Prominent Pseudoacini in Focal Nodular Hyperplasia: A Potential Diagnostic Pitfall.

Am J Surg Pathol 2022 Jun 22. Epub 2022 Jun 22.

Department of Pathology, Yale School of Medicine, New Haven, CT.

Pseudoacini are generally a morphologic feature of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), being absent or rare in benign hepatocytic tumors, such as hepatocellular adenoma. However, rarely these can be seen in focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH) and may pose diagnostic challenges, especially when prominent. The study was aimed to evaluate the occurrence of pseudoacini in FNH and their clinicopathologic correlations. Read More

Adrenal Tumors in Young Adults: Case Reports and Literature Review.

Medicina (Kaunas) 2022 May 30;58(6). Epub 2022 May 30.

Department of Endocrinology and Internal Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, Medical University of Gdansk, 80-214 Gdansk, Poland.

The current high detection rate of adrenal tumors (4-10% of general population) is attributable to a widespread use of variety of imaging studies, especially a computed tomography. Most of them represent clinically silent and biologically indolent incidentalomas, but some adrenal tumors may pose a significant clinical challenge. Thus, in every patient with an adrenal tumor, a decision on further management is made after careful hormonal and radiological evaluation. Read More

Deep Learning for Approaching Hepatocellular Carcinoma Ultrasound Screening Dilemma: Identification of α-Fetoprotein-Negative Hepatocellular Carcinoma From Focal Liver Lesion Found in High-Risk Patients.

Front Oncol 2022 26;12:862297. Epub 2022 May 26.

Department of Ultrasound, Zhongshan Hospital of Fudan University, Shanghai, China.

Background: First-line surveillance on hepatitis B virus (HBV)-infected populations with B-mode ultrasound is relatively limited to identifying hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) without elevated α-fetoprotein (AFP). To improve the present HCC surveillance strategy, the state of the art of artificial intelligence (AI), a deep learning (DL) approach, is proposed to assist in the diagnosis of a focal liver lesion (FLL) in HBV-infected liver background.

Methods: Our proposed deep learning model was based on B-mode ultrasound images of surgery that proved 209 HCC and 198 focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH) cases with 413 lesions. Read More

Focal Nodular Hyperplasia and Focal Nodular Hyperplasia-like Lesions.

Radiographics 2022 Jun 10:210156. Epub 2022 Jun 10.

From the Department of Radiology (J.D.L., C.W.B., A.W.B., M.P.C., F.K.C., K.L.C., R.S., B.B.T., L.F.A.) and Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology (J.T.L.), Mayo Clinic Florida, 4500 San Pablo Rd, Jacksonville, FL 32224.

Focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH) is a benign lesion occurring in a background of normal liver. FNH is seen most commonly in young women and can often be accurately diagnosed at imaging, including CT, MRI, or contrast-enhanced US. In the normal liver, FNH frequently must be differentiated from hepatocellular adenoma, which although benign, is managed differently because of the risks of hemorrhage and malignant transformation.

Fat in mass in primary liver lesions: are usual MRI diagnostic criteria of both malignant and benign liver lesions still applicable?

Abdom Radiol (NY) 2022 Jul 7;47(7):2347-2355. Epub 2022 Jun 7.

Department of Radiology, APHP, HU Henri Mondor, Creteil, Val-de-Marne, France.

Oxaliplatin-Induced Sinusoidal Obstruction Syndrome Masquerading as Colorectal Liver Metastasis: A Case Report.

J Gastrointest Cancer 2022 Jun 6. Epub 2022 Jun 6.

Department of Surgical Oncology, Tata Memorial Hospital, Homi Bhabha National Institute, Ernest Borges Road, Parel, Mumbai, 400012, India.

Introduction: Oxaliplatin-based chemotherapy is commonly used in adjuvant treatment of colon cancer as well as in neoadjuvant setting in patients with liver metastases. However oxaliplatin can cause damage to non-tumor bearing liver which presents as sinusoidal obstructive syndrome (SOS). These changes are difficult to differentiate from metastasis clinic-radiologically and manifests as sinusoidal dilatation, peliosis and nodular regenerative hyperplasia.

A Machine Learning-Based Approach for Classification of Focal Splenic Lesions Based on Their CT Features.

Front Vet Sci 2022 2;9:872618. Epub 2022 May 2.

