Solitary noninfiltrating angiolipoma on the finger, an unusual localization.

Solitary noninfiltrating angiolipoma on the finger, an unusual localization. Dermatol Online J. 2019 Feb 15;25(2): Authors: Karaali MG, Polat AK, Koku Aksu AE, Leblebici C, Gurel MS Abstract Angiolipoma, a subtype of lipoma, is a benign adypocytic soft tissue tumor composed of mature adipose tissue and small vascular proliferations. This entity makes up 5-17% of all lipomas. The diagnosis is made by clinical and pathological examination, ultrasonography, and/or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). It is generally an encapsulated tumor (noninfiltrative), but rarely has an infiltrative form. Angiolipoma mostly occurs on the trunk and extremities with male predominance. The forearm is the most frequent location for angiolipomas. It is very rarely seen on the fingers. Herein, we report a patient with solitary noninfiltrating angiolipoma on a finger. The patient was treated with surgical excision and no recurrence has been noted over one year of observation. PMID: 30865409 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract Synovial fat deposition, also known as lipoma arborescens, is a rare articular disorder with villous synovial proliferation, commonly seen in the knee. We explored the relationship between the degree of synovial fat deposition on the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and the severity of degenerative joint disorder, also called osteoarthritis, on plain radiography. The enrolled patients underwent MRI with a 0.4T permanent magnetic unit in a single institution over a 9-month period. The indications of MRI were chronic knee disorder of non-specific cause. Patients with minor trauma were also included. Consecu...

ConclusionsThoracic fibrolipoma in children is rare; its treatment is complete resection of the tumor. Pathological examination of the removed tissue is the gold standard for diagnosis. Early computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging examinations are helpful to determine the extent and nature of the tumor and to reduce damage of the surrounding organs. Preoperative examination of tumor markers, ultrasound-guided biopsy, and preoperative digital subtraction angiography tumor vascular embolization are important preoperative preparations to ensure surgical resection.

Rationale: Chondroid lipoma (CL) is a rare benign tumor. No relevant epidemiological reports have been published on CL, and there is a lack of uniform diagnostic and treatment criteria for the tumor. Patient concerns: Here, we report a case of CL with a mass on the left buttock for 2 weeks, and further illuminate its diagnosis and treatment. Diagnosis: The diagnosis of CL was rendered according to the pathological indices. Interventions: The tumor was resected completely under spinal anesthesia. Outcomes: The patient was followed-up for 6 months and showed no tumor recurrence or metastasis and there was resol...

To evaluate if quantifying proton density fat fraction (PDFF) would be useful in separating lipoma, atypical lipomatous tumour (ALT) and liposarcoma in the extremities and trunk. In addition, differentiating ALT versus non-classical lipomas using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-based fatty acid composition (FAC) and three-dimensional (3D) texture analysis was tested.

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.

ConclusionsIn this study, the incidence of pericallosal lipomas was 0.011% and the incidence of cisternal lipomas was 0.017%. Although rare, the knowledge of the clinical and radiological features of pericallosal and cisternal lipomas will play an important role in the accurate diagnosis and follow-up of the patient.
