Molecular landscape of Hereditary cancer gene panel in urinary bladder cancer in young adults of Sub Himalayan region of Uttarakhand and Western Uttar Pradesh

There is limited information on an exome scale about the germline molecular alteration leading to urinary bladder cancer in young patients in India. Patients from Uttarakhand and Western Uttar Pradesh are usually from low socioeconomic strata and come with advanced stages of tumor. Hence there is a felt need of doing exome profiling study to pick up the gene mutations in this region. This will add to the understanding of the pathogenesis of disease and will help in making a gene panel for early screening and detection.

    ABSTRACT Esophageal melanocytosis is a rare entity defined by the proliferation of a melanocytic basal layer of the esophageal squamous lining and deposition of melanin in the esophageal mucosa. Esophageal melanocytosis is considered a benign entity of unknown etiology; however, it has been reported as a melanoma precursor. We report a case of esophageal melanocytosis in a diabetic and hypertensive 67-year-old male with recurrent dizziness and syncope for the past 6 months. Given his complaint of dyspepsia, he underwent an upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, in which an esophageal biopsy revealed the diagnosis of esophageal melanocytosis. The definitive diagnosis of esophageal melanocytosis can only be made by histological analysis. The histologic differential diagnoses include melanocytic nevi and malignant melanoma. Therefore, they need to be ruled out.

    moderate cytoplasm. A few cells showed cytoplasmic clearing. The peritumoral desmoplastic reaction was also identified with intratumorally brisk mitotic figures. Focal areas of necrosis with acute and chronic inflammatory infiltrate were also identified. Immunohistochemistry revealed tumor cells to be diffusely positive for cytokeratin 7 (CK7) and CK19 (Figure 1C and 1D) and negative for CK20, thyroid transcription factor (TTF-1), Gross Cystic Disease Fluid Protein-15 (GCDFP-15), mammaglobin, Hepatocyte Paraffin 1 (Hep Par1), Paired box gene 8 (PAX-8) and Wilms tumor gene 1 (WT1). An abdominal computed tomography scan on imaging workup revealed a gallbladder mass with multiple liver lesions and brain metastasis. Based on immunohistochemistry and imaging findings, the diagnosis was metastatic gall bladder carcinoma to the scalp.

    Pallavi Verma, Shalini Rajaram, Raj Kumar Kottayasamy seenivasagam, and Ravi Hari Phulware

    Growing teratoma syndrome (GTS) is a tumour growth, which contains mature teratomatous elements during or after chemotherapy for malignant germ cell tumours. Surgery is the only potential treatment option for GTS because these growing teratomas are resistant to chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Extensive surgeries may be needed in GTS with multivisceral resections to achieve no residual disease status. This report presents a case of GTS treated with multiple surgical resections in a woman with malignant immature teratoma ovary in her early thirties; she is disease free after 1 year of treatment.

    Myxoid liposarcoma variant of liposarcoma which constitutes around 15% to 20% to one-fourth of all liposarcoma (LPS). 1 They are most commonly seen in the thigh in the deeper soft tissue with rare cases found in the foot (1.3% – 2.7%) or leg (6.7% – 13.5%). 2 The male to female ratio is 1.1:1 with age ranging between 17 and 76 years and a mean age of 52 years. The size ranges between 2 and 32 cm (mean: 9.7 cm). 1 As per the recent WHO 2020 there are five types of liposarcomas namely well-differentiated, myxoid, round cells, pleomorphic and the newly introduced myxoid pleomorphic liposarcoma. 1 – 3 They present as a rapidly enlarging, painless mass; 30% of patients may have dull aching pain or tenderness with few giving a history of trauma in the affected area. 1 There is no specific diagnostic finding on MRI and it may mimic a ganglion cyst at times. Soft-tissue sarcomas are generally restricted to one

  • Primary ovarian leiomyosarcoma in a woman with uterovaginal prolapse
    Anupama Bahadur, Rajlaxmi Mundhra, Pallavi Verma, and Ravi Hari Phulware

    Primary ovarian leiomyosarcoma is a very uncommon and aggressive neoplasm. We presented a right-sided ovarian leiomyosarcoma in a woman in her late 40s. No case has been described in the literature till now of primary ovarian leiomyosarcoma in a woman with uterovaginal prolapse. A total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral adnexectomy, metastasectomy, excision of large tumour deposit over small intestine followed by resection with ileo-ileal anastomosis and omentectomy was performed. The diagnosis was made based on morphology along with immunohistochemistry. The patient was given adjuvant chemotherapy during postoperative period. Due to rarity, there is a dearth of information on the clinical behaviour and best treatment options for these tumours. This case report highlighted the importance of clinical awareness and aimed to provide a baseline to guide clinical practice as well as future research.

  • Medullary carcinoma of jejunum presenting as perforation peritonitis: A case report
    Amrita Talwar, A. Ahuja and R. Phulware

    Small intestinal medullary carcinoma (MC) is a newly recognized subclass of small intestinal carcinomas and is an exceptional entity for this site. A search of the literature for similar cases arising in the small intestine revealed only six previously reported cases. Here we present a case of MC arising in the jejunum of a 65-year-old male. The patient presented to the emergency with features of perforation peritonitis with liver metastasis and no known predisposing factors like inflammatory bowel disease and celiac disease. Studies conducted on this tumor's colonic counterpart have shown microsatellite instability (MSI) and B-type Raf kinase (BRAF) mutations; however, few exceptions are known. Also, this subtype of carcinoma is known to have a better prognosis than its other histological subtypes.
