  • [Title] [Systemic AA amyloidosis induced by benign neoplasms].
  • [Transliterated title] Amiloidosis secundaria (AA) asociada a tumoraciones benignas.
  • Amyloidosis is a systemic disorder characterized by the extracellular tissue deposition of insoluble, toxic aggregates in bundles of beta-sheet fibrillar proteins.
  • The later (AA), is caused by deposition of fibrils composed of fragments of the acute phase reactant serum amyloid A (SAA) and complicates chronic diseases with ongoing or recurring inflammation, namely; rheumatoid arthritis (RA), juvenile chronic polyarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, familial periodic fever syndromes (Familial Mediterranean Fever), chronic infections and furthermore, some neoplasms (mainly renal cell carcinoma and Hodgkin's disease).
  • Despite its less frequent association, some benign neoplasms can subsequently complicate to AA amyloidosis, therefore, an early diagnose and successful treatment may lead indeed, to regression of the amyloid disease.
  • Herein, we present two cases of AA amyloidosis, both of them caused by 2 different benign neoplasms: 1.
  • Further investigation lead to the finding of a hialyne-vascular type Castleman's disease located in the retroperitoneum (fig. 2).
  • Although other chronic inflammatory diseases complicate more frequently to AA amyloidosis, benign tumors have to be taken into account as a potential ethiological cause for secondary amyloidosis.

  • [Title] Cytokeratin 15 expression in apocrine mixed tumors of the skin and other benign neoplasms with apocrine differentiation.
  • To clarify the features of apocrine mixed tumors (AMT) of the skin among benign neoplasms with apocrine differentiation in their relationship to follicular stem cells, we investigated the immunohistochemical expression of CK15 (LHK15 and C8/144B), which is a relatively specific marker of hair follicle stem cells in the bulge, in 35 cases of eight different benign neoplasms with presumed apocrine differentiation.
  • None of the other benign neoplasms with presumed apocrine differentiation showed CK15 expression.
  • AMT of the skin are unique among benign neoplasms with apocrine differentiation in their substantial and constant CK15 expression, suggesting that they derive from multipotent epithelial stem cells in the bulge.
  • The partially positive reaction for CK15 in syringocystadenomas papilliferum and spiradenoma/cylindroma may depend on the ability to express CK15 in stem cells with an apocrine fate or result from the follicular and apocrine nature of this neoplasm.

  • The pAkt protein is closely related to Mdm2, and has not been previously reported in salivary gland tumors.
  • Overexpression of Mdm2 and pAkt was present in all the cell lines and tumors studied, whereas the expression of p53 and p21 proteins was considered absent.
  • In conclusion, the signaling pathway in benign salivary gland neoplasm showed an important participation of Mdm2 overexpression protein in tumor formation, progression through inactivation of p53 action, or both, and of pAkt overexpression through increased translocation of Mdm2 protein to cellular nuclei.

  • : e20681 Background: Neoplastic brachial plexopathy (NBP) may occur with benign or malignant neoplasms.
  • 18 MRIs were performed in patients with a known cancer diagnosis, 1 was performed in a patient with a benign thymoma, 1 with a neurofibroma and the remaining 17 MRIs were ordered for other conditions.
  • Of the 20 MRIs performed (18 in patients with cancer, 2 in patients with a history of benign neoplasms), 6 (30%) confirmed a diagnosis of NBP.
  • 27.8% (5/18) of patients with a diagnosis of cancer had NBP (3 had metastatic breast cancer, 2 had non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
  • Median age at diagnosis was 67 years (range 35 to 86 years).
  • Radiotherapy was the treatment of choice for 5 patients with cancer diagnosis, followed by chemotherapy also for one patient.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In our series in the past 5 years, 9% (6/66) of total number of MRIs of brachial plexus performed were positive for a diagnosis of NBP.
  • NBP is devastating diagnosis.

  • [Title] Current management of cystic neoplasms of the pancreas.
  • The majority of these cysts represent benign neoplasms; however, a significant fraction of these are pre-malignant or malignant.
  • Because the majority of these neoplasms are benign, many reports have advocated a selective approach to surgical resection.
  • Here we review the literature that has contributed to the development of our approach to the management of these cystic neoplasms.
  • We provide an overview of the key features in diagnosis and in predicting malignancy.
  • Particular attention is given to the natural history and management of intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMN).

