    ABSTRACT: The aim of this paper is to determine the possible association between five different profiles of immunohistochemical expression related to clinical, histopathological and immunohistochemical known prognostic value variables for breast cancer. A total of 194 breast carcinoma tumour samples were studied. In this study five groups or immunohistochemical profiles were defined, based on expression of hormone receptors (oestrogen or progesterone) and/or Her2/neu (luminal-type A, luminal-type B, mixed profile, Her2/neu profile and triple-negative-type profile) and we studied whether there are differences between them with regard to clinical, histopathological and immunohistochemical variables that have a known prognostic significance. In the series we found 134 (69%) cases corresponding to a luminal immunophenotype, of which 98 (50.5%) were from the luminal A group and 36 (18.6%) from luminal B. Twenty-nine cases (15.9%) were triple-negative, 18 (9.3%) mixed and 13 (6.7%) Her2/neu type. It is worth noting the relationship between the triple-negative and Her2/neu immunophenotypes and the more poorly differentiated histological forms (62% and 60%, respectively) and between the luminal A group and well-differentiated tumours (p = 0.008). Expression of ki67 was high in the triple-negative group (73.9%) and low in the luminal A group (26.3%; p = 0.001). The expression of p53 was also greater for the Her2/neu (55.5%) and triple-negative (60.8%) groups (p = 0.0005) than for the others. The subgroups without hormone receptor expression, with Her2/neu overexpression or without (triple-negative group), have characteristics associated with variables of a poorer prognosis. The lack of progesterone receptor expression also seems to be associated with these.

Results In the series we found 134 (69%) cases corresponding to a luminal immunophenotype, of which 98 (50.5%) were from the luminal A group and 36 (18.6%) from luminal B. Twentynine cases (15.9%) were triple-negative, 18 (9.3%) mixed and 13 (6.7%) Her2/neu type. It is worth noting the relationship between the triple-negative and Her2/neu immunophe-notypes and the more poorly differentiated histological forms (62% and 60%, respectively) and between the luminal A group and well-differentiated tumours (p = 0.008). Expression of ki67 was high in the triple-negative group (73.9%) and low in the luminal A group (26.3%; p = 0.001).

    ABSTRACT: The sentinel node is defined as the node with the highest probability of being involved in the case of lymphatic spread from a tumor. Accurate identification and biopsy of this node can avoid unnecessary lymphadenectomies. The aim of this study was to determine if there are differences in the number of isolated sentinel lymph nodes in breast cancer according to whether a mixed technique (vital dye plus isotopic tracer) or radiotracer alone is used and if there are differences in the detection of more than one lymphatic basin and in the number of lymphatic nodes depending on the site of tracer injection. A total of 173 sentinel lymph node biopsies in 173 women with breast cancer were studied taking into account the technique (mixed [n = 109] or radiotracer alone [n = 64]) and the location of tracer injection (periareolar [n = 81], intra and/or peritumoral [n = 92]). The number of lymphatic basins and the number of sentinel nodes were compared among the distinct groups resulting from the combination of the 2 parameters. Simultaneous drainage to both the axilla and internal mammary chain was more frequent with the intra-periareolar technique. The number of identified nodes was significantly higher when mixed techniques were compared, and was higher with periareolar injection than with the intra-peritumoral route. In breast cancer sentinel lymph node biopsy, the number of identified nodes is not influenced by the use of a mixed technique or radiotracer alone. However, the number of identified nodes is higher with the periareolar route than with the intra-peritumoral route. Intra-peritumoral injection of the tracer shows a higher frequency of internal mammary chain drainage than periareolar injection, although this difference was not statistically significant.

    ABSTRACT: The differential diagnosis between macrocystic serous cystoadenoma and mucinous cystoadenoma is very difficult but is highly important due to the latter's potential for malignant transformation. We present a case of unilocular macrocystic serous cystoadenoma. Due to the impossibility of obtaining an accurate preoperative diagnosis, all macrocystic unilocular lesions, in an appropriate clinical context, must be resected.

    ABSTRACT: The anatomical location of cutaneous melanoma has been suggested to be an independent prognostic factor. The aim of the present study was to determine whether the location of the primary tumor influences sentinel node detection in cutaneous melanoma. Two hundred twelve patients with primary cutaneous melanoma (96 of the limbs, 89 of the trunk and 27 of the head or neck) who underwent sentinel lymph node biopsy were studied. Adequate lymphoscintigraphic and surgical localization was evaluated and epidemiological and histopathological variables, the number of lymph nodes draining the site of the primary lesion, sentinel nodes per drainage basin, and tumor-positive nodes were compared. Localization was less successful for tumors of the head and neck (88.8%), both with lymphoscintigraphy (P<.001) and surgery (P<.0005), especially for lymph nodes adjacent to salivary glands (P<.0005). Melanomas of the trunk showed a greater number of nodes per lesion and wider variability in drainage pathways (P<.0005), although there were no differences in the number of sentinel nodes per drainage basin (P=.455). Sentinel node detection with less successful in cutaneous melanomas located in the head and neck. Location of the sentinel node adjacent to a salivary gland is a factor that influences its detection. Cutaneous melanomas of the trunk showed a higher number of draining nodes per lesion than those located in the limbs or head and neck.
