Annular erythema as a cutaneous sign of recurrent ductal breast carcinoma, misdiagnosed as erythema chronicum migrans

Annular erythema as a clinical manifestation of locoregional recurrence of breast cancer is extremely rare. Only three papers with the description of five cases have been published in the current literature to our knowledge. Herein, we describe two additional cases of annular erythema as a cutaneous sign of recurrent ductal breast carcinoma; both were misdiagnosed as erythema chronicum migrans.

ConclusionThe presence of breast cancer does not significantly increase the likelihood for upgrade at a separate site of ipsilateral concurrent ADH above contemporary reported upgrade rates of ADH alone (10 –30%). When considering breast conservation for breast cancer, omitting excision of the site of ADH can be considered when low-risk features are present.

ConclusionsThis study contains the largest population dataset of ILC evaluated to date. While total breast cancer incidence rates in Ontario are largely unchanged, ILC incidence rates are steadily increasing and there is a trend towards diagnosis of ILC at a later stage. These trends highlight the ongoing diagnostic and treatment challenge ILC presents for patients and clinicians.

Immune response and immunotherapy play important roles in triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC). However, it is difficult to judge whether cancer is “immune-inactivated” or “immune-activated” by the carcinoma itself. The immune reaction of the microenvironment or the host to the tumor might be more informative. We assumed that clinically enlarged but pathologically negative regional lymph nodes served as an indicator for early immune response to tumors. First, we identified women with pN0 breast cancer disease from the current Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results database, and we compared the ...

Abstract Chemical investigation of the lichen Usnea ceratina Arch led to the isolation of five depsidones, including one new compound ceratinalone (1) along with four known compounds bailesidone (2), stictic acid (3), 8'-O-methylstictic acid (4) and 8'-O-ethylstictic acid (5). The structures were determined by analysis of their MS and NMR data as well as by comparison with literature values. Compounds 1 and 4 were evaluated the cytotoxic activity against HeLa (human epithelial carcinoma), NCI-H460 (human lung cancer), HepG2 (liver hepatocellular carcinoma), and MCF-7 (human breast cancer) cell lines, showing the m...

Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer and the leading cause of death in women[1, 2]. Classifications for breast cancer vary significantly, ranging from histologic subtypes and growth patterns to molecular subtypes[3-6]. The World Health Organization (WHO) has classified breast cancer into at least 21 distinctive histologies based on cell morphology, growth, and architecture patterns[7]. Invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC) accounts for 75% of all breast cancers and constitutes a diagnosis by exclusion, while the remaining 25% comprise subtypes that display distinctive morphologic and prognostic profiles.

The objective of this study is to report the cutaneous side effects of EGFR inhibitors and to share treatment methods for such side effects.Materials and method: In this prospective study, 59 patients using EGFR due to breast and colorectal carcinoma at the oncology unit of Haseki Training and Research hospital were assessed. The patients for whom EGFR was initiated were examined at the beginning of the treatment at weeks 1 and 2, their demographic characteristics were recorded, and the patients who developed a skin rash were followed up from the onset of the lesion. The papulopustular side effects that developed in the pa...

The objective of this study was to compare the effect of ultrasound-guided percutaneous MWA and NSM for breast cancer.Materials and MethodsA retrospective cohort study was conducted in a single institution from 2014 to 2020. Women with invasive ductal carcinoma of the breast ≤ 5cm treated by MWA or NSM were enrolled. The primary end point was tumor progression and secondary end points included survival, cosmetic results, and complications.Results21 patients in the MWA group and 43 in the NSM group were evaluated. The mean tumor size was 2.3 cm (range, 0.3–5.0 cm). Median follow-up was 26.7 months (range, 14.6...

Asiri Based on reported results for the potential medicinal impact of phenothiazine core, as well as the chalcone skeleton that is widely present in many natural products, together with their reported bioactivities, the present work was aimed at combining both moieties in one molecular skeleton and to synthesize and characterize a novel series of chalone-based phenothiazine derivatives. For this purpose, 2-acetylphenothiazine was N-alkylated, followed by the Claisen-Schmidt reaction to produce the chalcones with good yield. Antioxidant activity, as evaluated by 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) free radical scave...

ConclusionsSarcomas are the most common radiotherapy-induced tumors after breast cancer treatment. These are rare, aggressive tumors and represent between 0.5% and 5.5% of all sarcomas. Basal cell carcinoma has also been associated with breast cancer treatment. The management is individualized and multimodal, including surgical resection and chemotherapy. Different studies have shown that radiation therapy is a risk factor for the development of soft tissue tumors.
