Ocular adnexal amyloidosis may represent localized manifestation of an underlying systemic process. Accurate identification of the amyloid fibrils can guide the systemic work up and treatment. The aim of this study was to characterize subtypes of ocular adnexal amyloidosis using immunohistochemistry and mass spectrometric analysis and to correlate with ocular involvement and systemic association.
An adnexal mass may be diagnosed after a routine pelvic ultrasonographic examination or an emergent hospital admission due to rupture of ectopic pregnancy, adnexal torsion or rupture of tuboovarian abscess. It is necessary to evaluate the origin of the mass initially and to classify patients who need further evaluation and treatment for an urgent condition.
Endometriotic cysts a common benign gynaecological disease in women of reproductive age. We report an unusual case of ruptured endometrioma associated with increased CA 19-9. A 27-year-old woman presented with an acute abdomenal adnexal mass and elevated CA 19-9. The initial diagnosis of ovarian malignancy turned out to be a ruptured endometrioma, confirmed during surgery and in the histopathological report.
A positive urine pregnancy test (UPT) with adnexal mass in ectopic pregnancy is not the ultimate diagnosis. The incidence of ectopic pregnancy is about 27 per 1000 pregnancies . On average, about 6-16% will present to an emergency department with first-trimester bleeding and abdominal pain . On presenting with these symptoms with the simultaneous presence of an adnexal mass and an empty uterus, a UPT is of paramount importance to determine whether the symptoms are pregnancy related or not. When the UP...
Evaluation of adnexal masses in children and adolescents relies on imaging for appropriate diagnosis and management. Pelvic MRI is indicated and adds value for all adnexal masses when surgery is considered or when ultrasound findings are indeterminate. Specifically, features on MR imaging can help distinguish between benign and malignant lesions, which not only influences the decision between surgery and conservative treatment, but also the type of surgery to be performed, including potential use of fertili...
To characterize adnexal lesions detected in patients who had undergone previous hysterectomy with one or both ovaries conserved, and to define the clinical, pathological and surgical characteristics of the adnexal lesions in these patients.
The incidence of adnexal masses in pregnancy has increased significantly over the last decades and this is mostly because of the widespread use of ultrasound for pregnancy surveillance. Although a clear majority of adnexal masses found in the first trimester are functional cysts, which have a small diameter and disappear spontaneously, those that do persist into the second and third trimester require ultrasound surveillance for proper management. The presence of a large adnexal mass in the third trimester o...
In the female genital tract, extra-uterine leiomyomas such as those that arise in the ovary and paraovarian/paratubal regions are rare. Currently, little is known about the background genetic changes in such adnexal leiomyomas. Recent studies have found that the MED12 mutation is common in uterine leiomyomas, which suggests that such mutations may play an oncogenic role in smooth muscle neoplasms in females. Herein, we examined a series of ovarian and other adnexal leiomyomas in terms of MED12 mutational st...
To investigate the pregnancy and neonatal outcomes of surgical treatment for adnexal torsion (AT) during pregnancy.
Microcystic adnexal carcinoma (MAC) is a rare infiltrative cutaneous tumor, but with its locally aggressive nature, high rate of recurrence, and rare metastatic potential, it is an important clinical entity to consider when faced with a nipple lesion. These tumors are frequently misdiagnosed based on superficial biopsy alone.
The purpose of our study was to assess computed tomographic (CT) findings of adnexal torsion through a matched case-control analysis.
Recent insights in high-grade serous ovarian cancer development are pointing to the fallopian tubes as likely place of origin and not the ovaries themselves. This may have consequences for patients with increased risk of ovarian cancer. Adnexal removal is currently recommended for this patient group at an age of 35-45, which leads to premature menopause.
The aim of this study was to explore the sequential use of risk malignancy index (RMI) combined with contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (CEUS) in identification diagnosis of adnexal masses.This study contained 2 steps: first, 151 patients were analyzed retrospectively with RMI 1, RMI 2, and RMI 3 indices; receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves were plotted to analyze area under the curves (AUC), and then RMI cut-off value was obtained according to maximum Youden index (YI, Sensitivity + Specifici...
Hydrochlorothiazide use has been associated with markedly increased risk of squamous cell carcinoma. No previous studies have investigated the association between hydrochlorothiazide use and the risk of Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) and malignant adnexal skin tumors (MAST).
Microcystic adnexal carcinoma (MAC) is a very rare and locally aggressive sweat gland tumour. MAC has been well reported presenting as a periocular cutaneous lesion, rarely with subsequent direct orbital invasion and only once as a primary orbital lesion. Local recurrence is frequent after primary surgical excision and the role of adjuvant radiotherapy is ill-defined. We describe a case of orbital MAC treated successfully with radiotherapy after incomplete margin clearance post exenteration surgery and revi...
The reported frequency of malignant diseases in unilocular cysts varies in different studies, giving conflicting results. To quantify the risk of malignancies among echoic and anechoic unilocular adnexal cysts, in premenopausal and postmenopausal women, we performed a PubMed/MEDLINE search of papers published in English evaluating the histopathological diagnoses of removed ovarian cysts diagnosed as simple unilocular cysts at pre-operative ultrasound examination. From 34 selected publications, we extracted ...
Microcystic adnexal carcinoma (MAC) is a low-grade malignant tumor of the skin. Histologically, this tumor shows a biphasic pattern, with cords and nests of basaloid cells, as well as keratin horn cysts. This biphasic histological appearance has been interpreted by some authors as a sign of double eccrine and folliculosebaceous-apocrine differentiation, whereas some other authors defend an solely eccrine differentiation. In this context, sebaceous differentiation in MAC would support the first option. Howev...
Ovaries and fallopian tubes are frequently affected by cystic pathology. Laparoscopic surgery to perform cystectomy, oophorectomy and salpingo-oophorectomy is the gold standard for the treatment of the presumed benign adnexal cysts [1,2]. Although their malignant transformation is a rare eventuality, the rules of oncological surgery stipulate that efforts must be used to prevent any risk of tumor dissemination if the definitive anatomopathological examination prove to be malignant [2-5]. Since open cystecto...
The level of body-mass index (BMI) associated with the lowest risk of death remains unclear. Although differences in muscle mass limit the utility of BMI as a measure of adiposity, no study has directly examined the effect of muscle mass on the BMI-mortality relationship.
Nagy et al have published a research article in Analytical Chemistry (Anal. Chem. 2018, 90, 3892-3897) about a "mass-remainder analysis" (abbreviated in MARA) for the data processing of mass spectra from copolymers. Our group has published quasi-simultaneously a letter-to-the editor in Analytical Chemistry (Anal. Chem. 2018, 90, 2404-2408) introducing the notion of "Remainders of Kendrick mass" for the mass defect analysis of low-accuracy mass spectral data. Despite using two different names, the two notion...
