The objective of the current study was to report a clinical case considered rare in the literature, as well as discuss its implications and peculiarities. This case report describes a 57-year-old patient with lobular carcinoma metastatic to the uterine cervix, >3 years after the termination of the left breast cancer treatment. A literature analysis confirmed that most cases presented with vaginal bleeding or abdominal discomfort, but many were asymptomatic. Common characteristics between the cases were the patient's age, the time period between primary tumor diagnosis and the emergence of metastatic lesions, treatm...

Cowden syndrome (CS) is a multiple hamartoma syndrome associated with the development of various tumors, including endometrial cancer. However, the histology of CS-associated endometrial cancer remains to be fully described. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a patient with CS having endometrial endometrioid carcinoma with ovarian metastasis demonstrating morula-like features. A 31-yr-old, nulliparous, Japanese woman presented with abnormal genital bleeding. Endometrial biopsy revealed endometrioid carcinoma with an extensive morular formation, partially resembling atypical polypoid adenomyoma (APAM). Moreover, ...

ConclusionsAmong patients ≥ 70 years old, many symptoms were significantly more frequent/severe with AIs than with SERMs, compared with those aged 56–69, which suggests a difference in the profile of adverse events according to the type of endocrine therapy and the patient’s age. It is important to consider the bene fits and risks of each treatment to optimize endocrine therapy for older patients.

Abstract The aim of the present study was to investigate the efficacy of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-guided radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for breast cancer patients who cannot undergo traditional surgery. A total of 10 patients were treated by MRI-guided RFA, of whom 6 had stage IV disease (lung metastasis n=3, bone metastasis n=1, liver metastasis n=1 and mediastinal metastasis n=1) and the remaining 4 patients, who refused surgery, had stage III disease accompanied by severe underlying conditions. The changes in feasibility, tumor volume, bleeding, local recurrence, metastasis and complications were evaluat...
