Breast Cancer during Pregnancy: A Case Report and Literature Review

Hamidou Soumana Diaouga, Maimouna Chaibou Yacouba, Madeleine Garba Rahamatou, Nafiou Idi, Madi Nayama
Breast cancer is the most common and deadliest cancer in women. The association of breast cancer and pregnancy is relatively rare and has a poor prognosis due to often late diagnosis and a high potential for lymphatic dissemination. It poses many diagnostic, therapeutic, prognostic and psychological problems. We report a case of ductal carcinoma of the breast associated with pregnancy in a 27-year-old patient. The diagnosis was late as well as the care which began 4 weeks after delivery. Obstetr...

The Breast Enriched HER2 Molecular Subtype-Like Salivary Duct Carcinoma: A Good Response to Novel Targeted Therapy in Two Advanced Disease Cases

Kien Hung Do, Tu Anh Do, Duc Thanh Le, Tai Van Nguyen, Chu Van Nguyen
Background: Salivary duct carcinoma (SDC) is one of the most aggressive malignant salivary gland tumors resembling high-grade mammary ductal carcinoma, with frequent local recurrence and regional lymph node and distant metastasis. SDC is often the absence of estrogen receptor and progesterone receptor, and Her2/neu overexpression. Treatment with molecular targeted therapy correlated well with long-term survival and therapeutic response in SDC patients. Purpose: We presented the clinicopathologic...

Clinical Case: We report a case of a 62-year-old man operated on for a tumor of the cecum, which was diagnosed as a high-grade neuroendocrine carcinoma. An immunohistochemical study showed positive marking with synaptophysin. No cancer metastasis was found. Postoperative chemotherapy was applied but the patient died after ...

Pott’s puffy tumour is a subperiosteal abscess of the frontal bone with osteomyelitis which has become rare because of the widespread use of antibiotics [1]. It is usually seen as a complication of frontal sinusitis [2]. Here we report a case of Pott’s puffy tumour (PPT) in a 71-year-old man who visited the accident & emergency department with painful swelling of the forehead but with no reported antecedent history of any symptoms of rhinitis or sinusitis.

A Novel Strategy for Preventing and Treating Cancer: Alteration of Cancer-Associated Chromatin Configuration

Gao-De Li
The hallmarks of cancer are determined by cancer-associated gene expression pattern that is determined by cancer-associated chromatin configuration (CACC). Using non-carcinogenic genotoxic drugs (NCGDs) to alter CACC could change cancer-associated gene expression pattern, which in turn, might cause disappearance of some or whole hallmarks of cancer and as a result, cancer cells could be killed by either apoptosis or immune destruction. Therefore, cancer could be prevented and treated by administ...
