Analysis of national and single-center incidence and survival after liver transplantation for hepatoblastoma: New trends and future opportunities
Background: Liver transplantation (LTx) for hepatoblatoma appears to be increasing. Favorable tumor histology is increasingly linked to survival after surgical resection and could also determine posttransplantation outcomes.Methods: To evaluate national trends in tumor and LTx incidence as the basis for observations at some LTx centers, and determinants of survival after LTx for hepatoblastoma, we queried the National Cancer Institute's Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) registry representing 9.451% of the U.S. population (1975–2007), the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS, 1988–2010, n = 332), and...

Paratesticular cystadenomas with ovarian stroma, metaplastic serous müllerian epithelium, and male adnexal tumor of probable wolffian origin: A series of 5 hitherto poorly recognized testicular tumors
We present 5 paratesticular tumors, which manifested ovarian-type stroma and various serous müllerian epithelial structures including serous fallopian-like epithelium and proliferations closely mimicking cystic serous borderline tumors of the ovary. In addition, 3 of the tumors in our series revealed a solid epithelial component, which was morphologically and immunohistochemically similar to so called “female adnexal tumor of probable wolffian origin,” which is a rare neoplasm described so far only in the female genital tract, retroperitoneum, and the pelvic cavity. In analogy with mixed epithelial and stromal tumors ...

Mesothelioma of the tunica vaginalis with BerEp4 and LeuM1 expression: identification of cytoplasmic tonofilaments by electron microscopy is a key diagnostic feature
Paratesticular mesothelioma is a rare tumour, representing only 0.3–5% of all mesotheliomas; approximately 223 cases have been described to date.1 Morphologically, most paratesticular mesotheliomas are epithelial, or mixed epithelial and sarcomatoid; with papillary, tubulopapillary or solid architectural patterns.2 3 Papillary mesotheliomas can be difficult to distinguish from papillary serous carcinoma on morphological grounds alone and usually require immunohistochemical and ultrastructural studies. Mesotheliomas are typically positive for calretinin, CK5/6, D2-40, vimentin and thrombomodulin but negative for BerEp...

Malignant mixed epithelial and stromal tumor of the kidney: Report of the first male case
We report the first case of malignant mixed epithelial and stromal tumor of the kidney in a male patient. A 67‐year‐old Japanese man receiving hormonal therapy for prostatic cancer was found to have a right renal cystic tumor and underwent right nephrectomy. Histologically, the tumor was composed of benign epithelial and stromal cells in addition to malignant undifferentiated stromal cells. Immunohistochemically, the malignant stromal component was positive for cluster of differentiation 99 and B‐cell lymphoma 2, but no chimeric transcripts for synovial sarcoma were identified. Finally, a diagnosis of malignant m...

Beyond renal cell carcinoma: rare and unusual renal masses
Abstract The vast majority of primary renal masses represent clear cell or papillary renal cell carcinomas, angiomyolipomas, or transitional cell carcinomas. However, a number of more rare masses can also be encountered, many of which can be very difficult to differentiate from these more common entities based on their imaging features. These uncommon entities include metanephric adenoma, epithelioid angiomyolipoma, medullary renal cell carcinomas, multilocular cystic nephroma, hemangiopericytoma, hemangioma, leiomyoma, leiomyosarcoma, solitary fibrous tumor, renal plasmacytomas, and mixed epithelial and str...

Renal angiomyoadenomatous tumor
We report a case of a 40-year-old woman with renal angiomyoadenomatous tumor, a rare neoplasm with only 6 previous cases reported in the literature. Unlike our case, most tumors have been identified in middle-aged males; they present as well-circumscribed, encapsulated tan-brown masses with variably prominent cystic areas. Microscopically, the tumors have a variably thick leiomyomatous capsule, which invaginates into the tumor and intermixes with tubules or solid nests of clear epithelial cells. The epithelial cells have low-grade basally oriented nuclei, and their basement membranes are intimately linked to a labyrinthine...

Clinicopathologic features of the mixed epithelial and mesenchymal type metaplastic breast carcinoma with myoepithelial differentiation in a subset of six cases.
Abstract Metaplastic carcinoma (MC) of the breast, consisting of epithelial and mixed epithelial-mesenchymal tumors, are extremely rare human neoplasms. They are mostly detected between the 5th and 7th decade and have an unfavorable prognosis. Therefore, it is of utmost important to find out the behavior and also the immunohistochemical (IHC) profile of these tumors. In the current study, the aim was to examine 6 cases of MC with detailed clinico-pathological variables of cancer, follow-up and IHC profile of several antigens. The following immunohistochemical markers were used: MNF116, vimentin, CD10, smooth muscle...

