Bronchial Carcinoid Tumors with Massive Osseous Metaplasia: A Case Report and Review of the Literature.

Summary of "Bronchial Carcinoid Tumors with Massive Osseous Metaplasia: A Case Report and Review of the Literature."

Bronchial carcinoid tumors are primary lung neoplasms thought to originate from neuroendocrine cells, i.e. Kulchitsky cells, in the bronchial mucosa, although the type of cellular origin has not been clearly understood. A 61-year-old male patient underwent surgery and microscopic examination of the specimen revealed an anastomosing trabecular bony structure among the nests of tumor cells with round nucleus, granular chromatin, and large eosinophilic cytoplasm. Our case has been deemed worthy of being presented as bronchial carcinoid tumor with exaggerated osseous metaplasia.

Evaluation of the Prognostic Significance of TNM Staging Guidelines in Lung Carcinoid Tumors.

The Tumor Lymph Node and Metastasis (TNM) classification for lung cancer, originally designed for non-small cell lung carcinoma, is applied to staging of bronchopulmonary carcinoid tumors. The validit...

Reconstruction of Long Noncircumferential Tracheal or Carinal Resections with Bronchial Flaps.

Removal of tumors that invade the trachea or carina often results in a massive defect that exceeds the limits of end-to-end anastomosis. The purpose of this study is to discuss the clinical value of b...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A symptom complex associated with CARCINOID TUMOR and characterized by attacks of severe flushing of the skin, diarrheal watery stools, bronchoconstriction, sudden drops in blood pressure, edema, and ascites. The carcinoid tumors are usually located in the gastrointestinal tract and metastasize to the liver. Symptoms are caused by tumor secretion of serotonin, prostaglandins, and other biologically active substances. Cardiac manifestations constitute CARCINOID HEART DISEASE. (Dorland, 27th ed; Stedman, 25th ed)

Thermal destruction of the excess bronchial SMOOTH MUSCLE tissue with heat delivered through a catheter assembly attached to a BRONCHOSCOPE. It is often used to control BRONCHIAL HYPERREACTIVITY in severe ASTHMA for better AIRWAY MANAGEMENT.

Tumors or cancer of the BRONCHI.

Left bronchial arteries arise from the thoracic aorta, the right from the first aortic intercostal or the upper left bronchial artery; they supply the bronchi and the lower trachea.

Cardiac manifestation of gastrointestinal CARCINOID TUMOR that metastasizes to the liver. Substances secreted by the tumor cells, including SEROTONIN, promote fibrous plaque formation in ENDOCARDIUM and its underlying layers. These deposits cause distortion of the TRICUSPID VALVE and the PULMONARY VALVE eventually leading to STENOSIS and valve regurgitation.
