Summary of "Endometriosis-associated ovarian carcinomas."

To the Editor: Wiegand et al. (Oct. 14 issue)(1) report that ARID1A mutations were found in 46% of ovarian clear-cell carcinomas and in 30% of endometrioid carcinomas. This finding raises the idea that such tumors may be of müllerian rather than coelomic derivation. The three most common types of ovarian carcinoma - namely, serous, endometrioid, and mucinous - are histologically identical to tumors of the fallopian tube, endometrium, and endocervix, which are tumors known to arise from the embryonic müllerian duct.(2) To the Editor: Wiegand et al. have identified ARID1A mutations in endometriosis-associated ovarian carcinomas, providing a first report of . . .

Paradigm Shift in the Management Strategy for Epithelial Ovarian Cancer.

The hypothesis on the pathogenesis of epithelial ovarian cancer continues to evolve. Although epithelial ovarian cancer had been assumed to arise from the coelomic epithelium of the ovarian surface, i...

"Soft marker" evaluation of ovarian mobility in the normal and endometriotic ovary in the detection of deep endometriosis.

To determine the prevalence of ovarian immobility with endometriomas as well as the diagnostic accuracy of transvaginal sonographic (TVS) ovarian mobility in both the presence and absence of endometri...

Aberrant Methylation of the E-Cadherin Gene Promoter Region in Endometrium and Ovarian Endometriotic Cysts of Patients with Ovarian Endometriosis.

The loss of E-cadherin expression plays an important role in the development of endometriosis, but the molecular mechanism is not clear to date. It has been confirmed that the hypermethylation of the ...

Markers of deep infiltrating endometriosis in patients with ovarian endometrioma: a predictive model.

The purpose of the study was to develop an easily applicable predictive model to predict deep infiltrating endometriosis in patients with ovarian endometrioma.

Overexpression of RNF2 is positively associated with ovarian carcinoma aggressiveness and indicative of poor patient survival.

It has been reported that RNF2, a core member of the polycomb repressor complex 1 (PRC1) complex, is frequently overexpressed in several types of human cancers. However, abnormalities in RNF2 in ovari...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A carcinoma composed mainly of epithelial elements with little or no stroma. Medullary carcinomas of the breast constitute 5%-7% of all mammary carcinomas; medullary carcinomas of the thyroid comprise 3%-10% of all thyroid malignancies. (From Dorland, 27th ed; DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1141; Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)

Cessation of ovarian function after MENARCHE but before the age of 40, without or with OVARIAN FOLLICLE depletion. It is characterized by the presence of OLIGOMENORRHEA or AMENORRHEA, elevated GONADOTROPINS, and low ESTRADIOL levels. It is a state of female HYPERGONADOTROPIC HYPOGONADISM. Etiologies include genetic defects, autoimmune processes, chemotherapy, radiation, and infections.

A complication of OVULATION INDUCTION in infertility treatment. It is graded by the severity of symptoms which include OVARY enlargement, multiple OVARIAN FOLLICLES; OVARIAN CYSTS; ASCITES; and generalized EDEMA. The full-blown syndrome may lead to RENAL FAILURE, respiratory distress, and even DEATH. Increased capillary permeability is caused by the vasoactive substances, such as VASCULAR ENDOTHELIAL GROWTH FACTORS, secreted by the overly-stimulated OVARIES.

Methods used for assessment of ovarian function.
