BACKGROUND: Atypical lipomatous tumor/well-differentiated liposarcoma (ALT/WDLS) is an intermediate or locally aggressive form of adipocytic soft tissue sarcoma. Muscular dystrophy (MD) is characterized by progressive muscle atrophy and its replacement by adipose and fibrous tissue. Recently, some authors have reported that MD genes are related to neoplastic formation, but there have been no detailed clinical reports of ALT associated with MD. CASE PRESENTATION: A 73-year-old woman with a diagnosis of limb-girdle MD visited our department for recurrence of a huge tumor in her left thigh...

AIM: Inguinal hernias may be direct or indirect, and supravesical hernias, a subtype of inguinal hernias, are often mistaken as direct hernias as their symptoms are similar. The purpose of this study was to describe the characteristics of supravesical hernias and to introduce a minimally invasive surgical method as a treatment for supravesical hernias. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty-seven patients with supravesical hernias were treated using laparoscopic herniorrhaphy and wall defect suture with a mesh implant from September 2012 to December 2016 at Damsoyu hospital, Seoul, Korea...

Madelung's disease (benign symmetric lipomatosis) is a rare syndrome in which there are multiple lipomas around the neck, upper limbs and trunk in the context of chronic alcoholism. We report on a female patient with lipomas and slightly progressive myoclonus, neuropathy, myopathy, ataxia and respiratory systemic involvement (labelled in the past as Madelung's disease). Multisystem involvement and family history of lipomas led to the development of mitochondrial genetic tests, which can assess two concurrent mitochondrial mutations: the m...

A 24-year-old woman presented with a 5-month history of a left flank mass that was painful on palpation. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a 10.0 × 6.0 × 2.5 cm mass consistent with lipoma. A fatty lobulated mass was excised and subjected to H&E staining and immunohistochemical analyses. The specimen consisted of mature univacuolated adipocytic cells, with intermixed multivacuolated eosinophilic granular cells. No atypia or hyperchromasia was identified. Most of the cells were S100 positive and Ki-67 immunonegative...

Lipoma in the alimentary tract is a rare entity, it can usually be found in the subcutaneous tissue. Generally, lipomas are asymptomatic. Gastrointestinal lipoma must be removed only in case of bleeding or obstruction. We report 3 successfully operated cases of gastrointestinal lipomas: one duodenal (a 4 cm in diameter lipoma was enucleated from the bulb), one in the small bowel (ileal lipoma causing intususception; due to the unusual masroscopical appearance, segmental resection was performed), and one in the large bowel (colonic lipoma located at 47 cm from the anus, causing intermittent obstruction was remowed by colotomy)...

REVIEW

Calcaneal cysts and lipomas are relatively rare, benign bone lesions. They are similar in many ways, including in their location and radiological appearance, but their content differs. Cysts contain fluid whereas lipomas contain fat, although some lesions may exhibit a mixed content. The pathogenesis of the two entities is the subject of controversy. The theory that calcaneal cysts may result from lipomatous necrosis has been widely suggested in the literature, but no such progression has ever been shown. The contrary hypothesis has also been considered, i...

Isolated cysticercosis of anterior abdominal wall without parasitosis of central nervous system is very rare and may mimic a tumor leading to diagnostic and therapeutic dilemma. Histopathological examination plays an important role in making a definitive diagnosis. Here we report a case of a 13-year old Muslim girl presenting with swelling and pain in left lower abdomen which was clinically diagnosed as lipoma. On histopathological examination cysticercus with surrounding inflammation was seen. Since cysticercosis is a preventable disease, early and accurate diagnosis is necessary for the reduction of disease burden in the endemic areas...

Most boney and cartilaginous lesions of the orbit and periorbital compartments are benign, grow endophytically, and are composed of dense lamellar bone (eburnated or ivory osteomas). An 87-year-old woman had a well-circumscribed, firm, round, and exophytic lesion of the brow region for at least 15 years. Excisional surgery disclosed an osteocartilaginous lesion with an enveloping pseudocapsule (periosteum/perichondrium) and a narrow stalk connecting it to the frontal bone. The periphery of the lesion displayed lamellar bone which appeared to be replacing a central cartilaginous zone...

