Paraneoplastic Syndromes in Ophthalmology (French version of the article).

[Paraneoplastic Syndromes in Ophthalmology (French version of the article)]. J Fr Ophtalmol. 2018 Jun 09;: Authors: Bussat A, Langner-Lemercier S, Salmon A, Mouriaux F Abstract Paraneoplastic syndromes involving the visual system are a heterogeneous group of disorders occurring in the setting of systemic malignancy. Although these syndromes are rare, the clinical manifestations can herald an unsuspected, underlying malignancy. The associated antibodies and histopathology of each syndrome are presented to help in the understanding of these autoimmune phenomena. Outlined in this review article are diagnostic features useful in differentiating cancer-associated retinopathy, melanoma-associated retinopathy, paraneoplastic polymorphous vitelliform maculopathy, bilateral diffuse uveal melanocytic proliferation and paraneoplastic neurologic syndromes such as optic neuropathy, opsoclonus-myoclonus, Lambert-Eaton myasthenia and paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration.

It is currently recognized that in addition to the major impact of human papillomavirus (HPV) infection in females, HPV causes considerable disease in men at the genitals, anal canal, and oropharynx. Specifically, genital HPV infections may progress to genital warts and penile carcinoma. Although studies concerning the natural history of HPV infections and associated neoplasias have mainly focused on women, during the last 2 decades considerable attention has been given in further understanding these infections in men. The HIM (HPV infection in men) Study, the only prospective multicenter study of male HPV natural history,...

Sexual intercourse is regarded as the primary route of human papillomavirus (HPV) transmission. Reported rates of the genotype-specific genital concordance of HPV infection among heterosexual partners vary. Most studies have evaluated only male/female genital transmission, but lately, the oral region has gained interest because of a rising trend of HPV-associated oropharyngeal cancer. Risk factors for type-specific concordance have been reported as an increasing number of younger couples, persistent HPV infection, higher frequency of sexual intercourse, rising number of spouse ’s lifetime sexual partners, and sexual ...

OVs can revert cancer-associated immune suppression and initiate clinically meaningful antitumor immune responses. OVs and their resultant immunological events can act at both primary and metastatic sites. Thus, OVs can be exploited for cancer gene therapies and immunotherapies alone or in combination with other interventions, including immune checkpoint blockade.

In this study, three non-linear indices consist of compression, one-dimensional (1D) and two-dimensional (2D) fractal dimensions are used for the determination of the malignancy or benignity of cancer tumours in breast thermograms. On the other hand, by developing the high-precision infrared cameras as well as new methods of image processing, biomedical thermography images have found a prominent position among the others. Furthermore, cancerous tissue can be affected by the laser. In this study, in order to treat the cancerous lesion identified by breast thermograms, the laser parameters are designed. The basis of controll...

Authors: Bussat A, Langner-Lemercier S, Salmon A, Mouriaux F Abstract Paraneoplastic syndromes involving the visual system are a heterogeneous group of disorders occurring in the setting of systemic malignancy. They are unrelated to local tumor invasion or metastasis and unexplained by nutritional, metabolic, infectious or iatrogenic causes. The presence of antibodies may aid in the diagnosis of a paraneoplastic syndrome, although this is not an absolute requirement. Chorioretinal involvement is seen in CAR (cancer-associated retinopathy) syndrome, MAR (melanoma-associated retinopathy) syndrome, paraneoplastic vite...
