Clinical presentation, diagnostic approach, and treatment of hand lipomas: a review.

Clinical presentation, diagnostic approach, and treatment of hand lipomas: a review. Acta Dermatovenerol Alp Pannonica Adriat. 2018 Sep;27(3):137-139 Authors: Lichon S, Khachemoune A Abstract Lipomas are the most common soft tissue tumors of mesenchymal origin. They can appear anywhere on the body, and in rare cases they may present on the hands. Lipomas represent approximately 1% to 3.8% of all benign tumors in the hands. Typically, lipomas present in the fifth or sixth decade of life, occurring in both men and women. Lipomas may appear anywhere on the hand, often presenting as painless, slow-growing, and mobile masses. Symptoms may develop if local neurovascular structures are compressed. Differential diagnosis includes liposarcoma and fibrolipomatous hamartoma. To assist with clinical diagnosis, ultrasound, computed tomography, or magnetic resonance imaging may be utilized. The best way to confirm diagnosis is with histopathology. The main treatment for hand lipomas is surgical excision. Postoperative recurrence is rare. PMID: 30244263 [PubMed - in process]

AbstractPurposeWell-differentiated liposarcoma, the most common subtype of liposarcoma, should be discriminated from benign lipoma. However, features on sonography for discriminating these two types of tumor have not been fully investigated. The present study was therefore aimed at clarifying differences in sonographic findings between well-differentiated liposarcoma and lipoma.MethodsThe study population comprised 23 cases of well-differentiated liposarcoma and 181 cases of lipoma. We investigated differences in sonographic appearance and pathological findings between the two types of tumor.ResultsWell-differentiated lipo...

Conclusion DFML is a rare special variant of lipoma. It is benign, and it seems to be misdiagnosed as myxoid liposarcoma prior to the admission to our hospital. The pathological histomorphology and immunohistochemistry phenotypes are helpful to the diagnosis and differential diagnosis. Given that DFML mainly occurs in the elderly, this case is rare and worthy to be reported since it occurs in children.

We present a patient with the first documented primary excision via carbon dioxide laser using an entirely transoral approach. This case suggests a new standard of management but also highlights the difficulties with investigation and diagnosis in a rare presentation. PMID: 32820661 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We describe the case of a young female diagnosed with a well-differentiated lipomatous tumor primary of thymic stroma with near cut-off result for MDM2-FISH, but positive immunohistochemical staining for the panel described above. We discuss the challenges in the diagnosis of this rare entity and a present a literature review. PMID: 32791064 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Liposarcoma is a malignant adipose tissue tumor which mainly originates from the extremities and retroperitoneum. Primary pleural liposarcoma is very rare. Spindle cell lipoma is a rare benign adipose tissue tumor. A 66 ‐year‐old male was referred to our hospital for the evaluation of a mass‐like opacity visible on chest X‐ray. Computed tomography (CT) scan revealed a well‐defined soft tissue mass with internal low attenuations and adjacent multiple nodules in the upper lobe of the left lung, and surgical excision was subsequently performed. Histopathological findings revealed adipose tissue with lipoblasts and s...

Authors: Yamagishi T, Kawashima H, Ogose A, Ariizumi T, Oike N, Sasaki T, Hatano H, Endo N Abstract Stanniocalcin-1 (STC1) is a glycoprotein that was originally identified as a calcium-regulating hormone in bony fish, and that has been shown to also critically mediate cell growth, proliferation and differentiation, etc. in humans. Increased STC1 expression levels have been previously detected in different human cancer samples, such as those isolated from lung, breast, ovary, colon, pancreas, and liver tumors; thus, the present study evaluated STC1 expression in various soft-tissue tumors. STC1 mRNA isolated from 16...

This article discusses the most common tumor and tumor-like lesions arising at the shoulder. Osseous tumors of the shoulder rank second in incidence to those at the knee joint and include benign osteochondromas and myeloma or primary malignant lesions, such as osteosarcoma or chondrosarcomas. Soft tissue tumors are overwhelmingly benign, with lipomas predominating, although malignant lesions, such as liposarcomas, can occur. Numerous tumor-like lesions may arise from the joints or bursae, due to either underlying arthropathy and synovitis (eg, rheumatoid arthritis and amyloid) or related to conditions, including tenosynovi...
