Secondary tumors of the ovary account for 10-25% of all ovarian malignancies. The most common tumors that give rise to ovarian metastases include breast, colorectal, endometrial, stomach, and appendix cancer. The correct diagnosis of secondary ovarian tumors may be challenging as they are not infrequently misdiagnosed as primary ovarian cancer, particularly in the case of mucinous adenocarcinomas. The distinction from the latter is essential, as it requires different treatment. Immunohistochemistry plays an important role in distinguishing primary ovarian tumors from extra-ovarian metastases and, furthermore, may suggest the primary tumor site...

Malignant transformation of the fallopian tube mucosa, followed by exfoliation of malignant cells onto ovarian and/or peritoneal surfaces, has been implicated as the origin of most pelvic high-grade serous carcinoma. Whether a parallel pathway exists for pelvic low-grade serous tumors [ovarian serous borderline tumor (SBT) and low-grade serous carcinoma (LGSC)] remains to be fully elucidated. The literature is challenging to interpret due to variation in the diagnostic criteria and terminology for cytologically low-grade proliferations of the fallopian tube mucosa, as well as variation in fallopian tube specimen sampling...

A considerable number of mucinous ovarian tumors are metastatic from other primary tumors, mainly from the gastrointestinal tract, and primary mucinous ovarian tumors are considered rare. Mucinous ovarian tumors occurring within the clinical syndrome of pseudomyxoma peritonei are assumed to nearly always originate from the appendix. We describe a patient with a low-grade mucinous tumor involving the ovary in coexistence with pseudomyxoma peritonei, who underwent appendectomy 25 yr earlier. The tumor originated from a rare cystic gastrointestinal duplication found in the mesenteric fat showing adenomatous changes...

Krebs von den Lungen-6 (KL-6), a mucinous sialylated sugar chain on human mucin-1 glycoprotein (MUC1), is a diagnostic marker for interstitial lung diseases. Furthermore, elevated serum KL-6 levels have been observed in certain malignant tumor types of epithelial origin. The expression of MUC1 has been observed in patients with epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) and is considered a potential therapeutic target. In the present study, KL-6 serum levels were investigated in patients clinically suspected of having malignant ovarian tumors...

OBJECTIVE: Recent studies suggest that mucinous borderline ovarian tumors (MBOTs) belong to a high-risk group that is more likely to develop an invasive recurrence. The objective is to determine these risk factors. METHODS: A monocentric retrospective review of all consecutive patients with intestinal-type MBOT diagnosed between 1993 and 2013. All tumors were evaluated by one pathologist without knowledge of clinical outcome. Extensive surgical staging and pathological tumor sampling (1 block/cm diameter in tumors <10 cm and 2 blocks/cm diameter in tumors >10 cm) were performed in all cases...

INTRODUCTION: Mucinous tumors of the appendix are a rare pathology, with a prevalence below 0.5%. Clinical presentation usually occurs during the sixth decade of life, and mucinous tumors can clinically mimic acute appendicitis. The aim of this study is to describe the clinical and demographic variables, therapeutic procedure and diagnosis of these tumors. We analyze the association between mucinous tumors and pseudomyxoma peritonei (PP), as well as the association with colorectal and ovarian tumors...

OBJECTIVE: Genetic counseling (GC) and germline genetic testing (GT) for BRCA1 and BRCA2 are considered standard of care for patients with high-grade, non-mucinous epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, and primary peritoneal cancers (HGOC). We describe a universal genetic testing initiative to increase the rates of recommendation and acceptance of GC and GT to >80% for patients with HGOC at our institution. METHODS: Data from a consecutive cohort of patients seen in our gynecologic oncology clinics between 9/1/2012 and 8/31/2015 for evaluation of HGOC were retrospectively analyzed...

V-set and immunoglobulin domain containing 1 (VSIG1) is a newly discovered member of the immunoglobulin superfamily proteins, expressed in normal stomach and testis. In cancers, however, the clinical and biological roles of VSIG1 remain unknown. Here we investigated VSIG1 expression in 11 cancers and assessed the prognostic roles of VSIG1 in patients with gastric cancer (GC) (N = 362) and non-small-cell lung cancer (N = 650). VSIG1 was downregulated in 60.5% of GC specimens, and high VSIG1 expression was identified as an independent favorable prognostic factor for overall survival in GC patients (hazard ratio, 0...

Pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) is a rare disease that usually originates from mucinous neoplasms of the appendix and, less commonly, from extra-appendiceal tumors, but it may also be caused by synchronous primary mucinous tumors of the ovary and appendix. The current study discusses the case of a 73-year-old female who presented with progressively worsening indigestion and abdominal distension. Magnetic resonance imaging of the pelvis revealed a large cystic mass with a thin enhancing septa arising from the right ovary and ascites with scalloping of the liver surface...