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Synchronous unilateral parotid neoplasms. A case report.
  • The parotid gland is the most usual location of benign neoplasms affecting major salivary glands and quite often the recurrence of these tumours is noticed, specially in the case of pleomorphic adenoma.
  • The occurrence of multiple tumours in the parotid glands is rare and the majority of these are multifocal Warthin's tumors (papillary cystadenoma lymphomatosum).
  • The simultaneous development of tumours with different histological types is unusual and when it occurs, the most common combination is a pleomorphic adenoma and a Warthin's tumor.
  • There are many articles about Multiple Parotid Tumors (MPT) but only a few of them are focused on unilateral synchronous benings tumors, being pleomorphic adenoma and Warthin's these tumors.
  • The report describes a 55 year old female with a pleomorphic adenoma occurring synchronously with a Warthin's tumor within the superficial lobe of her left parotid gland.

  • AIM: The aim of the present study is to establish the relative frequency and distribution of benign and malignant epithelial neoplasms of salivary glands in the Pathology and Cytology Laboratory, STUDY DESIGN: Historic cohort.
  • The neoplasms were individualized by gender, age, race of the patients, anatomic localization of the lesions and histopathological diagnosis.
  • RESULTS: Out of 162,312 registered cases, 245 were salivary gland epithelial neoplasms and 187 (76.33%) were benign and 58 (23.67%) were malignant.
  • Pleomorphic adenoma was the most frequent benign neoplasm (89.94%) and adenoid cystic carcinoma represented the most prevalent malignant neoplasm (22.41%).
  • The benign neoplasms occurred mainly between the second and third decades of life and showed preference for female, while malignant neoplasms were diagnosed between the sixth and seventh decades of life and in women.
  • CONCLUSION: The data demonstrate that epidemiology profile of studied neoplasms corroborated the majority researched literature.

  • [Title] The effect of screening programmes on the treatment of benign breast neoplasms: observations from current practice in Italy.
  • In this study, we compare the incidences of treatments for benign and malignant neoplasms in the two groups.
  • We linked all incident cases of surgery for benign and malignant breast neoplasms, from the Hospital Information System (1999-2003) to the Mammographic Screening Information System (1999-2001).
  • We calculated incidence, adjusted for age and standardized breast cancer mortality ratio in each area of residence, for benign and malignant neoplasms surgery in non-yet-contacted and contacted woman.
  • RESULTS: The target population in Lazio is 681,000; 116,000 women were contacted during the study period and 3252 malignant and 1566 benign neoplasms were surgically treated.
  • Annual incidence was, respectively, 2.0/1000 and 1.1/1000 for malignant and benign neoplasms in women not contacted, and, respectively, 2.9/1000 and 1.1/1000 in the contacted population.
  • Among the contacted group, annual incidence was 4.3/1000 and 1.5/1000 in compliant women, and 2.0/1000 and 0.9/1000 in non-compliant women.
  • About one-half of the surgeries for benign neoplasms in compliant women were treated against the recommendation of the screening programme.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The implementation of the screening programme did not increase the incidence of treatment for benign neoplasms, and detected 50% more malignant neoplasms.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVES: To present our early experience with the transoral approach to the superomedial parapharyngeal space (PPS) and describe our technique for removal of these neoplasms.
  • METHODS: Eight patients with various neoplasms of the superomedial PPS were retrospectively reviewed for type of neoplasm, size, success with the transoral approach, need for conversion to another approach, length of hospitalization, and complications.
  • RESULTS: The transoral approach described herein safely allowed for en bloc resection of benign neoplasms with intraoperative control and exposure of the internal carotid artery.
  • Mean tumor size was 3.3 cm (range, 1.5 to 7 cm).
  • This technique is indicated for neoplasms with benign appearance on preoperative imaging or fine needle aspiration.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Skin Cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Perineural invasion is an important mechanism for local spread in certain malignant cutaneous neoplasms and is associated with aggressive tumor growth, increased frequency of recurrence, and increased morbidity and mortality.
  • There exists, however, a limited number of cutaneous and noncutaneous benign neoplasms in addition to reactive lesions that either demonstrates perineural involvement or mimics it.
  • Given the association of the term "invasion" with malignant neoplasms, we use the term "perineural involvement" to describe neoplastic cells of any type infiltrating within nerves.
  • Despite the presence of perineural involvement in these benign lesions, there is no evidence of aggressive behavior compared with similar examples which do not demonstrate perineural involvement.
  • The aim of this article is to review cutaneous and noncutaneous benign neoplasms and reactive conditions that may demonstrate or mimic perineural involvement.
  • Recognition of the spectrum of benign processes that may resemble perineural involvement may help prevent diagnostic confusion, misdiagnosis, and overly aggressive treatment.

