BACKGROUND: Diffuse intracranial aneurysmal vasculopathy is a rare condition, previously described in patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. IgG4 related disease (IgG4-RD) is a recognized inflammatory disease of systemic organs, leading to fibrosis of connective tissues. It has also been linked to inflammatory dilating aortic aneurysms, coronary vascular disease, hypophysitis, orbital pseudotumor and pachymeningitis. It has not yet been described as a cause of diffuse intracranial dilating vasculopathy...

INTRODUCTION: Sclerosing angiomatoid nodular transformation (SANT) of spleen is a new entity defined as a benign pathologic lesion. Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) shows weak accumulation, thereby ruling out the malignancy in preoperative diagnosis is difficult. Herein, we reported a case of shrinking SANT with increased FDG accumulation during a 5-year follow-up period, which was treated by laparoscopic splenectomy. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 64-year-old female had been referred to our hospital for the evaluation of a splenic tumor...

Immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related systemic disease (IgG4-RSD) is a new systemic entity associated with autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP). Other organ involvements take the form of sclerosing cholangitis, sclerosing cholecystitis, sclerosing sialadenitis, retroperitoneal fibrosis, and interstitial nephritis. Recently, lung diseases related to IgG4 have been described to occur with or without other organ involvement. These diseases include interstitial lung disease (ILD), pulmonary inflammatory pseudotumor, and lymphomatoid granulomatosis...

INTRODUCTION: Inflammatory hepatic pseudotumor (IHPT) is an important benign liver disease because it is difficult to clinically and radiologically distinguish from malignant tumors. PRESENTATION OF CASE: Here, we describe a case of a 67-year-old male patient diagnosed with multiple inflammatory hepatic pseudotumors. The patient had undergone left hemicolectomy for descending colonic cancer (T3 N0 M0 stage IIA) 2 years prior. He underwent segment 6 and segment 7 partial hepatectomy because of suspected liver metastasis...

RATIONALE: The shortage of available donor organs limits the development of liver transplantation. This case-serial study presents a novel way to expand the donor pool by using the other-wise discarded partial liver resection graft with hepatic benign tumor. PATIENT CONCERNS: From 2012 to 2016, 15 patients with hepatic lesions were admitted to our hospital. 12 patients suffered from right epigastric discomfort and 3 patients worried about uncertain diagnosis. INTERVENTIONS: Regular hepatic lobectomy was performed for all patients and after back-table management the resected partial liver grafts were used for patients with end-stage liver disease for liver transplantation...

Small bowel obstruction in HIV patients is reportedly caused by inflammatory pseudotumor, Kaposi's sarcoma, cryptococcal lymphadenopathy and intestinal tuberculosis. The incidence of Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) infection in HIV patients is 3% for CD4 cell count of 100-199 /mm(3). MAC causing small bowel obstruction is rarely reported in the literature. We report a rare case of MAC causing mesenteric abscess with small bowel obstruction in a HIV patient with a CD4 cell count of 144 /mm(3). Patient was a 35-year-old HIV-positive male on highly active antiretroviral therapy who presented with partial small bowel obstruction secondary to mesenteric abscess...

OBJECTIVE: Our purpose was to evaluate the diagnostic performance of diffusion-weighted imaging, the relative minimum apparent diffusion coefficient (rADCmin) in differentiating primary central nervous system lymphomas (PCNSLs) from glioblastomas (GBMs) and inflammatory demyelinating pseudotumors (IDPs). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Magnetic resonance images were reviewed retrospectively in 82 patients including 39 PCNSLs, 35 GBMs, and 8 IDPs. Regions of interest were drawn around the tumor on contrast-enhanced axial images; these images were transferred onto coregistered ADC maps to obtain the ADCmin, and the normalized ADCmin ratios (rADCmin) were calculated using the formula rADCmin = ADCmin of the lesion / ADCmin of the normal white matter...

We present a unique case of a symptomatic adverse local tissue reaction in a patient with a ceramic-on-ceramic total hip bearing surface. To our knowledge, this pathological finding has not yet been described in a ceramic-on-ceramic articulation without a cobalt-chromium alloy trunnion or modular neck component as a source of metal wear. We conclude that despite its mechanical mostly benign wear characteristics, ceramic wear debris is not entirely inert and may lead to the development of adverse local tissue reaction...

