1. How do we tell primary lung cancer from metastatic cancers from other sites?

It’s correct to say we should use all available clinical, radiologic and pathologic information, but that’s too vague to be helpful in a practical sense.

Here I offer some tips. #tweetorial
2. This #pathtweetorial is applicable mainly to #pulmpath . The principles in each organ are different. A carcinoma in a lymph node is a metastasis by definition. Not so in lung or colon.

IMHO it’s a mistake to approach a carcinoma in the lung as carcinoma of unknown primary
3. Most metastatic carcinomas to the lung occur after the primary carcinoma has already been diagnosed in another site.

💥Clinicians: give your pathologists this information! If you don’t, this is substandard, dangerous patient care.

First question. When PD-1 on T cells binds PD-L1 on tumor cells, what happens to the T cells?
3/
The correct answer is that the binding of PD-1 to PD-L1 INHIBITS T cell killing of tumor cells.

A mini case: sections from the wall of the gallbladder with the following histology...spot diagnosis 🎯
Questions in the thread...
#pathology #IHCpath
Q1: How do you interpret the p53 IHC stain? (hint: if you say "positive" then I failed as a teacher 😀😱)
Q2: In what other instances do you perform a p53 IHC?
It turns out that it is not a clear cut case in the provided pictures...AIS extending in Rokitansky-Aschoff sinuses has to be considered... not a gallbladder guy 😀 At the same time I would have a hard time signing out an AIS extending in RA sinuses diagnosis...

30♀️ posterior chest wall mass. Good example of this entity. IHC in next tweet. #dermpath #pathology
#IHCpath: CD4 is also a myelomonocytic marker, so weak staining is expected in macrophages. Only strong CD4 positivity is counted as genuine for T-cells.
Full #IHCpath:
➕ Pan T-cell markers (CD3, CD2, CD5, CD7), CD8, perforin, TIA, beta-F1 (TCR beta)
➖ CD4 CD30 CD56

Tweetorial on carcinoid tumor of the lung. I’ll add to it little by little every week 😊

#pathology #pulmpath

1/
Carcinoid tumor is the lower grade end of the spectrum of neuroendocrine tumors in the lung.

Caution: lung terminology is different from GI tract terminology
2/
In the lung, the terminology is
✴️ Typical carcinoid tumor
✴️ Atypical carcinoid tumor
✴️ Small cell carcinoma
✴️ Large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma

We don’t terms such as “well differentiated NET” because...this is #pulmpath and we are special 😜
3/
Carcinoid tumors are very similar on H&E to low grade NE tumors in the GI tract or pancreas. Nesting, odd patterns, bland cytology, granular chromatin (“salt and pepper”)
