Glypican-3 (GPC3) is one of carcinoembryonic antigens known to be overexpressed in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). It has been suggested that GPC3 may be related to the development of HCC in a background of chronic hepatitis (CH) and liver cirrhosis (LC). Therefore, in an attempt to establish an early diagnostic marker of HCC, we quantified the number of(More)
Spontaneous regression of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is rare. We found spontaneous regression of HCC in a 53-year-old Chinese with liver cirrhosis. A liver mass 3 cm in diameter was revealed by B-ultrasonography. The resected mass showed histologically complete necrosis. The necrotic tissue was filled with large debris from a neoplastic tissue,(More)
A 66-year-old male with unbearable pruritus and jaundice was admitted for detailed examination. Blood tests on admission showed increased bilirubin with a dominant direct fraction. Ultrasonography and computed tomography performed subsequent to admission showed no narrowing or distension of the bile ducts. As the jaundice symptoms were not improved by the(More)
A 63-year-old woman was admitted to hospital with pain in the right lower quadrant. Abdominal computed tomography (CT) revealed a 60-mm cystic mass at a site corresponding to the appendix. The mass wall on the appendicular ostium was thickened and enhanced by contrast, while calcifi-cation was observed in the mass wall on the appendicular tip. No projection(More)
PURPOSE To prospectively clarify the effects of obstructive jaundice (OJ) on hepatic hemodynamics using contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (US). METHODS Subjects comprised 14 patients admitted to our hospital for OJ between April 2013 and March 2014. Contrast-enhanced US was performed using the LOGIQ E9 ultrasound device during the jaundice phase, before(More)
