OBJECTIVES To investigate the association between insulin-resistance-related conditions (comprising the metabolic syndrome) and endometrial cancer risk in Chinese women. METHODS We conducted a large case-control study including 942 endometrial cancers and 1721 controls on a Chinese population. The relative endometrial cancer risks from various factors(More)
AIM To evaluate the safety of ovarian preservation at the time of operation in clinical stage I endometrial carcinoma. MATERIAL AND METHODS   The data of patients with and without coexisting ovarian cancers were retrospectively collected and clinic-pathologic parameters were analyzed. RESULTS In total, 20 (2.05%) were histologically diagnosed as(More)
The female genital tract is a rare site for angioleiomyoma. Here, we present an unusual case of bilateral large angioleiomyoma in the broad ligaments. A 52-year-old woman underwent total hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy due to massive tumors in the bilateral adnexal regions. Gross examination revealed a hemangioma-like mass each in the(More)
Gestational trophoblastic neoplasms are a group of fetal trophoblastic tumors including choriocarcinomas, epithelioid trophoblastic tumors (ETTs), and placental site trophoblastic tumors (PSTTs). Mixed gestational trophoblastic neoplasms are extremely rare. The existence of mixed gestational trophoblastic neoplasms that were composed of choriocarcinoma(More)
Notch signaling was recently found to be associated with prognosis of some cancers. The aim of the study is to investigate significance of the expression of HES1/HES5 protein, downstream effectors of Notch, in prognosis of the patients with advanced ovarian epithelial cancers. Formalin-fixed, paraffin embedded tissues and clinic-pathological parameters from(More)
The objective of this study is to evaluate the clinicopathological features and immunohistochemical characteristics of epithelioid trophoblastic tumor (ETT). Seven cases of epithelioid trophoblastic tumor treated in the Women's Hospital of Zhejiang University from 2004 September to 2008 December were retrospectively analyzed. Immunohistochemical study was(More)
Regenerating islet-deprived gene family, number 4 (REG4), is a novel marker for intestinal differentiation. We performed immunohistochemical studies on REG4, cytokeratin (CK)7, CK20, and caudal type homeobox 2 (CDX2) in 291 ovarian mucinous tumors. There were 226 primary tumors and 65 metastatic tumors. The primary tumors comprised 69/226 mucinous(More)
We report a case of a 30-year-old woman who had complained of lower abdominal distension. She was noted to have a history of primary mucinous tumor of the left ovary (13.2 × 9.9 × 10.4 cm) that was removed surgically. Two years later she developed the same tumor on her left ovary (8.7 × 6.0 × 6.9 cm) and also had appendiceal mucinous tumor accompanied with(More)
Epithelioid trophoblastic tumor (ETT) is a rare trophoblastic tumor originating from chorionic-type intermediate trophoblasts (ITs). It is usually associated with a prior gestational event. We present a 44-year-old woman who had unusual pregnancy related history. The patient received her second spontaneous abortion at the age of 25 years and had suffered(More)
Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) is widely used to treat patients with locally advanced cervical cancer. Optimal pathological response to neoadjuvant therapy has proven to be a good prognostic indicator for patient survival, but the prognostic significance of a partial response remains unclear. The aim of this study was to identify prognostic predictors for(More)
