The diagnosis of solitary cutaneous mastocytoma is mainly clinical, based on lesion morphology, the presence of a positive Darier sign, and absence of systemic involvement. Knowledge of this condition is important so that an accurate diagnosis can be made.
Solitary pulmonary capillary hemangioma (SPCH) is a rare lung tumor typically presenting as pure or part-solid ground-glass nodules (GGNs) on computed tomography (CT), which clinically resembles early lung cancer.
Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is known to be associated with B-cell lymphoproliferative disorders, and EBV-positive mucocutaneous ulcer (EBV-MCU) is a recently described entity observed in immunocompromised individuals. EBV-MCU is an aggressive appearing ulcerated lesion seen in the skin, oral cavity, and gastrointestinal tract. The process has Hodgkin-like features with a self-limited, indolent course, generally responding well to conservative management. We present a case of EBV-MCU recently encountered in a 5...
Clear cell acanthoma is an uncommon type of benign epithelial tumor. Typically, it is a solitary lesion found on the lower limbs. It presents as a nodule or small plaque with slow and well-defined growth. Diagnosis used to be clinical and histopathological, but the advent of dermoscopy has led to an increase in diagnostic accuracy. We describe a case in which dermoscopy proved highly useful for diagnosis of the lesion.
A 96-year-old woman presented with a rapidly enlarging lesion overlying the suprasternal notch. The lesion originated as a small, erythematous, scaly macule that rapidly increased in size over 8 weeks and became an ulcerated nodule measuring 5 cm in diameter and 4.5 cm in thickness. A 4-mm punch biopsy showed a poorly differentiated tumor with cells that were positive for CAM 5.2 and cytokeratin 20 in a dotlike paranuclear pattern and negative for cytokeratin 5/6, human melanoma black 45, and leukocyte comm...
Primary bone lymphoma without classic nodal lesions or advanced disease may be mistaken for other osseous diseases, especially when involving a single bone site. In this patient, a series of imaging modalities including MRI, bone scan, and F-FDG PET/CT revealed only 1 solitary osseous lytic lesion with abnormal uptake in the third thoracic vertebra, suggesting a primary skeletal malignancy. The subsequent histopathologic examination confirmed the diagnosis of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. After chemotherap...
TERT promoter mutations have been reported in 22% of solitary fibrous tumors (SFT) and have been associated with poor outcomes. We performed testing for TERT hotspot mutations in a large series of solitary fibrous tumors in order to confirm this finding and explore clinicopathologic correlates of mutation status.
We report the case of a 74-year-old man with a giant cell tumour (GCT) of the right maxilla and pterygoid process. The patient presented to the maxillofacial and head and neck surgery clinic with an ulcerated lesion of the hard palate. Initial workup with CT revealed a mass within the right maxillary sinus and pterygoid process with associated bone expansion and erosion. Biopsy showed a GCT with mucosal ulceration. Two years after surgical resection, a follow-up CT revealed tumour recurrence involving the r...
The adrenal gland is a frequent site for metastasis, and a solitary adrenal mass is often observed during staging workup or imaging follow-up in patients with extra-adrenal malignancy. To create an appropriate management plan, it is essential to distinguish between benign adrenal lesions and metastasis in patients with extra-adrenal cancer having solitary adrenal masses. Therefore, here we evaluated the predictive factors for adrenal metastasis in patients with extra-adrenal malignancy having solitary adren...
In this study, we report a case of solitary Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) without skull or systemic lesions, including reviewing the initial magnetic resonance (MR) findings of cerebral LCH. A 36-year-old male patient presented with generalized tonic-clonic type seizure. Brain MR imaging showed a 3cm mass lesion involving the right frontal lobe. It showed iso-intensity on T1-weighted images and hyperintensity on T2-weighted images. After gadolinium enhancement, the mass showed heterogeneous enhancemen...
Background and purpose - Neurite orientation dispersion and density imaging (NODDI) is a new technique that applies a three-diffusion-compartment biophysical model. We assessed the usefulness of NODDI for the differentiation of glioblastoma from solitary brain metastasis. Methods - NODDI data were prospectively obtained on a 3 T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner from patients with previously untreated, histopathologically confirmed glioblastoma (n = 9) or solitary brain metastasis (n = 6). ...
