Krukenberg tumor as an incidental finding in a full-term pregnancy: a case report

ConclusionThis case report describes an uncommon example of a young pregnant woman without identifiable risk factors for gastric cancer who manifested a Krukenberg tumor. This incidental finding suggests that pregnancy obscured the cancer ’s clinical appearance. The rapid deterioration in the patient’s condition corresponds to what is described in the literature. The limited information regarding this neoplasm in Mexico and the torpid evolution of the case highlight the importance of conducting additional studies to generate ther apeutic interventions aimed at increasing overall survival.

Background: In a previous exploratory study, we reported lower concentrations of the ovarian reserve biomarker anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) in adulthood with prenatal farm exposure. We now examine this association as well as childhood farm exposure using enrollment data from the Sister Study, a large US cohort of women. Methods: We collected prenatal and childhood farm exposure data by questionnaire and telephone interview. However, serum AMH data were available only for a nested subset: premenopausal women ages 35–54 subsequently diagnosed with breast cancer (n = 418 cases) and their matched controls...

Conclusion: The incidence of penile and anal high-grade intraepithelial neoplasia and SCC in men with diabetes was increased compared with men without diabetes. For penile and anal SCCs, this was primarily due to an increased risk in men with T2D.

New UCLA-led research indicates that simple text messages emphasizing the easy availability of COVID-19 vaccines successfully boosted the number of people who got the shot.The researchers, from theDavid Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, theUCLA Anderson School of Management and Carnegie Mellon University, say their findings held true across all demographics, including groups that have been hesitant to receive the vaccine.“We found that text messages that stressed the accessibility of the vaccine and that included ‘ownership’ language — such as ‘The vaccine has just been made available for you...

Paenarthrobacter sp. GOM3, which is a strain that represents a new species-specific context within the genus Paenarthrobacter, is clearly a branched member independent of any group described thus far. This strain was recovered from marine sediments in the Gulf of Mexico, and despite being isolated from a consortium capable of growing with phenanthrene as a sole carbon source, this strain could not grow successfully in the presence of this substrate alone. We hypothesized that the GOM3 strain could participate in the assimilation of intermediate metabolites for the degradation of aromatic compounds. To date, there are no ex...

Overall cancer rates are higher among the wealthy, finds Cancer Research UK – but smoking and its cancers are now concentrated among the poorSmoking causes almost twice as many cancer cases among the poor than the well-off, according to new findings that underline the close link between cigarettes and deprivation.About 11,247 cases of cancer caused by smoking are diagnosed among the poorest 20% of people in England each year, but far fewer – 6,200 – among those in the top 20% income bracket.Continue reading...
