OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence, clinical signs and radiological features of breast lymphoma. METHODS This is a retrospective review of 36 patients with breast lymphoma (22 primary and 14 secondary). 35 patients were female and 1 was male; their median age was 65 years (range 24-88 years). In all patients, the(More)
Although skeletal muscles comprise nearly 50% of the total human body mass and are well vascularised, metastases in the musculature are rare. The reported prevalence of skeletal muscle metastases from post-mortem studies of patients with cancer is inconstant and ranges from 0.03 to 17.5%. Of 5,170 patients with metastasised cancer examined and treated at(More)
BACKGROUND Intravascular embolization of device fragments is a rare but potentially serious complication. METHOD A systematic search of the PubMed and MEDLINE databases for all articles pertaining to central catheter related embolization published in English between 1985 and 2007 was made. RESULTS A total of 215 cases of intravenous catheter(More)
BACKGROUND Breast plasmacytoma (BP) is extremely rare. The published data on this manifestation include predominantly case reports and do not provide any statistical information. PURPOSE To identify clinical signs and radiological features of BP. MATERIAL AND METHODS Five patients with BP were retrospectively identified in the pathological and(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES Most secondary intramammary tumors occur as metastatic involvement from the contralateral breast. Breast metastases (BM) from nonmammary malignancies are very rare. The aims of this study were to estimate retrospectively the prevalence of BM from nonmammary malignancies and to describe their radiologic appearance. MATERIALS AND(More)
PURPOSE To describe the mammographical and ultrasound features of IM, and to compare radiological patterns of IM arising from different malignancies. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective search in the statistical database of our institution from January 2000 to December 2009 revealed 51 cases of intramammary metastases from solid malignancies.(More)
OBJECTIVES To analyze possible associations between functional simultaneous (18)F-FDG-PET/MR imaging parameters and histopathological parameters in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). MATERIAL AND METHODS 11 patients (2 female, 9 male; mean age 56.0years) with biopsy-proven primary HNSCC underwent simultaneous (18)F-FDG-PET/MRI with a dedicated(More)
PURPOSE Primary extranodal lymphomas of the orbit and sinonasal region are rare and occur almost only as Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). The purpose of this study was to determine the frequency of different subtypes of NHL in these regions and to describe their radiological features. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between January 2005 and January 2010, 567 patients(More)
BACKGROUND Thyroid metastases (TM) are uncommon. Dependent on study design, the reported frequency of TM is in the range of 0.1-6% in different analyses. While clinical and histopathological features of TM were well described in the literature, radiological publications consist predominantly of isolated case reports or small series. PURPOSE To estimate(More)
BACKGROUND Breast leukemia is extremely rare. The published data on this manifestation include predominantly case reports and do not provide any statistical information. PURPOSE To identify clinical signs and radiological features of breast leukemia. MATERIAL AND METHODS PubMed and Medline databases between 1980 and 2010 were screened using 'breast(More)
