The College of American Pathologists guidelines for whole slide imaging validation are feasible for pediatric pathology: a pediatric pathology practice experience. - Pediatric and developmental pathology : the official journal of the Society for Pediatric Pathology and the Paediatric Pathology Society
Whole slide imaging (WSI) is rapidly transforming educational and diagnostic pathology services. Recently, the College of American Pathologists Pathology and Laboratory Quality Center (CAP-PLQC) published recommended guidelines for validating diagnostic WSI. We prospectively evaluated the guidelines to determine their utility in validating pediatric surgical pathology and cytopathology specimens. Our validation included varied pediatric specimen types, including complex or less common diagnoses, in accordance with the guidelines. We completed WSI review of 60 surgical pathology cases and attempted WSI review of 21 cytopathology cases. For surgical pathology cases, WSI diagnoses were highly concordant with glass slide diagnoses; a discordant diagnosis was observed in 1 of 60 cases (98.3% concordance). We found that nucleated red blood cells and eosinophilic granular bodies represented specific challenges to WSI review of pediatric specimens. Cytology specimens were more frequently discordant or failed for technical reasons, with overall concordance of 66.7%. Review of pediatric cytopathology specimens will likely require image capture in multiple focal planes. This study is the first to specifically evaluate WSI review for pediatric specimens and demonstrates that specimens representing the spectrum of pediatric surgical pathology practice can be reviewed using WSI. Our application of the proposed CAP-PLQC guidelines to pediatric surgical pathology specimens is, to our knowledge, the first prospective implementation of the CAP-PLQC guidelines.
Disseminated Rhizomucor pusillus causing early multiorgan failure during hematopoietic stem cell transplantation for severe aplastic anemia. - Journal of pediatric hematology/oncology
Matched sibling donor hematopoietic stem cell transplantation is the standard of care for severe aplastic anemia, with an overall survival of 80% to 90%. Only 60% to 70% of patients respond to treatment with immunosuppressive therapy. The main life threatening complications are infections, graft failure, and graft versus host disease. A 10-year-old patient with severe aplastic anemia underwent matched sibling donor hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, but developed sudden onset of fatal multiorgan failure on day +12. The cause of death was found only after autopsy.
Chemoresistant hepatoblastoma in a patient with mosaic trisomy 18 treated with orthotopic liver transplantation. - Pediatric blood & cancer
We present a 9-month-old male with mosaic trisomy 18 with a right hepatic lobe mass. The tumor was completely resected and identified as pure fetal histology hepatoblastoma but contained increased mitotic activity. Adjuvant chemotherapy consisted of cisplatin, vincristine, and 5-fluorouracil. After the first and fourth cycles of chemotherapy, recurrent tumor developed. The patient underwent rescue orthotopic liver transplantation, and is currently alive without evidence of hepatoblastoma 28 months after transplantation. This report demonstrates the use of orthotopic liver transplantation in a child with mosaic trisomy 18 and hepatoblastoma.Â© 2010 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
Infantile osteopetrosis and juvenile xanthogranuloma presenting together in a newborn: a case report and literature review. - Pediatric and developmental pathology : the official journal of the Society for Pediatric Pathology and the Paediatric Pathology Society
Osteopetrosis (OP) is a clinically and genetically heterogeneous disorder characterized by increased bone density. Associations between OP and other clinical entities are rare but include muscular degeneration, Dandy-Walker syndrome, craniosynostosis, and poikiloderma. Infantile OP has also been diagnosed in a group of infants with neuronal storage disease. An association between OP and juvenile xanthogranuloma (JXG) has never been previously reported. Herein we present a case of an intermediate form of OP in a newborn who presented with hepatosplenomegaly and pancytopenia. Histologic evaluation of a bone marrow biopsy demonstrated abnormally thickened bony trabeculae. A liver biopsy demonstrated prominent expansion of portal areas by a histiocytic infiltrate expressing CD45, CD14, CD68, CD163, factor XIIIa, and fascin, while the biopsy was negative for S100 and CD1a. These findings were those associated with JXG. Genetic testing demonstrated a mutation involving the Pleckstrin homology domain-containing family M member 1 ( PLEKHM1 ) gene. A different mutation in this gene has been previously reported in one other patient with OP. Our case is the 2nd reported case with PLEKHM1 mutation in a patient with a mild form of OP. It also demonstrates the 1st reported occurrence of OP concomitantly with JXG.
Primary testicular presentation of ALK-1-negative anaplastic large cell lymphoma in a pediatric patient. - Journal of pediatric hematology/oncology
Anaplastic large cell lymphoma is a heterogeneous group of malignant non-Hodgkin lymphomas that occurs in up to 15% of all pediatric non-Hodgkin lymphomas. It is characterized by B-symptoms and involvement of extranodal sites such as skin, bone, and soft tissue. This brief report describes first reported case of pediatric primary testicular anaplastic large cell lymphoma in a 14-year-old boy. The presentation included acute testicular pain, fever, and vomiting. After chemotherapy and unilateral radical orchiectomy, patient continues in complete remission.
Autoimmune lymphoproliferative syndrome (ALPS): a case with congenital onset. - Pediatric and developmental pathology : the official journal of the Society for Pediatric Pathology and the Paediatric Pathology Society
We describe a case of autoimmune lymphoproliferative syndrome (ALPS), which is very unusual with regard to a clinical onset soon after birth, and a clinical picture dominated by splenomegaly, jaundice, and consumptive peripheral blood cytopenias, with minimal lymphadenopathy. Our documented close follow up demonstrated initial involvement of the spleen, followed by involvement of the bone marrow and the peripheral blood. The patient underwent bone marrow transplant and is alive and well 20 months after diagnosis.
