An 80 year old hermaphroditic with Hugh Brenner Tumour: a Rare Case Report and Review

ConclusionThe morphological expression of a true hermaphroditism is an “ovotestis” which can be classified into three different categories and require a tissue biopsy for confirmation. The association of a Brenner tumour in a hermaphroditic patient makes this report a significant contribution to human sexual differentiation literature.

ConclusionLET is a rare cutaneous lupus-specific lesion that may be associated with SLE. AITD, hypothyroidism in particular, could be an initial presentation of SLE. Increased awareness and early diagnosis of such clinical presentations may improve patient outcomes.

A 92-year-old woman with a foreign body perforation of the esophagus underwent esophageal repair and esophageal stent placement. A computed tomography (CT) scan of the chest performed for worsening leukocytosis demonstrated an enlarging air-containing mediastinal collection despite a surgically placed mediastinal drain; interventional radiology was consulted. The 3-day-old anteriorly placed drain had a long infracardiac course, and drain exchange was believed to be too high risk for loss of access.

ConclusionFurther investigation is required to determine whether associated Brenner tumors found during frozen section are more highly associated with malignancy and could therefore change intraoperative and overall decision making.

We report a case of ovarian torsion with mixed epithelial tumor misdiagnosed as a malignancy in postmenopausal woman. Patient concerns: A 65-year-old woman presented lower left abdominal pain, and there was slight abdominal distension, but no tenderness or rebound tenderness on abdominal palpation. Diagnoses: Radiologic assessments showed a huge multiseptated cystic mass with solid portion in the left ovary, and malignancy was suspected. The test for serum tumor markers revealed normal levels of cancer antigen 125 (CA-125). Interventions: The patient underwent a laparotomy and there was torsion of the left ovary. We con...

Publication date: Available online 3 July 2017 Source:Gynecologic Oncology Reports Author(s): Susan M. Lang, Anne M. Mills, Leigh A. Cantrell Ovarian neoplasms are a heterogeneous group of tumors with varying incidence in the general population. The most common are the surface epithelial tumors which include transitional cell tumors. Transitional cell tumors include both transitional cell carcinoma and Brenner tumor. The vast majority of Brenner tumors are benign, often incidental findings; however, malignant Brenner tumors (MBT) do occasionally occur. MBT present similarly to other ovarian neoplasms with abdominal pain a...
