A 59-year-old man was referred to the Kochi Medical School Hospital due to left shoulder pain. Physical examination revealed a nodular, painful mass lesion in the subcutaneous tissue of the right chest wall, with a diameter of ~2 cm. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy revealed a large ulcerated tumor in the lower gastric body near the lesser curvature, and biopsy specimens of the gastric and humeral lesions revealed poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma. Abdominal computed tomography revealed multiple low-density lesions in the liver and a well-defined, 2...

Spinal schwannomas are benign intradural extramedullary tumors arising from spinal nerve root sheath. They are usually solid or heterogeneously solid. Totally cystic schwannomas are rare entities. Herein, we report a 60-year-old male presenting with backache radiating along the chest wall and weakness of both lower limbs. He had spastic paraparesis. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a cystic mass in the thoracic region. At operation, the cystic mass was seen to be attached to D4 dorsal rootlets. It was excised in toto and histopathology confirmed it to be a schwannoma...

INTRODUCTION/BACKGROUND: Treatment for HER2-postitive breast cancer often includes trastuzumab, breast/chest wall (CW) radiation (RT), and anthracyclines, all of which have cardiac toxicity. We aimed to evaluate the relationship between heart dose and acute left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) changes in patients who received concurrent trastuzumab and breast/CW RT with and without anthracycline use. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed all nonmetastatic breast cancer patients from 2008 to 2015 who received concurrent trastuzumab and breast/CW RT...

Methionine dependence is due to the overuse of methionine for aberrant transmethylation reactions in cancer. Methionine dependence may be the only general metabolic defect in cancer. In order to exploit methionine dependence for therapy, our laboratory previously cloned L-methionine α-deamino-γ-mercaptomethane lyase [EC 4.4.1.11]). The cloned methioninase, termed recombinant methioninase, or rMETase, has been tested in mouse models of human cancer cell lines. Ewing's sarcoma is recalcitrant disease even though development of multimodal therapy has improved patients'outcome...

Locoregional recurrence (LRR) after adequate treatment of primary breast cancer poses a therapeutic challenge. Advances in the management of breast cancer have led to significant improvements in survival. With this advantage, it is observed that the incidence of LRR has relatively decreased. Systemic involvement should be ruled out in patients presenting with locoregionally recurrent disease, as isolated LRR requires a treatment with curative intent. Salvage mastectomy following ipsilateral breast tumor recurrence is a time-tested treatment option and widely accepted...

PURPOSE: Postmastectomy chest wall radiation therapy has historically used bolus to increase dose at the skin surface. Despite the theoretical benefits of bolus, the clinical implications of locoregional tumor control, cosmesis, and the incidence of radiodermatitis are less well characterized. We hypothesized that treatment in the presence or absence of bolus results in equivalent chest wall recurrence rates, but its presence results in more severe acute dermatologic toxicity. METHODS AND MATERIALS: Locally advanced breast cancer patients undergoing chest wall radiation therapy were retrospectively reviewed from 2005 to 2015 (n = 106; 53 with bolus, 53 without)...

A 62 year-old male with long-standing smoking history presented with hemoptysis. Plain chest x-ray showed abnormal findings proximate to the right pulmonary hilum. Bronchoscopy revealed a fragile exophytic tumor of the right wall of the lower third of the trachea, infiltrating the right main bronchus (75% stenosis) and the right upper lobar bronchus (near total occlusion). Contrast-enhanced chest CT demonstrated a 7.2x4.9 cm tumor contiguous to the above-mentioned structures, mediastinal lymph node pathology, and a vessel coursing inferiorly to the left of the aortic arch and anterior to the left hilum...

Primary benign tumors of trachea are rare. Of them, tracheal leiomyoma, constitutes only 1% of all benign lower respiratory tract tumors. Here, we present a case of tracheal leiomyoma who has been receiving high doses of inhaled corticosteroids and bronchodilators for a year with a misdiagnosis of asthma. As the symptoms did not resolve with an overtreatment, she has been undergone radiologic study to find a possible alternative diagnosis. The chest roentgenogram revealed an opacity in the upper mediastinum...

REVIEW
Mathew Thomas, K Robert Shen
Primary osseous tumors of the chest wall are uncommon neoplasms. They occur in a wide variety of pathologic forms, most of which can be distinguished by unique radiologic appearance. Management of these tumors depends on the diagnosis and stage. Adequate surgical resection is critical in achieving the best outcomes for most of these tumors. Chemotherapy and radiation may have an adjuvant role. Surgeons considering resection of any chest wall tumor should have a sound knowledge of the principles of resection and reconstruction...

Radiation to the chest wall is common before resection of tumors. Osteoradionecrosis can occur after radiation treatment. Radical resection and reconstruction can be lifesaving. Soft tissue coverage using myocutaneous or omental flaps is determined by the quality of soft tissue available and the status of the vascular pedicle supplying available myocutaneous flaps. Radiation-induced sarcomas of the chest wall occur most commonly after radiation therapy for breast cancer. Although angiosarcomas are the most common radiation-induced sarcomas, osteosarcoma, myosarcomas, rhabdomyosarcoma, and undifferentiated sarcomas also occur...

REVIEW
Robert E Merritt
The surgical resection of primary and secondary tumors involving the chest wall often requires reconstruction with prosthetic and soft tissues, such as muscle flaps. There are situations when a soft tissue reconstruction of the chest wall is preferable. Prosthetic material can become infected and require reoperation for removal of the infected material. Rigid prosthetic materials can result in chest wall pain and deformity. Muscle is the soft tissue of choice for coverage of full-thickness chest wall defects with or without prosthetic material...

REVIEW
Anthony Cipriano, William Burfeind
Primary chest wall tumors are rare and represent a challenging clinical entity. Preoperative work-up includes a thorough history, radiographic imaging, and a biopsy approach that does not make a future definitive resection more difficult. Treatment decisions are based on tumor histology, stage, local aggressiveness, and responsiveness to chemotherapy and radiation. Wide excision is the foundation of treatment of most malignant primary chest wall tumors. The role of radiation therapy in the neoadjuvant or adjuvant setting is to reduce local recurrence...
