  • Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, acute vestibular neuronitis, and Meniere's disease cause most cases of vertigo; however, family physicians must consider other causes including cerebrovascular disease, migraine, psychological disease, perilymphatic fistulas, multiple sclerosis, and intracranial neoplasms.
  • The history (i.e., timing and duration of symptoms, provoking factors, associated signs and symptoms) and physical examination (especially of the head and neck and neurologic systems, as well as special tests such as the Dix-Hallpike maneuver) provide important clues to the diagnosis.
  • Associated neurologic signs and symptoms, such as nystagmus that does not lessen when the patient focuses, point to central (and often more serious) causes of vertigo, which require further work-up with selected laboratory and radiologic studies such as magnetic resonance imaging.

  • [Title] Expression of p53 and TP53 mutational analysis in malignant neoplasms arising in preexisting spiradenoma, cylindroma, and spiradenocylindroma, sporadic or associated with Brooke-Spiegler syndrome.
  • We performed immunohistochemical assessment of p53 expression and TP53 mutational analysis of 15 malignant neoplasms arising from preexisting benign cylindroma, spiradenoma, and spiradenocylindroma, sporadic or associated with Brooke-Spiegler syndrome.
  • In one case only there were 2 p53 mutations, one being a c.673-1G>A splice-site mutation in the 3'-end of intron 6 (position--g.15289G>A, contig gb.AY838696.1) and the second being a c.743G>A (p.R248Q) mutation in exon 7 (position--15360G>A, contig gb.AY838696.1).
  • None of the 12 benign control group cases harbored a TP53 mutation, whereas all 12 demonstrated single nucleotide polymorphisms identical to those detected in the malignant tumor group.
  • In conclusion, we found a fairly high rate of p53 expression in malignant neoplasms arising from preexisting benign spiradenomas, cylindromas, and spiradenocylindromas.
  • Whereas immunostaining for p53 has been suggested as an adjunct tool to differentiate benign spiradenoma, cylindroma, and spiradenocylindroma from their malignant counterparts, its utility is limited by its heterogeneous pattern of expression, especially the sometimes lack of staining in clearly malignant areas and the occurrence of focal, weak positivity in the benign residua or in unequivocally benign neoplasms.

  • [Title] Benign tumors from the human nervous system express high levels of survivin and are resistant to spontaneous and radiation-induced apoptosis.
  • Here we have assessed the level of the survivin protein in some benign tumors of the nervous system: meningioma, schwannoma, low-grade ependymoma, pilocytic astrocytoma and pituitary adenoma.
  • In agreement, flow cytometrical analysis showed that both spontaneous and radiation-induced apoptosis levels are very low in these neoplasms.
  • Using host cell reactivation assay we have also shown that these tumor cells are proficient in the repair of gamma-ray-induced DNA damage.
  • These results suggest that survivin overexpression may be an early event in the stepwise tumoregenesis and hence could be responsible for the onset as well as the growth advantage during tumoregenic progression of malignant as well as benign neoplasms.

  • [Transliterated title] Röntgenrisiko: Abschätzung der strahleninduzierten Meningeome und anderer Spätschäden bei Exposition des Schädels.
  • A complete assessment of late effects of X-ray diagnostics should take into account that radiation sensitivity varies considerably for the different ages at exposure and, furthermore, that not only malignant diseases but also benign neoplasms are induced which also may lead to severe detriment of the patient.
  • Risk estimates are derived for paediatric head CTs as well as for brain tumours in adults.
  • Dose-effect relationships for tumours of the brain, skin, thyroid, and other sites of the head region, leukaemia, and cataracts are taken from the literature.
  • 1,000 annual paediatric CT investigations of the skull will lead to about 3 excess neoplasms in the head region, i.e., the probability of an induced late effect must be suspected in the range of some thousandths.
  • The radiation-induced occurrence of meningiomas and other brain tumours most probably contributes to the continuously increasing incidence of these diseases which is observed in several industrial nations, as well as the exposure of the bone marrow by CT to the increase of childhood leukaemia.

  • BACKGROUND: Mesenchymal neoplasia comprises a heterogeneous group of tumors with over 200 benign neoplasms and 100 sarcomas.
  • Messenger RNA (mRNA) from four general tumor classes was competitively hybridized against a human dermal fibroblast cell line comparator and the resulting gene expression profiles processed by ANOVA and linear discriminate analysis.
  • RESULTS: The tissue classification involved 18 patients with malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors, giant cell containing tumors, benign spindle cell lesions, or Ewing's family of tumors.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Linear discriminate analysis of cDNA gene expression profiles partitioned mesenchymal tumor classes, even when constrained by limited sample sizes.

