  • The description of the course of the tumors differs somewhat, but it is generally considered as a benign lesion.
  • METHODS: Tumor specimens of each patient were sectioned and stained with hematoxylin-eosin, Fontana-Masson, Prussian blue, and periodic acid-Schiff (PAS).
  • The tumor sites included the spinal nerve root (5 patients), cranial nerve (1), greater omentum (1), subcutaneous tissue (3), mesentery (1), bone (1) and mediastinum (1).
  • One patient (9.1%) with a primary tumor in the greater omentum developed another primary tumor of the same type in the subcutaneous tissue of the abdominal wall after the first operation.
  • Local recurrence of the tumor was seen in 2 patients (18.2%).
  • The tumor was composed of spindled and epithelioid cells with abundant intracytoplasmic melanin pigments.
  • Ultrastructurally, numerous elongated tumor-cell processes, duplicated basement membrane and melanosomes were observed in all developmental stages.
  • Distinguishing between this tumor and malignant melanoma is of paramount importance in planning of management.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Sporadic desmoid tumor. An exceptional cause of cystic pancreatic lesion.
  • CONTEXT: Desmoid tumors are rare, benign soft tissue tumors, characterized by the proliferation of fibroblasts in an abundant collagen extra-cellular matrix.
  • Intra-abdominal forms involve the mesentery and retroperitoneum and usually occur associated with familial adenomatous polyposis or Gardner's syndrome.
  • Although desmoid tumors do not metastasize, their evolution can be life-threatening due to aggressive local invasion, such as mesentery involvement.
  • The diagnosis of mucinous cystadenocarcinoma was suspected preoperatively and the patient underwent a splenopancreatectomy with en-bloc resection of the left colonic flexure, duodenojejunal junction and part of the posterior gastric wall.
  • Pathological analysis revealed fibroblastic proliferation arising in musculoaponeurotic structures consistent with a desmoid tumor.
  • The diagnosis was confirmed by immunocytochemical analysis and the assessment of the beta-catenin gene mutation.
  • No treatment was given postoperatively to prevent desmoid tumor recurrence.
  • CONCLUSION: Desmoid tumors are very rare in the pancreas and their diagnosis can be difficult, such as in our case where it presented as a cystic lesion.

  • [Title] Mesenteric cysts: an institution experience over 14 years and review of literature.
  • BACKGROUND: Mesenteric cysts are rare intra-abdominal lesions and account for only one in 100,000 acute adult admissions.
  • In this study, we present a series of patients with mesenteric cysts, with emphasis on the presentation, management, and outcome.
  • The cyst originated from the retroperitoneum in five patients, the sigmoid mesocolon in four patients, and small bowel mesentery in four patients.
  • Although most of the cysts were benign, three had foci of malignancy and another had a focus of gastrointestinal stromal tumor.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Mesenteric cysts have diverse presentation and arise from a variety of sites.

  • A case series of three adult patients who had mesenteric lymphangioma is reported along with a review of literature.
  • In our cases, preoperative diagnosis of mesenteric lymphangioma was not suspected and all the patients had laparotomy.
  • Peroperative findings revealed mesenteric masses, which were simulating cavitatory form of mesenteric node tuberculosis.
  • It is stressed that mimicking of mesenteric lymphangioma with a cavitatory form of tuberculosis of mesenteric nodes in areas of high prevalence may lead to its misdiagnosis.
  • Histopathology confirmed diagnosis of mesenteric lymphangioma in each case.
  • Although rare and difficult to diagnose preoperatively, surgical resection is to be considered gold standard treatment for mesenteric lymphangioma.

  • An inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor is an uncommon benign tumor located in various organs that can be misdiagnosed as a malignant neoplasm.
  • The presumptive diagnosis was Burkitt's lymphoma.
  • The histopathological diagnosis was inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor.
  • Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor is a rare pseudosarcomatous clinical and pathological entity.
  • Although this tumor is more commonly reported in the lung, it can be detected in extrapulmonary sites, including the mesentery.
  • Because the choice of treatment for this tumor is conservative surgery, an accurate preoperative analysis is important to avoid any unnecessary aggressive surgical intervention or other therapeutic approaches.

  • Sclerosing mesenteritis is a rare and benign inflammatory entity characterized by fibrofatty thickening of the mesentery.
  • In this present case, MR imaging demonstrated tissue characterization of fibrosis, and partial maximum intensity projection (MIP) and three-dimensional angiography images obtained using multislice CT clearly revealed the extent of the tumor and the vascular appearance affected by the mass.
  • However, a mesenteric metastasis from the carcinoid tumor may show such imaging features.
  • Therefore, when encountering such a case, we suggest that a tentative diagnosis of sclerosing mesenteritis be made, followed by a biopsy for intraoperative histopathologic analysis to avoid aggressive surgery.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [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.
  • Rare extragenital adenomatoid tumors have been identified in the adrenal glands, heart, mesentery, pleura, and lymph nodes.
  • 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.
  • 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.

  • A 29-yr-old woman underwent laparoscopic resection for a giant mesenteric lipoma causing compression of the ileal loop.
  • Microscopically, the mass was characterized by homogenous mature adipose tissue without cellular atypia, which was compatible with the diagnosis of a mesenteric lipoma.
  • Despite the benign nature of this tumor, total excision with or without the affected intestinal loop should be considered if intestinal symptoms such as abdominal pain are present.

