Cough, Hemoptysis and Hair Expectoration: An Intrapulmonary Teratoma.

J Coll Physicians Surg Pak 2018 03;28(3):243-244

Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine, The Aga Khan University and Hospital, Karachi.

Teratomas can be found in different organs of the body and may involve gonads, saccrococcygeal region, mediastinum and other sites. Intrathoracic teratomas always occur in mediastinum and less often arise within the lung. As teratomas mostly involve sex organs (gonads), they rarely occur as extra-gonadal tumors accounting for only 3% of all the cases and very small percentage of such tumors occur in mediastinum.

Immature teratoma presenting as a soft-tissue mass with no evidence of other sites of involvement: a case report.

Diagn Pathol 2016 Aug 15;11(1):76. Epub 2016 Aug 15.

Universidade do Oeste de Santa Catarina, Joaçaba, Brazil.

Background: Germ cell tumors are tumors composed of tissues derived from more than one of the three germinal layers. They are more common in the testes and ovaries, but can present in many different regions in the midline, including the sacral region, retroperitoneum, mediastinum, and brain. Testicular germ cell tumors generally metastasize to the retroperitoneum, lungs, and brain; metastases to soft tissue are very rare. Read More

[Mediastinal germ cell tumors].

Pathologe 2016 Sep;37(5):441-8

Institut für Pathologie, Universitätsmedizin Göttingen, Robert-Koch-Straße 40, 37075, Göttingen, Deutschland.

The mediastinum is among the most frequent anatomic region in which germ cell tumors (GCT) arise, second only to the gonads. Mediastinal GCT (mGCT) account for 16 % of all mediastinal neoplasms. Although the morphology and (according to all available data) the molecular genetics of mediastinal and gonadal GCT are identical, a number of unique aspects exist. Read More

Aim: The causes of gonadotropin-independent precocious puberty are diverse, and often have overlapping clinical and biochemical features. With the exception of congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH), disorders that cause gonadotropin-independent precocious puberty (GIPP) are uncommon. The literature is devoid of any large-scale studies on the etiologic distribution of GIPP. Read More

Mixed germ cell tumor of mediastinum/lung masquerading as hemangioma in fine needle biopsy.

Indian J Pathol Microbiol 2013 Apr-Jun;56(2):158-60

Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center - School of Medicine, Lubbock, USA.

The histological predominance of one component in a germ cell tumor can lead to a mistaken diagnosis. Here, we describe a mediastinal teratoma with predominant vascular proliferation (>90%) which on fine needle biopsy was diagnosed as a pulmonary hemangioma. Later, resection specimen revealed other components constituting ~4%, changing the diagnosis while illustrating theimportance of careful evaluation. Read More

Department of Pathology, Medical College, Kolkata, India.

Intrathoracic teratomas are usually seen in the mediastinum; they rarely occur in the lung as intrapulmonary teratomas. The criteria for pulmonary origin are the exclusion of a gonadal site or other extragonadal primary sites and the exclusive origin of the tumour from the lung. Lung teratomas, for reasons unknown, commonly involve the upper lobe. Read More

Section of Perinatal Pathology, Department of Pathology, Karolinska University Hospital and Karolinska Institutet, Huddinge, Stockholm, Sweden.

We report a rare case of a primitive embryonal tumor discovered in the upper anterior mediastinum during routine autopsy of a macerated fetus at the 18th week of gestation. Our diagnosis was based on autopsy findings and histologic examination, which showed neuroepithelial differentiation of the tumor with frequent ependymal-type rosette formation; no structures of other germ cell layer origin were revealed. Additional positive immunohistochemical staining for CD56, CD57, and neurofilament protein confirmed the neural origin of the tumor, whereas the genetic analysis showed no MYCN gene amplification and no 11q23 deletion or rearrangement of EWS locus (22q12).

[Neurogenic tumors of the posterior mediastinum].

Chirurgia (Bucur) 2011 Mar-Apr;106(2):199-203

Clinica de Chirurgie Toracica, Institutul Oncologic Prof. Dr. Alexandru Trestioreanu, U.M.E Carol Davila Bucureşti, România.

