ABSTRACT

Introdução: embora o câncer seja um dos maiores problemas de saúde pública enfrentados mundialmente, diversas substâncias presentes no meio, como os fármacos, não estão muito bem elucidadas sobre seu possível potencial carcinogênico. Entre eles, estão os benzodiazepínicos, fármacos que possuem crescente aumento do consumo desde o século XX e, principalmente, na segunda década do século XXI, por suas ações ansiolíticas, sedativas e anticonvulsivantes. Objetivo: avaliar o efeito carcinogênico do bromazepam por meio do teste para detecção de tumores epiteliais (ETT) em Drosophila melanogaster. Metodologia: para realização do ETT foram utilizadas duas linhagens mutantes de D. melanogaster: wts (fêmeas) e mwh (machos). As larvas descendentes desse cruzamento foram tratadas isoladamente com cinco concentrações de bromazepam, sendo elas: 0,0375; 0,075; 0,15; 0,30 e 0,60 mM. A Doxorrubicina foi utilizada como controle positivo e a água ultrapura como controle negativo. Após tratamento, coleta e armazenamento, as moscas foram analisadas, identificando-se as frequências tumorais, por região corporal, em cada concentração testada. Resultados: o bromazepam não apresentou efeito carcinogênico em nenhuma das concentrações experimentadas neste estudo, não havendo diferença estatisticamente significativa nas frequências tumorais observadas nos indivíduos tratados com bromazepam quando comparadas à frequência obtida nos indivíduos tratados com o controle negativo. Conclusão: Nas presentes condições experimentais, o bromazepam não apresentou atividade carcinogênica, no entanto, há a necessidade de novos estudos, com diferentes metodologias e diferentes organismos testes, para a maior compreensão da ação do bromazepam no organismo.


Introduction: although cancer is one of the biggest public health problems faced worldwide, several substances present in the environment, such as drugs are not very well understood about its possible carcinogenic potential. Among them are benzodiazepines, drugs that have increased their consumption since the 20th century and, mainly, in the second decade of the 21st century, due to their anxiolytic, sedative and anticonvulsant actions. Objective: Evaluate the carcinogenic effect of bromazepam through the test to detect epithelial tumor clones (ETT) in Drosophila melanogaster. Methodology: to perform the ETT, two mutant strains of D. melanogaster were used: wts (female) and mwh (male). The descending larves of this cross were treated separately with five concentrations of bromazepam, namely: 0.0375; 0.075; 0.15; 0.30 and 0.60 mM. Doxorubicin was used as a positive control and ultrapure water as a negative control. After treatment, collection and storage, the flies were analyzed, identifying the tumor frequencies, by body region, at each concentration tested. Results: bromazepam did not have a carcinogenic effect at any of the concentrations experienced in this study, with no statistically significant difference in tumor frequencies observed in individuals treated with bromazepam when compared to the frequency obtained in individuals treated with the negative control. Conclusion: In the present experimental conditions, bromazepam did not show carcinogenic activity, however, there is a need for further studies with different methodologies and different test organisms to better understand the action of bromazepam in the body.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Cervical cancer is the third most common malignant tumor in the female population and the fourth cause of death from cancer in women in Brazil. The squamocolumnar junction and the transformation zone concentrate 90% of pre-invasive and invasive cervical lesions. Objective: To evaluate the prevalence of cytology without cells of the squamocolumnar junction and feasibility of active search. Methods: Cross-sectional study at a university hospital between 2017 and 2018. The prevalence of cytology without squamocolumnar junction cells was calculated. A convenience sample was obtained and mean age and relationship with presence of transformation zone cells were calculated. An active search was performed and cytology collected, with estrogen preparation if indicated. Medical records of the other women were analyzed. Results: Squamocolumnar junction cells were not found in 28.84% of samples. Mean age was 53 years, without association with presence of squamocolumnar junction cells (p=0.409). Seventy-six women returned, 36 of which (47.37%) used estrogen. Level 2 or 3 cervical intraepithelial neoplasia, microinvasive carcinoma or cancer was not identified. A total of 134 medical records were analyzed; only 36 women (26.87%) completed screening. Conclusions: The presence of squamocolumnar junction cells indicates quality of cytology; the use of estrogen in postmenopausal women favors its collection. There were difficulties in active search. An immediate repetition of cytology should be considered.


