  • Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumor Is an Important Mimic of High-Grade
           Carcinoma in Colonic Biopsy Samples

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Hissong; Erika; Yantiss, Rhonda K.
      Abstract: imageDesmoplastic small round cell tumor (DSRCT) is a rare but aggressive malignancy that usually occurs within the intra-abdominal cavities of young adult males. Most DSRCTs can be reliably diagnosed based on the presence of characteristic morphology; coexpression of epithelial, myogenic, and neural markers; and detection of the reciprocal translocation t(11;22)(p13:21) associated with the EWS::WT1 fusion. However, occasional tumors lack classic features, affect older adults, or are located outside the abdominal cavity. Mucosal biopsy samples can pose challenges when both the stromal and epithelial components are not represented. Herein, we present a case of DSRCT that simulated clinical and histologic features of a colonic adenocarcinoma. Biopsy sampling revealed nests of cytokeratin-positive epithelioid cells that simulated a high-grade carcinoma with neuroendocrine features. This case report emphasizes the importance of considering this rare entity when presented with high-grade epithelioid tumors that occur in young patients.

           Diagnosis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Legesse; Teklu; Burke, Allen
      Abstract: imageWe report a case of chromophobe renal cell carcinoma (ChRCC) with extensive calcifications, which on biopsy was initially interpreted as a possible MiT translocation carcinoma, in part because of the young age of the patient. Upon resection, the tumor was typical for ChRCC. The tumor illustrates that calcifications may be prominent in ChRCC and that the most common tumors in young patients are sporadic and of the classic morphologic types.

  • Low-Grade Oncocytic Renal Tumor With Massive Liver Metastasis: Do Not
           Trust a Negative CK7 and Misdiagnose Oncocytoma: A Cautionary Tale and
           Current Classification of Oncocytic Renal Tumors

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Burke; Allen; Legesse, Teklu; Paulk, Adina
      Abstract: imageWe report a renal tumor originally diagnosed as oncocytoma that recurred with biopsy-proven multiple liver metastases. Review of the initial tumor revealed a predominantly CK7-negative neoplasm that had areas resembling oncocytoma, areas resembling eosinophilic chromophobe renal cell carcinoma, and areas with intermediate features. The case illustrates that the distinction between eosinophilic chromophobe renal cell carcinoma and “oncocytic tumor of uncertain malignant potential” is in some cases subjective. Criteria need better definition and should not be based on cytokeratin 7 staining pattern alone. A discussion of the current classification of oncocytic renal tumors is included, as well as a discussion of the differential diagnosis of renal neoplasms with eosinophilic cytoplasm.

  • When Blind Pathologists Lead Mute Clinicians: Autopsy of a Misdiagnosis
           Involving a Metastatic Lung Adenocarcinoma to the Breast Mimicking Primary
           Invasive Ductal Carcinoma

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Gama; Alcino; Novo, Jorge Eduardo
      Abstract: imageMetastatic cancers to the breast are rare and can be diagnostically challenging. We present the case of a 59-year-old woman, previously diagnosed with lung adenocarcinoma, who developed breast masses. Her medical history was not known to the pathologist, and the case was misdiagnosed as invasive ductal carcinoma of the breast. Following communication with the clinical team, ancillary tests were performed, and the report was amended to metastatic lung adenocarcinoma to the breast, highlighting the importance of specimen transfer of care and communication of key clinical data.

  • A Case of Benign Breast Inclusions in an Axillary Sentinel Lymph Node
           Mimicking a Low-Grade Carcinoma

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Rytych; Jennifer; LaBoy, Carissa
      Abstract: imageBenign inclusions in lymph nodes are a rare phenomenon that has been described throughout the body. These foci of nonneoplastic, ectopic tissue in the axillary lymph nodes can mimic low-grade metastatic breast carcinomas and result in a diagnosis of false-positive nodes that would lead to unnecessary treatment. We present a challenging case of a patient with a left breast grade 1 invasive ductal carcinoma undergoing an intraoperative axillary sentinel lymph node frozen-section consultation that contained numerous small tubules in the subcapsular space. The lymph node was interpreted as positive for carcinoma, and the patient underwent an axillary lymph node dissection. On permanent sections, myoepithelial cells and surrounding basement membranes were identified around some of the tubules, and a large, squamous inclusion cyst became visible. Immunohistochemical stains were performed that showed that p63 and smooth muscle myosin heavy chain highlighted myoepithelial cells around the tubules, whereas cytokeratin 5/6 and estrogen receptor stains showed a mosaic pattern of positivity. Combined, these findings supported a revised diagnosis of benign glandular and benign squamous inclusions. This case underscores the importance of thoroughly examining the location and histologic and cytologic features of a low-grade–appearing epithelium before determining lymph node positivity and, if it is unclear, deferring the diagnosis to permanent sections where immunohistochemical stains can be performed. Knowledge of this uncommon finding is important to avoid false-positive results, unnecessary treatments, and their associated comorbidities.

