Papillary adenocarcinoma of the rete testis: a case report and review of the literature

Urology
J P SteinD G Skinner

Abstract

Adenocarcinoma of the rete testis is a rare neoplasm with 40 reported cases in the world literature to our knowledge. Although the natural history of this tumor is not well known, it appears highly malignant even in localized forms. Adenocarcinoma of the rete testis is highly resistant to adjuvant radiotherapy and any known chemotherapeutic regimen. We recommend radical orchiectomy followed by a retroperitoneal lymphadenectomy as the treatment for clinically localized Stage A tumors and minimal or microscopic Stage B disease. We report a case of adenocarcinoma of the rete testis and review the world literature.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
