Castleman disease is a rare benign lymphoid tumour of uncertain aetiology that usually appears as a solitary mediastinal mass. We report a rare case of Castleman disease in the right paracardiac pleural space, occurring in a young woman with non-specific chest discomfort. MRI showed a well-defined, oval mass that was slightly hyperintense on T(1) weighted images, inhomogeneously hyperintense on T(2) and enhanced T(1) weighted images. The patient underwent radical tumour resection and has remained well for 8 years.

    Hemangiopericytomas are malignant tumors arising from pericytic cells and account for less than 1% of all vascular neoplasms. We report a rare case of an extra- and intracranial dumbbell-shaped hemangiopericytoma originating from the soft tissue of the neck and penetrating the skull base with...

    Recently, solitary fibrous tumors occurring in spine-related lesions have been reported. However, the destruction of vertebral bodies by this type of tumor has not been reported. A 71-year-old female presented with pain from a mass on the right side of her neck. Plain radiographs of the cervical...

    Desmoid fibromatoses are a rare benign tumour but with a high rate of local recidivism. The goal of this article was to identify the prognostic factor and to evaluate the efficacy of the surgery. We report 36 patients who underwent surgery in our department between 1989 and 2008. Twenty-four had...
