  • Cervical and mediastinal cystic lymphangioma are rare and benign tumours.
  • They looked like a lateral and cervical mass.
  • Medical imaging allows to suspect the diagnosis but histology only may to assert it.
  • Sclerosis by chemical drugs is only an alternative if surgery is not possible.
  • A recovery is completely obtained if the whole tumour is removed.

  • Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is an important regulator of both benign and malignant disease processes in the thyroid gland.
  • VEGF-A is implicated in tumour growth and metastasis via blood vessels while VEGF-C and VEGF-D, involved in lymphangiogenesis, favour metastasis to the cervical lymph nodes in papillary thyroid carcinomas.
  • High levels of VEGF expression in thyroid tumour cells may correlate with a poorer outcome in papillary thyroid carcinomas.
  • Because of its important role in malignant angiogenesis, VEGF is the preferential target of a new variety of therapeutic agents called angiogenesis inhibitors.

  • [Title] A case-control study of cancer of the uterine cervix in Uganda.
  • As part of an epidemiological study of cancer in Uganda, we investigated social, sexual and reproductive factors in relation to the risk of cancer of the uterine cervix.
  • Patients with all cancer types or with benign tumours were recruited from hospitals in Kampala, Uganda, interviewed about various demographic and lifestyle factors and tested for antibodies against the human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV).
  • The case-control study reported here involves 702 HIV-seronegative women, 343 of whom were diagnosed with cancer of the uterine cervix.
  • Key findings were that the risk of cervical cancer increased linearly with the number of pregnancies [chi2(1)=44.7; P<0.0001]; a woman reporting having had 10 or more children had a roughly seven-fold increase in risk of the tumour as compared with women reporting fewer than four pregnancies (odds ratio=7.1; 95% confidence interval 3.8-13.2).
  • The risk also varied inversely with age at first reported sexual intercourse [chi2(1)=8.4; P=0.004], perhaps reflecting an earlier age of infection with human papillomavirus, the main causal agent.

  • [Title] Surgery and subsequent rehabilitation for cervical spine tumours compressing neural structures.
  • Bone malignancies account for merely about 1.5% of all cancers, with a small percentage of these tumours developing in the cervical spine.
  • However, the cervical spine is also the site of benign tumours and neoplasms involving not only bony tissue.
  • Benign tumours do not metastasize but pose a threat to the spinal cord when located intrathecally.
  • The most common cervical spine neoplasms are intradural tumours, usually extramedullary: neurofibromas, meningiomas or gliomas.Indications for surgery depend of the nature and location of the tumour and the consequences of tumour growth.
  • The choice of surgical approach and manner of stabilisation depend primarily on the location of the lesion and the presence of spinal cord compression.Rehabilitation is indicated in all patients, but is particularly important, and at the same time difficult, when the growth of the tumour has resulted in neurological disturbances.
  • Rehabilitation programmes should be designed individually for each patient and should account for the degree of paresis, stage of the underlying malignant disease, survival prognosis, disturbances in the function of other systems, apart from musculoskeletal apparatus, age of the patient, his or her commitment to treatment and other factors.The treatment of malignant neoplasms is usually associated with an unfavourable outcome.
  • However, combination drug treatments, radiation therapy and surgery with subsequent rehabilitation will often prolong survival, ameliorate suffering and improve patients' quality of life.
