Ectopic adrenal rests are a rare condition which can be found in various sites, generally in the retroperitoneum or pelvis along the path of gonadal descent. Their real prevalence is unknown. Males are more commonly affected, at least in the pediatric age. Adrenal rests are usually clinically silent and incidentally found in surgical samples, mostly in the pediatric population, and rarely in adults. With the aim of increasing knowledge and estimating the prevalence of ectopic adrenocortical tiss...

: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PanNETs) are rare neoplasms that include even rarer variants that may pose different diagnostic problems, especially in fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC). We describe the diagnostic clues of the amyloid-rich variant of PanNETs in endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided fine needle aspiration cytology (EUS-FNAC). Three cases of PanNETs with an amyloid-rich stromal component were retrieved and retrospectively reviewed. For every case, the pancreatic lesion was i...

Several ultrasound (US) risk stratification systems (US-RSSs) have been proposed to stratify the risk of malignancy (ROM) of thyroid nodules. This risk might be overestimated due to selection bias and comparison with the cytological report alone. Our study aimed to compare ROM and diagnostic performance of three guidelines (ATA, AACE/ACE/AME, EUTIRADS) and evaluate the changes in unnecessary biopsy according to the nodule size cutoff for biopsy, using histology as gold standard. This retrospecti...

Spread Through Air Spaces (STAS) is a form of invasion characterized by neoplastic cell dissemination in the lung parenchyma surrounding the outer edge of the tumor. Its possible artifactual origin is widely debated in the literature. The aim of this study is to investigate the potential impact of gross sampling procedures in causing STAS. A prospective series of 51 surgical lung specimens was collected (35 adenocarcinomas, 68.6%; 13 squamous cell carcinomas, 25.5%; 2 large-cell neuroendocrine c...

Background and objectives Italy was severely affected by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 pandemic. Our Institution, Piedmont's largest tertiary referral center, was designated as a non-COVID-19 hospital and activities were reorganized to prioritize critical services like oncological care. The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy in preserving the oncological surgical practice at our Institution during the most critical months of the COVID-19 epidemic by analyzing...

In thyroid pathology, the great variety of types and the wide range of aggressiveness of thyroid cancers complicate both diagnosis and management. In 2016, a subset of noninvasive encapsulated follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma was reclassified as noninvasive follicular thyroid tumor with papillary-like nuclear features (NIFTP) to reduce overtreatment of this low-risk tumor that follows a benign course after surgery. Starting from a paradigmatic clinical case, in this short review...
