MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Bladder Cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • INTRODUCTION: New modalities like Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) allow non-invasive examination of the internal structure of biological tissue in vivo.
  • Of all analyzed lesions 88 were benign (inflammation, edema, hyperplasia etc.) and 14 were malignant (CIS, Ta, T1, T2) as shown by final histo?pathology.
  • Furthermore all invasive tumors were staged correctly by OCT regarding tumor growth beyond the lamina propria.
  • Sensitivity of OCT for detecting the presence of a malignant lesion was 100% and sensitivity for detection of tumor growth beyond the lamina propria was 100% as well.
  • CONCLUSION: As a minimally invasive technique, OCT proved to have extremely high sensitivity for detection of malignant lesions as well as estimation of whether a tumor has invaded beyond the lamina propria.

  • [Transliterated title] Tumores de la conjuntiva.
  • Conjunctival tumors are one of the most frequent of the eye and adnexa.
  • They comprise a large variety of conditions, from benign lesions such as nevus or papilloma, to malignant lesions such as epidermoid carcinoma or melanoma which may threaten visual function and the life of the patient.
  • Early diagnosis is essential for preventing ocular and systemic spread and to preserve visual function.
  • In this paper we review the clinical characteristics of the most frequent conjunctival tumors, and we discuss tumor management.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Orbital giant cell angiofibroma: immuno-histochemistry and differential diagnosis.
  • COMMENTS: Giant cell angiofibroma is a benign spindle cell neoplasm characterized by multinucleated giant cells and pseudovascular spaces with a propensity to occur in the anterior soft tissues of the orbit of middle-aged adults.
  • It is part of a wide differential diagnosis of tumours that can be separated by various histologic and immunohistochemical features, which are discussed in the report.
  • It is important to consider it preoperatively because the vascular nature of this tumour may create problems with hemostasis during excision.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • They can occur in any part of the body including the orbital tissues.
  • Eleven of these were classified as benign, and the rest were malignant fibrous histiocytomas.
  • Benign fibrous histiocytomas have been reported in the orbit, eyelid, episclera and conjunctiva.
  • Malignant fibrous histiocytoma has been well described in the orbit, but rarely as a primary conjunctival tumour.
  • The rarity of the tumour makes its diagnosis and management a challenge.
  • Herein, the clinicopathological features of a case of malignant fibrous histiocytoma are presented and its management with wide excision and cryotherapy followed by ocular reconstruction with amniotic membrane transplant is discussed.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: A cutaneous angiosarcoma is a rare malignant tumour of vascular endothelial cells with aggressive clinical behaviour and poor prognosis.
  • Diagnosis is often delayed due to its variable and often benign clinical appearance.
  • CASE PRESENTATION: This case presents a 64-year-old man with a six-month-history of a recurrent diffuse and erythematous painless swelling below the left eye.
  • Neither, finally achieved negative margins on permanent sections, nor a following chemotherapy could prevent the recurrence of the disease after five months and the patient's dead 21 months after the first diagnosis.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Tears.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • METHODS: Medical records were reviewed for 133 patients and only those patients with 5 years or more of follow up were classified into the following 5 subgroups: those with intact excision (group IA, n = 46), those with surgically intact excision but areas of complete attenuation of the pseudocapsule at histologic analysis (group IB, n = 7), those with previous inadvertent incisional biopsy (group IIA, n = 9), those with breach of the pseudocapsule during attempted intact excision (group IIB, n = 5), and those undergoing definitive surgery because of tumor recurrence after previous incomplete excision (group III, n = 5).
  • RESULTS: Seventy-two patients were followed up longer than 5 years; there were no known tumor recurrences among 61 patients excluded with shorter follow-up.
  • Patients in groups IA and IB exhibited no tumor recurrences at 8.2 to 34.1 years of follow-up.
  • A benign recurrence occurred along the superior orbital fissure in 1 patient in group IIA 12(1/2) years after the initial surgery and was resected.
  • Long-term follow-up is, however, necessary when there has been tumor disruption, either inadvertently during previous biopsy or by capsular breach during definitive excision.

