BACKGROUND Nuclear protein in testis (NUT) midline carcinoma (NMC) is a rare, aggressive malignancy. Only two pediatric and three adult cases of pulmonary NMCs have been documented. In more than two-thirds of NMC cases, a gene fusion between NUT and BRD4 or BRD3 has been documented; other fusions are rare. CASE PRESENTATION A 36-year-old woman was(More)
We report an asymptomatic 72-year-old woman with a small, incidentally detected, pancreatic somatostatinoma. The tumor, measuring 1 cm in diameter, showed a hypervascular pattern of contrast enhancement on computed tomography, and was found angiographically to receive a blood supply from the posterior superior pancreaticoduodenal artery. The results of(More)
An 86-year-old woman was admitted because of heart failure. Trans-thoracic echocardiography demonstrated a pericardial effusion and masses occupying the right atrium. Axial non-contrast computed tom-ography (CT) image showed isoattenuating masses relative to the myo-cardium in the right atrium (Panel A1). Contrast-enhanced CT revealed mildly enhancing right(More)
Left ventricular (LV) involvement in the advanced stage of arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) is a well recognized phenomenon. T wave inversion in the lateral leads has been reported to be an electrocardiographic marker of LV involvement. Variants of ARVC that preferentially affect the left ventricle (left-dominant subtype of(More)
We report a rare case of primitive neuroectodermal tumor arising from adrenal gland in adulthood, diagnosed preoperatively as having non-functional adrenocortical adenoma. Laparoscopic adrenalectomy was performed. Immunohistological examination revealed the definite diagnosis as primitive neuroectodermal tumor of the adrenal gland. Although primitive(More)
The concentrations of placental transfer of halothane (H), enflurane (E), sevoflurane (S), and isoflurane (I) were measured in 46 patients during cesarean section. The mean inhalation times of H (0.5%), E (1%), S (0.8%), and I (0.6%) were 13 min 27 s, 13 min 49s, 13 min 20s, and 8 min 8s, respectively. The mean concentrations in the maternal artery (MA)(More)
