Cutaneous metastasis from vulvar squamous cell carcinoma: a rare occurrence that should not be forgotten.
Vulvar cancer accounts for 5% of the female genital tract cancers. Cutaneous metastases from vulvar cancer are extremely rare and for this reason, it can be difficult to reach a diagnosis with a consequent delay in the treatment.
Global prevalence of glaucoma and projections of glaucoma burden through 2040: a systematic review and meta-analysis
We systematically examined the global prevalence of primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) and primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG), and projected the number of affected people in 2020 and 2040.
Global, regional, and national cancer incidence, mortality, years of life lost, years lived with disability, and disability-adjusted life-years for 32 cancer groups, 1990 to 2015: A systematic analysis for the global burden of disease study.
Cancer is the second leading cause of death worldwide. Current estimates on the burden of cancer are needed for cancer control planning.
Long-term outcome and quality of life after initial and repeat resection of colorectal liver metastasis: A retrospective analysis.
Background: Repeat hepatectomy is a widely accepted treatment for patients with recurrent colorectal liver metastasis (CRLM). The aim of this study was to compare initial and repeat hepatic resection concerning overall survival...
Global, regional, and national burden of epilepsy, 1990-2016: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016.
Background: Seizures and their consequences contribute to the burden of epilepsy because they can cause health loss (premature mortality and residual disability). Data on the burden of epilepsy are needed for health-care planning...
Global Cancer Statistics 2020: GLOBOCAN Estimates of Incidence and Mortality Worldwide for 36 Cancers in 185 Countries
This article provides an update on the global cancer burden using the GLOBOCAN 2020 estimates of cancer incidence and mortality produced by the International Agency for Research on Cancer.
Interaction of margin status and tumour burden determines survival after resection of colorectal liver metastases: A retrospective cohort study.
Purpose: We sought to determine the impact of surgical margin status on overall survival (OS) and recurrence pattern stratified by tumor burden.
Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) prevalence, demographics and management pathways in Australia: A population-based cross-sectional study
Our main aim was to determine HS prevalence in the Australian adult population focussing on the demographics, management pathways and diagnosis rate of individuals living with HS.
Global asthma prevalence in adults: findings from the cross-sectional world health survey
Background: Asthma is a major cause of disability, health resource utilization and poor quality of life world-wide. We set out to generate estimates of the global burden of asthma in adults, which may inform the development of strategies to address this common disease.
