We present a case of 20-year-old woman who presented with a large pedunculated skin covered mass lesion arising from the left thigh, measuring 40  × 25 cm, with no history of pain or skin ulceration and a feeling of a lump with dragging pain in the left side of the abdomen for about 7 years. Subsequently, ultrasound, contrast-enhanced computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging of abdomen and left thigh region were carried out. The lesion was broad-based toward the left upper thigh with a central core of interspersed fat supplied by branches of the superficial and deep femoral arteries...

Some of these lesions share the expression of CD34, posing differential diagnostic problems, especially in core biopsies. Recently, antibodies against the STAT6 C-terminal, are being used in paraffin-embedded tissues as a surrogate for identifying the NAB2–STA6 fusion gene which is considered a specific molecular marke...

We report a case of a 60-year-old patient with a large right colonic mass who underwent right hemicolectomy. Histology proved morphological and immuno-histochemical features indicating fibromatosis. This desmoid tumour appeared growing from the colonic wall rather than the mesocolon, confirming a true colonic wall fibromatosis, a deep isolated form of intra-abdominal fibromatosis. Surgical resection is the treatment of choice in isolated well confirmed lesions. Multidisciplinary team approach is crucial for treatment and prognosis.ResumoOs tumores desmoides intra-abdominais são muito raros e geralmente ocorrem em pa...

Asaranti Kar, Bharat Satapathy, Kaumudee Pattnaik, Prafulla K DashJournal of Cytology 2018 35(3):179-182 Preoperative pathologic diagnosis of pelvic tumors is mandatory for proper management of patients like neoadjuvant chemotherapy and interval debulking. Currently there are many minimally invasive methods available which include fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) and trucut biopsy, mostly complimentary to each other. FNAC is a cheap, rapid and sensitive method for diagnosis of pelvic tumors. It can be done as an outpatient procedure without complications. But with it, the tissue architecture cannot be seen. Trucut b...

DiscussionTuberous sclerosis is an autosomal dominant neurocutaneous syndrome characterized by various abnormalities, including multisystemic hamartomas. Also known as Bourneville disease, named after D ésiré-Magloire Bourneville, the French physician who discovered the potato like appearance of cortical lesions in the brains of patients with this condition.Tuberous sclerosis is the second most common phakomatosis behind neurofibromatosis type 1. It has a prevalence estimated to be 1 in 6000. App roximately one third of cases of tuberous sclerosis are familial the other two thirds of cases are sporadic and du...

ConclusionOssifying fibroma is a rare lesion found in the head and neck area and it is unusual to be found in the paranasal sinuses. Thus crucial attention to the clinical, radiographical and histopathological examination should be taken for more accurate diagnosis and thus appropriate management.

Kandukuri, Navid Farahani, Catherine Barry, Julie M. Wu, David Frishberg, Bonnie BalzerAbstractMicrophthalmia-associated transcription factor (MiTF) is used as a marker of melanocytic differentiation. However, MiTF immunoexpression has also been observed in histiocytes, macrophages, smooth muscle cells and fibroblasts, which raise the concern of fibrohistiocytic (FH) lesions being misdiagnosed as melanoma based on MiTF immunoreactivity. MiTF has been known to be p...
