BACKGROUND: Using a breath sound analyzer, we investigated clinical parameters for detecting bronchial reversibility in infants. METHODS: A total of 59 infants (4-39 months, mean age 7.8 months) were included. In Study 1, the intra- and inter-observer variability was measured in 23 of 59 infants. Breath sound parameters, the frequency at 99% of the maximum frequency (F99), frequency at 25%, 50%, and 75% of the power spectrum (Q25, Q50, and Q75), and highest frequency of inspiratory breath sounds (HFI), and parameters obtained using the ratio of parameters, i...

BACKGROUND: The incidence, risk factors, and consequences of pneumonia after flexible bronchoscopy in patients with lung cancer have not been studied in detail. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed the data from 237 patients with lung cancer who underwent diagnostic bronchoscopy between April 2012 and July 2013 (derivation sample) and 241 patients diagnosed between August 2013 and July 2014 (validation sample) in a tertiary referral hospital in Japan. A score predictive of post-bronchoscopy pneumonia was developed in the derivation sample and tested in the validation sample...

BACKGROUND: The significance of percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) in patients with aspiration pneumonia is unknown. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical characteristics and outcomes of aspiration pneumonia patients who underwent PEG. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study of consecutive patients hospitalized with pneumonia who underwent PEG from 2005 to 2014. RESULTS: Of 2281 cases of pneumonia, 92 patients with aspiration pneumonia underwent PEG during their hospital stay...

BACKGROUND: The role of surgery in the onset of sarcoidosis is unclear. We investigated whether surgery is an internal environmental factor for sarcoidosis onset within the Japanese population. METHODS: We enrolled 222 patients diagnosed with sarcoidosis (78 men, 144 women) who were admitted to our department between 1984 and 2012. We also enrolled 529 control subjects (251 men, 278 women), who were matched for sex, age at admission, and year of admission. Surgical history, family history, and smoking status were evaluated...

REVIEW
Younsuck Koh
The acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is typically manifested by refractory hypoxemia with high mortality. A correct diagnosis is the first step to achieve better outcomes. An early intervention to manage modifiable risk factors of ARDS development and the avoidance of aggravating factors that increase disease severity and progression should be carefully addressed. A management plan is necessary at an early stage of ARDS to determine the level of intensive care. It should be carefully decided which therapeutic measures should be performed depending on the patient׳s underlying clinical condition...

REVIEW
Atsushi Suzuki, Yasuhiro Kondoh
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a progressive and devastating disease with a median survival time of 2-3 years after diagnosis. Patients with IPF exhibit distinct patterns of disease progression, and some patients display a more rapidly progressive clinical course. The clinical course of IPF may also include periods of acute deterioration, which are termed acute exacerbations. Patients with IPF frequently experience various comorbidities, such as pulmonary infection, emphysema, pulmonary hypertension, lung cancer, gastroesophageal reflux, cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus, and obstructive sleep apnea...

We describe a 55-year-old man who received stereotactic radiotherapy (SRT) for the treatment of brain metastasis from lung adenocarcinoma. Fourteen months after SRT, right-sided hemiparesis developed, and magnetic resonance imaging revealed progression of perifocal edema and an enhanced lesion. Cerebral radiation necrosis was diagnosed, and treatment with bevacizumab was initiated. The lesion clearly responded to bevacizumab therapy, but reenlarged 8 months later and was surgically resected. Histopathological analysis of the resected specimen revealed large areas of necrosis; however, viable tumor cells were detected in the necrotic areas...

A 59-year-old woman with epidermal growth factor receptor gene (EGFR) mutation-positive advanced lung adenocarcinoma was treated with afatinib after a diagnosis of chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML). Twenty-one weeks later, she developed agranulocytosis, and CMML subsequently progressed to blast crisis. After complete remission of CMML, gefitinib was initiated; however, agranulocytosis recurred. This is the first reported case of both EGFR mutation-positive advanced non-small cell lung cancer with CMML, and of CMML blast crisis...

We herein report on two middle-aged men with TAFRO (thrombocytopenia, anasarca, fever, reticulin fibrosis or renal failure, and organomegaly) syndrome, a unique clinicopathological variant of multicentric Castleman׳s disease recently proposed in Japan. Strikingly similar anterior mediastinal fat swellings with soft tissue density were observed in the patients on chest computed tomography. In TAFRO syndrome, bilateral pleural effusion and slight lymph node swelling are common in the thoracic region; however, anterior mediastinal lesions have not been previously observed...

BACKGROUND: The Severe Respiratory Insufficiency (SRI) Questionnaire was originally developed in German to assess health-related quality of life (HRQL) and was validated as a multidimensional instrument with high psychometric properties in chronic hypercapnic respiratory failure (CHRF) patients receiving noninvasive ventilation (NIV). We aimed to investigate the intercultural adaptation of the Japanese SRI Questionnaire and whether it is a reliable and valid HRQL questionnaire to administer to those patients...

BACKGROUND: The demand for adequate tissue samples for both morphological assessment and molecular studies on lung cancer treatment has increased. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether cell blocks (CBs) prepared from endobronchial ultrasonography with guide sheath (EBUS-GS) rinsing following catheter aspiration provide additional information. METHODS: We produced CBs from rinse fluid obtained from washing the inside of the sheath with saline after conventional EBUS-GS between May 2012 and April 2013...

BACKGROUND: Patients with connective tissue diseases (CTDs) are at increased risk for lung cancer (LC); interstitial lung disease (ILD) is a common form of organ dysfunction in cases of CTD. However, the influence of ILD on the treatment and prognosis in LC patients with CTD is unclear. METHODS: Between January 2010 and December 2014, 27 patients among all patients with CTD at our institution were diagnosed with primary LC. We retrospectively analyzed the clinical features, treatment modalities, and outcomes of these patients, and evaluated the potential prognostic factors...

BACKGROUND: Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is commonly concomitant with lung cancer, and its acute exacerbation (AE) is the most serious complication in patients receiving treatment for lung cancer. METHODS: To investigate the incidence and characteristic features of AE of ILD, we conducted a retrospective study of 665 consecutive patients with lung cancer who were treated at our institute between 2008 and 2014. RESULTS: Among the 665 patients, 74 (11...

BACKGROUND: The number of reports concerning Japanese herbal medicine (JHM)-induced pneumonitis has increased. However, comprehensive data are lacking in this regard, and the clinical characteristics of the disease remain unclear. METHODS: A literature review was performed using PubMed and Ichushi-Web-the database of the Japan Medical Abstracts Society-to identify articles published between 1996 and 2015 describing patients with JHM-induced pneumonitis. The final cohort included 73 patients in 59 articles (7 in English; 52 in Japanese)...

BACKGROUND: Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is strongly associated with polymyositis (PM), dermatomyositis (DM), and clinically amyopathic dermatomyositis (CADM). It is also related to mortality. Previous studies have highlighted that the acute form of PM/DM/CADM-associated ILD (PM/DM/CADM-ILD) has a poor short-term prognosis. However, little is known about the long-term clinical features of patients with PM/DM/CADM-ILD. The aim of the present study is to clarify the clinical characteristics and the predictive factors for long-term outcomes in patients with PM/DM/CADM-ILD...
