A 36-year-old Chinese woman was referred to our hospital for further examination of an abnormal shadow on chest X-ray. Chest computed tomography(CT) revealed a 5 mm circular nodule in diameter in right lung S3 and a 32 mm mass in diameter in right lung S7. The S7 mass showed an abnormal accumulation of SUVmax=4.0 on positron emission tomography( PET)-CT. Transbronchial biopsy was performed, but failed to rule out possible malignancy. Differential diagnoses were multiple lung benign tumor, multiple lung metastases from unknown primary cancer, malignant lymphoma or primary lung cancer, and so on...

BACKGROUND: We wanted to assess the efficacy of curative intent pulmonary resection for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients with synchronous M1b-distant metastases in a single organ or lesion. METHODS: Between 1995 and 2015, 23 consecutive synchronous M1b-cStage IV NSCLC patients who underwent any treatment for metastases and curative intent pulmonary resection were retrospectively analyzed. RESULTS: Sixteen patients were men and 7 were women, with a median age of 56 years (range: 41 to 76 years)...

A 71-year-old man presented with hemothorax with cough, sputa and worsening dyspnea. On chest X-ray and computed tomography(CT), a huge tumor in the right upper lobe with hematoma and small amount of gas suggesting hemopneumothorax was revealed. No apparent lymphadenopathy nor intrapulmonary metastases were observed. The tumor showed a little enhancement on the contrastenhanced CT. Then the resction of the tumor was performed, and the pathological evaluation revealed a carcionosarcoma (adenocarcinoma+osteosarcoma) pT3N0 (stage II B) G4 pl2...

Expression of thyroid transcription factor (TTF)-1 corroborates a thyroid origin of neoplasms. Thyroglobulin and calcitonin immunohistochemistry (IHC) can distinguish between a follicular and C-cell origin of thyroid tumours, respectively. Pax8 (expressed by normal canine thyroid follicular cells) and napsin A (expressed mainly by C-cells) labelling was compared with labelling for TTF-1, thyroglobulin and calcitonin in 114 canine proliferative thyroid lesions. All 81 follicular tumours expressed thyroglobulin and were negative for calcitonin; 79/81 (98%) of these tumours expressed TTF-1 and Pax8 and 60/81 (74%) expressed napsin A...

In comparison with other tumor entities there is no common generally accepted grading system for lung cancer with clearly defined criteria and clinical relevance. In the recent fourth edition of the World Health Organization (WHO) classification from 2015 of tumors of the lungs, pleura, thymus and heart, there is no generally applicable grading for pulmonary adenocarcinomas, squamous cell carcinomas or rarer forms of carcinoma. Since the new IASLC/ATS/ERS classification of adenocarcinomas published in 2011, 5 different subtypes with significantly different prognosis are proposed...

Egyptian fruit bats (Rousettus aegyptiacus) are one of many species within zoologic collections that frequently develop iron storage disease. The goals of this retrospective multi-institutional study were to determine the tissue distribution of iron storage in captive adult Egyptian fruit bats and the incidence of intercurrent neoplasia and infection, which may be directly or indirectly related to iron overload. Tissue sections from 83 adult Egyptian fruit bats were histologically evaluated by using tissue sections stained with hematoxylin and eosin, trichrome, and Prussian blue techniques...

Pulmonary carcinosarcoma represents a category of extremely rare tumours accounting for 0.1% of all lung malignancies. It is defined as a poorly differentiated non-small-cell carcinoma that contains a component of sarcoma or sarcoma-like elements. These biphasic tumours typically have a poor prognosis due to late diagnosis and early metastases. Preoperative tissue diagnosis is usually difficult due to the heterogeneity of the tumour, with biopsies often just reflecting one element of the tumour. By means of a case illustration and review of the literature, we discuss the optimal management of patients with pulmonary carcinosarcoma...

Pulmonary sarcomatoid carcinomas are a rare group of tumors accounting for about one percent of non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC). In 2015, the World Health Organization classification united under this name all the carcinomas with sarcomatous-like component with spindle cell or giant cell appearance, or associated with a sarcomatous component sometimes heterologous. There are five subtypes: pleomorphic carcinoma, spindle cell carcinoma, giant cell carcinoma, carcinosarcoma and pulmonary blastoma. Clinical characteristics are not specific from the other subtypes of NSCLC...

