An 80-year-old man presented with a right side lung tumor. The tumor was not abutting the bronchus or chest wall; thus, endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) and CT-guided biopsy were considered to be technically difficult. We therefore attempted endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA). Although the nodule was not abutting the esophagus on CT, an irregularly shaped hypoechoic lesion was visualized on EUS. EUS-FNA was successfully performed. The tumor was diagnosed as squamous cell carcinoma...

Patient with Pancoast Tumor usually present in advanced stage of the disease which requires chemotherapy and radiotherapy as options of treatment. Histologic confirmation is a key for further treatment of these patients. Normally in bronchoscopy the lesion can't be visualised and in result making biopsy difficult to perform. Transthoracic biopsy through computed tomography poses anatomic difficulties and not always the pulmonary lesion can be reached. We report a case of pancoast tumor in a 68 year old male who presented with left arm pain and upper lobe increased density mass in chest x ray...

INTRODUCTION: Normal tissue complications following chest wall radiotherapy (RT) are inevitable, and the long-term data on hypofractionation are still limited. To quantify the late effects of hypofractionated RT on cardiac, pulmonary, brachial plexus, and regional lymphatics and their correlation with patient, tumor, and treatment characteristics is the main objective of this study. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two hundred and sixteen breast cancer patients following mastectomy were treated with hypofractionated schedules either 40 Gy in 15 fractions or 42...

Inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) is rare, but it is the most aggressive subtype of breast cancer. IBC has a unique presentation of diffuse tumor cell clusters called tumor emboli in the dermis of the chest wall that block lymph vessels causing a painful, erythematous, and edematous breast. Lack of effective therapeutic treatments has caused mortality rates of this cancer to reach 20%-30% in case of women with stage III-IV disease. Plasmonic nanoparticles, via photothermal ablation, are emerging as lead candidates in next-generation cancer treatment for site-specific cell death...

Aggressive fibromatosis (AF) or desmoid tumors is an aggressive fibroblastic proliferation which is locally invasive but can not metastasize. The treatment of AF is challenging. Surgery was the main treatment modality for AF in the past, other strategies including radiotherapy, systemic therapies and wait-and-see policy. The use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and targeted therapies has demonstrated good results. In the case report, a 39-year-old man presented with progressive chest wall pain...

Radiation therapy is a well-established palliative treatment for symptomatic metastases from breast cancer. This is also true of symptomatic primary breast tumors in patients with metastatic disease or in those who are medically inoperable. Further, local progression in the chest wall can severely impair quality of life, with local pain, bleeding, and significant impact on one's self-image. Here, we present the case of a patient who showed an exceptional response to a palliative hypofractionated radiation course to her bleeding, fungating breast primary...

CASE REPORT: We herein report a case of local recurrence of breast cancer with squamous metaplasia and obvious intratumoral and intertumoral heterogeneity. A 39-year-old female patient was diagnosed with T3N2M0 stage IIIB right breast cancer and underwent right total mastectomy and axillar lymph node dissection. At four years after surgery, she became aware of chest wall pain and diagnostic imaging revealed recurrence in the lung, right thoracic wall and sternum. The recurrent lesions remained stable for 18 months with endocrine therapy...

BACKGROUND: Congenital rib abnormalities are found in approximately 2% of the general population. Usually, they occur in isolation, when they are rarely symptomatic, but they can also associate with other malformations. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We reviewed imaging examinations performed over a period of two years (2014-2015), enabling us to identify isolated rib abnormalities in six adult patients. RESULTS: The case series consisted in three cases with bilateral cervical ribs and one case each with bifid rib, costal fusion and rib pseudarthrosis...

Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is a disease with limited therapeutic options, the management of which is still controversial. Diagnosis is usually made by thoracoscopy, which allows multiple biopsies with histological subtyping and is indicated for staging purposes in surgical candidates. The recommended and recently updated classification for clinical use is the TNM staging system established by the International Mesothelioma Interest Group and the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer, which is based mainly on surgical and pathological variables, as well as on cross-sectional imaging...

