Borderline Brenner tumors represent quite a rare entity of ovarian tumors (about 2%) that develop from the surface ovarian epithelium. They are formed from papillary structures made of fibrovascular conjunctive axes covered by a transition epithelium, similar to the urinary bladder epithelium. According to the WHO classification, Brenner tumors present the following forms: benign, borderline and malignant. The benign ones are the most frequent, representing about 95%, the borderline represent about 5%, and the malignant ones less than 1%...

The commonest cause of head and neck malignancy in pediatric patients is lymphoma. A particular case is the tonsillar lymphoma. Even though unilateral tonsillar enlargement represents an ominous sign for neoplasia, clinical manifestations vary and are non-specific. Therefore, a delayed diagnosis is performed which compromises optimal therapy and hinders the prognosis. We present the case of a 5-year-old boy who was initially diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea, without reported systemic complaints. Asymmetric tonsillar hypertrophy created the premises for performing a tonsillectomy to rule out malignancy...

Spindle cell lipoma located in the dermis is uncommon. The plexiform variant of this tumor is rare. In fact, only six cases of this variant have been described previously. We report herein a case of dermal plexiform spindle cell lipoma with prominent myxoid matrix. A 47-year-old male patient presented with a solitary, 2.2 cm-cutaneous mass in the right buttock region that had slowly increased in size for over one year. The dermal lesion was characterized by a mixture of mature adipocytes, spindle shaped cells and inconspicuous ropey collagen bundles in a mucinous background...

Bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) is the most common congenital abnormality of the heart. In this condition, instead of three cusps, the aortic valve has two cusps. Children with congenital heart diseases are at increased risk of developing oral diseases, such as: higher number of decayed teeth, developmental anomalies, periodontal disease, malocclusion, dental crowding, as well as susceptibility to develop infective endocarditis from bacteremia caused by chronic poor oral health. However, little information is available regarding oral manifestations and their management in patients with congenital heart defects, despite the importance of these diseases...

Calcinosis consists of abnormal calcium deposition in soft tissues, which appears often in patients with limited systemic sclerosis, being one of the criteria of CREST (calcinosis cutis, Raynaud phenomenon, esophageal dysfunction, sclerodactyly, and telangiectasia) syndrome. With a long evolution, the aim of the treatment is to control the symptoms and prevent complications. In this article, we present the challenging management of a profuse lesion of calcinosis in a patient with systemic sclerosis. We describe the case of a 52-year-old woman with systemic sclerosis and CREST syndrome who was admitted in our Department with multiple painful and disabling tumoral masses, situated in nearly all joints...

Extremely old, complete edentulous patients are very difficult to treat both because of their anatomical and psychological condition. Treatment challenges are increasing when this situation is associated with low socio-economic status, poor general health and unrealistic expectations. This article presents a prosthetic rehabilitation of a very old patient, presenting a serious bone atrophy associated with a maxillary flabby ridge, whose dentures accelerated the bone resorption because of their poor fitting, lack of retention and wrong occlusal contacts...

Mesenchymal hamartoma of the liver (MHL) is a benign and rare hepatic lesion, with an uncertain etiology and a potential for developing into an undifferentiated distant embryonal sarcoma after an incomplete resection. It mainly presents as progressive abdominal distension with normal blood works. Most cases are diagnosed in the first two years of life, with a higher frequency in boys and on the right liver. We report the case of a mesenchymal hamartoma of the left liver in an 18-month-old girl, with a rough evolution and a literature review...

Plasma cell leukemia is very rare condition characterized by malignant proliferation of plasma cells in blood and bone marrow, which is aggressive and has a short survival even with conventional treatment. This ominous entity may be primary, or develops secondarily during the course of multiple myeloma. A 53-year-old Brazilian woman with multiple myeloma is described with bone marrow evaluation revealing 25% plasma cells. The quantification of plasma cell infiltration in bone marrow aspirate and immunohistochemistry study revealed consistent features of myeloma and plasma cell leukemia, and lambda light chain expression...

