The auscultatory features typical of myxoma were absent in a patient with nonprolapsing left atrial myxoma. Angiocardiographic and echocardiographic findings including B-mode cross-sectional scanning are presented.

    Background: Transformation of a cystic benign teratoma of the ovary into a "carcinosarcoma" has very rarely been reported and its histogenetic origin is still debated. Case presentation: A case of carcinosarcoma arising from a dermoid cyst is reported. The tumor showed cystic areas delimited by...

    Background: In most phase I oncology trials, it is often stated that the dose increments follow a "modified- Fibonacci sequence". This term, however, is vague. Methods: To better characterize this sequence, we reviewed 81 phase I trials based on this concept. Results: Out of 198 phase I oncology...

    Endometrial cancer is the most common gynecologic malignancy in the developed world. Most cases are diagnosed at an early stage and have low-grade histology, portending an overall excellent prognosis. There exists a subgroup of patients with early, high-risk disease, whose management remains...

    To investigate the imaging appearance of well-differentiated hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) on dynamic CT, a total of 38 histopathologically proven well-differentiated HCC were included in a retrospective study. We reviewed the contrast-enhanced dynamic CT of all 38 tumours for attenuation of...

    NUT midline carcinoma (NMC) is a rare and aggressive malignant epithelial tumor defined by rearrangement of the NUT gene on chromosome 15. In two thirds of cases, NUT is involved in a balanced translocation with BDR4 on chromosome 19, while in the remaining cases, NUT is rearranged with variant...