  • The frequency of IOP-elevation is mainly dependent on the biologic behaviour of the neoplasm (benign / malignant), its dimensions, localization, and its ability to provoke secondary changes like retinal detachment, hemorrhages, inflammation, and necroses.
  • The leading mechanisms are direct invasion of the chamber angle by tumour cells, rubeosis iridis, and forward displacement of the iris-lens-diaphragm with (lens induced) pupillary block.
  • As intraocular tumours may have pressure-lowering effects too, eyes bearing a tumour may also be hypotonic or normotonic inspite of a "glaucomatous chamber angle morphology".
  • The therapy of the tumour-induced glaucomas is hardly validated and generally follows the treatment of the other secondary glaucomas.
  • However, filtration procedures are contraindicated when a malignant tumour is diagnosed or suspected.
  • Because of the progress of tumour therapy with salvation of eyes which had to be enucleated in former times and prolongation of survival in some tumour entities (like Non Hodgkin's lymphoma and metastases) the significance of tumour-induced glaucomas will probably further increase in the future.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • METHODS: A 56-year-old black woman was referred for an asymptomatic fundus lesion in her left eye.
  • It had features typical of CHRPE, but there was a small elevated nodule within the flat component, and the diagnosis was adenoma of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) arising from CHRPE.
  • Thirteen years after the initial diagnosis, the patient returned with severe visual loss and no view of the fundus resulting from cataract and posterior synechia.
  • Ultrasonography revealed a total retinal detachment and a pedunculated tumor measuring 7.5 mm in thickness.
  • The eye was enucleated and studied histopathologically.
  • MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Clinical evaluation and correlation of clinical findings with histopathologic results of the enucleated eye.
  • RESULTS: Histopathologically, the mass was composed of a proliferation of atypical RPE cells with a marked infiltration of benign plasma cells.
  • Typical features of CHRPE were present at the base of the tumor.
  • The final diagnosis was adenocarcinoma arising from CHRPE.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Congenital hypertrophy of the retinal pigment epithelium, once considered to be a benign and stationary lesion, may spawn a malignant neoplasm.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Solitary fibrous tumor of the orbit: a case series.
  • PURPOSE: Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) occurs rarely in the orbit.
  • We present four such cases, representing one of the largest case series reported to date of this rare orbital tumor.
  • METHOD: The four patients ranged from ages 20 to 50, all of whom presented with lid swelling or bulging in the involved eye.
  • All four patients underwent CT scan to confirm the diagnosis of an orbital mass, which was then excised.
  • One of these cases demonstrated residual tumor on follow-up CT scan, which remained unchanged at one-year follow-up.
  • No evidence of residual tumor was found in the other three cases, despite one having malignant pathology.
  • CONCLUSION: SFT is a rare and generally benign tumor of the orbit.
  • Immunohistochemical testing with CD34 is necessary to confirm the diagnosis.
  • Although en bloc tumor resection is the definitive treatment, residual tumor may remain stable for some time.

  • [Title] MDM2-positive atypical lipomatous neoplasm/well-differentiated liposarcoma versus spindle cell lipoma of the orbit.
  • PURPOSE: To distinguish, in a 36-year-old man, an atypical lipomatous neoplasm/well-differentiated liposarcoma from a spindle cell lipoma in a recurrent orbital tumor.
  • RESULTS: MDM2 gene amplification was discovered in the CD34 tumor cells.
  • These findings established the diagnosis of a well-differentiated liposarcoma with lipoma-like and spindle cell features and ruled out a spindle cell lipoma.
  • CONCLUSION: Well-differentiated liposarcoma is a slow growing, infiltrative, and nonmetastasizing neoplasm that is microscopically and diagnostically challenging.
  • It can be reliably separated from a benign spindle cell or an atypical lipoma by using the markers MDM2 and Ki-67.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Fibrous histiocytoma, a primary mesenchymal tumor of the orbit, is known to arise from various ocular and adnexal tissues.
  • We are unable to find a published report of this tumor originating from the lacrimal gland.
  • We report a case of a benign fibrous histiocytoma of the lacrimal gland in an 11 year old girl who presented with painless, progressive eyelid swelling and mild proptosis.
  • The tumor was completely excised by anterolateral orbitotomy.
  • Light microscopy showed a spindle cell tumor arising from the lacrimal gland.
  • The tumor cells were arranged in a characteristic storiform (cartwheel) pattern with no pleomorphism or mitotic figures.
  • Immunohistochemically, the tumor cells were focally positive for CD-68 and negative for S-100, smooth muscle actin, vimentin, and CD-34, which ruled out neurofibroma, leiomyoma, solitary fibrous tumor, and hemangiopericytoma.
  • Based on these features, a diagnosis of benign fibrous histiocytoma was made.

  • [Title] [Management of lymphoid hyperplasia of the ocular adnexa].
  • [Transliterated title] Manejo de las hiperplasias linfoides orbitarias.
  • OBJECTIVE: Lymphoid Hyperplasia (LH) is a benign proliferative lymphocyte-rich process.
  • METHOD: We describe three patients with a lymphoproliferative process affecting the ocular anexae, in whom histologic, immuno-histochemical and molecular studies were performed.
  • PCR analysis allowed a definitive diagnosis to be made.
  • After PCR analysis, one of these latter two cases was definitively diagnosed as B-cell Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Today's molecular techniques allow us to make a definite diagnosis of lymphoma, because sometimes histology and immuno-histochemistry alone can result in a wrong diagnosis being made.
  • LH of the ocular adnexae may be the first stage of a much more serious disease, and a benign hyperplasia at this site must lead to suspicion of lymphoma, which can then be diagnosed or excluded by the improved diagnostic procedures.
  • Therefore, when we make a diagnosis of LH it is necessary to complete a full evaluation and institute a defined follow-up of the patient's clinical condition.

Genetic Alliance. consumer health - Syringocystadenoma papilliferum.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • PURPOSE: To describe 6 patients with syringocystadenoma papilliferum of the eyelid and to review the literature regarding this rare eyelid tumor.
  • METHODS: Clinicopathologic series of 6 cases, diagnosed at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary from 1990 to 2006.
  • Most cases had a preoperative diagnosis of basal cell carcinoma or cyst.
  • None of the lesions was associated with a malignant neoplasm.
  • Although syringocystadenoma papilliferum of the eyelid can be associated with other benign lesions, no malignant transformation or association with malignant neoplasms has been reported.
  • The evidence suggests that this tumor should be managed with conservative complete excision.

  • [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.
