bilaterally or unilaterally. This is a rare condition and results when the mammary ridges fail to develop or completely disappear. Athelia or amastia is sometimes associated with (ie, absent chest wall muscles, absence of ribs 2-5, deformities of the hands or vertebrae). Amastia in girls can be treated with augmentation mammoplasty. An extra breast (ie, polymastia) or extra nipple (ie, polythelia) occurs in approximately 1% of the population. It may be an inheritable condition. [ ] Supernumerary nipples (...) -guided needle aspiration is significally less than that for open incision and drainage; thus, it may be the preferred treatment.

125. Asthma (Overview)

in the United States. The pathophysiology of asthma is complex and involves airway inflammation, intermittent airflow obstruction, and bronchial hyperresponsiveness. The mechanism of inflammation in asthma may be acute, subacute, or chronic, and the presence of airway edema and mucus secretion also contributes to airflow obstruction and bronchial reactivity. Varying degrees of mononuclear cell and eosinophil infiltration, mucus hypersecretion, desquamation of the epithelium, smooth muscle hyperplasia (...) , and airway remodeling are present. [ , ] Airway hyperresponsiveness or bronchial hyperreactivity in asthma is an exaggerated response to numerous exogenous and endogenous stimuli. The mechanisms involved include direct stimulation of airway smooth muscle and indirect stimulation by pharmacologically active substances from mediator-secreting cells such as mast cells or nonmyelinated sensory neurons. The degree of airway hyperresponsiveness generally correlates with the clinical severity of asthma

131. A case of diffuse pilar leiomyoma or acquired smooth muscle hamartoma? (Abstract)

A case of diffuse pilar leiomyoma or acquired smooth muscle hamartoma? A 62-year-old woman presented with a skin-coloured indurated asymptomatic plaque, 150 mm in diameter on the knee. Histological analysis of a skin biopsy taken from the lesion showed haphazardly arranged bundles of smooth muscle in the deep dermis, characteristic of a pilar leiomyoma. Cutaneous pilar leiomyomas are rare, benign smooth muscle tumours arising from the arrector pili muscle, which usually appear as red or brown (...) papules < 15 mm in diameter. This case is unusual in its clinical appearance and size, being at least 10 times larger than the largest previously documented cutaneous pilar leiomyoma. Similar lesions have also been previously reported under the term 'acquired smooth muscle hamartoma' (ASMH). These cases are also rare and have no known consistent clinical features. Histologically it is difficult to differentiate between ASMH and leiomyomas, and some authors would consider this case as a new report

134. Survivin Expression in Tuberous Sclerosis Complex Cells Full Text available with Trip Pro

Survivin Expression in Tuberous Sclerosis Complex Cells Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) is a tumor suppressor gene disorder with mutations of TSC1/TSC2 genes. This leads to the development of hamartomas that most frequently affect central nervous system, kidney, and skin. Angiomyolipomas are abdominal masses made up of muscle vessels and adipose tissues that grow mostly in proximity to kidneys and liver. Bleeding and kidney failure are the major justification for surgery. This study shows (...) that angiomyolipoma-derived human smooth muscle TSC2-/- cells express the apoptosis inhibitor protein survivin when exposed to IGF-1. Survivin expression is also triggered whenever culture conditions perturb normal TSC2-/- cell function, such as the omission of EGF from the growth medium, the supplementation of anti-EGFR, blockade of PI3K and ERK, or inhibition of mTOR. Interestingly, single or simultaneous inhibition of PI3K by LY294002 and ERK by PD98059 does not prevent IGF-1-mediated survivin expression

Adenomyoma of the stomach mimicking infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis. We report a case of gastric adenomyoma in a 1-month-old girl. This patient presented with gastric outlet obstruction simulating infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis. Histologic examination of the excised specimen showed irregularly arranged glands and interlacing smooth muscle bundles surrounding the glandular elements. We suggest that this lesion is not just heterotopia, but hamartoma composed of abnormal mixture (...) of endoderm-derived epithelial component and mesoderm-derived smooth muscle.

This lesion was diagnosed as an adenomyomatous polyp. No history of tamoxifen use was present in this case. The diagnosis of perivascular epithelioid cell tumor was ruled out.We found 1 other report of a similar lesion, which may have represented a hamartoma. (...) Adenomyomatous polyp of the endometrium: a case report. Adenomyomatous polyps of the endometrium are rare, pedunculated lesions that contain smooth muscle in addition to the usual components of an endometrial polyp. Grossly, adenomyomatous polyps have the same appearance as an ordinary endometrial polyp and are characterized histologically by the intertwining of smooth muscle, endometrial glands and endometrial stroma.A 32-year-old woman underwent a hysterectomy for refractory menometrorrhagia

137. Hamartomatous tongue lesions in children. (Abstract)

). Interestingly, hamartomatous lesions (18/135) were the third most common lesion category identified. Lingual hamartomas were predominantly submucosal in location and were classified histologically by tissue composition as follows: neurovascular (2/18), smooth muscle predominant (5/18), fat predominant (1/18), and smooth muscle and fat containing (10/18). All 5 smooth muscle predominant hamartomas also contained vasculature, and 1 case additionally contained salivary gland tissue. The single fat predominant (...) hamartoma additionally contained vessels and salivary gland. The final 10 hamartomas contained varying amounts of both smooth muscle and fat, and also admixed combinations of vessels, nerves, and salivary glands. Two of these 10 cases additionally contained foci of choristomatous elements, including cutaneous adnexal structures and cartilage. Most patients with hamartomatous lesions were young, 2 years or less. Eight cases were congenital in origin. Females outnumbered males by 2:1. The majority

histologic observations that may elucidate this phenomenon. An extensive PWS on the face of a 75-year-old man exhibited gross thickening with cobblestoning and nodularity. Histologic examination revealed not only the expected vascular abnormalities, but also a number of widely distributed epithelial, neural, and mesenchymal hamartomatous changes. Epithelial changes included epidermal nevus, sebaceous trichofolliculoma, and basaloid follicular hamartoma. Changes of connective tissue nevus, smooth-muscle (...) hamartoma, neural hamartoma, and subcuticular hamartoma were also noted. The complex hamartomatous changes observed in the PWS of this patient involved multiple germ lines and were distributed in a widespread pattern. These changes not only offer an explanation for the skin thickening and nodularity of this patient, but also suggest a genetically determined, multilineage developmental field defect in the pathogenesis of this lesion. Further studies of other patients are necessary to understand the full
