BACKGROUND: The use of implants is still the most common procedure for breast reconstruction because they are easy, less painful than tissue transplants, and do not need a donor site. However, it is challenging to find a suitable implant for patients with small breasts, and some women fear foreign bodies and possible complications or reoperations. Autologous breast reconstruction using the pedicled latissimus dorsi (LD) myocutaneous flap without an implant provides a good option for Asian women with small breasts...

INTRODUCTION: A large heterogeneous group of unproven remedies exist to treat cancer in both developed and developing countries. Some of these remedies often do more harm than good to the patients. The traditional medicine is the sum total of the knowledge, skills, and practices based on the theories, beliefs, and experiences indigenous to different cultures. The traditional medicine in Oman is based on herbal treatment and skin treatment (massage, Cupping and skin burn "cautery" treatment-known as Wasam or Kaiy)...

Because of the asymptomatic natural history of renal cell carcinoma (RCC), by the time a diagnosis is made, metastatic disease is present in about one third of the cases. Thus, the overall survival of patients with RCC remains poor. Ultimately up to 50% of patients with RCC will develop metastases. Metastatic lesions from RCC are usually observed in the lungs, liver or bone. Metastases to the brain or the skin from RCC are rare. Here we present a patient diagnosed with RCC, found to have no evidence of metastases at the time of nephrectomy, who presented two years later with metastases to the scalp...

BACKGROUND: Lung cancer rarely metastasizes to the breast, and breast metastasis of pulmonary pleomorphic carcinoma has not been previously reported. CASE PRESENTATION: The patient was a 66-year-old woman who became aware of a mass in the right breast and visited a physician. She was referred to our department for close examination, upon which she was diagnosed with double cancer (right breast cancer and left lung cancer). Needle biopsy findings for the mammary tumor were similar to those for the lung biopsy specimen, but spindle cell or metaplastic carcinoma were possibilities...

OBJECTIVE Image guidance for spinal procedures is based on 3D-fluoroscopy or CT, which provide poor visualization of soft tissues, including the spinal cord. To overcome this limitation, the authors developed a method to register intraoperative MRI (iMRI) of the spine into a neuronavigation system, allowing excellent visualization of the spinal cord. This novel technique improved the accuracy in the deployment of laser interstitial thermal therapy probes for the treatment of metastatic spinal cord compression...

BACKGROUND: Axillary lymph node dissection (ALND) has been the standard treatment of breast cancer axillary staging in Indonesia. The limited facilities of radioisotope tracer and isosulfan or patent blue dye (PBD) have been the major obstacles to perform sentinel node biopsy (SNB) in our country. We studied the application of 1% methylene blue dye (MBD) alone for SNB to overcome the problem. METHODS: This prospective study enrolled 108 patients with suspicious malignant lesions or breast cancer stages I-III...

INTRODUCTION: Leishmania (Viannia) braziliensis is the main etiological agent of tegumentary leishmaniasis in Americas. Parasite molecular diversity and host immune status contribute to extensive variances in its clinical presentation within endemic areas of Brazil. Pentavalent antimonials have been used for more than sixty years as the first line drug for all cases despite the potential for severe side effects and refractoriness. In Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, most L. (V.) braziliensis infections correspond to benign infections with scarcity of parasites, although metastasis and refractoriness can arise...

Background: Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is a relatively rare and aggressive cutaneous neuroendocrine malignancy characterized by high incidence of local recurrence, distant metastases, regional nodal metastases, and high mortality. Clinically, MCC presents as a persistent asymptomatic red/pink shaped nodule, usually smaller than 2 cm with nontender intracutaneous swelling, with rapidly growing localized disease with lymph node metastases preceding distant metastases. Because of its rare nature and the lack of comprehensive understanding of the disease, management of MCC has been controversial...

The risk of cancer is significantly increased in patients undergoing renal transplant surgery than in the general population. In particular, skin cancer is the most commonly occurring cancer in these patients.A 34-year-old man underwent living renal transplantation for focal segmental glomerulosclerosis. After 18 months, he developed a lesion on the nasal dorsum, approximately 1 cm in size, and the lesion rapidly expanded to cover the entire dorsum.Owing to its rapid expansion, the lesion was suspected to be a malignant tumor and wide excision was planned...

A woman in her 60s was admitted to our hospital with pain and induration of the navel. She was diagnosed with gastric cancer with metastasis to the navel and underwent total gastrectomy and navel extraction. Because disseminated nodules were detected in the Douglas pouch and sigmoid colon, sigmoidectomy was performed to prevent bowel obstruction. The navel tumor was histologically diagnosed as a metastasis of the gastric cancer. One month after surgery, a chest skin tumor, which was also a skin metastasis of the gastric cancer[T4aN3M1(SKI, OTH)H0P1, fStage IV ], was detected, and tumor enucleation was performed...

A 71-year-old-man was referred to our hospital because of jaundice of the skin. On biochemical examination of blood, we identified an elevation in the levels of AST and ALT, the serum level of biliary enzymes, and the serum levels of tumor markers. We found pancreatic head cancer with invasion to the main blood vessels and duodenum, with liver metastases, on abdominal CT. We made a diagnosis of unresectable advanced pancreatic head cancer with distant metastasis, and we initiated gemcitabine plus nab-paclitaxel therapy as first-line chemotherapy...

We report a case of severe skin metastases of advanced right breast cancer in an 84-year-old woman. The tumor (T4bN3cM0, Stage III C)was resected in June 2011(BT+AX)after blood transfusion for severe anemia. Radiotherapy to the right chest wall and supraclavicular lymph nodes was performed, and adjuvant hormonal therapy was administered. Local recurrences in the skin of the right chest wall appeared and were resected in December 2011. Nine months later, continuous bleeding from the progressed, widespread skin metastases needed recurrent blood transfusion...

Angiogenesis is regarded as an essential step in supporting tumour growth and metastasis. In haematological malignancies, including cutaneous T cell lymphoma (CTCL), angiogenesis is increased and serum levels of some pro-angiogenic markers are elevated. The aim of this study was to investigate expression levels of placental growth factor (PlGF) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-A in lesional skin and sera in patients with CTCL, and to assess the association of these factors with development of CTCL...

Collective cell migration is a hallmark of wound repair, cancer invasion and metastasis, immune responses, angiogenesis, and embryonic morphogenesis. Wound healing is a complex cellular and biochemical process necessary to restore structurally damaged tissue. It involves dynamic interactions and crosstalk between various cell types, interaction with extracellular matrix molecules, and regulated production of soluble mediators and cytokines. In cutaneous wound healing, skin cells migrate from the wound edges into the wound to restore skin integrity...

A 62-year-old HIV-positive man was admitted for multiple cutaneous and subcutaneous nodules on his lower limbs, corresponding to an undifferentiated proliferation of spindle and pleomorphic cells, with irregular nuclei and numerous mitoses. The tumor cells were negative for a large panel of immunohistochemical markers, except CD10. MDM2 immunohistochemical staining was also negative, leading to the diagnosis of FNCLCC grade III Undifferentiated Pleomorphic Sarcoma (UPS). aCGH showed a highly complex karyotype, with amplification of the 4q12 region, an area that contains only the PDGFRa gene...

Malignancy is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in organ transplant recipients who receive immunosuppression. Cancers associated with viruses such as nonmelanotic skin cancer and Kaposi sarcoma occur in allograft recipients at rates that far exceed that in the general population. The increased risk and tumor type may depend not only on degree of immune system modulation but also on the type of organ transplanted. In kidney transplant recipients, the risk of cancers such as prostate and breast does not seem to be increased...
