Male breast cancer and mantle cell lymphoma in a single patient: A case report and literature review

Absract Rationale: Although still relatively rare, multiple primary malignant neoplasms (MPMNs) have been increasingly reported in recent years. Patient concerns and diagnoses: A 65-year-old man was referred to our hospital for a painless, incidental left axillary lump. Ultrasound showed enlarged left axillary lymph nodes. An excisional biopsy was conducted on 3 lymph nodes. The pathological diagnosis was determined to be metastatic adenocarcinoma and mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) in the lymph nodes. Further physical examination of the patient yielded a 1.5-cm hard, left subareolar mass. Interventions and outcomes: The patient underwent modified radical mastectomy. The diagnosis was grade II invasive ductal carcinoma (stage IIA). The axillary lymph node showed MCL (stage I, group A), but not metastatic ductal carcinoma. The patient received chemotherapy, including 6 courses of CHOP (A chemotherapy protocol consists of cyclophosphamide 1.2 g day 1, doxorubicin 80 mg day 1, vindesine 4 mg day1, and prednisone 90 mg from day 1 to 5) for lymphoma and breast cancer. The patient was also administered endocrine therapy. After a 54-month follow-up, the patient was well with no evidence of disease. Lessons: MPMNs are easily misdiagnosed as a primary and metastatic tumor, leading to delayed or erroneous treatment. Male breast cancer in a patient with MCL is rare. Early diagnosis and proper therapy are necessary for an optimal prognosis. Further studies are required to ...

Authors: Gao D, Shao J, Jin W, Xia X, Qu Y Abstract BACKGROUND: To investigate the correlations of serum cystatin C and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) with vascular endothelial cell injury in patients with active systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). METHODS: A total of 80 patients with SLE treated in our hospital from January 2016 to September 2017 were selected and randomly divided into stable-stage group (n=40) and active-stage group (n=40) using a random number table. The expressions of cystatin C and hs-CRPin stable and active stages were compared, and the inner diameters of brachial artery and...

Conclusions: Lymphomatous lumbosacral radiculoplexopathy should be considered in patients with progressive lumbosacral radicular symptoms. Magnetic resonance imaging and fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography, but not cerebrospinal fluid, are helpful in achieving early diagnosis. Treatment responses seem favorable.

We reported a 28-year-old healthy woman presented with subacute onset ascending muscle weakness 2 weeks after an annual influenza vaccination. Cerebral Spinal Fluid study showed normal cell counts with elevated protein and nerve conduction study showed reduced diffuse compound muscle action potential amplitudes suggesting a diagnosis of Guillain–Barré syndrome. Despite treatment using intravenous immunoglobulin, her condition continued to get worse with new bulbar and respiratory muscle weakness. Eventually, the diagnosis of anti–single recognition particle–mediated necrotizing myopathy was made ba...

Abstract Several microRNAs (miRNAs) have been reported as oncogenes or tumor suppressors in many cancers, including gastric cancer (GC). However, the role and molecular mechanism of miR-3129 in GC is largely unknown. We aimed to explore the function and the underlying molecular mechanism of miR-3129 in GC. Cancer tissues and corresponding adjacent tissues were collected from 50 patients with GC, and the expression of miR-3129 was detected by RT-qPCR. The expression of miR-3129 and pRb in human GC cell line SCG7091 was altered by transient transfection. Thereafter, MTT and flow cytometry assays were used to analyze...

AbstractThe diagnosis of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is established based on histopathological examination results of tumor tissue in nasopharynx and narrow band imaging (NBI) which is an imaging technique that utilizes specific displacement and light absorption characteristics of a specific wavelength. It has not known yet the validity of nasopharyngeal biopsy examination results based on NBI guidance and blind biopsy as a golden standard in establishing nasopharyngeal carcinoma diagnosis. Analyzing the validity of the nasopharyngeal biopsy examination results through NBI guidance and blind biopsy as a golden standard ...
