Bony Cyst in a Ground Glass Matrix: A Rare Case Report of Craniofacial Fibrous Dysplasia with Secondary Aneurysmal Bone Cyst.

Indian J Radiol Imaging 2022 Mar 1;32(1):145-148. Epub 2022 May 1.

Department of Radiodiagnosis and Imaging, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Rishikesh, Uttarakhand, India.

Fibrous dysplasia has various ways of presentation including syndromic associations and secondary changes within the lesion. We present a case of a 21-year-old female with craniofacial fibrous dysplasia, presenting with proptosis and intermittent blurring of vision due to focal fibrous dysplasia involving the frontal bone with secondary aneurysmal bone formation that was provisionally diagnosed on imaging and confirmed on histopathology. This case demonstrates the typical imaging findings of fibrous dysplasia with seldom encountered secondary aneurysmal bone cyst formation and also discusses about the pathology and management of the craniofacial fibrous dysplasia.

Doxycycline sclerotherapy of cervical spine aneurysmal bone cysts: single-institution 13-year experience.

Pediatr Radiol 2022 Mar 19. Epub 2022 Mar 19.

Department of Radiology, Nationwide Children's Hospital, 700 Children's Drive, Columbus, OH, 43205, USA.

Background: Aneurysmal bone cysts (ABCs) are benign, locally aggressive neoplasms that typically affect patients during their first two decades of life. Curettage with or without bone grafting or adjuvants is the current standard treatment; however, other surgical and medical treatments, such as sclerotherapy, have been reported. Treatment options for cervical spine ABCs are more limited because the proximity of ABCs to critical structures leads to greater risk of spontaneous or treatment-related adverse events, including death.

Solid-variant aneurysmal bone cysts in the craniofacial skeleton: the role of genomic analysis.

Childs Nerv Syst 2022 Jan 31. Epub 2022 Jan 31.

Division of Neurosurgery, Connecticut Children's, Hartford, CT, USA.

Background: Solid variant aneurysmal bone cysts (SVABCs) are a rare but well-described subtype of ABCs. While classic ABCs are readily identified radiographically, SVABCs lack these characteristic radiographic features and thus have a wide differential diagnosis on presentation (including Ewing sarcoma, Langerhans cell histiocytosis, osteosarcoma, metastasis, and giant cell tumor). Genomic/molecular analyses are often necessary for the diagnosis of SVABCs, with USP6 rearrangements being a characteristic finding. Read More

Diagnosis of giant cell-rich bone tumors on core needle biopsy: A practical approach.

Pathol Res Pract 2022 Mar 21;231:153777. Epub 2022 Jan 21.

Department of Pathology, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, 251 East Huron St, Feinberg 7-342A, Chicago, IL 60611, United States.

Background: The differential diagnosis of giant cell-rich bone tumors comprises a broad spectrum of lesions with prominent reactive osteoclast-like and/or neoplastic giant cells, with substantial differences in biologic behavior and clinical management. Evaluation of giant cell-rich bone tumors on small biopsies can be challenging especially in specimens with limited representative material. An accurate diagnosis requires a high level of skill on the part of both radiologist and pathologist as correlation with clinical and radiologic characteristics is critical. Read More
