We report the case of a 61-year old man in whom a deep venous thrombosis was the presenting feature of disseminated lung carcinoma. A few days later, an arterial thrombosis occurred necessitating amputation. Within a few weeks, the lung cancer progressed dramatically and the patient died. While the association between venous thrombosis and cancer is well(More)
BACKGROUND Experimental and clinical findings suggest that low molecular-weight heparins may improve overall survival in patients with cancer. The evidence is still limited and additional studies are needed to confirm these preliminary findings. METHODS Patients with completely resected stage I, II or IIIA (T3N1) histologically confirmed non-small-cell(More)
The authorship attribution literature demonstrates the difficulty to design classifiers that outperform simple strategies such as linear classifiers operating on bag of features representation of documents. To overcome this difficulty we propose to use Bagging techniques that rely on learning classifiers on different random subsets of features, then to(More)
Spiral scanning (BSV) is a newly acquired scanning technique for all or part of the thoracic volume in a single breath-hold. It offers many advantages when compared to conventional CT scanning. The study of the lungs with a single breath-hold avoids the inconvenience of an anatomical discontinuity while acquiring the information. In a population of patients(More)
INTRODUCTION The majority of pleural and peritoneal mesotheliomas are linked to asbestos exposure but, in around 20% of cases, no history of such exposure is found. Periodic disease is associated with recurrent serositis, which could favor the development of mesothelioma. CASE REPORT We report a case of pleural mesothelioma in a 50-year-old Lebanese(More)
A 60 year old male patient was admitted to hospital with pulmonary and cerebral abscesses. A percutaneous lung biopsy under CT scanning showed actinomycosis. After 4 weeks antibiotic therapy with ceftriaxone and metronidazole there was an improvement in the pulmonary lesion but new cerebral lesions appeared. A neurosurgical cerebral biopsy showed evidence(More)
We report a case of a patient of 58 years old who suffered from a left apical opacity occurring in a context of deterioration in general health. Subsequent clinical developments were dominated by the ophthalmic disease and a frontal syndrome. The radiological work-up showed tumoral lesions which had developed from the first rib, from the structures at the(More)
