Angiomyolipoma: A benign tumor containing vascular, adipose, and muscle elements. It occurs most often in the kidney with smooth muscle elements (angiolipoleiomyoma) in association with tuberous sclerosis. (Dorland, 27th ed)Liver Neoplasms: Tumors or cancer of the LIVER.Tuberous Sclerosis: Autosomal dominant neurocutaneous syndrome classically characterized by MENTAL RETARDATION; EPILEPSY; and skin lesions (e.g., adenoma sebaceum and hypomelanotic macules). There is, however, considerable heterogeneity in the neurologic manifestations. It is also associated with cortical tuber and HAMARTOMAS formation throughout the body, especially the heart, kidneys, and eyes. Mutations in two loci TSC1 and TSC2 that encode hamartin and tuberin, respectively, are associated with the disease.Lymphangioleiomyomatosis: A disease characterized by the progressive invasion of SMOOTH MUSCLE CELLS into the LYMPHATIC VESSELS, and the BLOOD VESSELS. The majority of the cases occur in the LUNGS of women of child-bearing age, eventually blocking the flow of air, blood, and lymph. The common symptom is shortness of breath (DYSPNEA).Kidney Neoplasms: Tumors or cancers of the KIDNEY.Epithelioid Cells: Characteristic cells of granulomatous hypersensitivity. They appear as large, flattened cells with increased endoplasmic reticulum. They are believed to be activated macrophages that have differentiated as a result of prolonged antigenic stimulation. Further differentiation or fusion of epithelioid cells is thought to produce multinucleated giant cells (GIANT CELLS).Heart Neoplasms: Tumors in any part of the heart. They include primary cardiac tumors and metastatic tumors to the heart. Their interference with normal cardiac functions can cause a wide variety of symptoms including HEART FAILURE; CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIAS; or EMBOLISM.Physicians: Individuals licensed to practice medicine.Judgment: The process of discovering or asserting an objective or intrinsic relation between two objects or concepts; a faculty or power that enables a person to make judgments; the process of bringing to light and asserting the implicit meaning of a concept; a critical evaluation of a person or situation.Heart: The hollow, muscular organ that maintains the circulation of the blood.Angiolipoma: A benign neoplasm composed of a mixture of adipose tissue and blood vessels. (Dorland, 27th ed)IcelandBibliometrics: The use of statistical methods in the analysis of a body of literature to reveal the historical development of subject fields and patterns of authorship, publication, and use. Formerly called statistical bibliography. (from The ALA Glossary of Library and Information Science, 1983)Perivascular Epithelioid Cell Neoplasms: A family of mesenchymal tumors composed of histologically and immunohistochemically distinctive perivascular epithelioid cells. These cells do not have a normal anatomic homolog. (From Fletcher CDM, et. al., World Health Organization Classification of Tumors: Pathology and Genetics of Tumors of Soft Tissue and Bone, 2002).Programming Languages: Specific languages used to prepare computer programs.Hong Kong: The former British crown colony located off the southeast coast of China, comprised of Hong Kong Island, Kowloon Peninsula, and New Territories. The three sites were ceded to the British by the Chinese respectively in 1841, 1860, and 1898. Hong Kong reverted to China in July 1997. The name represents the Cantonese pronunciation of the Chinese xianggang, fragrant port, from xiang, perfume and gang, port or harbor, with reference to its currents sweetened by fresh water from a river west of it.Cholesterol: The principal sterol of all higher animals, distributed in body tissues, especially the brain and spinal cord, and in animal fats and oils.Hypertriglyceridemia: A condition of elevated levels of TRIGLYCERIDES in the blood.Pregnancy-Specific beta 1-Glycoproteins: Glycoproteins with the electrophoretic mobility of BETA-GLOBULINS, secreted by the placental TROPHOBLASTS into the maternal bloodstream during PREGNANCY. They can be detected 18 days after OVULATION and reach 200 mg/ml at the end of pregnancy. They are associated with fetal well-being.Chagas Cardiomyopathy: A disease of the CARDIAC MUSCLE developed subsequent to the initial protozoan infection by TRYPANOSOMA CRUZI. After infection, less than 10% develop acute illness such as MYOCARDITIS (mostly in children). The disease then enters a latent phase without clinical symptoms until about 20 years later. Myocardial symptoms of advanced CHAGAS DISEASE include conduction defects (HEART BLOCK) and CARDIOMEGALY.Pregnancy: The status during which female mammals carry their developing young (EMBRYOS or FETUSES) in utero before birth, beginning from FERTILIZATION to BIRTH.Thrombocytopenia: A subnormal level of BLOOD PLATELETS.Prolapse: The protrusion of an organ or part of an organ into a natural or artificial orifice.Uterine Prolapse: Downward displacement of the UTERUS. It is classified in various degrees: in the first degree the UTERINE CERVIX is within the vaginal orifice; in the second degree the cervix is outside the orifice; in the third degree the entire uterus is outside the orifice.Rectal Prolapse: Protrusion of the rectal mucous membrane through the anus. There are various degrees: incomplete with no displacement of the anal sphincter muscle; complete with displacement of the anal sphincter muscle; complete with no displacement of the anal sphincter muscle but with herniation of the bowel; and internal complete with rectosigmoid or upper rectum intussusception into the lower rectum.Mitral Valve Prolapse: Abnormal protrusion or billowing of one or both of the leaflets of MITRAL VALVE into the LEFT ATRIUM during SYSTOLE. This allows the backflow of blood into left atrium leading to MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY; SYSTOLIC MURMURS; or CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIA.Pelvic Organ Prolapse: Abnormal descent of a pelvic organ resulting in the protrusion of the organ beyond its normal anatomical confines.

