1/168. mitral valve repair for anterior leaflet papillary fibroelastoma: two case descriptions and a literature review.

    Cardiac papillary fibroelastomas are rare cardiac tumors and have been considered a 'benign' incidental finding that may have significant clinical manifestations. In this paper we report two cases of mitral valve fibroelastoma: one was discovered by chance with transthoracic echocardiography in a young healthy man, the other was an intraoperative incidental finding in a middle aged man with a recent history of acute myocardial infarction. The mitral valve was repaired in both cases after excising the tumor. The patients did well and remain asymptomatic. A literature review was compiled which comprises previous case reports of 34 patients with mitral valve papillary fibroelastomas. Most were asymptomatic, but when symptoms occurred, they could be disabling, such as stroke, cardiac heart failure, myocardial infarction, and sudden death. Papillary fibroelastoma is amenable to simple surgical excision or in addition to mitral valve repair or replacement. recurrence has not been reported.

2/168. Scrape cytology of elastofibroma. Report of a case with diagnostic cytologic features.

    BACKGROUND: Elastofibroma is a benign, soft tissue tumor that occurs most frequently in the subscapular area in elderly people. To the best of our knowledge, in only two cases has the cytology been reported. The aim of this report is to describe the characteristic cytologic findings of elastofibroma and to discuss the usefulness of elastin stain in scrape smears. CASE: A 72-year-old female had bilateral masses in the lower subscapular area. Scrape smears from a cut surface of the resected masses revealed abundant, "wormlike" or "braidlike" material with central cores with Papanicolaou stain in an intraoperative consultation. Various-sized, petaloid or crystalloid globules were also present. Those elastic fibers were strongly positive for elastin stain in cytologic preparations. CONCLUSION: Elastofibroma can be diagnosed cytologically, and elastin-stained, scrape cytologic preparation is especially useful in such a case.

3/168. Cortical benign fibromatous tumor (fibroma) of the kidney.

    Benign fibromatous tumor (BFT), also named 'fibroma', is a distinctive clinico-pathologic entity occurring in epididymis, spermatic cord, paratesticular structures, testis, renal peripelvis and rarely in renal parenchyma. We report the first case of a BFT (fibroma) located in the cortex of the kidney, and a critical review on the topic is provided. Tumor was found incidentally at autopsy as a small cortical nodule. With the increasing use of radiological imaging of the abdomen, it is likely that an increased number of incidental and asymptomatic benign renal tumors will be diagnosed. We underline that BFT (fibroma) should be considered in the preoperative differential diagnosis of renal cortical nodules.

4/168. Left ventricular fibroma masquerading as postinfarction myocardial rupture.

    A large left ventricular fibroma was encountered perioperatively for what was presumed to be a sealed ventricular rupture after thrombolytic therapy for an acute myocardial infarction. We review the pertinent literature concerning the diagnosis of ventricular rupture and this rare benign tumor of the heart.

5/168. Benign ovarian fibroma associated with free peritoneal fluid and elevated serum CA 125 levels.

    This paper reports the clinical case of a patient with ovarian neoplasia, ascites effusion, and elevated serum CA 125 levels (411 U/ml). This condition simulated a malignant pathology on the grounds of preoperative diagnostic examinations. Surgical investigation diagnosed an ovarian fibroma and ascites. ascites was resolved rapidly and the serum CA 125 levels decreased after surgical neoplasia removal. An ovarian neoplasia associated with ascites effusion and elevated serum CA 125 levels (also in the presence of suspect ecographic and tomographic features) do not necessarily imply a malignant neoplasia.

6/168. Desmoplastic fibroma of the mandible: case report.

    This report describes the case of a 2-year-old girl with desmoplastic fibroma of the mandible, with swelling in the region of the mandibular angle which had been wrongly diagnosed several times. A biopsy was interpreted as showing a low-grade fibrosarcoma. The patient then received treatment with cytotoxic drugs, and later a mandibular hemi-resection was performed. The postoperative diagnosis was Jaffe's desmoplastic fibroma (non-osteogenic). The age of the patient, the rapid development of the tumour and the accompanying pain suggested a sarcoma, and the first pathological examination seemed to provide confirmation. The post-operative course was very favorable, and the patient is considered to clinically cured, after one year.

