  • [Transliterated title] Utilidad de la cirugía videotoracoscópica en el diagnóstico de los nódulos pulmonares solitarios.
  • OBJECTIVES: Various approaches are used for the diagnosis and treatment of solitary pulmonary nodules (SPN) of unknown origin.
  • New imaging techniques and nuclear medicine have provided more information about SPN, but surgical removal is still the most sensitive and specific way to obtain a correct analysis of the lesion.
  • Histopathology: hamartoma: 11; fibrous nodule: 10; bronchiolitis obliterans: 1; pneumoconiosis: 1; mesenchymal tumor: 3; inflammatory pseudotumor: 14; mucormycosis: 1; tuberculoma:17; lymphoma: 1; carcinoid tumor: 6; metastasis: 22; bronchogenic carcinoma: 95.
  • We consider it to be the technique of choice for the diagnosis of all SPN and for the treatment of some, such as benign nodules and solitary metastases.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Two years prior to her visit, she underwent transurethral resection of a bladder tumor, 5 cm in diameter.
  • Close re-evaluation of the pathological specimen lead to the final diagnosis of a benign inflammatory pseudotumor of the bladder as the tumor consisted of smooth muscle cells with white blood cell infiltration but without mitotic figures.
  • The tumor disappeared during the follow up period.
  • She was finally diagnosed with neuropathic bladder of unknown origin.
  • In this case, she had been suffering from recurrent cystitis about 6 years before the resection of bladder tumor and it was suggested that the occurrence of the inflammatory pseudotumor of bladder would be related with chronic urinary tract infection due to neuropathic bladder.
  • Urinary incontinence and urinary tract infection were controlled successfully with clean intermittent self-catheterization and adequate administration of antimicrobial drugs.
  • No tumor recurrence has been found up to the present time, 5 years after the resection of bladder tumor.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • We surveyed effusions and washes for expression of X-linked inhibitor of apoptosis (XIAP), a potent constituent of the inhibitor of apoptosis (IAP) family of proteins.
  • We performed an immunocytochemical survey of XIAP expression in cell blocks from benign and malignant body cavity effusions and washes.
  • In all, 116 alcohol-fixed, formalin postfixed paraffin-embedded cell block specimens from 82 pleural effusions, 22 ascites, 11 pelvic/peritoneal washes and one pericardial effusion were evaluated immunocytochemically with monoclonal anti-XIAP (#610763, BD Biosciences, San Jose, USA) 1:250, 4 degrees C x 72 h, and developed using EnVision-Plus reagents (Dako) and diaminobenzidine as chromagen.
  • The prevalence of staining for specific malignancies varied with the tissue of origin as follows: ovarian (13/13, 100%); lung (9/11, 82%), breast (6/13, 46%); gastric (4/7, 57%), colon (0/4, 0%), pancreas (2/3, 67%), gallbladder (1/1, 100%), fallopian tube (1/3, 33%), endometrial (6/7, 86%), mesothelioma (4/5, 80%), carcinoma of unknown primary (5/5, 100%) and hematopoietic malignancies (3/9, 33%).
  • Benign effusions (n = 35) were virtually XIAP-negative except for two cases (6%) in which histiocytes showed moderate staining.
  • XIAP immunostaining, when strong, allows for ready distinction of malignant from benign and reactive cell populations.
  • The degree of XIAP staining of tumor cells may be a means of identifying the most therapy-resistant cases (ie, those with strong XIAP expression), and allow additional triaging to XIAP-blocking drugs presently being developed and clinically tested.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Most solitary hyperfunctiong regions on thyroid scan consist of benign tissue.
  • This had been performed to search for a primitive tumor in a patient with bone metastasis.
  • Fine-needle aspiration cytology indicated the presence of neoplastic cells not of thyroid origin.
  • After further staging, the final diagnosis was stage IV E Burkitt-like lymphoma with the involvement of the bone and the thyroid.
  • As highlighted by the present report, performing fine-needle aspiration cytology should be always considered in the clinical context of a metastatic disease of unknown origin or when there are ultrasonography signs suggesting malignancy, even when the nodule is hyperfunctioning.
