Epithelioid Hemangioendothelioma with WWTR1-CAMTA1 Fusion in the Parotid Gland Presenting as Bell’s Palsy

Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma is a rare tumor of endothelial differentiation most commonly arising in soft tissue, liver, and lung, following a variable clinical course. Most cases are characterized by a t(1;3)(p36;q23-25) resulting in WWTR1-CAMTA1 fusion. Only five epithelioid hemangioendothelioma have been previously reported arising in the salivary glands. None have presented as Bell’s palsy. In the current case, a 37-year-old female presented with a longstanding complaint of pain and fullness in the right preauricular region and progressive episodes of Bell’s palsy and facial nerve weakness. Surgical resection showed a tumor comprised of atypical cells with occasional intracytoplasmic vacuoles in a fibromyxoid stroma. Immunohistochemical stains demonstrated the neoplastic cells expressed ERG, CD31, and CD34, confirming vascular differentiation. Fluorescence in situ hybridization revealed a t(1;3)(p36;q25), confirming a diagnosis of epithelioid hemangioendothelioma. At 12-month follow-up, the patient has no evidence of disease.

Ectopic Fetal Liver Tissue in the Placenta of a Twin Pregnancy: A Case Report and Review of Literature

Ectopic liver tissue represents a rare entity and is mostly attributed to events occurring during embryogenesis. Previous case reports documented the presence of fetal liver parenchyma within temporarily developed organs during pregnancy, such as the placenta or the umbilical cord. Moreover, the terminology of these benign findings varies from “ectopic liver” to “hepatocellular adenoma-like neoplasm” or “hepatocellular adenoma”. Ancillary tests performed on these lesions have shown positive immunohistochemical staining for hepatocellular origin marker HepPar-1. Only one recent case report comprising molecular analysis showed no beta-catenin gain-of-function mutation. We report a case of ectopic liver in one placenta of a twin pregnancy, with an updated review of literature.

A Huge Mesenteric Lymphangioma Presenting as a Small Bowel Volvulus in a Paediatric Patient: A Case Report

Lymphangioma is a benign tumor characterized by proliferation of thin-walled lymphatic spaces. Lymphangioma of the small-bowel mesentery is rare, with an incidence of 1 : 250,000, representing less than 1% of all lymphangiomas. The predilection of the tumor is in the head and neck (70%), axillary (20%), and internal organs (10%). They are usually asymptomatic but can cause acute abdominal symptoms due to complications such as volvulus, bleeding, or lymphangioma rupture that require emergent surgery. Here, we report a case of mesenteric lymphangioma (ML) of a small bowel in a paediatric patient who presented with pain abdomen on and off which increased in severity and later had features of subacute intestinal obstruction. He underwent explorative laparotomy, and the mass was excised completely along with the part of small intestine. Pathological analysis of the surgical specimen confirmed the diagnosis of ML of the small intestine. The postoperative recovery was uneventful, and the patient was discharged after ten days of hospital stay. Though benign in nature, ML may cause acute abdominal symptoms that require emergent surgery. Therefore, it has to be kept in differential diagnosis of the acute abdominal condition.

Multiple Consecutive Cervicovaginal Cytology Specimens Confirm Persistent Colonization by Cokeromyces recurvatus: Case Report and Literature Review

The published literature on cervicovaginal cytology includes fewer than ten reported cases of Cokeromyces recurvatus identified in Pap test samples. We report a unique case of an asymptomatic 27-year-old female with persistent gynecologic tract colonization by C. recurvatus in which distinctive fungal microorganisms were identified in three samples collected over three consecutive years.

Intradural Extramedullary Concurrent Schwannoma and Meningothelial Hyperplasia at C2-C3 Cervical Vertebrae: A Case Report and Review of Literature

Concomitant schwannomas and benign meningothelial proliferations, including meningothelial hyperplasia or meningioma, rarely occur at the same location outside the setting of neurofibromatosis. Herein, we present a rare case of concurrent schwannoma and benign meningothelial hyperplasia concomitantly occurring in the cervical spine of a 69-year-old male patient with no history of any genetic disorder.

A Rare Case of Embryonal Rhabdomyosarcoma of the Uterine Cervix

Embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) of the uterine cervix is an exceedingly rare mesenchymal tumor that accounts for less than 1% of all cervical cancers. This highly malignant tumor primarily affects adolescents and young adults. Due to the paucity of publications on this clinical entity, there are no clearly established treatment protocols. However, a multimodal approach to treatment that involves surgical intervention combined with adjuvant chemoradiotherapy appears to improve patient outcomes. Herein, we report a case of embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma of the uterine cervix in a 24-year-old female, who presented with an exophytic cervical mass and vaginal bleeding. Histopathology and immunohistochemistry confirmed embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma of the uterine cervix with extension into the lower uterine segment. This patient was successfully managed with a combination of neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy, a total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, and adjuvant chemoradiotherapy.
