  • [Title] Urethral metastasis of lung carcinoma with germinative cell features.
  • INTRODUCTION: We present the case of a patient with urethral metastasis of a lung carcinoma with germinative cell features.
  • Patient was being treated with chemotherapy and radiotherapy during the past 3 months due to primary carcinoma of the lung with brain metastasis.
  • Biopsy specimens, obtained from the lung, brain and urethra tumors, revealed the same neoplasia, with definitive diagnosis being undifferentiated giant cell carcinoma of the lung with germinative features.
  • Considering his clinical condition and poor prognosis, a decision was made to treat the patient only clinically.
  • COMMENTS: As far as we were able to access, urethral metastasis from lung carcinoma had never been described in the indexed literature.
  • Due to the extremely limited experience with these tumors, there is not a defined treatment and the prognosis remains quite poor.

  • A 62-year-old man consulted us for further examination of left giant hydronephrosis which was accidentally found by abdominal ultrasonography.
  • Computed tomography (CT) revealed left giant hydronephrosis containing high-density fluid which was suspected of hemorrhage in the renal pelvis.
  • Systemic examination by CT and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed renal pelvic tumors in the left kidney as well as multiple metastatic lesions in the lung, liver and bone.
  • Pathological examination of the left renal pelvic tumors obtained by biopsy showed high-grade urothelial carcinoma.
  • Although systemic and intra-arterial chemotherapy showed partial response in the metastatic lesions, he died of cancer 1 year and 3 months after the first diagnosis.

