Ossifying fibromyxoid tumors (OFT), first described in 1989 by Enzinger et al., are rare lesions; malignant OFT (MOFT) are even rarer. We report a large recurrent paraspinal MOFT invading the spine and causing epidural compression in a 70-year-old male, despite prior debulking and radiotherapy. Paraspinal involvement of these tumors has been reported only twice before. We describe its imaging, pathology, and also review the pertinent literature.

Ossifying fibromyxoid tumor (OFMT) is a rare lesion that generally occurs in the soft tissues of proximal limbs, head or neck and presents as a slowly growing mass. Abdominal or trunk locations are ex...
Spinal meningiomas are common spinal tumors, in most cases benign and with a good surgical prognosis. However, specific location, infiltration of spinal cord, vascular encasement, or spinal root invol...
Pheochromocytoma is a rare neuroendocrine tumor that arises from the chromaffin cells of the sympathetic nervous system. Over one third of pheochromocytomas are associated with germline mutations. We ...
Thoracic intradural-extramedullary epidermoid tumor: the relevance for resection of "classical" subarachnoid space microsurgical anatomy in "modern" spinal surgery. Technical note and review of the literature.
Intradural epidermoid tumors of the spinal cord are commonly associated with spinal cord dysraphism or invasive procedures. We report the particular relationships between spinal subarachnoid compartme...
Carcinosarcoma, true malignant mixed tumor, of the parotid is an extremely rare tumor. Pathologically, it is composed of malignant epithelial and malignant mesenchymal elements. The carcinosarcoma of ...
The SciExVR study will evaluate the potential benefit of autologous bone marrow derived stem cells (BMSC) in the treatment of spinal cord injury with evidence of impaired motor or sensory ...
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. It is not yet known which radiation therapy schedule is more effective in treating patients with malignant spinal ...

This Phase II trial will assess and evaluate the efficacy of re-irradiation in patients presenting with malignant spinal cord compression occurring in a previously irradiation area of spin...
The study aimed to pilot the viability of a full scale randomised comparison of 2 steroid doses in malignant spinal cord compression, to establish safety of high dose dexamethasone in this...
A malignant tumor composed of more than one type of neoplastic tissue. (Dorland, 27th ed)
A benign central bone tumor, usually of the jaws (especially the mandible), composed of fibrous connective tissue within which bone is formed.
A unifocal malignant tumor that consists of atypical pathological MAST CELLS without systemic involvement. It causes local destructive growth in organs other than in skin or bone marrow.
A malignant cystic or semisolid tumor most often occurring in the ovary. Rarely, one is solid. This tumor may develop from a mucinous cystadenoma, or it may be malignant at the onset. The cysts are lined with tall columnar epithelial cells; in others, the epithelium consists of many layers of cells that have lost normal structure entirely. In the more undifferentiated tumors, one may see sheets and nests of tumor cells that have very little resemblance to the parent structure. (Hughes, Obstetric-Gynecologic Terminology, 1972, p184)
Tuberculosis of the brain, spinal cord, or meninges (TUBERCULOSIS, MENINGEAL), most often caused by MYCOBACTERIUM TUBERCULOSIS and rarely by MYCOBACTERIUM BOVIS. The infection may be limited to the nervous system or coexist in other organs (e.g., TUBERCULOSIS, PULMONARY). The organism tends to seed the meninges causing a diffuse meningitis and leads to the formation of TUBERCULOMA, which may occur within the brain, spinal cord, or perimeningeal spaces. Tuberculous involvement of the vertebral column (TUBERCULOSIS, SPINAL) may result in nerve root or spinal cord compression. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp717-20)

Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
