21/38. sarcoma of the vagina an unusual cytologic diagnosis.

    The reported case, exceptional in our oncological material, illustrates the cytologica features of sarcoma of the vagina. We believe that the diagnosis of sarcoma of the cervix or other parts of the female genital system is not difficult providing that the tumor is exfoliating cells. Sarcomatous cells should not be mistaken either with those from keratininzing epitheliomas with desquamated fiber cells or snake cells. Such differentiation should not be a problem for an experienced cytologst. In spite of the low frequency of this malignancy, the microscopical appearance of the cells is so different from the cells of routine gynecological material that when present we should, at least, suspect a sarcoma.

22/38. Stage II papillary clear cell adenocarcinoma of the vagina during observation in a diethylstilbestrol-exposed daughter.

    Although many cases of diethylstilbestrol (DES)-associated clear cell adenocarcinoma (CCA) of the cervix and vagina have occurred, few have arisen in patients whose initial gynecologic evaluation has revealed only nonmalignant DES-related changes. We report a case of a 32-year-old lady who developed a stage II CCA after 8 years of thorough gynecologic examinations. This case substantiates the need for long-term gynecologic assessment in DES daughters.

23/38. A suprapubic retroperitoneal operative approach to solitary paravaginal tumors.

    Five cases of paravaginal tumors including a neurolemmoma, neurofibroma, lipoma, and desmoid tumors are presented. These tumors were approached through a modified Cherney incision. The rectus muscle was removed from the pubic symphysis and the pubococcygeus muscle was divided. This approach allowed good visualization of the paravaginal space, reasonable blood loss, and avoidance of entry into the peritoneal cavity. Although paravaginal tumors are rare, gynecologic surgeons should be aware of the suprapubic approach to the paravaginal space.

24/38. Photodynamic therapy of gynecologic neoplasms after presensitization with hematoporphyrin derivative.

    Five patients with various gynecologic neoplasms were treated with photodynamic therapy using 630-nm light delivered from an argon dye laser system following the intravenous injection of hematoporphyrin derivative (HpD). A patient with multifocal squamous cell cancer of the vagina had no evidence of disease 15 months after her first photodynamic therapy treatment. autopsy nine months after the first treatment of another patient with multifocal invasive cancer of the vagina and parametrium showed no evidence of tumor on the surface of the vagina. Eight months after treatment of an 8 X 12 cm area of bowen's disease of the vulva and thigh, there was no evidence of disease. Vaginal bleeding from breast cancer metastatic to the endometrium was controlled by one treatment until the patient expired five months later from her disease. adenocarcinoma metastatic to the vaginal cuff showed partial response when vaginectomy was performed five weeks after photodynamic therapy.

25/38. female genital tumors associated with human papillomavirus infection, and the concept of genital neoplasm-papilloma syndrome (GENPS).

    With the recent development of new analytic methods, notably the dna hybridization technique, many benign and malignant gynecologic tumors including carcinoma in situ, verrucous carcinoma and some invasive carcinomas of the vulva, the vagina and the cervix are found to be associated with human papillomavirus infection. Benign warts and multiple neoplasms frequently appear synchronously or metachronously in a single patient, and thus present as the genital neoplasm-papilloma syndrome (GENPS). Various methods of human papillomavirus identification and a spectrum of benign and malignant female genital tumors proven to contain human papillomavirus are reviewed and summarized.

26/38. Verrucous squamous cell carcinoma of the female genital tract. Report of three cases and survey of the literature.

    Three new cases of gynecological verrucous squamous cell carcinomas are reported; one in the uterine cervix, and two in the vulva. The English literature covering the 49 cases reported previously is surveyed with special reference to the diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of these tumors, as well as with their clinical behavior and possible relationship to viral (HPV) lesions (Condylomas) of the genital tract. It was concluded that so far the exact relationship between the different verrucous squamous cell lesions in the genital tract remains obscure, all such lesions should be regarded as potentially malignant, and treated accordingly by radical surgery.

27/38. Immediate vaginal reconstruction following resection for malignancy using the gluteal thigh flap.

    Immediate flap closure of perineal defects following extirpative procedures for gynecologic malignancies is highly desirable. Advantages include more rapid healing, reduced infection rate, decreased nutritional demands, early rehabilitation, greater safety in radiated fields, and more functional results. The posterior thigh flap, deriving its blood supply from the inferior gluteal artery, was used in 7 patients (9 flaps) with excellent results. The flap has proven reliable and quite feasible at the time of resection. While most partial pelvic or vaginal defects can be reconstructed with a single flap, bilateral flaps are recommended for more extensive defects. The major postoperative problem has been discomfort while sitting and paresthesias along the distribution of the posterior cutaneous nerve. To avoid these problems, the flap should be rotated distal to the ischium and, in subtotal reconstruction, the nerve excluded.

28/38. Chlamydial proctitis--unusual presentation as a symptomatic vaginal mass.

    Chlamydial cervicitis and salpingitis are being increasingly diagnosed and reported, but chlamydial proctitis is an unusual problem to be found in gynecologic practice. In the reported patient who gave a history of rectal intercourse and presented with a symptomatic vaginal mass, a diagnosis of chlamydial proctitis was made on the basis of biopsy histology, specific monoclonal antibody-immunoperoxidase chlamydia assay, and response to doxycycline therapy.

29/38. Vulvar and vaginal melanoma. A clinicopathologic study.

    melanoma of the vulva is uncommon, and melanoma of the vagina is rare. The overall prognosis is poor and worse than for cutaneous melanomas. This appears to relate to diagnosis of genital lesions at an advanced stage. In a 28-year, retrospective analysis at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center, there were 10 cases of primary melanoma of the lower genital tract. Seven cases of vulvar melanoma and three cases of vaginal melanoma were reviewed. All cases were in elderly women, and all were diagnosed at an advanced stage. The outcome in general was poor, regardless of therapy. This condition must be recognized earlier to afford an optimal patient outcome. Elderly women must undergo regular gynecologic care, and suspicious pigmented lesions must be biopsied.

30/38. Metastatic signet ring carcinoma of the breast as a source of positive cervicovaginal cytology. A case report.

    The cellular manifestations of extrauterine cancer have been well documented. While finding metastatic carcinoma in gynecologic specimens should not be unexpected, descriptions of certain types of neoplasms are not well represented in the cytology literature. We describe the clinical, cytopathologic and histologic features of a case of signet ring cell breast carcinoma metastatic to the uterine cervix. Signet ring cell breast carcinoma is a rare neoplasm, and its possible histogenesis is discussed.