  • [Title] "Primary" benign retroperitoneal and intraspinal dumbbell-shaped cystic teratoma: case report.
  • SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Primary benign cystic teratomas of the retroperitoneum are rare.
  • In this report, by presenting a case of cystic teratoma with such extension, the origin of the tumor, and the value of computerized tomography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the preoperative diagnosis and surgical approach for the extended lesion are discussed.
  • Preoperative computerized tomography and MRI of the thoracic and lumbar spines showed a dumbbell-shaped tumor, with the solid part residing in the right retroperitoneum near the neuroforamen of the L2-L3 spines and the cystic part extending into the spinal canal.
  • By performing right L2-L4 hemilaminectomies with a mini retroperitoneal approach, the tumor was removed en bloc in one stage.
  • RESULTS: Diagnosis of cystic teratoma was confirmed by pathologic examination.
  • The patient recovered well without any neurologic deficits, and recurrence of tumor has not been found for 9 years postoperatively.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Total surgical removal of tumor is an ideal treatment for retroperitoneal and intraspinal dumbbell-shaped cystic teratoma.
  • MRI displays the precise location, morphology, and adjacent structures of the tumor, which provide for better preoperative planning and more complete removal of tumor with less neurologic damage.

  • [Title] Spinal cord compression caused by a brown tumor at the cervicothoracic junction.
  • BACKGROUND CONTEXT: Brown tumors are classic benign skeletal manifestations of hyperparathyroidism, but the spine involvement is very rare.
  • PURPOSE: To describe our management in a patient with brown tumor and also to review the previous published cases.
  • METHODS: A case of a brown tumor in the T1 vertebra of a 72-year-old male patient is described.
  • He had a previous diagnosis of secondary hyperthyroidism caused by renal failure.
  • First, posterior transpedicular open biopsy was performed for the diagnosis and also for the decompression of the root causing brachialgia.
  • After the diagnosis of a brown tumor, the patient was reoperated through anterior approach for total tumor removal and reconstruction of the spine.
  • CONCLUSION: The determination of a spinal tumor in a patient with renal failure and hyperparathyroidism should bring to mind the probability of a brown tumor.
  • Although it is of a benign nature, it can cause severe neurologic deficit because of spinal compression.
  • The recommended treatment modality is surgical resection of the tumor, spinal reconstruction, and aggressive treatment of hyperparathyroidism both with parathyroidectomy and medically.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVES: To present our early experience with the transoral approach to the superomedial parapharyngeal space (PPS) and describe our technique for removal of these neoplasms.
  • METHODS: Eight patients with various neoplasms of the superomedial PPS were retrospectively reviewed for type of neoplasm, size, success with the transoral approach, need for conversion to another approach, length of hospitalization, and complications.
  • RESULTS: The transoral approach described herein safely allowed for en bloc resection of benign neoplasms with intraoperative control and exposure of the internal carotid artery.
  • Mean tumor size was 3.3 cm (range, 1.5 to 7 cm).
  • This technique is indicated for neoplasms with benign appearance on preoperative imaging or fine needle aspiration.

  • A wide variety of lesions and not necessarily a malignant tumour can cause maxillary swelling.
  • Non-specificity of clinical and radiological features of these maxillary lesions makes their diagnosis difficult.
  • The awareness of the spectrum of pathology related to maxillary swelling is essential for correct diagnosis and treatment.
  • Maxillary swelling was found to be caused by malignant tumours in 54.2%, benign neoplasms in 22.9% and non-neoplastic lesions in 22.9%.
  • Overall squamous cell carcinoma (22.9%) was the commonest lesion, tumour of vascular origin was the commonest benign neoplasm and odontogenic cyst was the commonest among the non-neoplastic lesions.

  • [Title] Diagnosis and management of neoplastic lesions of the submandibular triangle.
  • Review of submandibular triangle neoplasms (benign and malignant) treated at a tertiary referral centre in the United Kingdom (1986-2004).
  • Forty nine benign and 58 malignant neoplasms of the submandibular triangle were reviewed.
  • Definitive diagnosis was by excision and pathological examination.
  • Pleomorphic adenoma (n=37) were the most common benign neoplasms.
  • The most frequent primary lesions were malignant non-Hodgkin lymphoma (n=22), adenoid cystic carcinoma (n=9) and mucoepidermoid carcinoma (n=9).
  • The mainstay treatment for both benign and malignant lesions was surgical either by extracapsular excision of the gland/lesion or selective levels I, IIa and III neck dissection.
  • Submandibular triangle neoplasms are rare and pose many diagnostic and therapeutic challenges.
  • There is a relatively high incidence of malignant neoplasms in this region (54%).
  • Benign tumours manifest a mild course of disease and have an excellent prognosis following adequate excision.
  • Malignant tumours have a poor symptomatology that can result in late (often post-operative) diagnosis.
  • The adequacy of primary surgery is crucial and would support the approach of a more radical excision primarily with a selective levels I, IIa and III neck dissection; ensuring a definitive operation for benign lesions, avoiding the risks of tumour spillage associated with a more limited excision; and removing the primary echelon of lymph nodes at risk of metastasis if the pathology in fact turns out to be malignant; without a significantly higher morbidity in comparison with an extracapsular gland/lesion excision.

