  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Large asymptomatic left atrial myxoma with ossification: case report.
  • BACKGROUND: Atrial myxomas are the most common primary cardiac tumors.
  • They are usually small or moderate in size by the time of the diagnosis, exhibiting non specific cardiac or systemic symptoms, and are most frequently soft and friable without microscopic signs of ossification.
  • We describe herein an extremely rare case of an asymptomatic giant left atrial myxoma with angiographic neovascularization and ossification.
  • The tumor was an incidental finding during a work-up for hemoptysis due to bronchectasis.
  • The tumor macroscopically did not resemble a myxoma, considering its dimensions (12 x 10 cm) and its solid substance.
  • The pathology study revealed a benign myxoma with excessive osteoid (mature bone) content.

8. Orlandi A, Ciucci A, Ferlosio A, Pellegrino A, Chiariello L, Spagnoli LG: Increased expression and activity of matrix metalloproteinases characterize embolic cardiac myxomas. Am J Pathol; 2005 Jun;166(6):1619-28
NCI CPTC Antibody Characterization Program. NCI CPTC Antibody Characterization Program .

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Increased expression and activity of matrix metalloproteinases characterize embolic cardiac myxomas.
  • Tumor embolism occurs in 30 to 50% of all cases of cardiac myxoma, but the causes are still uncertain.
  • To determine whether MMP activity contributes to tumor embolism, we examined 27 left atrium-sided myxomas, 10 of which showed clinical signs of peripheral embolism.
  • Immunohistochemistry (in all cases) and Western blotting, and in situ and in-gel zymography (in four embolic and six nonembolic consecutive tumors) demonstrated higher expression and activity of MT1-MMP, pro-MMP-2, and pro-MMP-9 in embolic myxomas, whereas pro-MMP-1, MMP-3, and TIMP-1 levels were similar to those of nonembolic tumors.
  • Reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction demonstrated that increased MMP activity was due, at least in part, to increased transcription and that TIMP-2 transcripts increased in embolic myxomas.
  • Increased MMP synthesis and release correlated with enhanced ECM degradation products containing glycosaminoglycan chains in embolic myxoma tissue.
  • Our results strongly suggest that MMP overexpression may contribute to an excessive degradation of tumor ECM and increase the risk of embolism in cardiac myxomas.

  • [Title] Myxomas and angiomyxomas of the orbit: a clinicopathologic study of 6 cases.
  • PURPOSE: To report clinical and histopathologic features and biologic behavior of orbital myxomas and angiomyxomas.
  • PARTICIPANTS: Patients with histopathologic diagnoses of orbital myxoma or angiomyxoma.
  • MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Final diagnosis, based on histopathology, special stains, and immunohistochemistry, and clinical course from analysis of metadata and clinical features.
  • RESULTS: Three myxomas and 3 angiomyxomas were identified in 5 males and 1 female.
  • Two angiomyxomas occurred in children ages 4 and 7 years whose tumors were locally aggressive and recurred.
  • Recurrence also complicated one case of myxoma after incomplete excision.
  • Small blood vessels were rare in myxomas but abundant in angiomyxomas.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Myxomas rarely involve orbital tissue, and no angiomyxomas of the region have been previously reported.
  • Angiomyxomas in children may be aggressive.
  • Tumor cell immunopositivity for vimentin, CD34, and factor XIIIa may assist in the histopathologic diagnosis.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Vulvar Cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] HMGA2 is a sensitive but not specific immunohistochemical marker of vulvovaginal aggressive angiomyxoma.
  • Aggressive angiomyxoma is a rare mesenchymal neoplasm, which almost always occurs in the vulvovaginal region and which exhibits a marked tendency for local recurrence after excision.
  • A wide range of other mesenchymal lesions occur in this region, which potentially mimic aggressive angiomyxoma to a variable extent.
  • Because rearrangement of the HMGA2 gene has been shown in a significant percentage of aggressive angiomyxomas, we examined the expression of HMGA2 protein in this neoplasm and in a large number of other mesenchymal lesions occurring at this site, including many which were referred with a possible diagnosis of aggressive angiomyxoma.
  • There was positive staining of tumor cell nuclei, mostly with a diffuse distribution, in all but 2 aggressive angiomyxomas (n=12).
  • Based on our study, we conclude that HMGA2 is positive in most aggressive angiomyxomas and is useful in diagnosis as most mesenchymal lesions which closely mimic this are negative.
  • As well as being of value in primary diagnosis, HMGA2 is useful in evaluating margins and in reexcision specimens of aggressive angiomyxoma in identifying foci of residual or recurrent tumor.

