Spindle cell hemangioma (SCH) is a unique benign vascular lesion. We present a case of SCH in the upper lip of a 41-year-old woman. A submucosal nodular mass 30 × 20 mm in size was observed in the left upper lip. The mass developed 5 years earlier and enlarged after repeated ethanol injections. The mass was elastic firm, mobile, bluish in color, and well demarcated in magnetic resonance imaging. Under the clinical diagnosis of hemangioma, surgical excision was performed under local anesthesia. Microscopically, the lesion was composed of irregular cavernous spaces and multiple solid cellular areas...

Myoid angioendothelioma are rare and benign vascular tumours of the spleen. Radiographic evaluation and diagnosis is often challenging and subjecting tissue samples to immuhistochemical analysis is often required to make a definitive diagnosis. Myoidangioendotheliomas can be managed with open or laparoscopic splenectomy with minimal risk of recurrent disease. Herein, we present a case of a myoid angioendothelioma in a patient with stage IV Wilms' tumour.

BACKGROUND: Countries rely on out-of-pocket (OOP) spending to different degrees and employ varying techniques. The article examines trends in OOP spending in ten high-income countries since 2000, and analyzes their relationship to self-assessed barriers to accessing health care services. The countries are Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States. METHODS: Data from three sources are employed: OECD statistics, the Commonwealth Fund survey of individuals in each of ten countries, and country-specific documents on health care policies...

Peritoneal fibrosis is a common complication of abdominal and pelvic surgery, and can also be triggered by peritoneal dialysis, resulting in treatment failure. In these settings, fibrosis is driven by activated myofibroblasts that are considered to be partly derived by mesothelial-to-mesenchymal transition (MMT). We hypothesised that if the molecular signature of MMT could be better defined, these insights could be exploited to block this pathological cellular transition. Rat peritoneal mesothelial cells were purified, using an antibody to HBME1, a protein present on mesothelial cell microvilli, and streptavidin nanobead technology...

Background: Portal hypertension is a major complication of liver cirrhosis. Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt is effective in treatment of portal hypertension. However, decreased parenchymal portal venous flow after transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt insertion favours ischaemic liver injury which has been discussed to induce hepatocarcinogenesis causing hepatocellular cancer. Aim: This study aimed to explore the association between transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt placement and the development of hepatocellular cancer...

BACKGROUND: Sequencing-based analyses of low-biomass samples are known to be prone to misinterpretation due to the potential presence of contaminating molecules derived from laboratory reagents and environments. DNA contamination has been previously reported, yet contamination with RNA is usually considered to be very unlikely due to its inherent instability. Small RNAs (sRNAs) identified in tissues and bodily fluids, such as blood plasma, have implications for physiology and pathology, and therefore the potential to act as disease biomarkers...

Overexpressed Wilms' Tumor 1 (WT1) gene is informative in many patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and is measurable in peripheral blood (PB). Despite these advantages WT1 has not broadly been established as marker for minimal residual disease (MRD) monitoring after allogeneic transplantation (allo-HSCT) due to limited patient numbers, differing sample sources and non-standardized in-house methods. To estimate its value as MRD marker we serially quantified PB WT1 expression using a standardized European Leukemia Net-certified assay in 59 patients with AML and MDS after allo-HSCT...

REVIEW
Gergely Buglyó, Dániel Beyer, Sándor Biró, Éva Oláh
Hypospadias is one of the most frequent congenital anomalies of the male external genitalia. Its pathogenesis is due to largely unknown or poorly understood genetic factors and is further complicated by environmental-intrauterine-risk factors. One of the genes currently in focus by molecular biologists and clinicians studying syndromic forms of hypospadias is the Wilms' tumour 1 (WT1) gene. There is controversy over whether WT1 defects are also responsible for isolated hypospadias. In this review, we briefly cover the role of WT1 as a transcription factor and discuss proposed pathogenic pathways leading to hypospadias, outlining possible directions for research...

