Lungs may be affected by a number of chronic diseases of unknown etiology, which show common and overlapping clinical features but nevertheless have distinctive histologic characteristics. Dyspnea and deterioration of pulmonary function is invariably related to a loss of pulmonary parenchyma and pulmonary fibrosis. The most important of these diseases are listed in Table 4-1. Idiopathic organizing pneumonia, which is also known as bronchiolitis obliterans with organizing pneumonia (BOOP), is a restrictive lung disease that begins with symptoms that are suggestive of viral pneumonitis. The symptoms fail to resolve and the lung parenchyma undergoes patchy consolidation (Fig. 4-55). Microscopic sections show numerous fibroblastic polypoid protrusions (Masson bodies) obliterating the respiratory bronchioles, the alveolar ducts, and even the alveoli. The epithelium of terminal bronchioles proliferates, covering the surface of Masson bodies and lining the restructured air spaces. These findings are, however, non-

specific and also can be found in other forms of chronic pneumonia. Chronic idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis begins insidiously and progresses to end-stage lung disease over a variable period. The lungs are firm and fibrotic and the normal areas alternate with foci of scarring (Fig. 4-56). Microscopic features include prominent fibrosis replacing focally the normal lung parenchyma. The remaining air spaces are abnormal, dilated, and often lined by cuboidal cells (Fig. 4-57). Most cases of so-called usual interstitial pneumonia (UIP) show this histologic pattern. Some cases, however, are classified as desquamative interstitial pneumonia (DIP). In this variant the thick-walled alveoli are filled with numerous macrophages (Fig. 4-58). Pulmonary alveolar proteinosis is a disease of unknown etiology. It presents as progressive dyspnea and respiratory insufficiency. Parts of the lungs become consolidated due to the accumulation of lipid-rich proteinaceous material in the alveoli (Fig. 4-59).

Tumors of the lungs can be classified as central (hilar) or peripheral. Several microscopic categories are recognized (Table 4-2). Hilar tumors originate from the epithelium of the main bronchi (Fig. 4-60). Histologically they present as squamous cell, small (oat) cell, large cell carcinoma, or adenocarcinoma (Figs. 4-61 and 4-62). Peripheral subpleural tumors, which often arise in anthracotic fibrous scars, have his -

tologic features of adenocarcinoma (Fig. 4-63). Bronchioloalveolar carcinoma is a form of peripheral adenocarcinoma that grows along the alveolar septa, filling the alveoli and causing pneumonia-like consolidation of the lung parenchyma (Figs. 4-64 and 4-65). Carcinoids are low-grade malignant tumors of endocrine cells (Figs. 4-66 and 4-67). Other primary malignant tumors are less common.

Sarcomas of the lung present as bulky solid masses (Fig. 4-68). Histologically they resemble sarcomas of soft tissues. Pulmonary blastoma is an organ-specific malignant tumor composed of cuboidal epithelial cells that form branching ducts surrounded by mesenchymal stroma that resemble fetal lungs (Fig. 4-69). Benign tumors and tumor-like conditions present as coin lesions on radiographic examination. Pulmonary hamartomas are composed of cartilage, bronchial epithelium, and

smooth muscle cells. On gross examination hamartomas appear as clefted cartilaginous nodules (Fig. 4-70). Sclerosing hemangioma, also called papillary pneumocytoma, is a benign tumor of controversial histogenesis (Fig. 4-71). Inflammatory pseudotumor is an inflammatory lesion that may resemble tumors (Fig. 4-72). Metastatic tumors appear on radiographic examination as sharply demarcated multiple round nodules ( " cannonball" lesions). Equivalent autopsy findings are typical (Fig. 4-73).

Anemia is a reduction in the hemoglobin concentration in the blood, which decreases its oxygen-carrying capacity. The pathologic changes related to anemias can be seen primarily in the bone marrow, which is the site of red blood cell (RBC) production; the circulating blood; and the spleen, which is the primary site of RBC destruction. Pathophysiologically anemias can be classified into those attributable to (1) impaired production of erythrocytes; (2) inherited quantitative and structural abnormalities of hemoglobin synthesis; (3) increased rate of erythrocyte destruction, that is, hemolytic anemias; and (4) acute blood loss. On the basis of RBC morphology, anemias are classified as (1) microcytic, (2) normocytic, or (3) macrocytic (Table 5-1).

Morphologic Classification of Anemias Microcytic hypochromic anemias Iron deficiency Chronic disease Thalassemia Sideroblastic anemia Normocytic normochromic anemias Aplastic anemia Chronic disease Myelophthisic conditions Hemolytic anemia Macrocytic anemias Vitamin B12 deficiency Folic acid deficiency Chronic liver disease Myelodysplastic syndrome

Bone Marrow Changes
Hematopoietic cells constitute 40 percent of normal bone marrow (Fig. 5-1). Hemolytic anemia results in compensatory erythroid hyperplasia (Fig. 5-2). In aplastic anemia the bone marrow is acellular and contains few or no hematopoietic cells (Fig. 5-3). Anemia can result from the replacement of the normal hematopoietic cells as a result of sarcoidosis or other inflammatory conditions and tumors (Fig. 5-4). Specific causes of anemia such as parvovirus B19 occasionally may be identified by bone marrow biopsy (Fig. 5-5). Many other forms of anemia are characterized by specific bone marrow findings. For example, pernicious anemia shows megaloblastic changes (Fig. 5-6).

Peripheral Blood Smears
Peripheral blood smears are important for assessing anemia. Morphology of red blood cells may be used to classify anemias into general categories (e.g., microcytic versus macrocytic) or to obtain specific information about the nature of the underlying defect, as in spherocytosis,.elliptocytosis, pyropoikilocytosis, or acanthocytosis (Figs. 5-7 to 5-9).

