  • [Title] Hepatocyte growth factor in Egyptian females with breast benign lumps and cancers.
  • OBJECTIVE: Estimation of the plasma level of HGF in females with benign breast lumps or breast carcinomas and correlating levels with important prognostic parameters.
  • SUBJECTS: Sixty eight adult premenopausal females were divided into control group of fifteen healthy volunteers and fifty-three patients subdivided into fifteen with benign breast lumps and thirty-eight with breast carcinomas.
  • METHODS: A thorough clinical examination, plain chest x-rays, ultrasonography of the abdomen and pelvis, pre- operative fine needle aspiration cytology, estimation of fasting serum glucose, urea, creatinine and uric acid levels, alanine aminotransferase activities, C-reactive protein, HGF level and histopathological examination of the breast masses were performed.
  • RESULTS: Significant increase in HGF levels was found in patients with benign breast lumps and in breast cancer patients when each was compared to controls and when cancer patients were compared to the benign breast lumps group.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Benign mixed epithelial stromal tumor of the renal pelvis with exophytic growth: case report.
  • BACKGROUND: Mixed epithelial and stromal tumor (MEST) is a distinctive benign composite neoplasm of the kidney predominantly seen in females mostly in the perimenopausal period.
  • A computed tomography scan of abdomen and pelvis showed a 9 x 7 cm uniformly solid mass with poor contrast enhancement situated in the inferomedial aspect of the left kidney.
  • Microscopically, the tumor was composed of large collagenized areas containing bundles of spindle cells and several 'microcysts' lined by cuboidal epithelium suggestive of a benign mixed epithelial stromal tumor.
  • CONCLUSION: MEST is a distinctive benign tumor of the kidney that should be distinguished from other renal neoplasms.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Exophytic benign mixed epithelial stromal tumour of the kidney: case report of a rare tumour entity.
  • BACKGROUND: Mixed epithelial and stromal tumour (MEST) represents a recently described benign composite neoplasm of the kidney, which predominantly affects perimenopausal females.
  • Most tumours are benign, although rare malignant cases have been observed.
  • A CT scan of the abdomen showed a 30-mm-in-diameter uniform mass adjacent to the pelvis of the left kidney.
  • Surgical exploration showed a tumour arising from the lower anterior hilus of the left kidney.
  • The tumour could be excised by preserving the kidney.
  • By intraoperative frozen section the tumour showed characteristic features of MEST with epithelial-covered cysts embedded in an "ovarian-like" stroma.
  • Additional immunohistochemistry investigations showed expression for hormone receptors by the stromal component of the tumour.
  • Commonly, the tumour arises from the renal parenchyma or pelvis.
  • The tumour is composed of an admixture of cystic and sometimes more solid areas.
  • CONCLUSION: MEST represents a distinctive benign tumour entity of the kidney, which affects perimenopausal woman.
  • The tumour should be distinguished from other cystic renal neoplasms.
  • By imaging studies it is difficult to distinguish between a benign or malignant nature of the tumour.

  • [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).

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Adrenal Gland Cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Ganglioneuroma is a benign, most differentiated tumor of neural crest origin.
  • These tumors though benign, can very rarely metastasize to regional lymphnodes or to distant sites.
  • Ultrasonography and CT scan of the abdomen showed a homogenous mass in the region of the right adrenal gland, extending between the inferior vena cava and the aorta.
  • A clinical and radiological diagnosis of an adrenal tumor was made.
  • Microscopically, the tumor histology was that of a ganglioneuroma (schwannian stroma-dominant) mature type.
  • The lymph node attached to the tumor showed metastasis, the metastatic foci having the same morphology as the primary tumor.
  • The right adrenal gland was free of tumor.
  • The case is illustrative due to its clinical presentation mimicking an adrenal incidentaloma, and a rare phenomenon of a benign tumor exhibiting completely differentiated lymph node metastasis.

Hazardous Substances Data Bank. Carbon dioxide .

