We report an extremely rare case of primary squamous cell carcinoma of the stomach. A 69-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with a 2-month history of dysphagia and tarry stools. Endoscopic examination revealed a cauliflower-shaped protruding mass along the lesser curvature of the gastric cardia. Biopsy of the lesion revealed squamous cell carcinoma(More)
A 52-year-old man with Down's syndrome was implanted with a DDDR pacemaker for advanced atrioventricular block. He was admitted with development of skin eczema and partial exposure of the generator 1 year after reimplantation. There was no evidence of infection on laboratory data. A skin patch test was positive for the metal of the generator (purity 99.9%(More)
We report the first documented case of a solid and papillary tumor of the pancreas (SPT) complicating agenesis of the dorsal pancreas. A 28-year-old female patient was referred to our hospital for a pancreatic tumor detected at a local hospital. The laboratory findings were all within normal limits. Diagnostic images revealed absence of the dorsal pancreas(More)
A rare case of chondroblastoma arising from the temporal bone that occurred in a 60-year-old woman is reported. The tumor appeared well demarcated and osteolytic on the radiographs. CT scan clearly depicted marginal and central calcification in the tumor. MR imaging demonstrated two components in the tumor: a solid component with predominantly low signal(More)
PURPOSE We detected the relative DNA copy numbers (RCNs) at target loci in patients with stomach cancer with quantitative microsatellite analysis. We additionally clarified the relationship between DNA copy number aberrations and the clinical outcome of the patients. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Fresh frozen samples were obtained from 30 patients who had undergone(More)
Optimal salvage chemotherapy has not been established for lymphoid malignancy, which is refractory to the conventional cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone regimen. To explore an effective regimen, we conducted a phase I pilot study of combination chemotherapy with methotrexate, ifosfamide, l-asparaginase and dexamethasone (MILD),(More)
Tumour samples from 71 patients with stomach cancer, 41 patients with liver metastasis (group A) and 15 patients each in stages II-IV (group B) and stage I (group C) without liver metastasis were analysed. MAGE-A protein expression was evaluated by immunohistochemistry using a 6C1 monoclonal antibody and MAGE-A10 mRNA expression was detected by highly(More)
The aim of this study was to emphasize the utility and prove the accuracy of rapid diagnosis at the outpatient clinic for breast tumors by fine needle aspiration cytology [FNAC]. Rapid diagnosis for breast tumors by FNAC is performed on the same day just after mammography and echonography are carried out at our hospital and the result reported to the(More)
