  • [Title] [Systemic AA amyloidosis induced by benign neoplasms].
  • [Transliterated title] Amiloidosis secundaria (AA) asociada a tumoraciones benignas.
  • Amyloidosis is a systemic disorder characterized by the extracellular tissue deposition of insoluble, toxic aggregates in bundles of beta-sheet fibrillar proteins.
  • The later (AA), is caused by deposition of fibrils composed of fragments of the acute phase reactant serum amyloid A (SAA) and complicates chronic diseases with ongoing or recurring inflammation, namely; rheumatoid arthritis (RA), juvenile chronic polyarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, familial periodic fever syndromes (Familial Mediterranean Fever), chronic infections and furthermore, some neoplasms (mainly renal cell carcinoma and Hodgkin's disease).
  • Despite its less frequent association, some benign neoplasms can subsequently complicate to AA amyloidosis, therefore, an early diagnose and successful treatment may lead indeed, to regression of the amyloid disease.
  • Herein, we present two cases of AA amyloidosis, both of them caused by 2 different benign neoplasms: 1.
  • Although other chronic inflammatory diseases complicate more frequently to AA amyloidosis, benign tumors have to be taken into account as a potential ethiological cause for secondary amyloidosis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Cytokeratin 15 expression in apocrine mixed tumors of the skin and other benign neoplasms with apocrine differentiation.
  • To clarify the features of apocrine mixed tumors (AMT) of the skin among benign neoplasms with apocrine differentiation in their relationship to follicular stem cells, we investigated the immunohistochemical expression of CK15 (LHK15 and C8/144B), which is a relatively specific marker of hair follicle stem cells in the bulge, in 35 cases of eight different benign neoplasms with presumed apocrine differentiation.
  • None of the other benign neoplasms with presumed apocrine differentiation showed CK15 expression.
  • AMT of the skin are unique among benign neoplasms with apocrine differentiation in their substantial and constant CK15 expression, suggesting that they derive from multipotent epithelial stem cells in the bulge.
  • The partially positive reaction for CK15 in syringocystadenomas papilliferum and spiradenoma/cylindroma may depend on the ability to express CK15 in stem cells with an apocrine fate or result from the follicular and apocrine nature of this neoplasm.

  • In the absence of p53 mutations, p53 inactivation is possible via complex formation with other proteins, such as Mdm2.
  • The pAkt protein is closely related to Mdm2, and has not been previously reported in salivary gland tumors.
  • Overexpression of Mdm2 and pAkt was present in all the cell lines and tumors studied, whereas the expression of p53 and p21 proteins was considered absent.
  • In conclusion, the signaling pathway in benign salivary gland neoplasm showed an important participation of Mdm2 overexpression protein in tumor formation, progression through inactivation of p53 action, or both, and of pAkt overexpression through increased translocation of Mdm2 protein to cellular nuclei.

  • : e20681 Background: Neoplastic brachial plexopathy (NBP) may occur with benign or malignant neoplasms.
  • 18 MRIs were performed in patients with a known cancer diagnosis, 1 was performed in a patient with a benign thymoma, 1 with a neurofibroma and the remaining 17 MRIs were ordered for other conditions.
  • Of the 20 MRIs performed (18 in patients with cancer, 2 in patients with a history of benign neoplasms), 6 (30%) confirmed a diagnosis of NBP.
  • 27.8% (5/18) of patients with a diagnosis of cancer had NBP (3 had metastatic breast cancer, 2 had non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
  • Median age at diagnosis was 67 years (range 35 to 86 years).
  • Radiotherapy was the treatment of choice for 5 patients with cancer diagnosis, followed by chemotherapy also for one patient.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In our series in the past 5 years, 9% (6/66) of total number of MRIs of brachial plexus performed were positive for a diagnosis of NBP.
  • NBP is devastating diagnosis.

  • [Title] Current management of cystic neoplasms of the pancreas.
  • The majority of these cysts represent benign neoplasms; however, a significant fraction of these are pre-malignant or malignant.
  • Because the majority of these neoplasms are benign, many reports have advocated a selective approach to surgical resection.
  • Here we review the literature that has contributed to the development of our approach to the management of these cystic neoplasms.
  • We provide an overview of the key features in diagnosis and in predicting malignancy.
  • Particular attention is given to the natural history and management of intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMN).

  • [Title] Benign disorders of the ovary.
  • Most ovarian disorders are benign, with the majority being functional ovarian cysts and benign neoplasms.
  • Imaging can often aid in diagnosis and risk assessment.
  • Benign ovarian disorders are frequently incidental findings, but they may cause symptoms from hormonal overproduction, mass effects, or torsion.
  • Knowledge of the cause, presentation, and natural history of these benign ovarian disorders helps providers counsel and treat patients appropriately.

