Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the last few years, there has been a notable development in the management of gynecological cancers towards precision medicine, characterized by personalization and minimal invasiveness. In particular, developments from a genetic, technological and molecular point of view have allowed an ever greater integration between diagnostics, surgical treatment and adjuvant treatments, with the aim of improving the survival and quality of life of cancer patients. In this Special Issue, we invite authors to submit papers on the rule of laparoscopy in the management of patients with gynecological cancer for diagnosis, primary surgical treatment, secondary surgical treatment, different minimal invasive approaches and new technologies.

Dr. Liliana Mereu
Guest Editor

For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Clinical Medicine is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Uterine tumors resembling ovarian sex-cord tumors (UTROSCT) are thought to develop from pluripotent uterine mesenchymal cells or endometrial stromal cells with secondary sex-cord differentiation.

Uterine tumors resembling ovarian sex-cord tumors (UTROSCT) are thought to develop from pluripotent uterine mesenchymal cells or endometrial stromal cells with secondary sex-cord differentiation. The patient was a 73-year-old postmenopausal woman who had abnormal vaginal bleeding, and she underwent a laparoscopic hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. The diagnosis was a case of UTROSCT. A scoping review of the UTROSCT case report present in the literature has been conducted, and 63 articles were found, of which 45 were considered for the 66 clinical cases examined. At the time of diagnosis, six metastatic localizations were found in 59 patients undergoing demolitive surgery (10.2%). Recurrences were diagnosed in 13/59 (22%) patients with multiple locations. A molecular study was performed in 18/66 cases (27.3%) and genetic alterations were found in 10/18 (55.6%) patients. UTROSCTs are considered rare uterine tumors, typically with a favorable prognosis, and are generally considered to have a good prognosis. But, from the review done, they may already manifest themselves at advanced stages, with the possibility of recurrences even at a distance. It would, therefore, be important to be able to define the most aggressive forms and, perhaps, molecular investigation with sequencing could help identify patients most at risk. Full article