  • Juxtaglomerular-cell tumor (JGCT), first described in 1967, is a rare tumor of the kidney that derives from specialized smooth-muscle cells of the wall of the glomerular afferent arteriole.
  • JGCTs are considered benign, but the clinical follow-up has been short in most reported cases.
  • Only one metastatic case has been reported to date, raising the question of tumors of uncertain malignant potential rather than clearly benign neoplasms.
  • Thus, JGCT might be better considered as a tumor of uncertain malignant potential consequently requiring a prolonged follow-up.

  • [Title] Differentiation of benign and malignant parotid tumors using deconvolution-based perfusion CT imaging: feasibility of the method and initial results.
  • AIM: We evaluated the feasibility of perfusion CT (CTP) of the parotid gland and attempted to differentiate benign from malignant tumors.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: CTP was performed in 17 patients with benign tumors and 10 patients with malignant parotid tumors.
  • Regions of interest were placed through the tumor site and the contralateral healthy parotid tissue.
  • High Pearson correlation coefficients comparing the two readers' visually measured abnormalities were observed (r=0.79-0.86, P=0.001) for all perfusion maps, The MTT and PS values between malignant and benign tumors were not significantly different.
  • The BF and BV values were statistically significant different between the benign and malignant tumors (0.00<P<0.02).
  • Only the BV ratio criterion between malignant and benign neoplasms was statistically significant (P<0.004).
  • CONCLUSIONS: CTP of the parotid gland is feasible and may differentiate malignant from non-malignant lesions by means of absolute BF, BV and BV ratio values.

  • [Title] Pancreas-sparing distal duodenectomy for infrapapillary neoplasms.
  • INTRODUCTION: For neoplasms that arise in the third and fourth parts of the duodenum (D(3), D(4)), a duodenectomy that preserves the pancreas can provide adequate tumour clearance while avoiding the additional dissection and risk of the common alternative, pancreatoduodenectomy.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Pancreas-sparing distal duodenectomy (PSDD) was performed in 14 patients with infrapapillary duodenal neoplasms between 1991-2002, and the clinical outcome is reviewed.
  • There were 11 malignant neoplasms (adenocarcinoma 5, stromal tumour 4, recurrent seminoma 1, plasmacytoma 1), 2 benign neoplasms (villous adenoma, lipoma) and 1 patient with steroid-induced ulceration.
  • In addition to D(3) and D(4), resection included the distal part of D(2) in 5 patients, while 4 required concomitant partial colectomy.
  • Median operation time was 240 min and median blood loss 1197 ml, being greater for malignant than benign lesions (1500 ml versus 700 ml).
  • At a median follow-up of 47 months, three patients had died of recurrent disease while the other 10 were alive and well with no upper gastrointestinal symptoms.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Provided there is a minimum 1-cm clearance at the papilla, PSDD is a useful alternative to formal pancreatoduodenectomy in patients with unusual neoplasms arising from the third and fourth parts of the duodenum.
  • Although a major undertaking in its own right, it avoids the extra time of a pancreatic resection and the extra risk of a pancreatic anastomosis.

  • [Title] Oral malignant melanomas and other head and neck neoplasms in Danish dogs--data from the Danish Veterinary Cancer Registry.
  • Neoplasms originating in the head and neck region are a heterogeneous group.
  • Also the proportions of benign and malignant neoplasms of different locations in dogs were compared using Fisher's exact test.
  • RESULTS: A total of 1768 cases of neoplasias (679 malignant, 826 benign, 263 unknown) were submitted.
  • Of all neoplasias HNC accounted for 7.2% (n = 128).
  • Of these, 64 (50%) were malignant and 44 (34%) benign.
  • The most common types of malignant neoplasia were SCC (18; 28% of malignant), OMM (13; 20% of malignant), soft tissue sarcoma (11; 17% of malignant) and adenocarcinoma (5; 11% of malignant).
  • The most common types of benign neoplasms were adenoma (7; 16% of benign), polyps (6; 14% of benign) and fibroma (5; 11% of benign).
  • CONCLUSIONS: In the current study, the proportion of neoplasia in the head and neck region in dogs in Denmark was similar to other canine studies and significantly more common than in humans with a large proportion of malignancies.

  • BACKGROUND: Intraosseous cavernous hemangiomas of the bone are uncommon tumors, accounting for 0.7% to 1% of all bone neoplasms.
  • Calvarial cavernous hemangioma is rare, comprising about 0.2% of all benign neoplasms of the skull.
  • CONCLUSION: Skull cavernous hemangiomas are rare benign tumors.
  • The preferred treatment is complete tumor removal with normal bony margins.
  • Consequently, the diagnosis is most often made during surgical resection.