  • [Title] Site-specific biology and pathology of gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors.
  • The gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs) are composed of cells with a neuroendocrine phenotype.
  • Well-differentiated tumors, well-differentiated carcinomas, poorly differentiated carcinomas, functioning tumors (with a hormonal syndrome), and nonfunctioning tumors are identified.
  • To predict their clinical behavior, these neuroendocrine tumors are classified on the basis of their clinicopathological features, including size, local invasion, angioinvasion, proliferative activity, histological differentiation, and metastases, into neoplasms with benign, uncertain, low-grade malignant and high-grade malignant behavior.
  • In addition, a tumor/nodes/metastases classification and a grading system are presented.

  • In this study, we compare the incidences of treatments for benign and malignant neoplasms in the two groups.
  • We linked all incident cases of surgery for benign and malignant breast neoplasms, from the Hospital Information System (1999-2003) to the Mammographic Screening Information System (1999-2001).
  • We calculated incidence, adjusted for age and standardized breast cancer mortality ratio in each area of residence, for benign and malignant neoplasms surgery in non-yet-contacted and contacted woman.
  • RESULTS: The target population in Lazio is 681,000; 116,000 women were contacted during the study period and 3252 malignant and 1566 benign neoplasms were surgically treated.
  • Annual incidence was, respectively, 2.0/1000 and 1.1/1000 for malignant and benign neoplasms in women not contacted, and, respectively, 2.9/1000 and 1.1/1000 in the contacted population.
  • Among the contacted group, annual incidence was 4.3/1000 and 1.5/1000 in compliant women, and 2.0/1000 and 0.9/1000 in non-compliant women.
  • About one-half of the surgeries for benign neoplasms in compliant women were treated against the recommendation of the screening programme.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The implementation of the screening programme did not increase the incidence of treatment for benign neoplasms, and detected 50% more malignant neoplasms.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • In 2004, the World Health Organization classified the renal oncocytomas as benign neoplasms of the kidney.
  • There are reports of subtypes of renal tumors, with similar histological morphology to oncocytoma, but with malignant potential, one of these tumors is the eosinophilic variant of chromophobe renal cell carcinoma.
  • It is important to characterize the histological features and the subtype of tumor, as this predicts biological behavior and cancer-specific survival rate.
  • Although some renal tumors may contain oncocytoma and eosinophilic variant of chromophobe renal cell carcinoma histology, caution should be exercised while diagnosing oncocytomas in needle biopsies as there may be unsampled area of chromophobe carcinoma which has a potential for metastatic spread representing a wolf in sheep's clothing.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Perineural invasion is an important mechanism for local spread in certain malignant cutaneous neoplasms and is associated with aggressive tumor growth, increased frequency of recurrence, and increased morbidity and mortality.
  • There exists, however, a limited number of cutaneous and noncutaneous benign neoplasms in addition to reactive lesions that either demonstrates perineural involvement or mimics it.
  • Given the association of the term "invasion" with malignant neoplasms, we use the term "perineural involvement" to describe neoplastic cells of any type infiltrating within nerves.
  • Despite the presence of perineural involvement in these benign lesions, there is no evidence of aggressive behavior compared with similar examples which do not demonstrate perineural involvement.
  • The aim of this article is to review cutaneous and noncutaneous benign neoplasms and reactive conditions that may demonstrate or mimic perineural involvement.
  • Recognition of the spectrum of benign processes that may resemble perineural involvement may help prevent diagnostic confusion, misdiagnosis, and overly aggressive treatment.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] A study of the utility of silver nucleolar organizer regions in categorization and prognosis of salivary gland tumors.
  • BACKGROUND: this study aimed at assessing the utility of silver nucleolar organizer region (AgNOR) staining in categorization and prognostication of salivary gland tumors.
  • METHODS: Twenty-seven malignant salivary gland tumors, 16 benign neoplasms, and 6 chronic sialadenitis lesions were stained using the technique described by Ploton et al. (1986).
  • RESULTS: The mean AgNOR counts for inflammatory lesions (1.67 +/- 0.19) and benign neoplasms (1.67 +/- 0.11), were less than for malignant neoplasms (3.59 +/- 0.55), P < .05.
  • There was no significant difference between the mean AgNOR counts of different specific histological types and grades of malignant neoplasms.
  • In addition, no correlation was found between mean AgNOR counts and the clinical course of malignant or benign salivary gland neoplasms.
  • CONCLUSION: Our results suggest that AgNOR staining is useful for distinguishing benign from malignant lesions, but is neither helpful for discriminating between histological types and grades of malignant neoplasms, nor prognostication of malignant salivary gland neoplasms.

