Age range of the patients with leiomyoma was 18-62 years. Symptoms most closely resemble those of LM. 1.9.1). Cotyledonoid LM generally exhibit prominent vessels and strong hydroponic change. ... Betegünknél ösztrogén-és WT1-pozitivitás volt kimutatható. related lesions. Compared to malignant ovarian tumors, however, ascites is absent and CA-125 values are not elevated in ALM (, In contrast to the very rare uterine ANS (see also ANS, Vol. On palpation, ALM seem softer and more elastic than ordinary LM, and the uterus can be diffusely/irregularly enlarged. HE constitutes the therapeutic measure of choice. 6: Mitotically active leiomyoma; (a): The tumor is composed of uniform spindle cells with elongated nuclei and eosinophilic cytoplasm. Severe bleeding can occur during curettage. Angioleiomyomas (Vascular leiomyomas) that are thought to arise from vascular smooth muscle. Tumor cell necrosis was absent in nine and only one had an infiltrative border. A focal fascicular pattern was present in all of the cases. Large cavernous ALM can contain ample amounts of blood. Nevertheless, they may occasionally possess one or more unusual features that are cause for alarm. FH-d morphology is usually a diffuse and well developed finding across different leiomyomas but may be absent or focal and subtle. Cotyledonoid dissecting leiomyoma is accompanied by symptoms comparable to those of ordinary leiomyoma. related lesions. May be treated medically with a selective progesterone receptor modulator, e.g. Lipoleiomyomas contain a mixture of mature adipocytes and smooth muscle cells and predominantly arise in postmenopausal women. Methods: In this prospective study, 1,845 hysterectomy and myomectomy specimens collected over a period of two years were studied. myometrium and pure mesenchymal tumours of the uterus. 03 July’19. Intratumoral bleeding with clotting occasionally results in consumptive coagulopathy (88). However, neither DLM nor a malignant tumor can be properly ruled out via diagnostic imaging (187). Usual leiomyoma constituted for 95.45% and variants of leiomyomas were 4.55%. pathology (4th ed). 2003. Results A transition to typical smooth muscle cells was found in most instances, confirming the smooth muscle origin of these tumors. Chromosomal aberrations have been observed in a number of LLM (175). These macroscopic features often give the impression of a malignant tumor. However, hemangiomas and ALM differ in that the former is usually not well-delineated from its surroundings, neither macroscopically nor microscopically. LLM can also arise in the vicinity of the ligamentum latum (260). LLM are relatively soft tumors with a whitish-yellowish color on the cut surface. Accordingly, tumors vary considerably in size, ranging from 4 to 41 cm, with a mean widest diameter of 14.2 cm. However, there are no clinical findings that can clearly differentiate these neoplasms [10. In a recent study, applying the AI letrozole (2.5mg over 3mo) to premenopausal LM patients (aged 30–55 years) achieved a tumor volume reduction of > 50% and significant symptomatology improvements (63). Variants of benign uterine smooth muscle tumors, such as mitotically active leiomyoma, cellular and highly cellular leiomyoma, epithelioid leiomyoma, and myxoid leiomyoma each have distinctive hallmarks that enable subclassification. There are accounts in which tumors have spontaneously ruptured, causing massive bleeding and hemoperitoneum (51). Usual leiomyoma constituted for 95.45% and variants of leiomyomas were 4.55%. Very large tumors often exhibit necrosis. Angioleiomyomas exhibit a huge degree of vascularization. 03 No. Conservative, organ-sparing surgery is also possible. Material and Methods: Consecutive 119 specimens of leiomyoma, leiomyoma variants, STUMP and LMS from the pathology archives of Bezmialem Medical Faculty and Cerrahpasa Medical Faculty were selected. The results provided by a working group of the DKSM reveal that LLM account for 0.98% of LM (126). Their gross appearances are often altered by various secondary changes. 1 They lack tumour necrosis and moderate to severe atypia, and have infrequent mitoses. Epithelioid smooth-muscle tumors of the uterus are uncommon neoplasms for which prognostic factors have not been well established. Adenomyosis was associated with leiomyoma in 19.23% cases. However, secondary changes and morphological variants especially those with increased cellularity, increased mitoses and nuclear atypia create diagnostic problems. Three neoplasms contained cells with abundant foamy cytoplasm that were immunoreactive for CD68, indicating that they were histiocytes and not neoplastic cells. In this study the degenerative changes present in (58.2%) of leiomyoma, these degenerative changes may occur due to inadequate blood supply which may result in hyalinization; it is present in (28.2%) of leiomyoma followed by myxoid changes in (18.2%) which is near to that reported by Gowri et al, 10 Begum et al 13 and Abraham et al. Genetic and Epigenetic Features in Uterine