RESUMO

A 63-year-old man was pointed out a mass lesion in his chest X-ray at a medical checkup and referred to our hospital for further examination. Chest computed tomography showed a 4 cm-diameter tumor in the left upper lobe. He was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma by bronchoscopic biopsy. Therefore, we performed left upper lobectomy. The tumor was diagnosed as pulmonary blastoma with the differentiation of adenocarcinoma and large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma.

RESUMO

The case was a 56-year-old man. A nodular shadow of the left upper lobe was found in the chest computed tomography, and a diagnosis of adenocarcinoma was obtained by bronchoscopy. Preoperative 3-dimensional computed tomography (3D-CT) angiography indicated an extremely rare pulmonary artery bifurcation abnormality in which A4b+5 and A8+9 bifurcate from the left main pulmonary artery. Thoracoscopic left upper lobectomy and lymph node dissection were performed. Pathological diagnosis was adenocarcinoma with pStage I B. The mediastinal basal pulmonary artery is extremely rare, and to our knowledge, the bifurcation pattern of this case has not been reported elsewhere. The 3D-CT angiography was useful to detect the anatomical vascular abnormalities of the pulmonary artery before surgery, for the safe performance of the thoracoscopic surgery.

RESUMO

Objective: To study the proportion and clinicopathological characteristics of gastric adenocarcinoma with enteroblastic differentiation (GAED) in gastric cancers showing an elevated serum alpha fetoprotein(AFP). Methods: A total of 724 resected gastric adenocarcinomas were collected from 2008 to 2018 at the 904 Hospital of Joint Service Support Force, and cases with pre-operative serum AFP>10 µg/L were screened. From the cases with elevated serum AFP, GAED cases were further evaluated based on morphology. Then the clincopathological features and immunohistochemical phenotypes of GAED were reviewed. In addition, the amplification of HER2 gene was detected with fluorescence in situ hybridization(FISH). When overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS) of GAED were analyzed, 289 cases ordinary gastric adenocarcinoma with normal serum AFP were employed as a control. Results: The percentage of GAED was 44% (11/25) in gastric cancers with elevated serum AFP. GAED was histologically tubular or papillary with clear cytoplasm, and some GAED cases showed cystadenoid structure similar to embryo sac (5 cases), homogeneous eosinophilic granules (4 cases) and intragland ulareosinophilic material (6 cases). All 11 GAED cases had lymph node metastasis. Liver metastasis and vascular thrombus were observed in 2 cases and 5 cases respectively. GAED was immunohistochemically positive for CDX2 (11/11), CD10 (8/11) and MUC2(3/11), which were intestinal epithelium differentiation markers. Meanwhile, primitive markers SALL4 (8/11), GPC3 (7/11) and AFP (5/11) were also expressed in GAED, and HER2 gene amplification was found in 3 cases (3/11) of GAED. Lastly, the PFS of GAED were significantly shorter than that of the control group (P=0.02), while OS was not statistically different between these two groups (P=0.99). Conclusions: Patients with GAED usually have a higher rate of elevated serum AFP in gastric adenocarcinoma, and the cancer exhibites features of both intestinal and primitive differentiation. As GAED is highly invasive, the prognosis of GAED may be poor. For GAED, the diagnosis of well-differentiated or moderately-differentiated adenocarcinoma should be avoided, because this diagnosis leads to underestimated malignant potential.

