Cellular angiofibromas are rare, slow-growing mesenchymal tumours, most often localised in the vulva and perineum of women. We present a case of a 60-year-old male with a 7-cm large cellular angiofibroma in the inguinal canal extending toward the testis, detected after inguinal herniorraphy. Inguinal orchiectomy was performed and the pathology report revealed a cellular angiofibroma containing a lot of mast cells in the stroma, which was collagenised with spindle-shaped cells and characterised by hyalinised vascular structures...

Nasopharyngeal angiofibroma is a benign but aggressive tumor of unknown etiology, typically occurring in adolescent males. It is described as a rare neoplasm; however, the prevalence seems to have geographic differences. All cases referred to our head and neck clinical and pathology service were reviewed. Most of the patients presented at an advanced stage. The clinical and radiographic features are presented and discussed. Histologically, the tumor shows a highly vascular fibrous proliferation with characteristic plump, angulated and stellate cells, categorized as fibroblasts...

Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma is a locally aggressive benign tumour which has propensity to erode the skull base. The tumour spreads along the pathways of least resistance and is in close proximity to the extracranial part of trigeminal nerve. Advancements in expanded approaches for endoscopic excision of tumours in infratemporal fossa and pterygopalatine fossa increase the vulnerability for the trigeminocardiac reflex. The manipulation of nerve and its branches during tumour dissection can lead to sensory stimulation and thus inciting the reflex...

Shintaro Sugita, Tadashi Hasegawa
During routine pathological examination, fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) plays a significant role in the genetic analysis of samples. FISH can detect genetic abnormalities such as chromosomal translocations, gene amplifications, and deletions in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) specimens. Due to its practical advantages, FISH is already used in many pathology laboratories. It is especially useful for the diagnosis of translocation-related sarcomas (TRSs), which comprise about 25% of soft tissue sarcomas...

Angiofibromas are rare, benign, but locally aggressive vascular tumours which account for 0.05-0.5% of all head and neck neoplasms. The common variant of angiofibromas of head and neck region is Juvenile Nasopharyngeal Angiofibroma (JNAF) which is well published in the literature. Incidence of Extranasopharygeal Angiofibromas (ENAF) is relatively rare and most of the published literature favours maxillary sinus as the most common site. We report a rare clinical entity of ENAF involving the upper lip which is first of its kind in the light of literature review owing to its anatomical location...

The current WHO classification system for tumors of the head and neck has made few changes from the previous edition with regards to tumors of the nasopharynx. The classification system is discussed here with particular attention to nasopharyngeal carcinoma, nasopharyngeal papillary adenocarcinoma, salivary gland anlage tumor, hairy polyp, juvenile angiofibroma, and other tumors.

Facial angiofibromas are benign tumors presenting as firm, dome-shaped, flesh-colored to pink papules, typically on the nose and adjoining central face. Clinically and dermoscopically they can mimic melanocytic nevi or basal cell carcinomas (BCC). Reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) is a noninvasive imaging tool that is useful in diagnosing melanocytic and non-melanocytic facial lesions. To date no studies have described the RCM features of facial angiofibromas. Herein, we present two cases of facial angiofibromas that were imaged with RCM and revealed tumor island-like structures that mimicked BCC, leading to skin biopsy...

Imaging plays an important role in the diagnosis, staging and prognosis of JNA. Certain radiological changes as seen on CECT were observed to be consistent in our case series. This study analysed preoperative and postoperative CECT of large series of JNA patients to evaluate the sites and pattern of spread of tumor. We evaluated the clinical significance of pterygoid wedge in preoperative and postoperative imaging and thus elucidating two new radiological signs. Retrospective analysis of the pre operative and post operative imaging data of 242 patients with JNA...

The extranasopharyngeal angiofibroma is a separate clinical entity but those involving infratemporal fossa and cheek resemble juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma (JNA) and hence have been labelled as juvenile perinasal angiofibroma (JPA) in this paper. This paper presents a 7th case of JPA and attempts to review the world literature on JPA, along with a proposal of staging the disease. A 16 year male presented with a painless compressible facial swelling since 7 months without any epistaxis or nasal obstruction...

Juvenile angiofibroma is an uncommon, benign, locally aggressive vascular tumor. It is found almost exclusively in young men. Common presenting symptoms include nasal obstruction and epistaxis. More advanced tumors may present with facial swelling and visual or neurological disturbances. The evaluation of patients with juvenile angiofibroma relies on diagnostic imaging. Preoperative biopsy is not recommended. The mainstay of treatment is resection combined with preoperative embolization. Endoscopic surgery is the approach of choice in early stages, whereas, in advanced stages, open or endoscopic approaches are feasible in expert hands...

BACKGROUND: Cellular angiofibroma is a rare benign mesenchymal neoplasm with morphological and immunohistochemical similarities to spindle cell lipoma. Karyotypic information on cellular angiofibroma is restricted to one case only which showed loss of material from chromosomes 13 and 16. A few other studies using fluorescence in situ hybridization showed deletions of the RB1 and FOXO1 loci, both of which are located in chromosome band 13q14. We present here cytogenetic data on two cellular angiofibromas with an abnormal karyotype...
