Atypical presentation of fibroepithelial polyp: a report of two cases

ABSTRACT Fibroepithelial polyps are benign non-epithelial tumors arising from mesodermal tissue and are commonly found on the skin. They can develop on the eyelid and surrounding area and rarely appear at other sites. While most cutaneous cases are diagnosed incidentally, the lesions may be symptomatic based on their location. The etiology of fibroepithelial polyps is not fully understood but may involve trauma, chronic irritation, allergic factors, and developmental or congenital causes. Although fibroepithelial polyps are benign lesions, they can be malignant in extremely rare cases. Herein we discuss 2 cases of fibroepithelial polyp with an atypical presentation and their treatment.RESUMO P ólipos fibroepiteliais são tumores benignos não-epiteliais que surgem do tecido mesodérmico e são comumente encontrados na pele. Eles podem se desenvolver na pálpebra e na área adjacente, e raramente aparecem em outros locais. Embora a maioria dos casos cutâneos seja diagnosticada incidental mente, as lesões podem ser sintomáticas com base em sua localização. A etiologia dos pólipos fibroepiteliais não é completamente compreendida, mas pode envolver trauma, irritação crônica, fatores alérgicos e causas de desenvolvimento ou congênitas. Apesar dos pólipos fibroepiteliais ser em lesões benignas, podem ser malignos em casos extremamente raro...

This study was aimed to explore the differences between the sedation and non-sedation groups in terms of endoscopic findings, such as detection rate of gastric polyp of any size, number of detected gastric polyps, and location of the gastric polyps detected. We enrolled 10,940 patients who underwent EGD between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2016 at the Tri-Service General Hospital; among the patients, 1900 received intravenous sedation (IVS) and 9040 did not. The data reviewed included demographics, parameters of the polyp (number, size, and location), and pathology. Compared with the non-sedation group, the sedation ...

Endometrial polyps embedded in the fetal membranes have only rarely been described. A review of the English literature showed only one abstract describing this occurrence and to the best of our knowledge, there have been no other publications of this entity. Herein we present a case of a 37-yr-old woman with a history prior abortion and complicated pregnancy (type 2 diabetes mellitus and preeclampsia) who delivered by cesarean section. Although the placenta did not show hypertensive vasculopathic changes or other pathologic findings, an endometrial polyp embedded within the fetal membranes was present. Recognition of this ...

Heterotopic gastric tissue can be found throughout the intestinal tract, and when it is present in the small intestine, it can present with symptoms that include gastrointestinal bleeding, chronic abdominal pain, diarrhea, and chronic dyspepsia. This finding is incredibly rare in pediatrics, but if present, it can lead to significant morbidity and mortality. This can be especially true if a patient presents with a comorbidity of a bleeding disorder. We here present the case of a teenage male with a history of severe factor VII deficiency who was found to have iron deficiency anemia resulting in multiple blood transfusions ...

In this study, we examined whether HASPIN inhibitor CHR-6494 suppresses cancer progression in ApcMin/+ mice, a familial colon tumor disease model. Mice were treated by intraperitoneal injection of CHR-6494 for 50 days. Following the treatment period, intestinal polyps were counted and testosterone and spermatogenesis levels were observed. Intraperitoneal administration of CHR-6494 significantly inhibited intestinal polyp development and recovered body weight in ApcMin/+ mice. Although spermatogenesis was inhibited with increasing age in ApcMin/+ mice, CHR-6494 significantly improved blood testosterone levels and spermatoge...