Differentiation of small hyperechoic renal cell carcinoma from angiomyolipoma: computer-aided tissue echo quantification. (1/177)

To assess the value of computer-aided tissue echo quantification in differentiating small hyperechoic renal cell carcinomas from angiomyolipomas, we studied ultrasonographic images of 15 renal cell carcinomas and 20 angiomyolipomas. After digitizing the images, we measured the absolute gray scale values of the renal cortex, central echo complex, and mass. The relative gray scale value (%) of the mass was calculated by setting the gray scale value of the cortex as 0% and the central echo complex as 100%. The relative gray scale value of renal cell carcinomas was in the range of 12 to 73% (mean, 28%), whereas that of angiomyolipomas was 30 to 204% (mean, 130%). The differentiation between small hyperechoic renal cell carcinomas and angiomyolipomas can be facilitated by computer-aided tissue echo quantification.  (+info)

Tuberous sclerosis associated with multiple hepatic lipomatous tumors and hemorrhagic renal angiomyolipoma. (2/177)

We report a case of tuberous sclerosis associated with hepatic lipomatous tumors and renal angiomyolipomas. Abdominal ultrasonography revealed a high echoic large tumor in the left kidney. A provisional diagnosis of angiomyolipomas of the kidney was made based on computed tomography. Subsequent laparotomy revealed that the extracted tumor was renal angiomyolipoma. It was also revealed that there was an association with hepatic lipomatous tumors thought to be lipomas or angiomyolipomas by liver biopsy. Nearly half of all cases of angiomyolipoma in the kidney are reported as occasional association with tuberous sclerosis complex, but lipomatous tumors in the liver are rare.  (+info)

Angiomyolipoma of the liver--a case report and review of 48 cases reported in Japan. (3/177)

Hepatic angiomyolipoma was considered to be a rare benign tumor, but the number of cases has been increasing recently as imaging techniques improve. We describe a case of hepatic angiomyolipoma for which a definitive diagnosis could not be made on imagings and in which resection was performed. The patient had anti-HCV antibody and slight dysfunction of the liver. The tumor showed a heterogeneous high echo on ultrasonography and a low attenuation value of +32.6 Housfield Units, which was much higher than fat density, on plain computed tomography. Discrimination from hepatocellular carcinoma with fatty change was difficult preoperatively. Microscopically, the tumor consisted of spindle-shaped and epithelioid smooth muscles, adipose tissues and proliferating blood vessels and these histological findings confirmed the diagnosis of hepatic angiomyolipoma. The appearance of hepatic angiomyolipoma on imaging diagnosis varies widely due to the fact that the relative proportion of vessels, muscles and fats varies widely from tumor to tumor. The tumor in our case had relatively few fat components. We review 48 cases reported in Japan and discuss imaging diagnosis and surgical indications for tumors.  (+info)

Renal function after tumor enucleation: assessment by quantitative SPECT of 99mTc-dimercaptosuccinic acid uptake by the kidneys. (4/177)

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the amount of functioning renal mass removed and the amount of remaining individual renal function after tumor enucleation. METHODS: Renal functional volume, percentage injected dose (%ID) per cubic centimeter of renal tissue and individual renal uptake of 24 operated and 24 contralateral kidneys were studied by two sequential SPECT quantitations of 99mTc-dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) uptake by the kidneys (QDMSA). The first study was before surgery and the second study was 1 to 6 mo (mean 3.5 mo) after surgery. Mean tumor size was 3.4 +/- 0.99 cm and all tumors were confined to the renal parenchyma (stages pT1 and pT2). RESULTS: In the operated kidneys, there was a statistically significant decrease in renal cortical volume (170 +/- 46 mL after surgery versus 207 +/- 45 mL before surgery, t = 6.2, P < 0.001) and individual renal uptake (10.3% +/- 3.0% after surgery versus 13.0% +/- 2.9% before surgery, t = 5.4, P < 0.001). There was no statistically significant change after surgery compared with before surgery in the %ID per cubic centimeter of renal tissue of the operated kidneys, and in the volume, %ID per cubic centimeter and uptake of the contralateral normal kidneys. CONCLUSION: The results suggest that QDMSA is a noninvasive method able to assess changes in separate renal function. The limited functioning parenchymal loss after tumor enucleation had no effect on the opposite kidneys.  (+info)

