Synovial sarcomas (SSs) are very rare, poorly studied tumors that generally occurs around joint and muscle tendons. Primary SSs of the kidney are even rarer, accounting for <2% of all malignant renal tumors. We report the case of a 44-year-old man who was diagnosed with primary renal SS on the basis of imaging, histopathological, and immunohistochemical examination. We also present a comprehensive review of the literature, with a focus on the differential diagnosis and treatment of renal tumors.

Gallbladder adenomyomatosis (GAM) is an acquired, reactive, tumor-like condition. Malignant transformation is extremely rare, and imaging features during contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) have not been described before. Herein, we describe a 73-year-old Asian man who had been diagnosed with gallbladder carcinoma by conventional ultrasonography (US). Based on additional radiological findings, we believed that it was a localized adenomyomatosis. However, the histopathological diagnosis was adenocarcinoma originate from adenomyomatosis with serosal invasion...

For localized the incidence of renal cell carcinoma (RCC), nephrectomy is the standard treatment. As RCC is generally regarded as a radiation-resistant tumor, the value of postoperative adjuvant radiotherapy is controversial. However, with new advance in radiotherapy (i.e., three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy [3DCRT] and intensity-modulated radiation therapy [IMRT]), target volume delineation, intensity modulation in treatment planning, and treatment delivery are more accurate with fewer adverse effect...

Pulmonary inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is a rare mesenchymal tumor, and is considered an inflammatory pseudotumor. Here, we report of a 37-year-old woman with severe cough and stridor who was diagnosed with primary IMT of the lungs, with adenocarcinoma in situ based on the pathology in December 2012. A year later, transabdominal ultrasonography demonstrated a solid mass in the uterine wall that was initially diagnosed as a leiomyoma. However, postoperative histological examination and immunohistochemical staining revealed it as a uterine metastasis of the lung IMT...

To probe into the reasons for misdiagnoses of pelvic tumor as deep venous thromboses as well as the diagnostic methods and effective treatments on pelvic tumor. Four case reports on misdiagnosing pelvic tumor as deep venous thromboses and further analysis on the causes of misdiagnosis, diagnosis, and treatment with the literature study. The four cases were misdiagnosed as pelvic tumor, which actually were fibroneuroma, myxo.fluidity liposarcoma, moderately differentiated squamous cell carcinoma, and synovial sarcoma, respectively...

Objective: The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of Solanum nigrum polysaccharides (SNPs) on tumor growth in H22 hepatocarcinoma cells bearing mice and explore the mechanism by focusing on the regulation of the expression of caspase-3 and bcl-2. Materials and Methods: Totally, 50 mice bearing with H22 cells were randomly divided into five groups: Model group, cyclophosphamide group (CTX, 30 mg/kg), SNP groups with low, medium, and high doses of SNP (30, 60, and 120 mg/kg)...

Objectives: Studies have suggested that the crosstalk between estrogen receptor and ErbB receptor is involved in endocrine therapy (ET) resistance, which might be overcome by drugs-targeting ErbB receptor. However, the results of clinical studies remain controversial. The aim of this meta-analysis was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of ErbB (mainly epidermal growth factor receptor and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 [HER2]) inhibitors added to ET for hormone receptor-positive breast cancer patients...

Objective: The aim of the study was to investigate the application of nerve stimulator-guided thoracic paravertebral nerve block (TPVB) plus general anesthesia (GA) in small-incision lung cancer surgery. Methods: Forty patients scheduled for small-incision lung cancer surgery, the American Society of Anesthesiologists Grade I-II, were randomized into a TPVB-GA group (Group P) and a GA group (Group G), with 20 cases in each group. The dosage of general anesthetic, mean arterial pressure (MAP) at each time point, and heart rate (HR) of the two groups were recorded...

Aims: Some studies suggested that TOX high mobility group box family member 3 (TOX3) rs3803662 polymorphism was associated with the risk of breast cancer. However, the results were controversy. Therefore, in order to derive a more comprehensive estimation of the association between TOX3 rs3803662 polymorphism and breast cancer risk, we conducted a meta-analysis to investigate this relationship. Materials and Methods: An electronic literature search was conducted using the following database: PubMed, EMBASE, and China National Knowledge Infrastructure till to March 31, 2015...

Purpose: Numerous studies have confirmed that brain tumor patients and their family members frequently exhibit negative emotional reactions, such as anxiety and depression, during diagnosis and treatment of the disease. Family members experience increasing pressure as the year of survival of patient progress. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of the continued psychological care (CPC) toward the brain tumor patients and their family members' emotions. Subjects and Methods: The asynchronous clinical control trial was performed, and 162 brain tumor patients and their family members were divided into the control group and the intervention group...
