Epub 2021 Jun 30.ABSTRACTLeiomyoma is the commonest benign mesenchymal tumor of the uterus, which can be developed at any site where smooth muscle cells are found. The broad ligament is the most common and ovary is one of the rarest extrauterine sites, accounting for 0.5-1% of all benign ovarian tumors. Herein, we report a case of ovarian leiomyoma in a perimenopausal female, clinically presented with heavy menstrual bleed, radiologically diagnosed as subserosal uterine fibroid. Intraoperatively, it was considered as ovarian fibroma but fin...

The tumor is developing retroperitoneally, 2cm from the left side of the uterus independently of it and the ipsilateral ovary. AbstractLeiomyomas may develop at extra-uterine locations and pose diagnostic dile mmas. This is a case of a fibroma originating from the left round ligament presenting as a symptomatic inguinal hernia.

Expert Rev Clin Pharmacol. 2021 Feb 22. doi: 10.1080/17512433.2021.1894128. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTINTRODUCTION: Calcium channel blockers (CCB) are commonly used for cardiovascular diseases. The evidence supporting the use of CCB in dermatology is mostly anecdotal and limited to case reports or small case series.AREAS COVERED: This review article is divided into two parts. The first part discusses the therapeutic use of CCB in dermatology. The second part focuses on mucocutaneous adverse reactions due to the administration of CCB.EXPERT OPINION: The use of CCB in dermatology is mainly based on its properties as a va...

Conclusion Non-epithelial ovarian tumors were benign in the majority of cases, and the malignant caseswere diagnosed at initial stages with good prognosis. Themeasurements of CA125, HE4, and CEA serum levels were not useful in the preoperative diagnosis of these tumors.Resumo Objetivo Avaliar o papel das caracter ísticas clínicas e a medida pré-operatória dos níveis séricos de CA125, HE4, e CEA em mulheres com tumores de ovário não epiteliais benignos e malignos. Métodos Cento e dezenovemulheres consecutivas comtumores ovarianos de células germinativas, ...

Abstract Calcifying fibrous tumor (CFT) is a rare mesenchymal lesion that has been documented throughout the gastrointestinal tract. Gastrointestinal CFTs may occur at virtually any age, with a predilection for adults and for females. They occur most commonly in the stomach and the small and large intestines. CFTs are most often found incidentally, cured by local resection, and have a low risk of recurrence. Histology shows three characteristic features: Spindle cell proliferations within a densely hyalinized stroma, scattered calcifications, and lymphoplasmacytic inflammation. CFTs are immunoreactive for CD34, vi...

Minimal-access myomectomy is overall considered as gold standard in symptomatic fibroma [1]. In order to continuously reduce invasiveness for patient care and at the same time avoiding the arisen morcellation problem, new transabdominal laparoscopic and transcervical hysteroscopic treatment options have emerged.

Authors: Magro G, Salvatorelli L, Puzzo L, Piombino E, Bartoloni G, Broggi G, Vecchio GM Abstract The diagnosis of bland-looking spindle cell lesions of the breast is often challenging because there is a close morphological and immunohistochemical overlap among the different entities. The present review will discuss reactive spindle cell nodule/exuberant scar, nodular fasciitis, inflammatory pseudotumor, myofibroblastoma (classic type), lipomatous myofibroblastoma, palisaded myofibroblastoma, benign fibroblastic spindle cell tumor, spindle cell lipoma, fibroma, leiomyoma, solitary fibrous tumor, myxoma, schwannoma/...

Authors: Torresan F, Iacobone M Abstract Hyperparathyroidism-jaw tumor (HPT-JT) syndrome is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by parathyroid tumors in association with fibro-osseous jaw tumors and uterine and renal lesions. HPT-JT syndrome is caused by germline mutations of the cell division cycle 73 (CDC73) gene that encodes the parafibromin, a 531-amino acid protein with antiproliferative activity. Primary hyperparathyroidism is the main finding of HPT-JT syndrome, usually caused by a single-gland parathyroid involvement (80% of cases), at variance with other variants of hereditary hyperparathyroidism,...

Abstract Pseudo-Meigs syndrome is defined as the secondary accumulation of ascites and hydrothorax associated with pelvic tumor other than benign ovarian tumor such as fibroma, which classically resolve upon surgical removal of the tumor. Here we report a case of pseudo-Meigs syndrome caused by a giant uterine leiomyoma, which was initially suspected to be ovarian cancer. A 37-year old nulliparous woman presented with a 5-month history of abdominal distension and anorexia. Abdominal ultrasonography revealed the presence of a giant cystic lesion and solid mass in the peritoneal cavity along with a massive ascites. ...