Smooth Muscle Tumors: An Update, Patterns of Uterine Leiomyoma in Hysterectomy Specimens: A Clinic pathological Study in Erbil Maternity Hospital, Leiomyoma with Lymphoid Infiltration: An Extremely Rare Histological Variant, Uterine Smooth Muscle Tumors of Uncertain Malignant Potential (STUMP): Review of Pathophysiology, Classification, Diagnosis, Treatment, and Surveillance, Cyto-Histological Correlation: A Tool to Assess, Improve and Assure the Quality of Cytology Laboratory, Clinicopathological Correlation of Uterine Corpus Tumors: A Study of 433 Cases, A Study on Uterine Leiomyoma with Clinicopathological Spectrum. There is no indication for any type of adjuvant therapy. Uterine leiomyomas are common benign tumors of the myometrium. Based on our findings and those in the literature, we conclude that uterine smooth-muscle tumors with a predominance of epithelioid cells are extremely uncommon and metastasize infrequently. We performed a meta-analysis of two genome-wide association studies of leiomyoma in European women (16,595 cases and 523,330 controls), uncovering 21 variants at 16 loci that associate with the disease. Similar findings were noted in many other studies. Symptoms are also reported to Degenerative changes were observed in 16.46% cases, amongst which hyaline change was the most common (6.33%). Two additional variants have potential links to hormone metabolism. In contrast to the very rare uterine ANS (see also ANS, Vol. During the follow-up time no tumour recurrence was detected and the quality of life of the patient improved significantly. Majority of the women with endometrial carcinoma were multiparous (76.9%) and belonging to the age-group of 50–59 years (38.4%). Features related to a favorable prognosis include the presence of clear cells, an expansile tumor margin, extensive hyalinization, and absence of extensive necrosis as seen microscopically. Under WHO Classification, LLM is regarded as an independent variant of LM (183). Mesenchymal tumours and However, the clinical features of ALM justify that they are discussed in the context of LM. Majority of leiomyoma cases (99.2%) were usual leiomyoma. Tumor size ranged from 1.5 to 14 cm. Although present the same cell pattern of differentiation, the origin and causes of these tumors are unknown. The distinctive gross appearance and microscopic features are embodied in the designation, "cotyledonoid dissecting leiomyoma." In: Two of the stromal nodules were polypoid intracavitary masses, three were submucosal, and one intramural. Their outer appearance often gives rise to suspicions of sarcoma. Furthermore, ALM have clinical features that are suggestive of malignant behavior, but do not fulfill the malignancy criteria. © 2008-2021 ResearchGate GmbH. or leiomyoma variants 2.3. Pedunculated subserosal ALM can reach considerable dimensions and are barely discernible from mobile ovarian tumors on palpation (84). In conclusion, patients with HLRCC undergo surgery at young ages for highly symptomatic uterine leiomyomas. Organization of Tumours. The combined context of medical history, clinical findings and diagnostic imaging justifies at least a suspicion of ALM. Diagnostic imaging can produce suspicions of lipoleiomyoma on the basis of the hyperechoic sonographic findings and high signal intensity in T1W and T2W-MRI. No data are available regarding the application of invasive-conservative procedures like embolization and high-frequency ultrasound therapy, not least because ALM are so uncommon. Solitary cutaneous leiomyoma. Multiple cutaneous (or pilar) leiomyomas arising from the arrectores pilorum muscles. However, SI is slightly higher than in ordinary LM (152, 224). Leiomyoma was the most common tumor of the myometrium constituting 99.54%. The implications of a rapidly growing uterus are discussed at length in the chapter on LMS (, The results provided by a working group of the DKSM reveal that LLM account for 0.98% of LM (126). Morphological variants and secondary changes in uterine leiomyomas – Is it important to recognize them? Majority of the patients were between 41-50 years (46.84% cases). Background: Uterine leiomyoma with lymphoid infiltration is an extremely rare variant of leiomyoma. In the majority of cases, ALM are subjected to further diagnostics because of (hyper)menorrhagia or a “rapidly growing uterus”. Kurose K, Mine N, Iida A, Nagai H, Harada H, Araki T, Emi M Genes, chromosomes & cancer. The leiomyoma variant rs10929757 (Asn77Thr) associates with endometriosis, whereas only one of the endometriosis variants, rs77294520, associates with leiomyoma in the Icelandic data (Supplementary Data 6 and 7). DPLM, IVLM or parasitic LM are further possible DD. Menorrhagia was the commonest symptom constituting 37.97% cases and fibroid uterus was the most common clinical diagnosis provided (44%). Subtypes of leiomyoma are chiefly of interest as they may mimic malignancy in some cases. A clinicopathologic study of five distinctive hemorrhagic leiomyomas associated with oral contraceptive