SATB2 for appendiceal neoplasms

Michelle Moh, Gregor Krings, Deniz Ates, Anil Aysal, Grace E Kim, Joseph T Rabban
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...
