1/45. Pubic osteomyelitis and granuloma after bone anchor placement.

    The use of bone anchors as a superior fixation for suburethral slings is becoming popular. We present a case report of pubic osteomyelitis and granuloma after bone anchor placement. A 71-year-old woman underwent placement of a vaginal wall sling using pubic bone anchors placed through a suprapubic incision. Recurrent swelling of the mons pubis required re-exploration and removal of the anchors from an infected pubic bone. When symptoms persisted over the following 10 months, the patient underwent repeat surgery and excision of a pubic bone granuloma. The use of bone anchors in suburethral sling surgery is associated with possible increase in patient morbidity, and no benefit to the patient has been shown.

2/45. Silicone granuloma on the entry points of acupuncture, venepuncture and surgical needles.

    We describe a case of epithelioid granuloma on the entry points of needles used for acupuncture, venepuncture and for taking skin biopsy. The acupuncture needles used at each session were silicone coated. silicon was detected in the vacuoles of macrophages and multiple nucleated giant cells by X-ray microanalysis. To our knowledge, this is the first case of silicone granuloma arising on the entry points of acupuncture, venepuncture and surgical needles.

3/45. Phosphoglyceride crystal deposition disease.

    An extremely rare phosphoglyceride deposition disease is reported. A healthy 62-year-old Japanese woman suffered from tumors that repeatedly appeared in injured soft tissues for more than 20 years. No immunologic disorders or abnormal laboratory data were found. histology showed foreign body granulomas consisting of macrophages surrounding yellowish-white crystals. The crystals were weakly positive by von Kossa's method, were dissolved in 30% acetic acid with gas, and were easily dissolved in 0.1 N NaOH or potassium hydroxide, losing their crystal structure. Using a scanning electron microscopy X-ray microanalyzer, phosphorus and calcium peaks were detected. Phosphoglycerides were detected by microscopic infrared spectrophotometry and microsampling mass spectrometry. The gold hydroxamic acid method for detecting phosphoglyceride showed strong positive staining in the crystals. Based on the above analyses, the deposited crystals were regarded as phosphoglyceride, which bound calcium as a counter ion. The crystals tended to be deposited at sites of injury, where macrophages had accumulated. The patient had received many injections of a medicine made from alcohol extract from bovine liver. We suspect that this medicine was related to the cause of the deposition as the deposition repeatedly appeared at the site of the injections.

4/45. Foreign-body granuloma occurring in the mandible subsequent to orthognathic surgery: a case report.

    We report the first case of foreign-body granuloma occurring in the mandible of a patient with a history of orthognathic surgery. A 20-year-old male patient had a hard swelling and pain in the left mandibular angle and the parotid area. Plain radiographs showed a radiolucent lesion extending from the buccal area under the left sigmoid notch of the mandible to the mandibular angle. Computed tomographs showed an expanded osteolytic mass in the same area, with destruction of most of the bone on the buccal side. A microscopic examination revealed filamentous foreign material associated with chronic inflammatory cell infiltration and an aggregation of multinucleated giant cells. Foreign-body granuloma in the mandible, although rare, should be included in the differential diagnosis in cases of postoperative masses.

5/45. Large cholesterol granuloma arising from the frontal sinus--case report.

    A 59-year-old male presented with a large cholesterol granuloma arising from the frontal sinus manifesting as a large, fluctuated, soft mass in his brow, compressing left eye. skull radiography showed dilation of the frontal sinus. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging revealed a cystic mass extending into the left orbit and anterior cranial fossa. Gross inspection at the frontal craniotomy showed mucinous, dark green fluid intermingled with shining material. The histological diagnosis was cholesterol granuloma with epithelial lining. Large cholesterol granuloma with facial deformity is always associated with bone and cosmetic problems. Wide opening of the frontal sinus followed by cyst wall removal and plastic repair of the skull is necessary.

6/45. Cotton-induced pseudotumor of the femur.

    Twenty-five years prior to presentation a 41-year-old man had a femoral fracture stabilized with a 4.5 mm AO/ASIF steel plate. The femur healed uneventfully and the patient was asymptomatic for the following 20 years. He then noticed a slow-growing swelling of the left thigh associated with a degree of weakness. Radiographs of the femur 25 years after fracture stabilization showed a massive expansive osteolytic process surrounded by a rim of bone. magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) confirmed the presence of a large tumor. Since malignancy could not be excluded the patient underwent incisional biopsy. The histologic findings were nonspecific. Because of persistent symptoms the lesion was marginally excised. Intraoperatively a folded cotton sponge was found adjacent to the femur. Histopathologic investigation confirmed a foreign body reaction probably related to the retained cotton sponge. Reactive, foreign-body-induced change may mimic bone and or soft tissue malignancies.

7/45. Intraosseous cholesterol granuloma of radius showing a lamellar structure on MR images: a case report.

    We report a case of an intraosseous cholesterol granuloma in the radius showing a lamellar structure on MRI. T1-weighted imaging revealed a central area of mildly increased signal intensity with a surrounding low-intensity layer. On T2-weighted images, the central lesion demonstrated low-intensity signals, and the surrounding area exhibited a lamellar structure with three layers of high, low, and high intensity from the inside. On histological examination, the central area was found to consist of cholesterine crystals embedded in erythrocytes, and in the surrounding lamellar structure collagenous tissue may have provided the low signals, with vessel- and giant cell-enriched structures present at both the inner and outer margins, presumably evoking the high-intensity signals. The present lesion may have been formed by chronic hemorrhage into a preexisting simple bone cyst.

8/45. Development of progressive pulmonary interstitial and intra-alveolar cholesterol granulomas (PICG) associated with therapy-resistant chronic systemic juvenile arthritis (CJA).

    A girl aged 5 years with therapy-resistant chronic systemic juvenile arthritis (CJA) developed progressive fibrosing lung disease. histology of an open lung biopsy revealed pulmonary interstitial and intra-alveolar cholesterol granulomas (PICG). Since treatment with steroids and immunosuppressive drugs did not prevent progression of lung fibrosis, an experimental treatment with a tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF alpha) antagonist etanercept was started. Although development of chronic changes in the lung parenchyma could not be prevented, this treatment brought considerable relief and markedly improved the child's physical capacity. By ruling out other causes for development of PICG, we concluded that the primary disease had caused the development of cholesterol granulomata by macrophage activation. We suggest, therefore, that a trial with etanercept in children with otherwise therapy-resistant CJA should be considered, especially if pulmonary complications have developed.

9/45. Textiloma of the thigh presenting as a sarcoma.

    Textiloma is defined as a tumor composed of cotton matrix surrounded by granulomatous reaction. It occurs following operations in which surgical sponges were inadvertently left behind. We describe a case of a 59-year-old man presenting with a pathologic fracture of the proximal left femur. The results of the biopsy, unlike diagnoses suggested by radiographs, CT scan and magnetic resonance imaging revealed a textiloma of 23 years of evolution. Because of major bone loss, resection of the involved bone was performed followed by ipsilateral fibular bone graft.

10/45. Bone wax foreign body granuloma in the mastoid.

    The sue of bone wax is commonly used to control bleeding during mastoid surgery. An unusual case of bone wax granuloma in the mastoid, with sigmoid sinus thrombosis, is reported. Although the use of bone wax in and around the mastoid is generally considered safe with few complications, caution should be exercised, particularly in infected fields and in patients known to have general immunohypersensitivity.
