Palisaded Encapsulated Neuroma of the Trunk: A Case Report and Review of Palisaded Encapsulated Neuroma

View Article: PubMed Central - HTML - PubMed

ABSTRACT

Palisaded encapsulated neuroma is a rare, benign cutaneous tumor. It most commonly presents as a solitary, flesh-colored, dome-shaped nodule affecting the face. However, albeit rarely, palisaded encapsulated neuroma may also appear on the trunk, genitals, or extremities. We describe the clinical and pathologic findings of a male patient who presented with a palisaded encapsulated neuroma on his left flank. In addition, we review the characteristics of patients with truncal palisaded encapsulated neuromas and summarize the clinical and histologic differential diagnosis of this tumor.

No MeSH data available.

A high magnification view of the microscopic changes noted on a palisaded encapsulated neuroma from a tissue biopsy of a 65-year-old male's left flank tumorFascicles of benign-appearing spindle cells with palisading of their nuclei are observed in the upper dermis. There are also clefts between the neural cells and the surrounding stroma. (Hematoxylin and eosin; x20)

There are also clefts between the neural cells and the surrounding stroma. (Hematoxylin and eosin; x20)

Mentions: A cutaneous examination revealed a 3 x 3 millimeter dome-shaped, flesh-colored papule on his left flank (Figure 1). A microscopic examination of the tissue specimen revealed a benign neoplasm of neural differentiation. There were fascicles of benign-appearing spindle cells with palisading of their nuclei. There were also clefts between the cells and the surrounding stroma (Figure 2).