Trabecular angiomyolipoma mimicking hepatic cell carcinoma. (5/177)

Hepatic angiomyolipomas are rare tumors, especially in comparison with those occurring in the kidney. Nevertheless, it is important to be aware of their existence, especially when occurring in the liver, where they might have different subtypes. Not infrequently they are composed of rather irregular cells with epithelioid appearance. In these cases hepatocellular carcinoma or the possibility of other malignant tumors has to be ruled out, with the aid of numerous immunohistochemical reactions. The authors present a case of a female patient, whose liver lesion was first diagnosed on cytological examination as a hepatocellular carcinoma. Based on the preoperative cytological diagnosis, a large liver lobe resection was performed. Histological examination found an angiomyolipoma of the above-mentioned type, and the final diagnosis was ascertained with the aid of vimentin, smooth muscle actin (SMA), and HMB-45.  (+info)

Concurrent angiomyolipoma and renal cell neoplasia: a study of 36 cases. (6/177)

Little is known about the association of angiomyolipoma and adult renal-cell neoplasia. We studied the clinicopathologic features of 36 patients with concurrent angiomyolipoma and renal-cell neoplasia from the consultation and surgical pathology files of nine institutions. HMB-45 immunoreactivity was analyzed in both neoplasms. Twenty-five sporadic cases of patients with angiomyolipoma and renal-cell neoplasia and 11 cases of patients with tuberous sclerosis, as defined by Gomez' criteria, had mean ages of 59 and 53 years, respectively, and female-male ratios of 2:1 and 5:1, respectively. The mean size of the angiomyolipomas was 1 cm in the sporadic cases and 3 cm in those patients with tuberous sclerosis (medians: 0.5 and 3 cm, respectively, P =.002). The mean sizes of the renal-cell neoplasms were 5 cm in sporadic cases and 6 cm in patients with tuberous sclerosis (medians: 4 and 5 cm, respectively; P =.88). In both clinical settings, angiomyolipoma was more commonly the incidental tumor. Clear-cell (conventional) renal-cell carcinoma was the most common renal-cell neoplasm in both groups of patients, accounting for approximately two thirds of the tumors. In patients with tuberous sclerosis, 27% of renal-cell neoplasms were oncocytomas, compared with 8% in sporadic cases (P =.15). Papillary neoplasia, chromophobe, and collecting-duct renal-cell carcinoma were found only in sporadic cases. All of the 22 renal-cell neoplasms studied were negative for HMB-45, whereas all 25 angiomyolipomas studied were positive.  (+info)

Unilateral concurrence of pyelocaliceal diverticula and intracapsular angiomyolipoma in the kidney of a cat. (7/177)

A 7-month-old cat was examined for progressive abdominal distension. Radiography showed a fluid-containing cyst, which had subsequently ruptured as the result of a fall. Nephrectomy was performed, and examination revealed the coexistence of pyelocaliceal diverticula with a cystic intracapsular angiomyolipoma (mesenchymal hamartoma) in the left kidney. The diverticula were present on both cranial and caudal poles of the kidney and were lined by transitional epithelium. The hamartoma was characterized by the presence of multiple mesenchymal tissues, including thick-walled blood vessels, smooth muscle, and adipose tissue.  (+info)

A case of retroperitoneal lipoleiomyoma. (8/177)

We report a case of lipoleiomyoma which arose in retroperitoneum and presented with progressively distended abdomen in a 56-yr-old woman. The tumor was well encapsulated and consisted of two components, benign smooth muscle cells and mature adipose tissue without any atypia. It is likely to be mistaken as extrarenal angiomyolipoma, well-differentiated liposarcoma and leiomyoma with fatty change. We review the histologic characteristics of previously reported myolipoma and describe essential points of differential diagnosis.  (+info)

Angiomyolipomas are the most common benign tumour of the kidney. Although regarded as benign, angiomyolipomas may grow such that kidney function is impaired or the blood vessels may dilate and burst leading to bleeding. Angiomyolipomas are strongly associated with the genetic disease tuberous sclerosis, in which most individuals will have several angiomyolipomas affecting both kidneys. They are also commonly found in women with the rare lung disease lymphangioleiomyomatosis. Angiomyolipomas are less commonly found in the liver and rarely in other organs. Whether associated with these diseases or sporadic, angiomyolipomas are caused by mutations in either the TSC1 or TSC2 genes, which govern cell growth and proliferation. They are composed of blood vessels, smooth muscle cells and fat cells. Large angiomyolipoma can be treated with embolisation. Drug therapy for angiomyolipoma is at the research stage. The Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance has published guidelines on diagnosis, surveillance and ...