Department of Animal Medicine, Production and Health, University of Padua, Viale dell'Università 16, Padua, Italy.

The aim of the study was to describe the CT features of focal splenic lesions (FSLs) in dogs in order to predict lesion histotype. Dogs that underwent a CT scan and had a FSL diagnosis by cytology or histopathology were retrospectively included in the study. For the statistical analysis the cases were divided into four groups, based on the results of cytopatholoy or hystopathology, namely: nodular hyperplasia (NH), other benign lesions (OBLs), sarcoma (SA), round cell tumour (RCT).

Adapting the Utility of Lipiodol CT in Treating Small Hepatocellular Carcinoma.

J Clin Exp Hepatol 2022 Mar-Apr;12(2):664-668. Epub 2021 Jul 30.

Department of Gastroenterology, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.

Introduction: Multiphase MRI liver is the gold-standard imaging modality for staging hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in patients with cirrhosis. Often, small HCCs diagnosed on multiphase MRI are occult on B-mode ultrasound and multiphase CT (MPCT) and thus pose a challenge for loco-regional therapy. We adapted the technique of lipiodol CT in treating two such patients of small HCC. Read More

Radiol Case Rep 2022 Jun 5;17(6):1858-1865. Epub 2022 Apr 5.

Department of Radiology, Candiolo Cancer Institute, FPO-IRCCS, Candiolo, Turin, Italy.

Chemotherapy could induce benign liver alterations presenting as diffuse or focal lesions mimicking metastases. Oxaliplatin-induced vascular liver injury is described in literature, but the association with FNH-like lesions has been reported in a limited number of cases. We herewith describe the case of a 67-year-old male, who had laparoscopic right-sided hemicolectomy, 8 years ago, because of colonic adenocarcinoma (pT3N0M0) and subsequent adjuvant chemotherapy (capecitabine + oxaliplatin), who referred to the ultrasound service of our Radiology Unit because of abdominal pain.

Incidental Liver Lesions in children: A practical and evidence-based approach.

Clin Res Hepatol Gastroenterol 2022 May 19;46(5):101904. Epub 2022 Mar 19.

Pediatric Gastroenterology Unit, Centro Materno Infantil do Norte, Centro Hospitalar Universitário do Porto, Largo da Maternidade de Júlio Dinis 45, Porto 4050-651, Portugal.

Incidental liver lesions are increasingly being discovered in the context of the increased use of ultrasound studies and the majority are benign. In children, although individually rare, the differential diagnosis is broad and therefore a systematic approach is of utmost importance to reduce the radiological and disease burden in children and their families. This review article collected current evidence and provides fundamental information for the clinician regarding specific differential diagnoses and unique imaging features of benign liver lesions in children.

Department of Radiology, 103564Hospital Universitario "Dr José Eleuterio González", Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León, Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico.

Introduction: The FOLFOX6 scheme is a combination drug chemotherapy that contains calcium leucovorin (folinic acid), fluorouracil, and oxaliplatin, the chronic use of chemotherapy with oxaliplatin can progress to focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH), which is a benign hepatic lesion.

Case Report: We present a case of a 26- year-old female diagnosed with an ovarian mixed germ cell tumor with extension to the peritoneum, treated with 12 cycles in 9 months with neoadjuvant chemotherapy FOLFOX 6 scheme and oophorectomy. A three-year follow-up CT showed three nodular and hypervascular hepatic lesions suspicious of metastatic disease; an MRI with liver-specific contrast confirmed the diagnosis of FNH. Read More

Gastroenterology 2022 Jun 22;162(7):1948-1961.e7. Epub 2022 Feb 22.

Department of Pathology, The Third Affiliated Hospital, Sun Yat-sen University, Guangzhou, China. Electronic address:

Background & Aims: Hepatocellular nodular lesions (HNLs) constitute a heterogeneous group of disorders. Differential diagnosis among these lesions, especially high-grade dysplastic nodules (HGDNs) and well-differentiated hepatocellular carcinoma (WD-HCC), can be challenging, let alone biopsy specimens. We aimed to develop a deep learning system to solve these puzzles, improving the histopathologic diagnosis of HNLs (WD-HCC, HGDN, low-grade DN, focal nodular hyperplasia, hepatocellular adenoma), and background tissues (nodular cirrhosis, normal liver tissue).
