We encountered a 49-year-old HIV-infected man with chronic renal insufficiency who developed rhabdomyolysis after treatment with simvastatin. He recovered after initiating hemodialysis and discontinuing oral medications. Rhabdomyolysis most likely resulted from an excessive blood concentration of simvastatin caused by concomitant use of fluconazole in the(More)
We report a case of a 38-year-old man who was diagnosed with a mediastinal germ cell tumor. After induction chemotherapy, the tumor marker levels normalized, but the tumor itself continued to grow. Surgical resection was performed successfully, but the patient developed acute megakaryoblastic leukemia 6 months later, and induction and consolidation(More)
A 69-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with a faint infiltrative shadow in the right middle lung field on chest X-ray in August 1996. In addition to inflammatory changes in right S2 and S3, an intrabronchial elliptical mass with a low CT number (mean number:-144 HU), was noted in the right upper bronchus on chest high resolution computed tomogram(More)
A 65-year-old Japanese man presented to our hospital in June 2013 with a 6-day history of fever and fatigue, a 24-h history of thirst, and polyuria. His temperature was 37.8°C and he was alert. However, laboratory tests revealed severe hyperglycemia, undetectable C-peptide levels, and diabetic ketoacidosis. Serum antibody testing confirmed a Coxsackie virus(More)
We describe 2 cases of IgG4-related disease with pleural effusion in elderly men. Both patients had elevated serum IgG4 levels, and the characteristics of their pleural effusion were similar. Patient 1 had pericardial effusion and retroperitoneal fibrosis, and a biopsy specimen from the pericardium showed infiltration of abundant IgG4-positive plasma cells(More)
Twelve patients with stage IIIb non-small cell lung cancer underwent induction therapy and resection from January 1990 to July 1998. They were divided into two groups; group A (n = 5) received two (to four) preresectional cisplatin and videsine chemotherapy, group B (n = 7) received chemoradiotherapy (radiation with concurrent low-dose-daily cisplatin). All(More)
A 67-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with a faint abnormal shadow in the right S2 on January 1995. Chest CT showed a faint abnormal shadow about 3 cm in diameter with multiple small air spaces. He was admitted again 18 months later for surgical treatment because the shadow on chest X-ray had grown. Right upper lobectomy was performed in June 1996(More)
A 28-year-old woman was admitted to a nearby hospital because of low-grade fever and lower abdominal pain, where ascites and slightly elevated serum CA125 level were found. Both acid-fast stain (AFS) and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) failed to detect Mycobacterium tuberculosis in her ascitic fluid, sputum, and gastric juice. She was referred to our(More)
Brain tumors are frequently treated with steroids due to the presence of peritumoral edema. However, in Japan it is not widely recognized that primary brain tumor patients who are receiving steroid therapy become susceptible to Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP). We reviewed the clinical features and risk factors for PCP in brain tumor patients treated at(More)
