Breast Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma in a patient with Previous Contra-lateral Breast Ductal Carcinoma in-situ: A Case Report.

Chirurgia (Bucur) 2020 Jul-Aug;115(4):511-519

Breast adenoid cystic carcinoma (BACC) is a rarely encountered malignant breast neoplasm with a favourable outcome, despite its triple-negative receptor status. It is comprising less than 0.1% of all breast cancers. The more usual primary site of the adenoid cystic carcinoma is seen in the salivary glands, however BACC prognosis is better than the one for salivary gland and also than that of other breast invasive carcinoma. BACC also known to have fewer lymph node metastases as well as fewer distant metastases, hereby we present 73 years old female with previous history of breast ductal carcinoma in-situ, then developed contralateral breast adenoid cystic carcinoma.

The Challenge of COVID-19: The Biological Characteristics and Outcomes in a Series of 130 Breast Cancer Patients Operated on During the Pandemic.

Chirurgia (Bucur) 2020 Jul-Aug;115(4):458-468

The worldwide outbreak of the 2019 novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) emerged in Wuhan, China close to the end of 2019. We analyse the clinical characteristics and management outcomes of a small group of patients who have been treated in the early stage of the COVID-19 disease, and discuss the impact of the pandemic on the service delivered to breast cancer patients. Material We analysed a cohort of 130 breast cancer patients who underwent elective surgical procedures during the early period of COVID-19. The patients were operated on in the period from March 16th, 2020 to May 18th, 2020. All the patients were female, with an age range of 33-88 years, with a median age of 57.6 years. Most of the cases were admitted as a day case surgery after passing through a preoperative screening pathway, which was developed gradually. Patients were contacted by phone after their surgery to ensure that they have had no symptoms and were reviewed in person two weeks after the procedure with histology results. Only one patient developed COVID-19 symptoms after surgery and recovered. Early and careful implementation of modified practice policies during emerging situation of viral pandemics will reduce the risk of perioperative complications, reduce the risk of patient to staff to patient transmission and minimize the negative impact of COVID-19 on breast cancer management.

Colonic Goblet Cell Carcinoid: Rarity of a Rarity! A Case Report and Review of Literature.

Chirurgia (Bucur) 2020 Jan-Feb;115(1):102-111

Goblet cell carcinoids (GCC) are extremelyrare neuroendocrine tumours, and characterised by their unique combination of two types of cancer cells âÃÂ" neuroendocrine (carcinoid) and epithelial (adeno-carcinoma). In spite of the fact that GCC is regarded as Neuro-Endocrine Tumour (NET), it does not illicit carcinoid syndrome. GCC usually arises in the appendix and accounting for less than 14% of all appendiceal tumours.Primary extra-appendiceal GCC have been reported as stomach, duodenum, small intestine, colon and rectum. The paper presents a rare case of GCC of the ascending colon in a 57-year-old male.

Breast Metastasis as a Presentation of Malignant Melanoma.

Chirurgia (Bucur) 2018 Sept-Oct;113(5):712-718

The majority of malignant breast lesions are primary tumors originated from breast tissue. These primary breast cancers usually metastasize to lymph nodes, lungs, bones and brain. Metastases from cancers of other organs to the breast are very rare, but have been encountered in patients with malignant melanoma, carcinoid tumors or lung carcinoma. The present paper reports a case of mammary metastasis from malignant melanoma.