  • It is considered the laryngeal counterpart of the aggressive angiomyxoma of the pelvis and perineum.
  • Although benign, angiomyxomas have a propensity for local recurrence due to their tendency to infiltrate surrounding tissues.
  • We describe a case of laryngeal angiomyxoma in a 40-year-old man that, to the best of our knowledge, is only the second such case reported in the literature.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Aggressive angiomyxoma of the thigh.
  • Aggressive angiomyxoma is a rare tumour that typically occurs in the perineum in women of reproductive age.
  • While benign, the tumour is locally infiltrative and consequently has a high rate of local recurrence following surgery; therefore, accurate pre-operative diagnosis is important.
  • The characteristic location of these tumours in the low pelvis or perineum has led to speculation that aggressive angiomyxomas arise from a mesenchymal cell that is unique to the perineum.
  • We describe a case of aggressive angiomyxoma arising in the thigh of a 54-year-old man, which we believe is the first reported instance of this rare neoplasm occurring remote from the pelvis or perineum in a male patient.
  • At histological analysis, the tumour exhibited the characteristic features of aggressive angiomyxoma, with bland spindle cells and large, hyalinised blood vessels in a hypocellular myxoid matrix.
  • Extensive immunohistochemical staining further supported the diagnosis.
  • While the imaging features of these tumours are non-specific and suggestive of myxoid neoplasms, the diagnosis should be considered whenever biopsy of a myxoid-appearing mass yields hypocellular, non-diagnostic material, despite adequate sampling.

  • INTRODUCTION: Myxomas are the most common type of benign heart tumors.
  • The aim of this study was to correlate the clinical forms of presentation of cardiac myxoma and complementary laboratory results with the morphological features of the tumor.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: We reviewed retrospectively a total of 30 cardiac myxomas seen in 2 institutions after a period of 22 years.
  • Larger-diameter myxomas were observed in older patients and correlated with cardiac symptoms, radiological and electrocardiographical abnormalities.
  • Smaller-diameter myxomas presented more frequently embolic phenomenons.
  • There was no evidence of recurrence of the disease.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Myxomas are the most frequent tumors of the heart.
  • Diagnosis was achieved in all patients by transthoracic echocardiography.

  • The aim of the current study was to report a well-documented case of sinonasal myxoma in a 12-month-old boy, initially presenting with obliteration of his left nasolacrimal duct.
  • After biopsy where benign fibroblastic elements were found, the tumor was removed surgically in wide margins, whereas great care was taken to reconstruct the involved adjacent anatomic structures and preserve facial aesthetics.
  • Histopathologic findings were compatible with an extragnathic, nonodontogenic sinonasal myxoma originating from the nasolacrimal duct.

  • [Title] The Fas-mediated apoptotic pathway in cardiac myxoma.
  • Cardiac myxoma is the most common primary tumor of the heart.
  • The existence of apoptosis in cardiac myxoma has been demonstrated.
  • The purpose of this investigation was to elucidate the pathway of apoptosis and the cell cycle in cardiac myxomas.
  • This study had 2 parts: investigation of a cultured cardiac myxoma cell line and the analysis of data from 20 patients with cardiac myxoma that was surgically excised.
  • All cases of myxoma were sporadic myxomas rather than familial.
  • All myxomas were located in the left atrium.
  • Pathological scores for inflammation, cellularity, calcification, and thrombosis were not related to myxoma location or clinical events.
  • In cardiac myxoma, apoptosis documented by TUNEL (70.9% ± 17.6%) and the caspase-3 (66.5% ± 32.5%) final common pathway is characterized by the extrinsic Fas/ FasL dependent pathway (positive stained 70.9% ± 19.2%; 26.0% ± 17.2%, respectively), but not the intrinsic pathway.
  • The RT-PCR and Western Blot analysis (Fas/FasL, TNF-α, caspase-3, and apoptosis) of the cardiac myxoma and cultured cardiac myxoma cells confirmed the immunochemical results.
  • The extrinsic Fas/FasL-dependent apoptosis pathways in cardiac myxomas were proved by both RNA and protein levels.

  • BACKGROUND: Aggressive angiomyxoma (AAM) is a rare soft tissue tumour usually of the perineum.
  • There is no report in the surgical literature of a description of AAM in black Africans.
  • METHODS: Case one was a 38-year-old pre-menopausal woman who presented with a five-year history of a painless mass in the left buttock extending to the left side of the perineum with recent ulceration.
  • RESULTS: In both cases the histopathology of the surgical specimens was reported as bland hypocellular tumours with spindle and stellate cells that lacked mitotic activity consistent with a diagnosis of an aggressive angiomyxoma.
  • CONCLUSION: The clinical and histopathological features of the tumours described in this report are consistent with a diagnosis of aggressive angiomyxoma.

