AbstractAbstract PDF
The epithelial mesenchymal transition (EMT) is intimately associated with tumor hypoxia. The present study was conducted to investigate the immunohistochemical relationship between hypoxic and EMT-related molecules in non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC).
Immunohistochemical staining for hypoxia inducible factor (HIF)-1alpha, carbonic anhydrase (CA) IX, TWIST, and E-cadherin proteins was performed in 146 cases of NSCLC (80 cases of adenocarcinoma and 66 cases of squamous cell carcinoma) using tissue microarray blocks.
HIF-1alpha, TWIST, CA IX, and E-cadherin were expressed in 58 (40%), 90 (62%), 82 (56%), and 36 (25%) of 146 NSCLC cases, respectively. TWIST expression was positively correlated with HIF-1alpha expression (p = 0.03) and inversely correlated with E-cadherin expression (p < 0.01). TWIST and CA IX expression were not significantly interrelated, but each showed a relationship with histological tumor grade. However, the expression of these molecules had no significant effect on clinical staging or patient survival.
Although TWIST expression was correlated positively with HIF-1alpha expression and inversely correlated with E-cadherin, HIF-1alpha expression was not associated with E-cadherin expression. However, considering the relationship between HIF-1alpha and TWIST expression, further studies should be performed to demonstrate the role of hypoxia-induced EMT in NSCLC.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Several studies have been conducted on the role of the p63 gene family in non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC). Nevertheless, the role of these genes in the development and progression of NSCLC remains controversial. This study was designed to examine the expression and clinicopathologic significance of the p63 family in NSCLC.
Immunohistochemical staining was performed on 92 cases of NSCLC (47 squamous cell carcinomas [SqCCs] and 45 adenocarcinomas [ACs]) using tissue microarray blocks. The results were analyzed and correlated with clinicopathologic data. RESULTS: The expression of delta Np63 (Delta Np63) was elevated in SqCC (39/47), but not in AC (2/45; p<0.01). Both p63 and Delta Np63 had high expression in 39 SqCCs; p63 and Delta Np63 also had a similar geomorphologic distribution in most positive tumors. The expression of Delta Np63 was correlated with histologic type, gender, pT stage, p53 expression, and p63 expression. pT and pN stages were independent factors in survival (p<0.05, respectively).
The major p63 isoform in NSCLC, Delta Np63, had a strong correlation with p53 and p63, and was exclusively expressed in SqCC. However, our findings suggest that Delta Np63 was not an independent prognostic factor for NSCLC.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Tumors of umbilical cord, especially angiomyxoma, are extremely rare lesions. To our knowledge, five cases of angiomyxoma have been reported previously in the umbilical cord. Sonography two weeks after the finding of an elevated serum alpha-fetoprotein, detected a mass of the umbilical cord in a 27-year-old multiparous woman at 18(+3) weeks gestation. Previous sonogram was normal (11 weeks gestational age). At 26 weeks, a premature female infant was delivered by induction and a mass was located in the region of placental insertion of the cord. Section through the mass revealed rubbery myxoid appearance. Microcopically, numerous small vascular channels with thin walls were embedded in loose myxoid matrix. A case of angiomyxoma of umbilical cord with elevation of serum alpha-fetoprotein is presented together with a review of the literature. We hope that this case will help define the natural history of primary angiomyxoma of umbilical cord.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Hemangioma of the kidney is a relatively uncommon tumor, which is most commonly located in the tip of the papilla. This lesion is usually small and has been found incidentally at postmorten examination. About 200 cases of renal hemangioma have been reported since Virchow's original report in 1876. In renal hemangioma, cavernous hemangioma is the most common type. They can create diagnostic problem for the clinician and the radiologist. We experienced a case of renal cavernous hemangioma in the medulla of the upper pole. The patient was a twenty-seven-year-old male who had gross hematuria and right flank pain. A nephrectomy was performed. An ill-defined mass, 4.5x3.0x1.5 cm, was observed around the pelvis. Microscopically, the tumor mass was hemangioma of the cavernous type.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Lipoma involving brain and spinal cord is a rare tumor that most commonly located in the midsagittal region. This lesion is usually asymptomatic and has been reported incidentally at postmortem examination. Recently, the CT scan establishes the diagnosis of intracranial lipoma on the basis of typical X-ray absorption and location. The authors experienced a case of intracranial lipoma of occipital lobes. The patient was 7 months-old male who had protruding mass on the occipital region after birth. The mass revealed an uncapsulated lipoma with foca cartilage formation. We report this case with brief review of literatures.

Acral lentiginous melanoma is a rare variant of malignant melanoma and is characterized by a lentiginous (radial) growth phase that evolves over months or years to a dermal (vertical) invasive stage. Clinical and pathological features were reviewed in 3 cases of acral lentiginous melanoma of the soles. The first case was a 59-year-old female. On gross examination, there was a black, nodular, round, and ulcerated mass, 1.5 x 1.5 cm, on the posterior portion of the left sole. This mass was accompanied by peripheral pigmented macules. Histologically, the macular lesion revealed the pattern of a lentiginous growth phase, with a diffuse hyperplasia of atypical melamocytes in the basal layer of the epidermis. In the vertical growth component, atypical melanocytes (predominantly spindle cell) infiltrated the dermis, showing level 3 invasion. The second case was a 47-year-old male. On gross examination, there was a dark brown to black, nodular, hemorrhagic and ulcerated mass, 7x7 cm, on the middle portion of the right sole. This mass grew radially into neighboring tissue. Histologically, the radial growth component revealed atypical melanocytes which were distributed in the basal portion of epidermis. In the vertical growth component, atypical melanocytes (spindle, round, or polygonal cells) infiltrated the dermis, showing level 4 invasion. The third case was a 87-year-old female. There was a formation of satellite pigmented macules, up to 2x0.5 cm, on the right sole. The color of macules was usually not uniform but was likely to be scattered radially, being grayish brown, bluish black, or black. Histologically, the peripheral, macular, hyperpigmented lesion revaled the pattern of a lentiginous growth phase. In the vertical growth component, atypical melanocytes (predominently polygonal cells) infiltrated the dermis, showing level 13 invasion.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Burkitt's lymphoma with a frankly leukemic picture is an extremely rare condition, and usually has a very acute course with a poor prognosis. The authors experienced two cases of Burkitt's lymphoma developed acute leukemia. The first case was 8 years-old boy who had rapidly growing large abdominal mass, which revealed typical Burkitt's lymphoma with characteristic "starrysky" pattern. The second case was 20 year old male who had not definite tumor mass. Their peripheral blood and bone marrow aspiration revealed acute leukemia with multiple vacuolated lymphoblast of Burkitt's type. We report these cases with brief review of literatures.
