    ABSTRACT: Metastatic involvement of the optic nerve or its sheath is very rare (1.3 - 3%). The most common malignancies reported to metastasize to the optic nerve or its sheath are breast, lung, kidney, bladder, gastric and colorectal cancers. Carcinoma of uterine cervix metastatic to optic nerve and optic nerve sheath is extremely rare and is associated with grave prognosis due to underlying high tumor burden. Here in, we report a 61-year Saudi woman who was treated with concurrent chemoradiation for squamous cell carcinoma of cervix FIGO IVA 6 months back. She presented with pain and progressive visual loss in the right eye. Magnetic resonance imaging showed enhanced solid mass of the intraorbital optic nerve consistent with optic nerve sheath meningioma. Immunostaining (CK5/6, CAM 5.2, p63 and p16) confirmed the diagnosis of metastatic squamous cell carcinoma of uterine cervix.

    ABSTRACT: To determine the use of the Quantitative Real Time PCR (RQ-PCR) assay follow-up with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) patients. Cross-sectional observational. Izmir Ataturk Education and Research Hospital, Izmir, Turkey, from 2009 to 2013. Cytogenetic, FISH, RQ-PCR test results from 177 CMLpatients' materials selected between 2009 - 2013 years was set up for comparison analysis. Statistical analysis was performed to compare between FISH, karyotype and RQ-PCR results of the patients. Karyotyping and FISH specificity and sensitivity rates determined by ROC analysis compared with RQ-PCR results. Chi-square test was used to compare test failure rates. Sensitivity and specificity values were determined for karyotyping 17.6 - 98% (p=0.118, p > 0.05) and for FISH 22.5 - 96% (p=0.064, p > 0.05) respectively. FISH sensitivity was slightly higher than karyotyping but there was calculated a strong correlation between them (p < 0.001). RQ-PCR test failure rate did not correlate with other two tests (p > 0.05); however, karyotyping and FISH test failure rate was statistically significant (p < 0.001). Besides, the situation needed for karyotype analysis, RQ-PCR assay can be used alone in the follow-up of CMLdisease.
