A Case of Fibrolipoma of the Hard Palate.

A Case of Fibrolipoma of the Hard Palate. Bull Tokyo Dent Coll. 2020 Feb 20;: Authors: Hayashi K, Yamada S, Onda T, Shibahara T 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 realized that the tumor was increasing in size. Although there was no pain, awareness of a foreign body in the oral cavity when eating or talking was increasing, so she decided to visit our clinic for detailed examination and treatment. At this point, the mass extended from the center to the left side of the hard palate. It measured 15 mm along the major axis, and had a clear border; nearly spherical, its surface was smooth and glossy, and was of a slightly yellowish color. The mass was painless, elastic, and soft. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging revealed a tumorous lesion. Based on a clinical diagnosis of lipoma, it was subsequently excised under general anesthesia in January 2017. The tumor lay under...

Solitary plasmacytoma is a rare form of plasma cell neoplasm defined by local neoplastic accumulation of monoclonal plasma cells in the absence of systemic proliferative plasma cell disease. In this case report, a 65-year-old female with remote past medical history of papillary thyroid cancer presented with shoulder pain and radiographs showing an aggressive osteolytic lesion presumed to represent an osseous metastasis. The subsequent MRI and CT examinations demonstrated diffuse intralesional macroscopic fat without a nonlipogenic soft tissue component or focal, nodular mass-like enhancement.

ConclusionAdrenal lipomatous tumors are uncommon but with the increase use of imaging modalities their detection has increased. Further studies are needed to establish guidelines in the management of these tumors, especially that they can mimic malignant conditions.

Intracranial lipomas are often associated with malformations of the brain such as dysgenesis of the corpus callosum, but rarely with vascular malformations. A man presented with left-sided facial pain at the age of 31. He developed left oculomotor nerve palsy at the age of 38 years and was referred...

Authors: Theermann R, Ohlmeier M, Hartwig CH, Wolff M, Krenn V, Liewen C, Citak M, Gehrke T Abstract INTRODUCTION: Soft tissue swelling of the knee joint can be caused by many diseases. Lipomas are one of the most reasonable differential diagnoses we have to consider. Therefore, we now present the uncommon case of a Lipoma arborescens (LA) and differentiate it from a quite similar manifesting spindle cell lipoma as follows. CASE REPORT: A 49-years old patient reports about progressive knee pain for four years and observes an increasing joint swelling. This swelling is a soft tissue, shiftable tumour, not painfu...

ConclusionsA 15-year-old Caucasian male was referred to the oral and maxillofacial radiology clinic for radiologic evaluation of a left posterior mandibular radiolucency. The patient complained of pain at the site. His medical and dental histories was positive for biopsy of multiple epidermoid cysts, a fibrous tissue mass on the lower back, and 2 odontomas. Thus far, the patient had not been identified to be at risk for Gardner syndrome. Panoramic and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) radiographs were made and showed nonuniform hyperdensities throughout the jaws, impacted teeth, and a well-defined, multilocular, radiolu...

ConclusionsWe present a rare case of an embryological “collision” of an intramedullary dermoid cyst associated with filar lipoma underlining the spectrum of intradural pathologies in spinal dysraphism. Surgical management is creative in these circumstances and multimodal. Our surgical management shows that the use of endoscopes can be effective in the surgical removal of long sectional spinal dermoid cysts.

CONCLUSION: The treatment of an os calcis lipoma should be individualized, depending on the symptoms, the location and size of the lesion. Surgeons, electing to proceed with bone grafting, should consider the probability of bone graft resorption. PMID: 31360644 [PubMed]
