Authors: Masuda S, Koizumi K, Moriya H, Nishino T, Uojima H, Tazawa T, Kimura K, Tasaki J, Ichita C, Sasaki A, Kako M, Hidaka S, Kudo M Abstract We herein describe an 82-year-old patient who presented with proteinuria and systemic edema. He was diagnosed with minimal change disease (MCD) and was found to have stage III pancreatic cancer. He could not undergo surgical resection due to invasion to the celiac artery and he was thus treated with chemotherapy. After a month of chemotherapy, his proteinuria improved to a normal level. After two months of chemotherapy, computed tomography indicated a partial response to t...

CONCLUSION: NICTH can occur as the sole initial presentation of HCC and is often difficult to correct without tumor removal. Clinicians should maintain high clinical suspicion for early recognition of paraneoplastic NICTH in patients at risk for HCC, even those with chronic fasting hypoglycemia in the setting of severe hepatic failure and malnutrition.

To describe the incidence of ovarian dermoid cysts associated with paraneoplastic encephalitis syndrome due to N-Methyl-D-Aspartic acid (NMDA) receptor antibodies among women undergoing surgical resection of dermoid cysts.
Abstract The risk of malignancy in inflammatory myopathy patients is well recognized. However, the incidence of germ cell tumor (GCT) with inflammatory myopathy is low, and most reported cases of GCT also exhibit testicular tumors. Therefore, a case of extragonadal GCT with dermatomyositis (DM) is reported in the current study to better understand this paraneoplastic syndrome. A 53-year-old man presented with bilateral cervical lymph node enlargement. A lymph node biopsy showed embryonal carcinoma, and computed tomography showed multiple lymph node and lung metastases. A period of one month after bleomycin, etopos...
