1/635. Reducing the error rate in Papanicolaou smears. One laboratory's experience with the PAPNET system.

    False-negative Papanicolaou smears not only endanger the patient's life, but may also lead to legal problems for the clinician. The PAPNET interactive computerized system has been shown to reduce the false-negative rate in the author's laboratory, and disclosed the presence of atypical or cancerous cells in prior false-negative smears in a number of patients with invasive carcinoma.

2/635. Invasive cervical cancer after laser vaporization for cervical intraepithelial neoplasia: a 10-year experience.

    The treatment of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia by laser vaporization has been in progress at the Birmingham and Midland Hospital for women since September 1977. In this interval, 3182 patients have been treated. Seven women have developed invasive cancer at intervals 4-34 months postlaser. The lesions diagnosed were stage Ia (3), Ib (1), IIb (1), IIIa (1), and IV (1). These case histories are presented. On retrospective assessment, there were contraindications to local destructive treatment in six of seven cases. This series emphasizes the need for thorough evaluation of patients before embarking on local destructive treatments and emphasizes the need for careful follow-up of treated patients.

3/635. Rapid progression of squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix after hyperbaric oxygenation.

    The role of hyperbaric oxygenation in the treatment of radiation-induced sequelae and chronic ulcer is well established. On the contrary, a possible cancer-causing or growth-enhancing effect by hyperbaric oxygenation was highly controversial. Herein, we present a 55-year-old Chinese woman with recurrent squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix on her left inguinal area. She received concurrent chemoradiation therapy followed by radical inguinal lymphadenectomy due to persistent tumor mass. The patient was complicated with severe radiation fibrosis and unhealed wounds, so she was treated with hyperbaric oxygenation (HBO). However, the patient died of complications of the disease after completing HBO therapy I month later and autopsy of the patient showed carcinomatosis of the abdominal cavity and lower abdominal wall. Because previous studies have been inconclusive regarding the effect of HBO on tumor cells, we reviewed the possible relation between the HBO and tumor cells.

4/635. Intra-abdominal angiosarcomatosis after radiotherapy.

    BACKGROUND: We report a case of a 61-year-old Japanese woman who developed intra-abdominal angiosarcomatosis 20 years after receiving radiotherapy for squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix. methods AND RESULTS: The surgically resected portion of the ileum showed diffuse proliferating angiosarcoma, with irregular channels lined by atypical vascular endothelial cells. Immunohistochemical studies showed that the tumour cells were positive for factor viii-related antigen and ulex europaeus agglutinin 1. At autopsy, the tumour had disseminated to the peritoneum and invaded into the right thoracic cavity. CONCLUSIONS: These findings were compatible with radiation-induced angiosarcomatosis.

5/635. An unusual cervical carcinoma showing exception to epitheliotropism of human papillomavirus.

    Human papillomaviruses (HPV) infect epithelial tissues but have not been previously detected within mesenchymal cells. During a systematic investigation of FIGO stage Ib cervical cancers with colorimetric in situ hybridization, we detected HPV 16 dna within the stromal compartment of an unusual undifferentiated carcinoma. The mesenchymal nature of the HPV-containing cells was confirmed by immunohistochemistry and electron microscopy. No viral particles were identified. Sequencing the majority of the HPV 16 genome identified few changes from the revised reference clone; all previously reported in other HPV 16 variants. These viral changes are unlikely to explain the exceptional mesenchymal localization of the HPV 16 dna in this case.

6/635. Pulmonary tumor embolism presenting as infarcts on computed tomography.

    Pulmonary tumor embolism is a rare cause of respiratory failure in patients with cancer and is only infrequently diagnosed during life. Chest radiographs are usually normal. Dilated and beaded peripheral pulmonary arteries may be present on computed tomography scans. The authors describe an unusual case of pulmonary tumor embolism presenting on computed tomography scans as bilateral, peripheral, wedge-shaped opacities. On autopsy, these opacities corresponded to areas of pulmonary infarction.

7/635. Abnormal uterine bleeding as a presenting sign of metastases to the uterine corpus, cervix and vagina in a breast cancer patient on tamoxifen therapy.

    Metastases to the female genital tract from extragenital cancers are uncommon. The ovaries are most often affected with the breast and gastrointestinal tract being the most common sites of the primary malignancy. Metastases to the uterus from extragenital cancers are significantly rarer than metastases to the ovaries and in the majority of cases the ovaries are also involved. A case of metastases restricted to the uterine corpus, cervix and vagina from breast carcinoma, without involvement of the ovaries, is described. The patient who had been on tamoxifen therapy presented with postmenopausal bleeding. The diagnosis of uterine metastases was established during endometrial ablation and confirmed by total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. This case illustrates that abnormal uterine bleeding in a breast cancer patient, regardless of whether she is receiving or not receiving tamoxifen, should always alert the physician to consider the possibility of uterine metastases from breast carcinoma.

8/635. granuloma inguinale simulating advanced pelvic cancer.

    This paper describes a case of multiple disease in an Aboriginal woman. granuloma inguinale, of unusual severity and extent, which closely simulated advanced pelvic malignant disease, was included. Some problems of the diagnosis are discussed.

9/635. Special problems in cervical cancer management.

    Cervical cancer is easily recognized when it presents as a visible lesion, but a problem arises when it adopts unusual presentations. Cervical cancer can develop high in the endocervical canal, beyond the reach of cone biopsy. Copious vaginal discharge from cervical adenocarcinoma may lead to a false-negative Papanicolaou (Pap) smear. Treatment of cervicitis can result in a delay in diagnosis. Successful and timely diagnosis and treatment of cervical cancer requires experience and vigilance. Careful intraoperative palpation of the cervix and uterus can help determine the location and extent of the lesion. Flexibility during surgery is required to utilize intraoperative findings and thus optimize treatment. Pitfalls of cervical cancer diagnosis and treatment with actual case presentations are presented along with other special problems in cervical cancer management such as incidental findings of cervical cancer in hysterectomy specimens, treatment of cervical stump cancers, and unusual cervical cancer cell types.

10/635. Surgical resection of a cerebral metastasis from cervical cancer: case report and review of the literature.

    AIMS AND BACKGROUND: central nervous system metastasis from cervical carcinoma is uncommon. CASE REPORT: We report the case of a 51-year-old woman who developed a solitary cerebral metastasis 29 months after radical hysterectomy with pelvic lymphadenectomy for a stage IB, grade III cervical cancer. The patient suddenly complained of headache, confusion and dizziness; she was submitted to emergency surgical resection of a 2 x 3 cm metastasis in the right frontal lobe. The postoperative course was uneventful and she completely recovered from her neurological deficit. Following surgery the patient underwent careful restaging. Massive bilateral involvement of the pelvic wall was diagnosed, and the patient received three courses of cisplatin-based chemotherapy. She developed liver and lung metastases and died 10 months later of progressive disseminated disease, without, however, any sign of recurrent or persistent cerebral involvement. CONCLUSION: Neurosurgical resection should be considered in cervical cancer patients with solitary brain metastasis in the absence of systemic disease.
