Tumors rarely metastasize to the foot bones; however, a misdiagnosis can lead to a poor outcome. These metastatic tumors can cause foot pain and other symptoms in patients who are asymptomatic for the primary tumor. To accurately diagnose acrometastases, the attending physician must have a high index of suspicion and conduct a thorough examination and appropriate diagnostic testing. We present a rare case of metastatic pulmonary adenocarcinoma of the talus, which was initially misdiagnosed as a benign bone cyst...

Pulmonary cyst is a relatively common benign lesion. It is easy to be misdiagnosed when the cyst complicated with infection. This paper reported a case of a giant traumatic pulmonary cyst (diameter 10 cm) combined with chronic infection. Firstly, the patient was diagnosed as cholesterol pleurisy after undergoing thoracoscopic biopsy. With repeated pleural effusion, the patient was scheduled for right anterolateral thoracotomy, which showed a thin-walled cyst (10 cm in diameter) attached to parietal and diaphragm, with the stem of cavity originated from the right lower lobe after the cyst cavity was dissociated...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Diffuse cystic lung diseases (DCLDs) are a heterogeneous group of disorders with varying pathophysiologic mechanisms that are characterized by the presence of air-filled lung cysts. These cysts are prone to rupture, leading to the development of recurrent spontaneous pneumothoraces. In this article, we review the epidemiology, clinical features, and management DCLD-associated spontaneous pneumothorax, with a focus on lymphangioleiomyomatosis, Birt-Hogg-Dubé syndrome, and pulmonary Langerhans cell histiocytosis...

Bovine tuberculosis (TB) is a zoonotic disease caused by Mycobacterium bovis. Despite intensive TB control campaigns, there are sporadic outbreaks of bovine TB in regions declared TB-free. It is unclear how M. bovis is able to survive in the environment for long periods of time. We hypothesized that Free-living amoebae (FLA), as ubiquitous inhabitants of soil and water, may act as long-term reservoirs of M. bovis in the environment. In our model, M. bovis would be taken up by amoebal trophozoites, which are the actively feeding, replicating and mobile form of FLA...

BACKGROUND: Birt-Hogg-Dubé syndrome (BHD) is an autosomal dominant disorder, the main manifestations of which are fibrofolliculomas, renal tumors, pulmonary cysts and recurrent pneumothorax. The known causative gene for BHD syndrome is the folliculin (FLCN) gene on chromosome 17p11.2. Studies of the FLCN mutation for BHD syndrome are less prevalent in Chinese populations than in Caucasian populations. Our study aims to investigate the genotype spectrum in a group of Chinese patients with BHD...

AIMS: The association between lung cancer and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is well-known, however the significance of this association is poorly understood. Bronchiolar honeycomb cysts have been proposed as possible precursors for development of carcinoma, but limited evidence of this hypothesis is available. METHODS AND RESULTS: Thirty-three lung carcinomas arising in patients with IPF have been analyzed using a panel of immunohistochemical markers. The antibodies included pneumocyte markers (TTF1, Napsin-A, SPA1), the goblet cell marker MUC5AC, markers of basal/squamous cell differentiation (CK5/6, ΔN-p63) and markers related to enteric differentiation (CDX2, MUC2, CK20, villin)...

PURPOSE: Birt-Hogg-Dubé Syndrome (BHDS) is a rare autosomal dominant condition that can predispose patients to numerous cutaneous fibrofolliculomas and other cutaneous lesions, pulmonary cysts with spontaneous pneumothorax, and multifocal renal tumors and cancer. The genetic mutations responsible for BHDS are related to tumor suppression and the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) pathway. Previous reports of the ocular findings in BHDS include eyelid fibrofolliculomas, "flecked chorioretinopathy," and one report of choroidal melanoma...

INTRODUCTION: Birt-Hogg-Dubé syndrome (BHDS) is a rare autosomal dominant genodermatosis characterized by cutaneous fibrofolliculomas and/or trichodiscomas, lung cysts, spontaneous pneumothorax and renal tumors. However, its clinical expression is highly variable. This syndrome is caused by germline mutations in the folliculin gene (FLCN) on chromosome 17p11.2. MAIN OBSERVATIONS: Two men, 60 and 39-year-old, presented with a several year history of asymptomatic whitish papules scattered over the face and neck...

Diffuse cystic lung diseases are characterized by cysts in more than one lung lobe, the cysts originating from various mechanisms, including the expansion of the distal airspaces due to airway obstruction, necrosis of the airway walls, and parenchymal destruction. The progression of these diseases is variable. One essential tool in the evaluation of these diseases is HRCT, because it improves the characterization of pulmonary cysts (including their distribution, size, and length) and the evaluation of the regularity of the cyst wall, as well as the identification of associated pulmonary and extrapulmonary lesions...

Brain and eye hydatid cysts are early symptomatic, as opposed to those developing in other organs, including lungs, where they remain asymptomatic through adolescence, even to adulthood, due to their slow growth. Hence, discovering that patients have lung hydatid cyst occurs, frequently, during random chest imaging. Up to thirty percent of pulmonary echinococcal cysts may rupture spontaneously, after chest or abdominal trauma. The main lung hydatidosis complaints, such as dyspnea and chest pain, are caused by the reduction of the functional area of the lung, expectoration of the tapeworm cystoides into the bronchial tree, or by compression of surrounding structures...

Echinococcosis is a zoonotic disease caused by Echinococcus granulosus sensu lato. The liver and lungs are the most commonly sites of infections, but involvements of other organs were also observed. Recently, the coinfection of pulmonary hydatid cyst with aspergilloma has been reported in the literature. Herein, we report a successful treatment of coinfection of cystic echinoccosis with aspergilloma due to Aspergillus flavus in a 34-year-old female. In vitro antifungal susceptibility tests revealed that the MIC values for antifungals employed in this case were posaconazole (0...

The aim of the present review was to summarize and discuss previous findings concerning renal manifestations of primary mitochondrial disorders (MIDs). A literature review was performed using frequently used databases. The study identified that primary MIDs frequently present as mitochondrial multiorgan disorder syndrome (MIMODS) at onset or in the later course of the MID. Occasionally, the kidneys are affected in MIDs. Renal manifestations of MIDs include renal insufficiency, nephrolithiasis, nephrotic syndrome, renal cysts, renal tubular acidosis, Bartter-like syndrome, Fanconi syndrome, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, tubulointerstitial nephritis, nephrocalcinosis, and benign or malign neoplasms...

Autosomal-dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is the most prevalent cystic kidney disease, with approximately half of the patients reaching end-stage renal disease by the age of 60. Tolvaptan prevents renal cyst growth by inhibiting intracellular cyclic AMP and is recommended for patients with ADPKD. Reports of thrombotic complications with tolvaptan have been limited. We report a case of a 60-year-old man who developed thromboembolisms during tolvaptan treatment for ADPKD. The patient started tolvaptan in July 2014...

The following report describes the case of a 43-year-old male smoker that was referred to the rapid access lung clinic with haemoptysis, chest pain, and axillary lymphadenopathy-a clinical picture that raised concern for a possible underlying malignancy. Preliminary investigations revealed elevated D-dimers, low-volume haemoptysis, and a normal chest X-ray, which lowered the index of suspicion. However, computed tomography (CT) pulmonary angiogram identified a right hilar mass, several parenchymal cysts, and a large mediastinal mass...