INTRODUCTION: Resection of manubrium or body of the sternum is associated with a necessity of chest wall reconstruction. Large sternal defects require the use of different types of implants to ensure acceptable esthetic effect for the patient and chest stabilization. AIM: The purpose of this case report is to present a novel method of reconstruction of manubrium removed due to renal cancer metastasis to the sternum. CASE: We present the case of a patient, who had underwent right nephrectomy for clear cell kidney cancer, diagnosed with a metastatic tumor in the sternum resulting in destruction of manubrium...

Radiation-associated angiosarcomas (RAS) of the breast are vascular tumors arising in a previous radiation field for primary breast cancer. They occur rarely but confer a high probability of local recurrence (LR) and poor prognosis. A wide range of treatment strategies exists due to limited evidence, and although resection is the definitive treatment, LR rates remain high. It has been suggested hyperfractionated accelerated radiotherapy (HART) has the potential to prevent LR. The sarcoma group at the Juravinski Cancer Centre (JCC) reports our experience of nine patients treated with radical resection and adjuvant HART...

Ectopic thymic carcinoma is extremely rare. We present a case of a 73-year-old male patient with ectopic right parietal pleural thymic carcinoma and performed a literature review. Computed tomography (CT) of the chest demonstrated a sharp-edged soft tissue mass with intense enhancement measuring 47 mm × 29 mm with a broader base adjacent to the right axillary chest wall at the level of the 5th rib. There was no hilar or mediastinal lymphadenopathy or evidence of a mediastinal tumor or pleural nodules. A totally extra-pleural tumor resection and partial right lung resection was performed...

BACKGROUND: Extrahepatic metastatic spread of hepatocellular carcinoma is present at the time of diagnosis in 5-15% of hepatocellular carcinoma patients. The most common site of metastastic spread is the lungs, bones, lymph nodes. Isolated chest wall localization is extremely rare. CASE: We report a 58-year-old patient with large, synchronous chest wall hepatocellular carcinoma metastasis with solitary primary hepatocellular carcinoma. He underwent a radical, surgical en bloc metastasectomy and subsequent anatomic liver resection...

Hemangiomas of the rib are extremely rare benign neoplasm. Here we present a case in a 47-year-old female, detected by chest X-ray and underwent a surgical resection. Histologically, the tumor was composed of a homogeneous conglomerate, irregular, thin walled and dilated blood vessels containing red blood cells, supported by fibrous stroma and intermingled to regular bone trabeculae. The postoperative courses were uneventful, and there was no recurrence during 64 months follow-up.

Fibromatosis of the breast is a rare benign disease compromising <0.2% of all primary breast tumors. Although the chest wall is a common location, occurrences of implant-associated fibromatosis of the breast are extremely rare; only 33 cases have been reported. We present a case of a 42-year-old female who underwent breast augmentation with silicone breast implants, and 2 years later developed an aggressive implant-associated fibromatosis of the breast and chest wall. On imaging studies, the tumor mimicked breast carcinoma, and despite chemotherapy, the fibromatosis rapidly enlarged and was locally invasive requiring wide surgical excision...

Chest wall hemangiomas are rare tumors that may originate within the soft tissue or from the ribs. Intramuscular hemangioma is infrequent, representing less than 1 % of all hemangiomas, and the localization in the chest wall is even less frequent. They are typically cutaneous in location, large, and poorly circumscribed and can be locally destructive. We present a case of a 34-year-old lady presented with firm lump 3 × 3 cm in left upper and inner quadrant of left breast well defined borders, non-pulsatile and restricted mobility...

A novel breathing phantom was designed for being used in conventional and ion-beam radiotherapy as well as for medical imaging. Accurate dose delivery and patient safety are aimed to be verified for four-dimensional (4D) treatment techniques compensating for breathing-induced tumor motion. The phantom includes anthropomorphic components representing an average human thorax. It consists of real tissue equivalent materials to fulfill the requirements for dosimetric experiments and imaging purposes. The different parts of the torso (lungs, chest wall, and ribs) and the tumor can move independently...

The term "anisometric cell lipoma" (ACL) has been proposed recently by Evans for a lipoma variant characterized by striking variation in size and shape of adipocytes but little or no cytological atypia. One patient with multiple ACL had a history of retinoblastoma. The current study analyzed six patients with ACL (4 males and two females aged 34 to 87years; median, 58); all seen in consultation. Five patients presented with solitary and one with multiple subcutaneous masses measuring 5 to 9cm (median, 7.5cm)...
