SATB2 for appendiceal neoplasms

Elisa Schmoeckel, Thomas Kirchner, Doris Mayr
The differentiation between a primary mucinous ovarian neoplasm and an extra-ovarian metastasis in the ovary is often challenging in the histopathologic practice. Among various ovarian metastases from the gastro-intestinal tract the low-grade appendiceal mucinous neoplasm (LAMN) is an important differential diagnosis to consider particularly in case of pseudomyxoma peritonei. A newly recognized marker in the routine diagnostic of a mucinous neoplasm in the ovary is SATB2 (Special AT-rich sequence-binding protein 2)...

The differential diagnosis of glandular lesions of the bladder/urinary tract can be challenging because of significant morphologic and immunohistochemical overlap between primary lesions and metastasis/direct extension from adjacent organs. Special AT-rich sequence-binding protein 2 (SATB2), encoded on chromosome 2q32-33, is a recently described DNA-binding protein involved in osteoblast lineage commitment and expressed in colorectal and appendiceal neoplasms. In this study, we hypothesized that immunohistochemistry for SATB2 may be of value in distinguishing primary adenocarcinoma of the bladder/urinary tract and urothelial carcinoma with glandular differentiation from gastrointestinal and endocervical primaries...

Objectives: Determination of the primary site of origin for mucinous neoplasms identified in the peritoneal and/or pelvic cavities may be challenging, with major differential diagnoses including appendiceal mucinous neoplasm (AMN) and ovarian mucinous neoplasm (OMN). Special AT-rich sequence binding protein 2 (SATB2) has been shown to be highly selectively expressed in the lower gastrointestinal tract, including the appendix. Methods: We investigated the utility of a dual stain (DS) with SATB2 or caudal type homeobox 2 (CDX2) and cytokeratin 20 (CK20) or villin in distinguishing AMNs from OMNs...

The primary origin of some ovarian mucinous tumors may be challenging to determine, because some metastases of extraovarian origin may exhibit gross, microscopic, and immunohistochemical features that are shared by some primary ovarian mucinous tumors. Metastases of primary colorectal, appendiceal, gastric, pancreatic, and endocervical adenocarcinomas may simulate primary ovarian mucinous cystadenoma, mucinous borderline tumor, or mucinous adenocarcinoma. Recently, immunohistochemical expression of SATB2, a transcriptional regulator involved in osteoblastic and neuronal differentiation, has been shown to be a highly sensitive marker of normal colorectal epithelium and of colorectal adenocarcinoma...

AIMS: The distinction between primary ovarian mucinous tumours and appendiceal mucinous neoplasms metastatic to the ovary can be challenging, given the overlap of morphological features and immunohistochemical expression of traditional markers. Special AT-rich sequence-binding protein 2 (SATB2) has recently been described as a sensitive and specific marker of colorectal epithelium. This study was to determine its expression in appendiceal mucinous tumours and its role in their distinction from ovarian neoplasms...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the clinicopathologic characteristics, prognosis and histologic origin of the mucinous tumor of the peritoneum. METHODS: According to 2010 WHO classification of tumours of the digestive system, 34 cases diagnosed as "pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) " were reevaluated and divided into low grade and high grade. Immunohistochemistry was applied to investigate the expression of SATB2 and the histologic origin of the mucinous tumor of the peritoneum, using antibodies against SATB2, CK7, CK20 and CDX-2...
