Most common cause of Pseudomyxoma peritonei

Q) Most common cause of pseudomyxoma peritonei is?

a) Appendicular cancer

b) Ovarian cancer

c) colon cancer

d) Pancreatic cancer

Ans a ) Appendicular cancer

It is a disease characterized by mucinous ascites  that arise most often from a perforated mucinous tumor of the appendix.

Similar clinical features may occur in patients with mucinous tumors of the ovary, colon, and pancreas.

The histology of appendiceal tumors is an important predictor of survival

 Adenomucinosis has the best survival rate (75% at 5 years), and peritoneal mucinous carcinomatosis, the worst

Nerve injury Sentinel lymph node biopsy

Q) Most common nerve injured in sentinel lymph node biopsy in carcinoma breast ? ( Breast Onco Q 21-40) 

a) Long thoracic

b) Intercostobrachial

c) Lateral pectoral

d) Nerve to latissmus dorsi

Ans b

SLND causes less paranesthesia's as compared to ALND

Axillary paresthesias are less likely to occur after SLND alone than after SLND + ALND at any follow-up time

Adding ALND caused more axillary paresthesias, probably because ALND is more likely than SLND alone to disrupt the intercostobrachial nerves.
