Clinicopathologic analysis of angiomyofibroblastoma of the female genital tract. (1/28)

OBJECTIVE: To study the clinicopathologic features and immunoprofile of angiomyofibroblastoma (AMF) with emphasis on differential diagnosis. METHODS: Seven vulvar, two vaginal and one perineal angiomyofibroblastomas were evaluated by light microscopy and immunohistochemistry. The immunohistochemical studies were performed on paraffin-embedded sections using the standard ABC method with a panel of antibodies. RESULTS: Angiomyofibroblastoma predominantly occurred in middle-aged women in the genital region, especially in the superficial area of the vulva. Clinically, most of the tumors presented as slowly growing painless masses and were often diagnosed as Bartholin's gland cysts. Histologically, the tumors were all well-circumscribed and characterized by alternating hypocellular and hypercellular areas with abundant thin-walled blood vessels. The tumor cells were bland and spindle-shaped or epithelioid and tended to concentrate around the vessels or cluster in small nests. Immunohistochemically, the tumor cells expressed vimentin and estrogen receptor protein in all 10 cases and desmin in 9 cases. Three cases showed weak or focal immunoreactivity to alpha-smooth muscle actin and muscle specific actin. All ten patients were treated by local excision. Follow-up showed a benign course with no signs of recurrence. CONCLUSIONS: Angiomyofibroblastoma is a distinctive neoplasm that has a propensity to occur in the female genital tract. Recognition of this entity is important to avoid misdiagnosis with other vulvar angiomyxoid neoplasms.  (+info)

Characterization of focal hepatic lesions with SPIO-enhanced MRI. (2/28)

AIM: To evaluate the value of superparamagnetic iron oxide (SPIO) enhanced MRI in characterizing focal hepatic lesions. METHODS: Forty-three patients (32 men,11 women, mean age 51 years, age range 25-74 years) with previously identified focal hepatic lesions were enrolled into this study. All the patients underwent plain, Gd-DTPA enhanced MRI and the SPIO enhanced MRI 1-7 d later. The surgico-pathologic diagnosis was aestablished in 31 cases and the diagnosis in other 12 cases was made on the basis of clinical findings and biochemical tests. The signal changes of lesions were analyzed and the CNRs of lesion-to-liver were measured before and after SPIO enhancement. The data were analyzed by paired t test. RESULTS: Focal hepatic lesions included primary hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC,n=22), hemangioma (n=5), cyst (n=4), metastases (n=5), cirrhotic nodule (n=4), focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH, n=5) and other miscellaneous lesions (n=6). After SPIO enhancement HCC demonstrated iso- or slight hyperintensity on T1WI and moderate hyperintersity on T2WI, hemangioma showed moderate hyperintensity on T1WI and obvious hyperintensity on T2WI, the SI of cyst had no change either on T1WI or on T2WI, cirrhotic nodules revealed iso-intensity on T2WI, and the SI of FNH decreased significantly on T2WI. No specific manifestations were found in the other 6 miscellaneous lesions after SPIO enhancement. CONCLUSION: SPIO enhanced-MRI can improve the characterization confidence for diagnosis of focal hepatic lesions.  (+info)

Lack of CD34 positive stromal cells within angiomyomas (vascular leiomyomas). (3/28)

AIMS: To investigate the role of CD34 positive stromal cells in the morphogenesis and tumour growth regulation of angiomyomas (vascular leiomyomas). METHODS: Histochemical analysis using monoclonal antibodies to CD34 and CD31 was performed in 10 angiomyomas and their adjacent soft tissue. RESULTS: CD34 positive stromal cells were not seen within the tumour tissue; the thick walled vessels within the tumours lacked CD34 positive stromal cells. In contrast, bundles of CD34 positive stromal cells were detected at the tumour border of all of the angiomyomas and in the adventitial tissue of the surrounding normal vessels. CONCLUSIONS: The lack of CD34 positive stromal cells within an angiomyoma is associated with the characteristic morphology of an angiomyoma.  (+info)

