  • [Title] [A case of desmoid tumor presenting as intra-abdominal abscess].
  • Desmoid tumor is a rare benign tumor derived from fibrous sheath or musculoaponeurotic structure.
  • The tumor is benign histologically but considered as malignant clinically because it has high propensity on infiltrative growth with local invasion and tendency to recurrence after local excision.
  • Especially, when this tumor happens to be in the intra-abdomen, the prognosis is worse because it can cause intestinal obstruction, ureter obstruction and, fistula formation.
  • This tumor occurs more frequently in patients with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP), in post-partume women, and at old surgical incision site.
  • We report a rare case of the young male patient who presented with an acute abdomen and underwent laparotomy and was found to have an intra-abdominal desmoid tumor with abscess formation.

  • [Title] Androgen & vitamin D nuclear receptor expression in archival breast tumour samples.
  • BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE: Breast tumour cells have receptors for androgen and vitamin D and their clinical significance is not completely understood.
  • Therefore, the present study was undertaken to analyze androgen and vitamin D receptor levels in human primary infiltrating ductal breast carcinomas (IDC) and benign breast tumour archival samples and to find out their correlation, if any, with the clinical findings.
  • METHODS: Paraffin blocks of benign and malignant breast tumours were sectioned, deparaffinized, and nuclei released by pepsin digestion.
  • RESULTS: Androgen receptor positive nuclei ranged from 16-66 per cent in the IDC tumours as compared to 36-67 per cent in the benign tumours.
  • Based on flow cytometric comparison of AR expression in AR positive and negative cell lines established earlier, 24 of 28 tumours from postmenopausal women were AR positive compared to all benign tumours and 32 of 33 tumours from pre-menopausal patients.
  • Vitamin D receptor positive nuclei ranged from 14-89 and 2-75 per cent in IDC and benign tumours, respectively.
  • All pre- or post-menopausal tumours were VDR positive as compared to 10 of 15 benign tumours that were VDR positive.
  • No correlation was seen between nuclear androgen and vitamin D receptor expression of the IDC or benign tumours.
  • No statistically significant correlation was found between nuclear receptor expression (per cent positive nuclei or antigen density) with that of tumour stage, lymph node status, tumour grade, patient age or menopausal status.
  • The expression of AR and VDR and the antigen density in the nuclei of the archival breast tumour samples were highly variable because of the tumour heterogeneity.
  • Future studies with fresh biopsy samples of tumour on AR and VDR levels and their up- or down-regulation may be useful while stratifying the patients for hormonal therapy.

  • Renal angiomyolipoma is a benign tumour histologically characterized by a mixture of adipose tissue, smooth muscle cells and thick walled blood vessels.
  • Long-believed to be a benign hamartoma, angiomyolipoma is now considered to arise from perivascular epithelioid cells.
  • Positivity for HMB45, Melan A, CD68 and CD117 are useful for diagnosis.
  • Herein, we report the clinicopathologic and immunohistochemical features of a renal tumour composed of large epithelioid mononucleated or multinucleated cells with abundant acidophilic cytoplasm and prominent nucleoli.
  • Despite the morphologic resemblance of this tumour to renal cell carcinoma, its phenotype (HMB45, Melan A and CD68 positivity and keratin negativity) parallels the phenotypic profile of angiomyolipoma.

  • Fibrous histiocytoma is a benign tumour composed of a mixture of fibroblastic and histiocytic cells.
  • Based on the location of this tumour, fibrous histiocytoma are usually divided into cutaneous types and those involving deep tissues.
  • The diagnosis of fibrous histiocytoma may be clinically difficult when the lesion is located in the deep tissues, and is frequently confirmed after local excision.
  • The most important diagnostic distinction is the separation of this tumour from aggressive forms of fibrohistiocytic neoplasms, including dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans and malignant fibrous histiocytoma.
  • The lesion had been totally excised under local anaesthesia, and histopathology revealed a benign fibrous histiocytoma.
  • The diagnosis, location, treatment and prognosis of fibrous histiocytoma are also discussed.

  • [Title] Surgical experience with 77 primary cardiac tumors.
  • BACKGROUND: To assess the prognosis and to develop management strategies for primary cardiac tumors all patients were included in an ongoing study.
  • 1994 until December 2003 we prospectively evaluated all patients with cardiac tumors.
  • RESULTS: There were a total of 77 primary cardiac tumors.
  • Seventy-three were benign: myxoma (n=59), papillary fibroelastoma (n=11), lipoma (n=2), fibroma (n=1) and four malignant sarcoma (n=4).
  • Minimal invasive right thoracotomy was utilized in 19 of 73 patients all with benign tumor.
  • There were two early deaths (3%): a myxoma patient with triple vessel disease and a LVEF less than 30% and one sarcoma patient.
  • No recurrence or late death was observed in the group of benign tumors.
  • However, two remaining patients with sarcoma had recurrent disease 10 and 15 month later, respectively.
  • CONCLUSION: Surgical excision of benign cardiac tumors is a safe and curative treatment, which is feasible using minimally invasive right thoracotomy approach and provides excellent results.
  • However, therapy of malignant cardiac tumors continues to have a poor prognosis despite individualization of approach.

