Selection of mucocele management technique: considerations in pediatric patients.

Gen Dent 2022 Jul-Aug;70(4):48-53

The objectives of this article are to describe the surgical excision of an oral mucocele in a 9-year-old boy and to examine the literature on mucocele management approaches, highlighting their advantages and disadvantages in terms of a patient's ability to cooperate in the dental chair. In the present case, a 9-year-old boy who was known to be a cooperative patient underwent conventional surgical excision and tolerated the procedure well. A review of the literature from 2010 to 2018 revealed 20 relevant studies outlining a variety of approaches to mucocele management, including surgical excision, intralesional corticosteroid injection, laser removal, micromarsupialization, cryosurgery, and withholding treatment for cases in which a lesion is small and allowed to spontaneously regress.

Clinicopathologic parameters and outcomes of mucinous neoplasms confined to the appendix: a benign entity with excellent prognosis.

Mod Pathol 2022 Jun 8. Epub 2022 Jun 8.

Department of Pathology, Molecular and Cell Based Medicine, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, NY, USA.

Appendiceal mucinous neoplasms (AMNs), characterized by expansile or "pushing" growth of neoplastic epithelium through the appendix wall, are sometimes accompanied by peritoneal involvement, the extent and grade of which largely determine clinical presentation and long-term outcomes. However, the prognosis of tumors entirely confined to the appendix is still debated and confusion remains regarding their biologic behavior and, consequently, their clinical management and even diagnostic nomenclature. We evaluated AMNs limited to the appendix from 337 patients (median age: 58 years, interquartile range (IQR): 47-67), 194 (57. Read More

Mucocele-like Lesions of the Breast.

Am Surg 2022 Jun 8:31348221087918. Epub 2022 Jun 8.

Department of Surgery, 5223Atrium Health Navicent, Mercer University School of Medicine, Macon, GA, USA.

Mucocele-like lesions of the breast (MLL) are believed to be due to mucinous ducts extruding their contents into the surrounding stroma. MLLs are a rare entity usually identified by calcifications noted on routine screening mammography. Surgical excision has been recommended due to the propensity for these lesions to harbor atypical ductal hyperplasia (ADH) or malignancy. Read More

Vet Radiol Ultrasound 2022 May 30. Epub 2022 May 30.

Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies and Roslin Institute, The University of Edinburgh, Roslin, UK.

Sialoceles are an uncommon canine salivary gland disease, and complete surgical resection is important for a positive outcome. Radiographic sialography has been described as a diagnostic test for presurgical planning; however, superimposition artifacts may limit the diagnosis and detection of all affected glands. Computed tomographic (CT) sialography is a promising technique for delineating the salivary gland apparatus. Read More