Angioleiomyoma of the Achilles tendon. (4/28)

Angioleiomyoma, a relatively rare tumor of smooth muscle origin, has been reported in many anatomical sites. We present a patient who was referred with a diagnosis of nodular Achilles tendinopathy. At exploration, the mass was excised, and histopathology revealed it to be an angioleiomyoma. Tumoral masses should form part of the differential diagnosis of a subcutaneous lesion on an extremity, particularly the lower limb.  (+info)

Spontaneously ruptured uterine angioleiomyoma. (5/28)

Angioleiomyoma is an uncommon type of leiomyoma of the uterus that originates from smooth muscle cells and contains thick-walled vessels. A 45-year-old woman with the complaint of lower abdominal pain was admitted to the hospital. In the operation a ruptured, bleeding uterine tumor was seen. She underwent total hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. On pathologic examination of the specimen, the tumor was diagnosed as angioleiomyoma. Here, an unusual clinical presentation of uterine angioleiomyoma was reported.  (+info)

Giant angioleiomyoma in extremity: report of two cases. (6/28)

Angioleiomyomas are smooth muscle tumors that occur most often in the extremities and are usually less than 2 cm in diameter. We present 2 case reports of giant angioleiomyoma. Case 1 was a 51-year-old woman with a 5-year history of a slowly growing mass 12x10 cm in diameter in the right posterior thigh. The tumor was larger than any previously reported. Case 2 was a 72-year-old man with an 8-year history of a slowly growing mass 6x6 cm in diameter in the left palm. The tumor was unique in that it grew to a giant size in the hand of the elderly patient. Magnetic resonance imaging of both cases confirmed the tumors' presence in the subcutis. T1-weighted images showed homogenous signal isointense to muscle. On T2-weighted images, areas of hyperintensity and hypointensity intermingled. Three-dimensional gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography showed rapid initial enhancement followed by a gradual increase in enhancement, suggesting that the tumors were rich in vessels. Microscopic examination revealed numerous vascular channels embedded within a huge smooth muscle component.  (+info)

Angioleiomyoma of the small intestine - a rare cause of gastrointestinal bleeding. (7/28)

BACKGROUND: Benign tumors are a rare cause of gastrointestinal hemorrhage of which angioleiomyomas constitute a very small minority. They have been reported in literature to present with volvulus, bleeding or intussusceptions. CASE PRESENTATION: An interesting case of a patient presenting with gastrointestinal bleeding from an underlying angioleiomyoma is discussed along with its management options. CONCLUSION: Angioleiomyoma though rare can be managed successfully by surgical and/or minimally invasive endovascular procedures.  (+info)

Angioleiomyomas are benign soft tissue tumors first described by Stout AP [3]. Such tumors originate from vascular smooth muscle (tunica media) [4] and comprise around 5% of all soft tissue tumors, of which tumors involving the upper arm represent ,1% [2]. Angioleiomyomas usually present at 40-60 years of age, in female patients. The lower extremities are involved in more than 2/3 of cases [2]. A benign nodule is ,2 cm in size [5] with pain as the presenting symptom in around 50% of cases [5]. These are well-circumscribed encapsulated tumors usually round or oval in shape. Microscopically, the lesion consists of numerous fine blood vessels of varying size surrounded by smooth muscle bundle [6]. The characteristic spindle-shaped cells have elongated cigar-like nuclei and eosinophilic cytoplasm. IHC results of spindle cells will be positive for SMA and vimentin, while endothelial cells in the vessel will stain positive for CD 34. It is postulated that the presence of neural elements is responsible ...

