BACKGROUND Micropapillary urothelial carcinoma (MPUC) is a rare variant of urothelial carcinoma (UC), which is often advanced at presentation, and carries poor prognosis. Majority of the reported cases of MPUC originate from the urinary bladder. Of over 190 MPUC cases reported in the English literature, 35 cases were of the upper urinary tract. We report a(More)
A 51-year-old woman with a large uterine myoma suffered from acute pulmonary thromboembolism. Venography revealed thrombosis in the right common iliac vein and almost complete obstruction of the left common iliac vein. The ascending lumbar vein showed collateral drainage. Treatment was initiated with continuous intravenous heparin sodium, and a Greenfield(More)
OBJECTIVES Appropriate management of renal trauma is still controversial. Many of the patients have minor injuries and conservative treatment can achieve excellent outcomes without any complications. For major injuries of deep lacerations or ruptures, we have been performing early surgical treatment to salvage the kidney in the selected cases after the(More)
A case of myocardial infarction associated with coronary artery dissection in a thirty-five-year-old woman is reported. An emergent coronary angiogram revealed extensive dissection and thrombosis in the right coronary artery; in addition, severe vasospasm was observed in the left coronary artery on the next day. She was successfully treated with(More)
A 58-year-old woman visited our hospital with nausea and right flank pain. At first abdominal ultrasonography was performed, suggesting a right renal infarction. Computed tomography (CT) study of the abdomen with intravenous contrast was performed to determine the cause of the symptoms. The scan revealed poor enhancement in the lower half of the right(More)
A 70-year-old man underwent right nephrectomy for clear cell renal carcinoma in 1985. After nephrectomy, he was routinely followed up as an outpatient. Solitary chest tumor was detected on pulmonary CT in 2005. A wedge resection of pulmonary tumor was performed under diagnosis of primary lung cancer. The histological feature was not of primary lung cancer,(More)
Visceral larva migrans (VLM) is a disease usually observed in children in which the larvae of animal parasites invade and reside in human tissues for long periods.

The purpose of this study is whether 123I-BMIPP detects a culprit lesion in patients with unstable angina. Twenty-six patients with unstable angina underwent 123I-BMIPP (BMIPP) and 201Tl (Tl) imaging at rest. BMIPP image was compared with Tl imaging. BMIPP imaging revealed defects or low uptake corresponding to myocardial ischemic areas predicted by(More)
BACKGROUND This study was undertaken to investigate the growth rate and clinical outcome of patients with a small renal mass (SRM) after delayed surgery versus immediate surgery. METHODS We reviewed the clinical records of 328 patients with SRM ≦ 4cm at diagnosis, who underwent delayed or immediate surgical intervention from January 2000 to December 2011.(More)
