Primary pulmonary B-cell lymphoma diagnosed by kappa-lambda imaging of broncho-alveolar lavage fluid lymphocytes.
TLDR
Primary pulmonary lymphoma may be differentiated from benign lymphoproliferative disorders such as pseudolymphoma and lymphocytic interstitial pneumonia by KLI of BAL-derived lymphocytes.
Hypermethylation of p16(INK4a) and p15(INK4b) genes in non-small cell lung cancer.
TLDR
The results suggest that the detection of aberrant p16(INK4a) methylation in both bronchial washings and plasma may be useful for cancer diagnosis, and that a possible prognostic role of p15(inks4b) methylations in NSCLC is suggested.
[A case of spinal sarcoidosis complaining of chest and back pain as a first manifestation and mimicking syringomyelia on MRI].
TLDR
Clinical and laboratory findings supported the diagnosis of spinal sarcoidosis causing chest and back pain, and a lineal lesion mimicking syringomyelia on T 2-weighted image was found.
[Pulmonary blood flow measurement by acetylene rebreathing method in subjects without respiratory function disturbance].
Simultaneous measurement of pulmonary blood flow by the acetylene rebreathing method and cardiac output by the thermodilution method was performed in subjects without respiratory function disturbance
Hypermethylation of p16INK4a and p15INK4b genes in non-small cell lung cancer
TLDR
The results suggest that the detection of aberrant p16 INK4a methylation in both bronchial washings and plasma may be useful for cancer diagnosis, and that the possible prognostic role of p15 INk4b methylation is suggested in NSCLC.
Rheumatoid arthritis associated with methotrexate-induced pneumonitis: improvement with i.v. cyclophosphamide therapy.
TLDR
It is suggested that CYC treatment may have a beneficial effect on MTX-induced pneumonitis that is resistant to steroid therapy.
Fat embolism syndrome caused by vegetable oil injection.
TLDR
This is the first description of the human response to vegetable oil injection and should aid in the investigation of the side effects of many types of lipids which may be applied to humans for various purposes in the future.
Interstitial pneumonia possibly due to a novel anticancer drug, TS-1: first case report.
TLDR
A case of interstitial pneumonia probably caused by TS-1 is described and it is necessary in the future to clarify which component of this drug is directly related tointerstitial pneumonia.
Malignant pleural mesothelioma produces functional granulocyte-colony stimulating factor.
TLDR
The patient died 6 weeks after disease progression had been noted, and immunohistochemistry using a specific monoclonal antibody against recombinant G-CSF at autopsy demonstrated that the malignant mesothelioma cells actually produced G- CSF.
Hilar and mediastinal lymphadenopathy with hypersensitivity pneumonitis induced by penicillin.
TLDR
A 54-year-old Japanese man demonstrated a sultamicillin-induced hilar and mediastinal lymphadenopathy with hypersensitivity pneumonitis, suggesting that an alteration in cell-mediated mechanisms was responsible for the patient's symptoms.
