Ewing sarcoma and primitive peripheral neuroectodermal tumor (PNET) are high-grade malignant tumors typically found in children and adolescents. These tumors belong to the family of small round cell tumors and are of neuroectodermal origin. Primary Ewing sarcoma of the kidney is rare and because of that is an infrequent differential diagnosis in urologic(More)
Advances in medical imaging with current cross-section modalities enable non-invasive characterization of adrenal lesions. Computed tomography (CT) provides characterization with its non-contrast and wash-out features. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is helpful in further characterization using chemical shift imaging (CSI) and MR spectroscopy. For(More)
Renal epithelioid angiomyolipoma (EAML) is a perivascular epithelioid cell tumor. Although the overwhelming majority of renal EAMLs are benign, cases of aggressive behavior and malignancy have been reported. Here, we report the case of a 62-year-old woman with a 12.5-cm renal EAML, who underwent resection and developed a 10.5-cm hepatic EAML 15 months after(More)
Immune checkpoint therapies, such as ipilimumab, induce dramatic antitumor responses in a subset of patients with advanced malignancies, but they may also induce inflammatory responses and toxicities termed immune-related adverse events (irAEs). These irAEs are often low grade and manageable, but severe irAEs may lead to prolonged hospitalizations or(More)
Small Cell Carcinoma of the Ovary, Hypercalcemic Type (SCCOHT) is a rare, aggressive malignancy with a poor prognosis. Its features are difficult to differentiate from other ovarian malignancies. In this article, we discuss recent advances in our understanding of this rare malignancy including tumor genetics. We also describe demographic, clinical and(More)
To compare studies with and without oral contrast on performance of multidetector computed tomography (CT) and the order to CT examination turnaround time in cancer patients presenting to the emergency department (ED). To the best of our knowledge, oral contrast utility has not previously been specifically assessed in cancer patients presenting to the(More)
OBJECTIVE Cushing syndrome (CS) is a constellation of clinical signs and symptoms resulting from chronic exposure to excess cortisol, either exogenous or endogenous. Exogenous CS is most commonly caused by administration of glucocorticoids. Endogenous CS is subdivided into two types: adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) dependent and ACTH independent. (More)
Tumours arising from mesenchymal tissue components such as vascular, fibrous and adipose tissue can manifest in the liver. Although histopathology is often necessary for definitive diagnosis, many of these lesions exhibit characteristic imaging features. The radiologist plays an important role in suggesting the diagnosis, which can direct appropriate(More)
Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the cervix is an extremely uncommon entity, with no standard established treatment protocol. A 43-year-old asymptomatic female with a history of dual hit blastic B-cell lymphoma/leukemia in complete remission presented with an incidental cervical mass, which was initially felt to represent a cervical fibroid on computed tomography(More)
Immunotherapies targeting cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated antigen 4 (CTLA-4) and the programmed cell death 1 (PD-1) receptor and its ligand (PD-L1) have showed substantial therapeutic benefit in patients with clinically advanced solid malignancies. However, autoimmune toxicities are common and often significant adverse events with these agents. While rash(More)
