In this collective review, we have compiled all the reported cases of smooth muscle tumors of the rectum/anus in the world literature from 1959 to 1989. Our goal was to increase the data pool of smooth muscle tumors by adding these new data to that previously collected from 1881 to ...
Takahashi G - - 1991
A case of leiomyoma of the testis is reported. The origin of the intratesticular leiomyoma is controversial, but recently it is thought to arise from the contractile cells in the tunica propria of the seminiferous tubules. This is the first case reported in Japan and the fifth in the world ...
Korbi S - - 1991
A case of primary hepatic leiomyosarcoma is documented with the use of intermediate filament and actin isoform antibodies. The majority of the tumour cells were positive with alpha smooth muscle actin antibody and about 20% with anti-desmin antibody indicating their smooth muscle nature. A review of the literature revealed 16 ...
Nagahara N - - 1991
A case of testicular mixed germ cell tumor with teratoma in a 36-year-old Japanese male is reported. Histologically, it was strongly suggested that the rhabdomyosarcoma had originated from the mesenchymal element of the teratoma. A review of the literature revealed six definitive and two possible previous cases of testicular rhabdomyosarcoma ...

Lee J T - - 1991
Three cases of primary leiomyosarcoma arising from the greater omentum are described. On CT the tumors were multilobulated, flat, and pancake-like, with enhancing solid and multicystic densities. The masses in all cases were located in the most anterior part of peritoneal cavity. These CT findings are useful in the preoperative ...
Kadylak B - - 1991
7 cases of cystic changes within neonatal ovaries are reported. In the authors opinion the findings may be the result of hormonal hyperstimulation of newborn by maternal hormones and it's individual susceptibility. Morphologically the changes are similar to those seen in adult women with polycystic degeneration of the ovaries. For ...
San Marco L - - 1991
We describe a case of primary ovarian leiomyoma in a 16 year old patient; both ovaries were affected. Since at intervention normal tissue was found, the left ovary was preserved and a 30-months follow-up was carried out. Tumour markers (CA-125; alpha-fetoprotein; CEA and beta-HCG) were tested. Such a case has ...