Angiomyofibroblastoma is a rare, usually small benign mesenchymal tumor that occurs in vulvar lesions of premenopausal women. A case of angiomyofibroblastoma that arose as a unique pedunculated and particularly large mass in the left vulva of a 48-year-old woman is presented herein. The patient had been aware of a gradually enlarged mass of 7 years duration without any other gynecological symptoms or signs. The maximum dimension of the tumor measured 11 cm. The resected tumor was well circumscribed with a bulging and glistening cut surface. Histological examination revealed an admixture of irregularly distributed hypercellular and hypocellular areas with spindled, plump spindled, or plasmacytoid stromal cells and abundant venular or capillary-sized vessels. Stromal cells characteristically cluster around delicate vessels within an edematous to collagenous matrix. In the present case, intralesional adipose tissue was present throughout the tumor. There was no significant nuclear atypia, and ...
Sonographically, AMFB has been reported to be well demarcated with inhomogeneous echogenicity and multiple hypoechoic areas within an echogenic stroma [12]. Wang and coworkers assessed 72 perineal tumors, two among which represented AMFB and were characterized as solid cystic masses on the basis of ultrasonography [13]. In contrast to these descriptions, we found the tumor in our patient to be of homogeneous, medium echogenicity without solid cystic features (see Additional file 1). Retrospectively, the obtained MR images did not add much information to what was already known based on the ultrasound studies.. To date, the exact pathogenesis of AMFB is not clear. Because many tumors express estrogen and progesterone receptors, it is likely that these hormones play a crucial role in the pathogenesis of AMFB. Indeed, these tumors almost exclusively occur in women of reproductive age; two cases of postmenopausal women receiving tamoxifen therapy have been reported [14, 15]. Because many of the ...

This graphic depicts the evolutionary process of shallow lightning and ammonia-water hailstones called mushballs. An anvil-shaped thunderstorm cloud originates about 40 miles (65 kilometers) below Jupiters visible cloud deck. Powered by water-based moist convection, the cloud generates strong updrafts that move liquid water and water ice particles upward. About 12 miles (19 kilometers) up, temperatures are so low that all of the water particles turn to ice. Still climbing, the ice particles cross a region located about 14 miles (23 kilometers) below the upper clouds, where temperatures are between minus 121 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 85 degrees Celsius) and minus 150 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 100 degrees Celsius), (depicted as green-hashed layer). At that point, ammonia vapor in the atmosphere acts like an antifreeze, melting the water-ice crystals, transforming them into ammonia-water liquid droplets which then grow and gather a solid icy shell to become mushballs. Once big enough, these ...

Cutaneous leiomyomas are divided into three subsets: (1) solitary or multiple piloleiomyomas originating from the arrector pili muscles; (2) genital leiomyomas originating from the mammillary, dartoic, or labial/vulvar muscles; and (3) angioleiomyomas, originating from vascular smooth muscle. Most leiomyomas are acquired; however, familial inheritance patterns have been described. Especially noteworthy are patients with multiple piloleiomyomas. Starting in early adulthood, these patients present with increasing numbers of tumors, developing as many as 100-1,000 lesions. Transmission appears to be autosomal dominant with variable penetrance.2 Women with multiple piloleiomyomas may also develop uterine leiomyomas, an entity termed multiple cutaneous and uterine leiomyomatosis (also known as familial leiomyomatosis cutis et uteri or Reed syndrome).2 In addition, some families with multiple cutaneous and uterine leiomyomatosis have been shown to cluster renal cell cancer, and this has been termed ...
In this study, we have shown the presence of ET-1-positive stromal cells and pp-ET-1 mRNA-expressing cells and demonstrated their different distributions and relative frequencies in normal control appendix, histologically normal appendix, and inflamed appendix. In particular, a subgroup of histologically normal appendixes from patients with a clinical diagnosis of acute appendicitis had an increased number of ET-1-positive stromal cells and elevated pp-ET-1 mRNA expression, similar to the inflamed appendix. However, in this subgroup of histologically normal appendixes, there were more immunoreactive cells in the lamina propria than in the submucosa and muscularis, whereas the converse was true of inflamed appendix (more immunoreactive cells in the muscularis and submucosa than in the lamina propria). The lower incidence of positive cells in the mucosa of inflamed appendixes may be attributed to partial or complete destruction of the lamina propria by the inflammatory process.. Furthermore, our ...

