The global landscape of molecular testing is rapidly changing, with the recent publication of the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC)/College of American Pathologists (CAP) guidelines and the ALK Atlas. The IASLC/CAP guidelines recommend that tumors from patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) be tested for ALK(More)
Four patients with synchronous breast cancer and lymphoma are described. In all cases, the lymphoma was an unexpected finding in the histopathology of the axillary lymph-node dissection. The diagnosis of synchronous malignancies poses challenges for both the diagnosing pathologist and the treating clinician.
We report two cases of atypical fibroxanthoma (AFX) that both had the previously unreported feature of neural invasion (one perineural and the other intraneural). AFXs recur in approximately 10% of cases but only rarely metastasize. Features associated with recurrence are inadequate excision and invasion into fat. Features associated with metastasis include(More)
INTRODUCTION We investigated whether a group of pathologists could reproducibly apply the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer/American Thoracic Society/European Respiratory Society (IASLC/ATS/ERS) classification for lung adenocarcinoma to a cohort of stage 1 tumors and whether this architectural classification and/or other parameters(More)
Granulocytic sarcoma is a rare manifestation of myeloid leukemia and is even rarer as a primary presentation. Granulocytic sarcoma may affect any organ and has many modes of presentation. Diagnosis by cytology is possible as long as the diagnosis is considered. Diagnosis by cytology of body cavity effusion fluid has rarely been described. We present an(More)
A 37-year-old patient with type 1 diabetes had been recently diagnosed with collagenous colitis (CC) after sigmoidoscopy. She rapidly progressed from a fortnight of watery diarrhoea, to a malabsorptive state with severe dehydration and acute kidney injury. This necessitated admission to an intensive care unit for emergency dialysis. She was subsequently(More)
We report the case of an incidental cardiac myxoma that was remarkable for the presence of extensive oncocytic change, a feature that has not be reported previously. The oncocytes most likely represent part of a spectrum of degenerative changes present in the tumor, but the possibility that they are neoplastic is also discussed.
UNLABELLED A papillary fibroelastoma is a rare, avascular, cardiac tumour that is often found incidentally using transthoracic echocardiography (TTE). Peripheral i.v. injection of a microbubble contrast agent is often used to characterize abnormal masses within the heart allowing further delineation of physical features, the area of attachment, and(More)