The authors report a case of carcinosarcoma (CS) of the fimbria of the fallopian tube in which carcinoma cells disappeared with neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC). A 74-year-old woman visited the present hospital with a large pelvic mass and pleural effusion. A magnetic resonance image of the tumor was highly suggestive of ovarian carcinoma. Due to the presence of both serous.adenocarcinoma cells in pleural effusion and pulmonary thrombosis, the patient was given NAC consisting of carboplatin plus paclitaxel (TC) and anticoagulant therapy with warfarin potassium...

Tracheobronchial aspergillosis is a form of invasive aspergillosis limited to the airways. Its presence usually indicates an immunocompromised status or local dysfunction of airway immunity. We herein report a case of lung carcinosarcoma masked by tracheobronchial aspergillosis and discuss the clinical manifestations, diagnostic procedures and treatment of such cases. Tracheobronchial aspergillosis may also mask endobronchial carcinoma, leading to difficulties in determining the diagnosis and selecting subsequent treatment...

INTRODUCTION: Sarcomatoid carcinoma is an extremely rare, biphasic tumor characterized by a combination of malignant epithelial and mesenchymal cells. Limited data showed that most cases occurred with advanced local disease and metastasis. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We present a rare case of a 60-year-old man with three small intestinal intussusceptions due to metastatic pulmonary carcinosarcoma. He was explored for chest pain and hemoptysis in Emergency room. Due to his chest symptoms he had a computed tomography (CT) scan of the chest which showed a lesion about 60mm in diameter in the inferior lobe of the left lung...

Carcinosarcoma is an uncommon malignant biphasic tumor that accounts for less than 1% of all lung cancers. It is defined by coexisting histologic elements of carcinomatous and sarcomatous components. We report two cases of carcinosarcoma in a 68-year-old patient and a 78-year-old patient explored for lung masses. Macroscopically, the resected tumors were 7 and 10 cm in diameter. Histologically, they consisted in adenosquamous carcinoma with osteosarcoma in one case and adenocarcinoma with chondrosarcoma in the other case...

OBJECTIVES: Pulmonary sarcomatoid carcinomas (SC) are highly disseminated types of non-small-cell lung carcinoma. Their prognosis is poor. New therapeutic targets are needed to improve disease management. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From 1995 to 2013, clinical and survival data from all consecutive patients with surgically treated SC were collected. Pathological and biomarker analyses were performed: TTF1, P63, c-MET and ALK expression (immunohistochemistry), PAS staining, ALK rearrangement (FISH), and EGFR, KRAS, HER2, BRAF, PIK3CA, and MET genes mutations (PCR)...

Pulmonary carcinosarcoma is a rare lung tumor, which contains both malignant carcinomatous and heterotopic sarcomatous components. There are only few case reports on the imaging diagnosis of this rare tumor. Herein, we present the radiological findings of this rare tumor, which was suspected on computed tomography (CT) scan due to atypical CT findings of malignant lung mass (not usually seen in bronchogenic carcinoma) and was finally confirmed histologically.

INTRODUCTION: Sarcomatoid carcinoma (SC) of the lung is defined by the World Health Organization as poorly differentiated non-small cell carcinoma that contains a component of sarcoma or sarcoma-like elements. It represents an overall continuum of epithelial and mesenchymal differentiation. Five subtypes are recognized: pleomorphic carcinoma, spindle cell carcinoma, giant cell carcinoma, carcinosarcoma, and pulmonary blastoma. The diagnosis is pathological and requires a good sampling of the tumor...

BACKGROUND: The lung is the most common site for metastatic carcinomas. Very few studies have comprehensively analyzed all pulmonary resections for metastatic carcinomas. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To analyze all lung resections for suspected metastatic carcinomas accrued over 10 years to evaluate: (i). The most frequent primary site,(ii). The interval between primary tumor diagnosis and lung metastases, and (iii). The proportion of inadvertently resected benign lesions, clinicoradiologically mistaken for metastatic deposits...

Immunohistochemistry is often used to distinguish pulmonary sarcomatoid carcinoma from morphologic mimics. Napsin-A is a pulmonary adenocarcinoma marker, but literature on expression in sarcomatoid carcinoma is limited. Thirty-six cases of sarcomatoid carcinoma were stained for napsin, TTF-1, Oscar, CAM5.2, AE1/AE3, desmin, SMA, S-100, CK5/6, calretinin, D2-40, and WT1. Patients were 24 men and 12 women (mean, 70 years; range, 46-93). There were 27 pleomorphic carcinomas, 5 spindle cell carcinomas, 3 carcinosarcomas, and 1 giant cell carcinoma...
