Triple negative breast cancer and immunoglobulin A nephropathy: A case report and literature review.
Triple negative breast cancer and immunoglobulin A nephropathy: A case report and literature review. Oncol Lett. 2018 Jan;15(1):979-983 Authors: Jiang D, Zhang X, Liu J, Cui Y, Li Y, Zheng F Abstract The association between malignant tumors and the occurrence of glomerular disease has been well documented in previous studies. The most common types of malignant tumor include Hodgkin's lymphoma with minimal change glomerular nephritis, solid tumor with membranous nephropathy and renal cell carcinoma with immunoglobulin (Ig)A nephropathy. The present case study describes a case of a 31-year-old Chinese female patient who was hospitalized with chronic glomerulonephritis. The patient self-administered unknown traditional Chinese medicine; however, protein excretion/24-h remained increased compared with normal levels. After 34 months, a tumor was identified in the patient. Subsequently, the patient was administered breast-conserving surgery and sentinel lymph node biopsy, which validated the diagnosis of triple negative breast cancer at stage IA (T1cN0M0). The patient received chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Following the review of the relevant studies within the last 30 years, it was demonstrated that the present report was the second documented case of breast cancer associated with IgA nephropathy. Thus, the present study hypothesized that IgA nephropathy may be a tumor manifestation in breast cancer. PMID: 29399159 [PubMed]
Authors: López F, Hunt JL, Nixon IJ, Rinaldo A, Williams MD, Cardesa A, Ferlito A Abstract OBJECTIVE: This review aimed to critically analyse data pertaining to the clinical presentation and treatment of neuroendocrine carcinomas of the larynx. METHOD: A PubMed search was performed using the term 'neuroendocrine carcinoma'. English-language articles on neuroendocrine carcinoma of the larynx were reviewed in detail.Results and conclusionWhile many historical classifications have been proposed, in contemporary practice these tumours are sub-classified into four subtypes: carcinoid, atypical carcinoid, smal...
Conclusion: If otologic manifestations such as facial palsy and hearing loss are presented in patients at advanced stages of malignancy, TBM of primary malignancy should be suspected. In addition, hematologic malignancies tend to metastasize to the external auditory canal and the middle ear cleft more commonly than solid cancers do.
