Incidental giant obstructed pedunculated gastric lipoma during gastrostomy: A case report
ConclusionA full endoscopic evaluation for the upper gastrointestinal tract is recommended before gastrostomy. Our reported case gives an advantage of the percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy procedure over the open gastrostomy tube placement to rule out a large asymptomatic gastric lipoma.
Chondrolipoma is a benign mesenchymal tumor that may occur anywhere in the body, such as soft tissues of the skeletal system, but is rarely seen in oral cavity. This lesion is a rare histologic variant of the lipoma with uncertain pathogenesis. A 68-year-old woman presented a nodule that was sessile, erythematous, and measured 1 cm in the region of the middle line in the upper alveolar ridge with complaint of painful symptomatology and bleeding, associated with the use of poorly adapted upper prosthesis.
ConclusionNon operative management is appropriate when gastric lipomatosis is asymptomatic without mucosal ulceration and in asymptomatic patient, regardless of the amount of gastric lipomas. Avoiding patient the morbidity of a total gastrectomy.
The resection of distal airways obstructing tumours is a traditional indication of therapeutic bronchoscopy. Lung cancer is the most frequent cause of the obstruction. Takeout procedures of the benign tumours, endobronchial carcinoids and endobronchial metastases are considerably less frequent. These tumours can be removed completely, some of them definitively. Present work analyses experience with these tumours in one tertiary bronchological centre. During the period from 1993 to 2018, 29.121 bronchoscopies were performed and 124 benign tumours, 19 typical carcinoids (G1 NET) and 35 endobronchial metastases were removed. ...
Authors: Gwak SY, Lee MK, Lee YK Abstract This is a case report of successful endoscopic resection (ER) of a bleeding duodenal lipoma. An 85-year-old woman who was diagnosed with asymptomatic subepithelial tumor of the duodenum 3 years ago visited the emergency room with hematemesis and was admitted to our hospital. Emergent esophagogastroduodenoscopy revealed bleeding from an ulcer on the superior aspect of a subepithelial tumor measuring about 20 mm in diameter, at the superior duodenal angle. The ulcer was in the active stage (A1), with a visible vessel. The bleeding was controlled by ER of the tumor using a sna...
CONCLUSION: Ileal intussusception caused by lipoma is a rare condition, which can be diagnosed with endoscopy, barium enema, and abdominal ultrasound or CT scanning, but preoperative diagnosis may be difficult. The treatment of choice is the reduction of the intussusception and the resection (laparoscopic or open) of the involved tract. KEY WORDS: Intussusception, Lipoma, Ileum, Laparoscopy, Bleeding.

We performed a laparotomy on a 55-year-old woman with the complaints of abdominal distension and genital bleeding who was found to have a uterine tumor, 17 × 16 cm in diameter. The preoperative diagnosis was a lipoma or lipoleiomyoma of the uterine corpus. However, pathological examination revealed proliferation of mature adipocytes and lipoblast-like a...
Conclusion Limited distal duodenal resection is a feasible surgical alternative to a pancreaticoduodenectomy in carefully selected patients with benign and some malignant tumours of the third and fourth part of the duodenum.
Conclusion: Granular cell tumors are infrequent and usually resemble more common lesions. Although almost always benign, the malignant form has a very poor prognosis. It is important to identify GCT preoperatively by fine-needle aspiration or core needle biopsy to improve outcome. PMID: 29548015 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

A 57-year-old man presented for screening colonoscopy. In the transverse colon, a 25-mm subepithelial lesion was noted (Figure A). The presumed soft consistency of the lesion was substantiated by a positive cushion sign on (standard-size) forceps palpation (Figure B). Given a less-prominent discoloration than expected for a lipoma, we performed bite-on-bite biopsies, and after 2 passes exposed a typical naked fat sign, providing a definitive confirmation of lipoma (Figure C). Of importance, there was no evidence for significant bleeding and no endoscopic clip treatment was warranted.