Introdução: O câncer de colo uterino é o terceiro tumor maligno mais frequente na população feminina e a quarta causa de morte de mulheres por câncer no Brasil. A junção escamo-colunar e a zona de transformação concentram 90% das lesões pré-invasoras e invasoras cervicais. Objetivo: Avaliar prevalência de colpocitologias sem células da junção escamo-colunar e a viabilidade de busca ativa. Métodos: Estudo transversal em hospital universitário entre 2017 e 2018. Calculada prevalência de citologias sem células da junção escamo-colunar. Obtida amostra por conveniência, calculada média de idade e relação com a presença da junção escamo-colunar. Realizada busca ativa e colhidas citologias com preparo estrogênico, se indicado. Analisados os prontuários das demais mulheres. Resultados: A prevalência de ausência de células da junção escamo-colunar foi de 28,84%. A média de idade foi 53 anos, sem associação com presença da junção escamo-colunar (p=0,409). Retornaram 76 mulheres e 36 (47,37%) usaram estrogênio. Não identificamos neoplasia intraepitelial cervical graus 2 ou 3, carcinoma microinvasor e câncer. Analisados 134 prontuários, dos quais apenas 36 mulheres (26,87%) concluíram o rastreio. Conclusões: A presença de células da junção escamo-colunar indica qualidade da coleta, e o uso de estrogênio na pós-menopausa favorece sua obtenção. Houve dificuldade de busca ativa. A repetição imediata da citologia deve ser considerada.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Tobacco smoke is composed of cancer-causing chemicals referred to as carcinogens. These carcinogens are metabolized by the enzymes of the cytochrome P450 (CYP) family. Our objective was to evaluate the correlation of tobacco consumption parameters with CYP1A1, CYP1B1 and CYP2A6 expression using qRT-PCR in samples of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). Material and Methods: The sample was divided into 2 groups: Cancer (36 subjects) and non-Cancer (12 subjects). The smokers' participants (36) were evaluated regarding their Nicotine dependence (ND) was assessed by the Fagerström test for cigarette dependence (FTCD). Questions regarding tobacco consumption like the number of cigarettes/day (CPD), duration of use, and pack-years were also evaluated. The Mann-Whitney and Spearman correlation tests were used at a significance level of 5%. Results: 48 participants were included, 32 men (66.7%), 36 smokers (75%) and 27 smokers with OSCC (56.3%). Samples of OSCC expressed more CYP1A1, CYP1B1, and CYP2A6. Especially, the CYP1B1 gene was significantly expressed in OSCC samples, regardless gender or tobacco use. No women expressed CYP2A6, as well as, non-smokers did not express the CYP1A1 and CYP2A6 genes. CYP1A1 gene was higher among men (P = 0.021). Conclusion: Lack of exposure to tobacco may justify the absence of CYP1A1 and CYP2A6 expression in non-smokers. The CYP1B1 gene was significantly expressed in the cancer presence despite gender or tobacco use. The assessment of ND and quantification of tobacco consumption are important instruments in monitoring smokers with benign oral lesions and, especially, in the presence of cancer.(AU)


Objetivo: A fumaça do tabaco é composta de substâncias químicas cancerígenas conhecidas como carcinógenos. Esses carcinógenos são metabolizados pelas enzimas da família do citocromo P450 (CYP). Nosso objetivo foi avaliar a correlação dos parâmetros do consumo de tabaco com a expressão de CYP1A1, CYP1B1 e CYP2A6 por qRT-PCR em amostras de carcinoma de células escamosas bucal (CCEB). Material e Métodos: A amostra foi dividida em 2 grupos: Câncer (36 indivíduos) e sem Câncer (12 indivíduos). Os participantes fumantes (36) foram avaliados quanto à dependência nicotínica (DN) pelo teste de Fagerström para dependência de cigarro (TFDC). Questões relacionadas ao consumo de tabaco como número de cigarros / dia (CPD), tempo de uso e anos-maço também foram avaliadas. Os testes de correlação de Mann-Whitney e Spearman foram utilizados com nível de significância de 5%. Resultados: foram incluídos 48 participantes, 32 homens (66,7%), 36 fumantes (75%) e 27 fumantes com CCEB (56,3%). Amostras de CCEB expressaram mais CYP1A1, CYP1B1 e CYP2A6. Especialmente, o gene CYP1B1 foi significativamente expresso em amostras de CCEB, apesar do sexo ou uso de tabaco. Nenhuma mulher expressou CYP2A6, assim como, não fumantes não expressaram os genes CYP1A1 e CYP2A6. O gene CYP1A1 foi maior entre os homens (P = 0,021). Conclusão: A falta de exposição pode justificar a ausência da expressão dos genes CYP1A1 e CYP2A6 entre não fumantes. O gene CYP1B1 foi significativamente expresso na presença de câncer, independentemente do sexo ou do uso de tabaco. A avaliação da DN e a quantificação do consumo de tabaco são importantes instrumentos no acompanhamento de fumantes com lesões bucais benignas e, principalmente, na presença de câncer (AU)

