Three patients with adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATLL) accompanied by cerebral mass lesions in their courses are reported. The findings of cerebrospinal fluid and their history suggested that those three cerebral involvements were the mass lesions derived from ATLL. Two of the three patients had acute type and the other one had chronic type ATLL. During(More)
BACKGROUND To improve the prognosis of patients with urachal cancer and establish an effective chemotherapeutic regimen for distant metastases. METHODS We conducted a retrospective study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of a modified combination of 5-fluorouracil, leucovorin and oxaliplatin (mFOLFOX6) therapy in patients with metastatic urachal cancer.(More)
Treatment failure with conventional approaches, including systemic and regional chemotherapy, for refractory advanced primary or metastatic hepatic cancers has evoked periodic waves of enthusiasm for isolated hepatic perfusion (IHP) over the past 50 years. With technical refinements of the procedure and the introduction of a novel biochemical regimen(More)
The purpose of this study was to assess the ability of fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG-PET/CT) to detect upper urinary tract urothelial carcinomas (UTUC) compared with pathological examination of tissues obtained by ureteroscopic biopsy and split cytologic analysis of urine obtained after retrograde pyelography.(More)
A 6-year-old girl with mediastinal ganglioneuroma was reported. Preoperative examinations revealed that the tumor had both secretive activity of catecholamine and uptake of 131-I-MIBG. Clinical symptom was only supraventricular premature beat on ECG. The tumor, which was located at the left upper mediastinum, was well encapsulated. Total surgical removal(More)
We retrospectively evaluated the efficacy and toxicity of low-dose estramustine phosphate (EMP) monotherapy in patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). We administered EMP at 140 or 280 mg/day to 89 patients between January 2003 and December 2012. None of the patients were receiving concomitant dexamethasone and none had ever been treated(More)
A 65-year-old man with urination difficulty visited our hospital. Because his prostate-specific antigen level was 1,619 ng/ml, we performed a prostate biopsy. The biopsy specimen yielded a diagnosis of adenocarcinoma with a Gleason score of 4+4. Computed tomography and bone scintigraphy showed lymph node, lung, and bone metastasis (cT3bN1M1). After 13(More)
OBJECTIVE Laparoscopic adrenalectomy is generally performed by either a transperitoneal approach (TA) or a retroperitoneal approach (RA). However, the optimal selection criteria for each approach are unclear. We investigated the factors affecting the safety of laparoscopic adrenalectomy to evaluate the optimal criteria for each approach. PATIENTS AND(More)
This was a retrospective study to evaluate the activity and toxicity of a combined chemotherapeutic regimen of gemcitabine and carboplatin (GCa) in patients with metastatic urothelial carcinomas (UCs) with special regard to patients with highly impaired renal function. Eleven patients whose creatinine clearance was 30 ml/min or under and who had been(More)
