Case Study
Lipomas are benign mesenchymal neoplasms, composed of adipose tissues. Though relatively rare in the oral cavity, they constitute about 1% to 4% of soft tissue tumors of the oral cavity. The common sites of occurrence include buccal mucosa and tongue, with rare involvement of palate and gingiva. Hereby, we report a case of oral lipoma in a 19-year-old female patient. Surgical excision of the mass was done with no recurrence after 1 year follow up.

    Alveolar soft-part sarcoma (ASPS) is a rare and often fatal tumor. Overall survival rates have been reported to be 62% after 5 years, 42% after 10 years, and 18% after 20 years. ASPS accounts for 5% of all pediatric soft-tissue sarcomas other than rhabdomyosarcomas. In children, ASPS rarely...

    Objective: Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is a rare dermal tumor recurring after inadequate primary treatment. This tumour mostly located in the trunk region and DFSP of the scalp is very rare but well-known clinical entity. The preferred treatment of DFSP is wide resection, namely with...

    Cardiac fibromas are the 2nd most common benign cardiac tumor occurring in children and bear a striking morphologic resemblance to soft tissue or desmoid fibromatosis. Since activating mutations in beta-catenin are common in desmoid fibromatosis as well as other spindle cell proliferations, the...

    Alveolar soft part sarcoma (ASPS), a rare soft tissue sarcoma in children and adolescents, carries a poor prognosis. ASPS is an aggressive tumor of controversial histogenesis that, unlike other soft tissue sarcomas, tends to metastasize to the brain. A 9-year-old boy presented to our outpatient...

    Angiomyofibroblastoma (AMF) is a rare, benign, soft-tissue tumor, which predominantly occurs in the vulvovaginal region of middle-aged women. It is clinically important to distinguish an AMF from other stromal cell lesions. Here, we report the case of a 32-year-old woman with a rare, giant...

    Lipomas are the most common subcutaneous soft-tissue tumors of mesenchymal originand have an overall recurrence rate of 5%. The axillary region is an unusually reported localization for lipomas. We report a huge recurrent cervico-axillary lipoma in a 2-years-old boy, which, to our knowledge and...

    Alveolar soft-part sarcoma is a highly vascular soft-tissue tumor that is uniformly malignant. It comprises less than 1 per cent of all soft-tissue sarcomas. Patients with alveolar soft-part sarcoma most frequently are aged 15 to 35 years, and the soft tissues of the lower extremities typically...
