  • Tele-Oral Oncology: Reinvigorating Telemedicine in Oral Cancer Care

    • Authors: Zaid H. Khoury, Ahmed S. Sultan
      Abstract: Introduction: In recent years, we have witnessed significant growth in the employment of technological advancements in health-care practices. These advancements have increased the practicality and utility of
      telemedicine applications. The aim of this focused review is to provide in-depth insights into the current state of telemedicine in oral oncology. Observations: Tele-oral oncology (TOO) is a rapidly emerging field and
      has provided new opportunities to transform oral cancer care into the 22nd century. This review will explore topics related to TOO as they pertain to consultation, oral cancer management in underserved areas, patient
      education and e-learning applications. Conclusion and Relevance: The utilisation of TOO is hindered by many challenges and this review addresses the potential limitations that prevent the integration of TOO in routine oral cancer care. A working model that circumvents the potential shortcomings of TOO is also proposed.

  • Skin Metastasis in Breast Cancer Patients; a Case Series

    • Authors: Sara Rehman, Muhammad Atif Naveed
      Abstract: Introduction: Breast cancer is the most common malignancy in women. It frequently metastasizes to bones, lungs and liver. Although rare, skin metastasis may also take place. It may also be the presenting feature of initial or recurrent breast cancer. The assessment of recurrent metastatic disease involving skin after mastectomy can be challenging because of the benign-appearing clinical presentation. The purpose of this case
      series was to explore the clinical and radiological presentation of skin metastasis in patients of breast cancer. Materials and Methods: This is a retrospective case series of breast cancer patients with skin lesions on chest and abdomen at the time of initial presentation, or post-treatment such as, after mastectomy or breast conservation therapy; who underwent various radiological investigations including mammography, ultrasound
      scan, computed tomography (CT) scan and magnetic resonance imaging from 1 May 2018 to 30 September 2019 at Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre, Pakistan. Results: A total of eight
      cases were identified, out of which seven were females. The most common presentation consisted of the presence of metastatic nodules which were seen in 62.5% (five out of eight) of the patients. Other features consisted of erythematous or plaque-like skin thickening on clinical examination, increased density with indistinct margins seen on a mammogram and diffuse oedematous changes in the skin with small irregular mass or infiltration into subcutaneous tissues were visualised on ultrasound and CT studies. Conclusion: Skin metastasis from breast cancer most commonly presents as nodules, although rarely they may present as plaques or diffuse skin thickening. Awareness of diverse manifestations of skin metastasis is of utmost importance in early diagnosis and management.

  • Histopathological Correlation Between Prostatic Adenocarcinoma in
           Transrectal Ultrasound Guided Biopsies and Radical Prostatectomy Specimens
           

    • Authors: Mohammad Faisal , Hina Tariq
      Abstract: Introduction: Differences in Gleason grade in transrectal ultrasonography (TRUS) biopsies and radical prostatectomy (RP) specimens are well documented in literature. Keeping in view the limitations of Gleason grading system, Epstein JI grade group system was introduced. Various other parameters also have a significant role in predicting the pathological stage, extraprostatic extension, status of surgical margins and metastatic disease in regional lymph nodes. RP is performed at limited centres in Pakistan. Till date, no comparison of the histopathological findings in 12-core TRUS and RP specimens had been performed at the national level. Our study is aimed at generating local data in this context. Materials and Methods: This was a crosssectional study and non-probability consecutive sampling was performed. It was conducted at Histopathology Department, Shifa International Hospital, Islamabad, from January 2008 to December 2014. Gleason scores of 20 RP specimens were compared to Gleason scores of TRUS biopsies of same patients. Concordance in Gleason score and grade groups with laterality, perineural invasion was also studied. Results: Out of 20 RP cases, 40% (n = 8) had a Gleason score of 6, 30% (n = 6) had score 7, 20% (n = 4) had score 8 and 15% (n = 3) had score 9. Compared to the TRUS biopsy, RP Gleason score was concordant in 11 cases (55%), higher in 7 cases (35%) and lower in 2 cases (10%). TRUS involvement was unilateral in 10 cases (50%) and bilateral in 10 cases (50%). However, bilateral involvement of RP specimen was seen in 14 cases (70%) and unilateral in 6 cases (30%). Thus, better tumour yield was observed in RP specimens i.e., bilateral involvement in RP specimens was found in additional 5 cases (25%). Perineural involvement was higher in RP specimen i.e., 12 cases (60%), compared to 5 cases (25%) in TRUS biopsies. Its concordance was significantly higher in those with Gleason score of equal to or more than 7 (83%) and low in score less than score 7 (17%). Conclusion: When comparing RP to initial TRUS biopsies, Gleason score was upgraded in 35% and downgraded in 10% of cases. Bilateral involvement in 25% of cases of RP specimens was underestimated as unilateral involvement in TRUS biopsies. Perineural involvement with high Gleason score was also seen.

