  • [Title] [A case of unresectable advanced thymic carcinoma in an elderly woman responding to S-1 with good QOL maintained].
  • Because an anterior mediastinum tumor was noted by CT performed in the case of additional workup of left precordial pain noticed from approximately two months ago, she was admitted to our institution.
  • After hospitalization, CT-guided biopsy was performed, but did not lead to diagnosis.
  • Therefore, surgical biopsy was performed and the diagnosis was advanced thymic carcinoma with metastasis to the mediastinal lymph node, pericardium invasion and left lung invasion.
  • Measurement by CT showed the tumor had reduced to 58% and was judged to be PR.

  • [Title] Unusual scapular metastasis as initial manifestation of advanced nonseminomatous germ cell tumor of the mediastinum.
  • Primary malignant germ cell tumors of the mediastinum are relatively rare, occurring predominantly in young male adults, and have a poor prognosis.
  • We present a case of a 27-year-old man who initially experienced a persistent, intractable painful sensation over the right lower scapula despite taking an analgesic agent for 2 months.
  • Excisional biopsy of the scapula revealed a metastatic carcinoma, suggestive of nonseminomatous germ cell tumor origin.
  • Chest computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging showed a primary tumor mass in the anterior mediastinum.
  • The mediastinal tumor mass was markedly reduced in size and remission without evidence of tracer uptake by [(18)F]fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography examination.
  • Six months after chemotherapy, the patient received advanced surgical intervention to remove the mediastinal tumor, the pathologic features of which were similar to the previous scapular lesion.
