Haematogenous skeletal muscle metastases from non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) are rare, and are even more uncommonly observed bilaterally. Usually, NSCLC metastasizes to the liver, adrenal glands, lung, bone, central nervous system and kidney. We report a case of a long-surviving patient with contemporaneous histologically proven bilateral muscle(More)
It was the objective to determine in this retrospective study whether thymidylate synthase (TS), p53, bcl-2, Ki-67 and p27 in Dukes' stage B and stage C (AJCC/UICC stage II and III) colorectal adenocarcinoma were predictive of disease-free survival (DFS) and overall survival (OS). Paraffin-embedded specimens from 103 patients with colorectal cancer, treated(More)
The presence of an adrenal gland nodule may be an early or late sign of metastatic spread from colorectal cancer. It usually appears when the internal malignancy is widely disseminated and has been previously diagnosed. Adrenal insufficiency can be compatible with bilateral and diffuse involvement of this uncommon site of disease. Although a surgical(More)
A neurogenic sarcoma without NF-1 was discovered in a 73-year-old woman in the anorectal region, an unusual site for these tumors. The tumor was of high-grade malignancy and deeply located with mesorectal infiltration; it did not originate from a major nerve. We presume an origin from less differentiated neural crest cells and present a review of the(More)