  • Outcomes of Advanced Retinoblastoma Treated with Local Salvage Treatment;
           a Retrospective Case Series.

    • Authors: Palwasha Rehman, Saadiya Javed Khan
      Abstract: Introduction: Retinoblastoma (RB) is the most common intraocular malignancy arising from the developing retina and occurs in approximately one of every 15,000–20,000 births. With the introduction of the intraarterial
      chemotherapy (IAC), the 5-year overall survival of children with RB is 99%, though in low- and middle-income countries, it rarely exceeds 35% due to limited resources and lack of expertise. The aim of this study was to determine the outcome of local salvage in advanced RB. Materials and Methods: A retrospective analysis was conducted on children diagnosed with advanced RB that had local salvage therapy along with systemic chemotherapy from January 2015 to January 2018 at Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre, Lahore, Pakistan. Results: Fifteen patients were included in the study, among these 10 were male. The median age of presentation was 20 months (range 2–40 months). Among participants, 11 patients had bilateral RB. Fourteen patients received local control along with systemic chemotherapy. Relapse disease was seen in 12 patients and 2-year disease-free survival (DFS) was 20%. Conclusion: The results of the present study suggest that centres lacking the resources for IAC should treat advance cases of RB with an upfront or early enucleation.

  • Imaging Characteristics of Breast Lymphoma; a Case Series

    • Authors: Sara Rehman, Muhammad Atif Naveed, Javairia Aleem
      Abstract: Introduction: Breast involvement by lymphoma is rare. It can occur as a primary breast tumour or as an extranodal manifestation of the systemic disease. The imaging features of breast lymphoma (BL) are
      not characteristic. Biopsy is necessary for diagnosis due to non-specific imaging features. Materials and Methods: A retrospective electronic medical chart review was conducted of patients diagnosed with lymphoma
      of breast that underwent diagnostic radiological procedures (including mammography, ultrasound breast, computed tomography (CT) scan and positron emission tomography (PET/CT) scan from 1 July 2018 to 31 March 2019 at Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre, Pakistan. Results: Four patients were identified. On mammogram, the most common finding consisted of the presence of high-density masses with circumscribed or indistinct margins. On ultrasound, hypoechoic masses and indistinct diffuse infiltrative patterns were observed. PET/CT and CT were helpful in detecting extramammary sites of disease and for classifying the disease into primary or secondary BL. Conclusion: The early diagnosis of the BL is important. The radiologists should include lymphoma in the differential diagnosis when there is the absence of microcalcifications or spiculated margins on mammography and ultrasound.

  • Pulmonary Haemosiderosis Secondary to Hereditary Haemochromatosis; a Case
           Report

    • Authors: Waqas Jehangir, Alexander Karabachev, Elvira Umyarova
      Abstract: Introduction: Hereditary haemochromatosis (HH) is an autosomal recessive disease of increased intestinal absorption of iron, leading to accumulation in tissues which may progress to organ damage, most commonly in the liver. Iron deposition in the liver can lead to cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. Other common manifestations of haemochromatosis include diabetes, bronzing of the skin, arthropathy and cardiomyopathy. Here, we describe a case of pulmonary haemosiderosis secondary to HH. Case Description: A 49-year-old male with no medical history or family history of iron overload presented with fatigue, shortness of breath and chest pain after a recent finding of elevated ferritin. The patient was found to have biallelic C282Y mutations of the human homeostatic iron regulator protein (HFE) protein and after further workup with laboratory tests and imaging was diagnosed with HH with secondary pulmonary haemosiderosis. The patient is receiving twice weekly phlebotomies and has had an overall improvement in his symptoms. Practical Implications: The presentation of haemochromatosis can vary widely depending on the severity of iron overload and the presence of conditions that predispose organ dysfunction. Pulmonary haemosiderosis is a very rare manifestation of HH. This report illustrates the various manifestations of this disease and provides insight into this rare presentation to improve the diagnosis of this disease.

  • Pre-operative Occurrence of First Bite Syndrome in Two Cases of Parotid
           Gland Tumour

    • Authors: Khawaja Shehryar Nasir, Raza Hussain, Arif Jamshed
      Abstract: Introduction: First bite syndrome (FBS) is a gustatory-evoked painful condition that is characterized by the onset of severe electric-shock like pain in the periauricular region. In the majority of patients, FBS develops post-operatively. However, in rare instances it may present in a preoperative setting. Case description: Two cases of FBS developing preoperatively secondary to parotid gland tumour are presented.  The patients, 54 and 30 years old, presented with complaints of electric-shock like pain localized over the periauricular region. In each case the pain was triggered following first bite of the meal. In both cases, pain lasted for a few seconds and with subsequent bites subsided only to return at the beginning of next meal. Practical implications: Preoperative occurrence of FBS in the absence of a history of trauma or surgery should necessitate a thorough investigation and follow up for an underlying salivary gland tumour.
