    ABSTRACT: ProblemEndometriosis is recognized as a chronic inflammatory disease and is related to immune response. There have been reports that revealed the different distribution of macrophage within the eutopic endometrium of women with endometriosis. Macrophages are functionally polarized into M1 and M2 cell lineages. We studied a difference in the subpopulations of M1 and M2 macrophages within the eutopic endometrium in patients with or without endometriosis to investigate how the eutopic endometrium is stimulated immunologically.Method of studyThirty-six patients with endometriosis (endometriosis group) and 37 without endometriosis (non-endometriosis group) were analyzed. Paraffin-embedded endometrial specimens were used for the study. Consecutive sections were used for immunostaining of CD68 (pan-macrophage marker) and CD163 (M2 macrophage marker). Cells positive for each marker were quantified, and the ratio of M2 macrophages in pan-macrophages was calculated.ResultThe endometriosis group had a significantly higher number of pan-macrophages than the control group in all phases (P < 0.05). The ratios of M2 macrophages in pan-macrophages were significantly lower in all phases in the endometriosis group (P < 0.05).Conclusion The macrophage population slants toward M1 in the endometrium of endometriosis patients. The endometrium appeared to be stimulated by some organelles and/or substances that induce M1 in endometriosis patients.

    ABSTRACT: Preoperative neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) is considered to be the standard treatment for locally-advanced breast carcinomas. Obtaining precise information regarding the tumor extent and distribution by imaging modalities to assess the success of breast-conserving surgery following NAC is extremely important. Analysis of the detailed radiopathological correlation of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) following NAC has not been reported previously. The MRI and histopathological shrinkage patterns of residual breast carcinomas in 27 consecutive cases were analyzed following NAC and classified into five categories: Types I and II (concentric shrinkage with and without surrounding lesions, respectively); type III (shrinkage with residual multinodular lesions); type IV (diffuse contrast enhancement in whole quadrant); and non-visualization. The present study clearly demonstrated that the most common MRI shrinkage pattern was type I (11 cases), followed by type II and non-visualization, and the most common histopathological shrinkage pattern was type II (11 cases), followed by type III (8 cases). The concordance rate between MRI and pathological patterns was 48% and the worst concordance MRI pattern was type I. MRI is considered to be a useful method for evaluation of the residual carcinoma following NAC. However, the concordance rate was low in the MRI pattern I cases and tiny foci of residual carcinoma were present in half of the non-visualization cases, as shown by MRI. Therefore, the tumor extent must be completely resected for patients who undergo NAC, and postoperative radiation may be important for preventing local recurrence of breast carcinoma.

    ABSTRACT: Encapsulating peritoneal sclerosis (EPS) is a rare surgical complication that can occur after intraperitoneal treatment. It is also a serious and potentially fatal complication of continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis. The present report describes a case of surgically treated EPS that probably occurred as a complication of hyperthermic intraperitonal chemotherapy (HIPEC).

    ABSTRACT: Umbilical metastases mainly arise from malignancies of the digestive and gynecological systems, but rarely from breast cancer. A 64-year-old woman with a history of breast cancer was referred to us for investigation of a painful lesion in the umbilicus. Immunohistochemical staining of a specimen obtained by biopsy from the nodule showed umbilical metastasis of breast cancer. After a work up, she was successfully treated with a combination of surgery and endocrine therapy. We report this case to reinforce that not all periumbilical tumoral deposits are consistent.

    ABSTRACT: Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma, which represents 90% of pancreatic cancers, is one of the most lethal and aggressive malignancies. Operative resection remains the only treatment providing prolonged survival, however, recurrence of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma occurs in up to 80% of patients with pancreatic cancer within 2 years of a potential curative resection. There are few reports of pancreatic carcinoma recurrence (primary second cancer) in the remnant pancreas after pancreatectomy.

