Pulmonary hypertension may coexist with certain diseases in neonates. Iloprost inhalation is one of the treatments which cause selective pulmonary vasodilatation. Inhalation is not an easy way of drug administration in mechanically ventilated infants; as some exhibit desaturations during inhalation. Moreover, inhalation of drug requires cessation of mechanical ventilation, if patient is on high frequency oscillatory ventilation. We presented two patients with pulmonary hypertension; term baby with congenital diaphragmatic hernia and preterm baby with respiratory distress syndrome; who had iloprost instillation during mechanical ventilation treatment...

Metastatic renal cell carcinoma (MRCC) is a rare cause of massive lower gastrointestinal bleeding (LGIB). We report a 51-year man who underwent left nephrectomy for renal cell carcinoma (RCC) 6 years ago. presenting with massive LGIB. Preoperative abdominal computed tomography (CT) revealed small bowel mass. Exploration of the abdomen revealed jejunal mass. Resection of the mass along with the jejunal segment with end-to-end anastomosis was performed. Histopathology of the jejunal mass confirmed MRCC. MRCC should be expected as a source of massive LGIB in a patient with history of RCC...

Angiomyxolipoma is a rare histological variant of lipoma, characterized by proliferation of adipose tissue associated with a variable amount of myxoid stroma with numerous thick- and thin-walled blood vessels. An exhaustive literature review could reveal only 12 cases of angiomyxolipoma affecting subcutaneous tissue, subungual area and spermatic cord. In oral cavity, only 2 cases of angiomyxolipoma have been reported to date, one case in the buccal mucosa and one case in the floor of the mouth. Hence, this is only the third case of angiomyxolipoma affecting oral cavity and the first case of angiomyxolipoma of the tongue...

Among the rare and well-known causes of sudden cardiac death by malignant arrthymias is a condition called arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy. It commonly presents with right ventricular dilatation, dysfunction and ventricular tachycardia of left bundle branch morphology due to fibro-fatty infiltration of right ventricle in second to fifth decade of life, making it an unrecognized and important cause of sudden cardiac death. Two rare variants of arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy are Carvajal syndrome and Naxos syndrome...

The aim of this study was to systematically review the efficacy and safety of iodine-125 brachytherapy combined with chemotherapy in patients with advanced lung cancer. PubMed, MEDLINE, EBSCO, FMJS and Web of Science were searched to obtain randomized controlled trials (RCTs), published in English and Chinese, until February 2016. The evaluating indicators were complete response (CR), partial response (PR), stable disease (SD), progressive disease (PD), overall response rate (ORR), disease control rate (DCR), one-year overall survival, two-year overall survival and adverse events...
