Angiomyolipoma is a common tumor of the kidney but has rarely been found in the mediastinum. We report a case of angiomyolipoma of the posterior mediastinum in a 62-year-old woman. She experienced exertional dyspnea and intermittent cough at admission. Computed tomography indicated a tumor located at the left paravertebral and upper posterior mediastinum(More)
We experienced a case of primary pulmonary biphasic synovial sarcoma, which was confirmed by immunohistochemistry and molecular testing of SYT-SSX2 fusion transcripts. The patient was a 61-year-old man who presented with a well-defined mass in the left upper lung field on chest radiography. Left upper lobectomy with lymph node dissection was performed.(More)
Inhalation of toxic gases can lead to pneumonitis. It has been known that methane gas intoxication causes loss of consciousness or asphyxia. There is, however, a paucity of information about acute pulmonary toxicity from methane gas inhalation. A 21-year-old man was presented with respiratory distress after an accidental exposure to methane gas for one(More)
Chronic necrotizing pulmonary aspergillosis (CNPA) is an unusual form of pulmonary aspergillosis arising in the setting of mildly immune compromised state or altered local defense system. CNPA rarely shows histological findings mimicking bronchocentric granulomatosis (BCG), which is characterized by peribronchiolar granulomatous destruction. We describe a(More)
The use of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) has increased after 2009 pandemic H1N1 infection, and the ECMO related complications have also increased. Especially mechanical vessel injury due to catheter cannulation seems less frequency than other complications, but there is a risk of hemorrhagic shock requiring caution. We experienced a case of(More)
This study was carried out to investigate the short term toxicity of nine phthalate diesters including di-2 (ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) , di (n-butyl) phthalate (DBP) , di-n-octyl phthalate (DnOP) , diethyl phthalate (DEP) , butylbenzyl phthalate (BBP) , dimethyl phthalate (DMP) , di-isodecyl phthalate (DIDP) , diundecyl phthalate (DUP) , and di-isononyl(More)
