Authors: Neagu TP, Ţigliş M, Popescu A, Enache V, Popescu ŞA, Lascăr I Abstract Ledderhose disease or plantar fibromatosis is a rare hyperproliferative disorder of the plantar aponeurosis, clinically characterized by nodules situated especially on the medial border of the foot. It is histopathologically associated with Dupuytren's disease. This disease has some risk factors, like old age, alcohol or nicotine abuse, liver dysfunction, trauma or exposure to vibrations and autoimmune disorders, but the exact etiology is still unknown. Even though it is benign, the local manifestations can be aggressive, leading to...

AbstractThe neck structures are located very superficially and are therefore easy to explore by ultrasound examination. Ultrasonography is crucial for the detection of neck pathologies in children. High-frequency probes (10 –15 MHz) are used for the ultrasound examination on the patient lying in supine decubitus and with their neck stretched out. The outcome of the exam depends mainly on the child’s cooperation—hence the need for warm sonographic gel and a comfortable cushion to place under the patient’s shoul ders. The complete scan of the neck includes the evaluation of the thyroid and saliva...

AbstractDesmoid-type fibromatosis (DF), also known as aggressive fibromatosis, is a locally aggressive benign fibroblastic neoplasm that can infiltrate or recur but cannot metastasize. It is rare, with an estimated annual incidence of two to four new cases per million people. Most DFs occur sporadically, but it may also be associated with the hereditary syndrome familial adenomatous polyposis. Treatment is necessary when the disease is symptomatic, especially in case of compression of critical structures. When possible, surgical resection is the treatment of choice; however, recurrence is common. Due to the high rate of re...

Two female chinchillas were presented with reduced appetite and production of small fecal pellets. Physical examination of both chinchillas revealed a reduced vaginal membrane, bloody vaginal discharge, and a palpable mass in the caudal abdomen. Radiographic images revealed soft tissue masses in the caudal abdomen of both animals. In addition, the first case was examined by ultrasound, which identified two cystic masses, both originating from one of the uteri. Both chinchillas were euthanized due to progressive clinical deterioration with both animals undergoing postmortem examinations.

We present a case of 20-year-old woman who presented with a large pedunculated skin covered mass lesion arising from the left thigh, measuring 40  × 25 cm, with no history of pain or skin ulceration and a feeling of a lump with dragging pain in the left side of the abdomen for about 7 years. Subsequently, ultrasound, contrast-enhanced computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging of abdomen and left thigh region were carried out. The lesion was broad-based toward the left upper thigh with a central core of interspersed fat supplied by branches of the superficial and deep femoral arteries...

Asaranti Kar, Bharat Satapathy, Kaumudee Pattnaik, Prafulla K DashJournal of Cytology 2018 35(3):179-182 Preoperative pathologic diagnosis of pelvic tumors is mandatory for proper management of patients like neoadjuvant chemotherapy and interval debulking. Currently there are many minimally invasive methods available which include fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) and trucut biopsy, mostly complimentary to each other. FNAC is a cheap, rapid and sensitive method for diagnosis of pelvic tumors. It can be done as an outpatient procedure without complications. But with it, the tissue architecture cannot be seen. Trucut b...

Authors: Lepage J, Merlot B, Lucot JP, Subtil D Abstract When bulky fibroids are discovered during pregnancy, they can become acutely complicated. The question of their resection thus arises. The authors report a case of a woman who was diagnosed at eight weeks' gestation by ultrasound and then by MRI, with a uterine fibroma measuring 22x12x15 cm. PMID: 29944245 [PubMed]

Discussion: Non-ossifying fibroma tend to regress as the skeleton matures. LIPUS might stimulate bone ossification and shorten the duration of NOF healing. Minor fracture or non-invasive drilling will help osteogenesis and NOF healing. Accepted April 10, 2018 Copyright © 2018 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
