A 65-year-old woman was found to have a mass shadow on chest computed tomography. The patient had been diagnosed as having myelodysplastic syndrome 3 years before admission. She was transferred to our hospital for further examination of the mass in the lower lobe of left lung. The mass was positron emission tomography-positive (SUVmax of 8.6)suggesting a malignant neoplasm. Serum concentrations of carcinoembryonic antigen was elevated to 8.7 ng/ml. Preoperative laboratory studies showed anemia (hemoglobin 6...

As the genomic region containing the Bcl-2-related ovarian killer (BOK) locus is frequently deleted in certain human cancers, BOK is hypothesized to have a tumor suppressor function. In the present study, we analyzed primary non-small-cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) tumors and matched lung tissues from 102 surgically treated patients. We show that BOK protein levels are significantly downregulated in NSCLC tumors as compared to lung tissues (p < 0.001). In particular, we found BOK downregulation in NSCLC tumors of grades two (p = 0...

BACKGROUND: Preoperative assessment of the integrity of major thoracic vessels in central bronchogenic carcinoma is vital for tumor staging and treatment planning. Contrast-enhanced CT is currently the first choice of modality for this purpose in clinical practice with limitations including exposure to ionizing radiation and the use of iodinated contrast material. MRI has been increasingly employed for the staging of lung cancer. More recently, unenhanced magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) which is totally non-invasive and contrast-free has been reported able to show thoracic vessels...

A 64-year-old woman with metastatic clear cell renal carcinoma who had been on nivolumab immunotherapy for 10 months was referred for a FDG PET scan to monitor disease progress. New bilateral mediastinal and hilar FDG-avid lymphadenopathy was noted. Pathology on subsequent mediastinal nodal biopsy showed well-formed epithelioid granulomas with no evidence of malignancy consistent with sarcoidosis. This case illustrates that pulmonary sarcoidosis can be induced by immunotherapy in the treatment of renal cell carcinoma...

BACKGROUND: Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) is a useful and less invasive procedure for the definitive diagnosis of mediastinal and hilar lymph nodes. However, infectious complications can occur after EBUS-TBNA, although they are extremely rare. CASE PRESENTATION: A 66-year-old man with necrotic and swollen lower paratracheal lymph nodes underwent EBUS-TBNA. A mediastinal abscess developed 9 days post-procedure. Surgical drainage and debridement of the abscess were performed along with lymph node biopsy followed by daily washing of the thoracic cavity...

Radiation therapy has emerged as a useful alternative therapy for patients with early-stage, non-resectable lung cancer. In patients whose malignancies are difficult to localize on computed tomography imaging, such therapy becomes difficult. Fiducial markers are frequently placed in peripheral pulmonary lesions to assist radiation therapy. Although placement of markers under linear endobronchial ultrasonography within mediastinal and hilar lymph nodes has been reported, no strategy has been described to assist radiotherapy of purely endobronchial tumors...

BACKGROUND: Although anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) fusion genes are generally identified in lung adenocarcinoma patients, they are relatively rare in patients with squamous cell carcinoma (SqCC). Metastatic ALK-rearranged lung adenocarcinoma patients treated with ALK inhibitors demonstrate higher response rates, improved progression-free survival, and reduced toxicity relative to those treated with conventional chemotherapy regimens. However, the efficacy of treatment with ALK inhibitors in patients with ALK-rearranged lung SqCC remains unknown...

Small cell neuroendocrine carcinoma (SCNEC) of the tongue is very rare. We here present a SCNEC impatient with distant metastasis. A 74-year-old Chinese male went to hospital to treat a tongue tumor, which was founded at a conventional physical examination in Weifang Stomatology Hospital. The check of positron emission tomography-computer tomography (PET-CT) by Weifang people's hospital revealed a tumor in the right root of tongue, and distant metastasis in the right submandibular area, neck, mediastinum, right hilar, abdominal, retroperitoneal multiple lymph nodes, left thyroid, right lower lung, right scapula and bilateral adrenal...

A 63-year male was admitted with abdominal pain, fever and jaundice. The contrast-enhanced computed tomography, magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography and endoscopic retrograde cholangiography showed a mass in the hepatic hilar region with dilation of the intrahepatic bile duct. The left branch of portal vein was also compressed by the mass. The patient was diagnosed as intrahepatic bile duct carcinoma and underwent the left hemihepatectomy together with right hepatic duct jejunum anastomosis (Roux-en-Y)combined with hepatoduodenal ligament lymphadenectomy...

INTRODUCTION: The selection of patients with metastatic clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) who may benefit from targeted tyrosine kinase inhibitors has been a challenge, even more so now with the advent of new therapies. Hilar fat infiltration (HFI) is a validated prognostic factor in nonmetastatic ccRCC (TNM 2009 staging system) but has never been studied in metastatic patients. We aimed to assess its phenotype and prognostic effect in patients with metastatic ccRCC treated with first-line sunitinib...

BACKGROUND: Reports of liver transplantation (LT) in patients with mixed hepatocellular carcinoma/cholangiocarcinoma (HCC/CC) and intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) are modest and have been mostly retrospective after pathological categorization in the setting of presumed HCC. Some studies suggest that patients undergoing LT with small and unifocal ICC or mixed HCC/CC can achieve about 40%-60% 5-year post-transplant survival. The study aimed to report our experience in patients undergoing LT with explant pathology revealing HCC/CC and ICC...

A 56-year-old man was admitted to our hospital in 2007, complaining of an irritating cough. Computed tomography examination demonstrated a mass in the right lung and enlargement of the hilar and mediastinal lymph nodes. Small cell lung cancer was confirmed by pathological examination after fibro-bronchoscope biopsy. The patient was treated with received sequential chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Preventive radiotherapy of the whole brain was performed after complete remission of the lung disease. Seven years after diagnosis, follow-up computed tomography revealed masses in both the liver and kidney...

Following the introduction of the first laparoscopic liver resection, after ∼25 years, a critical reappraisal seems to be warranted. Liver resection represents the first choice for curing early hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) allowing a curative chance also in selected patients with intermediate stage tumors. The criteria for liver resectability by laparoscopy remains the same for open surgery, which is oncological criteria (absence of extrahepatic tumor location; completely resectable R0 resection), anatomic (resectability of involved segment with its own blood surely and biliary drainage; absence of vascular invasion of portal or hepatic veins) and technical (possibility to leave in place a residual volume ≥40%)...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of the study was to determine whether perioperative complications and postoperative outcomes varied with the indication of partial nephrectomy (PN). MATERIALS AND METHODS: We reviewed data of 184 consecutive PN for suspected renal cell carcinoma operated between January 2004 and December 2013. Complications using the Clavien-Dindo classification were compared between surgeries for absolute indications (chronic renal failure, bilateral tumors, or solitary kidney), those for relative indications (comorbid illnesses with the potential to affect renal function) and elective indications (patients without risk factors)...
