  • [Title] Fetal gonadotrope cell origin of FSH-secreting pituitary adenoma - insight into human pituitary tumour pathogenesis.
  • PATIENTS: A 28-year-old woman presented with abdominal discomfort and irregular menses, enlarged multicystic ovaries and elevated serum oestradiol, with sustained high-normal FSH and low LH levels.
  • MEASUREMENTS: Endocrine studies were performed before and after curative surgery, with assessment of tumour hormone secretion in vitro, and immunostaining of tumour tissue for a series of gonadotrope proteins.
  • RESULTS: Immunocytochemistry showed that tumour cells were monohormonal for FSH.
  • Tumour culture in vitro confirmed secretion of FSH with minimal LH, that was unsuppressed by oestradiol or inhibin-A.
  • CONCLUSIONS: We propose that this pituitary adenoma represents an indolent tumour of monohormonal fetal gonadotrope cells that originated early in gestation.
  • Pituitary tumours may therefore arise from abnormal persistence of fetal cell types, with extremely slow growth over many years until reaching a size threshold to generate an endocrine syndrome.
  • Understanding fetal pituitary architecture and function may be more informative for new insights into pituitary tumour pathogenesis than classical theories of cancer biology that invoke unrestrained cell proliferation.

  • [Title] An adrenal rest tumour in the perirenal region in a patient with congenital adrenal hyperplasia due to congenital 3beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase deficiency.
  • BACKGROUND: In contrast to the high incidence of testicular adrenal rest tumours (TART) in adult male patients with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH), ovarian adrenal rest tumours in female CAH patients are very rare and other locations of adrenal rest tumours have never been reported.
  • Here, we report on an adult patient with CAH due to 3beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (HSD) deficiency with bilateral TART and additionally a large perirenal adrenal rest tumour.
  • Intensifying glucocorticoid medication did not result in decrease in POMC concentrations and shrinkage of size of the tumours.
  • At the age of 23 years, abdominal ultrasound was performed because of abdominal complaints, showing a round inhomogeneous structure with a diameter of 4 cm near the left renal hilus.
  • Histological investigation after removal of the tumour showed sheets of large polygonal cells with abundant eosinophilic cytoplasm, separated by dense fibrous tissue strands.
  • The histological and immunohistochemical profile resulted in a diagnosis of an adrenal rest tumour.
  • CONCLUSION: In adult CAH patients, ectopic adrenal rest tumours can be present outside the testicular region.
  • Further investigations are necessary to determine whether regularly screening for these tumours is useful.

  • [Title] Effects of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids in subjects with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
  • BACKGROUND: Long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid omega-3 levels are decreased in the hepatic tissue of patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
  • AIM: To investigate whether polyunsaturated fatty acid may be effective in the treatment of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
  • METHODS: Forty patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease were randomized into two groups for treatment of 6 months duration.
  • Outcome measurements were fatty liver assessed by abdominal ultrasound, liver aminotransferase and tumour necrosis factor-alpha serum levels, and insulin resistance assessed by HOMA(IR).
  • RESULTS: After 6 months of treatment, the DP group displayed a decrease in alanine aminotransferase levels (p<0.01), as well as in triglyceride levels (p<0.01), serum tumour necrosis factor-alpha levels (p<0.05) and in HOMA(IR) (p<0.05).
  • CONCLUSION: Our results indicate that alanine aminotransferase, triglyceride and serum tumour necrosis factor-alpha levels, as well as fatty liver improved after polyunsaturated fatty acid administration.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVES: To report various descriptions of the combination of a benign genital tumour with pleural and/or abdominal effusion throughout the years and to determine the paternity of this syndrome, commonly known as Meigs' syndrome.
  • He was the first to specify that removal of the tumour (benign ovarian cyst, solid ovarian tumour, fibroma of the broad ligament) was essential for the patient to be cured of the effusions and that it was wrong to postpone surgery.
  • In 1937, Meigs arrived at the same findings concerning ovarian fibromas and granulosa cell tumours, hence the name of Demons-Meigs which was given to this syndrome with the agreement of Meigs.
  • Inversely, all benign tumours of the genital tract should be included in Demons syndrome, even if Demons did not actually encounter any during his years of practice, but it was in the spirit of his observations.
  • CONCLUSION: Demons' syndrome includes all benign genital tumours, the Demons-Meigs eponym is reserved for the description of ovarian fibromas and granulosa cell tumours, and the Demons' pseudosyndrome includes all other entities.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Tumour components are foreign to surrounding tissue and may have a polymorphic presentation.
  • The natural history of an omphalocele and umbilical cord hernia dictates the presence of such anterior abdominal wall defects by approximately 12 weeks' gestation, once the gut returns from the peritoneal space within the umbilical stalk to the peritoneal cavity.
  • Adipose tissue is not described as a classic finding in an omphalocele or umbilical cord hernia.
  • CONCLUSION: Our case of umbilical cord hernia is the first described as strictly distal to, and not contained within, the abdominal wall cord insertion site, and to contain fat, thereby mimicking a cord teratoma.

