    Chondromyxoid fibroma (CMF) is a rare benign bone tumor of chondroid origin that occurs mostly in the metaphyses of long bones. CMF can occasionally mimic a chondrosarcoma on CT, and the literature on the 18F-FDG PET/CT imaging characteristics of CMF tumors is limited. In the presented case, a...

    Schwannoma is a benign tumor arising from nerve-sheath Schwann cells. When it affects the mouth, the lips are rarely involved. A MEDLINE search in the English literature from 1969 to 2009 revealed only 17 documented cases of schwannomas of the lip. This report describes the unusual case of a...