  • Pituitary tumours account for 15% of intracranial neoplasms and are benign monoclonal neoplasms that may be clinically silent or secrete hormones, including prolactin, growth hormone, adrenocorticotrophic hormone or, rarely, thyroid-stimulating hormone or gonadotrophins.
  • We explored the role of disordered pituitary cell proliferation control in the pathogenesis of these invariably benign adenomas, studying the mechanisms underlying pituitary aneuploidy, premature proliferative arrest (senescence), markers of cell proliferation and tumorigenesis in single, double or triply mutant transgenic mice with mutations of Rb, Pttg and/or p21.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Solitary pancreatic involvement of tuberculosis is rare, especially in an immunocompetent individual, and it may be misdiagnosed as pancreatic cystic neoplasms.
  • Pancreatic cystic neoplasms are being identified in increasing numbers, probably because of the frequent use of radiology and advances in endoscopic techniques.
  • However, they are composed of a variety of neoplasms with a wide range of malignant potential, and it is often difficult to differentiate pancreatic tuberculosis mimicking cystic neoplasms from benign or malignant pancreatic cystic neoplasms.
  • Non-surgical diagnosis of pancreatic tuberculosis is inconclusive and continues to be a challenge in many cases.
  • If so, then laparotomy should be employed to establish the diagnosis.
  • Therefore, pancreatic tuberculosis should be kept in mind during the differential diagnosis of solitary cystic masses in the pancreas.

  • Although once reserved for the diagnosis of unresectable renal cell carcinoma, metastases, lymphoma, and infection, today percutaneous image-guided biopsy has an expanded role.
  • There is increasing awareness that a substantial proportion of small, solid renal masses are benign neoplasms.
  • Based largely on advances in cytological techniques, percutaneous biopsy can be now be used to diagnose benign neoplasms and thus prevent them from being treated unnecessarily.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • In non-teratomas, we assessed whether SI of the FFLs of benign masses and malignant neoplasms differed using the chi(2) test.
  • FFLs were observed in 66 of 556 ovarian masses (11.9%) on MR images, fat-fluid levels were observed in 11 of 80 teratomas, and FFLs attributed to hemorrhage in 54 of 476 non-teratomas and one twisted teratoma.
  • Non-neoplastic cystic lesions were most common non-teratomas to contain FFLs (27/197, 13.7%), followed by malignant neoplasms (23/177, 13.0%).
  • Benign neoplasms rarely contained FFLs (4/102, 3.9%); those that did were commonly associated with complications such as torsion or inflammation.
  • A hypointense supernatant layer together with a hyperintense dependent layer on T1-weighted images (T1WIs) was significantly more common in malignant neoplasms than in benign masses (P < 0.0001).
  • FFLs occurred in various ovarian masses ranging from benign to malignant neoplasms on MR images.
  • In non-teratomas, a hypointense supernatant layer and a hyperintense dependent layer on T1WIs may favor a diagnosis of malignancy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Neurothekeomas are rare, benign neoplasms, typically occurring in younger patients with a remarkable predilection for the female population.
  • The nomenclature and derivation of these tumors is controversial.
  • The rarity of this unusual skin tumor in daily routine histopathologic findings prompted the following report.
  • Multiple treatments with laser surgery were performed and yielded no persistent remission of the tumor.
  • Histopathologic examination revealed a non-encapsulated dermal tumor, composed of multiple, closely situated medium-sized nodules, separated by a myxoid collagenrich stroma, without epidermal alteration.
  • In summary, due to the histoarchitecture and immunoprofile of the tumor, a mixed-type cellular neurothekeoma was diagnosed.
  • The aim of this report is to help to avoid misdiagnoses of malignant mesenchymal tumors with serious consequences, including extensive surgical therapy or radiation.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Breast Cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVE: To study the distribution and efficacy of fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) in the diagnosis of breast lesions in pediatric and adolescent patients.
  • RESULTS: The morphologic spectrum seen in females was inflammatory lesions (4%), benign ductal cells (20%), ductal hyperplasia (0.6%), papillary lesions (0.7%), benign neoplasms (69%), suspicious cytology (0.3%) and cancer (0.3%).
  • Of the benign neoplasms, 98% (831 of 851) were fibroadenomas, with 12 cases of phyllodes (benign), 5 cases of lipoma and 3 cases of adenoma.
  • There were 3 cases of malignancy (2 adenocarcinoma and 1 non-Hodgkin's lymphoma).
  • Only 3% of the male breast aspirates provided a diagnostic challenge, while 89% of them showed benign ductal cells.
  • The aspirates are mostly benign and can be managed conservatively.
