  • Grossing Breast Cancer Specimens: A Comprehensive Review
    • Authors: Agarwal; Apeksha N.; Ritter, Jacob; Dornbluth, Nella C.; Mais, Daniel D.; Nazarullah, Alia N.
      Abstract: imageGrossing breast specimens presents a unique challenge in the anatomic pathology laboratory, because the approach varies with the type of specimen received, the preoperative diagnosis, and the administration of neoadjuvant therapy. Furthermore, careful attention to preanalytic variables, such as time of fixation, is required. The specimen often lacks orienting anatomic landmarks, and accurately documenting margins in 3 dimensions requires a deliberate approach that is easily understood for future reference. This article will provide a comprehensive source for grossing commonly received breast specimens, ranging from surgical biopsies to modified radical mastectomies and will describe the proper care of preanalytical measures to avoid compromise of biomarkers, methods to ensure adequate sampling of tissue for diagnosis, and assessment of tumor burden following neoadjuvant treatment.

  • Go Gross or Go Home: The Importance of Gross Examination in Lung Cancer
           Staging and Diagnosis of Nonneoplastic Diseases
    • Authors: Huang; Tao; Hughes, Kenneth T.; Myers, Jeffrey L.
      Abstract: imageGross examination is fundamental to the practice of surgical pathology. Accurate diagnosis can often be made based on the classic gross appearance of a lung lesion. On the other hand, inaccurate diagnosis or wrong tumor staging is unavoidable if lesions are missed, unrecognized, or inadequately sampled. Different grossing techniques should be used for grossing neoplastic and nonneoplastic lung specimens.

  • The Head and Neck Oncology Specimen: The Gross Examination as an Essential
           Component to Diagnosis and Optimal Patient Outcomes
    • Authors: Laklouk; Israa; Sadow, Peter M.
      Abstract: imageAchieving complete resection in head and neck oncologic cancer surgeries without leaving behind residual disease is the most significant factor to minimize the risk of locoregional recurrence and overall survival. Approaches regarding how to handle en bloc specimens for margin assessment also impact patients' long-term outcomes. Although sampling the tumor bed to evaluate for residual tumor at surgical margins (excision edges) is the most commonly practiced technique, some studies have shown that separately submitted tumor bed margins have lower sensitivity for tumor assessment compared with detection of those positive margins from direct sampling of the en bloc specimen. Close collaboration between the surgeon and pathologist is fundamental to optimize surgical margin assessment and reporting. Current American Joint Committee on Cancer (eighth edition) and National Comprehensive Cancer Network guidelines recommend the en bloc specimen sampling for intraoperative assessment of surgical margins. Cutoffs less than 5 mm between tumor and the surgical margin had been considered adequate in specific subsites in head and neck region. Emerging in situ imaging modalities and molecular testing may help to reduce inadequate surgical margins during tumor resections; however, further studies and validation are needed. This article presents a review of recent publications and guidelines of general grossing principles and recent updates to optimize cancer-free surgical margins and to emphasize the limitation issues encountered in routine practice.

  • Pancreatoduodenectomy: Perspectives on a Standardized Grossing Protocol
           for the Practicing Pathologist
    • Authors: Williams; Margaret; Affolter, Kajsa
      Abstract: imageThe pancreatoduodenectomy or Whipple procedure is a complex oncologic surgical specimen with 2 dominant yet opposing standardized grossing protocols reported in the literature, the Leeds Pathology Protocol (LP) and the bivalving technique. The LP recommends the axial slicing of the pancreatic head perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the duodenum, whereas the bivalving technique suggests sampling margins separately followed by bisecting the pancreas along the pancreatic and biliary ductal systems. An assessment can then be performed to determine which plane best serves to examine a particular tumor. This review provides a standardized grossing procedure in sufficient stepwise detail to be replicated by the practicing pathologist and is accompanied by an overview of the literature assessing strengths and limitations of both the LP and the bivalving technique. Factors that influence grossing method are discussed with diagnosis, stage, and margin status evaluated in additional detail, given their significant impact on treatment and prognosis. Consideration is given to adenocarcinoma diagnoses being dictated by the often difficult-to-determine tumor epicenter, the American Joint Commission on Cancer having recently changed their staging criteria in the eighth edition to be far more reliant on size and require enumerating lymph nodes, and the definition of a positive margin remaining controversial. An appreciation for the evidence or lack thereof allows an informed prosector to select a particular standardized method as determined by the unique characteristics of each individual tumor, which can best serve the clinician and patient.

  • Grossing Issues in Ovarian and Fallopian Tube Pathology
    • Authors: Kulumani Mahadevan; Lakshmi Shree; Park, Byoung Uk; Yeh, I-Tien
      Abstract: imageOvaries and fallopian tubes are often removed for treatment of various benign and malignant gynecological conditions including prophylactic resections in high-risk patients. Meticulous grossing techniques are essential for staging, prognostication, and accurate diagnosis. We conducted a comprehensive review of published literature on methods for grossing pelvic adnexal specimens, including standard textbooks and grossing manuals, supplemented by a limited review of grossing protocols from academic institutions. This review addresses common issues encountered during the grossing of ovarian and fallopian tube specimens.

