OBJECTIVES The "organized hematoma" is a non-neoplastic, hemorrhagic lesion, which can develop in the paranasal sinus and nasal cavity. This is the first report on the relationship between the imaging and pathological findings. METHODS We diagnosed organized hematoma, based on three criteria: no existence of neoplastic cells; consistency of hematoma and(More)
CONCLUSION This superselective intra-arterial intervention technique enabled us to administer a higher dose of cisplatinum to the local lesion with a lower incidence of adverse issues by use of neutralizer, compared with the conventional methods. OBJECTIVE A wide variety of modalities, including surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy, alone or in(More)
A 53-year-old man sustained a 50 Hz, 60 kV electrical injury. The current flowed between his right hand and both feet. There was necrosis of the distal portion of the right forearm, and the fourth and fifth toes on the right foot. The skin on the amputated right upper extremity appeared normal except for an ulcer in the antecubital fossa and some blister(More)
OBJECTIVES The usefulness of BG as a marker has been reported in patients with pulmonary aspergillosis. However, no data have demonstrated the behavior of BG in sino-orbital IA. We encountered a case of sino-orbital IA and demonstrated changes in the BG level, radiological images, and pathological features. METHOD AND RESULTS A 63-year-old Japanese woman(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify factors determining poor outcome in children with acute otitis media (AOM). MATERIAL AND METHODS We considered the following factors in children with AOM: age; gender; the presence of group nursing; the presence of siblings; the duration of breastfeeding; and the type of bacteria isolated from the middle ear fluid (MEF) or(More)
No PCV lesions were seen before macular translocation surgery, and large polypoidal lesions involved the new macula 5 years postoperatively. The incidence of PCV is higher in Japanese than in Caucasian patients, and PCV lesions are observed primarily at the macula. In our case, PCV developed toward the displaced new macula from the original CNV, as it did(More)
No standard indications currently exist for surgical treatment of severe obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). We treated 15 patients with severe OSAS surgically, evaluated surgical indications, and evaluated surgical success. We retrospectively reviewed 15 cases of surgery for OSAS in which polysomnography met 2 or more criteria for the following(More)
The present study attempts to better understand the mechanism of injuries associated with direct lightning strikes. We reviewed the records of 256 individuals struck by lightning between 1965 and 1999, including 56 people who were killed. Basal skull fracture, intracranial haemorrhage, pulmonary haemorrhage, or solid organ rupture was suspected in three men(More)
