Ossifying fibroma in the mandibular angle mimicking metastatic clear cell renal cell carcinoma: A case report
Rationale: Ossifying fibroma is benign fibro-osseous neoplasm. The authors report a case of ossifying fibroma in the mandibular angle suspected as metastasis of clear cell renal cell carcinoma. Patient concerns: A 74-year-old man presented to the primary hospital complaining of frequent urination. A tumor in the left kidney was detected via an abdominal computed tomography scan. The patient then visited the Department of Urology at our hospital. Diagnoses: According to whole-body imaging examinations, the patient was suspected of having renal cancer with mandibular metastasis. Also, a cystic lesion of the maxilla was revealed. Interventions: Left nephrectomy was performed by urologists, and the patient was diagnosed with clear cell renal cell carcinoma of the left kidney. Approximately 1 month later, resection with a safety margin of the mandibular lesion and removal of the maxillary lesion were performed by oral and maxillofacial surgeons. Outcomes: The patient was diagnosed with ossifying fibroma of the mandible and an odontogenic keratocyst of the maxilla via a histopathological examination. Eighteen months have passed since the operation without clinical and imaging findings associated with recurrence. Lessons: Ossifying fibroma in the mandibular angle of elderly patients is extremely rare. Surgeons should consider the possibility of metastasis when osteolytic lesions of the jaw are found in patients with cancer.
ConclusionsWomen whose treatment did not conform to NCCN guidelines were not associated with worse outcomes.
This study reviewed the applicability of laparoscopy in this challenging setting.MethodsRetrospective analysis of patients who underwent trans-abdominal re-operative rectal surgery from 2010-2019 was performed.ResultsSeventy-eight patients [35 females (45%); BMI 25kg/m2) were included. Reasons for reoperation were recurrent cancer in 18 (43%) patients and anastomotic failure in 57 (73%). Twenty-two (28%) had laparoscopic surgery and 4 had attempted laparoscopy converted to laparotomy. A higher success rate was noted for laparoscopy with prior laparoscopic surgery. Benefits of laparoscopy included significant reduction in l...
CONCLUSION: Primary Signet ring cell carcinoma of the prostate is a rare and aggressive histological variant of adenocarcinomas of the prostate. Treatment is the same as classical adenocarcinoma with an emphasis on aggressive multimodal treatment. PMID: 31797810 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: Flexible videoureterorrenoscopy and Holmium laser for the management of intrarenal stenosis are highly effective and safe with the advantages of less perioperative complications, less invasiveness and being an outpatient procedure compared to percutaneous surgery.

Authors: Yalcin S, Kaya E, Ebiloglu T, Akay S, Zor M, Sarıkaya S, Yilmaz S, Bedir S Abstract OBJECTIVES: In this research, we designed a cognitive fusion(CF) prostate biopsy(PB) (CFPB) technique by examining the multiparametric MRI of prostate (MP_MRI-P) images in a smart-phone near the trans-rectal ultrasound (TRUS) device, and examined the results. METHODS: Between January 2011 and January 2017, a total of 344 men who had PB enrolled in this study. Group 1 had a minimum of a 12-core standard TRUS PB (TRUSPB). Group 2 had CFPB while examining the MP_ MRI-P images in a smartphone near the TRUS device. A minimu...
Authors: Murray NP, Aedo S, Fuentealba C, Salazar A, Reyes E, Lopez MA, Minzer S Abstract INTRODUCTION: Minimal residual disease (MRD) is that which persists after curative treatment for prostate cancer. It has the potential to grow and cause metastasis. The detection of circulating prostate cells (CPCs) and bone marrow micro-metastasis could represent different sub-types of MRD. OBJECTIVE: To determine biochemical failure free survival and time to failure, the presence of circulating prostate cells and bone marrow micro-metastasis in men treated for low risk prostate cancer. HYPOTHESIS: The presence of MRD...
CONCLUSION: Video-endoscopic inguinal lymphadenectomy contributes to less morbidity with a lower- rate of cutaneous complications and less severity. Furthermore, VEIL gives lower hospital stay without changing in initial oncologic outcomes. Although we need longer series to stablish the oncologic long-term results.

CONCLUSION: Remote ischemic preconditioning did not modify irisin or troponin I expression, independent of the time of collection. PMID: 31799981 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
We report the case of a male patient with cutaneous metastasis of prostate adenocarcinoma located in the cervical and upper thoracic area. The patient also had a history of pulmonary tuberculosis. A CT scan revealed the presence of bone metastasis, pleural effusion, and infiltration of the soft tissues of the neck. The histopathological study confirmed the presence of cutaneous metastasis of primary prostate neoplasia. We present this case due to its unusualness and its importance in the differential diagnosis of this pathology. PMID: 31800950 [PubMed - in process]
