Metastatic Mandibular –Prostate Adenocarcinoma as the First Sign of an Advanced Stage Malignant Disease
Prostate cancer, a neoplasm that commonly causes bony metastases, rarely involves the jaw. An 80-year-old man presented with complaints of pain and paresthesia on the right side of the mandible for 3 months. Anamnesis revealed systemic hypertension and prostatic hyperplasia. Clinical examination revealed a symptomatic nodule involving the right mandibular posterior region. Panoramic radiography and computed tomography analysis showed periosteal reaction at the inferior border of the right mandible.

CONCLUSIONS: This study suggests that MTC is a more immunologically active tumor that has been previously reported. Patients with advanced MTC should be screened for targetable antigens and immune checkpoints to determine their eligibility for current clinical trials. Additional studies are necessary to fully characterize the antigenic potential of MTC and may encourage the development of adoptive T cells therapies for this rare tumor.

I'm a current fellow scheduled to graduate in July. After that, I'm joining a private practice located>1000 miles away from where I'm training. Until the pandemic hit, the plan was to fly out there next month to start looking for housing. In addition to the inherent risk of travel right now, my hospital just implemented a policy that if you leave the state you have to self-quarantine for 2 weeks (and they count that as vacation time). Not sure what I'm going to do to find housing in time... Finding housing during pandemic

Dr. Matija Snuderl, neuropathologist and molecular pathologist at New York University Langone Health, was featured ina recent article appearing inNature (March 26, 2020, Vol 579, p S14-S16). The article, which addresses the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in cancer diagnostics, opens with Dr. Snuderl experiencing a moment that many of us neuropathologists have had wherein we hesitate before signing out a case because of a feeling that something might be just a bit different about a particular specimen. That feeling prompts us to do something else (run more ancillary testing, get a consult, sleep on it and ta...