  • Inflammatory Fibroid Polyp (IFP) is an extremely rare tumour involving the gastrointestinal tract (GI) and especially the stomach and small bowel.
  • It presents either as a solitary large or sessile lesion arising from the submucosa and despite a large size and sometimes infiltrating growth, the tumour is always benign and has a good prognosis.
  • Diagnosis was made preoperatively with abdominal mdCT.
  • The polyp itself does not have noteworthy radiological signs but must be included in the large essentially histological differential diagnosis of GI tumours.

  • [Title] Eliminating unenhanced CT when evaluating abdominal neoplasms in children.
  • OBJECTIVE: The purpose of our study was to evaluate a CT protocol that eliminates the unenhanced phase for imaging pediatric abdominal neoplasms.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively performed a case series study of all the abdominal CT scans on children and adolescents found in our archives.
  • The radiologists were separately asked to formulate the most probable diagnosis and to decide whether tumor calcification was present.
  • The sensitivity and specificity of each method for diagnosing the more frequent neoplasms were also measured.
  • The sensitivity and specificity of the two methods for the most frequent neoplasms were similar.
  • The evaluations without the unenhanced phase showed good sensitivity and specificity for tumor calcifications.
  • CONCLUSION: CT protocols without the unenhanced phase are a viable alternative for evaluating abdominal neoplasms in children and adolescents.

  • METHODS: In three phase II studies treating rectal cancer, cervical cancer and prostate cancer, this study replaced invasive (intra-tumoural) thermometry by tumour-related reference points or catheter sections in the rectum, vagina or urethra.
  • The mean MR-temperature in the tumour at steady-state as well as the mean T90 were significantly correlated with response for recurrent rectal carcinoma regarding palliation and analgesia (15 patients) and with pathohistological regression rate in soft tissue sarcoma (nine patients).
  • CONCLUSIONS: For tumours in the pelvis and in the lower extremities, invasive measurements can be replaced by minimally-invasive or non-invasive techniques, which provide equivalent or even more complete information.
  • Extending the application of these surveillance methods to abdominal tumours or liver metastases is a challenge, but strongly desirable for clinical reasons.

  • [Title] [Clinical value of wireless capsule endoscopy in diagnosis of small bowel disease in children].
  • METHODS: During the last 4 years (June, 2004-June, 2008), 46 times of wireless capsule endoscopy were performed in 43 patients with suspected small bowel disease, including obscure gastrointestinal bleeding (n = 11), recurrent abdominal pain (n = 20), chronic diarrhea (n = 9), protein losing enteropathy (n = 2), recurrent vomiting (n = 1).
  • Based on the wireless capsule endoscopy, diagnostic findings included Crohn's diseases (15), lymph follicular hyperplasia (4), nonspecific enteritis (4), vascular malformations (3), small bowel tumour (2), primary intestinal lymphangiectasia (2), gastrointestinal motility disorders (2), Meckel's diverticulum (1), angioma (1), small intestinal worm disease (1), duodenal ulcer (1), and polyposis syndromes (1).
  • CONCLUSION: Wireless capsule endoscopy is a noninvasive, safe and useful tool for the investigation of the small intestine in children, especially for obscure gastrointestinal bleeding and Crohn's disease.

