Granular cell tumors involving the female reproductive tract are rare, with only a small number of cases described. Of the reported cases, none are documented within an ovarian mature cystic teratoma (MCT). This report documents a case of a granular cell tumor, incidentally discovered within an ovarian MCT in a 50-yr-old woman undergoing a supracervical hysterectomy and left salpingo-oophorectomy. Although malignant transformation and other secondary ovarian neoplasms in MCT have been well documented, synchronous nonovarian benign neoplasms are reported much less frequently...

Extrauterine spread of leiomyomas is rare and most commonly occurs in the lungs. We present a case of simultaneous metastatic leiomyomatosis to the lungs and peritoneal cavity following laparoscopic myomectomy with power morcellation. The patient presented to our institution for further management where she underwent a robotically assisted hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. Leiomyomatous implants measuring up to 2.4 cm were resected from bowel mesentery and bladder peritoneum. Subsequent serial computed tomography imaging confirmed stable pulmonary nodules without new intraperitoneal lesions...

INTRODUCTION: Recently, the opportunity to encounter lung metastasis from choriocarcinoma has become very rare for thoracic surgeons, since chemotherapy works very well and the operative indications for lung metastasis are limited. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 45-year-old woman with a past history of hydatidiform mole six years previously was found to have a nodulous chest shadow in the right middle lung field on a chest radiography. She was also suspected of having an ovarian tumor and underwent a total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy...

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC) occurs predominantly in postmenopausal women, suggesting a possible role of reproductive and hormonal factors in the pathophysiology of this condition. Yet reproductive characteristics of women with TC have received limited attention. This prospective case-control study sought to explore reproductive characteristics associated with TC. Incident TC cases and myocardial infarction (MI) controls were recruited among consecutive women presenting at the emergency departments of 2 large medical centers in Massachusetts and Connecticut...

PURPOSE: Pediatric surgeons often care for children with ovarian tumors. Few studies report long-term outcomes for these patients. This study characterizes intermediate-term results for patients who underwent surgical resection of ovarian neoplasms as children. METHODS: Patients who underwent surgery for ovarian neoplasms at a children's hospital were identified. They were invited to participate in a telephone-based survey assessing post-surgical recurrence, dysmenorrhea, quality of life, and fertility...

We herein experienced a case with pseudo-Meigs' syndrome that developed both synchronous and metachronous metastases to the ovary from ascending colon cancer. A 57-year-old female visited a hospital for a 2-month history of abdominal distension and voiding difficulty. Massive pleural effusion on the right side and a small amount of left-sided pleural effusion were detected on CT. She underwent emergent laparotomy due to the severe symptom of abdominal distention. The tumor originated from the left ovary, and left-sided oophorectomy was performed...

BACKGROUND: Mounting evidence suggests the fallopian tube as the origin for ovarian high grade serous carcinoma (HGSC). We attempted to identify the tubal cytological features that allow us to distinguish malignant from benign conditions. METHODS: Tubal specimens (n = 56) were collected from patients who underwent bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (BSO) due to various clinical indications. A standard procedure to collect fallopian tube brushings from freshly received surgical specimens was developed...

Adenosarcomas are rare malignancies of the female genital tract, accounting for approximately 5 % of uterine sarcomas. Occasionally, adenosarcoma occurs in the ovaries or in extra-uterine tissue, which may be related to endometriosis. These tumors are characterized by benign epithelial elements and a malignant mesenchymal component. Pathologic diagnosis is dependent on the identification of the characteristic morphologic features. The most common immunohistochemical markers for adenosarcoma are CD10 and WT1, but these are not specific...

Sentinel lymph node (SLN) mapping has increased its feasibility in both early stage cervical and endometrial cancer. There are few SLN studies regarding the ovary, because of the risk of tumor dissemination and perhaps because the ovary represents an inconvenient site for injection. In this preliminary study, we have shown the feasibility of SLN mapping of the ovary with Indocyanine green (ICG) during laparoscopic retroperitoneal aortic surgical staging. The ten women who were included in this study underwent aortic with pelvic laparoscopic staging, which included SLN biopsy, extrafascial total hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy in case of ovarian tumor...