Chondrolipoma is an extremely rare variant of lipoma with cartilaginous metaplasia. The presence of nonlipomatous components can lead to a variety of entities in the differential diagnosis from the radiologic findings. We describe an unusual case of a chondrolipoma occurring in the right ankle of a 9-year-old female. Physical examination showed a 3.5-cm, elastic-hard, poorly mobile, nontender mass adherent to the Achilles tendon. Plain radiographs revealed a faintly calcified soft tissue mass without bone involvement...

BACKGROUND: Upper gastrointestinal subepithelial tumors (SETs) may harbor potential malignancy. Although it is well recognized that large SETs should be resected, the treatment strategy remains controversial. Compared to surgical resection, endoscopic resection has many advantages such as less invasive, shorter hospital stay, lower costs, and better quality of life. However, Endoscopic resection of large SETs in the cardia is challenging. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) in the treatment of such SETs...

Endobronchial lipoma is a rare benign tumor. Bronchoscopic intervention or surgical resection is reported for its treatment. A 63-year-old woman underwent chest X-ray and computed tomography (CT) scan for observation of her continuous wheezing. CT scan showed atelectasis in the left lower lobe and a tumor in the left lower lobe bronchus. Bronchoscopic examinations could not confirm the diagnosis. Although laser therapy was conducted, the tumor could not be resected due to the bleeding and the patient underwent left lower lobectomy...

INTRODUCTION: The primary urologic objectives for lipomyelomeningocele (LMM) and myelomeningocele (MM) are preserving renal integrity and achieving continence. Due to this common ground, LMM and MM are urologically treated the same. However, unlike MM, LMM may present with no evident functional concerns. Indications for and timing of tethered cord release (TCR) in LMM are therefore controversial. Long-term urologic outcomes are not well defined. OBJECTIVE: Expectations for continence and potential for intermittent catheterization (CIC) following TCR in LMM are important for realistically counseling families regarding future needs...

Catheter probe endoscopic ultrasonography (C-EUS) by ultrasonographic jelly-filled method has been used to evaluate esophageal subepithelial tumors (SETs). Ultrasonographic jelly is safe on the skin, but its internal safety has not been demonstrated. The jelly stored at room temperature is easily injected into the esophagus through the instrument channel of the endoscope. However, using jelly stored at room temperature remains problematic because the jelly is drained rapidly. We used cold lubricating jelly and an intravenous extension tube to resolve these problems...

Lumbosacral lipoma is reported to occur in 4-8 of 100,000 patients. Sixty-six percent of lipomyelomeningocele in young patients have accompanied by hypertrophic filum terminale. It is rare to find two isolated spinal lipomas simultaneously. Embryological origin of dorsal and filar lipomas is different from each other and hence rarer to find them together. Radical resection is now being preferred for better long-term progression-free survival. We report an interesting case of spinal dysraphism in a 4-month-old female child with protruding, nontender, soft, subcutaneous 5 cm × 7 cm mass of the lumbosacral area that had been present since birth...

BACKGROUND Torsion of an intra-abdominal lipoma is rarely the cause of acute abdominal pain. Most of the previously reported cases of intra-abdominal lipoma torsion originated in the mesentery or omentum. However, an antimesenteric lipoma of the ileum with torsion has not been reported before. CASE REPORT A 67-year-old man presented to the emergency department with acute abdominal pain. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CECT) of the abdomen and pelvis only showed a giant fat-containing, soft-tissue, intra-abdominal tumor, suspected to be a lipoma...

The presence and frequency of lipoblasts (LPB) in spindle cell lipomas (SCL) and pleomorphic lipomas (PL) has never been studied in detail on histologically, immunohistochemically and molecular genetically validated set of tumors. The authors investigated this feature by reviewing 91 cases of SCL and 38 PL. When more than three unequivocal LPB were found, the case was regarded as positive for the presence of LPB. All positive cases were then stained with CD34 and Retinoblastoma (Rb) protein antibodies and tested by FISH for MDM2 and CDK4 amplifications and the FUS gene rearrangements...