  • Pleomorphic Carcinoid: A Pitfall in Diagnosis on Small Biopsy Specimens

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Hardy; Naomi; Jacobs, Jonathan; Staats, Paul; Burke, Allen; Stashek, Kristen; Malone, Laura
      Abstract: imageTypical and atypical carcinoids account for 2% of all pulmonary neoplasms and are usually diagnosed based on characteristic neuroendocrine granules, architecture, and overall bland cytomorphology. However, there are rare carcinoids with unusual morphology mimicking features seen in non–small cell lung carcinoma, which can be a significant challenge on small biopsy or cytology specimens with major therapeutic implications. We report a case of a transbronchial needle aspirate that was initially misinterpreted as non–small cell lung carcinoma due to the presence of cohesive clusters of tumor cells showing striking pleomorphism and prominent nucleoli in a background of necrosis. In addition, tumor cells showed multifocal brown cytoplasmic melanin pigment that has rarely been reported in carcinoids. The diagnostic pitfalls of a pleomorphic carcinoid and the possible limitations of reaching this diagnosis on small biopsy specimens are discussed.

  • Wolves in Sheep's Clothing and Vice Versa: Fine-Needle Aspiration of
           Low-Grade Spindle Cell Lesions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Bronson; Taylor; Choy, Bonnie
      Abstract: imageThe morphologic overlap between low-grade spindle cell lesions can lead to diagnostic dilemmas, particularly when attempting to interpret limited material. Evaluation of such specimens frequently requires correlating with clinical and imaging findings, as well as ancillary studies. We discuss the case of a 78-year-old woman with a remote history of breast carcinoma who presented with a left base of neck nodule. While imaging findings were highly suggestive of schwannoma, fine-needle aspiration biopsy of the nodule was performed for diagnostic confirmation. The patient reported tingling and an electrical shock sensation traveling down her arm during the fine-needle aspiration procedure. Cytomorphologic findings demonstrating a low-grade spindle cell neoplasm further supported a diagnosis of schwannoma, despite early immunohistochemistry results not being supportive. A last-minute suggestion that the differential diagnosis be broadened prompted additional immunohistochemical workup and follow-up molecular testing that confirmed an alternative diagnosis of solitary fibrous tumor. This case demonstrates the importance of correlating clinical, radiologic, and pathologic findings when approaching the differential diagnosis of low-grade spindle cell lesions on fine-needle biopsy specimens. Ancillary testing including immunohistochemistry, molecular studies, or fluorescence in situ hybridization is frequently utilized to establish a definitive diagnosis.

  • High-Grade Ovarian Epithelial Tumor and Intraoperative Frozen Section:
           Consequences of a Discordant Diagnosis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Felicelli; Christopher; Blanco, Luis Z. Jr
      Abstract: imageOvarian neoplasms are a common specimen received for intraoperative consultation (frozen section) as an accurate diagnosis is necessary to determine the next steps in surgery. We present the case of a 79-year-old woman with a 5.3-cm right ovarian lesion as well as a large appendiceal mass. The frozen section of the ovarian lesion showed a high-grade tumor with areas of luminal necrosis. These morphologic findings, along with the presence of a colonic mass, led to an intraoperative consultation diagnosis of “high grade adenocarcinoma, favor metastasis from gastrointestinal tract primary,” and to the surgery ending after removal of the appendix and cecum. However, the permanent section revealed high-grade serous carcinoma. We review the differential diagnosis of high-grade ovarian lesions on frozen section, examine the challenges that can occur, and discuss the potential downstream effects and consequences for patient care.

  • Kikuchi Disease Masquerading as a T-Cell Lymphoma

      Authors: Aqil; Barina; Kaur, Amandeep
      Abstract: imageKikuchi-Fujimoto disease, also known as histiocytic necrotizing lymphadenitis, is most prevalent in Asia and has been increasingly recognized in other parts of the world. It usually occurs more frequently in females and presents as fever and localized cervical lymphadenopathy. It resolves spontaneously, usually over a period of several weeks up to 6 months. Its initial clinical features are commonly similar to that of a lymphoma, and it can be misdiagnosed both by clinicians and pathologists. Kikuchi disease has been associated with systemic lupus erythematosus. We report a case of Kikuchi disease that occurred in a 25-year-old female patient that masqueraded as a T-cell lymphoma.
