    Intradural - extramedullary cervical cord lipoma: Case report and literature review.
    World Neurosurg 2017 Nov 14. Epub 2017 Nov 14.
    Department of Neurosurgical Department, Aglaia Kyriakou Pediatric Hospital of Athens, Athens, Attica, 11527 Greece. Electronic address:
    Background: Spinal lipomas are generally thought to occur as a result of failed primary neurulation. Failed primary neurulation allows invasion of mesenchymal tissue of mesodermic origin into the neural structure, leading to the formation of a spinal lipoma. Despite most spinal lipomas being regarded as the result of failed primary neurulation, some confusion in terms of the embryogenesis of spinal lipomas remains. Read More

    Adipocyte Size Variability in Benign and Malignant Lipomatous Tumors and Morphologic Mimics: a Quantitative Definition Using Digital Pathology.
    Hum Pathol 2017 Nov 8. Epub 2017 Nov 8.
    Department of Pathology, University of San Francisco (UCSF), San Francisco, CA 94143.
    Among well-differentiated lipomatous lesions, variability in adipocyte size has been proposed as a morphologic feature of malignancy. Specifically, normal adipose tissue and benign lipomas tend to contain adipocytes of uniform size, whereas atypical lipomatous tumor/well-differentiated liposarcoma (ALT/WDL) are described as containing adipocytes with a conspicuous variation in cell size. However, this proposed variance has never been objectively, quantitatively correlated with diagnosis. Read More

    Arch Pathol Lab Med 2017 Nov;141(11):1503-1507
    From the Department of Pathology, University of Michigan/Michigan Medicine, Ann Arbor, Michigan.
    Myxoinflammatory fibroblastic sarcoma is a rare soft tissue tumor with most occurring in the distal extremities of adult patients. It has a high rate of local recurrence and a low rate of metastasis. Because it may appear benign on clinical examination, and because the microscopic features are generally underrecognized, it is often inadequately treated and misdiagnosed. Read More

    Spatiotemporal changes in the distribution of LHFPL5 in mice cochlear hair bundles during development and in the absence of PCDH15.
    PLoS One 2017 25;12(10):e0185285. Epub 2017 Oct 25.
    School of Life Sciences, Keele University, Keele, Staffordshire, United Kingdom.
    Mechanosensory transduction by vertebrate hair cells depends on a protein complex at the tips of shorter stereocilia associated with mechanoelectrical transduction channels activated by tip links in the hair bundle. In mammalian hair cells, this complex includes transmembrane channel-like protein subunit 1 (TMC1), lipoma HMGIC fusion partner-like 5 protein (LHFPL5) and protocadherin 15 (PCDH15), a lower-end component of the tip link. TMC1 interacts with LHFPL5 and PCDH15 but how the complex develops to maturity, and the relationships between these proteins, remains uncertain. Read More

    Hospital de Santa Maria (CHLN), Serviço de Cirurgia Plástica, Lisboa, Portugal.
    Lipoma is a quite common type of soft-tissue tumor, but it is rarely found in the hand. Hand lipomas are generally asymptomatic; however, when they become too large or when they are present in some specific location, they can cause symptoms due to compression of the median nerve. These tumors must be correctly characterized preoperatively with imaging exams and the proper management is the complete removal of the tumor and release of the median nerve. Read More

    A rare case of pediatric lipoma with t(9;12)(p22;q14) and evidence of HMGA2-NFIB gene fusion.
    Cancer Genet 2017 Oct 9;216-217:100-104. Epub 2017 Aug 9.
    Genetics Department, Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario, Ottawa, Canada; Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Canada. Electronic address:
    Lipoma is a benign tumor, typically of adulthood, with characteristic cytogenetic findings, including rearrangement of 12q13-15; these rearrangements often lead to the fusion of the HMGA2 gene at this locus to the transcriptional regulatory domain of its fusion partner, resulting in neomorphic activity that presumably facilitates the neoplastic process. Herein, we report a rare case of pediatric lipoma with t(9;12)(p22;q14) and evidence of HMGA2-NFIB gene fusion in a 9 year-old boy. This case provides further evidence of the link between NFIB rearrangement and early-onset, deep-seated lipomatous tumors. Read More
