  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Cellular neurothekeomas are distinctive benign cutaneous tumors of uncertain histogenesis.
  • Mean tumor size was 1.1 cm (range: 0.3 to 6 cm; 90% <2 cm).
  • In 30% of cases, neurothekeoma was suggested by the referring pathologist; the most common other diagnoses offered were plexiform fibrohistiocytic tumor, benign fibrous histiocytoma, and a low-grade sarcoma.
  • Histologically, most cases were poorly marginated; 33 (25%) infiltrated fat, and 10 (8%) entrapped skeletal muscle (all but 1 situated on the face).
  • Ten tumors recurred locally (7 situated on the face), after a mean of 18 months; tumor had been marginally excised or had involved excision margins in all cases with available information.
  • There is no good evidence that these lesions show nerve sheath differentiation and the nomenclature will likely change when the tumor cell lineage is better defined.

  • Clear cell hidradenoma (CCH) is a benign skin appendageal tumor.
  • Most cases occur in the skin of the head and face.
  • The tumor usually presents as a solitary firm dermal nodule.
  • Histologically, it is a well-circumscribed, nonencapsulated tumor formed of 2 cell types, one with clear cytoplasm and the other with dark eosinophilic cytoplasm.
  • Although most cases are benign, occasional cases with malignant transformation have been reported.
  • Although rare, inclusion of CCH should be included in the differential diagnosis of benign solid and clear cell tumors of the vulvar skin.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Trichilemmal carcinoma is a cutaneous adnexal tumor originating from the outer root sheath of hair follicle, and it was first described by Headington in 1976.
  • Clinically, it usually occurs as an asymptomatic solitary papule, nodule or mass on the face or scalp.
  • This neoplasm is a malignant counterpart of trichilemmoma, and it has been reported in the literature as trichilemmal carcinoma, tricholemmal carcinoma, malignant trichilemmoma, and tricholemmocarcinoma.
  • Although histologically, trichilemmal carcinoma frequently has maliganant features, it has a relatively benign clinical behavior.
  • We think Mohs micrographic surgery is a useful treatment modality in trichilemmal carcinoma because the final skin defect is smaller than a wide excision.
  • We report a case of primary trichilemmal carcinoma which had developed on the face, treated with Mohs micrographic surgery.

  • We present a series of 18 atypical apocrine mixed tumors of the skin characterized by architectural and/or cytologic atypia but which nevertheless do not qualify these lesions as carcinomas.
  • There were 15 males and 3 females, and all but 1 presented with solitary nodules ranging in size from 4 to 20 mm; 1 female had a large tumor of 12 cm.
  • The tumors were preferentially located on the head area, especially the face (13 cases).
  • Overall, the lesions manifested a rather benign architecture, usually with good circumscription, lack of capsular breach or hypercellularity; however, some asymmetry, focally irregular infiltrationlike or pushing tumorous borders were seen.
  • As controls, 4 authentic malignant mixed tumors were studied, but these likewise tested negative for HER-2/neu protein expression and showed no gene amplification; 1 malignant mixed tumor had polysomy 17.

  • CASE REPORT: An 11-year-old girl consulted for a recurrent subcutaneous tumor of the chin which had been operated 4 months earlier.
  • The histology study established the diagnosis of neurothekoma due to the presence of mitosis atypia, cellular nodules, and extension to the hypodermis.
  • Immunohistochemistry confirmed the diagnosis.
  • DISCUSSION: Neurothekoma is a benign tumor observed in young women, mainly on the face.
  • The typical immunohistochemical pattern enables differential diagnosis with myxoid neurothekoma, melanocytic and nervous system tumors.

  • The tumor apparently arose from a cylindroma and had features of spiradenoma.
  • Multiple cylindromatosis is an uncommon hereditary autosomal dominant disease, which is characterized by multiple skin adnexal tumors like cylindromas and trichoepitheliomas and occasional spiradenomas.
  • Cylindroma is an uncommon benign tumor, which originates from skin appendages and is most commonly found on the scalp and face with a strong predilection for middle-aged and elderly females.
  • Although cylindromas are usually benign neoplasms, carcinoma arising in such neoplasms is rare with only sporadic reports in literature.

