  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Multi-detector CT features of benign adnexal lesions.
  • RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES: The purpose of our study was to evaluate the multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) features of benign adnexal lesions.
  • METHODS AND MATERIALS: We report the MDCT features of 68 histologically proven benign adnexal lesions.
  • Pathologic diagnoses were nonneoplastic adnexal cysts (n = 16), endometriomas (n = 12), serous or mucinous cystadenomas (n = 15), fibromas or fibrothecomas (n = 7), teratomas (n = 6), and a variety of benign adnexal lesions (n = 12).
  • The CT protocol included scanning of the abdomen after the intravenous administration of iodinated contrast material (portal phase) using a detector collimation of 16 x 0.75 mm and a pitch of 1.2.
  • Endometriomas had a variable CT appearance, including a unilocular or multilocular cystic mass, and a homogeneous hyperdense mass lesion.
  • CONCLUSION: MDCT may provide accurate diagnostic information about the benign nature of adnexal lesions.

  • [Title] Paraneoplastic hypercalcemia in a dog with benign renal angiomyxoma.
  • Abdominal ultrasonography and contrast-enhanced computed tomography of the abdomen revealed a right-sided, cystic-appearing renal mass.
  • Cytological examination of ultrasound-guided aspirates of the mass revealed high numbers of spindle cells.
  • The mass was removed en bloc via an ureteronephrectomy.
  • Histopathological examination of the mass revealed neoplastic spindle cells in loosely packed and interlacing streams within a myxomatous stroma.
  • Immunohistochemical examination with vimentin, von Willebrand Factor, and alpha-smooth muscle actin confirmed the mass to be a renal angiomyxoma.
  • The present report describes a previously unreported renal neoplasm causing paraneoplastic hypercalcemia and highlights the possibility of paraneoplastic hypercalcemia being caused by a benign neoplasm.

  • [Title] Benign mixed epithelial stromal tumor of the renal pelvis with exophytic growth: case report.
  • BACKGROUND: Mixed epithelial and stromal tumor (MEST) is a distinctive benign composite neoplasm of the kidney predominantly seen in females mostly in the perimenopausal period.
  • A computed tomography scan of abdomen and pelvis showed a 9 x 7 cm uniformly solid mass with poor contrast enhancement situated in the inferomedial aspect of the left kidney.
  • On exploration, the mass was arising from the inferior and anterior aspect of left renal pelvis, and was attached to it with a narrow pedicle.
  • The mass was excised preserving the kidney.
  • Microscopically, the tumor was composed of large collagenized areas containing bundles of spindle cells and several 'microcysts' lined by cuboidal epithelium suggestive of a benign mixed epithelial stromal tumor.
  • DISCUSSION: Mixed epithelial tumors usually present in perimenopausal women as a partially cystic mass.
  • CONCLUSION: MEST is a distinctive benign tumor of the kidney that should be distinguished from other renal neoplasms.

  • [Title] Exophytic benign mixed epithelial stromal tumour of the kidney: case report of a rare tumour entity.
  • BACKGROUND: Mixed epithelial and stromal tumour (MEST) represents a recently described benign composite neoplasm of the kidney, which predominantly affects perimenopausal females.
  • Most tumours are benign, although rare malignant cases have been observed.
  • A CT scan of the abdomen showed a 30-mm-in-diameter uniform mass adjacent to the pelvis of the left kidney.
  • DISCUSSION: MEST typically presents in perimenopausal women as a primarily cystic mass.
  • CONCLUSION: MEST represents a distinctive benign tumour entity of the kidney, which affects perimenopausal woman.
  • By imaging studies it is difficult to distinguish between a benign or malignant nature of the tumour.

  • [Title] A case of a solid renal mass together with a cystic pancreatic lesion in a 50-year-old patient.
  • They are benign lesions and can present as solitary pancreatic tumors or as a radiological manifestation combined with other cystic and tumoral lesions affecting different organs.
  • A computed tomography scan of the abdomen showed a 9-centimeter renal mass in the left kidney consistent with a renal-cell carcinoma as well as a cystic lesion the head of the pancreas.
  • The histopathological study of the cystic mass, following a computed tomography guided biopsy, showed a microcystic adenoma.
  • The combination of a solid renal mass and a pancreatic cystic lesion should lead to a broad differential diagnosis.
  • The presence of walls and internal septations in the pancreatic mass with gadolinium enhancement should raise the possibility of an underlying Von Hippel-Lindau syndrome.