    ABSTRACT: Neuroenteric cysts are benign intradural endoderm cysts lined by gastrointestinal (GI) or tracheobronchial epithelial cells. Their malignant transformation is extremely rare and only six cases have been reported. In these cases, tissue lineage of the cystic endoderm cells giving rise to carcinoma was not clearly identified either as respiratory or as GI type. Herein, we report a case of mucinous adenocarcinoma arising from the neuroenteric cyst with broncho-pulmonary differentiation in the right cerebral hemisphere of a Japanese woman in her late 50s. The cyst wall was entirely lined by the following respiratory epithelial components: stratified bronchial ciliated columnar epithelium with basal cells positive for CK5 and p63, terminal bronchiolar Clara cells positive for thyroid transcription factor (TTF)-1, surfactant B and negative for surfactant C, type I pneumocytes positive for TTF-1, negative for surfactant B and C, and type II pneumocytes positive for TTF-1 and surfactant B and C. In addition, nests of hyperplastic single layered mucinous epithelial cells with bronchial goblet cell phenotype were also demonstrated, and histologic features were almost the same as the pulmonary type I congenital adenomatoid malformation (CCAM) with mucinous epithelial proliferation. The mucinous epithelial nests of type I CCAM are liable to develop mucinous adenocarcinoma and frequently accompany K-ras mutation and expression of p16. However, K-ras mutation and p-16 expression were not detected in this case.

    ABSTRACT: Colloid carcinoma, characterized by the presence of a large amount of extracellular mucin that results in the formation of mucous lakes with a relative paucity of neoplastic glandular cells within them, is extremely rare in the uterine cervix. Herein, we report an additional case of colloid carcinoma of the cervix and discuss the immunohistochemical characteristics and histogenesis of this extremely rare tumor. A 47-year-old Japanese female without any history of carcinomas was found to have a bulky mass in the cervix. Biopsy from the cervix revealed adenocarcinoma; subsequently, total hysterectomy was performed. Histopathologic study demonstrated that columnar or cuboidal neoplastic glandular cells forming cribriform or tubular structures floated within the mucous lakes involving almost the entire layer of the cervical wall. Adenocarcinoma in situ (AIS) component was also observed. Immunohistochemically, tumor cells of the colloid carcinoma were positive for cytokeratin 7, MUC5AC, MUC6, and p16 (diffuse), but negative for cytokeratin 20, MUC2, and cdx-2. In addition, human papillomavirus 16 was detected in both colloid carcinoma and AIS components. This is the first reported case of endocervical type colloid carcinoma, and the second documented case of cervical colloid carcinoma with immunohistochemical analyses of mucin. The present case had an endocervical type AIS component, which suggests that AIS may be a precursor lesion of colloid carcinoma. Moreover, this case clearly demonstrates that the occurrence of cervical colloid carcinoma correlates with high-risk human papillomavirus.

    ABSTRACT: Pathological complete remission of advanced stage rectal adenocarcinoma by chemotherapy alone is rare. A case of advanced stage, low-lying rectal adenocarcinoma in which a complete response to treatment was obtained with mFOLFOX6 and panitumumab (Pmab) is reported. A 53-year-old man was referred to Shiga University of Medical Science hospital Shiga, Japan, complaining of bloody stool. Gastrointestinal endoscopy was performed, and advanced stage rectal adenocarcinoma was diagnosed. Computed tomography (CT) revealed regional lymph node metastases in the mesorectum. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) with mFOLFOX6 and Pmab was planned.Endoscopy following four courses of chemotherapy revealed that the rectal cancer had been markedly reduced, and the results of biopsies of the rectal tumor were negative for cancer. On CT, the mesorectal lymph node metastases had disappeared. Total intersphincteric resection (ISR) with a handsewn coloanal anastomosis was performed. Histological examination showed a complete response to mFOLFOX6 and Pmab in advanced stage rectal cancer. The result seen in this case suggests that short-term NAC with mFOLFOX6 and Pmab was effective for low-lying rectal adenocarcinoma.

