    A challenging diagnosis: Case report of oral metastasis from gastric adenocarcinoma mimicking pyogenic granuloma.
    Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Mar;97(13):e9934
    Piracicaba Dental School, University of Campinas, Piracicaba, São Paulo.
    Rationale: Oral metastases occur more commonly in bone, but can also manifest in soft tissues and eventually resemble a reactive lesion. Few cases of oral metastases mimicking reactive lesions in soft tissues have been reported to date.

    Patient Concerns: We report a metastasis of gastric carcinoma (GC) to the oral mucosa without bone involvement in a 43 yom clinically and microscopically mimicking a reactive lesion. Read More

    Vascular Tumors in Infants: Case Report and Review of Clinical, Histopathologic, and Immunohistochemical Characteristics of Infantile Hemangioma, Pyogenic Granuloma, Noninvoluting Congenital Hemangioma, Tufted Angioma, and Kaposiform Hemangioendothelioma.
    Am J Dermatopathol 2018 Apr;40(4):231-239
    Professor, Department of Dermatology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN.
    Vascular tumors in infants present a diagnostic and treatment dilemma for both clinicians and pathologists. Infantile hemangioma, the most common vascular tumor in infants, can be confused for other less common vascular tumors in infants. Correct and timely diagnosis is important, as some vascular tumors can be associated with life-threatening coagulopathy. Read More

    Renal cell carcinoma metastatic to the maxillary gingiva: A case report and review of the literature.
    J Oral Maxillofac Pathol 2018 Jan;22(Suppl 1):S102-S107
    Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, USA.
    Tumor metastasis to the oral cavity is rare and is usually an indication of late-stage disease and poor prognosis. While, there are reports of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) metastatic to oral cavity, vast majority of them are to the jaw. Herein, we present a case of a 78-year-old woman with RCC metastasis limited to the oral soft tissue without any bone involvement. Read More

    Occipital intraosseous dermoid cyst with restricted diffusion on magnetic resonance imaging in a child.
    Radiol Case Rep 2018 Feb 23;13(1):248-253. Epub 2017 Dec 23.
    Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences, Emory University School of Medicine, 1405 Clifton Rd NE, Atlanta, GA 30322 USA.
    A 4-year-old girl presented repeatedly with a complicated occipital mass, which was erroneously treated as a pyogenic granuloma. Imaging performed before a planned surgical resection detected an underlying intraoccipital dermoid with a sinus tract to the skin surface and extension into the posterior fossa. This case highlights the value of high-resolution computed tomography imaging for depiction of anatomic details and the value of magnetic resonance imaging for differential diagnosis and surgical management.

    Classification of the Clinical Images for Benign and Malignant Cutaneous Tumors Using a Deep Learning Algorithm.
    J Invest Dermatol 2018 Feb 8. Epub 2018 Feb 8.
    Department of Dermatology, Asan Medical Center, Ulsan University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea. Electronic address:

    Localized Gingival Overgrowths: A Report of Six Cases.
    Contemp Clin Dent 2017 Oct-Dec;8(4):667-671
    Department of Periodontics, Guru Nanak Institute of Dental Sciences and Research, Kolkata, West Bengal, India.
    Localized gingival overgrowths are commonly encountered in our day-to-day clinical practice and often present a diagnostic dilemma to the clinicians. These lesions vary depending on the location, site, extent, histology, and/or etiopathology. Although most of the localized gingival enlargements represent the reactive lesion to plaque accumulation, the differential diagnosis ranges from peripheral fibroma to pyogenic granuloma to peripheral fibroma with ossification and/or calcification, peripheral giant cell granuloma, etc. Read More

    Department of Pathology, Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine, 6 Ohio Drive, New Hyde Park, NY, 11040, USA.
    A 32-year-old male presented with a right thumb lesion of 11-month duration. A clinical diagnosis of pyogenic granuloma was entertained but the lesion failed to respond to conservative therapy and eventually necessitated amputation of his thumb. MRI of the right thumb showed an ill-defined, heterogeneously enhancing, infiltrating mass within the dorsal soft tissues abutting the distal phalanx and measuring 4. Read More

    Angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia (ALHE) is a rare chronic inflammatory disorder of unknown etiology that most commonly presents as painless lymphadenopathy or subcutaneous masses in the head and neck region. The pathogenesis of the disease is not yet clear. The differential diagnosis is determined using characteristic histological features, such as significant vascular proliferation, lymphocytes and eosinophil inflammation in the dermis. Read More

    Acral angioosteoma cutis: A rare case.
    Indian J Dermatol Venereol Leprol 2017 Nov 1. Epub 2017 Nov 1.
    Department of Pathology, Kırklareli State Hospital, Kırklareli, Turkey.
    Acral angioosteoma cutis is a rare and benign cutaneous lesion clinically characterized by an exophytic growth resembling pyogenic granuloma on the acral skin; first described in 2006. Its pathogenesis is still unclear while well-formed capillaries, pale stroma, bland fibroblast-like cells, and multiple tiny spicules of woven bone constitute the histological hallmarks. Here, we present a case of acral angioosteoma cutis in a 34-year-old man to increase awareness regarding this rare condition. Read More

    Extragingival Pregnancy Pyogenic Granuloma on the Lip.
    J Craniofac Surg 2018 Jan;29(1):e49-e50
    School of Medicine, University of Seville, Virgen del Rocio University Hospital, Seville, Spain.
    Pregnancy pyogenic granuloma is considered a benign common growth that usually develops on the gingiva in the second and third trimester of gestation, in response to local irritation, trauma or hormonal factors. Here, the authors report a case of a primigravida who presented an extragingival pyogenic granuloma with a rapid progression in the post-partum. The occurrence on the lower lip in the first few days after delivery was a relatively rarity in the present case which provoked a meaningful state of anxiety and cancerophobia to the female.

    A Research of Pyogenic Granuloma Genesis Factor With Immunohistochemical Analysis.
    J Craniofac Surg 2017 Nov;28(8):2068-2072
    *Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery †Department of Pathology, College of Medicine, Soonchunhyang University, Cheonan, Republic of Korea.
    Pyogenic granuloma (PG) is a type of vascular tumor for which the growth mechanism is poorly understood. Estrogen and progesterone may influence vascular malformations by increasing neovascularization in the lesions. Pregnancy tumor is a term for PG that occurs on the gingival mucosa of pregnant women in response to local irritation or injury. Read More

    Masses of the Nose, Nasal Cavity, and Nasopharynx in Children.
    Radiographics 2017 Oct;37(6):1704-1730
    From the Department of Radiology, Nationwide Children's Hospital, 700 Children's Dr, Columbus, OH 43205 (D.P.R.); and Department of Radiology, Cincinnati Children's Hospital, Cincinnati, Ohio (E.S.O., B.L.K.).
    A wide range of masses develop in the nose, nasal cavity, and nasopharynx in children. These lesions may arise from the nasal ala or other structures of the nose, including the mucosa covering any surface of the nasal cavity, the cartilaginous or osseous portion of the nasal septum, the nasal turbinates, and the nasal bones. Lesions may also arise from the nasopharynx or adjacent structures and involve the nose by way of direct extension. Read More
