PURPOSE Granulomas resulting from the administration of luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone analogues (LH-RH analogues) are thought to be very rare. We report on our clinical experience with injection-site granulomas that result from the administration of LH-RH analogues, and we evaluate the incidence rate of these granulomas. MATERIALS AND METHODS We(More)
Case 1: A 58-year-old man was seen with dull pain over the left flank. The X-ray examination revealed a renal stone in the left kidney. On operation, a globular hard mass was found in the lower portion of the posterior aspect of the kidney from which a biopsy specimen was obtained. A frozen section study showed renal cell carcinoma, and nephrectomy was(More)
The objectives were to: (1) develop a time-resolved fluorescence immunoassay (TRFIA) to measure insulin-like peptide 3 (INSL3) in canine plasma; (2) investigate changes of plasma concentrations of INSL3 and testosterone with age in normal male dogs; and (3) compare hormonal concentrations among cryptorchid, normal, and castrated dogs to evaluate endocrine(More)
Although injection-site granulomas caused by leuprorelin acetate have been reported, there have been no reports of granulomas caused by both leuprorelin acetate and goserelin acetate. An 81-year-old man presented with subcutaneous nodules of the abdominal wall and upper arm, where 11.25 mg of leuprorelin acetate had been injected for the treatment of(More)
Luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LH-RH) analogues have become the main focus of androgen deprivation therapy for prostatic cancer. The occurrence of injection-site granulomas due to the administration of LH-RH analogues has been thought to be a rare reaction. We herein report a rare case presenting injection-site granuloma due to the administration of(More)
Prophylactic antimicrobial therapy for the prevention of infection during total joint arthroplasty or spinal surgery was investigated using cefotiam (CTM) and cefmenoxime (CMX), which are cephems having broad antimicrobial spectrum. Seven patients received 2 g of CTM, and 12 patients 2 g of CMX, by intravenous drip infusion over 15 minutes. Blood, bone(More)
