[Rare Cause for Difficulty in Swallowing with Neck Swelling - Paraganglioma].

Praxis (Bern 1994) 2020 Jul;109(9):736-742

Allgemeine Innere Medizin, Medbase St. Gallen am Vadianplatz, St. Gallen.

Rare Cause for Difficulty in Swallowing with Neck Swelling - Paraganglioma Pain-free lateral swelling of the neck should be taken seriously and promptly clarified by using sonography. If a cervical paraganglioma is suspected, an interdisciplinary clarification should be initiated. In addition to an MRI of the neck, a vascular-surgical, an ENT specialist and an endocrinological examination should be carried out. Read More

Ultrasound features of the subungual glomus tumor and squamous cell carcinomas.

Skin Res Technol 2020 Jun 25. Epub 2020 Jun 25.

Division of Dermatology, Department of Experimental, Diagnostic and Specialty Medicine, University of Bologna, Bologna, Italy.

Background: Nail tumors often pose a significant challenge for the clinician, as they are burdened by a high delay in diagnosis and paucity of clinical signs in the early stage. In most cases, the onset of pain or nail plate dystrophy leads to imaging investigations such as plain radiography, magnetic resonance imaging, and ultrasonography (US) when surgery is pending.

Material And Methods: A 2-year monocentric study evaluated the histologically confirmed cases of subungual glomus tumor (GT) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) with a pre-surgical US assessment, and reviewed their sonography features. Read More

Glomus tumors are mesenchymal neoplasms derived from glomus bodies with rare presentations in the oral cavity. Glomus tumors present as a purple or pink vascular nodule or papule, sized <1 cm, and imitate vascular neoplasms such as hemangiopericytoma or hemangioma. Glomus tumors represent less than 2% of all benign soft tissue tumors. Read More

The Changing Paradigm of Head and Neck Paragangliomas: What Every Otolaryngologist Needs to Know.

Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol 2020 Jun 2:3489420931540. Epub 2020 Jun 2.

Department of Otolaryngology, University of Colorado School of Medicine, Aurora, CO, USA.

Background: Recommendations regarding head and neck paragangliomas (HNPGL) have undergone a fundamental reorientation in the last decade as a result of increased understanding of the genetic and pathophysiologic basis of these disorders.

Malignant transformation of glomus tumor is exceedingly rare and most common reported in lower extremity and abdominal viscera. We could find only 6 previous case report of malignant glomus tumor in the hand. Although large and deeply located glomus tumors are considered to be malignant, evidence has shown that most of these cases were clinically benign. Read More

Glomangioma of Uncertain Malignant Potential: A Case Report.

Case Rep Orthop 2020 8;2020:4237076. Epub 2020 Jan 8.

Department of Orthopedics, Cedars Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, CA, USA.

Glomus tumors are rare benign tumors which commonly affect the hand but are seldom seen extradigitally. Less commonly seen is the glomangioma, a variant of benign glomus tumor, and even rarer is the glomangiosarcoma, a malignant variant. Determining malignancy can be difficult and an intermediate diagnosis, glomus tumor of uncertain malignant potential, has been proposed. Read More

Soft-Tissue Tumors of the Hand-Imaging Features.

Can Assoc Radiol J 2020 May 22;71(2):161-173. Epub 2020 Jan 22.

Department of Radiology, University of Chicago, Chicago, IL, USA.

Imaging studies of the hands and fingers are common, and radiologists are generally comfortable with traumatic and degenerative conditions which arise frequently in daily practice. However, a variety of common and uncommon soft-tissue tumors also occur in the hand, the appropriate diagnosis of which can be a source of confusion for both clinicians and radiologists. These lesions often have overlapping imaging characteristics; however, a structured approach can help provide a focused differential diagnosis and impact further workup and management. Read More

Department of Neurological Surgery, The Charles Clore Hospitalization Tower, West Wing Sheba Medical Center, Ramat Gan, Israel.

Background: Glomus jugulare tumors (GJTs) are uncommon and locally disruptive tumors that usually arise within the jugular foramen of the temporal bone. Surgery was the treatment of choice up until recently. In the last decades, however, radiosurgery has surfaced as a promising alternative treatment by providing excellent tumor control with low risk of cranial nerve injuries. Read More

The Role of Endoscopic Ultrasound and Endoscopic Resection for Gastric Glomus: A Case Series and Literature Review.

J Transl Int Med 2019 Dec 31;7(4):149-154. Epub 2019 Dec 31.

Endoscopy Center, Shengjing Hospital of China Medical University, Shenyang, Liaoning Province, China.

Background And Objectives: Preoperative diagnosis of gastric glomus tumor is very difficult, and there are few reports regarding the endoscopic treatment of glomus tumor of the stomach. Our aim is to provide a retrospective assessment of the imaging features of endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) and treatment of choice of gastric glomus tumor.

Methods: A database of all patients with gastric glomus tumor who was treated at Shengjing Hospital of China Medical University between March 2011 and March 2017 was retrospectively analyzed. Read More

Department of Pathology, Khon Kaen university, Mueang, Khon Kaen, Thailand.

Glomus tumors occur preferentially in the subcutaneous tissue of the fingers and toes, but are extremely rare in visceral organs. Although, there have been several reports of glomus tumors in the liver in adult patients, there have yet been no publications reporting glomus tumors of the liver in children. Here, we report a case of an 11-year-old girl who was admitted with a 2-week history of progressive dyspnea on exertion and vomiting. Read More
