The results of the MRI were the diagnosis of a benign lipoma. The patient chose not to undergo a surgical resection of the mass. A follow-up MRI performed 10 months later showed that the mass was unchanged in size and shape (Figure 6â € ¡). Cardiac lipomas are benign tumors of mature fat cells encapsulated. They are frequently sub-endocardial and account for about 11% of all cardiac neovasms1. The characteristics of the MR signal are quite specific and allow the cardiac MRI to be diagnosed in this case.
It is always important to tell your doctor if your lipoma changes in any way or if you have new nodules. Lipomas are quite common. About 1 in 100 people (1%) will develop a lipoma. We do not know what causes them, but some people develop them because of a disgraceful heroic inheritance. This condition is known as familial multiple lipomatosis and is not common. People with familial multiple lipomatosis will develop more than one lipoma. The exact number they can vary, but it can be several or more. Lipomas are usually just under the skin and are soft to the touch. They usually have the shape of a dome.
These are wide, benign nephropsies, located on the neck and upper back, the shoulders, the abdomen, the buttocks and the proximal extremities1,2. It is said that the vulva is so rare that only a few cases have been reported1. However, within six months, two adult cases have been detected in our center. We present these cases, discuss the clinical characteristics and current management options available for this vulvar pathology, and underline the need for histopathological evaluation of all excised lesions. where facilities permit Case 1: A 28-year-old para 2 was presented to our department with a painless, slow-growing six-month-old right vulval mass.
Cardiac Imaging Cardiac MRI showed a solitary, strongly marginal bilobed mass originating from the endocardial surface of the left ventricle (Figure 3). No other mass was present. The movement of the regional wall near the mass was normal. The signal intensity of the mass was consistent with the fat over several pulse sequences (Figures 3 and 4). First-pass perfusion imaging with MRI showed that the mass was poorly perfused compared to normal myocardium (Figure 5).
Your risk of developing this type of skin mass increases if you have a family history of lipomas. This condition is most common among adults aged 40 to 60 years. Certain conditions may also increase your risk of developing lipomas. These include: Doctors can often diagnose a lipoma by performing a physical exam. He is gentle and not painful. In addition, as it consists of fat tissue, the lipoma moves easily when touched. In some cases, a dermatologist may perform a lipoma biopsy. During this procedure, they will scratch a small part of the tissue and send it to a laboratory for testing.
