Case Report

Adenoid Basal Carcinoma: A First Case Report and Literature Review from the Mainland of P.R. China

Haifeng Qiu*

Adenoid basal carcinoma is a rare neoplasm of the uterine cervix, which mostly occurred among postmenopausal women[1]. Firstly, Baggish and Woodruff described it in 1966 [2]. It accounts for less than 1% of all cervical adenocarcinomas.Up to now, there have been fewer than 100 reported cases of this disease [3]. However, maybe due to the linguistic problem,these data did not take cases from the mainland of P.R. China into consideration. Owning the largest population of the world (more than 1.3 billion), we believe it is worthy to study the epidemiologic and clinicopathologic features of adenoid basal carcinoma from China. Herein, we report a case of adenoid basal carcinoma in our hospital. Simultaneously, literatures for all other reports of this rare carcinoma in China are reviewed.

The lack of specific symptoms for EOC leads to a delay in diagnosis and results in women presenting with advanced stages of the disease.

Influence of Maternal BMI and Exercise on Fetal Heart Outcomes

Linda E May*, Richard R Suminski, and Michelle D Langaker

We previously reported decreased fetal heart rate (FHR) and increased heart rate variability (HRV) in fetuses exposed to exercise during gestation. However, sympathetic over activity is seen in overweight and obese individuals. Further, overweight and obese women have increased likelihood of negative pregnancy outcomes and congenital anomalies. The purpose of this retrospective analysis was to determine if maternal BMI status has an effect on fetal cardiac outcomes. We hypothesized that higher maternal BMI would be related to less changes on fetal heart rate and heart rate variability measures.

TRANSLATIONAL MEDICINE: A Historical Excursus of Studies Concerning the Cause-and-Effect Relation between Anogenital Warts/Cervical Cancer and the Human Papilloma Virus

Ospan A Mynbaev*

The implementation of results and principles of basic sciences into practical medicine is defined as translational medicine. The present review aims to highlight milestone studies that have been focusing on the cause-and-effect relation of anogenital warts and the human papilloma virus. Furthermore, it aims to shed light on the outstanding scientists and physicians who have been passing the baton throughout the ages. Indeed, the impact of basic sciences and scholars on physicians’ routine is not to be underestimated.
