Simultaneous resection of a gastric submucosal lipoma in the setting of bariatric surgery: A case report and review of current literature
ConclusionGastric lipoma are a rare type of gastric submucosal tumors. Size is highly variable. Observation is a reasonable approach when small and asymptomatic, but multiple surgical modalities can be utilized to remove the tumor. Careful utilization of pre-operative imaging including EUS is critical in choosing the appropriate surgery if simultaneous bariatric management is undertaken
Conclusion: Skin and soft tissue lesions are relatively common in our environment with majority being benign neoplastic lesion. PMID: 32089672 [PubMed]

Abstract An extremely rare case of fibrolipoma in the hard palate is presented and discussed with reference to the literature. An 85-year-old woman visited the Tokyo Dental College Chiba hospital in September 2016 with the chief complaint of a mass in the hard palate. The patient had first become aware of this mass several years earlier. An examination at another hospital in June 2009 resulted in a clinical diagnosis of lipoma. Regular examinations followed every 6 months until September 2014, at which time she stopped attending these appointments because there was no change. In August 2016, however, the patient r...
AbstractAnorectal malformation (ARM) is the most common symptom in VACTERL syndrome (vertebral, anal, cardiac, tracheo-esophageal fistula, renal, and limb anomalies). The association of ARM and spinal dysraphisms (DYS) is well documented. We aim to better evaluate children with VACTERL association and ARM, considering the presence or not of DYS. Between 2000 and 2015, 279 children with VACTERL associations were identified in Necker Children ’s Hospital, Paris. We identified 61 VACTERL children (22%) with ARM. A total of 52 VACTERL children with ARM were included. DYS were identified in 36/52 of cases (69.2%). A total...
DiscussionThe prevalence of adipose tumors is underestimated within hand and wrist tumors. The most common way these tumors are discovered is due to compressive neuropathy with paresthesia and/or dysesthesia. While these tumors are nearly always benign, this does not justify ignoring the opinion of the multidisciplinary tumor board or underestimating the small possibility of the lesion being a liposarcoma.Level of evidenceIV, retrospective, single-center study.
CONCLUSION: Liver nodules should be characterised with regard to underlying liver condition, MRI characteristics and contrast enhancement pattern, including hepatobiliary phase. In many cases, identification of fatty content may help narrowing the differential diagnosis. PMID: 32008550 [PubMed - in process]
Conclusion: Variants found in exon 5 of the HMGA2 gene have not been described and have an uncertain significance in the genesis of FML. Further studies, including a more significant number of affected individuals and functional analysis of the novel variants of HGMA2 gene, should be undertaken to better understand its biological role in FML.

Intracranial lipomas are rare, congenital lesions, most often located at the midline. Most hypothalamic lipomas are asymptomatic, but some cases have been associated with precocious puberty, hypothermia, heada...