  • The gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs) are composed of cells with a neuroendocrine phenotype.
  • Well-differentiated tumors, well-differentiated carcinomas, poorly differentiated carcinomas, functioning tumors (with a hormonal syndrome), and nonfunctioning tumors are identified.
  • To predict their clinical behavior, these neuroendocrine tumors are classified on the basis of their clinicopathological features, including size, local invasion, angioinvasion, proliferative activity, histological differentiation, and metastases, into neoplasms with benign, uncertain, low-grade malignant and high-grade malignant behavior.
  • In addition, a tumor/nodes/metastases classification and a grading system are presented.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Endoscopic sinus surgery for benign and malignant nasal and sinus neoplasm.
  • With increased skill with endoscopic surgical technique, advanced technologies such as intraoperative imaging systems, and a better understanding of the complex anatomy of the paranasal sinuses and surrounding vital structures, many otolaryngologists have increasingly applied their expertise in endoscopic sinus surgery to the resection of nasal and sinus neoplasms.
  • The following represents a review of the recent literature on the latest trends regarding endoscopic resection of nasal and paranasal sinus neoplasms.
  • RECENT FINDINGS: There has been an increasing popularity in the removal of nasal and paranasal sinus neoplasms through an endoscopic approach.
  • In the recent literature, emphasis has been on the endoscopic surgery of benign tumors, especially inverted papilloma and nasopharyngeal angiofibroma.
  • Other benign neoplasms have also been reported, but only in small case reports.
  • There have been a few recent reports supporting endoscopic removal of malignant neoplasms as well.
  • Especially for the more common benign neoplasms, such as inverted papilloma and early stage angiofibroma.
  • En bloc resection is not necessary to achieve oncologic cure.
  • Large tumor size, intracranial or orbital extension, and extensive frontal or infratemporal fossa involvement are relative, but not absolute limitations.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Orbital cavernomas are low-flow vascular malformations that are the most common benign neoplasms of the orbit in adults, typically becoming symptomatic in the middle age.
  • The pathologic slides were evaluated, and additional immunohistochemical stains were done if necessary to obtain diagnosis.
  • Two of them were haemorrhagic lymphangiomas, and one was a solitary fibrous tumour.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Haemorrhagic lymphangiomas and other vascular tumours may mimic orbital cavernomas regarding anamnesis, radiologic and intraoperative findings and gross examination.
  • Therefore, exact histologic evaluation is necessary to get the correct diagnosis.

  • [Title] [Activation of sonic hedgehog signaling in keratocystic odontogenic tumors].
  • [Transliterated title] Aktivierung des Sonic-hedgehog-Signalwegs in keratozystischen odontogenen Tumoren.
  • BACKGROUND: Keratocystic odontogenic tumors are benign neoplasms of the viscerocranium that occur sporadically as well as in association with Gorlin-Goltz syndrome.
  • Aberrant activation of sonic hedgehog signaling has been reported for sporadic and hereditary basal cell carcinoma caused by specific genetic mutations, but for keratocystic odontogenic tumors, the role of aberrant sonic hedgehog signaling has not yet been evaluated in detail.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: In the present study, 131 keratocystic odontogenic tumors were analyzed by immunohistochemistry for the expression of sonic hedgehog signaling proteins SHH, PTCH1, SMO, GLI1, and NMYC on tissue microarray sections.
  • RESULTS: High expression of the analyzed proteins-between 67.3% (PTCH1) and 92.9% (SHH)-was found in the epithelial compartment of the keratocystic odontogenic tumors analyzed.
  • In the stromal compartment of the tumors, high expression of the target proteins was found significantly less frequently (all p-values <0.001).
  • CONCLUSION: Aberrant sonic hedgehog signaling is critically involved in the molecular pathogenesis of keratocystic odontogenic tumors.
  • Because of high recurrence rates after local excision, more radical surgical approaches are recommended for treating keratocystic odontogenic tumors.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • In 2004, the World Health Organization classified the renal oncocytomas as benign neoplasms of the kidney.
  • There are reports of subtypes of renal tumors, with similar histological morphology to oncocytoma, but with malignant potential, one of these tumors is the eosinophilic variant of chromophobe renal cell carcinoma.
  • It is important to characterize the histological features and the subtype of tumor, as this predicts biological behavior and cancer-specific survival rate.
  • A rare case of a liver metastasis from a focal area of eosinophilic variant of chromophobe renal cell carcinoma mixed in oncocytoma in a 69-year-old woman is reported.
  • Although some renal tumors may contain oncocytoma and eosinophilic variant of chromophobe renal cell carcinoma histology, caution should be exercised while diagnosing oncocytomas in needle biopsies as there may be unsampled area of chromophobe carcinoma which has a potential for metastatic spread representing a wolf in sheep's clothing.

