BAP1 Loss is a Useful Adjunct to Distinguish Malignant Mesothelioma Including the Adenomatoid-like Variant From Benign Adenomatoid Tumors.
Applied Immunohistochemistry & Molecular Morphology 2019 January 11 [Link] Erber R, Warth A, Muley T, Hartmann A, Herpel E, Agaimy A Abstract Malignant mesothelioma (MM) can show areas closely mimicking reactive mesothelial proliferations or recapitulating benign adenomatoid tumors (ATs) making distinction on occasion impossible on morphologic ground alone, particularly in limited biopsy material. Recently, loss…Read More

Diagnostic Utility of Pleural Fluid Cell Block versus Pleural Biopsy Collected by Flex-Rigid Pleuroscopy for Malignant Pleural Disease: A Single Center Retrospective Analysis
PLoS One 2016 November 23 [Link] Miyoshi S, Sasada S, Izumo T, Matsumoto Y, Tsuchida T Abstract BACKGROUND: Some trials recently demonstrated the benefit of targeted treatment for malignant disease; therefore, adequate tissues are needed to detect the targeted gene. Pleural biopsy using flex-rigid pleuroscopy and pleural effusion cell block analysis are both useful for…Read More