  • OBJECTIVE: Meningiomas for the most part are slow-growing benign tumors, but complete removal can be difficult and recurrence is an issue.
  • The aim of this study was to re-evaluate tumors diagnosed as meningioma previously in our hospital, according to the latest World Health Organization classification.
  • We also examined the relationships among parameters such as brain invasion, histological grade and Ki-67 and p53 expression in these tumors.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Meningioma biopsy specimens numbering 60 (48 grade I, 11 grade II, and 1 grade III tumors) were examined immunohistochemically using monoclonal antibodies for Ki-67 (MIB-1) and p53 protein.
  • The MIB-1 labeling index (LI) for each tumor was calculated as a percentage based on the number of stained cells per total cells counted.
  • The mean MIB-1 LI values for the grade I and grade II tumors were 1.1% and 2.3%, respectively.

  • [Title] Granular cell tumor of the breast: a case report and review of literature.
  • A 22-year-old female patient presented with a breast mass lesion with a clinical suspicion of a fibroadenoma.
  • Histological evaluation revealed a rare benign neoplasm - granular cell tumor.Granular cell tumor is rare neoplasm that may arise in virtually any body site, and in 5% it occurs in the breast.
  • The histogenesis of this tumor is still rather controversial and currently the most acceptable theory is a Schwann cell origin.
  • The main histological feature is granular cytoplasm of the tumor cells.From a clinical point of view there is a similarity between granular cell tumor and mammary carcinoma on mammography and ultrasound.
  • Pathohistologically, sometimes, differential diagnostic difficulties exist concerning apocrine carcinoma, histiocytic lesions and metastatic neoplasms.

  • [Title] Expression of tumor-specific antigen MAGE, GAGE and BAGE in ovarian cancer tissues and cell lines.
  • BACKGROUND: To observe mRNA expression of tumor-specific antigen MAGE, BAGE and GAGE in epithelial ovarian cancer tissues and cell lines, to explore the relationship between gene expression and diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of ovarian cancer, and to evaluate the feasibility of their gene products as markers, and an immunotherapy target for ovarian cancer.
  • METHODS: mRNA expression of MAGE-1, MAGE-3, GAGE-1/2 and BAGE were determined by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) in 14 cases of normal ovarian tissue, 20 cases of ovarian benign tumor specimens, 41 cases of ovarian cancer specimens, and ovarian cancer cell lines SKOV3, A2780, and COC1.
  • In benign tumors, only the MAGE gene was expressed; the expression rate of this gene in benign tumors was 15% (3/20).
  • Positive expression of MAGE-1 and MAGE-3 was positively correlated with tumor differentiation and the clinical stage of the ovarian cancer.
  • CONCLUSION: Tumor-specific antigen MAGE, BAGE and GAGE may play a role in the occurrence and development of ovarian cancer.
  • These genes can be used as one of the important indicators for early diagnosis, efficacy evaluation and prognostic determination of ovarian cancer.

  • [Title] Tenosynovial giant cell tumors as accidental findings after episodes of distortion of the ankle: two case reports.
  • INTRODUCTION: Tenosynovial giant cell tumors are benign tumors of uncertain pathogenesis.
  • Due to a high recurrence rate of up to 50%, some authors call a giant cell tumor a semimalignant tumor.
  • To date, less than 10 cases of tenosynovial giant cell tumor of the ankle have been published in the international medical literature.
  • CASE PRESENTATION: In this case report, we present two patients with localized tumors that were detected accidentally after the occurrence of ankle sprains with persisting pain in the joint.
  • The tumors were resected by open marginal surgery and regular follow-up examinations were carried out.
  • CONCLUSIONS: We present an unusual occurrence of a tumor along with a possible follow-up strategy, which has not been previously discussed in the international literature.

  • BACKGROUND: Cardiac myxoma is a benign neoplasm and is not considered to carry a risk of malignant transformation.
  • We describe a case of a cardiac tumor comprising typical myxoma and atypical cellular parts.
  • METHODS AND RESULTS: A 72-year-old woman was found to have a tumor in the left atrial chamber after undergoing echocardiographic investigation and so she underwent tumor excision surgery.
  • The excised tumor was composed of two components with different features with a smooth transition from one type to the other.
  • The apex of the tumor showed a gelatinous and villous appearance on gross examination, and histological examination revealed that the tumor cells had small oval nuclei and eosinophilic cytoplasm and were arranged in cords and vasoformative structures in the myxoid matrix.
  • The base of the tumor appeared as a solid mass on gross examination with hypercellular proliferation of spindle-shaped tumor cells and intersecting fascicles observed histologically.
  • On immunohistochemistry, the tumor cells were found to be positive for alpha-smooth muscle actin, calretinin, and CD34, and this immunoreactivity was decreased at the tip.
  • CONCLUSIONS: We diagnosed this tumor as cardiac myxoma with an atypical hypercellular component suggesting a malignant change.

