Brain Metastasis in a Patient with a Sarcomatoid Variant RCC with Well-controlled Extracerebral Metastases by Temsirolimus.
Summary of "Brain Metastasis in a Patient with a Sarcomatoid Variant RCC with Well-controlled Extracerebral Metastases by Temsirolimus."
The sarcomatoid variant of metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC) has often an aggressive course and a poor prognosis, particularly when accompanied with brain metastasis. Case Report: We describe the case of a patient with sarcomatoid variant RCC in whom brain metastasis was observed as a new lesion during treatment with temsirolimus, despite other extracerebral metastatic lesions being well-controlled and progression-free.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A transmissible spongiform encephalopathy of cattle associated with abnormal prion proteins in the brain. Affected animals develop excitability and salivation followed by ATAXIA. This disorder has been associated with consumption of SCRAPIE infected ruminant derived protein. This condition may be transmitted to humans, where it is referred to as variant or new variant CREUTZFELDT-JAKOB SYNDROME. (Vet Rec 1998 Jul 25;143(41):101-5)
A species of POLYOMAVIRUS, originally isolated from the brain of a patient with progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy. The patient's initials J.C. gave the virus its name. Infection is not accompanied by any apparent illness but serious demyelinating disease can appear later, probably following reactivation of latent virus.
A defective variant of MEASLES VIRUS that has been isolated from the brain tissue of patients with subacute sclerosing panencephalitis.
A variant of epilepsy characterized by continuous focal jerking of a body part over a period of hours, days, or even years without spreading to other body regions. Contractions may be aggravated by movement and are reduced, but not abolished during sleep. ELECTROENCEPHALOGRAPHY demonstrates epileptiform (spike and wave) discharges over the hemisphere opposite to the affected limb in most instances. The repetitive movements may originate from the CEREBRAL CORTEX or from subcortical structures (e.g., BRAIN STEM; BASAL GANGLIA). This condition is associated with Russian Spring and Summer encephalitis (see ENCEPHALITIS, TICK BORNE); Rasmussen syndrome (see ENCEPHALITIS); MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS; DIABETES MELLITUS; BRAIN NEOPLASMS; and CEREBROVASCULAR DISORDERS.
