Systemic P-Anca Vasculitis With Fatal Outcome, Arising In The Setting Of Methimazole Use., S. Hacking, N. N. Uppal, N. Khan, M. Ionescu, V. Bijol

Journal Articles

Here we report a fatal case of antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-associated vasculitis (AAV) due to methimazole use in a 64-year-old woman. She was initially hospitalized for abdominal pain and possible colitis, and subsequently developed hematuria, renal failure, and hemoptysis. The serologic work-up revealed positive antinuclear antibody (ANA) and perinuclear-antineutrophilic cytoplasm antibodies (p-ANCA), with positive antimyeloperoxidase. Three weeks following admission, the patient was found to be pulseless, and expired. At autopsy, microscopic review included widespread transmural necrotizing vasculitis and crescentic glomerulonephritis in the kidney, and diffuse pulmonary alveolar hemorrhage; focal coronary artery intimal vasculitis and necrotizing pericarditis were also noted ...

Journal Articles

Background:Recent studies show various cytomorphologic features that can assist in the differentiation of classic papillary thyroid carcinoma (cPTC) from noninvasive follicular thyroid neoplasm with papillary-like nuclear features (NIFTP). Differentiating these two entities changes the clinical management significantly. We evaluated the performance of support vector machine (SVM), a machine learning algorithm, in differentiating cases of NIFTP and encapsulated follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma with no capsular or lymphovascular invasion (EFVPTC) from cases of cPTC with the use of microscopic descriptions. SVM is a supervised learning algorithm used in classification problems. It assigns the input data to one of two ...

Overexpression Of Β1 Integrin Contributes To Polarity Reversal And A Poor Prognosis Of Breast Invasive Micropapillary Carcinoma, B. Liu, X. Zheng, F. Meng, Y. Han, Y. Song, F. Liu, S. Li, L. Zhang, X. Zhang, L. Fu, +1 Additional Author

Journal Articles

© Liu et al. Invasive micropapillary carcinoma (IMPC) of the breast is a highly aggressive breast cancer. Polarity reversal exemplified by cluster growth is hypothesized to contribute to the invasiveness and metastasis of IMPC. In this study, we demonstrate that levels of β1 integrin and Rac1 expression were greater in breast IMPC than in invasive breast carcinoma of no specific type and paraneoplastic benign breast tissue. We show that silencing β1 integrin expression using the β1 integrin inhibitor AIIB2 partially restored polarity in IMPC primary cell clusters and downregulated Rac1. Thus, overexpression of β1 integrin upregulates Rac1. Univariate analysis showed that ...

Journal Articles

© 2018, Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature. Background/purpose: Tumor heterogeneity is a now well-recognized phenomenon that can affect the classification, prognosis and treatment of human cancers. Heterogeneity is often described in primary breast cancers based upon histologic subtypes, hormone- and HER2-receptor status, and immunolabeling for various markers, which can be seen within a single tumor as mixed cellular populations, or as separate discrete foci. Experimental design/methods: Here, we present a case report of a patient’s primary breast cancer that had two separate but adjacent histologic components, one that was estrogen receptor (ER) positive, and ...

INTRODUCTION: Multiple scoring systems have been proposed for prostate MRI reporting. We sought to review the clinical impact of the new Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System v2 (PI-RADS) and compare those results to our proposed Simplified Qualitative System (SQS) score with respect to detection of prostate cancers and clinically significant prostate cancers. METHODS: All patients who underwent multiparametric prostate MRI (mpMRI) had their images interpreted using PI-RADS v1 and SQS score. PI-RADS v2 was calculated from prospectively collected data points. Patients with positive mpMRIs were then referred by their urologists for enrollment in an IRB-approved prospective phase III trial ...

"The Great Mimicker": An Unusual Etiology Of Cytopenia, Diffuse Lymphadenopathy, And Massive Splenomegaly, M. Zaarour, C. Weerasinghe, E. Moussaly, S. Hussein, J. P. Atallah

Journal Articles

Sarcoidosis is an idiopathic multisystem disease characterized by the formation of noncaseating granulomas. It frequently presents with pulmonary infiltrates and bilateral hilar and mediastinal lymphadenopathy. Splenic involvement is common, but massive splenomegaly is a rare occurrence. Sarcoidosis is known as "the great mimicker" (or "the great imitator") since it exhibits a myriad of symptoms, mimicking other inflammatory, infectious, and neoplastic conditions, including lymphoma. Herein, we report the case of a 44-year-old male patient who was found to have bicytopenia, hypercalcemia, diffuse lymphadenopathy, and massive splenomegaly, a constellation of findings suggestive of underlying lymphoma. Interestingly, lymph node biopsy showed noncaseating granulomas ...

Journal Articles

PLZF is a transcription repressor, which plays a critical role in development, spermatogenesis and oncogenesis. Down-regulation of PLZF has been found in various tumor cell lines. There has been virtually no tissue study on the expression of PLZF in prostate cancer (PCa). PCa is a heterogeneous disease, most of which are indolent and non-lethal. Currently there are no biomarkers that distinguish indolent from aggressive PCa; therefore there is an urgent need for such markers to provide clinical decision support. This study aimed to investigate the expression of PLZF by immunohistochemistry in different grade as well as metastatic PCa and to ...

Primary Xanthoma Of The Mandible: Report Of A Rare Case, D. Morel, R. D. Kelsch, P. J. Nolan

Journal Articles

Xanthoma is a lesion most commonly seen in soft tissues such as the skin, subcutis, or tendon sheaths. Xanthoma formation is often associated with primary or secondary hyperlipidemia. Primary bone xanthomas are extremely rare benign bone lesions not associated with hyperlipidemia, histopathologically characterized by histiocytes, abundant lipid containing macrophages (foam cells), and multinucleated giant cells. Cholesterol clefts can be found in the medullary bone. Less than ten cases of xanthoma in the mandible have been reported. We present a rare primary intrabony xanthoma in a normolipidemic patient.

A Rare Case Of A Primary Squamous Cell Carcinoma Of The Stomach Presenting As A Submucosal Mass, W. Von Waagner, Z. Wang, A. I. Picon

Journal Articles

We report a case of a 70-year-old man, with a status after aortic valve replacement, who presented with melena and hypotension. On physical examination, he was hypotensive, but he responded to resuscitation. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy revealed a submucosal mass in the gastric fundus. Imaging of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis showed no evidence of local or distant metastasis. He underwent a partial diaphragmatic resection, gastrectomy, lymphadenectomy, and Roux-en-Y esophagojejunostomy. Pathology showed a gastric squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) invading the diaphragm, with negative margins of resection, and one positive perigastric lymph node. He received chemoradiation, but the patient expired 27 months after surgery.

Tbl1xr1 In Physiological And Pathological States, J. Y. Li, G. Daniels, J. Wang, X. Zhang

Journal Articles

Transducin (beta)-like 1X related protein 1 (TBL1XR1/TBLR1) is an integral subunit of the NCoR (nuclear receptor corepressor) and SMRT (silencing mediator of retinoic acid and thyroid hormone receptors) repressor complexes. It is an evolutionally conserved protein that shares high similarity across all species. TBL1XR1 is essential for transcriptional repression mediated by unliganded nuclear receptors (NRs) and othe regulated transcription factors (TFs). However, it can also act as a transcription activator through the recruitment of the ubiquitin-conjugating/19S proteasome complex that mediates the exchange of corepressors for coactivators. TBL1XR1 is required for the activation of multiple intracellular signaling pathways ...
