A Case of Recurrent Uterine Leiomyosarcoma Treated with Complete Laparoscopic Resection

Uterine leiomyosarcoma (uLMS) is aggressive mesenchymal neoplasm and is associated with a high risk of recurrence and poor prognosis. The 5year overall survival rate is about 60% even in FIGO stage I disease. There is no firm evidence of chemotherapy, so surgical resection should be considered to control the disease in case of localized recurrence. We will report a case underwent total laparoscopic complete resection for recurrent mass involved sigmoid colon and right ureter.

This article discusses various educational interventions implemented in a new patient/family education program at the University of South Alabama Children's &Women's Hospital in Mobile, Alabama, for patients and family members of those newly diagnosed with pediatric cancer and other chronic illnesses. Tablet computers were made available to access reputable, easy to understand health resources during the educational processes upon diagnosis and continued treatment at the hospital. MedlinePlus, Patient Education Institute's X-Plain videos and other National Library of Medicine resources were available at the bedside and...

The current chemotherapy for this illness causes serious side effects and its use in the chronic phase of the disease is still controversial. In this sense, the investigatio...

CONCLUSIONS: This paper presents five cases and a radiographic inventory to illustrate disturbances of dental development associated with chemotherapy and radiotherapy therapy in children. Medical and dental professionals involved in the treatment of cancer survivors are relatively unaware of the dental consequences of radiation therapy and the age dependency of specific regional effects. These effects can be severe, with great impact on quality of life. Further research in this area could help improve planning of radiation therapy for children, potentially preventing or limiting dental or maxillofacial sequelae. PMID:...

We report a rare case of primary yolk sac tumour of the prostate with extensive local and liver metastasis, the latter of which exhibited sheets of small blue cells expressing CD99 and focal sall4 on biopsy. Positivity for CD99 and gata3 in the initial biopsy raised the differential diagnosis of Ewing sarcoma and poorly differentiated carcinoma. The primary tumour demonstrated an admixture of solid and glandular growth patterns and occasional Schiller-Duval bodies. A panel of immunohistochemical stains showing positivity for AE1/3, sall4, cdx2, and focal alpha-fetoprotein, and negativity for oct-4, facilitated the diagnosi...

Authors: Morris AL, Colbourne T, Kirkpatrick I, Banerji V Abstract Nontraumatic chylous pleural effusions (chylothorax) and pericardial effusions (chylopericardium) are rare. They can, however, accompany intrathoracic malignancies and, most commonly, lymphomas. An association of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (cll) with chylopericardium has rarely been reported. A 68-year-old woman with cll, previously treated with single-agent fludarabine in the community, developed pleuritic chest pain and a new pericardial effusion. Computed tomography (ct) imaging of her chest revealed a large pericardial effusion with progressiv...

Conclusions: Intra- and inter-provincial differences in the use of chemotherapy and acute care were observed. Understanding variations in care can help to identify gaps and opportunities for improvement and shared learnings. PMID: 31708656 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusions: Selective use of an egfri based on ptl was more cost-effective than unselected use of those agents; however, based on traditional wtp thresholds, it was still not cost-effective. While awaiting the elucidation of more precise predictive biomarkers that might improve cost-effectiveness, the price of egfris could be reduced to meet the wtp threshold.

Conclusions: In advanced mcrc, ftd/tpi is a well-tolerated therapy. The large number of patients enrolled in the access programs within a short period of time is reflective of major clinical need in this area, with many patients being eligible and interested in pursuing treatment in the refractory setting.

Case descriptionA nearly 6‐year‐old female spayed Labrador Retriever was presented for acute abdominal pain and lethargy. The dog had no previous health concerns apart from occasional episodes of urinary incontinence in the 2 months prior to presentation. A retroperitoneal mass involving the right ureter was found during the investigations. Serum urea was mildly elevated, but the serum creatinine was within the normal range. No distant metastases were detected. A right ureteronephrectomy was performed. The ureteral mass was confirmed as a leiomyosarcoma and completely excised. The kidney was histologically normal. Unfo...
