Outcome and safety of targeted liver biopsies for indeterminate lesions in patients with chronic liver disease: A single centre experience

ConclusionsUltrasound ‐guided liver biopsies of indeterminate lesions in patients at high risk of HCC yield important histopathological findings, important for management options including the provision of curative treatments and assisting future novel therapies such as immunotherapy and targeted therapies. The low com plication rates confirm its safety and the procedure should not be avoided for fear of complications.

We present a case of synchronous bilateral renal cell carcinoma and prostate carcinoma in a 62 year old man. In a fluorine-18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (18F-FDG PET) scan, the left renal mass showed intense 18F-FDG uptake with maximum standardized uptake volume (SUVmax) of 8.12, while uptake in the right renal mass was minimal with SUVmax of 2.99. Fluorine-18-FDG uptake in the prostate gland lesion was moderate with SUVmax of 4.19. Histopathologically, both renal tumors were clear cell renal cell carcinoma with International Society of Urological Pathology (ISUP) Grade 2 and 3 for the right and left k...

We presented a rare case of primary pleural squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) on fluorine-18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (18F-FDG PET/CT). It manifested as multiple pleural nodules with moderate 18F-FDG uptake and massive pleural effusion on PET/CT. The pathology result supported the primary squamous cell carcinoma. Our case highlighted the SCC should be included as differential diagnosis of the multiple pleural lesions and other differential diagnosis consisted of mesothelioma, solitary fibrous tumor, metastases.

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...

Authors: Sachpekidis C, Exadaktylou P, Katsampoukas D, Moralidis E, Arsos G Abstract Peritoneal lymphomatosis, defined as the disseminated intraperitoneal lymphomatous infiltration, is a rare presentation usually of non-Hodgkin lymphoma and is associated with aggressive histological subtypes of the malignancy. Recently, the term "peritoneal super scan" has been introduced in positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) in a patient with Burkitt lymphoma to describe hypermetabolic lymphomatous involvement of the entire peritoneum, leading to suppression of tracer uptake in organs with otherwis...
