Pleuropulmonary blastoma (PPB) is a rare malignancy of childhood. It often represents a manifestation of a hereditary tumor predisposition syndrome (DICER1 syndrome). Because of its malignant potential, surgical resection of cystic lung lesions is recommended in germline DICER1 mutation carriers. We present a case of a 3-year-old male child with type III PPB successfully managed with ifosfamide, vincristine, actinomycin-D, and doxorubicin (IVADo) chemotherapy and surgery. A heterozygous germline pR688X mutation of DICER1 gene was demonstrated...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Growing evidence suggests that genetic predisposition significantly increases the risk of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), independently from the presence of other risk factors. Here, we report a novel germline DICER1 mutation associated with familial recurrent liver tumors. Next, we aimed to investigate the contribution of constitutional and somatic DICER1 mutations on HCC occurrence. METHODS: We investigated two individuals of a family that developed recurrent well-differentiated hepatocellular tumors over the years...

Pulmonary blastoma (PB) is a rare form of lung tumour and is accountable for 0.25-0.5% of primary pulmonary malignancies. Initially pulmonary blastoma was divided into three subtypes: biphasic pulmonary blastoma (BPB) consisting of an epithelial and mesenchymal component, well differentiated fetal adenocarcinoma (WDFA) built of well differentiated epithelium and a mesenchymal component and malignant pleuropulmonary blastoma (PPB). Prognosis in this type of cancer is really poor. We present a current review of literature and a clinical case report...

It has been reported that germline DICER1 mutations correlate with a distinctive human disease syndrome. Many published studies within this field have been conducted based on rare cases. We systematically searched bibliographic databases, including PubMed, Embase, and COSMIC for articles which are related to diseases covered by DICER1 syndrome. The weighted summary of mutation frequencies among patients with pleuropulmonary blastoma (PPB), cystic nephroma (CN), and Sertoli-Leydig cell tumor (SLCT) were calculated...

Nasal chondromesenchymal hamartoma (NCMH) is a rare nasal benign tumor, which arises from the nasal cavity or paranasal sinuses. In this article, we present a five-year-old male patient with rhabdomyosarcoma unity in remission that emerged with nasal obstruction. Synchronous diagnosis of pediatric tumors such as pleuropulmonary blastoma in the literature is a remarkable finding. We found a mass within the left nasal cavity originating from superior portion of nasal septum, extending to the olfactory cleft and resected all tumor via endoscopic surgical approach...

The familial tumor predisposition syndrome known as DICER1-pleuropulmonary blastoma (PPB) or DICER1 tumor predisposition syndrome was first described in 2009, and it involves an increased risk in the occurrence of various tumors, like cystic nephroma and PPB. Here is presented a girl with a cystic nephroma and two cystic lung lesions who was diagnosed years later with the DICER1 gene mutation. This mutation was also found in one of her parents. Thus, the screening for the DICER1 gene mutation may be important in children with certain/multiple tumors and their families...

Congenital airway pulmonary malformations are increasingly being diagnosed, but their management continues to remain controversial. Our approach has been to offer surgery to mitigate the risk of infection and possible malignancy. All patients routinely undergo a CT scan of the chest postnatally and once the diagnosis is confirmed, minimal access surgery is offered. Our anesthetists provide single-lung ventilation to enhance the operative view. We conducted a retrospective review over a 10-year period, during which 91 patients were prenatally suspected to have a cystic lung lesion...

Pleuropulmonary blastoma (PPB) is a rare primitive intrathoracic malignant neoplasm that occurs almost exclusively in children and adolescents. PPB is classified into three types according to the presence of cystic and solid areas. We report a case of PPB with an intraocular metastasis diagnosed by fine needle aspiration (FNA): 3-year-old female was treated for type II PPB by neoadjuvant chemotherapy and surgery. Four years later, she presented with an intraocular lesion. To differentiate between metastasis or other malignancy, a transcleral FNA was performed and showed two cellular populations represented by roundish malignant cells and spindle-shaped cells...

Anaplastic sarcoma of the kidney (ASK) is a tumor found in the pediatric age group and shows many histopathological similarities to pleuropulmonary blastoma (PPB). We present a 12-year-old girl diagnosed with ASK and, three years later, with thyroid follicular carcinoma (TFC) with DICER1 abnormalities. Germline insertion/deletion (p.G1809_S1814delinsA) and independent somatic mutations (p.E1705K in ASK, p.E1813D in TFC) were identified. All of these abnormalities are in the catalytic domain of RNase IIIb. Single-nucleotide polymorphism genotyping microarray revealed independent copy number alterations (trisomy 8, monosomy 10, loss of 17p and partial gain of 17q in ASK; trisomy 5 and partial loss of Xq in TFC)...

In recent years, hereditary cancer syndromes have developed greater interest in the scientific community. Two such syndromes, rhabdoid tumor syndrome and pleuropulmonary blastoma (DICER1) syndrome, have appeared increasingly in the literature. This review will discuss these two syndromes in terms of clinical parameters, associated tumors, and genetic associations.

Pleuropulmonary blastoma (PPB) is a rare childhood tumor, often associated with germline DICER1 mutations and a risk for development of other benign and malignant tumors, a constellation termed DICER1 syndrome. A 1-year-old male was diagnosed with Type I PPB and screened regularly thereafter for detection of intrathoracic and intraabdominal disease. Ten months after diagnosis of PPB, he presented with headaches and vomiting. He was diagnosed with atypical choroid plexus papilloma, a lesion not previously reported with PPB...

PURPOSE: Germ-line mutations in DICER1 increase the risk of various tumors, including pleuropulmonary blastoma. Macrocephaly and symmetric overgrowth have been reported in some, but not all, patients with mosaic DICER1 RNase IIIb mutations. The prevalence of these features in individuals with constitutional germ-line DICER1 mutations is unknown. METHODS: We analyzed prospectively collected auxology data from 67 DICER1 mutation carriers and 43 family controls. We assessed differences between groups using an exact test for proportions and generalized estimating equations for continuous dependent variables...

Childhood rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) accounts for approximately 3.5% of cancer cases among children 0 to 14 years of age. Genetic conditions associated with high risk of childhood RMS include Li-Fraumeni syndrome, pleuropulmonary blastoma, Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome, and some RASopathies, such as neurofibromatosis type 1, Costello syndrome (CS), and Noonan syndrome (NS). Here, we report the rare case of a 4-year-old girl with clinical features of NS who developed an embryonal RMS of the chest and needed emergent treatment...

The DICER1 gene encodes an endoribonuclease involved in the production of mature microRNAs which regulates gene expression through several mechanisms. Carriers of germline DICER1 mutations are predisposed to a rare cancer syndrome, the DICER1 syndrome. Pleuropulmonary blastoma is the most frequent lesion seen in this syndrome. Thyroid abnormalities are also a common finding, essentially concerning multinodular goiter. However, differentiated thyroid carcinoma is infrequently seen in such pedigrees. In addition to germline DICER1 mutations, specific somatic mutations have been identified in the DICER1 RNase IIIb catalytic domain in several tumor types, including ovarian Sertoli-Leydig cell tumors...

PURPOSE: Primary lung tumors are rare during childhood and encompass a wide variety of histological types. Each has a different biology and a different therapeutic approach. The aim of this article is to review the experience of a pediatric referral center with this kind of tumors during the last 24 years. METHODS: A retrospective chart review was performed for patients with diagnosis of primary lung tumor between the years 1990-2014. The variables analyzed were age, sex, course of the disease, symptoms, localization, surgery, histology and outcome...
