• Cancer
  • Signs and symptoms of a cancer causing a paraneoplastic syndrome result from the release of humoral factors such as hormones, cytokines, or immunoglobulins by the syndrome's neoplastic cells and/or the response of the immune system to the neoplasm. (wikipedia.org)
  • lung
  • Acinic cell carcinoma of the lung is a very rare malignant neoplasm originating from bronchial glands. (wikipedia.org)
  • World Health Organization Histological Classification of Lung and Pleural Tumours. (wikipedia.org)
  • Lung cancers are now considered a large and extremely heterogeneous family of neoplasms that feature widely varying genetic, biological, and clinical characteristics. (wikipedia.org)
  • Microscopic characteristics of rhabdoid cells include: Oval to polygonal cell shape Eosinophilic, hyaline-like perinuclear agglomerations of intermediate filaments Compressed, eccentric nuclei Prominent central macronucleoli (one or two) Abundant eosinophilic cytoplasm Reticular chromatin pattern The differential diagnosis of LCLC-RP includes secondary metastatic lesions, melignant melanoma of the lung with rhabdoid phenotype, mucinous adenocarcinomas (particularly those featuring signet-ring cells), rhabdomyosarcoma, epitheloid angiosarcoma, pleural mesothelioma, and plasmacytoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • When the pleural membranes are punctured, as occurs in penetrating trauma of the chest, air may travel from the lung to the muscles and subcutaneous tissue of the chest wall. (wikipedia.org)
  • mesothelioma
  • Parole chiave: mesotelioma, chirurgia, chirurgia delle neoplasie pleuriche, pneumonectomia, pleura Introduction Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is considered today no longer an uncommon pathology: 800 to 1000 new cases/year are expected in Italy until 2020 and, in particular areas, this is the highest rate in the world 1.

  • rare
  • The whorled eosinophilic inclusions in LCLC-RP cells give it a microscopic resemblance to malignant cells found in rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS), a rare neoplasm arising from transformed skeletal muscle. (wikipedia.org)
