The plexiform variant of spindle cell lipoma is very uncommon. In fact, as far as we are aware only seven cases have been previously reported. We describe herein the case of a 49-year-old man with a smooth nodule of the mucosa of the lower lip that was gradually increasing. Surgical excision of the lesion was done and the study revealed the histological and immunohistochemical features of a plexiform spindle cell lipoma (PSCL). Peculiar to this case was the location in the lip, the presence of abundant S100-positive dendritic cells, and scarce mature lipogenic cells...

Empty sella means the absence of the pituitary gland on cranial computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging. Empty sella syndrome is the pathological variant of the imaging-described empty sella. We present the case of a male Caucasian child, aged four years and two months, for short stature and diagnosed by imaging procedures as empty sella. The cause of short stature was isolated growth hormone (GH) deficiency. Associated he presented left hand postaxial polydactyly. In connection with this particular case, we propose a review of current knowledge in empty sella syndrome...

The invasive conjunctival squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the eyeball is a malignant tumor that invades only the conjunctiva and rarely the eyeball and the tissue of the orbit. We presented the clinical case of a 91-year-old patient, hospitalized at the 2nd Ophthalmology Clinic of the "Prof. Dr. Nicolae Oblu" Emergency Clinical Hospital of Iasi, Romania, due to a solid tumor mass of approximately 1×2 cm, which was noticed under the bulbar conjunctiva of the right eye in the nasal sector. The magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examination showed an adherent tumor of the right eye sclera, presenting invasion into the tissue of the orbit...

Solitary extranevraxial plasmacytoma (SEP), as a clinical entity without signs of systemic myelomatosis, is extremely rare; it is difficult to find literature on the issue of patient management and proper course of action in the presence of associated pathology. The authors present a rare case of plasmacytoma of the skull vault associated with severe cardiac pathology, which made surgery extremely difficult and possible only through temporization of the interventions, as presented. We discuss our findings and opportunities for treatment in this case, which seemed unapproachable at presentation, in connection with the associated cardiac pathology...

According to their phenotypic features, the hereditary dentin defects in humans are categorized in two major classes: dentinogenesis imperfecta and dentin dysplasia. At its turn, the dentin dysplasia is subdivided in dentin dysplasia type I and dentin dysplasia type II, a milder clinical manifestation of the condition. Here we report the clinical and radiographic findings of dentin dysplasia type II in two members of a family, a young adult female and her mother. Except a mild shade change of the incisal margins in upper central incisors and left upper canine of the daughter no abnormal occlusal wear or crown shape change of the teeth were disclosed in both patients...

The authors describe a case of a 61-year-old female patient, which presented on multidetector computed tomographic (MDCT) angiography a gastrosplenic trunk (GST) and common hepatic artery (CHA) arose independently from abdominal aorta (AA). The GST arose from the anterior wall of the AA, at the level of upper edge of the L1 vertebral body. The left gastric artery (LGA) arose from the superior wall of the GST. The splenic artery (SA) continuous the path of GST. The CHA arose from the anterior wall of the AA, at the level of upper one third of the L1 vertebral body, at 15...

The risk of developing basal cell carcinoma (BCC) during lifetime varies between 29-55%, while for squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) varies between 7-11%. Between them, considered to be a BCC, there is a particular histological type, named metatypical basal cell carcinoma (MTC) or basosquamous cell carcinoma (BSCC). In this paper, we presented a rare case of metatypical carcinoma of the forehead with an interesting history of unexpected recurrences, underlining the clinical, therapeutic and histological essential aspects that may come in use to other clinicians in managing this type of cancer...

Melanomas can exhibit a wide range of unusual morphologies due to the neural crest origin of melanocytes. Several authors have documented variations in size and shape of cells, cytoplasmic features and inclusions, nuclear features and cell architecture. Metastatic melanoma with rhabdomyoblastic differentiation is an extremely rare condition with poor prognosis. Few studies concerning rhabdoid or rhabdomyoblastic differentiation in melanoma are currently available and the current report highlights some of the most important immunohistochemical features of this rare entity...

Cardiac tumors are exceptional cardiac conditions, since they have a minimal occurrence, according to statistics. The cardiac myxoma cases are the most dominant for the representative examples for these clinical situations. Those tumors being benign, the patients enjoy a reasonable life expectancy provided they receive an early diagnosis. In the absence of potential complications, the symptoms can vary very much and they may often be non-specific, a fact which makes it more difficult to establish a proper diagnosis and to quickly tailor the optimal therapeutic solutions...

