Intraductal papillary growth of neoplastic biliary epithelia with a fine fibrovascular stalk (intraductal papillary neoplasia of liver [IPN-L]) resembling intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm of pancreas is occasionally associated with hepatolithiasis. In this study, 136 cases of hepatolithiasis in Taiwan, between January 1998 and March 2000, and an additional 21 cases ...

Ameloblastic carcinoma is a rare odontogenic malignant tumour and has been a subject of great debate in literature. It does challenge the diagnostic acumen of pathologists, as this lesion needs to be detected at an early stage for adequate therapy. We present a case of the same with literature review.

The proportion of Epstein-Barr virus-associated gastric carcinoma (EBV-GC) was examined in 149 Japanese-Brazilian and 151 non-Japanese-Brazilian gastric-carcinoma cases using in situ hybridization (ISH) assay to detect EBV-encoded small RNA (EBER), and the results were compared with our referent Japanese data. We found that 4.7% of cases in Japanese Brazilians were ...

Basal cell carcinomas (BCC) are the most common cutaneous malignant neoplasms affecting fair-skinned human beings. They may progressively enlarge and spread by peripheral extension. Intracranial invasion is very rare. A case of a giant BCC of the scalp invading directly into the left hemisphere through the frontal and parietal lobe ...

Keratoacanthoma is a unique clinicopathological entity, despite a recent trend to regard it as a variant of squamous cell carcinoma. The occurrence of perineural invasion is an uncommon phenomenon in keratoacanthomas, with a predilection for lesions on the face. We studied a series of 40 cases of keratoacanthoma in which ...

RCAS1 has been reported as a tumor-associated antigen in uterine and ovarian carcinomas. In vitro studies on RCAS1 indicated that it might function as an apoptosis-inducing factor since binding between RCAS1 and its receptor induced apoptosis in receptor-expressing cells. In this study, 68 surgically resected samples of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) ...

Endometrial glassy cell carcinoma (GCC) is a rare neoplasm, with 11 cases reported in the literature. Although GCC is considered to be a poorly differentiated variant of adenosquamous carcinoma, its real nature is still debatable. We report a case of GCC of the endometrium in a 60-year-old woman and review ...

Two cases of solid papillary carcinoma of the breast were pathologically studied. Subjects included two female patients: a 76-year-old (Case 1) and a 43-year-old (Case 2). Both cases showed solid and papillary proliferation of spindle cells in expanded ducts, perivascular pseudorosettes, eosinophilic fine granules in an abundant cytoplasm, intracellular mucin ...

Fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) is considered highly specific for the diagnosis of papillary carcinoma of the thyroid (PCT). In recent years, several variants of PCT have been described. An attempt was made to gauge the accuracy of classification of variants of PCT on aspirates. Cytology smears from 124 of 150 ...

Primary central mucoepidermoid carcinoma (CMC) of the jaws accounts only for 2-3% of all mucoepidermoid carcinomas reported. Bhaskar in 1963 first analysed the criteria for his central origin, histology and pathogenesis. The authors report a long-term evolution case of CMC of the mandible with peculiar clinical features observed at the ...

Pituitary carcinomas, currently defined as primary adenohypophyseal neoplasms with evidence of either brain invasion or metastatic spread, are exceptionally rare. A case of corticotroph pituitary carcinoma is reported. A 17-year-old female first presented with an invasive and clinically non-functioning pituitary macroadenoma. The primary pituitary lesion lacked atypical histological features and ...

Spindle cell carcinoma is a rare tumor that generally occurs in the upper digestive tract. We report an 81-year-old man with spindle cell carcinoma located in the extrahepatic bile ducts, resulting in obstructive jaundice. The patient died 10 months after operation due to local recurrence. The literature on this rare ...

The occurrence of primary hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in patients with genetic haemochromatosis (GH) with cirrhosis is well known. In the past it has been suggested that patients with GH without cirrhosis have the same risk of HCC and life expectancy as the general population. However, recently there have been cases ...

Most nonendocrine pancreatic neoplasms are adenocarcinomas of ductal cell or acinar origin. Primary carcinomas of the pancreas with squamous differentiation are rare enough to warrant a search for other primary tumors. In the past few decades, well-documented individual reports and large series reviews support the view that these squamous neoplasms ...

We report two cases of sebaceous carcinoma arising on actinic keratosis. The first patient, a 75-year-old female, had a granuloma pyogenicum-like tumor on her left temple, and the second patient, an 81-year-old female, developed a tumor with erythema on her left cheek. In both cases, histopathological examination revealed findings typical ...

Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) is a relatively common malignant neoplasm which occurs in the head and neck region, particularly in the salivary glands. It is a slow growing, locally aggressive neoplasm with a unique feature of perineural spread. Intracranial extension can occur by direct extension, hematogenous metastases or by perineural ...

BACKGROUND: Although Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) exhibits specific clinical and histologic features, differentiation from other cutaneous neoplasms, such as lymphoma, metastatic oat cell carcinoma and malignant melanoma (MM), may sometimes be difficult. OBJECTIVE: The aim of our study was to immunohistochemically differentiate MCC from MM. METHODS: Paraffin sections from 6 ...

The risk of carcinogenesis from radiation exposure is well known. It has been questioned for some time therefore, whether it is wise to treat benign disease with radiotherapy. We report a case of a patient who developed bilateral breast carcinomas almost 30 years after treatment of chest wall keloids with ...

In general, surgical resection for metastatic colorectal adenocarcinoma rarely benefits more than a small percentage of patients long term. In the case of isolated splenic metastasis without evidence of other metastatic disease, splenectomy may increase survival times in patients with previously resected colorectal adenocarcinoma. Currently there are only five case ...

Primary adenosquamous carcinomas of the intestine are rare tumors, particularly those occurring in the small bowel. We report the third case of an adenosquamous carcinoma of the ileum in a 55-year-old-man. Histologically, the tumor consisted of malignant glandular and squamous elements. A review of the literature is presented.
