Oncogenic osteomalacia (OO) is a rare paraneoplastic syndrome of osteomalacia due to phosphate wasting. The phosphaturic mesenchymal tumor (mixed connective tissue variant) (PMTMCT) is an extremely rare, distinctive tumor that is frequently associated with OO. Despite its association with OO, many PMTMCTs go unrecognized because they are erroneously(More)
The tumor described here as lipofibromatosis is a rare pediatric neoplasm that has been variously interpreted as a type of infantile or juvenile fibromatosis, a variant of fibrous hamartoma of infancy, and a fibrosing lipoblastoma. This report details the clinicopathologic features associated with 45 cases of this soft tissue entity. The study group(More)
We present a series of 16 salivary gland tumors with histomorphologic and immunohistochemical features reminiscent of secretory carcinoma of the breast. This is a hitherto undescribed and distinctive salivary gland neoplasm, with features resembling both salivary acinic cell carcinoma (AciCC) and low-grade cystadenocarcinoma, and displaying strong(More)
Long considered to be ectopic breast tissue representing the caudal remnants of the milk ridges, anogenital mammary-like glands are nowadays thought to represent a normal constituent of the anogenital area. Lesions involving these glands, benign or malignant, epithelial or stromal manifest a striking similarity to their mammary counterparts. This review(More)
High-grade transformation of acinic cell carcinoma (AciCC) (previously referred to as dedifferentiation) is a rare phenomenon characterized by histologic progression of low-grade AciCC to high-grade adenocarcinoma or undifferentiated carcinoma. We report 9 new cases with immunohistochemical analysis and examination of HER-2/neu and p53 genes to further(More)
Sir, mesenchymal tumors of the pancreas are exceedingly rare, accounting for less than 1% of all pancreatic tumors, and most of them have been reported in small series or as single case reports. This group of pancreatic tumors includes leiomyosarcoma, malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor, malignant fibrous histiocytoma, liposarcoma, rhabdomyosarcoma,(More)
Mammary analogue secretory carcinoma of salivary gland origin (MASC) is a recently described tumor resembling secretory carcinoma of the breast characterized by strong S-100 protein, mammaglobin, and vimentin immunoexpression and which harbors a t(12;15) (p13;q25) translocation resulting in ETV6-NTRK3 fusion product. Histologically, conventional MASC(More)
We describe a unique benign tumor of the kidney in a 93-year-old man. Microscopically the tumor was composed of an intimate intermixture of epithelial component and smooth muscle tissue, which formed the stroma of the tumor. In some parts the epithelial cells in adenomatous tubular formations were endowed with clear snouts. These clear snouts had a(More)
We describe three cases of sclerosing polycystic adenosis (SPA) of the parotid gland, a salivary condition analogous to fibrocystic disease of the breast. For the first time, immunoreactivity for oestrogen and progesterone receptors was demonstrated, suggesting a possible participation of hormone stimulation in its pathogenesis. In addition, all our cases(More)
We present a series of 23 cases of a distinctive, hitherto poorly recognized low-grade adenocarcinoma, with several histologic features reminiscent of papillary carcinoma of the thyroid, and which mostly but not exclusively occurs in the tongue. All the tumors were unencapsulated and were divided into lobules that were composed mainly of cribriform and(More)
