Membranous type Basal Cell Adenoma (BCA).
🧨 Morphologically identical to cutaneous cylindroma, hence aka dermal analogue tumor.
🧨 This is a unique morphologic subtype that one should be aware of.
Why? Read below. #ENTpath
#pathology #pathboards #S&L 1/3
🧨 Because this particular subtype can be multifocal.
🧨 This can be associated with Brooke Spiegler syndrome, a rare AD disease caused by mutation of CYLD gene on chr 16.
🧨 This has a higher rate of local recurrence (25%) than other subtypes. 2/3
🧨 And this has high propensity for transformation into a basal cell adenocarcinoma.
🔬 Islands of basaloid cells surrounded by eosinophilic hyaline material, jigsaw puzzle like pattern & peripheral palisading.

Young lady with weakness and anemia.
Endoscopy – diffuse scalloping of the duodenal mucosa
Biopsy – Mucosal flattening
Crypt hyperplasia
Intraepithelial lymphocytosis.
IgA anti-tissue transglutaminase (anti-TTG) NEGATIVE.
So, is this not celiac disease (CD)?
#GIpath #pathboards ImageImageImageImage
High clinical suspicion for CD -check IgA levels
In IgA deficiency, IgA-TTG and IgA-EMA (anti-endomysial Ab) will be negative
Alternative tests - IgG-DGP (deaminated gliadin peptide)/ IgG TTG
HLA-DQ typing - HLA-DQ2 (~95% pts) and HLA-DQ8
#GIpath #pathboards
Lastly, here's the colon bx of this pt showing lymphocytic colitis pattern
Microscopic colitis is more prevalent in pts w/ CD
Pts w/ MC and CD often have more severe histologic features, may require steroid rx
Response of MC to gluten free diet is not known.

#Blooducation #TransfusionReaction
Yes, the histologic findings and clinical history is consistent with Transfusion-Related Acute Lung Injury (TRALI). Second to TACO, it is the most common cause of transfusion-related morbidities and fatalities. What causes it?
