Osteoplastic bone metastasis in esophageal squamous cell cancer: report of a case.
Summary of "Osteoplastic bone metastasis in esophageal squamous cell cancer: report of a case."
This report presents a case of esophageal squamous cell cancer with osteoplastic bone metastasis. A 58-year-old male patient underwent multimodality treatment for esophageal cancer. Sclerotic changes resembling bone metastasis from prostate cancer were detected in the 4th thoracic and the 5th lumber vertebral body soon after the adjuvant chemoradiotherapy. Systemic examinations revealed no primary cancer as a cause of osteoplastic bone metastasis and no esophageal cancer recurrence. A needle biopsy revealed metastases of esophageal squamous cell cancer with osteoplastic changes. Multiple sclerotic changes were detected in the systemic bones at that time, and new carcinomatous bilateral pleural effusion developed. The drastic systemic progression of the cancer caused the rapid deterioration of the patient's general condition.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Heparan Sulfate Proteoglycans
Ubiquitous macromolecules associated with the cell surface and extracellular matrix of a wide range of cells of vertebrate and invertebrate tissues. They are essential cofactors in cell-matrix adhesion processes, in cell-cell recognition systems, and in receptor-growth factor interactions. (From Cancer Metastasis Rev 1996; 15(2): 177-86; Hepatology 1996; 24(3): 524-32)
Carcinoma, Non-small-cell Lung
A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.
Neoplasms, Squamous Cell
Neoplasms composed of squamous cells of the epithelium. The concept does not refer to neoplasms located in tissue composed of squamous elements.
Inflammatory Breast Neoplasms
Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.
Carcinoma, Acinar Cell
A malignant tumor arising from secreting cells of a racemose gland, particularly the salivary glands. Racemose (Latin racemosus, full of clusters) refers, as does acinar (Latin acinus, grape), to small saclike dilatations in various glands. Acinar cell carcinomas are usually well differentiated and account for about 13% of the cancers arising in the parotid gland. Lymph node metastasis occurs in about 16% of cases. Local recurrences and distant metastases many years after treatment are common. This tumor appears in all age groups and is most common in women.

Endoscopic resection is a less invasive treatment than esophagectomy for superficial esophageal squamous cell carcinoma, but patients with lymph node metastasis need additional treatment after endosco...
Expression of PRL 3 protein was examined with immunohistochemistry in 60 cases of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) with matched lymph node metastasis (N=40) and 6 cases of esophageal adenocar...
OBJECTIVES:Long-term outcomes after endoscopic resection (ER) provide important information for the treatment of esophageal carcinoma. This study aimed to investigate the rates of survival and metasta...
Brain metastasis from esophageal carcinoma has been considered rare and survival following esophageal carcinoma with distant metastasis is poor. The purpose of this report was to clarify cumulative in...
BACKGROUND: We sought to identify genes associated with the progression and metastasis of esophageal squamous-cell cancer by comparing the expression profiles of normal, primary cancer, and metastatic...
Multi-Center Prospective Randomized Trial Comparing Standard Esophagectomy Against Chemo-Radiotherapy for Treatment of Squamous Esophageal Cancer – Early Results From the Chinese University Research Group for Esophageal Cancer (CURE)
A multicenter randomized comparison of primary esophagectomy against definitive chemoradiotherapy for the treatment of squamous esophageal cancer.
A higher percentage of radical resection is reported in studies using neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by surgery versus surgery alone for esophageal cancer. And neoadjuvant chemotherapy...
Irinotecan, as one new agent used in advanced esophageal carcinoma, has been shown to be effective and safe in western studies. Different with westerns, squamous carcinoma is the main path...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the treatment of loco-regional esophageal squamous cell carcinoma with cetuximab in combination with paclitaxel, cisplatin and radiation...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and immunological monitoring for peptide vaccination therapy using novel cancer testis antigens for locally advanced, recurrent, or meta...