  • Intracardiac extension of this tumor is rare and may be misdiagnosed as right atrial myxoma unless the extracardiac part of the tumor is fully evaluated.
  • We report a case of a 76-year-old woman whose preoperative diagnosis was right atrial myxoma.
  • When the findings of no attachment of the tumor to the interatrial septum or the right atrial wall and the tumor extension through the IVC are obtained by TEE examination, IVL should be considered as a differential diagnosis.

  • A significant percentage of donors may be found among patients primarily suffering from benign neoplasms whose nature does not show malignant potential and do not metastasize.
  • To date, there have been no reports about successful organ transplantation from an organ donor with cardiac myxoma.
  • AIM: The aim of this report was to present a successful transplantation of cadaveric kidney grafts from a 61-year-old female donor with a left atrial cardiac myxoma, which initially appeared as an embolic cerebral infarct.
  • CONCLUSION: Patients with myxoma should be accepted as donors, since the risk of dying on the waiting list is greater than the tumor transfer risk.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Stem Cells.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • We hypothesized that adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) possess the ability to home and deliver myxoma virus to glioma cells and experimental gliomas.
  • We infected ADSCs with vMyxgfp and found them to be permissive for myxoma virus replication.
  • We cocultured fluorescently labeled GBM cells with myxoma virus-infected ADSCs in three-dimensional assay and observed successful cross infection and concomitant cell death almost exclusively in GBM cells.
  • In vivo orthotopic studies injected with vMyxgfp-ADSCs intracranially away from the tumor demonstrated that myxoma virus was delivered by ADSCs resulting in significant survival increase.
  • Our data suggest that ADSCs are promising new carriers of oncolytic viruses, specifically myxoma virus, to brain tumors.

  • The most frequent tumors were myxomas (70 %), papillary fibroelastomas and fibromas.
  • Myxoma was predominantly found in the left atrium ( P < 0.0001; OR = 12.8 and 4 - 41 95 % CI).
  • Left atrial tumors showed less mortality ( P = 0.1; OR = 3 and 0.7 - 11.6 95 % CI), with a lower mortality for myxomas ( P < 0.001), fewer recurrences ( P = 0.03; OR = 8.7 and 0.8 - 89 95 % CI), and a greater embolic potential than in other locations ( P = 0.03 % OR = 0.7 and 0.6 - 0.8 95 % CI).

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Mobile masses within the left atrial cavity are commonly caused by organized thrombi or left atrial myxoma.
  • We report a case of a left atrial mass in a female patient who presented with mitral stenosis and atrial fibrillation, and was diagnosed by transthoracic echocardiography (TTE).
  • We conclude that TTE is still a reliable tool in the diagnosis of large mobile atrial thrombi; TEE is needed when differentiation from atrial myxoma is difficult.

  • In view of the environmental and economic damage caused by rabbits in Australia and other islands, the development of a virulent or genetically modified T. nabiasi should be considered to control rabbits.

  • [Title] The case of the disappearing myxoma.
  • We present a case demonstrating the utility of cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) in the diagnosis of a cardiac mass.
  • A 70-year-old female who presented with chest pressure and left sided jaw pain was found to have a cardiac mass on transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography that was diagnosed as an atrial myxoma.
  • A cardiac magnetic resonance test determined the mass to be more consistent with a thrombus than a myxoma through a stepwise approach using multiple pulse sequences.
  • Thus, unwarranted and potentially risky thoracic surgery was avoided by the incorporation of a systematic evaluation by cardiac MRI.

  • Cardiac myxomas are rare tumors that usually occur as sporadic lesions or,more rarely, in the familial form,mostly in the context of Carney complex (CNC).
  • The molecular basis for the development of cardiac myxomas is unclear.
  • However, somatic activating mutations in the GNAS1 gene (the gsp oncogene) are detected in the myocardium ofMcCune-Albright syndrome patients while germ-line mutations in the PRKAR1A gene are associated with CNC and familial myxomas.
  • We investigated the presence of activating missense mutations in the GNAS1 gene as well as of inactivating mutations in PRKAR1A in 29 sporadically occurring cardiac myxomas.
  • This is the first study including a large series of sporadic, isolated cardiac myxomas and showing that these cardiac neoplasms do not share the same mutations found in familial forms.
