Objective To discuss the imaging findings and pathological features of primary pulmonary lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma (LELC). Methods Imaging and pathological data of 13 patients (9 male and 4 female, age from 17 to 72 years, median age 52 years) with pathology-proven primary pulmonary LELC from January 2010 to March 2015 were retrospectively analyzed. Thirteen patients underwent X-ray examination, two of them underwent non-enhanced CT scan, eight underwent non-enhanced and enhanced CT scans, one underwent non-enhanced MR scan. All imaging data including location, number, shape, size and density of lesions were analyzed by two experienced chest radiologists respectively and reached an agreement after consultations. Surgery was performed in 11 cases and aspiration biopsy in 2 cases. HE staining was performed in all cases and immunohistochemistry staining in 6 cases. Results All thirteen primary pulmonary LELC were unilateral. Nine peripheral tumors and four central tumors were identified. Lobulations (n=11), spiculas (n=7), vessel convergences (n=3), vascular encasements (n=2), pleural indentations (n=4) and punctuate calcification sign (n=1) were seen in the CT images. Thirteen tumors had diameters ranging from 1.3—11.0 cm, average diameter of (4.4 ± 2.7) cm, and all showed homogeneous density in non-enhanced CT. CT value ranged from 22—48 HU, average value of(34± 10)HU, and during arterial phase it ranged from 33—70 HU, average value of(53 ± 13)HU;and during venous phase it ranged from 43—86 HU, average value of(66±14)HU;the tumor had long T1 and long T2 signal in non-enhanced MR scan, and signals were homogeneous. Pathologically, the tumor was from pleomorphic epithelial with large cells, syncytia in the infiltration of lymphocytes or accompanied with collagenzation. Large nucleus showed vacuole-shape. Immunochemistry CK(+), P63(+), CK5/6(+), CK14(-) supported the diagnosis of LELC. Conclusions There are certain imaging characteristics for primary pulmonary LELC. Histopathological and immunohistochemistry examination could provide the definitive diagnose.

Purpose To investigate the location and distribution of EV71 receptors scavenger receptor class B member 2 ( SCARB2 ) and human P-selectin glycoprotein ligand-1 (PSGL-1) in lung tissues of fatal hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD), healthy children and adults. Methods The expression of EV71 receptors SCARB2 and PSGL-1 was detected by using immunohistochemistry in lung tissues of 15 autopsies of HFMD, 3 of healthy children, 8 of healthy adults. Results SCARB2 distributed in bronchial, bronchioli ep-ithelia, alveolar epithelial cells and inflammatory cells among HFMD, healthy children and adults. No significant difference was noted of the positive rates of SCARB2 expression among these three groups (P>0. 05). PSGL-1 distributed in bronchial and bronchioli epi-thelium of adults, but no PSGL-1 expression was found in HFMD and healthy children. The positive rates of PSGL-1 were 100%, 0, 0 in bronchial and bronchioli epithelium among the three groups, respectively (P0. 05). Further, no PSGL-1 expression was observed in alveolar epithelia cells of all groups tested. Conclusions EV71 receptor SCARB2 distributes in bronchial, bronchioli, alveolar epithelial and inflammatory cells of HFMD. Meanwhile, PSGL-1 only distributes in inflammatory cells of HFMD, suggesting that SCARB2 possibly plays a role on HFMD infection.
