Natural progression and tumor growth predictive factors of retroperitoneal schwannoma.

CONCLUSIONS: The growth rates of retroperitoneal schwannomas were various. Additionally, MRI findings and clinical findings that could predict the future growth of retroperitoneal schwannoma could not be clarified. Therefore, careful follow-up is necessary for this tumor, especially for lesions with bone erosion. PMID: 31564688 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

She did not meet the international classification criteria of dermatomyositis/polymyositis, as we observed no muscle weakness, grasping pain or electromyography abnormality in her limbs, and anti-ARS antibody was negative. Cervical magnetic resonance imaging and a muscle biopsy of the trapezius muscle revealed my...

Authors: Schilling EM, Weinrich M, Heller T, Koball S, Neumann A Abstract Our patient exhibited a large tumor on his right upper arm where his former dialysis access site had been. X-ray, Doppler ultrasound, and magnetic resonance imaging scan could not fully reveal the nature of that tumor. Eventually, a surgical approach showed a giant aneurysm of the inflowing brachial artery to a partially obliterated arteriovenous fistula. This case highlights the importance of ongoing care for patients with arteriovenous shunts. Even arteriovenous fistulas, that are obliterated or no longer in use, can, especially when immuno...

We present a case of Moyamoya disease in an infant who presented with neurological symptoms including convulsions and motor deficits. He was misdiagnosed two times and finally investigated in a tertiary hospital with brain computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging showing affected vessels with typical pattern of Moyamoya diseases in the brain. He underwent surgical intervention and scheduled for follow up.

CONCLUSION: Post-infectious inflammatory myopathy should be suspected in case of severe and persistent myalgia associated with rhabdomyolysis following an IMD, after exclusion of pyomyositis especially. A short course of corticosteroids seems to be effective. PMID: 31735371 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Feng Y, Liu H, Ding Y, Zhang Y, Liao C, Jin Y, Ai C Abstract PURPOSE: To prospectively investigate changes in quantitative parameters of dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI) and the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) of diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) in patients with cervical cancer before and after neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT). METHODS: Thirty-eight patients with cervical cancer underwent DCE-MRI and DWI 1 week before and 4 weeks after NACT. The patients were classified into 2 groups: significant reaction (sCR) group and the non-sCR group. DCE-MRI parameters and ADC va...

ConclusionMore often than not, pituitary cysts/cyst-like structures can be found incidentally in children using modern MRI techniques. Follow-up is not typically required if there are no associated symptoms or excessive size.