RESUMO

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) refers to a small, short non-coding RNA of endogenous class. They have shown to have an increasingly altered expression in many types of cancer, including colorectal cancer (CRC).In the present study, miRNA TaqManMGB and qRT-PCR was used to quantify the expression and clinical significance of 3 mature human miRNA in 82 pairs of colorectal adenocarcinoma tissues and normal adjacent tissue samples (NATS) collected from patients of the south-east part of Romania. Differences between CRC and NATS were analyzed using Wilcoxon test, while correlations between miRNAs expression levels and clinicopathological features were examined using non-parametric tests. In addition, the ability of selected miRNAs to function as biomarkers and, as potential indicators in CRC prognosis was also examined.When the miRNA expression was compared in CRC related NATS, miR-143, and miR-145 were significantly underexpressed (4.99 ±â€Š-1.02 vs -5.66 ±â€Š-1.66, P < .001; -4.85 ±â€Š-0.59 vs -9.27 ±â€Š-1.51, P < .001, respectively), while the pattern of miR-92a was significantly overexpressed (-5.55 ±â€Š-2.83 vs -4.92 ±â€Š-2.44, P < .001). Moreover, the expression levels of selected miRNAs were identified to be correlated with gradual increases in fold change expression with the depth of tumor invasion, lymph node invasion, and maximal increases with distant metastasis. Furthermore, the receiver operating characteristic analysis demonstrated that potential diagnostic of miR-143, miR-145, and miR-92a in discriminating CRC from NATS, with the area under the curve of 0.74, 0.85, and 0.84 respectively. The Kaplan-Meier and the log-rank test showed that a high level of miR-92a and low levels of miR-143 and miR-145 predicted poor survival rate in our cohorts.In conclusion, we can summarize that miR-145 and miR-143 are decreased, while miR-92 is increased in CRC compared to NATS, and associated with different stages of CRC pathogenesis. Thus, the expression of selected miRNAs can represent potential diagnostic and prognostic tools in patients with CRC from Romania.

RESUMO

RATIONALE: Cancer-related stroke has been regarded as an emerging subtype of ischemic event. Acute treatment for this subtype may include the antiplatelet agents, anticoagulants, or endovascular intervention. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 63-year-old woman with sudden-onset right hemiparesis and conscious change was sent to our emergency department. The patient had underlying sigmoid adenocarcinoma and received chemotherapy FOLFIRI (FOL, folinic acid; F, fluorouracil; and IRI, irinotecan) with targeted therapy cetuximab following lower anterior resection since the diagnosis was made. DIAGNOSES: Brain magnetic resonance angiography revealed a filling defect in left carotid bulb, and neurosonography showed a thick atherosclerotic plaque (size 4.9 mm) in the left internal carotid artery on day 5 after the onset of stroke. INTERVENTIONS: During the first three hours after onset, administration of IV tissue plasminogen activator did not resolve the thrombus. Dabigatran (110 mg bid) started on day 7. OUTCOMES: The atherosclerotic plaque dissolved on day 24. The patient recovered her muscle strength but still had nonfluent speech in mild extent. LESSONS: Thrombolytic and anticoagulant medications in this patient suggested the thrombus formation with fibrin-rich content which may be attributable to both cancer and chemotherapy. Dabigatran, an oral anticoagulant, had a benefit for this subtype of ischemic stroke among patients with cancer.