  • [Title] [Lipid peroxidation level in gastrointestinal tract tumors].
  • Oxygen free radicals and their reactive derivatives participate in formation of chronic inflammation states, which facilitate development of gastrointestinal tract tumors.
  • The aim of the study was the determination of lipid peroxidation level in gastrointestinal tract tumors (stomach, liver, colon, and colorectal cancer to liver metastases).
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: Materials for studies were obtained from 150 patients with gastrointestinal tract tumors: 10 with stomach cancer, 30 with malignant and benign liver cancers, 60 with primary colorectal cancer, and 50 with metachronous colorectal cancer liver metastases.
  • Tumor specimens, and normal adjacent tissues (6-7 cm from the edge of the tumor), which served as control tissue in studies, were collected from patients (with their consent) during surgery.
  • RESULTS: The study showed the highest concentration of TBARS in benign, and the lowest in malignant liver tumors.
  • Other types of gastrointestinal tumors studied, were characterized by similar levels of lipid peroxidation.
  • TBARS concentration in these tumors was approximately 2-fold higher than in malignant liver tumors and much lower than in benign tumors.
  • In all cancers of the digestive tract with the exception of malignant liver tumors increased level of TBARS was found, comparing with control tissue.
  • The level of lipid peroxidation in liver cirrhosis and malignant liver tumors was similar.
  • There were no significant differences in TBARS concentration in the tumors of particular sections of the intestine and normal colon.
  • The changes of lipid peroxidation level--a marker of oxidative stress in gastrointestinal tumors appear to be closely associated with their development stages (liver cirrhosis/malignant liver cancer; colorectal cancer/colorectal cancer liver metastases) and are likely to create such conditions, in which cancerous cells may proliferate, undergo gradual dedifferentiation and malignancy, and generate metastases.

  • INTRODUCTION: Chondroid syringoma is a rare skin tumor that presents as a slow growing, indolent lesion, that is more frequent in male adults and is usually benign.
  • It is treated surgically and its diagnosis is histological.
  • RESULTS: Most of the cases occurred as well-defined nodular lesions, whose presumptive clinical diagnosis was adnexal or cystic pathology.
  • DISCUSSION: The chondroid syringoma is usually a small-sized skin tumor, frequently on the head and neck.
  • The final treatment of these tumors is surgical.
  • As a general rule, it is a benign tumor.
  • Some authors have proposed the term of atypical mixed tumor of the skin for those chondroid syringomas with histological traits of malignancy but without evidence of metastasis.

  • [Title] Pediatric ovarian tumors--dilemmas in diagnosis and management.
  • BACKGROUND: Ovarian tumors are rare in the pediatric age group and thus diagnostic and treatment strategies are heterogeneous.
  • This study aims to evaluate ovarian tumors with a focus on age at presentation, imaging characteristics, diagnostic strategy, tumor presentation and management.
  • METHODS: Data was collected retrospectively from patients admitted between 1991 and 2008 for the evaluation and therapy of ovarian tumors.
  • RESULTS: Twenty-five patients were identified with neoplastic ovarian lesions (mean age 10.7 years).
  • Sixteen patients (64%) underwent surgery for benign and 9 (36%) for malignant tumors.
  • Benign tumors (n=16) had a mean diameter of 10.7 cm and mean age at presentation was 9.6 years compared to a diameter of 18.6 cm and 12.3 years in the malignant group (n=9).
  • Elevated tumor markers were observed in 3 (12.5%) benign tumors and in 7 (77.8%) malignant tumors.
  • In preoperative ultrasound investigation, cyst formation was identified in 4 benign tumors and solid tumor mass in 2 malignant tumors.
  • CONCLUSION: Cyst formation, small tumor size and younger age at presentation were characteristic of benign tumors.
  • Malignant tumors often presented with elevated tumor markers, a larger size and a solid consistency.
  • Diagnostic dilemmas remain for both tumor groups due to the different tumor types and the heterogeneity of presentation.

  • Benign fibrous histiocytoma is one of the most frequent benign neoplasms mainly composed of a mixture of fibroblastic and histiocytic cells, especially found in the skin (dermatofibroma), particularly in the limbs.
  • The diagnosis of cutaneous benign fibrous histiocytoma is generally easy; however, rare variants may be difficult to identify, and the diagnosis only confirmed after exhaustive histopathological examination.
  • We report a case of a 38-year-old woman with a painless swelling on the abdominal wall, which was totally excised and histopathologically diagnosed as subcutaneous atypical fibrous histiocytoma.
  • Prominent hyaline collagen bundles surrounded by tumor cells were observed, predominantly at the periphery of the lesion.
  • Definitive diagnosis, although especially difficult in our case, is established by characteristic histological and immunohistochemical criteria.

