Ovarian mucinous cystadenomas are benign epithelial neoplasms that occur most often in the third to sixth decade of life. Ovarian mucinous cystadenoma can be classified into 3 categories (benign, borderline malignancy, malignancy) based on histopathologic evaluation. Premenarchal cases of ovarian mucinous cystadenoma of borderline malignancy are exceedingly(More)
A 55-year-old man presented with tumor microembolism manifesting as characteristic patterns of pulmonary perfusion on lung scanning. He had a 2-week history of dyspnea and general fatigue. Echocardiography demonstrated right ventricular enlargement. Computed tomography of the chest was normal. Lung perfusion imaging showed multiple subsegmental peripheral(More)
We describe the case of a 72 year-old man with a huge tumor in his lower abdomen and extremely high serum alpha-fetoprotein levels (99,100 ng/ml). The patient had no risk factors for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) or liver disease. Computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and hepatic angiography detected no tumors in the liver before surgery. The(More)
We report a rare case of large-cell neuroendocrine carcinoma of the breast. A 63-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with a firm mass in the right breast. Mammography revealed a high-density mass with specula, and ultrasonography showed a heterogeneous hypoechoic mass with irregular margin and posterior acoustical shadowing. She underwent(More)
A case of abdominal wall desmoid which enlarged toward the liver and mimicked an intra-abdominal tumor is presented. T*2-weighted MR images clearly demonstrated the tumor's continuity with the rectus abdominis muscle. The case presented suggests MRI may provide more valuable information concerning the origin of a right-upper-quadrant mass than CT does.(More)
An umbilical cyst originating from an omphalomesenteric duct remnant is extremely rare, and to the best of our knowledge, it has scarcely been reported in medical literature. We present ultrasonographic manifestations and computed tomographic findings of an umbilical cyst originating from an omphalomesenteric duct remnant in a 6-year-old girl. In cases of(More)
Pseudoangiomatous stromal hyperplasia (PASH) of the breast is a common microscopic lesion that is found at breast biopsy, and presents with proliferation of the stromal cells and slit-like pseudovascular spaces with endothelial-like spindle cells. In contrast, nodular PASH is relatively rare. We report here a case of nodular PASH with multiple palpable(More)
A rare adult case of retroperitoneal ganglioneuroma in which magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) clearly demonstrated unusual extension of the tumor across the midline is reported. Dynamic MR imaging was very useful to distinguish benign ganglioneuroma from other retroperitoneal tumors, especially neuroblastoma and pheochromocytoma.
Diffuse intestinal arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is very rare. We describe a case of diffuse AVM involving the jejunum and the total colon in an adult. In addition, mesenteric varices without portal hypertension is demonstrated on angiography of the superior mesenteric artery. The high flow through the AVMs may be a major component in the etiology of the(More)
