Risk factors and treatment outcomes of 239 patients with testicular granulosa cell tumors: a systematic review of published case series data
ConclusionJuvenile tGrCT represent a benign entity whereas adult tGCTs have metastatic potential. Tumor size, presence of angiolymphatic invasion or gynecomastia represent risk factors for metastatic disease. The published literature supports the use of testis sparing surgery but there is only limited experience with adjuvant therapies. In the metastatic setting, the reviewed literature suggests that aggressive surgical and systemic treatment might cure patients. (Source: Journal of Cancer Research and Clinical Oncology)

Gaps or links between hormonal therapy and schizophrenia? (Review).
Authors: Trifu SC, Istrate D, Miruna DA Abstract Schizophrenia is considered the most severe and debilitating psychiatric disorder. During the 80's, first reports on abnormalities of the schizophrenic brain which could be objectively observed on MRI, CT scans and other imagistic techniques were published. This showed that schizophrenia is a disorder that goes beyond the functional aspect of the symptomatology. The ties between psychiatry and endocrinology are easily observed, even empirically, by any mental health practitioner, and mirrored by endocrinology specialists. Disorders related to menstruation phase of th...

The Vacuum-Assisted Breast Biopsy System is an Effective Strategy for the Treatment of Gynecomastia
AbstractBackgroundGynecomastia is the most common benign disease in males with an increasing prevalence in recent years. It may cause local pain and psychological disorders. The vacuum-assisted breast biopsy system has been reported to be a novel surgical approach for the treatment of gynecomastia. However, there are little detailed reports comparing the curative effect between traditional surgery and vacuum-assisted breast biopsy for gynecomastia. Besides, there was little study which compared the application of two different systems for the treatment of gynecomastia. Our study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of va...

Adverse effects of androgen deprivation therapy in patients with prostate cancer: Focus on muscle and bone health.
Authors: Bargiota A, Oeconomou A, Zachos I, Samarinas M, L Pisters L, Tzortzis V Abstract Androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) is the most effective systemic treatment for prostate cancer and can be succeeded either surgically or pharmaceutically. Both approaches lead to hypogonadism with a large variety of adverse events, including obesity, metabolic syndrome, osteoporosis, sarcopenia, diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular disease, gynecomastia and sexual dysfunction. In addition, undesirable effects on muscle and bone health may have a significant impact not only on the quality of life but also on life expectancy. Curr...

Sertoli cell tumor/mixed germ cell-stromal cell tumor as separate neoplasms in a bilaterally cryptorchid dog.
Abstract An 11-year-old miniature poodle dog was presented with bilateral flank alopecia, gynecomastia, severe thrombocytopenia, and preputial edema. Based on characteristic clinical and hematological findings of hyperestrogenism and the presence of a caudal abdominal mass, a Sertoli cell tumor (SCT) was diagnosed. After a platelet concentrate transfusion, the SCT was surgically removed in addition to an atrophied contralateral testicle containing a mixed germ cell-stromal cell tumor. Recovery was uneventful. This combination of different neoplasms in separate testicles has yet to be documented. Key clinical messa...

Methylation Profile of X-Chromosome –Related Genes in Male Breast Cancer
Background: Androgen receptor (AR) has been described to play a prominent role in male breast cancer (MBC). It maps on chromosome X, and recent reports indicate that X-chromosome polysomy is frequent in MBC. Since the response to anti-androgen therapy may depend on AR polysomy and on its overexpression similarly to prostate cancer, the aim of the present study was to investigate the DNA methylation level of AR and its coregulators, especially those mapped on the X-chromosome, that may influence the activity of AR in MBC.Methods: The DNA methylation level of AR, MAGEA2, MAGEA11, MAGEC1, MAGEC2, FLNA, HDAC6, and UXT, mapped ...

A Novel Missense Variant in PHF6 Gene Causing B örjeson-Forssman-Lehman Syndrome
In this study, we describe two male siblings with mild intellectual disability, global developmental delay, short stature, microcephaly, and nyctalopia. Whole exome sequencing of the affected siblings and the parents identified a missense var iant (c.413C >  G) in thePHF6 gene, which leads to alteration of a serine residue at position 138 to cysteine. This mutation is located in a highly conserved region. Sanger sequencing confirmed the segregation of this mutation in the family in an X-linked recessive fashion. Multiple mass spectrometry-based proteomic studies have reported phosphorylation at serine 138 ...

Promoting Early Genetic Screening for 47,XXY Based On Early Intervention and Emerging Treatment Options
Background: 47,XXY commonly known as Klinefelter syndrome (KS) is the most common male sex chromosome aneuploidy. The syndrome is characterized by hypotonicity, developmental delays, learning disabilities, and psychosocial problems during infancy/childhood and low testosterone production (hypogonadism) in adolesence/adulthood. Untreated, adolescents and adults may develop gynecomastia, osteoporosis and most commonly, infertility. The current standard of care offers treatment for KS at the onset of puberty for boys following molecular diagnosis. (Source: Journal of Pediatric Nursing)

[A survey of Belgian practice for non-malignant diseases].
Abstract Two prior surveys were carried out in 1995 and 1999 to evaluate the use of radiotherapy in the treatment of non-malignant disease. In 2016, the same questionnaire was used and sent to the 24 centers of the country: 22 responded. A major decrease was observed in the number of patients treated: 360 in 2016 in contrast to 954 in 1999 and 1113 in 1995. The most frequent indications remain the prevention of heterotopic bone formation, keloids or gynecomastia. A new indication was observed: trigeminal nevralgia treated with radiosurgery. Two frequent indications in the past disappeared: the prevention of corona...

The pleura and the endocrine system.
Abstract The functioning of the pleura and the endocrine system are not entirely independent of each other. Some hormones can reach a greater concentration in the pleural exudate than in the blood. However, the clinical significance of this finding remains unknown. In some circumstances, hormonal changes are responsible for pathological manifestations in the pleura. Hypothyroidism is one of the most common diseases that can cause a pleural effusion, likely resulting from alterations in capillary permeability. The presence of ectopic endometrial tissue within the lung parenchyma, pleura, pericardium or diaphragm is...

Barriers to the Effective Management of Gynecomastia in Adolescents
Discussion: High surgical success rate, coupled with significant improvements in psychosocial functioning suggests that mastectomy is a highly effective intervention for adolescents with gynecomastia. However, due to vague and inadequate coverage and evaluation criteria surgery is often not performed. This paper offers a framework for developing a quantitative system by which to evaluate surgical candidates by adopting well-established guidelines currently in use for reduction mammoplasties and suggests further analysis into a cost/benefit analysis for coverage of the procedure.
