Somatic PRKAR1A mutation in sporadic atrial myxoma with cerebral parenchymal metastases: a case report.

J Med Case Rep 2019 Dec 25;13(1):389. Epub 2019 Dec 25.

Departments of Pathology, Yale University School of Medicine, 310 Cedar Street, P.O. Box 208023, New Haven, CT, 06520-8023, USA.

Background: Atrial myxomas are generally considered benign neoplasms. The majority of tumors are sporadic and less than 10% are associated with an autosomal dominant condition known as the Carney complex, which is most often caused by germline mutation in the gene PRKAR1A. Whether this gene plays a role in the development of sporadic myxomas has been an area of debate, although recent studies have suggested that some fraction of sporadic tumors also carry mutations in PRKARIA.

Splicing Dysregulation as Oncogenic Driver and Passenger Factor in Brain Tumors.

Cells 2019 12 18;9(1). Epub 2019 Dec 18.

Laboratory of Neuroembryology, IRCCS Fondazione Santa Lucia, 00143 Rome, Italy.

Brain tumors are a heterogeneous group of neoplasms ranging from almost benign to highly aggressive phenotypes. The malignancy of these tumors mostly relies on gene expression reprogramming, which is frequently accompanied by the aberrant regulation of RNA processing mechanisms. In brain tumors, defects in alternative splicing result either from the dysregulation of expression and activity of splicing factors, or from mutations in the genes encoding splicing machinery components.

Hemangiomas are benign vascular neoplasms frequently encountered in neonates and infants. The less common congenital variant develops in utero and can present on prenatal ultrasound with diagnostic uncertainty as well as clinical implications for delivery. Read More

Multiple cerebral metastases and metastatic aneurysms in patients with left atrial Myxoma: a case report.

BMC Neurol 2019 Oct 23;19(1):249. Epub 2019 Oct 23.

Department of Neurology, Union Hospital, Tongji Medical College, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, 430022, China.

Background: Cardiac myxoma is the most common benign cardiac tumor. Brain metastases or multiple cerebral aneurysms are extremely rare, especially for the case of both complications. Brain metastases are usually found at the same time or few months after the diagnosis or surgical removal of cardiac myxoma CASE PRESENTATION: We describe a case of patient, operated for a cardiac myxoma, who presented multiple central nervous system metastases associated, cerebral aneurysms and subsequent intracerebral hemorrhage CONCLUSIONS: The long-term follow-up of the patients with atrial myxoma even after complete surgical excision is recommended, especially for the patient with central nervous system manifestations before atrial myxoma excision.

Multiple cardiac rhabdomyomas in tuberous sclerosis complex: case report and review of the literature.

Autops Case Rep 2019 Oct-Dec;9(4):e2019125. Epub 2019 Sep 30.

Irmandade da Santa Casa de Misericórdia de São Paulo, Department of Pathology. São Paulo, SP, Brazil.

Cardiac rhabdomyoma is a benign tumor which constitutes the most common cardiovascular feature of the tuberous sclerosis complex, a multisystem genetically determined neurocutaneous disorder. Cardiac rhabdomyomas can be detected in the prenatal ultrasound, are usually asymptomatic and spontaneously regress within the first three years of life. Less often, the tumors' size, number, and location can produce a mass effect that may lead to blood flow abnormalities or organ dysfunction (heart failure and arrhythmia). Read More

Robotic totally endoscopic excision of aortic valve papillary fibroelastoma: The least invasive approach.

J Card Surg 2019 Dec 14;34(12):1492-1497. Epub 2019 Oct 14.

Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, University of Chicago Medicine, Chicago, Illinois.

Introduction: Papillary fibroelastomas (PFEs) are a rare subtype of benign primary cardiac tumors, which are most commonly found on the aortic valve (AV). They have the potential to cause severe adverse clinical consequences, thus prompting surgical excision in the majority of cases. In this article, we report on a series of 5 PFEs resected from the AV using a robotic-assisted sternal-sparing approach, and review of the literature on this approach. Read More

Rapidly Growing Intra-Cardiac Mass Mimicking a Local Recurrence of Lung Cancer or a Thrombus in the Left Atrium.

Heart Surg Forum 2019 Aug 26;22(5):E317-E318. Epub 2019 Aug 26.

Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, Chonbuk National University Hospital, Jeonju, Korea.

Cardiac myxoma typically is thought to be a slow-growing, benign primary. Atrial myxomas can lead to many complications and can also mimic mitral stenosis, infective endocarditis, and other vascular diseases associated with systemic embolization. A 75-year-old woman with a history of lung cancer (pT1cN1, adenocarcinoma), atrial fibrillation, and a cerebral infarction presented with dysarthria and visual disturbances. Read More
