Metastasis of renal cell carcinoma to maxillary gingiva: a case report

A 63-year-old white male presented with maxillary gingival swelling for a 6-month duration. Medical history revealed diabetes and hypertension. Extraoral examination was noncontributory. Intraoral exam showed a red bleeding lobulated nodule measuring 5.0  × 3.0 cm in the left maxillary gingiva. The presumptive diagnosis was nonneoplastic reactive lesion. An incisional biopsy was performed and histopathologic diagnosis was unspecific malignant neoplasm. The initial immunohistochemical panel was inconclusive.

In this study, we identified reliable miRNA clusters that can be used to subclassify HNSCC tumors as well as other squamous tumors of other anatomic locations. An institutional discovery cohort was generated using miRNA expression data from microarrays, and this was validated using publicly available next-generation microRNA sequencing data from TCGA. Further analysis of these subtypes revealed distinct biological and clinical features of HNSCC tumors based on the miRNA expression profiles, which provides new insights into the pathogenesis and treatment of HNSCC.

The 2020 Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) Clinical Practice Guideline on the Evaluation and Management of Candidates for Kidney Transplantation is intended to assist health care professionals worldwide who evaluate and manage potential candidates for deceased or living donor kidney transplantation. This guideline addresses general candidacy issues such as access to transplantation, patient demographic and health status factors, immunological and psychosocial assessment. The roles of various risk factors and comorbid conditions governing an individual’s suitability for transplantation such as adherenc...

The objective of our study was to determine the impact of multiple listing on LT rates. Methods. We examined the United Network of Organ Sharing database from 2002 to 2016 after excluding those listed for multiple organs, hepatocellular carcinoma, or living donor LT. The waitlist mortality and LT rates for the ML groups and the single listed (SL) group were compared after stratifying patients by the Model for End-Stage Liver Disease (MELD) with a cutoff at 15 (1 center (ML group). Of the ML groups, 2028 (2.4%) were listed at multiple donor service areas but within the same region (ML-SR) and 1556 (1.9%) listed in differ...