Solitary fibrous tumors (SFTs) are rare mesenchymal neoplasms commonly involving visceral or parietal pleura. We present the first report of tumor-to-tumor metastasis involving a pulmonary adenocarcinoma donor and an intradural SFT recipient. The patient presented with a 1 year history of diffuse back pain. A spinal intradural contrast-enhancing mass at the T9/10 level and a tumor of the lung were diagnosed radiologically. Bronchoscopic biopsy confirmed pulmonary adenocarcinoma in the right upper lung lobe...
Although wound or traumatic myiasis is common in tropical countries, only recently cases associated with underlying dermatoses, such as seborrheic dermatitis and psoriasis, have been reported. We describe a patient with seborrheic dermatitis and an ulcerated lesion on the scalp, in which the dermatological examination with the aid of dermoscopy allowed the identification of larvae (maggots) compatible with infestation by Cochliomyia hominivorax. Treatment was performed with oral and topical ivermectin, foll...
Solitary fibrous tumors are rare spindle cell tumors of mesenchymal origin most commonly found in the pleura and peritoneum. In contrast, extra-serosal locations are rare. We present a 41-year-old female with a progressively enlarging left-sided neck mass of one-year duration with subsequent rapid-onset growth over two months, and was pathologically confirmed to be a benign solitary fibrous tumor of the thyroid gland.
A 28-year-old man of Middle-Eastern descent presented with a raised, pearly, slightly pigmented lesion on the right nasal ala. The lesion had been present for approximately 4 months. An excisional biopsy was taken, and the lesion measured 1.0 cm × 0.9 cm in dimension. The cut surface revealed a firm, white to tan nodule located within the dermis. The patient had no other significant medical history. After the initial excision, the lesion did not recur.
Anticoagulation therapy is indicated to prevent stroke in atrial flutter (AFL) and atrial fibrillation (AF) patients. However, the outcomes of solitary AFL patients may differ from those with AFL who develop AF during follow-up. This study aimed to investigate the differences in clinical outcomes: (i) among patients with solitary AFL, AF, and AFL developing AF thereafter and (ii) between solitary AFL patients with vs. without anticoagulation therapy.
Ulceration of carotid arterial plaque is associated with cerebral events. Detection of ulcerated plaques will benefit patient from stroke and other ischemic events. The aim of this study was to evaluate morphology of atherosclerotic plaques in the carotid arteries and to assess its clinical impact in predicting cerebral events.A total of 386 patients were examined with 256-multislice spiral computed tomographic angiography (MSCTA).It was found that 356 of the 386 patients had cerebral ischemic symptoms. Spe...
An 83-year-old man presented to the dermatology department for an ulcerated skin lesion of the back that had been increasing in size during the past 11 years. The physical examination revealed a well-defined, fleshy, reddish plaque measuring 10 × 20 cm in diameter with erosions and black areas on the surface. The patient underwent surgical excision with margins of 10 mm followed by a skin graft. Histologic section showed a lesion composed of 2 intimately intermingled epithelial and mesenchymal components a...
Gastric cancer metastasis to the lung can rarely manifest as solitary pulmonary nodule. The surgical strategies are different between metastasis from gastric cancer and primary lung cancer; therefore, the clinical prediction of solitary pulmonary nodule is important.
Livedoid vasculopathy is a rare disease related to a hypercoagulable state. It can lead to painful and chronic relapsing ulcerations. We report dermoscopic findings of early, non-ulcerated livedoid vasculopathy in five patients. A mixture of ivory-white atrophic areas with multiple erythematous papules in the center of the lesions is characteristic. With dermoscopy, these papules correspond to glomerular vessels. In the periphery of the lesions some telangiectatic linear vessels complete the picture, althou...
Lesion accrual in multiple sclerosis (MS) is an important and clinically relevant measure, used extensively as an imaging trial endpoint. However, lesions may also shrink or disappear entirely due to atrophy. Although generally ignored or treated as a nuisance, this phenomenon may actually be an important stand-alone imaging biomarker. Therefore, we investigated the rate of brain lesion loss due to atrophy (atrophied lesion volume) in MS subtypes compared to baseline lesion volume and to new and enlarging l...
The objective of this study was to identify the most effective treatment for survival in patients with solitary fibrous tumors of the pleura (SFTP).
