Solitary fibrous tumour (SFT) is an uncommon neoplasm of mesenchymal origin that primarily affects the pleura and mediastinum. SFTs may occur elsewhere in the body including the liver, peritoneum, orbit and other soft tissues. Recent advances in immunohistochemical analysis have allowed greater identification of SFTs. Nevertheless, radiologically it remains difficult ...

We report an isolated giant solid macronodular tuberculoma in an 8-year-old boy. A large-space-occupying lesion in the right lobe with nodular surface and hard consistency mimicked liver malignancy. This case is unusual as the ultrasonography, computed tomography scan, and aspiration cytology were all suggestive of a malignant tumor. Laparotomy confirmed ...

The abdominal ultrasonogram of a dog admitted for acute onset of collapse revealed an abnormally displaced left medial liver lobe with no blood flow. Surgical and histological findings confirmed the ultrasonographic diagnosis of left liver lobe torsion. Ultrasonographic findings were useful and probably sufficient for a correct diagnosis.

The discovery of a liver nodule during postcancer follow-up suggests malignancy recurrence. However, patients previously treated for pediatric cancers are at greater risk of developing benign hepatic tumors, raising the problems of getting an accurate noninvasive diagnosis. Here we report 3 cases of focal nodular hyperplasia of the liver in ...

Biliary cyst tumors (cystadenoma and cystadeno-carcinoma) are an indication for liver resection. They account for only 5% of all solitary cystic lesions of the liver, but differential diagnosis with multiloculated or complicated biliary cysts, atypical hemangiomas, hamartomas and lymphangiomas may be difficult. The most frequent challenge is to differentiate biliary ...

AIM: Although most partial liver resections are performed for malignant lesions, an increasing contingent of benign lesions is also considered for surgery. The aim was to assess post-operative morbidity and mortality after liver resection for benign hepatobiliary lesions in comparison with outcome after resection of malignant lesions. METHODS: A total ...
Mach, Mark-Alexander von
Two former classmates aged 58 with a history of more than 20 years of elevated liver function tests presented to our clinic.

Extraneural metastases from primary central nervous system (CNS) tumors are unusual, and glioblastomas and medulloblastomas constitute the majority of these. That oligodendroglioma frequently seeds within the CNS is well known. However, extraneural metastases of anaplastic oligodendroglioma are rare. We report a 50-year-old woman who developed multiple lung and liver metastases ...
