  • [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.

  • A CT scan showed a giant multiseptated cystic mass in the abdomen measuring 22.5 x 30 x 40.5 cm with significant mass effect causing intrahepatic ductal dilatation and right hydronephrosis.
  • The mass was decompressed via a mini-laparotomy in a controlled fashion, removing 15 liters of fluid.
  • CONCLUSION: Giant ovarian cysts can be managed laparoscopically when a normal tumor marker profile and benign imaging appearance exclude the possibility of malignancy.

  • Imaging characteristics of the left adrenal mass were consistent with a benign adenoma, but CT also demonstrated a hypervascular para-aortic mass.
  • 123I-metaiodo-benzylguanidine scanning with fusion CT imaging demonstrated increased radiopharmaceutical uptake within the para-aortic mass consistent with a paraganglioma in the organ of Zuckerkandl.
  • Findings from CT angiography of the abdomen and pelvis suggested aortic involvement and vena caval thrombus.
  • The mass was excised en bloc, including portions of the aorta, inferior vena cava, and right ureter.

  • INTRODUCTION: Inflammatory fibroid polyps are rare benign tumors of the gastrointestinal tract with the gastric antrum being the most common site, followed by the ileum.
  • Inflammatory fibroid polyps are one of the rare benign conditions leading to intestinal obstruction in adults.
  • CASE PRESENTATION: A 54-year-old Caucasian man presented with acute abdomen pain and a two month history of intermittent cramping and lower abdominal pain.
  • An ileo-ileal intussusception due to a mass lesion 15 cm proximal to the caecum was found on exploratory laparotomy.
  • Histopathologic examination showed the mass to be an inflammatory fibroid polyp.
  • CONCLUSION: Although inflammatory fibroid polyps are rare and benign, in the case of intestinal obstruction the only solution is a surgical approach.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • [Title] Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor presenting as acute abdomen: report of one case.
  • Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is a very rare benign tumor composed of myofibroblastic spindle cells of uncertain etiology, which can occur at any age and affect any organ system.
  • Here we present a 1-year-9-month-old boy who had fever and abdominal pain only for 2 days, symptoms mimicking acute abdomen.
  • After imaging study, a huge tumor nearly 10 cm in diameter was incidentally found over the right abdomen with unknown origin and nature.
  • This case illustrates that IMT should be considered as a possible cause of intra-abdominal mass in children who have fever of unknown origin.

  • Bilateral presentation of benign Struma ovarii is rare and has not been reported frequently in published literature.
  • The contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CECT) of the abdomen and pelvis revealed a heterogenous mass in the left adnexa.
  • After surgery the diagnosis of non functional, bilateral benign Struma ovarii was made.
  • This is a rare case of bilateral benign struma ovarii associated with Pseudo-Meigs' syndrome and elevated CA-125 levels.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • To the best of our knowledge, there are only 13 previous cases of benign mucinous cystadenoma (MCA) of the ovary in perimenarchal girls reported in the literature.
  • 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.

  • [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.

  • 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.

  • Inflammatory pseudotumor (IPT) is a benign tumorous lesion of unknown cause, which is composed of fibrous tissue with infiltration of plasma cells and lymphocytes.
  • Abdominal ultrasonographic examination revealed a tumor mass approximately 4 cm in diameter in a lateral hepatic segment.
  • The margin and center of the mass were hypoechoic and iso- to hyperechoic, respectively, and the inside of the mass was non-homogeneous.
  • Since computed tomography (CT) of the abdomen, done 4 months after detection of the tumor mass, revealed the mass to have increased to approximately 6 cm in diameter, excision biopsy was considered.
  • The CT taken 2 months later revealed the mass to have regressed to approximately 2 cm in diameter, but excision of the lateral hepatic segment was undertaken at the patient's request.

  • 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.

  • Benign mesenteric lymphangiomas are rare intra-abdominal cysts which may be asymptomatic or present with a variety of abdominal symptoms including an acute abdomen.
  • We present the case of a 62-year-old man who was admitted with signs and symptoms of acute pancreatitis and a palpable abdominal mass.
  • Computerised tomography (CT) of his abdomen confirmed the presence of a mesenteric cystic mass.
  • He underwent a laparotomy at which a large thin walled mass filled with a chylous fluid was resected.
  • Histological analysis of this cyst showed it to be a benign mesenteric lymphangioma.

  • The term mucocele is inherently imprecise and inclusive of both benign and malignant lesions.
  • AIM: We present a case of an appendiceal stump mucocele caused by a mucinous cystadenoma clinically presented as a giant retroperitoneal mass.
  • CASE REPORT: The case of a 54-year-old woman, with a previous appendectomy, suffering from a painful mass in the right lower quadrant of the abdomen, is reported.
  • Surgery revealed a 13 x 5.5 cm retroperitoneal cystic mass, which was excised together with the appendiceal remnant.
  • Pathological diagnosis was that of a mucocele arising from the appendiceal stump due to the development of a benign mucinous cystadenoma.

  • The first case is that of a 16-year-old girl who underwent suboccipital craniectomy for resection of medulloblastoma and 14 months later was found to have a 4-cm nontender mass at the incision site, with evidence of skull erosion on neuroimaging.
  • Resection of the mass revealed cranial fasciitis.
  • The patient later developed two more lesions in the cranial region, as well as lesions on the chest wall and abdomen consistent with nodular fasciitis; all of the lesions were resected.
  • The second case is that of a 61-year-old man who underwent suboccipital craniectomy for hypertensive hemorrhage and 2 years later was found to have an enlarging mass at the incision site, causing compression of the cerebellum.
  • The mass was resected and found to be consistent with cranial fasciitis.
  • Cranial fasciitis is a rare, benign lesion of the cranial region.
