Pearls in the Wrong Pockets: Idiopathic Scrotal Calcinosis

We present one such case of a 40-year-old married man who underwent PET/CT scan for staging workup of lymphoma and revealed this rare entity incidentally without any other testicular pathology.

Abstract13N-Ammonia (13N-NH3) is widely used positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) radiotracer for the measurement of myocardial blood perfusion; the possible role of13N-NH3 PET or PET/CT in oncological disease is not yet clear. Aim of this review is to evaluate the diagnostic performances of13N-NH3 PET in this field. A comprehensive computer literature search of the PubMed/MEDLINE, Scopus, and Embase databases was conducted including articles up to June 2019. Eighteen articles were finally included in the review. From the analyses of the selected studies, the following main findings could be drawn: (1)...

ConclusionsThis pilot study showed the potential of radiomics to distinguish GIST from other GI tumors, but no potential in predicting c-KIT mutational status and mitotic index of GISTs. Further optimization and validation of the radiomics model is required to incorporate radiomics in the diagnostic routine of GISTs.AcknowledgementM.J. Timbergen and M.P.A.

AbstractFunctional imaging techniques are playing an increasingly important role in the management of pediatric cancer. Technological advances have pushed the development of hybrid imaging techniques, including positron emission tomography (PET)/CT, PET/MR and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT)/CT. Together with an increasing need to identify surrogate biomarkers for response to novel therapies, the use of functional imaging techniques, which had been reserved primarily for lymphoma patients, is now being recognized as standard of care for the management of many other pediatric solid tumors. The purpose of ...

Authors: Maroun CA, Khalifeh I, Tfayli A, Moukarbel RV Abstract Extraosseous Ewing sarcoma is a rare, poorly differentiated round-cell tumour that is part of the Ewing sarcoma family of tumours. Here, we present an extremely rare case of primary extraosseous Ewing sarcoma arising in the larynx, with distant metastases. A 53-year-old man with a history of Hodgkin lymphoma treated 4 years earlier with 8 cycles of chemotherapy presented to our medical centre with a 2-week history of hoarseness. On physical examination, he was found to have a right supraglottic mass together with a fixed right vocal cord. Computed tomo...

Authors: Feuerman H, Snast I, Amitay-Laish I, Bairey O, Barzilai A, Feinmesser M, Mimouni D, Even-Sapir E, Hodak E Abstract BACKGROUND: Whole-body integrated positron emission tomography / contrast-enhanced computed tomography (PET/CT) scan is increasingly used in cutaneous lymphomas. However, the value of PET/CT in the detection of cutaneous lesions in primary cutaneous B-cell lymphoma (PCBCL) has barely been investigated. OBJECTIVES: To investigate the diagnostic accuracy of PET/CT in tracking cutaneous involvement in PCBCL. METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted on 35 consecutive patients diagnosed...
