Oral benign neoplasms: A retrospective study of 790 patients over a 14-year period.

CONCLUSION: The most common OBNs were fibroma, papilloma, fibroblastoma, lipoma and hemangioma. Overall, the OBN presented common clinical features; however, in particular cases, there are some characteristics that can lead the professionals to the correct diagnosis. Nevertheless, in general, histopathological analysis must be performed to confirm diagnosis. Intraosseous tumors and large lesions may require imaging tests to help diagnosis.

A 26-year-old male patient presented with a painless swelling on the floor of mouth. The lesion started 2 months back after an incidence of trauma and gradually kept on increasing to its present condition. On intraoral examination, a solitary, well-defined, reddish swelling of 1 cm X 1 cm in diameter was detected on the floor of the mouth (Figure 1, Black arrow). The swelling was fluctuant, non-tender, non-pulsatile, non-reducible and soft in consistency. The fluctuant nature of the swelling ruled out fibroma, lipoma, and tumor of minor salivary gland while hemangioma was eliminated because of the non-pulsatile nature of the swelling.

[Tumors affecting the temporomandibular joint - a literature review]. Bull Cancer. 2020 Oct 12;: Authors: Schlund M, Roland-Billecart T, Aubert S, Nicot R Abstract Benign and malign tumors can affect the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) as any other articulation. Nevertheless, TMJ tumors are rare and mostly benign. Their clinical expression is varied including symptomatology similar to TMJ dysfunctional disorders, otologic or neurologic pathologies. In some cases, they remain totally asymptomatic. Hence, diagnosis is difficult since the symptomatology can be misleading with TMJ dysfunctional di...

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. ...

CONCLUSION:: In the deep palmar space of the hand, pathologies are closely associated with tendons, muscles, and neurovascular structures. Preoperative magnetic resonance imaging is helpful for the preoperative diagnosis, evaluating tumor extension, and successful surgical planning. Level of Evidence: IV Therapautic.

Authors: Miyake Y, Shinozuka K, Ueki K, Teraoka J, Zama M, Ogisawa S, Shinozaki Y, Aoki J, Yanagawa K, Shimizu O, Kaneko T, Tonogi M, Ohki H Abstract To better understand the clinical features of mass lesions of the tongue, we retrospectively evaluated frequency, recurrence rate, and complications in 296 patients who had undergone surgery for such lesions. The diagnoses were fibroma (43.6%), mucous cyst (14.2%), papilloma (11.8%), hemangioma (7.8%), granuloma (6.4%), lipoma (1.4%), schwannoma (1.0%), ectopic tonsil (0.7%), and other (13.2%). Recurrence was noted in two patients (0.7%). Twenty-two patients (7.4%) de...

Discussion Neural tube defects are a group of disorders that arise during embryogenesis. They include anenephaly, exencephaly, meningmyelocoeles and encephalocoeles and other malformations including occult spinal dysraphism. Occult spinal dysraphism (OSD) has incomplete fusion of the midline elements of the spine including the bony, neural, and mesenchymal tissues but the abnormalities are covered by skin (ectodermal tissues) and therefore are not obvious. OSD has a higher risk of tethered spinal cord syndrome or other neurological/neurosurgical problems. Normally the caudal end of the spinal cord, the conus medullaris, ha...

CONCLUSION: Neoplasms of the paratesticular region affect patients of all ages, with potentially life-threatening sequelae. Awareness of the entire spectrum and meticulous histopathological examination and immunohistochemical studies are of prime importance in the diagnosis of the various lesions as these influence the mode of therapy and subsequent prognosis of the patient.
