Endometriosis-associated cancer

Climacteric. 2021 Jul 16:1-6. doi: 10.1080/13697137.2021.1948994. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTEndometriosis will affect about 10% of the female population and not only can it significantly impact adversely on quality of life and result in infertility, but data are accumulating that malignant transformation is an important consideration. Endometriosis can be histologically typical or atypical, ovarian, superficial peritoneal or deep infiltrating. The precursor for malignant transformation appears to be the ovarian atypical endometriosis component. Ovarian cancer is the most important associated cancer, primarily endometrioid and clear cell cancer. These are the only subtypes wherein a direct clonal relationship between endometriosis, as a direct precursor, and cancer has been made. There is no substantive evidence to support an altered association of borderline cancers of the ovary, serous ovarian cancers and breast, endometrial or cervical cancers. This review provides an overview of the prevailing data pertaining to the molecular and genetic aberrations that accompany the transformation of atypical endometriosis to malignancy and the accumulated epidemiologic evidence which supports the association.PMID:34269136 | DOI:10.1080/13697137.2021.1948994

This study reports the clinicopathologic features of 31 cases with a TP53 mutation involving nuclear localization, the largest study to date, emphasizing practical strategies for recognizing this uncommon variant and distinguishing it from the p53 wild-type pattern. The study also evaluates the prognostic significance of TP53 mutation involving nuclear localization in the ovarian high-grade serous carcinoma (HGSC) cohort of The Cancer Genome Atlas database. Most of the 31 tumors were advanced stage pelvic or endometrial HGSC. All TP53 mutations were predicted to result in loss of function. The p53 overexpression pattern wa...

Ovarian clear cell carcinoma (OCCC) and ovarian endometrioid carcinoma (OEC) are both associated with endometriosis but differ in histologic phenotype, biomarker profile, and survival. Our objectives were to refine immunohistochemical (IHC) panels that help distinguish the histotypes and reassess the prevalence of mismatch repair deficiency (MMRd) in immunohistochemically confirmed OCCC. We selected 8 candidate IHC markers to develop first-line and second-line panels in a training set of 344 OCCC/OEC cases. Interobserver reproducibility of histotype diagnosis was assessed in an independent testing cohort of 100 OCC/OEC ini...

Extraneural metastases of glioblastoma (GBM), although rare, are becoming an increasingly recognized occurrence. Currently, the biological mechanism underlying this rare occurrence is not understood. To explore the potential genomic drivers of extraneural metastasis in GBM, we present the molecular features of 4 extraneural metastatic GBMs, along with a comprehensive review and analysis of previously reported cases that had available molecular characterization. In addition to our 4 cases, 42 patients from 35 publications are reviewed. To compare the molecular profiles between GBM cases with extraneural metastasis and the g...

High-grade prostatic adenocarcinoma involving duct/acinar structures is labeled intraductal carcinoma of the prostate (IDCP). As numerous studies have shown that IDCP is associated with high stage disease with a significant negative impact on cancer-specific survival, accurate diagnosis is crucial to ensure appropriate patient management. The definition of IDCP recommended by 2016 World Health Organization (WHO) classification suggests that cases of IDCP with micropapillary or loose cribriform architecture without comedonecrosis should have cells with ≥6× nuclear enlargement. It is unclear how this size criterion ...

We report a novel NIPBL-NACC1 gene fusion in a rare primary hepatic neoplasm previously described as the “cholangioblastic variant of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma.” The 2 index cases were identified within our consultation files as morphologically distinctive primary hepatic neoplasms in a 24-year-old female and a 54-year-old male. The neoplasms each demonstrated varied architecture, including trabecular, organoid, microcystic/follicular, and infiltrative glandular patterns, and biphasic cytology with large, polygonal eosinophilic cells and smaller basophilic cells. The neoplasms had a distinctive immunoprof...

OBJECTIVES: To assess outcomes of cancer patients receiving kidney replacement therapy due to acute kidney injury in ICUs and compare these with other patient groups receiving kidney replacement therapy in ICUs. DESIGN: Retrospective registry analysis. SETTING: Prospectively collected database of 296,424 ICU patients. PATIENTS: Patients with and without solid cancer with acute kidney injury necessitating kidney replacement therapy were identified and compared with those without acute kidney injury necessitating kidney replacement therapy. INTERVENTIONS: Descriptive statistics were used to as...
