1/16. The ultrastructure of a poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma of the human tuba uterina.

    A poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma of the human oviduct was studied by light and transmission electron microscopy. cells contained abundant mitochondria, bound and free ribosomes, prominent Golgi's bodies and aggregates of membrane-bound dense bodies. The small glandular lumina with numerous microvilli were generally devoid of cilia and contained secretory material. The neoplasm was ultrastructurally similar to poorly differentiated ovarian serous carcinomas.

2/16. Papillary-cystic variant of acinic cell carcinoma of the salivary gland diagnosed by fine needle aspiration biopsy. A case report.

    BACKGROUND: Fine needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy is reliably used to classify most conditions involving the salivary glands. It is useful for establishing, or at least suggesting, the diagnosis in unusual cases or narrowing the differential diagnosis. CASE: A 25-year-old male presented with a slowly enlarging mass of the left parotid. FNA biopsy of the parotid gland was performed, and a diagnosis of papillary-cystic variant of acinic cell carcinoma was suggested. The patient underwent incomplete resection of the lesion, which was interpreted as acinic cell carcinoma. CONCLUSION: Papillary-cystic variant of acinic cell carcinoma is rarely seen, especially in young people. FNA biopsy is a useful diagnostic procedure that can help diagnose this relatively uncommon type of salivary gland neoplasm and guide its management.

3/16. Biliary cystadenocarcinoma with two types of tumour cells.

    We report a rare case of biliary cystadenocarcinoma that occurred in the left hepatic lobe of a 62-year-old man and measured 20 cm in its greatest dimension. The neoplastic epithelium consisted of two types of cells: (1) cells with clear cytoplasm containing abundant mucin, and (2) cells with eosinophilic cytoplasm, which in some areas formed nodules with hepatocytoid features (polygonal cell shape, large nuclei with prominent nucleoli, and pseudoglandular structures). Histochemical stains revealed the presence of cytoplasmic mucin in the hepatocytoid areas, whereas immunohistochemical stains clearly showed a biliary phenotype (diffuse positive staining for "biliary type" cytokeratins, rare foci of positive staining with antibody to human hepatocytes (HEP-PAR1), absence of staining for alpha-fetoprotein, and no evidence of canalicular pattern of staining with polyclonal antibody to carcinoembryonic antigen). These findings indicate that areas reminiscent of hepatocellular carcinoma may occur in biliary cystadenocarcinomas. Histochemical and immunohistochemical stains are useful in reaching a definitive diagnosis in such cases.

4/16. Primary cystadenocarcinoma of the lacrimal gland.

    PURPOSE: To report a patient with a cystadenocarcinoma of the lacrimal gland, a tumor not previously described in the ophthalmic literature. Salivary gland cystadenocarcinomas constitute a distinct group of epithelial malignancies characterized by an invasive, predominantly cystic pattern of growth that have an indolent behavior and a low incidence of metastases and recurrences. DESIGN: Single interventional case report. methods: The clinical findings, results of imaging studies, and pathologic findings are presented. RESULTS: A 67-year-old man presented with a 5-year history of ptosis in the right upper eyelid. A lacrimal fossa tumor was found. The tumor was excised with an intact capsule, and the histopathologic diagnosis was primary cystadenocarcinoma of the lacrimal gland. The patient received no other form of treatment and has been observed for 1 year without evidence of recurrence or metastatic disease. CONCLUSIONS: Until recently, primary adenocarcinomas of the lacrimal gland were not further subclassified. Current knowledge gained from salivary gland tumors indicates that primary adenocarcinoma encompasses a group of tumors with separate morphologic features and varied biologic behavior.

5/16. Papillary serous adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix: a report of three cases.

    Three cases of primary papillary serous adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix, the first described in detail at this site, are reported. Two women, 32 and 33 years of age, presented with postcoital spotting. The third patient, a 69-year-old asymptomatic woman, had abnormal cells on a routine cervical Papanicolaou smear. There was no evidence of extracervical spread on physical examination in any of the cases, but computed tomographic scan of the abdomen revealed retroperitoneal lymphadenopathy in one patient. Two patients, one treated by preoperative radiation and cervicectomy and the other by radical hysterectomy and postoperative radiation, are alive and well 5 years later. The third patient underwent cone biopsy and is currently completing chemotherapy to be followed by radiation therapy. On gross examination, the tumors were indistinguishable from typical endocervical adenocarcinoma. Microscopic examination revealed high-grade papillary serous adenocarcinoma in each case; in one tumor, there was a minor admixed component of low-grade villoglandular papillary adenocarcinoma. Although none of the tumors was deeply invasive, pelvic nodal metastases were present in two cases. There was no evidence of endometrial, tubal, ovarian, or peritoneal tumor in any case. Papillary serous carcinomas should be distinguished from other papillary carcinomas of the cervix, particularly the recently described low-grade papillary villoglandular adenocarcinoma, a variant of endocervical adenocarcinoma with a good prognosis.

