18F-FDG Uptake in a T2 Hypointense Paraspinal Mass.

Summary of "18F-FDG Uptake in a T2 Hypointense Paraspinal Mass."

We present a paraspinal amyloidoma found incidentally in a 77-year-old man during lymphoma workup by F-FDG PET/CT. A solitary FDG-avid paraspinal lesion was seen at T11-T12. MRI showed T2 hypointensity and enhancement. Lymphoma was considered the primary differential due to FDG uptake, but biopsy revealed nodules of extracellular acellular homogeneous material with apple-green birefringence on Congo red stain consistent with amyloidoma. Spinal amyloidoma is rare with few cases reported so far in literature.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A mass spectrometry technique using two (MS/MS) or more mass analyzers. With two in tandem, the precursor ions are mass-selected by a first mass analyzer, and focused into a collision region where they are then fragmented into product ions which are then characterized by a second mass analyzer. A variety of techniques are used to separate the compounds, ionize them, and introduce them to the first mass analyzer. For example, for in GC-MS/MS, GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY-MASS SPECTROMETRY is involved in separating relatively small compounds by GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY prior to injecting them into an ionization chamber for the mass selection.

An analytical method used in determining the identity of a chemical based on its mass using mass analyzers/mass spectrometers.

Drugs that inhibit the transport of neurotransmitters into axon terminals or into storage vesicles within terminals. For many transmitters, uptake determines the time course of transmitter action so inhibiting uptake prolongs the activity of the transmitter. Blocking uptake may also deplete available transmitter stores. Many clinically important drugs are uptake inhibitors although the indirect reactions of the brain rather than the acute block of uptake itself is often responsible for the therapeutic effects.

Drugs that block the transport of DOPAMINE into axon terminals or into storage vesicles within terminals. Most of the ADRENERGIC UPTAKE INHIBITORS also inhibit dopamine uptake.
