Rosai-Dorfman Disease of the Breast With Variable IgG4+ Plasma Cells: A Diagnostic Mimicker of Other Malignant and Reactive Entities

Rosai-Dorfman disease (RDD) is an uncommon disorder, characterized by an atypical expansion of histiocytes which classically shows emperipolesis and immunoreactivity with S-100 protein. RDD affects the lymph nodes as well as extranodal sites; however, RDD of the breast is exceptionally rare. Herein, we describe the histopathologic features of 22 cases of RDD occurring in the breast, with an emphasis on the differential diagnosis. All cases were notable for an exuberant lymphocytic infiltrate with and without germinal center formation, and the majority (19/22) showed numerous plasma cells: 5 to 132/high-power field (HPF). IgG and IgG4 immunohistochemical stains were available for 13 cases; in no instance were criteria for IgG4-related sclerosing disease met, though in a single case the IgG4/IgG ratio was increased to 25%. Sclerosis was present in the majority of cases (18/22), and was frequently prominent. RDD cells showing emperipolesis were present in all cases (22/22), and ranged from rare (50/50 HPF). Two of the cases in our series were initially misdiagnosed as inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor and plasma cell mastitis with granulomatous inflammation. As emperipolesis can be indistinct, the presence of stromal fibrosis and a prominent lymphoplasmacytic inflammatory infiltrate should prompt a careful search for the characteristic histiocytes, which can be aided by the use of S-100 immunohistochemistry.

Abstract The aim of this study was to identify genes associated with chronic subclinical mastitis (SCM) in Norwegian Red (NR) cattle. Twelve SCM traits defined based on fixed threshold for test-day somatic cell count (SCC) were, together with lactation-average somatic cell score (LSCS) used for association and pathway enrichment analyses. A GWAS was performed on 3795 genotyped NR bulls with 777K SNP data and phenotypic information from 7 300 847 test-day SCC observations from 3 543 764 cows. At 5% chromosome-wide significance level 36 unique SNP were detected to be associated with one or more o...

This study highlights the role of CoNS as potential carriers of a wide range of environmental persistence factors. These include not only antibiotic resistance and biofilm production genes, but in some cases also biocide resistance genes, which could confer unspecific additional resistance mechanisms against a broad range of antimicrobials.

AbstractDairy farming is vulnerable to global warming and climate change. Improving and maintaining conception rates (CRs) have a paramount importance for the profitability of any dairy enterprise. There is an antagonistic relationship between fertility and milk yield, and intensive selection for milk yield has severely deteriorated reproductive efficiency. Irrespective of geography and husbandry, modern dairy cows experience heat stress (HS) effects leading to fertility declines, but it worsens in tropical climates. The threshold of HS experience among modern dairy cow has lowered, leading to decreased thermal comfort zon...