  • In the past, she had been treated for basal cell carcinoma (BCC) of the face; the referring physician was concerned that the new lesions might also be BCC.
  • On physical examination, in addition to scars from a radical mastectomy and midline abdominal laparotomy, four skin lesions were noted: two on the scalp, one on the tragus, and one on the mid-back.
  • The lesions on the scalp and mid-back revealed lobules of sebaceous cells in the dermis with a minority of surrounding basaloid cells, consistent with a diagnosis of sebaceous adenoma (Fig. 1).
  • Although the lesion on the frontal scalp also showed sebaceous differentiation, there were a greater number of basaloid cells, some with hyperchromatic nuclei and mitotic figures; this was consistent with a diagnosis of sebaceous epithelioma (Fig. 2).
  • No further treatment was required for these benign sebaceous tumors, but their presence defined our patient's condition as Muir-Torre syndrome.
  • Mohs' micrographic surgery was performed on the tragus BCC and the margins were tumor free in one stage.

  • [Title] Composite tumors associating trichoblastoma and benign epidermal/follicular neoplasm: another proof of the follicular nature of inverted follicular keratosis.
  • BACKGROUND: Trichoblastomas (TBs) are benign follicular tumors that can present either as solitary nodule or as multiple facial papules.
  • Only one case of sporadic TB in a composite tumor has been reported, arising in an apocrine poroma.
  • We report the association of TB and benign epidermal/follicular neoplasm in six patients.
  • Lesions were localized on the face and scalp in four of six patients.
  • It was often positive in the associated neoplasm.
  • CONCLUSION: TB can be associated with benign epidermal/follicular neoplasm in composite tumors.

  • Neurofibromas, defined as various benign tumors, are hallmarks of the disease.
  • Surgical treatment consists of partial removal, to prevent sacrificing nontumoral tissues, and is aimed at acceptable functional and cosmetic results, considering the hyperextensibility and lack of elasticity of patients' skin.
  • METHODS: The authors operated on 33 neurofibromatosis type 1 patients (15 men and 18 women) suffering from diffuse or plexiform benign facial neurofibromas with a facial aesthetic unit remodeling surgical technique with a resection pattern based on the substraction between aesthetic units of the affected hemiface and the symmetry of the nonaffected one.
  • No preoperative angiography, arterial embolization of the tumor, or autologous transfusion was required.
  • The average tumor size was 11.13 cm.
  • One patient suffering from bilateral plexiform neurofibromas was beyond the limit of the technique (14 debulking procedures) and required a face transplantation.

  • Fibrous histiocytoma is a tumor composed of a mixture of fibroblastic and histiocytic cells.
  • These lesions most often arise on the skin, but may rarely occur in soft deep tissues.
  • The diagnosis of FH may be clinically difficult when the lesion is located in the deep tissues, and is frequently confirmed after local excision.
  • The most important diagnostic necessity is the separation of this tumor from aggressive forms of fibrohistiocytic neoplasms.
  • We present a unique case of malignant fibrous histiocytoma developing in left buccal mucosa very near to the surgical margin from which a benign fibrous histiocytoma of the mandible was excised 3 years earlier in a 31 year old female.

  • [Title] Primary mucinous carcinoma of the skin: a population-based study.
  • BACKGROUND: Primary mucinous carcinoma of the skin (PMCS) is a rare malignant tumor deriving from the sweat glands.
  • It is typically located on the head and is often mistaken for a metastasis from a more common primary tumor of the breast or gastrointestinal tract.
  • Seven cases were found on the scalp or neck, five on the eyelids, two on the face, and one on the trunk.
  • CONCLUSION: PMCS is a rare, slow-growing tumor which rarely metastasizes and is associated with low mortality.
  • However, the precise number may be higher, since PMCS is an indolent tumor, which may be mistaken for a benign tumor and thus not always examined histologically.