Islet cell tumors are rare neoplasms that are found in the general population at a rate of 1 per 100,000. Because the tumors have the features of neuroendocrine cells and presumably have the same origin as islets of Langerhans, they are referred to as neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas. Clinically they are either benign or malignant. It is not possible to determine on the basis of histology whether a particular tumor is benign or malignant, and the presence of metastases is the only definitive sign that a tumor is malignant. On gross examination neuroendocrine tumors appear as well-circumscribed nodules (Fig 9-34). Some tumors are multiple, and malignant tumors may have local metastases

in the lymph nodes or liver. Histologically, islet cell tumors resemble neuroendocrine tumors (carcinoids) of the intestine or the bronchi and present in several patterns such as trabecular, insular, glandular, or solid (Fig. 9-35). Some tumors are composed of endocrine and exocrine cells. In some patients with multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN 1), islet cell tumors are seen only on microscopic examination and are classified as microadenomas (Fig. 9-36). Islet cell tumors are classified functionally according to which hormone they produce as: (1) insulinoma; (2) glucagonoma; (3) somatostatinoma; (4) PPoma (pancreatic polypeptide—secreting tumor); (5) gastrinoma; (6) VIPoma (vasoactive intestinal polypeptide-secreting tumor); (7) nonfunctioning tumors; and (8) ectopic hormone—secreting tumors. By light microscopy all of these tumors have the same features and cannot be distinguished one from another. Somatostatinomas may contain calcifications (Fig. 9-37), but

this finding does not have enough specificity to allow one to make a definitive diagnosis. Immunohistochemistry and electron microscopy are essential for diagnosis and in most cases provide morphologic confirmation and correlation with the clinical and biochemical laboratory data (Figs. 9-38 and 9-39). Many neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas are, however, composed of more than one cell population and are i mmunohistochemically polyhormonal.

Diabetes of chronic pancreatitis is related to destruction of the pancreas, with fibrosis replacing the lost parenchyma (Fig. 9-45). Although fibrosis preferentially replaces acini, many islets also are destroyed and the number of f3-cells is reduced (Fig. 9-46). The remaining islets usually form irregular clusters surrounded by fibrotic tissue, which impedes the release of insulin into the circulation. Further Reading

cytes are seen in early stages of the disease (Fig. 9-40). Affected patients typically develop autoantibodies to islet cells (Fig. 9-41). In the course of the disease the islets lose R cells, an event that maybe accompanied by a hyperplasia of a cells (Fig. 9-42). In some fulminant cases islets may be destroyed (Fig. 9-43). In such cases patients survive only by receiving daily injections of insulin. Type 2 diabetes usually is not associated with specific insular changes. Some patients show hyalinization and/or amyloid deposition in islets (Fig. 9-44).

Diseases of the endocrine glands present clinically as hypofunctional or hyperfunctional states or as space-occupying lesions caused by neoplastic or nonneoplastic enlargement of the glands. The hypofunction of endocrine glands may be traced to a destruction of parenchymal cells by inflammation, circulatory disturbances, or tumors; hyperfunction may be related to hyperplasia or neoplasia. Major endocrine glands are interrelated, and changes in one gland may produce reactive changes in another gland.

Hypofunction of the pituitary gland maybe related to (1) agen-

esis or congenital hypoplasia; (2) circulatory disturbances; (3) inflammatory disease caused by infections or autoimmune disorders; (4) compression or destruction of the pituitary gland or hypothalamus by space-occupying lesions such as tumors, abscesses, or hematomas; (5) trauma, irradiation, or surgical procedures (Fig. 10-1).

pend on the primary disease, but ultimately the entire content of the sella turcica may be destroyed, resulting in the socalled empty sella syndrome. Empty sella syndrome related to incomplete or absent sellar diaphragm is called primary empty sella syndrome (Diagram 10-1). If the cause of empty sella syndrome is traced to a destructive disease, it is classified as secondary. Lymphocytic hypophysitis is thought to be an autoimmune disease (Fig. 10-2). Granulomas may be infectious or-idiopathic, as in sarcoidosis. Tumors such as craniopharyngioma or Langerhans cell histiocytosis (histiocytosis X) may destroy the pituitary gland or the hypothalamus, causing hypopituitarism (Figs. 10-3 and 10-4).

Reactive Changes
Reactive changes may be seen in the pituitary gland (1) under physiologic conditions, as in pregnancy; (2) as a result of hypofunction of other endocrine glands, as in hypothyroidism or adrenocortical hypofunction (Addison disease); (3) as a result of hypefunction of other endocrine glands, as in hyperadrenocorticism; or (4) as a consequence of a drug effect. The reactive cells enlarge or decrease in size, or show typical cytoplasmic changes such as Crooke hyaline in hyperadrenocorticism (Figs. 10-5 and 10-6). Tumors Tumors of the pituitary gland are mostly benign and are composed of cells equivalent to those normally seen in the pituitary gland. Immunohistochemically they are classified as prolactinomas, or as adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), growth hormone (GH), thyroid-stimulating hormone, (TSH), or gonadotropic hormones (FSH or LH) secreting adenomas. If the immunochemical results are negative or inconclusive, pituitary adenomas are designated null cell adenomas or unclassified adenomas. Tumors composed of oncocytic cells are called oncocytomas. The frequency of various types of pituitary adenomas is listed in Table 10-1.

On the basis of their size, pituitary tumors are classified as microadenomas (if they are smaller than 10 mm in diameter) or macroadenomas (if they are larger than 10 mm in diameter) (Figs. 10-7 and 10-8). On the basis of their morphology on routine hematoxylin-eosin—stained slides, pituitary adenomas traditionally were classified as acidophilic, basophilic, or chromophobic (Fig. 10-9). This classification did not provide useful correlates with clinical or biochemical data, and it has been replaced by a functional classification based on immunohistochemical and electron microscopic typings of tumor cells (Figs. 10-10 and 10-11). Pituitary carcinomas are rare, locally invasive tumors that account for 2 percent to 3 percent of all pituitary neoplasms. Histologically it is not possible to distinguish with confidence adenomas from carcinomas, except in rare cases in which the malignant tumor is highly anaplastic.

Secondary degenerative changes are common and include fibrosis. but in general nodular goiter is not a direct precursor of thyroid cancer.

The thyroid gland is composed of follicles arranged into clusters.

