A 16-year-old young male experienced persistent headache, and brain computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging showed an abnormal mass with calcification in the right temporal lobe of the cerebrum. The tumor was located in the leptomeninges and cerebral cortex. In the leptomeninges, multiple calcified-fibrous nodules were noted. In this area(More)
CD9 is involved in cell growth, adhesion and motility and its expression is reported to be of prognostic significance in various types of human malignancies. We found increased cell migration in the mesothelioma cell lines MSTO-211H and TUM1 following in vitro shRNA-mediated knockdown of CD9 expression. We investigated CD9 expression in 112 malignant(More)
PURPOSE We report a very rare case of a fast-growing benign fibrous histiocytoma at the temporal bone. METHODS A 1-year-old girl was referred for investigation of a right temporal mass that increased during 2-week observation. Imaging studies showed a lytic, loculated skull tumor at the left temporal bone. On magnetic resonance imaging scans, the tumor(More)
OBJECT The differentiation of malignant lymphomas from gliomas or malignant gliomas by conventional MRI can be difficult. The authors studied Gd-enhanced MR images to obtain a differential diagnosis between malignant lymphomas and gliomas without central necrosis or cystic changes and investigated the diagnostic value of single-voxel proton MR spectroscopy(More)
By the radiological examination, differential diagnosis of asbestosis from chronic interstitial pneumonia such as IPF/UIP is difficult. The pathological features of asbestosis show the peribronchiolar fibrosis which suggest that asbestos fibers cause the inflammation of bronchioli. Therefore, the criteria for pathological diagnosis of asbestosis in 2010,(More)
OBJECTIVE High maximum standardized uptake values on [(18)F]-fluoro-2-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography are associated with inferior survival in non-small cell lung cancer. Here, we investigated the biological mechanisms underlying [(18)F]-fluoro-2-deoxyglucose uptake in non-small cell lung cancer. METHODS This study included 133 patients with(More)
The purpose of this study was to describe a trigeminal neuropathy caused by the perineural spread of an amyloidoma. A 62-year-old woman had an amyloidoma of the Gasserian ganglion that was hypointense on T2-weighted images; the lesion was enhanced by gadolinium on thin-slice magnetic resonance imaging. There was no evidence of systemic amyloidosis or(More)
OBJECTIVE Dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumor (DNT)-like neoplasms of the septum pellucidum are extremely rare. In this article, we report the familial occurrence of these neoplasms. CLINICAL PRESENTATION We report two cases of such neoplasms: Patient 1, a 42-year-old woman, and Patient 2, the 20-year-old nephew of Patient 1. Patient 1 experienced(More)
