    ABSTRACT: The treatment of locally advanced cervical carcinoma of uterine cervix is based on concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CCR). The role of laparoscopic lymphadenectomy before CCR and hysterectomy after CCR is not consensual. Retrospective multicentric study on 102 patients treated for locally advanced carcinoma of uterine cervix between 1999 and 2008. Disease-free survival and overall survival (OS) were studied. Stages were: stage IB 42%, II 47% and stage III and IVA 11%. All patients received CCR. Eighty-one patients had associated brachytherapy. Sixty-two patients underwent laparoscopic lymphadenectomy before CCR and 31 patients had also para-aortic lymphadenectomy. Eighty-two patients had hysterectomy after CCR. Forty-seven percent (29/62) of patients had a histologically proven pelvic lymph node involvement and 58% (18/31) had a histologically proven para-aortic lymph node involvement. There is no predictor of the presence of residual tumor on hysterectomy. The lymph node involvement before treatment and the presence of residual tumor on hysterectomy were poor prognostic factors on relapse-free survival (SSR) and OS. It has not been shown to benefit from surgery pre- or post-CCR on survival. Surgery can provide major prognosis factor and especially lymphadenectomy before CCR can improve the therapeutic strategy but does not demonstrate significant survival benefit.

    ABSTRACT: Introduction The diagnosis of atypical epithelial hyperplasia (AEH) increases with breast cancer screening. AEH is divided in three groups: atypical ductal hyperplasia, columnar cell lesions with atypia, lobular neoplasia. The management of women with AEH is not consensual because of uncertainty about their diagnosis related to the type of the biopsy sampling (core needle biopsy or surgical excision) and their controversial clinical signification between risk marker and true precursor of breast cancer. Material and methods A systematic review of published studies was performed. Medline baseline interrogation was performed with the following keywords: atypical ductal hyperplasia, columnar cell lesions with atypia, lobular neoplasia, core needle biopsy, breast cancer, precursor lesion, hormonal replacement therapy. For each breast lesion, identified publications (English or French) were assessed for clinical practise in epidemiology, diagnosis and patient management. Results With immunohistochemistry and molecular studies, AEH seems to be precursor of breast cancer. But, epidemiological studies show low rate of breast cancer in women with AEH. AEH were still classified as risk factor of breast cancer. Conclusion Because of high rate of breast cancer underestimation, surgical excision is necessary after the diagnosis of AEH at core needle biopsy. Surgical oncology rules and collaboration with radiologist are required for this surgery. A second operation was not required due to involved margins by AEH (except with pleiomorphic lobular neoplasia) because local control of breast cancer seems to be unchanged. Besides, hormonal replacement therapy for patient with AEH is not recommended because of lack of studies about this subject.
