A 30-year-old Chinese woman with irregular vaginal bleeding was admitted to our department. Serum β-human chorionic gonadotropin (β-hCG) was moderately elevated, and ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging revealed an irregular, retro-uterine lesion without intrauterine pregnancy. Ectopic pregnancy was the primary consideration, with trophoblastic tumor being another possibility. Laparoscopy revealed a 2 × 3 × 3 cm3 irregular, infiltrating, yellow-white lesion in the left recto-uterine pouch, which was completely resected without rectal damage...

PURPOSE: The risk of ovarian failure after radiotherapy and/or chemotherapy is a concern among oncologic women. There is no doubt regarding the psycho-emotional benefits of fertility preservation (FP) after a cancer diagnosis because concerns about biological conception are a source of anxiety and can even affect the patient's cancer recovery. The aim of this study was to evaluate oncology patients' feelings, concerns, and life quality impacts related to FP. METHODS: This qualitative cross-sectional study was based on a questionnaire administered to a selected group of women diagnosed with cancer who underwent FP...

REVIEW
Jiannis Vlachogiannakos, George V Papatheodoridis
As current treatment options almost never achieve eradication of hepatitis B virus (HBV), the most realistic goal for HBV treatment is persistent inhibition of viral replication and ALT normalization. Thus, the decision to start treatment should be based on careful patient selection and individualized decisions. Treatment is generally indicated in chronic hepatitis B patients with HBV DNA >2000 IU/mL, elevated ALT and/or at least moderate histological lesions, while all patients with cirrhosis and detectable HBV DNA should be treated...

Ovarian malignancies are rare in pregnancy; however, the incidence of abnormal adnexal masses diagnosed during pregnancy is increasing. The most common masses are ovarian cysts, and only 3-6% of those are malignant. The majority of ovarian masses are diagnosed at an early stage by routine ultrasound examinations. Malignant germ cell tumors are the most common ovarian malignancies associated with pregnancy, while the incidence of epithelial ovarian cancer is only 1:12,000-1:50,000 of pregnancies. The diagnosis and management of ovarian cancer during pregnancy remain unclear due to the rare occurrence and scant data on this condition...

BACKGROUND: Awareness is growing that cancer can be treated during pregnancy, but the effect of this change on maternal and neonatal outcomes is unknown. The International Network on Cancer, Infertility and Pregnancy (INCIP) registers the incidence and maternal, obstetric, oncological, and neonatal outcomes of cancer occurring during pregnancy. We aimed to describe the oncological management and obstetric and neonatal outcomes of patients registered in INCIP and treated in the past 20 years, and assess associations between cancer type or treatment modality and obstetric and neonatal outcomes...

RATIONALE: Gestational trophoblastic neoplasia is a group of rare tumors that can be cured using chemotherapy. The use of artificial contraception for at least 1 year is recommended not only due to the high recurrence rate in the first year after treatment, but also because of the unclear genetic toxic effects of multidrug regimen chemotherapy on reproductive cells. There is no consensus about the contraception duration, but most patients want to have children. PATIENT CONCERNS: This case involved a 33-year-old female suffering from gestational trophoblastic neoplasia and 5-fluorouracil + actinomycin-D chemotherapy...

Newly diagnosed cancer in pregnancy is an issue with increasing importance, because fulfilling the wish to have a child is shifted later in life. Tumour disease is diagnosed in around 0.1% of all pregnancies in Germany. Most common tumour entities involve the breast, the cervix and the hematopoietic system. As tumour prognosis is not negatively affected by pregnancy and gestation does not disclude oncologic therapy it is important to plan treatment immediately. Oncologic surgery preserving the uterus is not at all limited...

RATIONALE: Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) occurs primarily in pediatric population, or secondary to malignancy, infection, or autoimmune disease. This disease is rare and prognosis is generally poor. Only a small number of cases during pregnancy have been reported in literature. PATIENT CONCERNS: We report a case of pregnancy-associated HLH secondary to natural killer (NK)/T cells lymphoma. She was admitted at 30 weeks and 3 days of pregnancy with complaints of abdominal pain and fever as high as 39...

Cell-free DNA (cfDNA) is present in various body fluids and originates mostly from blood cells. In specific conditions, circulating cfDNA might be derived from tumours, donor organs after transplantation or from the foetus during pregnancy. The analysis of cfDNA is mainly used for genetic analyses of the source tissue -tumour, foetus or for the early detection of graft rejection. It might serve also as a nonspecific biomarker of tissue damage in critical care medicine. In kidney diseases, cfDNA increases during haemodialysis and indicates cell damage...

The current report describes a case of extragenital gestational choriocarcinoma in the kidney. A 36-year-old woman with a history of two deliveries of male babies visited the present hospital due to secondary amenorrhea following a positive urinary pregnancy test. Despite a high serum level of human chorionic gonadotropin, at 51,800 mIU/ml, diagnostic imaging methods and pathological examination did not detect any conceptus in the genital tract. Positron emission tomography-computed tomography detected 18F-FDG-positive tumors in the left kidney and right lung...

Gestational choriocarcinomas are very rare malignancies, with only few cases being reported so far. Moreover, the presence of pelvic recurrences after surgically-treated gestational choriocarcinomas is even scarcer situations. We present the case of a 19-year-old patient who was initially submitted to surgery with preoperative diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy. At that moment a left salpingectomy was performed, and the histopathological studies revealed the presence of a left tubal gestational choriocarcinoma...

BACKGROUND: Malignant ovarian germ cell tumor is a rare type of disease, which generally has a good prognosis due to the high chemosensitivity of this type of tumor. Fertility preservation is an important issue because malignant ovarian germ cell tumor commonly affects young women. Although conservation is the standard for early stage, it becomes more debatable as the disease progresses to more advanced stages. AIM: Report the case of a patient with an International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics Stage IIIc malignant ovarian germ cell tumor, who had conservative surgery and chemotherapy with a good fertility outcome...

The incidence of colorectal cancer in pregnancy is between 0.002 and 0.008%. Diagnosis is often delayed as symptoms of colorectal cancer can mimic as common complaints of pregnancy. We present the case of a 29-year-old with a history of chronic constipation who presented in the second trimester with abdominal pain, inability to tolerate anything orally and no bowel movement in more than three weeks. Non-contrast MRI at presentation failed to show an obstructing mass. Patient was treated conservatively for presumed pseudo-obstruction secondary to worsening constipation from chronic ondansetron use and pregnancy...

Ensuring quality of life for increasing numbers of women surviving cancer has become a key challenge. Patients need to be counseled on potential fertility loss resulting from gonadotoxic treatments, and referred to fertility specialists to discuss existing options and available results. Areas covered: Fertility preservation options have existed for over twenty years. The proposed fertility preservation approach depends on patient age, the urgency of required chemotherapy, and psychosocial factors such as financial concerns, especially in countries where techniques are not covered by social security...
