The incidence of numerous head and neck tumours is a known issue though bilateral synchronous tonsillar carcinoma reports are so uncommon that only 20 cases were found in a literature review. Most of these patients were treated with bilateral tonsillectomy followed by adjuvant radiotherapy. We report, to our knowledge, the first case of bilateral synchronous tonsillar squamous cell carcinoma treated only with chemoradiotherapy without tonsillectomy.

The frequency of cancer during pregnancy is approximately 1 per 1000 live births. This rate may increase as more women postpone childbirth until later in life, when cancer becomes more frequent. Pregnancy affectsmanagement of the cancer, and the cancer affects the management of pregnancy. The most common malignancies, in order of frequency, are breast cancer, leukaemia and lymphomas as a group, melanoma, gynaecologic cancers, and bone tumours. Ovarian tumours are found in about 1 in 1000 pregnancies and 3-6% of these are malignant. Thus, ovarian cancer occurs in approximately 1 in 12,500-25,000 pregnancies. Here, we report a case of . . . ovarian mucinous carcinoma that was diagnosed at 22 weeks of gestation. After conservative surgery, she was given three cycles of carboplatin chemotherapy. She delivered at 33 weeks of gestation and after undergoing surgery she was given six cycles of paclitaxel and carboplatin chemotherapy. The patient is now being followed by the oncology department with no evidence of disease Daha fazlası Daha az

T-cell/histiocyte-rich large B-cell lymphoma is an unusually encountered lymphoid neoplasm of stomach with aggressive course, and is an uncommon morphologic variant of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. An ulceratedmass, 7x5x1 cm in size was observed within the gastrectomy specimen of a 76-year-old female patient. In cross sections, besides mature lymphoid cells displaying T-cell phenotype, a neoplastic formation composed of large, pleomorphic atypical lymphoid cells with, prominent nucleoli, vesicular nuclei and abundant eosinophilic cytoplasm displaying B-cell phenotype were observed. Meanwhile, histiocyte-like mononuclear cells and R . . .eed-Sternberg-like multinuclear cells expressing CD68 and Mac387 were also observed. The diagnosis of the case was T cell/histiocyte-rich large B-cell lymphoma. This rarely encountered neoplasm should be kept in mind in the differential diagnosis of primary gastric lymphomas. © 2016, Pakistan Medical Association. All rights reserved Daha fazlası Daha az

Hydatidiform moles are abnormal conceptions characterised by atypical hyperplastic trophoblasts and hydropic villi. Their incidence is approximately 1 in 1000 pregnancies. The recurrence risk of hydatidiform mole is approximately 1 in 60 in a subsequent pregnancy and 1 in 6.5 in the third pregnancy. In cases with recurrence, the majority of moles are of the same type as that in the preceding pregnancy. Here, we describe the case of a recurrent partial hydatidiform mole after an initial healthy pregnancy. Both pregnancies were evacuated by suction curettage, and the patient was followed by serial monitoring of ß-human chorionic gonad . . .otropin levels. Recurrent molar pregnancy is not an indication for chemotherapy, and subsequent pregnancies do not have an increased risk for other obstetric complications Daha fazlası Daha az