  • [Title] Ten-year follow-up of a case series of primary epithelial neoplasms of the lacrimal gland: clinical features, surgical treatment and histopathological findings.
  • PURPOSE: To describe and analyze the features of a cases series of patients with primary epithelial neoplasms of the lacrimal gland, its surgical treatment, and histopathological findings.
  • METHODS: Retrospective evaluation of files from patients with primary epithelial neoplasms of the lacrimal gland in the period from 1997 to 2007.
  • RESULTS: During the study period, there were 12 patients, 5 (41.7%) with benign tumors, all pleomorphic adenomas (benign mixed tumor) and 7 (58.3%) with malignant neoplasms, thus distributed: four cases of adenoid cystic carcinoma, two of mucoepidermoid carcinoma and one carcinoma expleomorphic adenoma.
  • Globally, patients mean age was 54.1 years-old (ranging from 14 to 70 years-old), with mean age of 52.4 years-old (ranging from 14 to 65 years-old) for benign neoplasms, and 55.3 years-old for malignant neoplasms (ranging from 26 to 70 years-old).
  • CONCLUSIONS: The most frequent primary epithelial neoplasms of the lacrimal gland were pleomorphic adenoma and adenoid cystic carcinoma during the study period.
  • Malignant tumors were more frequent than benign tumors.
  • The histopathological diagnosis and the disease initial stage can play a significant role in patient's survival.

  • [Title] [Imageology features and transoral approach of benign parapharyngeal space tumors].
  • OBJECTIVE: To analyze the imageology features of benign parapharyngeal space (PPS) tumors, and also to summarize our experience in removing PPS benign tumors through transoral approach.
  • METHOD: A retrospective review was conducted to 48 patients with benign tumors in PPS during a 10-year period.
  • The transoral approach described herein safely allowed for en bloc resection of most benign neoplasms.
  • CONCLUSION: CT or MRI scan can distinguish prestyloid from poststyloid lesions, and to assess the extension of the tumor as well as its relationship with adjacent structures.
  • The transoral approach safely provides access to some benign PPS tumors with a low rate of complications and recurrence as well as traditional transcervical approaches.

  • [Title] Increased expression of prostate-specific G-protein-coupled receptor in human prostate intraepithelial neoplasia and prostate cancers.
  • The G-protein-coupled receptors and signal transduction pathways represent important specific targets for a variety of human diseases, ranging from the control of blood pressure, allergic response, hormonal disorders and neurologic diseases to tumorigenesis.
  • We significantly extended previous studies and demonstrated that PSGR is specifically expressed in human prostate tissues, not in any other normal and tumor samples tested.
  • Compared to normal and benign prostatic hyperplasia tissues, the expression of PSGR increased significantly in human prostate intraepithelial neoplasia (PIN) and prostate tumors (approximately 10-fold), especially in early prostate tumors, suggesting PSGR may play an important role in early prostate cancer development and progression.
  • The sensitivity and specificity estimates for PSGR expression were calculated as the area under the receiver-operating characteristics curve (0.902), indicating high-level sensitivity and specificity for discriminating benign prostate tissues from malignant prostate tissues.
  • Our data suggest that overexpression of PSGR in human PIN and prostate cancers have the potential for early prostate cancer detection and diagnosis.

  • OBJECTIVE: Resection of the internal jugular vein can be necessary in cases of radical neck dissection or even in cases involving benign neoplasms such as glomus tumors.
  • According to the triad described by Virchow (ie, stasis of blood flow, damage to the endothelium, and changes in hemostasis), the development of a thrombosis in the venous vessels superior to the resected internal jugular vein seems to be possible.
  • Sixteen patients had malignant tumors, and 1 patient had a glomus tumor.
  • After unilateral resection of the internal jugular vein, the venous blood leaves the brain mainly via the venous network of the contralateral side of the neck.
  • After unilateral radical neck dissection, the venous blood leaves the brain mainly via the venous system of the other side of the neck and the ipsilateral collateral veins.

  • Dermatofibroma or cutaneous fibrous histiocytoma is a common benign skin lesion with multiple, distinct histologic variants, including cellular, aneurismal, epithelioid, atypical, lipidized "ankle-type," palisading, and cholesterotic.
  • Although dermatofibromas are considered benign neoplasms, certain variants including cellular and aneurismal ones have shown to have a notable tendency to locally recur after excision.
  • The finding of signet-ring cells in a skin neoplasm always raises the suspicion of metastatic adenocarcinoma, although a number of reports have shown their occurrence in primitive cutaneous neoplasms as well.
  • We present, for the first time, a new, distinctive variant of dermatofibroma, so-called signet-ring cell dermatofibroma, in a 16-year-old man with a slowly growing skin tumor on the lateral side of his right leg.
  • Histochemical and immunohistochemical stainings confirmed the diagnosis of dermatofibroma.

  • Osteochondroma is the most common benign bone tumor, accounting for more than one-third of all benign bone tumors.
  • Thus, surgical excision is not routinely recommended unless the tumor causes clinical symptoms or cosmetic distress.
  • We assessed the solitary pelvic osteochondroma of a 33-year-old man mimicking spinal disease.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging showed an irregular, exophytic outgrowing calcified mass with cartilage cap and exostotic mass compressed to the proximal part of the right L5 nerve root lateral to the nerve root foramen.
  • The L5 nerve root was focally compressed and thinned.En bloc excision, the treatment of choice of symptomatic osteochondroma, was performed.
  • The patient had complete resolution of symptoms postoperatively, and other neurologic symptoms may be expected to improve over time.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumors (DNETs) are benign glioneuronal tumors that occur in children.
  • These tumors are characterized by seizures, lack of neurologic deficits, and a seemingly benign course after resection.
  • METHODS: A retrospective review was conducted of data relating to 11 children diagnosed with DNETs between January 1988 and December 2007 at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
  • RESULTS: The patient cohort included 8 boys and 3 girls (median age at diagnosis, 10 years); all patients presented with seizures: 4 complex partial, 3 generalized tonic-clonic, 2 absence, 1 partial simple, and 1 not classified.

