A 56 year-old woman (treated for ovarian cystadenocarcinoma 9-yrs before) presented a slowly increasing dyspnea. CT-scan revealed a mediastinal cyst with typical radiological pattern compatible with benign pleuro-pericardial cyst. The cyst was removed via right thoracoscopy. Surprisingly, the pathology were indicative of cystic mediastinal recurrence from ovarian adenocarcinoma.

Currently, laparoscopic cystectomy is the first-line therapy for ovarian benign cysts that are resistant to current therapies. There are different studies that point to ovarian reserve damage due to laparoscopic cystectomy. In this study, we evaluate the ovarian damage following laparoscopic cystectomy for non-endometriosis cysts using ultrasound and pathology findings. ...

In the germarium of polytrophic ovarioles of Calliphora erythrocephala (Mg.) fly, four mitotic divisions of cystoblasts give rise to 16-cell germ-line cysts. One cell differentiates into an oocyte, while the remaining 15 cells become nurse cells. Concomitantly actin-rich ring canals are formed at the intercellular junctions. The present study considers ...

Appendiceal adenocarcinoma (AACa) is a rare tumour which represents 0.5% of all gastrointestinal malignancies. The prognosis is poor, because it is usually found at an advanced stage, that in turn, is partly due to a low threshold of suspicion and difficulties in diagnosis prior to surgery. It may occasionally demonstrate ...

The brine shrimp, Artemia, reproduces either ovoviviparously, producing free-swimming nauplii, or oviparously, producing encysted embryos (diapause cysts) able to cope with harsh and complex habitats. When the cysts enter diapause they are encased in a complex external shell that protects them from certain extreme environments. The genomic comparison of oviparous ...

Metastatic malignancy represents a common cause of effusions. Immunocytochemistry (ICC) is useful in confirming malignancy and gaining insight into the site of origin. Cell blocks are commonly utilized for this purpose; nonetheless, when the malignant cells are sparse, they may not be represented in cell blocks thereby precluding immunophenotypic characterization. ...
