We report the spontaneous occurrence of oral neoplasms in pickhandle barracuda Sphyraena jello Cuvier, 1829 from Parangipettai, on the southeast coast of India. A total of 11736 fish were examined, of which 43 were affected with oral tumours, with an overall prevalence of 0.37%. Gross and clinical symptoms included reddish to grayish-white distended tumourous growths on the gingiva, intra-oral bones and tongue. The tumours exhibited delayed eruption and intra- or extra-oral swelling, varied in consistency from extremely firm to fleshy and released mucinous material...

Myxoma is the most common primary cardiac tumor and is usually located in the left atrium. Clinical manifestation relies in large part on the size, location, and architecture of the tumor. There are many reports in the literature of cardiac myxomas causing syncope, embolism, even myocardial infarction. We present a rare case of a patient who underwent urgent surgical resection of a large left atrial myxoma mimicking mitral stenosis. The postoperative course of the patient was uncomplicated. One year after surgery, the patient is asymptomatic and disease-free...

We describe a 13-year-old boy with recurrence of an odontogenic myxoma of the mandible. We review the existing published literature on the lesion, emphasizing the similarities and differences among lesions in the differential diagnosis. Odontogenic myxoma is an uncommon benign tumor that mainly affects the mandible, with a peak incidence in the second to fourth decades of life and predilection for the female sex. Clinical, radiological, and histopathological features should be considered when making a diagnosis...

BACKGROUND: Calcified amorphous tumor of the heart is a rare, non-neoplastic cardiac mass characterized by nodular calcium in the background of amorphous degenerating fibrinous material. Clinical diagnosis of calcified amorphous tumor can be difficult, and current single imaging techniques do not specifically differentiate calcified amorphous tumor from other cardiac tumors such as calcified atrial myxoma, calcified thrombi, or vegetation. Complete surgical resection is the treatment of choice for both symptom improvement and prevention of embolization, as well as for pathological diagnosis...

Carney complex is a rare genetic disease characterised by a complex of myxomas, spotty pigmentation and endocrine overactivity. At diagnosis, about one-third of male patients presents with testicular tumours, namely large cell calcifying Sertoli cell tumours, which are often multicentric and/or bilateral and have a low malignant potential. Although radical orchiectomy is the gold standard for the treatment of testicular neoplasms, a conservative approach with partial orchiectomy or tumourectomy may be the best treatment option for these patients, allowing the preservation of endocrine function, fertility and body image...

Primary coronary sinus tumors are extremely rare. Herein, we present a case of a pregnant woman with a primary myxoma in the coronary sinus (CS), which was diagnosed by echocardiography and computed tomography. We reviewed the literature and found two other primary CS tumors. We summarized the gender, ages, symptoms, diagnostic methods, associated anomalies, treatments, histologic findings, and outcomes of the 3 cases. Dyspnea was a common symptom of all 3 patients. Diagnostic methods included echocardiography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and coronary angiography...

The purpose of this study was to further evaluate the role of myxoma virus (MYXV) as an oncolytic agent against experimental human gliomas in vitro, and analyze the effect of MYXV on malignant glioma cells at different incubation periods and infected at different multiplicities of infection. Neuroglioma cell lines U251 and A172 were cultured with various infective doses of myxoma virus at different time points (0-3 days) and cellular survival rates were evaluated using an MTT assay. Cell viability and cell death rates were assessed using Annexin V/propidium iodide and applying flow cytometry...

Primary cardiac tumors are a rare entity whose incidence in the general population ranges from 0.0017% to 0.28%. Myxomas represent nearly half of all primary benign cardiac tumors and they prevalently affect female patients. Embolic manifestation is rare with a reported incidence of 0.06%.We present the case of a 30-year-old male patient with acute anterolateral infarction caused by total occlusion of the left anterior descending artery as a consequence of a left atrial myxoma embolization. Urgent surgical resection of the mass didn't avoid early recurrence of atrial myxoma, whose second presentation was again myocardial infarction...

Myxoma is a rare cause of severe mitral stenosis. We describe a challenging case of severe mitral stenosis and reversible pulmonary hypertension produced by a giant left atrial myxoma. The greatest risk is a diagnostic delay due to focus on discarding a pulmonary etiology of dyspnea. Physical examination and early echocardiographic assessment are the keys to avoid overlooking this uncommon pathology.

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to analyze the clinical manifestation, course, evolution, image manifestation, and treatments of LGI1 limbic encephalitis (LE). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Studies confirmed that LE with the complex antibody of voltage-gated potassium channels is LGI1 LE. Since then, LE cases have been reported. In this study, 10 typical LE cases were searched in PubMed. These cases and one additional case, which we reported herein, were retrospectively analyzed...

Myxomas are the most common cardiac primary tumors; however, left ventricular myxomas are extremely rare. We describe a young female patient with a giant left ventricular myxoma causing partial obstruction of the left ventricular outflow tract, who underwent successful surgical resection. Real-time three-dimensional echocardiography yielded incremental value to two-dimensional echocardiography by allowing better assess of the true size, extent, attachment, and morphology of the tumor. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc...

The case presented is a 25-year-old male with a malignant neuroectodermal tumour on the left chest wall (Askin tumour), treated with surgery after neoadyuvant chemotherapy and followed by consolidation chemotherapy. After 9 years of disease free survival, the patient developed an acute pulmonary embolism. The echocardiogram, thoracic CT, and cardiac MRI scans revealed a mass in the right atrium. Recurrence of an Askin tumour versus an atrium myxoma was suspected. (18)F-FDG PET/CT showed an intense hypermetabolic right atrium mass with extension to the right ventricle highly suggestive of malignancy...

Cardiac myxoma (CM) is a prevalent primary cardiac tumor. miR-217 plays a vital role in tumorigenesis of various cancers, however, its role and underlying molecular mechanism in human CM remain poorly understood. Here, we reported that the expression of miR-217 was downregulated in CM tissues and inversely correlated with the expression of Interleukin-6 (IL-6) mRNA. Gain-of-function analysis indicated that overexpression of miR-217 inhibited the proliferation and promoted the apoptosis of the primary CM cells...

INTRODUCTION: Cardiac myxoma is a benign neoplasm representing the most common primary cardiac tumor in adults, however it is unusual in neonates. It is represented by an endocardial mass that occupies the cardiac chamber. Although the majority of myxomas are attached to the fossa ovalis of the interatrial septum, they also attach to the walls of the cardiac chambers and to valve leaflets surfaces. Approximately 75% of myxomas are found in the left atrium, 20% are located in the right atrium, and rarely in the ventricles...
