What Causes Mediastinal Masses?
Discussion The mediastinum resides in the chest and is the space bounded by the thoracic inlet cephalically, diaphragm caudally, sternum anteriorly and transverse process of the spine posteriorly, and mediastinal pleura and lungs laterally. It is divided into various compartments: Superior mediastinum Bounded by the thoracic inlet cephalically and a horizontal plane passing from the manubriosternal joint to the junction of T4/T5 vertebrae horizontally. Structures include: esophagus, trachea, parts of great vessels and first branches, great veins and initial branches, thymus, vagus, phrenic and other nerves, thoracic duct...

A diagnosis you can ’t afford to miss
4 out of 5 stars Antibody-Mediated Encephalitis. Dalmau J, Graus F. N Engl J Med 2018 Mar 1;378:840-851. Reference TPR has posted before about anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis, a must-know, can’t-miss, humbling diagnosis that is distressingly easy to overlook. Although it is not a toxicologic condition, all toxicologists and emergency physicians should be thoroughly familiar with its presentation and clinical course. Let me explain why. NMDAR encephalitis often begins with behavioral changes, mood swings, and memory deficits in relatively young patients. According to this somewhat technical but excellent review, the ...

UCLA scientists use stem cells to study genetics of germ cell tumors
UCLA researchers have made new inroads into understanding germ cell tumors, a diverse and rare group of cancers that begin in germ cells — the cells that develop into sperm and eggs. The researchers developed a protocol to recreate germ cell tumor cells from stem cells and used the new model to study the genetics of the cancer.Their findings could point the way toward new drugs to treat germ cell tumors, which account for around 3 percent of all cases of childhood and adolescent cancer.The study, published in Stem Cell Research, was led by Amander Clark, a UCLA professor of molecular cell and developmental biology and a ...

Solving the mystery of a shapeshifting neck tumor
Jaedin, 10 years old, holds the control for a remote-controlled race car, Christmas 2017. Amanda Brown couldn’t shake an uneasy intuition that something just seemed “off” throughout her second pregnancy. During a scheduled caesarian section at her local hospital in North Carolina, her instinct proved to be true. “I had given birth to my first son by C-section so I knew what to expect,” Amanda says. “But this time around, as the surgeons totally stalled in the middle of the delivery, I thought to myself, ‘it doesn’t take this long to pull a baby out.’” When her son Jaedin was finally delivered, Amanda an...

Scientists illuminate a method for safer stem cell treatments
(American Chemical Society) Because they can develop, or differentiate, into basically any tissue type, pluripotent stem cells could be the key to a host of regeneration therapies. But those PSCs in a culture dish that remain undifferentiated could form teratomas, a kind of tumor, if transplanted into patients. This week in ACS Central Science, researchers report a new light-based technology that could remove this risk. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)