  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Sixteen patients aged 39-70 years with intractable stoma problems underwent a modified intra-abdominal onlay technique with implantation of a large (26 x 36 cm) sheet of ePTFE mesh.
  • The mesh was removed, and a gastrointestinal stromal tumour was found.
  • Possible advantages of the procedure include stoma preservation, strengthening of the abdominal wall, and a reduced risk of recurrence, contamination, fistulization, and bowel adhesions and erosion.

  • [Title] Clear-cell variant of solid-pseudopapillary neoplasm of the pancreas: a case report and review of the literature.
  • Solid-pseudopapillary neoplasm (SPN) of the pancreas is a rare neoplasm reported to have a favourable prognosis because of its slow-growing behaviour.
  • Its clear cell variant creates challenges in distinction from other clear cell tumours in the pancreas.
  • We report a 31-year-old Cambodian woman who presented with abdominal pain and a palpable epigastric mass.
  • Exploratory laparotomy revealed a 5.2 cm well-demarcated tumour in the head of the pancreas, which was treated with Whipple procedure.
  • Microscopically, the tumour showed an extensive solid growth pattern consisting of cells with abundant clear cytoplasm, and papillary areas containing cells with eosinophilic cytoplasm, indicating a clear-cell solid-papillary neoplasm.
  • The tumour cells were immunonegative for chromogranin-A and synaptophysin but positive for CD56, cyclin D1, CD10, vimentin, and progesterone receptor.
  • Difficulties are recognized in differentiating clear-cell SPN from "sugar" tumours, metastatic renal cell carcinoma, clear-cell variant of pancreatic endocrine neoplasm and ductal adenocarcinoma.
  • When facing such difficulties, nuclear and cytoplamic beta-catenin, nuclear E-cadherin expressions and absence of membranous E-cadherin staining are useful in differentiating clear-cell SPN from other clear cell tumours in the pancreas.
  • Although a rare neoplasm, it is important to recognize this entity for appropriate management.

  • [Title] Successful immunomodulatory therapy in castleman disease with paraneoplastic pemphigus vulgaris.
  • Castleman disease is a rare lymphoproliferative disorder.
  • The clinical signs and symptoms of the disease are primarily mediated by cytokines, especially interleukin-6.
  • Search for neoplasm revealed a retroperitoneal Castleman tumour sized 15 x 6 x 5 cm in the abdominal MRI.
  • The tumour was a bleeder, so the removal was partial.
  • Histological examination showed hyalin hypervascular Castleman disease.
  • Considering her young, fertile age and the multicentric Castleman disease, non-cytostatic immunomodulatory therapy was started including steroid, cyclosporine-A and thalidomide treatment.
  • The control abdominal CT showed a small residual tumour on the bladder.
  • The residual tumour was removed in repeated surgery.
  • At this time the histological examination showed transient type tumour between plasma cell and vascular variant.
  • 4 years after the onset of the disease. (18)FDG PET/CT examination showed low metabolic active mass in the right iliacal region, but our patient had no symptoms or complaints.
  • She is on 200 mg thalidomide a day and no tumour progression can be seen.
  • Castleman disease can be successfully treated with non-cytostatic immunomodulatory therapy.

  • [Title] Primary malignant retroperitoneal tumors: analysis of a single institutional experience.
  • AIMS: In order to achieve complete resection in the surgical management of retroperitoneal tumors, it is crucial to know the tumor's anatomical location relative to neighboring organs.
  • METHODS: Forty-nine patients with primary malignant retroperitoneal tumors were divided by tumor location into two groups [upper abdomen (group 1) or lower abdomen (group 2)], and clinicopathological features, tumor recurrence, and patient survival were assessed.
  • RESULTS: No significant differences in preoperative clinical characteristics existed between two groups, and liposarcoma was the most frequently observed tumor type.
  • The 5-year survival rate of patients with tumors smaller than 10 cm was 78.4%, while that of patients with tumors larger than 10 cm was 38.1% (p=0.017).
  • CONCLUSIONS: An upper abdominal tumor location is a positive prognostic factor even if small tumor size (<10 cm) and complete resection of the tumor are still more important factors to improve outcome in patients with malignant primary retroperitoneal tumors.
  • Because complete resection was shown to be the most important prognostic factor, an aggressive and careful surgical approach is recommended for the treatment of such tumors.