  • In a majority of cases, the mass will turn out to be a benign nonfunctional adenoma.
  • The physician needs however to assess the functionality of the mass by evaluating hormone hypersecretion and whether the mass is benign or malignant.

  • Lymphangiomas are congenital malformations of the lymphatic system that account for about 5% of all benign tumors in infants and children.(1) The most common sites are the neck and axilla, which account for 95% of cases.(2) Abdominal cystic lymphangiomas are quite rare, and can arise from either the retroperitoneum, gastrointestinal tract, or the mesentery of the abdominal viscera.(3) The presenting symptoms are painless abdominal distension, a palpable mass, or secondary complications in the abdomen such as intestinal obstruction, volvulus, intestinal infarction, or bleeding.(4) Typically diagnosed during childhood, these tumors prompt surgical intervention.
  • We describe an atypical case of an abdominal cystic lymphangioma, which did not manifest until adulthood, with atypical symptoms of a rapidly expanding and symptomatic mass.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • On examination, an ill-defined abdominal mass was found.
  • This was confirmed on ultrasound to be a multiseptated cystic mass with a solid element, arising from the right side of the abdomen.
  • Despite further imaging, the origin of the mass could not be identified.
  • The mass was suspected of malignancy but all blood tests and tumour markers were normal.
  • The mass proved to be a diagnostic challenge.
  • The renal origin of the mass was only confirmed at surgery.
  • CONCLUSION: Imaging appears to be unreliable in differentiating benign cysts from malignant renal tumours, raising a diagnostic dilemma where surgery seems the only way to reliably establish aetiology of the mass.

65. Lee GC, Choi SW, Kim SH, Kwon HJ: Multiple extracranial metastases of atypical meningiomas. J Korean Neurosurg Soc; 2009 Feb;45(2):107-11

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Meningiomas are usually benign neoplasms in which extracranial metastases occur very rarely.
  • We performed a total mass removal, and the histopathologic findings were consistent with benign meningioma.
  • Six months later, CT and MRI revealed metastases to multiple vertebrae, lung, ribs and perirenal soft tissue so a decompressive laminectomy with mass removal was performed.
  • Finally, an evaluation of the chest, abdomen and bone is necessary, especially when related symptoms or signs develop.

  • A 67-year-old woman was found to have an incidental pancreatic mass on computed tomographic examination of her abdomen in the course of investigation of hematuria.
  • The radiologic features were of a hypervascular mass in the uncinate process of the head of the pancreas, and a preoperative diagnosis of a neuroendocrine tumor was favored.
  • The uncinate process contained a 2.6-cm well-circumscribed mass.
  • No evidence of atypia was noted, and the overall impression was of a benign solitary fibrous tumor of the pancreas.

  • Preoperative CT examination was performed, including scanning of the abdomen during the portal phase, using a detector collimation of 16 x 0.75 mm and a pitch of 1.2.
  • Multiplanar reformatted images were evaluated for the presence of an adnexal mass and differentiation between benign and malignant ones, using the surgical and pathologic results as standard of reference.
  • CT findings used to diagnose malignancy were: diameter greater than 4 cm, presence of masses bilaterally, cystic-solid mass, necrosis in a solid lesion, cystic lesion with thick, irregular walls or septa and/or with papillary projections.
  • RESULTS: Histopathologic examination demonstrated 143 adnexal mass lesions, 96 (67%) of which were benign and 47 (33%) malignant.
  • The MDCT findings that found more predictive of malignancy were the presence of papillary projections in a cystic lesion, necrosis in solid mass and peritoneal metastases.

  • Ultrasound demonstrated a large multiloculated cystic mass arising from the pelvis reaching the level of the xiphoid.
  • CT demonstrated an enormous mass occupying almost the entire abdomen.
  • The mass was partly solid, partly cystic and the cystic elements were multiloculated in all patients.
  • Several litres of fluid were aspirated in order to deliver the tumour from the abdomen.
  • Histology revealed benign MCA of the ovary in all cases.
  • Although this tumour is rare, this diagnosis should be considered in 11 to 15-year-old girls presenting with a very large abdominal mass.

  • The appearance of an intraoral mass is common in our specialty.
  • Most are benign lesions, but some are primary malignancies.
  • An 86 year old woman was referred to our department with a large, asymptomatic, intraoral, fast-growing mass.
  • The histological study showed a metastatic adenocarcinoma with a suspected origin in the abdomen.
  • Given the patient's general status and despite the ominous prognosis of such lesions, we decided not to perform any aggressive therapy beyond removing the oral mass, in order to maintain her quality of life.
