On physical examination, a firm, painless, mobile mass was palpated in the subcutaneo…
  • Elastofibroma dorsi: case report and review of the literature. [Case Reports]
    Pan Afr Med J. 2017; 28:34.Karrakchou B, Yaikoubi Y, … Jalil A
  • Elastofibroma dorsi (ED) is an uncommon benign soft tissue tumor with an uncertain pathogenesis. It mostly occurs in the infrascapular region of elderly people with a female predominance. Typically bilateral, ED can also be unilateral. While many patients remain asymptomatic, ED can be responsible of a periscapular arch source of ache. The diagnosis of ED is set on magnetic resonance imaging, and…

  • Elastofibromas are rare benign, soft-tissue slow-growing tumors seen predominantly in elderly females. The most common location is the infrascapular region. These benign tumors require resection only in symptomatic cases. We present a case of elastofibroma in a 46-year-old female. She presented with gradually increasing soft-tissue swelling of 8 cm × 6 cm in the right inferior subscapular region …
  • Thoracic Extradural Cavernous Hemangioma Mimicking a Dumbbell-Shaped Tumor. [Case Reports]
    J Korean Neurosurg Soc. 2015 Jul; 58(1):72-5.Jeong WJ, Choi I, … Roh SW
  • Dumbbell-shaped spinal extradural cavernous hemangioma is rare. The differential diagnosis of dumbbell-shaped spinal tumors based on magnetic resonance imaging includes schwannoma and lymphoma. Here, we report a dumbbell-shaped spinal extradural cavernous hemangioma with intrathoracic growth on T2-3 in a 64-year-old man complaining of right side infrascapular area back pain with no neurologic def…
  • [Clinical diagnostic features of surgical treatment for thoracic outlet syndrome]. [Journal Article]
    Zh Vopr Neirokhir Im N N Burdenko. 2015; 79(2):55-63.Muin R, Magomedov RK, Tsuladze II
  • The thoracic outlet syndrome is characterized by a variety of clinical signs due to multiple causes resulting in compression of a neurovascular bundle in a relatively narrow anatomical space. Despite the frequently encountered clinical symptoms, inadequate attention is paid to their analysis, and their diagnostic and surgical aspects require a modern approach. The study included 46 patients. The …
  • Elastofibroma dorsi incidentally detected by (18)F-FDG PET/CT imaging. [Journal Article]
    Ann Nucl Med. 2015 Jun; 29(5):420-5.Erhamamci S, Reyhan M, … Canpolat T
  • CONCLUSIONS: Elastofibroma dorsi located in the scapular region is usually bilateral, asymmetric and with mild or moderate metabolic activity on PET/CT imaging. In addition, the metabolic activity and size of ED remained stable after chemoradiotherapy. Awareness of these metabolic characteristics of ED is important for preventing misinterpretation during (18)F-FDG PET/CT studies.

    Ann Transl Med. 2013 Oct; 1(3):31.Braham E, Hergli I, … El Mezni F
  • Elastofibromas are benign soft tissue tumors. They occur mostly in the infrascapular region between the thoracic wall, the serratus anterior and the latissimus dorsi muscle, with a prevalence of up to 24% in the elderly. The etiology of this lesion remains uncertain and is a source of ongoing debate. We herein report a 54-year-old female patient, manual worker who presented with bilateral subscap…

  • Elastofibroma is a benign fibroproliferative tumor of unknown origin and pathogenesis. It usually appears in the subscapular or infrascapular area. It is extremely rare in the spinal area, and it is most common in middle-aged women. In most cases, it is asymptomatic. Its diagnosis is based on nuclear MRI, where it presents a homogeneous lesion, similar to the skeletal muscle, hyperintense in T1-w…

  • [Bilateral elastofibroma dorsi]. [Case Reports]
    Ann Dermatol Venereol. 2012 Jan; 139(1):41-5.Hocar O, Buffard V, … Bagot M
  • CONCLUSIONS: Elastofibroma dorsi is an uncommon, benign, non-encapsulated pseudo-tumour occurring in connective tissue of the infrascapular region of elderly patients. Another mass must be sought in all cases in the corresponding contralateral site since this form of tumour is often bilateral.EFD must be considered in the differential diagnosis of shoulder masses in elderly patients.