ABSTRACT

Abstract Carcinoma of the mammary crease is a very rare variant of breast carcinoma, in which the skin lesions are usually the presenting sign. The authors present the case of an 88-year-old woman with an exophytic plaque in the mammary crease of approximately ten years duration. The histopathological and immunohistochemical studies confirmed the diagnosis of infiltrative breast carcinoma (carcinoma of the mammary crease variant). This case highlights the important role of the dermatologist in the early diagnosis of this rare variant of breast cancer.

ABSTRACT

Resumen La psoriasis verrugosa es una variante atípica y poco frecuente de la psoriasis, con pocos casos reportados en la literatura. Se caracteriza por la presencia de placas hipertróficas y verrugosas simétricas en extremidades y tronco. Se presenta el caso de un paciente de 63 años con diagnóstico de psoriasis en placa 20 años atrás, tratado con esteroide tópico y quien 10 años antes había desarrollado una placa de aspecto verrugoso en el tercio distal de la cara posterior de la pierna izquierda. Se tomó la biopsia de la lesión por sospecha de un carcinoma escamocelular (verrugoso). El estudio histopatológico mostró cambios indicativos de psoriasis verrugosa y descartó la presencia de malignidad.


Abstract Verrucous psoriasis is an atypical and rare variant of psoriasis with few cases reported in the literature. It is characterized by the presence of symmetric hypertrophic and verrucous plaques on the limbs and trunk. We present the case of a 63-year-old male patient with a history of vulgar psoriasis for 20 years who was receiving treatment with topical steroids and had developed a verrucous plaque in the distal third of the posterior aspect of the leg 10 years before. We conducted a biopsy of the lesion to confirm or discard the diagnostic impression of squamous cell carcinoma (verrucous). The histopathological study showed changes compatible with verrucous psoriasis ruling out the presence of malignancy.

ABSTRACT

Resumen Para evaluar la utilidad diagnóstica del estudio patológico intraoperatorio (EPI) en cirugía tiroidea se realizó una revisión retrospectiva de sus resultados en 350 pacientes en comparación con la biopsia preoperatoria por punción con aguja fina (PAAF) y el est udio patológico diferido (EPD). Los resultados de la PAAF se clasificaron según el sistema de Bethesda en categoría II (91 casos, 26.0%), III (21 casos, 6.0%), IV (73 casos, 21.9%), V (54 casos, 15.4%) y VI (111 casos, 31.7%). El EPI mostró lesiones benignas en 137 casos (39.1%), malignas en 169 (48.2%), y resultados no definitivos en 44 (12.6 %). El EPD informó patología benigna en 161 casos (46%) y carcinoma en 189 (54%); se encontró carcinoma en 8 pacientes (5.8%) en quienes el EPI había informado lesión benigna y en 12 (27.2%) en quienes había informado no definitivo; 13 de estos 20 casos fueron microcarcinomas incidentales. El EPI no informó ningún falso positivo (especificidad 100%, sensibilidad 89.4%, valor predictivo positivo 100%, valor predictivo negativo 90.0%, exactitud 94.2%). Los resultados de malignidad con EPI y EPD, según categorías de Bethesda fueron respectivamente: II 3 (3.3%) y 7 (7.7%); III 8 (38.1%) y 10 (47.6%); IV 3 (4.1%) y 10 (13.7%); V 47 (87.0%) y 52 (96.3%); VI 108 (97.3%) y 110 (99.1%). El EPI no dio información adicional a la biopsia por PAAF en la mayoría de los casos ni detectó microcarcinomas en otros, por lo que no parece justificado indicarlo rutinariamente.