    ABSTRACT: Some patients who undergo curative gastrectomy with lymph node dissection (LND) for gastric cancer (GC) show subsequent peritoneal metastasis. The source of these metastatic cells remains unclear. Curative gastrectomy with LND was performed in 102 patients with GC. Peritoneal washing was collected before and after gastrectomy. Cytology, reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction, and cell culture were used to determine the presence of cancer cells. The proliferative potential of tumor cells was evaluated using Ki-67 staining. Tumorigenic capacity was assessed by cell injection into the peritoneal cavity of NOD/ShiJic-scid mice. Peritoneal recurrence-free survival (RFS) and peritoneal recurrence rate (RR) were examined to determine the clinical relevance of detected cancer cells. Of 102 peritoneal washing samples obtained before gastrectomy, 57 showed no CEA or CK20 mRNA amplification. After gastrectomy, CEA or CK20 mRNA was detected in 35 of these 57 samples, and viable cancer cells were identified in 24. The viable cancer cells in all 24 cases showed Ki-67 positivity, indicating proliferative activity. Cultured viable cancer cells generated peritoneal nodules after spilling over the peritoneal cavity in NOD/ShiJic-scid mice in 4 cases. The peritoneal RFS of patients with CEA or CK20 mRNA amplification after gastrectomy was significantly poorer than that of patients with negative amplification (p < .05). The 24 patients with viable cancer cells in the peritoneal cavity after gastrectomy showed higher peritoneal RR than those without them (p = .033). Viable tumorigenic cancer cells spilled into the peritoneal cavity during surgery, indicating that surgery induces peritoneal metastasis.

    ABSTRACT: Median raphe cyst is a rare lesion located on the median raphe. The cyst wall is lined by cuboidal to columnar cells, transitional (urothelial) cells, stratified squamous cells or a mixture of these. The normal urethral mucosa and the median raphe cyst usually lack melanocytes and/or melanin pigment. However, albeit extremely rare, the presence of melanin pigment and/or melanocytes in median raphe cyst, namely pigmented median raphe cyst, has been previously reported. The current case report presents the sixth case of pigmented median raphe cyst and discusses the possible mechanism of melanocytic colonization in this tumor. A 48-year-old male presented with a nodule on the ventral surface of the penis. Histopathological study revealed that the cyst wall was covered by uniform bland cuboidal to urothelial cells. The peculiar observation was the presence of dendritic melanocytes among the epithelial cells. Therefore, a diagnosis of pigmented median raphe cyst was determined. Immunohistochemically, stem cell factor and endothelin-1 were not expressed in the epithelial cells of the cyst wall. It is well-known that melanocytes are rarely found in various non-melanocytic tumors, a phenomenon termed 'colonization'. The mechanism by which melanocytes appear in median raphe cyst remains unclear. The present report is the first to demonstrate that melanocytic proliferation and differentiation factors, such as stem cell factor and endothelin-1, are not involved in the pigmentation of median raphe cyst. In addition, aberrant melanocytic migration may contribute to the development of this type of lesion.

    ABSTRACT: The occurrence of small cell carcinoma in the urinary bladder and prostate is rare. Only a few reports on the cytological features of small cell carcinoma of the urinary bladder in the urine specimen have been documented and, moreover, the urinary cytological features of prostate small cell carcinoma have been rarely reported. In this study, we analyzed the cytological features of four cases of small cell carcinoma of the urinary bladder and prostate, and discussed the usefulness of cytological examination of urine specimen for this type of tumor. This study included two urinary bladder and two prostate small cell carcinoma cases. Analyses of the cytological features of these cases revealed the following: i) the background was mostly inflammatory and necrotic material was also occasionally observed; ii) numerous tumor cells were present in two cases, whereas only a few neoplastic cells were observed in the remaining cases; iii) the neoplastic cells were small in size, had scant cytoplasm and a high nuclear/cytoplasmic ratio, and were arranged in small clusters or occasionally as single cells; iv) the tumor cell clusters showed prominent nuclear moldings; and v) the nuclei of the neoplastic cells were round to oval in shape with finely granular chromatin containing inconspicuous nucleoli. The cytological features of small cell carcinoma in the urine specimen are characteristic. Therefore, careful observation of the urine specimen may lead to a correct diagnosis of small cell carcinoma of the urinary bladder and, moreover, cytodiagnosis of prostate small cell carcinoma may also be possible.

