Treatment of patients often includes the administration of medications and sometimes radiation. While the intent is to treat an underlying condition, in some cases, adverse effects occur due to these agents. Most of these adverse effects are mild, however, some can be severe and life-threatening. Furthermore, while these effects are often reversible upon cessation of exposure, especially if the inciting agent is recognized and withdrawn early, others might be permanent or even progressing. Most common histopathologic findings in drug-induced interstitial lung disease include nonspecific interstitial pneumonia (cellular and/or fibrotic), organizing pneumonia with or without bronchiolitis, eosinophilic pneumonia, pulmonary edema, diffuse alveolar damage, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, granulomatous interstitial lung disease, chronic bronchiolitis, and pulmonary hemorrhage...

Intravesical immunotherapy, chemotherapy, and neoadjuvant systemic chemotherapy are among the most frequent therapeutic procedures to treat malignancies of the urinary bladder. These treatment modalities produce reactive morphologic changes in the urothelium that can mimic urothelial carcinoma in situ, urothelial dysplasia or true invasive urothelial neoplasia. Mitomycin C used after transurethral resection of bladder tumor to reduce recurrences, BCG intravesical immunotherapy to treat high risk non-muscle invasive bladder cancer and urothelial carcinoma in situ, and platinum-based systemic chemotherapy to improve post-cystectomy disease-specific survival some of the causes of therapy related atypia in urinary bladder...

Post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorders (PTLD) are a known risk for both solid organ transplant and stem cell transplant recipients. Overall transplant recipients have a six fold increase in risk for developing any kind of non-Hodgkin lymphoma and PTLDs occur in up to 10% of SOT recipients. Several new entities have been accepted or renamed in the 2018 update of the WHO classification of tumors of hematopoietic and lymphoid neoplasms, including florid follicular hyperplasia and extranodal marginal zone lymphomas of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT-lymphoma) (excluding common locations such as stomach and salivary gland)...

An important emerging role of the surgical pathologist besides the traditional tasks of establishment of the diagnosis and documentation of prognostic and predictive factors, is to recognize the possibility of a hereditary condition in cases where the histology is suggestive for a familial cancer syndrome. In recent years, the knowledge regarding all of the above roles, including the role of recognition of familial cancer, has particularly expanded in renal neoplasms with the close scrutiny to morphology, molecular correlates and clinical features of the different sub-types of renal cell carcinoma...

Recognition of hereditary forms of gastrointestinal cancer is of great importance for patients and their families and pathologists play a crucial role in this. This review recapitulates the clinical, pathological and molecular aspects of Hereditary Diffuse Gastric Cancer and Gastric Adenocarcinoma and Proximal Polyposis of the Stomach, as well as hereditary colorectal cancer syndromes such as Lynch syndrome and gastrointestinal polyposis syndromes (including Familial Adenomatous Polyposis, Peutz-Jeghers syndrome and Juvenile Polyposis syndrome)...

With the increased use of modern next generation sequencing technologies in routine molecular pathology practice, the proportion of cancer cases with a definite or probable hereditary background seems to be steadily increasing. Currently, it is assumed that ≥10% of all malignancies develop in the setting of germline predisposition. Diagnosis and recognition of cancer predisposition syndromes relies not rarely on distinctive histopathological features that proved to be highly valuable and reproducible in uncovering those diseases that would otherwise have gone undetected by clinicians as being hereditary in nature...

In cancer of unknown primary (CUP), metastases are clinically and histologically confirmed, but the primary tumor site remains elusive after extensive work-up. CUPs make up for 2-3% of all epithelial malignancies. The two prevailing histologies are adenocarcinomas and undifferentiated carcinomas, whereas squamous cell carcinomas, neuroendocrine carcinomas and rare histologies account for the remaining 10%. The diagnostic work-up in CUP relies strongly on a detailed immunohistological (IHC) analysis in order to characterize the tumor type, nowadays aided by molecular techniques...

Pathologists use immunohistochemistry is their day-to-day practices to assist in distinguishing site of origin of metastatic carcinomas. Here, the work-up is discussed neuroendocrine carcinomas, squamous cell carcinomas and adenocarcinomas with particular attention to tumor incident rates and predictive values of the best-performing immunohistochemical markers.

The metastasis of neoplastic cells from their site of origin to distant anatomic locations continues to be the principal cause of death from malignant tumors, and that fact has been recognized by physicians for over a century. After the work done by Halsted in the treatment of breast cancer in the 1880s, accepted surgical canon held that metastasis occurred in a linear fashion, with centrifugal "growth in continuity" from the primary neoplasm that first involved regional lymph nodes. Those structures were considered to then be the sources of more distant, visceral metastases...