It most often occurs in women. The epithelium often projects into the lumen of follicles in the form of small papillary infoldings. Occasionally there is Diagram I0-2. Histologically it is characterized by a granulomatous giant cell and lymphocytic reaction around the colloid released from ruptured follicles. and soft (Fig. The excess of T 3 and T4 results in the suppression of thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) and thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) production. usually following a viral infection. Other forms of thyroiditis that may cause clinical symptoms are less common but may be associated with specific clinical symptoms (Table 10-2). Hashimoto thyroiditis is an autoimmune thyroid disease that may occur either in an isolated form or conjointly with other autoinunune diseases such as atrophic gastritis or primary biliary cirrhosis. A defect in suppressor T-lymphocytes is responsible for the excessive production of autoantibodies to TSH receptor causing enlargement of the thyroid gland and excessive production of triiodothyronine (T 3 ) and thyroxine (T 4). Most patients initially are euthyroid. 10-15). Graves disease is an autoimmune disorder caused by stim- ulation of the thyroid gland by antibodies to the receptor for TSH (Diagram 10-2). and the female-male ratio is 8:1.

Vaginal adenosis is a benign condition that has been reported in young women who were exposed to diethylstilbestrol (DES) during fetal life. Mucosa of the exocervix and adjacent vagina contains mucinous glands in place of normal squamous epithelium. Invasive adenocarcinoma may evolve from some of these lesions (Fig. The tumor presented as a large. in contrast to the more opaque. 13-27). 13-26).

It is graded on the basis of cellular and architectural atypia as CIN I. Benign mixed tumor of the vagina. but the neoplastic transformation of the glandular epithelium of the endocervix is less common. A fleshy mass protrudes into the lumen of the vagina. The tumor is composed of tubulocystic glands. Carcinoma of the cervix begins as an intraepithelial neoplasm that is termed cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN). The tumor presents as a grapelike polypoid mass protruding from the vagina (Fig. indicating that they represent rhabdomyoblasts. TUMORS OF THE CERVIX Most tumors of the cervix originate from the squamocolumnar junction between the squamous epithelium of the exocervix and the glandular epithelium of the endocervix (transitional zone).nlA 16 ·IMIÃi : ºIzº yºHjn¼º «¹ÀoÎ » ÂUHnIzTºH ¾vw¼¶ §ú»oT§²H ozº . 66417308 : ¸Ÿ±U 24 ¥°Q . 13-30. 13-31).

Carcinoma of the cervix spreads by direct invasion of contiguous tissues and lymphogenously to local lymph nodes. 13-32. Lesions that previously were classified as CIN II and CIN III are called high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (HSIL) (Figs. High-grade lesions are aneuploid and are more likely to progress. but they vary considerably in size and shape and have a relative abundance of cytoplasm.267 The National Cancer Institute recently proposed a new terminology (Bethesda System) according to which the three-grade CIN scheme was reduced to two grades of squamous intraepithelial lesion (SIL). also known as flat condyloma.

Endometrioid tumors that have a malignant stromal component are classified as carcinosarcomas and are equivalent to uterine malignant mixed mullerian tumors. Extraovarian spread of mucinous tumors results in peritoneal seeding and mucinous ascites known as pseudomyxoma peritonei. The distinction between borderline malignant and low-grade malignant mucinous tumors may be difficult. Histologically they resemble endometrioid adenocarcinomas of the uterus and are graded the same way (Fig. Such criteria are most easily applied to endometrioid tumors that have a prominent stromal component. Recently it was proposed that intestinal mucinous borderline tumors may be separated from well-differentiated carcinomas by quantitative nuclear morphologic analysis.·Ho¿U ½I«zºHj ÂMoš Jnj ®MI£¶ . or vice versa. They are so named because of their histologic resemblance to uterine adenocarcinomas. which together with additional foci of squamous differentiation may be the only clue to the true nature of such tumors.

Borderline tumors of the endocervical type have a better prognosis than those of the intestinal type. In 85 percent of cases cysts are lined by intestinal-like epithelium. The main reason for this diagnostic dilemma lies in the nature of stromal reaction to the tumor. Endometrioid adenofibroma of borderline malignancy. or malignant (Fig. and there is controversy over whether these represent two independent primary tumors.

For unknown reasons hyperparathyroidism affects the cortical and subperiosteal bone more than the trabeculae of the cancellous bone. Early diagnosis of primary hyperparathyroidism and successful treatment of chronic renal diseases have reduced the occurrence of severe forms of renal osteodystrophy and osteitis fibrosa cystica. which leads to accelerated remodeling of the bone and loss of minerals from the osteon (Fig. 17-14).

It consists of a small nidus of bone-forming cells surrounded by sclerotic bone. The nidus, which by definition measures only 1 to 2 cm in diameter, is composed of osteoblasts, interlacing trabeculae of woven bone and osteoid, blood vessels, and occasional osteoclasts. Osteoblastoma is a benign bone-producing tumor that accounts for 1 percent of all bone neoplasms. It more often is found in males than in females and most often is located in

the posterior parts (transverse and spinous processes) of the vertebrae. Radiologically it is a mixed osteolytic and osteoblastic lesion that may cause cortical thinning and eventually cortical expansion (Fig. 17-34). On gross examination osteoblastoma appears as a granular, hemorrhagic, gritty mass that is sharply demarcated from the normal bone. Histologically it is indistinguishable from osteoid osteoma. The tumor contains numerous interlacing trabeculae of osteoid

The stroma is highly vascular and there are scattered osteoclasts. No other elements are seen, although recently there have been reports that small foci of cartilage occasionally are found. Osteoblastomas are benign tumors but a rare aggressive variant may appear occasionally. These tumors are considered to be low-grade osteosarcomas and are treated accordingly. .

Malignant Bone-forming Tumors
Osteosarcoma is a complex family of biologically diverse

pathologic entities that share a single histologic finding: the production of bone or osteoid by malignant cells. On the basis of clinical and pathologic features, conventional ( "classic" ) osteosarcomas may be separated from several variant forms. Variant forms of osteosarcoma have a different prognosis from that of conventional osteosarcoma and need to be recognized. Conventional osteosarcomas account for 65 percent to 75 percent of all osteosarcomas. Although they may occur in any age group, most tumors are diagnosed in persons between 10 and 30 years of age. Males are affected twice as often as females. Fewer than 1000 cases of conventional osteosarcoma are diagnosed yearly. Although any bone may be involved, most tumors arise in the distal part of the femur and in the proximal parts of the tibia, fibula, femur, and radius. Approximately 90 percent of tumors arise in the metaphysis, and 10 percent arise in the diaphysis. Epiphyseal involvement

