Islet-1 (Isl1) is a transcription factor involved in the embryogenesis of islets of Langerhans. Immunohistochemically, Isl1 is a sensitive lineage-specific marker for pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) and their metastases. Its specificity has not been documented, nor have large numbers of NENs from other parts of the gut or other organs been studied. We examined Isl1 expression in 203 primary NENs (gastroenteropancreatic, lung, breast, and ovarian neoplasms) and 40 hepatic NEN metastase...

Fibrosing mediastinitis (FM) and IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) are two fibroinflammatory disorders with potentially overlapping clinical and radiological features. In this paper, we looked for histopathologic features of IgG4-RD and enumerated infiltrating IgG4-positive plasma cells within mediastinal tissue biopsies from FM patients. We identified 15 consecutive FM surgical mediastinal tissue biopsies between 1985 and 2006. All patients satisfied the clinical and radiological diagnostic criter...

Autoimmune pancreatitis (AP) is one manifestation of a systemic, steroid-responsive disease with elevated serum IgG4 and characteristic histopathology, including increased IgG4-positive (+) plasma cells in the tissue. The histopathology of pulmonary IgG4 disease has not been well established. Six lung biopsies from patients with documented AP were studied, along with 12 additional cases showing similar pulmonary histopathology. For comparison, we examined Erdheim-Chester disease (n = 3), pulmona...