  • Whole body somatostatin receptor scintigraphy showed tracer accumulation in the liver lesions, with no extrahepatic tumour, possibly the primary origin.
  • Therefore, a followed-up CT scan of the abdomen showed, as well as the metastatic changes within the liver, a wellvascularised jejunal tumour suspected to be the primary focus of the disseminated neuroendocrine neoplasm.

  • [Title] Long-term endoscopic and clinical follow-up of untreated type 1 gastric neuroendocrine tumours.
  • BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Type 1 gastric neuroendocrine tumour surveillance and treatment are a matter of debate.
  • Based on the favourable behaviour of this neoplasm, we performed an endoscopic and clinical follow-up in 11 patients affected by type 1 gastric neuroendocrine tumours, avoiding any specific treatment.
  • METHODS: Between 1994 and 2006, we prospectively recorded the data of 11 untreated patients with type 1 gastric neuroendocrine tumours who underwent an endoscopic and clinical follow-up.
  • All the patients were also evaluated by means of an abdominal computed tomography scan, somatostatin receptor scintigraphy and blood tests.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our data confirm the literature data of the indolent behaviour of type 1 gastric neuroendocrine tumours and suggest that a careful endoscopic follow-up, without any treatment, might represent a reasonable and safe option in selected patients.

  • Among those known, most presented with abdominal (56%, M:F 1.4:1) vs. only facial tumors (35%, M:F 3.0:1).
  • Abdominal tumors occurred in older (mean age: 7.0 vs. 6.0 years; p < 0.001) and more frequently in female children (68% vs. 50%; OR 2.2, 95% CI 1.5-3.5).
  • Jaw tumors were characterized by young age and male gender, but presentation has shifted away from facial to mostly abdominal.

  • [Title] Burkitt lymphoma: residual abdominal tumor volume after induction therapy correlates with outcome.
  • Staging investigations in the Malawi 2003 BL protocol included abdominal ultrasonography.
  • This sometimes demonstrated tumor that was not palpable.
  • Patients with no palpable tumor following induction with three courses of cyclophosphamide were considered to be in remission, although residual intraabdominal tumor was documented in some by chance.
  • We repeated ultrasonography on day 29 on 22 new patients with non-palpable abdominal BL following induction.
  • The relapse rate after 1 year correlated with the largest residual tumor volume, and was 17% for tumors 0-35 ml, and 75% for tumors > or = 35 ml in volume.

  • It can present as a large abdominal mass.
  • We report the case of a 60 year old man who presented with abdominal distention.
  • CT scan showed a mass occupying the whole of the abdomen and pelvis.
  • Exploration of abdomen revealed a jelly like mass about 20 x 20 cm in size.
  • Mass was excised completely and confirmed as spindle cell tumour between grade I-II on histopathology.

  • Persistent low-grade inflammation, as indicated by higher circulating levels of inflammatory mediators such as C-reactive protein, interleukin-6 and tumour necrosis factor-alpha, is a strong risk factor for several chronic diseases.
  • Evidence is strong that circulating levels of inflammatory markers are elevated with total and abdominal obesity, possibly owing to a higher secretion rate of cytokines by adipose tissue in obese people.

  • A certain pressure exists within closed cavities such as the skull, the abdomen, the thorax, therefore allowing a good supplying to the organs inside.
  • Variations of intraabdominal pressure (IAP) over 10 mmHg will cause an intraabdominal hypertension (IAH) altering both the tissue and cell blood pressure and having an impact on some organs, thus achieving the co-called "abdominal compartment syndrome" (ACS).
  • Intraabdominal pressure increase can lead to some negative effects on both the intra- and extra-abdominal organs such as: cardiovascular, renal, respiratory and digestive systems.
  • ACS is defined as a pathologic status originating from the intraabdominal pressure increase over 20-25 mmHg, values determining a perfusion pressure decrease within the abdominal organs (APP).
  • IAP followed by IAH occurs in ileus, abdominal tumors, intraabdominal hemorrhage and in some morbid conditions: obesity, hepatic cirrhosis with ascites, pregnancy.

