The practice of clinical pathology: a quantitative description of laboratory director activities at a large academic medical center.
CONCLUSIONS: Although the activities of clinical laboratory directors have been described elsewhere, this is the first study detailing the effort allocated to these various activities in quantitative terms. The study demonstrated that less than 20% of an academic laboratory director's effort involves administrative activities that could potentially be performed by a professional manager lacking doctorate level medical or scientific expertise.

Large B-Cell Lymphomas Poor in B Cells and Rich in PD-1+ T Cells Can Mimic T-Cell Lymphomas.
CONCLUSIONS: Large B-cell lymphomas poor in B cells and rich in T cells can have diffuse sheets of reactive PD-1+ T cells, some with atypical morphologic and immunophenotypic features mimicking a T-cell lymphoma. Careful assessment of the immunoarchitecture and background inflammatory and stromal cells can prevent erroneous diagnoses in such cases.

Reduced glucocorticoid receptor expression predicts bladder tumor recurrence and progression.
CONCLUSIONS: GR expression was downregulated in bladder tumors compared with nonneoplastic bladder tumors and in high-grade/MI tumors compared with low-grade/NMI tumors. Decreased expression of GR, as an independent prognosticator, predicted recurrence of NMI tumors. These results support experimental evidence suggesting an inhibitory role of GR signals in bladder cancer outgrowth.

Evaluation of contemporary prostate and urothelial lineage biomarkers in a consecutive cohort of poorly differentiated bladder neck carcinomas.
CONCLUSIONS: Novel IHC markers show improved diagnostic performance that enables positive and negative support for identifying histogenesis with the use of as few as two markers for this critical therapeutic distinction.

Sporadic lymphoplasmacytic cholecystitis: a clinicopathologic entity.
CONCLUSIONS: While obstructive LPC is traditionally described as acalculous, chronic cholecystitis, we show this inflammatory pattern occurs both in the presence of gallstones and outside of previously described disease categories. In addition, LPC occurs in a unique patient demographic (older men), often presenting similarly to acute cholecystitis.

Abnormal cervical cytology after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation.
CONCLUSIONS: Pap smears after BMT show a high incidence of dysplastic lesions. Moreover, conditioning including busulfan is often associated with therapy-related cytologic atypia, which may lead to unnecessary colposcopies and biopsies. Knowledge of the patient's history and a careful evaluation of the smears are mandatory in these cases. PMID: 25015864 [PubMed - in process] (Source: American Journal of Clinical Pathology)

Alternate clonal dominance in richter transformation presenting as extranodal diffuse large B-cell lymphoma and synchronous classic hodgkin lymphoma.
CONCLUSIONS: In this case, the elaborate clinical and molecular picture may be correlated to an alternate dominance of two distinct clonal populations probably influenced by therapeutic and environmental factors. PMID: 25015865 [PubMed - in process] (Source: American Journal of Clinical Pathology)

Cutaneous intravascular natural killer-cell lymphoma: a case report and review of the literature.
CONCLUSIONS: IVNKL should be distinguished from extranodal NK/T-cell lymphoma (nasal type) and aggressive NK-cell leukemia. These three diseases have a similar phenotype and are all related to Epstein-Barr virus infection. However, the pathogenesis of similarities and differences needs further study. In particular, IVNKL is quite unusual. The treatment of IVNKL is difficult, and the prognosis is poor. Currently, IVNKL is not included in the World Health Organization classification subtypes and has been classified into NK/T-cell lymphoma (nasal type). However, in view of the unique characteristics of this disease, we propos...

Neonatal silver-russell syndrome with maternal uniparental heterodisomy, trisomy 7 mosaicism, and dysplasia of the cerebellum.
CONCLUSIONS: This unusual association of SRS and dysplasia of the cerebellum might be related to the presence of the trisomy 7 mosaicism on the cerebellum. Our observation strengthens the hypothesis that the phenotype observed in patients with SRS with UPD(7)m might also result from an undetected low level of trisomy 7 mosaicism that could best be revealed by performing cytogenetic investigations.

