Of these patients, 32 were diagnosed with peritonitis carcinomatosa, 21 had liver cirrhosis with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), and 12 had liver(More)
We reported 2 cases of breast cancer with lymph node metastasis treated with CAF (cyclophosphamide, adriamycin, 5-fluorouracil) and medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA). Case 1 was stage IV [T4b, N3 M1 (lung)] and case 2 was stage IIIa (T1, N2, M0). The two cases responded well to CAF and MPA therapy in local and systemic lesions, and then underwent(More)
A 60-year-old man with advanced rectal cancer and urinary bladder fistula received preoperative chemoradiotherapy with S-1(120mg/m / 2day)on weekdays and concurrent radiotherapy(65 Gy). After chemoradiotherapy, the clinical symptoms resolved and the tumor shrunk, as observed on endoscopic and radiologic examinations. However, remnant cancer was suspected;(More)
We have present a case of advanced esophageal cancer(Stage IVb), that has survived for 7 years and 4 months after systemic hemotherapy followed by radiation therapy. The patient is a female, 63 years old. We diagnosed her with esophageal cancer Stage IVb with direct invasion to the main bronchus and the metastatic lesion to the right lobe of thyroid gland.(More)

A 75-year-old female patient underwent distal gastrectomy with lymph node dissection for gastric cancer. Six months later, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed liver metastasis and radio frequency ablation (RFA) was performed. Ten months later, she underwent a partial hepatectomy for recurrent hepatic metastasis. Then,(More)
Primary malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH) of the heart is very rere. We report a case of a primary intracardiac MFH. A 50-year-old woman underwent an operation for congestive heart failure due to left atrial (LA) tumor. Cardiac echocardiogram showed the tumor attached to the septal wall and posterior wall of LA. We extendedly resected the tumor with(More)
A 65-year-old man suffering from acute pancreatitis underwent MRI scanning, which revealed a low signal on the T1 and T2 sequences, and hypovascularity in arterial phase in the head of the pancreas. This corresponded to the area showing the absence of the lower common bile duct. FDG-PET was highly suggestive of pancreatic cancer (T4N1M0, Stage IVa) with(More)