Y1 - 2011/3/1. N2 - Angiomyolipoma (AML) in the oral cavity is extremely rare. Their histological features are characterized by admixtures of blood vessels, smooth muscles and mature adipose tissues. We report a case of sporadic AML in the lower lip of a 56-year-old man. Clinically, it presented as a mucocele-like lesion. An excised specimen showed a well-circumscribed, 1.3 cm × 1.0 cm × 0.8 cm-sized, yellowish mass, composed of blood vessels, smooth muscles and mature adipose tissues. These were not epithelioid cells and immunohistochemical stain for human melanoma black (HMB)-45 was negative. Extrarenal AML usually is not associated with tuberous sclerosis and has no HMB-45 immunoreactive cells although it shares the terminology with renal AML. It is regarded as benign.

OBJECTIVES: We examined the long-term effects of everolimus in patients with renal angiomyolipoma associated with tuberous sclerosis complex or sporadic lymphangioleiomyomatosis. METHODS: Following favorable results from the double-blind core phase of EXIST-2 (NCT00790400), patients were allowed to receive open-label everolimus (extension phase). Patients initially randomly assigned to everolimus continued on the same dose; those who were receiving placebo crossed over to everolimus 10 mg/day. Dose modifications were based on tolerability. The primary end point was angiomyolipoma response rate, defined as a ≥50% reduction from baseline in the sum volume of target renal angiomyolipomas in the absence of new target angiomyolipomas, kidney volume increase of >20% from nadir, and angiomyolipoma-related bleeding grade ≥2. The key secondary end point was safety. RESULTS: Of the 112 patients who received ≥1 dose of everolimus, 58% (95% CI, 48.3% to 67.3%) achieved angiomyolipoma response. Almost ...
Gross findings of hepatic EAMLs are usually reported as tan colored nodule with variegated appearance, because of intra-tumoral hemorrhage, adipose component, and in sometimes, necrosis. Microscopic findings of hepatic EAML is characterized by epithelioid tumor cells with plump eosinophilic granular cytoplasm arranged around blood vessesls. Those cells usually show round to polygonal cytoplasm and round and large nucleus with prominent nuclei. In some cases, tumor cells show clear cytoplasm rather than eosinophilic cytoplasm. The adipose component may be scanty or absent. The multinucleated giant cells and large ganglion like tumor cells were common. Usually, mitotic figures of tumor cell is rarely observed. The predominance of epithelioid cell is the most important factor for the diagnosis of EAML. There is still a debate on the cut-off ratio of epithelioid cells needed for the diagnosis of EAML [11]. The immunohistochemical staining is important in the diagnosis of EAML. It is well-known that ...

What is your diagnosis?. Diagnosis: Angiomyolipoma of ileum. Discussion:. Microscopically, there were dilated vascular spaces with adipose tissue and foamy histiocytes. There was intermixed adipose tissue, blood vessels, and smooth muscle bundles. No atypia was present.. Angiomyolipoma is a benign triphasic tumor composed of dysmorphic, thick walled blood vessels, smooth muscle that appears to spin off from vessel walls, and mature lipid-distended cells. Tumors occasionally have bizarre epithelioid smooth muscle cells (Int J Surg Pathol 2000;8:67) and possible multinucleation.. Angiomyolipoma is a member of the PEComa family, a concept first proposed by Bonetti (Am J Surg Pathol 1992;16:307), which comprises mesenchymal tumors with perivascular clear cells and epithelioid features that coexpress melanocytic and muscle markers. It is occasionally associated with tuberous sclerosis (OMIM #191100). Gastrointestinal angiomyolipoma is very rare. It usually arises in the kidney (eMedicine), or ...

The peculiar histology of AML has been the subject of much investigation. While previously hypothesized to represent a hamartoma, later studies disclosed the clonal nature of AML (Kattar et al, 1999). It is currently accepted that renal AML results from aberrant differentiation of a transformed renal progenitor (Folpe & Kwiatkowski, 2010). Accordingly, two key questions surround AML biology. First, which molecular mechanisms drive its development and growth? Second, what is the AML cell of origin? Unfortunately, the study of AML, the leading cause of death in TSC, is severely limited by the absence of an in vivo model, thereby hampering the development of new therapies. Most studies attempting to develop such a model relied on TSC1/2‐deficient rodents (Kobayashi et al, 1995, 1999, 2001; Liang et al, 2014). However, none has resulted in tumors exhibiting the full histological features of genuine AML. Via serial propagation of human AML cells in mice, we provide the first description of such a ...
PEDEMONTE, J.G. et al. Angiomyolipoma and lenk syndrome: case report. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2008, vol.32, n.8, pp.850-854. ISSN 0210-4806.. Angiomyolipoma (AML) is a benign clonal neoplasm that consists of varying amounts of mature adipose tissue, smooth muscle, and thick-walled vessels. Approximately 20% of AMLs are found in patients with tuberous sclerosis syndrome (TS), an autosomal-dominant disorder characterized by mental retardation, epilepsy, and adenoma sebaceous, a distinctive skin lesion. Massive retroperitoneal hemorrhage from AML, also known as Wunderlichs syndrome, has been found in up to 10% of patients and represents the most significant and feared complication. The presence of even a small amount of fat within a renal lesion on CT scan (confirmed by Hounsfield unit s ≤10) is considered diagnostic of AML. Intervention should be considered for larger tumors, particularly if the patient is symptomatic, taking into account patient age, comorbidities, and other related factors. ...

