Mesonephric-like adenocarcinoma is a recently described adenocarcinoma of the uterine body and ovary with overlapping features of mesonephric adenocarcinoma and endometrioid carcinoma. It is thought to be a mullerian adenocarcinoma that has differentiated along mesonephric lines. A 71-year-old woman had a 3cm endometrial mass that invaded myometrium without gross or microscopic evidence of cervical involvement. The tumor had a variety of architectural patterns and produced prominent stromal hyalinization co...
Uterine cancer is the fifth most common cancer in women worldwide with an estimated 320,000 annual diagnoses. Its most common form, endometrioid adenocarcinoma of the endometrium (endometrial adenocarcinoma [EAC]), is thought to develop through excessive proliferation of endometrial glands, and then increasing steadily in incidence. The current standard treatment for EAC is hysterectomy, which is often curative. However, it may be unacceptably expensive for women with severe medical comorbidities, those who...
The report describes a 55-year-old woman with postmenopausal abnormal vaginal spotting. PET/CT revealed focal hot F-FDG uptake in the fundus portion of the uterine cavity, and pathology of hysteroscopic dilation and curettage showed endometrioid intraepithelial neoplasia of uterine endometrium, an endometrial precancer. This case points to the significance of F-FDG PET/CT in determining the dilation and curettage site for the postmenopausal women with abnormal vaginal spotting. Increased F-FDG activity in t...
Gastrin-releasing peptide (GRP) is thought to play a role in the metastatic process of various malignancies. The more stable precursor of GRP, pro-GRP (ProGRP), has been shown to be secreted by neuroendocrine tumors. This study was designed to assess the validity of ProGRP as a diagnostic marker in endometrioid adenocarcinomas (EAs) of the endometrium.
Cyclin D1 (CCND1) is a core cell cycle regulator and is frequently overexpressed in human cancers, often via amplification, translocation or post-transcription regulation. Accumulating evidence suggests that mutations of the CCND1 gene that result in nuclear retention and constitutive activation of CDK4/6 kinases are oncogenic drivers in cancer. However, the spectrum of CCND1 mutations across human cancers has not been systematically investigated. Here, we retrospectively mined whole-exome sequencing data f...
Uterine carcinosarcomas are rare tumors that account for less than 5% of all uterine malignancies. These tumors (previously called malignant mixed Müllerian tumors) are dedifferentiated carcinomas that comprise carcinomatous and sarcomatous elements and arise from a single malignant clone. They are considered a high-risk variant of endometrial adenocarcinoma because carcinosarcomas share more similarities in epidemiology, risk factors, and clinical behavior with endometrial carcinoma than with uterine sarc...
To determine the survival benefits of additional adjuvant hysterectomy in the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) stage I-II cervical adenocarcinoma patients treated with radiochemotherapy.
Minimally invasive hysterectomy is now routinely used for women with uterine cancer. Most studies of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) for endometrial cancer have focused on low-risk, endometrioid tumors with few reports of the safety of the procedure for women with higher risk histologic subtypes.
Metastatic tumors of the appendix are rare. Endometrial cancer tends to metastasize by directly invading neighboring structures; the lung, liver, bones, and brain are common sites of distant metastasis. Herein, we present a case of a solitary endometrial metastatic tumor in the appendiceal mucosa without serosal involvement that mimicked a primary adenocarcinoma of the appendix. The patient who had undergone a radical hysterectomy for an endometrioid adenocarcinoma 3 years earlier presented to the hospital ...
The coexistence of chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma (CLL/SLL) with different gynecologic neoplasms is a rare phenomenon. Here, we report a case of simultaneously developed CLL/SLL with endometrioid-type uterine cancer.
There is currently no blood-based marker in routine use for endometrial cancer patients. Such a marker could potentially be used for early detection, but it could also help to track tumor recurrence following hysterectomy. This is important, as extra-vaginal recurrence of endometrial endometrioid adenocarcinoma is usually incurable. This proof-of-principle study was designed to determine if tumor-associated mutations could be detected in cell-free DNA from the peripheral blood of early and late stage endome...
Little information is available on the characteristics of elderly patients starting TNFα antagonist treatment for rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The objective of this work was to compare prescription patterns in RA patients younger vs. older than 75 years.
