RATIONALE: The morbidity and mortality of small cell lung cancer (SCLC), an uncommon malignancy of the lung, remain high. Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) creates heat to destroy cancer cells and is usually used to treat non-SCLC, but not SCLC. PATIENT CONCERNS: An 85-year-old male presented with a 2-month history of a productive cough with white phlegm and a 2-day history of hemoptysis. Chest computed tomography revealed a mass in the right lower lobe. DIAGNOSES: An excision biopsy of the mass showed SCLC...

BACKGROUND: The objective of heartworm treatment is to improve the clinical condition of the patient and to eliminate pre-cardiac, juvenile, and adult worm stages with minimal complications. Pulmonary thromboembolisms are an inevitable consequence of worm death and can result in severe pulmonary reactions and even death of the patient. To minimize these reactions, various treatment protocols involving melarsomine, the only adulticidal drug approved by the US Food and Drug Administrations (FDA), in conjunction with macrocyclic lactone heartworm preventives and glucocorticosteroids have been advocated...

RATIONALE: Pulmonary epithelioid hemangioendothelioma (P-EHE) is a rare tumor, with no established standard treatment. Overexpression of vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2 (VEGFR-2) has been reported in some P-EHE patients. Apatinib, a new small molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitor that specifically targets VEGFR-2, has therapeutic benefits in some advanced tumors. However, its efficacy in P-EHE cases has not been reported. PATIENT CONCERNS: Herein, we presented a 44-year-old man with recurrent hemoptysis for approximately 9 years...

In this report, we describe a male patient who presented with recurrent life-threatening hemoptysis due to the sequential formation of multiple pulmonary aneurysms. Both pulmonary artery coil embolization and right lower lobectomy were performed, with limited success. The patient experienced extensive bilateral femoral DVT extending into the inferior vena cava, with massive hemoptysis, fulfilling the diagnosis of Hughes-Stovin syndrome. A final diagnosis of Behçet disease was made following extensive investigation, and the patient responded well to prednisone 20 mg orally and azathioprine 100 mg orally...

Hemoptysis may occur in patients with pulmonary venous obstruction and prominent decompressing vessels in the airways adjacent to the affected pulmonary veins. The options for treatment of hemoptysis are limited, particularly when efforts to alleviate pulmonary venous obstruction have failed. Here we describe a patient with hemoptysis associated with stenosis of the central left upper pulmonary vein and occlusion of the central left lower pulmonary vein. The left upper pulmonary vein was dilated with balloon catheters and a vascular plug was placed in the left lower pulmonary artery...

Rasmussen's aneurysm, a very rare complication of active pulmonary tuberculosis (TB), is a pulmonary artery aneurysm adjacent to or within a tuberculous cavity. It may lead to rupture and life threatening massive hemoptysis, an uncommon but challenging medico-surgical emergency. This complication warrants attention in view of the resurgence of tuberculosis and increasing occurrence of multi-drug resistant TB, especially in resource-poor, high-TB burden countries like India. We present a case of an elderly man who presented to the emergency room with low-grade fever, cough and hemoptysis...

The purpose of this article is to report a case of hemoptysis occurring in combination with secondary spontaneous pneumothorax following chemical pleurodesis by talc. A Japanese male with cancer of renal pelvis was found with the left pneumothorax and multiple lung metastases. A computed-tomography scan revealed severe emphysema throughout the lungs. Talc pleurodesis was employed to arrest air leakage. The patient developed hemoptysis 45 minutes after talc injection into the thorax. This is the first report of hemoptysis following talc pleurodesis...

Cases: Case 1: A 63-year-old woman was referred for coughing blood. Although cardiorespiratory dynamics were stabilized by artificial respiration under sedation, severely poor ventilation developed from asphyxia associated with massive respiratory tract hemorrhage. One-lung ventilation was temporarily secured by endotracheal tube insertion into the left main bronchus just prior to cardiopulmonary arrest.Case 2: A 72-year-old man was referred for massive hemoptysis after coughing, then intubated and placed on a respirator...

Endobronchial brachytherapy (EBB) is an effective treatment for endobronchial tumors. However, bronchial toxicity caused by over-irradiation remains problematic. To decrease bronchial toxicity, we developed a source-centralizing applicator for EBB. The purpose of the present study was to assess the efficacy and safety of EBB with varying reference dose points according to the bronchial diameter, using a source-centralizing applicator. We reviewed 15 patients with endobronchial carcinoma who were treated with curative intent using a combination of external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) and high-dose-rate EBB between 2005 and 2014...

Pulmonary artery sarcoma (PAS) is a highly malignant tumor that originates in the pulmonary artery. This disease has a poor prognosis. Early diagnosis followed by radical surgical resection constitutes the only chance of survival for patients. However, owing to the rare and nonspecific clinical manifesta-tions and imaging findings, PAS is frequently misdiagnosed as various pulmonary thromboembolic diseases. We report the case of a 49-year-old woman who presented to our emergency department for dyspnea, hemoptysis, cough, and asthenia...

BACKGROUND: Balloon pulmonary angioplasty (BPA) is an alternative therapy for patients with chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension who are ineligible for pulmonary endarterectomy-the standard therapy. Currently, most reported results of BPA are from relatively small cohorts treated at single centers. The present study evaluated the safety and efficacy of BPA for chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension based on a multicenter registry. METHODS AND RESULTS: A total of 308 patients (62 men and 246 women; mean age, 61 years) underwent 1408 procedures at 7 institutions in Japan...

Bronchopulmonary sequestration is a rare anomaly of the lung which is characterized by the presence of a mass of lung tissue which has no connection with the normal bronchopulmonary tree. Sequestration is of two types - intralobar and extralobar, of which intralobar is the more common one. Patients typically present with recurrent hemoptysis, which at times can be massive or with recurrent respiratory tract infections. This case is being presented to highlight the radiological as well as the intraoperative appearance of this rare anomaly...