CRL-4008 was derived from SV7tert (ATCC CRL-2461), a non-tumorigenic angiomyolipoma cell line immortalized with the SV40 large T antigen and human telomerase, by transduction with a retrovirus encoding PDGF-BB.  The transduced cells were implanted into nude mice and formed tumors from which SV7tert PDGF tumor-1 (ATCC CRL-4008) was derived.The tumor-derived cells secrete over 18-fold more PDGF than pre-implantation cells, and demonstrate both autocrine transformation and epigenetic changes.
The ultrasound images of RCC is a (usually) large, heterogeneous mass which enlarges and deforms the shape of the kidney (Fig. below). The mass may contain areas of cystic degeneration and/or calcification. It has a predilection to spread into the ipsilateral renal vein and IVC (see also Chapter 8). olour Doppler usually reveals a disorganized and increased blood flow pattern within the mass with high velocities from the arterioverous shunts within the carcinoma. Smaller RCCs can be hyperechoic and may be confused with benign angiomyolipoma. The latter has well-defined borders whilst an RCC is illdefined: differentiation may not be possible on all occasions and biopsy or interval scan may be required. A chest X-ray and/or CT will demonstrate if metastases are present in the lungs. Liver, adrenal and lymph node metastases can be demonstrated on ultrasound but CT is used for staging purposes as ultrasound generally has a lower sensitivity for distant disease detection ...

The ultrasound also showed bilateral angiomyolipomas, which I understand, are rare, benign tumours. I am rather concerned about these as, from what I have been able to glean, they often grow and when they reach 4cm there is a danger of haemorrhage. A CT scan with contrast, that I had a two weeks ago, should have shown their size at present and Im now waiting to for an appointment with the urologist to discuss the results. I also have a cyst on one kidney and, as of three years ago when I had my last CT scan, although this was septated, it was Bosniak 2, so Im hoping that it is still OK ...

So I am new to this, I usually have just eaten whatever and allowed fat + muscle gain to occur at whatever rate it happens, this allowed for increases in mass and strength. Anyway I am new to the concept of a lean bulk. How fast can muscle grow with minimal fat accumulation? I am trying to hit 3300 - 3500 kcals per day, this is 500 above

Its actually really easy once you measure it out. Remember, you are putting it on topically. That means you part the fur and just place the dose on the skin. Most people place it on the back of the neck. You should measure it out correctly, but if you end up giving a tiny bit more than called for, it will not hurt the pig. Also apply it 3 times, one week apart. So you can actually do all the doses within a two week period. For instance, if you get the ivermectin on a Tuesday, do the first dose right away. Then dose on the following Tuesday and again the Tuesday after that. If its not cleared up by then, you can do a fourth dose as well ...
The benign, non-invasive lesions of tuberous sclerosis can appear in any organ like the brain, heart, skin, eyes, kidney, lung, and liver. Therefore, TS has a wide clinical spectrum. The diagnosis of definitive TS is based on specific clinical features and requires the presence of two major criteria, or one major and two minor [3]. Pulmonary lymphangioleiomyomatosis, renal angiomyolipoma and facial angiofibroma are some of the major clinical features.. The most frequent cause of death in patients with TS is renal complication [3, 5]. Multifocal, bilateral angiomyolipomas are found in about 70-90% of adult patients [3], and the prevalence increases with age, being less frequent in children [3, 4]. These lesions are more often prevalent in women, suggesting a hormonal component to the tumor growth [6]. The angiomyolipomas are composed of varying amounts of mature adipose tissue, smooth muscle, and abnormal blood vessels [3, 6]. The demonstration of intratumoral fat with negative attenuation values ...

