Reproducibility of AJCC Criteria for Classifying Deeply Invasive Colon Cancers Is Suboptimal for Consistent Cancer Staging.

Nicole C Panarelli, Suntrea T G Hammer, Jingmei Lin, Purva Gopal, ILKe Nalbantoglu, Lili Zhao, Jerome Cheng, Adam J Gersten, Jonathan B McHugh, Vinita Parkash, Elena Lucas, Maria Westerhoff,

The eighth edition of the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) Staging Manual attempts to address ambiguity in the pT category assignment for colon cancer from prior editions. Despite modifications, the distinction between the pT3 and pT4a categories continues to be a source of diagnostic confusion. In this study, we ... Read more >>

Hispanic/Latino Patients with Gastric Adenocarcinoma Have Distinct Molecular Profiles Including a High Rate of Germline CDH1 Variants.

Sam C Wang, Yunku Yeu, Suntrea T G Hammer, Shu Xiao, Min Zhu, Changjin Hong, Jean R Clemenceau, Lynn Y Yoon, Ibrahim Nassour, Jeanne Shen, Deepak Agarwal, Scott I Reznik, John C Mansour, Adam C Yopp, Hao Zhu, Tae Hyun Hwang, Matthew R Porembka,

Hispanic/Latino patients have a higher incidence of gastric cancer and worse cancer-related outcomes compared with patients of other backgrounds. Whether there is a molecular basis for these disparities is unknown, as very few Hispanic/Latino patients have been included in previous studies. To determine the genomic landscape of gastric cancer in ... Read more >>

Novel Application of Extracorporeal Photopheresis as Treatment of Graft-versus-Host Disease Following Liver Transplantation.

Timothy J Brown, Cathy Gentry, Suntrea T G Hammer, Christine S Hwang, Madhuri Vusirikala, Prapti A Patel, Karén Matevosyan, Shannan R Tujios, Arjmand R Mufti, Robert H Collins,

A 48-year-old man with hepatitis C virus (HCV) cirrhosis complicated by hepatocellular carcinoma underwent liver transplantation. His course was complicated by fever, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and pancytopenia. He developed a diffuse erythematous rash, which progressed to erythroderma. Biopsies of the colon and skin were consistent with acute graft-versus-host disease. Donor-derived ... Read more >>

Sporadic lymphoplasmacytic cholecystitis: a clinicopathologic entity.

Suntrea T G Hammer, Henry D Appelman,

OBJECTIVES: To describe a sporadic form of lymphoplasmacytic cholecystitis (LPC), a condition known to occur in patients with chronic biliary tract disease. METHODS: One year's worth of cholecystectomies was reviewed for sporadic cases of LPC. Histologic, radiologic, and clinical findings were reviewed and compared with noninflamed controls. Sporadic cases were ... Read more >>

The clinical significance of duodenal lymphocytosis with normal villus architecture.

Suntrea T G Hammer, Joel K Greenson,

CONTEXT: The finding of increased intraepithelial lymphocytes with normal villous architecture (Marsh I lesion) is seen in up to 3% of duodenal biopsies. The differential diagnosis includes a wide range of possibilities, including celiac disease, bacterial overgrowth, nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug damage, reaction to Helicobacter pylori infection, tropical sprue, and chronic ...

Pancreatoblastoma: a rare, adult pancreatic tumor with many faces.

Suntrea T G Hammer, Scott R Owens,

Pancreatoblastomas are malignant epithelial neoplasms of the pancreas that are heterogeneous and have variable cellular differentiation, complicating the diagnosis. We report a case of pancreatoblastoma occurring in an adult patient, presenting as a pancreatic head mass with liver metastasis and jaundice. The initial liver biopsy diagnosis was metastatic neuroendocrine carcinoma ... Read more >>

Low Paneth cell numbers at onset of gastrointestinal graft-versus-host disease identify patients at high risk for nonrelapse mortality.

John E Levine, Elisabeth Huber, Suntrea T G Hammer, Andrew C Harris, Joel K Greenson, Thomas M Braun, James L M Ferrara, Ernst Holler,

Acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract is an often lethal complication of allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplant. Clinical severity correlates with outcomes, but histopathologic grading is primarily used to confirm the clinical diagnosis. One barrier to using histopathologic grading to predict clinical outcomes is inter-grader variability among transplant ... Read more >>

Anaplastic lymphoma kinase-positive anaplastic large cell lymphoma presenting as retroperitoneal fibrosis.

Suntrea T G Hammer, Jeffrey M Jentzen, Megan S Lim,

Retroperitoneal fibrosis is a rare fibroinflammatory condition involving the abdominal aorta, iliac vessels, and ureters that carries an association with several other autoimmune conditions. Most cases of retroperitoneal fibrosis are thought to be idiopathic. The disorder can affect all age groups but is most common in persons between the ages ... Read more >>