Abstract To evaluate the usefulness of intraoperative pathology (IP) in thyroid surgery, a retrospective review of its results in 350 patients was performed in comparison with the results of the preoperative fine-needle biopsy (FNB) and the surgical pathology report (SPR). The FNB was reported according to the Bethesda system as type II in 91 cases (26.0%), type III in 21 (6.0%), type IV in 73 (21.9%), type V in 54 (15.4%), and type VI in 111 (31.7%). The IP showed benign lesions in 137 cases (39.1%), malignancy in 169 (48.2%), and inconclusive results in 44 (12.6%). The SPR results were benign pathology in 161 cases (46%) and carcinoma in 189 (54%); carcinoma was found in 8 patients (5.8%) in whom the IP had reported benignity, and in 12 (27.2%) with IP inconclusive results; 13 of those 20 cases were incidental microcarcinomas. The IP did not report any false positive result (specificity 100 %, sensitivity 89.4%, positive predictive value 100%, negative predictive value 90.0%, and accuracy 94.2%). When discriminated by Bethesda types, the malignant lesions detected by IP and SPR were, respectively: II 3 (3.3%) and 7 (7.70%); III 8 (38.1%) and 10 (47.6%); IV 3 (4.1%) and 10 (13.7%); V 47 (87.0%) and 52 (96.3%); VI 108 (97.3%) and 110 (99.1%). In most cases, the IP did not provide additional information to the FNB report nor did it detect microcarcinomas in others, so it does not seem justified to perform it routinely.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Background Colorectal resection anastomosis is the commonest cause of rectal strictures. Anastomotic site ischemia, incomplete doughnuts from stapled anastomosis and pelvic infection, are some of the risk factors that play a role in the development of postoperative rectal strictures. However, the role of diverting stoma in the development of rectal strictures has not been studied extensively. Objectives To study the difference in the occurrence of anastomotic strictures (AS) in patients submitted to low anterior resection (LAR) with covering ileostomy (CI), and to LAR without CI for carcinoma rectum. Methods This was a prospective, comparative case control study carried out at a tertiary care referral center. Low anterior resection with covering ileostomy was performed in patients with rectum carcinoma in the study group, while LAR without covering ileostomy was performed in the control group. The study group had 29 patients, while the control group had 33 patients with rectum carcinoma. Results During themean follow-up period of 9.1months, 8 (28%) patients in the study group and 2 (6%) patients in the control group developed AS (p =0.019). Out of these 8 patients with AS in the study group, 50% had Grade-I AS, 25% had Grade-II AS, while 25% of the patients had Grade-III (severe) AS. However, both patients who developed AS in the control group had a mild type (Grade I) of AS. Conclusion Covering ileostomy increases the chances of AS formation after LAR for rectum carcinoma. Also, the SKIMS Clinical Grading of Rectal Strictures is a simple and


Resumo Introdução A anastomose de ressecção colorretal é a causa mais comum de estenoses retais. A isquemia do local da anastomose, donuts (anéis) incompletos de anastomose grampeada e infecção pélvica são alguns dos fatores de risco que desempenham um papel no desenvolvimento de estenoses retais pós-operatórias. No entanto, o papel do estoma de desvio no desenvolvimento de estenoses retais não foi estudado extensivamente. Objetivos Estudar a diferença na ocorrência de estenoses anastomóticas (EA) em pacientes submetidos à ressecção anterior baixa (LAR) com ileostomia de proteção e a LAR sem ileostomia de proteção para carcinoma de reto. Métodos Este foi um estudo prospectivo e comparativo de caso-controle realizado em um centro de referência de atenção terciária. A ressecção anterior baixa com ileostomia de proteção foi realizada em pacientes com carcinoma de reto no grupo de estudo, enquanto LAR sem ileostomia de proteção foi realizada no grupo controle. O grupo de estudo tinha 29 pacientes, enquanto o grupo controle tinha 33 pacientes com carcinoma de reto. Resultados Durante o período de acompanhamento médio de 9, 1 meses, 8 (28%) pacientes no grupo de estudo e 2 (6%) pacientes no grupo controle desenvolveram EA (p=0,019). Destes 8 pacientes com EA no grupo de estudo, 50% tinham EA de Grau I, 25% tinhamEA de Grau II, enquanto 25% dos pacientes tinham EA de Grau III (grave). No entanto, ambos os pacientes que desenvolveram EA no grupo de controle tinham um tipo leve (Grau I) de EA. Conclusão A ileostomia de proteção aumenta as chances de formação de AS após LAR para carcinoma de reto. Além disso, o SKIMS Clinical Grading of Rectal Strictures é uma ferramenta simples e útil disponível para cada cirurgião para graduar, classificar e monitorar as estenoses retais pós-operatórias.