    ABSTRACT: Male breast carcinoma is an uncommon neoplasm, accounting for 0.6% of all breast carcinomas. Invasive ductal carcinoma of no special type is the most common type of male breast carcinoma, and mucinous carcinoma occurring in the male breast is extremely rare. In the present study, we report a case of mucinous carcinoma of the male breast and discuss the clinicopathological features of this type of tumor. A 63-year-old Japanese male presented with a gradually enlarged nodule in the right breast. The resected breast specimen revealed pure mucinous carcinoma and immunohistochemical analyses demonstrated that tumor cells were positive for estrogen receptor (ER), but negative for progesterone receptor (PgR). In addition, HER2 expression was not amplified. Pure mucinous carcinoma is generally associated with a low incidence of lymph node or distant metastases, and excellent disease-free survival in females. However, certain cases of this type of tumor with axillary lymph node metastasis in the male breast have been reported. In addition, the immunoprofiles of mucinous carcinoma in males are fundamentally the same as those in females. More than 90% of cases show positive immunoreactivity for ER and/or PgR, and HER2 expression is not amplified. However, it has been reported that breast cancer in males is more frequently positive for ER than in females, and has less HER2 overexpression. The high rate of hormone receptor-positive breast cancer in males is considered to be due to similar conditions as those in breast cancer in postmenopausal women. The pathogenesis of male breast carcinoma, including mucinous carcinoma, remains unclear; therefore, additional clinicopathological studies are required.

    ABSTRACT: Signet-ring cell melanoma is an extremely rare variant of malignant melanoma. A 68-year-old male presented with a black nodule on the left thigh. Histopathological examination revealed proliferation of sheet-like or variable-sized nests of atypical melanocytes. Neoplastic cells showing signet-ring cell appearance, characterized by the presence of eccentrically located enlarged nuclei and abundant pale cytoplasm, were also present. Immunohistochemically, the tumor cells were positive for S-100 protein, vimentin and Melan-A. Moreover, mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) pathway proteins were diffusely expressed. The current case report presents the 21st reported case of signet-ring cell melanoma. Analyses of the clinicopathological features revealed that this disease commonly affects middle-aged males and the presence of metastatic signet-ring cell melanoma with an unknown primary tumor. Immunohistochemical analyses of melanocytic markers have been useful for establishing the diagnosis of this type of disease, however, HMB-45 is occasionally found to be negative. In addition, the present case report is the first to analyze the expression of mTOR pathway proteins, which are central proteins involved in carcinogenesis and its inhibitor has been proposed as a therapeutic target for various types of tumor. Therefore, the mTOR inhibitor may also be a potential candidate for the treatment of this type of tumor.

    ABSTRACT: To evaluate the association between endometriosis and chronic endometritis. Endometrial specimens were obtained from 71 patients, 34 with endometriosis (endometriosis group) and 37 without endometriosis (non-endometriosis group), who underwent hysterectomy, and the specimens were immunostained for the plasmacyte marker CD138. The rate of chronic endometritis was compared between the endometriosis group and the non-endometriosis group. Furthermore, the 71 patients were also divided into two groups, 28 with chronic endometritis (chronic endometritis group) and 43 without chronic endometritis (non-chronic endometritis group). Logistic regression analysis was performed with variables including age, body mass index (BMI), gravidity and parity, and diagnoses of leiomyoma, adenomyosis, and endometriosis on pathology to examine the independent effect of each variable on chronic endometritis. Patients suffering from cervical invasive carcinoma, endometrial carcinoma, and endometrial polyps or treated with gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists, progestins, or oral contraceptives before surgery were excluded. Chronic endometritis was identified in 52.94% of the endometriosis group and 27.02% of the non-endometriosis group (p<0.05). Logistic regression analysis revealed that endometriosis was associated with chronic endometritis. This result suggests a strong association between endometriosis and chronic endometritis.
