In patients with immature teratoma of the ovary, blood-borne metastasis to organ parenchyma, such as the lungs, liver, or brain, are uncommon. Moreover, soft tissue metastasis is extremely rare. We describe a 31-year-old woman with an immature teratoma of the left ovary, which metastasized to soft tissue of the right thigh after surgery. Because of the rarity of this condition, we report the results of treatment and review the literature.

Although immature teratoma of the ovary is a rare disease, its pathologic grading, especially between low-grade (grade 1) and high-grade (grade 2 or 3) immature teratomas, is important for optimal the...
Mature cystic teratoma of the ovary is one of the most common benign tumours among reproductive aged women. Malignant transformation of a mature cystic teratoma is uncommon and metastatic malignancy i...
General orthopaedic surgeons must learn how to appropriately evaluate patients with soft-tissue masses who present at their office. Although the incidence of benign soft-tissue sarcomas substantially ...
Soft-tissue sarcoma (STS) rarely metastasizes to lymph node compared to carcinoma. Fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) carries a pivotal role in diagnosis of metastatic tumor to lymph node. This st...
The case report describes a teratoma of the sellar region with a gland forming and an immature, relatively clear undifferentiated component without signs of anaplasia. Both components express TTF-1 in...
The investigators report a case of a 39-year-old man who presented an anterior mediastinal cystic mature teratoma. Those kind of tumor contain elements derived from more than one of the th...
In this study the investigators treat PM oligometastatic patients with SBRT. Our objective is to evaluate rate of local control of treated lesions in patients treated with Intensity Modula...
The aim of this study is to aspirate immature oocytes from antral follicles and mature the oocytes in vitro. These mature oocytes will serve for fertilization and the creation of embryos w...
This study evaluates the impact of soft tissue grafts on soft tissue recession following immediate implant, provisional and bone graft placement in compromised sockets. One third of the pa...
Translational studies in cancer research can be impeded by the lack of high-quality clinical data that can be correlated with research questions. This is particularly true in the case of r...
A true neoplasm composed of a number of different types of tissue, none of which is native to the area in which it occurs. It is composed of tissues that are derived from three germinal layers, the endoderm, mesoderm, and ectoderm. They are classified histologically as mature (benign) or immature (malignant).

Injuries of tissue other than bone. The concept is usually general and does not customarily refer to internal organs or viscera. It is meaningful with reference to regions or organs where soft tissue (muscle, fat, skin) should be differentiated from bones or bone tissue, as "soft tissue injuries of the hand".
The assessment, treatment, and management of soft tissue injury or dysfunction. Therapy is designed to reduce tension and irritation in affected tissues and may include MASSAGE; muscle stretching, or direct pressure on muscles, connective tissue, and TRIGGER POINTS.
A rare teratoid tumor of the ovary composed almost entirely of thyroid tissue, with large follicles containing abundant colloid. Occasionally there are symptoms of hyperthyroidism. 5-10% of struma ovarii become malignant, the only absolute criterion for which is the presence of metastasis. (Dorland, 27th ed; Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
Infections of non-skeletal tissue, i.e., exclusive of bone, ligaments, cartilage, and fibrous tissue. The concept is usually referred to as skin and soft tissue infections and usually subcutaneous and muscle tissue are involved. The predisposing factors in anaerobic infections are trauma, ischemia, and surgery. The organisms often derive from the fecal or oral flora, particularly in wounds associated with intestinal surgery, decubitus ulcer, and human bites. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1688)
Hepatology is the study of liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, and pancreas, and diseases associated with them. This includes viral hepatitis, alcohol damage, cirrhosis and cancer. As modern lifestyles change, with alcoholism and cancer becoming more promi...
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
