Primary adrenal lymphoma is very rare. It is characterized by a high incidence of bilateral adrenal involvement of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. It can be diagnosed with endocrine evaluation, imaging studies and histopathological examination. We present two cases of primary adrenal lymphoma. One is a 74-year-old female patient with right primary adrenal(More)
Unfused crossed renal ectopia observed 1 in 75,000 autopsies is a rare congenital anomaly. Typically one kidney is located in the proximity of the other kidney, and the ureter of the anatomically anomalous kidney crosses the midline to insert to the bladder in its normal anatomic position. Although renal function is usually not affected, the condition is(More)
OBJECTIVE Clinical data are presented on patients with tumor thrombosis (TT) incidentally detected on FDG PET/CT imaging, as well as determining its prevalence and metabolic characteristics. MATERIALS AND METHODS Out of 12,500 consecutive PET/CT examinations of patients with malignancy, the PET/CT images of 15 patients with TT as an incidental finding(More)
UNLABELLED We present the case of a 40-year-old man who underwent a FDG PET/CT study for restaging of renal cell carcinoma treated with left nephrectomy, for suspected metastasis in lung and retroperitoneal lymph nodes. The patient had a history of left inguinal hernia repair with implantation of mesh prosthesis 5 years ago. PET/CT image revealed linear(More)
Advanced thymic carcinoma (TC) is a very aggressive disease. To date there are no established treatment options for the refractory and recurrent disease and only a few prospective trials have been conducted in patients with TC. Here we present a case of a relapsed TC patient, who, by using combination chemotherapy, showed a positive response to sorafenib(More)
BACKGROUND When combined with adequate tumoricidal doses, accurate target volume delineation remains to be the one of the most important predictive factors for radiotherapy (RT) success in locally advanced or medically inoperable malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) patients. Recently, 18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (PET) has(More)
OBJECTIVE Elastofibroma dorsi (ED) is a rare pseudotumor of the soft tissues that can also show 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose ((18)F-FDG) uptake on positron emission tomography combined with computed tomography (PET/CT) imaging. The aim of this retrospectively study was to describe the metabolic characteristics of ED incidentally detected by (18)F-FDG PET/CT(More)
Simultaneous occurrence of medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) and papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) in a single patient is an unusual event. The incidence, cell origin, histopathology features and prognosis of these two carcinomas are considered completely different. The aim of this retrospective study was to describe clinical, pathologic characteristics and(More)
PURPOSE Advanced imaging methods in early breast cancers are not recommended before surgery. In contrast to the accepted guidelines, some recent studies have shown some benefits with the use of PET/CT in early-stage breast cancer. In this study, we aimed to document the efficacy of PET/CT in detection of distant metastasis as well as other primary cancers.(More)
