A multi-disciplinary approach to the management of intra-venous and intra-cardiac leiomymatosis: A case report.

J Pak Med Assoc 2022 Jun;72(6):1214-1217

Department of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery, Rehman Medical Institute, Peshawar, Pakistan.

We herein report a rare presentation of leiomyoma in a 46-year-old female who presented with complaints of shortness of breath on exertion associated with palpitations for the past one year with a history of irregular menstrual bleeding. Ultrasonography of the abdomen and pelvis revealed an enlarged, distorted uterus with multiple intramural fibroids. A trans-thoracic echocardiography was then performed which showed a large right atrial mass. Read More

Ultrasound-Guided Trans-Uterine Cavity Core Needle Biopsy of Uterine Myometrial Tumors to Differentiate Sarcoma from a Benign Lesion-Description of the Method and Review of the Literature.

Diagnostics (Basel) 2022 May 29;12(6). Epub 2022 May 29.

Department of Surgical Oncology, Institut Curie, University of Paris, 26 Rue d'Ulm, CEDEX 05, 75248 Paris, France.

Uterine sarcomas are rare, aggressive tumors with poor prognosis that can be further negatively affected by inadequate surgical approaches such as morcellation. There are no clinical and radiologic criteria for differentiating leiomyoma from malignant uterine tumors. However, some ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging findings may be informative.

Natural History of Asymptomatic Esophageal Subepithelial Tumors of 30 mm or Less in Size.

J Korean Med Sci 2022 Jun 13;37(23):e184. Epub 2022 Jun 13.

Department of Gastroenterology, Asan Medical Center, University of Ulsan College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Background: No definite guidelines for the management of small esophageal subepithelial tumors (SETs) have been established, because there are limited data and studies on their natural history. We aimed to assess the natural history and propose optimal management strategies for small esophageal SETs.

Methods: Patients diagnosed as esophageal SETs ≤ 30 mm in size between 2003 and 2017 using endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) with a minimal follow-up of 3 months were enrolled, and their esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) and EUS were retrospectively reviewed. Read More

Department of Surgery, University of Texas Health Science Center, UT Health East Texas, Tyler, TX, USA.

Ascites, pelvic mass and elevated CA-125 in females carry a grim prognosis, likely an ovarian carcinoma. However, more benign etiologies such as Meigs' and pseudo-Meigs' syndrome must be considered. Pseudo-Meigs' syndrome presenting with an elevated CA-125 is rare and presents a diagnostic challenge. Read More

PET Imaging of Estrogen Receptors for Gynecological Tumors.

Clin Nucl Med 2022 Jul 12;47(7):e481-e488. Epub 2022 May 12.

From the Biomedical Imaging Research Center.

Abstract: In the past few decades, PET with 18F-FDG has been used for the diagnosis of gynecological malignancies and is considered to be superior to conventional imaging methods in diagnostic accuracy for detecting metastatic lesions and local recurrence and in evaluating the treatment response. On the other hand, several gynecological tumors, such as endometrial cancer and leiomyoma, and breast cancer are estrogen-dependent, in which estrogen is essential for their development and progression. 18F-FES is an 18F-labeled compound of estradiol, the most bioactive type of estrogen, and 18F-FES PET has been well-established for diagnosis, staging, and posttherapeutic follow-up in patients with estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer.

Multicenter Evaluation of Tissue Classification by Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization Mass Spectrometry Imaging.

Anal Chem 2022 Jun 6;94(23):8194-8201. Epub 2022 Jun 6.

Institute of Pathology, School of Medicine, Technical University of Munich, Trogerstrasse 18, 81675 München, Germany.

Many studies have demonstrated that tissue phenotyping (tissue typing) based on mass spectrometric imaging data is possible; however, comprehensive studies assessing variation and classifier transferability are largely lacking. This study evaluated the generalization of tissue classification based on Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization (MALDI) mass spectrometric imaging (MSI) across measurements performed at different sites. Sections of a tissue microarray (TMA) consisting of different formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded (FFPE) human tissue samples from different tumor entities (leiomyoma, seminoma, mantle cell lymphoma, melanoma, breast cancer, and squamous cell carcinoma of the lung) were prepared and measured by MALDI-MSI at different sites using a standard protocol (SOP).

Review of uterine fibroids: imaging of typical and atypical features, variants, and mimics with emphasis on workup and FIGO classification.

Abdom Radiol (NY) 2022 Jul 13;47(7):2468-2485. Epub 2022 May 13.

Division of Diagnostic Imaging, Department of Abdominal Imaging, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, 1515 Holcombe Blvd. Houston, Texas, 77030, USA.

Uterine fibroids are the most common gynecologic neoplasm. Although non-degenerated fibroids are easily identifiable on imaging, degenerated fibroids, fibroid variants, and fibroids with unusual growth patterns can constitute a diagnostic dilemma. Identification of these abnormal morphologic features can alter the diagnosis of presumed uterine fibroids and hence change management plans. Read More

Benign Metastasizing Leiomyoma and Findings on Fluorodeoxyglucose Positron Emission Tomography/Contrast-Enhanced Computed Tomography.

Indian J Nucl Med 2022 Jan-Mar;37(1):68-70. Epub 2022 Mar 25.

Department of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Homi Bhabha National Institute, Tata Memorial Hospital, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.

Benign metastasizing leiomyoma is a rare condition where benign smooth muscle tumors having a histological appearance similar to uterine leiomyoma are present at distant sites. This entity is commonly associated with a past history of hysterectomy done for uterine fibroids. The knowledge of the presence of significant fluorodeoxyglucose uptake in leiomyoma helped in the diagnosis of this condition in a 47-year-old patient who being evaluated for multiple unusual sites of metastases; this was further confirmed on histopathology.

BMC Womens Health 2022 04 27;22(1):139. Epub 2022 Apr 27.

Department of Medical Imaging, Chung Shan Medical University Hospital, Taichung City, 40201, Taiwan.

Background: Bet1 Golgi vesicular membrane trafficking protein-like (BET1L) rs2280543 single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and diet have been independently associated with uterine leiomyoma (UL).

Am Soc Clin Oncol Educ Book 2022 Apr;42:1-10

Sylvester Comprehensive Center Cancer/University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Miami, FL.

Uterine sarcomas are rare mesenchymal tumors that are aggressive cancers. The rarity of these tumors, and consequently limited prospective data, has made surgical management of uterine sarcomas challenging. One major obstacle in the management of uterine sarcomas is establishing the diagnosis prior to surgery, which is crucial for appropriate intraoperative management. Read More

Prolonged Cadmium Exposure Alters Migration Dynamics and Increases Heterogeneity of Human Uterine Fibroid Cells-Insights from Time Lapse Analysis.

Biomedicines 2022 Apr 16;10(4). Epub 2022 Apr 16.

Molecular Pathogenesis Group, Mechanistic Toxicology Branch, Division of the National Toxicology Program, National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, National Institutes of Health, 111 TW Alexander Drive, Durham, NC 27709, USA.

Cadmium (Cd) is one of the most prevalent environmental heavy metal contaminants and is considered an endocrine disruptor and carcinogen. In women with uterine fibroids, there is a correlation between blood Cd levels and fibroid tumor size. In this study, fibroid cells were exposed to 10 µM CdCl for 6 months and a fast-growing Cd-Resistant Leiomyoma culture, termed CR-LM6, was recovered. Read More