RESUMO

A 60-year-old woman was referred to our hospital because of possible miliary brain metastases of unknown primary origin. On admission, she was alert and had no apparent motor weakness. Neuroradiological examinations revealed more than 100 small enhancing lesions, some of which had undergone cystic changes, suggesting multiple metastases. However, plain chest and abdominal CT revealed no abnormalities, and fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography could not reveal the primary origin of the cancer. Blood examination revealed no apparent abnormalities, except for tumor markers, including pro-gastrin-releasing peptide and carcinoembryonic antigen. On day 22, the patient underwent a biopsy through right frontal craniotomy. Histopathological findings indicated metastases from cancer. Immunohistochemistry was positive for cytokeratin(CK)7 and thyroid transcription factor-1 while negative for CK20(-), CK5/6, and p40, resulting in the diagnosis of lung adenocarcinoma. Genetic testing showed negative for EGFR mutation and positive for ALK fusion gene. From the day 48, whole brain radiotherapy was started, and the ALK inhibitor was prescribed from day 64. Metastatic brain tumors of unknown primary are rare. Miliary brain metastases from an unknown primary origin are rare. To our knowledge, this is the first case of military brain metastases of an unknown primary origin, which was later determined to have originated from ALK fusion-positive lung cancer.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: It has been widely accepted that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) play important roles in the development and progression of human diseases. Many association prediction models have been proposed for predicting lncRNA functions and identifying potential lncRNA-disease associations. Nevertheless, among them, little effort has been attempted to measure lncRNA functional similarity, which is an essential part of association prediction models. RESULTS: In this study, we presented an lncRNA functional similarity calculation model, IDSSIM for short, based on an improved disease semantic similarity method, highlight of which is the introduction of information content contribution factor into the semantic value calculation to take into account both the hierarchical structures of disease directed acyclic graphs and the disease specificities. IDSSIM and three state-of-the-art models, i.e., LNCSIM1, LNCSIM2, and ILNCSIM, were evaluated by applying their disease semantic similarity matrices and the lncRNA functional similarity matrices, as well as corresponding matrices of human lncRNA-disease associations coming from either lncRNADisease database or MNDR database, into an association prediction method WKNKN for lncRNA-disease association prediction. In addition, case studies of breast cancer and adenocarcinoma were also performed to validate the effectiveness of IDSSIM. CONCLUSIONS: Results demonstrated that in terms of ROC curves and AUC values, IDSSIM is superior to compared models, and can improve accuracy of disease semantic similarity effectively, leading to increase the association prediction ability of the IDSSIM-WKNKN model; in terms of case studies, most of potential disease-associated lncRNAs predicted by IDSSIM can be confirmed by databases and literatures, implying that IDSSIM can serve as a promising tool for predicting lncRNA functions, identifying potential lncRNA-disease associations, and pre-screening candidate lncRNAs to perform biological experiments. The IDSSIM code, all experimental data and prediction results are available online at https://github.com/CDMB-lab/IDSSIM .

RESUMO

The purpose of this study was to report the clinicopathological characteristics and treatment outcomes of 45 rectal cancer patients who have a history of cervical cancer with or without remote radiotherapy. Twenty-nine patients (64.4%) with a history of cervical cancer treated with pelvic radiotherapy were classified as group A, 16 (35.6%) patients with a history of cervical cancer not treated with radiotherapy were classified as group B. The median duration between radiotherapy for cervical cancer and rectal adenocarcinoma diagnosis was 18 years. At the time of rectal cancer diagnosis, 5 (17.2%) patients presented stage I disease, 15 (51.7%) had stage II, 1 (3.4%) had stage III, and 8 (27.6%) had stage IV. The patients in group A had older age, higher rates of gross ulcerative lesions, low hemoglobin levels, and a lower rate of lymph node metastases. The patients with secondary rectal cancer developed after radiotherapy for cervical cancer usually presented with abnormal abdominal symptoms, such as proctitis, cystitis, or rectal fistula. Higher colostomy rate was found in this group of patients due to severe pelvic fibrosis or proctitis.

