often not possible.
  • Furthermore, distinguishing a benign from a malignant process and a primary from a metastatic process is also challenging.
  • Nevertheless, CT features combined with the patient's relevant clinical and demographic data can help narrow the differential diagnosis for a peritoneum-based neoplasm in many cases.
  • CT is useful not only for the detection, characterization, and staging of primary neoplasms of peritoneal and subperitoneal origin, but also for guiding biopsy for tissue diagnosis.
