    Colossal pilomatrixoma.
    Ann R Coll Surg Engl 2018 Feb 28;100(2):e38-e40. Epub 2017 Nov 28.
    Division of Pediatric Surgery, UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland, CA United States.
    We describe the largest reported case of pilomatrixoma in the literature. While pilomatrixomas typically present as small soft-tissue nodules of the head, neck and upper extremities, they can also present as much larger masses in atypical locations. When they present in their usual size, pilomatrixomas have typical imaging features and can be correctly diagnosed with imaging studies before histological confirmation. Read More

    [Pilomatrixoma in a tattoo].
    Hautarzt 2018 Mar;69(3):242-244
    Klinik für Dermatologie, Allergologie und Phlebologie, Klinikum Bremerhaven Reinkenheide, Postbrookstr. 103, 27574, Bremerhaven, Deutschland.
    A 31-year-old man developed a fast-growing tumor on the right upper arm within a black tattoo, which could be classified histologically as pilomatrixoma. While the age of the patient and the rapid growth of the tumor cannot be regarded as typical findings of pilomatrixomas, the localization on the upper arm is one of their predilection points. Despite the wide spread use of tattoos in the last few decades, tumor development in tattooed skin is rarely reported. Read More

    Periorbital lesions misdiagnosed as dermoid cysts.
    J AAPOS 2017 Dec 28;21(6):509-511. Epub 2017 Oct 28.
    Department of Ophthalmology, College of Medicine, King Saud University, Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Electronic address:
    Several periorbital lesions can be clinically misdiagnosed as dermoid cyst. We retrospectively reviewed the histopathological findings for 97 biopsied periorbital lesions with a clinical diagnosis of dermoid cyst from January 2006 to July 2016 at a single center and identified 5 cases that were eventually found to have been misdiagnosed. The main presenting symptom was a long-standing mobile painless mass with intact overlying skin below the medial aspect of the brow in 4 patients and below the center of the brow in 1 patient.

    Pilomatrix carcinoma is a rare, locally aggressive tumor with a tendency to recur. Distant metastases have been reported, with pulmonary lesions being the most frequent manifestation. Similar to pilomatrixoma, pilomatrix carcinoma typically presents as a nontender, firm dermal swelling and is found most commonly in the head and neck region. Read More

    Multiple pilomatrixomas in a survivor of WNT-activated medulloblastoma leading to the discovery of a germline APC mutation and the diagnosis of familial adenomatous polyposis.
    Pediatr Blood Cancer 2018 Jan 9;65(1). Epub 2017 Aug 9.
    Department of Hematology-Oncology, Children's Minnesota, Minneapolis, Minnesota.
    Because children diagnosed with WNT-activated medulloblastoma have a 10-year overall survival rate of 95%, active long-term follow-up is critically important in reducing mortality from other causes. Here, we describe an 11-year-old adopted female who developed multiple pilomatrixomas 3 years after diagnosis of WNT-activated medulloblastoma, an unusual finding that prompted deeper clinical investigation. A heterozygous germline APC gene mutation was discovered, consistent with familial adenomatous polyposis. Read More

    Genetic basis of calcifying cystic odontogenic tumors.
    PLoS One 2017 28;12(6):e0180224. Epub 2017 Jun 28.
    Department of Oral Pathology, Graduate School of Medical and Dental Sciences, Tokyo Medical and Dental University, Tokyo, Japan.
    Calcifying cystic odontogenic tumors (CCOTs) are benign cystic tumors that form abnormally keratinized ghost cells. Mutations in CTNNB1, which encodes beta-catenin, have been implicated in the development of these tumors, but a causal relationship has not been definitively established. Thus, mutational hot spots in 50 cancer genes were examined by targeted next-generation sequencing in 11 samples of CCOT. Read More

    Diagnostic imaging of benign and malignant neck masses in children-a pictorial review.
    Quant Imaging Med Surg 2016 Oct;6(5):591-604
    Department of Radiology, Alder Hey Children's Hospital, Liverpool, UK.
    Neck masses are frequently encountered in pediatric medicine, and can present a diagnostic dilemma for the clinicians involved. There are several means by which neck masses in children can be subdivided, for example by age at presentation, anatomical location including compartments and fascia of the neck, their classical appearance when imaged, or by etiology. When imaging children the clinicians must be mindful of radiation exposure and as such ultrasound (US) is often attempted first. Read More

    IL-8, IL-8RA (CXCR1) and IL-8RB (CXCR2) expression in pilomatricoma.
    Rom J Morphol Embryol 2016 ;57(1):59-64
    Department of Immunology, "Grigore T. Popa" University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Iassy, Romania;
    Pilomatricoma is a rare benign tumor of the hair follicle matrix cells, which associates during its evolution a foreign body-like inflammatory process. We have investigated three such tumors, two of them displaying a rather poor stroma, while the third was distinctive due to its stroma and large numbers of inflammatory cells infiltrating the tumor. The analysis of IL-8 (interleukin-8), CXCR1 (IL-8RA - IL-8 receptor alpha) and CXCR2 (IL-8RB - IL-8 receptor beta) expression showed that these molecules are present not only in many different types of inflammatory and endothelial cells, but also in several tumor basaloid, transitional and even few ghost cells.