  • [Title] High prevalence of Human Herpes Virus 8 (HHV-8) in patients with Warthin's tumors of the salivary gland.
  • BACKGROUND: Warthin's tumor is a common benign neoplasm of the salivary gland.
  • Human Herpes Virus 8 (HHV-8) is the etiologic agent for all forms of Kaposi's sarcoma (KS), and HHV-8 DNA is present in saliva, suggesting that non-sexual transmission is associated with latent infection of the salivary gland.
  • OBJECTIVES: To provide insights into the HHV-8 cell tropism, the presence of HHV-8 was investigated in a series of Warthin's tumors of the salivary gland and corresponding adjacent normal tissue.
  • STUDY DESIGN: Forty-three patients with Warthin's tumors (cystadenolymphoma) were tested for the presence of HHV-8 DNA, and corresponding adjacent normal tissue samples were obtained from 15 patients.
  • RESULTS: HHV-8 DNA was detected in 19 out of 43 (44%) salivary gland tumor samples.
  • Among the 15 cases with paired samples, 9 were HHV-8-positive for both samples, 4 were HHV-8-negative for both samples while in two cases HHV-8 was detected only in the tumor specimens.
  • CONCLUSIONS: HHV-8 is frequently detected in adenoid salivary neoplasms, suggesting a significant role of the virus in the etiopathogenesis of the disease.
  • Larger studies are required to investigate the role of HHV-8 in the development or progression of Warthin's tumors.

  • The coincidence of an MMC and a neoplasm is rare, and only limited reports on the concurrence of a teratoma within an MMC have been published.
  • The postoperative histopathological assessments in 15 (4.5%) of these patients revealed evidence of a teratoma inside the MMC.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The special feature of a protruding fingerlike appendage or intraoperative detection of a cystic portion of an MMC without direct connection to the spinal canal can be possible signs of teratoma concurrent with an MMC.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • INTRODUCTION: Endoscopic resection of benign neoplasms, such as inverted papilloma, has been well described.
  • There are limited case reports of endoscopic resection of benign vascular tumors, including hemangiomas, or those with low-grade malignant potential, such as hemangiopericytomas.
  • Four tumors involved the skull base; 2 of these underwent preoperative embolization.
  • One patient had a CSF leak that occurred as the tumor was removed from the cribriform plate and that was successfully repaired intraoperatively.
  • The average size of the tumors was 5.8 cm x 2.7 cm with all tumors at least 2.5 cm in greatest dimension by computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging.
  • The largest tumor was 12 cm in greatest dimension.
  • An average of 8 intraoperative frozen section margins was taken around 5 tumors, with all margins of each tumor clear on final pathology.
  • CONCLUSION: Large vascular neoplasms of the sinonasal cavity, such as hemangiomas and hemangiopericytomas, can be safely removed using endoscopic techniques.

  • [Title] Tonsillar herniation and cervical syringomyelia in association with posterior fossa tumors in children: a case-based update.
  • BACKGROUND: Posterior fossa tumors most commonly occur in children.
  • The symptomatology is predominantly directed towards the tumor.
  • CASE REPORT: We describe a case of a pilocytic astrocytoma of the cerebellum in a 13-year-old girl who presented with clinical features of progressively worsening raised intracranial pressure and secondary tonsillar herniation and cervical syringomyelia.
  • Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging showed a large midline inhomogenously enhancing vermian tumor causing moderate obstructive hydrocephalus.
  • The tumor was resected through a suboccipital craniectomy.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The occurrence of tonsillar herniation and syringomyelia in association with a slow growing benign tumor like pilocytic astrocytoma of the cerebellum is uncommon.
  • Surgical extirpation of the tumor restores the normal cerebrospinal fluid circulation at the foramen magnum and produces an excellent outcome.

  • [Title] Lateral ventricle tumors: surgical strategies according to tumor origin and development--a series of 72 cases.
  • OBJECTIVE: Optimal surgical management in lateral ventricle tumors remains controversial.
  • We conducted a retrospective study of patients with these lesions treated with a surgical strategy on the basis of tumor origin: primary or secondary ventricular and associated transependymal development.
  • METHODS: A total of 72 patients underwent surgery for lateral ventricle tumors.
  • Sixty-five percent of tumors were benign and low-grade tumors.
  • Final morbidity correlated well with preoperative clinical condition and pathological diagnosis.
  • CONCLUSION: Lateral ventricle tumors can be treated best by careful selection of the approach according to tumor origin and development.
  • Overall, the transcallosal approach is preferred, but in patients with transependymal growth or large primary or secondary ventricular tumors, the transcortical is a better option.

