BACKGROUND: Chemotherapy is considered the most appropriate treatment for metastatic uterine sarcoma, despite its limited efficacy. No other treatment has been conclusively proved to be a real alternative, but some reports suggest that anti-hormonal therapy could be active in a small subset of patients. We report the case of a patient with metastatic uterine carcinosarcoma with positive hormonal receptors and a complete pathological response. CASE PRESENTATION: A 54-year-old white woman presented to our emergency room with hypovolemic shock and serious vaginal bleeding...

BACKGROUND: Invasive mole is responsible for most cases of localized gestational trophoblastic neoplasia. Gestational trophoblastic disease describes a number of gynecologic tumors that originate in trophoblastic layer including hydatidiform mole (complete or partial), invasive mole, choriocarcinoma, placental site trophoblastic tumor and epitheloid trophoblastic tumor. Invasive mole may arise from any pregnancy event although in most cases is diagnosed after molar pregnancy. Overall cure rate in low risk patients is nearly 100% and in high-risk patient 90%...

Laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy (LSH) is an example of a partial hysterectomy, performed due to benign gynaecological complaints. Better endoscopic instruments and operational techniques have led to a great reduction in the number of abdominal hysterectomies. It is believed that LSH is a safe and minimally invasive hysterectomy technique. The Cochrane Database meta-analysis proves the benefits of minimally invasive surgery compared with abdominal gynaecological surgery, including decreased pain, surgical-site infections and hospital stay, quicker return to activity, and fewer postoperative adhesions...

We report a case of a 72-year-old woman who was initially diagnosed with ovarian cancer with peritoneal carcinomatosis. Systemic chemotherapy consisting of paclitaxel and carboplatin(TC)was administered. Although a partial response(PR)was achieved after the 4 courses of TC, this regimen was discontinued due to severe adverse events. Ten months after discontinuation of TC, because abdominal CT and colonoscopy showed an intra-tumoral abscess caused by invasion of the tumor to the sigmoid colon, abdominal total hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, and a Hartmann's operation were performed to control the disease symptoms...

A 65-year-old woman who was diagnosed with unresectable Stage IV sigmoid colon cancer underwent transverse colostomy with double orifices. Although KRAS gene mutation was observed, we could not administer bevacizumab because of the risk of bleeding from the primary tumor and peritumoral abscess. We started bi-weekly XELOX therapy but bloody bowel discharge continued. We planned extended resection of the primary tumor in order to control the bleeding and perforation. Sigmoidectomy, partial resection of the left ureter and small intestine, partial hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, and umbilical tumor resection were performed and the patient was discharged on the 10th day after surgery...

Robotic-assisted surgery is a technological advancement that facilitates the application of minimally invasive techniques for complex operations in gynecologic oncology. The objective of this article was to review the literature regarding the role of robotic-assisted surgery to treat women with gynecologic cancers. The majority of publications on robotic surgery are still retrospective or descriptive in nature; however, the data for managing patients with a robotic-assisted approach show comparable, and at times improved, outcomes compared with both laparoscopy (2-dimensional) and laparotomy approaches...

INTRODUCTION: Lynch syndrome is the most common form of hereditary colorectal cancer, being also responsible for endometrial and other types of cancers. It is associated with germline mutations in DNA mismatch repair genes and microsatellite instability. MLH1 and MSH2 mutations have a "classical" Lynch syndrome phenotype, with MSH2 having a higher association with extracolonic cancer. MSH6 and PMS2 mutations have an atypical phenotype. Clinical expression is heterogeneous, with correlation between mismatch repair mutated gene and phenotypic patterns...
