We identified a case of lymphadenopathy of metastatic papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) with CD20 expression, which was also expressed by the primary tumor. CD20 expression was identified using immunohistochemistry (IHC) in metastatic PTC biopsy samples from a 58-year-old woman. CD20 expression was initially determined using a CD20-recognizing L26 clone. To validate this phenomenon, we performed IHC with another antibody that recognizes the N-terminus of CD20 and fluorescent double staining using anti-TTF-1 and anti-CD20 antibodies...

We present a case of primary hepatic choriocarcinoma in an 83-year-old Japanese woman with gastric wall and lymph node metastases and a splenic vein tumor thrombus. Multiple irregular hepatic tumors with massive necrosis and hemorrhage were observed during autopsy. Syncytiotrophoblast-like and mononucleated cytotrophoblast-like cell morphology with focal hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC)-like trabecular structures was observed. In immunohistochemical analyses, the tumor cells expressed human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) and cytokeratins (AE1/AE3, CK7, CK19) but were negative for alpha-fetoprotein (AFP), glypican-3, and vimentin...

Intraocular lymphoma is a rare neoplasm that occurs only in the eyes and/or central nervous system. Diagnosis of intraocular lymphoma is difficult because its clinical manifestations mimic chronic uveitis. Pathological examination of the vitreous is one of the main diagnostic tools for intraocular lymphoma, but this is challenging due to the sparse cellularity and specimen degeneration. Here, we reviewed 33 cell block preparations from vitreous perfusion fluid in order to examine the significance of cytopathological findings for differential diagnosis using vitreous samples...

Our group and others have previously reported that a fibrotic focus is a very useful histological factor for the accurate prediction of the outcome of patients with invasive ductal carcinoma of the breast. We classified 258 cases of invasive ductal carcinoma into those with and those without a fibrotic focus to investigate whether the presence of a fibrotic focus was significantly associated with the degree of tumor-associated macrophage (CD68, CD163 or CD204-positive) infiltration or whether the presence of tumor-associated macrophage infiltration heightened the malignant potential of invasive ductal carcinoma with a fibrotic focus...

Antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA) has been known to cause pauci-immune crescentic glomerulonephritis. In addition, several reports described membranous glomerulonephritis (MN) concurrent with ANCA-associated glomerulonephritis. Because the two glomerular diseases simultaneously appear in an ANCA-positive patient, the mechanisms whereby ANCA causes the two different glomerular diseases remain ambiguous. Herein, we report a case of 19-year-old man who presented with hematuria, pre-nephrotic proteinuria, and high titer of myeloperoxidase (MPO)-ANCA...

Squamous cell carcinoma (SqCC) in ulcerative colitis (UC) is rare. A 38 year-old Japanese woman, who suffered from left-sided UC for 18 years, underwent total colectomy due to SqCCs in the rectum and the sigmoid colon. They were well differentiated SqCC, and metastasis was found in the paracolic lymph nodes. Multiple small foci of squamous dysplasia (SD) were noted in the rectal mucosa. Glandular dysplasia was not found. TP53 was not detected in SD. Approximately 40% of cells were immunostained with TP53 in SqCC, however no mutation was found in TP53 gene...

Primordial odontogenic tumor (POT) is a rare lesion in the jaw which has been included as a new entity of benign mixed epithelial and mesenchymal odontogenic tumour in the latest World Health Organization (WHO) classification (2017). Only seven cases have been reported. It typically occurs in the posterior mandible. We report an additional case of POT in the maxilla of an 8-year-old girl presenting with an asymptomatic buccal enlargement. A well-defined, unilocular, radiolucent lesion was observed radiographically...

Mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the gastrointestinal tract is a rare entity. Here, we report a case of mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the transverse colon in a 77-year-old woman who presented with a 2-month history of epigastrium pain, diarrhea and melena. A giant tumor with apparently invading gallbladder was found by enhanced CT scan, then the extended resection of transverse colon was performed for the patient 2 weeks later. Microscopically, the tumor was composed of solid nests of epidermoid and Periodic Acid-Schiff (PAS)-positive mucin-producing cells with desmoplastic stroma...

Malignant non-basaloid tumors that arise from basal cell adenoma (BCA) are extremely rare. The patient was a 72-year-old Japanese male, who had noticed swelling of the left parotid region 21 years ago. A superficial lobectomy was performed. About 60% of the tumor was made up of cribriform and trabecular tissue composed of basaloid cells, which exhibited mild atypia and nuclear expression of β-catenin. This portion of the tumor was considered to be a BCA. In the other part of the tumor, the proliferation of large eosinophilic atypical cells, most of which formed intraductal structures, was observed...

Alterations of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) expression frequently occur in early-stage lung adenocarcinoma. Ubiquitin-specific protease 8 (USP8) has been reported to stabilize EGFR protein at the plasma membrane through the recycling pathway. Here, we examined the correlation between USP8 expression and the expression or mutation status of EGFR, as well as the clinicopathological features of lung adenocarcinoma and patient outcome. Expression of EGFR and USP8 in surgically resected specimens of lung adenocarcinoma (82 cases) was examined by immunohistochemistry...

Human intestinal spirochetosis (HIS) is a condition in which spirochetes attach to and colonize the colorectal epithelium. To our knowledge, no comprehensive studies of HIS in young patient have been published in a developed country. This study aimed to determine the incidence and clinicopathological manifestations of HIS in Japanese patients aged less than 20 years. We retrospectively reviewed 3605 biopsy and 92 surgical specimens obtained from 479 patients admitted to Shinshu University Hospital between 1997 and 2014...

Ryo Miyoshi, Toshi Menju, Akihiko Yoshizawa, Hiroshi Date
Mixed squamous cell and glandular papilloma (mixed papilloma) of the lung is an extremely rare neoplasm, with only 21 cases reported in the English literature. Although the expression of p16(Ink4a) has been analyzed in only two cases of mixed papilloma, they were negative for p16(Ink4a) . Therefore, the significance of p16(Ink4a) overexpression in mixed papilloma remains unclear. This is the first case of mixed papilloma with positive p16(Ink4a) expression in a 72-year-old male smoker. The 20 mm sized tumor was histologically diagnosed as mixed papilloma following right upper lobectomy...

Primary malignant pericardial sarcomatoid mesothelioma (PMPSM) is an extremely rare tumor with poor prognosis. We present an autopsy case in an 80-year-old man admitted for heart failure after one month of treatment at an outpatient clinic. He died three months after symptom onset. A complete autopsy revealed localization of the tumor to the pericardium without other lesions. Histologically, mainly spindle-shaped atypical cells with hyperchromatic nuclei and nucleoli were observed. Immunohistochemical markers for mesothelioma were positive for calretinin, cytokeratin AE1/AE3, and cytokeratin CAM5...

REVIEW
Makoto Osanai
Retinoic acid (RA), an active metabolite of vitamin A, is a critical signaling molecule in various cell types. We found that RA depletion caused by expression of the RA-metabolizing enzyme CYP26A1 promotes carcinogenesis, implicating CYP26A1 as a candidate oncogene. Several studies of CYP26s have suggested that the biological effect of RA on target cells is primarily determined by "cellular RA bioavailability", which is defined as the RA level in an individual cell, rather than by the serum concentration of RA...
