Surgery for thymic epithelial tumours (TETs) with pleural involvement is infrequently performed. Thus, the value of surgical therapy for primary or recurrent TETs with pleural involvement is not suffi...
Neuroblastoma is the most common extracranial solid tumor in children and accounts for 8% to 10% of all childhood cancers. The spread of metastases is both lymphatic and hematogenous. Hematogenous rou...
Despite similar mechanisms driving pleural fluid accumulation, the causes of pleural effusions in children differ significantly from that of adults. When a pleural effusion re-occurs in an adult, lite...
In case of undiagnosed pleural effusions, it is necessary to conduct thoracentesis with pleural fluid (PF) cytology. Yet, sensitivity of PF cytology is widely variable as a result of sample size, expe...
Tuberculosis (TB) remains as an important public health problem worldwide. Pleural tuberculosis is the most prevalent form of extrapulmonary presentation in immunocompetent patients. ...
The aim of this study is to evaluate Image-defined Risk Factors (IDRF) in patients with neuroblastoma, at the time of their initial presentation, as a prognostic factor for prediction of s...
Medical scientists want to find better ways to treat neuroblastoma and to find ways to prevent the tumor from growing back. To do this, they need more information about the characteristics...
The purpose of this study is to determine the diagnostic utility of the device 'Electronic Nose' for Pleural TB, which is a Extra pulmonary TB form, compared with pleural biopsy, the curre...
Malignant pleural effusion is a common clinical problem with median survival of approximately 6 months thus efficient management of Malignant pleural effusion is important. In patients wit...
A rare neoplasm of large B-cells usually presenting as serious effusions without detectable tumor masses. The most common sites of involvement are the pleural, pericardial, and peritoneal cavities. It is associated with HUMAN HERPESVIRUS 8, most often occurring in the setting of immunodeficiency.
Presence of fluid in the pleural cavity resulting from excessive transudation or exudation from the pleural surfaces. It is a sign of disease and not a diagnosis in itself.
Presence of fluid in the PLEURAL CAVITY as a complication of malignant disease. Malignant pleural effusions often contain actual malignant cells.
An enlarged THYROID GLAND with at least 50% of the gland situated behind the STERNUM. It is an unusual presentation of an intrathoracic goiter. Substernal goiters frequently cause compression on the TRACHEA leading to deviation, narrowing, and respiratory symptoms.
Suppurative inflammation of the pleural space.
