Abstract: Lipomas are common soft tissue tumors usually located under the skin. Nevertheless, intramuscular lipomas of deltoid muscle are unusual tumors. We present a case of 74 years old woman with an intramuscular like clepsydra lipoma of deltoid muscle. The lesion was a palpable soft mass at the lateral side of the humerus. The patient had no previous history of trauma. The main symptom was pain only in abduction and extension. Imaging, pathological findings and surgical excision are discussed.

Abstract: Background: Tongue is an exceptional site of lipoma, a yet very common tumor. Aim: To improve awareness in tongue lipoma diagnosis and treatment approaches through a report of 2 cases and a review of literature. Case Report: A 57-year female patient presented with a large and long-standing mass of 10 years of duration of the base of the tongue, difficulties in feeding and speaking. Another patient of 33 years old presented with an asymptomatic swelling of the left side of the mobile tongue. The two patients had no remarkable medical history and their clinical examination was otherwise unremarkable. In all the two masses, macroscopic examination of the surgical specimen showed an elastic consistency and a yellowish cut surface. Microscopically, matures adipocytes in an abundant fibrous connective tissue were noted in one of the specimen and fibrolipoma was diagnosed. In the other one, matures adipocytes were noted and its patient was diagnosed as having lipoma. Discussion: Tongue lipoma diagnosis, clinically challenging, is easily suspected at macroscopic examination of surgical specimen of a tongue mass. Treatment should favor as possible as a non-mutilating approach given the benign character and the classical low propensity for recurrence of the tumor.
An unusual variation of deltoid muscle
Kamburoglu Haldun,Boran Omer,Sargon Mustafa,Kecik Abdullah
International Journal of Shoulder Surgery , 2008,
Abstract: An unusual anatomic variation of the deltoid muscle was found in a 45-year-old female cadaver during dissection of the right upper extremity. The posterior fibers of the right deltoid muscle were enclosed in a distinct fascial sheet and the deltoid muscle was seen to arise from the middle 1/3 of the medial border of the scapula. There was no accompanying vascular or neural anomaly of the deltoid muscle. To the best of our knowledge, unilateral posterior separation of the deltoid muscle with a distinct fascia has not been described previously. While dissecting deltoid, posterior deltoid, or scapular flaps, the surgeon needs to look out for this variation because it may cause confusion.
Gastric lipoma  [PDF]

Abstract: Lipomas of the gastrointestinal tract are rare; gastric lipomas account for only 5% of all gastrointestinal lipomas. Although they are usually asymptomatic and detected incidentally, severe symptoms can occur with larger lesions, such as bleeding, abdominal pain or obstruction. Currently, accurate diagnosis of gastric lipoma can be reached with a combination of endoscopic and imaging diagnostic techniques, which constitutes a very useful precondition in choosing an appropriate management. We report a new case of a gastric lipoma diagnosed via abdominal CT scan and endoscopic ultrasound in a 63-year-old woman. Through this observation the authors discuss the contribution of morphological examinations in this disease whose diagnosis was made in the past on surgical specimen.
Deltoid contracture: A study of nineteen cases

Indian Journal of Orthopaedics , 2008,
Abstract: Objective: Deltoid contracture is not uncommon in India. Contractures of deltoid often do not have definite etiology. We have critically analyzed the condition as regards the etiopathogenesis and its surgical results. Materials and Methods: Nineteen patients with deltoid contracture operated between June 1990 and September 2001 were enrolled for a unicentric retrospective study. The surgery was indicated in patients with abduction deformity of more than 30° at the shoulder. The etiology of deltoid contracture was idiopathic ( n = 13) intramuscular injection in deltoid muscle ( n = 5) and blunt trauma ( n = 1). All were operated by distal release (incision near the insertion of the deltoid muscle). The average follow-up was of 9.5 years (range 6-17 years). They were evaluated based on parameters like pain, persistence of deformity, range of shoulder movements and strength of deltoid. Results: All patients recovered painless full range of shoulder motion except one. The correction of deformity was achieved in all patients and there was no loss of strength of deltoid compared to the opposite side. Histology of excised tissue showed features of chronic inflammation. The complications observed were hypertrophic scar ( n = 1), painful terminal restriction of shoulder movements ( n = 1) and prominent vertebral border of scapula ( n = 1). Conclusion: Deltoid contracture has features of chronic inflammation, and the intramuscular deltoid injection is the most incriminating factor in its etiopathogenesis. The condition can be effectively managed surgically by distal release of the deltoid muscle combined with excision of the muscular fibrotic contracture band.
Spindle Cell Lipoma of the Oral Cavity: A Clinico-Pathologic Analysis of 35 Reported Cases  [PDF]

Spindle-cell lipoma (SCL) is a variant of lipoma, usually presenting in the neck or trunk. SCL of the oral cavity is rare. Some cases of oral SCL have been reported; however, the clinico-pathologic characteristics of oral SCL are still unknown. Here we report on 2 cases and review 33 cases of oral SCL published in the literature. The patients were 23 men and 12 women, with a mean age of 55 years (range 23 - 88 years); there were no children. Tumor sites included: tongue (n = 13), cheek/buccal mucosa (n = 11), floor of mouth (n = 5), lip (n = 2), hard palate (n = 2), alveolar ridge (n = 1), and maxilla (n = 1). The mean tumor size was 20.87 mm (range 3 - 50 mm), smaller than extra-oral lesions. Thirty-three patients (94%) presented with a single lesion that was circumscribed and composed of mature adipocytes admixed with bland spindle cells. The spindle cells were strongly immunoreactive for CD34, whereas the adipocytes were negative. The main differential diagnosis is atypical lipoma/well-differentiated liposarcoma. All lesions underwent local excision and recurrences are

Abstract: Hemangiomas and hepatic metastases are the leading reasons of echogenic masses on ultrasound (US) evaluation of the liver. Lipomas of the liver are extremely rare and have been sporadically reported in the literature during the last century. The present report describes a patient with hepatic lipoma together with liver metastases from gastric adenocarcinoma. A 54 years old woman was refered to our department because of abdominal pain. Patient has been operated for gastric adenocarcinoma 3 months ago she was evaluated with US, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).The abdominal US revealed a 12 × 10 mm echogenic mass with smooth borders in 7th segment of the liver. CT scan showed a hypodense lesion in the same hepatic segment with fat dencity and no contrast involvement. MRI demonstrated the same lesion on T1 and T2 weighted images as hyperintence mass. The final radiographic diagnosis was he-patic lipoma. However, there was metastas in the liver of patient. Patient died 4 months later due to metas-tatic gastric adenocarcinoma. Hepatic lipoma should be kept in mind in echogenic masses on US evaluation of the liver.

Open Journal of Pathology (OJPathology) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojpathology.2012.22005
Abstract: Lipomas are benign slow-growing neoplasms composed of mature fat cells. Their occurrence in the oral cavity is rare representing only 1% - 4% of all benign neoplasms of this location. Tonsillar lipomas are extremely rare. Only 15 cases have been reported in the world literature so far. We present two new cases of lipoma affecting the palatine tonsils with a review of the related literature.

Lipoma is a common benign tumor affecting the soft tissues arising in every location where fat is normally present. About 15% of lipomas occur in head and neck region. The lipoma of parotid gland is a rare entity, comprising 0.6% - 4.4% of all parotid tumors. The etiology remains unclear. The case described a lipoma of the superficial lobe of the parotid gland in a 46-year-old male.
