In Korea, endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) has been widely accepted for the treatment of early gastric cancers (EGCs). However, the understanding of the long-term clinical outcome of ESD for EGC remains insufficient. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to assess the long-term clinical outcome and efficacy of ESD for the treatment of EGCs,(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) has become the treatment of choice for patients with multiple myeloma (MM). Studies have shown that maintenance treatment with interferon-alpha is associated with improved survival rates following ASCT. However, despite these recent advances in regimes, relapses are inevitable; thus, the prediction(More)
This is the first case report to describe a 44-year-old woman with a history of advanced hepatocellular carcinoma who developed toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) clinically after taking 400 mg sorafenib (Nexavar®, BAY 43-9006) and tosufloxacin orally once per day. Both sorafenib and tosufloxacin were eventually discontinued, and the TEN resolved with(More)
AIM To identify clinicopathologic factors influencing the accuracy of a high-frequency catheter probe endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) for superficial esophageal carcinomas (SECs). METHODS A total of 126 patients with endoscopically suspected SEC, who underwent EUS and curative treatment at Pusan National University Hospital during 2005-2013, were(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Globus is a persistent or intermittent non-painful sensation of a lump or foreign body in the throat. Given the benign nature of the condition and the association of gastroesophageal reflux disease, empirical therapy with proton pump inhibitor seems reasonable for patients with typical globus. The aim of this study was to investigate the(More)
Endoscopic retrograde biliary drainage (ERBD) is useful for the palliative decompression of biliary obstruction. However, the complications of ERBD include cholangitis, hemorrhage, acute pancreatitis, obstruction of the stent, and duodenal perforation. Pressure necrosis on the duodenal mucosa by the stent may contribute to perforation. Although duodenal(More)
Gastric mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma represents approximately 40% of gastric lymphomas, and its incidence is increasing. An early diagnosis for gastric MALT lymphoma is important, but not easy due to non-specific symptoms and endoscopic findings. Diagnosis is based on the histopathologic evaluation of multiple, deep and repeated(More)
Wilson's disease typically presents symptoms associated with liver damage or neuropsychiatric disturbances, while endocrinologic abnormalities are rare. We report an unprecedented case of hypopituitarism in a patient with Wilson's disease. A 40-year-old woman presented with depression, general weakness and anorexia. Laboratory tests and imaging studies were(More)
Pseudoachalasia secondary to primary squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the liver is extremely rare and has not been reported until now. Here, we report a unique case of primary SCC of the liver initially presenting with progressive dysphagia along with short periods of significant weight loss. A 58-year-old man initially presented with progressive dysphagia(More)
