Branchioma


Presentation

  • We present here two additional cases of EHT. The first is a benign case in a 31-year-old man, showing typical histological features.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Prof. ]\Iesnil (1897) referred to the presence of pigmented segmental organs in the 5th, fith, 7th and 8th chae- tiferous segments, and, in 1898, stated that four or five pairs were present; Prof.[alamy.es]
Fever
  • […] you have any of the following symptoms after your surgery, report them to your doctor: bleeding from the site of your incision pain that doesn’t go away with medication clear, sticky, or colored fluid seeping from your incision changes in your voice a fever[healthline.com]

Swelling
  • If the fluid doesn’t leak and begins to accumulate, it can swell. There are small grooves in your neck that appear during early fetal development. These grooves are known as branchial clefts. Normally, they disappear over time.[healthline.com]
  • If the fluid doesn’t leak and begins to accumulate, the tube swells and causes a cyst.[drjio.com]
Pathologist
  • After the operation, the pathologist diagnosed it as Ectopic Hamartomatous Thymoma. INTERVENTIONS: A complete resection was performed. OUTCOMES: To date, the patient had no evidence of metastasis or recurrence for 26 months after the operation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Martha Ballzs, head pathologist of Jlnos Hospital (Budapest) for rendering the autopsy records at their disposal. REFERENCES 1. von Volkmann R: Das tief branchiogenes Halskarzinom. Zbl Chir 9:49, 1882. 2. Sutton JB: Tumours-Innocent and Malignant .[docslide.com.br]
Dyspnea at Rest
  • The patient, although well developed, was rather thin and had dyspnea at rest, emphysema, enlarged heart, and blood pressure of 195/85 mm Hg. The internists opinion was that surgery, even under local anesthesia, was contrain- dicated.[docslide.com.br]
Neck Pain
  • Signs of a branchioma are: an olive or egg-sized growth under the skin on the side of the neck pain in the area containing the growth a moveable mass under the skin Most of the time, the tube itself causes no pain.[drjio.com]
Ulcer
  • Male patient (N.Gy.) 43 years old, showing ulcerated NmOr formed for carcinoma at the border of the rectum and sigmoid flexure. Clinical examination in February, 1976 revealed a dense, smooth-surfaced resistance (lymph node?)[docslide.com.br]
Fear
  • Removal of the tumor could not be accom- plished, again fearing cardiac failure. After cardiac ther- apy the patient was discharged.[docslide.com.br]
Neck Mass
  • A 71 year old man with a lateral neck mass is reported. A careful physical examination including that of x-ray, endoscopy and ultrasonography failed to reveal any lesion anywhere except at the lateral neck. Brachiogenic carcinoma was suspected.[webview.isho.jp]

Confusion
  • In addition, it can be considered to update the name to "biphenotypic branchioma" in order to avoid conceptual confusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Easily confused with P. maculata. *** Phyllodoce multipapillata Kravitz & Jones, 1979 Kravitz & Jones, 1979: Bull. So. Calif. Acad. Sci. 78: 14, f.4C-D [?][annelida.net]

Workup

  • […] anterior neck at the angle of the left mandible and juxtaposed to the parotid gland as determined by computed tomographic scan and examination during surgery; (2) the presence of a sinus tract connecting the cyst superiorly; and (3) extensive clinical workup[enjoypath.com]

Treatment

  • The mastery of the clinical and pathological features of the disease will contribute to the rapid diagnosis and treatment of the disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Treatment How Are Branchiomas Treated? Almost always, branchiomas are surgically removed. You will be given anesthesia for the procedure. You will also be asked to fast for at least eight hours before the operation begins.[drjio.com]

  • In approximately 20% of cases, the primary tumors are never found, possibly due to tumor regression or treatment with radiotherapy.[enjoypath.com]

Prognosis

  • Additionally, SCC arising from the tonsillar crypt epithelium has a much better prognosis when compared with that of the oropharynx, with a 77% survival at 5 years 2. The existence of branchiogenic carcinoma remains controversial.[enjoypath.com]
