  • Calcifying Fibrous Tumor of the Mesentery: A Case Report and a Review of
           the Literature

    • Authors: Derqaoui Sabrine, Elouazzani Hafsa, Ratbi Amine, Bernoussi Zakia, Zouaidia Fouad
      Abstract: Clinical Pathology, Volume 13, Issue , January-December 2020.
      Background:Calcifying fibrous tumor (CFT) is a rare entity, with a distinctive histological presentation, initially reported as childhood fibrous tumor with psammoma bodies. It is a benign hypocellular fibrous neoplasm calcifications and lymphoplasmacytic infiltrate. The CFTs may involve many sites, including gastrointestinal tract, pleura, abdominal cavity, and neck. The diagnosis might be challenging due to histological overlaps with other mesenchymal tumors. The prognosis is good. We describe herein the case of a 53-year-old woman with an incidentally diagnosed CFT of the mesentery.Case presentation:A 53-year-old woman presented to the surgery department with a 2-year history of an anterior abdominal hernia. A computed tomographic scan of the abdomen failed to demonstrate any evidence of a mesenteric nodule. The patient underwent surgical treatment. Careful exploration during the excision of herniated sac revealed a solitary nodule of the mesentery. Local excision was performed. On gross, it was a well-demarcated nodule. Microscopically, the tumor consisted of an abundant paucicellular hyalinized collagen with calcifications; associated to a sparse mononuclear inflammatory infiltrate.Conclusions:Calcifying fibrous tumor is a benign lesion. The diagnosis is based on histology, because clinical and radiological features are nonspecific. Awareness of this entity is crucial to distinguish it from other mesenchymal tumors especially in the gastrointestinal tract.

  • Intraplacental Leiomyoma in a Case of Second-Trimester Intrauterine Fetal
           Demise

    • Authors: Selene C Koo, Fang Bu
      Abstract: Clinical Pathology, Volume 13, Issue , January-December 2020.
      Intraplacental leiomyomas are extremely rare and are generally incidental findings in term placentas. We present the first reported case of a placental leiomyoma associated with preterm intrauterine fetal demise, with histological findings providing the cause of adverse outcome. This was an intrauterine fetal demise detected at 26 weeks gestation with a placental finding of a 2.8-cm leiomyoma. Histological findings in the placenta and fetus were consistent with intrauterine fetal demise of weeks. The umbilical cord was markedly hypercoiled, with 6 twists per 10 cm. Features of maternal vascular malperfusion were evident in the placenta, including villous hypermaturity, an infarct adjacent to the leiomyoma, and retention of smooth muscle in spiral arterioles within the decidua overlying the leiomyoma. Implantation-site trophoblasts invaded into the leiomyoma and the overlying decidua. We hypothesize that incorporation of the leiomyoma into the placenta contributed to fetal demise due to disordered placental implantation, implying that these tumors may not be as benign and incidental as previously described. The finding of implantation-site changes in the leiomyoma may also suggest a potential cause for this rare tumor.

  • Precursor Lesions of Cholangiocarcinoma: A Clinicopathologic Review

    • Authors: Bita Geramizadeh
      Abstract: Clinical Pathology, Volume 13, Issue , January-December 2020.
      Cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) develops through multistep carcinogenesis. During the past decades, 2 precursors have been proved to evolve to CCA. The 2 main precursor lesions of CCA are biliary intraepithelial neoplasia and intraductal papillary neoplasm of the bile duct. It is an interesting and relatively novel entity for the hepatobiliary surgeons, radiologists, oncologists, and pathologists. It worth being familiar with these 2 entities for better communication between pathologists, oncologists, and surgeons to improve the treatment and follow-up of these lesions, which can definitely decrease their evolvement to CCA as an aggressive, poor prognostic, and life-threatening cancer. In this narrative review, I collected and discussed all published studies about these 2 precursor lesions of CCA including radiologic, clinical, and pathological manifestation.