Primary squamous cell carcinoma of the thyroid is a very rare thyroid malignancy (less than 1% of thyroid cancers) with unfavorable clinical evolution and median survival less than one year, due to highly local tumor invasiveness with airway obstruction, metastases and treatment complications. We present a 62-year-old female patient with a fixed, rapidly increasing 5 cm right thyroid nodule, generating compressive signs and significant weight loss, resembling anaplastic thyroid carcinoma. Thyroid hormones, antithyroid antibodies and calcitonin were normal...

Endometriosis is a gynecologic condition affecting mainly the pelvic organs. However, extrapelvic endometriosis has been reported in almost all parts of the body. Umbilical endometriosis, either primary or secondary, is uncommon and has a documented neoplastic risk. We present the case of a 46-year-old woman with a large umbilical hernia associating primary umbilical endometriosis discovered during surgery and confirmed later by pathological and immunohistochemical exams. The patient underwent omphalectomy and partial omentum resection, alongside with mesh abdominal wall repair...

Lichen sclerosus et atrophicus and limited systemic scleroderma (acrosclerosis) are inflammatory skin diseases that ultimately evolve into two distinct modes of atrophic scar formation, but which can easily be confused clinically. They are very rarely associated. The literature has reported cases in which lichen sclerosus was associated with various forms of scleroderma, but often with localized morphea. The characteristic histopathological picture of lichen sclerosus includes a thin epidermis, with orthohyperkeratosis and vascular degeneration in the basal layer, loss of elastic fibers, and band-like inflammatory infiltrate in the papillary dermis, while systemic sclerosis is characterized by excessive deposition of collagen in the dermis, accompanied by reduction in adnexal structures and their entrapment in collagen, and the presence of perivascular lymphocytic inflammatory infiltrate...

Splenosis is a very rare entity that often appears following a traumatic rupture of the spleen or after splenectomy and represents heterotopic transplantation of splenic tissue. The ovary is reported as an atypical and rare localization. We report a case of a middle-aged woman, which presented with a left adnexal mass. Transvaginal ultrasonography, computed tomography (CT) and high-field 3T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed the left adnexal mass. Laparoscopy was performed, and histological and immunohistochemical examination revealed that resected mass was splenic tissue...

Thyroid cancer is the most frequent endocrine neoplasia. The incidence of the disease has been increasing in the past few decades in many regions, especially where the population was subject to some forms of accidental exposure. Among all the histopathological forms, papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) is the most common histological subtype of malignant thyroid tumor, representing about 80-90% of all malignant thyroid tumors. Although it is generally accepted that tumor stroma plays an essential role in the development and metastasis of tumor cells, histopathological studies focused on tumor cells characteristics...

Although it is very difficult to establish a correlation between the behavior of tumor cells in vitro and in vivo tumors, in this study we tried to analyze some functions of the tumor cells isolated from head and neck tumor fragments, comparatively with the tumor cell cultures, hoping that the results could help the clinician to choose optimal treatment for head and neck cancer patients. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the expression of p53 protein, the apoptosis process and the cell cycle parameters in the cell cultures of head and neck carcinoma obtained from fragments of tumor excised from patients...

Tendinopathy covers a range of several tendon conditions, mostly caused by overuse but at least in Achilles tendon pathology, favored by obesity, diabetes, inflammatory and autoimmune conditions. Subclinical tendon pathology is difficult to diagnose, as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examinations are sometimes inconclusive and not cost-effective. Elastography is an ultrasound examination method that uses mechanical impulses to produce shear waves in the tissue of interest, then measures the tissue displacement and calculates the shear wave speed or the elastic modulus of the examined tissue...

Pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia is a benign reactivated epithelial lesion secondary to another pathology, whose incidence is difficult to establish. There still exist controversies regarding the origin and pathogenesis of these lesions. For this purpose, we performed an immuno-histochemical study upon 20 cases of oral pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia associated with inflammatory and neoplastic conditions, investigating a series of markers with a possible pathogenic potential in developing this type of lesions...
