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.

    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.

  • Growing teratoma syndrome: a surgical conundrum
    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.

  • Myocardial bridging - Sudden unexpected death of a young girl: A case report
    D. Aden, R. Phulware, S. Mittal and A. Ahuja

    Myocardial bridging (MB) is a relatively uncommon congenital anomaly where a segment of the coronary artery dips inside the myocardium and takes a tunneled course under a bridge of the myocardium. This leads to the compression of the coronary artery during systole resulting in hemodynamic changes and their clinical manifestations. However, it is an incidental finding but can present with multiple complications like myocardial ischemia, infarction, and sudden death, primarily when associated with other risk factors like left ventricular hypertrophy of the heart. Therefore, a careful examination of the heart is essential for evaluating the clinical significance of the MB. Here, we presented a case of a 30-year-old young female who had a sudden death, and her histological examination of the heart showed MB of left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD).

    Informa UK Limited
    Abstract Microvillous inclusion disease (MVID), also known as congenital microvillus atrophy remains an important differential diagnosis of intractable secretory diarrhea in neonatal period. The condition is inherited as an autosomal recessive disorder with no sex predilection and more commonly reported in those tribes with consanguineous marriages. The pathognomonic electron microscopic findings includes villous atrophy with the formation of intracellular microvillous inclusions. Definite treatment includes either isolated small bowel or combined small bowel and liver transplantation. Herein, we are describing a case of intractable diarrhea in a preterm neonate with MVID phenotype presented on second day of life with intractable diarrhea. The diagnosis was established by classical electron microscopic findings in the intestinal biopsy sample.

  • Renal angiomyoadenomatous tumor (RAT): a rare distinct entity with diagnostic challenges—a case report
    Ankur Majumder, Ravi Hari Phulware, Arvind Ahuja, Anurag Singla, and Pawan Kumar

    Springer Science and Business Media LLC
    AbstractBackgroundRenal angiomyoadenomatous tumor (RAT) is a recently described rare renal neoplasm with variations in the presentation, gross, and microscopic findings, and having a benign course and good prognosis. It is characterized microscopically by the admixture of three components—epithelial cells arranged in tubules and nests, angiomyomatous stroma, and capillary-sized interconnecting vascular channels in close association with the epithelial cell clusters. Microscopically, these tumors can be confused with clear cell carcinoma, papillary carcinoma, mixed epithelial and stromal tumors, and angiomyolipoma. RAT differs from conventional clear cell carcinomas, which can rarely be associated with an identical leiomyomatosis stroma occasionally forming abortive vascular structures. RAT is a distinct morphologic entity, being different morphologically, immunohistochemically, and genetically from all renal tumors including conventional clear cell carcinoma and mixed epithelial and stromal tumor of the kidney.Case presentationHere, we report a case of a 21-year-old man with renal angiomyoadenomatous tumor, a rare neoplasm with only a few previous cases reported in the literature. Unlike our case, most tumors have been identified in middle-aged males; they present as well-circumscribed, encapsulated tan-brown masses with variably prominent cystic areas.ConclusionDiagnosis of RAT is challenging because of the rarity of the disease and common presenting symptoms to other renal pathology and is supplemented with histopathology and immunohistochemistry. A multidisciplinary team approach for diagnosis and management along with long-term follow-up are warranted.
