1. HMGA2 rearrangement in a case of vulvar aggressive angiomyxoma.
Match Strength: 6.751
The histogenesis of aggressive angiomyxoma, an uncommon mesenchymal neoplasm of the vulvar, pelvic, and perineal soft tissues, is poorly understood, although the neoplastic cells exhibit a myofibroblastic phenotype. Cytogenetic studies of aggressive angiomyxoma are scarce; however, a nonrandom involvement of the 12q15 region where the high mobility group (HMG) protein HMGA2, an architectural transcription factor expressed primarily during embryogenesis, is located has been suggested. HMGA2 involvement has also been described in a variety of benign gynecologic mesenchymal neoplasms. We report ... Read More »

2. Incidental carcinomas in prophylactic specimens in BRCA1 and BRCA2 germ-line mutation carriers, with emphasis on fallopian tube lesions: report of 6 cases and review of the literature.
Match Strength: 6.694
The identification of germ-line mutations in 2 genes (BRCA1 and BRCA2) responsible for the majority of hereditary ovarian cancers has led an increasing number of women carriers of these mutations to undergo prophylactic oophorectomy (PO) to reduce their risk of subsequent ovarian carcinoma. A large number of unexpected, clinically occult neoplasms are thus being discovered. Up to December 2004, the Medical Genetics Service of the National Cancer Institute in Milan, Italy, has tested 756 probands from breast and/or ovarian cancer families for BRCA1 and BRCA2 germ-line mutations. Molecular ... Read More »
