As with most cancers the prognosis in pharyngeal and oral cavity cancer largely depends on tumour stage. Physical examination, including endoscopy should be combined with technical radiologic imaging to record the precise extent of tumour. The TNM staging system of the head and neck region is, in fact, an anatomic staging system that describes the anatomic(More)
To study the efficacy of reirradiation as salvage treatment in patients with locally recurrent nasopharyngeal carcinoma. Patients and Methods: Between 1993 and 2000, 20 consecutive patients (twelve males and eight females) with nasopharyngeal cancer, previously irradiated in different Hungarian institutions, were reirradiated for biopsy-proven locally(More)
Pilot studies have shown promising results in characterizing head and neck tumors (HNT) using dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI), differentiating between malignant and benign lesions and evaluating changes in response to chemoradiotherapy (CRT). Our aim was to find DCE-MRI parameters, biomarkers in evaluating the post-CRT status.(More)
The purpose of the study is to report a case of salvage low dose rate (LDR) prostate brachytherapy in a patient with locally recurrent prostate cancer, four years after his first treatment with combined external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) and high dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy. A 61-year-old man was treated with 1x10 Gy HDR brachytherapy and a total of(More)
The indication of neoadjuvant chemotherapy has been recently extended; it is now applied not only in locally advanced breast cancer but in primarily resecable tumours as well, in order to promote breast conservation. Based on recent clinical results, the reconsideration of traditional lymph node dissection in axillary staging is timely in patients receiving(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the clinicopathologic effects of local neoadjuvant Leukocyte Interleukin Injection (LI) regimen in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) patients. Treatment regimen included LI 800 IU/d as interleukin-2 (IL-2), administered half peritumorally and half perilymphatically five times per week for 3 weeks; low-dose cyclophosphamide;(More)
AIM To report the role of different imaging methods in staging individuals with multiple endocrine neoplasia 2A (MEN2A) or familial medullary thyroid carcinoma (FMTC). MATERIAL AND METHODS Fourteen newly diagnosed gene carriers underwent cervical ultrasound scanning (US), cervical and mediastinal CT, MRI and whole-body meta-[131I]iodobenzylguanidine(More)
OBJECTIVE Our clinical practice for FIGO Stage II endometrial cancer consists of Wertheim's radical hysterectomy as first choice of treatment. The evaluation of patients is based on D&C. The accuracy of this preoperative staging method is examined here. METHODS Twenty-nine patients with endometrial cancer with suspected cervical involvement (FIGO Stage(More)
The polymorphous low-grade adenocarcinoma of the nasopharynx is a rare disease. Polymorphous low-grade adenocarcinoma is a minor salivary gland neoplasm which occurs frequently in the mucosa of the soft and hard palates, in the buccal mucosa and in the upper lip. To date this entity has been identified within the oral cavity and only one case within the(More)
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has developed rapidly during the past few years and, according to the needs of therapy, has opened new perspectives in oncologic imaging with better and better realization of the latest technological advances. After the introduction of "organ preservation" protocols the role of imaging has become more important. New(More)
