Objective There remains confusion between Langer's lines and wrinkle lines with respect to the optimal orientation of elliptical excisions on the trunk. This study sought to determine the directions of wound closure that would result in least wound tension after skin lesion excisions. Materials and methods Some 1181 consecutive skin lesion excisions were investigated (age range 13-95 years, median 64 years) using a tensiometer to determine directions of least wound tension. These lines were mapped. Skin tension measurements were taken during the procedure and analysed...

Liposarcoma of the spermatic cord is a rare disease and often mistakenly diagnosed as inguinal hernia, hydrocele, and lipoma. We report the case of a 58-year-old man who presented with persistent discomfort and swelling on the left inguinal region. He was diagnosed with left scrotum lipoma when he was 12 years old. He underwent high orchiectomy and wide resection of the inguinal tumor. Histopathological examination revealed a well-differentiated liposarcoma of the spermatic cord with negative resection margin and scrotum lipoma...

Lipoma is a tumor of adipose tissue cells that can develop in any part of the body; We present the case of an 86-year-old woman with a lesion of the left thigh as well as her diagnostic approach, specific surgical treatment and histopathological analysis. Three years after its resection, the function of the lower extremity was preserved.

Ectopic cardiac fatty images are not rarely detected incidentally by computed tomography and cardiac magnetic resonance, or by exams focused on the heart as in general thoracic imaging evaluations. A correct interpretation of these findings is essential in order to recognize their normal or pathological meaning, focusing on the eventually associated clinical implications. The development of techniques such as computed tomography and cardiac magnetic resonance allowed a detailed detection and evaluation of adipose tissue within the heart...

Lipoma arborescens is a rare non-neoplastic condition that affects the synovial lining of joints and bursae accounting for less than 1% of all lipomatous lesions. Characterized by villous proliferation of the synovium, it is an uncommon cause of intra/periarticular mass presenting as a painless, slowly progressive longstanding swelling, and is sometimes accompanied by intermittent monoarticular effusions. We describe a rare case of bilateral lipoma arborescens in the bicipitoradial bursae in a young male referred for MRI evaluation of spontaneous bilateral elbow swelling...

Intestinal myxoma is among the rarest presentations of this benign tumour. Moreover, the association of an intestinal myxoma and a mesenteric lipoma is even more surprising. Intestinal tumours are often diagnosed inadvertently: a routine physical exam may identify these tumours or an abdominal computed tomography scan or abdominal ultrasound for another indication. Acute intestinal obstruction is rare. We hereby report the case of a 6-year-old boy who presented in the emergency room of our institution with acute intestinal obstruction and the management of this case...

Nondysraphic intramedullary spinal cord lipomas are even rarer. We present a thoracic intramedullary lipoma which spontaneously decreased in size following surgical debulking. A 3-year-old girl was admitted to our department with complaints of back pain since 1 year and progressive difficulty in walking since 6 months. Her magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed T8-9 intramedullary mass showing increased signal intensity in both T1- and T2-weighted images. The patient was operated with a T8-9 laminoplasty and debulking, and internal decompression of the tumor was made...

Schwannoma is a benign neural tumor derived from Schwann cells surrounding the nerves. It occurs primarily in subcutaneous tissues and muscles with a tendency for distal extremities, head, and neck area. Treatment of schwannoma is surgical excision. Lipomas are the most common soft-tissue lesions. A case is presented to increase awareness on differential diagnosis of head and neck subcutaneous masses.

Lipomas and lipoblastomas are benign tumors of mesenchymal origin in contrast to liposarcoma that is a malignant tumor. Atypical lipomatous lesion arising from embryonal fat cells is termed as lipoblastoma. In the present case report 9-month-old male presented to us with painless, rapidly progressing mass over back, power was normal in all four limbs, fine needle aspiration cytology was suggestive of cellular tissue, magnetic resonance imaging suggestive of well-defined enhancing mass in paravertebral location, extending from D3 to D10 vertebrae with intraspinal extension, communicating through neural foramina at level of D7...

Tethering of the spinal cord in the lumbosacral region with myelomeningocele is a well-known phenomenon. Only sporadic cases of tethering along the rest of the neuraxis, including the hindbrain, cervical, and thoracic spinal cord have been documented, always along with some associated congenital malformations (hydrocephalus, Chiari malformation, myelomeningocele, meningocele, hamartomatous stalk, spina bifida occulta, intramedullary lipoma, intradural fibrous adhesions, the fusion of the sixth and seventh cervical vertebrae, split cord malformation, or low-lying cord)...

Sialolipoma is a recently described rare histological variant of lipoma, characterized by well-demarcated proliferation of mature adipocytes with secondary entrapment of salivary gland elements. Less than forty cases of sialolipoma have been reported in English literature. This tumor has been reported both in major and minor salivary glands, with the parotid gland being the most common site. Age incidence in this tumor varies from 0 month to 84 years. However, the occurrence of this tumor in an infant is very rare...

Gastric lipomas are rare benign tumours of the stomach, representing less than 3% of all benign gastric neoplasms. They are usually asymptomatic but larger lesions can present with abdominal pain, gastric outlet obstruction and haematemesis. Malignant transformation is extremely rare. Accurate preoperative diagnosis can be established with computed tomography. Being benign, extensive surgery is not necessary and simple excision of the lesion is adequate. Small asymptomatic lesions can be followed up. We present a case of 80-year-old woman with gastric submucosal lipoma who presented with haematemesis...

BACKGROUND: Umbilical lesions are rare, and can be benign or malignant. This retrospective study was conducted to assess the epidemiological, clinical, and histologic characteristics of umbilical masses. METHODS: Cases of umbilical masses from January 1994 to August 2016 were retrieved from our institution's pathology databases, and their clinicopathological features were reviewed. RESULTS: There were a total of 99 cases of umbilical masses, 78 women (78...

Denervation of muscle usually leads to muscle atrophy with fatty replacement but, uncommonly, also results in muscle hypertrophy or pseudohypertrophy with fatty replacement. We report the ultrasonographic and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings of a patient with diffuse fatty infiltration of calf muscles as a result of denervation pseudohypertrophy. The elevated fasting glucose, neurogenic electromyographic changes, and muscle atrophy with adipose tissue infiltration are consistent with diabetic neuropathy as the cause of denervation pseudohypertrophy...

A 24-year-old male presented with a painless yellowish lesion on the nasal part of his cornea that extended to the paracentral area. Without a confirmed clinical diagnosis, the patient was advised surgical removal of the lesion. The lesion showed a smooth, elevated anterior surface without any signs of inflammation. On making a small incision over the lesion, we found yellowish material being extruded from the lesion. Cytological evaluation of the material revealed clear vacuolated cells suggestive of lipocytes, based on which we diagnosed it a rare case of corneal lipoma...
