Keloid is benign fibroproliferative dermal tumors with unknown etiology. Recently, a genome-wide association study (GWAS) in Japanese population has identified 3 susceptibility loci (rs873549 at 1q41, rs940187 and rs1511412 at 3q22.3, rs8032158 at 15p21.3) for keloid. In order to examine whether these susceptibility loci are associated with keloid in the(More)
The current study presents the case of a patient with multiple pulmonary nodules as observed by computed tomog-raphy. Furthermore, a marginal increase in fluorodeoxyglucose uptake was identified by positron emission tomography. Due to the appearance of multiple small nodules and a history of radical nephrectomy, a hypothetical diagnosis of pulmonary(More)
