We designed new evaluation method using histogram of regional standardized uptake value (SUV) of every pixels of box shape volume of interest (VOI) on 18F-FDG PET. We evaluate lung and liver of normal volunteers and also the lesions of 4 cases of patients with non Hodgikin's malignant lymphoma using this method. SUV of pixels of pretreatment lesions shows log-normal distribution, whereas SUV of lung and liver show normal shape distribution. The next day of chemotherapy, 2 cases of them showed changes of distribution pattern from long-normal to normal with decrease of component of higher SUV values...

Airway hyperreactivity (AHR) was studied with an astograph for 34 sequential hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) patients before and after HSCT. The percentage of Dmin positive patients was 25.0% before HSCT and 25.0-57.1% after HSCT, while all normal subjects were negative for Dmin. The mean Dmin of post HSCT patients was 22.7 u in days 501-1000 and 19.3 u after 1001 days, which was significantly lower than the 45.2 u of normal controls. The patients were divided into two groups according to the treatment before HSCT, strongly treated (S, acute leukemia and non-Hodgikin lymphoma) and weakly treated (W, chronic myelogenous leukemia and aplastic anemia) patients...

Malignant lymphoma of the central nervous system in a thirteen-year-old boy with immotile cilia syndrome (ICS) is reported. He had frequent upper respiratory tract infections, chronic sinusitis and pneumonia during in childhood. Bronchiectasis was demonstrated by bronchography. The diagnosis of ICS was confirmed by the lack of dynein arms of cila in the nasal mucosa with electronmicroscopy. In 1987, he complained of headache and vomiting and a space occupied mass lesion in the left frontoparietal lobe was found by head CT scan, which was subtotally resected...
