BACKGROUND: Acantholytic squamous cell carcinoma (ASQCC), histologically characterized by intercellular bridge loosening, is recognized as a rare variant of squamous cell carcinoma (SQCC). ASQCC may demonstrate a worse prognosis than conventional SQCC. Pulmonary ASQCC is particularly rare; its biological behavior and prognostic data have not been reported. CASE PRESENTATION: We report the clinical and autopsy findings of a 71-year-old Japanese man with pulmonary ASQCC...

A 40-year-old man with a diagnosis of lung adenocarcinoma (cT4N3M1c, stage IVB) experienced worsening of lymphangitic carcinomatosis in the right lung and right pleural effusion after receiving 1 cycle of first-line chemotherapy consisting of cisplatin and pemetrexed. Bevacizumab was thus added from the second cycle of the cisplatin-pemetrexed regimen, leading to a marked improvement in pulmonary lymphangitic carcinomatosis and a decrease in pleural effusion. Subsequently, maintenance therapy consisting of pemetrexed and bevacizumab was continued, successfully leading to long-term progression-free survival...

Pulmonary lymphangitic carcinomatosis (PLC) is defined as infiltration of the lymphatic vessels and perilymphatic connective tissue with tumor cells, which is secondary to malignancy. Therefore, it rarely appears as an initial finding preceding a diagnosis of malignancy. A 30-year-old male patient was hospitalized in our clinic with a pre-diagnosis of interstitial lung disease owing to the complaints of dry cough, progressive dyspnea, and acute respiratory insufficiency. He was diagnosed with signet ring cell carcinoma, which is a histologic subtype of adenocarcinoma, via gastroscopy, and lung involvement was consistent with PLC...

Lymphangitic carcinomatosis refers to the rare process of diffuse malignant invasion of the pulmonary lymphatics. We describe the first reported case of lymphangitic carcinomatosis visualized with gallium-68 prostate-specific membrane antigen positron emission tomography and its clinical significance in a 53-year-old man with prostate carcinoma. This case highlights the ability of gallium-68 prostate-specific membrane antigen positron emission tomography for prostate carcinoma characterization and the importance of always considering atypical patterns of metastatic disease...

Pulmonary Lymphangitic Carcinomatosis (PLC) occurs in about 6-8% of patients with lung metastasis and may rarely develop in the course of gastric cancer representing a complication due to diffuse metastasis in the lymphatics of the lungs. A 29-year-old female, admitted with difficulty in breathing and productive cough for one week, was initially evaluated for respiratory tract infection. During evaluation of associated anaemia an upper gastrointestinal endoscopy showed large ulcerative growth in the lesser curvature of the stomach suggestive of carcinoma...

In breast cancer, aggressive tumor biology and the corresponding poor prognosis is associated with amplification or overexpression of the human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2). Trastuzumab has significantly changed the natural history of HER2-positive breast cancer. However, resistance to trastuzumab remains a substantial clinical problem. Ado-trastuzumab emtansine (T-DM1), an antibody-drug conjugate, has demonstrated impressive results in second- or later-line treatment of HER2-positive breast cancer...

Prostate adenocarcinoma, the most common cancer in males in the United States, is often diagnosed in the nonmetastatic setting. The prognosis with metastatic prostate cancer is less favorable, though treatment options are typically effective in controlling the disease for an extended period. Hormonal therapy is the backbone to the management of prostate cancer metastases, decreasing the level of the prostate-specific antigen and reducing the patient's cancer-related symptoms. Pulmonary metastases, a relatively uncommon initial site of disease involvement, are expected to respond in a similar fashion to hormonal therapy as other organ or bone involvement...

AIM: To assess the prevalence and prognostic significance of additional intrathoracic findings (AIFs) in patients with cancer and pulmonary embolism (PE). AIFs were considered alterations other than the characteristic ones intrinsic to PE or changes in cardiovascular morphology. METHODS: Subjects have been taken from a Spanish national multidisciplinary and multicenter study of PE and cancer who were treated between 2004 and 2015. The endpoint was the appearance of serious complications or death within 15 days...

