  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Chest wall syndrome among primary care patients: a cohort study.
  • BACKGROUND: The epidemiology of chest pain differs strongly between outpatient and emergency settings.
  • In general practice, the most frequent cause is the chest wall pain.
  • The aims of the study are to describe the clinical aspects of chest wall syndrome (CWS).
  • METHODS: Prospective, observational, cohort study of patients attending 58 private practices over a five-week period from March to May 2001 with undifferentiated chest pain.
  • RESULTS: Among 24 620 consultations, we observed 672 cases of chest pain and 300 (44.6%) patients had a diagnosis of chest wall syndrome.
  • CWS coexisted with coronary disease in 19 and neoplasm in 6.
  • CONCLUSION: CWS is common and benign, but leads to anxiety and recurred frequently.
  • Because the majority of chest wall pain is left-sided, the possibility of coexistence with coronary disease needs careful consideration.

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.
  • The OMF Pathology Department Registry was searched for cases coded from 1990 to the present as "SEF," "fibrosarcoma not otherwise specified" or "neoplasm of uncertain histiogenesis."
  • Tumor location included the infra-temporal fossa, buccal mucosa (recurrence extending into bone), anterior mandible (intraosseous primary, focally extending into soft tissue), and left parotid and submandibular gland (with metaplastic bone) regions.
  • Tumor sizes ranged from 1.0 to 5.7 cm, median 3.5 cm.
  • The spindled to primarily epithelioid tumor cells formed moderately cellular sheets and cords of irregularly contoured medium to large, round to oval, occasionally overlapping nuclei, indistinct nucleoli, wispy eosinophilic (retracting) cytoplasm, and distinctive cytoplasmic borders, embedded in osteoid-like stroma.
  • Immunohistochemically, the tumor cells were positive for vimentin, 1 case focally for CD34, whereas all cases were negative for S100 protein, keratins, EMA, desmin, and SMA.
  • Metastatic disease was present in 2 cases, to chest wall and lumbar/thoracic spine at 12 and 21 months, respectively.
  • The differential diagnosis for these tumors in this site includes sclerosing carcinoma, Ewing/PNET, osteosarcoma, osteoblastoma, and benign and malignant myoepithelial salivary gland tumors.
  • The collagen, focal spindle cell features, HPC-like vasculature, and weak focal CD34 reactivity in one case might have raised a possible relationship between OMFRSEF and low grade malignant solitary fibrous tumor, but the intraosseous propensity, epithelioid features and relative lack of CD34 make this a distinctive entity.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Management of primary chest wall tumors: 14 years' clinical experience.
  • BACKGROUND: Primary chest wall tumor is rare but it encompasses tumors of various origins.
  • We analyzed our experience with primary chest wall tumors with emphasis on its demographic presentation and management.
  • METHODS: From 1991 to 2004, 62 patients with the diagnosis of primary chest wall tumors were enrolled.
  • Lipoma, chest wall metastasis, direct invasion from nearby malignancy, infection, and inflammation of chest wall were excluded.
  • Malignant and benign tumors were equally distributed.
  • Chondrosarcoma and lymphoma were the 2 most common types of malignant chest wall tumors.
  • Nine of 31 patients (29.0%) with benign chest wall tumors were free of symptoms whereas patients with malignant chest wall tumors were all symptomatic (p = 0.002).
  • All patients with primary chest wall tumors, except 6 who had medical treatment only, underwent surgical resection.
  • Patients with malignant chest wall tumors were older than those with benign tumors (p < 0.001).
  • The mean largest diameter of tumors was also larger in malignant tumors than in benign tumors (p = 0.04).
  • CONCLUSION: Patients with primary malignant chest wall neoplasm were older than those with benign tumors.
  • The mean size of malignant tumors was larger than that of benign tumors.
  • Adequate surgical resection remains the treatment of choice for patients with primary chest wall tumors.
  • For patients with isolated chest wall lymphoma, surgical resection followed by chemotherapy can be considered to obtain a better outcome.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Thymus Cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • A 63-year-old female, who was noticed a chest mass approximately 4 cm in diameter on a chest X-ray, was admitted to our hospital.
  • We thought that it was a benign chest wall tumor such as a neurogenic tumor by the findings of the chest computed tomography (CT).
  • Resection of the tumor was performed.
  • Neurogenic tumor was suspected by the frozen section.
  • Since she had undergone thymothymectomy 23-years ago, the tumor was considered to be a pleural recurrence of thymoma.
  • We thoroughly checked the chest CT again, and detected another tumor at the right of the thoracic vertebra.
  • Third surgery was performed and the tumor was resected.
  • Thymomas are low-grade malignant tumor, but long-term clinical follow-up is necessary.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Imaging findings of chest wall lesions on breast sonography.
  • OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this presentation is to illustrate the sonographic findings of chest wall lesions that were depicted on breast sonography.
  • METHODS: Chest wall lesions detected during breast sonography were collected and reviewed retrospectively.
  • RESULTS: The sonographic findings of normal chest walls and various pathologic chest wall lesions, including inflammatory lesions, benign neoplasms, and malignant neoplasms, are discussed.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Familiarity with normal sonographic anatomy and chest wall lesions could be helpful in differentiating a chest wall lesion from a breast lesion and in showing whether the origin of any palpable breast lump is in the breast parenchyma or the chest wall on breast sonography.

