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: 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.

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]

We report three cases of PJOF, in young patients whose biopsy showed the presence of psammomatoid bodies in a cellular fibrous stroma. The diagnosis of JOF indicates requirement of extensive surgery due to its locally aggressive nature.

ier C Abstract The infiltration by numerous osteoclastic giant cells is a frequent finding in bone tumors and pseudo-tumors. Pathologists must integrate clinical and radiological data to achieve a correct diagnosis in bone pathology. Benign giant-cell rich lesions of bone encompass giant cell tumor of bone, aneurysmal bone cyst, chondroblastoma, brown tumor and fibrous cortical defect/non-ossifying fibroma. Amongst malignant neoplasms, variants of conventional osteosarcoma, undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma, leiomyosarcoma and bone metastasis must be discussed. Recently, new diagnostic markers, antibodies for i...
