Pericytic mimicry (extravascular migratory metastasis) in neoplasia

I read with interest the recent report by Shen and colleagues of pericytic mimicry in seven cases of well-differentiated liposarcoma [1]. The perivascular cells expressed a range of immunohistochemical pericytic markers and were confirmed to be neoplastic on MDM2 fluorescence in situ hybridisation and on MDM2 immunostaining.

BRAF mutations in sarcomatoid and large cell carcinoma of the lung

We read with interest the work by Forest et al. [1] that analyzed 35 sarcomatoid carcinoma (SC) of the lung for “targetable molecular mutations,” discovering among others a BRAF D594–mutated case. 22 more words

BRAF mutations in sarcomatoid and large cell carcinoma of the lung—reply

We read with great interest the report of Mengoli et al. in their Letter to the Editor. The authors describe a pleomorphic carcinoma of the lung with TTF-1–positive solid component and sarcomatoid component. 44 more words

Pericytic mimicry (extravascular migratory metastasis) in neoplasia—reply

Thank you for your interest in our manuscript, “Pericytic mimicry in well-differentiated liposarcoma/atypical lipomatous tumor” [1]. We recognize your contributions to the field of pericytic mimicry and share in your enthusiasm for this interesting phenomenon across diverse neoplasms, which include gynecologic carcinosarcomas. 6 more words

Comparative Immunomorphology of Testicular Sertoli and Sertoliform Tumors

Sertoli cell (SC) and sertoliform tumors of the testis are very uncommon; for this reason their differential diagnosis and classification can be challenging. We applied an extensive immunophenotypic panel that included androgenic hormones, enzymes and receptors, neuroendocrine, lineage and genitourinary markers to a series of these lesions to determine if and which immunostains can aid in their diagnostic workup. 35 more words
