This study was undertaken to find out some clue to detect early relapse of adult acute leukemia which had been in remission. Laboratory data such as LDH, erythrocyte sedimentation, or immunoglobulin level did not show any difference at the time of relapse from the remission period. Complete blood count with reticulocyte count was evaluated every two weeks(More)
Cervical tuberculous lymphadenitis is mainly diagnosed by analyzing tissue samples obtained by fine-needle aspiration (FNA). However, some cases remain diagnostic challenges even after polymerase chain reaction analysis of FNA specimens. To delineate differences between cases that are relatively easy to diagnose and those for which diagnosis is difficult,(More)
We describe an extremely rare case of tracheal stenosis caused by unnoticed microscopic fiber-like foreign bodies. A 66-year-old woman complained of dyspnea with inspiratory stridor. Magnifying electroendoscopy and computed tomography revealed stenosis involving the entire circumference of the tracheal lumen. Tracheotomy and biopsy were performed.(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to delineate the frequency of delayed diagnosis in cases of subacute thyroiditis (SAT) and intervals between onset of clinical symptoms and appearance of abnormal laboratory findings. METHODS We reviewed the medical records of 27 patients (7 men and 20 women) with SAT who visited our hospital between 2007 and(More)
A criterion was established in a previous study to detect the relapse of adult acute leukemia in its early stage, i.e., when lymphocytes in peripheral blood increased over 45% of the leukocytes during the maintenance therapy, bone marrow puncture was immediately performed to examine the leukemic cells. By this criterion the relapse was detected earlier than(More)