almost always represents secondary extension or metastasis from a metaphyseal primary tumor. Radiologically osteosarcoma presents as a highly aggressive and destructive lesion that has a variegated appearance on radiograph (Fig. 17-35). Most lesions contain both radiolucent and radiopaque areas, and extension into the soft tissues is common. There are, however, no specific diagnostic radiologic features or features that would have special prognostic significance. The gross and microscopic appearance of conventional osteosarcoma is highly variable and depends on its histologic composition. Lesions that are rich in osteoid and bone appear dense, granular, and sclerotic, and their color varies from yellow-brown to ivory-white. Tumors that contain significant amounts of cartilage have an overall gray-blue, lobulated, chondroid appearance. If little matrix is present, the tumors appear gray-tan; hemorrhage may account for the brownish-red mottling of some lesions. Microscopically osteosarcoma is composed of atypical spindle-shaped cells (Fig. 17-36). The production of osteoid or bone by malignant cells represents the single diagnostic criterion of conventional osteosarcoma. Osseous matrix may be the dominant histologic finding or it may be quite inconspicuous. Cartilage and collagenous stroma also may be present, and accordingly tumors may be further subclassified as osteoblastic, chondroblastic, or fibroblastic. Most osteosarcomas represent a mixture of these three patterns. Histologic subclassifications are impractical and have no clinical value. Multidisciplinary protocols used in the treatment of osteosarcoma have dramatically improved the long-term survival

of patients with conventional osteosarcoma from less than 20 percent in the past to approximately 80 percent as reported in most recent studies.

Osteosarcoma Variants
Parosteal osteosarcoma is a low-grade malignant tumor that arises from the surface of bones. It most often occurs in the third to fifth decade of life, and women are affected twice as often as men. It is almost exclusively a disease of long bones and most often affects the posterior aspect of the distal femur (Fig. 17-37). Radiologically it appears as a radiopaque, lobulated mass that seemingly is applied to the surface of the involved bone. The tumor generally grows along the surface of the bone without involving the medullary cavity. On gross examination the tumor arises from the bone surface and tends to be large. Microscopically, parosteal osteosarcoma is composed of relatively innocuous spindle-shaped fibroblastic cells that produce well-formed lamellar bone spicules. With appropriate treatment, the long-term survival rate is over 90 percent. Periosteal osteosarcoma has a peak incidence in the second and third decades of life. Men are affected more often than women. This tumor most often arises in the diaphysis and

metadiaphysis of long bones, especially the femur and the tibia. Radiologically it may involve part of the surface or may extend into the soft tissues in a spiculated "sunburst " pattern (Fig. 17-38). Like parosteal osteosarcoma, this tumor also may circumferentially envelop tubular bones from which they have arisen. On gross examination the tumor is located in the metaphysis or metadiaphysis; it has a broad base, with fusiform elevation of the periosteum. Microscopically it has the features of high-grade chondroblastic osteosarcoma. The five-year survival rate is 50 percent. Intraosseous well-differentiated osteosarcoma is a rare variant that has a peak incidence in the third decade and affects women more often than men. The tumor has a strong predilection for the long bones of the extremities, especially the metaphysis, but it also may occur in the diaphysis. Radiologically it has no distinct features and may simulate fibrous dysplasia or desmoplastic fibroma. Grossly it contains both osteoblastic and osteolytic areas and often is confined to the medullary cavity (Fig. 17-39), although older lesions may extend beyond the cortex. The tumor shares the innocuous histologic features of parosteal osteosarcoma. Microscopically it is composed of relatively bland fibroblastic cells that form mature bone spicules, resembling parosteal osteosarcoma. It has a favorable prognosis.

Telangiectatic osteosarcoma has the same clinical features as conventional osteosarcoma but differs in that it is cystic and hemorrhagic and may resemble aneurysmal bone cyst (Fig. 17-40). Microscopically the tumor is composed of highgrade osteoblastic cells that produce little osteoid and are surrounded by prominent dilated blood vessels.

Benign Cartilage-forming Tumors
Osteochondroma is the most common benign cartilaginous tumor of bones, accounting for approximately one third of all benign bone neoplasms. Most often it is found in children and adolescents. It usually is located in the metaphysis of long bones, growing away from the nearest joint. On gross examination the tumor apparently arises from the cortex and may be sessile or pedunculated. The lesion consists predominantly of cancellous bone that is covered with a cartilaginous cap (Fig. 17-41). Histologically the lesion is composed of ma -

ture bone and cartilage and is not resected unless it causes compression, fracture, or other complications. Enchondroma is a benign cartilaginous tumor of short bones of the hand and foot of adults. When tumors are multiple and unilateral, the disorder is referred to as Oilier disease. If tumors are multiple and are associated with angiomas of soft tissues, the condition is called Maffucci syndrome. Solitary enchondroma is the most common of all tumors that occur in the short tubular bones of hands. Enchondromas typically are located, in order of decreasing frequency, in bones of the fingers, metacarpal bones, phalanges of toes, and metatarsal bones. Tumors arise from the medullary cavity, extending the bone longitudinally, expanding it, and causing cortical thinning. Histologically the tumors consist of hyaline cartilage of variable cellularity. There often are numerous binucleated chondrocytes with nuclei larger than the nuclei of mature lymphocytes (Fig. 17-42). Finely dispersed chro-

matin and nucleoli are seen, but mitoses are not apparent. These tumors do not metastasize but may recur after curettage. Conservative treatment is recommended because only a few tumors that have metastasized have been reported. Periosteal chondroma is a rare, benign, slow-growing, cartilaginous tumor that arises from the surface of a bone under the periosteum. Like enchondromas of the hand and feet, its histologic features may be alarming, but its behavior is benign. The most common location is the metaphyseal region of long tubular bones, such as the humerus and femur, proxi mal tibia, and phalanges of fingers (Fig. 17-43). Radiologically the lesion typically is small (1 to 3 cm in diameter) and saucer-shaped on the surface of the bone with a dense rim of reactive bone tissue. The lesion usually protrudes into the soft tissue but is well delimited by the periosteum, which may form a thin eggshell ossification around it. On gross examination periosteal chondroma is a lobulated cartilaginous nodule surrounded by a rim of bone. Histologically it may appear as an innocuous proliferation of hyaline cartilage, but it is common to find binucleated cells and enlarged nuclei with finely dispersed chromatin. This histologic pattern is similar to that of a low-grade chondrosarcoma. The diagnosis is based on typical radiologic findings, and the histologic findings should not be a cause for alarm because the tumor is invariably benign. Nevertheless, it should be distinguished from periosteal chondrosarcoma and periosteal osteosarcoma, both of which show much more pronounced nuclear atypia. Chondromyxoid fibroma is a rare, locally aggressive but benign tumor of bone that accounts for less than 0.5 percent of benign bone tumors. It may occur in any age group but is more common in the second and third decades of life. The most common sites of involvement are the metaphyses of long bones, proximal tibia and fibula, and distal femur, which

