We report an extremely rare case of primary squamous cell carcinoma of the stomach. A 69-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with a 2-month history of dysphagia and tarry stools. Endoscopic examination revealed a cauliflower-shaped protruding mass along the lesser curvature of the gastric cardia. Biopsy of the lesion revealed squamous cell carcinoma(More)
The authors present the case of a newborn girl with extreme fenestration of the basilar artery. This anomaly was found incidentally during MR imaging study for cleft palate and nasopharyngeal teratoma. Magnetic resonance angiography showed a totally duplicated basilar artery with connections at the proximal and distal ends of the artery, suggesting an(More)
A case of primary liposarcoma of the cervix is described in a 49-year-old woman with a fungating cervical mass which was diagnosed as liposarcoma on the basis of cytologic features and the intracellular lipids. Most of the adipocytes and vacuolated lipoblasts were positive for S- 100 protein. The mass was well circumscribed and limited to the superficial(More)
Malignant struma ovarii with metastasis in an extremely rare form of ovarian carcinoma. We describe two cases of malignant struma ovarii that demonstrated widespread peritoneal metastases. In the second case described here, furthermore, the tumor recurred II years later in the contralateral ovary and omentum, while the primary tumor previously was pure(More)
Congenital aneurysms of the thoracic venous system are rare. In particular, innominate venous aneurysms are extremely rare. We describe a 16-year-old girl whose chest x-ray suggested a mediastinal tumor. Three-dimensional contrast-enhancement magnetic resonance venography showed a giant sacciform aneurysm of the left innominate vein and dilatation of the(More)
Body stalk anomaly is a severe body wall defect, with maldevelopment of the hindgut and the presence of a very rudimentary umbilical cord. A case of prenatally-diagnosed body stalk anomaly is presented along with the discussion of the prenatal diagnosis and its management. Autopsy of the fetus showed abnormalities compatible with the maldevelopment of(More)
We report on case of cervical pregnancy successfully treated by two 5-day courses of etoposide, embryocide with the injection of KCl, the injection of methotrexate into the placenta, and cervical curettage. We evaluated the effects of these treatments by measuring urinary human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) titers and serial hCG beta-carboxy-terminal peptide(More)
We report a case of successful pregnancy in a woman who was initially diagnosed with renal failure in mid-pregnancy. She was started on hemodialysis, and her fluid balance was serially monitored with bioelectrical impedance analysis. Her body weight decreased and bioelectrical impedance values increased, along with resolution of pulmonary edema in the(More)
