    ABSTRACT: Background: Striae distensae or stretch marks are atrophic linear dermal scars with epidermal atrophy. There are many therapeutic options for management, but no consistently effective modality is available yet. Objective: We compared the efficacy of 1064 nm long pulse (LP) Nd: YAG laser and 2940 nm variable square pulse (VSP) erbium: YAG laser in the treatment of striae distensae. Methods: Twenty female volunteers (Fitzpatrick skin types II-V) aged between 20 and 40 years with striae (3 patients with the rubra type and 17 with the alba type) were enrolled in the study. The duration of striae ranged from 4 months to 12 years. Lesions were located on the abdomen in all patients except one patient who had striae on the arms and two patients with striae in the lumbar region. Treatments were randomly allocated to both sides of the body in each patient, one side being treated with VSP erbium: YAG laser and the opposite side with LP Nd: YAG laser. All subjects were treated monthly for a total of three treatments. Two 3-mm punch biopsies were obtained from six subjects, both of the same striae, one before the first treatment and one 4 weeks after the last session. Results: Response was evaluated clinically by photographic comparison and was found to be poor in 17 subjects, both on the LP Nd: YAG laser treated side and VSP erbium YAG laser treated side. All these patients had mature lesions (striae distensae alba). Three subjects had a moderate response on both sides; these patients' striae were immature (striae distensae rubra). Histologically, elastic fibers were slightly increased in post-treatment samples compared with pretreatment skin biopsies. Conclusion: We observed no satisfactory clinical improvement in striae distensae alba lesions although histopathological changes were seen. We suggest that variable square pulse Er: YAG and long pulse Nd: YAG lasers are not useful in the treatment of striae distensae alba.

    ABSTRACT: Ovarian metastases from renal cell carcinoma (RCC) are very rare, with only 23 cases reported in the literature. We report a case of 54-year-old women who developed bilateral ovarian metastasis 39 months after diagnosis of clear cell carcinoma. Total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy was carried out. Subsequently she was treated with sunitinib and her disease stabilized. She is still alive four years after diagnosis of the renal primary, and disease has stabilized on sunitinib. We conclude that, although rare, the possibility of metastatic RCC should be considered in the differential diagnosis of clear cell tumors of the ovary. Due to therapeutic and prognostic implications, it is very important to differentiate if the tumor is a primary ovarian tumor or a metastasis from a renal cell carcinoma. Early diagnosis of this rare metastatic tumor results in prompt treatment and prolonged patient survival.

    ABSTRACT: To present an extremely rare case of a primary carcinoid tumor arising in a mature cystic teratoma of the ovary. Malignant transformation of mature cystic teratoma is an uncommon complication occuring in approximately 1-3% of patients with mature cystic teratoma. A 54-year-old woman presented with abdominal swelling and abnormal uterine bleeding. Physical examination revealed a smooth, non-painful, 8-9 cm diameter mass in the right anterior pelvis which was diagnosed histologically as carcinoid tumor arising in a mature cystic teratoma. The patient underwent a total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy and was scheduled for surveillance CT of the abdomen and pelvis at 3-monthly intervals. This case adds to the rare reports in the literature of a carcinoid of low malignant potential occurring in a mature cystic teratoma. The treatment for early-stage ovarian carcinoid tumors confined to one ovary is surgery alone and excellent outcomes can be expected in these cases.