Hepatoblastoma—An attempt of histological subtyping on fine‐needle aspiration material
AbstractHepatoblastoma (HB) is classified into epithelial, mixed (epithelial/mesenchymal), and small‐cell (anaplastic) type. Wnt/β‐catenin pathway plays a key role in hepatic development, regeneration, and tumorigenesis, and HB is known to present β‐catenin mutations (50–90%). The present study was undertaken to delineate the cytomorphologic features of HB and to evaluate the feasibility of subtyping of HB on fine‐needle aspiration cytology (FNAC). The expression of β‐catenin in these tumors was also evaluated both of histopathologic sections and on the aspirated material. Thirty‐three cases with fine‐ne...

Unusual Presentation of Rare Case of Papillary Adenofibroma of Cervix in a Young Woman
We report the case of a large polypoidal mass per vagina occupying the whole pelvis in a young woman. Preoperative biopsy showed benign epithelial and mullerian mesenchymal components suggestive of mullerian adenofibroma. Total hysterectomy with bilateral salpingectomy was done. The diagnosis of papillary adenofibroma of cervix was made. The total surgery assured complete excision and permitted adequate sampling to exclude malignancy.

Potential biomarkers for hepatoblastoma: Results from the SIOPEL-3 study
Abstract: Hepatoblastoma (HB) is a rare malignant liver tumour found in infants. Many heterogenous histological tumour subtypes exist. Although survival rates have improved dramatically in recent years with the use of platinum-based chemotherapy, there still exists a subset of HB that does not respond to treatment. There are currently no tumour biomarkers in use and in this study we aim to evaluate potential biomarkers to aid identification of relapse cases that would otherwise be overlooked by current prognostication. This may identify patients that would benefit from more aggressive therapy and could improve overall surv...

Graded activation of the MEK1/MT1-MMP axis determines renal epithelial cell tumor phenotype
Activation of Raf/Ras/mitogen-activated protein kinase (MEK)/mitogen-activated protein kinase signaling and elevated expression of membrane type-1 matrix metalloproteinase (MT1-MMP) are associated with von Hippel–Lindau gene alterations in renal cell carcinoma. We postulated that the degree of MEK activation was related to graded expression of MT1-MMP and the resultant phenotype of renal epithelial tumors. Madin Darby canine kidney epithelial cells transfected with a MEK1 expression plasmid yielded populations with morphologic phenotypes ranging from epithelial, mixed epithelial/mesenchymal to mesenchymal. Clones wer...

A Novel Method for Isolating Individual Cellular Components from the Adult Human Distal Lung.
Abstract A variety of lung diseases, such as pulmonary emphysema and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, develop in the lung alveoli. There are multiple cell types localized in the alveoli, including epithelial, mesenchymal and endothelial cells. These resident cells participate in the pathogenesis of lung diseases in various ways. To clearly elaborate the mechanism(s) of these pathologic processes, cell-type specific analyses of lung diseases are required. However, no method exists for individually isolating the different types of cells found in the alveoli. Here, we report the development of a FACS-based method for th...

Nonserous Ovarian Epithelial Tumors
Abstract: This review covers the group of relatively uncommon nonserous ovarian epithelial tumors. The authors focus on the group's distinctiveness from the much more common serous tumors and show the similarities across entities. Diagnostic criteria that separate the different entities are currently being debated. Particular problems include the reproducible diagnosis of high-grade endometrioid, transitional cell, mixed epithelial and undifferentiated carcinomas. Furthermore, despite recognition that most malignant mucinous tumors involving ovary represent metastases from extraovarian primary sites, many misdiagnoses stil...

Laparoendoscopic single-site nephrectomy using a modified umbilical incision and a home-made transumbilical port.
Conclusion: LESS nephrectomy using a home-made port and modified umbilical incision is feasible with both minimal incision and cost-effective. Our technique may be more useful for extirpative procedures in which a specimen needs to be removed intact, because incision length can be freely adjusted. Prospective comparisons are warranted to more clearly elucidate the utility of this surgical technique. PMID: 21319351 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Yonsei Medical Journal)

Endometrial carcinomas with ambiguous features
Endometrial carcinomas are a heterogenous group of tumors that show variable histologies, molecular abnormalities and clinical outcomes. The idea of rigid distinctions between tumor types is appealing to pathologists, gynecologists, researchers and patients, but in a recent study where high grade endometrial carcinomas were reviewed by three experienced gynecologic pathologists, diagnostic agreement about tumor type was reached in only approximately one half of cases. In general, biologically and clinically validated diagnostic criteria are lacking for high grade endometrial carcinomas and for those that appear mixed epith...

