Diagnostically challenging human papillomavirus-associated primary squamous cell carcinoma of the rectum with metastasis in both ovaries: a case report
ConclusionColorectal squamous cell carcinoma is a rare disease. In cases of colorectal squamous cell carcinoma, metastatic disease at any other location has to be excluded. Human papillomavirus genotyping is essential in this context. Discussion of the treatment strategies should be interdisciplinary and include chemoradiation therapy and radical surgery.

Authors: Chen T, Gilfix B, Rivera JA, Sadeghi N, Richardson K, Hier MP, Forest VI, Fishman D, Caglar D, Pusztaszeri M, Mitmaker EJ, Payne RJ Abstract Though the current gold standard for diagnosing thyroid nodule malignancy is ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (USFNA) cytology, about 20-25% of cytological evaluations are considered indeterminate for malignancy. This limitation has led to the emergence of next-generation sequencing panels, e.g. ThyroSeq v3 (TSv3), which recognize highly-diagnostic genetic mutations of common thyroid carcinomas in FNA samples and classifies them as test-negative or test-positi...

I'm a current fellow scheduled to graduate in July. After that, I'm joining a private practice located>1000 miles away from where I'm training. Until the pandemic hit, the plan was to fly out there next month to start looking for housing. In addition to the inherent risk of travel right now, my hospital just implemented a policy that if you leave the state you have to self-quarantine for 2 weeks (and they count that as vacation time). Not sure what I'm going to do to find housing in time... Finding housing during pandemic

CONCLUSIONS: In EUA, physical and mood disorders are associated with new and old inflammatory serological, clinical and imaging biomarkers. HLA-DRB1*11-positivity may be protective against these disease-related features. PMID: 32242813 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: Gadolinium-enhanced MRI could display capsulitis, rotator cuff tendonitis and focal bone oedema in humerus heads that was sensitive and specific to patients with PMR, improving diagnostic accuracy in PMR. Rotator cuff tendonitis and synovial hypertrophy on MRI could help predict recurrence in PMR. PMID: 32242812 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
