BodkinAbstract:Situs inversus totalis (SIT) is a rare condition with left-right mirror imaging of both abdominal and thoracic organs. While this configuration is rarely of medical importance, an understanding of this unique anatomy is essential in the setting of surgical intervention. Here we review a case of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) in the setting of SIT. The patient underwent a hand-assisted laparoscopic radical nephrectomy. Pathology revealed pT3aNxM...
OBJECTIVES: The suicide crisis is a relatively short-lived psychiatric emergency, with transient symptoms that ebb and flow around the suicide attempt.Understanding the dynamic processes of symptoms before and after suicide attempt may aid future preventio...
Conclusions: Buparlisib was well tolerated, however efficacy was limited despite selection of PI3K pathway aberrations. Future studies may provide insight into buparlisib efficacy by refining the molecular selection of different tumor types. PMID: 31741715 [PubMed]
ConclusionsOur study showed that machine learning-based multiparametric MR imaging radiomics could accurately distinguish aggressive from non-aggressive PTC preoperatively. This approach may be helpful for informing treatment strategies and prognosis of patients with aggressive PTC.
We report a unique case of breast GCT-ST coincident with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), diagnosed with histological, immunohistochemical, and H3F3A (Histone H3.3) mutation analyses. A 59-year-old woman preoperatively diagnosed with DCIS underwent total mastectomy for a cystic mass. Histology revealed a tumor composed of mononuclear cells interspersed with numerous osteoclast-like giant cells, resembling giant cell tumor of bone (GCT-B), with apocrine DCIS in proximity to the tumor. The mononuclear and giant cells were immunoreactive for CD68 and negative for cytokeratins. Granulomatous diseases, carcinomas with giant cel...
Conclusions: IENFD measurement in postmortem skin is feasible and may be used to study the epidemiology of SFN.