COS Scholar Universe. author profiles.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura.
  • BACKGROUND: The solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura (SFTP) is a rare primary tumor arising from mesenchymal cells in the areolar tissue subjacent to the mesothelial-lined pleura.
  • The tumor appears to be unrelated to malignant pleural mesothelioma, the most common primary tumor of the pleura.
  • METHODS: In just over half of these cases, the neoplasm presents as an asymptomatic mass, is often quite large, and is benign in 78% to 88% of patients.
  • The initial evaluation and diagnosis, tumor classification, surgical treatment, results of therapy, and long-term prognosis are reviewed, based on a selective review of the literature from MEDLINE beginning 1980.
  • RESULTS: Complete en bloc surgical resection is the preferred treatment of benign and malignant varieties of the tumor.
  • Sessile tumors on the chest wall require wide local excision, often with chest wall resection because of their propensity for local recurrence.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Benign SFTP has a high cure rate and an 8% local recurrence rate that is usually amenable to curative re-excision.
  • The majority of patients with recurrent disease die of the tumor within 2 years.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Aspiration cytology of mesenchymal hamartoma of the chest wall in an infant: a case report.
  • BACKGROUND: Mesenchymal hamartoma of the chest wall is an extremely uncommon lesion of infants.
  • Radiologic features simulate a malignant neoplasm; however, pathologic examination demonstrates an admixture of fibroblasts, benign cartilage and woven bone.
  • CASE: A 5-month-old infant presented with a large right chest wall swelling.
  • A cytologic diagnosis of a benign chondroid, possibly hamartomatous lesion was given, which was confirmed as mesenchymal hamartoma on histopathologic examination.
  • CONCLUSION: Mesenchymal hamartoma is a rare chest wall lesion that can be diagnosed on cytology, provided that the cytopathologist is aware of this uncommon entity and appreciates the benign cytologic features.

  • [Title] Dermatomyofibroma: clinicopathologic and immunohistochemical analysis of 56 cases and reappraisal of a rare and distinct cutaneous neoplasm.
  • Dermatomyofibroma represents a rare and distinct benign cutaneous mesenchymal neoplasm of fibroblastic/myofibroblastic differentiation.
  • The shoulder (13 cases) was the anatomic site most commonly affected, followed by the upper arm (7 cases), the neck (6 cases), the thigh (6 cases), the chest wall (4 cases), the back (3 cases), the axillary fold (2 cases), the abdominal wall (2 cases), and 1 case each was seen on the forearm, the buttock, and the popliteal fossa (exact anatomic location was unknown in 10 cases).
  • Histologically, an ill-defined, plaque-like dermal neoplasm of varying cellularity was seen in all cases, composed of bland spindle-shaped tumor cells often oriented parallel to the overlying epidermis.
  • Immunohistochemically, tumor cells in 11 of 48 cases tested stained positively for alpha-smooth muscle actin, and a focal expression of this marker was noted in 20 cases.

  • [Title] Cardiac inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor: a "benign" neoplasm that may result in syncope, myocardial infarction, and sudden death.
  • All lesions were endocardial-based, located in the right atrium (1), right ventricular inflow/tricuspid valve (1), right ventricular outflow (3), mitral valve (3), aortic valve/left coronary sinus (1), and left ventricular free wall (1).
  • Symptoms included shortness of breath or dyspnea (3), syncope (2), chest pain (1), transient ischemic attacks (1), and fever with myalgias (1).
  • All tumors were surgical resections, except 1 tumor that resulted in sudden coronary death and that was diagnosed at autopsy, and 1 tumor that embolized into the coronary artery and was treated by cardiac transplant.
  • Although there were frequent collagen bundles interspersed among the tumor cells, there were no large areas of dense fibrosis.

  • [Title] Assessment of tumor recurrence in patients with colorectal cancer and elevated carcinoembryonic antigen level: FDG PET/CT versus contrast-enhanced 64-MDCT of the chest and abdomen.
  • OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to compare FDG PET/CT and contrast-enhanced 64-MDCT of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis in the detection of tumor recurrence in patients with colorectal cancer and an elevated level of carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA).
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective analysis included 50 patients (31 men, 19 women; mean age, 61 years; range, 28-89 years) with 55 clinical events of elevated or increasing CEA level who underwent FDG PET/CT and MDCT for suspected tumor recurrence.
  • Fifty-four of 61 tumor sites suspected as tumor recurrence with any imaging technique were found to be local recurrence or metastatic colorectal cancer at final analysis.
  • The other seven sites were one separate malignant tumor (small lymphocytic lymphoma) and six benign lesions.
  • One site of tumor recurrence was missed prospectively at both MDCT and PET/CT.
  • In a tumor site-based analysis, the sensitivities of PET/CT and MDCT were 98.1% and 66.7% (p < 0.0001), and the specificities were 75% and 62.5% (p = 0.56).
  • Tumors correctly identified with PET/CT and missed with MDCT were local recurrence in the presacral space (n = 5), metastatic subcentimeter lymph nodes (n = 4), peritoneal deposits (n = 3), and recurrences at the periphery of radiofrequency ablated metastatic lesions of the liver (n = 2) and in the abdominal wall (n = 1), liver (n = 1), and uterine cervix (n = 1).

