  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Huge mediastinal mature teratoma with combined resection of adjacent structures; report of a case].
  • We report a case of a 64-year-old woman with an anterior mediastinal tumor on a chest computed tomography (CT) before operation of uterine cancer.
  • After the radical surgery and a chemotherapy for uterine cancer, surgical resection of mediastinal tumor was performed in July 2005 because of gradually progression in tumor size.
  • Histologically, the tumor was diagnosed as a mature teratoma with the tissue of bone, digestive tract epithelium, bronchial epithelium and so on.
  • In benign teratoma, it is not rare to perforate to the adjacent structures.
  • So, we concluded if the mediastinal teratoma was suspected, long-term observation had the risk for adhesion and perforation to adjacent tissue, and in case of operation, we should keep in mind the possibility of combined resection of involved organs.

  • This report describes a 4-month-old male baby with a large anterior mediastinal teratoma presenting with severe respiratory distress.
  • The cystic teratoma was large enough to cause pectus carinatum.
  • Respiratory distress secondary to airway obstruction was markedly reduced by percutaneous aspiration of the cyst.
  • Surgical excision is indicated for a malignant or benign well-demarcated mass in any part of the mediastinum.
  • Surgical excision is the best means of diagnosing and treating a benign teratoma.
  • Percutaneous cyst aspiration not only improved ventilation but also facilitated easy excision of the cyst during surgical management.

  • [Title] Resection of a mediastinal mature teratoma diagnosed owing to sudden chest pain with elevated preoperative serum CA19-9.
  • Mediastinal teratomas are typically benign and asymptomatic, but they undergo sudden enlargement or rupture into neighboring organs in some patients owing to intratumoral hemorrhage, leading to serious complications.
  • We report the case of a mediastinal mature teratoma that was discovered because of the sudden onset of chest pain accompanied by elevated preoperative serum CA19-9 levels.
  • Chest radiography and computed tomography revealed a mediastinal tumor and a serum CA19-9 level that was elevated to 4377 U/ml.
  • The histological diagnosis was mature teratoma with peritumoral bleeding.

  • BACKGROUND: Papillary carcinoma can arise from ectopic thyroid tissue, but teratoma have not been described.
  • Differentiation into thyroid follicles does not occur in mediastinal teratomas.
  • CASE: A case of upper mediastinal immature teratoma occurred in an 18-day-old male newborn.
  • This finding is consistent with the origin of the teratoma in ectopic thyroid tissue, and it has not been previously described in the literature.
  • The patient was free of disease after 22 months, in accordance with the benign behavior of immature teratoma in infancy.
  • CONCLUSION: Ectopic thyroid tissue can undergo the same pathologic changes as the thyroid gland, including the rare occurrence of teratoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging of mediastinal tumors.
  • We describe the clinical, pathological, and imaging findings of mediastinal tumors with focus on thymic hyperplasia, thymic epithelial tumors, and germ cell tumors, malignant lymphoma, and various cystic masses.
  • Local invasion and pleural spread are characteristic of invasive thymoma and mediastinal lymphadenopathy and distant metastasis suggest thymic carcinomas.
  • Mature teratoma typically shows various computed tomography (CT) attenuation, and MR signal intensity depending on its contents and fat tissue and bone within the lesions are its characteristic findings.
  • In mediastinal lymphomas, a residual mass is common after treatment and MRI provides important information in distinguishing viable tumors from residual benign masses.
  • Some mediastinal cysts may reveal high attenuation similar to solid lesions on CT depending on their contents and MRI can be useful in the differentiation of cystic masses from solid lesions.

