We present a case of a 69-year-old man with primary hepatic carcinosarcoma who underwent computed tomography that revealed a hypervascular hepatic tumor with local dense calcification. Gadolinium-ethoxybenzyl-diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid (Gd-EOB-DTPA)-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging revealed hyperintense lesions in the hepatobiliary phase that… (More)
We present a case of atresia of the right atrial ostium of the coronary sinus. Recognizing this anomaly is important during catheter ablation or cardiac surgery, which could be noninvasively evaluated by multidetector CT.

A computed tomography… (More)
A 67-year-old man with elevated hepatobiliary enzymes was referred to our hospital for further examination.

We diagnosed locally advanced unresectable hilar cholangiocarcinoma, and performed 5 courses of… (More)
A 45-year-old woman, who had had rheumatoid arthritis for 12 years, had three attacks of cerebral embolism over two months and died after the final attack.

In the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma, atypical, off guideline multidisciplinary approaches are sometimes effective. A 70-year-old man was diagnosed with multiple hepatocellular carcinomas, multiple bone metastases, and a right adrenal metastasis. Sunitinib was started and the primary hepatic lesions and bone metastases disappeared. However, his… (More)