LAM also occurs in patients who do not have TSC. This form, termed "sporadic LAM" or "S-LAM," is diagnosed in at least 2.5-5 per million women, or roughly 10,000 women worldwide, although it is likely that S-LAM is substantially underdiagnosed. To date, only one biopsy-documented case of S-LAM in a male has been reported. Although less common, most patients seen in the clinic have S-LAM rather than TSC-LAM.. In LAM, lung destruction occurs as a result of neoplastic proliferation of benign-appearing smooth muscle cells in the lung. Genetic evidence indicates that the LAM cells that infiltrate the lung arise from an unknown extrapulmonary source and spread via the bloodstream and lymphatics. Leading candidates for the site of origin include the uterus, renal angiomyolipomas, and lymphatics. LAM cells express the lymphangiogenic growth factors VEGF-C and VEGF-D and induce disordered lymphatic channel formation in the lung and lymphatics. "Frustrated lymphangiogenesis" likely contributes to the ...
Tuberous sclerosis complex is caused by inactivating mutations in TSC1 (hamartin) or TSC2 (tuberin) tumor suppressor genes. The disorder is associated with increased activity of mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), a central regulator of protein synthesis and cell growth that is inhibited by chronic oxygen deprivation (hypoxia). Tumor hypoxia has been associated with a negative prognosis in several types of cancers. With funding from a Department of Defense Tuberous Sclerosis Complex Research Program Fiscal Year 2003 Idea Development Award, Dr. William Kaelin of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute has discovered that the TSC1/TSC2 protein complex regulates mTOR in response to hypoxia. Dr. Kaelin and his research team showed that an intact TSC1/TSC2 complex is required for mTOR inhibition by hypoxia. Inactivation of TSC2 conferred a proliferative advantage to cells grown under hypoxic conditions. Dr. Kaelins group further defined the mechanisms of TSC1/TSC2-mediated mTOR inhibition under hypoxic ...
Ultrasound (US) scan showed bilateral renal masses. CT scan of the abdomen revealed mass lesions in both kidneys (Fig. 1 D). The lesions showed no fat attenuation, with areas of necrosis and calcifications suggestive of bilateral renal cell carcinoma. The parents refused further evaluation and treatment.. Discussion. Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is an extremely variable genetic disorder that can affect virtually any organ in the body. The most common findings are benign tumours in the skin, brain, kidneys, lungs and heart, which can lead to organ dysfunction. TSC is highly variable in clinical presentation and findings. Diagnosis is made based on the updated diagnostic criteria established at the Tuberous Sclerosis Complex Consensus Conference in 2012. Disease manifestations continue to develop over the lifetime of an affected individual. Accurate diagnosis is fundamental to implementation of appropriate medical surveillance and treatment, apart from being crucial for optimal quality of life ...
Severe developmental stenosis. Herniated Disc at L4-5 with cauda equina compression. Heterogeneous marrow signal likely due to prior radiation therapy. Fat containing mass upper pole left kidney, thought to be an angiomyolipoma.
Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is an autosomal dominant disease caused by mutations in either the TSC1 (encodes hamartin) or TSC2 (encodes tuberin) genes. Patients with TSC have hamartomas in various organs throughout the whole body, most notably in the brain, skin, eye, heart, kidney and lung. To study the development of hamartomas, we generated a zebrafish model of TSC featuring a nonsense mutation (vu242) in the tsc2 gene. This tsc2vu242 allele encodes a truncated Tuberin protein lacking the GAP domain, which is required for inhibition of Rheb and of the TOR kinase within TORC1. We show that tsc2vu242 is a recessive larval-lethal mutation that causes increased cell size in the brain and liver. Greatly elevated TORC1 signaling is observed in tsc2vu242/vu242 homozygous zebrafish, and is moderately increased in tsc2vu242/+ heterozygotes. Forebrain neurons are poorly organized in tsc2vu242/vu242 homozygous mutants, which have extensive gray and white matter disorganization and ectopically ...

Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is a genetic disorder characterized by seizures, mental disability, renal dysfunction and dermatological abnormalities. The disease is caused by inactivation of either hamartin or tuberin, the products of the TSC1 and TSC2 tumour-suppressor genes. Hamartin and tuberin form a complex and antagonise phosphoinositide 3-kinase/protein kinase B/target of rapamycin signal transduction by inhibiting p70 S6 kinase, an activator of translation, and activating 4E-binding protein 1, an inhibitor of translation initiation. Phosphorylation-dependent binding between tuberin and members of the 14-3-3 protein family indicates how the tuberin-hamartin complex may interact with upstream and downstream effectors, and suggests how phosphorylation-dependent regulation of the complex may be controlled.. ...

Whenever I thought about blood sugar imbalances and insulin resistance, I thought about diabetics, but never myself. I was young, active, wasnt overweight and ate what I considered to be "healthy". But truth be told my body was screaming blood sugar dysregulation for years. I didnt fit the typical mold for blood sugar issues but our outer appearance has nothing to do what is going on. Thin does not always = healthy. My family always joked I had to eat every hour or two and was easily "hangry". We thought it was funny I had to eat so much food during the day and always have snacks on me. I would get nauseous, light headed or headaches if I didnt eat on time or had to wait a little longer between meals. It was actually quite a pain because most of my life revolved around food, if I wasnt eating I was thinking about my next meal or getting a snack ready. My meals were majority carbohydrates, minimal fat and moderate protein. I was a pescatarian, not necessarily a healthy one. I was also on the ...

