Successful transoral videolaryngoscopic surgery for leiomyoma in the base of the tongue
We report a rare case of tongue base leiomyoma successfully resected with transoral endoscopic surgery.A 14-year-old male was found to have a tongue base tumor. The tumor located in the right tongue base. It had a smooth surface and no deep invasion. The tumor was resected with transoral videolaryngoscopic surgery. There were no serious adverse events requiring further intervention.

We report the RNAseq data from uterine tissues obtained from mice that over-express KRAS-G12D or KRAS-G12V oncogenes in a Ahmr2-Cre Pten null genetic background.
AbstractLeiomyomatosis is a uterine condition that can rarely present with extrauterine involvement. Intravenous and intracardiac extensions are extremely rare presentations and, in these cases, the intra ‐cardiac mass may be confused with a cardiac myxoma and can be associated with pulmonary embolism. Here we report two cases of successful surgically removed intracardiac leiomyomas under cardiopulmonary bypass.
We present the case of a 40-year-old woman with a primary intraventricular leiomyoma. She consulted us for headache, dizziness, and black spots in her vision. Magnetic resonance images (MRI) disclosed a mass rooted in the posterior septum pellucidum. The tumor was totally excised by the senior author with no residual seen on intraoperative MRI. Pathological examination showed it to be a benign spindle-cell neoplasm. On the 6th month control MRI, there was no recurrence. We also reviewed articles relevant to primary intracranial leiomyomas.
Single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) is an exciting new modality in the field of minimal access surgery that provides the advantage of further reducing the number of scars of standard laparoscopy. While there are case reports of single incision laparoscopic surgery for adnexal pathology in this population, there are none in regards to treatment of uterine pathology such as leiomyoma. This case illustrates the feasibility of single incision laparoscopic surgery for uterine pathology in the pediatric and adolescent population.
Diffuse leiomyomatous disease is a rare manifestation of Alport Syndrome. When identified, it has been associated with symptoms of reflux and dysphagia secondary to esophageal disease. There is scant published literature on genitourinary complaints in female patients with Alport Syndrome found to have leiomyomata in the genital tract outside of the uterine cavity.

CONCLUSION: The preliminary results demonstrated that volumetric MRI-guided HIFU therapy for the treatment of symptomatic leiomyomas in ASEAN patients appears to be clinically acceptable with regard to treatment effectiveness and safety. PMID: 32209511 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
AbstractIntroductionOvarian endometriosis is the most common type of endometriosis (EM), affecting more than 40% of women with EM. Currently, surgical intervention is still controversial in infertile patients with ovarian endometriosis, especially in those with stage III–IV EM. Very few studies have been done to analyze long-term pregnancy results in patients with endometrioma more than 5 years after surgery. Therefore, the aim of this study was to explore the pregnancy outcomes and the related factors in patients with endometrioma and stage III–IV endom etriosis during a long-term follow-up pos...
