Intraductal Carcinoma of Salivary Gland Originating from an Intraparotid Lymph Node: A Case Report.

We present the second case of IDC originating from an intraparotid lymph node (LN) with a more detailed description of the histogenesis, immunohistochemistry (IHC) and updated molecular information. CASE REPORT: An 87-year-old male had a tumour nodule over the left parotid tail for about 20 years. Physical examinations revealed a 4.5 cm soft, non-tender and fixed mass. After the left parotidectomy, pathology confirmed the diagnosis of IDC arising within an intraparotid lymph node. The cystic component of the tumour was lined by single to multilayered ductal cells with micropapillary growth pattern. The solid part showed intraductal proliferation of neoplastic cells in solid, cribriform, micropapillary and Roman bridge-like structure. By immunohistochemistry (IHC), the tumour cells were positive for S-100, CK (AE1/AE3), mammaglobin, SOX10, and estrogen receptor (ER), with myoepithelial cell rimming highlighted by positive p63 and calponin IHC stains. The prognosis of this patient is excellent after complete excision. DISCUSSION: The mechanism of salivary gland tumour arising in the intra-parotid gland LN was assumed to be related to salivary duct inclusion within the intraparotid gland LN which is a normal occurrence during embryology development. Although the terminology may raise some confusion about the relationship between IDC and conventional salivary duct carcinoma (SDA), they are different in immunophenotype and clinicopathologic features. IDC is characterised b...

ConclusionsResected gastric carcinoma with IMPC was associated with poorer DFS and DSS; furthermore, an increased rate of lymphatic invasion and liver metastasis was noted than in cases without IMPC.

Abstract CONTEXT: Yearly incidence of thyroid cancer has nearly tripled in the past four decades, due to improvements in and better use of diagnostic procedures, enabling detection of smaller tumors, and notably micropapillary carcinoma (MPC: ≤10 mm). OBJECTIVES: The aim of our study was to confirm increasing incidence, to describe the characteristics and circumstances of discovery, and to examine the reasons for this rise in incidence of MPCs, based on the French Marne-Ardennes registry for 1975-2014. DESIGN: This was a retrospective observational cohort study. RESULTS: Two thousand six hun...

We examined clinical outcomes during mean follow-up periods of 824 ± 452 days for the TL group and 753 ± 520 days for the MWA group. Results: Postprocedural follow-up revealed that, in the MWA group, the tumors had completely disappeared in 34 patients, and the remainder were reduced to necrotic or carbonized tissue. The incidence of transient hypoparathyroidism was significantly lower in the MWA group than in the TL group (p

AbstractEndocervical adenocarcinomas (ECAs) are currently classified according to the 2014 World Health Organization (WHO) system, which is predominantly based on descriptive morphologic characteristics, considers factors bearing minimal etiological, clinical, or therapeutic relevance, and lacks sufficient reproducibility. The 2017 International Endocervical Adenocarcinoma Criteria and Classification (IECC) system was developed by a group of international collaborators to address these limitations. The IECC system separates ECAs into two major groups —those that are human papillomavirus-associated (HPVA) and those th...

Tumor spread through air spaces (STAS) as a new pathological invasion mode is closely related to many clinicopathological factors. In lung adenocarcinoma, micropapillary and solid pathological subtypes are most related; STAS for early stage lung adenocarcinoma, surgical type of lobectomy seems to benefit better than sublobar resection, which may up-regulate the pathological stage of early lung cancer; Moreover, STAS is closely related to squamous cell carcinoma and other non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). In addition, intraoperative frozen-section pathological detection of STAS is difficult and controversial. STAS as an i...

We reported here that plakoglobin, as a key component in cell adhesion, can promote collective metastasis through facilitating IMPC clusters formation. In comparing the clinicopathological features of 451 IMPC patients and 282 IDC-NST patients, our results showed that tumor emboli were significantly higher in IMPC patients and were associated with a high frequency of metastasis. Both in vitro and in vivo data showed overexpression of plakoglobin in both the cell membrane and the cytoplasm of IMPC clusters. When plakoglobin was knocked down in IMPC cell models, the tumor cell clusters were depolymerized. Using mouse models,...

DISCUSSION: Prevalence of cancer on a background of hyperthyroidism has gradually increased in recent years. It is not realistic to determine thyroid cancer prevalence only based on autopsy examinations. This rate significantly increases in the presence of nodule in clinical studies. Most of the carcinomas are microcarcinomas that do not have lymphovascular invasion and have very low lymph node metastasis. Thus, their treatment is still under debate.

This study reports the clinicopathologic features and outcomes of cervical adenocarcinomas with a micropapillary component (micropapillary cervical adenocarcinomas); this represents the largest reported study of these neoplasms. The study comprised 44 cervical adenocarcinomas of usual (human papillomavirus–related)-type (84%), mucinous, not otherwise specified (4.5%), gastric-type (4.5%), endometrioid (4.5%), and adenosquamous carcinoma (2%). The micropapillary component comprised>50% of the neoplasm in 34 cases (77%) (group 1), and 10% to 50% in 10 cases (23%) (group 2). Lymph node metastasis was present in 41 of...
