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 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

Tumor-like lesions of the urinary bladder.

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.

Electron microscopy in the diagnosis and academic study of myofibroblastic lesions is discussed. Myofibroblasts from granulation tissue and tumor stroma are regarded as the nearest equivalent to a "normal" myofibroblast population with which to define myofibroblastic differentiation in tumoral and pseudotumoral lesions. Histological features include a plump-spindle-cell morphology, with an ill-defined cytoplasm paler and less fibrillar than in smooth-muscle cells, and matrix collagen. Read More

Nodular fasciitis represents reactive myofibroblastic proliferative lesions in the subcutaneous tissue, skeletal muscles, and fascia. Uncommon clinical and pathological variants of nodular fasciitis, such as intravascular, cranial, ossifying, and proliferative fasciitis, have been described. Six cases documenting a dermal location of nodular fasciitis have been reported in the English literature. Read More

Mesenchymal tumors and tumor-like lesions of the female genital tract: a selective review with emphasis on recently described entities.

Int J Gynecol Pathol 2001 Apr;20(2):105-27

James Homer Wright Pathology Laboratories, Massachusetts General Hospital, Department of Pathology, Fruit Street, Boston, MA 02114, USA.

The diverse mesenchymal tumors and tumor-like lesions that occur within the female genital tract include a number of lesions that have only been recently characterized and others about which there is new information. In this group are the aggressive angiomyxoma, angiomyofibroblastoma, and cellular angiofibroma. Criteria for the distinction of these lesions are reviewed, as are the pathologic features of prognostic significance in assessing smooth muscle tumors of the vulva. Read More

Postoperative/posttraumatic spindle cell nodule of the skin: the dermal analogue of nodular fasciitis.

Am J Dermatopathol 1999 Jun;21(3):220-4

Section of Dermatopathology, Washington University Medical Center, St. Louis, Missouri 63110-1094, USA.

Spindle cell proliferations of the skin are diverse, both morphologically and mechanistically. The authors have encountered four examples of a distinctive reactive/reparative cutaneous spindle cell lesion that shows homology with ones seen in the genitourinary tract and oral cavity and that is known as "postoperative/posttraumatic spindle cell nodule" (PSCN). These occurred in the skin of the face and scalp (2 cases), arm (1 case), and vulvar skin (one case), and were clearly related historically to prior episodes of trauma. Read More

Postoperative spindle cell nodule of the bladder: a diagnostic problem.

Urol Int 1996 ;56(2):119-21

Department of Urology, Leighton Hospital, Crewe, UK.

A case of postoperative spindle cell nodule of the bladder is reported. Initial pathological analysis was interpreted as leiomyosarcoma for which the patient underwent radical cystectomy, but subsequent reviews were consistent with a postoperative spindle cell nodule. Recognition of this benign, yet rare lesion is of significant importance to urologists, pathologists, and to the patient who may undergo extensive surgical procedure unnecessarily. Read More

Post-operative spindle cell nodule of the vulva.

Histopathology 1995 Jun;26(6):571-4

Department of Histopathology, South Manchester University Hospitals NHS Trust, UK.

A case of post-operative spindle cell nodule arising in the vulva of a 33-year old woman is reported and the relevant literature reviewed. This is an uncommon, benign lesion which develops soon after a surgical procedure and which is composed of mitotically active spindle cells, causing possible confusion with sarcoma. Knowledge of the clinical history and an awareness of the existence of such lesions is necessary in order to avoid misinterpretation. Read More

Perce the permissive pathologist: a cautionary tale of one who misdiagnosed a pseudosarcoma, killed the patient and was found out.

Authors:
P W Allen L J Allen

Aust N Z J Surg 1994 Apr;64(4):273-4

Histopathology Department, Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Woodville, South Australia.

Perce, a promising young trainee pathologist, correctly recognizes a biopsy of a benign pseudosarcoma but his diagnosis is overruled by the less well read Head of Pathology. Acting under instructions from his Chief, Perce knowingly and without protest 'signs out' this benign condition as a sarcoma. The surgeon accepts the diagnosis without question and performs radical surgery, which is complicated by postoperative haemorrhage from which the patient dies. Read More

[Postoperative fusiform cell nodule. Relationship with other benign fibrous proliferations].

