We describe an autopsied case in which a circumscribed lesion involving the left precentral gyrus caused mild but lasting Broca's aphasia. The patient developed nonfluent speech and writing disturbances (consistent with mild Broca's aphasia) following malignant lymphoma of the brain. After subtotal resection of the tumor and whole brain irradiation, his(More)
A 57-year-old man, whose occupational history was that of a chromate worker for about 35 years, suffered nasal perforation during and died due to pulmonary cancer. In the autopsy materials, the concentration of chromium in the lung tissues was very high, being about 90 times the amount found in normal lungs. The chromium particles in the lung tissues could(More)
A patient with malignant fibrous histiocytoma of the heart is described who was initially presented with a left atrial tumor. Subsequent 201Tl and 67Ga scintigraphy showed massive uptake of the tracers by the tumor and the pattern of uptake was thought to reflect underlying necrosis and hemorrhage within the tumor.
In general the 123I-IMP SPECT image of a brain tumor is visualized as a defect. Tumor case with high IMP uptake have been rarely reported. We encountered a case of primary malignant lymphoma of the brain with high IMP uptake on both early and late scans corresponding to the CT lesions. Previously reported positive cases seemed to be confined to the early(More)
The case of a 27 year-old woman with typical manifestations of multiple endocrine neoplasia type II b is reported. Medullary carcinoma of the thyroid was detected on the occasion of an operation for goiter when she was 22 years of age.

Effects of TRH on sleep and sleep-related growth hormone (GH) release were examined in four normal volunteers. A bolus of 500 microgram of synthetic TRH was injected iv at the onset of sleep, followed by continuous iv infusion of 1000 microgram of TRH dissolved in saline for 3 h on two nights. Saline alone was infused on two control nights in each of these(More)