is the site of origin of approximately one half of all cases. Radiographically the lesion has an eccentric radiolucent area surrounded by a sclerotic rim of dense bone, which imparts a geographic appearance (Fig. 17-44). In contrast to other cartilaginous tumors, chondromyxoid fibromas rarely contain calcifications. Tumor may destroy the cortex, but generally it is well delimited by the periosteum. On gross examination the tumor is glistening, myxoid, lobulated, and cartilage-like, and in resected specimens it is surrounded by a rim of dense bone. Microscopically the tumor contains lobules of myxoid tissue surrounded by condensation of cells at the periphery of the lobulated areas. The myxoid areas are poorly cellular, containing stellate, triangular-shaped, spindle-shaped, or round cells Hyaline cartilage differentiation is not seen even though some cells resemble chondroblasts. At the periphery of lobules there is condensation of

medium-sized cells, many of which resemble chondroblasts. Some osteoclast-like giant cells are seen, but mitoses are rare. Immunohistochemically the cells are positive for S-100 proteins, which indicates their cartilaginous nature. Tumors are treated by block resection because curettage alone is accompanied by an 80 percent recurrence rate. Chondroblastoma is a rare, benign, cartilaginous tumor that accounts for 1 percent of benign bone tumors. It may occur at any age but most often it is diagnosed in the second decade of life. It typically occurs in the epiphyses of long bones but extends into the metaphyses as it grows. Radiologically the lesion is eccentric in 75 percent of cases. It has a geographic pattern of bone destruction with a sclerotic rim of dense bone at the periphery, consistent with the slow growth of the tumor over prolonged periods (Fig. 17-45). Grossly the lesion consists of reddish-brown hemorrhagic tissue, with occasional small calcifications. Microscopically the tumor consists of chondroblasts, islands of cartilage, giant cells, and calcifications. The chondroblasts are polygonal or round cells with indented or grooved nuclei, without nucleolus and abundant light tan–pink cytoplasm. These cells stain positive for S-100 protein. Mitotic figures are found in most tumors and range from 1 to 3 per 10 high-power fields. Nuclear atypia and focal necrosis may be found, but these changes alone do not imply malignancy. Cartilage is found in the form of small islands but appears as ill-defined amorphous pink material that may resemble osteoid. It contains collagen but is depleted of proteoglycans and is referred to as " chondroid." Giant cells, which may be sparse or abundant, represent osteoclasts. Calcifications are of two types: small, irregular, and ill-defined; or lacy, " chicken wire " type, i mparting to the lesions a honeycomb appearance. Ossification that simulates osteoblastoma is found in 5 percent of lesions. Aneurysmal bone cyst formation is a common secondary phenomenon that might be associated with a higher degree of recurrences. Most tumors are benign and respond


well to conservative management with curettage. Recurrences are expected in 15 percent of cases. Metastasizing malignant chondroblastomas are extremely rare.

Malignant Cartilage-forming Tumors
Chondrosarcoma is the second most malignant bone tumor. It is classified as central (medullary) if it is located in the medullary cavity or peripheral (juxtacortical) if it is found on the surface of the bone. Microscopically it is categorized as classic chondrosarcoma or as chondrosarcoma variants . Chondrosarcomas may arise de novo or as a secondary malignancy in a preexisting cartilage lesion, such as enchondromas of Oilier disease. Chondrosarcomas occur mostly in adults, generally those between 20 and 70 years of age. The most common sites of involvement are the pelvis, femur, scapula, humerus, and ribs (Fig. 17-46). Radiographic findings are typical. Scattered calcifications, described as punctate, annular, popcorn-like, stippled, and so on, are indicative of cartilaginous tumors but do not help in distinguishing benign from malignant tumors. Classic chondrosarcoma is the most common type of this malignancy. On gross examination the tumors have a glistening, lobulated cartilaginous appearance irrespective of their intramedullary or surface location. As the tumors grow, they tend to compress tissues or invade and trap adjacent structures. Microscopically chondrosarcomas may be composed of morphologically benign cells or apparently malig-

nant and undifferentiated cells (Fig. 17-47). Histologic grading of lesions, which usually is done on a scale from 1 to 3, is an important part of the evaluation of all cartilaginous tumors. Low-grade lesions are made up of hyaline cartilage showing sparse cellularity and rare lacunae with binucleated cells. The nuclei of tumor cells are dark, round, and not larger than the nuclei of lymphocytes. Higher grade lesions are more cellular and are composed of tumor cells that have larger nuclei with finely dispersed chromatin and occasional nucleoli. There is increased variation in the size and shape of nuclei, some of which are spindle-shaped, vesicular, or bizarre. The number of lacunae with binucleated cells is increased. High-grade lesions show nuclear atypia, pleomorphism, and mitotic activity. Two or more mitoses per 10 highpower fields are found in grade 3 lesions. Grade 1 lesions have an excellent prognosis and may be cured by local treatment, in contrast to grade 3 lesions, which tend to metastasize and have a 10-year survival rate of 55 percent. Chondrosarcoma variants include (1) dedifferentiated chondrosarcoma, (2) mesenchymal chondrosarcoma, and (3) clear cell chondrosarcoma. Dedifferentiated chondrosarcoma is a rare tumor that accounts for 1 percent to 2 percent of malignant bone tumors. It has the worst prognosis of all chondrosarcomas and invariably is considered to be fatal. Most tumors occur in the elderly and most often are located in the pelvis and femur. Radiologically the tumors are speckled like other cartilaginous tumors, but they also have a large lytic component and extend outside the bones. On gross examination they are large infiltrative tumors, with variable foci of obvious cartilage. Histologically the diagnosis is made upon finding areas of cartilage adjacent to high-grade sarcoma, which usually appears like malignant fibrous histiocytoma or unclassified spindle cell sarcoma or osteosarcoma. Despite radical surgery survival rates are dismal. Mesenchymal chondrosarcoma is a rare tumor that accounts for 0.3 percent to 0.5 percent of primary malignant

