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

Microcystic lymphatic malformation presenting as firm, skin-colored papules of the lips.

Pediatr Dermatol 2022 Jun 23. Epub 2022 Jun 23.

Department of Dermatology, Henry Ford Health System, Detroit, Michigan, USA.

Microcystic lymphatic malformation (MiLM), also known as lymphangioma circumscriptum, is a superficial collection of lymphatic vessels measuring <1 cm in the largest diameter, often with a more extensive deeper malformation. It commonly presents as discrete or grouped plaques of clear or hemorrhagic vesicles classically described as "frogspawn"; however, here we describe a case of its unique presentation as firm papules on the lips of a healthy six-year-old child. These skin-colored papules in the absence of vesicles with lymphatic and/or hemorrhagic fluid may not be clinically indicative of MiLM. Read More

M. N. Eye Hospital, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India.

Lymphangiomas are benign hemartomatous tumors that can occur in all parts of the body, but most frequently in the neck (75%), as well as in the axilla and inguinal areas. Surgical removal is very difficult, as it is very fragile and tumor dissection is very difficult. Ultrasound-guided bleomycin injection directly into the cyst collapses the cyst and shrinks the tumor. Read More