ABSTRACT

Resumen La bacteremia por Streptococcus gordonii es infrecuente. Su aislamiento en hemocultivo traduce alta significancia clínica y debe dirigir el abordaje diagnóstico hacia la búsqueda de entidades subyacentes como neoplasias hematológicas, cardiopatías valvulares, neumonía, alteraciones estructurales de cabeza y cuello, inmunosupresión, y otras condiciones asociadas. No se han identificado reportes en pacientes con neoplasia de vías urinarias como posible condicionante de bacteremia por este agente. Se describe el caso de un paciente que, durante el estudio de bacteremia por este microorganismo, fue diagnosticado de carcinoma urotelial de alto grado.


Abstract Streptococcus gordonii bacteremia is rare. Its isolation in blood culture translates into high clinical significance and the diagnostic approach should be directed towards the search for underlying entities such as hematologic malignancies, valvular heart disease, pneumonia, structural changes of the head and neck, immunosuppression and other related conditions. No reports have been identified in patients with urinary tract neoplasia as a possible condition of bacteremia by this agent. The case of a patient who was diagnosed with high-grade urothelial carcinoma during the study of bacteremia by this microorganism is described.

ABSTRACT

RESUMEN Introducción: el cáncer de la vejiga es la segunda neoplasia urológica. En Cuba constituye la séptima causa de cáncer en el sexo masculino y entre las primeras quince, cuando se combinan ambos sexos. Objetivo: evaluar el comportamiento del cáncer de vejiga en pacientes del Hospital Universitario Comandante "Faustino Pérez Hernández". Materiales y Métodos: se realizó un estudio observacional, descriptivo y transversal en el período comprendido desde diciembre de 2014 hasta enero de 2020. Los pacientes se dividieron en tres grupos tratados con cirugía de mínimo acceso, cirugía abierta y no operados, se describieron los grupos histológicos y estadiaje tumoral y se les aplicó tratamiento según protocolo del servicio, sus complicaciones y la presencia de recidivas tumorales también fueron descritas. En el universo se incluyeron en el estudio 222 pacientes diagnosticados de cáncer de vejiga. Resultados: se comprobó que el mayor número de pacientes diagnosticados con cáncer de vejiga son del sexo masculino, el tipo histológico es el carcinoma de células uroteliales de bajo grado y el estadio T1. Las recidivas se presentaron antes de los 5 años en el 10,8% de los casos. 196 pacientes presentaron complicaciones. Conclusiones: el cáncer de vejiga es más frecuente en las edades comprendidas entre 60 a 69 años, las recidivas aparecieron mayormente entre 1 y 3 años. Se presentó complicaciones en 196 pacientes, siendo la cirugía la modalidad terapéutica que mayor por ciento tuvo con un 32.22% y las infecciones son las complicaciones más frecuentes (AU).


SUMMARY Introduction: Cancer of the bladder (CV) is the second urological neoplasm. In Cuba it constitutes the seventh cause of cancer in males and among the first fifteen, when both sexes are combined. Objective: To evaluate the behavior of bladder cancer (CV) in patients of the Faustino Pérez Hernández Hospital. Materials and methods: An observational, descriptive and cross-sectional study was carried out in the period from December 2014 to January 2020. The patients were divided into 3 groups treated with Minimum Access Surgery (CMA), Open Surgery (CA) and No Operated (NO), the histological groups and tumor staging were described and treatment was applied according to the service protocol, their complications and the presence of tumor recurrences were also described.Universe: 222 patients diagnosed with bladder cancer were included in the study. Results: It was found that the greatest number of patients diagnosed with CV are male, the histological type is low-grade urothelial cell carcinoma and stage T1. Recurrences occurred before 5 years in 10.8% of cases. 196 patients presented complications. Conclusions: The CV is more frequent in the ages between 60 to 69 years, the recurrences appeared mainly between 1 and three years. Complications occurred in 196 patients, with Surgery being the therapeutic modality with the highest percentage with 32.22% and infections being the most frequent complications (AU).

