Pigmentary mosaicism is a term used to encompass all of these different types of pigmentary patterns. Among these mosaic patterns, there have been only a few reports of the phylloid presentation in the literature. On the other hand, autoimmune disorders can be associated with neurocutaneous markers and syndromes. A fifteen-year-old girl was presented for chronic diarrhea and abdominal pain. Her physical examination had determined multiple hypopigmented patches. Finally, she was diagnosed phylloid hypomelanosis together with partial trisomy 13 accompanying celiac disease and autoimmune thyroiditis...

BACKGROUND: Phylloides tumors are rare breast neoplasms with a variable clinical course depending on the tumor category. Along with histologic features, the role of immunohistochemical staining has been studied in predicting their behavior. OBJECTIVES: Our aim was to evaluate the role of CD 10 immunohistochemical staining in predicting survival, recurrence and metastasis in phylloides tumor. We also evaluated correlations of other clinicopathological features with overall and disease-free survival...

The categorization of congenital hypo- or hyperpigmented skin lesions following a segmental pattern has been a long-lasting matter of debate and have been reported under various and often incorrect terms. To reassess published hypomelanotic and hypermelanotic lesions that did not follow Blaschko lines nor a phylloid pattern of mosaicism, we carried out an extensive and critical review of the worldwide literature. Seventy-four retrieved cases consisted of lateralized hypomelanotic lesions arranged in a flag-like pattern or appearing as large patches of grossly oval or angulated shape and sharp, serrated margins...

BACKGROUND: Fibroadenomas are benign breast tumors; however, more aggressive lesions may mimic or arise within fibroadenomas. We sought to define criteria identifying patients who should undergo surgical excision. METHODS: Patients with a preoperative diagnosis of fibroadenoma, who underwent surgical excision between 2002 and 2011, were retrospectively reviewed. Patients with final pathologic diagnosis of fibroadenoma were compared with those with non-fibroadenoma pathology...

A biphasic tumor with features of benign ductal elements and a malignant stromal component that lacks the architecture of a phylloides tumor represents a diagnostic challenge. A 35-year-old woman presented with a painful mass located in the upper inner quadrant of the right breast. A biopsy revealed histologically that the tumor had a multinodular architecture with malignant spindle cells forming cuffs around multiple open benign ducts. No leaf-like architecture was present. In addition, liposarcomatous differentiation was seen in focal areas...

A 6-year-old girl presented for evaluation of skin discoloration. Examination revealed oval and oblong hypopigmented macules on her trunk and extremities. Cytogenetic studies and immunohistochemistry of biopsies from normally pigmented and hypopigmented skin revealed mosaicism for partial tetrasomy for 13q with low melanocyte levels in lesional skin. The patient was diagnosed with phylloid hypomelanosis (PH), a distinct clinical entity linked to abnormalities in chromosome 13. This article reviews the literature regarding PH and supports the notion that mosaicism of the melanocyte region of chromosome 13q is responsible for PH...

Trisomy 13, or Patau syndrome, is a chromosomal disorder that can occur in complete, partial, or mosaic forms. Mosaicism is observed in 6% of individuals with trisomy 13 and, in contrast to the complete form, has wide phenotypic variability, longer survival, and in some patients an unusual skin pigmentary pattern similar to phylloid hypomelanosis. We describe here a 12-year-old girl with trisomy 13 mosaicism (mos 47,XX,+13[9]/46,XX[16]) who had three major malformations, an unusual skin pigmentary pattern, and prolonged survival...

X-ray phase-contrast imaging has received growing interest in recent years due to its high capability in visualizing soft tissue. Breast imaging became the focus of particular attention as it is considered the most promising candidate for a first clinical application of this contrast modality. In this study, we investigate quantitative breast tissue characterization using grating-based phase-contrast computed tomography (CT) at conventional polychromatic x-ray sources. Different breast specimens have been scanned at a laboratory phase-contrast imaging setup and were correlated to histopathology...

A 52-year-old otherwise healthy woman presented with a solitary firm mass in the right breast. Histopathological evaluation of the 1.5-cm mass showed a mammary myofibroblastoma of the conventional spindle-cell type. High-power examination of hematoxylin-eosin-stained sections showed round, eosinophilic, intracytoplasmic, as well as extracellular, hyaline globules. These 5- to 20-µm globules appeared gray with a pinkish rim on Masson's trichrome stain. Immunohistochemically, the hyaline globules were strongly reactive with smooth muscle myosin heavy chain, desmin, and caldesmon...

Leucine-(U)-C(14) applied to the midrib of a young phylloid of Delesseria sanguinea moves basipetally and acropetally and eventually appears in other phylloids of the same plant. The highest velocity of transport calculated was 63 cm/h. The pathway of movement seems to be the veins of the phylloids and the central core of the cauloid. Similar results had been obtained with Cystoclonium purpureum. Both algae belong to the Florideae with axial cells. Observations with the light microscope of veins of Delesseria revealed that the proposed conducting elements (up to 540 μm long) are interconnected by synapses having 1 to 4 "pit fields", which occur as very thin parts of the wall...
