  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a high-resolution, near-IR imaging modality capable of visualizing microscopic features within tissue.
  • OCT has the potential to provide in vivo assessment of tissue involvement by cancer.
  • Examples include both benign human axillary lymph nodes and nodes containing metastatic breast carcinoma.
  • Through accurate correlation with the histologic gold standard, OCT is shown to enable differentiation of lymph node tissue from surrounding adipose tissue, reveal nodal structures such as germinal centers and intranodal vessels, and show both diffuse and well circumscribed patterns of metastatic node involvement.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Optical breast cancer margin assessment: an observational study of the effects of tissue heterogeneity on optical contrast.
  • Breast tissue is markedly heterogeneous, which makes distinguishing small foci of cancer within the spectrum of normal tissue potentially challenging.
  • Here, we evaluate ex-vivo breast tissue and determine which sources of optical contrast have the potential to detect malignancy at the margins in women of differing breast composition.
  • Normal and malignant sites were compared before stratifying the data by tissue type and depth and computing statistical differences.
  • The frequencies of the normal tissue types were separated by menopausal status and compared to the corresponding optical properties.
  • The sites stratified according to normal tissue type (fibro-glandular (FG), fibro-adipose (FA), and adipose (A)) or disease type (invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC) and ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS)) showed that FG exhibited increased < μs' > and A showed increased [β-carotene] within normal tissues.
  • The diagnostic ability of the optical parameters was affected by distance of tumor from the margin as well as menopausal status.
  • Due to decreased fibrous content and increased adipose content, normal sites in post-menopausal patients exhibited lower < μs' >, but higher [β-carotene] than pre-menopausal patients.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The data indicate that the ability of an optical parameter to differentiate benign from malignant breast tissues may be dictated by patient demographics.
  • Scattering differentiated between malignant and adipose sites and would be most effective in post-menopausal women.

  • Lipoma is the most common neoplasm of mesenchyme, and several subtypes have been described that vary according to their location and the presence of other tissue elements.
  • Angiomyxolipoma is a very rare variant that consists of an admixture of adipose and myxoid elements with numerous vascular structures.
  • It should be differentiated from other subtypes of benign and malignant lipomas.
  • The histopathologic findings showed alternating nests of myxoid and adipose tissue containing dilated blood vessels, which was consistent with angiomyxolipoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Lipoblastic nerve sheath tumors: report of a distinctive variant of neural soft tissue neoplasm with adipocytic differentiation.
  • Benign nerve sheath tumors of soft tissue can occasionally adopt unusual or unfamiliar morphologic appearances that may introduce difficulties for diagnosis, such as multinucleation, bizarre nuclei, intranuclear vacuoles, and other degenerative changes.
  • Tumor cells adopting a signet-ring or lipoblast-like configuration, however, are mostly associated with epithelial malignancies, liposarcoma and melanoma, and have been only rarely observed in spindle cell tumors of soft tissue.
  • We report 5 cases of benign nerve sheath neoplasms that displayed prominent signet-ring cells with lipoblast-like features.

  • [Title] Isolated solitary ducts (naked ducts) in adipose tissue: a specific but underappreciated finding of pancreatic adenocarcinoma and one of the potential reasons of understaging and high recurrence rate.
  • The glandular units of invasive carcinoma are often well formed with well-polarized cells, appearing deceptively benign.
  • We recently noted isolated solitary ductal units (ISDs) in adipose tissue to be a reliable indicator of adenocarcinoma.
  • ISD was defined as a solitary gland lying individually in adipose tissue, either directly abutting adipocytes or separated from them by only a thin rim of fibromuscular tissue.
  • ISDs were often located in histologic sections taken for the evaluation of the retroperitoneal margin and pancreatic-free surfaces where adipose tissue is more abundant.
  • In conclusion, ISD lying in adipose tissue unaccompanied by other elements, present in 47.6% of pancreatic resections when peripancreatic soft tissues away from the tumor are sampled, is a very specific finding for carcinoma that may be instrumental in the diagnosis and staging of carcinoma as well as margin evaluation.

