Int J Surg Case Rep 2021 Aug 26;85:106245. Epub 2021 Jul 26.

Colorectal Research Center, Shiraz University of Medical Sciences, Shiraz, Iran. Electronic address:

Introduction And Importance: Synovial cell sarcoma (SS) is an extremely rare mesenchymal malignancy, representing nearly 10% of all soft-tissue sarcomas. These high-grade soft tissue sarcomas commonly arise in the para-articular regions of lower extremities. However, 15% of Synovial sarcomas has been described at Unusual locations, including head, neck, and trunk. Herein, we describe the twelfth case of primary synovial cell sarcoma of thyroid with a literature review.

Case Presentation: A 43-year-old woman presented with complaint of a progressive neck mass for the last five-months. She developed with dysphagia and dyspnea nearly 2 months prior, without signs of hoarseness, and weight loss. Ultrasonography in which revealed a heterogeneous, hypervascularized thyroid mass. After total thyroidectomy immunohistochemistry was in favor of primary synovial cell sarcoma of thyroid. The diagnosis was confirmed via Molecular genetic analysis of the SYT-SSX fusion gene transcript using the RT- polymerase chain reaction method. Clinical Discussion: Primary thyroid SVS is an extremely rare malignancy with poor biological behavior. SVS has been known for its tendency to local and distal re-occurrence after a few years of treatment. SS can be classified into two subtypes of monophasic or biphasic based on the presence of mesenchymal and/or epithelial components. Accordingly, the most accurate diagnostic tool for SS is considered to be molecular genetic analysis for SYT/SSX fusion transcript.

Conclusion: Herein, we reported an extremely rare case of SVS of thyroid gland. These high-grade soft tissue sarcomas mainly present with an asymptomatic rapid growing neck mass. Unspecific clinical presentations and extreme rarity of this disorder, make the diagnosis of thyroid SVS very challenging. Due to paucity of data, there is not enough evidence to establish a reliable mortality rate. However, the prognosis of thyroid SVS seems unfavorable.

Trend in Prevalence of Hepatitis B Virus Infection Among Blood Donor Individuals: An Eleven-year of Experience in Lorestan, Iran.

Int J Prev Med 2020 26;11:178. Epub 2020 Nov 26.

Blood Transfusion Research Center, High Institute for Research and Education in Transfusion Medicine, Tehran, Iran.

Background: Hepatitis B virus is one of the transfusion transmissible infections. Despite the availability of hepatitis B virus (HBV) vaccine and screening tests but still danger of virus transmission via blood transfusion is high in some regions. The objective of this study was to determine the trend of seroprevalence of hepatitis B in over an 11-year period (2005-2015).

Methods: In this study, 355,083 blood donors were estimated for hepatitis B surface antigen (HBs Ag) seropositivity during 2005-2015 who referred to blood infusion centers of Lorestan province. Third-generation ELISA method was used to detect HBs Ag.

Results: The prevalence of HBs Ag in blood donors was 0.29% (1017). It was decreased steadily from 2005 to 2015 (0.68% to 0.12%) but increased in 2008 year. The trend prevalence of HBs Ag seropositivity significantly decreased over the study period ( < 0.001). The decline in HBV infection rates was more prominent in regular and repeated donor's groups compared to people who donated blood for the first time ( < 0.001).

Conclusions: The result of present study was indicated, Lorestan city in west of Iran can be classified as a low-income region because the low prevalence of HBs Ag in blood donors. Also the prevalence of HBs Ag in first-time donors was higher than other groups.

When transcripts matter: delineating between non-syndromic hearing loss DFNB32 and hearing impairment infertile male syndrome (HIIMS).

J Hum Genet 2020 Jul 30;65(7):609-617. Epub 2020 Mar 30.

Genetics Research Center, University of Social Welfare and Rehabilitation Sciences, Tehran, Iran.

Mutations in the CDC14A (Cell Division-Cycle 14A) gene, which encodes a conserved dual-specificity protein tyrosine phosphatase, have been identified as a cause of autosomal recessive non-syndromic hearing loss (DFNB32) and hearing impairment infertility male syndrome (HIIMS). We used next-generation sequencing to screen six deaf probands from six families segregating sensorineural moderate-to-profound hearing loss. Data analysis and variant prioritization were completed using a custom bioinformatics pipeline. We identified three homozygous loss of function variants (p.Arg345Ter, p.Arg376Ter, and p.Ala451Thrfs*43) in the CDC14A gene, segregating with deafness in each family. Of the six families, four segregated the p.Arg376Ter mutation, one family segregated the p.Arg345Ter mutation and one family segregated a novel frameshift (p.Ala451Thrfs*43) mutation. In-depth phenotyping of affected individuals ruled out secondary syndromic findings. This study implicates the p.Arg376Ter mutation might be as a founder mutation in the Iranian population. It also provides the first semen analysis for deaf males carrying mutations in exon 11 of CDC14A and reveals a genotype-phenotype correlation that delineates between DFNB32 and HIIMS. The clinical results from affected males suggest the NM_033313.2 transcript alone is sufficient for proper male fertility, but not for proper auditory function. We conclude that DFNB32 is a distinct phenotypic entity in males.

SLC52A2 mutations cause SCABD2 phenotype: A second report.

Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol 2018 Jan 20;104:195-199. Epub 2017 Nov 20.

Genetics Research Center, University of Social Welfare and Rehabilitation Sciences, Tehran, Iran. Electronic address:

Introduction: Autosomal recessive cerebellar ataxias (ARCAs) are a large group of neurodegenerative disorders that manifest mainly in children and young adults. Most ARCAs are heterogeneous with respect to age at onset, severity of disease progression, and frequency of extracerebellar and systemic signs.

Methods: The phenotype of a consanguineous Iranian family was characterized using clinical testing and pedigree analysis. Whole-exome sequencing was used to identify the disease-causing gene in this family.

Results And Conclusion: Using whole exome sequencing (WES), a novel missense mutation in SLC52A2 gene is reported in a consanguineous Iranian family with progressive severe hearing loss, optic atrophy and ataxia. This is the second report of the genotype-phenotype correlation between this syndrome named spinocerebellar ataxia with blindness and deafness type 2 (SCABD2) and SLC52A2 gene.

Comparison of the Expression of Cell Adhesion Molecule Markers (E-Cadherin and Syndecan-1) between Young and Older Age Patients with Gastric Carcinoma.

J Gastrointest Cancer 2010 Sep;41(3):193-6

Transplant Research Center, Shiraz University of Medical Sciences, Shiraz, Iran.

Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between age and cell adhesion molecule markers (E-cadherin and syndecan-1).

Materials And Methods: Forty-three cases of gastric carcinoma below the age of 50 were referred to our center in the period of 5 years (2003–2008). Forty-three gastric carcinoma above the age of 50 years were sex-matched with the first group. Expression of syndecan-1 and E-cadherin were evaluated by immunohistochemistry in a total of 86 gastric carcinomas accompanying with all the clinicopathological findings in each case.

Results: The expression of syndecan-1 and E-cadherin did not show significant difference between two age groups; in addition, there were no significant differences in all the clinicopathological findings in these two age groups.

Discussion: Gastric carcinoma in young and old age adults showed no significant difference in respect of the expression of cell adhesion molecule markers. Our result shows that young age alone cannot be predictive of more metastasis and invasion potential.
