      Recurrent primary pleomorphic adenomas of salivary gland origin : Intrasurgical rupture, histopathologic features, and pseudopodia (pages 617–620)

      Gert Henriksson, Karl Magnus Westrin, Bengt Carlsöö and Claes Silfverswärd

      Version of Record online: 31 OCT 2000 | DOI: 10.1002/(SICI)1097-0142(19980215)82:4<617::AID-CNCR1>3.0.CO;2-I

      The rate of tumor recurrence after surgery for benign salivary gland pleomorphic adenoma varies considerably in different clinical settings. Occurrence of pseudopodia&#150;microscopic fingerlike formations of tumor tissue that extend beyond the main lump of the tumor&#150;was the only significant risk factor for recurrence in this study.

      The new, number-based classification of regional lymph node metastasis from gastric carcinoma (International Union Against Cancer/American Joint Committee on Cancer [UICC/AJCC] 1997) is superior to the former UICC/AJCC classification.

      In this study, the activated form of matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2) was detected in pancreatic carcinoma, chronic pancreatitis, and normal pancreatic tissue specimens by zymographic analysis. The activation of MMP-2 plays an important role in tumor invasion and metastasis in pancreatic carcinoma.

      K-ras mutations were more numerous in hyperplastic pancreatic ductal epithelia with sialo-type mucus than in epithelia with sulfo-type mucus. This mutation and mucous type were characteristic features of pancreatic carcinoma, which often may arise from ductal hyperplasia that shows these features.

      Primary ameloblastoma of the sinonasal tract : A clinicopathologic study of 24 cases (pages 667–674)

      Duane R. Schafer, Lester D. R. Thompson, Brion C. Smith and Bruce M. Wenig

      Version of Record online: 31 OCT 2000 | DOI: 10.1002/(SICI)1097-0142(19980215)82:4<667::AID-CNCR8>3.0.CO;2-I

      Primary sinonasal ameloblastomas are rare tumors with a predilection for older age men. Complete surgical excision is curative. Increased morbidity in the form of local recurrence is likely after incomplete resection. Histogenesis appears to be from totipotential cells of the sinonasal mucosal epithelium.

      Benign metastasizing chondroblastoma : A case report (pages 675–678)

      Metastasis of histologically benign chondroblastoma is a rare event. The authors report a new case, 12th in the literature, wherein multiple lung metastases appeared almost simultaneously with the primary lesion in the right talus bone. The purpose of this case report is not only to document this uncommon event but also to emphasize that patients with chondroblastoma may have metastasis at presentation.

      Rate of insufficient samples for fine-needle aspiration for nonpalpable breast lesions in a multicenter clinical trial : The Radiologic Diagnostic Oncology Group 5 Study (pages 679–688)

      Etta D. Pisano, Laurie L. Fajardo, John Tsimikas, Nour Sneige, William J. Frable, Constantine A. Gatsonis, W. Phil Evans, Irena Tocino and Barbara J. McNeil

      • original image

      Because of the high number of insufficient samples, fine-needle aspiration of nonpalpable breast lesions proved to be of limited clinical utility in the Radiologic Diagnostic Oncology Group 5 Study, a multicenter evaluation of this technique involving 377 patients enrolled at 18 institutions. Factors affecting the likelihood of insufficient samples in this trial are discussed. This trial was terminated early because of the high rate of insufficient samples.

      Vascular space involvement, as detected by immunostaining for factor VIII-related antigen rather than by hematoxylin and eosin staining, provides additional information on the prognosis of patients with clinical Stage IB carcinoma of the uterine cervix.

      Glutathione concentration may be a useful predictor of response to second-line chemotherapy in patients with ovarian cancer (pages 697–702)

      Second-line chemotherapy consisting of etoposide and cisplatin is effective in the treatment of relapsed epithelial ovarian cancer. In addition, tumor concentration of glutathione may be a useful predictor of the response to this therapy.

      Telomerase activity in cells from voided urine samples can detect the presence of bladder carcinoma. This has potential as a novel noninvasive method for the detection of human transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder.

      Invasion of the bladder by transitional cell carcinoma : Its relation to histologic grade and expression of p53, MIB-1, c-erb B-2, epidermal growth factor receptor, and bcl-2 (pages 715–723)

      Although histologic grade is the most important variable related to invasion of the bladder by transitional cell carcinoma, staining for MIB-1, bcl-2, p53, epidermal growth factor receptor, and c-erb B-2 adds information, and the results suggest that interactions among markers and between markers and grade may be more important to the biology of transitional cell carcinoma than any of these factors considered singly.

      Urokinase-type plasminogen activator, its inhibitor, and its receptor in patients with upper urinary tract carcinoma (pages 724–732)

      The authors examined the immunohistochemical expression of the plasminogen activator system (PAS) in patients with upper urinary tract carcinoma. Although some PAS parameters were found to be associated with high stage or high grade of the tumors, detection of an immunoreaction for PAS appears to be of little or no value in determining prognosis.

      Thyroid papillary carcinoma of columnar cell type is a distinct morphologic but not a distinct clinical type of thyroid papillary carcinoma. The treatment and prognosis of this tumor is similar to that for the usual types of papillary carcinoma. The presence of extrathyroidal extension represents the key prognostic indicator.

      The value of gallium imaging after therapy for hodgkin's disease (pages 754–759)

      Gallium-67 imaging was unreliable in defining disease remission after chemotherapy in patients with Hodgkin's disease. Patients with disease that remains gallium avid may still have a good prognosis after additional therapy.

      Young women treated for childhood cancer have a significantly increased risk of breast cancer compared with age-matched controls and should be taught breast self-examination as the foundation of breast cancer screening. In addition, breast self examination as well as clinical and mammographic screening should be instituted at a younger age and performed more frequently.
