Adult T-type lymphoblastic lymphoma presenting as hypercalcemic crisis and aplastic anemia: a case report
ConclusionsSevere hypercalcemia and aplastic anemia are potential paraneoplastic syndromes of adult T-type lymphoblastic lymphoma, with fatal short-term outcome.
CONCLUSIONS: CNB and SSNB have similar effects on pain relief, complications and functional recovery in patients receiving TKA. The optimal analgesic regimen for patients after TKA needs further identification. PMID: 31808660 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionLCH mostly occurs in children. In head and neck it affects principally the mastoid part of the temporal bone. Treatments include surgery, chemotherapy, and irradiation. Most patients enjoy good prognoses. LCH accompanied by TCS is rare and increases the difficulty of diagnosis; molecular data aid in TCS identification.
We present the case of a 4-year-old child who was admitted owing to the complaint of recurrent pancreatitis and had not previously been diagnosed with having metabolic disease. During inpatient treatment for acute pancreatitis, convulsions occurred with concomitant hyperammonemia, metabolic acidosis, coagulopathy, and shock 1 week after the administration of total parenteral nutrition. He was diagnosed to have PA after a metabolic work-up and confirmed to have novel mutation by molecular genetic analysis. Because children with PA may have acute pancreatitis, although rare, vomiting and abdominal pain should raise a suspici...
Conclusions The sincalide and EP cholecystagogues did not lead to significantly different HBS findings for similar patient populations or postcholecystectomy outcomes.
Conclusions 177Lu-PSMA-617 radionuclide therapy is a safe and effective approach to the treatment of mCRPC patients.
We report the case of a 52-year-old woman with follicular lymphoma localized in the left inguinal region without any extranodal involvement and achieving a complete response after radiotherapy. After a 3-year disease-free interval, muscular recurrence at the left arm was shown by contrast-enhanced 18F-FDG PET/CT. Contrast-enhanced 18F-FDG PET/CT performed after immunochemotherapy documented complete disease remission. Lymphoid tissue is usually not present in the skeletal muscle, making muscular lymphomatous involvement quite unusual; muscular relapse of a primarily nodal lymphoma is even rarer.
We present 4 cases of pathology-confirmed BIA-ALCL to illustrate varying presentations and imaging features of this disease process. Breast implant–associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma presents most commonly approximately 10 years after implantation of textured silicone or saline breast implants. Patients may present with breast enlargement, peri-implant effusion, a palpable breast or axillary mass, lymphadenopathy, breast skin erythema, or pain. Diagnosis of BIA-ALCL may be confirmed by sampling of peri-implant fluid or biopsy of peri-implant masses or regional lymph nodes.
We describe herein the early relapse detection of a hormone-sensitive metastatic upfront PCa treated with docetaxel on 68Ga-PSMA-11 PET/CT before biochemical progression. PSMA PET/CT should be considered to monitor PCa response to chemotherapy to detect early relapse, regardless of prostate-specific antigen levels, increasing the chances of finding low-volume oligoprogressive disease.
We describe herein the incidental detection of a giant hypometabolic fecaloma on PET/CT with 18F-FDG during the initial staging of a patient with osteosarcoma using opioids for pain management.
Some patients with splenic angiosarcoma initially manifest thrombocytopenia owing to hypersplenism or tumor-related bone marrow fibrosis. The diagnosis of bone marrow metastasis in patients with splenic angiosarcoma is challenging, as the presentation mimics idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura or primary myelofibrosis. Our case showed diffuse FDG uptake in the vertebral bodies, sacroiliac bone, humerus, femur, and clavicles. It was pathologically diagnosed as bone marrow metastasis of splenic angiosarcoma. We believe that the heterogeneous FDG accumulation in the bone marrow, although nonspecific, can be useful for the dia...
