PURPOSE To report the incidence of clinical, pathological and radiological fat necrosis (FN) in women treated with accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI) using interstitial brachytherapy (BRT) for early-stage breast cancer and to study certain variables associated with it. METHODS AND MATERIALS Between May 2000 and August 2008, 171 women were(More)
AIM To assess the diagnostic accuracy of whole-body magnetic resonance imaging (WB-MRI) for metastatic disease in patients with solid small round cell tumours (SRCT) by comparing it with routine staging procedures (standard of care). MATERIALS AND METHODS Eligible cases of neuroblastoma, primitive neuroectodermal tumour, and rhabdomyosarcoma were enrolled(More)
Neuroblastoma is the third common tumor in children. Imaging plays an important role in the diagnosis, staging, treatment planning, response evaluation and in follow-up of a case of Neuroblastoma. The International Neuroblastoma Risk Group task force has recently introduced an imaging-based staging system and laid down guidelines for uniform reporting of(More)
To determine the outcomes of resection of satellite lesions in PRE-treatment Tumor EXTension (PRETEXT) II and III multifocal hepatoblastoma irrespective of their disappearance after chemotherapy. To compare the overall outcomes of multifocal and unifocal hepatoblastoma. Fourteen patients with PRETEXT II (n = 7) and III (n = 7) multifocal hepatoblastoma(More)
BACKGROUND The rarity of Ewing sarcoma of rib has resulted in paucity of data, particularly on the prognostic factors and pattern of relapses. We analyzed the recurrences in patients with primary nonmetastatic Ewing sarcoma of the rib and examined prognostic factors of poor outcome. METHODS From January 2004 to January 2011, 37 patients were treated.(More)
The management of Wilms' tumour has evolved through thorough systematic research, predominantly lead by two groups: the Wilms' Tumour Study Committee of the International Society of Paediatric Oncology (SIOP) and National Wilms' Tumor Study Group (NWTSG) of North America. These two groups differ in their approach: SIOP advocates initial chemotherapy of 4-6(More)
Benign liver tumors in children are rare and data regarding the surgical outcomes are deficient. We reviewed our experience in the management of these tumors particularly the extent, safety, and effectiveness of surgical resection. Between March 2005 and March 2014, 10/90 liver resections were performed for benign liver tumors. Three other patients received(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The rarity of Ewing sarcoma (ES) of the jaw coupled with the technical challenge of resection and associated functional and cosmetic impairment has resulted in deficient data on surgical management of these tumors. The purpose of this study is to describe the results of surgical excision and reconstruction of primary non-metastatic(More)
BACKGROUND Malignant salivary gland neoplasms are rare in children. The purpose of this study was to present our experience in the treatment of primary and recurrent salivary gland neoplasm and contribute to the fractional available data. METHODS All patients <18 years, treated between June 2005 and April 2014 were included in this study. RESULTS The(More)
Serendipitous observation of multifocal bilobar hepatic metastases on F-fluoride (NaF) PET arising in the setting of infiltrating ductal carcinoma of breast is described in the present report. A 46-year-old female patient with infiltrating ductal carcinoma had an F-fluoride PET which demonstrated uptake in multiple skeletal metastasis and several upper(More)
