  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Castleman disease (CD) is a rare benign disorder characterised by hyperplasia of lymphoid tissue that may develop at a single site or throughout the body.
  • The etiology of this disorder is unclear, although the histopathological presentation can be differentiated into a hyaline vascular variant, a plasma cell variant and a mixed variant.
  • RESULTS: This report, describes the case of a 67-year-old woman with unicentric Castleman disease located in the right lower abdomen.
  • The patient had symptoms of fatigue, dyspnoea and pain in the right lower abdomen.
  • Computed tomography (CT)- examination revealed a tumour, which had grown to form a close relationship with the common iliac vessels and the sacral bone.
  • A Laparotomy procedure revealed that the tumour was an irresectable mass.
  • Neo-adjuvant radiotherapy (40 Gy) was administered in order to downsize the tumour.
  • Six weeks later a new CT-scan revealed a major reduction of the tumour, which enabled a successful radical resection of the tumour to be performed.
  • Histopathological analysis of the tumour showed the hyaline vascular type of CD.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Data was recorded regarding clinical presentation, patient's age, size of tumour, bilaterality, histopathology, staging if tumour was malignant and sites of extra ovarian involvement.
  • Clinical presentation in the majority was mass abdomen and abdominal distension.
  • Histopathology was benign in 11 cases and malignant in 4.
  • In 2 cyst wall biopsy and one patient where entire cyst was removed histopathology revealed benign serous cyst adenoma/luteal cyst (26%).
  • There were 5 cases of dermoid cysts (33.3%), one patient had bilateral dermoids, one malignant and one benign.
  • Early correct diagnosis could be reached by careful physical examination, imaging and tumour markers Surgery should as much as is safely possible be fertility preserving.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the frequency of urological and non-urological abnormalities detected on routine renal and abdominal ultrasonography in patients undergoing surgery for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and to see if they affected the intended decision for prostate surgery.
  • Urological conditions detected included uni/bilateral hydronephrosis (34 pts), vesical stones (34 pts), renal cysts (15 pts), renal stones (6 pts), small shrunken kidneys (2 pts), renal tumour (1 pt) and bladder carcinoma (1 pt).
  • Most patients had benign conditions but three of these patients had potentially life threatening conditions (renal, bladder and hepatic carcinoma) detected by sonography that were unrelated to the prostate.
  • However, in only one patient (0.4%) with bladder carcinoma, surgery for prostate was postponed and bladder tumour was dealt with prior to transurethral resection of prostate (TURP).

  • RESULTS: Patients typically presented with abnormal uterine bleeding, pain in the lower abdomen, enlargement of the uterus, a mass in the uterine cavity and/or a cervical neoplasm.
  • Microscopically, the glands were lined by benign or atypical glandular epithelium, together with sarcomatous stromal cells which showed characteristic structures of 'periglandular cuff' of increased cellularity and 'intraglandular polypoid projections'.

  • Diffusion-weighted (Dw) imaging has for a number of years been a diagnostic tool in the field of neuroradiology, yet only since the end of the 1990s, with the introduction of echoplanar imaging (EPI) and the use of sequences capable of performing diffusion studies during a single breath hold, has it found diagnostic applications at the level of the abdomen.
  • The inherent sensitivity to motion and the magnetic susceptibility of Dw sequences nonetheless still create problems in the study of the abdomen due to artefacts caused by the heartbeat and intestinal peristalsis, as well as the presence of various parenchymal-gas interfaces.
  • With regard to the latter, although there are differences between benign forms [focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH), adenoma] and malignant forms [metastasis, hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC)] in their apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) in the average values for histological type, there is a significant overlap in values when lesions are assessed individually, with the consequent problem of their correct identification.
  • Greater agreement has been found regarding sensitivity of the technique in assessing response of these tumours to chemotherapy: tumour necrosis is thought to increase ADC whereas the persistence of vital neoplastic tissue tends to lower it.

  • A computed tomography scan was performed on the thorax and abdomen, and lesions were observed that were compatible with metastasis in the right kidney and left lung.
  • Urologist should pay attention to cutaneous lesion appearing in these patients as in many times they look like benign lesion.

