Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG PET/CT) has an effective role in both diagnosis and management of patients with lung cancer. There are many reasons could cause false positivity on PET/CT.A 60-year-old man was admitted a mass on thorax CT and diagnosed as squamous cell carcinoma. Lobectomy with lymph node dissection was performed after evaluation of distant metastases. There were pathological lymph nodes detected on PET/CT at six month following period. Endobronchial ultrasonography guided transbronchial needle aspiration was performed for differantial diagnosis...

We describe the case of a 16-year-old male who aspirated a beverage can tab resulting in significant functional impairment. Since the introduction of beverage can opening tabs ("pop-tops" or "pull-tabs") nearly 50 years ago, five cases of their aspiration have been reported in the literature and this is the first case to report tracheal lodgment. We describe the clinical course for this patient including the inadequacy of radiographic evaluation and a significant delay in diagnosis. We highlight unique features of small aluminum foreign bodies that require consideration and mention a potential change in epidemiology associated with evolving product design...

Background Foreign body aspiration refers to the inhalation of an object into the respiratory system and is a serious and potentially fatal event. A distinct group of patients has recently been recognized among Muslim nations. These patients include women who wear headscarves and place the safety pin in their mouth prior to securing the veils, leading to accidental foreign body aspiration. The aim of this study was to analyze the main presentation, diagnosis, treatment, and outcome of patients with scarf pin aspiration...

It is unusual but not uncommon for foreign bodies to be missed at bronchoscopy. This case report highlights the importance of the clinical history in the diagnosis of aspirated foreign bodies and the usefulness of chest imaging modalities. A 6-year-old boy presented with recurrent breathlessness and cough of 2 months. He was said to have aspirated the base cap of a pen at about the time symptoms started. He had two sessions of rigid bronchoscopy and a session of flexible bronchoscopy at three different hospitals...

Foreign body aspiration (FBA) is a preventable cause of mortality and morbidity in children. We conducted a chart review of children who presented to a university hospital due to FBA in the period 1999-2014. Children were either managed with bronchoscopy for removal of the foreign body or died due to FBA. A total of 103 children were seen due to FBA including 27 deaths. The majority of children were boys and were less than 3 years old. Most aspirated foreign bodies were food-related, mainly peanuts. The majority of children presented with acute choking incidents, a smaller number presented with recurrent chest infections, and few children's choking incidents were unwitnessed...

INTRODUCTION: Granulomatous Mastitis (GM) is a rare, benign, inflammatory disease of the breast. It is a well known mimicker of malignancy, clinically and radiologically. Patients are often subjected to number of tests for the right diagnosis. Non-specific Granulomatous Mastitis (NGM) and Tubercular Mastitis (TBM) are chief among the various causes of GM. They are important to be diagnosed early as their treatment varies significantly. Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) is simple, patient friendly and primary investigation modality in cases of lump in breast...

Large bowel perforation is an abdominal emergency that results from a wide range of etiologies. Computed tomography is the most reliable modality in detecting the site of large bowel perforation. The diagnosis is made by identifying direct CT findings such as extraluminal gas or contrast and discontinuity along the bowel wall. Indirect CT findings can help support the diagnosis, and include bowel wall thickening, pericolic fat stranding, abnormal bowel wall enhancement, abscess, and a feculent collection adjacent to the bowel...

Pulmonary mucoepidermoid carcinoma (PMEC) is rare. To date, primary PMEC has not been reported in a child younger than 3 years of age. We report a case of a 2-year-old boy who presented with 3 episodes of wheezing, cough, and fever over a period of 1 month. Radiologic findings were consistent with foreign body aspiration with consequent bronchial obstruction. Bronchoscopy was performed and attempts to retrieve the foreign body resulted in a biopsy of a fleshy lesion. By histology, the lesion was an epithelial neoplasm comprising cells arranged in a nested pattern...

Hyuckgoo Kim, Sun Ok Song, Gul Jung
Recent reports suggest that ultrasound-guided stellate ganglion block (SGB) is safer and more accurate than classic SGB by the using the surface anatomical landmark. However, previous reports concern the classic paratracheal approach using a small specialized curved probe, which may not be appropriate in some patients. The authors have attempted several approaches, including paratracheal, trans-thyroidal, lateral paracarotid, and lateral approaches, to find a safe and suitable method for real-time ultrasound-guided SGB using a standard high-frequency linear probe...

Foreign body ingestion and foreign body aspiration commonly affect young children between 6 months and 6 years. A large number of these events remain unwitnessed and asymptomatic while the swallowed foreign body traverses the gastrointestinal tract and is passed in the stool. Recent literature has shown an increase in morbidity associated with button battery and (neomydium) magnet ingestions in children, particularly over the last decade. Early identification and management in a time critical manner is required in cases where button batteries get lodged in the oesophagus or multiple magnets are swallowed...

Esophageal chondromatous hamartomas are very rare tumors, characterized by proliferating hyaline cartilage cells. We described the case of a 64-year-old woman, with a progressive foreign body sensation in the laryngopharynx caused by an intraluminal pedicled mass. Transcervical esophagectomy was performed and intraoperative biopsy revealed the mass was a cervical esophageal chondromatous hamartoma. The patient's postoperative course was uneventful and she recovered well. A review of the literature was conducted, and the symptoms, locations, histopathology findings, treatment methods and follow up results of esophageal hamartoma cases were summarized...

BACKGROUND: Foreign Body Aspiration (FBA) is a serious problem in children and delays in diagnosis and management can be devastating. The history is often vague, with subtle physical and chest radiograph abnormalities. This study aims to determine the indications for bronchoscopy in children with suspected FBA and evaluate the key clinical and statistically significant predictors of FBA, based on the patients' historical, physical and radiological findings at presentation. METHODS: This is a retrospective observational study, including patients who were admitted between January 2001 to January 2011 with suspected FBA...
