More than 50% of hemobilia cases are related to iatrogenic trauma from hepatobiliary procedures, and needle biopsy of the liver represents the most common cause. A minority of hemobilia cases are due to hepatobiliary disorders such as cholangitis, hepatobiliary cancers,(More)
CONTEXT An extramedullary plasmacytoma is a discrete collection of monoclonal plasmocytes arising in tissues other than the bone.

Renal cell cancer (RCC) accounts for approximately 3% of all adult malignancies. RCC has a metastasis rate of approximately 25%, which is most commonly to the lungs (>50%). On the contrary, RCC metastasis to the gastrointestinal tract (excluding the liver) is very uncommon and ranges from 0.2 to 0.7%. Thus, a gastric cancer in a patient with known(More)
Over the past 2 decades we have witnessed an explosion of new radioisotopic tracers aimed at detecting, staging and eventually treating tumors. In fact, nuclear oncology has evolved into a field on its own. Aside from aspecific radioisotopic tracers such as thallium 201 or gallium 67, clinicians and oncologists can now use specific radiolabeled monoclonal(More)
Sarcoidosis is a multisystem disease that most commonly involves the lungs and the lymph nodes, but with genitourinary tract involvement, can easily mimic testicular cancer with metastasis to the lungs. We describe the case of a 30-year-old African-American male who presented with complaints of a headache, skin lesions, and a scrotal mass. A computed(More)
