A pulmonary resection of metastatic colorectal carcinoma is an accepted method of treatment. The purpose of this study was to confirm the role of resections for pulmonary metastases from colorectal carcinoma, and to determine the clinical course, outcome, and prognostic factors after surgery. A retrospective analysis was conducted of the records of all(More)
Pancreatic cancer patients with para-aortic lymph node metastasis have a poor prognosis and patients living longer than 3 years are rare. We had a patient with pancreatic cancer who survived for more than 10 years after removal of the para-aortic lymph node metastasis. A 57-year-old woman was diagnosed with pancreatic head cancer and underwent a(More)
We report a rare case of pulmonary intestinal-type adenocarcinoma in a 69-year-old man. A computed tomographic scan of the chest and positron emission tomography revealed a well-defined nodule measuring 2.5 cmx2.5 cm in the right lower lobe with high (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose accumulation. Furthermore, sputum cytology tested positive for adenocarcinoma.(More)
PURPOSE Micropapillary adenocarcinoma is becoming increasingly recognized as a prognostically important histological subtype of carcinoma in various organs. This report presents the clinicopathological findings of lung adenocarcinomas with micropapillary components. METHODS A total of 15 patients with micropapillary components were selected between April(More)
This report presents a case of primary malignant melanoma of the lung with rapid progression in a 68-year-old man. During a regular checkup, a chest roentgenogram revealed an abnormal shadow in the left lower lung field. Computed tomography (CT) of the chest revealed an ill-defined tumor shadow measuring 4 x 3 cm in the left upper lobe. A CT-guided lung(More)
Pleomorphic carcinoma (PC) is a rare malignancy of the lung. We present 3 cases that were resected. Case 1: The patient was a 75-year-old asymptomatic man whose chest roentgenogram showed a cavity at the right apex. A right upper lobectomy was performed, and the pathological stage was IB (pT2N0M0). After 3 courses of adjuvant chemotherapy, he is alive(More)
In patients with clinical stage IA non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), we investigated whether the maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) by the tumor correlated with lymph node metastasis, intratumoral lymphatic and vascular invasion of tumor cells, and pleural invasion. From April 2005 to November 2008, 58 patients(More)
We report a case of desmoid tumor of the chest wall in a 79-year-old woman. The patient was referred to our hospital for management of a chest wall mass. Four months previously, the patient noted a small lump in the right lateral chest wall that had rapidly increased in size. Magnetic resonance imaging of the chest revealed a soft tissue tumor in the right(More)
We describe a rare case of cavernous angioma in the dura mater and discuss published MRI findings on similar cases. The patient was a 78-year-old woman who was referred to Shimane Prefectural Central Hospital with complaints of headaches. We were subsequently able to identify a tumor at the convexity in the dura mater. The tumor showed a high intensity on(More)
This report describes a case of metastasis to the lung 21 years after the initial treatment of primary osteosarcoma in a 79-year-old man. The osteosarcoma was in the right femur and had resulted in amputation. The patient presented with painless hematuria, and a workup revealed a squamous cell carcinoma of the urinary bladder with invasion into the(More)
