1/39. Endometroid adenocarcinoma of the cervix in a 9-year-old girl.

    We present the first reported case of endometroid adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix in a young girl. The differential diagnosis of a vaginal mass in this age group is usually rhabdomyosarcoma, although other, rarer tumours also occur.

2/39. rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) of the uterine cervix in two Ethiopian patients: case report.

    Most rhabdomyosarcomas (RMS) of the female genital tract occur in infants and young children as sarcoma botryoides. To our knowledge, RMS of the cervix has never been reported in ethiopia. Two patients with RMS of cervix in their second and third decades of life were seen in a short period of time span at Tikur Anbessa Hospital in the first half of 1996. Difficulties were encountered in reaching a diagnosis and appropriately managing the patients which necessitated the revision of previous biopsy result especially in the first patient. Both presented clinically with bloody vaginal discharge and cervical mass. RMS of the cervix deserves attention in a young patient with cervical mass and bloody vaginal discharge. The excised tissue should be subjected to histopathologic study. Treatment with polychemotherapy and/or radiation in addition to aggressive surgical approach should be made available to obtain good results.

3/39. Sarcoma botryoides of the cervix. Report of a case with cytopathologic findings.

    BACKGROUND: Cytologic findings of sarcoma botryoides were still equivocal because sarcoma botryoides of the uterine cervix is an extremely rare neoplasm, and few cases have been reported to date. CASE: A 17-year-old female was diagnosed with sarcoma botryoides of the uterine cervix. The entire vaginal canal was occupied with polypoid masses, which arose from the anterior lip of the uterine cervix, and the tumor was classified as group I (Intergroup rhabdomyosarcoma Study). After wedge resection and six courses of combination chemotherapy, the tumor recurred in the same location of the cervix as the primary lesion. touch smear of the polypoid mass formed loose clusters and also showed short spindle cells in a necrotic background. The nucleus of the tumor cells had a thin nuclear membrane, fine chromatin pattern and partly clear nucleolus, showing mild nuclear atypia. Immunohistochemically, some of the tumor cells showed positive staining for myoglobin and desmin. CONCLUSION: The cytologic findings of sarcoma botryoides of the female genital tract are typical features of nonepithelial malignant tumor. Immunohistochemical study is useful for the diagnosis of rhabdomyosarcoma.

4/39. Bronchorrhea revealing cervix adenocarcinoma metastastic to the lung.

    Copious bronchorrhea can be related to bronchioloalveolar carcinoma, but reports of bronchorrhea related to lung metastasis are rare. We report the case of a woman presenting lung metastases of a cervical adenocarcinoma revealed by bronchorrhea, eventually identified as ectopic cervical mucus. Treatment included anticancer drugs and erythromycin, the latter in order to reduce the bronchorrhea, with eventually poor efficacy. This observation illustrates the importance of respiratory signs in the post-therapeutic follow up of cancer, especially cough and bronchorrhea in adenocarcinoma.

5/39. Sarcoma botryoides of the uterine cervix in a young woman: a case report.

    Among the rhabdomyosarcomas, which represent an uncommon neoplasm of mesoderm origin comprising about 1% of all female genital malignancies, sarcoma botryoides (SB) is an embrional variant usually found in the vagina of infants and young children under 16 years of age. The onset of SB from the uterine cervix is very rare with a peak incidence in the second decade; only a few cases have been published in the international literature so far. The authors report a case of embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma of the uterine cervix which occurred in a young woman treated by radical surgery, followed by adjuvant chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

6/39. Two cases of metastases to the breast on MR mammography.

    We report appearance of two cases of metastases to the breast on MR mammography. Metastasis from cervical cancer displayed a hypointense tumor with a central area of high signal intensity on T2-weighted images and rapid annular enhancement with persistent central contrast enhancement. The metastases from rhabdomyosarcoma were characterized by multiple tumors with high signal intensity on T2-weighted images and fast annular contrast enhancement. We show unusual malignant breast lesions for possible identification in dynamic MR mammography.

7/39. Protruding giant cervical polyp in a young adolescent with a previous rhabdomyosarcoma.

    Giant cervical polyps are rare entities, with only 8 reported cases in the international literature (medline 1966-2002). Of these cases, only one has been described in the pediatric population. There has been no report of a giant cervical polyp occurring in the older, although early, adolescent period. The discovery of a giant cervical polyp in a young adolescent is a gynecological oddity. The immense size of giant cervical polyps, together with their menacing appearance and unusual presentation, can simulate a malignant neoplasm. Care must be taken in their diagnosis and management so that the patient's fertility is not compromised. We report on a young adolescent girl with a previous history of a rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS), who presented with a giant cervical polyp protruding from the vaginal introitus. The literature on this entity is reviewed.

8/39. Anaplastic (pleomorphic) subtype embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma of the cervix.

    INTRODUCTION: Embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) of the female genital tract usually occurs in the vagina during childhood. In rare cases, RMS can originate in the uterine cervix, with an incidence peak in the second decade. Recent studies have suggested that it is possible to limit surgery to local excision in stage I cases. CASE REPORT: We present the case of a 13-year-old girl diagnosed with an anaplastic (pleomorphic) subtype embryonal RMS of the endocervix, who was treated successfully with polypectomy followed by ifosfamide-vincristine-actinomycin combination chemotherapy and brachytherapy. The patient exhibits no evidence of recurrence and has normal menstrual function 36 months following initial diagnosis.

9/39. Embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma of the uterine cervix: case report and review of the literature.

    OBJECTIVES: Sarcoma botryoides rarely arises in the uterine cervix. It usually presents in the adolescent age group. The peak incidence is in the second decade. A combined modality approach to treating rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) has markedly improved survival. We present two cases of cervical RMS. One of them had a very aggressive clinical course. CASE: Two cases of RMS in young women who presented with rapidly progressive cervical tumor are reported. They were treated with two-stage surgical procedure and chemotherapy. CONCLUSIONS: A combined modality approach to treating RMS using multidrug chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and surgery has markedly improved survival. One of our cases has been free of disease for more than 5 years.

10/39. Alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma of the cervix.

    BACKGROUND: Alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) has a high risk for local and distal failure. Multimodal management of a patient with alveolar RMS of the cervix uteri is outlined. CASE: A 39-year-old woman suffered from alveolar RMS of the cervix without involvement of uterus and parametrium. She was treated with total hysterectomy and left salpingo-oophorectomy. Systemic chemotherapy and pelvic irradiation were also offered. She remains in clinical remission 3 years after presentation. CONCLUSION: Postoperative chemotherapy and irradiation could be effective treatments for alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma of the cervix in adult patients.
