We have conducted nationwide surveys of primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL) treated since 1985. In the present study, we newly collected data between 2000 and 2004 and investigated changes in clinical features and outcome over time. A total of 739 patients with histologically proven PCNSL under going radiotherapy were analyzed. Seventeen(More)
Atypical and anaplastic meningiomas frequently recur in the relatively short-term after surgery. We have followed such postoperative cases by short-interval repeated MRI and have performed stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) for progressive tumors as a salvage therapy. The objective of this report was assessment of the degree of tumor control, the risk of(More)
OBJECTIVE Long-term survival and late toxicities of a randomized Phase II study of chemoradiotherapy for esophageal cancer were analyzed. METHODS Eligible patients were <75 years old and performance status 0-2, and had Stages II-IVA esophageal cancer. For arm A (short-term infusion), cisplatin 70 mg/m(2) Days 1 and 29 and 5-fluorouracil 700 mg/m(2) Days(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH) of bone, a relatively rare primary malignant bone tumour, is a distinct clinicopathological entity as opposed to MFH derived from soft tissue. Although the true histogenesis of this condition is still controversial, a considerable number of cases of MFH in soft tissue show positive immunohistochemical(More)
In Kyoto University Hospital, stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) has been performed for its rapid palliative effect in patients with recurrent primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL), often in combination with salvage chemotherapy. In the present study, the treatment outcome and toxicity of SRS for recurrent PCNSL was retrospectively evaluated. Between(More)
Chemoradiation therapy is widely used to treat both inoperable and operable patients, and is less invasive than surgery. Although the number of long-term survivors who have received chemoradiation therapy is increasing, the long-term toxicity pattern and cumulative incidence of toxicity regarding this modality are poorly understood. Classically,(More)

The autonomic nervous function in patients with migraine was studied during headache free intervals. (I) Hemodynamic test. The following observations were made: (1) a decrease in overshoot in Valsalva's maneuver; (2) orthostatic hypotension; (3) low levels of plasma norepinephrine; (4) failure in elevation of the plasma norepinephrine level after head-up(More)
