Genetic Alliance. consumer health - Osteomalacia.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • A 45-year-old man was admitted to our hospital because of bone pain and hypophosphatemia.
  • He had undergone surgery 2 years previously for a "benign unclassified mesenchymal tumor" in the skull, but there were no clinical symptoms related to osteomalacia.
  • The diagnosis of tumor-induced osteomalacia due to phosphaturic mesenchymal tumor mixed connective tissue variant (PMTMCT) was made by re-examining the pathologic specimens.
  • Clinicians and pathologists should be aware of the existence of PMTMCT especially nonphosphaturic or asymptomatic variants of this disorder.

  • [Title] December 2004: one-year-old girl with aggressive skull tumor.
  • December 2004. Twelve-month old girl presented with recurrent subcutaneous lesion in the left parietal region, one year after excision of a "benign" tumor.
  • An MRI demonstrated left temporo-parietal skull tumor infiltrating the soft tissue, surrounding craniotomy flap, and extending to the brain parenchyma.
  • Biopsy revealed biphasic neoplasm displaying nests of poorly differentiated neuroblastic cells positive for synaptophysin and pigmented cuboidal epithelioid cell positive for keratins, epithelial membrane antigen and MHB-45.
  • Interestingly, cell with the neuroblastic immunophenotype displayed 80% nuclear MIB-1 reactivity indicating that the aggressiveness of the neoplasm was confined mostly to this pattern of differentiation.

11. Narita T, Ishii N, Mayuzumi H, Kobayashi H, Ikeda J, Iwasaki Y: Occipitoparietal benign osteoblastoma: should entire lesion be resected when magnetic resonance images reveal wide abnormal signal intensity in surrounding bone marrow? Surg Neurol; 2005 Aug;64(2):180-3; discussion 184
MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - MRI Scans.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Occipitoparietal benign osteoblastoma: should entire lesion be resected when magnetic resonance images reveal wide abnormal signal intensity in surrounding bone marrow?
  • BACKGROUND: Benign osteoblastoma is an uncommon primary bone tumor that usually affects long bones and the vertebral column.
  • Despite the characteristically benign nomenclature of osteoblastoma, it sometimes recurs with the possibility of transforming into a malignant form after an incomplete resection.
  • However, it has not been clarified whether the adjacent bones should also be completely resected when magnetic resonance (MR) images reveal abnormal signal intensity in the bone marrow.
  • CASE DESCRIPTION: Presented in this case report is a 12-year-old boy with occipital tenderness associated with occipitoparietal bone tumor.
  • Neuroradiological studies demonstrated a solid tumor located in the occipital bone extending over the right parietal bone.
  • Magnetic resonance images further revealed abnormal signal intensity in the bone marrow of the entire occipital and bilateral parietal bones.
  • Macroscopically, the calvarial bone adjacent to the solid tumor appeared to be reddish, but it was not covering the entire area, contradicting the abnormal intensity found on the preoperative MR images.
  • Although MR images revealed abnormal intensity in the bone marrow of the surgical margin immediately after the operation, the intensity had been normalized by degrees and there was no evidence of recurrence during a follow-up period of 34 months.
  • This may suggest that bone marrow lesion showing abnormal intensity was edema rather than tumor invasion.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The authors conclude that total resection, including a bone marrow lesion, is not always necessary for benign osteoblastoma.
  • Macroscopic findings that show an abnormal color tone of the cortex could be a good indicator in revealing tumor activity invading bone marrow.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Parapharyngeal branchial cleft cyst extending to the skull base: a lateral transzygomatic-transtemporal approach to the parapharyngeal space.
  • Parapharyngeal second BCCs are an uncommon neoplasm and rarely extend to the skull base.
  • Temporal bone CT scan showed effusion in the left middle ear cavity.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed a cystic mass that was located at the left parapharyngeal space and eroded the skull table of the left temporal base.
  • We conclude the lateral transzygomatic-transtemporal approach allows surgeons direct access to the parapharyngeal space with satisfactory exposure for treating benign lesions of the parapharyngeal space.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Giant cell tumour and central giant cell reparative granuloma of the skull: do these represent ends of a spectrum? A case report and literature review.
  • Giant cell tumour (GCT) of bone is an uncommon primary bone neoplasm typically occurring at the epiphyses of long bones in young adults.
  • These tumours appear very rarely in the skull, with those few reported cases arising predominantly in the sphenoid and occasionally the temporal bones.
  • They demonstrate benign histological features, but are locally aggressive and surgical excision is the treatment of choice.
  • Investigators have noted that giant cell lesions in the skull bones may be unique and that GCT and CGCG may be part of a spectrum of a single disease process.
  • We present a case of a giant cell tumour of the temporal bone which illustrates and re-emphasises this concept and review the literature on these lesions.