  • [Title] Subconjunctival herniated orbital fat: A benign adipocytic lesion that may mimic pleomorphic lipoma and atypical lipomatous tumor.
  • Over the past several years, we have seen a number of cases in which this prolapsed fat was confused pathologically with a neoplasm of adipocytic lineage, specifically pleomorphic lipoma and atypical lipomatous neoplasm (well-differentiated liposarcoma).
  • We conclude that subconjunctival herniated orbital fat commonly contains multinucleated floretlike giant cells, fibrous septae, and Lochkern cells, features that may result in diagnostic confusion with pleomorphic lipoma and atypical lipomatous neoplasms.
  • Importantly, specific diagnostic features, such as aggregates of bland spindled cells associated with wiry collagen, as seen in pleomorphic lipoma, and enlarged hyperchromatic cells within fibrous septae, as in atypical lipomatous neoplasms, are entirely absent in herniated orbital fat.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Although the majority of adrenal lesions are benign, in patients with an extra-adrenal primary cancer the probability of an adrenal mass being a metastasis is 52%.
  • Unfortunately, there may be significant overlap between the imaging appearances of benign lesions such as lipid-poor adenomas and malignant lesions, particularly metastases and small adrenal carcinomas.
  • This review highlights recent advances in radiological imaging of adrenal lesions and we discuss the relative merits of CT and magnetic resonance imaging to aid the identification of benign and malignant adrenal lesions and their roles, in combination with biochemical and clinical data, in recognizing common pathologies such as adrenal adenoma, phaeochromocytoma, carcinoma and metastases.
  • We also discuss the radiological characteristics of rarer adrenal lesions including lymphoma, neuroblastic tumours (neuroblastoma, ganglioneuroblastoma, and ganglioneuroma), lipomatous tumours (myelolipoma, angiolipoma, teratoma, lipoma and liposarcoma), in addition to hemangioma, hemangiosarcoma and leiomyosarcoma.

  • [Title] Does the presence of focal normal marrow fat signal within a tumor on MRI exclude malignancy? An analysis of 184 histologically proven tumors of the pelvic and appendicular skeleton.
  • OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to determine if the presence of focal normal bone marrow fat signal within a tumor on magnetic resonance imaging excludes malignancy.
  • There were 111 malignant and 73 benign tumors.
  • Two radiologists at each institution, blinded to the diagnosis, reviewed the MRIs independently and reported the presence or absence of normal marrow fat signal within the tumor based upon T1-weighted imaging without fat suppression and T2-weighted imaging with fat suppression and/or short inversion-time inversion recovery (STIR).
  • For each institution, a Fisher's exact test was used to compare the frequency of focal normal marrow fat signal in benign and malignant tumors.
  • Fisher's exact test was also used to compare the frequency of intratumoral fat in benign and malignant lesions for the pooled sample.
  • There were three discrepancies (one malignant and two benign) at site 1 and four discrepancies (two malignant and two benign) at site 2.
  • Reader consensus at site 1 identified normal marrow fat signal within 1 of 50 (2.0%) malignant and three of 14 (21.4%) benign tumors.
  • Reader consensus at site 2 identified normal marrow fat signal within three of 61 (4.9%) malignant and 14 of 59 (23.7%) benign tumors.
  • For the pooled consensus, the frequency of intratumoral fat in benign lesions (17/73, 23.3%) is significantly greater than the frequency in malignant lesions (4/111, 3.6%), p < 0.001.
  • CONCLUSION: The presence of focal normal marrow signal within a tumor is highly suggestive of a benign tumor.

  • As a result, benign lesions are sometimes surgically removed.
  • One such condition, which is poorly defined in the literature, is referred to as lipomatous pseudohypertrophy (LPH) of the pancreas.
  • Within the adipose tissue, scattered microscopic foci of pancreatic parenchyma could be seen.
  • CONCLUSION: Lipomatous pseudohypertrophy of the pancreas is a distinct entity characterized by localized/diffuse replacement of pancreatic parenchyma with mature adipose tissue.
  • This entity should be considered when evaluating patients with a new diagnosis of a hypodense pancreatic neoplasm on imaging.

  • [Title] Preoperative diagnosis of renal angiomyolipoma with fine needle aspiration cytology: a report of 3 cases.
  • BACKGROUND: Angiomyolipoma is a rare benign neoplasm, commonly involving the kidney.
  • Preoperative diagnosis on fine needle aspiration cytology can confirm the diagnosis, reducing the chances of unnecessary surgery.
  • Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) smears showed a few cohesive syncytial fragments with adipocytes, spindle cells and isolated single cells with foamy cytoplasm; a diagnosis of AML was made.
  • The diagnosis was confirmed on histopathology, which showed mature adipose tissue, tortuous and thick-walled blood vessels lacking elastic tissue lamina and bundles of smooth muscles that seemed to emanate from the blood vessels.
  • CONCLUSION: A preoperative diagnosis of renal AML is of great importance for correct management.
  • Preoperative FNAC along with computed tomographic findings and immunocytochemical analysis of FNAC smears with HNB-45 can confirm the diagnosis of AML, thus preventing unindicated nephrectomy.

