18 November 2022: Weekly Roundup #105

Here’s what you need to know about PathologyOutlines.com this week:

1. Stains and CD Markers

Adele has a great hit, ‘Rolling in the Deep‘, in which she sings, “We could have had it all”. But that is not true; life is about tradeoffs and we have to make the best deals or compromises that we can.

In that spirit, we are trimming the Stains & CD markers page to focus on those that are most popular or otherwise considered by our editors to be most important. We have removed some of the obscure / low traffic stains and we are no longer planning to update all CD markers. We have also put the low traffic / less important ones under CD markers – other, but we will not be updating them unless one of them becomes important.

Contact Nat@PathologyOutlines.com with any comments or questions.

2. Directory Image Contest

The Favorite Directory Image contest deadline has been extended to November 30, 2022. Visit pathologyoutlines.com/directorysignup.html to add a profile with your favorite image or pathologyoutlines.com/directorychange.html to add / change your favorite image on your existing profile.

10 November 2022: Textbook Updates

We have posted updates of the following topics:

CNS nontumor > Fungal infections > Aspergillosis
by Sameen Afzal, M.B.B.S, Mohammad Khurram Minhas, M.B.B.S.
Topic summary: Cerebral aspergillosis is an aggressive, rare form of invasive aspergillosis characterized by brain parenchymal or meningeal invasion by Aspergillus species; invasion of either brain parenchyma or meninges by septate, branching fungal hyphae of Aspergillus spp. with associated inflammatory reaction. Cerebral aspergillosis is a rare disease with poor prognosis and a high fatality rate. Cerebellar and brainstem involvement is a sign of poor prognosis. Antifungal therapy with voriconazole (triazoles) as first line therapy.

Oral cavity & oropharynx > Soft tissue tumors & proliferations > Peripheral ossifying fibroma
by Timothy Fielder, M.B.B.S., B.Med.Sci., Ruta Gupta, M.D.
Topic summary: Reactive gingival proliferation characterized by spindle cell proliferation with calcification or ossification within gingival connective tissue. Epidemiology: Can occur at any age, reports range from 2 months to 87 years. Recurrence is more likely if offending irritant is not removed. Treatment: Surgical excision or removal of irritants including plaque / calculus or poorly fitted prosthetics. Diagnosis: Readily diagnosed histologically with high interobserver concordance.

Larynx, hypopharynx & trachea > General > Staging-hypopharynx
by Kelly Magliocca, D.D.S., M.P.H.
Topic summary: All carcinomas of the hypopharynx are covered by this staging system. Hypopharynx is the portion of the pharynx extending from the plane of the superior border of the hyoid bone (or floor of the vallecula) to the plane corresponding to the lower border of the cricoid cartilage. Contents include: Pyriform sinus (right and left), lateral and posterior hypopharyngeal walls, postcricoid region, extending from the level of the arytenoid cartilage and connecting folds to the inferior border of the cricoid cartilage.

Prostate gland & seminal vesicles > Acinar / ductal adenocarcinomas > Ductal adenocarcinoma
by Sarah Findeis, M.D., He Huang, M.D., Ph.D.
Topic summary: Rare subtype of prostatic carcinoma composed of large glands lined by tall columnar cells with pseudostratified nuclei. Frequently mixed with acinar adenocarcinoma. Epidemiology: Accounts for 3.2% of all prostate cancers. Similar mortality rate to acinar carcinoma with Gleason score of 8 – 10. Treatment: Hormonal therapy, radiation or surgery; tends to have a worse outcome compared to prostatic acinar adenocarcinoma.