usage, A Comparative Morphologic and Immunohistochemical Analysis of 33 Highly Cellular Leiomyomas and Six Endometrial Stromal Nodules, Two Frequently Confused Tumors, Cotyledonoid dissecting leiomyoma of the uterus. All the neoplasms had a prominent component of arterioles, which in one tumor had hyalinized walls. They are noted clinically in 20-30% of women over 30 years of age and have a tendency to regress after the menopause. All patients were of reproductive age, ranging from 23 to 41 years old, and had a pelvic mass or an enlarged uterus. In contrast to the suspicious clinical and macroscopic findings, the risk of mistaking ALM with sarcoma in histology is low. The same applies for primary and neoadjuvant CHT and/or RT in generally inoperable cases. There is no indication for systemic or radiogenic therapy. Hendrickson MR, Tavassoli FA, Kempson RL, McCluggage Both patients had also received adjuvant chemotherapy. Diagnosis of a leiomyoma is very simple, however, when unusual features are observed in some rare variants of leiomyoma, the differential diagnosis with leiomyosarcoma and other benign and malignant tumors becomes challenging. These tumours are benign, but some of the variants and secondary changes may create diagnostic difficulties. Benign tumors were diagnosed in 440 cases, and all the benign tumors were leiomyomas except one case of adenomyoma. From a clinical perspective, very rare uterine hemangioma is another differential diagnostic possibility. World Health Little is known about such tumors in terms of etiology and pathogenesis. Pathogenesis of this entity is not very clear. Conclusion: Leiomyoma was the most common pathology found in hysterectomy specimens in … The coincidence of a uterine tumor and rapid growth can arouse a suspicion of uterine sarcoma, not least because the latter also have a softer consistency than ordinary LM. Recent advances in the pathology of smooth muscle tumours of the uterus Smooth muscle tumours of the uterus are common and the majority are benign leiomyomas. ... 2 Cellular leiomyomas are defined by the WHO as a leiomyoma having cellularity which is significantly greater than that of the surrounding myometrium. Like ordinary LM, ALM can reach enormous dimensions. No data have been published on the treatment of ALM with progestins, antiprogestins, GnRH analogues and UPA. In between, there are several leiomyoma variants, such as mitotically active, cellular, and atypical leiomyomas, as well as smooth muscle tumors of uncertain malignant potential (STUMP). There is no indication for BSO. In another case, a cotyledonoid LM was excised completely at 14 weeks of gestation, and cesarean section to term revealed that the uterus was disease-free (152). Ordinary LM is the most important DD. Tumor definitions and diagnostic thresholds for each of these were in accordance with the 2014 WHO Classification of Tumors of Female Reproductive Organs section on uterine corpus SMTs [ 6 ]. Tumors with a pronounced vascular component consisting of arteries, veins or undefinable vessels are referred to as angiolipoleiomyoma (275). The same applies for primary or neoadjuvant CHT and/or RT in generally inoperable cases. Bleeding can be ample in the course of surgery, rendering endoscopic procedures rather inadequate. The Uterine Leiomyoma (ULM) also called uterine fibroid is the most common benign USMT, but at least 4 other types of tumors are part of this classification: Mitotically Active Leiomyoma (MALM), Cellular Leiomyoma (CLM), Atypical Leiomyoma (ALM), and Uncertain Malignant Potential (STUMP). Objectives: To know the incidence of leiomyoma in hysterectomy specimens and study the degenerative changes of leiomyoma and its variants. 56.96% leiomyoma’s were single and 43.04% were multiple. Mixtures of epithelioid, clear-cell, and plexiform patterns occurred with sufficient frequency to indicate that such patterns are variants of a single entity. LLM are usually only diagnosed as such after surgery, if prior diagnostic imaging reveals nothing suspicious. The symptoms of and findings for uterine angioleiomyoma largely correspond to those of ordinary leiomyoma. The neoplasms typically exhibited focal irregular extension into the adjacent myometrium, and this feature was conspicuous in 18 of them. No single histologic feature is predictive of metastatic potential. Hypointense sections correspond to the smooth muscle component. Strongly vascularized tumors also clearly present as such in sonography when localized in the ligamentum latum (44). Uterine leiomyosarcomas are characterized by high p16, p53 and MIB1 expression in comparison with usual leiomyomas, leiomyoma variants and smooth muscle tumours of uncertain malignant potential. The presence of ample dilated vessels renders ALM relatively soft compared to ordinary uterine LM, and elastic like rubber. CONCLUSIONS: Accurate knowledge of these variants and degenerative changes in leiomyomas are mandatory to prevent misdiagnosis and over treatment along with undue stress to the