ABSTRACT

Abstract Muir-Torre syndrome is a rare, autosomal dominant genodermatosis, characterized by sebaceous neoplasms and visceral carcinomas. The authors describe the case of a patient who, 16 years after the diagnosis of colon carcinoma, presented a verrucous plaque on the pubic region, histopathologically compatible with sebaceous adenoma. The need to investigate this syndrome is emphasized, especially in cases of sebaceous neoplasms located outside the head, face, and neck. Screening for neoplasms in these patients and their families is mandatory.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Hypothesis: Endoclip can be used as fiducial marker in urology. Objective: To assess the feasibility, cost effectiveness and reliability of endoclips as novel fiducial markers in precision radiotherapy, as part of a trimodality bladder-preserving treatment (TBPT) of muscle-invasive bladder carcinoma. Materials and Methods: This retrospective study was performed at Weifang People's Hospital (Weifang, China) from January 2015 to June 2018. A total of 15 patients underwent TBPT. Endoclips were applied to healthy edges of the resected bladder wall as novel fiducial markers. Radio-sensitizing chemotherapy and routine precision radiotherapy were given. The number and position of the endoclips during radiotherapy sessions were monitored. Complications and tumor recurrence were analyzed. Results: The mean age (±standard deviation) of the patients was 67±10 years (range 46-79). There were 3 females and 12 males. Forty-nine endoclips were applied in all patients (3.3±0.8). The tumor was completely visibly resected in all patients. The number of endoclips remained the same through the planned last radiotherapy session (3.3±0.8), i.e., none were lost. All endoclips were removed after the last radiotherapy session. The average number of follow-up months was 38.9±13.2 (range 11-52). There were no procedure-related complications at discharge or follow-up. At one-year, overall recurrence-free survival was 93.3%. Two patients had recurrences at 18 months and 10 months after TBPT, respectively, and salvage radical cystectomy was performed with no further recurrences. Another patient died due to metastasis 9 months after the completion of therapy. Conclusions: Endoclips are reliable, safe and cost-effective as novel fiducial markers in precision-radiotherapy post-TBPT.

ABSTRACT

El carcinoma colorrectal (CCR) es de las primeras causas de mortalidad del mundo, presentando Guatemala una incidencia anual de 7.4/millón de habitantes. El síndrome de Lynch se caracteriza clínicamente por un inicio temprano del CCR con lesiones causadas por alteraciones en genes que codifican proteínas reparadoras.Los microsatélites son regiones del ADN con una unidad repetitiva de uno o más nucleótidos y son susceptibles a errores durante la replicación de ADN de los enterocitos. Existe un sistema de reparación que corrige estos errores. Cuando las proteínas reparadoras de este sistema están mutadas o ausentes, dichos errores del ADN persisten. Estas proteínas reparadoras se expresan en el núcleo de las células colónicas normales y son detecta-bles utilizando estudios de inmunohistoquímica (IHQ). Los genes MLH1 y MSH2 pueden encontrarse mutados en el 90% de los casos de cáncer colorrectal y el resto corresponde a MSH6 y PMS2. Esta vía oncogénica se caracteriza por alteración del sistema de reparación de errores durante la replicación del ADN, controlado por los genes MMR (mismatch repair), principalmente MLH1, MSH2, MSH6 y PMS2. Se realizó una revisión extensa de la literatura en PubMed, Springer y JAMA, usando las palabras clave: fenotipo de CCR, Síndrome de Lynch e inestabilidad microsatelital, detectándose 55 artículos. El objetivo de esta revisión es describir la importancia de la identificación del fenotipo del CCR por medios de IHQ y de pruebas moleculares para el eficaz tratamiento con inmunoterapia anti-PD1/PD-L1.


Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the leading causes of mortality in the world. In Guatemala it's an important cause of morbidity (7.4 per million inhabitants). Lynch syndrome is clinically characterized by an early onset of nonpolyposis colorectal carcinoma, with multiple lesions and neoplasms. The syndrome is caused by mutations in genes encoding DNA mismatch repair proteins. The microsatellites are regions of the DNA that repeat between one or more nucleotides and are susceptible to errors during replication, these are corrected by a repair system, when genes are mutated, the errors persist. The genes encoding repair proteins are expressed in the nuclei of normal colonic cells which can be observed using immunohistochemical studies. The MLH1, MSH2 genes are found to be mutated in 90% of the cases and the rest corresponds to the MSH6 and PMS2 genes. This oncogenic pathway characteristically consists of an alteration in the DNA repair system that is controlled by mismatch repair genes (MMR). An extensive research was conducted on PubMed, Springer and JAMA, using the keyword: CRC phenotype, Lynch syndrome and microsatellite instability. 55 articles were found. This review«s objective is to understand the mechanisms of nonpolyposis colorectal cancer and the importance of identifying patients with a mutant phenotype as a predictive factor for the efficacy of the anti-PD1/PDL1 immunotherapy and for prognosis.

