Hidradenocarcinoma (HAC) is a rare adenexal tumor with a propensity for the head and neck region and extremities. We report a case of hidradenocarcinnoma in a 56-year-old woman with a mass on her right palm sampled by fine-needle aspiration and later confirmed on histological examination. Fine-needle aspiration cytology revealed a dual population of cells including polyhedral eosinophilic cells and glycogen containing cells with pale/clear cytoplasm. The nuclei were pleomorphic with prominent nucleoli. Occassional papillary structures were identified on the cell block material...

Strumal carcinoid develops in a germ cell tumor characterized by an intimate mixture of thyroid and carcinoid. Unlike other carcinoid tumors, most patients with strumal carcinoid have no symptoms of carcinoid syndrome; few are reported to cause severe constipation. We report a case of a 60-year-old female patient presenting with severe progressive constipation and painful defecation for last few years. A right ovarian tumor was discovered during clinical examination. CT scan revealed a large lobulated solid cystic right adenexal mass suggestive of monomorphic teratoma, which was successfully removed surgically...

BACKGROUND: Risk of malignancy index (RMI) is the best method for discriminating benign and malignant pelvic masses. The aim of this study was to determine the RMI for preoperative evaluation of pelvic mass. METHODS: This study was performed on 182 women with adenexal mass referred to Yahyahnejiad Hospital of Babol University of Medical Sciences in Iran from 2007 to 2009.The sensitivity, specificity, positive (PPV) and negative predictive values (NPV) of menopausal status, ultrasound finding of pelvic mass and level of serum CA-125, separately or combined into the RMI were calculated and compared...

Syringocystadenocarcinoma papilliferum (SCACP) is a rare adenexal carcinoma with only 21 cases reported in the literature. Most patients describe a long-standing mass with recent change, supporting the idea that SCACP arises from malignant transformation of pre-existing syringocystadenoma papilliferum (SCAP). Syringocystadenocarcinoma papilliferum is generally treated with wide surgical excision of the lesion and patients do exceeding well and require no systemic therapy.

Leydig stromal cell tumor is a rare ovarian tumor that belongs to the group of sex-cord stromal tumors. They produce testosterone leading to hyperandrogenism. We present a 41yr old woman with symptoms of virilization and a mass of right adenex via ultra Sonography, and a rise of total and free serum testosterone. An ovarian source of androgen was suspected and a surgery performed. A diagnosis of leydig-stromal cell tumor was confirmed. Our report is a reminder that although idiopathic hirsutism and other benign androgen excess disorder like Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOs) are common, ovarian mass should be considered in differential diagnosis...

Ultrasonography of 56 women with adenexal masses who were admitted for laparotomy were done mainly by transvaginal route. Though Gray scale morphologic evaluations of masses were done routinely, only colour Doppler imaging criteria were taken into consideration in this study. These are pulsatility index (PI), resistance index (RI), peak systolic velocity (PSV), timed average maximal velocity (TAMXV), vessels localisation and dicrotic notch. Histopathological examination was done and considered as gold standard...

Myotonic dystrophy (dystrophia myotonica, DM) is a chronic, slowly progressing, highly variable inherited multisystemic disease that can manifest at any age from birth to old age. We present a 32-year-old female with adenexal mass posted for exploratory laparotomy. She was a known case of dilated cardiomyopathy (DCMP).The ECG suggested incomplete RBBB & LAHB & the ECHO revealed mild mitral regurgitation, tricuspid regurgitation, pulmonary artery hypertension with severe left ventricular dysfunction (ejection fraction of 30-35%)...

Endometriotic foci, especially ovarian ones, with epithelial cytologic atypia may be precursors of cancer. This study presents an overview of the atypical cytological and histopathological findings associated with endometriosis. Six cases of endometriosis, with atypical histological and cytological changes, were obtained from the archives of the Department of Pathology at Cleveland Clinic Foundation between year 2000 and 2003. The size of the base from which these cases were drawn was 2000 cases of endometriosis...

INTRODUCTION: Steroid cell tumors of the ovary account for less than 0.1% of all ovarian tumors 1 and these tumours may present at any age in association with interesting presentations related to the hormonal activity and virilizing properties of tumor. Hayes and Scully 2 reported 63 cases in patients ranging from 2 to 80 years of age. The subtype, not otherwise specified, is associated with androgenic changes in approximately one half of patients with this tumour 1. In a series of 63 cases from Massachusetts General Hospital, 94% of the tumors were found to be unilateral and 28...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic management of nonobstetric acute abdominal pain during pregnancy remains controversial. A gestational age of 26 to 28 weeks has been considered the upper limit for laparoscopy by some authors. A case series of nonobstetric surgery in advanced pregnancy is reported. METHODS: Third-trimester patients who underwent surgery between 1997 and 2006 were reviewed. RESULTS: Laparoscopic surgery was performed for nonobstetric emergencies during the third trimester for 11 patients...

Meigs' syndrome is a rare clinical condition commonly considered to be associated with malignant ovarian tumour. A case of unmarried female is presented who came with a slowly increasing abdominal mass. Clinical and ultrasonic investigations revealed a mobile, solid right adenexal tumour in the lower abdomen, along with ascites and pleural effusion of the right lung. The level of CA 125 was also raised. Diagnosis of Meigs' syndrome was confirmed after surgical intervention. The tumour was successfully removed and pleural effusion disappeared 15 days after the intervention...

Mural nodules associated with mucinous and serous tumors of the ovary may represent a reactive process, a benign tumor, or a malignant neoplasm. Mural leiomyomatous nodule in mucinous cystadenoma is extremely rare. Two such cases had been described previously. In this case a 43-year-old white female presented with 24-h history of left quadrant pain and a left adenexal cystic mass on ultrasound examination. An exploratory laparotomy revealed a left ovarian mass with torsion on its pedicle. Frozen section of the cystic mass showed a mucinous cystadenoma with mural smooth muscle proliferation...

A case of endometriosis with myxoid change is presented here which raised concern for metastatic adenocarcinoma and pseudomyxoma peritonei. This is the second case similar to the one described previously in the literature. A 51-year-old woman underwent repair for an umbilical hernia. The tissue sections of the hernia specimen contained isolated pools of mucin surrounded focally by cuboidal-type epithelium. Subsequent CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis revealed a large right adenexal mass. These clinicopathologic findings raised strong suspicion for adenocarcinoma and pseudomyxoma peritonei...

Chlamydia trachomatis is a well-known cause of acute and chronic salpingitis, accounting for approximately half of all cases of pelvic inflammatory disease. Typically, patients with acute chlamydial salpingitis present with acute lower abdominal pain, tenderness on bimanual pelvic examination, or vaginal discharge. We describe a case of acute chlamydial salpingitis with marked ascites and an adnexal mass that simulated a malignant neoplasm. Microscopically, a severe lymphofollicular salpingitis and a marked lymphofollicular hyperplasia of the omentum and retroperitoneal lymph nodes were found...
