An anomalous systemic artery originating from the descending thoracic aorta supplying the normal basal segments of the lower lobe of the left lung without sequestration is a rare congenital anomaly. The published surgical treatments include lobectomy, segmentectomy, anastomosis, and ligation. In addition, endovascular treatment with coils has been reported.(More)
Hamartomas are the most common benign tumors of the lung. It is most common peripherally in the parenchyma as solitary nodule or endobronchial lesion. Endobronchial form may cause obstruction of airway, atelectasis and recurrent pneumonia. Endobronchial hamartomas may be treated by surgical intervention or bronchoscopic excision (with rigid or flexible(More)
BACKGROUND Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) is a diagnostic method for tuberculosis (TB). This study was conducted to determine the efficiency of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing for detecting TB lymphadenitis in samples obtained by EBUS-TBNA. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 93 consecutive patients with(More)
Allergic granulomatosis and angiitis, also known as Churg-Strauss syndrome (CSS), is an uncommon vasculitis of unknown etiology. We report a 21-year-old male patient with fatigue, dry cough, and progressive dyspnea. He had no history of asthma or eosinophilia. Thorax computed tomography showed bullous/cystic areas with thin walls in varying sizes (5–15 mm).(More)
BACKGROUND Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) is highly accurate in diagnosing mediastinal lymphadenopathies of lung cancer and benign disorders. However, the utility of EBUS-TBNA in the diagnosis of mediastinal lymphomas is unclear. The aim of this study was to determine the diagnostic value of EBUS-TBNA in(More)
Intracardiac thrombus and pulmonary embolism is a very rare manifestation of Behçet's disease. A twenty-years-old man was admitted to hospital due to dyspnea, haemoptysis, fever and partially loss of vision. On dynamic thorax computed tomography (CT), there was aneurysmatic dilatation and thrombus in bilateral pulmonary artery segments and also findings of(More)
OBJECTIVES To examine the diagnostic utility of pleural adenosine deaminase (PADA), pleural lactate dehydrogenase (PLDH), and several other biochemical tests in bronchogenic carcinoma and malignant mesothelioma, and to compare biochemical characteristics of their fluid with nonmalignant pleural effusions. DESIGN AND METHODS This study consisted of 226(More)
Fibrosarcoma is a mesenchymal tumor constituted by malignant fibroblasts. Myxofibrosarcoma is one of the fibrosarcoma variants that mostly develops from dermal/subcutaneous tissues. The most common locations are the limbs, with rare occurrences in the chest, head, and neck. Since, to best of our knowledge, there is no such report in English literature, we(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of a new parameter, pleural adenosine deaminase (PADA), for separating transudative pleural effusion from exudative pleural effusion, and to compare the results with other tests (albumin gradient and protein gradient). METHODS From November 2001 to January 2003, 359 consecutive patients(More)
