Summary of "Comparison of Anal Versus Rectal Staging in the Prognostication of Rectal Squamous Cell Carcinoma: A Population-Based Analysis."

Rectal squamous cell carcinoma is a rare malignancy with limited data regarding management and prognosis. It is also unknown whether a rectal squamous cell cancer staging system should be based on size, as for anal squamous cell carcinoma, or depth of invasion, as for rectal adenocarcinoma.

A compound tubular gland, located around the eyes and nasal passages in marine animals and birds, the physiology of which figures in water-electrolyte balance. The Pekin duck serves as a common research animal in salt gland studies. A rectal gland or rectal salt gland in the dogfish shark is attached at the junction of the intestine and cloaca and aids the kidneys in removing excess salts from the blood.
