The Challenge of Evaluating Adnexal Masses in Patients With Breast Cancer.

Clin Breast Cancer 2018 08 12;18(4):e587-e594. Epub 2018 Mar 12.

Instituto Nacional de Câncer (INCA), Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Electronic address:

This narrative literature review addresses the problem of an adnexal mass discovered during the course of breast cancer (BC) care, which may represent a benign condition, a metastatic process, or a primary ovarian cancer (OC), clinical scenarios associated with distinct physiopathology and prognosis. Furthermore, the coexistence of BC and OC in the same patient may be owing to a hereditary disorder, deserving specific management strategies and counseling. The initial detection and evaluation of an adnexal mass in a patient with BC requires a high index of suspicion, and the initial workup should include a thorough medical history and physical examination, measurement of tumor markers, complete blood count, and imaging tests.

Solid tumors of the peritoneum, omentum, and mesentery in children: radiologic-pathologic correlation: from the radiologic pathology archives.

Radiographics 2015 Mar-Apr;35(2):521-46

From the Department of Radiology and Radiological Sciences (E.M.C.) and Department of Pathology (J.T.S.), F. Edward Hébert School of Medicine, Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, 4301 Jones Bridge Rd, Bethesda, MD 20814; Department of Radiology, Pediatric Radiology Section, American Institute for Radiologic Pathology, Silver Spring, Md (E.M.C.); Department of Radiology, David Grant USAF Medical Center, Travis AFB, Calif (D.M.B.); and F. Edward Hébert School of Medicine, Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, Bethesda, Md (A.M.A., J.T.M.).

Intraperitoneal solid tumors are far less common in children than in adults, and the histologic spectrum of neoplasms of the peritoneum and its specialized folds in young patients differs from that in older patients. Localized masses may be caused by inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor, Castleman disease, mesenteric fibromatosis, or other mesenchymal masses. Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor is a mesenchymal tumor of borderline biologic potential that appears as a solitary circumscribed mass, possibly with central calcification. Read More

Primary cystic peritoneal masses and mimickers: spectrum of diseases with pathologic correlation.

Abdom Imaging 2015 Apr;40(4):875-906

Joint Department of Medical Imaging, University Health Network - Mount Sinai Hospital - Women's College Hospital, University of Toronto, 585 University Avenue, Toronto, ON, M5G 2N2, Canada.

Cystic lesions within the peritoneum have been classified classically according to their lining on histology into four categories-endothelial, epithelial, mesothelial, and others (germ cell tumors, sex cord gonadal stromal tumors, cystic mesenchymal tumors, fibrous wall tumors, and infectious cystic peritoneal lesions). In this article, we will proceed to classify cystic peritoneal lesions focusing on the degree of radiological complexity into three categories-simple cystic, mildly complex, and cystic with solid component lesions. Many intra-abdominal collections within the peritoneal cavity such as abscess, seroma, biloma, urinoma, or lymphocele may mimic primary peritoneal cystic masses and need to be differentiated.

High-throughput sequencing of T-cell receptors reveals a homogeneous repertoire of tumour-infiltrating lymphocytes in ovarian cancer.

J Pathol 2013 Dec;231(4):433-440

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle, WA.

The cellular adaptive immune system mounts a response to many solid tumours mediated by tumour-infiltrating T lymphocytes (TILs). Basic measurements of these TILs, including total count, show promise as prognostic markers for a variety of cancers, including ovarian and colorectal. In addition, recent therapeutic advances are thought to exploit this immune response to effectively fight melanoma, with promising studies showing efficacy in additional cancers. Read More