  • Malignant round cell tumors (76.6%), chiefly embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma (51%), benign spindle cell neoplasms, and infectious lesions (tuberculosis, fungal infections), were seen.
  • Pediatric orbital masses range from completely treatable infectious lesions, surgically resectable benign neoplasms to aggressive malignancies requiring chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
  • Pathologists play a key role in distinguishing these on small biopsy material and expediating accurate treatment thus saving the vision or life of a patient.

  • Consequently, we reasoned that the initiating genetic lesions seen in some of the Phakomatoses, disorders associated with predominantly benign neoplasms, may somehow fundamentally limit malignant behavior (invasion and metastasis).
  • We argue that inactivating mutations in these genes (labeled RPPMs: repressors of proliferation/promoters of motility) results in predominantly benign growths because, while such mutations promote unconstrained proliferation, they limit the ability of neoplastic cells to migrate and invade.
  • Such pleiotropy may represent an evolutionarily conserved strategy designed to limit the spread of nascent neoplasias.
  • When not inactivated, we show how selective pressures in the tumor microenvironment would suppress mutation in these genes during progression and how wild-type RPPMs may function synergistically with oncogenes to promote malignant behavior.
  • Finally, we explore how this model may help to explain oncogene addiction, tumor dormancy, and spontaneous regression.

  • Colon cancers arise from benign neoplasms and evolve into adenocarcinomas through a stepwise histological progression sequence, proceeding from either adenomas or hyperplastic polyps/serrated adenomas.
  • CGI DNA methylation is an epigenetic mechanism that represses gene transcription in normal cellular processes, but it becomes excessive and aberrant in many neoplasms.
  • These hypermethylated genes are not only probable pathogenic events affecting colon-cancer formation, but also neoplasm-specific molecular events that may be useful as molecular markers for colon tumours.
  • Furthermore, aberrant DNA methylation of tumour-suppressor genes may occur secondary to a genetic predisposition or to a field-cancerization effect in the colon and may be useful as molecular markers for the risk of developing colon cancer.

  • [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 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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVES: This study examined the effects of posterior fossa tumor surgery and concomitant irradiation and/or chemotherapy on the long-term recovery of balance function in children and adolescent patients.
  • SUBJECTS AND METHODS: 22 patients, treated during childhood for a benign (n = 14) or malignant cerebellar tumor (n = 8), were examined in chronic state (mean latency between surgery and testing: 7.7 years, range 3 - 17 years).
  • RESULTS: Comparing the balance function of (i) children with or without affected cerebellar nuclei and (ii) children with and without adjuvant chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy revealed that damage to the cerebellar nuclei had more impact on neurological impairment than concomitant tumor therapy.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The study results indicate that the sparing of the deep cerebellar nuclei had the greatest impact on the recovery of balance function in pediatric patients treated for both a benign or malignant cerebellar tumor.

  • [Title] Neurologic manifestations of von Hippel-Lindau disease.
  • von Hippel-Lindau disease (VHL) is an autosomal-dominant neoplasia syndrome that is the result of a germline mutation of the VHL tumor suppressor gene on the short arm of chromosome 3.
  • Patients with VHL are predisposed to develop lesions of the central nervous system and viscera.
  • Central nervous system lesions include hemangioblastomas (the most common tumor in VHL) and endolymphatic sac tumors (ELSTs).
  • Despite their benign pathology, hemangioblastomas and ELSTs are a frequent cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with VHL.
  • Recent molecular biologic investigations into these VHL-associated central nervous system lesions provide new insight into their origin and development.
  • Because of the dissimilar pathobiology and clinical course between hemangioblastomas and ELSTs, the optimal management strategies for these neurologic manifestations of VHL are very different.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • In all, 442 patients had non-neoplastic pathology, with 60.4% presenting acutely.
  • The most common non-neoplastic pathologies were hydatid of Morgagni (42.6%) and "vanishing testis" (14.3%).
  • A total of 32 patients had neoplasms.
  • Of 27 patients with testicular neoplasms, 55.6% were malignant (29.6% primary and 26% secondary), the principal primary malignancy was yolk sac tumor; the most common benign neoplasms were epidermoid cysts and teratomas.
  • Five patients had paratesticular neoplasms, with rhabdomyosarcoma in 80%.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The variety of scrotal and testicular pathology in children is considerable, with acute pathologic conditions comprising the bulk in the older (7-15 years) children, whereas impalpable testes and neoplasms comprise most of the lesions in infants.
  • Benign testicular neoplasms occur more frequently than primary malignancies.

