Histologic evaluation of parovarian nodules in the cat.

Summary of "Histologic evaluation of parovarian nodules in the cat."

A notable, although relatively uncommon, finding during feline ovariohysterectomy is the presence of parovarian nodules, located proximal to the ovary, near or within the ovarian vascular bundle. They are usually 2-3 mm in diameter, white-to-tan in color and glandular in appearance. The objective of this study was to either decisively reinforce the existing findings reported in the literature, which suggest that these parovarian nodules are incidental adrenocortical nodules that are clinically and surgically insignificant, or capture any samples that were not ectopic adrenal tissue in order to characterize them histologically.

Subcutaneous nodules seen in 20-30% of rheumatoid arthritis patients. They may arise anywhere on the body, but are most frequently found over the bony prominences. The nodules are characterized histologically by dense areas of fibrinoid necrosis with basophilic streaks and granules, surrounded by a palisade of cells, mainly fibroblasts and histiocytes.