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND/AIMS: Less invasive pancreatic head resection, such as duodenum-preserving pancreatic head resection (DPPHR) has been introduced for the treatment of pancreatoduodenal lesions, especially for benign conditions, for reducing surgical stress and maintaining exocrine and endocrine function of the residual pancreas in consideration of postoperative quality of life (QOL).
  • METHODOLOGY: We investigated the feasibility of a new technique employing three-dimensional (3D) virtual pancreatography using multi-detector CT (MDCT) with carbon dioxide (CO2) gas as a negative contrast agent for detection of intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN) of the pancreas requiring minimally invasive surgery.
  • RESULTS: Contrast-enhanced MDCT scan of the abdomen diagnosed 4- to 20-mm multilocular septated cysts in the head-uncinate process of the pancreas.
  • There was no residual pancreatic cyst and tumor after surgery.
  • The resected tumor was diagnosed as branch duct type intraductal papillary mucinous adenocarcinoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • To determine the utility of this approach, we analyzed the incidence of synchronous distant metastases (SDM) detected by CT or MRI of the head, chest, and abdomen in a large group of patients with sentinel lymph node (SLN) -positive melanoma.
  • To determine which prognostic factors were associated with SDM, associations between final staging outcomes and clinicopathologic variables, including SLN tumor burden, were analyzed.
  • In eight of these patients, further diagnostic studies determined that these abnormalities were benign.
  • Detection of SDM was associated with primary tumor thickness (P = .011), ulceration (P = .018), and SLN tumor burden (P = .018).

  • The radiologic features were of a hypervascular mass in the uncinate process of the head of the pancreas, and a preoperative diagnosis of a neuroendocrine tumor was favored.
  • No evidence of atypia was noted, and the overall impression was of a benign solitary fibrous tumor of the pancreas.
  • This is an unusual primary spindle cell neoplasm of the pancreas and should be considered in the differential diagnosis of all spindle cell lesions that occur in the pancreas.

  • [Title] High-resolution whole-body magnetic resonance image tumor staging with the use of parallel imaging versus dual-modality positron emission tomography-computed tomography: experience on a 32-channel system.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: In a prospective study, 41 patients withoncologic diseases underwent [F]-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose PET-CT for tumor staging and WB-MRI on a 32-channel-scanner with the use of PAT.
  • Coronal T1w and STIR sequences at 5 body levels, axial HASTE imaging of the lung, and contrast-enhanced T1w sequences of the liver, brain, and abdomen were performed.
  • RESULTS: Three primary and 4 recurrent tumors were detected; one recurrent tumor was missed with WB-MRI.
  • Sixty benign and 60 malignant lymph nodes were detected with a sensitivity of 98% and specificity of 83% for PET-CT and 80%/75% for WB-MRI, respectively.
  • One hundred ninety-one malignant and 77 benign distant lesions were detected with a sensitivity/specificity of 82% for PET-CT and 96%/82% for WB-MRI.
  • CONCLUSION: WB-MRI and PET-CT are reliable imaging modalities for tumor staging.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • We report the third case of a solid serous adenoma of the pancreas, a rare variant of tumor within the family of pancreatic serous cystic neoplasms.
  • This asymptomatic tumor presented in a 66-year-old man during imaging for another problem.
  • Computed tomography of the abdomen demonstrated a 3.5-cm hypervascular mass in the head of the pancreas.
  • Histological examination demonstrated a neoplasm identical to a serous cystadenoma-glycogen-rich cuboidal or polygonal cells with finely granulated eosinophilic or clear cytoplasm.
  • More often, the neoplasm contained solid areas and tubules but no microcysts.
  • The microscopic findings of a solid neoplasm of cuboidal cells rich in glycogen and the immunostaining listed associate this tumor with the previously 2 reported cases of solid serous adenoma.
  • All 3 reported cases thus far have proven to be benign lesions by pathological examination.
  • Because clinical follow-up is reported only in the present case, caution should be exercised in declaring the solid serous adenoma of the pancreas as a benign lesion.

  • Deeply seated fibromatosis or desmoid tumour (DT) is a rare entity characterized by benign proliferation of fibroblasts.
  • Although non-malignant, this tumour can be life-threatening due to its invasive property and high recurrence rate.
  • We report a unique case of a huge recurrent abdominal DT (36 cm in diameter, 25 kg in weight) that caused pressure necrosis and sloughing of the overlying anterior abdominal wall, and produced a large fungating mass protruding outside the abdomen.
  • Although preoperative neoadjuvant therapies were all ineffective, radical surgical removal of the tumour was successful.

  • OBJECTIVES: 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) is useful for differentiating benign from malignant lesions, evaluating tumor stage, monitoring the response to therapy and detecting tumor recurrence in a variety of malignancies.
  • We evaluated whether FDG-PET has a role in detecting extrahepatic metastasis in pretreatment tumor staging of HCC and the characteristics of patients with extrahepatic metastasis that benefit from FDG-PET.
  • METHODS: Eighty-seven patients with HCC underwent computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the abdomen and chest X-ray to evaluate pretreatment tumor staging.
  • Moreover, we investigated the clinical and tumor characteristics of patients with extrahepatic HCC metastasis.
  • Extrahepatic metastasis was significantly more frequent in patients with intrahepatic tumor >5 cm in size (p = 0.045).