Exophytic benign mixed epithelial stromal tumour of the kidney: case report of a rare tumour entity
Conclusion: MEST represents a distinctive benign tumour entity of the kidney, which affects perimenopausal woman. The tumour should be distinguished from other cystic renal neoplasms. By imaging studies it is difficult to distinguish between a benign or malignant nature of the tumour. Thus, intraoperative frozen section is necessary for conservative surgery, since the overall prognosis is favourable and renal function can be preserved in most cases. (Source: Diagnostic Pathology)

Immunohistochemical Markers of Value in the Diagnosis of Mesenchymal Lesions of the Female Genital Tract
Abstract: Pure mesenchymal tumors may occur anywhere in the female genital tract, but they are most common in the uterine corpus, leiomyoma being by far the most prevalent. These tumors, and other uncommon mesenchymal lesions within the uterine corpus and elsewhere in the female genital tract, may result in several diagnostic problems. Morphology remains paramount and, in most cases, an unequivocal diagnosis can be made based on examination of the hematoxylin and eosin stained sections, combined with an appreciation of the clinical and gross pathologic features. In difficult cases, immunohistochemistry can significantly co...

Mixed epithelial and stromal renal tumour in a 12-year-old boy
Abstract: Mixed epithelial and stromal tumour of the kidney (MESTK) is a rare kidney neoplasm that occurs almost exclusively in perimenopausal women. Long-term oestrogen replacement appears to play a major role in its pathogenesis. Around 70 cases have been described in the international literature, none of which involve male children. Herein, we describe an atypical case of MESTK diagnosed in a 12-year-old prepubertal boy who presented with hematuria. Pathology and immunohistochemistry revealed a typical MESTK. The child was free of disease at 2-year follow up after a partial nephrectomy and tumour excision. (Source: Jour...

Examples of this tumor have been reported under various names including cystic hamartoma of the renal pelvis and adult mesoblastic nephroma. MEST demonstrates a marked female predominance (6:1 female-to-male ratio) and, although classically described as a perimenopausal tumor, patient age range is 24 to 84 years and it often affects women with prolonged estrogen exposure. MEST occurs rarely in the male population and it has been associated with androgen deprivation therapy in some cas...

We have read with a great interest the review article by Montironi et al about cystic nephroma (CN) and mixed epithelial and stromal tumor of the kidney (MESTK) . The review was prepared mainly from a pathologic point of view. We would like to add some clinical comments that are important for everyday clinical urologic praxis. At our institution, urologists are very familiar with these ideas because the concept of MESTK was described by our pathologists , and we have also published clinical opinions on these tumors . We would like to make the following recommendations for everyday clinical praxis: (Source: European Urology)

Occurrence of hepatocellular carcinoma after hepatoblastoma resection in an adult with hepatitis C virus.
Hepatoblastoma is a rare malignancy in adults. It is often diagnosed after the appearance of symptoms, therefore, the tumor size tends to be larger. In patients with no indication for a hepatic resection, the prognosis of adult hepatoblastoma is quite poor. A 54-year-old man with hepatitis C virus-associated liver cirrhosis was initially treated with a hepatic resection for a hepatic tumor, 3 cm in diameter. The tumor consisted of osteoid-like and cartilaginous foci, myxomatous stroma, and poorly differentiated hepatocellular carcinomatous cells and was diagnosed as a mixed epithelial and mesenchymal hepatoblastoma. Tw...

Renal angiomyoadenomatous tumor: morphologic, immunohistochemical, and molecular genetic study of a distinct entity
We present a series of a distinct tumorous entity named renal angiomyoadenomatous tumor (RAT). Five cases were retrieved from the consultation files of the authors. Histologic and immunohistochemical features were evaluated. Sequencing analysis of coding region of the VHL gene was carried out in all cases. The tumors were composed of admixture of an epithelial clear cell component and prominent leiomyomatous stroma. Epithelial cells formed adenomatous tubular formations endowed with blister-like apical snouts. All tubular/glandular structures were lined by a fine capillary network. The epithelial component was positive...