Perivascular epithelioid cell tumour, also known as PEComa or PEC tumour, is a family of mesenchymal tumours consisting of perivascular epithelioid cells (PECs). These are rare tumours that can occur in any part of the human body. The cell type from which these tumours originate remains unknown. Normally, no perivascular epitheloid cells exist; the name refers to the characteristics of the tumour when examined under the microscope. Establishing the malignant potential of these tumours remains challenging although criteria have been suggested; some PEComas display malignant features whereas others can cautiously be labeled as having uncertain malignant potential. The most common tumours in the PEComa family are renal angiomyolipoma and pulmonary lymphangioleiomyomatosis, both of which are more common in patients with tuberous sclerosis complex. The genes responsible for this multi-system genetic disease have also been implicated in other PEComas. Many PEComa types shows a female predominance in ...

82% of clear cell RCC have intracellular fat, which has a 90% specificity for the diagnosis of a clear cell renal cell carcinoma.. MRI is better than CT in the accurate diagnosis of a cystic lesion and it can better depict enhancement and differentiate CT-pseudo-enhancement from real enhancement.. Low T2-signal is in favor of papillary RCC or minimal fat angiomyolipoma.. High T2 is typically seen in clear cell RCC but is not specific, since it can also be seen in oncocytomas.. So again there is much overlap between benign and malignant tumors.. ...
The Carol and James Herscot Center for Children and Adults with Tuberous Sclerosis Complex was made possible through the singular generosity of Mr. and Mrs. James Herscot.. Nearly 40 years ago, Carol and Jim Herscot found themselves in a terrifying situation. Their son, Brad, began having seizures, followed by other symptoms that the Herscots now know are typical of tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC). "At the time, no one knew about this disease," Mrs. Herscot recalls. "We were so alone and so frightened. No one could answer our questions, despite our going to one specialist after another for advice and guidance.". Despite the isolation they felt, the Herscots never allowed themselves to be defeated by the unpredictable and potentially devastating TSC, nor did they waver in their dedication to their son, who today lives semi-independently. Indeed, the Herscots commitment to improving the lives of individuals with TSC and their families remains boundless, as evidenced by their extraordinary ...
Answer: B. Polypoid endometrioma. Histology: A polypoid mass is seen projecting into the urethra. The mass has both solid and cystic components. The cystic components are lined variably by cuboidal cells w/o cilia, cuboidal or columnar cells with cilia, or urothelium. The intervening stroma has the appearance of endometrial stroma with condensation around the cysts. Clusters of prominent thick walled arterioles are evident. The tumor stroma was positive for estrogen receptor, progesterone receptor, and CD10.. Discussion: A characteristic features of spindle cell tumors in the kidney is that they tend to entrap native renal tubules, which then often become cystically dilated. This occurs in monophasic synovial sarcoma, angiomyolipoma, and in mixed epithelial and stromal tumor (MEST). In all these lesions, the tubules are lined by bland cuboidal epithelium which label with PAX8. Another feature of several renal lesions is that the stroma can undergo metaplasia to ovarian-like stroma which ...

METHODS: The conventional MRI, SWI and serum cystatin C of 27 cases with DGF in nephrotransplantation center in Third Affiliated Hospital of Suzhou University from September 2014 and August 2015 were retrospectively analyzed.By contrasting conventional MRI images of transplanted kidney in DGF, the imaging manifestations of benign tumors such as cysts and angiomyolipomas were excluded on SWI images, and then making the renal cortex as the reference, if the abnormal signal lesions were found in the transplanted kidney, the location and signal intensity would be analyzed ...
The Tuberous Sclerosis Clinic at Cincinnati Childrens is one of the worlds largest Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) treatment centers, caring for children & adults from around the world.
What causes TSC?. TSC is caused by defects, or mutations, on two genes-TSC1 and TSC2. Only one of the genes needs to be affected for TSC to be present. The TSC1 gene, discovered in 1997, is on chromosome 9 and produces a protein called hamartin. The TSC2 gene, discovered in 1993, is on chromosome 16 and produces the protein tuberin.. Is TSC inherited?. Although some individuals inherit the disorder from a parent with TSC, most cases occur as sporadic cases due to new, spontaneous mutations in TSC1 or TSC2. In this situation, neither parent has the disorder or the faulty gene(s). Instead, a faulty gene first occurs in the affected individual.. What are the signs and symptoms of TSC?. ...

I definitely agree with most of the things he says. Healing the gut and following a healthy diet (minimal fat), in my experience, got rid of all my symptoms. He also talks a lot about the benefits of MSM in other articles, which is one of the reasons I started taking it as I trust his approach. Thats not to say that I didnt find benefits from taking herbs, they just didnt completely heal me, plus I think some of the strong herbs I took may have contributed to my leaky gut. Now after taking liposomal colostrum and MSM for a month, my gut feels top notch and my symptoms are totally gone. So yeah healing definitely starts from the ...

