The case presented is a 25-year-old male with a malignant neuroectodermal tumour on the left chest wall (Askin tumour), treated with surgery after neoadyuvant chemotherapy and followed by consolidation chemotherapy. After 9 years of disease free survival, the patient developed an acute pulmonary embolism. The echocardiogram, thoracic CT, and cardiac MRI scans revealed a mass in the right atrium. Recurrence of an Askin tumour versus an atrium myxoma was suspected. 18 F-FDG PET/CT showed an intense hypermetabolic right atrium mass with extension to the right ventricle highly suggestive of malignancy...

BACKGROUND: It has been postulated in the Asian literature that a low prognostic nutritional index (OI) could be associated with a higher rate of complications following radical gastric cancer surgery, but there is a lack of data concerning western countries. The aim is to analyze the relationship between a low preoperative OI and the frequency and severity of surgical complications in R0 gastric cancer resection. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In the present article, 124 cases of gastric cancer with R0 resection were reviewed...

Neoadjuvant chemotherapy is an accepted strategy for patients with locally advanced breast cáncer. This approach increases the possibilities of conservative treatment and improves the resectability rates of initially unresectable tumors. In addition, preoperative systemic therapy allows the evaluation of prognostic and predictive factors, dynamically and in vivo. Since over 80% of these tumors express estrogen receptors (ER), endocrine therapy seems a logical treatment to employ in the neoadjuvant setting...

BACKGROUND: Previous studies demonstrated that Letrozole (aromatase inhibitor) and tamoxifen (selective modulator of estrogen receptors) are effective in the treatment of postmenopausal women with locally advanced tumors, stage III and hormone dependent. OBJECTIVE: To present display the complete clinical answer incidence and the complete pathological answer with the use of induction hormonotherapy. METHODS: Put-analysis in 40 patients with breast cancer, to chanalicular infiltrated, eligible were treated in a prospective study, to double blind person, using per os: letrozol, 2...

Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is a soft tissue neoplasm of intermediate malignancy that is initially localized to the skin from where it can invade deep structures (fat, fascia, muscle and bone). It is the most frequent fibrohistiocytic tumor, comprising approximately 1.8 % of all soft tissue sarcomas and 0.1 % of all cancers. It has an estimated incidence of 0.8-5 cases per one million persons per year. Treatment of localized disease consists in complete surgical excision of the lesion by conventional surgery with wide margins (>3 cm) or by micrographic Mohs surgery...

OBJECTIVE: We report a new case of bladder leiomyosarcoma in a young female patient. We review its features and different treatment options. METHODS: The patient underwent neoadyuvant chemotherapy and surgical excision. RESULTS: A partial response was achieved with neoadyuvant chemotherapy and remains still alive 60 moths after radical cystectomy CONCLUSION: Despite the poor prognosis of this disease, multimodal treatment may improve results...

Radiation therapy is the usual treatment for nasopharyngeal carcinoma. However, in recent years the use of neoadyuvant chemotherapy in the treatment of local and regionally advanced carcinoma has been investigated. We report the results of a retrospective study of two treatments used in our center. The study included 68 patients: 34 (group A) who received radiotherapy alone and 34 (group B) who received neoadyuvant chemotherapy before radiotherapy. In group A, 70.6% achieved a complete clinical response: 23...
