Glomus tumours are the most common primary neoplasms of the middle ear, typically benign and slowly progressive. Pulsatile tinnitus and ipsilateral hearing loss are the most common symptoms at presentation by far; otalgia, aural fullness and otorrhoea being less frequent. A case of primary glomus tympanicum presenting with recurrent epistaxis, ...

A series of 31 consecutive parotidectomies was evaluated. FNAC could differentiate tumour from non tumour in 72.8% of cases. For actual histology, FNAC was correct in 66.6%. Frozen section was correct in differentiating between benign, malignant and inflammatory conditions in all cases. Eighty-eight percent of frozen section histology concurred with ...

Secretory meningiomas are a rare meningioma subtype. Among meningiomas, the frequency of secretory meningiomas is 1.6%. Unlike other meningioma types, most of the patients were female (ratio 3:1). No recurrence was reported during the 24-180 months follow-up period of our secretory meningiomas in which, a low level of 0.3% Ki-67 ...

This report describes an unusual case of a mucoepidermoid carcinoma developing in a patient with congenital left upper lobe agenesis. Mucoepidermoid tumours most often develop in major bronchi and present as lobar collapse, post-obstructive pneumonia or as a mass lesion on chest radiography. On CT, the tumour is smooth, well ...

Giant tumours of the breast cause massive enlargement of the breast resulting in asymmetry. Simple excision of the tumour fails to restore symmetry, and in some cases leaves the patient with a secondary deformity. We present two cases of giant fibroadenoma in adolescent females. Both patients underwent a one-stage excision ...

Coagulopathies associated with malignancies are not extremely rare, but are uncommonly associated with Wilms' tumour (WT). A 6-month-old female with a WT and an abnormal coagulation profile is reported. Due to the Coagulopathy and elevated D-dimers in the blood, surgery was deferred and chemotherapy was given, after which the coagulation ...

Adrenal cortical phaeochromocytomas (pseudo-phaeochromocytomas) are a very rare entity and a diagnostic challenge. Of the few cases previously reported, most have incomplete data or lack clinical and biochemical follow-up documenting the cure of the excess secretion of catecholamines after resection of the tumour. We report herein a 62-year-old patient with ...

An extremely unusual case demonstrating rare behaviour of an ependymoma is presented. The tumour spread in an en-plaque fashion and involved the ependymal lining of the entire ventricular system. The patient, a 56-year-old male, presented with symptoms of raised intracranial pressure and truncal ataxia. The management issues are analyzed on ...

Haemangiopericytoma (HPC) is a rare tumour of the central nervous system. Previously, HPCs were thought to originate from meninges and ventricular walls. Currently, they are accepted as distinctive mesenchymal neoplasms unrelated to meningiomas. Imaging appearances, clinical progression and haemorrhage into a cystic tumour is documented in an 18-year-old man where ...

Two rare cases of benign submucosal pharyngo-oesophageal mesenchymoma are presented in this paper. One patient was treated by tumour removal via a combined thoracic and laterocervical approach and the other by resection through a laterocervical approach. The paper discusses the pathology and diagnosis of benign mesenchymomas. The authors suggest that ...

The literature on congenital and hereditary tumours in pigs was reviewed. One hitherto unreported own case was added. Sporadic cases of congenital tumours included several types found in newborn piglets. Embryonic tumours (nephroblastoma, rhabdomyosarcoma) occurred either in newborn or in juvenile animals. Cardiac rhabdomyomas were provisionally classified as hamartomas. The ...

Intussusception of the intestine is rare in adults. We report a case of a 45-year-old male who presented with long-standing pyrexia of unknown origin, abdominal pain, gastrointestinal bleeding and constitutional symptoms. Colonoscopic examination revealed a large invaginated mass suggestive of colonic intussusception due to gastrointestinal stromal tumour of the colon. ...

The majority of intracranial chondromas arise from cartilage rests in the synchondrosis at the base of the skull. Chondromas are most commonly found in the sellar and parasellar regions, usually located extradurally. In rare instances, these tumours originate from the dura mater of the convexity. We report a rare case ...

Insulinoma is a rare neuroendocrine tumour infrequently reported in children. Operative excision is the treatment of choice, but requires a disproportionately large incision to remove a small and benign tumour located deep in the retroperitoneum. Laparoscopic resection of benign tumours of the pancreas has been increasingly reported in adults and ...

The authors present 20 cases of likely post-traumatic intracranial meningiomas selected according to the conditions specified in the relevant literature. The relationship between head injury and subsequent development of meningioma remains a controversial and fascinating subject. The etiopathogenetic mechanisms and clinical features of our patients and those of the literature ...

To the best of our knowledge, a malignant ectomesenchymoma of the nose has not yet been reported. This rare tumour is composed of a mesenchymal element--usually a rhabdomyosarcoma--and a neuroectodermal element, often a neuroblastoma or a malignant schwannoma. Most malignant ectomesenchymomas have been found in children (mainly boys), but 5 ...

AIMS: Tissue microarrays offer an efficient way of examining a large number of tumour cases on a single glass slide. A major concern, however, is tumour heterogeneity. Also, the use of tissue microarrays in biopsy material is unexplored. The purpose of the present study was to assess the possibility and ...

We report a case of a fetal haemangioblastoma located in the cerebellopontine angle. On prenatal ultrasonographic examination a hyperechogenic and heterogeneous mass with a major vascularization on colour Doppler imaging was observed. It increased progressively and laminated the cerebellum. A neoplastic tumour was suspected but its extent into the cerebral ...

BACKGROUND: 81 patients with tongue carcinomas were studied to determine: 1). the proportion of carcinomas with altered p16 expression; 2). whether loss of p16 is an early carcinogenic event; 3). whether p16 expression alterations influence the prognosis. METHODS: 50/81 cases could be analysed by immunohistochemistry. RESULTS: Tumours were p16- in ...

BACKGROUND: Cerebellar liponeurocytoma has only recently been recognized as a distinct clinicopathological entity. Although the few cases described in literature support the relatively benign nature of this lesion, optimum treatment strategy and long term behaviour still have to be defined.

Nasal gliomas are uncommon tumours of neurogenic origin that occur sporadically. They are diagnosed with MRI and a preoperative biopsy, and surgery is the treatment of choice. Most of the gliomas emerge from the nasal cavity, but only a few cases of nasopharyngeal gliomas have been reported. We present one ...

Adrenal myelolipoma is an unusual, benign and hormonally inactive tumour composed of mature adipose and haematopoietic tissue. In the past, these tumours were accidentally discovered at autopsy. Today, they are found much more frequently and incidentally, mainly because of the widespread use of ultrasonography, computed tomography and magnetic reasonance imaging. ...

Kaposiform haemangioendothelioma (KHE) is a rare vascular tumour, predominantly of infancy and early childhood, that has a close association with Kasabach-Merritt syndrome. Despite benign histology, this tumour frequently behaves aggressively, causing significant morbidity and mortality as a result of the compression and invasion of surrounding structures as well as from ...

Meningioangiomatosis is a unique, rare hamartomatous lesion. Meningiomas arising in the background of meningioangiomatosis are rare conditions which pathologically and radiologically mimic invasive meningiomas, but have a benign clinical course in children and young adults. In this study, five such cases are reported. To our knowledge, this is the largest ...
