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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
Static renal scintigraphy with Tc-DMSA is commonly used for the evaluation of renal morphology and function. Extrarenal uptake of Tc-DMSA is a rare finding described previously on sites such as bone metastasis, hemangioma, and splenic amyloidosis. We report a case with Tc-DMSA activity in the lungs.
Breast metastases from an extramammary primary tumor are very rare, particularly in men. In this study, we present a case of a 74-year-old man with isolated breast metastasis from lung adenocarcinoma as an incidental finding on PET/CT and diagnosed concomitantly with the primary tumor. Detection of isolated incidental metastatic lesions in the breast on(More)
We report a case of a 37-year-old woman with severe headache provoked by postural changes who was referred to the nuclear medicine department for radionuclide cisternography to demonstrate suspected cerebrospinal fluid leakage. There was an increased uptake laterally on the left paraspinal region of upper thoracal spine and posteriorly on the upper cervical(More)
BACKGROUND In approximately 8% of cervical carcinoma patients, gastrointestinal tract is involved, most commonly the rectosigmoid portion, because of local extension. Isolated metastases to small bowel are exceedingly rare. CASE REPORT We present a case of a 63-year-old woman with cervical cancer who developed isolated jejunal metastasis 8 months after(More)
