Papillary carcinoma of thyroid (PTC) is the most common neoplasm of the thyroid gland that usually invades lymphatics rather than blood vessels. Hematogenous metastasis of PTC is rare, and distant metastasis to the liver is even rarer. Selective internal radiation therapy with 90Y microspheres is a well-recognized technique in the treatment of liver metastases. Herein, we present a case of PTC with radioactive iodine-negative hepatic metastasis detected by 18F-FDG PET/CT and treated with selective internal radiation therapy.
Authors: Zhang HG, Yang P, Jiang T, Zhang JY, Jin XJ, Hu Y, Sun J, Du SS, Zeng ZC Abstract Purpose: To investigate whether lymphocyte nadir induced by radiation is associated with survival and explore its underlying risk factors in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Methods: Total lymphocyte counts were collected from 184 HCC patients treated by radiotherapy (RT) with complete follow-up. Associations between gross tumor volumes (GTVs) and radiation-associated parameters with lymphocyte nadir were evaluated by Pearson/Spearman correlation analysis and multiple linear regression. Kaplan-Meier analysis,...
ConclusionSBRT ( ±TACE) in highly pretreated HCC is effective and associated with excellent LC and low toxicity. SBRT may be used as definitive or bridging treatment prior to OLT. Patients with multifocal lesions have significantly decreased 1‑ and 2‑year FFHF and OS.
k J Abstract Selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT) is a therapeutic option for primary and metastatic liver tumors. Microspheres containing Yttrium 90, a beta-emitting radionuclide, are administered into the hepatic artery allowing selective internal radiation of a liver tumor. SIRT-related complications may appear due to migration of the radiation microspheres to organs distant from the tumor site. In order to prevent these complications, unintended non target embolization of Yttrium microspheres has to be avoided. However, data from external-beam radiation therapy (EBRT) suggests that the stomach/small bow...
Conclusion: This was a rare and challenging case of sarcomatoid renal cell carcinoma metastasis to the small intestine with loss of some renal cell carcinoma markers, reinforcing the aggressive nature of this entity and the importance of correlating findings with the prior history for reaching correct diagnosis.
CONCLUSIONS: At the AJCC stage I, the survival after EBRT might be comparable to that after surgery for HCC ≤3cm, but the survival after EBRT was inferior to that after surgery for HCC>3cm. PMID: 31646782 [PubMed - in process]

We reported a case of a 66-year-old man after surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy for colon cancer. Two months after these therapies, the patient complained of nonproductive cough for 1 week. Diagnoses: 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG)-positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) scanning revealed increased FDG uptake along the thickened bronchovascular bundles, in bilaterally scattered ground-glass opacities and in mediastinal lymphadenopathy. The transbronchial biopsy and pathological study confirmed the diagnosis of PLC. Interventions: Antineoplastic treatment (cetuximab) were administered afte...
