One night, after finding out that a skip lesion
had been left behind during the first cancer surgery, my older sister came to me with furrowed brows, visibly concerned.
The tubal lesion is a skip lesion
. Cervical leiomyosarcoma is indicated by arrows.
* To establish whether the lesion is benign or malignant, presence of a lesion or skip lesion
in surgically suspicious tissue area.
The existence and localization of the skip lesion
was first confirmed by transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography.
No skip lesion
was noted at the time of laparotomy.
This finding lends support to the appendicial "skip lesion
Typical UC involves the rectum and extends proximally continuously without skip lesion
. However, several atypical features may lead to misdiagnosis as CD.
(4) CD is one of the most common inflammatory bowel diseases and is characterized by chronic, relapsing, remitting, inflammation that may have skip lesions
mainly in the small and large intestine.
On the other hand, the concern of possible malignant potential in CMPTs comes from focally destroyed alveolar structures, central fibrosis, proliferation along the alveolar walls, the existence of skip lesions
, the lack of encapsulation, the presence of a micropapillary pattern, and positive immunostaining for CEA.
Osteosarcomas may have skip lesions
, which are osseous or marrow metastasis within the same bone or adjacent bones in relation to the dominant lesion.
It is associated with increased local recurrence, possibly due to perineural skip lesions
or missed areas of positive margin [24, 25].
Simultaneous sites of disease may also represent more concerning pathology such as osteosarcoma with skip lesions
or other metastatic bone disease.
