     Pediatric Radiology CasesMost likely etiology:

    congenital  

     
     Pediatric Radiology CasesHistory:

    SInce birth, there was a 3.x3 cm, indolent swelling in the back with slight increase in size. Localized dorsally in the thoracic vertebral area between the shoulder blades. Otherwise, the child is unremarkable.  

     
     Pediatric Radiology CasesPathomorphology or Pathophysiology of this disease :

    In a hibernoma, the tumor is composed of brown fatty tissue, which is known in the animal-world as the hibernation gland. Brown fatty tissue is known to be located in the back area, around the kidneys and around the aorta in a baby.  

     
     Pediatric Radiology CasesRadiological findings:


    MRI 1 <- view MRI 1

    MRI 1: T1-weighted image, sagittal: about 3.5 x 1 x 3 cm hyperintense tumorous mass in the subcutaneous fatty tissue.






    MRI 2 <- view MRI 2

    MRI 2: T1-weighted image; transversal: about 3.5 x 1 x 3 cm hyperintense tumorous mass in the subcutaneous fatty tissue.

    Also in the T2-weighted image (no image): hyperintense. Due to the T2-weighted TSE sequence, no proof of liquid components (no image). No proof of a tethered cord.

     Pediatric Radiology CasesDiagnosis confirmation:

    Surgery / Histo  

     
     Pediatric Radiology CasesWhich DD would be also possible with the radiological findings:

    Lipoma, lipomatous tumor in a meningocele  

     
     Pediatric Radiology CasesCourse / Prognosis / Frequency / Other :

    Rare, benign tumor with tendency for growth.
    Often, the hibernoma is asymptomatic. Treatment: Surgical resection is suggested, although no tendency for malignancy has been noted. In complete resection no regression has been described.
