Female Wolffian adnexal tumor (WAT) is a rare neoplasm arising from the remnants of the mesonephric duct and <100 cases have been reported globally. The present case report describes a 73-year-old female patient with WAT in the left ovary which, to the best of our knowledge, is the largest benign WAT tumor to be reported. In addition, the present case report reviewed previous studies on the clinical characteristics and therapy for WAT and the surgery methods for female WAT of ovary were summarized. WATs are typically benign; however, a number factors may increase the risk of malignancy...

Ovarian cancer is most lethal among gynaecological cancers with often fatal consequences due to lack of effective bio-markers and relapse which propels ovarian cancer research into unique directions to establish solid targeted therapeutics. 'Ovarian stem cells' expressing germline, pluripotent markers serve as novel paradigm with potential to address infertility, menopause and probably influence tumor initiation. Cancer stem cells (CSCs) pose vital role in tumor recurrence and hence it is extremely important to study them with respect to ovarian stem cells across various cancer stages and normal ovaries...

RATIONALE: Adnexal torsion is 1 of the most common emergency gynecological disease. It is more often diagnosed in reproductive age, but rarely in postmenopausal women. The clinical symptoms of adnexal torsion are nonspecific in postmenopausal women. Epithelial ovarian tumors are common in adults, and the risk of malignancy increases with age, especially after menopause. So, it is difficult to diagnose adnexal torsion precisely compared with reproductive women, and most cases of adnexal torsion with postmenopausal women are diagnosed as a malignancy preoperatively...

A sclerosing stromal tumor is a very rare benign sex cord-stromal tumor of the ovary. Because its clinical presentation and imaging findings are similar to those of borderline or malignant epithelial tumors and other sex cord-stromal tumors, accurate preoperative clinical diagnosis can be difficult. The aim of this study was to analyze the clinicopathological characteristics of SSTs and examine the immunohistochemical expression TFE3, which has not been studied in SSTs. Our study cohort consisted of 9 patients diagnosed as having SST; the median age was 36 years...

Ovarian neoplasms are a heterogeneous group of tumors with varying incidence in the general population. The most common are the surface epithelial tumors which include transitional cell tumors. Transitional cell tumors include both transitional cell carcinoma and Brenner tumor. The vast majority of Brenner tumors are benign, often incidental findings; however, malignant Brenner tumors (MBT) do occasionally occur. MBT present similarly to other ovarian neoplasms with abdominal pain and bulk symptoms. On imaging, these tumors demonstrate nonspecific findings...

Ovarian masses requiring surgical intervention are uncommon in the pediatric population. Our aim is to report results of a multicentric Tunisian study concerning the clinical practice and the management of pediatric ovarian masses and to identify the factors that are associated with ovarian preservation. Between January 2000 and December 2015, 98 pediatric patients (<14 years) were surgically treated for ovarian masses at the five pediatric surgery departments in Tunisia. Ninety-eight patients were included in this study...

Conventional methods for histopathologic tissue diagnosis are labor- and time-intensive and can delay decision-making during diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. We report the development of an automated and biocompatible handheld mass spectrometry device for rapid and nondestructive diagnosis of human cancer tissues. The device, named MasSpec Pen, enables controlled and automated delivery of a discrete water droplet to a tissue surface for efficient extraction of biomolecules. We used the MasSpec Pen for ex vivo molecular analysis of 20 human cancer thin tissue sections and 253 human patient tissue samples including normal and cancerous tissues from breast, lung, thyroid, and ovary...

The giant ovarian serous cystadenoma is a rare finding and often benign. The use of the laparoscopic approach versus open approach for the management of huge ovarian cysts is controversial. We report a case of a 27-year-old woman with a history of increasing abdominal girth over a period of two years along with radiological investigations revealed a large tumor arising from the right ovary treated by complete laparoscopic extirpation of a giant ovarian cyst. The complete laparoscopic approach for huge cyst is a feasible treatment when having a normal tumor marker profile and benign imaging appearance...

Ovarian cancer is a major cause of cancer death among women worldwide, and particularly in Israel. Although the disease at stage IA has 5 year survival rates of over 90%, early detection methods are not sufficiently accurate. Consequently, ovarian cancer is typically diagnosed late, which results in high fatality rates. An excellent candidate for early ovarian cancer detection would be in vivo magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) because it is non-invasive and free of ionizing radiation. In addition, it potentially identifies metabolic features of cancer...

BACKGROUND: There is no universal screening method for discrimination between benign and malignant adnexal masses yet. Various authors have tried tumor markers, imaging studies, cytology but no one yet is a definite method for screening of cancer ovary, for which a combined diagnostic modality has come to practice in form of RMI. With this background we conducted our study "Evaluation of risk malignancy index and its diagnostic value in patients with adnexal masses". METHODS: The aim of the study was to determine the effectiveness of risk of malignancy index (RMI-3) in preoperative discrimination between benign and malignant masses and also to reveal the most suitable cut off value...

Adenomatoid tumors (ATs) are rare, benign neoplasms occurring mainly in reproductive organs such as the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and testes. Uterine adenomatoid tumors (UATs) are generally incidentally diagnosed during histopathological examination of excisional biopsies performed for other indications, most commonly uterine leiomyomas. We herein present a 38-year-old woman who underwent laparoscopic excision of a uterine leiomyoma and a right ovarian teratoma. Microscopic examination of the excisional biopsy revealed that the enucleated uterine tumor was composed of proliferating glandular tissue covered with single-layered cells that were surrounded by proliferating smooth muscle cells, corresponding exactly to the features of UATs...

Although most female adnexal tumors of probable Wolffian origin have a benign biologic behavior, occasional cases have exhibited malignant potential. We encountered a 50-yr-old woman with an uncommon female adnexal tumors of probable Wolffian origin, which involved bilateral ovaries, invaded the ipsilateral fallopian tube, and extended to the uterine serosa. The initial histopathologic presentation caused significant confusion in pathologic diagnosis. Multiple differential diagnoses including ovarian endometrioid carcinoma, Sertoli cell tumor, and metastasis from nongynecologic organs were considered...

Malignant transformation of the fallopian tube mucosa, followed by exfoliation of malignant cells onto ovarian and/or peritoneal surfaces, has been implicated as the origin of most pelvic high-grade serous carcinoma. Whether a parallel pathway exists for pelvic low-grade serous tumors [ovarian serous borderline tumor (SBT) and low-grade serous carcinoma (LGSC)] remains to be fully elucidated. The literature is challenging to interpret due to variation in the diagnostic criteria and terminology for cytologically low-grade proliferations of the fallopian tube mucosa, as well as variation in fallopian tube specimen sampling...

Recent studies suggest that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) play crucial roles in many types of human malignant cancers. However, the function of lncRNAs in benign tumors remains poorly understood. In the present study, to explored the potential roles of lncRNAs in benign epithelial ovarian cysts (BEOCs) which commonly occur in young women and possess malignant potential, we described the expression profile of the lncRNAs between BEOC and normal ovarian tissues using lncRNA microarray techniques. The results showed that 1,325 transcripts of lncRNAs (1,014 upregulated and 311 downregulated) were differentially expressed in the BEOCs compared with the normal controls [absolute fold-change ≥2, false discovery rate (FDR) <0...
