Intraosseous Lipoma of the Calvaria in the Early Stage Resembling Normal Fatty Marrow.

J Neurol Surg Rep 2022 Apr 17;83(2):e29-e32. Epub 2022 May 17.

Department of Diagnostic Pathology, Juntendo University Nerima Hospital, Tokyo, Japan.

Intraosseous lipoma (IOL) is a benign bone tumor that usually arises from the lower limb and rarely arises from the skull. Radiological diagnosis of a typical case is not problematic due to its characteristic calcification and marginal sclerosis. Here, we report a case of calvarial IOL in the early stage lacking conventional radiopathological features. Read More

Proteus-Like Syndrome: A Rare Phenotype of Phosphatase and Tensin Homolog Hamartoma Tumor Syndrome.

Cureus 2022 Apr 14;14(4):e24135. Epub 2022 Apr 14.

Radiology, University of Toledo Medical Center, Toledo, USA.

The phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) hamartoma tumor syndrome (PHTS) is a collection of diseases stemming from mutations in the PTEN tumor suppressor gene and is characterized by variable expressivity and abnormal overgrowth in multiple body systems. Its clinical manifestations include, but are not limited to, lipomas, limb overgrowth, dermatologic lesions, and malignancy. The infrequency of occurrence and broadness of clinical presentation has made the diagnosis and differentiation of different subtypes of PHTS challenging. Read More

Endobronchial lipoma.

Autops Case Rep 2022 2;12:e2021377. Epub 2022 May 2.

Augusta University, Medical College of Georgia, Augusta, Georgia, USA.

Endobronchial lipomas are rare benign lung tumors that can cause bronchial obstruction and parenchymal damage. While an uncommon etiology, they are often misdiagnosed due to a clinical presentation similar to obstructive pulmonary pathologies such as COPD and asthma. Upon review of English-language literature, under 50 cases of endobronchial lipomas were documented in the prior 10 years (2011-2021). Read More

Primary Benign Tumors of the Spinal Canal.

World Neurosurg 2022 May 9. Epub 2022 May 9.

Subdirection of basic research, Instituto Nacional de Cancerología. San Fernando Avenue 22, Belisario Domínguez Sección XVI. México City 14080, México. Electronic address:

Benign tumors that grow in the spinal canal are heterogeneous neoplasms with low incidence; from these, meningiomas and nerve sheath tumors (neurofibromas and schwannomas) account for 60% to 70% of all primary spinal tumors. Benign spinal canal tumors provoke nonspecific clinical manifestations, mostly related to the affected level of the spinal cord. These tumors present a challenge for the patient and healthcare professionals for they are often difficult to diagnose, and the high frequency of posttreatment complications. Read More

Superficial Cervical Plexus Block for Retroauricular Mass Excision in a Patient with High Risk of General Anaesthesia: A Case Report.

Turk J Anaesthesiol Reanim 2022 Apr;50(2):148-150

Department of Anaesthesiology and Reanimation, School of Medicine, Ataturk University, Erzurum, Turkey.

The surgical procedure of lipomas is performed under local, regional, or general anaesthesia depending on the location, number, and size of the lipoma. Anaesthesia can be achieved with a superficial cervical plexus block in the short-term surgery of soft tissue lesions in the dermatome areas of the lesser occipital nerve and great auricular nerve. In this article, we presented a high-risk patient with comorbid diseases and difficult airway who underwent superficial cervical plexus block for retro-auricular lipoma excision. Read More

Mapping the PIK3CA-related overgrowth spectrum (PROS) patient and caregiver journey using a patient-centered approach.

Orphanet J Rare Dis 2022 05 7;17(1):189. Epub 2022 May 7.

Interventional Radiology, Nemours Children's Hospital, Orlando, FL, USA.

Background: PROS disorders are driven by somatic, gain-of-function mutations in PIK3CA that result in hyperactivation of the phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase (PI3K) signaling pathway. PROS encompasses a broad spectrum of overlapping phenotypes (including overgrowth and vascular malformations) that vary significantly in their severity; every case is unique, leading to different, complex experiences. Here, we aim to describe the PROS experience from the patients' and caregivers' points of view, from onset to diagnosis to treatment and support. Read More

Isolated pathologies of Tensor Fasciae Latae: Retrospective cohort analysis from a tertiary referral centre.

J Clin Orthop Trauma 2022 Jun 20;29:101870. Epub 2022 Apr 20.

Department of Musculoskeletal Radiology, Royal Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Birmingham, United Kingdom.

Introduction: Tensor Fasciae Latae (TFL) and the iliotibial band (ITB) act as a single functional unit in maintaining pelvic stability whilst standing, walking, or running in human beings. The Tensor Fasciae Latae (TFL) muscle acts across the hip and the knee joint. Consequently, though its pathologies traditionally present with lateral hip pain, identifying the precise clinical diagnosis can be a challenge. Read More

Cureus 2022 Mar 31;14(3):e23692. Epub 2022 Mar 31.

Pathology, King Fahad Specialist Hospital, Dammam, SAU.

Lipoma arborescens (villous lipomatous proliferation of the synovial membrane) is a rare, benign articular lesion characterized by diffuse villous proliferation of the synovium with mature fat substitution of the sub-synovial connective tissue. The etiology of this condition still remains unknown. It represents part of differential diagnosis for a progressive swollen knee with chronic pain secondary to synovial proliferative disorders with or without associations with osteoarthritis.

[Lipoblastoma-like tumor of the vulva: A case report and review of the literature].

Rev Esp Patol 2022 Apr-Jun;55(2):139-144. Epub 2020 Jan 2.

Servicio de Anatomía Patológica, Hospital Universitario Vall d'Hebron, Barcelona, España; Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona, Bellaterra, Barcelona, España. Electronic address:

Lipoblastoma-like tumor of the vulva (LBLTV) was first described as a benign mesenchymal neoplasia; it was not recognized as a separate diagnosis in the 2013 WHO classification of soft-tissue tumors. To date, only 19 cases have been reported. LBLTV differential diagnosis includes other tumors of the vulvoperineal region and tumors with adipocytic differentiation, most of which are benign and thus a misdiagnosis has few clinical consequences.

Omental lipoma: a rare cause of a giant intra-abdominal mass.

J Surg Case Rep 2022 Apr 25;2022(4):rjac160. Epub 2022 Apr 25.

Department of Surgery, St Vincent's Hospital Sydney, Darlinghurst, New South Wales, Australia.

Primary tumors of the omentum, let alone omental lipomas, are rare causes of a large intra-abdominal mass. We report a case of an adult male presenting with an intra-abdominal mass, representative of a giant omental lipoma radiologically, confirmed on histopathology after complete resection at laparotomy. The case highlights the preoperative workup of a suspected omental lipoma, including the utility of various radiological modalities in differentiating from malignant pathologies, and anatomical characterization of the lesion for surgical planning.
