Dysplastic Lipoma: Potential Diagnostic Pitfall of Using MDM2 RNA In Situ Hybridization to Distinguish Between Lipoma and Atypical Lipomatous Tumor.

Hum Pathol 2020 May 18. Epub 2020 May 18.

Department of Pathology, Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA 02114, United States. Electronic address:

The distinction between lipoma and an atypical lipomatous tumor can be challenging in some cases. While detection of MDM2 gene amplification via fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) has been well-established as a diagnostic tool to distinguish atypical lipomatous tumor and well-differentiated liposarcoma from benign mimics, MDM2 RNA in situ hybridization (RNA-ISH) has recently been proposed as an alternative diagnostic assay. During clinical work-up for lipomatous tumors using MDM2 RNA-ISH, we noticed several dysplastic lipomas which were positive for MDM2 RNA-ISH but negative for MDM2 amplification by FISH. Read More

Disruption of Genes in Zebrafish Reveals Subunit Requirements in Subtypes of Inner Ear Hair Cells.

J Neurosci 2020 Jun 5;40(23):4457-4468. Epub 2020 May 5.

Department of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery, Stanford School of Medicine, Stanford University, Stanford, California 94305

Detection of sound and head movement requires mechanoelectrical transduction (MET) channels at tips of hair-cell stereocilia. In vertebrates, the transmembrane channel-like (TMC) proteins TMC1 and TMC2 fulfill critical roles in MET, and substantial evidence implicates these TMCs as subunits of the MET channel. To identify developmental and functional roles of this Tmc subfamily in the zebrafish inner ear, we tested the effects of truncating mutations in , , and on mechanosensation at the onset of hearing and balance, before gender differentiation.

Int J Surg Pathol 2020 May 4:1066896920917220. Epub 2020 May 4.

Erasmus MC Cancer Institute, Rotterdam, Netherlands.

Anisometric cell lipoma (ACL) and dysplastic lipoma (DL) are underrecognized subtypes of benign lipomatous tumors, with wide variation in cell size, microscopic fat necrosis, and no or mild nuclear changes (DL). ACL/DL appear more commonly in retinoblastoma patients, in whom an increased incidence of lipomas has been established. The occurrence of ACL/DL in retinoblastoma patients suggests that aberrations play a role in its pathogenesis, similar to spindle cell/pleomorphic lipoma. Read More

An MRI-based decision tree to distinguish lipomas and lipoma variants from well-differentiated liposarcoma of the extremity and superficial trunk: Classification and regression tree (CART) analysis.

Eur J Radiol 2020 Jun 18;127:109012. Epub 2020 Apr 18.

Department of Radiology and Research Institute of Radiology, University of Ulsan College of Medicine, Asan Medical Center, 88 Olympic-ro 43-gil, Songpa-gu, Seoul, 05505, Republic of Korea.

Purpose: To build and validate a decision tree model using classification and regression tree (CART) analysis to distinguish lipoma and lipoma variants from well-differentiated liposarcoma of the extremities and superficial trunk.

Methods: This retrospective study included patients who underwent surgical resection and preoperative contrast-enhanced MR imaging for lipoma, lipoma variants, and well-differentiated liposarcoma in two tertiary referral centers. Six MRI findings (tumor size, anatomical location, tumor depth, shape, enhancement pattern, and presence of intermingled muscle fibers) and two demographic factors (patient age and sex) were assessed to build a classification tree using CART analysis with minimal error cross-validation pruning based on a complexity parameter.

Retethering : A Neurosurgical Viewpoint.

J Korean Neurosurg Soc 2020 May 27;63(3):346-357. Epub 2020 Apr 27.

Division of Pediatric Neurosurgery, Seoul National University Children's Hospital, Seoul, Korea.

During the follow-up period after surgery for spinal dysraphism, a certain portion of patients show neurological deterioration and its secondary phenomena, such as motor, sensory or sphincter changes, foot and spinal deformities, pain, and spasticity. These clinical manifestations are caused by tethering effects on the neural structures at the site of previous operation. The widespread recognition of retethering drew the attention of medical professionals of various specialties because of its incidence, which is not low when surveillance is adequate, and its progressive nature.

Imaging of Abdominal Wall Masses, Masslike Lesions, and Diffuse Processes.

Radiographics 2020 May-Jun;40(3):684-706. Epub 2020 Apr 24.

From the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, Washington University School of Medicine, 510 S Kingshighway Blvd, Campus Box 8131, St Louis, MO 63110 (D.H.B., P.M., W.D.M., V.M.M.); Department of Imaging Sciences, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, NY (D.C.O.); Department of Radiology, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Madison, Wis (M.G.L., P.J.P.); and Department of Radiology, Mayo Clinic Scottsdale, Scottsdale, Ariz (C.O.M.).

Abdominal wall masses, masslike lesions, and diffuse processes are common and often incidental findings at cross-sectional imaging. Distinguishing among these types of masses on the basis of imaging features alone can be challenging. The authors present a diagnostic algorithm that may help in distinguishing different types of abdominal wall masses accurately. Read More

Surgical outcomes by sectioning a filum terminale in patients with terminal syringomyelia.

Childs Nerv Syst 2020 Apr 21. Epub 2020 Apr 21.

Division of Neurosurgery, National Center for Child Health and Development, Okura 2-10-1, Setagaya-ku, Tokyo, 157-8535, Japan.

Background: Although terminal syringomyelia suggests a tethered spinal cord, a consensus has still not been established for surgical indications, when there are no associated abnormalities or only minor associated abnormalities. We analyzed surgical outcomes of sectioning a filum terminale in patients with terminal syringomyelia to elucidate the significance of untethering surgery.

Methods: Fifty-seven pediatric patients with terminal syringomyelia who underwent untethering via sectioning the filum terminale between 2007 and 2018 were retrospectively analyzed. Read More