  • [Title] Infant temperament predicts life span in female rats that develop spontaneous tumors.
  • At death, these males had various complex pathologies, precluding identification of specific hormonal mechanisms underlying adult disease progression and mortality.
  • To minimize the variance of disease processes at the end of life, we conducted a longitudinal study with female Sprague-Dawley rats prone to high rates of spontaneous mammary and pituitary tumors.
  • For females that developed either mammary or pituitary tumors, those that had been neophobic (least exploratory) as infants died approximately 6 months earlier than their neophilic (most exploratory) sisters.
  • In the case of mammary tumors, both benign and malignant, neophobic females developed palpable tumors earlier than neophilic females, whereas the interval between first palpation and death was the same for all females, indicating psychosocial regulation of early rather than later stages of the disease.
  • During puberty, when mammary tissue is proliferating and differentiating, neophobic females experienced more irregular cycles with prolonged "luteal" phases, suggesting a role for prolactin, prolonged progesterone and fewer estrogen surges during this sensitive period for mammary tumor risk.
  • Thus, we identified prolactin, estrogen, progesterone and possibly corticosterone dynamics as candidates for neuroendocrine mechanisms linking infant temperament with onset of adult neoplastic disease.

  • BACKGROUND: Recent evidence suggests that prostate stem cells in benign and tumor tissue express the cell surface marker CD133, but these cells have not been well characterized.
  • METHODS: We analyzed CD133-positive (CD133+) and -negative (CD133-) sub-populations of high-integrin expressing epithelial cells isolated from benign human prostate tissue and hormone-refractory prostate cancer (HRPC).
  • RESULTS: CD133+ cells freshly isolated from benign prostate tissue exhibited an expression profile characteristic of a putative stem/progenitor cell population, with transcripts involved in biological processes ranging from development and ion homeostasis to cell communication.
  • The profile of CD133- cells was consistent with that of a transit amplifying population, suggesting up-regulated proliferation and metabolism.
  • Comparison of benign populations to those from HRPC showed some similarities between CD133+ profiles but also revealed significant differences that provide a tumor-specific pattern, which included evidence of increased metabolic activity and active proliferation.
  • Subsequently, we demonstrated protein expression of a number of candidate genes in these cell populations and in benign tissue.
  • In a novel observation we also found expression of some of these markers in prostate tumors, including the oligodendrocyte lineage transcription factor OLIG1.

  • [Title] Increased (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose uptake in benign, nonphysiologic lesions found on whole-body positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT): accumulated data from four years of experience with PET/CT.
  • The use of (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography ((18)F-FDG-PET) in the field of oncology is rapidly evolving; however, (18)F-FDG is not tumor specific.
  • Aside from physiological uptake (18)F-FDG also may accumulate in benign processes.
  • Knowledge of these (18)F-FDG-avid nonmalignant lesions is essential for accurate PET interpretation in oncologic patients to avoid a false-positive interpretation.
  • Through the systematic review of the reports of PET/computed tomography (CT) studies performed in oncologic patients during a 6-month period, we found benign nonphysiological uptake of (18)F-FDG in more than 25% of studies.
  • A total of 73% of benign lesions were inflammatory in nature, with post-traumatic bone and soft-tissue abnormalities (including iatrogenic injury) and benign tumors accounting for the remainder.
  • The differentiation of benign from malignant uptake of (18)F-FDG on PET alone may be particularly challenging as a result of the low anatomical resolution of PET and paucity of anatomical landmarks.
  • Familiarity with (18)F-FDG-avid nonmalignant lesions also may extend the use of (18)F-FDG-PET imaging beyond the field of oncology.
  • We have tabulated our experience with benign entities associated with increased (18)F-FDG uptake on whole-body PET/CT from 12,000 whole-body (18)F-FDG-PET/CT studies performed during a 4-year period.

  • RESULTS: 86.7% of all the tumours (n = 407) were malignant.
  • Among the malignant tumours, the frequency of renal cell carcinomas was 91.1% (n = 371).
  • The authors observed 3 Bellini duct, 1 mucinous tubular and 3 non-classifiable carcinomas, with a combined incidence of 1.8%.
  • As far as benign tumours are concerned (13.2%, n = 62), oncocytomas (n = 37, 7.8% of all the tumours) affected mainly females, whereas angiomyolipomas (n = 21, 4.4% of all the tumours) occurred in females only.
  • In 13 oncocytoma cases, the tumours were initially diagnosed as malignant.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Adult malignant renal tumours affect mainly patients around the age of 60.

  • Periapical inflammation, cysts and benign tumours, bone malignancies, all of these conditions may show bone resorption on radiograph.
  • Features of the surrounding bone, margins of the lesion, and biological behaviour including tendency to infiltration and root resorption, may represent important criteria for distinguishing benign tumours from their malign counterpart, although the radiographic aspect of the lesion is not always predictive.
  • Therefore a critical differential diagnosis has to be reached to choose the best management.
  • Here, we report a case of giant cell tumour (GCT) whose radiological features by computed tomography (CT) suggested the presence of bone malignancy, whereas the evaluation of a routine OPT scan comforted us about the benign nature of the lesion.
  • A brief review of the literature on such a benign but locally aggressive neoplasm is also provided.

