Cyst, endometriosis, borderline tumor, CUP : Diagnostic stations of a supposedly simple renal cyst.
Summary of "Cyst, endometriosis, borderline tumor, CUP : Diagnostic stations of a supposedly simple renal cyst."
Symptomatic renal cysts are not uncommon and can be treated by puncture, sclerotherapy, or laparoscopic fenestration. We report the case of a female patient in whom the diagnosis of a supposedly simple symptomatic renal cyst changed over endometriosis and borderline malignancy to a CUP. This case shows that in spite of all diagnostic measures and care the final diagnosis can be a surprise.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Cysts formed from epithelial inclusions in the lines of fusion of the embryonic processes which form the jaws. They include nasopalatine or incisive canal cyst, incisive papilla cyst, globulomaxillary cyst, median palatal cyst, median alveolar cyst, median mandibular cyst, and nasoalveolar cyst.
Non-neoplastic tumor-like lesions at joints, developed from the SYNOVIAL MEMBRANE of a joint through the JOINT CAPSULE into the periarticular tissues. They are filled with SYNOVIAL FLUID with a smooth and translucent appearance. A synovial cyst can develop from any joint, but most commonly at the back of the knee, where it is known as POPLITEAL CYST.
Most common follicular odontogenic cyst. Occurs in relation to a partially erupted or unerupted tooth with at least the crown of the tooth to which the cyst is attached protruding into the cystic cavity. May give rise to an ameloblastoma and, in rare instances, undergo malignant transformation.
Cyst due to the occlusion of the duct of a follicle or small gland.
Cysts found in the jaws and arising from epithelium involved in tooth formation. They include follicular cysts (e.g., primordial cyst, dentigerous cyst, multilocular cyst), lateral periodontal cysts, and radicular cysts. They may become keratinized (odontogenic keratocysts). Follicular cysts may give rise to ameloblastomas and, in rare cases, undergo malignant transformation.
INTRODUCTION: Studies of clear cell adenocarcinoma of the ovary (CCAO) arising from endometriosis are scant. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The author reviewed 13 cases CCAO of our pathology laboratory for th...
Aim: The aim of this study was to determine the role of serum and peritoneal interleukin (IL)-6, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α and glycodelin A levels as diagnostic markers of endometriosis in ado...
Endometriosis is a relatively common disease in women, usually of reproductive age. In rare occasions, endometriosis may occur in unusual body sites, including extragonadal, extra-pelvic sites, or in...
SELDI-TOF MS analysis of ovarian cyst fluids revealed that peaks m/z 8696 and 8825 discriminate malignant, borderline, and benign tumors. These peaks correspond to isoforms of apoA2. ELISA demonstrate...
INTRODUCTION: Substantial histopathology data provide evidence that endometriosis might be viewed as a precursor lesion of endometrioid and clear cell carcinoma of the ovary, via intermediary atypical...
Silver nitrate treatment of Bartholin's cyst or abscess will be compared to marsupialization treatment. It is expected that silver nitrate treatment is effective, simple, inexpensive and...
The purpose of this trial is to compare two standard of care treatments for removing epidermal cysts. Surgical excision removes the entire cyst but requires a larger hole in the skin. A...
The purpose of this study is to investigate differences in protein expression profiles of blood and peritoneal fluid samples obtained from patients who do, and those who do not, have endom...
Endometriosis is a condition in which abnormal growth of tissue histologically resembling the lining of the uterus (endometrium) is present outside of the uterus. This study will investiga...