RESUMO

A competing-risks model was developed in this study to identify the significant prognostic factors and evaluate the cumulative incidence of cause-specific death in gallbladder adenocarcinoma (GBAC), with the aim of providing guidance on effective clinical treatments.All patients with GBAC in the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database during 1973 to 2015 were identified. The potential prognostic factors were identified using competing-risks analyses implemented using the R and SAS statistical software packages. We calculated the cumulative incidence function (CIF) for cause-specific death and death from other causes at each time point. The Fine-Gray proportional-subdistribution-hazards model was then applied in univariate and multivariate analyses to test the differences in CIF between different groups and identify independent prognostic factors.This study included 3836 eligible patients who had been enrolled from 2004 to 2015 in the SEER database. The univariate analysis indicated that age, race, AJCC stage, RS, tumor size, SEER historic stage, grade, surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy and adjuvant therapy (RCT, SRT, SCT and SRCT) were significant factors affecting the probability of death due to GBAC. The multivariate analysis indicated that age, race, AJCC stage, RS status, tumor size, grade and SRT were independent prognostic factors affecting GBAC cancer-specific death. A nomogram model was constructed based on multivariate models for death related to GBAC.We have constructed the first competing-risks nomogram for GBAC. The model was found to perform well. This novel validated prognostic model may facilitate the choosing of beneficial treatment strategies and help when predicting survival.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Cervical cancer is one of the common malignancies that afflict women worldwide. In rare cases, cervical cancer leads to ovarian metastasis (OM), resulting in poor outcomes. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to evaluate the incidence and risk factors of OM in patients with adenocarcinoma (ADC) or squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the cervix. METHODS: We searched articles focused on OM in cervical carcinoma in PubMed, Embase, and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials. A meta-analysis was performed including selected publications. Pooled odds ratio (OR) and 95% confidence interval (95% CI) were calculated using random-effects models. The heterogeneity was evaluated by the I test. I > 50% was considered high heterogeneity. RESULTS: A total of 12 studies with 18,389 patients with cervical cancer in International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics stages IA to IIB were included in the meta-analysis. The overall incidence of OM was 3.61% among patients with ADC and 1.46% among patients with SCC (ADC vs SCC: OR 3.89, 95% CI 2.62-5.78; P < .001). Risk factors for OM were age >40 years (OR 1.79, 95% CI 1.02-3.13), bulky tumor (OR 2.65, 95% CI 1.77-3.95), pelvic lymph node involvement (PLNI; OR 9.33, 95% CI 6.34-13.73), lymphovascular space involvement (LVSI; OR 4.38, 95% CI 1.86-10.31), parametrial invasion (PMI; OR 7.87, 95% CI 5.01-12.36), and corpus uteri invasion (CUI; OR 7.64, 95% CI 2.51-23.24). PLNI, LVSI, and PMI were the leading risk factors, contributing to OM with respective population attributable fractions of 64.8%, 58.8%, and 51.5%. CONCLUSION: The incidence of OM is relatively low in ADC and SCC patients. Risk factors for OM include PLNI, LVSI, PMI, bulky tumor, CUI, or age over 40 years, with the first 3 contributing more to risk of OM.

RESUMO

Objective: To compare the short-term outcomes and long-term survivals of radical antegrade modular pancreatosplenectomy(RAMPS) and conventional distal pancreatectomy(CDP). Methods: A total of consecutive 304 patients including 176 male patients and 128 female patients who underwent RAMPS or CDP at Pancreas Center, the First Affiliated Hospital with Nanjing Medical University from May 2013 to June 2019 were retrospectively analyzed. The median age was 64.1 years old (range:39 to 85 years old). There were 101 patients underwent RAMPS and 203 patients underwent CDP. Measurement data with skewed distribution were presented as (M(Q(R))) and comparison between groups was evaluated with the Wilcoxon rank sum test. Count data were analyzed using the χ(2) test or Fisher exact probability. Survival analyses were performed by the Kaplan-Meier method after a one to one propensity score matching(PSM) conducted to balance several variables. Results: An eighty-one to eighty-one patients were enrolled after PSM. The overall morbidity was 32.1%(26/81)and there were no in-hospital mortalities in RAMPS. The median operative time was 225(95)minutes in RAMPS, not significantly longer as compared with CDP(210(130)minutes, P=0.916). The median greatest tumor diameter in RAMPS was 4.0(2.3)cm, not significantly larger as compared with CDP(4.5(2.2)cm, P=0.520).There were 34.6%(28/81)patients who presented with T4 tumors by 8(th) AJCC TNM staging system in RAMPS, which was not significantly different as compared with CDP(39.5%, χ(2)=0.574, P=0.902). The median number of examined lymph nodes was 9(9), not significantly greater in RAMPS as compared with CDP(10(11), P=0.992). The rate of negative posterior margins using 1 mm rule in RAMPS was 70.3%(52/74), significantly higher as compared with CDP(53.6%(30/56), χ(2)=3.817, P=0.044). The overall R0 resection rate was 44.6% (33/74) in RAMPS and 37.5% (21/56) in CDP, which was not significantly different(χ(2)=0.663, P=0.474). The median overall survival was 16.5 months for RAMPS, 25.2 months for CDP, and there was no statistical difference between two groups(P=0.981). The median overall survival was 16.0 months for patients with preoperative CA19-9≥300 U/ml who underwent RAMPS, 10.1 months for patients who underwent CDP, without significant difference(P=0.082). Conclusions: RAMPS can improve the rate of negative posterior margins by 1 mm rule and probably increase R0 resection rate and the harvest of lymph nodes. RAMPS may be beneficial to some patients with preoperative CA19-9≥300 U/ml.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Recent studies have shown an increase in the incidence of gastric cancer (GC) among young adults in Asia and Latin America. However, it is unknown if a similar trend is happening in the United States. METHODS: A retrospective review of the National Cancer Database was conducted to identify patients diagnosed with gastric adenocarcinoma between the years of 2004 and 2013. RESULTS: A total of 93 734 patients were included. The two age groups below 40 did not see a change in GC incidence; however, age groups above 40 had increasing incidence. Patients aged 18 to 25 had the largest proportion of stage 4 disease and a poor survival (median 11.5 months), compared to older patients. CONCLUSION: Despite the increasing trend of GC among individuals, the incidence of GC among young adults is not increasing. However, this subpopulation presents at more advanced stages (clinical stage 4) and thus has worse survival.

