Cutaneous Elastic Tissue Anomalies.

Am J Dermatopathol 2019 Feb;41(2):85-117

Department of Dermatology, Fundación Jiménez Díaz, Universidad Autónoma, Madrid, Spain.

After a review of the physiology in the formation and degradation of cutaneous elastic tissue, we describe the clinicopathologic disorders characterized by increased and decreased cutaneous elastic tissue. Cutaneous disorders characterized by increased and/or abnormal elastic tissue in the dermis include elastoma, also named nevus elasticus, dermatosis lenticularis disseminata, pseudoxanthoma elasticum, late-onset focal dermal elastosis, linear focal elastosis, elastoderma, elastofibroma dorsi, and elastosis perforans serpiginosa. In some of these conditions, the specific histopathologic diagnosis may be rendered with hematoxylin-eosin stain, whereas in other ones special elastic tissue stains are necessary to demonstrate the anomalies.

Patients And Methods: We evaluated retrospectively 82 patients (55 females, 27 males; mean age, 60 years; age range, 23-78 years) with ED who underwent surgery between January 1994 and May 2014; subsequently all patients were invited for follow-up, which consisted of physical and US examinations.

Results: Subscapular location was almost constant (79/82 patients). Read More

Radioiodine uptake in the thyroid tissue, metastasis of differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC), and in other tissues, depends on the expression of sodium-iodide symporter (NIS). Vascular permeability, effusions, inflammation, and other mechanisms may also play a role in the accumulation of radioactive iodine. A 63-year-old woman underwent radioiodine therapy, as well as a post-therapy whole-body scan, as she was suspected of having lung metastasis from thyroid carcinoma. Read More

Imaging review of lipomatous musculoskeletal lesions.

SICOT J 2017 5;3:34. Epub 2017 May 5.

Department of Radiology, University of California San Diego, 200 West Arbor Drive, Mail Code: 8756, San Diego, CA 92130, USA.

Lipomatous lesions are common musculoskeletal lesions that can arise within the soft tissues, bone, neurovascular structures, and synovium. The majority of these lesions are benign, and many of the benign lesions can be diagnosed by radiologic evaluation. However, radiologic differences between benign and malignant lipomatous lesions may be subtle and pathologic correlation is often needed. Read More

A Unique Case of Pancreatic Mass due to Pancreatic Elastofibromatosis.

Case Rep Gastrointest Med 2016 6;2016:2697187. Epub 2016 Nov 6.

University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha, NE, USA.

Elastofibroma is a benign tumor of the musculoskeletal system characterized by the abnormal accumulation of elastinophilic fibers. It has been classically described for subscapular region but has been reported in several musculoskeletal sites over the years and rarely even in the GI tract but never in pancreas. We therefore present the case of a 45-year-old female who presented with intermittent abdominal pain. Read More

Çukurova University Faculty of Medicine, Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology, Adana, Turkey.

Objective: Elastofibroma dorsi (ED) is a rare, benign, soft tissue tumor typically located between inferior corner of scapula and posterior chest wall causing mass, scapular snapping, and pain. When classic symptoms and localization are present, it is diagnosed without biopsy and treated with marginal resection. This study retrospectively analyzed patients operated on for ED to evaluate presenting symptoms, tumor size, complications, and clinical results, and to suggest optimal treatments. Read More