  • [Title] Morphologic diversity of malignant neoplasms arising in preexisting spiradenoma, cylindroma, and spiradenocylindroma based on the study of 24 cases, sporadic or occurring in the setting of Brooke-Spiegler syndrome.
  • The authors present a series of 24 malignant neoplasms arising in preexisting benign spiradenoma (20), cylindroma (2), and spiradenocylindroma (2).
  • Nineteen patients (12 females, 7 males; age range, 41 to 92 y) had a solitary neoplasm (size range, 2.2 to 17.5 cm; median 4 cm), whereas the remaining 5 (4 females, 1 male; age range, 66 to 72 y) manifested clinical features of Brooke-Spiegler syndrome (BSS), an autosomal dominantly inherited disease characterized by widespread, small, benign neoplasms on which background larger malignant lesions appeared.
  • Microscopically, all cases showed the residuum of a preexisting benign neoplasm.
  • 3) invasive adenocarcinoma, not otherwise specified (IAC-NOS); and 4) sarcomatoid (metaplastic) carcinoma.
  • In 1 case of IAC-NOS, an in situ adenocarcinoma was also found, presumed to have evolved from an adjacent adenomatous and atypical adenomatous component.
  • Cases harboring a sarcomatoid carcinoma featured a malignant epithelial component composed of varying combinations of BCAC-HG, BCAC-LG, IAC-NOS, or squamous cell carcinoma, whereas the sarcomatoid component appeared as either a pleomorphic or spindle-cell sarcoma.
  • Of the 21 patients with available follow-up (range, 3 mo-15 y; average 4.8 y; median 3.5 y), 10 were without evidence of disease, 1 was alive with metastatic disease, 1 was alive with BSS, 3 developed local recurrences, 4 had died of disease, and 2 were dead of other causes.
  • The histologic pattern of the malignant neoplasm correlated to some extent with the clinical course.
  • BCAC-LG neoplasms showed a less aggressive course, with local recurrences but no distant metastases, whereas the BCAC-HG neoplasms typically followed a highly aggressive course resulting in the death 3 of 6 patients with BCAC-HG.
  • Given the morphologic diversity and complexity of the neoplasms in question, we propose using a more specific terminology with the precise description of the neoplasm components, rather than generic and less informative terms such as "spiradenocarcinoma" or "carcinoma ex cylindroma. "

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The histologic differentiation between benign and malignant tumors is difficult, the latter diagnosed by the presence of metastatic disease or recurrence.
  • A senior endocrine pathologist, blinded to clinical outcome, reviewed the histopathologic characteristics of all cases using the PASS system.
  • This pheochromocytoma scoring system is based on the presence of 12 different histologic parameters, including tumor necrosis, mitotic rate, tumor cell spindling, and the presence of large cell nests.
  • In addition, we constructed a tissue microarray of all 5 malignant tumors and 41 of the benign tumors.
  • RESULTS: Forty-three patients had a benign clinical course while 5 patients harbored a clinically malignant pheochromocytoma.
  • Tumor necrosis (focal or confluent) was a particularly powerful indicator of malignancy present in 4 of 5 patients (80%) with malignant tumors, but only in 3 of 42 cases (7%) with benign neoplasms (P = .0009).
  • The presence of a high mitotic rate (>3/10 high power fields) and tumor cell spindling significantly correlated with malignancy (P = .026 and .041, respectively).
  • There was a highly significant difference in PASS scores between benign and malignant cases (P = .0003).
  • Ki-67-positive tumor had a significantly higher chance of harboring tumor necrosis than Ki-67-negative neoplasms (P < .01).
  • There was no difference in staining between benign and malignant pheochromocytomas using p53, Bcl-2, mdm-2, cyclin D1, p21, and p27. CONCLUSIONS:.
  • (1) A PASS score of <4 predicted benign pheochromocytomas. (2) All malignant pheochromocytomas had a PASS score >/=6, which was significantly higher compared with the benign lesions.
  • Ki-67 may help identify those neoplasms at risk for recurrence by prompting the pathologist to look aggressively for adverse histologic features.

  • [Title] Testicular lesions other than germ cell tumours: feasibility of testis-sparing surgery.
  • OBJECTIVE: To review all non-germ-cell testicular lesions presenting at our institution and to determine the feasibility of testis-sparing surgery for these patients.
  • The study comprised men who had radical orchidectomy for suspected germ-cell tumour but had other final pathology, and those where testis-sparing surgery was attempted for a presumed benign lesion.
  • The lesions could be categorized as inflammatory (three hyalinized fibrosis, two sarcoidosis, one chronic inflammation), cystic (one epidermoid cyst, one unilocular cyst), benign neoplasms (two adenomatoid tumours, one Leydig cell tumour, one capillary haemangioma) or malignant neoplasms (one lymphoma).
  • In the other five, testis-sparing surgery was not attempted because the preoperative impression was that of a germ cell tumour.
  • CONCLUSION: Testis-sparing surgery might be possible if there is significant suspicion of a benign lesion.

