We report a case of primary appendiceal cancer that metastasized to the ureter. The patient was a 51-year-old woman who complained of persistent left back pain and right lower abdominal pain. After a detailed examination she was diagnosed to have cancer of the appendix, multiple liver metastases, and left hydronephrosis. Since an obstruction of the(More)
PURPOSE According to the World Health Organization (WHO) classification of pulmonary large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma (LCNEC), one of the neuroendocrine tumors of the lung, is considered as a variant of non-small cell lung carcinoma. The objective of this study was to investigate the treatment strategy for LCNEC. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the(More)
Epithelial-myoepithelial carcinoma (EMC) of the salivary glands is an uncommon, low-grade malignant tumor. A recent report demonstrates sebaceous differentiation in this tumor even though its significance has never been documented as a precise histologic variant. Six cases of EMC exhibiting sebaceous differentiation (sebaceous EMC) of the parotid gland were(More)
The usefulness of determining gastric cancer invasion depth by magnifying endoscopy with narrow-band imaging (NBI-ME) has not been established. The objective of our study was to retrospectively compare NBI-ME images of differentiated submucosal (SM) 1 cancer with those of SM2 to identify the indicators of invasion depth for SM2 gastric cancer. Fifteen(More)
Tumor lysis syndrome (TLS) is a potentially life-threating complication of tumors or chemotherapy treatment. TLS commonly occurs in hematological malignancies, but it is very rare in patients with a solid tumor. In cases of solid tumors, TLS usually occurs spontaneously and after the initiation of anticancer therapy, and it has a high mortality rate. We(More)
We report an extremely rare case of a gastric duplication cyst together with an aberrant pancreatic ductal system, which communicated with the stomach rather than the pancreatic ductal system with no evidence of pancreatitis. A 46-year-old woman developed severe abdominal pain after a 10-year history of occasional mild abdominal pain. Upper gastrointestinal(More)
A 56-year-old man presented with a very rare true neurenteric cyst in the conus medullaris without evidence of vertebral or visceral anomaly manifesting as a 6-month history of mild low back and bilateral inguinal pain. No motor weakness was found in the bilateral lower extremities. He had also suffered dysesthesia in the bilateral feet for several weeks(More)
Primary intracranial T cell type malignant lymphoma is extremely rare. Only 8 cases are reported in the literature so far. In this paper, a case with this type of malignant lymphoma is reported. A 41-year-old man was admitted because of abnormal behavior. Enhanced CT scan demonstrated high density mass and perifocal low-density area in the right frontal(More)
The authors describe a unique presentation of Wegener granulomatosis (WG) manifesting predominantly as meningitis. Magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated diffuse meningeal enhancement, including the pia mater, in a 28-year-old man with meningitis. A diagnosis of atypical WG was based on the findings of a dural biopsy sample and an elevated cytoplasmic(More)
Neurofibroma is a representative external abnormality observed along with café-au-lait spots in association with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF-1). We encountered a case of NF-1 in which severe bleeding was observed from a neurofibroma under the scalp due to minor trauma. Only four similar cases have been reported in the past literature and we believed that(More)