  • [Title] Multiple synchronous granular cell tumors involving the colon, appendix and mesentery: a case report and review of the literature.
  • A granular cell tumor (GCT) is typically a benign neural tumor of Schwann cell origin that occurs in the 4th to 6th decade of life usually as a solitary painless nodule in the dermis or subcutis.
  • Full colonoscopy and CT-scan studies revealed multiple GCTs of the colon, appendix and the mesentery, raising the suspicion of malignant metastatic disease.
  • However, surgical resection of all the masses in an exploratory laporatomy proved them to be benign GCTs.
  • It is also the first case of GCT involving the mesentery.

  • Intra-abdominal fibromatosis (IAF) is a benign mesenchymal lesion that can occur throughout the gastrointestinal tract.
  • Although rare, it is the most common primary tumor of the mesentery and can develop at any age.
  • We describe a rare case of primary IAF involving the mesentery and small bowel which clinically, macroscopically and histologically mimicked malignant gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST).
  • This report highlights the fact that benign IAF can be misdiagnosed as a malignant GIST localized in the mesentery or arising from the intestinal wall.

  • [Title] A case report of mesenteric mucinous cystoadenoma with review of the literature.
  • BACKGROUND: Few cases of primary retroperitoneal mucinous cystoadenoma, a rare benign tumor, have been reported in the literature so far.
  • The pathogenesis of this tumour is not completely understood yet.Our case is particularly significant since the localization in the mesentery has been described only once before in the literature.
  • Unless biologically benign, this tumour can cause relevant clinical symptoms related to the size and site (compression or obstruction of organs).
  • CASE PRESENTATION: We describe the case of a 52-years old woman who had presented with abdominal pain and underwent surgery in order to remove a palpable lump in the mesentery with histological diagnosis of primary mucinous cystoadenoma.
  • Surgical resection is the only way to treat mucinous cystoadenomas, and to have the histological confirmation that the removed mass is a benign tumor.

  • [Title] Malignant serous cystic neoplasm of the pancreas: report of a case and review of the literature.
  • BACKGROUND: In general, serous cystic neoplasms of the pancreas are thought to be benign.
  • Malignant serous cystic neoplasm of the pancreas is a rare clinical entity.
  • CASE REPORT: We report the case of an 87-year-old woman with a serous microcystic neoplasm in the tail of the pancreas that behaved in a malignant fashion.
  • The neoplasm had also invaded the colonic mesentery and splenic hilum.
  • The pancreatic lesion was diagnosed as a large malignant serous cystic neoplasm, and the patient underwent distal pancreatectomy with splenectomy and segmental colectomy.
  • The resected specimen contained a large tumor, 12 x 9 x 8 cm, which occupied the body and tail of the pancreas.
  • Histologically, the tumor was indistinguishable from serous cystadenoma.
  • However, the tumor had invaded surrounding tissues including the splenic vein, and there were splenic invasion and a regional lymph node metastasis.
  • DISCUSSION: There are few reported cases of malignant serous cystic neoplasm, in which malignancy was histologically confirmed in the resected specimen.
  • There are no reports of a negative outcome with complete resection of the tumor.

  • [Title] From the archives of the AFIP: benign fibrous tumors and tumorlike lesions of the mesentery: radiologic-pathologic correlation.
  • Mesenteric fibromatosis, sclerosing mesenteritis, inflammatory pseudotumor, and extrapleural solitary fibrous tumor constitute a loosely associated group of benign fibrous tumors and tumorlike lesions of the mesentery.
  • These lesions are linked histologically by the presence of fibroblasts or fibrosis and anatomically by their location within the mesentery.
  • Although rare, and distinctly different in pathogenesis and biologic behavior, these fibrous lesions have pathologic and radiologic features that overlap with one another and with more common neoplastic and nonneoplastic lesions of the mesentery.
  • Mesenteric fibromatosis is a locally aggressive, benign proliferative process that may occur sporadically or in association with familial adenomatous polyposis.
  • It most frequently manifests as a focal mesenteric mass and may simulate lymphoma, metastatic disease, or a soft-tissue sarcoma.
  • Sclerosing mesenteritis is a rare idiopathic disorder that most commonly produces a stellate mass within the mesentery and should be differentiated from metastatic disease, specifically metastatic carcinoid, because it frequently responds to conservative or medical management.
  • Inflammatory pseudotumor (inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor) is a benign, chronic inflammatory disorder of unknown cause that manifests as a solid mesenteric mass, indistinguishable from malignancy.
  • Extrapleural solitary fibrous tumor is a tumor of submesothelial origin that is identical to the solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura.
  • When located in the mesentery or peritoneal cavity, extrapleural solitary fibrous tumor has an imaging pattern that must be differentiated from metastatic disease, soft-tissue sarcomas, and other benign and malignant neoplasms of the mesentery and peritoneum.
  • Knowledge of this group of benign fibrous tumors and tumorlike lesions of the mesentery is important in the preoperative evaluation of a mesenteric mass.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • More than 90% of patients with adult intussusception have been reported to have an organic cause, with benign or malignant tumors for accounting for approximately 65% of the cases.
  • In general, the diagnosis is easily made by means of computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance (MR) imaging.
  • The imaging appearance of a bowel-within-bowel configuration with or without contained fat and mesenteric vessels, is pathognomonic.
  • As the intussusceptum enters into the intussuscipiens, the mesentery is carried forward and trapped between the overlapping layers of bowel.
  • The twisting or severe constriction of the mesenteric vessels may result in vascular compromise with subsequent edematous thickening of the involved bowel.
  • On CT, the presence of well-known diagnostic CT criteria for strangulated obstruction (especially severe engorgement or twisting of the mesenteric vessels) as well as evidence of loss of the layered pattern, accumulation of extraluminal fluid collection, and bowel perforation, may suggest the diagnosis of intestinal necrosis.
  • However, CT and MR provide excellent pre-operative evaluation, including the possible extension and/or dissemination of a malignant tumor.
