Alveolar adenoma with poor imaging: a case report.

J Int Med Res 2020 Mar 10;48(3):300060519885269. Epub 2019 Nov 10.

Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, The First Affiliated Hospital of Nanchang University, Nanchang, Jiangxi, China.

Alveolar adenoma is an isolated, well-defined peripheral lung tumor that originates from type II alveolar cells. The tumor consists of a network of simple, low-cubic, epithelium-coated lacunae with varying amounts of fine and inconspicuous-to-thick spindle cells that sometimes contain mucus sample matrix. Few cases of alveolar adenoma have been reported. Read More

Incidentally Found Postoperative Spindle Cell Nodule of the Breast 6 Months After Ultrasound-Guided Vacuum-Assisted Excision.

Ultrasound Q 2017 Mar;33(1):55-57

*Department of Medicine, Graduate School, Kyung Hee University, and †Department of Radiology, Kyung Hee University Hospital, College of Medicine, Kyung Hee University, Seoul, South Korea.

Postoperative spindle cell nodule (PSCN) is a very rare pathologic complication that can occur in association with a recent core needle biopsy, surgery, or trauma. Cases of PSCN have been reported in the lower genitourinary tract, endometrium, and thyroid but are rare in the breast. Herein, we report an ultrasound-guided biopsy-proven PSCN after ultrasound-guided vacuum-assisted excision in the breast. Read More

Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumour of the urinary bladder: the role of immunoglobulin G4 and the comparison of two immunohistochemical antibodies and fluorescence in-situ hybridization for the detection of anaplastic lymphoma kinase alterations.

Histopathology 2015 Jul 29;67(1):20-38. Epub 2015 Jan 29.

Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor of the bladder.

Arch Pathol Lab Med 2014 Oct;138(10):1272-7

From the Department of Pathology, University of Michigan Medical School, Ann Arbor.

We illustrate a case of an inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) involving the bladder in a woman with dysuria and review the literature and differential diagnosis. Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor, also referred to as pseudosarcomatous myofibroblastic proliferation, is a rare lesion that can arise in the genitourinary system and is characterized by a fascicular arrangement of myofibroblasts with admixed inflammatory cells and slitlike vessels. Urinary bladder IMT can be a diagnostic pitfall because its histologic features (brisk mitoses, invasion into muscularis propria, and prominent nucleoli) can mimic malignancy. Read More

Pathol Int 2013 Apr;63(4):214-9

Department of Pathology, Osaka Red Cross Hospital, Osaka 543-8555, Japan.

A rare case of a mixed endometrial stromal and smooth muscle tumor arising in the uterus of a 74-year-old woman is reported. The patient underwent hysterectomy for an enlarging uterine mass, and a large intramural tumor, showing marked central hyaline necrosis with calcification, was found.

Myofibroblastic proliferations of the bladder in adults are unusual lesions with a benign course. These proliferations, whether spontaneous or secondary to instrumentation, have identical morphology and behaviour. Histologically, similar lesions have been reported in the literature using different names, such as inflammatory pseudotumour, pseudosarcomatous fibromyxoid tumour, nodular fasciitis, postoperative spindle cell nodule.

Tumor-like lesions of the urinary bladder.

Robert H Young

Mod Pathol 2009 Jun;22 Suppl 2:S37-52

The James Homer Wright Pathology Laboratories, Department of Pathology, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Warren Building, Fruit Street, Boston, MA 2114, USA.

Tumor-like lesions of the urinary bladder are reviewed emphasizing those that are most diagnostically challenging for the pathologist and may result in serious errors in patient care if misinterpreted. The first category considered, pseudocarcinomatous proliferations, represents an area of bladder pathology only recently appreciated as being particularly treacherous because of the extent to which irregular islands of benign epithelial cells may seemingly penetrate the lamina propria and cause confusion with carcinoma. Somewhat orderly proliferations of this type have been known for years, von Brunn's nests, and are rarely a challenge for the experienced, but proliferations of an irregular nature such as may be seen most often as a result of prior radiation therapy, but sometimes due to chemotherapy or even ischemia, represent a challenging interpretation.

Postoperative spindle cell nodule of the breast: Pseudosarcomatous myofibroblastic proliferation following endo-surgery.

Pathol Int 2008 Dec;58(12):787-91

Department of Anatomical Pathology, Marqués de Valdecilla University Hospital, Medical Faculty, University of Cantabria, Santander, Spain.

Despite the frequent use of fine-needle aspiration, core biopsy and surgery, postoperative spindle cell nodule (PSCN) is a rare pathological complication that may be diagnostically treacherous. Presented herein is the case of a 52-year-old woman who developed a 7 mm mammary nodular lesion 66 days after removal of an area of columnar cell hyperplasia involving cellular and architectural atypia, performed with the Mammotome Breast Biopsy System. The lesion was highly cellular and composed of intersecting fascicles of plump spindle cells with blunt-ended elongated nuclei and nucleoli easily visible. Read More

Department of Medical Genetics, Rikshospitalet-Radiumhospitalet Medical Centre, Ullernchaussen 70, 0310 Oslo, Norway.

Postoperative spindle cell nodule is a localized, non-neoplastic, reparative lesion composed of closely packed proliferating spindle cells and capillaries simulating a leiomyosarcoma. The lesion typically develops at the site of a recent surgical wound several weeks to months postoperatively. Local recurrence of postoperative spindle cell nodules has not been reported, even after incomplete resection. Read More

Pseudosarcomatous and sarcomatous proliferations of the bladder.

Department of Urologic Oncology, The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX 77030, USA.

Pseudosarcomatous fibromyxoid tumor (PFT), postoperative spindle cell nodule (PSN), sarcoma, and sarcomatoid carcinoma of the bladder are frequently difficult to distinguish histopathologically with significant differences in disease-related outcomes. A retrospective review of our pathology registry over the last 25 years identified 7 PFT, 10 PSN, 18 primary bladder sarcomas, and 17 sarcomatoid carcinomas. Most patients with PFT, PSN, sarcoma, and sarcomatoid carcinoma were diagnosed between the ages of 50 to 60 years with PFT and PSN most commonly detected in women. Read More