Misleading hemoglobin a1c levels in a patient with paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria.
CONCLUSIONS: Hemoglobin A1c levels must be interpreted with caution in patients with hematologic diseases that change RBC survival. Serum fructosamine and glycated albumin measurements are alternative measures of time-averaged blood glucose control and may be useful in this subset of patients.

Multiple Macroenzymes in a Patient With AIDS: Diagnosis Using Ultrafiltration.
CONCLUSIONS: A previous report shows that in cases of excess immunoglobulin, PEG coprecipitates monomeric enzymes along with serum globulins, causing false-positive reporting of macroenzymes. This may explain the discrepancy between PEG and UF results in the presence of hypergammaglobulinemia, making UF a better method of detection in these circumstances.

The Effects of Under 6 Hours of Formalin Fixation on Hormone Receptor and HER2 Expression in Invasive Breast Cancer: A Systematic Review.
CONCLUSIONS: Available data on the effect of brief fixation on receptor status are limited. However, brief fixation of very highly expressing breast cancers does not seem to alter ER, PR, and HER2 status. Nevertheless, scoring inconsistencies have been observed. Further research is required in larger study populations with more low-expressing cases for future validation.

Team-based learning in a pathology residency training program.
CONCLUSIONS: The use of TBL promotes teamwork and learning in a pathology residency program. Residents scored higher on the readiness assurance tests when working in teams, demonstrating the effectiveness of team learning and achievement.

Laboratory turnaround times in response to an abrupt increase in specimen testing after a natural disaster.

Clinical Performance of the BD Onclarity HPV Assay Using an Adjudicated Cohort of BD SurePath Liquid-Based Cytology Specimens.
CONCLUSIONS: The clinical performance of The BD Onclarity HPV Assay with respect to histology end points was similar to HC2. Moreover, discordant analysis revealed improved performance of the BD assay with respect to ability to provide extended genotyping information and lack of cross-reactivity with low-risk HPV types associated with cellular abnormalities. The relative risks for CIN 3 disease for HPV 31 and HPV 33/58 (combined) were comparable to that of HPV 18 in this population, suggesting that these genotypes may warrant monitoring in future studies.

Semiquantitative GATA-3 Immunoreactivity in Breast, Bladder, Gynecologic Tract, and Other Cytokeratin 7-Positive Carcinomas.
CONCLUSIONS: Strong GATA-3 expression is a reliable marker of primary breast carcinoma in the appropriate clinical context. GATA-3 reactivity in around 70% of triple-negative breast carcinomas is also clinically useful. Significant reactivity in gynecologic squamous cell carcinomas suggests that GATA-3 alone cannot reliably distinguish these tumors from urothelial carcinoma.

Relatively Restricted Migration of Polyclonal IgG4 May Mimic a Monoclonal Gammopathy in IgG4-Related Disease.
CONCLUSIONS: The focal band detected by electrophoresis in sera from patients with IgG4-RD can be confirmed as polyclonal by immunofixation or immunosubtraction. Because these bands may be predominately of one light chain isotype, they could be misinterpreted as monoclonal gammopathies.

CONCLUSIONS: CAIX can be a useful ancillary marker for identifying mesothelial cells. There is no difference in CAIX expression between benign and malignant mesothelium.

Utility of CD279/PD-1 Immunohistochemistry in the Evaluation of Benign and Neoplastic T-Cell-Rich Bone Marrow Infiltrates.
CONCLUSIONS: Although useful in assessing selected BM lymphoid infiltrates, CD279 expression may be limited in AITLs, is not specific for TFH lymphomas, and can be seen in benign lymphoid infiltrates, although without extensive strong positivity.

The medium, not the message: how tattoos correlate with early mortality.
CONCLUSIONS: Persons with tattoos appear to die earlier than those without. There may be an epiphenomenon between having tattoos and risk-taking behavior such as drug or alcohol use. A negative tattoo may suggest a predisposition to violent death but is eclipsed by the presence of any tattoo. PMID: 24926092 [PubMed - in process] (Source: American Journal of Clinical Pathology)
