BACKGROUND Struma testis is a rare entity, and there are only few reports on the malignant transformation of a testicular teratoma to papillary thyroid carcinoma in the literature.

Atypical and anaplastic meningiomas can be aggressive, show more rapid growth, and a greater propensity to recur following resection. General consensus believes that genetic abnormalities leading to anaplastic transformation are present at initial tumor presentation; however,(More)
Pectus carinatum and excavatum have multiple genetic associations. We report on a novel association of these deformities in a 34-month-old male and his father, likely due to a small intragenic deletion of MNAT1 (ménage a trois 1 gene). Both individuals share a deletion of MNAT1 located at 14q23.1 and an interstitial duplication of CHRNA7 located at 15q13.3.(More)
