cystic lung diseases
The term "cystic lung disease" addresses the pathology of lung disease in which the predominant finding is diffuse cystic change.
Although cysts may be found radiologically in a wide variety of disease states, the entities discussed are those most likely to be encountered in biopsies where the underlying aetiology is unclear.
These include Langerhans cell histiocytosis, lymphangioleiomyomatosis and Birt-Hogg-Dubé syndrome, and recent advances in the molecular (...)
Collagenous fibroma is a distinct, benign, fibroblastic/myofibroblastic proliferation, probably neoplasm. It is a slow-growing tumor arising in predominantly subcutaneous tissue. This tumor is composed of stellate-shaped fibroblasts and abundant interstitial collagen. Since none of reported collagenous fibromas recurred, simple excision is an appropriate treatment.
Collagenous fibroma should be differentiated from fibromatosis, which has (...)
sclerozing fibroma; storiform collagenoma; solitary sclerotic fibroma
Sclerotic fibroma is a rare skin neoplasm that can be seen sporadically or in association with disorders such as Cowden’s disease. Histopathologically, the lesion is a sclerotic fibroma displaying hypocellular collagen bundles with clefts.
Sclerotic fibroma is an uncommon skin tumor associated with Cowden’s disease (multiple hamartoma syndrome). Solitary sclerotic fibroma can be seen in patients without a personal or (...)
