Solitary fibrous tumors (SFTs) are rare mesenchymal neoplasms that can be benign or malignant. SFTs have been most often documented in the pleura. Recently, involvement of extrapleural sites such as the abdomen, musculoskeletal soft tissue, upper respiratory tract, mediastinum, and head and neck were reported. Less than 15 cases of SFT of the breast have… (More)
We present a case of spontaneous rupture of the diaphragm, characterized by nonspecific symptoms. The rapid diagnosis and appropriate surgical approach led to a positive resolution of the pathology.
In 2012, open procedures represented 63% of the total number of lobectomies performed in our unit; in 2015, video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) lobectomy numbers increased up to 66% of the total number of lobectomies performed. When carrying out the procedures, we followed the guidelines presented by the International VATS Lobectomy Consensus Group… (More)
We present three patients with bronchial carcinoids, in which a more probed study emphasized the presence of three multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN). Assessment included a total-body computerized tomography, a total-body single-photon emission computerized tomography by 111In-DTPA-D-Phe1 octreotide, and genetic map. Two patients presented an atypical MEN 1… (More)
Management of solitary pulmonary nodule (SPN) and micronodule (SPMN) is still debated. The use of 18F-FDG PET/CT or CT multislice screening for early lung cancer detection, have increased the frequency of displaying indeterminate single lung nodule with diameter between 0.1 cm and 2 cm. The first choice is to wait and do radiological follow-up, since the… (More)

Our study shows the different therapeutic procedures in 64 patients with pleural effusion due to MRSA pneumonia. The thoracostomy tube associated with pleural washing was decisive in 10 simple effusion patients. Video-assisted thoracic surgery allowed a complete resolution of the disease in 22 complex parapneumonic effusion patients. In 20 of 32 patients… (More)