Some malignant tumors arise after radiotherapy of benign giant cell tumors. and forms neoplastic vascular structures. distending the periosteum and usually infiltrating the soft tissues. The cytoplasm is clear because of its high glycogen content. It is composed of undifferentiated small cells. Blood vessels. 17-53). In the past it invariably was fatal. but usually there is no or only focal sclerosis around it. Giant cell tumors have a tendency to recur after curettage and are considered by some authorities to be a low-grade malignancy. soft. Stromal cells are spindle-shaped and contain a moderate amount of cytoplasm. who have a poor prognosis. Histologically Ewing sarcoma is composed of a monotonous population of primitive small blue cells that have round to oval nuclei and scanty cytoplasm. All forms of Ewing sarcoma have the same chromosomal changes. Males are affected twice as often as females. and it is distinctly uncommon in African-Americans. Reactive osteosclerosis may be seen in the medullary cavity with a "sunburst" form on the periosteum as it is lifted from the bone. the nature and origin of which has not been determined unequivocally.·Ho¿U ½I«zºHj ÂMoš Jnj ®MI£¶ . which are typical of this entity.

The nuclei have finely dispersed chromatin and small nucleoli. On gross examination they consist of reddish-brown soft tissue filling a cystlike space inside the bone (Fig. 17-52. The epimetaphysis contains a hemorrhagic meaty tumor that destroys the cortex and expands the periosteum. Immunohistochemically tumor cells display macrophagerelated markers. Nonepiphyseal giant cell tumors are rare. Generally there also is a large soft-tissue component with illdefined margins. 17-52). which may produce an onionskin pattern. Another important feature of Ewing sarcoma is the presence of reactive bone within the medullary cavity and the periosteum. On gross examination Ewing sarcoma appears as grayish-white.

Approximately 15 percent to 30 percent of tumors recur or metastasize. hemangiopericytoma. and the prognosis is relatively favorable. Aneurysmal bone cyst (ABC) is a relatively common bone lesion of uncertain origin.·Ho¿U ½I«zºHj ÂMoš Jnj ®MI£¶ . Management is surgical. A large soft-tissue component is barely visible. The epithelial cells may resemble basal or squamous cells of the skin and often are palisaded along the periphery of these nests. as well as malignant tumors such as hemangioendothelioma. Radiologically it presents as a destructive lesion of bone extending into soft tissue. with reactive thickenings of the cortex and laminated periosteal reaction. Electron microscopy shows aggregates of glycogen in the cytoplasm of tumor cells. 17-55). spindle-shaped. Most adamantinomas of long bones (90 percent) have been reported in the shaft of the tibia. The medullary cavity of the distal end of the tibia is permeated with tumor that extends into the soft tissue even though it is still covered by periosteum. A. 17-53. arranged into lobules separated by strands of connective tissue (Fig. Histologically the tumor is composed of round. and polygonal cells in a loose myxomatous matrix. Tumor is composed of uniform small blue cells. Microscopically these tumors correspond to their soft-tissue counterparts. which has been described as a " soap bubble " pattern because of numerous cysts rimmed by sclerotic bone. typical of chordoma. On gross examination the tumor appears lobulated and is grayish-tan because of a high content of fibrous tissue. Radiologically the tumors have a typical appearance. B. Most cells show numerous cytoplasmic vacuoles. Chordoma is a tumor of notochord that typically occurs in the midline of the spinal column. 17-54). A fibrous dysplasia component often is seen. The prognosis depends on the size and location of the tumor. glomus tumor. Approximately one half of the tumors are found in the sacrococcygeal region and 37 percent are at the base of the skull in the sphenooccipital region. Multiple cystlike spaces are surrounded by thick sclerotic bone. Miscellaneous Tumors and Tumor-like Conditions Adamantinoma of long bones is a rare low-grade malignant tumor that shows both epithelial and mesenchymal differentiation and microscopically resembles adamantinoma of the jaw. In major cancer treatment reference centers it accounts for 4 percent of all bone tumors. C. Most tumors recur but few metastasize.

MUSCULAR DYSTROPHIES The unsophisticated historical term dystrophy is used clinically to refer to a variety of genetic diseases that are characterized by progressive muscular weakness. Nemaline (rod) myopathy presents in childhood as muscle weakness that predominantly involves the proximal parts of the extremities and the facial muscles. Many small. occasionally with type I muscle fiber hypotrophy (Fig. 66417308 : ¸Ÿ±U 24 ¥°Q . B. some of which are listed in Table 18-1. By EM the nemaline rods appear as condensed filaments resembling Z-band material. Some congenital myopathies are mild and become symptomatic only in later childhood. or perimysial basement membrane (Diagram 18-1). and many congenital myopathies have been linked to specific gene defects. By EM the central core appears as a disorganized aggregate of myofilaments. Enzyme histochemical technique for demonstrating oxidative enzymes was used to show reduced enzyme activity in the center of each muscle fiber. 18-2). Recent genetic studies have shown that such diseases may be linked to mutations of genes encoding unique structural proteins of the muscle fiber cytoplasm. Pathologic findings are constantly being amplified with molecular biology findings. Sarcotubular myopathy describes a heterogeneous group of diseases that may present early in life or even in adulthood. The diagnosis is established by EM. which may appear in childhood or adulthood.

Bacterial meningitis is characterized by exudation of inflammatory cells into the subarachnoid space. In acute purulent meningitis neutrophils predominate, and on gross examination the subarachnoid space appears filled with pus (Fig.