  • INTRODUCTION: Pleomorphic adenoma is the most common benign neoplasm of the salivary glands.
  • Extensive lipomatous involvement of the tumor is, however, a very rare finding.
  • CASE REPORT: Herein, a rare case of lipomatous pleomorphic adenoma arising in the parotid gland of a 14-year-old Japanese woman is presented.
  • Recognition of this rare subtype of pleomorphic adenoma is important for clinical diagnosis and management.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: The benign tumors of nasopharynx are least encountered tumors in otolaryngology, as nasopharynx is considered one of notorious anatomical site for the malignant tumors.
  • On CT scan, this tumor was quite big and extending to the parapharyngeal space.
  • The excision biopsy of tumor revealed it as pleomorphic adenoma.
  • We found only five published reports on this tumor arising from nasopharynx.
  • DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: Although, in this case report exact origin of the tumor could not be ascertained as it also appeared to be a parapharyngeal tumor but we kept the possibility of a nasopharyngeal tumor on the basis of clinical features.
  • It can be misdiagnosed as malignant epithelial tumor on histopathology.
  • A possibility of benign tumor should always be kept in nasopharyngeal growth with no evidence of metastasis, and histopathological diagnosis of growth should be available before any definitive treatment.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The intraductal tubular adenoma (ITA), pyloric gland type, of the pancreas is an uncommon benign tumor, akin to the pyloric gland type adenoma of the gallbladder.
  • Grossly, all tumors formed a localized polypoid mass protruding into the lumen of the dilated pancreatic duct.
  • Five of the six tumors were found within the main duct, and the other arose within the branch duct of the pancreas.
  • Microscopically, the tumors were composed of closely packed tubular glands resembling pyloric type glands.
  • Histochemically, the tumors largely showed neutral mucin with a lesser amount of acidic mucin made up mainly of sialomucin.
  • Endocrine cells were found in five tumors.
  • Immunohistochemically, all tumors were labeled with M-GGMC-1 and MUC6, whereas MUC1 and MUC2 stains were negative.
  • Pepsinogen II was positive in 5 tumors; thus, the results displayed a pattern of differentiation similar to those of ordinary gastric pyloric or metaplastic pyloric glands.
  • DPC4 expression was maintained in all tumors and p53-positive nuclei were hardly encountered.
  • All patients are alive with no evidence of disease 3 to 10.5 years after surgical resection.

  • RESULTS: The FNAC diagnostic failure (2); non-neoplastic lesions (12); benign neoplasm (82) and malignant neoplasm (17).
  • Cytologically, the distinction between cellular pleomorphic adenoma, adenoid cystic carcinoma and basal cell adenoma could be difficult due to their overlapping morphologic features.
  • The three inaccurately diagnosed cases of FNAC are, as follows: reactive lymphoid hyperplasia of lymph node mistaken as non-Hodgkin lymphoma, mucoepidermoid carcinoma diagnosed as "scanty atypical cells present" and primary lymphoepithelial carcinoma mistaken as benign lymphoepithelial lesion.
  • On the basis of FNAC, 97.4% (110 /113) were correctly depicted as benign (95/96; 99.0%) or malignant (15/17; 88.2%).
  • Furthermore, 90.3% (102 /113) (specificity = 91.9%; 102/111) were accurately diagnosed, including 91.7% (88/96) benign lesions (specificity = 92.6% ; 88/95) and 82.4% (14/17) malignant tumors (specificity = 87.5%; 14/16).
  • CONCLUSIONS: FNAC is reliable in distinguishing benign and malignant salivary gland lesions.
  • A specific cytologic diagnosis is often possible.
  • On the other hand, due to the pitfalls in cytologic diagnosis of certain salivary gland tumors, tissue biopsy for histologic examination may be necessary.

  • To ascertain whether Pdcd4 suppresses tumor development in vivo, we have generated transgenic mice that overexpress Pdcd4 in the epidermis (K14-Pdcd4).
  • Expression of a protein encoded by 5' unstructured mRNA showed no change.
  • These results extend to an in vivo model the observations that Pdcd4 inhibits both translation initiation and AP-1 activation while decreasing benign tumor development and malignant progression.

  • The prognosis is quite variable, because this benign tumor may grow, involute, or stop growing; therefore, resection is usually the treatment of choice.
  • In patients with tumors of the left atrium, percutaneous balloon mitral valvulotomy is generally contraindicated.
  • Herein, we present the case of a 73-year-old woman who was referred to our department in 1995 with severe mitral valve stenosis.
  • There were no signs of coronary artery disease.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging and transesophageal echocardiography confirmed the diagnosis.

  • Understanding the anatomy of the scapula and surrounding neurovascular structures is crucial in making a differential diagnosis and providing both nonoperative and surgical treatments.
  • Common causes of snapping scapula include bursitis, muscle abnormality, and bony or soft-tissue abnormalities.
  • Benign tumor conditions of the scapula can also predispose one to snapping scapula syndrome and should be thoroughly investigated during the course of treatment.

