Primary mucinous carcinoma
of the skin: A population-based study.
of the skin, primary, and secondary: a clinicopathologic study of63 cases with emphasis on the morphologic spectrum of primary cutaneous forms: homologies with mucinous lesions in the breast.
Recent studies (11, 13) have also revealed that a subset of patients diagnosed with mucinous carcinoma
present with mammographically occult neoplasms and/or multifocal/multicentric disease.
Symonds DA, Vickery AL: Mucinous carcinoma
of the colon and rectum.
Colorectal Cancer: Epidemiologic Findings From the SEER Database Signet-Ring Cell Mucinous Carcinoma
Carcinoma Adenocarcinoma Incidence per 100,000 persons 0.
Cases in which the stromal mucin deposition constituted more than 50% of the tumor were classified as mucinous carcinoma
(MC) according to the current World Health Organization classification, (24) and their clinicopathologic characteristics were investigated.
Solid papillary carcinoma of the breast: a form of intraductal carcinoma with endocrine differentiation frequently associated with mucinous carcinoma
Other wellcircumscribed carcinomas, such as medullary, papillary, and mucinous carcinomas
, should also be included in the differential diagnosis.
The cumulative histories of all participant responses for breast FNA cytology challenges with the reference diagnosis of mucinous carcinoma
circulated from 2001-2008 were obtained through the CAP SCORES computer system.
Both intermediate and high-grade mucinous carcinomas
were more frequently derived from nonappendiceal primary tumors and pursued an aggressive clinical course with 5- and 10-year survival rates of 50% and 21% for intermediate-grade peritoneal mucinous carcinomatosis and 14% and 3% for high-grade peritoneal mucinous carcinomatosis, respectively.
In 1 progesterone receptor-negative tumor, the Recurrence Score was 5; however, this was a case of a mucinous carcinoma
arising in an intracystic papillary cancer.
Primary appendiceal mucinous neoplasms exhibit a spectrum of histopathologic features and have been variably designated as ranging from mucinous cystadenoma, low-grade mucinous neoplasm, and disseminated peritoneal adenomucinosis to cystadenocarcinoma, mucinous carcinoma
, and peritoneal mucinous carcinomatosis.