  • Histological examination of the biopsy specimens obtained from the tumor in the left upper bronchus revealed small cell lung cancer, whereas examination of the specimens obtained from the left B(3) revealed noncaseating epithelioid cell granulomas containing giant cells, confirming the diagnosis of sarcoidosis.
  • The patient underwent chemotherapy with carboplatin and etoposide without any steroids.
  • After 4 courses of chemotherapy, bronchoscopic examination revealed that the tumor had shrunk, and the BALF CD4/CD8 ratio had decreased; further, no histological evidence of sarcoidosis was seen in specimens obtained from the left B(3).
  • Concomitant small cell lung cancer and sarcoidosis is rare.
  • Interestingly, cancer chemotherapy might improve pulmonary sarcoidosis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [A giant testicular tumor detected with dyspnea due to lung metastases: a case report].
  • Clinical examination revealed the left infant-head-sized testicular tumor, multiple lung metastases and retroperitoneal bulky lymph node metastasis with marked elevation of serum lactic dehydrogenase (LDH) and alpha-fetoprotein.
  • Left radical orchiectomy followed by the chemotherapy with etoposide and cisplatin (EP) for 4 cycles was performed.
  • The tumor weighed 1,700 g, and was pathologically diagnosed as mixed germ cell tumor consisting of embryonal carcinoma and yolk sac tumor.
  • After the treatment, the tumor markers were normalized with partial response (PR) of lung metastases and complete response (CR) of retroperitoneal lymph node metastasis.
  • Thereafter, biopsy of lung metastases through video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) was performed, and pathologically no viable cells were detected.
  • Five months after the treatment, he was seized with convulsion due to brain metastasis with hemorrhage.
  • Therefore, a surgical resection of brain metastasis and 2nd line chemotherapy with etoposide, ifosfamide and cisplatin (VIP) chemotherapy for 3 cycles was performed.
  • The patient has been free of recurrence for 21 months after the 2nd line chemotherapy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Since histological examination showed grade 3 transitional cell carcinoma containing giant cells that were positive for beta-human chorionic gonadotropin (beta-HCG), we made a diagnosis of beta-HCG-producing bladder cancer.
  • Because of his advanced age and poor general condition, the patient underwent partial cystectomy alone without adjuvant chemotherapy.
  • One month later, a chest X-ray film revealed multiple lung metastases, and he developed paraplegia of the lower extremities suggesting spinal metastases.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Ovarian undifferentiated carcinoma resembling giant cell carcinoma of the lung.
  • Giant cell carcinoma (GCC) is a highly aggressive variant of sarcomatoid carcinoma of the lung.
  • To date, however, there have been no reported cases of ovarian carcinoma mainly composed of GCC.
  • Herein is reported the case of a 54-year-old Japanese woman with an undifferentiated ovarian carcinoma producing granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) and an inflammatory cytokine.
  • Histologically, the tumor was composed of cohesive nests or discohesive pleomorphic mononucleated or multinucleated tumor giant cells, accompanied by inflammatory cell infiltration and emperipolesis.
  • Adjuvant chemotherapy was administered but induced severe heart failure and severe neutropenia, probably due to the presence of hypercytokinemia and excess G-CSF.
  • Upon the appearance of these fatal side-effects the chemotherapy was immediately discontinued and replaced with radiotherapy.
  • The recognition of this type of ovarian tumor is important for clinical management, because adjuvant chemotherapy is the standard treatment for clinical management of epithelial ovarian cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Significance of video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery in the diagnosis and staging of primary pulmonary neoplasms].
  • The authors describe the usefulness of video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) in the staging and diagnosis of primary lung cancer.
  • In the Oncological Thoracic Surgery Department of Milan's National Cancer Institute, over the period from January 1995 to January 2000, 46 patients, suspected of having mediastinal lymphadenopathies in the presence of lung cancer, were proposed for a VATS biopsy.
  • Forty-four patients underwent a thoracoscopic lymph node biopsy (95%), while in 2 subjects, in whom pleural metastases were found, the histological diagnosis was established by pleural metastatic nodule thoracoscopic biopsy (5%).
  • Histological examination revealed adenocarcinoma in 23 cases (50%), epidermoid carcinoma in 12 (26%), microcytoma in 8 (17%) and giant-cell lung carcinoma in 3 (7%).
  • The subsequent treatment was neoadjuvant chemotherapy for stage III A patients and chemotherapy in association with radiotherapy for stage III B subjects.
  • The patients with microcytoma underwent integrated radiotherapy and chemotherapy and pan-encephalic radiotherapy.
  • In conclusion, VATS proved extremely useful in the diagnosis and staging of patients affected by lung cancer with synchronous lymph node enlargement.
  • This procedure allowed the diagnosis of suspect involved mediastinal lymph nodes in all cases thus affected and the exclusion of lymph node disease in patients subsequently treated by lung resection in a single session.
  • The precise staging obtained then made it possible to direct the patients towards the most appropriate form of treatment.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Primary lung cancer arising from the wall of a giant bulla.
  • We report a 58-year-old man who underwent surgical treatment of primary lung cancer arising from the wall of a giant bulla.
  • Chest roentgenography and computed tomography revealed multiple emphysematous bullae in the bilateral upper lobes, and a right upper giant bulla with a mass measuring 6 cm arising on the bulla wall.
  • Right upper lobectomy was performed, the postoperative pathological diagnosis was large cell carcinoma arising from the wall of a giant bulla.
  • Although the postoperative course was uneventful and he was discharged, he underwent partial resection of the jejunum for recurrence of carcinoma in the jejunum, and postoperative chemotherapy, and he was alive 20 months after that operation.
  • In general, patients with both pulmonary bullous disease and primary lung cancer have a very poor prognosis, because they receive treatment when the tumor is at an advanced stage.
  • On the basis of our review of the literature, we recommend that middle-age male patients with a giant bulla who smoke should have annual chest roentgenography and/or chest computed tomography to screen for lung cancer arising in or close to the bullous disease, and that a giant bulla should be resected in patients older than 50 years because of the high incidence of coexisting cancer and bulla, to improve the prognosis of this disease.

  • [Title] Diagnosis of lung cancer: pathology of invasive and preinvasive neoplasia.
  • The histopathologic appearance of lung carcinoma remains an important guide to prognosis and treatment.
  • The newly revised World Health Organization classification retains the broadest pathologic categories of the older classification but includes several revisions, including the elimination of the small cell, intermediate cell type category; the addition of large cell neuroendocrine and spindle/giant cell categories; and an extended consideration of preneoplastic lesions.
  • The histopathologic classification of lung cancer is expected to continue to change as clinical practice and biological understanding of these tumors change.
  • The significance of expression of neuroendocrine markers, histologic grading of response to chemotherapy, and delineation of morphologic changes preceding the occurrence of invasive carcinoma are all areas where understanding microscopic cellular changes in the airways will be critical for clinical advance.

  • METHODS: Twenty cases of pleomorphic pulmonary carcinoma were collected and studied clinicopathologically.
  • Histologic diagnosis was established by using light microscopic examination and immunohistochemistry.
  • RESULTS: We postoperatively diagnosed 20 cases of pleomorphic carcinoma: 14 cases were exclusively spindle and giant-cell carcinomas, 2 cases were spindle and giant-cell carcinoma combined with adenocarcinoma, 2 were combined with squamous cell carcinoma, and 2 were combined with large cell carcinoma.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The prognosis of patients with pleomorphic carcinoma was poor, despite surgery and adjuvant chemotherapy, because of early relapse of disease.
  • In case of preoperatively proven pulmonary pleomorphic carcinoma, surgery should be recommended to N0 patients.