  • Hemangiomas are the most common benign tumor of infancy, yet its pathogenesis and the mechanisms governing proliferation and involution are not well understood.
  • Postnatally, it has been implicated in tumor angiogenesis in multiple malignancies.
  • Notch signaling triggers tumor angiogenesis at least in part to stimulation by VEGF, thus establishing that there is a cross talk between the VEGF and Notch pathways.
  • Given the presence of VEGF and its receptors in hemangiomas and known VEGF-Notch cross talk in tumor angiogenesis, the authors hypothesize that Notch signaling may contribute to hemangioma proliferation and involution.

  • In total, 220 RNA specimens, from laser capture microdissected paired benign and malignant prostatic epithelial cells of 110 CaP patients, were analyzed for PSGR expression by quantitative real-time PCR.
  • The differential expression of PSGR between the prostatic epithelial cells of malignant and benign glands was statistically significant (P<0.0001).
  • Comparison of PSGR expression between paired benign and tumor cells revealed prostate tumor cell-specific overexpression in 67.2% of tumor specimens (74 of 110), decreased expression in 20.9% of tumor specimens (23 of 110) and no difference of PSGR expression between tumor and normal cells in 11.8% of specimens (13 of 110).

  • [Title] Conditional expression of the mutant Ki-rasG12C allele results in formation of benign lung adenomas: development of a novel mouse lung tumor model.
  • Expression of Ki-ras(G12C) caused multiple, small lung tumors over a 12-month time period.
  • Although tumor multiplicity increased upon continued Ki-ras expression, most lung lesions were hyperplasias or well-differentiated adenomas.
  • Withdrawal of doxycycline for 1 month resulted in almost a complete absence of proliferative pulmonary lesions, suggesting tumor regression in the absence of Ki-ras expression.
  • Mutant Ki-ras(G12C) expression was sufficient for initial lung tumor transformation, required for maintenance of tumor phenotype, and induced transformation of lung epithelial cells by the activation of multiple effector pathways.
  • These results describe a novel mouse lung tumor model demonstrating benign tumor development in the absence of tumor progression, which will provide a new tool for understanding the early stages of lung tumor pathogenesis.

  • Several important cutaneous neoplasms present with basaloid cells in the dermis.
  • Desmoplastic trichoepithelioma (DTE), infiltrative/morpheaform basal cell carcinoma (BCC), and microcystic adnexal carcinoma (MAC) are tumors in this category that may be difficult to differentiate, especially when evaluating thin biopsy specimens.
  • An accurate diagnosis has important clinical implications.
  • While DTE is a benign neoplasm with indolent behavior, infiltrative/morpheaform BCC and MAC can be highly aggressive, leading to substantial local destruction and potential metastasis.
  • We present a patient with an unusual tumor demonstrating basaloid cells in the dermis and discuss the diagnostic approach for these lesions, emphasizing the potential role of cytokeratin 20 (CK20) in determining the need for Mohs micrographic surgery.

  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the clinical features and treatment of the surgical tumors associated with Castleman's disease.
  • METHODS: The clinical data of 20 patients with Castleman's disease, 6 males and 14 females, aged 39 (15-70), with the tumor size ranging from 2 cm x 3 cm to 10 cm x 9 cm, and with the tumor located in the mediastinal cavity (n = 6), retroperitoneal area (n = 2), abdominal cavity (n = 1), adrenal area (n = 1), neck and armpit (n = 2), and multi-centers (n = 2), were analyzed.
  • RESULTS: Nineteen of the 20 patients underwent surgical resection of the tumor or lymph node.
  • All were diagnosed as Castleman's disease by pathological examination.
  • Most of the tumor was benign.
  • CONCLUSION: Surgical resection of the tumor is the first choice for treatment of Castleman's disease.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Unilateral maxillary sinus opacity can be caused by many diseases, but an exact diagnosis is difficult to make.
  • RESULTS: The most frequent diagnoses were as follows: chronic rhinosinusitis (52.6%), fungus ball (29.3%), antrochoanal polyp (2.6%), benign tumor (10.4%), and malignancy (5.1%).
  • Fungus ball was the most common diagnosis (10/18, 55.6%) in the subgroup of patients with isolated maxillary sinus opacity without disease in the other sinuses.
  • Nasal discharge and foul-smelling breath were more common in inflammatory disease than in neoplastic disease.
  • Neoplastic disease was more likely to present as epistaxis; a polyp or mass revealed by nasal endoscopy; mass effect in the cheek, palate, or gingiva; and bony erosion on CT.
  • CONCLUSION: Although unilateral maxillary sinus opacity is usually inflammatory in origin, fungal sinusitis and neoplastic disorder are also likely.
  • A careful history-taking, a thorough head and neck examination including nasal endoscopy, and CT evaluation are all imperative for reaching a correct diagnosis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • CONTEXT: Pituitary adenomas are the most common lesions in the sellar region, but other pathologies need to be considered in the differential diagnosis.
  • OBJECTIVE: To assess the prevalence of unusual sellar masses in a large series of patients and identify clinicopathological factors that may aid the pre-operative diagnosis.
  • MEASUREMENTS: Final pathological diagnosis.
  • RESULTS: One hundred sixteen patients (45 men, 71 women; mean age (±SD): 45 ± 17 years) with nonadenomatous lesions were divided into four major aetiological groups: cystic lesions (CYS) (53%); benign neoplasms (BEN) (22%); malignancies (MAL) (16%) and inflammatory lesions (INF) (9%).
  • Twenty-five per cent of malignant lesions were metastases, and some of the MAL (e.g., fibrosarcoma, lung metastasis) had a radiographical appearance suggestive of a pituitary adenoma.
  • While they frequently present with the symptoms, hormone abnormalities and radiographical appearance typical of pituitary tumours, the possibility of a nonadenomatous lesion needs to be considered in the differential diagnosis.

