Primary hepatic lymphoma is a rare disorder and the clinical behavior remains unknown. We report a patient with primary hepatic lymphoma who had chronic hepatitis B. She was asymptomatic; however, a solitary tumor in the left lobe was incidentally detected. After left hepatic lobectomy was performed, a diagnosis of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma was made. No tumor(More)
A 25-year-old-woman with four years history of pancolonic ulcerative colitis (UC) underwent laparoscopy-assisted restorative proctocolectomy. She developed postoperatively abdominal pain, high fever, bloody diarrhea. Computed tomography showed thickening of duodenal and small intestinal wall, and endoscopic examination revealed diffuse mucosal edema,(More)
It was previously shown that body surface QRST isointegral maps of the anterior chest were abnormal in patients with right ventricular overload and that the abnormalities varied with hemodynamic status. The QRST isointegral maps were first characterized by using a departure index map for normal controls. The study group consisted of 14 patients with(More)
A 58-year-old man underwent sleeve upper lobectomy for squamous cell carcinoma of the right lung in April 1993. Eleven months after the operation, local recurrence at the bronchial suture line was detected by bronchoscopy. As the patient declined our proposal for performing reoperation, the recurrent tumor was treated with concurrent radiotherapy and(More)
We report a case of diabetic mastopathy in a man with type 2 diabetes. The patient was a 62-year-old man who had been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes at the age of 46 years. He had been treated with oral hypoglycemic agents. He noticed a mass in his left breast in February 2007, when HbA(1)c was 7.6% with the treatment using oral hypoglycemic agents,(More)
A 17-year-old male underwent the division of the double accessory pathways under the diagnosis of Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome. At this time, we perceived that Ebstein's anomaly was combined with WPW syndrome, but we didn't treat Ebstein's anomaly, because it was slight. After this operation he relieved from the tachycardia attack completely. Ten(More)
To elucidate the mechanism of electrocardiographic changes due to right ventricular pressure overload, serial changes on body surface maps recorded in two children with valvular pulmonary stenosis before and after successful reduction of right ventricular pressure by balloon valvuloplasty (BVP) were studied. Body surface maps and 12-lead electrocardiograms(More)
