CT features of metanephric adenoma: a case report and review of the literature.

Metanephric adenoma (MA) is an extremely rare, benign neoplasm of the kidney. Ultrasound and computed tomography (CT) features of a case of MA in a 49-year-old woman were presented in this paper to enrich imaging manifestations of this rare entity. At plane CT, a solid mass with calcification spots was noted. After iv contrast agency, the mass showed slight irregular peripheral enhancement in the corticomedullary phase, which was obviously lower than surrounding renal cortex. Slowly filling-in was noticed i...


Massive alveolar haemorrhage: a rare life threatening complication of Wegener's granulomatosis-report of a rare case.

Massive diffuse alveolar haemorrhage (DAH) is an unusual, frequently life threatening and still treatable complication of Wegener's granulomatosis (WG) associated with mortality in more than 66% of cases. DAH is a syndrome that can be a manifestation of variety of disorders. WG, a multisystem necrotising granulomatous vasculitis should always be considered as a possible etiological factor in these patients with or without involvement of other systems, as an early diagnosis and aggressive management with cyt...


Lymphoepithelial carcinoma arising from the maxillary antrum: a clinicopathological report of a rare lesion in an unusual site.

Lymphoepithelial carcinoma (LEC) of the maxillary sinus is an exceedingly rare malignancy. It may be asymptomatic or present with non-specific obstructive nasal symptoms which makes its pre-operative diagnosis very challenging. This report describes our clinical and radiological findings in a 45-year-old Indian female patient with locally-advanced LEC of the right maxillary antrum. Histopathological and immunohistochemical results are also discussed. The case was effectively managed by external beam radioth...

The Role of MRI in Prostate Cancer Active Surveillance.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer diagnosis in American men, excluding skin cancer. The clinical behavior of prostate cancer varies from low-grade, slow growing tumors to high-grade aggressive tumors that may ultimately progress to metastases and cause death. Given the high incidence of men diagnosed with prostate cancer, conservative treatment strategies such as active surveillance are critical in the management of prostate cancer to reduce therapeutic complications of radiation therapy or radical ...


Expression of Phosphocitrate-Targeted Genes in Osteoarthritis Menisci.

Phosphocitrate (PC) inhibited calcium crystal-associated osteoarthritis (OA) in Hartley guinea pigs. However, the molecular mechanisms remain elusive. This study sought to determine PC targeted genes and the expression of select PC targeted genes in OA menisci to test hypothesis that PC exerts its disease modifying activity in part by reversing abnormal expressions of genes involved in OA. We found that PC downregulated the expression of numerous genes classified in immune response, inflammatory response, a...