  • [Title] Adenomatoid tumor of the adrenal gland: a clinicopathologic study of 3 cases.
  • Adenomatoid tumors are relatively uncommon benign neoplasms of mesothelial origin, usually occurring in the male and female genital tracts.
  • The differential diagnosis includes adrenocortical carcinoma and metastatic carcinoma, especially signet ring cell carcinoma.
  • Because of its glandular pattern, an adenomatoid tumor may be confused with an adenocarcinoma.
  • One patient presented with abdominal pain due to the presence of a concurrent large adrenal cyst.
  • The tumor was an incidental radiological finding in another case and was discovered during the course of a workup for hypertension in the third case.
  • In our experience, the key to the diagnosis of this rare benign tumor is to consider adenomatoid tumor in the differential diagnosis of any glandular tumor occurring in the adrenal gland.

  • The mRNA expression of 6 MAGE-A (MAGE-A1-A6) antigens by the tumor focal cells and cancer cells circulating in blood was studied in solid malignant and benign neoplasms.
  • MAGE- A1-A6 mRNA expression was detected in the tumor focal cells in more than 90% of cases of cancer of the breast, lung, and stomach and melanoma cell lines.
  • The detection rate of peripheral blood MAGE-A1-A6-positive tumor cells was 95% in lung cancer, 53% in corpus uteri cancer, 67% in gastric cancer, 63% in breast cancer, 33% in melanoma, and 42% in uterine myoma.

  • [Title] Ovarian neoplasms and pregnancy.
  • The aim of our study was to investigate the incidence of ovarian malignant neoplasms in pregnancy.
  • We examined 37 pregnant women; the incidence of ovarian cancer was 13.5% vs 6.5% in other works.
  • Treatment depends on the neoplasms type, grade, and presence of the metastatic pathways.
  • In benign neoplasms, we used laparoscopic treatment with minor invasion.
  • Distribution of benign neoplasms was in the same range as that in other works.

  • BACKGROUND: Inverted papillomas are primarily benign neoplasms that occur in the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses.
  • Comparison was made between the group of patients with inverted papillomas and associated squamous cell carcinomas and the group of patients with benign inverted papillomas.
  • Our data suggest, that the association between carcinoma and inverted papilloma is indirect and that the gradual progression from inverted papilloma to a malignant neoplasm is if at all infrequent.

  • Hibernomas are rare benign neoplasms composed of brown adipose tissue.
  • In this report, we present and characterize the spectrum of morphological features of the myxoid variant of hibernoma by describing the case of a 45-year-old white man who was referred to our hospital for treatment of an ovoid mass in the posterior segment of the right deltoid region.
  • Histopathologic examination of the resected specimen revealed a multilobulated, tan-yellow, variegated tumor with a rubbery consistency that was separated by thick fibrous septa with interspersed collections of foamy histiocytes.
  • This report highlights recent advances that may help confirm the diagnosis and explain the differential diagnosis of this rare tumor.
  • This is one of only a few cases of a myxoid variant of hibernoma reported in the literature.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Paraneoplastic syndromes represent the clinical manifestations of the indirect and remote effects produced by tumor metabolites or other products.
  • Paraneoplastic syndromes related to primary malignancies of the head and neck region can be categorized as: endocrine, cutaneous or dermatologic, hematologic, neurologic, osteoarticular or rheumatologic, ocular syndromes.
  • Sometimes, paraneoplastic syndromes can be more serious than the consequences of the primary tumor itself and can precede, follow or be concurrent to the diagnosis of a malignancy; moreover, they can dominate the clinical picture and thus lead to errors with respect to the origin and type of the primary tumor.
  • Physicians who deal with cancer-associated syndromes should be able to differentiate the paraneoplastic syndromes from the benign disorders that mimic them.
  • Patients with a suspected paraneoplastic disorder should undergo a complete panel of laboratory studies, in addition to imaging studies and endoscopy.
  • Identification of paraneoplastic syndromes allow the clinician to make an early diagnosis and to provide adequate treatment of tumors, with a favorable oncologic outcome and improved life expectancy for the patient.
  • These syndromes can follow the clinical course of the tumor and thus be useful for monitoring its evolution.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • CONTEXT: Schwannomas are benign neoplasms arising from peripheral nerve tissue.
  • We present the histological and cytological features of a pancreatic schwannoma with cystic degeneration.
  • CASE REPORT: A 51-year-old male was diagnosed with a cystic tumor measuring approximately 6 cm in the tail of the pancreas.
  • Cystic fluid from the tumor was obtained intraoperatively by fine-needle aspiration, and it showed scattered spindle tumor cells against a background of hemosiderin-laden histiocytes.
  • During the operation, we informed the surgeon that the tumor consisted of "atypical spindle cells".
  • Histologically, the tumor was diagnosed as a schwannoma with cystic degeneration which had originated in the pancreas.
  • The diagnosis was confirmed by positive immunostaining of the tumor cells in both histological and cytological materials for S-100 protein.
  • CONCLUSION: Problems occasionally arise with the use of fine-needle aspiration in the diagnosis of cystic diseases of the pancreas because of the difficulty in obtaining adequate specimens.
  • Nevertheless, it should be emphasized that intraoperative fine-needle aspiration is as informative as a frozen section diagnosis, when appropriately performed.