  • [Title] Combined choriocarcinoma and adenocarcinoma of the lung occurring in a man: case report and review of the literature.
  • BACKGROUND: Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG)-producing large or giant cell carcinoma of the lung is not uncommon, but primary pulmonary choriocarcinoma is an extremely rare entity.
  • RESULTS: Computed tomography scan of the chest demonstrated an expanding thickness of the bullous wall within areas of emphysematous change in the lower lobe of the right lung.
  • Moreover, a new, round tumor near the thickness appeared and rapidly expanded evenly into the surrounding lung tissue.
  • Because of the pleural dissemination, the patient was treated with chemotherapy.
  • At last follow-up he was alive and well with a gradually increasing serum hCG-beta level in spite of chemotherapy.
  • Of the 12 cases reported to date in the English literature, 3 cases of choriocarcinoma with the coexistence of another type of pulmonary carcinoma were reported.
  • To the authors' knowledge the clinical relation between these two types of carcinoma are unknown because all cases to date have been detected at the time of autopsy.
  • Only in the current study case could the clinical course of the disease be followed and pathologic confirmation achieved, although the pathogenesis of the two types of carcinoma could not be determined.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: While choriocarcinoma is a rapidly invasive, widely metastasizing malignancy, it responds well to chemotherapy, so it is important to obtain an early diagnosis.
  • Chest computed tomography revealed multiple nodules in both lung fields.
  • The breast mass was clinically suspected to be a metastatic lung cancer.
  • FNAC of the breast showed a malignant tumor that had been misdiagnosed as a metastatic non-small cell carcinoma of the lung.
  • CONCLUSION: The cytologic features of choriocarcinoma are quite characteristic, with side-by-side, malignant, mononucleated cells and multinucleated giant cells corresponding to cytotrophoblasts and syncytiotrophoblasts, respectively.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE: Previous studies have found that HERG, a kind of K(+) channel protein, is expressed in some cancers, but its expression is weak or lost in normal tissues.
  • This study was to investigate HERG expression in various cancer cell lines, its correlation with chemosensitivity of cancer cells to doxorubicin, and its biochemical modulation.
  • METHODS: HERG expression in human colon carcinoma cell line HT-29, human breast carcinoma cell line MCF-7, human lung carcinoma cell line A549, and human high-metastatic giant cell lung carcinoma cell line PG was analyzed by Western blot.
  • HERG may serve as a molecular marker and modulating target for individualized cancer therapy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • A detailed knowledge of the atypical radiologic features of a pulmonary metastasis with a good understanding of the histopathologic background is essential for correct diagnosis.
  • Squamous cell carcinoma is regarded as the most common cell type of a cavitating metastasis, but metastatic nodules from adenocarcinomas and sarcomas also cavitate occasionally.
  • Even though tumor emboli in pulmonary arteries can be seen at computed tomography, diagnosis is difficult because they are located in small or medium arteries.
  • In cases of an endobronchial or a solitary pulmonary metastasis, differentiation between bronchogenic carcinoma and metastasis is difficult.
  • A sterilized metastasis after chemotherapy is radiologically indistinguishable from a residual viable tumor.
  • Benign tumors such as uterine leiomyomas and giant cell tumors of the bone rarely metastasize to the lung.

  • [Title] Advanced malignant solitary fibrous tumor in pelvis responding to radiation therapy.
  • Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is a rare spindle cell neoplasm that is benign in most cases.
  • Herein is reported a case of a 74-year-old woman with a giant malignant SFT in the pelvis.
  • Along with massive invasion to adjacent organs and multiple lung metastases detected on radiography, biopsy from the tumor through the vaginal wall showed malignant looking spindle-cell neoplasm with increased cellularity, areas of necrosis, and high mitotic activity (5/10 high-power fields).
  • Based on pathological features and clinical presentation, diagnosis of malignant SFT was made.
  • The patient received systemic and the intra-arterial chemotherapy followed by whole pelvic radiation therapy (50 Gy).
  • Afterwards, improvement was observed radiologically and pathologically in the 12 months' follow up after the radiation therapy.
  • This is the first report related to therapeutic remarks on advanced malignant SFT.