  • Angiosarcoma of the skin is an extremely rare malignant tumor of vascular origin that usually arises in the scalp and face of elderly persons.
  • To clarify its characteristic features and cell cycle kinetics, we quantitatively evaluated the expression of cell cycle-related molecules and vascular endothelial growth factors using immunohistochemical staining, for comparison with 2 benign vascular tumors of the skin, the capillary hemangioma and the cavernous hemangioma.
  • These results suggest that not only VEGFR-2-mediated signal but also VEGFR-3-mediated signal may contribute to proliferation of vascular tumor cells as autocrine and paracrine signaling factors.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Nevus sebaceus (NS) is a congenital hamartomatous lesion, usually involving the scalp or the face.
  • Various benign and malignant neoplasms can develop in association with NS, the most common being trichoblastoma, syringocystadenoma papilliferum, viral warts and basal cell carcinoma (BCC).
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively examined the clinical and histopathological records of 15 NS cases with an associated tumor which were diagnosed between 1996 and 2004.
  • RESULTS: All cases were adults and 3 of them had more than one tumor.
  • Six cases had BCC, which is a higher incidence of malignant tumor association with NS, than that reported in last years.
  • Trichoblastoma was observed in 3 cases and was the most common benign tumor in our series.
  • CONCLUSION: Clinical features are not sufficient enough to make an exact diagnosis of benign or malignant secondary tumors.
  • Though prophylactic excision for NS is done less in last years, especially adult patients should closely be followed for any new changes evoking tumor development on this congenital lesion.

  • [Title] Giant meta-typical carcinoma: an unusual tumor.
  • It is typically located on the back and face, often with clinical features of basal cell carcinoma but tending to be more aggressive with enhanced prospects of lymph node or distant metastases.
  • Our report describes a huge neglected MTC of the back of ten-year duration, a giant ulcero-vegetative tumor measuring 20 x 25 cm.
  • Histologic examination of specimens from the margins and periphery revealed aspects of both basal and squamous cell carcinoma, while the ulcerated center showed sclerotic tissue without tumor.
  • The MTC we describe exhibited benign biologic behavior.
  • This may have been related to an intense inflammatory host response with elimination of neoplastic tissue and consequent local sclerosis evident in the central tumor-free portion.
  • This central tumor regression is to our knowledge a unique finding in MTC.

  • The etiology of this tumor is not obvious.
  • About 80% of the tumors occur on the face.
  • The histological features of the KA are often very similar to those of a cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma; however, the tumor structure usually provides a basis for their difference.
  • For a clinician and a pathologist it is important to consider a benign lesion like Keratoacanthoma (KA) in the differential diagnosis of ulcerated nasal lesions and pay attention to differ it from Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) which has a different and aggressive management.

  • 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.

  • [Title] Predisposing factors and outcomes of malignant skin tumors in children.
  • BACKGROUND: Although benign and metastatic tumors occur in children, primary malignant skin tumors are uncommon in the pediatric population.
  • In this study, the authors aimed to determine the incidence, risk factors, treatment, reconstruction details, and outcome of malignant skin tumors occurring in pediatric patients at the Hospital for Sick Children.
  • METHODS: The electronic database (CoPath) of the pathology department was searched for all cases of malignant skin tumors treated surgically between January of 2000 and September of 2008.
  • RESULTS: Eighteen patients had been diagnosed and treated surgically for malignant skin tumors.
  • Diagnosis of malignant melanoma was made in 14 patients, diagnosis of basal cell carcinoma was made in four patients, and diagnosis of squamous cell carcinoma was made in one patient.
  • The most common sites of occurrence were lower limbs (33 percent) and face (28 percent).
  • All cases of basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma underwent surgical resection and primary closure or skin graft.
  • Of the patients with malignant melanoma, seven underwent surgical excision and primary closure and five had excision and skin graft.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Malignant skin tumors are rare in children.
  • In accordance with previously published data, malignant melanoma was the most frequent tumor in our study.