  • [Title] Anatomical and histopathological profile of head and neck neoplasms in Persian pediatric and adolescent population.
  • BACKGROUND: Neoplasms of the head and neck region are relatively uncommon in childhood.
  • The present study aimed to describe and compare the anatomical and histopathological distribution of head and neck neoplasms in Persian pediatric and adolescent population.
  • METHODS: Patients who presented with primary head and neck tumors were included in this study.
  • Orbital and skin tumors and neoplasms with secondary (metastatic) involvement of the head and neck were excluded from the study.
  • Based on the data obtained from a tertiary referral hospital tumor registry and oncology department, a total of 152 benign and malignant neoplasms of the head and neck in patients aged 19 years or younger (99 boys), whom were reported to this institution between 2000 and 2007, were analyzed in this study.
  • There were 136 (89.5%) malignant tumors and 16 (10.5%) benign neoplasms.
  • Lymphomas [Non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (30%), Hodgkin's disease (25%)], carcinomas (20%), and sarcomas (10.5%) were the most frequent histopathological types.
  • CONCLUSION: The most frequent primary site, malignant histopathological type, and male-female ratio in our study were comparable with other reported series; however, the ratio of benign to malignant lesions is different from most studies.

  • INTRODUCTION: Tumors arising from the sheath of peripheral nerves, both intracranial and intraspinal, are uncommon and are sometimes of difficult clinical diagnosis, especially when they occur in unusual sites.
  • Histological malignancy of this neoplasm is rare.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: The clinical and pathological findings of 20 autopsy cases of intracranial and intraspinal peripheral nerve tumors are analyzed.
  • 14 cases were surgically treated and the causes of death were ischemic lesions due to the large size of the tumors.
  • The correct clinical diagnosis was made in 14 patients.
  • The importance of early detection on intracranial and intraspinal peripheral tumors is paramount, since the large size of these histologically benign neoplasms makes them biologically malignant.

  • OBJECTIVE: The clinical presentation, pathology, treatment, and outcome of a 43-year-old woman with a malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor arising from a benign schwannoma of the eighth cranial nerve are presented.
  • CLINICAL PRESENTATION: Initially, the tumor was debulked.
  • After finding malignant areas within the benign tumor, it was considered to be a malignant transformation of a previously benign tumor.
  • Postoperatively, the tumor bed was radiated for palliation.
  • CONCLUSION: Despite surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy, the patient died rapidly as a result of disseminated metastatic disease.

  • [Title] Invasive breast cancer: predicting disease recurrence by using high-spatial-resolution signal enhancement ratio imaging.
  • PURPOSE: To retrospectively evaluate high-spatial-resolution signal enhancement ratio (SER) imaging for the prediction of disease recurrence in patients with breast cancer who underwent preoperative magnetic resonance (MR) imaging.
  • Volume measurements were tabulated for SER values between set ranges; cutoff criteria were defined to predict disease recurrence after surgery.
  • RESULTS: Breast tumor volume calculated from the number of voxels with SER values above a threshold corresponding to the upper limit of mean redistribution rate constant in benign tumors (0.88 minutes(-1)) and the volume of cancerous breast tissue infiltrating into the parenchyma were important predictors of disease recurrence.
  • All three prechemotherapy parameters (total tumor volume, tumor volumes with high and low SER) and the postchemotherapy tumor volume with high SER were significantly different between the two groups.
  • The multivariate Cox proportional hazards regression showed that, of the three prechemotherapy covariates, only the low SER and high SER tumor volumes (P = .017 and .049, respectively) were significant and independent predictors of tumor recurrence.
  • Tumor volume with high SER was the only significant postchemotherapy covariate predictor (P = .038).
  • CONCLUSION: High-spatial-resolution SER imaging may improve prediction for patients at high risk for disease recurrence and death.

  • Diagnosis was confirmed by pathologic and histologic analysis.
  • Renal leiomyomas are very rare benign tumours that are nearly indistinguishable from leiomyosarcoma or renal cell carcinoma preoperatively.
  • This case represents the second largest such entity reported and demonstrates the limited ability of accurate diagnostic determination preoperatively, with pathologic examination and immune-histochemical staining postnephrectomy representing the only definitive means of diagnosis.