  • [Title] Quantitative biochemical analysis of lactate dehydrogenase in human ovarian tissues: correlation with tumor grade.
  • In an attempt to identify glycolytic capacity of normal and neoplastic human ovary, total lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) activity was measured in tissue cytosol originating from 69 patients (18 with benign ovarian tumor, 34 with ovarian carcinoma, six with nonepithelial ovarian malignant tumors, and 11 with tumor metastatic to ovary) and compared to the LDH activity of normal ovarian tissues (n = 19).
  • Median value of total LDH-specific activity expressed as U/mg protein was 0.546 in normal tissues, 0.584 in benign tumors, 1.071 in malignancies metastatic to ovaries, 0.872 in nonepithelial primary ovarian tumors, and 0.818 in primary carcinomas.
  • A significant rise in LDH-specific activity was found in malignant primary and secondary tumors of epithelial and nonepithelial origin, but not in benign neoplasms, compared to the activity in normal tissue.
  • The subgroup of grade 1 tumors did not differ in LDH activity from normal and benign ovarian tissue.
  • Obtained results suggest that direct correlation might exist between ovarian epithelial tumor grade and lactate dehydrogenase activity.

  • [Title] Iatrogenic metastasis of a benign meningioma to the periosteum at the site of previous craniotomy: a case report.
  • As far as we know, the presented case is the first report in the literature of iatrogenic seeding of a benign meningioma to the scalp following surgery.
  • A 37-year-old woman was admitted because of a relapsing meningioma in the frontal lobe.
  • At follow-up, three new masses were found: a bifrontal meningioma on the edge of the falx, a smaller one in the falx just under the saggital sinus and a small mass, believed to be ectopic, in the periosteum at the site of the previous craniotomy.
  • Histologically, the ectopic tumor was an atypical meningioma, similar to the one excised 10 years previously, with no relation to the other two intracranial masses.
  • Because of the histological similarity and the location in the old craniotomy, the ectopic tumor was believed to have developed from an implantation metastasis as a consequence of the first surgery.
  • The authors suggest that strict adherence to oncological principles should be applied in the case of benign neoplasms in order to prevent contamination of wounds with tumor cells and potential recurrence.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Giant cell tumor of the cervical spine: a series of 22 cases and outcomes.
  • STUDY DESIGN: A consecutive series of 22 giant cell tumor (GCTs) of the cervical spine which underwent surgical treatment was observed from 1990-2003.
  • Though surgical resection of GCT arising in the cervical spine is commonly regarded as a recommended treatment method, it is still a challenge to achieve satisfactory results, especially for the late or recurrent cases, and there are few large series of cases reported with long-term follow-up of this tumor that are found in special segments in the literature.
  • The choice of surgical intervention was based on the Weinstein-Boriani-Biagini grading system.
  • One special lesion located in the posterior element of C7 received "en bloc" resection.
  • RESULTS: One patient with C1-C2 GCT (vertebral body and posterior element involvement) who received subtotal resection of the tumor showed aggravation of neurologic deficit and died shortly after the surgery.
  • The symptom of radicular pain almost disappeared, and patients suffering from spinal cord compression recovered well with at least 1 or 2 levels based on Frankel grading system when re-evaluated at 3 months after operation.
  • As a kind of benign but local aggressive or low potential malignancy tumor, we should take an aggressive attitude to excise the tumor as much as possible while reserving the neural function as a precondition.
  • Unlike in the thoracic and lumbar spine, a strictly "en bloc" resection is often not a feasible option because of the involvement of critical neurovascular structures.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Benign nerve tumors of the hand and the forearm.
  • We used a hand surgeon's 1978-1994 pathology reports to retrospectively review the incidence, preoperative and postoperative diagnoses, and presenting signs and symptoms of benign nerve tumors.
  • Twenty-four (11.5%) of our series of 208 soft-tissue tumors of the hand and the forearm were benign nerve tumors.
  • Nerve tumors were the third most common tumor after giant cell tumors of tendon sheath and inclusion cysts.
  • Correct preoperative diagnosis was made in only 1 (4.2%) of the 24 cases.
  • Two (16.7%) of the 12 patients with schwannomas and 4 (33.3%) of the 12 patients with neurofibromas had neurologic symptoms.
  • In the literature, incidence of benign nerve tumors is much lower (ie, 1%-5%), and preoperative diagnosis consistently incorrect in our study.
  • Incidence of neurologic symptoms (numbness, paresthesia) as presenting symptoms was higher in our study than previously documented.
  • Although benign nerve tumors are most often located on the volar surface of the hand, 25% of the lesions we found were on the dorsal surface of the fingers.

  • Schwannoma is usually a subcutaneous benign neoplasm that derives from nerve sheath.
  • Pain and neurologic symptoms are uncommon, and exclusively dermal tumors are very rare.
  • Solitary schwannoma has a traumatic origin in some cases, and rarely occur as a part of neurofibromatosis or schwannomatosis.
  • To our knowledge, we present the first case of a painful dermal schwannoma in association to foreign material.

  • 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.