  • CONTEXT: Epithelioid hemangioma or angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia is an uncommon benign vascular neoplasm that is usually located on the face or neck.
  • At physical examination, a palpable mass was noted in the lower left quadrant of the abdomen.
  • Neoplasia of the colon was clinically suspected and she underwent colonoscopy.
  • A biopsy collected during the examination suggested a diagnosis of neoplasia of vascular origin.
  • Despite the rarity of neoplasia of vascular origin, this possibility should be considered in the differential diagnosis for colorectal tumors.

  • [Title] [The role of 18F-FDG SPECT-CT in detecting recurrence and metastases in breast cancer patients with elevated tumor markers].
  • OBJECTIVE: To compare retrospectively the role of (18)F-FDG SPECT-CT and conventional imaging in the detection of recurrence and metastases in postoperative breast cancer patients with elevated level of tumor markers, and to evaluate the impact of (18)F-FDG SPECT-CT on the management of breast cancer patients.
  • METHODS: (18)F-FDG SPECT-CT was performed in 35 breast cancer patients with suspected recurrence based on elevated level of serum tumor markers.
  • Chest, abdomen and pelvic CT were performed in all patients and whole-body bone scan was performed in only 21 patients.
  • Of the 114 sites of increased FDG uptake, 93 were interpreted as malignant and 21 as benign.
  • CONCLUSION: In postoperative breast cancer patients with elevated level of tumor markers during the follow-up, (18)F-FDG SPECT-CT is more sensitive for detecting recurrence and metastases than conventional imaging.

  • Several growth factors, including basic fibroblast growth factor, transforming growth factors and vascular endothelial growth factor, play a role in tumour angiogenesis.
  • Essential to the initiation of a cellular response to GH, the presence of receptors for this hormone may predict the adaptation of tumour cells resulting from GH exposure.
  • A total of 64 benign and malignant vascular tumours were obtained from different human organ sites, including the chest wall, skin, axillary contents, duodenum, female breast, abdomen, stomach, colon, lymph node, bladder, body flank and neck regions.
  • To delineate tumour cell growth, immunohistochemical analysis of cycling nuclear protein and of proliferating cell nuclear antigen, using Ki-67 and PCNA polyclonal antibodies respectively, was used to demonstrate proliferative indexes.
  • The presence of GHR in endothelial cells of vascular neoplasm indicates that they are target cells and GH is of importance in the proliferation of vascular tumour angiogenesis.
  • The results support the hypothesis that GH is involved in the paracrine-autocrine mechanism, acting locally in regulating vascular tumour growth and will be useful for site-specific studies of the evolution of vascular cancers.
  • The use of anti-GHR antibodies to block tumour progression is an intriguing possibility.

  • Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is an uncommon benign neoplasm with locally aggressive behavior but malignant change is rare.
  • We report an unusual case of pelvic-abdominal inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor with malignant transformation in a 14-year-old boy presenting with abdominal pain and 9 kg body weight loss in one month.
  • Computed tomography revealed a huge pelvi-abdominal mass (30 cm), possibly originating from the pelvic extraperitoneal space, protruding into the abdomen leading to upward displacement of the bowel loops, downward displacement of the urinary bladder, massive central necrosis, a well-enhanced peripheral solid component with prominent peritumoral vascularity.
  • DNA sequencing and electronic microscopy further confirmed the primitive fibroblastic cell phenotype of the tumor and a final diagnosis of inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor with malignant transformation was established.
  • Rapid tumor recurrence was noted 20 d after radical tumor resection.

  • Paragangliomas are extra-adrenal tumors of the autonomic nervous system and may be found within the skull base, neck, chest, and abdomen.
  • When presenting within the abdominal cavity, they may arise as a primary retroperitoneal neoplasm and can mimic vascular malformations or other conditions related to specific retroperitoneal organs such as the pancreas, kidneys, or adrenals.
  • Retroperitoneal paragangliomas are mostly benign with good prognosis; however, they can present with abdominal pain, palpable mass, or hypertensive episodes.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Polypoid lesions of the gallbladder (PLG) have been a common finding on ultrasound examinations of the abdomen and are more prevalent since our use of equipment incorporating pulse shaping increased bandwidth, and enhanced phase use for image reconstruction began in 1996.
  • Ultrasound has been used extensively in the pre-operative management of these lesions, but modern ultrasound techniques are unable to differentiate between benign and malignant PLGs with any certainty.
  • We recommend that strong consideration be given to surgical resection of PLGs > or = 6 mm based on pre-operative US due to the significant risk of neoplasm.
