ConclusionJuvenile tGrCT represent a benign entity whereas adult tGCTs have metastatic potential. Tumor size, presence of angiolymphatic invasion or gynecomastia represent risk factors for metastatic disease. The published literature supports the use of testis sparing surgery but there is only limited experience with adjuvant therapies. In the metastatic setting, the reviewed literature suggests that aggressive surgical and systemic treatment might cure patients.

This study aimed to elucidate the risk factors for disease-free survival (DFS) and overall survival (OS) in multicenter patients with a poor liver functional reserve after curative treatment.MethodsBetween April 2000 and April 2014, 212 CP-BC patients who received treatment in five high-volume centers in Japan were included in this study. CP-B and C patients were 206 and 6, respectively. Cox proportional hazard regression analyses for DFS and OS were performed to estimate the risk factors.ResultsThe mean observation time was 1132  days. Mean Child–Pugh score and indocyanine green retention rate at 15 min we...

Introduction: The present study was conducted to compare the efficacy and side effects of Spironolactone and Eplerenone in management of ascites due to liver cirrhosis. Materials and methods: 105 patients of ascites with liver cirrhosis were randomized into three groups of 35 patients each. Group I was given Spironolactone 100 mg, group II was given Eplerenone 100 mg and group III was given Eplerenone 50 mg. All patients were put on salt-restricted diet (less than or equal to 2 g of sodium) and no loop diuretics were used. Patients were followed after 7 days from the baseline and then biweekly for the period of three ...

Conclusions Breast tissue diameter is a simple and reliable quantitative tool for the assessment of gynecomastia. This method provides the ability to determine the incidence of gynecomastia by age in the general population. Radiological gynecomastia should be defined as 22 mm, 28 mm, or 36 mm (90th, 95th, and 97.5th percentiles, respectively). Radiological gynecomastia is not associated with obesity, but is associated with cirrhosis and dialysis.

Background and aim Gonadal function is affected significantly in male patients with cirrhosis. The aim of this study was to assess the level of sex hormones in male patients with hepatitis C virus-related liver cirrhosis and its reflection on clinical presentation. Patients and methods This cross-sectional study was carried out on 40 consecutive male patients with hepatitis C virus-related cirrhosis of Child–Pugh class C in addition to 20 age-matched healthy male participants (control group). All were subjected to an assay of serum hormonal levels: total and free testosterone, estradiol (E2), sex hormone-binding...

Abstract Primary breast lymphoma is a rare type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma and usually affects women, although a few cases have been reported in men. Chemotherapy and radiation therapy, or a combination of both, are frequently administered for treatment of primary breast lymphoma, as local control by surgical resection is poor. No standard therapy has been established, and the optimal radiation dose and irradiation field for male patients are unknown. The present report describes a 75-year-old man with bilateral cirrhosis-induced gynecomastia who was diagnosed with primary breast lymphoma; specifically, diffuse large...

Authors: Dinis-Oliveira RJ, Magalhaes T, Queiros O, Proenca JB, Moreira R, de Lourdes Bastos M, Carvalho F Abstract Ethanol is the most abused psychoactive substance. Accordingly to World Health Organization ethanol ranks among the top five risk factors for disease, disability and death (3.3 million/year) throughout the world. This manuscript highlights and critically analyses clinical and forensic signs related to hepatoxicity of ethanol that may lead to suspected of abuse. Namely, steatosis, jaundice, cirrhosis, hemorrhoids, esophageal varices caput medusae, ascites, petechiae, ecchymoses, splenomegaly, hemochrom...