7/168. An intrasylvian "fibroma" in a child with cystic fibrosis: case report.

    OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE: Intracranial fibrous tumors are uncommon during childhood. An unusual case of benign intrasylvian "fibroma" that has remained clinically and radiographically stable more than 3 years after a subtotal resection is described. CLINICAL PRESENTATION: A 9-year-old girl with cystic fibrosis presented with new-onset focal seizures referable to a large calcified left sylvian fissure mass. INTERVENTION: An open biopsy with subtotal resection of the lesion revealed a benign process characterized by exuberant fibrocollagenous tissue intermeshed with chronic inflammatory cells and foreign body giant cells, encompassing islands of gliotic brain tissue. Immunohistochemical analysis showed staining for epithelial membrane antigen and reticulin within some of the spindle cells, although the majority were nonreactive. The majority of tumor cells exhibited staining for laminin; CD34 staining was absent. Ultrastructural studies were also suggestive of a fibroblastic rather than a meningothelial origin of the lesion, with elongated cells separated by abundant extracellular collagen. Although dense adherence of the mass to the pial surface and the middle cerebral artery vessels precluded a complete resection, the patient remains seizure-free without anticonvulsant therapy more than 3 years postoperatively with no evidence of growth of the lesion. CONCLUSION: The lesion in this patient bears morphological similarity to a rare group of tumors referred to as "intracerebral fibromas," although a variety of other rare mesenchymal neoplasms were also considered within the differential diagnosis. However, the absence of any definite neoplastic features, the finding of chronic inflammatory changes, and the lack of growth of the residual tumor during an extended follow-up interval indicate that the mass may represent either an extremely indolent neoplasm or a nonneoplastic process. The differential diagnosis of intracranial fibrous tumors is contrasted with that of the reported case.

8/168. Aggressive ossifying fibroma of the maxilla: review of the literature and report of case.

    A case of a large aggressive ossifying fibroma of the maxilla has been presented. review of the literature shows the literature shows the difficulty in establishing a definitive diagnosis through any single diagnostic modality. Much of this is due to the confusion surrounding classification of the tumor. Adjunctive radiographic and nuclear medicine diagnostic aids were utilized, as were clinical, laboratory, and histopathologic studies, in resolving the diagnostic questions posed by this large and aggressive tumor. Surgical intervention through conservative enucleation produced few operative or postoperative difficulties and minimal residual deformity. Differentiation of ossifying fibroma from other benigh and malignant neoplasms as well as fibrous dysplasia is important in the correct management of this lesion.

9/168. Benign ureteral tumors. Four case reports and a review of the literature.

    The diagnosis of benign ureteral polyps should be considered especially in patients younger than 40 years with filling defects of the proximal ureter on the intravenous pyelogram (IVP). The excellent results of conservative organ-saving surgery (open resection, ureteroscopic resection, laser coagulation) require precise diagnostic management preoperatively in these patients.

10/168. Inflammatory fibroid polyp of the duodenum.

    Duodenal inflammatory fibroid polyps (IFP) are extemely rare lesions indistinguishable from submucosal tumors by endoscopic inspection alone. Like gastric inflammatory fibroid polyps, they can be managed by endoscopic polypectomy or mucosectomy. However, preoperative diagnosis of this benign lesion is difficult. Here we present a case of duodenal IFP causing gastrointestinal bleeding that was evaluated by endoscopic ultrasound before surgical removal. On endosonography, the duodenal IFP appeared as a coarsely heterogeneous isoechoic and hypoechoic mass circumscribed by a distinct margin and arising from the third layer of the duodenal wall. The endosonographic appearance of this lesion was in marked contrast to that previously reported for gastric IFPs, which have tended to appear as hypoechoic homogeneous lesions with indistinct margins. Endosonographic evaluation of suspected IFPs before endoscopic or surgical treatment is useful. However, the endosonographic appearances of duodenal and gastric IFPs may be significantly different, possibly because of differences in the makeup of the duodenal and gastric walls.