Researcher and child neurologist Mustafa Sahin will speak about the relationship between the genetic disease tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) and autism in a free public lecture on May 17 at 4:30 p.m. at the UC Davis MIND Institute, 2825 50th Street in Sacramento.
Tuberous sclerosis symptoms are caused by noncancerous growths (benign tumors), in parts of the body, most commonly in the brain, eyes, kidneys, heart, lungs and skin, although any part of the body can be affected. Symptoms can range from mild to severe, depending on the size or location of the overgrowth.. Although the signs and symptoms are unique for each person with tuberous sclerosis, they can include:. ...

Basel, April 20, 2016 - Novartis today announced results from a Phase III study showing Afinitor®* (everolimus), when used as an adjunctive therapy, significantly reduced treatment-resistant seizures associated with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) compared to placebo[1]. Patients in all treatment arms were also taking one to three anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs)[1]. The study, EXIST-3 (EXamining everolimus In a Study of TSC), is being presented during a plenary session at the 68th Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) (Abstract #32430, 9:00-11:00 a.m. PST)[1].. "Approximately 85% of individuals with TSC are affected by epilepsy at some point in their lives, yet nearly two-thirds of these patients do not achieve seizure control with available therapies, and may also experience other potentially serious consequences, such as neuropsychological, cognitive, social or learning disabilities," said Jacqueline A. French, MD, department of neurology, NYU Langone Medical Center and lead ...

The Drosophila adult midgut contains intestinal stem cells that support homeostasis and repair. We show here that the leucine zipper protein Bunched and the adaptor protein Madm are novel regulators of intestinal stem cells. MARCM mutant clonal analysis and cell type specific RNAi revealed that Bunched and Madm were required within intestinal stem cells for proliferation. Transgenic expression of a tagged Bunched showed a cytoplasmic localization in midgut precursors, and the addition of a nuclear localization signal to Bunched reduced its function to cooperate with Madm to increase intestinal stem cell proliferation. Furthermore, the elevated cell growth and 4EBP phosphorylation phenotypes induced by loss of Tuberous Sclerosis Complex or overexpression of Rheb were suppressed by the loss of Bunched or Madm. Therefore, while the mammalian homolog of Bunched, TSC-22, is able to regulate transcription and suppress cancer cell proliferation, our data suggest the model that Bunched and Madm functionally
Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) is a rare genetic disease affecting women of childbearing age. It may occur either as sporadic LAM (sLAM), or in association with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) (TSC-LAM).1 Although LAM is classically characterised by progressive, cystic destruction of the lung parenchyma, it also has extrapulmonary manifestations including chylous collections (in the abdomen and pleura), lymphadenopathy, benign tumours of the kidney (angiomyolipomas [AMLs]), and abdominopelvic cystic masses (lymphangioleiomyomas).1-4. In LAM, abnormal cells of smooth muscle lineage infiltrate the lungs and lymphatic system, and circulate through the blood.2 This has resulted in the characterisation of LAM as a benign metastatic tumour by some researchers. Accumulation of these cells in the lymphatic ducts results in obstruction and consequently chylous ascites and pleural effusions, and may also underlie the formation of lymphangioleiomyomas. The origin of the LAM cells is unknown. Predicting a ...
Introduction Lipomas are common benign soft tissue neoplasms composed of mature white adipocytes. They are the most common soft tissue mesenchymal neoplasms. However, they are relatively uncommon in the oral and maxillofacial regions. Their overall incidence in the oral cavity is thought to be between 1% and 4% of all benign oral lesions. Specific anatomic locations within the oral and maxillofacial region include the parotid region, buccal mucosae, lips, submandibular region, tongue, palate, floor- of-mouth and vestibule. Infrequent locations of orofacial lipomas include the maxillary bones, especially the mandible. Among lipomas, different subtypes can be described: simple lipoma, lipoma with chondro-osseous metaplasia, chondroid lipoma, fibrolipoma, infiltrating lipoma, angiolipoma, myolipoma of soft tissue, angiomyolipoma, spindle cell/pleomorphic lipoma (SCL/PM), myxolipoma, angiomyxolipoma, dendritic myxofibrolipoma, sialolipoma, congenital lipoma, hibernoma and atypical lipomatous tumor ...

Neurocutaneous disorders are multisystem diseases affecting skin, brain, and other organs. Epilepsy is very common in the neurocutaneous disorders, affecting up to 90% of patients with tuberous sclerosis complex and Sturge-Weber syndrome, for example. The mechanisms underlying the increased predisposition to brain hyperexcitability differ between disorders, yet some molecular pathways overlap. For instance, the mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR) signaling cascade plays a central role in seizures and epileptogenesis in numerous acquired and genetic disorders, including several neurocutaneous disorders. Potential routes for target-specific treatments are emerging as the genetic and molecular pathways involved in neurocutaneous disorders become increasingly understood. This review explores the clinical features and mechanisms of epilepsy in three common neurocutaneous disorders - tuberous sclerosis complex, neurofibromatosis type 1, and Sturge-Weber syndrome.
