Recurrent GLI1 gene fusions have been recently described in a subset of soft tissue tumors showing a distinct monotonous epithelioid morphology with a rich capillary network and frequent S100 protein expression. Three different fusion partners-ACTB, MALAT1, and PTCH1-have been reported with the PTCH1-GLI1 fusion from 2 patients only, both with head and neck tumors. Herein, we report for the first time a PTCH1-GLI1 fusion in a primary ovarian tumor from a female patient aged 54 years who presented with a 21-cm right ovarian mass and mesenteric metastasis.

Background: The use of stereotactic radiotherapy (SBRT) for oligometastases is supported by several literature studies, but in the setting of gynecological malignancies, this scenario remains quite unexplored. This study reports a preliminary assessment of clinical outcomes in a cohort of 40 patients with oligometastatic gynecological neoplasms.Methods: Radiotherapy was delivered in 3-10 fractions with VMAT-IGRT technique.

Study Question: What is the relationship between mitochondria of granulosa cells (GCs) and age and ovarian function in the patients under the POSEIDON classification?Summary Answer: Our results revealed obvious abnormal mitochondrial-related changes in low prognosis IVF population, where age and the function of ovarian reserve exerted a divergent effect on mitochondrial content and function.What Is Known Already: Mitochondria have an important role in the cross-talk between GCs and oocytes. However, factors affecting mitochondria of GCs and related mechanisms are still poorly understood. Read More
