We describe the case of a 73-year-old man who experienced dry cough and exertional dyspnea after dabigatran administration. Chest radiographs revealed the development of bilateral consolidative and ground glass opacity, and transbronchial lung biopsy showed organized materials in the alveolar spaces with moderate inflammatory infiltrate and focal fibrosis. Lung opacity gradually disappeared after discontinuing dabigatran. To date, there has been only one report regarding dabigatran-induced lung injury, except for alveolar hemorrhage and eosinophilic pneumonia...

BACKGROUND: Birt-Hogg-Dubé syndrome (BHDS) (OMIM #135150) is an autosomal dominant disease, characterized by fibrofolliculomas (FFs) of the skin, pulmonary cysts with/without pneumothorax, and renal tumors. The prevalence of skin manifestations reported for Japanese BHDS patients is lower (<30%) compared with that of Western countries (75∼90%), which appear to be underestimated. OBJECTIVE: To precisely examine the prevalence of skin lesions with dermoscopy and histopathology with reference to genetic analyses...

Lung cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer-related mortality and is categorized into small cell lung cancer (SCLC) and non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). We present a patient with epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-mutant-NSCLC who developed metastatic SCLC after initial therapy with second-generation EGFR-tyrosine kinase inhibitor, afatinib. A 65-year-old male non-smoker was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma of the right lung, stage IVA (M1a). Due to tumor positivity for EGFR-Exon 19 deletion, the patient was started on oral afatinib, which resulted in a partial response...

The development of a minimally invasive test, such as liquid biopsy, for early lung cancer detection in its preclinical phase is crucial to improve the outcome of this deadly disease. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are tissue specific, small, non-coding RNAs regulating gene expression, which may act as extracellular messengers of biological signals derived from the cross-talk between the tumor and its surrounding microenvironment. They could thus represent ideal candidates for early detection of lung cancer. In this work, a methodological workflow for the prospective validation of a circulating miRNA test using custom made microfluidic cards and quantitative Real-Time PCR in plasma samples of volunteers enrolled in a lung cancer screening trial is proposed...

This Review provides an updated approach to the diagnosis of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), based on a systematic search of the medical literature and the expert opinion of members of the Fleischner Society. A checklist is provided for the clinical evaluation of patients with suspected usual interstitial pneumonia (UIP). The role of CT is expanded to permit diagnosis of IPF without surgical lung biopsy in select cases when CT shows a probable UIP pattern. Additional investigations, including surgical lung biopsy, should be considered in patients with either clinical or CT findings that are indeterminate for IPF...

Non invasive somatic detection assays are suitable for repetitive tumor characterization or for detecting the appearance of somatic resistance during lung cancer. Molecular diagnosis based on circulating free DNA (cfDNA) offers the opportunity to track the genomic evolution of the tumor, and was chosen to assess the molecular profile of several EGFR alterations, including deletions in exon 19 (delEX19), the L858R substitution on exon 21 and the EGFR resistance mutation T790M on exon 20. Our study aimed at determining optimal pre-analytical conditions and EGFR mutation detection assays for analyzing cfDNA using the picoliter-droplet digital polymerase chain reaction (ddPCR) assay...

Detection and diagnosis of cancer are especially important for early prevention and effective treatments. Traditional methods of cancer detection are usually time-consuming and expensive. Liquid biopsy, a newly proposed noninvasive detection approach, can promote the accuracy and decrease the cost of detection according to a personalized expression profile. However, few studies have been performed to analyze this type of data, which can promote more effective methods for detection of different cancer subtypes...

We investigated the concordance of programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) expression between primary cancer at initial diagnosis and metastasis at recurrence in resected non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). PD-L1 expression was evaluated using the SP142 assay in 37 NSCLC patients with paired primary lung cancer and surgically resected metastases at recurrence. PD-L1 positivity was defined as immunohistochemistry (IHC) and also evaluated by RNA in situ hybridization (RISH). The concordance rate of PD-L1 between primaries and metastases and correlation with clinicopathological factors were analyzed...

The lungs are one of the most common organs to which cancer metastasizes, but are a location not common for uterine sarcoma. A malignant mixed Müllerian tumor (MMMT) of the uterus is an extremely rare and aggressive sarcoma, characterized by a mixture of epithelial and mesenchymal components. There are few reports regarding the pulmonary metastasis from MMMTs. The present study presents the case of a 58-year-old woman with hemoptysis and post-menopausal vaginal bleeding. The woman was initially diagnosed with invasive aspergillosis based on a chest computed tomography (CT) scan showing multiple pulmonary nodular opacities surrounded by a ground-glass attenuation halo (halo-sign)...

Lungs are one of most metastatic areas for primitive neuroectodermal tumor (PNET), however primary pulmonary PNET is extremely rare. Here we present a case of a 58-year-old male patient with a tumor in the right lung that originated from the lung but not from chest wall. Patient was diagnosed with PNET following histological and immunohistochemical examination of CT-guided percutaneous tru-cut needle biopsy and no distant metastasis were detected in PET-CT scan. As advised recently in published literature, surgical resection following neoadjuvant chemotherapy protocol is preferred in the treatment of our patient as it has better success of complete resection leading to higher 5-year survival rates...

Anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) rearrangement is most commonly observed in lung adenocarcinoma in a subset of lung cancer. Large-cell neuroendocrine carcinoma (LCNEC) harboring an ALK rearrangement is very rare. Based on the findings from a transbronchial lung biopsy, a 75-year-old non-smoking woman was diagnosed with LCNEC with multiple liver and bone metastases. After seven cycles of cytotoxic chemotherapy, her genotype testing demonstrated ALK rearrangement. Subsequently, she was administered alectinib and exhibited a partial response...

A 66-year-old woman with a history of interstitial lung disease presented with a 3-month history of dropped head syndrome (DHS), followed by camptocormia and extremity weakness. A clinical examination revealed Raynaud phenomenon, arthralgia, distal skin sclerosis, and microbleeds in the nailfold capillaries. An anti-Ku antibody test was positive. A muscle biopsy revealed inflammatory myopathy with rimmed vacuoles (RVs). The diagnosis of scleroderma-polymyositis (SSc-PM) overlap syndrome was made. RVs on a muscle biopsy in a patient with inflammatory myositis involving axial muscles may be seen either in inclusion body myositis or SSc-PM overlap syndrome...