REVIEW
Mark R Wick
Several primary pathologic entities in diverse anatomic locations have the potential to simulate metastatic neoplasms histologically. Their misinterpretation as such may result in needless and extensive clinical evaluations that are intended to detect a presumed malignancy at another site. More importantly, mistakes of this type can deprive patients of surgical excisions that could be curative. This presentation considers a review of selected primary lesions that can simulate metastases. They include hemangioblastoma, glioblastoma and meningioma with epithelial metaplasia, choroid plexus carcinomas, primary neuroendocrine carcinomas in unusual locations, special forms of sinonasal and salivary glandular adenocarcinoma, clear-cell thyroid carcinomas, unusual microscopic subtypes of pulmonary adenocarcinoma, epithelioid myomelanocytomas ("sugar tumors"), mesotheliomas, primary thymic carcinomas, endodermal choristomas of the interatrial myocardium, peripheral cholangiocarcinoma, adrenocortical carcinoma, adenocarcinomas of the urinary bladder, mucinous and "rhabdoid" tumors of the ovaries, rete testis adenocarcinomas, interdigitating dendritic-cell sarcoma of lymph nodes, selected sweat gland carcinomas, cutaneous Merkel cell carcinoma, primary dermal and subcutaneous melanoma, mucosal and visceral melanomas, epithelioid sarcoma, clear-cell sarcoma, and adamantinoma of long bones...

REVIEW
Shi Wei, Gene P Siegal
Many cancers demonstrate a non-random distribution of sites for distant relapse while others have the propensity to metastasize to multiple organ systems. One of the notable recent findings is that the breast cancer subtypes differ not only in their biological characteristics as primary tumors but also in their capacity for metastatic progression. This information could potentially be utilized in treatment decision making and surveillance strategies.

REVIEW
Abbas Agaimy, William D Foulkes
The SWItch Sucrose non-fermentable (SWI/SNF) complex is a highly conserved multi-subunit complex of proteins encoded by numerous genes mapped to different chromosomal regions. The complex regulates the process of chromatin remodelling and hence plays a central role in the epigenetic regulation of gene expression, cell proliferation and differentiation. During the last three decades, the SWI/SNF complex has been increasingly recognized as a central molecular event driving the initiation and/or progression of several benign and malignant neoplasms of different anatomic origin and having diverse histomorphological appearance...

Atypical lymphocytic infiltrates of the skin comprise a broad spectrum of entities ranging from benign infiltrates to those that are malignant. Many of these infiltrates are in fact reactive lymphomatoid ones related to drug therapy falling under the general category of drug associated pseudolymphoma. Within this nosologic umbrella are nodular and diffuse infiltrates resembling low grade T and B cell lymphoma consistent with lymphocytoma cutis, drug associated reversible T cell dyscrasias which draw a strong morphologic and phenotypic parallel with mycosis fungoides and the various pre-lymphomatous T cell dyscrasias, and angiocentric CD30 positive infiltrates mirroring lymphomatoid papulosis...

REVIEW
Carlos Barrionuevo-Cornejo, Daniela Dueñas-Hancco
This article describes the various non-neoplastic lymphadenopathies that occur in patients infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), before or during the stage of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). The stages that develop during the HIV infection include: primary infection (acute infection, spread of the virus, development of host immune response, and acute retroviral syndrome), chronic infection or clinical latency, and finally, the AIDS stage. Non-neoplastic lymphadenopathies can occur at any of these phases of the infection and are due to multiple causes that can be divided into infectious causes (bacterial, fungal, parasitic, viral), and reactive causes (persistent generalized lymphadenopathy and a variety of situations that they also occur in immunocompetent people such as Castleman's disease and Kikuchi-Fujimoto's disease, among others)...

This chapter describes the main features of two different diseases, Castleman Disease (CD) and Rosai-Dorfman Disease (RDD). Castleman disease (CD) is a clinical and histopathologically heterogeneous lymphoproliferative disorder that encompasses at least three distinct entities with some common overlapping morphological features: Hyaline Vascular CD (HVCD), Unicentric Plasma Cell CD and Multicentric CD. The most important feature of HVCD is the presence of abnormal germinal centers with hyaline-vascular transformation, sometimes showing multiple germinal centers within a single reactive lymphoid follicle, this outlining HVCD as a disorder of follicular dendritic cells...
