Hydatidiform Mole, Invasive definition: A uterine tumor derived from persistent gestational TROPHOBLASTS, most likely after a molar pregnancy (HYDATIDIFORM MOLE). Invasive hyadatiform mole develops in about 15% of patients after evacuation of a complete mole and less frequently after other types of gestation. It may perforate the MYOMETRIUM and erode uterine vessels causing hemorrhage.
Invasive Hydatidiform Mole definition: This term is used when a complete mole or very rarely a partial mole invades the myometrium. Microscopically, villi of hydatidiform mole are present within the myometrium or the myometrial vessels. Patients have persistent or rising hCG levels.
surgery definition: Used for operative procedures on organs, regions, or tissues in the treatment of diseases, including tissue section by lasers. It excludes transplantation, for which "transplantation" is used.
Invasive definition: Marked by a tendency to spread, especially into healthy surrounding tissue.
Invasive Pulmonary Aspergillosis definition: Lung infections with the invasive forms of ASPERGILLUS, usually after surgery, transplantation, prolonged NEUTROPENIA or treatment with high-doses of CORTICOSTEROIDS. Invasive pulmonary aspergillosis can progress to CHRONIC NECROTIZING PULMONARY ASPERGILLOSIS or hematogenous spread to other organs.
Invasive Malignant Thymoma definition: A malignant thymoma that extends beyond the capsule and infiltrates the surrounding tissues. --2003
Invasive Thymoma definition: A thymoma of any morphologic type that extends beyond the capsule and infiltrates the surrounding tissues. --2003
Invasive Lobular Breast Carcinoma definition: An infiltrating lobular adenocarcinoma. The malignant cells lack cohesion and are arranged individually or in a linear manner (Indian files), or as narrow trabeculae within the stroma. The malignant cells are usually smaller than those of ductal carcinoma, are less pleomorphic, and have fewer mitotic figures.
Cervical Carcinoma definition: Cervical carcinoma may arise from either the exocervical squamous epithelium or the endocervical glandular epithelium. The major histologic types of cervical carcinoma are: squamous carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, adenosquamous carcinoma, adenoid cystic carcinoma and undifferentiated carcinoma.
Ductal Breast Carcinoma In Situ and Lobular Carcinoma In Situ definition: The co-existence of ductal and lobular carcinoma in situ in the breast, without evidence of stromal invasion.
