INTRODUCTION: Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) is a neurotoxic encephalopathic state associated with reversible cerebral vasogenic edema. Seizures are a common clinical presentation in PRES, however its electroencephalographic and radiologic pattern correlation is limited in this subset of patients. The aim of this study is to analyze the origin of electrographic dysfunction according to the radiologic pattern in patients with PRES and seizures. METHODS: We retrospectively identified 46 cancer patients who developed PRES and seizures at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center between January 2006 and June 2012...

OBJECTIVES: Hepatocellular carcinoma is among the leading causes of cancer death. The Milan criteria are the first and most widely used criteria for selecting patients with hepatocellular carcinoma for a good transplant outcome. Studies have shown that patients with hepatocellular carcinoma outside the Milan criteria have good outcomes if they are successfully downstaged before transplant. We report our experience with locoregional therapy for hepatocellular carcinoma, either for bridging or for downstaging prior to transplant...

Lung cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer death in men and women and treatment outcome continues to lag behind other common cancer types. A subset of lung adenocarcinoma patients exhibit a somatic mutation in EGFR or an ALK rearrangement. In these patients, targeted TKI therapy results in higher response rates, improved PFS and reduced side effects compared with platinum-based chemotherapy. Despite initial activity of the TKIs, ultimately all patients present with disease progression after about a year on TKI therapy due to resistance development...

Treatment with the ALK inhibitor crizotinib has been associated with complex renal cyst formation in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Using patients treated with crizotinib, we aimed to evaluate the incidence of renal cyst formation, to identify risk factors for cyst formation and to provide a radiological description of cyst characteristics. Patients with ALK-positive NSCLC treated with crizotinib were retrospectively identified from an institutional database. Computed tomography (CT) imaging performed prior to and during crizotinib treatment was retrospectively reviewed to assess the size and complexity of pre-existing cysts, new cysts, and enlarging cysts...

The increasing incidence of morbidly adherent placenta (MAP) is placing women at a higher risk of life-threatening massive hemorrhage. The involvement of interventional radiology to manage this complex condition by performing prophylactic iliac artery balloon occlusion has been reported recently. However, the effectiveness and safety of this technique have not been fully determined. Here we report the case of a 25-year-old woman with placenta increta with preemptive bilateral internal iliac artery balloons who had external iliac artery thrombosis detected by computed tomography angiography (CTA) 72 h post cesarean section...
