OBJECTIVE/PURPOSE: Extramammary Paget disease (EMPD) is a rare neoplasm of the skin generally affecting the anogenital area. Because of the low-frequency of the disease, no specific guidelines about the treatment strategy are available. Surgery is the recommended therapy for resectable and localized disease, but several other local treatments have been reported such as radiotherapy (RT). Most articles report small retrospective studies, referring to patients treated decades ago with large heterogeneity in terms of RT dose and technique...

Advanced extramammary Paget's disease does not have a standardized treatment guideline as its incidence is low and has been rarely reported in literature. Here we describe a case of metastatic extramammary Paget's disease successfully treated with topical 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and systemic pemetrexed. The therapy was safe without any appreciable adverse effects like diarrhea, rash, neutropenia or fatigue; maintaining remission for more than 6 months. Thus, we propose 5-FU and pemetrexed as the first-line therapy for advanced extramammary Paget's disease, especially for aged patients with unresectable skin lesions...

Extramammary Paget's disease (EMPD) is a rare intraepithelial neoplasm with an extremely variable clinical course. The objective of this study was to determine if combination imiquimod and photodynamic therapy could induce remission of EMPD. A 69-year-old man with EMPD was treated with topical imiquimod 5% cream at night for 5 days per week for 1 month, followed by 2 months of 5% imiquimod for three nights a week. For the following 6 months, monthly 5-aminolevulinic acid photodynamic therapy was added. After 6 months, imiquimod was discontinued and the patient continued to be treated with quarterly photodynamic therapy...

Extramammary Paget's disease (EMPD) is a rare, slow-growing, cutaneous adenocarcinoma that usually originates in the anogenital area and axillae outside the mammary glands. EMPD mostly progresses slowly and is often diagnosed as carcinoma in situ ; however, upon becoming invasive, it promptly and frequently metastasizes to regional lymph nodes, leading to subsequent distant metastasis. To date, several chemotherapy regimens have been used to treat metastatic EMPD; however, they present limited effect and patients with distant metastasis exhibit a poor prognosis...

Extramammary Paget disease of the vulva is a rare condition that accounts for only 1-2% of vulvar malignancies and represents a frequent cause of misdiagnosis. It is most commonly seen in postmenopausal women. Clinically it is similar to Paget disease of the breast, appearing as red, well-demarcated eczematoid lesions, with slightly raised edges. A high degree of clinical suspicion is very important when evaluating these lesions in order to avoid misdiagnosis and delay of effective treatment. We present a case of vulvar Paget disease treated with vulvectomy...

Extramammary Paget's disease (EMPD) is one of the cutaneous adenocarcinomas. The effective chemotherapy for advanced EMPD has not been established. This study was designed to evaluate the efficacy of combination 5-fluorouracil (500 mg/body, 7 days/week) and cisplatin (5 mg/body 5 days/week) for invasive EMPD. Seventeen EMPD patients with multiple metastases who visited our dermatology clinic between October 2004 and May 2016 (mean age, 76.9 years; 10 men, seven women) were retrospectively analyzed. Eight EMPD patients underwent low-dose 5-fluorouracil/cisplatin therapy and nine patients chose best supportive care...

Differentiating primary Paget's disease from secondary Paget's disease, which is also known as Pagetoid growth of other cancers, in the perianal region is difficult. Given that the treatment strategies of both disease are significantly different, diagnosis of such conditions should be performed with caution. We report a case of secondary Paget's disease. A 76-year-old man previously visited a hospital because of erythematous plaque around the anus. It was diagnosed as extramammary Paget's disease based on skin biopsy results; consequently, perianal skin resection was performed...

BACKGROUND: Extra-mammary Paget's disease of the vulva (EMPDV) is an infrequent chronic disease that often recurs. The aim of the study was to assess the presence of neoangiogenesis and the expression of epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) markers in EMPDV, and their potential correlation with stromal invasion. METHODS: All the women consecutively treated for EMPDV at our Institute, between January 2011 and December 2014, were studied for neoangiogenesis, analysed by microvessel density (MVD) using antibodies against CD31 and CD34...

