Abstract Background: NTRK gene fusion is rare in gynecologic cancer. Entrectinib is a novel targeted drug which is a potent inhibitor of TRK A, B and C. Here, we present a case of recurrent ovarian cancer with NTRK1-TPM3 rearrangement, which was detected by next-generation sequencing (NGS) and treated with entrectinib. Case Presentation: A 56-year-old woman was diagnosed as having stage IV ovarian cancer due to pleural effusion. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy and interval debulking surgery followed by chemotherapy were performed. Ten months after completion of chemotherapy, the patient’s disease recurred. She was treated with multimodal therapy for recurrence. DNA-based NGS detected NTRK1-TPM3 rearrangement and entrectinib was started. However, the patient’s disease progressed despite six weeks’ administration of entrectinib, and one month after discontinuation of entrectinib, she died. After her death immunohistochemistry with a pan-Trk monoclonal antibody was performed to determine the expression of TRK. However, immunohistochemistry was negative for TRK.Conclusion: We presented a rare case of recurrent ovarian cancer with NTRK1-TPM3 gene fusion, in which entrectinib was not effective. While NTRK gene fusion was detected by DNA-based NGS, immunohistochemistry was negative for TRK. Immunohistchemitory should be performed for confirmation of TRK protein expression before entrectinib administration.

Mycobacterium Endocarditis is a very rare case. A 5 years old boy presented us with the history of fever and breathlessness. CXR shows huge cardiomegaly, patient is anemic and temperature is raised. On echo revels vegetation on Tricuspid &Mitral valve ç huge pericardial effusion ç features of early tamponade. Pericardial fluid was drawn and the symptoms improved. Pericardial fluid colour was milky and exudative in nature. ADA for mycobacterium tuberculosis was positive. The patient was given anti tuberculosis drug & improved with time.

Galactocele are the most common benign lesion in lactating breast, whereas crystallizing galactocele are the rare variant. Axillary crystallizing galactocele are extremely rare to see , most commonly occur due to wrong breastfeeding technique. FNAC smear shows variety of crystals along with cysteine like crystals in a background of granular amorphous material or lipid micelles.

Eruptive lingual papillitis is a common benign disorder manifested by inflammation of fungiform papillae on the dorsolateral surface of the tongue. Several variants of lingual papillitis have been reported since 1997, most or all of them with painful erythematous papules. Here we report a case of 6 years old girl child with non-painful severe variant form of eruptive lingual papillitis presented to the emergency department. The entire dorsal surface of the tongue was surfaced by 2-3mm by multiple erythematous papules and some with a white or yellowish colour. The papules were excessively inflamed, pigmented, aggregated, and crusted. The cause was idiopathic which resolved within ten days. The parent and patient were reassured with advice to practice oral hygiene. This is a rare case report describing non-painful lingual papillitis without a history of any prior episodes.

Rhabdomyosarcoma is a malignant neoplasm of mesenchymal cells, which shows varying degrees of striated muscle cell differentiation. It predominantly occurs in children while rarely found in adults. Involvement of the oral cavity accounts for only 10-12% of all head and neck cases. Herewith, we report a rare case of oral spindle cell / sclerosing rhabdomyosarcoma in a 47-year-old male presented with a small mass involving the gingiva of right upper incisor. The mass was excised with a preoperative diagnosis of gingival epulis and subjected to histopathological and immunohistochemical examination which confirmed it to be spindle cell / sclerosing rhabdomyosarcoma. Data regarding its clinical course, genetic abnormalities and prognosis as a combined subtype is scant.