Ovarian Sertoli-Leydig cell tumors (SLCTs) are uncommon neoplasms that are occasionally associated with an elevated level of serum alpha fetoprotein (AFP), a marker of germ cell neoplasms, particularly yolk sac tumor (YST). We report 7 cases of ovarian SLCT (3 moderately differentiated, 2 poorly differentiated, 2 retiform) with heterologous intestinal-type glands, 6 of which were associated with elevated serum AFP. The intestinal-type mucinous glands were immunoreactive for SALL4 (4 cases), AFP (4 cases), glypican 3 (1 case), CDX2 (6 cases), and villin (7 cases), markers that are commonly expressed in YSTs, although the latter 2 markers would be expected to be positive in intestinal-type glands...

OBJECTIVE: This study analyzed the relation of 5 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the VEGF (vascular endothelial growth factor) gene in patients with epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC), compared with patients carrying benign tumors or healthy ovaries. We studied serum VEGF levels and the relation with SNPs and association between VEGF SNPs and haplotypes with progression-free survival (PFS) in patients with cancer. METHODS: The genotyping of VEGF gene polymorphisms (-2578 C/A, -1154 G/A, -460 T/C, +405 G/C, +936 C/T) was performed in DNA isolated from blood samples of 100 women...

OBJECTIVES: To investigate whether elevated levels of CA125 (≥35 U/mL) and CA19-9 (≥37 U/mL) suggest advanced-stage disease (defined as stage II or higher) or poor prognosis in patients with borderline ovarian tumors (BOTs). STUDY DESIGN: We retrospectively identified 591 patients with BOTs. Multivariate logistic regressions and Cox proportional hazard regressions were used to determine the clinicopathologic factors associated with the presence of advanced-stage disease and the prognostic factors associated with recurrence-free survival...

There has been significant progress in the understanding of the pathology and molecular biology of rare ovarian cancers, which has helped both diagnosis and treatment. This paper provides an update on recent advances in the knowledge and treatment of rare ovarian cancers and identifies gaps that need to be addressed by further clinical research. The topics covered include: low-grade serous, mucinous, and clear cell carcinomas of the ovary. Given the molecular heterogeneity and the histopathological rarity of these ovarian cancers, the importance of designing adequately powered trials or finding statistically innovative ways to approach the treatment of these rare tumors has been emphasized...

OBJECTIVE: Ovarian needle aspiration and biopsy (ONAB) may be employed for pretreatment diagnosis of ovarian malignancies or intraoperatively to facilitate removal of ovarian masses. However, there is reluctance to utilize this procedure due to potential cyst rupture or seeding of malignant cells. The objective of this study was to examine the efficacy of ONAB over a 13-year period at our institution. METHODS: Between 2000 and 2013, all ONAB specimens were identified from the Queen's Medical Center Pathology Department database...

BACKGROUND: Peritoneal metastases (PM) occur in 3.4% to 6.3% after curative surgery for non-metastatic colorectal cancer. Systematic "2(nd) look" surgery help overcoming the diagnostic problem but can be only proposed to selected patients. The aim of this study was to update the knowledge on risk factors of developing PM after curative surgery for colorectal cancer. METHODS: A systematic review of the literature published between 2011 and 2016 was made, searching for all clinical studies reporting the incidence of recurrent PM after curative surgery for colorectal cancer and factors associated with the primary tumor that were likely to influence this recurrence rate...

BACKGROUND Low-grade appendiceal mucinous neoplasms (LAMNs) are cytologically low-grade tumors of the appendix and are a frequent cause of pseudomyxoma peritonei. They can become a diagnostic challenge when they metastasize to the ovaries, where they may mimic primary ovarian mucinous tumors. CASE REPORT We report the case of a patient with very large bilateral ovarian mucinous tumors and a concurrent minute LAMN incidentally discovered in a grossly normal appendix. A primary ovarian tumor was suspected, but histological analysis of the ovaries suggested an appendiceal origin...

Hereditary breast and ovarian carcinomas are frequently caused by germline mutations of the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes (BRCA1/2 syndromes) and are often less associated with other hereditary syndromes such as Li-Fraumeni and Peutz-Jeghers. The BRCA1/2 proteins have a special role in DNA repair. Therefore, loss of function due to mutation causes an accumulation of mutations in other genes and subsequent tumorigenesis at an early age. BRCA1/2 mutations are irregularly distributed over the length of the genes without hot spots, although special mutations are known...

Benign or malignant mural nodules rarely occur in mucinous tumors (MTs) of the ovary and malignant nodules can show mesenchymal or epithelial differentiation. The histogenesis of mural nodules is unclear and it has been suggested that these may evolve through divergent differentiation of the mucinous neoplasm or alternatively represent a collision phenomenon. To test these possibilities we compared the molecular profile of 7 ovarian MTs with their matched mural carcinomatous nodules (MCNs) by next-generation sequencing...

Epithelial ovarian tumors are a group of morphologically and genetically heterogeneous neoplasms. Based on differences in clinical phenotype and genetic background, ovarian neoplasms are classified as low-grade and high-grade tumor. Borderline ovarian tumors represent approximately 10%-20% of all epithelial ovarian masses. Various histological subtypes of ovarian malignancies differ in terms of their risk factor profiles, precursor lesions, clinical course, patterns of spread, molecular genetics, response to conventional chemotherapy, and prognosis...
