Disease relevance of Cystadenoma, Mucinous


High impact information on Cystadenoma, Mucinous

  • The site of gastrin production in this example was a mucinous cystadenoma of the ovary confirmed by immunoperoxidase localization of gastrin within the ovarian tumor cells and by radioimmunoassay of the tumor's gastrin content [6].
  • A Japanese woman had a mucinous cystadenoma of the left ovary associated with very high serum levels of CA19-9 (3170 u/ml) and CA125 (1705 u/ml) [7].
  • Our findings indicate that RELP serves as a marker for appendiceal mucinous cystadenomas and PMP, and that RELP may contribute to the pathogenesis of these disorders [8].
  • It is often difficult to discriminate GDC from pancreatic cystic tumour, in particular pancreatic mucinous cystadenoma, in which concentrations of carcinoembryonic antigen and CA 19-9 are classically raised [9].
  • The microscopic and immunohistochemical patterns of the epithelium from the transitional zone between colonic wall-like structure and mucinous cystadenoma demonstrated features of both types of epithelium, positive for both CK7 and CK20, and focally positive for a neuroendocrine marker, chromogranin, which is normally present in colonic mucosa [10].