  • A 29-year-old female presented with intermittent nausea, vomiting, fevers, abdominal pain and fatigue.
  • CT scans of the abdomen revealed inflammatory changes within the mesentery and small bowel.
  • Over the past 2 years, the patient suffered debilitating paroxysmal abdominal pain despite treatment with prednisone, azathioprine, sulfasalazine and narcotics.
  • The patient has since had a dramatic improvement in her back and abdominal symptoms and has tapered off of prednisone, azathioprine and narcotics.

  • A 36-year-old man with no past medical history was referred to hospital for abdominal pain with clinical and biological signs of internal bleeding.
  • An abdominal CT scan showed a huge right liver mass, with regular margins and a fluid content, indicating a large intratumoral haemorrhage complicating hepatocellular carcinoma.
  • Due to haemodynamic stability and the signs of inferior vena cava compression conservative management was chosen prior to surgical treatment of the tumour.
  • After evaluation of liver function and the extent of the tumour, a surgical procedure was performed via a subcostal incision with midline extension and sternotomy to control the intrapericardial inferior vena cava and perform a veno-venous bypass with the technique used for orthotopic liver transplantation.

  • [Title] Modified midline abdominal wound closure technique in complicated/high risk laparotomies.
  • OBJECTIVE: To assess the local wound complications in complicated/ high risk laparotomies in terms of wound dehiscence and incisional hernia formation with a modified technique of midline abdominal wound closure.
  • METHODOLOGY: Cases of complicated/high risk abdominal conditions, which required laparotomy, were included in the study.
  • A modified midline abdominal wound closure technique was used.
  • RESULTS: Out of the 36 patients undergoing this surgical technique, 20 (55.55%) had inflammatory/intra-abdominal sepsis, 8 (22.22%) had trauma, 7 (19.44%) had neoplasia and 1 (2.77%) had vascular aetiology.
  • CONCLUSION: Patients with extensive widespread generalized peritonitis and metastatic abdominal tumours need special attention regarding wound closure.
  • This modified technique of midline abdominal wound closure is associated with low incidence of wound dehiscence and incisional hernia formation.

  • [Title] A ruptured gastrointestinal stromal tumour of the transverse mesocolon: a case report.
  • We discuss the long history of a patient still alive with a primary gastrointestinal stromal tumour (GIST) of the transverse mesocolon: initially it presented as an acute complication, namely a haemorrhagic shock caused by rupture of the tumour and it recurred twice locally in the years following primary resection.
  • Six years after the resection of the primary tumour, a liver metastasis was discovered, which was removed by radio frequency ablation (RFA).
  • He is treated with imatinib mesylate (Glyvec, Novartis, Vilvoorde, Belgium) since and has had a stable disease for 6 months.
  • Gastrointestinal stromal tumours outside the gastrointestinal tract are rare.
  • Nowadays radio frequency ablation can be a solution for irresectable liver metastases, and imatinib mesylate can bring improvement for advanced and metastasized tumours.
  • Whether this could also be useful as an adjuvant therapy has not yet been investigated, but it could be important knowing that 38% of the tumours recur locally and 15% metastasize.
  • The most important prognostic factors for gastrointestinal stromal tumours are grading and complete resection.

  • [Title] MRI and hybrid PET/CT for monitoring tumour metastasis in a metastatic breast cancer model in rabbit.
  • OBJECTIVE: To study tumour growth and metastasis in a rabbit metastatic breast cancer (MBC) model and find the most sensitive screening modality in monitoring tumour metastasis.
  • METHODS: The MBC model was established by injecting a VX2 tumour mass suspension into the mammary glands of 23 rabbits and was monitored by using physical examination, X-ray, MRI and hybrid PET/CT.
  • RESULTS: Of all 23 rabbits, axillary lymph node metastasis was detected in 21 (91%) at day 33 after tumour inoculation, mediastinal node metastasis in five (22%) at day 42, abdominal node metastasis in two (9%) at day 48, lung metastasis in six (26%) at day 39, liver metastasis in three (13%) at day 48, and lumbar spine metastasis in one (4%) at day 51.
  • Tumour invasion of pleura was found in one, stomach wall in one, and pleura and stomach concurrently in one rabbit.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The MBC model used here exhibits fast tumour growth and extensive metastasis in a relatively short period.
  • MRI is superior to PET/CT in monitoring tumour metastasis.

