Resection of Gingival Fibromatosis with High-power Laser
AbstractOssifying fibroma is a benign osteogenic mesenchymal tumor that is classified in the fibro-osseous lesions. Fibro-osseous lesions contain minerals, blood vessels, and giant cells that have the same radiographic and pathologic features but have different clinical behaviors, and were replaced with the normal bone. These lesions include fibrous dysplasia, cemento-osseous dysplasia, and ossifying fibroma. Juvenile ossifying fibroma is a type of uncommon and has invasive behavior, high incidence and occurs in young men, especially in maxilla, and is different from the type of adult in age, location, and clinical behavio...
Akshay Gopinathan Nair, Hemal Kenia, Indumati Gopinathan, Siddharth V Mehta, Vinod C MehtaIndian Journal of Ophthalmology 2018 66(5):699-701 A 56-year-old male patient presented with a slow-growing, elevated, smooth, white corneal mass. The mass was excised by performing an alcohol-assisted keratoepitheliectomy and sent for histopathological examination. Subepithelially, closely packed spindle cells in “feather-stitched” or storiform pattern were seen. Immunohistochemically, the cells stained negatively for CD-34 and S-100 and focal positivity was seen for vimentin. Based on the morphology and immunochemical s...
We report an unusual case of a calcifying aponeurotic fibroma with diffuse intra-articular involvement of the carpal joints in a 59-year-old female. Radiographs and computed tomography scans revealed a large lobulated soft tissue mass with multiple stippled calcifications around the carpal joints and numerous erosions of the second to fifth carpometacarpal and intercarpal joints. Magnetic resonance imaging showed diffuse multinodular synovial proliferation with inhomogeneous hypo- to isointense signal intensity on T1-weighted images, inhomogeneous hypointense to hyperintense signal intensity on T2-weighted images, and inho...
Conclusions Histomorphometric analysis with Toluidine blue may reduce diagnostic errors of OF and FD.
Conclusions: Our findings suggest that macrophages are involved in the pathogenesis and the variation of microscopic features of oral reactive lesions. However, further clinical studies should be conducted to identify the biological process behind macrophages and the molecular interactions of these cells, with the ultimate aim of suggesting a new potential therapeutic target for these lesions. We found that eosinophils were not involved in the fibrotic process and the variation of microscopic features in oral reactive lesions. Our results showed that peripheral giant-cell granulomas highly demonstrated histiocytic characteristics.
Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is an autosomal dominant inherited disease characterized by systemic hamartoma and diverse systemic features. TSC1 and TSC2 are the causative genes, and mental retardation, epileptic seizures, and facial angiofibroma develop in many patients with the disease. The case of a patient with TSC who developed a central odontogenic fibroma of the mandible is reported here. The patient was a 21-year-old woman who was referred with a swelling of the labial gingiva in the region of the right lower lateral incisor and canine.
Conclusion Preoperative embolization is useful in reduction of intraoperative blood loss in tumors at shoulder and pelvic girdles. The technique is considered curative method in inaccessible lesions of pelvic and shoulder girdles with multiple interlacing vascular anastomosis.
Abstract Ovarian fibroma with minor sex cord element (MSCE) is a rare tumor. The increased estrogen production due to the presence of MSCE and/or luteinized thecal cells within fibroma can be a risk factor for endometrial hyperplasia or carcinoma. PMID: 29676374 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: COFs tended to exhibit well-defined margins and preserved continuity of the overlying bone cortex. COFs were usually homogeneous, whereas JPOFs and JTOF were always heterogeneous. Target-like appearance was one of the characteristics of OFs, but it was observed in both COF and JPOF. PMID: 29595323 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion We experienced a case of retroperitoneal desmoid-type fibromatosis that involved a unilateral ureter after gynaecologic surgery.
