  • 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.

  • [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.

  • 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.

  • Meningiomas are usually benign neoplasms in which extracranial metastases occur very rarely.
  • A computed tomography (CT) scan and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed an intraventricular tumor.
  • We performed a total mass removal, and the histopathologic findings were consistent with benign meningioma.
  • Finally, an evaluation of the chest, abdomen and bone is necessary, especially when related symptoms or signs develop.

  • BACKGROUND: Cystic tumors of ovary, whether benign, borderline, or malignant may be associated with mural nodule of various types, including sarcomas, sarcoma-like mural nodules (SLMN), and foci of anaplastic carcinoma.
  • Cases of serous borderline ovarian tumor with mural nodules of mixed type are very rare.
  • Imaging studies revealed a huge mass localized in pelvis and lower abdomen and grade 1-2 left renal hydronephrosis.
  • Adhesiolysis and de-bulking surgery were performed including bilateral pelvic, para-aortic lymphadenectomy, appendectomy and omentectomy.
  • Left ureter was found to be dilated because of the infiltration of distal part by the tumor, so distal ureteral resection and neoureterocystostomy were performed.
  • Final pathology revealed borderline serous ovarian tumor with mural nodules which were consisted of SLMNs, multiple and sharply demarcated from the adjacent tumor, and sarcomatous nodules showing infiltrative appearance in metastatic regions.

  • [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.

  • 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.

  • Schwannomas are rare tumors, usually benign, originating from the nerve sheath, and found only infrequently in the retroperitoneal space.
  • After incomplete resection and recurrence of the tumor, we were able to diagnose a large retroperitoneal schwannoma that completely displaced the liver to the left abdomen.
  • The patient underwent surgical resection of the schwannoma; pathological evaluation revealed a cystic tumor measuring 18.5 × 18 × 12.5 cm, with tumor cells staining strongly positive for S-100.
  • We describe the diagnostic modalities and difficulties in the approach of a cystic liver tumor.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Eccrine porocarcinoma is a rare malignant tumor of the sweat gland, characterized by a broad spectrum of clinicopathologic presentations.
  • Surprisingly, unlike its benign counterpart eccrine poroma, eccrine porocarcinoma is seldom found in areas with a high density of eccrine sweat glands, like the palms or soles.
  • Instead, eccrine porocarcinoma frequently occurs on the lower extremities, trunk and abdomen, but also on the head, resembling various other skin tumors, as illustrated in the patients described herein.
  • Porocarcinomas are commonly overlooked, or misinterpreted as squamous or basal cell carcinomas as well as other common malignant and even benign skin tumors.
  • Knowledge of the clinical pattern and histologic findings, therefore, is crucial for an early therapeutic intervention, which can reduce the risk of tumor recurrence and serious complications.

  • Pheochromocytomas (PCCs) are rare catecholamine-producing tumors of the adrenal gland which may also occur elsewhere in the abdomen and are then called paragangliomas.
  • A proportion of PCCs occurs in hereditary cancer syndromes, including multiple endocrine neoplasia Type 2 (MEN2), caused by mutations in the RET proto-oncogene, von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease, caused by VHL gene abnormalities, and the pheochromocytoma-paraganglioma (PCC-PGL) syndrome, caused by mutations in SDHB and SDHD.
  • In these, we have performed mutation analysis on normal and tumor tissues for exons 10, 11, and 16 of RET and for the entire coding sequence of VHL, SDHB, and SDHD.
  • All tumors were benign (average follow-up: 12 years) and were located in the adrenal.

  • BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE: Focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH), inflammatory pseudotumor (IPT), adenomatous nodular hyperplasia (ANH), and focal fatty change (FFC) are common hepatic tumor-like lesions, a group of benign liver diseases, which remains difficult to be distinguished from primary liver cancer (PLC).
  • This study was to investigate the clinical features and treatment of these 4 kinds of hepatic tumor-like lesions.
  • METHODS: Clinical data of 70 patients with pathologically conformed hepatic tumor-like lesions, treated in Cancer Center of Sun Yat-sen University from 1992 to 2004, were studied retrospectively.
  • RESULTS: Of the 70 patients, 34 (48.6%) had clinical symptoms, and most of them suffered mild pain in the abdomen; 22 (31.4%) were positive for hepatitis B virus (HBV) antigen; 21 had mild abnormal liver function; 6 had alpha fetal protein (AFP) > 25 microg/L.
  • The ultrasonography and computed tomography (CT) presentations of the tumor-like lesions were various.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Hepatic tumor-like lesions are difficult to be distinguished from PLC.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Angioleiomyoma is a rare benign solitary tumor, arising from the vascular smooth muscle.
  • This tumor usually occurs in the subcutis of extremities, uncommonly in abdomen, often presents as a small (<2 cm) and is treated with excision.
  • CASE: We report an extremely rare case of unusually large angioleiomyoma, first diagnosed as an ovarian tumor with some malignant possibilities by diagnostic imaging.
  • We resected 1.7 kg of tumor from the extra-peritoneal cavity in the lower abdomen.
  • CONCLUSION: This angioleiomyoma is not an obvious malignant tumor because of low mitosis, coagulative necrosis and cellular atypia.
  • There are some possibilities that sex hormones are related with the growth and degeneration of this case's tumor, because those receptors are strongly expressed in the nucleus of tumor cells.

  • Moreover, ultrasound (US) examination of the liver and computerized tomography (CT) scanning of the upper abdomen were performed after the operation in all patients.
  • Also, patients with tumor size more than 1cm underwent a Somatostatin Receptor Scintigraphy (Octreoscan).
  • In sixteen patients the tumor size was less than 1cm, in seven patients the tumor diameter was measured to be 1 to 2cm and in one patient the tumor was 3cm.
  • Most of our patients (16/22) underwent only an appendicectomy, while in the rest of them (in the patients with tumor size between 1-2cm and in the patient with invasion of mesoappendix) a right hemicolectomy was performed.
  • Histological examination and size of the tumor are important factors that contribute to the selection of the surgical treatment and both must be estimated by the surgeons to make the final choice.

  • Mesenchymal hamartoma of the liver is the second most common benign liver tumor in children, yet its biology and pathogenesis are poorly understood.
  • Typically, it presents as a large benign multicystic liver mass in children younger than three years, amenable to complete resection.
  • Ultrasonography, Computed Tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the abdomen were suggestive of a mesenchymal hamartoma of the liver.
  • An attempt was also made to understand the possible etiology of the tumor.

  • [Title] Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor presenting as acute abdomen: report of one case.
  • Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is a very rare benign tumor composed of myofibroblastic spindle cells of uncertain etiology, which can occur at any age and affect any organ system.
  • However, this tumor occurring intraabdominally in children has rarely been reported in Taiwan.
  • Here we present a 1-year-9-month-old boy who had fever and abdominal pain only for 2 days, symptoms mimicking acute abdomen.
  • After imaging study, a huge tumor nearly 10 cm in diameter was incidentally found over the right abdomen with unknown origin and nature.
  • After surgical removal of the tumor, IMT was confirmed by the pathological findings.
  • It is very difficult to make an accurate preoperative diagnosis on this tumor according to past experience, so the role of pathological diagnosis with immunohistochemical study becomes important.

  • Based on the fact that LDP can be performed with similar or shorter operative times, blood loss, complication rates, and length of hospital stay than ODP, it can be recommended as the treatment of choice for benign and noninvasive lesions in experienced hands when clinically indicated.
  • Potential benefits of laparoscopic resection for cancer include the ability to inspect the abdomen and abort the procedure with minimal damage if occult metastases are identified.
  • Can we enucleate a small tumor off the pancreatic body by passing an endoscope through the gastric (or colonic) wall, and bring the specimen out via the mouth or anus?

  • Thus, we made a diagnosis of intestinal lipoma with intussusception and performed laparoscopic partial resection of the ileum, including the tumor.
  • The resected specimen contained a round tumor, 25 x 22 x 20 mm, which was identified as an intestinal lipoma histopathologically.
  • Laparoscopic surgery is the treatment of choice for benign tumors of the small intestine because it is minimally invasive, with cosmetic, physical, and economic benefits.

