  1. Synchronous adrenocortical neoplasms, paragangliomas, and pheochromocytomas: syndromic considerations regarding an unusual constellation of ...

    Human Pathology 45(12):2502 (2014) PMID 25288237

    We present a case of a young woman with synchronous paragangliomas, adrenal/extra-adrenal cortical neoplasms, and pheochromocytoma without genetic mutations for multiple endocrine neoplasia 2, Von Hippel-Lindau syndrome, neurofibromatosis, and succinate dehydrogenase. We speculate that this represen...
  2. Fatty acid synthase-associated protein with death domain: a prognostic factor for survival in patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma.

    Human Pathology 45(12):2447 (2014) PMID 25305096

    Fatty acid synthase-associated protein with death domain (FADD) is a key adaptor protein that bridges a death receptor (eg, death receptor 5) to caspase 8 to form the death-inducing signaling complex during apoptosis. The expression and prognostic impact of FADD in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) hav...
  3. Adenocarcinoma of the prostate with Gleason pattern 5 on core biopsy: frequency of diagnosis, morphologic subpatterns, and relation to patte...

    Human Pathology 45(11):2263 (2014) PMID 25228336

    We evaluated 1557 consecutive and prospectively collected NBXs to determine the frequency of diagnosis, morphologic subpatterns, and their relation to the amount and pattern distribution of GP5 PCa based on the 2005 modified Gleason grading system. Tertiary GP5 was upgraded to a secondary pattern to...
  4. Clinicopathological spectrum of kidney diseases in cancer patients treated with vascular endothelial growth factor inhibitors: a report of 5...

    Human Pathology 45(9):1918 (2014) PMID 25087655

    We present the spectrum of pathological features in VEGF inhibitor-associated kidney disease. Clinicopathological findings of kidney disease were retrospectively studied in 5 cancer patients treated with anti-VEGF agents. Although 4 cases received bevacizumab (anti-VEGF-A), one was given sorafenib (...
  5. GATA3 expression in small cell carcinoma of bladder and prostate and its potential role in determining primary tumor origin.

    Human Pathology 45(8):1682 (2014) PMID 24925221

    We here evaluate, for the first time, GATA3 expression in small cell carcinoma of bladder and prostate and assess its utility in the differential diagnosis with small cell carcinoma of lung primary. Archival tissues from 60 small cell carcinomas (12 bladder, 15 lung, and 33 prostate primary cases) w...
  6. Novel BCR-ABL1 fusion identified by targeted next-generation sequencing in a patient with an atypical myeloproliferative neoplasm.

    Human Pathology 45(8):1784 (2014) PMID 24927924

    An unusual case of a BCR-ABL1-positive myeloproliferative neoplasm is presented with discordant molecular and cytogenetic characterization at diagnosis. More extensive molecular characterization of the fusion messenger RNA transcript using a next-generation sequencing approach identified a novel BCR...
  7. An evaluation of Congo red fluorescence for the diagnosis of amyloidosis.

    Human Pathology 45(8):1766 (2014) PMID 24935061

    Congo red stain apple-green birefringence under polarized light is the most popular method for detecting amyloid; however, it has limitations. The goal of this study was to evaluate if examination of Congo red stain by fluorescent microscopy (FM) significantly enhances the diagnostic yield. Congo re...
  8. Mitochondrial tRNA mutations manifest not only as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy but also as noncompaction--reply.

    Human Pathology 45(8):1791 (2014) PMID 24938414

  9. A testing algorithm for detection of the B-type Raf kinase V600E mutation in papillary thyroid carcinoma.

    Human Pathology 45(7):1483 (2014) PMID 24745617

    We developed a testing algorithm for the BRAF mutation using BRAF immunohistochemistry (IHC) in PTC. Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded PTC tissues from 91 patients were immunostained with a BRAF V600E mutation-specific antibody. The immunostaining results were interpreted semiquantitatively by addin...
  10. Expression of PRMT5 in lung adenocarcinoma and its significance in epithelial-mesenchymal transition.

    Human Pathology 45(7):1397 (2014) PMID 24775604

    Although protein arginine methyltransferase 5 (PRMT5) has been implicated in various cancers, its expression pattern in lung adenocarcinoma cell lines and tissues has not been elucidated enough. In this study, microarray analysis of 40 non-small-cell lung carcinoma cell lines showed that PRMT5 was a...