  • Lights, Camera, CANCER: Principles of Macroscropic (Gross) Photography for
           Pathology Specimens
    • Authors: Song; Linda H.
      Abstract: imageGross photography is used both as a teaching tool for future health care workers and as a tool in a pathologist's diagnostic arsenal. Whereas gross descriptions can often be subjective and nonstandardized (and sometimes too convoluted in complex cases), photographs can play a final role in documentation. Where words might kindle an abstract imagination of a disease process, a photograph can capture both attention and understanding. There are 4 critical principles of good gross photography: (1) background surface, (2) photograph composition, (3) lighting, and (4) extra photography tools. As gross photography plays a pivotal role in both diagnosis and teaching, it is imperative to give pathologists, pathologists in training, and pathology assistants the skills and tools to execute the perfect gross photograph.

    • Authors: Maskoliunaite; Vygante; Jakubauskas, Matas; Garnelyte, Aušra; Jotautas, Valdemaras; Stankeviciene, Jolanta; Strupas, Kestutis; Mickys, Ugnius
      Abstract: imagePerivascular epithelioid cell tumor (PEComa) is a rare entity, characterized as a mesenchymal tumor with coexpression of melanocytic and smooth muscle markers. The involvement of the gastrointestinal tract is described in up to 100 cases in the English literature. Rectal PEComas are even more uncommon, with only 10 previously described cases. We present the case of a 62-year-old man with rectal PEComa with some unusual features, such as gastrointestinal stromal tumor–like CD117 positivity and HMB45 (human melanoma black-45)–positive multinucleated giant tumor cells. After 12 months' follow-up, the patient is alive with no radiologic, endoscopic, or histologic evidence of disease recurrence.

  • A Rare Case of Invasive Gastric Mucormycosis in a Patient With Diffuse
           Large B Cell Lymphoma
    • Authors: Spiewak; Ted Andrew; Eskandari, Armen; Gui, Dorina; Cogdill, Asha Gupta
      Abstract: imageMucormycosis is a rare but life-threatening opportunistic fungal infection, associated with high mortality in immunocompromised individuals. Gastrointestinal mucormycosis is uncommon compared with more frequently seen rhinocerebral and pulmonary forms. We report a case of invasive gastric mucormycosis in an 88-year-old man with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, who presented with complaints of fever, coffee-ground emesis, and abdominal pain. On admission, he was hemodynamically unstable, severely malnourished, and somnolent. Abdominal tenderness was present in addition to neutropenia and severe anemia, requiring numerous transfusions. Endoscopy was performed showing multiple necrotic ulcers within the stomach. Histopathology revealed tissue-invasive mucormycosis. This patient was too ill for treatment and was discharged with hospice. Cases of invasive mucormycosis associated with hematological malignancy have been on the rise. Gastrointestinal infection is uncommon, which typically presents nonspecifically and can lead to devastating complications. Although this patient was too ill to undergo antifungal therapy and aggressive surgical debridement, early recognition, especially in high-risk patients, is imperative for improving overall prognosis.

  • Juxtaglomerular Cell Tumor of Kidney in Pregnancy: A Rare Case Report
    • Authors: Gadgil; Nitin Maheshvar; Padmanabhan, Anitha; Acharya, Prapti
      Abstract: imageJuxtaglomerular cell tumor is a rare renal neoplasm with fewer than 100 cases reported in literature, of which 7 cases were diagnosed during pregnancy. This tumor is generally seen in young adults with female preponderance. Patients generally present with hypertension, hyperaldosteronism, and hypokalemia secondary to renin secretion by the tumor cells. When the tumor occurs during pregnancy, the hypertension is often presumed to be pregnancy-induced hypertension and results in fetal loss. We report the case of a 21-year-old woman who presented with hypertension in the first trimester of pregnancy, which was attributed to and treated as pregnancy-induced hypertension. Routine ultrasonography of abdomen in the fourth month revealed a right renal mass. Patient underwent preterm delivery in the seventh month, and the infant did not survive, and subsequently after 1 month, a partial nephrectomy was performed. The diagnosis of juxtaglomerular cell tumor was confirmed by light microscopy. The tumor was positive for CD34 and vimentin. Electron microscopy showed the characteristic rhomboid renin granules in the cytoplasm of the tumor cells.

  • Pulmonary Embolus of Benign Liver Tissue Following Partial Hepatectomy
    • Authors: Lucas; Calixto-Hope G.; Kratz, Johannes R.; Urisman, Anatoly
      Abstract: imageWe report the case of a 55-year-old man with metastatic well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumor involving the liver and lung. He underwent a left hepatectomy to resect a large mass in the liver followed by a right lung lower lobectomy 4 months later to resect a smaller mass in the lung. The histologic evaluation of the lung specimen revealed a 0.1-cm nodule of ectopic benign liver tissue within a lumen of a small pulmonary artery. Histochemical and immunohistochemical stains were consistent with benign liver and did not provide support for metastatic well-differentiated hepatocellular carcinoma. To our knowledge, this is the first documented case of pulmonary arterial embolization by benign liver tissue as a complication of hepatectomy.

  • A Case Report of Capecitabine-Associated Bowel Inflammation With a Novel
           Mutation of the DPYD Gene
    • Authors: Schlager; Lukas; Wöran, Katharina; Luhn, Helena; Stift, Anton; Harpain, Felix
      Abstract: imageCapecitabine is a fluoropyrimidine used in chemotherapeutic regiments in patients with colorectal cancer. Diarrhea and hand-foot syndrome are common adverse effects of capecitabine treatment in patients with colorectal cancer,1,2 whereas steatohepatitis is rather uncommon. In this case report, we present the case of a patient with colon cancer receiving adjuvant capecitabine treatment and suffering from severe therapy-refractory diarrhea, hand-foot syndrome, and steatosis hepatis caused by a novel mutation of the DPYD gene and a swelling of the bowel, which presented as an unusually early relapse tumor.