ABSTRACT

Cyclin-dependent kinase 4/6 inhibitors represent a major advance in breast cancer treatment, emerging as the standard of care of the initial treatment of hormone receptor-positive and HER2-negative metastatic breast cancer. Their activity in this subset of patients leads to interest in their use in the adjuvant and neoadjuvant settings. This case report presents a real-life case of cyclin-dependent kinase 4/6 inhibitors use in a patient initially considered to have stage IV luminal HER2-negative breast cancer with liver metastasis. The discrepancy of treatment response between the breast tumor and liver node led to a repetition of the liver biopsy, which revealed metastasis of a neuroendocrine tumor of unknown primary. The breast tumor showed a partial response, and the initial therapeutic strategy was then redefined for curative intent. While cyclin-dependent kinase 4/6 inhibitors are not yet approved for clinical practice in the neo / adjuvant treatment of hormone receptor-positive breast cancer, this case report portrays a successful example of its application in a neoadjuvant setting.

ABSTRACT

Paciente de sexo femenino de 60 años de edad, con antecedente de carcinoma ductal de mama izquierda, presentó dolor agudo en epigastrio que se acompaña de 6 meses de dispepsia, saciedad precoz y pirosis; con una pérdida de 9 kilogramos en 2 meses. Refirió coluria, negó ictericia y acolia. Las pruebas de función hepática mostraron un patrón de colestasis con elevación de gama glutamiltrasferasa (GGT) y fosfatasa alcalina (FA). Fue diagnosticada con un Colangiocarcinoma perihiliar basado en hallazgos abdominales de tomografía y resonancia, con un nódulo parenquimatoso en el segmento 8 del hígado como un tumor infiltrante periductal. El diagnóstico presuntivo fue el de Tumor de Klatskin, pero la anatomía patológica fue compatible con metástasis de carcinoma ductal de mama (CK7 + / GATA3 +). El informe complementario mostró HER-2 negativo y estrógeno negativo (ER) y progesterona (PR) por lo que el inmunofenotipo final fue ER- / PR-; HER2- con índice de proliferación Ki67 <5%, una metástasis de cáncer de mama triple negativo.


A 60-year-old female, with a medical history of a ductal carcinoma of the left breast, presented with sharp pain in epigastrium with 6 months of dyspepsia, early satiety and pyrosis and with the loss of 9 kilograms in 2 months. She referred choluria and denied jaundice and acholia. Liver function tests showed a cholestasis pattern with only elevated Gama Glutamyl Teransferase and alkaline phosphatase. She was diagnosed with a hilar cholangiocarcinoma based on abdominal CT and MRI findings, with a parenchymal nodule in segment 8 of the liver as a periductal infiltrating tumor. The presumed diagnosis was Klatskin Tumor, but the biopsied site was compatible with breast ductal carcinoma metastasis (CK7 + / GATA3 +). The complementary report showed negative HER-2 and negative estrogen (ER) and progesterone (PR) so the final immunophenotype is ER- / PR-; HER2- with proliferation index Ki67 <5%, a triple-negative breast cancer metastasis.

ABSTRACT

La ecografía tiroidea es la principal herramienta diagnóstica en el manejo de los nódulos tiroideos, siendo la presencia de microcalcificaciones un signo de malignidad. Sin embargo, existen escasas publicaciones acerca de la presencia de microcalcificaciones en ausencia de nódulo identificable y su asociación con cáncer de tiroides. Presentamos un caso de una mujer de 26 años, que, tras hallazgo incidental de bocio, se describe en ecografía un tiroides con alteración difusa de su ecogenicidad e imágenes compatibles con microcalcificaciones sin claro nódulo definido en su polo inferior. Tras realización de punción aspiración con aguja fina de la lesión con resultado Bethesda categoría 5, se decide realizar tiroidectomía total, presentando estudio histológico con diagnóstico de carcinoma papilar de tiroides variante clásica con metástasis ganglionares p(T1bN1a). Tras una revisión sistemática, los estudios hasta hoy publicados sugieren que la presencia de microcalcificaciones aisladas sin nódulo identificable debe considerarse un importante factor de riesgo de cáncer de tiroides, especialmente en gente joven, y en aquellas asentadas sobre una tiroiditis de Hashimoto. Por ende, resulta imperativo mantener una alta sospecha ante el hallazgo de este tipo de lesiones, recomendando una valoración exhaustiva de las mismas con la realización de una punción aspiración con aguja fina a todas las lesiones con dichas características.