BACKGROUND: The aseptic lymphocyte vasculitis-associated lesion (ALVAL) score and the modified Oxford ALVAL score are frequently used scoring methods to evaluate the morphologic features of periprosthetic tissues around metal-on-metal (MoM) hip implants. Except for the initial studies of these two morphology scoring methods, to our knowledge, no other studies have reported on intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) values for interobserver reliability of these scoring methods. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: Are the ALVAL and Oxford ALVAL scores reproducible? METHODS: The periprosthetic tissue of 37 revisions of 36 patients with failed MoM THAs were independently scored by three experienced pathologists using ALVAL and Oxford ALVAL scoring methods...

Spinal intradural extramedullary inflammatory pseudotumor (IPT) is an extremely rare entity. Spontaneous shrinking of a spinal IPT has never been reported. A case of an IPT of the cauda equina that regressed spontaneously is presented. A 78-year-old woman presented with hypoesthesia of both lower legs in the L4 nerve root distribution and motor weakness of the right leg. Preoperative CT myelography and MRI showed two tumor-like lesions located at T12-L1 and L2-3. The lesion at the T12-L1 level appeared to encase several nerve roots...

Background Pulmonary inflammatory pseudotumors are rare lesions that remain problematic in several aspects, especially regarding the therapeutic strategy. The goal of this study was to evaluate long-term survival in a multicenter series of patients who required surgery for pulmonary inflammatory pseudotumors. Methods Thirty-six cases of pulmonary inflammatory pseudotumors, operated on in 3 French thoracic surgery departments between 1989 and 2015, were studied retrospectively. We recorded pre-, peri- and postoperative data for each patient, and long-term survival was analyzed...

Fungal inflammatory pseudotumor (FIPT) of the liver is a rare disease that may be mistaken for a malignant tumor. It is difficult to diagnose because of its nonspecific clinical and imaging features. We report the case of a 46-year-old Asian man who presented with a mass in the right upper quadrant of the abdomen. The patient had undergone transcatheter arterial chemoembolization therapy at another institution 6 months earlier, but the mass had continued to enlarge. He had no history of chronic hepatitis B, and the serum α-fetoprotein was negative...

A 59-year-old woman suffered from fever and upper abdominal pain. The computed tomography (CT) scan revealed a liver lesion. Conventional imaging techniques (CT, magnetic resonance imaging, contrast-enhanced ultrasonography) did not allow for a consistent diagnosis. Fine needle biopsy of the liver lesion was performed. Histologically, fibrotic inflammation was found and an inflammatory pseudotumor (IPT) diagnosed. Despite treatment with steroids and antibiotics, the size of the IPT increased; thus, surgical resection was necessary...

Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumour (IMT) is a rare benign neoplastic tumour, originally described as an inflammatory pseudotumor. Only a single case of IMT in the spermatic cord associated with undescended testes has been reported. We present a rare case of abdominal IMT in a male infant with undescended bilateral testes. The abdominopelvic mass was suspected to be a gonadal malignancy due to empty scrotal sac but proved to be otherwise on histopathology. Mass was completely resected and orchiopexy was performed for both undescended normal-appearing testes...

Inflammatory pseudotumor is a term given to different neoplastic and nonneoplastic entities that have a common histological appearance, which comprises spindle cell proliferation with a prominent chronic inflammatory cell infiltrate. Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is an uncommon lesion with distinctive clinical, pathological and molecular features and is considered to be pseudotumor for the past two decades due to its appearance. IMT is an intermediate soft tissue tumor which was first observed in lungs...

Background Tumors of the lacrimal duct are rare. Inflammatory pseudotumors do not represent neoplasias as such. Chronic inflammation may lead to an angiomatous granulation tissue. Patients The first case presents a 53-year-old male patient suffering a mass of the mediocaudal orbit after an acute dacryocystitis has been cured. Using diagnostic dacryoendoscopy, a large dacryolith was detected. Removing the concrement, via external dacryocystorhinostomy, a polypous tissue appeared which was resected as well. The second case concerns a 29-year-old female patient...

BACKGROUND: Pulmonary inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) has been considered as a synonym for inflammatory pseudotumor (IPT) for a long time. Recent studies have indicated that IMT and IgG4-related IPT are distinct diseases. However, no consensus criteria have been recommended. Here we propose a set of criteria for the differential diagnosis. METHODS: Twenty-six archived IMT and IgG4-related IPT samples were examined for histological characteristics and the expression of IgG, IgG4, SMA and ALK-1...
