Primary small cell carcinoma of the liver is an extremely rare tumor. Extrapulmonary small cell carcinoma shares many features of pulmonary small cell carcinoma, including the histological appearance, the aggressive clinical behavior and the frequent short-lasting response to either chemotherapy or radiotherapy. We experienced a 56-year-old man with small(More)
Villous tumors of the stomach are somewhat rare with approximately 100 cases only reported in the literatures and have tendency to undergo malignant transformation as high as 72%. They are frequently multiple and associated with other gastrointestinal neoplasm. Thirty percent of them are associated with an independent gastric carcinoma. Gastric villous(More)
Hypertrophic osteoarthropathy is characterized by clubbing of the digital tips and periosteal reaction of long bones. Most of the cases are associated with malignancy or other conditions such as congenital heart disease, liver cirrhosis, pulmonary fibrosis, biliary atresia, and gastrointestinal polyps. Hypertrophic osteoarthropathy associated with(More)
Dieulafoy lesion is an abnormally large calibered submucosal artery associated with a minute mucosal defect in the gastrointestinal mucosa. It is a rare cause of profuse, but intermittent gastrointestinal bleeding. The lesion is usually located in the stomach, although it may occur anywhere in the gastrointestinal tract. Dieulafoy lesion is extremely rare(More)
We report on a 13-year-old female with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) who exhibited symptoms of severe migraine and familial moyamoya disease. Cerebral magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) showed stenosis and occlusion of the bilateral internal carotid arteries associated with the development of collateral circulation (moyamoya vessels). In a child, as(More)
Purpose: To determine the hepatic and vascular enhancement profiles with nonionic dimeric, iodixanol, contrast agent in the rabbit and to compare them with nonionic monomeric, ioversol, contrast agent. Materials and Methods: Seven rabbits initially underwent hepatic dynamic CT scan with either iodixanol or ioversol, followed by repeated CT scan with other(More)
BACKGROUNDS/AIMS The prognosis of cirrhotic patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) depends on both residual liver function and tumor characteristics. The aims of this study was to construct a new prognostic index for HCC patients: the modified CLIP score, and to compare its discriminatory ability and predictive power with those of the CLIP score that(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS There are several staging systems to decide the stage of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), but yet incomplete. Okuda stage which includes both tumor characteristics and liver function is widely used. The aims of this study were to assess the usefulness of known prognostic factors and Okuda staging system in 237 cases of HCC. METHODS A(More)
