Longitudinal changes in Magnetic Resonance Imaging of malignant and borderline tumors associated with ovarian endometriotic cyst comparing with endometriotic cysts without arising malignancy

Conclusions The MR findings suggesting malignant transformation were emergence of a solid portion and increase in cyst size. Disappearance of shading also facilitates the follow-up of endometriotic cysts.

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common skin cancer type in humans. Various factors play a role in BCC occurrence, but sunlight exposure is the most common etiologic factor. This case series presents three patients who had scarring after severe traumas (a deep abrasion, burn, and puncture injury); a long time after the respective traumatic events, a BCC occurred in the scar tissue. The lesions were excised, and BCCs were diagnosed based on histopathology. Although several etiologic factors may play a role in trauma-related BCC, the main mechanism remains unclear. A correct diagnosis with biopsy and an assessment of t...

This prospective study investigated the association between BMI and UGI cancer risk in the Linxian Dysplasia Nutrition Intervention Trial (NIT) cohort.MethodsA total of 3298 participants were included in the final analysis.

ConclusionsThese results indicated that an NGS BRCA1/2 assay could detect most LGRs including BRCA1 promoter-region deletion as well as SNVs and small InDels. Therefore, it was applicable to clinical BRCA1/2 mutation tests.

In our institute, a “flexible” gastric tube designed to supply a sufficient amount of blood to the tip of the gastric tube (the same as a subtotal gastric tube) and simultaneously provide sufficient length for tension-free anastomosis in the cervical surgical field (the same as a narr...

Authors: Li G, Shen Y, Wang F, Hong S, Cai M Abstract BACKGROUND We investigated the relationship between the 18F-FDG PET/CT metabolic parameter SUVmax in primary hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and expression of von Hippel-Lindau (VHL), as well as its effect on HCC survival prognosis. MATERIAL AND METHODS We retrospectively analyzed data for 62 HCC patients who received 18F-FDG PET/CT before surgery at the First Affiliated Hospital of Bengbu Medical College from June 2013 to June 2018 (42 males, 20 females; median age 62 years). No treatment was performed prior to the examination. The relationship between preoperat...

Abstract Epithelial ovarian cancer comprises a heterogeneous group of tumors. The four most common subtypes are serous, endometrioid, clear cell, and mucinous carcinoma. Less common are transitional cell tumors, including transitional cell carcinoma and malignant Brenner tumor. While in the past these subtypes were grouped together and designated as epithelial ovarian tumors, these tumor types are now known to be separate entities with distinct clinical and biologic behaviors. From a therapeutic standpoint, current regimens employ standard chemotherapy based on stage and grade rather than histotype. However, this ...

CONCLUSION: Clear cell and endometrioid carcinoma are the most common types of EACO. Atypical endometriosis was more commonly seen in endometrioid and clear cell carcinomas which are included in type I ovarian cancer. Thus, it can be concluded that atypical endometriosis is a precursor for type I ovarian cancer. PMID: 26621017 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusions: There is a significant association between endometriosis, including atypical forms, and endometrioid and clear cell carcinomas, but not with other EOC histotypes. The presence of endometriosis in EOC suggests a better prognosis and an intermediate stage within the progression endometriosis-carcinoma.Gynecol Obstet Invest
