Solid papillary carcinoma of the breast with neuroendocrine features in a pregnant woman: a case report.
Summary of "Solid papillary carcinoma of the breast with neuroendocrine features in a pregnant woman: a case report."
Solid papillary carcinoma, a special form of breast carcinoma with neuroendocrine differentiation, usually presents in women aged 60 years or more. (Koern, 2010). According to our best knowledge, we present the second case of such a tumor in pregnant women.

Carcinoma, Ehrlich Tumor
A transplantable, poorly differentiated malignant tumor which appeared originally as a spontaneous breast carcinoma in a mouse. It grows in both solid and ascitic forms.
A group of carcinomas which share a characteristic morphology, often being composed of clusters and trabecular sheets of round "blue cells", granular chromatin, and an attenuated rim of poorly demarcated cytoplasm. Neuroendocrine tumors include carcinoids, small ("oat") cell carcinomas, medullary carcinoma of the thyroid, Merkel cell tumor, cutaneous neuroendocrine carcinoma, pancreatic islet cell tumors, and pheochromocytoma. Neurosecretory granules are found within the tumor cells. (Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
Carcinoma, Papillary, Follicular
A thyroid neoplasm of mixed papillary and follicular arrangement. Its biological behavior and prognosis is the same as that of a papillary adenocarcinoma of the thyroid. (From DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1271)
Carcinoma 256, Walker
A transplantable carcinoma of the rat that originally appeared spontaneously in the mammary gland of a pregnant albino rat, and which now resembles a carcinoma in young transplants and a sarcoma in older transplants. (Stedman, 25th ed)
A infiltrating (invasive) breast cancer, relatively uncommon, accounting for only 5%-10% of breast tumors in most series. It is often an area of ill-defined thickening in the breast, in contrast to the dominant lump characteristic of ductal carcinoma. It is typically composed of small cells in a linear arrangement with a tendency to grow around ducts and lobules. There is likelihood of axillary nodal involvement with metastasis to meningeal and serosal surfaces. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1205)
Primary pure neuroendocrine carcinoma of the breast is an extremely rare tumor. We report a case of primary solid neuroendocrine carcinoma in a 77-year-old postmenopausal woman who was admitted to the...
Bilateral breast carcinoma accounts for approximately 5% of all patients with breast cancer, while neuroendocrine breast carcinomas comprise less than 5% of invasive breast carcinomas. In addition, mo...
Abstract The solid variant of papillary renal cell carcinoma, when strictly defined as a tumor in which no true papillae can be identified, is extremely rare, with only a few cases reported in the lit...
We describe a case of encapsulated papillary carcinoma (EPC), apocrine variant in a 50-year-old woman. The patient presented a cystic lesion in her right breast, measuring 8 cm in diameter, containing...
Primary neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC) of the breast appears to be a rare neoplasm. Due to the limited number of the cases, a definitive therapeutic option for the disease has not yet been established...
This clinical study is being conducted at multiple sites to determine the best confirmed response rate, safety, and tolerability of GSK1363089 treatment in papillary renal cell carcinoma....
This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of atiprimod treatment in patients with low to intermediate grade neuroendocrine carcinoma who have metastatic or unresectable local-region...
This study is an extension study to the Callisto protocol CP-106. Subjects must have completed all 12 treatment cycles of CP-106 without disease progression as per RECIST criteria,to be e...
To evaluate the preliminary efficacy and safety of RAD001 as monotherapy for first-line treatment of patients with metastatic papillary carcinoma of the kidney.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between prognosis and fine needle aspiration cytology character of papillary thyroid cancer.