19-31). In chronic bacterial infections lymphocytes and macrophages predominate. In tuberculosis the subarachnoid space at the base of the brain is obliterated by granulomas (Fig. 19-32). Bacterial invasion of brain tissue results in cerebral abscess formation (Fig. 19-33). Over time the abscess becomes walled off by granulation tissue (Fig. 19-34). Incomplete encapsulation leads to the formation of daughter abscesses. Some abscesses may rupture into ventricles or subarachnoid space. Fungal infections of the brain most often are encountered in immunosuppressed persons. Such infections may be caused by Candida albicans, Aspergillus fumigatus, Histo-

plasma capsulatum, and other fungi, which reach the brain hematogenously and produce multiple foci of ischemic necrosis and hemorrhage (Fig. 19-35). Histologically the fungi are found in the wall of the blood vessels and usually are associated with thrombosis, which causes ischemic infarction of the brain tissue. Fungi also invade the tissue around the blood vessels, causing direct destruction of the brain parenchyma. Mucormycosis of the brain, which typically is found in persons with diabetes, may be caused by infections that spread directly from the nasal mucosa, or it may be related to hematogenous dissemination of fungi. Rhinocerebral mucormycosis is characterized by large areas of necrosis, predominantly basilar, representing foci of hemorrhagic infarction and acute cerebritis caused by intravascular growth of fungi (Fig. 19-36).

Protozoal infections usually are found in immunosuppressed persons. Toxoplasma gondii infection is the most prevalent protozoal infection of the CNS in patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). It is characterized by foci of necrotizing cerebritis that evolve into chronic abscesses, usually in the deep gray matter. Microscopically the irregular patches of necrosis are surrounded by zones of vascular congestion, intense mixed inflammatory exudate, reactive astrocytosis, and variable numbers of dormant cysts, pseudocysts, and extracellular tachyzoites (Fig. 19-37). Metazoal infections are rare in the United States but are more common in Asia, Africa, and South America. Cerebral cysticercosis is produced by larvae of the pork tapeworm, Taenia solium, and presents with space-occupying lesions corresponding to encysted parasites (Fig. 19-38).

Viral infections of the CNS occur in a mild and transient form during systemic viral diseases, whereas encephalitis and meningitis caused by encephalitogenic viruses are associated with considerable morbidity and mortality. Viruses evoke a rather stereotypic response, such as diffuse or multifocal distribution, predominant involvement of neurons (gray matter), glial hyperplasia in response to neuronal injury, and perivascular cuffs of lymphocytes (Fig. 19-39). Some viruses have a predilection for certain parts of the brain. Herpesvirus type I commonly involves the limbic areas of the brain (orbitofrontal cortex, insula, cingulate gyrus, amygdala, and hippocampus). Infected areas show massive hemorrhage and

necrosis, and virions maybe demonstrated in neurons by immunohistochemistry or electron microscopy (EM) (Fig. 19-40). Slow viral infections characterized by chronic encephalitis include subacute sclerosing panencephalitis, progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy, and progressive rubella encephalitis. Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis is attributable to the measles virus. CNS infections related to prions cause Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, kuru, and Gerstmann-Straussler-Scheinker syndrome. All of these diseases are characterized by spongiform changes of the brain (Figs. 19-41 and 19-42).

The nervous system is directly or indirectly affected by numerous congenital and acquired metabolic diseases. Central to understanding the pathophysiology and distribution of various lesions is the concept of selective vulnerability, which states that specific cell types or cell populations are more susceptible to a particular insult. An abridged classification of metabolic and toxic diseases of the CNS is given in Table 19-1. Wernicke disease, which most often is encounteretl in alcoholics, is caused by a deficiency of thiamine. It may occur in an acute form, which often produces no gross findings or only minor hemorrhages. Histologic findings include endothelial swelling and proliferation, spongiosis of the neuropil, and astrocytosis in the presence of intact neurons. These changes are most prominent in the mamillary bodies, medial dorsal nuclei of the thalamus, and other nuclei around the third and fourth ventricles. In chronic Wernicke disease mamillary bodies typically show brownish discoloration and atrophy, often associated with calcifications (Fig. 19-43). Microscopically these areas show neuronal loss and astrogliosis and often contain foci of hemosiderin deposition and calcification (Fig. 19-44). Central pontine myelinolysis is a disease that may present with coma, quadriplegia, or no symptoms at all. It is an iatrogenic demyelinating disease caused by overzealous correction of chronic hyponatremia and excessive swings in serum osmolality. It typically affects middorsal-crossing fibers of the pons (Fig. 19-45). Microscopically the affected areas show axonal loss, spheroids, lipophages, and astrocytes with atypical nuclei (Fig. 19-46). Marchiafava-Bignami disease, another rare disease that is associated with alcoholism, shares some of the demyelinating features of central pontine myelinolysis but primarily affects the corpus callosum. Subacute combined degeneration of the spinal cord is caused by deficiency of vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin). Typically associated with atrophic gastritis and pernicious anemia, it presents with spongy changes in myelin, followed by axonal and oligodendrocytic loss, astrocytosis, and mac -

rophagic response. The localization of these changes to the posterior and posterolateral columns, particularly in the upper thoracic cord, their asymmetry, and their transgression of tract boundaries are characteristic (Fig. 19-47). White matter changes also are detected elsewhere. Wilson disease (hepatolenticular degeneration) is a congenital metabolic disorder of the metabolism of copper. Copper accumulates in the liver and brain with cytotoxic effects. CNS lesions resulting from excess copper are most prominent in the putamen, which may show rare active spongy change progressing to cavitary necrosis (Fig. 19-48). Rarely, neocortical layers V and VI are involved.

Inborn Errors of Metabolism
Many genetic diseases affect the brain and produce changes in the gray matter, the white matter, or both. Each disease is characterized by a typical set of pathologic changes, which often occur preferentially in certain parts of the CNS. Lysosomal disorders refer to a diverse group of diseases that are also known as lipidoses and neuronal storage diseases. The deficiency of a catabolic enzyme in these autosomal

recessive diseases results in the accumulation or storage of substrates and intermediate metabolites that cannot be processed further. This group of diseases includes (1) sphingolipidoses (Tay-Sachs or Niemann-Pick disease); (2) glucosaminoglycanoses (mucopolysaccharidoses; Hurler, Hunter, and Sanfilippo syndromes); (3) sialidoses, mucolipidoses, and glycoproteinoses (mannosidoses and fucosidosis); and (4) glycogenoses (Pompe or Andersen disease). Tay-Sachs disease, which is caused by a deficiency of hexosaminidase A, is a prototype of sphingolipidoses. The brain contains ballooned neurons that have vacuolated cytoplasm (Fig. 19-49). By EM these vacuoles correspond to lipid-rich membranous cytoplasmic bodies (Fig. 19-50). Leigh disease (subacute necrotizing encephalomyelopathy) produces changes similar to those seen in Wernicke disease, which may lead to massive necrosis of the putamen, thalamus, brainstem, and cerebral and cerebellar white matter (Fig. 19-51). Leukodystrophies are diseases of infancy and childhood that typically demonstrate diffuse, confluent dysmyelination and atrophy of cerebral and cerebellar white matter. These