  • Desmoplastic small round cell tumors are rare aggressive cancers of adolescence and early adulthood.
  • It has recently been separated from other small round cell tumors because of its pathological characteristics and clinical features.
  • They are usually intra-abdominal tumors affecting young people and have classically been associated with a bad prognosis.
  • However, in recent years there have been reports on desmoplastic small round cell tumors affecting other body regions, including the paratesticular area.
  • Histological and immunohistochemical diagnosis confirmed a desmoplastic small round cell tumor.
  • Today, 6 months after diagnosis the patient remains well and free of disease.
  • Recent reviews on desmoplastic small round cell tumors affecting the paratesticular area have shown a better prognosis for tumors of this origin compared to abdominal ones.
  • We should include this lesion among the differential diagnosis of paratesticular tumors, mainly in children and adolescents.

  • [Title] Three-dimensional spatial modelling of the correlation between abdominal motion and lung tumour motion with breathing.
  • The aim of this research was to investigate whether a spatial correlation could be found between an external 3-D respiratory signal and the tumour trajectory.
  • The respiratory signal was obtained by tracking the abdominal movement and the tumour trajectory was obtained by automatically determining the tumour position in a series of portal images.
  • Three different models, based on Systems Identification, are presented to model the correlation using a 1-D respiratory signal, a 3-D respiratory signal and a 3-D respiratory signal together with previously determined tumour positions.
  • Adequate correlation was found for all models in the direction of the tumour movement with standard deviations of 0.89 mm, 0.72 mm and 0.75 mm, respectively, and model fit of Rt2 = 0.19, 0.63 and 0.82, respectively.
  • In summary, it is possible to spatially correlate a 3-D respiratory signal with the tumour trajectory using this approach.
  • A 3-D respiratory signal is preferable to a 1-D signal in modelling the tumour motion that is not along the main axis of tumour movement.

  • With the trend towards minimally invasive and nephron-sparing surgery for renal masses, laparoscopic partial nephrectomy and energy ablative techniques have become common approaches to treat low-stage tumours.
  • This review illustrates the imaging of these complications and of tumour recurrence, with the conclusion that imaging plays an important role in their diagnosis, and in the infrequent situation that intervention is needed, helps to plan subsequent management.

  • Retroperitoneal schwannoma is a very rare benign tumour that accounts for only a small percentage of retroperitoneal tumours.
  • The authors report their experience with a case of a voluminous retroperitoneal mass in a 42-year- old male patient, incidentally discovered during a diagnostic search for a blunt abdominal trauma.
  • Three years later, owing to a slight increase in this mass and vague abdominal discomfort reported by the patient, surgical excision was performed.
  • The authors, after a short discussion of the subject, go on to examine the diagnostic and therapeutic treatments of this rare benign neoplasm, which always arouses lively clinical and scientific interest.

  • [Title] Obstructive jaundice caused by secondary pancreatic tumor from malignant solitary fibrous tumor of pleura: a case report.
  • A 77-year-old man on systemic chemotherapy against postoperative bilateral multiple lung metastases of malignant solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura suffered from pruritus and jaundice.
  • Abdominal computed tomography showed a tumor with peripheral enhancement in the pancreatic head, accompanied with the dilatation of intra- and extra-hepatic bile ducts.
  • He was diagnosed as having obstructive jaundice caused by a pancreatic head tumor.
  • The pancreatic head tumor was presumably diagnosed as the metastasis of malignant solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura, because the findings on the pancreatic head tumor on abdominal CT were similar to those on the primary lung lesion of malignant solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura.
  • The pancreatic tumor grew rapidly after the implantation of metallic stent in the inferior part of the common bile duct.
  • Autopsy revealed a tumor that spread from the pancreatic head to the hepatic hilum.
  • Immunohistochemically the pancreatic head tumor cells were negative for staining of alpha-smooth muscle actin (alpha-SMA) or CD117, but positive for vimentin, CD34 and CD99.
  • These findings are consistent with those on malignant solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura.
  • We report the first case of obstructive jaundice caused by a secondary pancreatic tumor from malignant solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura.

