Authors: Sánchez Sevila JL, Rosas Gómez de Salazar J, Concepción Aramendía L, Vivó Devesa C Abstract The purpose of this report is to describe a case of a unilateral congenital absence of the lacrimal gland in a 7-year-old girl with ocular symptoms, no tear production and a conjunctival tumour at the supero-external angle of the right eye. The visual acuity was 20/20 in both the eyes. The right eye showed mucous secretion, corneal erosions and filaments. Anamnesis, physical examination and clinical tests ruled out systemic diseases associated with congenital alacrima, as well as r...

Mohamed A Jamaluddin, Prakash Nair, Ganesh Divakar, Jaypalsinh A Gohil, Mathew AbrahamJournal of Pediatric Neurosciences 2020 15(2):135-139An 11-month-old baby girl, with normal perinatal history, presented with a congenital lumbosacral swelling and a sacral dimple. Imaging revealed a split cord malformation (SCM) type 2 at L1–L3 with a lipomeningocoele extending intradurally and tethering both the hemicords, the conus was noted to be at L4. She underwent excision of the lipoma and detethering of the hemicords. Intraoperatively, the split cord was seen from L1 to L3 with an aberrant median vessel passing between the ...
Conclusion: Such lipoma needs extensive pre-, intra-, and postoperative planning. The goal should be decompression, rather than excision. Outcome is good with partial resection.
Gastric lipoma should be considered as a rare differential diagnosis in patients presenting with gastrointestinal bleeding. Diagnosis is mainly done by radiologic and endoscopic findings. It presents characteristic pathognomonic endoscopic signs. AbstractGastric lipoma should be considered as a rare differential diagnosis in patients presenting with gastrointestinal bleeding.

Abstract: Lipomatous metaplasia of the upper dermis is a rare phenomenon scarcely described in the literature which has always been identified in the context of inflammatory or neoplastic processes. Microscopically, it should be distinguished from pseudolipomatosis cutis, dermal lipoma, nevus lipomatosus, and focal dermal hypoplasia (Goltz syndrome). This is the first report of the histologic and ultrasound evaluation of a patient with extensive involvement and the description of the coincidental finding of an anomalous nonseptate subcutaneous tissue.
Abstract Angiolipoma, distinguishable from other lipomas by its excessive degree of vascular vessels, are rare in the head and neck and require unique management. A slow growing mass, located underneath the inferior border of the right mandibular angle of a 51-year-old female, was excised under general anesthesia. Unexpected excessive bleeding during the excision was observed and the histological specimen was diagnosed as angiolipoma. As shown in this case report, pre-operative imaging modalities have a crucial influence and are sufficient to diagnose and manage angiolipomas. The "Gold standard" treatmen...
In conclusion, we demonstrated the immunolabeling of parvalbumin in almost all PEC lesions of the kidney, but not in the epithelioid angiomyolipoma/pure epithelioid PEComa. This finding could shed light on some biological characteristics observed in the PEC lesions such as the plasticity of their cellular component. Moreover, parvalbumin may be another useful tool in the differential diagnosis among epithelioid angiomyolipoma/pure epithelioid PEComa with other renal eosinophilic tumors, such as oncocytoma and chromophobe renal cell carcinoma.
