[Diseases of connective tissue in IgG4-associated autoimmune diseases].
Abstract The IgG4-associated diseases of connective tissue are caused by allergen-mediated autoimmune processes. The retroperitoneum, mesentery and mediastinum as well as other less common localizations, such as the neck, orbit and periarticular connective tissue can be affected. Inflammatory fibrosis is initially dominated by a lymphocytic and plasma cell-rich infiltrate and later by cell-poor storiform fibrosis. Stenosis and occlusion of vessels, ureters and intestines can cause severe complications. Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can be implemented in the diagnostic algorithm...

[Hepatopancreaticobiliary diseases in IgG4-associated autoimmune diseases].
CONCLUSION: IgG4-related autoimmune diseases of the hepatopancreaticobiliary system are a rare group of diseases in which increasing knowledge of the radiological appearance also leads to an increasingly frequency of diagnosis. IgG4-related diseases must be distinguished from non-necrotizing pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer, which is often difficult but has significant therapeutic consequences for the patients.

[Immunological principles of IgG4 related diseases].
Abstract In contrast to the other IgG subclasses, IgG4 does not bind to low affinity Fc receptors or activate the classical complement pathway. In addition, it is unstable and can dissociate into two hemimolecules; therefore, IgG4 most likely has an immunosuppressive role. On the other hand, there a few examples of an immunostimulatory role of IgG4 antibodies; therefore, the function of IgG4 in IgG4 related diseases is not yet entirely clear. The trigger factors of IgG4 related diseases (allergic or autoimmune) are still under debate. The activation of T helper (Th) 2 and regulatory T cells has been shown to be im...

[Tumors of the posterior cranial fossa].
Abstract Various types of brain tumor can occur in the region of the posterior fossa. Brain metastases in adults are the most common malignancies at this localization. Ependymomas, medulloblastomas and pilocytic astrocytomas occur mostly in children and only rarely in adults. Other tumors that occur in the posterior fossa are meningiomas, schwannomas, hemangioblastomas, brain stem gliomas and epidermoid tumors. Due to the fact that the various tumors of the posterior fossa have different treatment approaches and prognoses, an accurate and specific diagnosis is mandatory. This review discusses the imaging aspects b...

Abstract Immunoglobulin G4-associated (IgG4) autoimmune diseases are systemic multiorgan diseases with variable clinical presentation. Principally, all organs can be affected. All IgG4-associated diseases have the same morphological correlate in common, which includes lymphoplasmacellular inflammation with abundant IgG4-positive plasma cells, obliterative phlebitis and storiform fibrosis, each with a variable manifestation. The exact pathogenesis is not yet completely understood; however, as in most cases glucocorticoids induce a prompt clinical response to therapy, this new multisystemic disease must be taken int...

Abstract CLINICAL/METHODICAL ISSUE: Vasculitis is a rare cause of diseases of the central nervous system (CNS). Vasculitis can be divided into primary and secondary forms, of which the vast majority can be manifested in various organ systems, including the CNS. Isolated vasculitis of the CNS is limited to the CNS and clinical neurological symptoms as with the other forms of vasculitis, are headaches, encephalopathy, focal deficits and seizures. A criterion of isolated CNS vasculitis is the clinical and laboratory diagnostic exclusion of other forms of vasculitis and the involvement of other organ systems...

[Prerequisites for a successful lung cancer screening program].
Abstract The American national lung cancer screening trial (NLST) has provided the first confirmation of a reduction in lung cancer mortality by using low-dose multislice computed tomography (MSCT). Preliminary evaluations of smaller European trials could not confirm such a reduction. The final evaluation of the larger Dutch-Belgian NELSON trial and five other European trials are expected within the next 1-2 years. The results of the completed rounds of screening in all these studies indicate that the margin between a positive and a negative benefit-to-harm balance will be narrow. In such a scenario it will b...

ck B Abstract Despite the fact that working with asbestos and placing it on the market have been banned in Germany since 1993 according to the Ordinance on Hazardous Substances, asbestos-related diseases of the lungs and pleura are still the leading cause of death in occupational diseases. The maximum industrial usage of asbestos was reached in former West Germany in the late 1970s and in former East Germany the late 1980s. Occupational diseases, mainly mesotheliomas and lung cancer emerging now are thus caused by asbestos exposure which occurred 30-40 years earlier. It is known that the combination of smokin...

[Lung cancer screening - risk stratification : Who should undergo screening?]
Abstract Lung cancer is one of the leading causes of deaths in Europa and the USA. In approximately 75 % of lung cancer patients, bronchogenic carcinoma is detected at an advanced tumor stage; therefore, therapeutic options which aim at curing the disease in these patients are limited and treatment is mostly palliative. A relatively good prognosis is reserved for the minority of patients where the tumor is detected at an early stage and treatment is potentially curative. For this reason, early diagnosis of lung cancer could save lives. Retrospective analyses of the US national lung screening trial (NLST) sh...

They are caused by different typical pathophysiological processes. Due to the association of a certain pathophysiological cause with a given sign, knowledge and use of these signs can allow the possible differential diagnoses to be narrowed down. If other imaging findings and clinical data are additionally taken into account, the diagnosis can be made with a high degree of confidence in many cases.