  • In addition, (131)I-DOTATATE showed significative tumour uptake, despite not so persistent after 24h. (131)I-DOTATATE can represent a cost-effective alternative to lutetium labeled peptide for neuroendocrine tumours therapy.

  • [Title] Value of routine renal and abdominal ultrasonography in patients undergoing prostatectomy.
  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the frequency of urological and non-urological abnormalities detected on routine renal and abdominal ultrasonography in patients undergoing surgery for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and to see if they affected the intended decision for prostate surgery.
  • All patients had abdominal ultrasonography performed during routine preoperative workup.
  • Urological conditions detected included uni/bilateral hydronephrosis (34 pts), vesical stones (34 pts), renal cysts (15 pts), renal stones (6 pts), small shrunken kidneys (2 pts), renal tumour (1 pt) and bladder carcinoma (1 pt).
  • CONCLUSION: The study shows that a sizeable number of patients (44%) had urological and non-urological conditions detected by renal and abdominal ultrasonography.
  • However, in only one patient (0.4%) with bladder carcinoma, surgery for prostate was postponed and bladder tumour was dealt with prior to transurethral resection of prostate (TURP).
  • As ultrasonography is a non-invasive, cost-effective and quite a safe imaging technique, in author's opinion abdominal and renal tract evaluation by ultrasonography should be routinely performed in patients undergoing surgery for BPH.

85. Bujko K, Sopylo R, Kepka L: Local excision after radio(chemo)therapy for rectal cancer: is it safe? Clin Oncol (R Coll Radiol); 2007 Nov;19(9):693-700

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • According to current opinion, local excision in rectal cancer should be limited to selected T1N0 tumours.
  • Preoperative radio(chemo)therapy provides an opportunity for expanding the use of local excision for more advanced tumours.
  • The key rationale of this approach is the correlation between the radiosensitivity and inherited low aggressiveness of rectal cancer and the correlation between the radiosensitivity of the primary tumour and the radiosensitivity of mesorectal nodal disease.
  • This allows for a selection of local excision for radiosensitive tumours or conversion to abdominal surgery in radioresistant cases.
  • In some series, the tumours were initially large and unresectable by the transanal approach.

  • [Title] Nude mice multi-drug resistance model of orthotopic transplantation of liver neoplasm and Tc-99m MIBI SPECT on p-glycoprotein.
  • AIM: To establish a model of drug-resistant neoplasms using a nude mice model, orthotopic transplantation of liver neoplasm and sporadic abdominal chemotherapy.
  • METHODS: Hepatocellular carcinoma cells HepG2 were cultured and injected subdermally to form the tumor-supplying mice.
  • The orthotopic drug-resistant tumors were formed by implanting the tumor bits under the envelope of the mice liver and induced by abdominal chemotherapy with Pharmorubicin.
  • Physical examination, ultrasonography, spiral CT and visual inspection were used to examine tumor progression.
  • Tc-99m sestamibi scintigraphy was performed by obtaining planar abdominal images at 20 min after injection, and the liver/heart ratios were calculated.
  • RESULTS: Post-implantation mortality was 0% (0/25), tumor implantation success was 90% (22/25), and the rate of implanting successfully for the second time was 100% (3/3).
  • Tumor induction using Pharmorubicin was 80% (16/20).
  • CONCLUSION: We have established an in vivo model of mdr1 in nude mice by orthotopic transplantation of liver neoplasm coupled to chemotherapy.

