Uterine smooth muscle tumors of uncertain malignant potential: a case presentation.

Summary of "Uterine smooth muscle tumors of uncertain malignant potential: a case presentation."

A 42-year-old virgin woman was admitted to our clinic with increasing menorrhagia and dysmenorrhea for several months. A pelvic ultrasound scan showed a 9 × 7 cm heterogeneous mass in the uterine cavity. Pelvic magnetic resonance imaging showed a large non-homogeneous tumor mass measuring 97 × 56 mm in the uterine cavity. After intravenous contrast material, cystic necrotic areas with marked contrast enhancement were observed in the solid lesion. Tumor markers were all within normal ranges. The patient underwent laparotomy, and total hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy were performed. Our case was diagnosed as uterine smooth muscle tumor of uncertain malignant potential (STUMP). The patient was put on a close clinical follow-up schedule, and is doing well without recurrence in 2 years later. Patients with STUMP should be counseled regarding the potential for recurrence as leiomyosarcoma, and may require closer surveillance than a yearly examination and may need a consultation with a gynecologic oncologist.

Abdominal leiomyosarcomatosis after surgery with external morcellation for occult smooth muscle tumors of uncertain malignant potential: A case report.

Although rare, cases of abdominal sarcomatosis (AS) after laparotomy/laparoscopic interventions for uterine smooth muscle tumors of uncertain malignant potential (STUMP) have been reported.

Immunoexpression of p16 in uterine leiomyomas with infarct-type necrosis: an analysis of 35 cases.

Uterine leiomyosarcomas frequently show p16 immunoexpression. However, p16 may also be expressed in some benign leiomyoma variants such as leiomyomas with bizarre nuclei and cellular leiomyomas, limit...

Uterine Inflammatory Myofibroblastic Tumors Frequently Harbor ALK Fusions With IGFBP5 and THBS1.

Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) can occur in a number of anatomic sites, including the uterus. Like its soft tissue counterpart, uterine IMT frequently expresses ALK and harbors ALK genetic r...

Is differential expression of p16INK4a based on the classification of uterine smooth muscle tumors associated with a different prognosis? A meta-analysis.

We conducted a meta-analysis to examine p16INK4a expression in uterine smooth muscle tumors (USMTs). Although the prognostic value of tumor suppressor p16INK4a has been elucidated in a variety of canc...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A benign neoplasm of muscle (usually smooth muscle) with glandular elements. It occurs most frequently in the uterus and uterine ligaments. (Stedman, 25th ed)

A relatively rare smooth muscle tumor found most frequently in the wall of the gastrointestinal tract, especially in the stomach. It is similar to other smooth muscle tumors but may become very large and hemorrhage and exhibit small cystic areas. Simple excision is almost always curative. (From Dorland, 27th ed; DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1354)

Precursor cells destined to differentiate into smooth muscle myocytes (MYOCYTES, SMOOTH MUSCLE).

Tumors or cancer located in muscle tissue or specific muscles. They are differentiated from NEOPLASMS, MUSCLE TISSUE which are neoplasms composed of skeletal, cardiac, or smooth muscle tissue, such as MYOSARCOMA or LEIOMYOMA.

A tumor composed of smooth muscle tissue, as opposed to leiomyoma, a tumor derived from smooth muscle.