  • SPECT/CT also showed occult lesions in the mediastinum, abdomen, and pelvis and identified small bone metastases unsuspected on planar imaging.
  • Globally, SPECT/CT had an incremental value over planar imaging in 67.8% of patients, modified therapeutic management in 35.6% of positive cases, and avoided unnecessary treatment in 20.3% of patients with only single benign lesions or physiologic uptake.

  • In a majority of cases, the mass will turn out to be a benign nonfunctional adenoma.
  • The physician needs however to assess the functionality of the mass by evaluating hormone hypersecretion and whether the mass is benign or malignant.
  • Radiologic criteria can help to distinguish between malignant or benign tumor.
  • Surgery is indicated in the presence of a functional tumor or if there is a suspicion of malignancy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • 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).

  • In one patient, the tumour had malignant component (yolk sac) and was given postoperative chemotherapy.
  • Majority (7 out of 8) were histological benign, and in one yolk sac tumour was malignant component which needed chemotherapy.
  • In rest there was no tumour recurrence.
  • As majority are benign, a complete excision preserving the kidneys, is usually curative.
  • Malignancy in the tumour may warrant further chemotherapy.

  • [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).

  • A 67-year-old woman was found to have an incidental pancreatic mass on computed tomographic examination of her abdomen in the course of investigation of hematuria.
  • 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] [Rectum tumor diagnosed by subcutaneous emphysema of the chest].
  • BACKGROUND: Various benign and malignant thoracic or abdominal diseases can cause subcutaneous emphysema on the chest, pneumomediastinum or pneumopericardium.
  • Further examination revealed that this was caused by a rectal tumor causing large bowel obstruction and a consequent perforation of the transverse colon.
  • In case of these patients it is important to remember that even cardiopulmonary symptoms such as pneumomediastinum, pneumopericardium or subcutaneous emphysema of the chest can be signs of severe diseases in the abdomen.

  • 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.

  • The finding of a liver mass, as the second positive finding, was observed in 209 patients (6.2%); of which were 124 patients (59.3%) with hepatic cyst, 51 patients (24.4%) with hemangioma, 16 patients (7.7%) with indetermined nodule, 11 patients (5.3%) with calcification, and 7 patients (3.4%) with malignant tumor while 664 patients (19.5%) had other positive findings.
  • Although the majority of positive findings were benign conditions, some of them might have an adverse effect to the health condition of patients in the long run.

  • The physical signs of acute abdomen were very atypical and soft.
  • Intra-operative findings consisted in both cases in tumor-like appendiceal abscesses, situated behind ileocecal junction, with local inflammation and fibrosis, suggesting a long-term evolution.
  • We present these 2 clinical cases not only for their atypical history problems, but mainly because we consider that this kind of medical attitude could become an undesirable trend, and difficult and even mistaken diagnosis would occur more frequently, which is hard to accept for a benign disease.

  • [Title] Expression of benign and malignant thyroid tissue in ovarian teratomas and the importance of multimodal management as illustrated by a BRAF-positive follicular variant of papillary thyroid cancer.
  • BACKGROUND: The most common type of ovarian germ cell tumor is the teratoma.
  • Thyroid tissue, both benign and malignant, may be a component of an ovarian teratoma.
  • SUMMARY: Malignant thyroid tissue is often difficult to distinguish from benign thyroid tissue arising in ovarian teratomas.
  • Postoperatively, tumor tissue should be referred to pathologists experienced with differentiating benign from malignant struma ovarii.
  • A post-(131)I treatment scan revealed diffuse uptake throughout the abdomen.
  • The tumor was found to be BRAF mutation positive (K601E).

  • It is a rare, benign, hormonally inactive tumor of the adrenal gland composed of mature fat tissue and hematopoietic tissue in varying amounts.
  • This tumour is discovered during autopsy or USG, CT MRI of the abdomen usually by chance and because of that is included in the group of tumors called incidentaloma.
  • Surgical treatment is called for when the diameter of tumor reaches more than 4 cm, tumour shows tendency to fast growth or causes clinical disorders.
  • In cases of small lesions, that show no progression, it is advised to observe the tumor using imaging techniques.
