Mucoepidermoid Carcinoma of the Palate in Adolescence
Angiomyolipomas (AMLs) are the most common benign renal tumours. Most of these neoplasms are found incidentally on imaging. However, symptomatic presentation does exist.Renal AMLs are typically composed of smooth muscle, blood vessels, and adipose tissue. Because of the abundant fat tissue, they give a characteristic appearance on imaging and are therefore easily diagnosed. However, sometimes they contain too little fat to be detected. This increases the difficulty in differentiating them from renal cell carcinoma (RCC).Management of AML is based on clinical presentation and should be individualized for every patient. Trea...

Authors: Caviglia GP, Ribaldone DG, Abate ML, Ciancio A, Pellicano R, Smedile A, Saracco GM Abstract OBJECTIVES: In the setting of surveillance for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) detection, the use of serum biomarkers in addition to ultrasonography (US) is still a matter of debate. Hence, we performed a meta-analysis to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of protein induced by vitamin K absence or antagonist-II (PIVKA-II) and alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) alone or in combination for HCC detection in patients at risk of tumor development. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed a systematic search in PubMed and Scopus databa...

Conclusions: This study is the first nationwide study presenting an increase in incidence of EP-NEC patients from 196 to 260 cases annually in the Netherlands. We found the best 5 year relative survival to be for EP-NEC patients with local disease located in the bladder, where the worst 5 year relative survival was found in the oesophagus.
Clinical Transplantation, EarlyView.
To evaluate the efficacy and safety of stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) in patients with small hepatocellular carcinoma(sHCC) who were ineligible for surgery or ablation therapies.
ConclusionsThe follow-up rate after definitive surgery declined with time. Late complications were observed within 20 years, but biliary carcinoma was not observed. The follow-up rate should be increased to detect late complications. Moreover, patient education on long-term follow up is essential to prevent life-threatening events after definitive surgery for CC.