  • Ossifying Lipoma in Costal Arches That Suggest Extensive Pulmonary
           Involvement: Case Report

    • Authors: Angélica Tobón, Nhora M Silva, Mauricio Velásquez, Eliana Morales, Saveria Sangiovanni, Liliana Fernández-Trujillo
      Abstract: Clinical Pathology, Volume 13, Issue , January-December 2020.
      Background:Lipomas are the most common benign soft tissue tumors in the general population. These lesions can appear on any part of the body and usually develop in the subcutaneous superficial tissue. Lipomas that show ossifying changes are very rare, representing less than 1% of the reported lipomas. They usually manifest as hard nodular lesions in the head and neck, the extremities, the sternoclavicular region, and the subcutaneous tissue in general; they are rare in the costal arches.Case presentation:We report the case of a patient with a history of multiple diseases and 2 tumor-like lesions with internal lytic areas detected in the fourth right costal arch and in the eighth left costal arc; we describe his clinical manifestations, radiological and laboratory findings as well as the pathological results and outcome.Conclusions:Ossifying lipomas are rare benign tumors with asymptomatic clinical presentation. It is important to perform an adequate radiological differentiation from other more aggressive lesions such as liposarcomas.

  • Optimizing Tissue Use: A Step-wise Approach to Diagnosing Squamous Cell
           Lung Carcinoma on Small Biopsies

    • Authors: Coral Olazagasti, Isabel Preeshagul, Mohamed Aziz, Nagashree Seetharamu
      Abstract: Clinical Pathology, Volume 13, Issue , January-December 2020.
      Background:Histologic subtyping of lung cancer has significant implications for treatment planning. Accurate diagnosis based on cytology/small biopsy specimens is challenging and frequently determined by morphology, as material is often not sufficient for immunohistochemical studies (IHC). We investigated the concordance between the rates of diagnosis from cytology/small biopsies compared with surgical specimens in patients with squamous cell lung cancer (SCC) and the utility of IHC for diagnostic precision in lung cancer subtyping.Methods:We conducted a 5-year retrospective analysis identifying cases of SCC diagnosed on cytology/small biopsies ± IHC and compared them with subsequent surgical specimens when available. The number of patients with SCC on surgical biopsy and the concordance between cytology ± IHC was determined.Results:Over the 5-year period (2011-2015), 231 cases were identified. Surgery was performed on 66 cases (28.5%), of which 87.9% concurred with cytological diagnosis (95% exact binomial confidence interval [CI] = 77.5%-94.6%). There were 36 cases diagnosed in 2014 and 2015 with IHC data. Of those cytology cases with IHC (n = 12), SCC was confirmed by surgery in 91.7% (95% CI = 61.5%-99.8%). Of those without IHC (n = 24), 95.8% were confirmed SCC by surgery (95% CI = 78.9%-99.9%). These rates were not different (Fisher exact test). All cases with IHC were morphologically squamous.Conclusions:Our data demonstrate that diagnostic precision of identifying SCC by cytology/small biopsy is comparable with or without additional IHC studies. We recommend judicious use of IHC on cytology specimens, reserving it for cases where cytomorphology is equivocal. Tissue should be preserved for molecular analysis, which may have therapeutic implications.

  • Immunohistochemical and Molecular Characterization of Endometrial Stromal
           Sarcomas