RESUMO

Objective: At present, recombinant TSH cannot be used for the treatment of metastatic differentiated thyroid cancer patients. The aim of this study was to evaluate if the type of TSH stimulation, recombinant or endogenous, had an impact on the outcome of these patients. Design and methods: We compared the outcome of two propensity score-matched groups of metastatic patients, stimulated by either only recombinant TSH (n = 43) or only endogenous TSH (n = 34). Results: As expected from the matching procedure, the clinical-pathological features and the cumulative 131-I activities administered to the two groups were very similar. After 4 years of follow-up, 4% of patients were cured, 3% had biochemical disease and 93% had structural disease. However, 91% of patients obtained a clinical benefit from this therapy in terms of stabilization of the disease or complete remission or partial response. When considering the two groups separately, we did not find any difference in their outcome. When considering the response to 131-I therapy of the single type of metastases, 8% of lymph node metastases and 8% of lung metastases disappeared but none of the bone metastases. The response to 131-I therapy of the single type of metastases was similar when we looked at the two groups separately. Conclusions: This study shows (i) an overall clinical benefit of the 131-I therapy, since the majority of patients remained affected but with a stable disease, and (ii) that the preparation with either recombinant or endogenous TSH has no impact on the 131-I therapy efficacy and the outcome of our two groups of patients.

RESUMO

Background: Currently, there are no European recommendations for the management of pediatric thyroid cancer. Other current international guidelines are not completely concordant. In addition, medical regulations differ between, for instance, the US and Europe. We aimed to develop new, easily accessible national recommendations for differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC) patients <18 years of age in the Netherlands as a first step toward a harmonized European Recommendation. Methods: A multidisciplinary working group was formed including pediatric and adult endocrinologists, a pediatric radiologist, a pathologist, endocrine surgeons, pediatric surgeons, pediatric oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians, a clinical geneticist and a patient representative. A systematic literature search was conducted for all existing guidelines and review articles for pediatric DTC from 2000 until February 2019. The Appraisal of Guidelines, Research and Evaluation (AGREE) instrument was used for assessing quality of the articles. All were compared to determine dis- and concordances. The American Thyroid Association (ATA) pediatric guideline 2015 was used as framework to develop specific Dutch recommendations. Discussion points based upon expert opinion and current treatment management of DTC in children in the Netherlands were identified and elaborated. Results: Based on the most recent evidence combined with expert opinion, a 2020 Dutch recommendation for pediatric DTC was written and published as an online interactive decision tree (www.oncoguide.nl). Conclusion: Pediatric DTC requires a multidisciplinary approach. The 2020 Dutch Pediatric DTC Recommendation can be used as a starting point for the development of a collaborative European recommendation for treatment of pediatric DTC.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Surgery for pancreatic cancer in Germany is increasing due to the climbing incidence of this cancer in the population. This review presents a summary of modern evidence-based indications for surgery in patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). METHODS: The German Society for General and Visceral Surgery (DGAV) authorised a task force to define evidence based indications for surgery in patients with PDAC. A systematic literature search in Medline and Cochrane Library databases (1989 - 2019) was performed. Recommendations were summarised on the basis of the most relevant and recent guidelines and clinical studies and then voted by members of the Working Group on Hepato-Biliary and Pancreatic Diseases (CALGP) in a Delphi procedure. RESULTS: Indications for surgery in patients with PDAC should be set by experienced pancreatic surgeons within a tumour board. Decisions should consider the guidelines as well as the individual patient characteristics. Large vessel infiltration, metastatic disease and severe comorbidities are the most common contraindications for surgery. Borderline-resectable, primary resectable oligometastatic and secondary resectable PDAC should be preferably managed at high-volume centres as a part of clinical studies. Centralisation of pancreatic surgery reduces mortality and improves survival. Palliative bypass surgery as well as staging laparoscopy are still indicated in a large proportion of patients with PDAC. CONCLUSION: Irrespective of the recent development of multimodal therapeutic concepts, surgical resection remains the sole chance of long-term cure for patients with PDAC. Due to the significant proportion of patients in advanced stages of the disease, palliative surgery still plays an important role in the complex management of this cancer.

