Sclerosing encapsulating peritonitis (SEP) is characterized by the diffuse appearance of marked sclerotic thickening of the peritoneal membrane. We experienced a case with SEP accompanied by regional changes of peritoneum. A 37-year-old woman with end-stage renal failure was started on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis in 1985 and was transferred to(More)
We present a case of angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia (ALHE) affecting the auricular area of a 31-year-old man, which clinically mimicked arteriovenous malformation (AVM). The histology and laboratory data distinctively revealed ALHE, while angiography demonstrated typical findings of AVM. Although several reports have hitherto mentioned the(More)
Arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is usually congenital, but an acquired type is also known, of which most are due to a previous injury. We report six patients with acquired digital AVM, all having a small patch of AVM localized to the tip of one finger, and therefore quite different from ordinary AVM which consists of a large pulsatile mass. Histologically,(More)
We report 10 patients with hereditary benign telangiectasia (HBT), in whom the age ranged from 1 to 19 years (mean 7.5). The male/female ratio was 1 : 2.3 (3 : 7). Four patients (40%) had congenital lesions. Image analysis with Doppler echogram, angiography and thermography revealed an arterial component in the lesions, consistent with arteriovenous(More)
We present 57-year-old man in whom ectopic extrammary Paget's disease (EMPD) affected the upper abdomen. Although the clinical appearance was suggestive of Bowen's disease or superficial basal cell epithelioma (BCE), the biopsy specimen showed EMPD histologically. Only 12 cases of ectopic EMPD have been reported (including this case). In our 20 year(More)
BACKGROUND Given the exponential growth in cardiac device implantations, the need for less invasive lead extraction is increasing. The Excimer laser was approved for lead removal in Japan in 2010. The present study reports the initial experience using this novel technique to extract chronically implanted pacemaker and implantable cardioverter defibrillator(More)
Losses in thyroxine-binding globulin (TBG) in peritoneal dialysate and thyroid function were evaluated in patients undergoing continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD), in comparison to patients on hemodialysis (HD) without TBG loss in the dialysate. The TBG concentration in the peritoneal dialysate was 0.26 +/- 0.09 microgram/ml (mean +/- SD, n =(More)
BACKGROUND Inaccurate measurements of body temperature might be associated with complications during the perioperative period. We conducted a retrospective cohort study to compare the bladder temperature and the tympanic membrane temperature in patients undergoing open repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm. METHODS Fifteen adult patients who had undergone(More)
