Pulmonary tumor thrombotic microangiopathy (PTTM) is a rapidly progressive and often fatal pulmonary disease induced by tumor emboli within the small pulmonary arteries. PTTM presents clinically as progressive hypoxia and pulmonary hypertension. Most cases of PTTM are caused by an adenocarcinoma of the stomach. We present the first case report of PTTM caused by cervical squamous cell carcinoma. An 82-year-old woman presented with vaginal bleeding and exertional dyspnea. A cervical mass biopsy showed squamous cell carcinoma...

Metastasis to the breast from an extra-mammary malignancy has been documented in literature, however cervical cancer metastasis to the breast is very rare. Thirty-eight cases of metastatic deposit to the breast from cervical cancer have been reported in literature. Though most patients present with a breast lump, it is very difficult to clinically distinguish a primary breast malignancy from a metastatic deposit. Histopathology of the tissue, aided with immune-histochemical staining pattern provides a definitive diagnosis...

Polyps of the lower reproductive tract are found in 7.8-50% of women. It has been hypothesized that cytogenetic modifications on chromosomes 6, 7 and 12 as well as epigenetic factors involving enzyme and metabolic activities may cause polyps to develop. Cervical polyps found in 2-5% of cases are of low clinical significance and can cause, although rarely, post coital bleedings. Cervical polyps grow during pregnancy and mucorrhoea. Trans vaginal ultrasound (TVU) provides an excellent diagnostic technique to diagnose the size and the anatomic location of endometrial polyps (EPs)...

Genital bleeding is the most common and serious complication in gynecologic malignancy. Different techniques are available for the control of severe bleeding, but standard treatment strategies have not been determined. Herein we report on the successful use of the balloon technique in two cases of genital bleeding in uterine neoplasm. The first case was of advanced cervical cancer with massive genital bleeding during radiotherapy. A metreurynter (mini-metro) was inserted into the vagina and hemostasis was indirectly achieved in the vaginal hematoma...

Clear cell adenocarcinoma of the cervix (CCAC) is a rare type of gynecological cancer. The risk factors and pathogenesis have yet to be clearly determined. This is a case report of a 19-year-old woman, who was never exposed to DES from her mother, who had gone for an examination for vaginal bleeding. A polypoid mass measured at 3 cm presenting in her cervix was discovered. Histological diagnosis following cervical biopsy proved the tumor to be a clear cell carcinoma. The patient was then referred to our hospital...
