  • BACKGROUND: Primary solid tumors of the greater omentum are extremely rare.
  • Lipomas, leiomyomas, fibromas, and neurofibromas have been described as benign tumors of the greater omentum, but angiofibrolipomas have not.
  • Emergency midline laparotomy demonstrated a tumor of the greater omentum with areas of ischemia, necrosis and hemorrhage.
  • Histological exam revealed angiofibrolipoma of the greater omentum.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Angiofibrolipoma of the greater omentum may present as a surgical emergency due to torsion.
  • When a tumor of the omentum is found during surgery, complete excision is the treatment of choice when a definitive histology result is received.

  • Adenomatoid tumors are benign mesothelial neoplasms most commonly found in the male and female genital tracts.
  • Here we report another case of multiple extragenital adenomatoid tumors involving the mesocolon and omentum.
  • At our hospital, an 8.0x7.5x6.0 cm tumor at the mesocolon of the sigmoid colon and three omental nodules measuring up to 2.5x2.0x1.7 cm were resected.
  • Immunohistochemically, the tumor cells were positive for pan-cytokeratin AE1/AE3, vimentin, cytokeratin 5/6 and calretinin.
  • Despite their rarity, adenomatoid tumors should be included in the differential diagnosis of multiple intra-abdominal tumors.

  • Central pancreatectomy (CP) is a segmental pancreatic resection indicated to remove benign or low-grade malignant tumors of the isthmus and proximal part of the body of the pancreas.
  • Operation requires a midline or a bilateral subcostal incision; the lesser sac is entered through dissection of the transverse colon from the omentum or by transecting the gastrocolic ligament.
  • Subsequently, the pancreatic portion harboring the tumor is isolated at its superior margin from the splenic artery after the pancreas is transacted.
  • The resected pancreatic specimen is sent to the pathologist for confirmation of diagnosis and to check if the resection margins are adequate.
  • Central pancreatectomy is a safe technique for benign or low malignant tumors of the pancreatic neck that allows curing the tumor with evident functional results without increasing the risk for the patient.

  • We report herein the case of a giant lipoma of the greater omentum that was treated by laparoscopic surgery.
  • A 71-year-old male patient was admitted with a diagnosis of sigmoid colon cancer.
  • Laparoscopic examination revealed a smooth-surfaced, giant yellow tumor at the lower border of the greater omentum that was unattached to the surrounding organs.
  • After laparoscopic resection of the tumor and cholecystectomy, a 10-cm midline incision was made in the lower abdomen to remove the tumor and the gallbladder.

  • [Title] Acute abdomen due to rupture of hemangiopericytoma of the greater omentum: case report.
  • Hemangiopericytoma (HP) is a vascular tumor that mostly develops in soft tissues.
  • The greater omentum is a very rare site for its occurrence.
  • We evaluated a case of acute abdomen due to rupture of a HP of the greater omentum.
  • A 70-year-old patient with severe abdominal pain was operated with the diagnosis of acute abdomen.
  • A semi-solid mass (12 x 10 x 6 cm) originating from the greater omentum was detected during surgery.
  • There was active bleeding from the tumor.
  • Pathologic evaluation of this lesion was reported as benign HP.
  • HP of the greater omentum can be the cause of intraabdominal bleeding leading to acute abdomen.
  • Surgical resection is the treatment of choice, especially in benign hemangiopericytomas.

  • [Title] Paraganglioma of the greater omentum: Case report and review of the literature.
  • BACKGROUND: Extra-adrenal, intra-abdominal paraganglioma constitutes a rare neoplasm and, moreover, its location in the greater omentum is extremely infrequent.
  • CASE PRESENTATION: A 46-year-old woman with an unremarkable medical history presented with an asymptomatic greater omentum mass that was discovered incidentally during ultrasonographic evaluation due to menstrual disturbances.
  • Exploratory laparotomy revealed a large mass in the greater omentum.
  • The tumor was completely excised along with the greater omentum.
  • Histopathology offered the diagnosis of benign greater omentum paraganglioma.
  • CONCLUSION: This is the second reported case of greater omentum paraganglioma.
  • Thorough histopathologic evaluation is imperative for diagnosis and radical excision is the treatment of choice.
  • Since there are no definite microscopic criteria for the distinction between benign and malignant tumors, prolonged follow-up is necessary.

  • 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.
  • Rare mitoses were seen in most lesions except the larger omentum lesion.
  • 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.

  • Dedifferentiation is a well recognized, if sometimes controversial, form of tumor progression in certain types of soft tissue and bone sarcoma, and confers a worse prognosis when compared with the low-grade counterpart.
  • To date, dedifferentiation has not been described in solitary fibrous tumor (SFT).
  • Two cases were intrathoracic, 2 were located in the deep soft tissue of thigh, and single cases were located in the omentum, scalp, retroperitoneum, and abdominal wall.
  • In addition to typical features of benign-appearing SFT there was an abrupt transition to nondistinctive high-grade sarcoma in all cases.
  • One patient with an 11.5 cm intrathoracic tumor is alive with disease at 58 months after recurrence and metastasis.
  • Our results demonstrate that dedifferentiation in SFT, comparable with that in other low grade/intermediate soft-tissue tumors, poses a higher risk of tumor recurrence and/or metastasis, most notably in large and deep-seated tumors.

  • This family of tumors includes angiomyolipoma (AML), clear cell sugar tumor of the lung (CCST), lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM), and very rare tumors in other locations.
  • Sites of involvement included the omentum or mesentery (6 cases), uterus (4 cases), pelvic soft tissues (3 cases), abdominal wall (2 cases), uterine cervix (2 cases), and vagina, retroperitoneum, thigh, falciform ligament, scalp, broad ligament, forearm, shoulder, and neck (1 case each).
  • Recurrence and/or metastasis was strongly associated tumor size > median size (8 cm), mitotic activity greater than 1/50 HPF, and necrosis.
  • We conclude that PEComas of soft tissue and gynecologic origin may be classified as "benign," "of uncertain malignant potential," or "malignant."
  • Small PEComas without any worrisome histologic features are most likely benign.

  • [Title] Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor of the uterus: a clinicopathologic study of 6 cases emphasizing distinction from aggressive mesenchymal tumors.
  • Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is an indolent spindle cell proliferation that can histologically resemble various malignant mesenchymal neoplasms; however, it generally behaves as a benign or locally recurrent tumor.
  • Most IMTs involve the lung, mesentery, omentum, or retroperitoneum.
  • Mitotic activity ranged from 0 to 2 mitotic figures per 10 high power fields (HPF) except in one tumor that focally had up to 8 mitotic figures per 10 HPF.