Thyroid ultrasound is the main diagnostic tool in the management of thyroid nodules, with the presence of microcalcifications being a sign of malignancy. However, there are few publications about the presence of microcalcifications in the absence of an identifiable nodule and its association with thyroid cancer. We present a case of a 26-year-old woman who, after an incidental finding of goiter, a thyroid with diffuse echogenicity alteration and images compatible with microcalcifications without a clear nodule defined in the lower pole of the lobe is described on the ultrasound. After performing a fine needle aspiration of the lesion resulting in a Bethesda category 5, a total thyroidectomy was performed, presenting in the histological study a diagnosis of a classic variant of a papillary thyroid carcinoma with lymph node metastases p (T1bN1a). After a systematic review, the studies previously published suggest that the presence of isolated microcalcifications without an identifiable nodule should be considered an important risk factor for thyroid cancer, especially in young people, and in those with a concomitant Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Therefore, it is imperative to maintain a high suspicion of the discovery of this type of lesion, recommending an exhaustive assessment of them with the performance of a fine needle aspiration to all lesions with these features.

ABSTRACT

The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of human esophageal fibroblast-derived exosomal miR-21 on cisplatin sensitivity against esophageal squamous EC9706 cells. EC9706 cells were co-cultured indirectly with human esophageal fibroblasts (HEF) or miR-21 mimics transfected-HEF in the transwell system. The exosomes in HEF-culture conditioned medium were extracted by differential ultracentrifugation. EC9706 cells were co-cultured with HEF-derived exosomes directly. The cisplatin sensitivity against EC9706 cells was revealed via half maximal inhibitory concentration (IC50) values using MTT assay. The expressions of miR-21, programmed cell death 4 (PDCD4) mRNA, and gene of phosphate and tension homology deleted on chromosome ten (PTEN) mRNA were determined by qRT-PCR. The changes of the protein level were detected using western blot assay. IC50 values of cisplatin against EC9706 cells were increased after EC9706 cells were co-cultured with either HEF or exosomes derived from miR-21 mimics-transfected HEF. Following the increased level of miR-21, the mRNA expression and protein levels of PTEN and PDCD4 were decreased in EC9706 cells. The cisplatin sensitivity to EC9706 cells was reduced by HEF-derived exosomal miR-21 through targeting PTEN and PDCD4. This study suggested that non-tumor cells in the tumor micro-environment increased the tumor anti-chemotherapy effects through their exosomes.

ABSTRACT

Apesar de fibroadenoma ser uma das lesões mais comuns da mama, sua correlação a alteração maligna é rara.1,2,3,5,7 Quando ocorre tem apresentação clínica similar a dos fibroadenomas típicos, diagnóstico anatomopatológico em geral pós-cirúrgico e tratamento conforme do carcinoma do mesmo tipo histológico isolado.1,2,3,4,6 Apresentamos caso de mulher de 52 anos, apresentando em propedêutica investigativa nódulo em mama direita. Core-biopsy sugeriu carcinoma ductal in situ desenvolvido dentro de fibroadenoma, confirmado em análise anatomopatológica pósoperatória. Tratamento e seguimento se deu conforme já estabelecido pela literatura para carcinoma in situ. Devido baixa incidência, há poucas evidências científicas quanto ao diagnóstico, tratamento e prognóstico desse tipo de lesão. Portanto, apresentar à comunidade científica casos de carcinoma inclusos a fibroadenoma se faz relevante.


Although fibroadenoma is one of the most common lesions of the breast, its correlation with malignant changes is rare. When it occurs, the clinical presentation is similar to typical fibroadenomas, anatomopathological diagnosis is after surgery and treatment goes according to the carcinoma histological type. A case of a 52-year-old woman is presented, with an impalpable nodule in the right breast, diagnosed from screening exams. Corebiopsy suggested carcinoma ductal in situ developed within fibroadenoma, confirmed in the postoperative anatomopathological analysis. Treatment and follow-up followed as established in the literature for carcinoma in situ. Due the low incidence, there are poor scientific evidence regarding the diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of this type of injury. Therefore, presenting cases of Carcinoma ductal in situ arising in a fibroadenoma to the scientific community is so relevant.
