PC usually has an indolent course, tough to differentiate from the benign causes of PHPT, and the only certain diagnosis is histologic. The gold standard surgical treatment is the en bloc resection associated with the homolateral thyroid loboistmectomy. The aim of this study was to underline the main differences between PC and benign PHPT, along with gathering epidemiological knowledge...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewSinonasal squamous cell carcinoma (SNSCC) is a rare disease with considerable histologic diversity. Currently, there is a poor understanding of the etiology and pathogenesis of SNSCC. Here, we review recent literature to summarize what is known regarding (1) the etiology of SNSCC, (2) the role of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) in SNSCC, and (2) the molecular underpinnings of SNSCC.Recent Findings1. High risk HPV appears to play a role in the pathogenesis of a subset of SNSCCs. SNSCCs with high risk HPV have improved survival compared with those without HPV and occur in patients who are younger, simila...

CONCLUSIONS: MBC has increasing incidence. PR-negative status was associated with better overall survival and disease-free interval. Indications to radiotherapy and hormonal therapy need standardization and will benefit from prospective randomized control trials. PMID: 32147980 [PubMed - in process]

We report the successful surgical repair of bronchobiliary fistula. A 78-year-old man underwent surgery and several rounds of transcatheter arterial chemoembolization and radiofrequency ablation as treatment for hepatocellular carcinoma. He presented with greenish sputum and chronic cough for several months, and his symptoms did not resolve after endoscopic treatment. We performed lobectomy of the right lower lobe and omentopexy for bronchobiliary fistula under laparotomy and thoracotomy. The bronchobiliary fistula was successfully closed, and the bilious sputum disappeared after surgery. PMID: 32090057 [PubMed]

This study aimed to evaluate fertility in female survivors of childhood DTC by assessing various reproductive characteristics combined with anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) levels (a marker of ovarian reserve). Methods. Female survivors of childhood DTC, diagnosed at ≤18 years of age between 1970 and 2013 were included. Survivors were excluded when follow-up time was less than 5 years or if they developed other malignancies before or after diagnosis of DTC. Survivors filled out a questionnaire regarding reproductive characteristics (e.g. age at menarche and menopause, pregnancies, pregnancy outcomes, need for assisted ...

Conclusion: This is the largest series of patients with ACC treated with high dose adjuvant proton therapy. Proton therapy is a safe and efficient treatment and should be considered as an adjuvant irradiation modality to privilege, for patients with lacrimal ACC after conservative or radical eyeball surgery. Dose delivered to temporal lobe should be limited to avoid brain radionecrosis.
