We report a minimally invasive, extra-amniotic approach, technically similar to cordocentesis, of microcoil embolization of the feeding vessel. These percutaneously placed microcoils initiate clot formation at the site of insertion and are unable to migrate through the tumor, thereby minimizing fetal harm by downstream embolic phenomena. Intervention at 26 and 22 weeks resulted in intraoperative fetal loss in the former and vaginal delivery at term of a healthy neonate in the latter. Preoperative, intraoperative, and placental findings are highlighted. The ease and safety of this procedure may alter the risk–benefit ...

Conclusion &recommendationThe conclusion of our study was that aggressive fibromatosis is more prevalent in children below 15 years of age and disease burden is higher in male gender. Positive margins after surgery indicate a high risk for disease recurrence therefore; primary surgery with negative margins is the treatment of choice for children with AF. However, we recommend that multicenter trials should be conducted in the future to clarify the role of adjuvant treatment for patients with pediatric AF.

Tuberous sclerosis complex is a genetic multisystem disorder characterized by widespread hamartomas in several organs, including the brain, heart, skin, eyes, kidney, lung, and liver [1]. Major clinical features in the 2012 International Tuberous Sclerosis Complex Diagnostic Criteria include hypomelanotic macules, angiofibromas, ungual fibromas, shagreen patch, retinal hamartomas, cortical dysplasias, subependymal nodules, subependymal giant cell astrocytoma (SEGA), cardiac rhabdomyoma, lymphangioleiomyomatosis and angiomyolipomas [2].

We describe the course of a child from the age of 1 year until 4 years 10 months who had primary tooth eruption failure and was treated with dental methods. Although primary teeth expected to spontaneously erupt were followed, there were several on the left side that remained unerupted. We performed a left maxillary and mandibular gingivectomy to closely examine the cause of eruption delay and tooth germ dislocation, as well as attempt to induce eruption of the primary teeth. Based on histopathological results, the diagnosis was fibroma. Surgical procedures did not result in clear improvement of eruption failure. In order ...

In conclusion, this study demonstrated that LEF1 may be a useful marker in the differential diagnosis of DTF in certain contexts. However, caution should be exercised since LEF1 positivity can also be seen in scars.

AbstractMany cancer predisposition syndromes are preceded or accompanied by a range of typical skin signs. Gorlin syndrome is a rare multisystem inherited disorder which can predispose to basal cell carcinomas (BCCs), childhood medulloblastomas in addition to various developmental abnormalities; the majority of cases are due to mutations in thePTCH1 gene. Approximately 5% of cases have been attributed to a mutation in theSUFU gene. Certain phenotypic features have been identified as being more prevalent in individuals with aSUFU mutation such as childhood medulloblastoma, infundibulocystic BCCs and trichoepitheliomas. Rece...

AbstractFamilial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) is usually caused by germline mutations in the adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) gene. The classic form is characterized by hundreds to thousands of adenomas in the colorectum and early onset colorectal cancer (CRC) if left untreated. FAP is also associated with multiple extra-colonic manifestations such as gastroduodenal polyps, osteomas, epidermoid cysts, fibromas and desmoids. Most desmoid tumours in FAP patients occur intra-abdominally. Approximately 15 –20% of theAPC mutations are de novo mutations. Somatic mosaicism has been reported in some sporadic cases of polyposi...

CONCLUSIONS.—: The myofibroblastic variant of dedifferentiated liposarcoma is an uncommon and underrecognized sarcoma with several important differential diagnoses, and likely represents the major subset of aggressive retroperitoneal tumors that may have been misdiagnosed as desmoid-type fibromatosis, inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor, or another type of sarcoma in the past.