RESUMO

A 55-year-old female with adenocarcinoma of anal canal(stage IV with lung, bone, and lymph node metastasis)underwent total pelvic exenteration surgery and chemotherapy. Chemotherapy was continued after the surgery. One month later, she presented to the emergency room with gait disorder and cognitive dysfunction. CT and MRI demonstrated metastatic brain tumor in the right cerebellar hemisphere. Craniotomy and CyberKnife surgery were performed. Histological examination revealed adenocarcinoma with atypical cells forming a papillary arrangement. She died 35 weeks after the surgery. Brain metastasis from anal carcinoma is very rare, but recent advances in chemotherapy are achieving favorable results of long-term survival, and this is likely to increase in the future. Early detection, early treatment, and combined therapy may improve the long-term outcome for patients.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: We aimed to determine whether tumor metabolism could be prognostic of cure in L-EAC patients who receive definitive chemoradiation. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Patients with inoperable localized esophageal adenocarcinoma (L-EAC) often receive definitive chemoradiation; however, biomarkers and/or imaging variables to prognosticate cure are missing. METHODS: Two hundred sixty-six patients with L-EAC who had chemoradiation but not surgery were analyzed from the prospectively maintained EAC databases in the Department of Gastrointestinal Medical Oncology at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center (Texas, USA) between March 2002 and April 2015. Maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) and total lesion glycolysis (TLG) from the positron emission tomography data were evaluated. RESULTS: Of 266 patients, 253 (95%) were men; the median age was 67 years (range 20-91 yrs) and 153 had poorly differentiated L-EAC. The median SUVmax was 10.3 (range 0-87) and the median TLG was 85.7 (range 0-3227). Both SUVmax and TLG were higher among those with: tumors >5 cm in length, high clinical stage, and high tumor and node categories by TNM staging (all P < 0.0001). Of 234 patients evaluable for cure, 60 (25.6%) achieved cure. In the multivariable logistic regression model, low TLG (but not low SUVmax) was associated with cure (continuous TLG value: odds ratio 0.70, 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.54-0.92). TLG was quantified into 4 quartile categorical variables; first quartile (Q1; <32), second quartile (Q2; 32.0-85.6), third quartile (Q3; 85.6-228.4), and fourth quartile (Q4; >228.4); the cure rate was only 10.3% in Q4 and 5.1% in Q3 but increased to 28.8% in Q2, and 58.6% in Q1. The cross-validation resulted in an average accuracy of prediction score of 0.81 (95% CI, 0.75-0.86). CONCLUSIONS: In this cross-validated model, 59% of patients in the 1st quartile were cured following definitive chemoradiation. Baseline TLG could be pursued as one of the tools for esophageal preservation.
