Images in pediatrics: The thymic sail sign and thymic wave sign.

Summary of "Images in pediatrics: The thymic sail sign and thymic wave sign."

The authors present a radiographic image portraying the "thymic sail sign" and the "thymic wave sign," both normal findings in infant radiographs and present a short description of these signs. These are distinguished from pathologic findings such as the "spinnaker-sail sign" in pneumomediastinum.

Thymus cancers : A clinical observation.

Thymic tumors including thymomas, thymic carcinomas, and thymic carcinoid tumors are rare tumors with an incidence of 0.13/100,000.

Bronchial and Thymic Carcinoid Tumors.

Bronchial and thymic carcinoids are rare. We present epidemiologic data and potential risk factors. The approach to bronchial and thymic carcinoid patients is discussed, from the initial diagnosis and...

Automatic Gunn and Salus sign quantification in retinal images.

Prolonged hypertension can lead to abnormal changes in the retinal vasculature, including sclerosis and thickening of the arteriole walls. These changes can cause compression (Gunn's sign) and deflect...

Adjuvant Therapy for Thymic Carcinoma - A Decade of Experience in a Taiwan National Teaching Hospital.

Thymic carcinomas are rare tumors for which surgical resection is the first treatment of choice. The role of adjuvant treatment after surgery is unknown because of limited available data. The present ...

Pregnancy-induced thymic involution is associated with suppression of chemokines essential for T-lymphoid progenitor homing.

During normal pregnancy, the thymus undergoes a severe reduction in size and thymocyte output, which may contribute to maternal-fetal tolerance. It is presently unknown whether the pregnancy-induced t...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A neoplasm originating from thymic tissue, usually benign, and frequently encapsulated. Although it is occasionally invasive, metastases are extremely rare. It consists of any type of thymic epithelial cell as well as lymphocytes that are usually abundant. Malignant lymphomas that involve the thymus, e.g., lymphosarcoma, Hodgkin's disease (previously termed granulomatous thymoma), should not be regarded as thymoma. (From Stedman, 25th ed)

Yellow discoloration of the SKIN; MUCOUS MEMBRANE; and SCLERA in the NEWBORN. It is a sign of NEONATAL HYPERBILIRUBINEMIA. Most cases are transient self-limiting (PHYSIOLOGICAL NEONATAL JAUNDICE) occurring in the first week of life, but some can be a sign of pathological disorders, particularly LIVER DISEASES.

T-cell enhancement of the B-cell response to thymic-dependent antigens.

A thymus-dependent nonapeptide found in normal blood. Stimulates the formation of E rosettes and is believed to be involved in T-cell differentiation.

The return of a sign, symptom, or disease after a remission.
