Intraosseous Leiomyoma of the Jaw in an Adolescent
The current status and future potential targets of non –18F-2-fluoro-2-deoxy-d-glucose (FDG) PET/computed tomography (CT) in 3 major gynecologic malignancies are discussed. Estrogen receptor–based 16alpha-18F-fluoro-17beta-estradiol (18F-FES) PET/CT has been investigated in (a) Uterine malignancies (both endometrial and myometrial pathologies) and ( b) ovarian carcinoma. For uterine tumors, FDG/FES standardized uptake value and/or uptake ratio showed a positive correlation with malignant transformation (ie, endometrial carcinoma and uterine sarcoma) and higher malignant grades, whereas higher 18F-FES uptake was...
Conclusions UAE is safe and effective in patients with PS leiomyomas even for high-risk cases (stalk diameter < 25% of diameter of leiomyoma). PS leiomyoma should not be considered a contraindication for UAE.
AbstractEsophageal leiomyoma (EL) is rare but still the most common benign tumor of the esophagus. Extra-mucosal enucleation (EME) is the treatment of choice. Many recent reports have favored esophageal resection for giant Esophageal leiomyomas (ELs). The consequence of esophageal resection is well known and it would be radical to consider it as a preferred treatment for giant EL since most of them are still benign. We share case series of five giant ELs managed by EME, avoiding a mucosal breach and hence avoiding potentially morbid esophageal resections.
Uterine leiomyomas are the most common tumors of the genital tract of women of reproductive age . However, prolapsed uterine leiomyoma is found in about 2.5% of uterine surgical specimens , moreover it is known that pelvic masses are risk factors for pelvic organ prolapse . Nevertheless, the association of a huge infected necrotic submucosal leiomyoma with advanced uterovaginal prolapse is extremely rare and we would like to add the image of a case to the literature.
Uterine leiomyoma is a common benign tumour, and a risk factor for various complications during pregnancy and peripartum period. Peripartum haemorrhage is the most critical complication that can cause maternal death. Although the relationship of leiomyoma and peripartum haemorrhage has been indicated, little is known about the characteristics of leiomyoma as predictors for massive haemorrhage in caesarean delivery.
Authors: Moulla A, Magdy N, El-Bahrawy M Abstract Ovarian smooth muscle tumours are rare. Notable myxoid change in smooth muscle tumours is uncommon, and raises diagnostic issues that need to be considered on evaluating a spindle cell lesion with notable myxoid change. There is only one case of myxoid leiomyoma of the ovary previously reported. We here report a case of ovarian leiomyoma with areas of myxoid stroma and discuss the relevant differential diagnosis and histological features to be assessed in such a lesion.

Conclusions The use of clinical parameters and multiparametric MRI as predictive factors was beneficial for diagnosing uterine sarcoma preoperatively. These findings could be helpful for guiding treatment decisions.
We report a case of a 55-year-old female with segmental tender papulonodular lesions suggestive of leiomyoma associated with uterine leiomyomas and unilateral renal cyst. The case is reported here for its rarity and uncommon association with asymptomatic benign renal cyst.