  • [Title] Bone tumors at the cranio-cervical junction. Surgical management and results from a series of 41 cases.
  • BACKGROUND: Bone tumors located at the cranio-cervical junction (CCJ)are rare.
  • Tumoral involvement of the neighbouring structures including bone, nerves and vertebral artery and the dynamic aspects of the bone structures raise technical difficulties in the surgical approach.
  • METHODS: Forty-one patients presenting a bone tumor (26 benign and 15 malignant tumors), excluding chordomas, located at the CCJ (including lower third of the clivus, C1 and C2) were observed over 20 years from 1981 to 2001.
  • Imaging work-up included CT scanner with bone windows sequences and reconstruction in the coronal and sagittal plane; since 1984 most of the patients (N=35) underwent a MRI and angioMR scanning.
  • Vertebral angiography was rarely performed (N=9) and mostly when the diagnosis was doubtful.
  • In some cases the diagnosis was clear but in others, imaging studies showed destructive lesions suggesting a malignancy, which sometimes required a biopsy (N=4).
  • A complementary stabilization procedure was necessary in 18 cases using either bone grafting during the same procedure and through the same approach (N=5) or a craniocervical plating and bone grafting (N=13).
  • No recurrence in the group of benign tumors was seen during an average follow-up of 6 years (from 2 to 11 years).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Various types of bone tumors may be found at the CCJ.
  • Confusion between benign and malignant tumor or pseudo tumors must be avoided, sometimes requiring a biopsy.

  • Benign osteoblastoma is an unusual primary bone tumor.
  • Computed tomography revealed an expansile, lytic lesion in the left temporal bone.
  • T1- and T2-weighted magnetic resonance (MR) images demonstrated an isointense lesion in the temporal bone.
  • The histopathological findings proved that the lesion was a benign osteoblastoma.
  • To date, very few cases of the benign osteoblastoma arising in the calvarium have been reported in the literature.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Extracranial meningioma in the vicinity of the temporal bone: a difficult preoperative diagnosis.
  • BACKGROUND: Extracranial meningioma is a rare tumor, and most of the time only after histopathologic examination is diagnosis possible.
  • Histopathologic features were suggestive of meningothelial meningioma arising from the temporal bone with predominant extracranial extension.
  • CONCLUSION: Preoperative suspicion of a meningioma in this patient would have resulted in a more aggressive surgical approach as these lesions are relatively benign with indolent course.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Trigeminal schwannoma is a mostly benign tumor that can be cured by complete resection.
  • We analyzed 57 patients who underwent radical surgery, including 45 patients who underwent skull base surgery as their initial treatment, for removal of trigeminal schwannomas.
  • Since 1990, all such patients have been treated using three main types of middle fossa skull base approaches, which minimize the exposure of the brain: the anterior transpetrosal approach, subtemporal interdural approach (Dolenc), or a combination of these approaches.
  • Among the patients who underwent skull base surgery as their initial treatment, a complete resection was achieved in 93% (42/45 patients) of the cases.
  • No surgery-related mortalities occurred in this series, and the individual KPS scores were more than 90% among the patients who underwent skull base surgery.
  • Most of the trigeminal schwannomas could be removed totally and safely during a single operation after the introduction of skull base surgery.

  • In five cases, PET/CT uptakes were located only in lower limbs; each pathological uptake corresponded to benign lesions.
  • CONCLUSION: Lower limbs additional PET/CT acquisition seems to offer poor additional benefit with none unexpected lesion detected and routine skull base to upper thigh images might be sufficient for this subset of patients.

  • Intraosseous hemangiomas are classified as benign tumors of vascular nature.
  • They originate and expand inside bone structures.
  • In 6 cases, the neoplasm localized in the zygomatic region; in 3 cases, at the mandible level; in 1 patient, in the maxillary site; and in 1 patient, in the frontal bone.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • INTRODUCTION: Osteomas are a slow growing benign neoplasm of unknown etiology very rarely involving the temporal bone.
  • By bone composition they are divided into spongious (osteoma spongiosum) and compact osteomas (osteoma eburnum); by growth direction, into outward-growing (exosteoma) and in inward-growing (endosteoma); into unilateral and bilateral; by size, into small and gigantic; by surface structure, into smooth and multilobular; by number, into solitary and multiple; into symmetrical and asymmetrical.
  • Diagnosis is made based on case history, clinical examination, audiological processing and radiography (temporal bone CT scan), and confirmed by histopathological examination of the bone.
  • In terms of differential diagnosis, they must be distinguished from exostoses, bone tissue proliferation and osteoid osteomata.
  • The progress of the disease is prolonged, as they are slow growing, asymptomatic and benign tumours.
  • The clinical diagnosis was confirmed by CT scan of the temporal bone.
  • The removed bone change was about 12 mm high, 13-14 mm deep and about 8 mm wide.
  • The method of choice in diagnosis is temporal bone CT scan.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Maxillary ameloblastoma is a rare odontogenic neoplasm that is histologically benign and originates from epithelial cells present in bone tissue.
  • The risk, in particularly extensive forms, that the ameloblastoma will invade extra-maxillary structures such as the orbit, the pterygomaxillary fossa, the infratemporal fossa and the base of the skull, means that surgical treatment is difficult if it is to be oncologically radical while respecting function and aesthetics.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Nasal Cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Epithelial cells of cylindrical cell papilloma are oncocytes, which arise from the sinonasal respiratory epithelium, hence the term Oncocytic Schneiderian papilloma.This is a rare and benign neoplasm of the nose and paranasal sinuses and it should be considered in the work-up of all unilateral nasal polypoid lesions.
  • We report a case arisen from the nasoethmoidal space that extended to the anterior skull base through a bone dehiscence with intradural invasion and orbital space involvement.