Arch Esp Urol 1994 Jan-Feb;47(1):32-6

Servicio de Anatomía Patológica, Complejo Hospitalario de León, España.

We report on a patient who developed postoperative spindle cell nodule one month following TURP for prostatic adenocarcinoma. The foregoing was compared with other benign fibrous lesions from our records: one case of nodular fasciitis and one case of proliferative myositis. Although they were all well-defined and clinically distinct disease entities, a very close relationship concerning their origin was demonstrated histologically and immunohistochemically. Read More

Posttraumatic spindle cell nodule of the buccal mucosa. Report of a case.

Oral Surg Oral Med Oral Pathol 1992 Aug;74(2):212-5

Department of Pathology, Akron General Medical Center, Ohio.

A benign posttraumatic spindle cell proliferation arising at a site of laceration in the buccal mucosa of a 19-year old man is described. This lesion, which histologically mimicked a leiomyosarcoma, appears to represent a reactive process similar to that described as postoperative spindle cell nodules of the genitourinary tract. Reexcision of the area 1 month after biopsy revealed only scar formation and mild chronic inflammation. Read More

Postoperative spindle-cell nodule of urinary bladder with unusual intracytoplasmic inclusions.

Diagn Cytopathol 1992 ;8(2):171-6

Department of Pathology, Mercy Hospital and Medical Center, Chicago, IL 60616.

Postoperative spindle-cell nodule of the urinary bladder (or in the absence of previous surgical procedure, inflammatory pseudotumor) is a reactive process of unknown etiology mimicking a sarcoma. Intracytoplasmic inclusion bodies were noted inside the atypical spindle cells on Diff-Quik stained smears in a recent case of this entity. Although fluorescence was noted in the inclusion bodies with monoclonal antibodies against the major outer membrane protein of the Chlamydia species, the exact nature of these inclusion bodies remains unknown.

Histol Histopathol 1990 Oct;5(4):505-12

Department of Pathology, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston 02114.

Spindle cell proliferations of diverse types which vary greatly in their behavior may occur in the urinary bladder. Some of them such as the inflammatory pseudotumor and the postoperative spindle cell nodule are reactive and clinically benign although they may be responsible for significant symptoms. On the other hand, certain other lesions such as sarcomatoid carcinomas are typically highly malignant tumours. Read More

Postoperative spindle cell nodule of bladder.

Urology 1990 Apr;35(4):342-4

Division of Urology and Pathology, A.Z. Sint Jan, Bruges, Belgium.

We describe a new tumor of the bladder resembling sarcoma. The tumor typically develops after damage to the bladder wall, and the clinicopathologic features make it possible to recognize it as a benign lesion rather than the malignant lesions for which it can be mistaken. Read More

Postoperative spindle cell nodule of the prostate and bladder.

J Urol 1990 Apr;143(4):824-6

Department of Pathology, University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, Houston 77030.

Postoperative spindle cell nodule of the prostate and bladder (a rare lesion often misinterpreted as sarcoma) is important to recognize. The nodule consists of a reactive proliferation of spindle cells occurring up to several months after a lower genitourinary tract procedure, such as transurethral resection or biopsy. We report on 5 patients with a spindle cell nodule after a prior operation on the prostate or bladder. Read More

Arch Pathol Lab Med 1988 May;112(5):566-8

Department of Pathology, Vancouver General Hospital, British Columbia, Canada.

The clinical and pathologic features of a case of postoperative spindle-cell nodule within the endometrium are reported, a lesion hitherto undescribed in this site. The nodule was found in the hysterectomy specimen from a 75-year-old woman, 2 1/2 weeks after a dilatation and curettage had revealed a well-differentiated endometrial adenocarcinoma. On histologic examination, the lesion consisted of a densely cellular proliferation of mitotically active spindle cells, which was initially interpreted as sarcoma. Read More