    • Authors: Sneha Subbaraya, Sudha S Murthy, Sandhya Devi G
      Abstract: Clinical Pathology, Volume 13, Issue , January-December 2020.
      Introduction:Endometrial stromal sarcomas (ESSs) are rare and characterized by translocations t(7;17)(p15;q11.2) and t(10;17)(q22;p13), resulting in JAZF1-SUZ12 and YWHAE-FAM22 gene fusions used for defining low-grade (LG-ESS) and high-grade (HG-ESS) tumours.Aim:The objective of the study was to characterize ESSs using immunohistochemical and molecular markers.Material and Methods:Patients diagnosed as having ESSs between January 2014 and December 2018 were included in the study. The slides were reviewed along with a panel of immunohistochemical markers, CD10, cyclin D1, oestrogen receptor (ER) and progesterone receptor (PR), Ki67, and vimentin and classified according to World Health Organization (2014) criteria into LG-ESS, HG-ESS, and undifferentiated uterine sarcoma (UUS). Molecular characterization was performed by fluorescence in situ hybridization using relevant probes.Results:Over a 4-year period, 552 cases of endometrial malignancies were reported, 10 of which were ESS (1.8%). Of these, 5 were LG-ESS, 3 HG-ESS, and 2 UUS. CD10 was 100% sensitive and 75% specific for LG-ESS. Oestrogen receptor and PR were 100% specific but less sensitive (80%) for LG-ESS. Forty per cent (2/5) of LG-ESS demonstrated JAZF1-SUZ12 gene rearrangement. All 3 cases of HG-ESS showed diffuse strong cyclin D1 (>70% nuclei) positivity and were negative for cluster differentiation 10, ER, and PR and demonstrated YWHAE gene rearrangement. None of the UUS cases demonstrated this gene rearrangement.Conclusion:Endometrial stromal sarcomas are rare tumours (1.8% in this study). JAZF1-SUZ12 and YWHAE-FAM22 gene rearrangement helps in accurate characterization of ESS and can be used as diagnostic tools especially when the diagnosis is unclear or difficult. Cyclin D1 can be used as an adjuvant immunomarker for YWHAE gene–rearranged HG-ESS.

  • Giant Intrathoracic Goiter of Atypical Presentation: A Case Report

    • Authors: María B. Iriarte, Eliana I. Morales, Mauricio Velásquez, Valeria Zúñiga, Luz F. Sua, Liliana Fernández-Trujillo
      Abstract: Clinical Pathology, Volume 13, Issue , January-December 2020.
      Background:The term goiter is used to describe any abnormal growth of the thyroid gland, which can be diffuse or nodular, and can be associated with normal, diminished, or increased thyroid function. Multinodular goiter is a common disease whose prevalence increases at age 50. Clinical manifestations can be due to thyroid function impairment or related to size and location of the gland with compressive symptoms. Intrathoracic location is less frequent, can be mistaken with pulmonary lesions and usually implies a difficult surgical approach.Case presentation:A 66-year-old woman with a history of subtotal thyroidectomy presented with 7-month dyspnea, dry cough. There was no evidence of neck masses, or jugular engorgement. Physical examination was normal. Chest x-ray showed an 11 cm mass in the upper right hemithorax. Computed tomography (CT)-scan, showed calcifications, and compression of the superior vena cava without infiltration, the right subclavian vein and left displacement of the trachea. Distinction between intrapulmonary or mediastinal location was not clear. Biopsy showed thyroid origin, and bilateral thoracotomy was performed with confirmation of a giant multinodular goiter.Conclusions:Intrathoracic goiter should undergo surgical or ablative management if compressive symptoms of the airway and cervical or thoracic vessels are present. The large size of the tumor along with the presentation after thyroidectomy and the seeming location in the right upper lobe made this particular case striking. Specially in the elderly, multidisciplinary perioperative management is key for a successful recovery.

  • An Inflammatory Myofibroblastic Tumor of the Appendix Mimicking an
           Appendicular Malignant Lesion

    • Authors: Mauricio Gonzalez-Urquijo, Andrea Romero-Davila, Samuel Eugene Kettenhofen, Rogelio Gonzalez-Ramirez, Gerardo Gil-Galindo
      Abstract: Clinical Pathology, Volume 13, Issue , January-December 2020.
      Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is a very rare lesion of unknown etiology. Cases of IMT involving the appendix are exceptional, and they can mimic malignant appendicular tumors. We present a case of a 65-year-old man who presented to our emergency room on septic shock and acute abdomen secondary to visceral perforation. The patient underwent exploratory laparotomy; massive bowel dilatation was encountered, along with 3 L of purulent intraperitoneal fluid and a perforated appendicular mass of 6 cm. An appendicectomy was performed. Histopathologic examination established the diagnosis of inflammatory pseudotumor with appendiceal perforation. This study constitutes the 14th confirmed case report of an appendicular IMT. It is important to include IMT in differential diagnoses of appendicular masses to avoid excessive resections.