  • [Title] Exophytic benign mixed epithelial stromal tumour of the kidney: case report of a rare tumour entity.
  • BACKGROUND: Mixed epithelial and stromal tumour (MEST) represents a recently described benign composite neoplasm of the kidney, which predominantly affects perimenopausal females.
  • Most tumours are benign, although rare malignant cases have been observed.
  • A CT scan of the abdomen showed a 30-mm-in-diameter uniform mass adjacent to the pelvis of the left kidney.
  • Surgical exploration showed a tumour arising from the lower anterior hilus of the left kidney.
  • The tumour could be excised by preserving the kidney.
  • By intraoperative frozen section the tumour showed characteristic features of MEST with epithelial-covered cysts embedded in an "ovarian-like" stroma.
  • Additional immunohistochemistry investigations showed expression for hormone receptors by the stromal component of the tumour.
  • Commonly, the tumour arises from the renal parenchyma or pelvis.
  • The tumour is composed of an admixture of cystic and sometimes more solid areas.
  • CONCLUSION: MEST represents a distinctive benign tumour entity of the kidney, which affects perimenopausal woman.
  • The tumour should be distinguished from other cystic renal neoplasms.
  • By imaging studies it is difficult to distinguish between a benign or malignant nature of the tumour.

  • Inflammatory fibroid polyps are rare benign lesions of uncertain origin, that may occur in many different locations in the gastrointestinal tract, the gastric antrum being the most common site, followed by the small bowel.
  • In case of an intestinal inflammatory fibroid polyp causing acute abdomen, the treatment is surgical.
  • A 62-year-old male patient presenting with acute abdomen underwent an exploratory laparotomy.
  • At surgery an ileal tumour 15 cm from the ileocecal valve causing ileoileal intussusception was found.
  • Even if inflammatory fibroid polyps are benign lesions, surgical treatment is the only solution when they present with intestinal intussusception.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • To the best of our knowledge, there are only 13 previous cases of benign mucinous cystadenoma (MCA) of the ovary in perimenarchal girls reported in the literature.
  • We present six cases of this rare tumour.
  • CT demonstrated an enormous mass occupying almost the entire abdomen.
  • Laparotomy revealed a tumour arising from the left ovary in five patients and from the right ovary in one.
  • Several litres of fluid were aspirated in order to deliver the tumour from the abdomen.
  • Histology revealed benign MCA of the ovary in all cases.
  • Although this tumour is rare, this diagnosis should be considered in 11 to 15-year-old girls presenting with a very large abdominal mass.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Laparoscopic surgery for presumed benign ovarian tumor during pregnancy.
  • The procedures include resection of the tumor (enucleation), removal of an ovary or ovaries (oophorectomy), or surgical excision of the fallopian tube and ovary (salpingo-oophorectomy).
  • However, conventional laparoscopic surgery techniques required the infusion of gas carbon dioxide in the peritoneum to distend the abdomen and displace the bowel upward to create the room for surgical manipulation.
  • OBJECTIVES: To compare the effects of using laparoscopic surgery for benign ovarian tumor during pregnancy on maternal and fetal health and the use of healthcare resources.
  • SELECTION CRITERIA: Randomized controlled trials with reported data that compared outcomes of laparoscopic surgery for benign ovarian tumor in pregnancy to conventional laparotomy technique.
  • AUTHORS' CONCLUSIONS: The practice of laparoscopic surgery for benign ovarian tumour during pregnancy is associated with benefits and harms.
  • The available case series studies of laparoscopic surgery for benign ovarian tumour during pregnancy provide limited insight into the potential benefits and harms associated with this new surgical technique in pregnancy.
  • Randomized controlled trials are required to provide the most reliable evidence regarding the benefits and harms of laparoscopic surgery for benign ovarian tumour during pregnancy.

  • 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.