changes are accompanied by significant axonal loss and relative sparing of arcuate (subcortical U) fibers (Fig. 19-52). In addition to common features that include loss of myelin and oligodendroglia, accumulation of myelin breakdown products, and reactive astrogliosis, each specific disease shows additional characteristic light and electron microscopic features. Globoid cell leukodystrophy (Krabbe disease) is characterized by accumulation of large uninuclear or multinuclear globoid cells that are periodic acid—Schiff-positive (Fig. 19-53). Myelinolytic diseases are characterized by widespread demyelination of axons. Spongy degeneration of the CNS in infancy (Canavan-Van Bogaert-Bertrand disease) is a prototype of congenital myelinolytic disorders that primarily affect the white matter . of the CNS, which undergoes grossly visible gelatinous to aqueous transformation (Fig. 19-54). Histologically there is spongy vacuolar myelinopathy, with a paucity of myelin breakdown products and macrophages.

Demyelinating disease are sporadic inflammatory diseases that are characterized by immune or infectious destruction of biochemically normal myelin or its supporting cells, with relative sparing of axons. This group of diseases includes multiple sclerosis, acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, and infectious diseases such as progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy and subacute sclerosing panencephalitis. Multiple sclerosis is a relatively common neurologic disease of young adults (20 to 40 years). It has both a genetic and an environmental component, as evidenced by the predominance of disease among persons of certain human leukocyte antigen (HLA) types and its geographic distribution. Clinical and laboratory data suggest that the disease has an autoimmune pathogenesis. The pathologic hallmark of the disease, the demyelinative plaque, is a sharply demarcated lesion, which usually is focal, asymmetric if bilateral, and disrespectful of anatomic boundaries such as tracts or gray matter—white matter junctions (Figs. 19-55 and 19-56). Sites of predilection for the plaques are the pial surface of the optic

nerves and optic chiasms, basis pontis, spinal cord, and periventricular white matter, that is, white matter close to cerebrospinal fluid spaces and deep cerebral veins. Acute lesions contain CD4 + and CD8 + lymphocytes, macrophages, and scattered plasma cells (Fig. 19-57). Demyelination of oligodendroglial cells and relative sparing of axons are typical of chronic lesions (Fig. 19-58). Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) is a demyelinating disease attributable to infection caused by measles virus that lacks a membrane (M) protein. It typically occurs several to many years after infection and has a fatal course. The brain shows destruction and loss of white matter and also loss of neurons from the gray matter. The white matter typically is infiltrated with lymphocytes and plasma cells and shows gliosis. Demyelination and axonal loss are associated with typical intranuclear inclusions in oligodendroglial cells (Fig. 19-59).

Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) is a demyelinating disease that is seen in immunocompromised persons and is believed to be caused by JC polyomavirus. Multifocal destructive lesions of the white matter consist microscopically of lipophages, bizarre hypertrophic astrocytes, demyelinating axons, and enlarged oligodendroglial nuclei that contain amphophilic inclusions (Fig. 19-60).

Neurodegenerative Diseases


Degenerative diseases constitute a heterogeneous group of idiopathic diseases that are primarily germane to the CNS. They share a gradual symmetric loss of specific neurons, groups of neurons, and nerve fiber tracts that often are functionally related (multisystem degeneration). These diseases may be classified according to whether they primarily affect the cortical or subcortical parts of the cerebrum, cerebellum, brainstem and spinal cord, or motor neurons (Table 19-2). Alzheimer disease (senile dementia of Alzheimer type) is characterized by atrophy of gyri and widening of sulci, most prominently in the frontal and temporal lobe and notably the hippocampi (Fig. 19-61). The disease is characterized by a loss of neurons and the typical appearance of senile plaques and neurofibrillary tangles (Fig. 19-62). Senile plaques, also known as neuritic, dendritic, and amyloid plaques, are argyrophilic and are best seen in silver-impregnated slides. They appear as spherical bodies often are located near capillaries. Mature plaques have an amyloid core surrounded by a ring of radiating bulbous irregular neurites and processes of microglial and astrocytes. Neurofibrillary tangles are cytoplasmic bodies composed of coarse linear fibrils. Their appearance varies, depending on their stage and the shape of the cell in which they are located. They are faintly basophilic in routine hematoxylin-eosin (H&E) sections and are best demonstrated by silver impregnation techniques.

Diseases shown in boldface type are the best characterized.

Fig. 19-63. Pick disease. Atrophy of gyri is most prominent in the frontal lobe ("knife edge gyri") (arrow).

Pick disease is an uncommon cause of sporadic dementia. It typically presents with severe brain atrophy (lobar sclerosis), classically involving the orbitofrontal and anterior temporal regions (Fig. 19-63). The corresponding white matter is greatly attenuated and firm, resulting in hydrocephalus ex vacuo. Atrophy of the caudate nucleus may simulate Huntington disease. Microscopically the affected gyri show considerable neuronal loss, prominent astrogliosis, ballooned neurons (Pick cells), and intracytoplasmic globular agyrophilic masses (Pick bodies) (Fig. 19-64). Huntington disease is an autosomal dominant neurodegenerative disease that becomes symptomatic in the fourth decade. It is characterized by dementia, emotional disturbances, and chorea. The most prominent change in the brain is atrophy of the caudate nucleus, which results in enlarge-

ment of the anterior horns of the lateral ventricles (Fig. 19-65). The putamen also is affected, but involvement of other nuclei and cortex is not constant. Microscopically the disease is characterized by astrocytosis and a loss of small and medium-sized neurons. Multisystem atrophy is a term that refers to three clinicopathologic entities: striatonigral degeneration, olivopontocerebellar atrophy, and Shy-Drager syndrome. The disease becomes symptomatic between the fourth and sixth decades and is characterized by parkinsonism, cerebellar atrophy, and autonomic dysfunction. Loss of neurons and myelinated fibers results in atrophy of the cerebellum and pons (Fig. 19-66). Argyrophilic cytoplasmic inclusions in oligodendroglial cells and Pick-like inclusions in neurons are a typical microscopic findings.
