The aim of this case report is to draw the attention to the occurrence of cystic fibrosis (C.F.) in a Korean infant and thus increase the awareness for the diagnosis. The male infant was presented with a history of recurrent bronchiolitis manifested by severe cough, wheeze and dyspnea from three weeks of age, in whom the diagnosis of C.F. was clinically(More)
CONTEXT Pancreatic metastases are relatively common in advanced lung cancers (both small cell lung carcinoma and non-small cell lung carcinoma), but metastasis-induced acute pancreatitis is very unusual. CASE REPORT A 51-year-old woman with small cell carcinoma of the lung developed acute pancreatitis as the initial manifestation. Abdominal(More)
100 ps time-resolved X-ray solution-scattering capabilities have been developed using multilayer optics at the beamline NW14A, Photon Factory Advanced Ring, KEK. X-ray pulses with an energy bandwidth of DeltaE/E = 1-5% are generated by reflecting X-ray pulses (DeltaE/E = 15%) through multilayer optics, made of W/B(4)C or depth-graded Ru/C on silicon(More)
Esophageal duplication cysts account for a very small percentage of benign esophageal tumors and are infrequently symptomatic. Esophageal duplication cysts result from aberrant alignment of the normal vacuolization process that produce the esophageal lumen in the 5th to 8th week of embryonic life. Complications most often are bleeding into or infection of(More)
To investigate the role of angiogenesis in multiple myeloma (MM), bone marrow biopsy from 75 adults with newly diagnosed, untreated MM were evaluated. Microvessels were scored in at least 3 areas ( x 200 fields) of the highest microvessel density in representative sections of each bone marrow specimen using immunohistochemistry for CD34. Prognostic(More)
Psoriasis is a disorder caused by genetic and immunological factors. Leptin, a peptide hormone secreted predominantly from adipose tissue, regulates energy intake and expenditure, as well as the T-helper response. There have been conflicting reports regarding serum levels of leptin and adiponectin in patients with psoriasis. In the present study, we(More)
We have examined the serum levels of the mutant p53 protein in patients with colorectal cancer preoperatively (n=50), and in patients with adenomatous polyp (n=13). Mutant p53 protein in patients after curative surgical resection of colorectal cancer (n=26, part of the fifty preoperative patients) was also measured. Serum samples were stored frozen at -70(More)
Lymphadenopathy is a relatively uncommon finding of minimally differentiated acute myelogenous leukemia (AML-MO). We experienced a case of AML-MO in a 57-year-old man initially presented with multiple cervical lymphadenopathy. Bone marrow aspiration revealed myeloblasts, which were negative for myeloperoxidase, Sudan black B, Periodic acid-Schiff,(More)
Colorectal cancer with bone metastasis as initial manifestation is a very rare event. We have reported a case of rectal cancer presenting with sternal metastasis. A 30 year-old man was evaluated due to pain in the sternal area with a bulging mass. History and physical examination did not suggest any specific disease. A radionuclide bone scan revealed(More)