We herein report two cases of malignant pleural mesothelioma with marked lymphangiosis. The patients included a 68-year-old man and a 67-year-old man who both had a history of exposure to asbestos. Computed tomography (CT) on admission showed pleural effusion with pleural thickening. In both cases, a histopathological examination of the pleura confirmed the diagnosis of epithelioid malignant mesothelioma. They received chemotherapy, but the treatment was only palliative. The chest CT assessments during admission revealed marked pleural effusion and mediastinal lymphadenopathy...

Esophageal metastasis from colorectal carcinoma is uncommon, and diagnosis of esophageal metastasis is difficult. We report a case of a 54-year-old woman with postoperative recurrence of rectal cancer metastasizing to the esophagus. She underwent rectectomy and adjuvant chemotherapy with fluorouracil, leucovorin plus oxaliplatin for stage IIIB rectal cancer. Three years later, she presented with dysphagia and cough. Computed tomography showed thickening of the esophagus wall, enlargement of the lymph nodes in the mediastinum and abdomen, and ground-glass opacities in the right lung...

The purpose of this study was to clarify the recognizable computed tomography (CT) features of small cell lung carcinoma (SCLC).Contrast enhanced CT scans were reviewed retrospectively for mass location, mediastinal extension, and other concomitant findings in 142 patients with pathologically proven SCLC. SCLC was classified into hilar mass only (type I), hilar mass with ipsilateral mediastinal extension (type II), hilar mass with bilateral mediastinal extension (type III), and peripheral mass (type IV). When mediastinal lymphadenopathy (m-LAP) was indistinguishable from a hilar mass, we defined it as a mediastinal conglomerate mass (m-CM)...

Benign metastasising leiomyoma (BML) is a rare benign disease associated with uterine leiomyoma and history of uterine surgery. It most frequently occurs in premenopausal woman, with a pulmonary localisation, and consisting of multiple nodules. We present an uncommon case of a 69-year-old woman with a single BML of an inguinal lymph node. CT scans of thorax and abdomen excluded other metastasis localisation. The patient was cured with surgical excision of the mass. Lymph node involvement has been reported incidentally in BML literature...

BACKGROUND: Bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) has gained acceptance for diagnosis of Interstitial lung disease (ILD). The advent of high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) has reduced the clinical utility of BAL. This work has utilized the recommendations of the American Thoracic Society (ATS) to optimize BAL and the findings have been associated with clinical examination and HRCT to precisely narrow down the cause of ILD. MATERIALS AND METHODS: BAL was performed on ILD suspects at the target site chosen based on HRCT...

Diffuse pulmonary lymphangiomatosis (DPL) is a rare lymphatic disorder characterized by uncontrolled proliferation of lymphatic vessels. Histologically benign, however, it can lead to death because of its progression. In this paper, we would like to present an unusual case of diffuse pulmonary lymphangiomatosis involving a 28-year-old young female who was suffered chest pain and polypnea for one year, and also a lot of chylous effusion in left chest. Lymphoma and lymphangitic metastasis was the primary diagnosis in other hospitals...

BACKGROUND: Pulmonary metastasectomy has come to be recognized as an effective treatment for selected patients with some malignancies. On the other hand, the role of pulmonary metastasectomy for gastric cancer is still unknown. Metastasectomy is rarely indicated in cases of pulmonary metastasis from gastric cancer, because in most cases, the metastasis occurs in the form of lymphangitic carcinomatosis and the lesions are numerous. The purpose of this study was to determine the surgical outcomes and prognostic factors for survival after pulmonary metastasectomy...

A diagnosis of 'chronic cough' (CC) requires the exclusion of sinister pulmonary pathology, including infection and malignancy. We present a patient with a 3 month history of CC who had an extensive workup including a normal high resolution computed tomography of the chest (HRCT) 6 weeks prior to consultation at our center. He subsequently developed constitutional symptoms including weight loss and loss of appetite 5 weeks after initial consultation. A repeat HRCT chest and a subsequent whole body PET scan found that he had developed extensive pulmonary lymphangitic carcinomatosis (PLC) from a colon primary...