Resistant hypertension is defined by the inability to maintain within normal limits the blood pressure values of an individual, while he is under treatment with maximal tolerated doses of three antihypertensive agents. One of the most common types of resistant hypertension is renovascular hypertension (RVH), which is caused by the narrowing of the renal arteries, in the context of existing atherosclerotic plaques at that level. We are presenting the case of a hypertensive 56-year-old man admitted in the Clinic of Cardiology for a sudden rise of his blood pressure values, despite undergoing the scheduled treatment...

Conjunctival melanocytic lesions are very diverse pigmented tumors that include benign, premalignant and malignant tumors. The aim of this article is to highlight the clinical and histopathological aspects of conjunctival melanocytic tumors at children. This study is a retrospective case series study of three patients selected from fifteen cases with melanocytic conjunctival tumors who were operated in the Department of Ophthalmology, "St. Spiridon" Emergency Hospital, Iasi, Romania. A systematic review of the literature was undertaken, using an electronic search of PubMed/MEDLINE, Google Scholar and ISI Web of Knowledge, to identify original English or French articles and reviews on this subject...

Primary duodenal cancer is a rare entity accounting for only 0.3% of all gastrointestinal cancers. Histopathologically, most duodenal cancers are mucin-producing adenocarcinomas, 34% being poorly differentiated. Signet-ring cell (SRC) carcinoma is extremely uncommon in the duodenum. Herein, we report a rare case of SRC carcinoma associated with poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma of the non-ampullary duodenum in a 74-year-old woman. The patient was admitted to the hospital for persistent epigastric pain, significant weight loss and hypochromic microcytic anemia...

Conventional schwannoma represents a benign peripheral nerve sheath tumor derived from Schwann cells, which usually arises in the fourth or fifth decade of life, in the subcutaneous tissue of the distal extremities, or in the head and neck region of adult patients, with no gender predilection. In addition to the classic type, at least 11 different histopathological subtypes have been described and unawareness of these uncommon histopathological entities may lead to diagnostic pitfalls and risk of mistreatment...

Cholangiocarcinoma is an extremely rare and highly aggressive primary malignancy of the biliary tract. The current report illustrates a rare case of distal common bile duct adenocarcinoma encountered in a 65-year-old male patient who was thoroughly investigated after presenting with a two weeks history of pain in the right hypochondrium, jaundice and unintentional weight loss (6 kg in two weeks). The medical team opted for a pancreaticoduodenectomy (Whipple procedure) managing to obtain negative resection margins of the tumor with a favorable immediate postoperative evolution...

Digital neural loops are present in the palms of most individuals. They can arise within the common palmar digital nerves (CPDNs) or proper palmar digital nerves (PPDNs). Typically, common palmar digital arteries (CPDAs) pass through digital neural loops, however there are reports of loops forming around the superficial palmar arch or proper palmar digital arteries (PPDAs). We describe an unusual digital neural loop that involved both a CPDN and a PPDN. To our knowledge, this is the first documented case of a digital neural loop of this type and therefore anatomists and surgeons may benefit from an awareness of its existence...

PURPOSE: The face is an unfortunate location for any type of tumor - malignant or not - with significant esthetic and functional outcomes. To reconstruct a facial defect may seem simple, but can be rather complicated. The aim of this study is to analyze and discuss our results in order to conclude with specific surgical strategies correlated with the morphopathological results. The most important objective for us is to offer the highest level of expertise to our patients and to prove that the symbiosis between the surgical treatment and the work of the Department of Morphopathology is essential in order to maximize the quality of medical care provided for our patients...

The current limits of the endodontic disinfection strategies are not only a result of bacterial biofilm growth mode inside the root canals, they are equally due to the anatomical complexity of the root canal system, of its structure, of the dentin composition and of the factors associated with chemical disinfectants. One of the major problems is the fact that a great part of the endodontic anatomy remains uninstrumented after conventional treatment and even the accessible parts of the root canals are covered in smear layer, which results as a by-product of the instrumentation and acts as a barrier for irrigants, medication and even influencing the quality of the endodontic filling...