  • Computed tomorraphy and magnetic resonance imaging showed that the tumor was mixed with muscle and fat tissue, faintly enhanced, and located at the lower portion of the left kidney.
  • Although renal angiomyolipoma (AML) was suspected from these findings, we could not rule out a malignant tumor.
  • Histopathological examination revealed the tumor composed of smooth muscle and mature adipose tissue without cytological atypia arising from the renal capsule.
  • The tumor contained no AML-like blood vessels, and was negative for HMB-45 staining.
  • The final diagnosis was myolipoma arising from the renal capsule.
  • Myolipoma is a rare benign neoplasm in the soft tissue of retroperitoneum and abdominal cavity.
  • Since it is difficult to distinguish myolipoma from other benign and malignant tumors with fat tissue only by imaging studies, a surgical approach should be considered.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Pulmonary hamartoma is a benign neoplasm that rarely recurs or undergoes malignant transformation.
  • Herein, we report a 48-year-old woman with a history of an incomplete excised nonchondroid pulmonary hamartoma presenting as an indolent tumor recurrence.
  • Excision of the tumor revealed a well-differentiated liposarcoma arising from the hamartomatous component.
  • These findings suggest that the formation of the 12q14-q15 chromosome amplicon, the characteristic cytogenetic finding of well-differentiated liposarcomas and the structural genomic component of the supernumerary ring and giant rod chromosomes, occurred before the morphologic changes characteristic of these malignant adipose tissue tumors and likely represents a very early molecular event in their development.

  • One such entity is lipoblastoma, which is a benign lipomatous tumour that often exhibits rearrangements of chromosome bands 8q11-13, and the gene PLAG1 has been implicated as the target of these chromosomal changes.
  • All lipomatous tumours karyotyped at the Norwegian Radium Hospital were reviewed, looking for rearrangements of 8q11-13.
  • The findings raise the question as to what extent the diagnosis lipoblastoma should be based on histopathological or cytogenetic/molecular data or a combination thereof.
  • When karyotypic information from this series was combined with available literature data, it was found that the sensitivity of 8q11-13 rearrangements for diagnosing lipoblastomas when found in a lipomatous tumour was 77% and that the corresponding specificity was 98%.
  • The validity of these calculations of the diagnostic information provided by the cytogenetic findings is, of course, totally dependent on the morphological diagnosis made in each case.
  • Regardless of what the precise phenotypic diagnosis was, it is suggested that lipomatous tumours with 8q11-13 rearrangement constitute a distinct pathogenetic entity.
  • When selective therapies tailor-made against the specific pathogenetic rearrangement become available, it will become mandatory to pay more attention to the genetic constitution of the tumour cells than to their phenotypic appearance.

  • Adiopcyte fatty acid binding-protein(A-FABP) is another protein found in adipose tissue;therefore, we investigated the association of A-FABP with the occurrence and prognosis of breast cancer.
  • In our study,200 women attending the University of Ulm for breast surgery between the years 2005 and 2007 were included;159 had histologically confirmed breast cancer; 41 had histologically confirmed benign lesions.
  • Serum levels ofA-FABP, leptin, and adiponectin were measured, and their relationship to body-mass-index (BMI), breast cancer, and tumor characteristics were analyzed; logistic regression model was adjusted to age, BMI, menopausal status, use of Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), and family history of breast cancer.
  • Concerning tumor characteristics,A-FABP was positively connected with tumor size (T C 2 cm, P.05) and nodal-status (P.05).Our study reveals that high A-FABP serum levels are associated with obesity, breast cancer risk, and adverse tumor characteristics.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The T1-weighted MRI images showed a tumor hyperintensity, the T2-weighted images showed tumor isointensity and mild contrast enhancement.
  • Due to the scalloping of L3/L4 foramen with root enlargement and slow evolution (more than one year between the first symptom and surgery without clinical worsening), the initial preoperative diagnosis was L3 schwannoma.
  • The tumor was composed of irregular melanocytoid cells with high proliferation index (20%).
  • So, the final diagnosis was intradural primitive malignant melanoma.
  • Radiotherapy was performed on the site of the tumor.
  • The most common tumor with root enlargement and bony scalloping is the benign schwannoma.
  • Despite the above described radiological features, MRI characteristics (hyperintensity when images are T1-weighted) suggest a melanocytic tumor, a tumor with a high adipose component or an intratumoral bleeding.
  • Specific MRI sequences can eliminate adipose tissue tumor, but diagnosis between melanin and methemoglobin is still difficult.
  • According to the index of proliferation, a primitive central melanocytic lesion can be a meningeal melanocytoma (considered as benign) or a primitive malignant melanoma.
  • The histological features of malignant lesion with benign clinical features lead to interrogation upon the actual pathologic classification.

