AbstractThe fascial system is a continuum of connective tissues present everywhere throughout the body that can be locally involved in a large variety of disorders. These disorders include traumatic disorders (Morel-Lavall ée lesion, myo-aponeurotic injuries, and muscle hernia), septic diseases (necrotizing and non-necrotizing cellulitis and fasciitis), and neoplastic diseases (superficial fibromatosis, desmoid tumors, and sarcomas). The current pictorial review aims to focus on these localized disorders involving th e fasciae of the musculoskeletal system and their appearance at MRI.

ConclusionBRAF p.V600E mutations were frequent in ameloblastomas, as previously reported, but were absent in OKCs and dentinogenic ghost cell tumors. These results further confirmed the noninvolvement of BRAF in OKCs and suggested different pathogenic mechanisms involved in various odontogenic lesions.

We report a case of OF in 23  year old female with asymptomatic swelling over the left side of face for the past 3 years involving the maxilla, maxillary sinus as well as nasal cavity. Histopathology revealed it to be OF complicated by non-specific cystic degeneration. OF of jaws is an odontogenic neoplasm arising from tooth bearing areas. It occurs more commonly in women in posterior mandible region. Microscopically it shows variable mixture of osteoid bone and basophilic acellular spherules while bony trabeculae frequently demonstrate both woven and lamellar patterns. Various pathogenesis have also been highlig...

CONCLUSION:: In the deep palmar space of the hand, pathologies are closely associated with tendons, muscles, and neurovascular structures. Preoperative magnetic resonance imaging is helpful for the preoperative diagnosis, evaluating tumor extension, and successful surgical planning. Level of Evidence: IV Therapautic.

CONCLUSIONS: Given that most childhood ovarian tumours are benign, conservative surgery is considered as the first choice, being even more important in bilateral tumours. If there is a family history, it is essential to carry out molecular genetic studies, to rule out associated syndromes. PMID: 30975583 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This article gives an overview of the most important bene fits. The absorption of the laser light produces photothermal effects such as coagulation, vaporization and photoablation. The main indications in stomatology are pain alleviation and prevention of recurences in aphthae and cold sores (minor aphthae, herpes simplex), ablation of benign and irritant tissue excess (stimulus fibroma), lip and tongue band correction and soft tissue hemostasis. One great advantage is the minimal bleeding in the surgical field, which allows for optimal visibility. In addition, the CO2 laser offers high patient comfort since no primary wou...

Rationale: Fibroma of tendon sheath is a rare entity that is typically attached to the tendon sheath. Patient concerns: A 43-year-old man presented with a painful mass in his right wrist, which was initially misdiagnosed as an enchondroma. Diagnosis: Fibroma embedded into carpal bones, which exhibited lytic radiographic features similar to those of enchondroma. Excisional biopsy demonstrated spindle-shaped cells and collagen-like stroma. Interventions: The patient underwent lesion resection surgery. Outcomes: The patient recovered well and showed no signs of recurrence at 6-month follow-up. Lessons: This c...

Abstract Background: Juvenile Hyaline Fibromatosis is a rare autosomal recessive connective tissue disorder. Case Characteristics: Three year old girl with multiple facial nodules, gingival hypertrophy and multiple joint contractures. Her sibling, male child also had similar findings which was progressive and he died at 2 years. Outcome: Nodule biopsy showed extensively hyalinised dermis with PAS positivity. Message: Juvenile Hyaline Fibromatosis is a differential diagnosis for children presenting with multiple nodular lesions. PMID: 30971561 [PubMed - in process]

RobinsonAbstractMagnetic resonance imaging (MRI) guided radiation therapy is reported for the first time in a patient with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) and cardiac fibroma in the left ventricle. Stereotactic body radiation therapy was delivered in 5 fractions at a dose of 700 cGy/fraction using a 0.35 T MRI–linear acc...
