  • [Title] [Skin adnexal tumors].
  • Adnexal skin tumors are rare neoplasms that develop from hair follicles, sebaceous glands and sweat glands.
  • In the majority of cases these tumors are benign, although metastases have been reported in rare occasion.
  • The diagnosis in always histologic and often it is sufficient to report the lesion simply as benign or malignant.
  • When the tumor is large, the Mohs technique can be used.
  • Overall, combination chemotherapy seems to be superior to single agent treatment.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • STUDY DESIGN: A total of 543 consecutive women, 41-89 years of age, who underwent hysterectomy in 1984 and 1994 for benign indications at Helsinki University Central Hospital were included in the study.
  • Preoperative information on indications for the procedure, current use of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) or other medication, parity, body mass index and blood pressure (BP) was obtained from medical records.
  • Women were classified as hypertensive if they currently used antihypertensive medication, had a history of hypertension without current medication or had a preoperatively measured BP > 140/90 mm Hg.
  • The association between myomas and hypertension was strongest (OR 3.6, 95% CI 1.2-10.9) among women with hysterectomies for benign adnexal tumors.
  • CONCLUSION: Uterine fibroids and/or adnexal tumors may share pathogenic features with the development of hypertension.

  • Female adnexal tumors of probable wolffian origin (FATWOs) are rare tumors arising in the broad ligament from the remnants of the mesonephric duct.
  • A 15-year-old girl who presented with a painful pelvic mass underwent a laparotomy with tumor resection.
  • The tumor recurred within 2 years and was treated with multiple chemotherapy regimens, including a platinum-based drug, and surgery for progressive disease.
  • The tumor was positive for c-kit oncogene (CD 117).
  • Pathology showed evidence of tumor necrosis, suggesting a possible beneficial effect, and she was recommenced on Gleevac in an effort to prevent recurrences.
  • FATWOs are very rare tumors.
  • Most cases are benign but have the potential to recur and metastasize.
  • Our patient's favorable response to Gleevac therapy supports the concept of targeted molecular therapy in patients with c-kit-positive FATWO tumors.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Contrast-enhanced sonography in the examination of benign and malignant adnexal masses.
  • Our objective was to characterize the properties of an intravascular ultrasonographic contrast agent in examination of adnexal masses and to compare contrast agent properties between benign and malignant adnexal tumors.
  • Fifty-eight consecutively examined women with suspected ovarian tumors were examined preoperatively by power Doppler ultrasonography, first without and then with contrast agent enhancement (Levovist).
  • Fourteen women had ovarian cancer, 3 had borderline ovarian tumors, 18 had benign ovarian neoplasms, and 23 had functional adnexal cystic masses or endometriomas.
  • The effect of the contrast agent was evaluated visually and by using computerized power Doppler signal intensity measurements.
  • In visual evaluation, the brightness of the power Doppler signal and the amount of recognizable vascular areas increased in each tumor after contrast agent administration.
  • The number of vessels in power Doppler ultrasonograms, both before and after contrast agent enhancement, was significantly higher in malignant than in benign adnexal masses, as also was the increase in the number of recognizable vessels after contrast agent administration.
  • Contrast agent uptake time was significantly shorter in malignant than in benign tumors.
  • No significant differences were found in the power Doppler signal intensities or their changes between benign and malignant tumors.
  • In conclusion, use of sonographic contrast agent facilitates imaging of tumor vessels.
  • For differentiation of benign and malignant tumors, the kinetic properties of the contrast agent, such as uptake and washout times, may have more potential than the use of the contrast agent in anatomic imaging of the tumor vessels.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Kinetics of a US contrast agent in benign and malignant adnexal tumors.
  • PURPOSE: To evaluate the effects of a microbubble contrast agent on the power Doppler ultrasonographic (US) examination of adnexal tumors, with a special focus on the timing of the transit of the microbubble bolus.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Seventy patients who were suspected of having ovarian tumors were examined preoperatively with contrast material-enhanced US.
  • Images obtained during a 5-minute examination were stored digitally, and the behavior of the contrast agent was evaluated objectively with measurement of the time-dependent image intensity at the region of interest with a computer program.
  • The Mann-Whitney U test was used to compare intensity changes and tumor parameters in benign and malignant adnexal tumors.
  • RESULTS: Both the baseline and maximum power Doppler intensities, as well as the absolute and relative (percent) rise in intensity, were significantly higher (P <.001) in malignant as compared with benign tumors.
  • The arrival time was shorter (17.5 vs 22.5 seconds; P =.005) and the duration of contrast agent effect was longer (190.4 vs 103.6 seconds; P <.001) in malignant tumors than they were in benign tumors.
  • The area under the time-intensity curve was significantly greater in malignant tumors compared with that in benign tumors (P <.001).
  • CONCLUSION: After microbubble contrast agent injection, malignant and benign adnexal lesions behave differently in degree, onset, and duration of Doppler US enhancement.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Infectious agents in ocular adnexal tumours].
  • In recent years, infectious agents have been increasingly recognised as an important pathogenetic factor for various malignant tumours of the ocular adnexa.
  • Ocular adnexal lymphoma (OAL), especially extranodal marginal cell lymphoma, is associated with Chlamydophila psittaci and Helicobacter pylori in certain geographic regions.
  • In general, proteins leading to cell cycle progression, like retinoblastoma protein, are elevated, and proteins inhibiting cell cycle progression, like p16 and p21, are absent or unable to function normally.
  • Kaposi sarcoma rarely occurs at the ocular adnexa in HIV-positive individuals and seems to be associated with Kaposi sarcoma-associated Herpes virus (KSHV) or HHV8.
  • The findings regarding these various infectious agents and cell cycle alterations might aid the development of new therapeutic strategies.

  • [Title] Preoperative diagnosis of ovarian tumors using pelvic contrast-enhanced sonography.
  • OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to assess the feasibility of using a contrast agent for the sonographic examination of adnexal tumors and identify discriminating parameters in the preoperative diagnosis of malignant tumors.
  • METHODS: We conducted a prospective descriptive monocenter study that analyzed validated echographic criteria and parameters of the enhancement curve obtained by sonographic contrast agent injection.
  • Patients included were referred for a second opinion after the discovery of a suspicious ovarian image.
  • RESULTS: Fifty-two tumors were analyzed.
  • Morphologic and Doppler criteria analyses were conducted as described in the literature.
  • The significant parameters of the enhancement curve were the time-intensity curve total area and the duration of activity of the contrast agent during the first phase of decay (P < .002).
  • The performance of the contrast agent was lower than that of the examiner's subjective diagnosis, with an area under the receiver operating characteristic curve (AUC) of 0.78 versus 0.80.
  • When borderline tumors were eliminated, there was an inversion of this, with an AUC of 0.85 versus 0.73.
  • The inclusion of contrast results in the examiner's diagnosis in the context of a bivariate model comparing malignant and borderline tumors with benign tumors provided an AUC of 0.88.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Contrast-enhanced sonography improves preoperative diagnosis of ovarian tumors parameters.
  • The significant parameters of the enhancement curve were significantly different for malignant and benign tumors.
  • Borderline tumors contribute to a reduction of the discriminating capacity of the contrast agent.