The posterior mediastinum is the potential space along each side of the vertebral column and adjacent proximal portions of the ribs--the paravertebral sulci. From the posterior mediastinal tumors, the most commonly encountered are the neurogenic tumors (75%), the remaining 25% are represented by a heterogenous group of rare tumors including teratoma, lymphoma, sarcoma and other lesions arising outside the mediastinum and projecting into the posterior compartment. Surgical excision, by thoracotomy or miniinvasive techniques, is the first line of treatment in the posterior mediastinal tumors. Read More

Germ cell tumors (GCTs) occur most frequently in the gonads and are relatively rare in other sites, such as the pineal gland, neurohypophysis, mediastinum, and retroperitoneum. GCTs are thought to originate from primordial germ cells, which migrate to the primitive gonadal glands in the urogenital ridge. Extragonadal GCTs might also originate from these cells when the cells are sequestered during their migration. Read More

Imaging of cystic masses of the mediastinum.

Radiographics 2002 Oct;22 Spec No:S79-93

Department of Radiology B, University Hospital of Strasbourg, 1 place de l'Hôpital, 67091 Strasbourg, France.

Cystic masses of the mediastinum are well-marginated round lesions that contain fluid and are lined with epithelium. Major cystic masses include congenital benign cysts (ie, bronchogenic, esophageal duplication, neurenteric, pericardial, and thymic cysts), meningocele, mature cystic teratoma, and lymphangioma. Many tumors (eg, thymomas, Hodgkin disease, germ cell tumors, mediastinal carcinomas, metastases to lymph nodes, nerve root tumors) can undergo cystic degeneration-especially after radiation therapy or chemotherapy-and demonstrate mixed solid and cystic elements at computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance (MR) imaging.

[Intraoperative hemodilutional autotransfusion using a closed circuit for patients of Jehovah's Witness].

Masui 2000 May;49(5):535-9

Department of Anesthesiology, Kurume University School of Medicine.

We conducted hemodilutional autotransfusion using a closed circuit combined with a cell washing reinfusing system (Cell Saver) for two surgical patients of Jehovah's Witness. One was a 12 yr-old boy for extirpation of the teratoma in the anterior mediastinum and another was a 44 yr-old woman for left total hip replacement. The patients and their relatives had consented to the use of blood substitutes, hemodilutional autotransfusion using a closed circuit and Cell Saver. Read More

A case of Klinefelter syndrome with retroperitoneal teratoma.

Yonsei Med J 2000 Feb;41(1):136-9

Department of Clinical Pathology, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Klinefelter syndrome (KS) is often associated with various neoplasms, especially germ cell tumors. Mediastinum is the most favored site of extragonadal germ cell tumors with KS, which is somewhat different from those without KS. The retroperitoneal germ cell tumor in KS is very rare. Read More

The pathology of late recurrence of testicular germ cell tumors.

Am J Surg Pathol 2000 Feb;24(2):257-73

Department of Pathology, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, USA.

A total of 91 men had histologically documented late recurrences of testicular germ cell tumors characterized by a complete response to treatment with a subsequent disease-free interval of at least 2 years and no evidence of a second primary lesion. Ninety percent of the patients for whom information was available received chemotherapy shortly after their initial diagnosis of testicular germ cell tumors; most of the other patients were known to have stage I disease initially. Overall, 60% of patients had teratoma in their late recurrences, including 20 patients (22%) in whom teratoma was the only element. Read More

Germ-cell tumors of the mediastinum.

Authors:
N Weidner

Semin Diagn Pathol 1999 Feb;16(1):42-50

Department of Pathology, University of California, San Francisco 94143, USA.

Mediastinal germ-cell tumors (GCTs) usually occur within the anterior mediastinum, accounting for about 15% of all mediastinal cysts and tumors. They are associated with the thymus, presumably arising from extragonadal germ cells or thymic cells with germ-cell potential. Mediastinal seminoma develops primarily in young males with rare cases reported in females; likewise, embryonal carcinoma, endodermal sinus tumor or yolk-sac tumor, choriocarcinoma, and malignant mixed or combined GCTs also overwhelmingly affect males.

Fine needle aspiration cytology of primary mediastinal germ cell tumors.

