BACKGROUND Despite their low risk for recurrence, many women with endometrial adenocarcinoma receive postoperative radiation therapy (RT). This study was developed to determine if adjunctive external beam irradiation lowers the risk of recurrence and death in women with endometrial cancer International Federation of Gynaecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) stages(More)
Oncogenic osteomalacia (OO) is a rare paraneoplastic syndrome of osteomalacia due to phosphate wasting. The phosphaturic mesenchymal tumor (mixed connective tissue variant) (PMTMCT) is an extremely rare, distinctive tumor that is frequently associated with OO. Despite its association with OO, many PMTMCTs go unrecognized because they are erroneously(More)
The terminology for human papillomavirus (HPV)-associated squamous lesions of the lower anogenital tract has a long history marked by disparate diagnostic terms derived from multiple specialties. It often does not reflect current knowledge of HPV biology and pathogenesis. A consensus process was convened to recommend terminology unified across lower(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to evaluate the benefits and risk of adjuvant pelvic radiotherapy aimed at reducing recurrence in women with Stage IB cervical cancer treated by radical hysterectomy and pelvic lymphadenectomy. METHODS Two hundred seventy-seven eligible patients were entered with at least two of the following risk factors: >1/3(More)
There were 732 evaluable patients with primary, previously untreated, histologically confirmed stage I squamous carcinoma of the cervix with greater than or equal to 3-mm invasion. Of these, 645 had no gross disease beyond the cervix/uterus, had negative paraaortic lymph nodes, and had undergone a radical hysterectomy with pelvic lymphadenectomy. The 3-year(More)
PURPOSE To investigate, in a phase III randomized trial, whether postoperative external-beam irradiation to the standard pelvic field improves the recurrence-free interval and overall survival (OS) in women with Stage IB cervical cancers with negative lymph nodes and certain poor prognostic features treated by radical hysterectomy and pelvic(More)
OBJECTIVES The coexistence of carcinomas of the endometrium and ovary occurs in about 10% of women with ovarian carcinoma. It is often unclear whether this represents synchronous primary tumors or metastasis from endometrium to ovary, or from ovary to endometrium; consequently, staging, therapy, and expected outcome are uncertain. The Gynecologic Oncology(More)
Various drug combinations including Adriamycin have been tested in soft tissue sarcomas, but optimal treatment remains unclear. We have evaluated Adriamycin with and without dimethyl-triazeno-imidazole-carboxamide (DTIC) in the treatment of Stage III or IV and recurrent sarcomas of the uterus. Two hundred and forty cases of these rare tumors were evaluable.(More)
Thirty-three institutions collaborating in the Gynecologic Oncology Group gathered surgical and pathological data on 1125 patients with primary, previously untreated, histologically confirmed stage I cervical carcinoma with more than 3 mm of invasion who were selected to undergo radical hysterectomy and paraaortic and pelvic lymphadenectomy. Of the 940(More)
OBJECTIVE Although the epidemiology of typical endometrial carcinomas (grades 1-2 endometrioid or Type I) is well established, less is known regarding higher grade endometrioid or non-endometrioid carcinomas (Type II). Within a large Gynecologic Oncology Group trial (GOG-210), which included central pathology review, we investigated the etiologic(More)
