Primary Angiitis of the Central Nervous System Clinical Sciences

Conclusions—Adult primary angiitis of the central nervous system is a heterogenous disease, with multiterritorial, distal, and bilateral acute stroke being the most common pattern of parenchymal lesions found on magnetic resonance imaging. Our findings suggest a higher than previously thought prevalence of hemorrhagic transformation and other hemorrhagic manifestations.

Authors: Stević M, Vlajković M, Veličković F, Stanojević G, Nestorović M, Petrović F Abstract A 69 year old patient was admitted to hospital with massive gastrointestinal hemorrhage. The clinical presentation of the patient, except for bleeding, was dominated by the presence of neurofibromatosis type 1 - Von Recklinghausen disease. The patient was referred to multislice computed tomography (CT) angiography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), esophagogastroduodenoscopy and colonoscopy, which were performed without successful detection of the bleeding site. The MRI examination showed the existence of a tumor lo...

We present a case of a 79 year old patient with a medical history of unilateral nerve-sparing radical prostatectomy due to a pT3aN0 (Gleason score 7) prostate carcinoma. Because of slightly elevated prostate specific antigen (PSA) level (0.35ng/dL), a fluorine-18-prostate specific membrane antigen (18F-PSMA)-1007 positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) scan was performed, showing no signs of malignant recurrence. However, a moderately PSMA-avid nodular lesion was observed in the left occipital region with homogeneous contrast enhancement, suggestive for a meningioma, which was confirmed on magnetic resona...

CONCLUSION: Carbon-11-choline PET was found have a greater correlation with Gleason score than DWI and is considered to be more useful to predict a higher score in patients with prostate cancer. Fluorine-18-FDG PET was limited because of low sensitivity. PMID: 32222730 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Štalc M, Jerman N, Trampuš M, Dolenc Novak M, Gužič Salobir B Abstract OBJECTIVE: To investigate the impact of myocardial perfusion scintigraphy results on the decision for invasive coronary angiography in elderly patients (≥75 years) with suspected coronary artery disease hospitalized in a single tertiary medical center. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: In the retrospective study, data of 276 (136 elderly) consecutive hospitalized patients referred to myocardial perfusion imaging were analyzed. The clinical characteristics, myocardial perfusion scintigraphy results, invasive coronary angiograp...
