AIMS To investigate patterns of delays among patients with non-small-cell lung cancer and to identify reasons for the delays. METHODS This prospective study included 101 patients with non-small-cell lung carcinoma. Clinical files of the patients were analyzed and a questionnaire was created to obtain data. Several time intervals and delays were determined(More)
We aimed to assess the incidence of multiple primary malignancies in primary lung cancer patients. We retrospectively evaluated the clinical files of 1038 primary lung cancer patients diagnosed in 2004. Forty patients (3.9 %) had multiple primary malignancies. There were 34 men (85 %) and 6 women (15 %). Their mean age was 62.4 +/- 8.6 years. While 35 cases(More)
Thymic cysts are rarerly encountered lesions which are only 1 to 2% of all mediastinal masses. We present six patients with thymic cysts diagnosed between 2000 and 2004 in this report. There were three male and three female patients whose ages ranged from 34 to 64 years (mean age, 46 years). Four patients are nonsmoker. None of the patients had a previous(More)
Wegener's granulomatosis (WG) relapse is frequent. Although lung involvement occurs in 85% of patients, endobronchial presentation of the disease is uncommon. We reported a relapsing case of WG presenting as an endobronchial mass. A 56- year-old man present ed with recurrence of WG following 14 months of cyclophosphamide and prednisolone therapy and 36(More)
In this study, we aimed to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of transthoracic fine needle aspiration (TFNA) specimens in establishing the specific cell type in primary lung cancer and to study the influence of several factors on this accuracy. Forty-six patients with lung cancer diagnosed by TFNA specimens who subsequently underwent thoracotomy between April(More)
