The hallmark of tuberous sclerosis is the presence of multiple cortical tubers. Identifying the epileptogenic tubers is difficult and often requires invasive intracranial electroencephalograph (EEG) monitoring. We report on a patient with tuberous sclerosis upon whom the novel magnetoencephalography (MEG) technique of synthetic aperture magnetometry (SAM)(More)
Birt-Hogg-Dubé syndrome (BHD) is a rare autosomal dominant inherited disease caused by a germline mutation in the folliculin gene mapped in the region of chromosome 17p11.2. BHD predisposes the patient to cutaneous fibrofolliculomas (FFs), pulmonary cysts (PCs), and renal cell carcinoma (RC). Here, we present two cases of BHD in Japanese patients. One(More)
Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is an autosomal dominant disorder with multi-system involvement and variable manifestations. There has been significant progress in TSC research and the development of technologies used to diagnose this disorder. As a result, individuals with mild TSC are now being diagnosed, including many older adults who have not(More)
A monoclonal antibody that recognizes antigenic determinants on the nucleus of cultured mammalian cells was isolated. Immunofluorescence studies using this antibody showed that the recognized antigen was present not only on the nucleus but also in cytoplasmic vesicles of interphase cells and in the perichromosomal region of mitotic cells. Premature(More)
Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by epilepsy, mental retardation, skin lesions, and tumors in various organs. However, TSC is sometimes difficult to diagnose because of its broad phenotypic spectrum. In such cases, it is essential to find a mutation in the disease-causing genes, TSC1 and TSC2. In this study,(More)
Erdheim-Chester disease is a rare non-Langerhans form of histiocytosis with multiple organ involvement. Approximately 20% of patients have xanthoma-like lesions, usually on the eyelids. We report a case of Erdheim-Chester disease in a 32-year-old male who showed peculiar xanthomatous skin lesions and also had atopic dermatitis. His skin manifestations(More)
BACKGROUND Neurofibromatosis type I (NF1) predisposes patients to various neoplasias, including gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs). Little is known about the risk of developing GISTs for NF1 patients or the clinicopathologic features and prognosis of NF1-GIST. METHODS We conducted a multi-detector computed tomography screen for adult NF1 patients(More)
IMPORTANCE Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is an autosomal dominant disorder leading to the aberrant activation of the mammalian target of rapamycin complex 1. Although the efficacy of mammalian target of rapamycin complex 1 inhibitors against tumors in patients with TSC, including facial angiofibroma, has been well investigated, their efficacy against(More)
