Unusual Imaging Findings Associated with Germ Cell Tumors.

Radiographics 2019 Jul-Aug;39(4):1019-1035. Epub 2019 May 24.

From the Departments of Radiology (K.M., M.M.H.) and Pathology (J.W.C.), Brigham and Women's Hospital, 75 Francis St, Boston, MA 02115; Department of Radiology, Mayo Clinic Scottsdale, Scottsdale, Ariz (C.O.M.); Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, Washington University School of Medicine, St Louis, Mo (S.B.); and Department of Radiology, University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio, Tex (V.S.K.).

Germ cell tumors, because they contain immature and mature elements, can differentiate into different tissue types. They can exhibit unusual imaging features or manifest in a syndromic fashion. The authors describe these features and assign them to one of the following categories: unusual manifestations of metastatic disease (growing teratoma syndrome, choriocarcinoma syndrome, ossified metastases, and gliomatosis peritonei); autoimmune manifestations (sarcoidlike reaction and paraneoplastic syndromes); endocrine syndromes (sex hormone production, struma ovarii, and struma carcinoid); or miscellaneous conditions (ruptured dermoid cyst, squamous cell carcinoma arising from a mature teratoma, Currarino triad, fetus in fetu, pseudo-Meigs syndrome, and pancreatitis).

Pseudo-pseudo Meigs' syndrome presenting with a combination of polyserositis, elevated serum CA 125 in systemic lupus erythematosus: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Apr;98(17):e15393

Department of Hematology & Oncology, Beijing Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Clinical Medical College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Capital Medical University, Beijing, China.

Rationale: Combination of polyserositis and elevated serum CA 125 is common in tumor or infectious disease, but this clinical combination is also found in other diseases. It could be the initial manifestation of pseudo-pseudo Meigs' syndrome (PPMS), which is characterized by the presence of polyserositis and raised CA-125 level in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).

Patient's Concerns: A 44-year-old Chinese female was admitted with three months history of painless abdominal distension accompanied by watery diarrhea 5-6 times daily, shortness of breath, fatigue, lower limb swelling, and 10 kg weight loss. Read More

The Great Mimicker: Pseudo-Meig Syndrome in a Pregnant Patient. A Review.

Ultrasound Q 2018 Mar;34(1):23-28

Meig syndrome is the triad of benign ovarian tumor, ascites, and pleural effusion. Pseudo-Meig syndrome mimics the Meig syndrome triad; however, in pseudo-Meig syndrome, the ovarian tumor usually represents a primary malignancy or metastases. Differentiating Meig from pseudo-Meig syndrome is challenging both clinically and with diagnostic imaging but is important because prognoses for these distinct entities are drastically different.

The monodermal teratoma is a rare ovarian tumour; however, presenting with pseudo-Meigs' syndrome and raised cancer antigen (CA)-125 levels is even rarer. In elderly patients, this presentation can potentially lead to a misdiagnosis of a malignant ovarian carcinoma, resulting in unnecessary extensive surgery. We report a 55-year-old female who presented to the Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan Hospital, New Delhi, India, in 2016 with progressive abdominal discomfort, fatigue and abdominal distention.

The use of laparoscopic rectopexy to manage rectal prolapse with Pseudo-Meigs' syndrome in a 64-year-old female: a case report.

Clin Case Rep 2017 05 29;5(5):642-644. Epub 2017 Mar 29.

Department of Surgery Keio University School of Medicine Tokyo Japan.

We report a rare case of rectal prolapse with Pseudo-Meigs' syndrome in which laparoscopic bilateral oophorectomy and rectopexy were performed simultaneously and resulted in improved quality of life due to the loss of ascites and the repair of rectal prolapse. Laparoscopic surgery is feasible for rectal prolapse with Pseudo-Meigs' syndrome. Read More

Three Cases of Pseudo-Meigs' Syndrome Secondary to Ovarian Metastases from Colorectal Cancer.

Case Rep Surg 2017 8;2017:5235368. Epub 2017 Mar 8.

Department of Gastroenterological Surgery, Shinshu University School of Medicine, Matsumoto, Japan.

Pseudo-Meigs' syndrome is used to describe cases of ascites and/or pleural effusion associated with ovarian neoplasms other than benign tumors, which improve after removal of the ovarian lesion. We present three cases of pseudo-Meigs' syndrome secondary to ovarian metastasis from colorectal cancer. In case 1, the patient has severe dyspnea and hypoxia due to massive right pleural effusion; therefore preoperative thoracic drainage was needed. Read More

Long-term survival in pseudo-Meigs' syndrome caused by ovarian metastases from colon cancer.

World J Surg Oncol 2016 Nov 14;14(1):286. Epub 2016 Nov 14.

Division of Digestive and General Surgery, Niigata University Graduate School of Medical and Dental Sciences, 1-757 Asahimachi-dori, Chuo-ku, Niigata, 951-8510, Japan.

Background: Meigs' syndrome is defined as the co-existence of benign ovarian fibroma or fibroma-like tumor, ascites, and pleural effusion. In contrast, pseudo-Meigs' syndrome is defined as the co-existence of other ovarian or pelvic tumors, ascites, and pleural effusion. In Meigs' and pseudo-Meigs' syndromes, ascites and pleural effusion resolve promptly after the complete resection of the ovarian or pelvic tumor(s). Read More

Gliomatosis peritonei with bilateral ovarian teratomas: A report of two cases.

Oncol Lett 2016 Sep 15;12(3):2078-2080. Epub 2016 Jul 15.

Department of Pathology, The Second Affiliated Hospital, Zhejiang University School of Medicine, Hangzhou, Zhejiang 310009, P.R. China.

Gliomatosis peritonei (GP) is characterized by the presence of benign, mature neuroglial implants throughout the peritoneum and is typically accompanied by mature or immature ovarian teratomas. GP is a condition that has only been described relatively recently, with ~100 cases reported in the English literature. The majority of reported cases have focused on the pathology and clinical treatment of the disease; radiological findings are distinct, but the discussion of this is scarce in the literature.
