BACKGROUND Multiple different types of mediastinal masses may be encountered on imaging techniques in symptomatic or asymptomatic patients. The location and composition of these lesions are critical to narrowing the differential diagnosis. METHODS Radiological compartmentalisation of the mediastinum helps in focusing the diagnosis of masses on the basis(More)
We describe a 76-year-old woman who had persistent generalized pruritus as the only cutaneous manifestation of a cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (mycosis fungoides). No cutaneous lesions were observed throughout the patient's course. Skin biopsy specimens obtained from normal-looking pruritic skin revealed a discrete perivascular lymphocytic infiltrate in the(More)
BACKGROUND Gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GIST) are rare malignancies characterised by their association with KIT oncogene mutations. Until now, population-based reports of the incidence or survival of kit-confirmed GIST have been rare, and none have originated in Southern Europe. MATERIALS AND METHODS We used the Girona Cancer Registry to identify(More)
OBJECTIVE We qualitatively and quantitatively compared MRI enhancement obtained with gadofosveset, an albumin-binding blood-pool contrast agent, and with gadobutrol, an extracellular contrast agent, in patients with glioblastoma. METHODS Thirty-five patients (25 men; 64 ± 14 years) with histologically proven glioblastoma underwent MRI including pre- and(More)
INTRODUCTION Inflammatory fibroid polyp (IFP) is a protuberant lesion, located near the muscularis mucosae and composed of a proliferation of fusiform cells and conjunctive fibers surrounding capillaries and a variable inflammatory infiltrate. It is believed to be a poorly controlled inflammatory repair response. Our aim was to study the clinical,(More)
Spontaneous massive haemothorax is uncommon and usually occurs as a result of pulmonary infarction, arteriovenous fistula, neoplasm, ruptured aortic aneurysm, rupture of pleural adhesions or pleural endometriosis. Massive haemothorax in Von Recklinghausen's disease occurs rarely but with potentially fatal results in spite of surgery. We present a case of a(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE We aimed to assess the distribution of the lymphoid neoplasms and their histological subtypes in accordance with the World Health Organization (WHO) classification by calculating their incidences rates in our area. PATIENTS AND METHOD From January 1994 to December 2001, 1,288 patients diagnosed with lymphoid neoplasms were(More)
Of 25 cases of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, confirmed by open chest lung biopsy between January 1979 and July 1981, 5 patients had been taking amiodarone in doses less than 600 mg daily for 1 to 6 years. No lung disease had been observed in any patient before the administration of amiodarone, and other drugs, factors and diseases thought to play a role in(More)
