1/78. leiomyoma of the esophagus associated with bronchial obstruction owing to inflammatory pseudotumor in a child.

    Although relatively common in adults, leiomyoma of the esophagus is a rare disorder in children. A single case report describes the coexistence of both esophageal and bronchial leiomyoma in a child. The authors describe the diagnostic and treatment challenges encountered in a 2-year-old boy with coexisting inflammatory pseudotumor and esophageal leiomyoma presenting as massive atelectasis.

2/78. Smooth muscle tumors of the esophagus: clinicopathological findings in six patients.

    Preoperatively, it is difficult to discriminate leiomyoma and leiomyosarcoma of the esophagus, which are rare smooth muscle tumors. The objective of this study was to evaluate the clinicopathological findings of this unusual lesion. A search of the surgery archives of the Toyama Prefectural Central Hospital of pathology revealed six cases of esophageal smooth muscle tumors. Clinicopathological findings were reviewed retrospectively. Only three patients (50%) presented with dysphagia, and the remaining three patients were asymptomatic. These patients underwent surgical excision. Histologically four of the six tumors were leiomyomas, and the other two tumors were leiomyosarcomas. Two tumors were in the upper to middle esophagus, and the remaining four were in the distal esophagus. On endoscopic examination, all tumors were noted to be polypoid. The two leiomyosarcomas measured over 5 cm and the four leiomyomas less than 4 cm. Neither ulceration nor necrosis proved to be of use in discriminating leiomyoma and leiomyosarcoma. The two patients with leiomyosarcoma died of liver metastasis 10 and 22 months after the treatment. patients with leiomyosarcoma presented with distant metastasis and/or recurrence, with hematogeneous metastasis being the predominant type of recurrence.

3/78. Oesophageal leiomyoma presenting as a mediastinal mass.

    A 28 year old male presented with complaints of retrosternal pain, discomfort and dysphagia of 4 years duration. barium swallow and oesophagoscopy were suggestive of extrinsic compression of thoracic oesophagus. CT scan of chest was suggestive of a large mediastinal lymph node mass. thoracotomy and open biopsy showed a benign mesenchymal tumor on frozen section. A transthoracic oesophagectomy with gastric pull up and cervical oesophago-gastric anastomosis was performed. The postoperative course was uneventful and the patient discharged on the tenth postoperative day.

4/78. leiomyoma of the oesophagus in an HIV-infected patient.

    Leiomyomas of the oesophagus are uncommon, and have not been reported in patients infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). A case of an oesophageal leiomyoma in an adult infected with HIV is presented.

5/78. Bilateral diffuse uveal melanocytic proliferation in a woman with uterine leiomyoma: case report.

    Bilateral diffuse uveal melanocytic proliferation (BDUMP) associated with systemic carcinoma is a rare paraneoplastic syndrome. It was reported to be associated with primary carcinomas of the lung, ovary, colon, gall bladder, esophagus, pancreas, uterus, and cervix. We report a case of BDUMP that occurred in a woman with cervical leiomyoma. The 79-year-old woman experienced bilateral progressive visual loss to hand motion within 2 weeks. Fundus examination showed bilateral exudative retinal detachment and multiple oval red patches. Echographic study showed diffuse thickening of the uveal tracts. fluorescein angiography showed multiple patches of window defect without late leakage, which was correlated with the oval red patches. After screening for tumor markers and meticulous examinations, an elevated serum level of CA-125 was noted. The only neoplasm found in this patient was a cervical leiomyoma, which has never been reported to be associated with BDUMP. One month after the onset of symptoms, accidental head injury due to poor vision led to right parietal intracerebral hemorrhage and left hemiplegia. Prompt diagnosis of this paraneoplastic syndrome is important to discover the underlying malignancy in patients with no history of cancer. For those cases without malignant neoplasm, attention should be directed to the disability caused by the severe visual loss, which led to accidental head injury and intracerebral hemorrhage in this case.

6/78. Thoracoscopic resection of an esophageal stromal tumor through the left pleural cavity.

    We describe the technique for endoscopic removal of a stromal tumor of the lower third of the esophagus through the left thoracoscopic approach. The tumor resembled a leiomyoma and was classified as a borderline, potentially malignant lesion after thoracoscopic removal. The technique and clinical implications in such cases are discussed on the basis of current knowledge.

7/78. leiomyoma of vesicovaginal septum causing urinary retention.

    A case of leiomyoma of the vesicovaginal septum causing acute urinary retention and an unusual radiographic filling defect in the flood of the bladder is presented. This is a rare lesion which can be the source of confusion. It has similar microscopic appearance to lesions which the patient had previously in the esophagus and stomach, left labia, and the uterus. Microscopically, all of the tumors were benign.

8/78. leiomyoma at the site of esophageal atresia repair.

    Esophageal leiomyomas are rare in the pediatric population. They frequently occur in association with other anomalies, such as Alport's syndrome, osteoarthropathy, and leiomyomas elsewhere in the body. The authors describe the case of a focal esophageal leiomyoma in a 12-month-old girl with a history of long-gap esophageal atresia. The patient initially underwent bouginage of the proximal pouch while awaiting definitive repair. After esophageal repair, the patient required multiple dilatations for anastomotic strictures. A segmental resection of the esophagus was performed because of recurrent strictures. A leiomyoma, arising from the site of the previous esophageal atresia repair, was noted on histologic evaluation. Esophageal leiomyomas have not been reported previously in a child with esophageal atresia. J Pediatr Surg 36:1832-1833.

9/78. Bronchial artery aneurysm disguised as a leiomyoma of the esophagus.

    Bronchial artery aneurysm (BAA) is a rare entity with potentially fatal hemorrhagic complications. It is usually diagnosed using a computed tomography scan or angiography in emergency situations (clinical picture of aortic dissection or massive hemoptysis). We report a case of bronchial artery aneurysm where dysphagia was the predominant symptom. Thoracic computed tomography and endoscopic ultrasound seemed to indicate leiomyoma of the esophagus. The final diagnosis revealed a bronchial artery aneurysm.

10/78. Two fatal complications after parallel tracheal-esophageal stenting.

    Two patients with malignant obstructions of both the trachea and esophagus underwent parallel stent placement with Gianturco-Rosch Z (GRZ) stents for palliation of symptoms. Fatal hemorrhage occurred in both patients 2 and 3 weeks after stent placement respectively. An autopsy performed on one of these patients demonstrated esophageal tissue necrosis and erosion with perforation of both the tracheal and esophageal walls at sites where the stent struts were in direct opposition, leading to bleeding from the esophageal venous plexus. GRZ stents have been successful in the treatment of both solitary tracheal and esophageal stenoses. However, parallel tracheal-esophageal stenting with GRZ stents places patients at high risk for complications due to the high radial force exerted by this particular stent and the minimal amount of intervening tissue between the two structures.