  • Although considered a benign lesion, it can be very aggressive locally and has a high rate of local recurrence after incomplete surgical excision.
  • We present two cases of desmoplastic fibroma involving this unusual location with lytic costal lesion and chest wall extension.
  • Histological examination after surgical resection revealed that the tumor consisted of spindle cells with small, elongated nuclei in a background of numerous collagen fibers and infiltrating lamellar bone.

  • Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is an aggressive pleural tumor with a complex growth pattern.
  • Computed tomography (CT) has been the mainstay in the clinical evaluation of MPM; however it underestimates early chest wall invasion, peritoneal involvement, and has well-known limitations in nodal metastatic evaluation.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is superior to CT, both in the differentiation of malignant from benign pleural disease and in the assessment of chest wall and diaphragmatic involvement.
  • Perfusion and diffusion MRI are promising new techniques for the assessment of tumor cellularity and microvasculature and can be used for quantitative and qualitative assessment of treatment response.
  • Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) is useful for the differentiation of benign from malignant lesions, for staging, and for monitoring response to therapy.

  • Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is an aggressive tumor that arises from the pleura and frequently extends to adjacent structures.
  • Major findings include nodular pleural thickening, unilateral pleural effusion, and tumor invasion of adjacent structures.
  • CT tends to underestimate early chest wall invasion and peritoneal involvement and has well-known limitations in the evaluation of lymph node metastases.
  • Because of its excellent contrast resolution, MRI is superior to CT, both in the differentiation of malignant from benign pleural disease, and in the assessment of chest wall and diaphragmatic involvement.
  • Perfusion MRI is the most promising technique for the assessment of the tumor microvasculature.
  • It has been shown that FDG-PET is useful for the differentiation of benign from malignant lesions, for staging and monitoring metabolic response to therapy against MPM, and that it has prognostic value.
  • An initial report on PET/CT imaging of MPM has shown increased accuracy of overall staging, improving the assessment of tumor resectability.

  • Presentation ranged from small erythematous/violaceous papules or nodules to large plaques with discoloration located on the chest wall (35), abdomen (2), shoulder, groin, flank, axilla, and lower leg (1 each).
  • One patient with an AVL had a recurrence at the same site, 3 patients developed additional new lesions, and 1 patient developed multiple small papules on the chest wall, which progressed from an AVL to angiosarcoma.
  • No adverse outcome has been observed so far in this more benign subset of cases, but longer-term follow-up is necessary.

  • [Title] Giant cell tumor of the anterior rib masquerading as a breast mass: a case report and review of current literature.
  • INTRODUCTION: Giant cell tumor (GCT) is an aggressive, but usually benign bone neoplasm most commonly arising in the metaphysis/epiphyses of long bones.
  • While they are categorized as benign tumors, they can be locally aggressive and clinically have metastatic potential.
  • The most common locations of this tumor include the distal femur, proximal tibia, and distal radius.
  • Radiologically, the initial impression included a deep-seated breast cancer with local chest wall invasion.
  • CONCLUSION: The histological features of bland mononuclear and multinucleated giant cells along with the lack of any additional mesenchymal elements led to the diagnosis of giant cell tumor.
  • Resection of tumor was performed.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: The biopsy of pulmonary neoplasms localized in close proximity of the thoracic wall and the histological examination of the specimens represent an important diagonstic tool in the work up of benign and malign pulmonary tumours.
  • The neoplasm reached the pleura in 41 cases.
  • Chest X-ray was performed within some hours to rule out pneumothorax.
  • RESULTS: The histological examination provided the diagnosis in 44 of 46 cases (95.6 %): lung cancer n = 29, other malign tumours n = 9; benign tumours n = 6).
  • Complications were observed in three patients: haemoptysis, cutaneous emphysema (without need for intervention), pneumothorax with consecutive chest tube placement (one case each).

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Low grade fibromyxoid sarcoma has been fully described histologically; however, the fine needle aspiration (FNA) cytologic findings are scantily defined, and the distinction from other benign and malignant soft tissue tumors can be difficult.
  • CASE: We examined FNA cytologic material from a slowly growing, large chest wall mass in a 28-year-old woman.
  • The excised tumor was well circumscribed, focally infiltrating the surrounding muscles.
  • The tumor cells were spindly, with fusiform, uniform nuclei.
  • The tumor cells were positive for vimentin, alpha-1-antitrypsin and lysozyme and negative for S-100, actin, desmin and CD34.
  • CONCLUSION: Although low grade fibromyxoid sarcoma is a rare neoplasm, it should be recognized and distinguished from other soft tissue tumors because of its low malignant potential.
  • The definitive FNA cytologic diagnosis can be challenging but is possible if the tumor is adequately sampled, with multiple passes from different areas.