Acta Cytol 1995 Jul-Aug;39(4):725-32

Department of Pathology, Niigata University School of Medicine, Japan.

Fine needle aspiration cytology was performed on six patients with malignant mediastinal germ cell tumor: 1 pure seminoma, 1 pure embryonal carcinoma, 1 pure yolk sac tumor and 3 mixed germ cell tumors containing teratoma. Their cytologic features were compared with each other and with the cytologic features of thymoma, which arises commonly in the anterior mediastinum. A definitive cytologic diagnosis could be made only in the cases of seminoma because of its characteristic cytologic features. Read More

Retroperitoneal teratoma as first sign of Klinefelter's syndrome.

Arch Dis Child 1995 Feb;72(2):163-4

Department of Paediatrics, University Hospital, Free University of Brussels, Belgium.

A 5 month old boy with a retroperitoneal teratoma was found to have a 47 XXY karyotype indicating Klinefelter's syndrome. This observation suggests that patients with the syndrome may be at risk of germinal tumours in sites other than those usually reported (mediastinum, brain, and testes). Read More

Definition of a new entity of malignant extragonadal germ cell tumors.

Genes Chromosomes Cancer 1995 Jan;12(1):8-15

Department of Medical Genetics, University of Groningen, The Netherlands.

Two malignant extragonadal germ cell tumors are reported, histologically classified as immature teratomas, having pseudodiploid karyotypes with complex structural rearrangements but lacking isochromosome 12p or other rearrangements involving 12p. The absence of 12p material in structural rearrangements was confirmed by chromosome painting. In the two tumors the following common chromosomal breakpoints were found: 6p21, 6p22, 6q23, and 11q13.

Rhabdomyosarcomas of the anterior mediastinum: report of four cases unassociated with germ cell, teratomatous, or thymic carcinomatous components.

Hum Pathol 1994 Apr;25(4):349-56

Department of Pathology, Mount Sinai Medical Center, Miami Beach, FL 33140.

Four cases are presented of primary anterior mediastinal tumors in young adults that were characterized by solid, infiltrative lesions showing histologic and immunohistochemical features of rhabdomyoblastic differentiation. The patients were three men and one woman between 19 and 27 years of age (mean age, 23 years). All patients presented with symptoms referable to their tumors, including cough, chest pain, dyspnea, and left-sided pleural effusion. Read More

[Retroperitoneal teratomas in the perinatal period. Review of the literature concerning a neonatal, immature, aggressive teratoma].

Ann Pediatr (Paris) 1993 Dec;40(10):613-21

Laboratoire d'Anatomie Pathologique, Centre Paul Strauss, Strasbourg.

A neonate with an immature, poorly demarcated retroperitoneal teratoma invading the aorta-vena cava space died immediately after surgery. Among 34 cases of retroperitoneal teratoma discovered during the first postnatal month, including one renal case and ours, eight can be considered malignant on the basis of histology in two cases and clinical course in six. Five of these tumors exhibited a significant immature component. Read More

[Two cases of intrapulmonary teratoma].

Nihon Kyobu Geka Gakkai Zasshi 1993 Mar;41(3):498-502

Department of Surgery, Nagoya City University School of Medicine, Japan.

We encountered two unusual cases of intrapulmonary teratoma, one in a 31-year-old female and the other in a 15-year-old female. The chief complaint of both patients was fever, and in both a consolidation was detected in the left upper lobe using routine radiography. We performed left upper lobectomy for the former patient and segmentectomy of the left lingual segment for the latter. Read More

[A case of mediastinal teratoma--differentiation from lung abscess and bronchogenic carcinoma].

Nihon Kyobu Shikkan Gakkai Zasshi 1992 Feb;30(2):328-32

Department of Medicine and Surgery, School of Medicine, Tokai University, Kanagawa, Japan.

A 38-year-old man was admitted with persistent productive cough and right anterior chest pain. Chest X-ray showed two large masses connected with each other, one in the right lung field and the other in the anterior mediastinum. A tentative diagnosis of either lung abscess or bronchogenic carcinoma was initially made, because of elevated serum tumor markers (SLX and SCC) and persisting refractory inflammatory sings.