Primary cutaneous mucinous carcinoma (PCMC) is an uncommon tumor of the sweat gland origin. The occurrence of PCMC is mostly in middle-aged and older patients, with a slight male predominance. Most cases of PCMC arise on the head, with a preference for eyelids. The histogenesis of PCMC, whether eccrine or apocrine, remains controversial. We report a rare case of PCMC with secondary extramammary Paget's disease in the groin of a 75-year-old man, which favored an apocrine origin. Furthermore, based on a review of the literature, we provide several histologic clues that can be used to differentiate PCMC from metastatic mucinous carcinoma...

OBJECTIVES: Extramammary Paget disease (EMPD) of the vulva is a rare lesion with a high recurrence rate ranging from 12% to 61%. The rate of underlying adenocarcinoma varies, but in the largest series was reported at 4%. Given the rarity of the disease there is a paucity of data to optimize treatment. This study aims to describe the management and recurrence patterns in a tertiary care setting and to offer suggestions for management in a modern-day setting. METHODS: Patients with pathologically confirmed EMPD treated from 2000 to 2015 were retrospectively identified using an IRB approved database...

Primary cutaneous apocrine carcinoma (PCAC) is a rare and highly aggressive tumor entity. Since there is no conventional therapy for advanced PCAC, exploratory treatments are sometimes used. As we previously reported, receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa-B (RANK) ligand (RANKL)/RANK signaling on M2 macrophages promotes the production of chemokines and proinflammatory cytokines to maintain the immunosuppressive tumor environment of extramammary Paget's disease (EMPD). Since EMPD is a skin adenocarcinoma of apocrine gland origin that expresses high levels of RANKL and matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) 7, and EMPD is associated with the presence of RANK+ M2 macrophages, we hypothesized that tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs) in adenocarcinomas such as PCAC might also express RANKL and MMP7...

BACKGROUND: Extramammary Paget's disease (EMPD) sometimes shows an ill-defined border and an unexpectedly extended tumor spread beyond the clinical borders. Mapping biopsy is one approach for complete surgical removal, but its efficacy has remained controversial. OBJECTIVE: We sought to evaluate the mapping biopsy for EMPD. METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of 133 patients with 150 primary EMPD lesions. We histopathologically examined 1182 skin biopsy specimens (975 from mapping biopsy and 207 from lesional biopsy)...

Extramammary Paget's disease (EMPD) is an uncommon intraepithelial carcinoma usually found as an irregular, pruritic plaque on the apocrine-rich anogenital skin. Diagnosis of EMPD is challenging due to the rarity of the disease and the uncharacteristic clinical aspect and requires histopathological confirmation. We report the case of a 62-year-old human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive male, which presents with a lesion of the left part of pubic area with clinical and dermatoscopic appearance suggestive for Bowen's disease but with histopathological diagnosis of EMPD...

Extramammary Paget disease (EMPD) is a rare cutaneous neoplasm. Perianal Paget disease (PPD) is a subset of EMPD manifesting perianal lesions. Two cases of PPD in Severance Hospital are described in this article. A 65-year-old female and 78-year-old male patients visited our institution because of an unhealed perianal skin lesion despite treatment for a long period with topical agents. PPD was diagnosed by skin biopsies in both cases, and the patients underwent surgical treatment. Clinical manifestations, preoperative work-ups, and surgical treatments including different reconstruction methods are described in detail...

Mammary Paget disease is the intraepidermal adenocarcinoma of the nipple area which is characterized usually by a well-demarcated eczematous plaque. Reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM), is an in vivo noninvasive diagnostic tool with a high-resolution imaging of the skin, almost comparable to conventional histology. RCM findings of Paget disease are limited in the literature. Most of the reported cases are the extramammary type. In this report, we aimed to evaluate the RCM findings of a non-pigmented mammary Paget disease in a 65 year-old woman...

Paget's disease is an intraepithelial adenocarcinoma arising from the apocrine gland component of the skin. Paget's disease is most common in the breast but extra mammary disease is also seen. Perianal Paget's disease is a rare form of extramammary disease with few cases reported in literature. It can be primary-arising from the skin or secondary-cutaneous metastases of anorectal or genitourinary malignancy. We hereby wish to report a case of perianal Paget's disease that presented as an eczematous lesion and was diagnosed incidentally on biopsy...