  • BACKGROUND: Mediastinal germ cell tumors presenting during childhood are extremely rare.
  • This paper reports on the clinical presentations, method(s) of treatment, complications, results and outcomes in a series of children with mediastinal germ cell tumors.
  • METHODS: A retrospective chart review of 7 children treated between 1971 and 2001 for mediastinal germ cell tumor was carried out.
  • Four patients had histologically benign tumors (mature teratoma).
  • Malignant tumors were observed in three patients (1 yolk sac tumor, 1 choriocarcinoma and 1 malignant teratoma).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Both this study and the literature review testify to the extreme rarity of mediastinal germ cell tumors in childhood.
  • Histologically benign tumors carry an excellent prognosis provided surgical excision is complete.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Challenges in the prenatal and post-natal diagnosis of mediastinal cystic hygroma: a case report.
  • INTRODUCTION: Cystic hygroma is a benign congenital neoplasm that mostly presents as a soft-tissue mass in the posterior triangle of the neck.
  • Pure mediastinal lesions are uncommon; the vast majority are asymptomatic and are an incidental finding in adulthood.
  • An echocardiogram and thoracic computed tomography scan confirmed a complex multiloculated cystic mediastinal mass.
  • The working diagnoses were of a mediastinal teratoma or congenital cystic adenomatous malformation.
  • CONCLUSION: Despite the fact that isolated intrathoracic cystic hygroma is a rare entity, it needs to be considered in the differential diagnosis of foetal and neonatal mediastinal masses, particularly for juxtadiaphragmatic lesions.
  • Post-natal diagnosis may also be misleading as many mediastinal cystic masses have similar appearances on imaging.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Most mediastinal abnormalities are initially suspected following chest radiography; the need for further investigation and the most appropriate imaging modality are largely dictated by the tentative diagnosis made on this examination.
  • Although routine chest radiography initiates the evaluation of mediastinal disorders, it is rarely diagnostic: notable exceptions are teeth or bones within a mass, which are diagnostic of a teratoma; air/fluid levels suggest an oesophageal origin, hernia, cyst, or abscess.
  • However, even sCT with contrast material is occasionally diagnostic (a confident diagnosis can be made of some lesions such as mature teratoma and mediastinal goiter) but is usually sufficient for preoperative evaluation before mediastinotomy or mediastinoscopy: it is instrumental in planning further diagnostic workup.
  • The role of fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) in mediastinal diseases continues to be evaluated: it has potential for differentiating between benign and malignant disease and is expected to play a more extensive role in the imaging of mediastinal neoplasms in the future.

  • Primary tumours in the anterior mediastinum account for half of all mediastinal masses.
  • They comprise various benign and malignant neoplasms, but a wide variety of nonneoplastic lesions (developmental, inflammatory) can present as a localised mass in this compartment.
  • The most common primary anterior mediastinal tumours are thymoma, teratoma and lymphoma; all other lesions are rare.
  • Understanding the pathology, clinical presentation, imaging and diagnosis of the major tumour types is instrumental in the safe and efficient work-up of a mediastinal mass.
  • Patients with primary mediastinal masses and cysts will usually undergo surgical resection; radiological and clinical features should prompt limited biopsy specimens followed by oncologic consultation, and chemotherapy or radiotherapy when appropriate.

  • Chest X-ray showed localised opacity in 3/8 while in other five suggested significant pleural collection with mediastinal shift.
  • Pre-operative CT scan with IV contrast in four children correctly identified underlying intra-thoracic tumour (two benign teratoma, two PNET).
  • In two cases CT with IV contrast was performed because chest X-ray suggested mediastinal loculated empyema while in other two high clinical index of suspicion prompted preoperative evaluation with CT scan with IV contrast.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVE: To report our experience of testicular and paratesticular tumours in children, as such tumours are rare, and historically yolk sac tumour has been described as the most common lesion in children, but recent reports suggest that benign testicular lesions might be more common.
  • Pathological analysis revealed teratoma in four patients, yolk sac tumour in two, epidermoid cysts in two, extrarenal nephroblastomatosis in one, and paratesticular rhabdomyosarcomas in two.
  • CT revealed extensive mediastinal adenopathy in one patient with rhabdomyosarcoma.
  • CONCLUSION: Although there were few patients, most of the lesions were benign tumours, with the most common histological subtype being teratoma.
  • As both malignant and paratesticular lesions occurred at a significant frequency, we would continue to advocate an initial radical inguinal approach at which time testis-sparing could be considered if the preoperative evaluation was favourable, and frozen-section analysis at the time of surgery confirms a benign lesion.

  • Indications of this method are benign thymic lesions [mature teratoma, thymic cyst and myasthenia gravis (MG)] and small thymoma (non-invasive Masaoka stage I-II, less than 5 cm in diameter and nontouching to the left brachiocephalic vein).
  • Fifty patients underwent VATS for 13 hemithymectomies (7 thymomas, 5 mature teratomas and 1 thymic cyst) and 37 extended thymectomies (25 nonthymomatous MGs and 12 thymomatous MGs).
  • New bipolar vessel sealing system (LigaSure V) is safer and more useful than metal clip and ultrasonic coagulator in VATS for thymic vein sealing, extraction of upper poles of thymus and incision of mediastinal pleura near phrenic nerve.
