OBJECTIVE Endometrial cancer mortality disproportionately affects black women and whether greater prevalence of obesity plays a role in this disparity is unknown. We examine the effect of race on post-surgical complications, length of stay, and mortality specifically in a morbidly obese population. METHODS Black and white women with endometrial cancer(More)
CONTEXT -Low interobserver diagnostic agreement exists among high-grade endometrial carcinomas. OBJECTIVE -To evaluate diagnostic variability in International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) grade 3 endometrioid adenocarcinoma (G3EC) in 2 different sign-out practices. DESIGN -Sixty-six G3EC cases were identified from pathology archives of(More)
Granulosa cell tumors (GCTs) comprise 2% to 5% of ovarian neoplasms, with unpredictable patterns of recurrence. The HER family, GATA4, and SMAD3 genes are reportedly involved in GCT proliferation and apoptosis and may serve as new predictors of recurrence. The aim of the study was to evaluate novel predictors of recurrence in GCT from a large single(More)
OBJECTIVES Clear cell carcinoma (CCC) comprises a rare yet an aggressive subtype, accounting for less than 5% of all uterine carcinomas. Several clinicopathologic features have been predictive of poor prognosis; however, data remain controversial. The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinicopathologic features of a multi-institutional cohort of(More)
Paratesticular liposarcomas are relatively common sarcomas in the paratesticular region, however, the myxoid variant; myxoid liposarcoma (MLS) is considered very rare. MLS peaks around the fourth-fifth decade. Herein, we describe a case of paratesticular MLS occurring in a 19-year-old African American male who underwent resection of a slowly growing(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES To examine association of lympho-vascular space invasion (LVSI) with clinico-pathological factors and to evaluate survival of women with low-grade serous ovarian carcinoma containing areas of LVSI. METHODS This is a multicenter retrospective study examining consecutive cases of surgically treated stage I-IV low-grade serous(More)
The incidence of endometrial cancers diagnosed on biopsy that have no residual cancer identified at hysterectomy is not well studied. The aim of our study was to determine the incidence and long-term follow-up of this "vanishing cancer" phenomenon. All slides from the initial biopsy/curettage and hysterectomy specimens were reviewed and the diagnosis(More)
Endometrial carcinomas (ECs) are the most common gynecologic cancers in the western world. The impact of androgen receptor (AR) on clinicopathologic parameters of EC is not well studied. The aim of our study is to assess the role of AR expression in ECs and correlate its expression with estrogen (ER) and progesterone (PR). A retrospective review of 261 EC(More)
