  • Giant ovarian mucinous cystadenoma, a challenging situation in resource-limited countries. [Case Reports]
    J Surg Case Rep 2019; 2019(12):rjz366Moyon MA, León DA, … Molina G
  • Mucinous cystadenomas are a common benign neoplasm of the ovaries that can grow much larger than other adnexal masses; they are recognized as precursors of ovarian cancer and may slowly transform to borderline tumors and invasive ovarian cancer. Prompt and accurate treatment is essential as these tumors can grow to massive sizes and be potentially lethal if left untreated. Health care providers m…
  • A rare presentation and recurrence of a retroperitoneal Müllerian cyst in a male patient: A case report. [Journal Article]
    Int J Surg Case Rep 2019; 65:301-304Naem A, Dlewati A, … Alsaid B
  • CONCLUSIONS: The retroperitoneal Müllerian cyst is a benign cystadenoma that could be confused with other retroperitoneal lesions, which makes the pathological examination with the immunohistochemical study of the cyst's wall essential to make the diagnosis. The immunopositivity to Cytokeratin 7 and the immunonegativity to Cytokeratin 20 is a key feature that confirm the diagnosis whenever the retroperitoneal Müllerian cyst is suspected. Due to its high vascularity, we highly recommend the administration of chemotherapy which targets the proliferative cyst's cells.The RMCs are rare benign lesions that tend to reoccur if total surgical resection isn't made, when the total resection couldn't be achieved, the-unspecific anti-mitotic drugs may help in minimizing the recurrence and improve the life quality of the patient.
  • Preoperative contrast-enhanced computed tomographic characterisation of pancreatic cystic lesions: A prospective study. [Journal Article]
    SA J Radiol 2019; 23(1):1727Saleem DM, Haseeb WA, … Feroz I
  • CONCLUSIONS: The diagnostic accuracy of computed tomography (CT) was high for SCA, IPMN and pancreatic cysts, and low for MCA and SPT. Combination of a multiloculated cystic lesion with locule size of less than 20 mm, septal enhancement with relative lack of wall enhancement, central scar and lobulated outline are highly specific for SCA. Unilocular or macro-cystic pattern with locule size of more than 20 mm, female gender and wall enhancement with smooth external contour are pointers towards MCA. Solid cystic pancreatic head lesions in young females may be suggestive of SPT. A dilated main pancreatic duct in a cystic lesion with internal septations may point towards IPMN. Fluid attenuation lesions with imperceptible non-enhancing wall indicate pancreatic cysts. Lastly, pseudocysts and neuroendocrine tumours with cystic components are great mimickers of pancreatic cystic lesions, and a history of pancreatitis and hormonal profile of patients should always be sought.