A 58 year old man without any significant previous history was seen for a slow-growing subcutaneous soft tissue mass in the gluteal fold of 2 years evolution. The lesion was surgically excised with clear margins. The gross specimen measured 7.5 x 6.0 x 4.3 cm and showed a well-circumscribed but unencapsulated mass 6.0 cm. in greatest diameter with a yellow-gray soft and glistening lobulated cut surface. There was no evidence of hemorrhage or necrosis. ...
Pleomorphic lipoma is an uncommon variant of lipoma, which microscopically may resemble a liposarcoma. However, it is a slow-growing and well-circumscribed lesion with a benign behavior.

Background Inflammatory pseudotumor is a rare, benign entity characterized histologically as a well-circumscribed, reactive fibroinflammatory process. The liver is a common site of involvement. While its precise etiology is unknown, it is postulated to arise as the result of an exaggerated reaction to a prior intraabdominal infectious or inflammatory process. Clinical and imaging features are non-specific, with the diagnosis often made by exclusion only after extensive laboratory and surgical evaluations. Nonetheless, this entity should be considered in the workup of hepatic masses to avoid unnecessarily aggressive intervention since most cases resolve spontaneously or with conservative management. ...

Leiomyomas of deep soft tissue are extremely rare and should only be diagnosed following adherence to stringent histological criteria, namely, the absence of nuclear atypia and of coagulative tumor necrosis. Whether extremely low counts of, or even any, mitotic activity are acceptable when making a diagnosis of leiomyoma in deep soft tissue sites is controversial. The morphology and immunophenotype of smooth muscle tumors in deep soft tissue are similar to their counterparts irrespective of topography. It is interesting to note that leiomyomas of deep soft tissue (extremity and retroperitoneum) are often hyalinized/sclerosed and calcified. However, the prediction of their behavior and correct codification is dependent on thorough, meticulous search for mitoses and necrosis. Leiomyomas of deep soft tissue in the extremity should be devoid of mitoses and “significant” cytological atypia. An occasional larger, slightly pleomorphic cell in the midst of bland spindle cells, can be regarded as

CLINICAL HISTORY AND IMAGING STUDIES. A 25-year-old, previously healthy woman presented with a 3-year history of lumbago with radiation to the right lower extremity and was admitted to our hospital. Pain was of mechanical type and responded well to rest. Complete neurological examination was normal. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed two well-circumscribed isolated intradural masses at levels L2-L3 and S1-S2. One at level L2-L3 measured 3.2 cm in its longest axis. The other extending from S1-S2 measured 2.2 cm in its long axis. Both masses were heterogeneous in T2 and strongly enhanced after gadolinium injection (Figures 1a, 1b,1c). No other lesions were identified elsewhere on craniospinal axis by MRI. Both masses were completely resected. The patient was discharged ten days later. The MRI performed 10 months after surgery showed no recurrence of the tumors.. ...

Although resistin was recently found to modulate insulin resistance in preclinical models of type II diabetes and obesity, recent studies also suggested that resistin has proinflammatory properties. We examined whether the human-specific variant of resistin affects neutrophil activation and the severity of LPS-induced acute lung injury. Because human and mouse resistin have distinct patterns of tissue distribution, experiments were performed using humanized resistin mice that exclusively express human resistin (hRTN +/-/-) but are deficient in mouse resistin. Enhanced production of TNF-α or MIP-2 was found in LPS-treated hRtn+/-/- neutrophils compared with control Rtn-/-/- neutrophils. Expression of human resistin inhibited the activation of AMPactivated protein kinase, a major sensor and regulator of cellular bioenergetics that also is implicated in inhibiting inflammatory activity of neutrophils and macrophages. In addition to the ability of resistin to sensitize neutrophils to LPS ...