  • CT is the most accurate diagnostic technique to identify the adipose tissue, but it often cannot make a differential diagnosis differentiating it from other anterior mediastinal masses; transthoracic biopsy also reveals the presence of fatty tissue, but a definitive diagnosis can only be achieved by means of surgical excision, which is also curative.
  • We describe the case of a young woman who presented with a fatty neoplasm of the anterior mediastinum.

  • CONCLUSIONS: Anastomosing hemangioma of the genitourinary tract is a rare neoplasm displaying some overlapping features of both sinusoidal hemangioma and hobnail hemangioma of soft tissue and skin.
  • However, in our opinion, it is a unique neoplasm with a proclivity for the kidney.
  • Its anastomosing appearance can lead to concern for angiosarcoma but, despite small numbers and limited follow-up in our series, evidence to date supports that the lesion is benign.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • INTRODUCTION: Several neoplasms of the adipose tissue can involve the soft tissues of the head and neck region.
  • These neoplasms are mainly treated surgically and an accurate histological examination is mandatory for a precise diagnosis.
  • This approach allowed adequate resection of the neoplasm with minimal damage to the adjacent tissues, thus reducing post-surgical scarring.
  • CONCLUSION: Diode laser surgery for the treatment of benign lesions of the oral mucosa appears to be a convenient alternative to conventional blade surgery and has proved to be effective for the excision of fibrolipoma of the lip.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Total removal of the tumor was achieved.
  • The pathological examination showed a benign teratoma containing mature cartilage, muscle, adipose tissue, and glandular tissue.
  • CONCLUSION: Accompanying a spinal dysraphic state, the mature teratoma in our case may support the idea of a tumor actually arising from a dysraphism and growing outward to produce the mass.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVE: To study the histopathological features of mesenchymal tumors of the uterine corpus with heterologous and hematopoietic components, and review their histogenesis and differential diagnosis from other neoplastic and non-neoplastic lesions.
  • METHODS: Ten cases of mesenchymal tumors of the uterine corpus, massively infiltrated by hematopoioetic cells, or composed of other benign heterologous elements (adipose tissue in the present cases) were retrieved from the archival files of our laboratory and studied histopathologically.
  • RESULTS: Six of our studied cases were diagnosed as leiomyomas, two as lipoleiomyomas, one as a symplastic lipoleiomyoma, and one as an endometrial stromal tumor.
  • The endometrial stromal tumor was severely infiltrated by histiocytes, and was positive for vimentin, CD10, PgR and negative for actin, desmin, ER and caldesmon.
  • CONCLUSION: The presence of hematopoietic or heterologous elements within an otherwise bland uterine leiomyoma or endometrial stromal tumor may give rise to diagnostic difficulties.
  • Regularity of the tumor margins, low mitotic activity and absence of nuclear atypia or necrosis should be established for the exclusion of a malignancy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Atypical lipomatous tumor with rare structural rearrangements involving chromosomes 8 and 12.
  • Atypical lipomatous tumor (ALT), an intermediate malignant neoplasm of soft tissues, is characterized by the presence of supernumerary ring and giant marker chromosomes.
  • These findings are consistent with previous reports that the ALT phenotype may be associated with a low or moderate level of gene amplification, whereas truncation of HMGA2 has been observed in both ALTs and benign lipomas.
  • Whether ALTs with these types of aberrations have a lower risk of tumor progression than ALTs with the notoriously mitotically unstable ring and giant marker chromosomes remains to be investigated.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Well-differentiated liposarcoma/atypical lipomatous tumor can be difficult to differentiate from benign lipomatous tumors, especially on limited biopsy material.
  • Adjunctive tests for MDM2 (murine double minute 2) have proven useful in whole-tissue sections; however, their utility has not been determined within the increasingly popular core needle biopsy.
  • Herein, we compare the ability of MDM2 immunohistochemistry and MDM2 fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) to discriminate benign lipomatous tumors from well-differentiated liposarcoma on core needle biopsies.
  • Well-differentiated liposarcoma (n=17) and an assortment of benign lipomatous tumors (n=37), which had concurrent or previous core needle biopsies, and resection specimens were subjected to both MDM2 immunohistochemistry and MDM2 FISH on both whole-tissue sections and corresponding core needle biopsy sections.
  • Percentage tumor cells positive for MDM2 by immunohistochemistry and an MDM2:CEP12 FISH ratio was calculated in each biopsy and resection specimen pair and the results were compared.
  • The average MDM2:CEP12 ratio was similar in the biopsy material compared with the whole-tissue sections in both well-differentiated liposarcoma and the benign lipomatous tumor group of neoplasms.
  • Detection of MDM2 amplification by FISH is a more sensitive and specific adjunctive test than MDM2 immunohistochemistry to differentiate well-differentiated liposarcoma from various benign lipomatous tumors, especially on limited tissue samples.
