1/794. Giant fibrovascular polyp of the esophagus: CT and MR findings.

    We present a case of giant fibrovascular polyp of the esophagus with predominant fat contents. Both computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings of this rare tumor are reported. The employment of CT and MRI in the presurgical evaluation of fibrovascular esophageal polyp is suggested. ( info)

2/794. Failure of the laryngeal mask to secure the airway in a patient with Hunter's syndrome (mucopolysaccharidosis type II).

    We present a case-study of a boy with Hunter's syndrome (mucopolysaccharidosis type II) and stridor in which a laryngeal mask airway (LMA) failed to secure airway control. A rigid bronchoscopy was performed and a polypoid formation discovered. We believe that the use of the LMA could explain the laryngeal obstruction in this child. ( info)

3/794. An ureteric polyp removed by ureteroscopy.

    A case of benign ureteric polyp resected in one piece endoscopically is reported. The authors emphasize the role of ureteroscopy in the differential diagnosis of ureteric tumours. Unnecessary nephroureterectomies or open explorations can be avoided by the use of this procedure. ( info)

4/794. Late recurrence of a uterine clear cell adenocarcinoma confined to an endometrial polyp: case report.

    A patient with an endometrial clear cell adenocarcinoma confined to a polyp developed recurrent disease in the abdomen and pelvis four years following hysterectomy. Treatment issues related to this uncommon clinical situation are discussed. ( info)

5/794. Giant fibrovascular polyp of the esophagus.

    Giant fibrovascular polyps (FVP) are the most common intraluminal tumors of the esophagus. The case of a second, nonrecurrent FVP is presented. A thorough review of the literature was conducted to provide an informative discussion on this benign but potentially life-threatening neoplasm. ( info)

6/794. Hysteroscopic cervical polypectomy with a polyp snare.

    The cervical canal is difficult to visualize during hysteroscopy, making hysteroscopic maneuvers difficult. In our patient, after traditional surgical approaches failed, we used a polyp snare and closed the outflow channel of the hysteroscope, which allowed rapid removal of a cervical polyp in its entirety. This is an effective technique for excising intracervical lesions. (J Am Assoc Gynecol Laparosc 6(2):201-203, 1999) ( info)

7/794. Multiple gastric polyps in familial amyloid polyneuropathy.

    Amyloid masses of the gastrointestinal tract are very rare. A previously undescribed finding of multiple gastric polyps due to systemic amyloidosis is outlined in a patient with familial amyloid polyneuropathy. The relevant literature pertaining to gastric amyloidosis and mucosal masses is reviewed. amyloidosis should be included in the differential diagnosis of target lesions in the stomach. ( info)

8/794. diagnosis and physiopathology of laryngeal deposits in autoimmune disease.

    We report the clinical features and pathology of a previously unreported form of vocal fold disease seen in 4 patients, 3 of whom were diagnosed as autoimmune disease. The characteristic features of these lesions were found as bilateral transverse lesions in the mid portion of the vocal folds. The patients had dysphonia and diplophonia. Stroboscopic examinations showed 180-degree phase shifts between the anterior and posterior portion of the vocal folds. Case 1 had systemic lupus erythematosus, case 2 had Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and case 3 had progressive systemic sclerosis. Prior to the onset of hoarseness, autoimmune antibody titers were increased. These cases need differential diagnosis from vocal fold nodules and cysts. Two cases were recurrent after endoscopic surgery, 1 recurring 3 times. Glucocorticoid was effective in preventing the recurrence in the early phase. recurrence may have occurred because the surgical strategy was the same as that used for vocal fold nodules or cysts.

9/794. tamoxifen-associated polyps (basalomas) arising in multiple endometriotic foci: A case report and review of the literature.

    We present a case of a 62-year-old G0P0 Caucasian woman who developed endometrial adenocarcinoma, FIGO grade 2, endometrioid type, after receiving tamoxifen for 2 years following a diagnosis of invasive carcinoma and ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast. An incidental finding in the hysterectomy specimen was numerous endometriotic foci involving the submucosa, subserosa, and serosa of the cervix; lower uterine segment serosa; and bilateral ovaries. Polypoid structures, similar to the endometrial polyps occurring in tamoxifen-treated patients, were observed to arise from endometriotic foci in the serosa of the cervix and bilateral ovaries. We have found only one similar report in the literature. Since these structures do not fit the definition of "polyp," we suggest "basaloma" as an alternative. We also review all cases of tamoxifen-associated endometriosis reported in the world literature and cases of polypoid endometriosis occurring in non-tamoxifen-treated patients. Of 12 reported cases of tamoxifen-associated endometriosis, 4 occurred in premenopausal women, 1 in a perimenopausal women, and 7 in postmenopausal women, of whom none had a known history of endometriosis. The endometriotic foci gave rise to a spectrum of lesions which included epithelial metaplasias, simple and complex hyperplasias, polypoid lesions, and 2 cases of endometrioid carcinomas. ( info)

10/794. Mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma of the duodenum forming multiple polypoid lesions: report of a case.

    We report herein the case of a patient found to have mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma of the duodenum forming multiple polypoid lesions. Endoscopic examination revealed multiple small nodules with a yellow-white, rough surface in the duodenal bulb. Histopathological and immunological findings subsequently suggested low-grade B-cell MALT lymphoma. Cytologically, MALT lymphoma is similar to multiple lymphomatous polyposis (MLP); however, this case, which involved multiple polypoid lesions, was confirmed not to be MLP. ( info)
