ABSTRACT Angiolipoma occurs preferentially in the extremities and trunk. We present a patient with involvement of the bronchus and describe successful localized resection of the lesion.

ABSTRACT: Spinal angiolipomas are extremely rare benign tumors composed of mature lipomatous and angiomatous elements. Most are symptomatic due to progressive spinal cord or root compression. This article describes the case of a 60-year-old woman who presented with a 6-month history of low back pain radiating to her right leg. The pain was multisegmental. The condition had worsened with time. Lumbar magnetic resonance imaging revealed a dorsal epidural mass at L5 and erosion of the lamina of the L5 vertebra. Laminectomy was performed, and an extradural tumor was totally excised. Neuropathologic examination identified it as a lumbar spinal angiolipoma. There was no evidence of recurrence in follow-up 12 months later. This rare clinical entity must be considered in the differential diagnosis for any spinal epidural lesion.European Spine Journal 07/2006; 15(6):1025-8. · 2.13 Impact Factor

ABSTRACT: Angiolipoma is a common benign tumor with a characteristic vascular component that usually occurs in subcutaneous tissue. Although lipomas are frequently encountered at colonoscopy as submucosal tumors, angiolipomas are rarely found in the gastrointestinal tract including the large intestine. Here we report a 77-year old Japanese man who underwent transanal resection of a tumor that was diagnosed tentatively as a leiomyoma. Histologically, the tumor consisted of mature fat cells and blood vessels. Immunohistochemically, the tumor cells were negative for c-kit and HMB-45, which are consistently expressed in tumors such as gastrointestinal stromal tumor and angiomyolipoma. The tumor was therefore diagnosed as an angiolipoma. This is thought to be the first case report of a surgically resected angiolipoma of the rectum.World Journal of Gastroenterology 02/2007; 13(3):467-9. · 2.55 Impact Factor