7/16. Surgical reversal of a subacute complete unilateral visual loss from an ovarian metastasis to the pituitary gland.

    A 56-year-old woman with ovarian papillary cystadenocarcinoma that metastasized to the pituitary gland sought treatment with a 7-day history of total loss of vision in one eye. Ten days after transsphenoidal tumor resection, the patient's vision suddenly returned to baseline. This unusual case indicates that surgical decompression of the optic nerve and chiasm can completely salvage vision, even after prolonged total visual loss.

8/16. Low-grade salivary duct carcinoma: description of 16 cases.

    Low-grade salivary duct carcinoma is a rare neoplasm. We report on 16 patients, with a median age of 64 years. All but one tumor arose from the parotid gland, including one tumor that arose in an intraparotid lymph node; one arose in the submandibular gland. Tumors consist of single to multiple dominant cysts, accompanied by adjacent intraductal proliferation. cysts are lined by small, multilayered, proliferating, bland ductal cells with finely dispersed chromatin and small nucleoli. Separate, smaller ductal structures are variably filled by proliferating ductal epithelium with cribriform, micropapillary, and solid areas. The overall appearance is very similar to breast atypical ductal hyperplasia and low-grade ductal carcinoma in situ. Foci of definitive stromal invasion were seen in four tumors. Two tumors demonstrated transition from low- to intermediate- or high-grade cytology, with scattered mitotic figures and focal necrosis. S-100 revealed diffuse strong expression in all 9 cases studied. Myoepithelial markers (calponin) highlighted supportive myoepithelial cells rimming the cystic spaces, confirming the intraductal nature of most, or all, of six tumors studied. Nine tumors studied for Her2-neu antigen were uniformly negative. Follow-up was obtained on 13 of our 16 patients. All patients were disease-free after surgery 6 to 132 months (median 30 months). Low-grade salivary duct carcinoma is a low-grade neoplasm with an excellent prognosis; it may be treated by conservative but complete resection. Its resemblance to atypical breast ductal hyperplasia, or micropapillary/cribriform intraductal carcinoma, distinguishes it from high-grade salivary duct carcinoma, papillocystic acinic cell carcinoma, and cystadenocarcinoma.

9/16. Left trisegmentectomy and combined resection of the inferior vena cava, without reconstruction, for giant cystadenocarcinoma of the liver.

    A 54-year-old woman with giant liver cystadenocarcinoma underwent left trisegmentectomy with combined resection of the inferior vena cava (IVC) and the right hepatic vein. As a result, only the right inferior hepatic vein was preserved as a drainage vein. Because the perivertebral plexus and the azygos vein were both well developed, neither veno-venous bypass nor IVC reconstruction was performed. The developed collateral veins acted as the venous drainage pathway to maintain a stable systemic circulation. On the seventh postoperative day, portal vein flow dramatically decreased and the patient tended to liver failure. Prostaglandin E(1) (PGE(1)) was administrated via the superior mesenteric artery. The portal flow then gradually increased and liver failure was avoided. Six months after the operation, she was re-admitted due to obstructive jaundice and presented with complete stenosis of the common bile duct (CBD). The jaundice persisted and liver dysfunction progressed. The patient died seven months after the operation. The confluence of the right inferior vein and the IVC could have been deformed, causing outflow blockade. The intrinsic shunt was not good enough to act as the drainage pathway, and IVC reconstruction may have been needed.

10/16. cystadenocarcinoma of salivary gland presenting as a cystic lesion in the mandible.

    cystadenocarcinoma is a rare salivary neoplasm. It occurs in major and minor salivary glands and usually has a good prognosis. Mandibular involvement by salivary gland tumors at presentation is exceptionally rare. We present the first case, to our knowledge, of salivary gland cystadenocarcinoma appearing as a cystic lesion in the mandible.
