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 76-year-old man took a chest X-ray for his medical checkup and an abnormal shadow was detected in the right lower lung field. For more detailed examination, he was referred to our hospital. Chest computed tomography showed a 20-mm nodule with relatively regular margins in the right lower lobe. A compact proliferation of circular to polygonal cells with a(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)
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)
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)
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)
A 53-year-old Japanese man with advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the thoracic esophagus underwent a subtotal esophagectomy with gastric tube reconstruction through the posterior mediastinum. The staging was T3N0M0. Gastrointestinal endoscopy 6 months after surgery revealed a submucosal lesion in the gastric tube used for reconstruction. A biopsy yielded(More)
A very rare case of deciduoid mesothelioma in the pelvic cavity is presented. A 24-year-old woman (gestational stage: 28 weeks and 6 days) was admitted because of a tumor mass in the abdominal cavity. A well-circumscribed and fibrously encapsulated tumor mass was revealed in the Douglas cavity. Histologically, tumor cells were arranged in a solid sheet with(More)