  • Several growth factors, including basic fibroblast growth factor, transforming growth factors and vascular endothelial growth factor, play a role in tumour angiogenesis.
  • Essential to the initiation of a cellular response to GH, the presence of receptors for this hormone may predict the adaptation of tumour cells resulting from GH exposure.
  • A total of 64 benign and malignant vascular tumours were obtained from different human organ sites, including the chest wall, skin, axillary contents, duodenum, female breast, abdomen, stomach, colon, lymph node, bladder, body flank and neck regions.
  • To delineate tumour cell growth, immunohistochemical analysis of cycling nuclear protein and of proliferating cell nuclear antigen, using Ki-67 and PCNA polyclonal antibodies respectively, was used to demonstrate proliferative indexes.
  • The presence of GHR in endothelial cells of vascular neoplasm indicates that they are target cells and GH is of importance in the proliferation of vascular tumour angiogenesis.
  • The results support the hypothesis that GH is involved in the paracrine-autocrine mechanism, acting locally in regulating vascular tumour growth and will be useful for site-specific studies of the evolution of vascular cancers.
  • The use of anti-GHR antibodies to block tumour progression is an intriguing possibility.

  • This was confirmed on ultrasound to be a multiseptated cystic mass with a solid element, arising from the right side of the abdomen.
  • The mass was suspected of malignancy but all blood tests and tumour markers were normal.
  • CONCLUSION: Imaging appears to be unreliable in differentiating benign cysts from malignant renal tumours, raising a diagnostic dilemma where surgery seems the only way to reliably establish aetiology of the mass.

  • DT are rare benign tumours that do not metastasise but tend to invade locally.
  • In contrast to the general population, DT in patients with FAP are more common, show a different pattern of tumour sites and cause considerable morbidity and mortality.
  • Characteristic symptoms are abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting but DT may also present as acute abdomen.
  • CT scan determines localisation and extension of the tumour.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • PURPOSE: The widespread use of high-resolution cross-sectional imaging such as computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for the investigation of the abdomen is associated with an increasing detection of incidental adrenal masses.
  • We evaluated the ability of (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography to distinguish benign from malignant adrenal masses when CT or MRI results had been inconclusive.
  • The final diagnosis was 12 malignant, 17 benign tumours, and 12 tumours classified as benign on follow-up.
  • The visual interpretation was more accurate than SUVmax alone, tumour diameter or unenhanced density, with a sensitivity of 100% (12/12), a specificity of 86% (25/29) and a negative predictive value of 100% (25/25).
  • The use of 1.8 as the threshold for tumour/liver SUVmax ratio, retrospectively established, demonstrated 100% sensitivity and specificity.
  • Thus, a negative PET may predict a benign tumour that would potentially prevent the need for surgery of adrenal tumours with inconclusive conventional imaging.

  • The patient was admitted with a benign gastric outlet obstruction, chronic cholecystitis and radiological suspicion of a mass in the gallbladder which was not visualised on diagnostic laparoscopy.
  • Complementary transgastric peritoneoscopy was performed to gain deeper penetration of the tumour with the flexible tip of the gastroscope.
  • During transgastric peritoneoscopy, the gallbladder and structures in the upper and left hemi-abdomen appeared retrograde due to the unusual location of the gastrotomy.
  • The right hemi-abdomen and pelvis were easily examined with a "straight shaft" approach.

  • [Title] Gigantic recurrent abdominal desmoid tumour: a case report.
  • Deeply seated fibromatosis or desmoid tumour (DT) is a rare entity characterized by benign proliferation of fibroblasts.
  • Although non-malignant, this tumour can be life-threatening due to its invasive property and high recurrence rate.
  • We report a unique case of a huge recurrent abdominal DT (36 cm in diameter, 25 kg in weight) that caused pressure necrosis and sloughing of the overlying anterior abdominal wall, and produced a large fungating mass protruding outside the abdomen.
  • Although preoperative neoadjuvant therapies were all ineffective, radical surgical removal of the tumour was successful.

  • Carcinoids of the appendix represent a separate class of tumours with characteristics that vary between benign (adenomas) and malignant (carcinomas) neoplasias.
  • Among the gastrointestinals, tumour of the small intestine is the one with the highest incidence with 28.5%, followed by the appendix with 4.77%, the rectum with 13.6% and the stomach with 4.6%.
  • The first case is that of a female patient in whom the primary tumour was only discovered after liver metastasis was documented.
  • The second case regards a girl who, at admission, presented a picture of acute abdomen with the symptomatological characteristics of acute appendicitis.
  • Treatment with somatostatin, on the other hand, proved effective in controlling tumour secretion, so attenuating the inconveniences of carcinoid syndrome.