  • Interobserver Variability in the Diagnosis of High-Grade Prostatic
           Intraepithelial Neoplasia in a Tertiary Hospital in Northern Jordan

    • Authors: Najla Aldaoud, Amer Hallak, Nour Abdo, Samir Al Bashir, Noor Marji, Ashley Graboski-Bauer
      Abstract: Clinical Pathology, Volume 13, Issue , January-December 2020.
      Prostate intraepithelial neoplasia is described as a precursor lesion to prostatic adenocarcinoma. High-grade prostate intraepithelial neoplasia (HGPIN) is classified as both grade 2 and 3 prostate intraepithelial neoplasia due to inconsistency between pathologists’ findings. In our study, we assessed the interobserver variability in the diagnosis of HGPIN among genitourinary and nongenitourinary pathologists. All cases with prostate adenocarcinoma diagnosis on needle core biopsy, radical prostatectomy, and transurethral resection of prostate (TURP) between the years 2005 and 2014 were included. In total, 191 prostate cancer cases were included: 109 needle core biopsies, 45 radical prostatectomies, and 37 TURP. All were independently reviewed by 2 urologic pathologists for the presence of HGPIN. High-grade prostate intraepithelial neoplasia was diagnosed in 65 cases (34%), among which the lesion was recognized by the reporting pathologists in 36 (55%) of the cases and was missed in 29 (45%) of the cases with a κ coefficient of 0.53. There was a moderate interobserver agreement in the diagnosis of HGPIN. Consultation with genitourinary pathologist can improve HGPIN diagnosis.

  • Formalin Versus Bouin Solution for Testis Biopsies: Which Is the Better
           Fixative'

    • Authors: James L Ellenburg, Peter Kolettis, Joseph C Drwiega, Anna M Posey, Matthew Goldberg, Mitra Mehrad, Giovanna Giannico, Jennifer Gordetsky
      Abstract: Clinical Pathology, Volume 13, Issue , January-December 2020.
      Purpose:Some resources recommended Bouin solution for the fixation of testis biopsy specimens. We compared the histologic quality of rat testicular tissue using buffered formalin and Bouin solution as fixatives.Methods:We prospectively compared the histologic quality of rat testicular tissue fixed in Bouin solution versus formalin. Testicular tissue was harvested post-mortem from six rats. Each testis was removed and sectioned in half; one half was fixed in formalin and one half in Bouin solution. Testicular tissue histology (nuclear membrane detail, nuclear granularity, cytoplasmic granularity, cytoplasmic membrane detail, and basement membrane detail) was graded as high quality (2) or low quality (1). Sloughing of cells into the lumens of the seminiferous tubules was graded on a 0-3 scale (0=none, 1=mild, 2=moderate, 3=extensive).Results:All slides regardless of fixative were of appropriate quality for the histologic evaluation of spermatogenesis. The average sloughing score for formalin cases was 1.4 and for Bouin cases 1.6. Formalin fixed tissue was found to have high quality nuclear membrane detail (2), nuclear granularity (1.9), and basement membrane detail (2). Cytoplasmic granularity was of lesser but adequate quality (1.4). Cytoplasmic membrane detail was poor, (1). Tissue fixed with Bouin solution had high quality basement membrane detail (2) and adequate cytoplasmic granularity (1.5), nuclear membrane detail (1.3) and nuclear granularity (1.4). Cytoplasmic membrane detail was poor (1).Conclusion:Compared to Bouin solution, formalin fixation of rat testicular tissue produced adequate histology for the evaluation of spermatogenesis and may be superior to Bouin solution for certain cytologic features.
