  • [Title] [Intraoperative extracorporeal irradiation and replantation in local treatment of primary malignant bone tumors].
  • In 13 patients with primary malignant bone tumors (10 Ewing's sarcoma, 1 parosteal osteosarcoma, 1 adamantinoma recurrence, and 1 MFH) local therapy was performed as intraoperative extracorporeal irradiation and replantation (IEIR) of the involved bone segment (5 tibia, 2 femur, and 6 pelvis).
  • Of the 13 patients (69%), 9 are alive at the time of the follow-up (5 CDF, 4 AWM(treated)) and 4 patients died of disease (DOD).
  • IEIR must be seen as an extraordinary reconstruction procedure in cases where established procedures such as endoprosthesis, biological reconstructions, or rotationplasties cannot be used or are refused by the patient.

  • [Title] Adamantinoma.
  • Adamantinoma is one of the rarest low-grade malignant bone tumours, representing less than 1% of them.
  • Fisher in 1913 named this tumour adamantinoma because of its similarity to ameloblastoma of the jaw.
  • Other long bones not uncommonly affected are the humerus, ulna, femur, fibula and radius.
  • The symptoms are not specific but most frequently the patient complains about swelling, redness, pain and sensitivity of the bone where the tumour is located.
  • Young males are more prone to develop adamantinoma than females.
  • Wide tumour excision and limb salvage reconstruction surgery, or an amputation, are the current surgical treatment options.
  • Radiotherapy and chemotherapy have not been shown to be effective modalities of treatment.

  • INTRODUCTION: The ameloblastoma is a rare tumor of odontogenic epithelial origin.
  • It is a neoplasm in which ameloblastic features are revealed by the primary growth in jaws and by any metastatic growth.
  • We present a case of a multirecurrent ameloblastoma of the mandible metastatic to the lung.
  • OBSERVATION: We present a case of a mandibular malignant ameloblastoma in a 42-year old man with widespread pulmonary metastases.
  • DISCUSSION: Ameloblastoma metastasis often occurs in the lung.
  • The curative treatment is surgical.
  • The results of palliative chemotherapy and radiotherapy are not always efficient.

  • There were seven cases (5 male and 2 female patients), which represent less than 4% of all odontogenic tumors diagnosed in these services.
  • There were six odontogenic carcinomas (two malignant ameloblastomas, two clear cell odontogenic carcinomas, one primary intraosseous carcinoma and one carcinoma arising in an odontogenic cyst) and one ameloblastic fibrosarcoma.
  • Clear cell odontogenic carcinomas occurred in the canine-premolar region, one in the maxilla and one in the mandible (one ia a man and one in a woman), while the remaining lesions affected the posterior region of the mandible, with a male predominance (4:1), which agrees with previously reported cases.
  • Surgical resection was the treatment employed in all carcinomas, while the ameloblastic fibrosarcoma was treated with chemotherapy due to its large extension, but without favorable response.
  • The patient with primary intraosseous carcinoma had submaxillary and cervical metastases and the neoplasm was the cause of death.

  • Recent studies have advocated the genotypic and phenotypic delineation of a novel Ewing's sarcoma histologic variant showing epithelial features defined as "adamantinoma-like Ewing's sarcoma".
  • We described an 18-year-old girl with a primary small round-cell sarcoma of the right tibia showing polyphenotypic differentiation with epithelioid features.
  • The neoplastic cells had mainly round or oval nuclei with fine chromatin with a portion of epithelial arrangements.
  • The immunohistochemical analysis showed the epithelial markers of cytokeratin 5/6/18, AE1/AE3, and cytokeratin high molecular weight were stained especially in the foci with epithelioid features, as well as MIC2, S100, and NSE.
  • The diagnosis of the lesion was confirmed as Ewing's sarcoma by the presence of the EWS-FLI1 fusion transcript, and could be defined as the so-called "adamantinoma-like Ewing's sarcoma".
  • After wide excision and high-dose chemotherapy with peripheral blood stem cell transfusion, the patient has been well and continuously event-free for 3 years since the initial diagnosis.

  • [Title] Metastasizing (malignant) ameloblastoma: review of a unique histopathologic entity and report of Mayo Clinic experience.
  • PURPOSE: To provide a comprehensive review of metastasizing (malignant) ameloblastoma, establish a new baseline of valid cases using histologic criteria and minimum documentation, and report 3 cases from the Mayo Clinic files.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Ninety-eight original reports of "metastasizing," "malignant," or "atypical" ameloblastoma were reviewed.
  • The following data were gathered for reports that demonstrated well-differentiated ameloblastoma at the metastatic site: gender, ethnicity, age at time of primary tumor diagnosis, histologic pattern of primary tumor, anatomic sites of primary and metastatic tumors, interval from diagnosis of primary to diagnosis of metastasis, number of recurrences preceding metastasis, treatment responses to radiation and/or chemotherapy, presence of hypercalcemia, and length of survival after metastasis.
  • RESULTS: Twenty-seven valid reports of metastasizing (malignant) ameloblastoma were identified; 81% originated in the mandible, recurring on average 4 times before metastasis.
  • Lungs were the initial site of metastasis in 78% of reports, of which 71% were bilateral.
  • The average time from diagnosis of primary to metastasis was 18 years.
  • Over half of the patients were alive and had survived an average of 10 years since diagnosis of metastasis.
  • Those patients who had succumbed to their disease had an average survival time of 3 years after diagnosis of metastasis.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Metastasis of well-differentiated ameloblastoma occurs more rarely than previously believed.
  • Metastasis to the lungs bilaterally, by the hematogenous route, usually follows multiple failed attempts at primary tumor control.
  • Treatment of metastasizing (malignant) ameloblastoma should include close observation, thoracotomy with wedge resections, or experimental chemotherapeutic combinations.

