Chronic eosinophilic leukaemia has not yet been clearly defined, mainly due to the fact that it has not been conclusively shown as a monoclonal disease which should be separated from chronic myelogenous leukaemia, acute myelogenous leukaemia with eosinophilia (AML, FAB M4Eo), and the idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome. We report a patient with a white(More)
Forty splenic infarcts in 23 patients were examined with ultrasound (US). At clinical presentation, splenic infarction was associated with severe left upper quadrant pain (n = 10) or diffuse abdominal pain (n = 4) or was asymptomatic (n = 9). In this retrospective study, predominantly wedge-shaped (n = 17) or round (n = 23), irregularly delineated (n = 33)(More)
Spontaneous rupture of the spleen is an extremely rare complication usually of infectious diseases or disorders of the haematopoietic system and has been described mostly in case reports. The incidence, symptoms, causes, therapy, and prognosis are poorly defined. From July 1985 to January 2000 41 patients with spontaneous splenic rupture were diagnosed by(More)
The sonographic appearances of benign and malignant splenic lesions in 154 patients are illustrated. Sixty-six of the 154 patients had malignant splenic lesions; 55 of these had malignant lymphoma and 11 had splenic metastatic lesions. The lesions were hypoechoic in 64 cases (97%), including all cases of malignant lymphoma, and were hyperechoic in two.(More)
OBJECTIVE Contrast enhanced sonography (CES) of second generation contrast media have shown a spleen-specific uptake of the microbubble contrast agent. The aim of this study was to investigate the ability of a second generation contrast agent to enhance splenic lesions. METHODS From October 2003 to September 2004, 46 consecutive patients with focal(More)
OBJECTIVE Within pulmonary lesions, flow signals of pulmonary arteries can be discriminated from flow signals of central bronchial and peripheral bronchial arteries on color Doppler sonography. Our aim was to evaluate the evidence and frequency of different arterial supplies of pleural-based pulmonary lesions using qualitative and quantitative color Doppler(More)
Preclinical experiments with cisplatin and carboplatin showed radiosensitizing capability for these drugs against non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cell lines and phase II clinical investigations were undertaken in patients with stage IIIA/B NSCLC. In the first trial, cisplatin 20 mg/m2 was infused on the first day of every treatment week, followed in(More)
We report on a 52-year-old patient with acute myeloid leukemia. After induction chemotherapy, routine ultrasound displayed a round focal hyperechoic intrasplenic lesion. Tumor was primarily misdiagnosed for splenic hemangioma. Diagnosis of spontaneous progredient splenic rupture was made by color-coded Doppler sonography, sonographic follow-up examinations(More)
In a clinical phase II trial, radiotherapy and escalating doses of paclitaxel (Taxol; Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, Princeton, NJ) were given concurrently to patients with stage IIIA/B non-small cell lung cancer. Radiotherapy was given in daily doses of 2 Gy, 5 days a week, in weeks 1 to 3 and 6 to 8 for a total dose of 56 Gy. Paclitaxel was given in 3-hour(More)
