A case report of malignant primary pericardial mesothelioma with atypical imaging appearance: multimodality imaging with histopathological correlation.

European Heart Journal 2020 February 27 [Link] Banišauskaitė A, Jankauskas A, Šarauskas V, Aržanauskaitė M Abstract BACKGROUND :Primary pericardial mesothelioma is a rare primary cardiac malignancy, with three main histopathological types, sarcomatoid histotype being the rarest. The imaging features were atypical due to concomitant extensive calcification, which resulted in aggravated differential diagnosis. CASE SUMMARY :A 45-year-old man […]

Malignant mesothelioma following repeated exposures to cosmetic talc: A case series of 75 patients.

American Journal of Industrial Medicine 2020 March 16 [Link] Emory TS, Maddox JC, Kradin RL Abstract BACKGROUND: Asbestos is the primary known cause of malignant mesothelioma. Some cosmetic talc products have been shown to contain asbestos. Recently, repeated exposures to cosmetic talc have been implicated as a cause of mesothelioma. METHODS: Seventy-five individuals (64 females; […]

Malignant mesothelioma: A histomorphological and immunohistochemical study of 24 cases from a tertiary care hospital in Southern India.

Indian Journal of Cancer 2018 April-June [Link] Hui M, Uppin SG, Bhaskar K, Kumar NN, Paramjyothi GK Abstract BACKGROUND: Malignant mesotheliomas are histologically heterogeneous neoplasms. Definite diagnosis requires a varied panel of immunohistochemical (IHC) markers to differentiate these from histological mimics. Only a few case series have been reported in the Indian literature where mesotheliomas […]

Treatment and Outcomes of Primary Pericardial Mesothelioma: A Contemporary Review of 103 Published Cases.

Clinical Lung Cancer 2018 November 29 [Link] McGehee E, Gerber DE, Reisch J, Dowell JE Abstract Primary pericardial mesothelioma (PPM) is a rare cancer for which there is no consensus on treatment. We evaluated and summarized a large contemporary population of published PPM cases to characterize risk factors, treatment patterns, and clinical outcomes. Using Ovid […]

Ancillary studies in pleural, pericardial, and peritoneal effusion cytology.

Cancer Cytopathology 2018 August [Link] Sundling KE, Cibas ES Abstract Pleural, pericardial, and peritoneal effusion specimens present diagnostic challenges and clinical opportunities for cytology. For the patient, these specimens may be the first diagnosis of malignancy or the first sign of disease recurrence. This review aims to provide useful approaches with which to resolve key […]