  • [Title] Abdominal wall endometriosis: a report of 2 cases with primary diagnosis by fine needle aspiration.
  • BACKGROUND: Abdominal wall endometriosis is usually preceded by obstetric operations and occasionally can be spontaneous.
  • The diagnosis can be suspected clinically when there is systemic endometriosis or cyclic pain; otherwise it is difficult to differentiate it from other abdominal tumors and nonneoplastic conditions.
  • Fine needle aspiration is an extremely valuable and safe tool for preoperative evaluation of abdominal wall endometriosis as the disease usually presents as a cutaneous/subcutaneous mass.
  • CASES: Two cases of abdominal wall endometriosis occurred.
  • CONCLUSION: The cytopathologic diagnosis ofendometriosis is feasible, and we need to include endometriosis in the differential diagnosis of an abdominal wall mass in a females.

  • [Title] Loss of chromosome 13q is a frequently acquired event in genetic progression of soft tissue sarcomas in the abdominal cavity.
  • Soft tissue sarcomas (STSs) arising in the abdominal cavity constitute a group of aggressive tumours, typically of very large size and with a high recurrence rate in the affected patients.
  • While some distinct genetic etiologies have been described, the genetic background of this tumour group is not well characterised.
  • Here we have assessed gross chromosomal alterations in a series of such tumours obtained from 26 patients.
  • CGH alterations were found in tumours from 23 of the patients (88%), the most frequent being loss of 13q21 (46%) and gain of 17p and/or q (46%).
  • Furthermore, mutations of C-KIT exon 11 were demonstrated in five tumours from four patients, and the two myxoid liposarcomas exhibited a translocation t(12;16)(q13;p11).
  • From the pattern of chromosomal alterations detected, a genetic progression of events was clearly evident in the tumours.
  • The findings provide a starting point for further dissection of the target genes involved in development of STSs in the abdominal cavity.

  • A paradoxical but common finding in the obesity clinic is the identification of individuals who can be considered 'inappropriately' healthy for their degree of obesity.
  • For instance, all morbidly obese patients, irrespective of their insulin resistance, showed increased expression of TNFalpha (tumour necrosis factor alpha) and activation of JNK1/2 (c-Jun N-terminal kinase 1/2).

  • [Title] Yolk sac tumours of the ovary: evaluation of clinicopathological features and prognostic factors.
  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the clinicopathological prognostic features, factors and outcomes of chemotherapy in ovarian yolk sac tumours (YST).
  • The most common symptoms at diagnosis included abdominal swelling or mass (72%) and abdominopelvic pain (62%).
  • The location of the tumour was bilateral in 2 cases.
  • Eighteen patients underwent unilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, two bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy and two cystectomy, while 10 patients had total abdominal hysterectomy and two bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy.
  • Ten (31%) patients suffered from a recurrence of the disease with a median time to recurrence of 8 months (range, 6-28 months).
  • The most common site of recurrence was the intra-abdominal space, with 8 patients.
  • While age, histology (mixed vs. pure), stage, tumour size, ascites, and marker levels were not found as prognostic factors, the presence of residual tumour (P=0.014) and BEP chemotherapy (P=0.016) were significant prognostic factors in univariate analysis.
  • In these tumours, adjunctive therapeutic modalities to eradicate intra-abdominal disease and effective salvage therapy strategies are needed.

  • [Title] Basophilic intracytoplasmic viral matrix inclusions distributed widely in layer hens affected with avian-leukosis-virus-associated tumours.
  • Layer hens (310 days old) affected with subcutaneous tumours were investigated pathologically.
  • Basopholic intracytoplasmic viral matrix inclusions (MIs) were widely distributed in the chickens affected with subcutaneous myxoma rhabdomyosarcoma, perineuroma, glioma, intra-abdominal adenocarcinoma, and nephroblastoma.
  • They were also observed in the podocytes of glomeruli and renal epithelium in the kidneys, tumour cells of nephroblastoma, chondrocytes of the trachea, squamous-epithelial cells of the pharynx, and nerve cells of the cerebrum and tumour cells of the glioma in the cerebellum.
  • The gene product specific for subgroup A of ALV was detected in the livers or tumours by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction.
  • This result suggests that MIs can be formed in organs rather than muscular systems in the chickens naturally affected with ALV-associated tumours.
