    Inguinal lymph node presenting as the delayed site of metastasis in early stage endometrial carcinoma: Case report.
    Int J Surg Case Rep 2017 Jan 19;32:12-15. Epub 2017 Jan 19.
    Radiation Oncology, Comprehensive Cancer Center, King Fahad Medical City, Riyadh, 59046, Saudi Arabia. Electronic address:
    Introduction: Inguinal lymph nodes are the frequent sites of metastasis for malignant lymphoma, squamous cell carcinoma of anal canal, vulva and penis, malignant melanoma and squamous cell carcinoma of skin over lower extremities or trunk. Anatomically, endometrial carcinoma is less likely to spread to the superficial or deep inguinal lymph nodes, thus metastatic involvement of these lymph nodes can easily be overlooked.

    Case Presentation: Here-in we report a case of a 65-year old Saudi morbid obese female, who presented with left inguinal lymphadenopathy as initial delayed site of metastasis almost 19 months after the initial treatment for FIGO IA endometrial carcinoma. Read More

    Role of the Common Fragile Sites in Cancers with a Human Papillomavirus Etiology.
    Cytogenet Genome Res 2017 Feb 1. Epub 2017 Feb 1.
    Division of Experimental Pathology, Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, USA.
    High-risk human papillomaviruses (HPVs) are known to be associated with different anogenital cancers including cervical, anal, penile, and vaginal cancers. They are also found to be responsible for the dramatic increases in oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OPSCC) observed in the United States and Europe. The model for how high-risk HPVs induce cancer formation comes from studies of cervical cancer which usually involves integration of the HPV into the human genome and subsequent changes due to induced chromosomal instability.
