Most benign primary cardiac tumours are myxomas; non-myxomatous tumours are less common but comprise a wide variety. Cardiac lipoma is a rare non-myxomatous variety. A 70-year-old Caucasian woman with right breast cancer status postpartial mastectomy underwent surveillance MRI of the breast and was found to have a possible right atrial (RA) mass. She also reported frequent headaches and palpitations. She underwent a transoesophageal echocardiogram which showed a 2.6×1.6×1.6 cm echogenic mass at the superior vena cava (SVC) and RA junction...

We describe a 63-year-old male who presented with progressive exertional dyspnea, post-obstructive pneumonia and chest CT findings of an endobronchial lesion. Bronchoscopy revealed an endobronchial lipoma, which was resected using snare electrocautery. Complete resolution of the patient's symptoms was noted following bronchoscopic resection.

Extracraniofacial anomalies, including central nervous system (CNS) anomalies, may occur in craniofacial microsomia (CFM). This systematic review was performed to provide an overview of the literature on the prevalence and types of CNS anomalies and developmental disorders in CFM, in order to improve the recognition and possible treatment of these anomalies. A systematic search was conducted and data on the number of patients, patient characteristics, type and prevalence of CNS anomalies or developmental delay, and correlations between CFM and CNS anomalies were extracted...

We describe what is to our knowledge the first reported intraosseous spindle cell lipoma of the mandible. It is the first spindle cell lipoma we have seen that shows dental resorption, and the largest that we have seen published (60×30×20mm).

Abdominal lipomas are benign mesenchymal tumors of mature fatty tissue that may appear at any age. We present the case of a 58-year-old patient with a cardiovascular pathology, who presented with diffuse abdominal pains, asthenia, anterior thorax pains and palpitations, abdomen increase, symptoms that had an insidious onset. The clinical and imagistic examinations suggested the diagnosis of giant abdominal lipoma. The surgical intervention allowed the excision of an encapsulated tumor, of 250÷220÷230 mm, relatively well encapsulated, with a macroscopic aspect of section adipose tissue, with hard whitish areas, with a 12...

Human brown fat tumors (hibernomas) display concomitant loss of the tumor suppressor genes MEN1 and AIP. In the present study, we hypothesized that the brown fat phenotype is attributed to these mutations. Accordingly, we demonstrate that silencing of AIP in human brown preadipocytic and white fat cell lines results in the induction of the brown fat marker UCP1. In human adipocytic tumors, loss of MEN1 was found both in white (one out of 51 lipomas) and brown fat tumors. In contrast, concurrent loss of AIP was always accompanied by a brown fat morphology...

Spindle cell lipomas (SCL) are typically tumors of the upper back/neck (shawl region) of men (80% to 90%). In general, there is a frequent tendency to restrict the diagnosis to this specific clinical scenario and a hesitancy to diagnose SCL in women. We hypothesized that SCL in women have a more varied presentation. A total of 395 SCL were diagnosed at our institution over the last 11 years. The diagnosis of SCL in women was confirmed by re-review. Immunohistochemical stains for CD34, desmin, estrogen receptor, and p16 were performed...

BACKGROUND: Ultrasound has been used in the diagnosis of soft-tissue lesions for well over a decade. Lipomas are the most common, benign, soft-tissue tumor and comprise adipose tissue. The sensitivity and specificity of diagnosing lipomas on ultrasound vary greatly in the literature. PURPOSE: To perform a systematic review on ultrasonography in soft-tissue lipomas to better ascertain the true diagnostic value of this test. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A systematic review of the diagnostic value of ultrasound in lipomas was performed where possible in line with the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) guidelines...

The word 'bezoar' comes from either the Persian word 'padzahr' or the Arabic word 'badzehr' both of which denote 'antidote.' This word meant a hard stone found in the stomach of the Syrian goat and believed to prevent poisoning(1) .

Encephalocraniocutaneous lipomatosis (ECCL) or Haberland syndrome is an uncommon sporadic neurocutaneous syndrome of unknown origin. The rarity and common ignorance of the condition often makes diagnosis difficult. The hallmark of this syndrome is the triad of skin, ocular and central nervous system (CNS) involvement and includes a long list of combination of conditions. Herein we report a case of a 5-month-old male child who presented to our centre with complaint of seizure. The patient had various cutaneous and ocular stigmatas of the disease in the form of patchy alopecia of the scalp, right-sided limbal dermoid and a nodular skin tag near the lateral canthus of the right eye...

Atypical lipomatous tumor/well-differentiated liposarcoma/dedifferentiated liposarcoma (ALT/WDL/DDL) is a common type of liposarcoma in late adulthood. However, pediatric ALT/WDL/DDL is extremely rare, and only 3 cases have been described in children younger than 10years of age. Notably, none of these cases harbored MDM2 gene amplification. Here, we reported a sclerosing ALT/WDL in a 7-year-old Chinese girl. Histologically, in most areas, the neoplastic cells were embedded within the collagenous background and typical lipogenic areas were inconspicuous throughout the sclerotic areas...

BACKGROUND: Myxoid liposarcomas are highly radiosensitive. Consequently radiotherapy is often used pre-operatively to reduce tumor volume and lessen the post-operative deficit. In soft-tissue sarcomas therapy response is mainly evaluated using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and the fundamental criterion for a positive response is decreased tumor size. In myxoid liposarcomas an increased fat content is also known to occur as a response to radiotherapy. OBJECTIVE: To highlight the difficulties of MRI for therapy response evaluation in irradiated myxoid liposarcomas, by using MRI Dixon techniques enabling objective quantification of proton density fat fraction (%) and the number of double bonds (ndb; unsaturation degree) of fatty acids...

AIM: To investigate the range of pathologies treated by pancreas preserving distal duodenectomy (PPDD) and present the outcome of follow-up. METHODS: Neoplastic lesions of the duodenum are treated conventionally by pancreaticoduodenectomy. Lesions distal to the major papilla may be suitable for a pancreas-preserving distal duodenectomy, potentially reducing morbidity and mortality. We present our experience with this procedure. Selective intraoperative duodenoscopy assessed the relationship of the papilla to the lesion...

PD-1 and its ligands have been shown to play a significant role in evasion of malignant tumour cells from the immune system. Last year, the Unites States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved anti-PD-1 inhibitors for treatment of non-small cell lung carcinoma and recently expanded the use of immunotherapy for metastatic urothelial cell carcinoma and Hodgkin lymphoma. However, studies on expression of PD-1 and its ligand in malignant bone and soft tissue sarcoma are sparse. In this study, we evaluated PD-1 and PD-L1 expression on variants of liposarcomas and rhabdomyosarcomas, osteosarcomas and chondrosarcomas...
