The impact of pregnancy in the physiopathology of pregnancy-associated breast cancer (PABC) is still unclear. We compared the characteristics of PABCs and breast cancers not associated with pregnancy (non-PABCs) in terms of their loco-regional invasion and histological phenotype. We conducted a retrospective chart review on women less than 43 years of age(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to determine the chemosensitivity of pregnancy-associated breast cancer (PABC) in the neoadjuvant setting by comparing the observed pathological complete response (pCR) rate with the rate predicted by a validated nomogram. METHODS Data from 48 PABC patients who received neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) were collected.(More)
Deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE) affects several anatomical locations including the bladder, torus uterinum, uterosacral ligament, rectovaginal septum and bowel. It is the most debilitating form of endometriosis and causes severe pain, digestive and urinary symptoms as well as infertility. Faced with an infertile woman suffering from DIE, the dilemma(More)
The occurrence of pregnancy-associated breast cancer (PABC) is rare but increasing. Its management is challenging: to treat the patient without compromising fetal prognosis. Usually, PABC is diagnosed at a more advanced stage compared to non-pregnant patients of the same age. The diagnostic approach should fit with the recommendations for nonpregnant women(More)
OBJECTIVE To illustrate and determine the significance of abnormal Sylvian fissure development (or abnormal operculization) in cases in which prenatal cerebral imaging is suggestive of underlying cortical dysplasia. METHODS This was a retrospective study of 15 fetuses at 24-34 weeks in which abnormal operculization was identified on prenatal cerebral(More)
The co-occurrence of cancer and pregnancy is a rare clinical situation (1/1000 pregnancies), with breast cancer being the most frequent solid tumour in pregnant patients [1]. Recent clinical data indicate that systemic treatment in breast cancer patients during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy should be as close as possible to that used in(More)
BACKGROUND Considering the remarkable efficacy of the strategies for preventing mother-to-child transmission of HIV infection (PMTCT), failures are rare in high-resource countries and deserve further investigation. Moreover, infants have been found to be at increased risk of viral failure. We analyzed the factors related to the children's environment,(More)
The rate of CIN discovered during pregnancy is around 1%. Pregnancy should be a period for the checking of pap-smear. So a pap-smear should be performed if the last one is more than two years old. If the pap-smear is less than two years old, a copy of its result should be obtained. The cervical cytology is valid during pregnancy, and usually pregnancy(More)
A malignant tumour during pregnancy is a rare event. Breast, gyneacologic and skin cancers and haematologic malignancies are the most frequent tumours. Facing this situation, the practitioner has to solve several issues: choosing the most efficient treatment and therapeutic sequence and optimallymanaging the pregnancy. The complexity of these clinical(More)
BACKGROUND There is no consensual definition of diminished ovarian reserve and the best therapeutic strategy has not yet been demonstrated. METHODS We performed a retrospective study to evaluate outcomes following a first in-vitro fertilization/intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (IVF/ICSI) cycle in young women with diminished ovarian reserve. Women with(More)