patient. Majority of the cases were multiparous females (88.6%) in fourth and fifth decades of life (77%) and presenting with heavy menstrual bleeding (35.9%). Eleven of 18 whose consistency is known were soft, fish-flesh, or rubbery, 10 were yellow or yellow-tan; one had a prominent cystic component. The tumors ranged from 0.5 to 15 cm (mean, 4.6 cm) in maximum dimension. Fox H, Wells M (Eds). In diagnostic imaging, both sonography and MRI reveal numerous voids, which correspond to vessels, within the typical leiomyoma picture. However, the distribution and topography of FH-d morphology and FH loss by IHC in the context of multiple leiomyomas in patients with HLRCC has not been evaluated. T2W-MRI reveals a tumor with both hyperintense fluid-filled and solid hypointense areas that correspond to the smooth musculature. Both hysterectomy specimens were also notable for showing scattered irregular tongues and nodules of smooth muscle proliferation (leiomyomatosis-like) in the background myometrium. There is a broad spectrum of leiomyoma variants: some have a single histologic finding that is associated with leiomyosarcoma, such as an increased mitotic index or severe cytologic atypia, while other growth pattern variants are defined by their capacity to spread to peritoneal surfaces or solid organs but are histologically benign. They often merged almost imperceptibly with the adjacent myometrium. Their gross appearances are often altered by various secondary changes. 2, Chapter 1), ALM do not express CD34 (58). Objectives: To study the histomorphological features of variants of leiomyomas of myometrium in our institution from hysterectomy and myomectomy specimens. In sonography, angioleiomyomas are well-delineated, exhibit ample vascularity, contain numerous anechoic voids, and possibly cystic sections. 2, Chapter 1), ALM do not express CD34 (58). Combined with the edemas and vessels, the tumor’s dark-red color and sponge-like structure render it similar to placental cotyledons when it has spread beyond the uterus (hence the name). The spindle cells are positive for SMA, desmin, vimentin, caldesmon, ER and PGR (36, 58, 84, 91, 154). In contrast, Uterine Leiomyosarcoma (ULMSs) occurs with lower frequency but higher recurrence, metastasis, and mortality rates. ulipristal (Fibristal). An intravascular component was not a feature. Two tumors had grade 1 nuclei; both were examples of intravenous leiomyomatosis. Hysterectomy is the procedure of choice, organ-sparing surgery is possible. Like ordinary LM, multiple ALM can arise synchronously. Reconstruction of the tissue defect was performed using oncoplastic guidelines. Ten tumors had grade 2 nuclei. Affected women frequently have disorders in their fat-related metabolism and are often heavy by comparison. The current WHO Classification (183) does not list uterine ALM as a variant of LM. ALM largely correspond to LM in terms of clinical symptomatology and findings, though there are some noteworthy particularities. Five tumors were entirely well circumscribed and one predominantly well circumscribed with limited extension into the adjacent myometrium. An intravascular component was not a feature. All patients were of reproductive age, ranging from 23 to 41 years old, and had a pelvic mass or an enlarged uterus. FH-deficient uterine leiomyomas can show characteristic morphologic features (FH-d morphology) that have been previously described. The cells have an oval nucleus and are long and slender, and usually there is very little atypia (although there are some benign variants of leiomyoma that have atypia). Twenty-eight of the leiomyomas were intramural and five, submucosal. Despite the tumor’s “threatening” macroscopic and microscopic spread characteristics, including VI, it remains benign and can be discerned from STUMP and LMS (see below) on the basis of its macroscopy and the defined histologic criteria (absence of TCN, atypia and mitoses) (see also Tab. THE is the standard surgical procedure. On microscopic examination, they were densely cellular and composed of cells that ranged from round to spindle-shaped and had scanty cytoplasm. Page: 162-164. The treatment of choice is a surgical removal of the entire tumor. Microscopically, they were characterized by stellate zones of recent hemorrhage within nodules of hypercellular smooth muscle. Atypia or not, they have a very low mitotic index. However, malignant transformation appears to be generally possible (182). As is the case for all adipocytic tumors, sonography reveals more or less expansive hyperechoic areas in an otherwise hypoechoic uterine mass (191). The solid components show strong enhancement in contrast MRI. The implications of a rapidly growing uterus are discussed at length in the chapter on LMS (Chapter 2). Only two cases have been reported in which local recurrence developed after surgery on extragenital ALM, though no mention is made of the surgical procedures applied (82). There are also known accounts of entirely extrauterine growth (152, 215).
