CONTEXT The lung is the most common site of metastasis during the natural history of malignant tumors. Breast carcinoma has a propensity for distant metastasis, and the lung and pleura are among the most common metastatic sites. Although it is often difficult to make a clear-cut differential diagnosis between the two, distinguishing primary lung carcinoma(More)
Few cases each of malignant pulmonary epithelioid hemangioendothelioma (PEH) and PEH with lymph node metastasis have been reported. Here we report a case of PEH with lymph node metastasis. A Japanese woman was found to have a 2-cm-diameter mass with small satellite nodules in the right upper lobe of the lung. Microscopic examination revealed solid(More)
OBJECTIVES Although fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) technology is adequate, demand exists for additional recycling and long-term storage of FISH slides. METHODS Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded slides derived from breast cancer cases were used for this study. Each slide was probed, and then procedures for removing probes were performed, such as(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with noninvasive, small-sized primary adenocarcinomas of the lung have excellent prognosis after lobectomy. Several researchers have suggested that limited resection could be an acceptable alternative for these patients. Therefore, a preoperative or intraoperative judgment of invasiveness would be one of the critical determinants of the(More)
Nuclear inclusion or pseudoinclusion is a peculiar cytological feature, and its recognition in appropriate clinicopathological settings can aid in the diagnosis of several disease entities. To the best of our knowledge, only 1 case of pulmonary neuroendocrine tumor (NET) with nuclear pseudoinclusion has been reported. A review of 227 patients who had(More)
Signet-ring cell carcinoma (SRCC) and goblet-cell-type adenocarcinoma (GCA) are mucin-producing lung adenocarcinomas. Primary SRCC shows an aggressive clinical course, whereas GCA shows infrequent distant metastasis, but more frequent intrapulmonary metastases resembling lobar pneumonia. To distinguish SRCC from GCA, this study investigated the respective(More)
BACKGROUND In this era of precision medicine, monitoring patients requires not only real time but also longitudinal sequence of samples at various time points. Based on this background, we focused on conditioned circumstances on fixation and storage for re-utilization of CTCs. MATERIALS Instead of actual CTCs, Cell line (H1975) derived from lung cancer(More)
Desmoplastic small round cell tumor (DSRCT) is a rare and aggressive neoplasm that predominantly affects young men. DSRCT often presents as multiple nodules on the serosal surface and is histologically categorized as a small round cell tumor. However, the cytological spectrum of DSRCT is not fully understood because of its rarity. Here, we report an unusual(More)
