The correct staging of potentially metastatic melanoma is essential for an appropriate therapeutic attitude. Current methods include computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasonography and scintigraphy. Another tool is whole-body positron tomography using the radiopharmaceutical 2-fluorine-18-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose as an emitter because it accumulates inside neoplasms, especially melanoma. We report two cases of malignant melanoma in which computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging suggested visceral metastatic spread. In contrast, whole-body positron emission tomography indicated the absence of metastases, and this was confirmed by histological examination of the organs where metastases were suspected. Whole-body positron emission tomography appears to have high specificity and sensitivity for clinical melanoma staging. [less ▲]

Malignant melanoma (MM) micrometastases are basically seen in three locations inside the peritumoral dermis. They are localized (i) inside the interstitial sector of the dermal stroma; (ii) abutted to the external surface of the microvasculature; and (iii) more rarely present inside vascular channels. Single-cell and paucicellular micrometastases may be disclosed using immunohistochemistry even in the absence of larger microsatellites, which represent micronodular nests of metastatic cells. The presence of microsatellites is frequently tied to markers of MM aggressiveness including thickness and the Ki-67 index. Micrometastases may be present in the same conditions, but even as early as thin MM showing a small growth fraction. Microsatellites as well as micrometastases appear to predict locoregional extension and decreased relapse-free interval, but not distant metastasis and overall survival. These considerations have implications for patient care since patients with microsatellites and micrometastases are now included in the clinical stage III category of the disease. Their implication as a prognostic factor is not fully dependent on or linked to other markers of MM aggressiveness. [less ▲]

The majority of solitary fibrous tumors (SFTs) of the pleura are benign, but 10-30% locally recur or metastasize. Pathogenic factors relevant to the determinism of their biological properties are largely unknown. Cytogenetic data on SFTs of the pleura are sparse. We report herein a case of a malignant SFT of the pleura where successful karyotyping was obtained from the primary and recurrent tumors. The initial karyotype showed two abnormal clones: 48, XY; +8; +8; del(9)(q22; q32) [19] and 46, XY, t(1; 16)(q25;p 12) [7]. Culture of the recurrent tumor yielded one clone identical to the dominant clone of the initial karyotype. Demonstration of a recurrent abnormal karyotype largely supports its relevance to the malignant clone and suggests a role of supernumerary chromosome(s) 8 in the determinism of malignant behavior in SFT.

In forensic context, the psychological or psychiatric assessment occurs in a particular and different way than the usual practice in psychotherapy, and malingering has a specific dimension in this context. This article focuses on malingering in situations of damages compensations. We analyse this behaviour through the study of the victimisation process, the family influence, the existent psychological tests and the examiner’s role. The injured persons are placed or place their-self in a victim position that seems to be a factor involved in their reconstruction process and by this way, in the use of malingering. The family has also a strong influence on the management of the traumatic incident and by this way, on the (conscious or unconscious) choice of malingering, particularly for children (by example, in the Munchausen by proxy syndrome). Finally, our study shows how the examiner’s role and attitude are central in the functioning and the interaction of the two mechanisms (management of the event/reconstruction by the victim and malingering). Although psychological tests can be used in order to discover malingering, a meticulous assessment, empathy, and neutral and benevolent attention are indispensable elements in order to assure authentic complaints and thus to prevent malingering.
