Lavender products associated with premature thelarche and prepubertal gynecomastia: Case reports and EDC activities.

CONCLUSIONS: We now report cases of premature thelarche that resolved upon cessation from lavender-containing fragrance exposure commonly used in Hispanic communities. The precise developmental basis for such conditions could be multifactorial. In vitro demonstration of estrogenic and anti-androgenic properties of essential oil components suggests in these cases essential oils could be considered as a possible source and supports a possible link with idiopathic prepubertal breast development. Questions remain whether lavender oil estrogenic potency is sufficient to cause these effects. PMID: 31393563 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

A 54-year-old man with mesenteric carcinoid tumor metastatic to the liver completed staging 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT demonstrating uptake in multiple hepatic lesions consistent with liver metastases with additional asymmetric increased uptake in the right greater than the left breast. Subsequent bilateral diagnostic mammogram revealed benign right greater than left gynecomastia without suspicious underlying mass. With Food and Drug Administration approval of 68Ga-DOTATATE and the increased use of this analog in neuroendocrine tumor imaging, this case illustrates a relevant example of uptake that can potentially mimic malignancy.

This study aims to compare patient characteristics, surgical outcomes, and surgical management of gynecomastia correction in AAS users versus nonusers. Methods A retrospective cohort study was performed with patients who underwent bilateral gynecomastia reduction surgery between January 2005 and August 2015 by a single surgeon at an academic hospital. Demographic data, AAS usage details, operative documentation, and follow-up outcomes were reviewed. Results A total of 964 cases were reviewed. Eleven percent (n = 105) of the patients had a history of AAS use. Compared with non-AAS users, AAS users were older at time o...
