Article
We present a series of 18 (8 clinically benign, 8 clinically ambiguous [ie, lacking sufficient follow-up to determine behavior], and 2 clinically malignant) large cell calcifying Sertoli cell tumors (LCCSCT) of the testis. The median patient age and size were 15.5 years and 1.9 cm for the benign tumors; 19 years and 1.6 cm for the ambiguous tumors;...

Objective Immature CD11b⁺Gr1⁺ myeloid cells that acquire immunosuppressive capability, also known as myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs), are a heterogeneous population of cells that regulate immune responses. Our study's objective was to elucidate the role of ovarian cancer microenvironment in regulating the immunosuppressive function of CD11...
Article
Background: The current risk stratification systems used to guide management of endometrial cancer are based on irreproducible post surgical pathological information, hence the need for more reliable classification systems. Using microarray and sequencing technologies, TCGA recently identified four prognostically significant endometrial carcinoma...

Pathologic complete response is an exceptionally rare occurrence in prostate cancer, especially in the setting of poorly differentiated cancer, with high risk and poor prognostic features. Patient reviewed and signed an informed consent. The case details were collected. Patient had PSA of 52.6 ng/dl and Gleason score 5 + 5 = 10 prostate adenocarcin...

Introduction: Histologic transformation from non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) to small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is a well-recognized mechanism of resistance in EGFR-mutant adenocarcinoma upon treatment with TKIs, but rarely reported with programmed death1 (PD-1) inhibitors. We report two cases of potential transformation during treatment with PD-...

Background: Fibroadenomas are common benign breast lesions, and studies of European American women indicate a persistent, increased risk of breast cancer after diagnosing a fibroadenoma on biopsy. This association has not been independently assessed in African American women, despite reports that these women are more likely to present with fibroad...

Uterine carcinosarcomas are rare aggressive biphasic neoplasms. Because of its rarity, limited data are available on potential prognostic parameters. While several studies support that carcinomatous components predict outcomes, others do not. In this study, we evaluated the clinical and histopathologic features of 196 uterine carcinosarcomas to ide...
Article
Background and objectives: To examine association of lympho-vascular space invasion (LVSI) with clinico-pathological factors and to evaluate survival of women with low-grade serous ovarian carcinoma containing areas of LVSI. Methods: This is a multicenter retrospective study examining consecutive cases of surgically treated stage I-IV low-grade...
Article
Objectives: Clear cell carcinoma (CCC) comprises a rare yet an aggressive subtype, accounting for less than 5% of all uterine carcinomas. Several clinicopathologic features have been predictive of poor prognosis; however, data remain controversial. The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinicopathologic features of a multi-institutional cohort...
Article
Introduction: The majority of the 1.6 million breast biopsies performed annually in the United States are benign; however, several breast cancer risk models consider a benign biopsy a factor that increases risk of subsequent breast cancer. Fibroadenomas (FA), benign tumors of epithelial and stromal tissue, occur frequently in premenopausal women an...
Conference Paper
Introduction: Atypical hyperplasia (also known as proliferative disease with atypia), while categorized as a benign finding, has been consistently associated with an increased risk of subsequent breast cancer that persists for decades after initial diagnosis. There are various other lesions that are classified as benign breast disease (BBD) that ar...
Conference Paper
Introduction: Most clinical models to estimate risk of invasive breast cancer include history of benign breast disease (BBD) as a covariate, as these women represent a higher risk group compared to the general population. A better understanding of the association between BBD and breast cancer is necessary to improve the utility of these risk models...
Article
Endometrial carcinomas (ECs) are the most common gynecologic cancers in the western world. The impact of androgen receptor (AR) on clinicopathologic parameters of EC is not well studied. The aim of our study is to assess the role of AR expression in ECs and correlate its expression with estrogen (ER) and progesterone (PR). A retrospective review of...
Article
Paratesticular liposarcomas are relatively common sarcomas in the paratesticular region, however, the myxoid variant; myxoid liposarcoma (MLS) is considered very rare. MLS peaks around the fourth-fifth decade. Herein, we describe a case of paratesticular MLS occurring in a 19-year-old African American male who underwent resection of a slowly growin...

Dermatofibrosarcoma Protuberans (DFSP) represents a low grade, locally aggressive mesenchymal neoplasm with characteristic clinicopathologic, immunohistochemical, and molecular findings. Myxoid DFSP is an uncommon variant, with only few cases reported in the literature and may present a diagnostic challenge on histopathologic examination. We report...
Article
Granulosa cell tumors (GCTs) comprise 2% to 5% of ovarian neoplasms, with unpredictable patterns of recurrence. The HER family, GATA4, and SMAD3 genes are reportedly involved in GCT proliferation and apoptosis and may serve as new predictors of recurrence. The aim of the study was to evaluate novel predictors of recurrence in GCT from a large singl...

Myoepithelial carcinoma (MC) is a rare tumor that arises from myoepithelial cells; most commonly in the salivary glands, but other infrequent body sites such as the breast, lung, lower limb, upper limb, head and neck, vulva, and vagina can be involved. We report the first case of myoepithelial carcinoma arising in the posterior mediastinum of a 51y...
Article
Proceedings: AACR 107th Annual Meeting 2016; April 16-20, 2016; New Orleans, LA Introduction: Benign breast disease (BBD) is an established risk factor for developing breast cancer, and certain pathologic features in benign breast tissue are more strongly associated with breast cancer risk. Most of the studies evaluating BBD and breast cancer risk...
Article
An estimated 1.6 million breast biopsies are performed annually in the United States, and the vast majority are benign. Benign breast disease is an established breast cancer risk factor for both Caucasian and African American women. Yet little is still known about benign breast tissue from African American women, who suffer from disproportionately...

Context: -Low interobserver diagnostic agreement exists among high-grade endometrial carcinomas. Objective: -To evaluate diagnostic variability in International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) grade 3 endometrioid adenocarcinoma (G3EC) in 2 different sign-out practices. Design: -Sixty-six G3EC cases were identified from patholog...
Article
Introduction: A history of benign breast disease (BBD) is common and certain established pathologic features are associated with increased breast cancer risk. These associations have been reported primarily from studies of white women, where incidence of BBD peaks in the 4th or 5th decade of life. Previous work in an African American (AA) cohort of...
Article
The incidence of endometrial cancers diagnosed on biopsy that have no residual cancer identified at hysterectomy is not well studied. The aim of our study was to determine the incidence and long-term follow-up of this "vanishing cancer" phenomenon. All slides from the initial biopsy/curettage and hysterectomy specimens were reviewed and the diagnos...

Objective Endometrial cancer mortality disproportionately affects black women and whether greater prevalence of obesity plays a role in this disparity is unknown. We examine the effect of race on post-surgical complications, length of stay, and mortality specifically in a morbidly obese population. Methods Black and white women with endometrial ca...