  • Lipoma is a benign tumour of mesenchymal origin with a very rare occurrence in the upper aero-digestive tract.
  • For a precise pre-operative diagnosis, indirect or direct laryngoscopy (flexible fibre-optic laryngoscopy) can be employed or, if necessary, also imaging techniques such as computed tomography scan and magnetic resonance imaging scan.
  • It is very important to completely remove these benign neoplasms in order to avoid local recurrence.
  • The present report referring to a case of laryngeal lipoma removed through an external surgical approach, aims to demonstrate that the choice of an external surgical approach is required for complete surgical removal of a large lipoma in order to prevent any possible recurrence.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Papillary fibroelastomas are the most common benign neoplasms of the cardiac valvular structures, and they are being recognized more frequently because of higher-resolution imaging technology.
  • Surgical resection should be offered to all patients who have symptoms and to asymptomatic patients who have pedunculated lesions or tumors larger than 1 cm in diameter.
  • Valve-sparing excision produces good long-term results in most instances.Herein, we present the case of a patient who was scheduled for elective myocardial revascularization and in whom an aortic valve papillary fibroelastoma was discovered incidentally during routine intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography.
  • The timely recognition of this asymptomatic tumor enabled a modified operative approach: the patient underwent myocardial revascularization with concomitant valve-sparing resection of the tumor.
  • We discuss the pathophysiology of fibroelastomas of the aortic valve and operative approaches to the management of these tumors when they are discovered incidentally.

  • [Title] A study of the utility of silver nucleolar organizer regions in categorization and prognosis of salivary gland tumors.
  • BACKGROUND: this study aimed at assessing the utility of silver nucleolar organizer region (AgNOR) staining in categorization and prognostication of salivary gland tumors.
  • METHODS: Twenty-seven malignant salivary gland tumors, 16 benign neoplasms, and 6 chronic sialadenitis lesions were stained using the technique described by Ploton et al. (1986).
  • RESULTS: The mean AgNOR counts for inflammatory lesions (1.67 +/- 0.19) and benign neoplasms (1.67 +/- 0.11), were less than for malignant neoplasms (3.59 +/- 0.55), P < .05.
  • There was no significant difference between the mean AgNOR counts of different specific histological types and grades of malignant neoplasms.
  • In addition, no correlation was found between mean AgNOR counts and the clinical course of malignant or benign salivary gland neoplasms.
  • CONCLUSION: Our results suggest that AgNOR staining is useful for distinguishing benign from malignant lesions, but is neither helpful for discriminating between histological types and grades of malignant neoplasms, nor prognostication of malignant salivary gland neoplasms.

  • [Title] Cystic lesions of the pancreas: clinical and pathologic review of cases in a five year period.
  • CONTEXT: Cystic lesions of the pancreas represent an important subgroup of pancreatic tumors.
  • SETTING: Cases were subclassified in diagnostic categories and were grouped according to the nature of the lesion (non-neoplastic vs. neoplastic).
  • Among the 97 cysts, five (5.2%) were non-neoplastic and 92 (94.8%) were neoplastic (59.8% benign, 17.5% borderline, 17.5% malignant).
  • Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm was the most common diagnosis (n=51; 52.6%) followed by serous cystic neoplasm (n=20; 20.6%) and mucinous cystic neoplasm (n=13; 13.4%).
  • Tumor size was significantly lower in benign neoplastic lesions (P=0.045).
  • Incidental identification was more frequent in benign lesions (P=0.028), whereas malignant lesions were more frequently symptomatic (P=0.001).
  • Among this heterogeneous group, benign neoplasms predominate, particularly those with mucinous lining.
  • Age at presentation, gender, location and tumor size are highly variable, with the exception of solid pseudopapillary tumor.