  • [Title] [An autopsied case of metastatic endocrine carcinoma of the pancreas with primary site difficult to identify].
  • A 40-year-old man suffering from right cheek swelling was first diagnosed with ameloblastoma or anaplastic poorly-differentiated carcinoma of the head and neck region.
  • He received 2 courses of CDDP/TXT chemotherapy (cisplatin 75 mg/m2, docetaxel 80 mg/m2) and achieved a partial response, but his carcinoma of the pancreas recurred.
  • He also achieved a partial response with 2 courses of CBDCA/TXL regimen (carboplatin AUC=6, paclitaxel 200 mg/m2), but later died from his progressive disease.
  • This case was close to a cancer with an unknown primary (CUP) site, and several favorable sub-sets of CUP have been identified, which are responsive to systemic chemotherapy.
  • Poorly-differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas like this case are highly sensitive to chemotherapy, and a careful pathological diagnosis may clarify its sensitivity to chemotherapy and the prognosis.

  • [Title] Are we on the brink of nonsurgical treatment for ameloblastoma?
  • OBJECTIVE: Recent identification of altered molecular signaling pathways in neoplasia has begun to elucidate mechanisms of oncogenesis, differentiation, and tumor progression, and to suggest plausible nonsurgical considerations for treatment.
  • Here we review the sonic hedgehog (SHH) and PI3K/Akt/mTOR signaling pathways, their role in ameloblastoma, a locally aggressive odontogenic tumor, and evidence for consideration of therapeutic approaches that target these molecular pathways.
  • STUDY DESIGN: This is a comprehensive review of the literature regarding alterations in signaling mechanisms associated with ameloblastomas.
  • In addition, this review attempts to explore and discuss possible inhibitors to these pathways that may have utility in treating ameloblastoma.
  • RESULTS: The expression of SHH signaling molecules in ameloblastomas at the mRNA and protein levels has intimated that these molecules may play a role in cell proliferation of these tumors.
  • Immunohistochemical analysis has revealed aberrant signaling in the PI3K/Akt/mTOR pathway in ameloblastomas and appears to be a valuable tool for elucidating pathogenesis and aggressiveness, and selecting optimal therapeutics.
  • CONCLUSION: The understanding of altered pathways in ameloblastoma may soon provide nonsurgical options for the treatment of this condition.
  • Thus, tumors that entirely depend on active SHH signaling for survival/growth and maintenance may well be susceptible targets for combined chemotherapy with SHH-specific inhibitors together with PI3K, Akt, or mTOR blocking agents.

  • RESULTS: The tumor diagnoses were squamous cell carcinoma (n = 18), chondrosarcoma (n = 3), sinonasal carcinoma (n = 2), adenoid cystic carcinoma (n = 2), sinonasal papilloma (n = 2), esthesioneuroblastoma (n = 1); hemangiopericytoma (n = 1); ameloblastoma (n = 1), and osteosarcoma (n = 1).
  • Twenty-eight patients had a maxillectomy or other sinus surgeries, 10 had radiotherapy, and 14 had chemotherapy and radiotherapy before DCR.
  • CONCLUSIONS: DCR alleviates nasolacrimal duct blockage in most patients with head and neck tumors and is not associated with unusual complications in this setting.

  • [Title] Sarcomas of the mandible. Literature review and case reports.
  • The authors treated six patients with sarcomas of the mandible over a period of ten years: 2 patients with fibrosarcomas, 2 with lymphosarcomas, one with osteogenic sarcoma and one with chondrosarcoma.
  • The patients' ages ranged from 28 to 65 years, one was male and five - female.
  • The present study reports three cases (osteogenic sarcoma, fibrosarcoma, chondrosarcoma) with specific clinical and radiographic characteristics, demonstrating the differences between the various types of sarcomas.
  • Special attention is paid to the first clinical signs and symptoms, and to the differential diagnosis with inflammatory conditions (post-extraction alveolitis, chronic odontogenic osteomyelitis), benign tumors (osteoblastoclastoma, ameloblastoma, odontogenic cysts, fibrous dysplasia) and centrally developing jaw carcinomas.
  • Particular emphasis is given to CT imaging and morphological examinations in making an accurate diagnosis and providing adequate treatment.
  • Early diagnosis and precise surgical treatment (total resection or hemiexarticulation, or neck dissection if submandibular or cervical metastases are present) are essential to achieve satisfactory management of these malignant neoplasms.
  • The radiotherapy and chemotherapy administered according to the histologic features of the tumor are also of significance.