Uterine rupture is a rare complication in second trimester termination of pregnancy (TOP) with an overall incidence of up to 1.1%. There are concerns that patients with previous caesarean section(s) were at an increased risk of uterine rupture. However, there is no published data in our local population to date. This study aims to identify the incidence and contributing factors for uterine rupture in women undergoing TOP in Singapore.
PSF3 (Partner of SLD Five 3) is a member of the heterotetrameric complex termed GINS. Previous studies have shown that PSF3 is up-regulated in several cancers and is associated with tumor malignancy. However, the clinicopathological significance of PSF3 expression in endometrial lesions is still poorly understood. To investigate whether PSF3 could serve as a useful biomarker for endometrial carcinomas, we performed immunohistochemical analysis of PSF3 expression. In 155 cases of endometrial carcinomas (ECs)...
Ovarian malignancy is associated with one of the highest rates of death among gynecological reproductive system malignancies. While progress has been made in surgical and postoperative adjuvant treatment approaches, the early atypical clinical manifestations, quick progression, and lack of the effective early screening means imply that the prognosis remains poor. Bilateral ovarian cancers are common, but different types of primary bilateral ovarian carcinomas are extremely rare.
There have been several proposed changes for the 8th edition of the American Joint Commission on Cancer (AJCC) for pancreatic adenocarcinoma. The aim of this study was to evaluate the prognostic value of the new staging system for patients with pancreatic adenocarcinoma, especially in stage III patients.
The role of gastric resection in treating metastatic gastric adenocarcinoma is controversial. In the present study, we reviewed the short- and long-term outcomes of stage IV patients undergoing surgery.
Uterine contractility out of the gestational phase, during the menstrual cycle and the habitual functional variations of the organ, this is one of the responsible mechanisms for reproduction and fertility, due to its direct action in the mechanisms conducting the spermatozoa to the ovule and in the decidual implantation. Pathologies such as uterine leiomyoma, endometriosis, adenomyosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome, as well as the use of intrauterine devices and oral contraceptives, may alter a functionality...
Endometriosis is a well‑known risk factor for ovarian cancer. The genetic changes that characterise endometriosis are poorly understood; however, the mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR) pathway is involved. In this study, we investigated the expression of key mTOR components in endometriosis and the effects of rapalogues using an endometrioid ovarian carcinoma cell line (MDAH 2774) as an in vitro model. Gene expression of mTOR, DEPTOR, Rictor and Raptor was assessed by qPCR in 24 endometriosis patient...
Most patients with esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) present de novo. Although this may be due to inadequate screening strategies, the precise reason for this observation is not clear.. We compared survival of patients with prevalent EAC with and without synchronous BE/intestinal metaplasia of the esophagus (IM) at the time of EAC diagnosis.
Patients with Lynch syndrome have up to a 24% risk of developing ovarian carcinoma, but universal mismatch repair (MMR) protein testing of ovarian carcinomas is not standard practice in most institutions. We reviewed 104 unselected ovarian endometrioid carcinomas (OEC) for various clinicopathologic features to determine if any are predictive of MMR loss. Immunohistochemistry for all 4 MMR proteins was performed followed by MLH1 promoter methylation analysis when indicated. Overall, patients had a mean age o...
Eradication of early Barrett's neoplasia by endoscopic resection and radiofrequency ablation is safe and effective. In T1b adenocarcinoma, standard of care remains controversial. We investigated the therapeutic outcome between high-grade dysplasia (HGD)/mucosal adenocarcinoma and submucosal adenocarcinoma in Barrett's patients. We hypothesised similar outcome in low-risk (LR) T1b compared to T1a/HGD.
Women with uterine fibroids (UF) may undergo less invasive procedures than hysterectomy, including myomectomy, endometrial ablation (EA), and uterine artery embolization (UAE); however, long-term need for reintervention is not well characterized. We estimated reintervention rates for 5 years and identified predictors of reintervention.
Oncogenic fusion genes consisting of echinoderm microtubule-associated protein-like 4 (EML4) and anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) can be detected in 5-7% of lung adenocarcinoma cases. The prevalence of ALK rearrangement in non-adenocarcinoma, non-small cell lung cancers (NA-NSCLC) is currently unknown. In addition, the efficacy of crizotinib in these patients has not been well established.
The aim of this article is to compare the effect of uterine desarterialization (UD) and hypogastric arteries ligature (HAL) in uterine and ovarian blood flow indirectly measured with the pulsatility index (PI).
