Primary malignant melanoma of the esophagus (PMME) is a rare neoplasm. The primary nature of esophageal melanoma has been questioned in the past because most reported cases have not been able to demonstrate local tumorigenesis or evolution of the malignancy from a preceding benign lesion or cell. In addition, the ...

Context.--Papanicolaou tests with atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance (ASC-US) cytology and adjunct testing for high-risk human papillomaviruses (hr-HPV) are helpful in detecting high-grade disease. Detection of disease may be further improved with molecular markers known to be overexpressed in cervical carcinoma. ProEx C detects 2 such molecular markers, minichromosome ...
Sepulveda, Antonia - - 2008
Context.--Most types of gastritis can be diagnosed on hematoxylin-eosin stains. The most common type of chronic gastritis is Helicobacter pylori gastritis. Reactive or chemical gastropathy, which is often associated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug use or bile reflux, is common in most practices. The diagnosis of atrophic gastritis can be challenging ...

* Context.--Celiac sprue affects genetically susceptible individuals, who develop small intestinal injury and malabsorption following dietary exposure to gluten. The histologic features are nonspecific but characteristic.
Youens, Kenneth - - 2008
* Extranodal follicular dendritic cell sarcoma is a rare tumor of follicular dendritic cells that can occur in a wide variety of sites. Although fairly well characterized histologically, with a distinct immunophenotype, it remains underrecognized, with as many as one third of cases initially misdiagnosed. This is often due to ...
Giltnane, Jennifer - - 2008
* Context.--Selection for trastuzumab therapy depends on a companion diagnostic assessment of HER2 by either immunohistochemistry (IHC) for protein overexpression or fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) to detect gene amplification. Although many studies have compared IHC to FISH, few have compared the tests to the true gold standard, tumor response.
Sanchez, Amy - - 2008
* Context.--Primary esophageal melanoma (PEM) is a rare disease and is difficult to distinguish from other esophageal malignancies and from metastatic melanoma.
Lee, Sun - - 2008
* Context.--CpG island methylator phenotype (CIMP) designates a subset of colorectal cancers featuring concordant hypermethylation of multiple promoter CpG islands. Little is known about the clinical outcome or histologic characteristics of CIMP-positive colorectal cancers defined by recently identified CpG island methylator phenotype panels.

* Context.--Colorectal carcinoma is one of the most common types of cancer in Western countries and is consistently ranked among the top 3 causes of cancer-related deaths, with approximately 150 000 new cases in the United States and 55 000 deaths in 2006. The pathologist's assessment of tumor stage and ...

Muradyan, Artur - - 2008
The accumulation of chromosomal aberrations is a characteristic feature of tumor development. However, an understanding of tumorigenesis that assumes that changes in DNA copy number always cause equivalent changes in the corresponding RNA and protein levels is an oversimplification and completely ignores the individual genetic and epigenetic context in which ...