BACKGROUND: One approach to boost influenza vaccination coverage has been to expand immunization authority. In 2012, the province of Ontario gave community pharmacists the authority to administer the influenza vaccine. OBJECTIVE: This study investigates the perspectives of Ontario pharmacy patrons, who had not recently received this vaccine from a pharmacist, regarding this pharmacist service. METHODS: A survey was administered in six Ontario community pharmacies to pharmacy patrons who had not received an influenza vaccination from a pharmacist during the previous year...

The survival rates associated with Wilms tumour (WT) remain dismal despite advancements in detection and treatment strategies. Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are correlated with the initiation, recurrence and metastasis of tumours, but its impact on Wilms cancer stem cell (WCSC) maintenance remains unclear. In this study, CD133+ cells were successfully isolated from a single-cell suspension of the G401 Wilms tumour cell line using magnetic activated cell sorting (MACS). Signal transducers and activators of transcription 3 (STAT3) has been implicated in tumorigenesis, but its contribution to the metastatic progression of WCSCs has not been investigated...

BACKGROUND: Patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) with poor glycaemic control can represent a challenge from the perspective of the general practitioner (GP). Apart from patient-sided factors, the understanding of GPs' attitudes may provide ideas for improved management in these patients. The aim of this study is to reveal attitudes of GPs towards T2DM patients with poor metabolic control. METHODS: Qualitative research in German general practice; 20 GPs, randomly chosen from participants of a larger study; in-depth narrative interviews, audio-recorded and transcribed; inductive coding and categorisation in a multi-professional team; abstraction of major themes in terms of attitudinal responses...

Background/aim: Insulin-like growth factor-1 receptor (IGF-1R) is a pivotal receptor tyrosine kinase involved in the cell cycle and malignant tumor transformation. It is differentially expressed in various types of tumors. We aimed to determine the expression of IGF- 1R in different pediatric tumors and to shed light on possible new indications of anti-IGF-1R treatment approaches. Materials and methods: A total of 147 specimens were analyzed according to their expression of IGF-1R. Specimens included those from rhabdomyosarcomas, Wilms tumors, Ewing sarcoma/primitive neuroectodermal tumors, peripheral neuroblastic tumors, acute lymphoblastic lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma, Burkitt lymphoma, retinoblastoma, pleuropulmonary blastoma, Langerhans cell histiocytosis, endodermal sinus tumors (ESTs), and myeloid sarcoma...

The Wilms tumor suppressor gene (Wt1) encodes a transcription factor involved in the development of a number of organs, but the role played by Wt1 in pancreatic development is unknown. The pancreas contains a population of pancreatic stellate cells (PSC) very important for pancreatic physiology. We described elsewhere that hepatic stellate cells originate from the WT1-expressing liver mesothelium. Thus, we checked if the origin of PSCs was similar. WT1 is expressed in the pancreatic mesothelium. Between E10...

BACKGROUND: To reduce long-term morbidity (adhesions-related complications and impaired quality of life due to scars), laparoscopy has been used as an alternative to open surgery in Wilms tumours (WTs). However, concerns have been raised on the risk of local recurrence after this type of resection. OBJECTIVE: The aim was to determine the incidence of local recurrence after laparoscopic transperitoneal radical nephrectomy (LTRN). STUDY DESIGN: We analysed 18 local cases and conducted a review of the English literature in Pubmed from 2004 to 2017 with the following keywords: (Wilms OR nephroblastoma) AND (laparoscopy OR minimally invasive surgery) AND 2004:3000...

We present a case of bilateral multifocal Wilms tumor in a non-syndromic 12 month old male. Our management approach included twelve weeks of preoperative chemotherapy for maximal tumor shrinkage and, despite the central location of the tumors, successful staged bilateral nephron-sparing surgery. We advocate for a broader application of nephron-sparing surgery in Wilms tumor cases with the goal of preserving renal function without compromising oncologic outcomes.
