Hypertrophic Osteoarthropathy in a Patient With Primary Hepatic Angiosarcoma

Primary hepatic angiosarcoma was diagnosed in a 59-year-old woman who presented an arthralgia of limbs and dry cough for 6 weeks. Physical examination revealed digital clubbing. A 99mTc-MDP bone scintigraphy showed diffusely increased uptake along the cortical margins of long bones, suggesting hypertrophic osteoarthropathy.

BOSTON (CBS/AP) — Coronavirus has killed at least 17 people in China, and one person in the United States who had traveled from Wuhan has been diagnosed with the disease.

We report the case of an 83-year-old woman who presented with a scalp lesion, which was initially thought to be caused by scalp trauma but was later found to be an angiosarcoma. She initially refused any therapy for the tumor. She returned several months later with a cough and shortness of breath and was found to have multiple pulmonary cysts. She was treated with paclitaxel, but her tumor did not respond to the therapy and she died 2 months later. DISCUSSION: We discuss the common presentation of cutaneous angiosarcomas and their tendency to metastasize to the lung and present as cystic lesions. We also review the com...

Rationale: Primary pulmonary angiosarcoma is a rare disease. Here, we report the case of primary pulmonary angiosarcoma diagnosed computed tomographic pulmonary angiography (CTPA) and discuss its specific imaging characteristics. Patient concerns: A 46-year-old man was admitted for cough and shortness of breath. Thoracic CTPA images demonstrated a high-attenuation lesion surrounding by a halo sign in upper lobe of right lung, and the dilated vessel was also seen in lower lobe of right lung. The sign of “hillside sign” was observed on CTPA. Diagnoses: It was diagnosed with primary pulmonary angiosarcoma....

Conclusion: Conclusion:It is difficult to diagnose the primary cardiac angiosarcoma in early stage. Chemotherapy and target therapy are very limited in this case. Surgery remains the preferred treatment for patients with primary cardiac angiosarcoma. More efforts should be carried out on the effective diagnosis and multimodality treatment for this malignant disease.

In this report we present three cases of primary pulmonary angiosarcoma with cough, hemoptysis, and progressive dyspnea to contribute to the sparse literature on this disease. A review is made of previous reports of primary pulmonary angiosarcomas, and the clinical characteristics, diagnosed method, treatment options, and prognosis of pulmonary angiosarcoma are also discussed.

We report a case of a 44-year-old man with a localized right renal pelvis mass treated with a right nephroureterectomy. The pathological examination showed a high-grade urothelial carcinoma of the renal pelvis, stage III (pT3aNxM0). A few days later, he developed lower back pain, hematuria, cough with hemoptoic sputum and progressive dyspnea. Radiological explorations showed multiple bilateral lung nodules and a retroperitoneal mass. A CT-guided biopsy of the retroperitoneal mass revealed a high-grade angiosarcoma. A review of the nephrectomy specimen showed a microscopic focus of angiosarcoma in the urothelial carcinoma. ...

Authors: Modrzewska K, Radzikowska E, Szołkowska M, Oniszh K, Szczęsna M, Roszkowski-Śliż K Abstract Primary pulmonary angiosarcoma is an extremely rare disease. Chest computed tomography demonstrates solitary or multifocal lesions, sometimes associated with ground-glass opacities or pleural effusion. Diagnosis is based on histological examination that reveals spindle-shaped epithelioid cells with positive staining for endothelial markers (factor VIII, CD 31, CD34, Fli-1, Ulex europaeus agglutinin 1, vimentin). The prognosis is poor and effective treatment is still being researched. This is a report of a 65-yea...
