J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol 2019 Apr 13. Epub 2019 Apr 13.

Institute of Dermatology, Catholic University - Fondazione Policlinico Universitario A. Gemelli IRCCS, Rome, Italy.

A 66-year-old psoriatic patient was examined for the occurrence of annular lesions with a dermatomeric distribution on the trunk since four weeks. The patient claimed that the lesions appeared at the site of a previous Herpes Zoster virus (HZV) infection, which had been treated with intravenous acyclovir three months earlier. At the time of the annular eruption, the patient was under treatment with apremilast (30 mg twice daily) for moderate-to-severe psoriasis, and systemic mycophenolate mofetil (1,250 gr daily), methylprednisolone (4 mg daily) and tacrolimus (1 mg daily) due to liver transplantation four years earlier for a cryptogenic liver cirrhosis.

Academic Unit of Oral and Maxillofacial Medicine and Pathology, School of Clinical Dentistry, University of Sheffield, Claremont Crescent, Sheffield, S10 2TA, UK.

Lesions of the gingivae are amongst the commonest lesions seen in patients and the vast majority are reactive hyperplasias, related to a number of chronic irritant stimuli. However, there are a number of entities that have a predilection for the gingivae, which are much less common in other parts of the oral cavity. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the clinical and histological differential diagnoses when presented with a lump on the gingivae, including the approach to diagnosis and diagnostic pitfalls.

Giant cell reparative granuloma of the scapula: report of a case and literature review.

Skeletal Radiol 2019 Jan 4. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

Department of Orthopedics and Orthopedic Oncology, University of Padova, Via Giustiniani 3, Padova, Italy.

Giant cell reparative granulomas (GCRGs) are non-neoplastic inflammatory lesions, usually observed in the maxilla, mandible or small bones of the hands and feet. These lesions present a wide range of morphology and the misinterpretation with other giant cell lesions can often occur. We report the case of a 47-year-old woman with GCRG in the left scapula, presenting some uncommon features: the location (scapula) and age at presentation, the lack of underlying bone disease such as Paget's disease or fibrous dysplasia, the large aggressive expansile aspect of the lesion.

Expansile radiolucent lesion of the Temporomandibular Joint-A diagnostic enigma.

J Oral Biol Craniofac Res 2018 Sep-Dec;8(3):203-205. Epub 2017 Jul 1.

Department of Oral Pathology, Government Dental College and Hospital, St. George Hospital Campus, Near Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus Area, Fort, Mumbai, Maharashtra 400001, India.

Radiolucent lesions of Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) represent a diagnostic challenge and a treatment conundrum. Biopsy of the lesions is technically difficult owing to their complex anatomy. The Differential Diagnosis (DD) includes a wide array of lesions including Simple Bone Cyst, Ameloblastoma, Central Giant Cell Granuloma, Hemangioma, Osteoblastoma, Osteochondroma, Chondroblastoma, Chondrosarcoma, Neurofibroma and metastatic malignant lesions though none has a specific predilection for TMJ.

IL-13-regulated Macrophage Polarization during Granuloma Formation in an In Vitro Human Sarcoidosis Model.

Am J Respir Cell Mol Biol 2019 Jan;60(1):84-95

6 Texas Biomedical Research Institute, San Antonio, Texas.

The mechanisms underlying abnormal granuloma formation in patients with sarcoidosis are complex and remain poorly understood. A novel in vitro human granuloma model was used to determine the molecular mechanisms of granuloma genesis in patients with sarcoidosis in response to putative disease-causing mycobacterial antigens. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) from patients with active sarcoidosis and from normal, disease-free control subjects were incubated for 7 days with purified protein derivative-coated polystyrene beads.

Selected Giant Cell Rich Lesions of the Temporal Bone.

Head Neck Pathol 2018 Sep 1;12(3):367-377. Epub 2018 Aug 1.

Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, 55902, USA.

Giant cell rich lesions of the temporal bone encompass a wide spectrum of disease that includes infectious, reactive, and neoplastic processes. When dealing with any lesion that can potentially involve bone, it is important to understand both the clinical presentation and to correlate the histologic findings with the radiologic imaging. This review discusses the clinical, the pathologic features including the differential diagnosis, and the treatment of some of the more commonly encountered giant cell rich entities in this region.

Solid aneurysmal bone cyst of the humerus mimics metastasis or brown tumor.

Clin Imaging 2018 Nov - Dec;52:117-122. Epub 2018 Jul 24.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA 90033, United States of America.

Solid aneurysmal bone cyst (ABC) is a rare subtype of ABC that most commonly involves the small bones of the hands or feet. We present a case of a solid ABC of the distal humerus in a 52-year-old man with a history of chronic kidney disease and renal cell carcinoma. On imaging with plain radiographs, CT, and MRI, this expansile lucent lesion with solid internal enhancement had an appearance that overlapped with metastasis or brown tumor of hyperparathyroidism.
