Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Juntendo University School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan.

Mammary analogue secretory carcinoma (MASC) of salivary glands is a newly recognized tumor entity. We report a child who was initially diagnosed with lymphangioma and referred to our institute for sclerotherapy, only to find out that the tumor was in fact MASC after excision. This case of MASC is in a 7-year-old boy, the youngest case so far reported. Read More

Gland Surg 2018 Oct;7(5):487-492

Department of Human Pathology of the Adult and Evolutive Age "Gaetano Barresi", Section of General Surgery, University of Messina, Messina, Italy.

Lymphangiomas are rare congenital benign tumors arising from the lymphatic system. The incidence of this disease in the pancreas is extremely rare, accounting for less than 1% of these tumors. Before introducing the review we reported a case of a 67-year-old woman with cystic lymphangioma of the pancreas. Read More

CT and MRI of adrenal gland pathologies.

Quant Imaging Med Surg 2018 Sep;8(8):853-875

Department of Radiology, Affiliated Hospital of Zunyi Medical University, Zunyi 563000, China.

Besides ultrasound and nuclear medicine techniques, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are commonly used to examine adrenal lesions in both symptomatic and asymptomatic patients. Some adrenal lesions have characteristic radiological features. If an adrenal nodule is discovered incidentally, determining whether the lesion is benign or malignant is of great importance.

Clinic of General Surgery, Ankara Umut Hospital Ankara, Turkey.

Surrenal masses can be encountered with many different clinical manifestations and a diverse spectrum of etiologies in clinical practice. Recent advances in imaging and laboratory studies as well as their increasingly widespread use and easy accessibility have currently made it possible to diagnose a greater number of surrenal masses than ever. The basic approach principles vary for incidentally detected masses, benign/malignant masses, and hormonoactive masses. Read More

Inconsistency in classifying vascular anomalies: What's in a name?

Pediatr Blood Cancer 2018 Mar 8;65(3). Epub 2017 Oct 8.

Division of Pediatric Hematology Oncology, University of North Carolina School of Medicine, Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

Background: Vascular anomalies are a heterogeneous group of disorders seen in children and adults. A standard nomenclature for classification has been offered by the International Society for the Study of Vascular Anomalies. Its application is important for communication among the multiple specialties involved in the care of patients and for planning treatment, as well as for research and billing. Read More

J Exp Ther Oncol 2017 Sep;11(2):155-158

Department of Clinics Pathalogy, Ankara Numune Education and Research Hospital, Ankara, Turkey.

Objective: Lymphangiomas are rare benign tumors which are generally seen in pediatric population and the etiopathogenesis has not yet been understood. They occasionally occur in the head and neck or axillary region with only 5% of them being located in the abdominal or mediastinal cavity. These tumors may be asymptomatic or may cause acute abdominal symptoms due to the location and extention. Read More

Implications of fetoplacental mosaicism on cell-free DNA testing for sex chromosome aneuploidies.

Prenat Diagn 2017 Oct 6;37(10):1017-1027. Epub 2017 Sep 6.

Genomed SA, Warsaw, Poland.

Objective: The unique biological behavior of sex chromosomes has implications for cell-free DNA (cfDNA) testing. Our purpose is to predict the (1) false positive/negative rates of cfDNA testing consequent to fetoplacental mosaicism for any sex chromosome aneuploidies (SCA) and (2) positive predictive value (PPV) and negative predictive values of a high-risk and low-risk cfDNA result for any SCA.

Method: This is a retrospective analysis of 67 030 chorionic villus sampling karyotypes, including fetoplacental mosaicism cases. Read More

Microbubbles in macrocysts - Contrast-enhanced ultrasound assisted sclerosant therapy of a congenital macrocystic lymphangioma: a case report.

BMC Med Imaging 2017 07 6;17(1):39. Epub 2017 Jul 6.

Department of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, University Hospital of Erlangen, Loschgestrasse 15, D-91054, Erlangen, Germany.

Background: Congenital cystic lymphangiomas are benign malformations due to a developmental disorder of lymphatic vessels. Besides surgical excision, sclerosant therapy of these lesions by intracavitary injection of OK-432 (Picibanil®), a lyophilized mixture of group A Streptococcus pyogenes, is a common therapeutical option. For an appropriate application of OK-432, a detailed knowledge about the structure and composition of the congenital cystic lymphangioma is essential. Read More

Salivary gland tumors and tumor-like lesions in the pediatric population are uncommon. They comprise a heterogeneous group of infectious/inflammatory and neoplastic conditions. Pediatric salivary neoplasms include benign tumors of mesenchymal or epithelial origin as well as malignancies of epithelial (carcinomas), mesenchymal (sarcoma) or hematolymphoid (lymphoma) derivation.
