We report an extremely rare case of a right ventricular outflow tract mass identified to be an intracardiac MC in a 4-month-old male infant. Pathology revealed an EWS-KLF15 translocation. Treatment included gross total resection and intensive chemotherapy. Recurrent cardiac mass with brain metastasis was seen 16 months after primary diagnosis. We describe the rarity of intracardiac MC in pediatric patients and the challenges encountered in the multimodal management of this patient.
Conclusions: It is possible that, other than demographic, clinical-associated, or therapy-associated factors play an important role in the process of decision-making regarding DNR. We feel that sincere communication between parents, their child (when appropriate) and medical and psychosocial staff may have a more crucial role when such decisions have to be made.
Cavernous hemangioma arising from the gallbladder is extremely rare. Here, we report a cavernous hemangioma of the gallbladder masquerading as a carcinoma. A 75-year-old man was referred to our institution for a follow-up study after gastrectomy. Abdominal computed tomography revealed that the gallbladder was filled with a low-density mass with calcification of the wall. The patient underwent extended cholecystectomy. Histologically, the tumor consisted of vascular endothelial cellular elements and hematomas. The postoperative course was uneventful without complications. Presently, only 7 cases of cavernous hemangioma of t...

This study was to assess the relationship between preoperative MPV and survival outcomes of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) following liver transplantation (LT).MethodsThe demographic and clinical characteristics of 304 HCC patients following LT were retrieved from an LT database. All the patients were divided into the normal and lower MPV groups according to the median MPV. The factors were first analyzed using a Kaplan–Meier survival analysis, then the factors with P
ConclusionsALLPS improved the CRLM outcomes; ALPPS is feasible in patients with PHC after failure of portal vein embolization; ALPPS may be an option for HCC patients with major vascular invasion and thrombosis. The simplified and less-invasive ALPPS needs to be simplified.

CONCLUSION: This case indicates that nivolumab-induced uveitis might be more severe in eyes with a damaged iris, and that vitrectomy should be effective for vitreous opacity. A cytokine analysis of the ocular fluid indicated that multiple types of cell might be related to the inflammation process. PMID: 31012778 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
This is a case of a 75-year-old man who was diagnosed with anaplastic pancreatic ductal carcinoma (spindle cell type). His image findings showed pancreatic head cysts and pancreatic head, body, and tail tumors respectively. EUS-FNA was performed to the pancreatic head and pancreatic body tumors, and the same high atypical type cells suspected of cancer were obtained from either specimen, and finally total pancreatectomy was performed. On the specimen, there were 4 lesions in the pancreas; histology showed that the same anaplastic pancreatic ductal carcinoma (spindle cell type) was obtained from the pancreatic head cyst and...
ConclusionsIn view of the data from in vitro and in vivo studies, the exploitation of hUCMSCs in new therapeutic strategies should be safe compared to hAMSCs under malignant conditions. Moreover, this is the first report to systematically elucidate the possible molecular mechanisms involved in UCMSC- and AMSC-affected tumor growth and metastasis.
