Authors: Longvert C, Saiag P Abstract Incidence of malignant melanoma has been increasing since the 1980s. For loco-regional stages, surgery is still the best treatment. Melanoma has a high distant metastatic potential and prognosis of advanced stages was until recently very poor. Since 2011 however, a real revolution has taken place in the treatment of metastatic melanoma. This is based upon considerably improved knowledge of the molecular mechanisms of melanoma and cancer immunology. Thus, two new classes of systemic therapeutic agents are now available: immunotherapies (immunological checkpoint inhibitors), whic...

ABSTRACT Purpose: To provide data of the incidence and management of common urological malignancies in renal transplant recipients. Materials and Methods: We conducted a retrospective analysis of a prospective database from August 1967 to August 2015. A descriptive analysis of the sample was performed. Results: Among 1256 consecutive RTR a total of 88 patients developed malignancies (7%). There were 18 genitourinary tumors in the 16 patients (20.45 % of all malignant neoplasms), incidence of 1.27%. The most common neoplasm encounter was renal cancer (38.8%), followed by urothelial carcinoma (33.3%). Median follow-up of tra...

ABSTRACT In approximately 50% of cases of bladder carcinoma, an associated predisposing factor can be established. The main factors are exposure to tobacco, arsenic (As) ore and aromatic compounds. Arsenic is a metalloid with a low average concentration in the earth's crust, and one of the most dangerous substances for human health. The present study aims to evaluate the incidence of hospitalization and mortality from bladder neoplasia and its possible association with As concentration in water and soil in two of the most critical regions of Brazil: the states of S ão Paulo and Minas Gerais. We have investigated bla...

Conclusion: Localized chRCCs have a great propensity for homogeneity and complete pseudocapsule. The attenuation values were slightly lower than normal renal cortex and small degree of enhancement. Laparoscopic SE is a safe and effective treatment for localized chRCC. The oncological results were satisfactory.

Conclusion: RIAS of the breast is a rare but recognized complication of radiotherapy for breast carcinoma, with a poor prognosis and high recurrence rate, which requires a high index of suspicion for a prompt diagnosis.Resumo Objetivo: Caracterizar uma popula ção de pacientes com angiossarcoma da mama induzido por radioterapia em um instituto de oncologia, com foco principalmente nas características de imagem, mas também na apresentação clínica, diagnóstico e gerenciamento. Materiais e Métodos: Efetuamos análise retrospectiva, entre 2000 e 201 5, de paci...

Abstract Although the primary purpose of periodic mammograms in screening programs is to identify lesions suspected of being carcinomas, the findings are often related to systemic (benign or malignant) diseases, rather than breast cancer. Although the involvement of breast structures in systemic diseases is unusual, it can be included in the differential diagnosis of masses, skin changes, calcifications, asymmetry, and axillary lymphadenopathy. The main diagnostic entities that can be associated with such involvement are diabetes, chronic kidney disease, heart diseases, connective tissue diseases, HIV infection, lymphoma, ...
